Cpa Affiliate Marketing Programs - Forget The Myths
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you looking for CPA affiliate marketing programs that will work for you? Many people within online marketing will tell you that CPA offers are a scam and you should stay away from them. Truth is that these are probably the people that have never really tried these kinds of programs before. That being said, before you decide to get into CPA you should know the basics and understand what it’s all about. In this article I am going to provide you with exactly what CPA is, why you should not overlook it as well as some of the programs that are out there for you.

Let’s get started...

So what is CPA, PPL or PPC?

CPA stands for Cost Per Action/Acquisition, otherwise also known as pay per lead or pay-per-click. Essentially what this means is that you promote a product or service and receive a commission for a specific action your referral performs. These “actions” can range anywhere from filling out a registration form, subscribing to an e-mail list or simply clicking on a specific ad. The criteria will depend upon the program or company you sign up with and what their terms exactly are.

But I’ve heard that CPA programs are scams, is this true?

Absolutely not. Many online marketers make a decent income from solely promoting CPA offers on their websites or blogs. It seems that CPA has received this stigma, because affiliate marketing (where you promote a product and receive a commission upon the sale of the item, otherwise known as PPS - Pay Per Sale) is the popular and “more lucrative” kid in town. Sure affiliate marketing commissions may be higher at times, but this should not be a reason to completely bypass cost per action offers. When you are just starting out, you need to just test and see what will work best for YOU and try and focus on that.

So what are some programs that provide CPA offers?

Here is a list of the top 5 CPA networks that I recommend:

  1. Google AdSense
  2. Neverblue
  3. ShareASale
  4. Commission Junction (CJ)
  5. Max Bounty

As you can see there are a number of reasons why CPA affiliate marketing programs can work for you. You just really need to be willing to get your toes wet and go for it. Without taking action you will have no results. If you are ever unsure of whether the CPA network you are considering is reputable then just do a quick Google search for reviews. I can guarantee you if someone has had issues with them, they will more than likely want to talk about it.
