    Well I'm finally doing it. I've decided to move into CPA after getting to a comfort zone with my IM, I've never used CPA but I have a plan that I believe will work great, just need to get a few questions answered:

    1. I'm not 100% sure how CPA's work, so i have some basic questions about the CPA itself, which one of these are true:

    A. You sign up to a CPA network, they provide you a list of CPA's to put on YOUR OWN website and you tell it where to redirect the visiter once the offer is complete

    B. You sign up to a CPA network, they provide you a link to a CPA designed for you (affiliate link?) on its own webpage, you select the CPA you want to use (phone, email, name + address, etc) and the page it leads to

    I'm hoping the answer is A, but i doubt it as that seems odd.

    and question 2:

    I currently do NOT have a website of my own, but am more than willing to set one up if i have to. My plan is to have people fill out a CPA in order to access what they are there for (Ebook, mp3, video, software download, etc)

    Will I have to host it (the file/info) wherever i want to host it on my own, or can i tell the CPA to redirect to a page (not owned by me) that has the said content?

    sweet, so CPA networks just provide a list of prebuilt pages with the CPA on it and i just choose which one to promote?

    thats fucking awesome >.<

    any recommendations of CPA networks to use? (I've noticeda lot ask you for your website address etc, and since i dont have a website that causes some problems...)

    Mediatrust, CXDigital and Hydra are decent. You got smaller ones like YepRevenue that payout weekly as well.

    thanks :D

    i just signed up to them, anyone know how long it normally takes them to review/accept you?

    Also, for the ones that have a manditory space to type a website, anyone have any tips to getting signed up without having your own site?

    Call them so that you can talk to an account manager and they'll make your approval process faster.

    As for the mandatory website part, just put something like google.com if you're promoting Adwords. I would then usually explain that I do Adwords advertising or whatever if I put something like that so that they know. They might want an example landing page though, so grab something and host it up to show.

    You can always tell them that you don't want to share your LPs and ask if there is any way around that. If you know what you're talking about, you'll get in regardless of whether you show them an LP or not.

    If you'd like, I'll put in a good word for you with MediaTrust. Just PM me the email address you used to sign up and reach out for you. :)

    I recommend Pofecker's own CPA network, StrongerAds. Made a solid $80 off them yesterday with like 10 minutes of playing around lol.

    If you want email submit go for Hydra.

    Yea so StrongerAds all the way.

    I personally like peerfly the most and recently they have 200+ offers. Also I experienced very little shaving compared to other networks:)

    CPA is exactly the same as all other affiliate marketing out there. In fact the most successful CPA offers (network wide) are physical products where people have to get out their credit card. A CPA network just connects you to the advertiser. It's up to you to choose direct linking or build bridge landing pages.

    A lot of people jumped on the CPA bandwagon because they used to pay a lot of money just to get people to fill in a zip submit. Not so anymore. It's pretty much the same as normal affiliate marketing.

    When you apply for any CPA network the number 1 rule is CALL THEM ON THE PHONE about 2 days after you send the application in. You'll need a website - just throw up a wordpress site on your own hosting. Explain that you only do ppc marketing with direct linking.

    Whatever you do - DON'T tell them you plan on making people sign up to offers to access your content. They hate this - it's an incentive site. Yes there are incentive offers you can use this for later on (but they pay next to nothing). But when you sign up NEVER say you plan on incentivizing offers. That equals fraud in their eyes - don't ask me why.

    I like neverblue and maxbounty.

    thanks for the tips. I've applied to just about every CPA network listed here, only gotten accepted by one (strongerads) and still waiting to hear back from the rest. Not really liking strongerads cause i was after mostly email/zip/phone submits, but most of them are wanting them to fill out a full form and give CC D:

    anyways, if anyone could recommend a few more then thad be great

    also thanks for the tip about saying im doing PPC, ill keep that in mind when i start making calls to 'em.
