    Hey All,

    I'm a CL marketer, now just marketing a service. However, I want to diversify and I am interested in CPA.

    But I don't quite 'get it'.

    I know there is a definition in the description of the forum, but it seems that there are many facets of this i.e. free offers, selling stuff, etc.

    Can someone give me a quick noob rundown?

    Thanks!!

    JR

    CPA = Cost Per Action. Basically you have an offer that requires an action. Someone has to do something after clicking on your advert, be it enter their telephone number, email address, ZIP code, etc. And you get paid per action completed.

    So you just craft crafty (no alliteration intended) to get people to post, and voila?

    Is that why you need to cloak everything?

    Are programs such as GODcpa good tool for a scriptkiddie like me?
