CPA Affiliate Programs- The Best Networks

We had discussed the CPA (Cost Per Action) marketing model in our previous articles. You can read about what CPA is and what are CPA affiliate programs in my article about why CPA programs are very good for affiliate marketing. In this article, we will discuss a few CPA networks and how to enroll in these networks.

The Best CPA affiliate Networks

To promote CPA programs you would first require a network where you can get a range of affiliate programs. You need a network where you can get affiliate programs in various niches and also affiliate programs for different countries. Also, since more and more people are moving towards smartphones, so you need networks who can provide you with great mobile CPA offers. Here is a list of 5 CPA networks which I find are very good:-

  1. Peerfly– This is an excellent affiliate network with affiliates in over 165 countries and thousands of programs to choose from. It has offers for nearly every niche and it has excellent training modules to help the affiliates.

2. Maxbounty– Formed in 2004, it is one of the most popular affiliate networks in the world. The sheer fact that it has been around for so long makes it one of the most respected sites in the CPA affiliate domain.

3. Clickbooth– Probably one of the most popular affiliate marketing sites in the world, it is said that Clickbooth pays more than $100 million a year in affiliate commissions.

4. CPAway–  Voted consistently amongst the top 10 CPA networks, CPAway has a robust infrastructure and support to help you succeed in your CPA programs.

5. Above All Offers– Although this is one of the newest networks, still I recommend this because this is also one f the fastest growing. It has a great support team and is definitely an extremely dependable network.

Joining CPA Affiliate Networks

Once you find out the best CPA affiliate networks and decide on who to join, then you will have to apply in that network for an affiliate position. Actually, these networks are extremely reputable and thus they all have a screening procedure before they allow any new affiliate to join. The procedure is simple but effective.

Normally, you would have to fill a form where you need to give details about yourself, your experience in affiliate marketing, and details on the methods you would be using to promote the programs. They even allow newbies to join, so be careful and do not give false credentials just to push your way through. If you are honest, chances are that you will be selected without much hassle.

After that, you need to upload a few documents to prove your identity and after that, an affiliate manager will go through your application. He would get back to you with fresh queries if any, and if you can answer them properly you should get selected.

Now although, this looks difficult but it is extremely important that these networks do these checks to ensure high-quality advertisers and publishers. Like I said, if you answer everything truthfully you should get approved without any hassle.

The Unconventional Guide to Nigerian Scams

Only a few days back I got a mail from one of my subscribers about how one of his friends have been recently made a victim of Nigerian Scams. He informed that his friend had got a mail promising him Grants and later was scammed $850 as fees to transfer that fund. Such stories can be heard throughout the world and emails with such fake Promises hit our mailboxes every day. Welcome to the world of Nigerian Scams, probably one of the oldest types of online scam going around.

Nigerian 419 Scam Alert

These type of scams are popularly called Nigerian 419 scams primarily because these scams had started surfacing from Nigeria and 419 is the legal section in Nigeria against such scammers. Although this had started in Nigeria, but it is now going on throughout the world and is still conning thousands of people every day.

This normally starts with an email hitting your Inbox, or a text message informing you that you are to receive a huge amount of funds from some source. The source varies, but the objective is the same. You may be informed that you have received a lottery which was done on random email IDs, you may be told that you have been selected for a grant, or you may be informed that someone has died in a distant country without any heir and the money can be transferred to you.

The objective is simple. They intend to use this hook as a bait to attract your interest. Once your interest is captured, they will do regular follow-ups telling you that how they have started the procedure of transferring the funds. Now once they see that you are too eager and have completely taken the bait, they will suddenly demand money in some format or the other. The most common method is to ask for advance fees for the transfer, or fees that have to be paid to the government for the transfer etc. They will be following up regularly to ensure that you pay the fees.

Once you have paid the fees, they may try a few more times to con you into paying more fees or may just be satisfied with the one-time haul. But you can be sure of one thing, there will be no money coming to your account. In case you have paid any money, then, unfortunately, it’s bad news for you. You have been scammed and you can now say bye bye to your dreams of getting rich overnight.

Protect Yourself

Remember, self help is the best help when it comes to protecting yourself from scams. Keep the following in mind whenever you see a financial offer:-

  1. Never send money or give Credit Card details to anyone whom you do not know or trust.
  2. Do not accept money for someone else, in return of a commission. Remember, receiving someone else’s money in your account is a part of money laundering and is illegal.
  3. If you have any doubts about an offer, it is best to avoid it. If still you are enticed, take advice from someone who you trust or someone with enough legal knowledge to help you.
  4. Do a search on the internet for any offer or name of person who is reaching you. Chances are you will find enough proof that you are to be scammed.

Most of all, remember if anything seems to good to be true, then it actually is a scam. Avoid such get rich quick plans and schemes and you will definitely be saved from scams.

Why CPA Marketing Will Make You Question Everything??

How often we come across people who go on cribbing about the fact that they are making no money as an online marketer?? I guess we read reviews and comments from these people every day as to how online marketing has been absolutely useless for them. Well, folks, I have news for you. It’s time to question yourself and question all the methods you have used to make market your affiliate products. Let’s make this clear. You have been missing out if you have not tried CPA marketing.

CPA Marketing??? What’s That???

CPA stand for “Cost Per Action”. In simple words, an affiliate gets paid when a user visits their website and takes a specific action. It may be filling up of a form, or filling an Opt-in, or any other action. Normally, an affiliate promotes an offer which has no direct selling. The affiliate will have a link on his website, which when click will take the user or visitor to the landing page of the CPA offer. Once there, if the visitor takes the necessary action (Filling up of the form or opt-in or any other action as prescribed in the offer) then the affiliate will get his commission.

CPA-marketingAdvantages of CPA marketing

The biggest advantage of CPA marketing is the fact that the affiliate can earn money without selling anything. It is easier to engage your website visitor when he knows that he need not take out his credit card when he visits your website. So, when you post an offer which has an easy action to perform it is not very difficult to get a conversion from your visitor.

This is one of the primary reasons CPA marketing programs have a much higher rate of conversion than your sales affiliate programs. Yes, the payouts per conversion may not be too high, but that issue is negated by the fact the conversions are much higher, and thus it provides a great method to boost your income.

Another great thing about CPA marketing is that you normally can find CPA offers about nearly every niche you can think off. Thus you can be sure to find plenty of deals to market in the CPA space.

How to Find CPA Offers??

The best place to find CPA offers is by visiting www.offervault.com . This place is probably the google of CPA networks. You can look for offers available in your niche, then directly apply to the network which is giving that offer.

After you have applied to the network, you will normally have to go through a screening process. Remember, this screening process is not to make your life difficult as an affiliate marketer, but primarily to ensure that they are getting the right affiliate marketers and not spammers. If you provide the details properly, there should not be issues with your registration and you can start promoting these offers after that.

You can also directly join CPA program networks like Peerfly or Clickbooth. You can also get CPA programs at Clickbank.

How Traffic Exchanges Aren’t As Bad As You Think

Well, it’s true. Traffic exchanges or Traffic Exchange programs are not as bad as they are normally perceived to be. Let us understand in details the pros and cons of Traffic exchange programs.

What is Traffic Exchange??

A traffic exchange program is a program where you gain free traffic to your website in exchange for you spending some time on other websites. Basically, you would take membership to traffic exchange websites, other members would visit your website and in return, you would visit their websites.

Advantages of using traffic exchange programs

The biggest advantage of using traffic exchange programs is the ability to generate free traffic. Normally when you enrol in a traffic exchange program, you are supposed to browse websites of other members. You get some credit based on the time you have spent on other member websites, and you can redeem these credits by getting other members to visit your websites. Normally no costs are involved unless you ae not willing to browse other sites and want to buy credits. Thus traffic exchange programs would help you generate a lot of traffic to your website for free.

Also, most good traffic exchange programs normally ensure that exchanges are happening in related niches. SO people who would be visiting your website would be from niches with similar interest. Thus the traffic would be targetted to some extent.

Traffic exchange programs definitely help you boost your Alexa rank, and it is really profitable in that respect. Traffic exchange programs can help you get more traffic in, and that really can’t be a bad thing?? Right??

Negatives of Traffic Exchanges

The biggest issue with traffic exchange programs is that the traffic which is visiting your website is primarily doing so not because of hs will, but to generate traffic for his own website. I mean, this traffic is not coming to your website because they are interested in your content, but they are just coming because they would like more people to visit their sites.

So they would not really be interested in reading your content and buying your products. Thus very few sales can be expected from this type of traffic. Also, a lot of these members would not even go through your site properly but would try to visit as many member sites as possible in their time slot in order to gain more credit. This can increase your bounce rate and hit your site rankings.

Another issue with traffic exchange programs is that Google does not allow Adsense on traffic exchange websites. This is because sometimes there are mindless clicking in these kind of sites by random visitors on the Adsense ads. This leads to weaker conversions and Google is absolutely strict on fake Adsense clicks.

In a Nutshell

Although the conversion rates of this kind of traffic to sales is very low, still this is a proven way of driving free traffic to your website. If you are not using Adsense on your website then you can definitely use traffic exchange programs. Remember, they are free sources of traffic, and few sales are definitely better than no sales.
