In addition to earning affiliate income, you might have a lot of success when you include CPA offers on your blog. These offers can be great because you get paid every time someone takes a certain action through your link. All you have to do is get set up with an affiliate network, find an appropriate offer, and strategically place links on your posts or blog in general.
Before you get started, it can be helpful to understand exactly what CPA is. CPA stands for “cost per action.” The action someone needs to take in order for you to get paid depends on the particular offer. In some cases, they may only have to enter in something like their zip code or e-mail address and you will get paid a set amount of money — usually a couple of dollars per lead. In other cases, the person will have to sign up for a free trial offer (and usually pay shipping) in order for you to get paid (these are often worth a lot more money!). Some offers do require that the person make a purchase as their action.
As you can see, there are some slight differences with this setup over standard affiliate marketing. You also have to note that you’ll usually find these offers with dedicated CPA networks; such as Hydra, Neverblue, Clickbooth, and others. You’ll need to put in an application to be accepted into these networks. If your application is rejected at first, just give them a call and show them that you are truly dedicated to having a profitable partnership.
Once you are approved, take a look at the offers that are available. The chances are good that there is something in there that will be enticing for the people in your niche. There are dating offers, baby and parenting offers, education offers, beauty and health offers, and so on. You may want to start out small with something like an e-mail or zip submit offer. You can place a banner or even text links on your blog. You will earn some money when people take the desired action.
Even though it can be tempting, do not to trick people into filling out these offers! In many cases, you cannot incentivize the offer (which means giving them something desired in return for filling out your form) because it’s against the rules of the CPA network or specific company. Just legitimately test and track the different CPA offers to see what will earn you the most money and be of the most value for your visitors.
You will want to pay careful attention to which CPA offers you choose to promote. That’s because some of them are set up as free trial offers and the government has been cracking down on the ones that are not legitimate. Only promote things you might go for yourself, and that you can feel good about offering your readers.
You’ll love promoting CPA offers because they often have higher conversions than standard affiliate sales. There is nothing better than knowing that you can make great money with these targeted offers!
