How to earn from CPA for a beginner?

Hi,
I am a total beginner and in my final year of college. I will be graduating in June 2013 and I am new to making money online. I would like to have a full time income online if possible before I graduate. I was thinking of going with CPA. But I wanted to know how can I make money using CPA as I have the amount only to invest for a domain and hosting in the starting. I will not be able to go for any paid traffic. I don't mind learning stuff first like SEO, HTML and so on. If possible, I would like to know using which other sources can I earn money online as I totally don't want to depend on CPA offers.

I hope to hear some positive answers soon.

Kind Regards

Hi blueblood90,

Welcome to Affilorama! :)

You earn from CPA when a visitor on your site completes an action required by the advertiser. That means if you post my ad for a survey, for example, and you have a user who clicks on the ad and completes the survey, then you get paid.

It can be difficult to get in to CPA networks, but I heard that you can get more out of doing CPA than just AdSense. You might want to take a look at Offervault.com. They're a popular CPA site and have a list of CPA networks you can join.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Hi Cecille,

Thanks for the welcome and thanks for the reply. Yes I know it is very hard to get into CPA networks but I already have accounts on CPAWay and Peerfly. According to my research, for CPA you need to get paid traffic which I cannot afford right now. So I wanted to know how to get free traffic for CPA offers and later on I think I will be promoting products from various sites and PPC earnings. I think getting started online with CPA is the best way, that's what I think. Maybe I am wrong. (Correct me plz if I am wrong)

Basically I know how to purchase a domain, propagate it to the hosting and install wordpress or vB on it. These are some things I know. But I plan to learn SEO for this process. Please let me know how can I gather free traffic sources for CPA offers. Cant afford paid traffic at the moment but will be able to when I get some money out of it.

Kind Regards

Hi Hasselstrom90,

Welcome to affilorama. CPA means Cost per Action i.e. if someone clicks on your offer and fills in their email id or their zip code or some kind of information you get paid for it.

I myself am fairly new to CPA's but am starting to get the hang of it. I don't want you to waste your time so I cannot say with good conscience that you will do well with just SEO, especially in more competitive niches. Depending on the offer, you may be able to get into local niches with your SEO. However, paid traffic is typically the best way. I use other ppc networks like msn and yahoo, (which is the same service now I think) and I have also used ppv networks where you can buy ad space. That tends to be a little less expensivebut only works if you can get on the right site that is relevant and have good visibility on the site. I suggest sticking with offer vault to find the best offers then just contact the companies who are promoting it. Hope this helps.

Hey BlueBlood90,

Actually i wanted to start diving into CPA as well after checking some of the payouts these crazy networks are paying out per lead at Offervault.com ;-)

Have you tried video?

I'm guessing if you can find an "as advertised on tv" , cross reference the product name with google trends and get a video ranked for those terms it might convert well.

Might be an experiment worth trying out :)

Cheers,
Jay

Hey BlueBlood90

I still have to research about CPA's but do you have to pay those CPA networks just to sign in or have them in your site?

Earning from being a CPA is not really a problem at all. In fact, it is one of the professions where opportunities for job offers are extensive, especially for newly graduates. Just be competitive and do your best during the interview and other recruitment processes so you can easily get hired and start earning your own income.

How To Make Money Promoting C.P.A. Offers?
0. Register cpa network http://advertgoal.com
1. Through your email list if the program allows it.
2. Through your Facebook page, or Facebook fanpage.
3. Through your website, or blog.
4. Pay per click ads sending people directly to the C.P.A. offer just make sure you have a thorough understanding of pay per click or you could lose a lot of money if you do not know what you are doing.
5. Media buying programs like adbrite for example.
6 Advertise on websites related to the c.p.a. program that you are thinking of promoting.
7. Through solo ads if the c.p.a. program allows it.
8. Through banner, or text link advertising on your blog, or website.
9. Through adswaps – You send an email to another internet marketers list in exchange he or she mails your offer out to their lists. I would recommend you getting the lead yourself first and then you can recommend your C.P.A program to them after you have captured their name, and email address.
10. Through classified ads if the program allows it.
