Which way to drive traffic to your CPA offers?

6 replies
Hello,
I started CPA marketing in January on MAXBounty, and I tried promoting email submits thinking it will be a lot easier than any other offer type. I could not even make a dime, unfortunately.

Although I did not invest any money, investing my time and seeing no profit was heart-breaking. I mainly promoted using an Instagram account and a landing page to redirect to the offer. I could get exactly only 40 clicks on my offer link for a whole month...which is pretty lame.
I thought about building a blog and promoting offers there... But basically, I don't know how to drive (targeted) traffic.
Is it wrong to use an automation tool for my Instagram account?
Can you help with any method to promote a CPA offer? Free and paid traffic?
Thanks in advance for your advice.

      Well CPA is a very good method to earn fast. Native Ads can help you in good way.. But SEO with cpa can takes upto 4 5 months and of course you need some genuine articles up to 1000 words. And after that you need backlinks which means you need atleast $500 for this project... Hope You got it..

    So you have been at this a whole month and determined its the process that is at fault? Or maybe even the offer itself?

    Part of learning internet marketing is learning and understanding why something isn't working, and making adjustments to make it work This in itself is a process and this process takes TIME. 30 days is NOT enough time to call it quits. 6 months and MAYBE that could be the case.

    So when we are talking about e-mail anything there are some variables that have to be understood. #1 most important is "Open Rate". do you know what your open rate has been? what does open rate tell you? It gives you an idea of deliverability of your message, and more important how compelling your email title is to make someone click on it and open the e-mail

    So forget the offer.. its absolutely useless if the e-mail is not opened. The FIRST thing you need to work on is developing a title that gets clicked. Testing a title is NOT sending 5 e-mails and figuring out no one clicked on it.. its sending out 100, 1000 or MORE. to determine a VALID open rate

    An aspect of open rate is also who it is you are targeting with these emails... are you targeting or just shot gun blasting? You need a list that in one way or another may have an interest in what it is you are offering... The more you can understand what that interest may be, the more likely they will click.

    If I want to sell womens shoes, it would make sense not to send emails to guys correct? If I am selling 4 inch heels it makes sense not to offer those to women that are 40 or over and 14 and younger.. so getting e-mail address' of women 15 to 39 might be a goal. This is called demographics.

    Demographics according to a dictionary is " statistical data relating to the population and particular groups within it. "

    Understanding specifically who you need to be targeting ( sending e-mails to ) in relation to the optimal target of the offer you are presenting is pretty critical to obtain any amount of success.

    This stuff may not be rocket science.. but there is without question an amount of science involved.

    Yes you may have been putting in a lot of work.. I understand your frustration... but now its time to start educating yourself on the finer points of what you want to do... start implementing, and test test test until you obtain success. Giving up and quiting after 1 month and repeating that over and over is going to get you no where.

    You want short term returns sell stuff on e-bay.. you want to be in it for the long haul test and develop a strategy that will not only create success in what you are trying to do now, but allowing you to take that gained knowledge and extend it to any project you may have in the future.

    to be blunt.. all you have right now is a pattern of failure.. to REALLY move forward.. you have to turn a failure into a success before you more forward. If you fail fail and fail moving forward.. you will perpetually continue that pattern. It takes breaking that pattern and working thru to a success and duplicating that success into a pattern of success success success.

    Hope that Helps!

    Hey man. I had a really long response, but it disappeared for some reason so Im going to make it short now.

    Follow these steps:
    1. Pick a sub-niche (not fitness, but body building)
    2. Chose ONE platform (I would recommend Instagram -> it is the platform with one of the biggest engagements)
    3. Become the authority there (collaborate with other pages in the same sub-niche, repost viral vids/pics from the niche, create your own unique/branded content as much as possible + use Instagram Stories)
    4. Grow it ORGANICALLY (never ever use automation softwares) to around 1000 to 2000
    5. Start doing what I call "VALUE, VALUE, VALUE, SELL!" (as Gary Vee explains it) which means making 3 posts/stories that help people(provide value) and then pitch them on what you're selling)
    6. Make sure you engage with your audience (they're the lifeblood of your affiliate business- yes it's still a business)
    7. Stick to ONLY one platform (again, I prefer Instagram) and become master in it before moving on with another platform

    Advanced: Create a website/ use sales funnels to collect emails and start using Email marketing using the same VALUE VALUE VALUE SALE tactic

    Hope that helps!

    I use Instagram too.
    Is it possible that all Instagram users have already converted for someone else's offer?

    LIke for example, if you are promoting an email-submit offer, if I had already sent my email via someone else's link, I can not send again though yours.

    ---I think that's my case because I have 115 clicks on my landing page since January 25, and 66 being from my targeted location (the US) for only 2 conversions!!

    What do you think is the problem?

    Point n°4, '' Grow it ORGANICALLY (never ever use automation software) to around 1000 to 2000''

    Why should not I use automation tools? there is an Auto-follow, Auto-unfollow, Auto-comment, Auto-Direct message, Auto-like, I can target hashtags, locations an accounts and also monitor the speed of execution of the automation... By the way, YWhat did you mean by 1000 to 2000 what...?

      well automation gets your account shut down or shadowed or or and or... if this is a long term thing... just stay away from the automation.

      what I ment about the 1000 or more... your own numbers as an example.. 115 clicks 2 conversions.. more importantly 66 clicks in the actual target for 2 conversions.. that's a 3% conversion rate.. and MANY would be happy with that... The issue is your not at scale with this.. you have 100's and not 1000's or 10,000's across your offer.

      The reality is your offer is right now converting, and decently at that.. but you cant make a living on 2 buys... more conversions is directly related to more traffic... more traffic that is TARGETTED to YOUR offer and obviously the location of your offer The States... more traffic MORE MONEY....

      NOW you have to figure out how to bring this to scale.. and the HOW is more content that draws more eyes across your timeline that creates more traffic. More content... more commenting.. sharing and other wise, it is called "SOCIAL" for a reason.

      Your on the right track... now its just time to put in the work.
