CPA is abbreviated as Cost Per Action. In simple words, you get paid in terms of commission or share when someone takes an action on the products by clicking on your affiliate link.
Are you a newbie in affiliate marketing? Or want to apply to some affiliate network and figuring out how to get accepted by CPA networks?
Then, this article is for you.
I give out certain tips on how get accepted into CPA network in this blog post. And knowing this is very important because acceptance of your application into various CPA networks is based on definite criteria.
In case of affiliate network, you can get accepted automatically. So let’s focus on entering into CPA network for now.
First, let’s understand why they have kept approval process?
There is a possibility of fraud in these networks, as there are some offers, which doesn’t require credit card information to go with it for their affiliates.
Therefore, to protect their brand, the networks have an approval process.
Remember, an affiliate can become a millionaire by getting $1,000,000 of random people to fill out a form.
If you’re a newbie in this field, networks like Clickdealer, Avazu might deny your application, as they look for some CPA experience. My application was rejected by Clickdealer, when I applied as a fresher.
Here are the best CPA networks in which you can get accepted with less effort and they are trust worthy too.
- Share a Sale
- Revenue Allies
You can view the offers only when you’re accepted by the network.
When you apply to become a member as an affiliate or publisher, you get a form, where you need to give your details. And be honest while completing the form.
As I said earlier, the information must be true in all aspect of your internet marketing experience. Even though you are newbie be honest because they screen the application to avoid scammers not to reject newbie affiliates.
If you have your own website, chances are more to get accepted. Almost, every CPA network expects you to have your own website or blog to approve your application.
You can use free platform like Blogspot or WordPress to get started and apply for these networks. And convey the message that you deal with PPC direct linking.
What is PPC direct linking?
Direct linking your adwords PPC campaign to affiliate networks like SaS (ShareASale), Teespring campaigns, Amazon etc. Here is an article that clearly explains the linking relation from Google Adwords to various affiliate networks.
Therefore, the importance of your blog or website doesn’t come into play.
Once you send the application, you will get an immediate response through their auto responder. Give a call with the phone number provided in that mail or connect with Skype. Below I have mentioned some of the questions Clickdealer’s quality assurance manager asked me when I got connected with her in Skype.
- What traffic sources do you use?
- What offers do you normally run?
- What geo do you work with?
- What other CPA networks do you work for?
Be prepared with the answers and while replying to “what other CPA networks do you work for?” mention some of the CPA networks to show that you have knowledge about it. You can also introduce yourself as PPC marketer and perform direct to merchant.
In case, if you are rejected don’t worry there is always second chance. But keep in mind, never forget to ask them the reason behind rejecting your application. So that next time you can correct yourself before making an entry.
