    Do both. CPA can be bigger money now, but affiliate marketing can be set up for long term. Then, you can be on the beach, far from a phone, and still make money.

    CPA marketing IS affiliate marketing but I assume you're asking if it's easier to make money with "get paid per sign up" or "get paid per sale". Personally, I recommend pay per sale for newbies and start with CPA once you can afford paid traffic.

    The reason I recommend that is because it's difficult and generally a bad idea to build a SEO campaign around a particular CPA offer (they expire frequently).

    Yes you are right I also heard that they expire frequently.
    Are all CPA offers temporarily ?

    Yep, they're all temporary at any given affiliate network. However you can frequently find popular offers at different networks. Say you are promoting Maybelline samples at network A, and then the offer closes at that network; you can probably find the same or similar offer at network B, so you just shift all your traffic over there.

    Managing offers can be a real nightmare sometimes if you have traffic in a lot of different niches and you're geotargeting your traffic as well.
