    I have reading through the forum (CPA specifically) and realize that utilizing the CPA market is very cost effective. Does the majority agree that it is without doubt the most profitable way to earn leads and create a profit?

    I currently have an informational survey research site without a squeeze/landing page that gets a few thousand hits per month in traffic. I would submit this as my main site when applying to the various networks.


    With the CPA networks, I'm basically going to create a squeeze page in which the leads go to the CPA, correct? Then the CPA pays me per lead? (Any details would be helpful)

    Also, how common is it for people to send out the CPA product to large lists (spam it)? Are there strict regulations against it, or certain networks that specifically ban it?

    Thanks for the insight...

    You certainly can create your own squeeze page to build a list and drive traffic to various CPA offers, but you will only be paid for leads that go through the advertiser's offer page. If, for example, you're promoting an email submit offer, you would only get credit for leads that converted from the advertiser's squeeze page, not your own (unless you've created your own sneaky squeeze page that iframes the advertiser's email submit box, but leads obtained in this manner are unlikely to convert, and you run the risk of your account getting banned if certain precautions are not taken).

    As for sending people to CPA offers via email, some networks allow this and even encourage it. However, you usually have to accept additional terms and conditions and must make sure that you're not sending emails to people who are on a do-not-contact list (provided by the CPA network).

    With the email lists I currently have, all of the leads have opted in over the past couple of years, and I make sure to remove anyone who insists. Do you know which networks specifically encourage traffic via email, or no?

    Have you found that most of the CPA companies provide you the squeeze page?

    I've started to apply to a few of the networks, so we'll see where it goes from here...

    Here are a few networks to get you started:

    Code:
    http://www.addrive.com/
    http://www.dtmpartners.com/
    http://www.neverblue.com/
    
    With AdDriv3, they ask you in the application to choose whether you will be creating an "Email Account" or a "Banner Account". DTMPartn3rs allows email marketing and banners but disallows PPC and SEO. N3v3rBlu3 allows email for some offers, but you may have to get approved for specific offers, even if you've already been approved to the network in general.

    If the type of offer is an "email submit", then yes, the advertiser provides the squeeze page. However, this page is for collecting their own leads, not yours. They do not give you a squeeze page to build your own list. Since you already have lists, then you can email your subscribers a link to the offer.

    You need not promote only email submit offers via email marketing. You can use email to promote any offer for which email marketing is an approved traffic method. The CPA network will tell you which lead generation methods are approved for each offer, how much you'll get paid, and when the conversion happens (first page, second page, credit card submit, etc.)
