Need help and guidance with CPA Marketing

Hello guys, I wanted to make money online as an internet/affiliate marketer so I signed up at PeerFly and my application got accepted with my first try. I made some research before applying there.

Well, now to promote the offers I needed quality and targeted traffic so I also signed up at Leadbolt. To get started, I deposited there $100 and started promoting offers from Peerfly.

I filtered the products as per EPC value so I can also earn money with click-through and not just leads. But there is something which I don't understand, I took a biz/make money online offer (this also had good EPC & Con rate) from PeerFly and promoted it on leadbolt.

Although I received a good amount of impressions and clicks but I could not get any leads or EPC earnings. I don't understand what is the issue, so this is my request to experienced marketers to guide me and show me a way to pick the right offer and correct way to promote.

My journey has just started so show me the path, I'm ready to put all efforts and work hard. Thank you all!!!

    I've been promoting affiliate / CPA offers for over 17 years. So I'm totally biased and would choose CPA.

    My preference is to promote PPL (pay per lead) offers because there is no credit card / purchase required in order for someone to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher compared to an offer that requires a sale to be made.

    It's simply far easier to get someone to fill out a short form than to get them to pull out their credit card and make a purchase.

    Something to think about.

    On top of of what Diablo said,

    What type of traffic is leadbot?

    why not go with Bing? I find PPC is easier to convert then interruption-type impression traffic.

    you must approach them differently,

    with PPC they are looking for you, with impression-type traffic often times you need to take a shock and awe approach for them to click.

    all the best

      Sir I have spent $25 till now but I could not get even a single lead, I have attached an offer snapshot which I was promoting recently.



      Amount spent: $25
      Lead: 0
      EPC earnings: $0.00
      Campaign Targeting: USA

      I created a campaign at Leadbolt and spent $25 so far but no luck. Yes, I followed every single step for campaign targeting and other related stuff as mentioned at the offer's page.

      My account manager also suggested me to promote that offer as it has high converting percentage. But, I don't understand my campaign is getting good amount of impressions and clicks but no leads.

    Is the offer you're promoting a PPL or cost per sale offer?

      I'm promoting only PPL or simple lead gen offers but so far I have not gained even a single lead using Leadbolt. Till now I have lost $25 and still waiting for a brief or quick help report from any experienced marketer.

    Well, Vindale research is not a new offer. Consider, most of your target audience may have already seen that offer a dozen times. What kind of ads do you use? In app or pop or native?
    Have you considered split testing: 1. several different offers 2. several different landing pages for each offer ?

    If you want to do CPA marketing that way I can recommend Charles NGO's blog and free beginner walkthrough.
    This will open your eyes I think
    Good luck mister

    Congratulations for getting started, launching a campaign and getting data. When I used Leadbolt, I was focused on promoting mobile cpa offers. My advice (as you already have deposited money on leadbolt) is to look for a case study on youtube or google. Look for a case study of someone who has used leadbolt successfully for CPA offers. Then model the case study by promoting a similar offer, similar banner or ad, use similar landing page (if shown). If you don't find any case study specifically using leadbolt, you may search for case studies using mobile banner ad networks or mobile ad networks.

    I may also advise that you try to get accepted to more cpa networks. That way you can pick and promote offers that are on more than one network (potential proof of good epc). You may also split test similar offers to see which one produces the best return on investment. As far as a CPA network with many mobile offers, you may check Clickdealer for instance.

      Thank you for your tips I will definitely do a research as per your suggestions. However I think LeadBolt is not much popular compared to its competitors.

      I also signed up at Adscend Media and CPA lead but don't know which kind of campaigns should I promote.

      Can you share your experiences of your marketing journey and which networks are you currently working with. I don't want you to reveal every single thing but atleast guide me as I am struggling badly and already in loss.

      Thank you.

    In CPA, you get paid for completing an action that could be as simple as getting a user to fill up a form or take any other desired action. Whereas in affiliate marketing, you get paid when somebody make a purchase. CPA is considered to be easier than affiliate marketing for a simple reason; here you get paid for sending a lead. Once the traffic you send converts into a lead, after that it's the job of the particular network to convert into the sales. Anyhow, you would be paid for the lead.
