    i'm talking about the big 1m+ pages (comedy niche) most of them could bank alot if they did CPA right? but i've been checking and they never have any links on thier bio ...what could be the reason?

    They don't want to risk their pages, or they don't know what CPA is, either way, CPA is pretty shady anyways, I know if I had a 1m+ page, I wouldn't monetize it using CPA, but thats just me.

    Because their big sites would become little sites that no one wants to visit.

    Not sure what kind of CPA you could do within Comedy Niche? Not a lot of money in that market I would assume...

    It's just safer to sell shoutouts and captions and stuff like that...
    Captions are the least annoying for followers.

    PA s associated with shady sites because of all the lame cookie cutter amateurs trying to make a quick dollar online. Too easy to scam with, and its also frightening to most users to give your information to some company that only exists online. I'd rather pump my visitors to YouTube or my own services with a donation link or something (explain to them about getting tipped money by using YouTube). You may not think its scumbag now, but imagine being hit with 300,000 of the same profile butt staring you in the face, promising that if you sign up for a free trial of penis pills, you get to hit that. I chuckle each time someone goes this route, as only fools that are uneducated with no brains at all will fall for this scam.

    Don't function on a scum level, go higher than that. Brand your accounts, get long term money in a evergreen niche, keep evolving and growing, get people to like you enough to trust you with their money, etc.

    They do do CPA, I know someone with 1 million+ followers on IG and she made $3k in a day with CPA. They just do it so you don't see it so basically like this:

    Create CPA account -> Shout out CPA account with big account -> CPA account has the URL in their bio -> $$$

    That way you don't risk you main account, and you still make money off CPA.

    THIS

    OR

    They legitimately run the page because it's their passion and have no interest in making money.

    Of course not all accounts are like this but there are a few that do.
