CPA stands for “cost per acquisition” or simply “cost per action” and CPA offers are the offers wherein a user has to fill in forms or download programs from a promoter. These forms to be accomplished could be as short as two text fields for your name and email address, such as those used for newsletter subscriptions, and as long as multiple text fields requiring more personal, residential, and financial information such as the types used for life insurance offers. The examples of programs that can be downloaded thru CPA offers are screensavers, wallpapers, toolbars, emoticons and smileys.
Typically, a single email submit is worth an amount from $0.25 – $4.00 and the longer forms are generally worth up to as high as $140. The important thing you must keep in mind when trying to learn CPA marketing is that money comes whenever a user downloads a program of accomplishes and submits a form. Thus, you must focus on getting more users to subscribe to or download your offers. What makes it very appealing is that typically, the users need not pay for anything. In fact, only the users’ personal information is needed most of the time. Once the form is submitted or a program downloaded, you earn a commission.
Meanwhile, CPA networks that the companies that function as intermediaries between the CPA promoter and the publishers. They host CPA offers from the promoters, have their publishers generate traffic towards these offers and then obtain a percentage of the lead’s worth. The publishers are also called affiliates. Take this example: a promoter pays the CPA network five dollars per generated lead and the CPA network pays the affiliate only four dollars per generated lead, with one dollar taken as a commission cut. This is the way profit is made in CPA marketing.
After you have logged in to a CPA network, you get the ability to look through the CPA offers available and choose which ones you want to advertise. For every individual CPA offer, you will be given a unique affiliate ID for advertising that said offer. It is the CPA network that will track all your generated leads and revenues on your behalf.
What is good about having such a network is that you will only receive a single check for all the commissions you have earned for all the offers you have promoted rather than multiple checks from many different promoters.
So there you have it! The aforementioned points are just the basics though. Anyone who wants to learn CPA marketing to earn big money still have a lot more to study, understand and become familiar with. You will find many useful resources online that will help you gain a more in-depth knowledge on CPA marketing.
