    I just signed up for azoogle CPA network. On their application they ask your experience with the following....


    CPM
    CPC
    CPA


    So I get that CPA is "cost-per-action" which is like email and zip submits right?

    I have no clue what they are referring to when they say CPM and CPC, what is a example? I can't exactly grasp what they would be referring to.

    Any help would be sweeeet! :D

    CPM is cost per thousand impressions
    CPC is cost per click.

    Cost per action can apply to anything really. It basically means how much you get paid when someone completes an action. An action can be anything from a small email submit like you mentioned, to a full page form for say an insurance lead, or a sale when they submit their cc details.
