Affiliate networks are a must in one’s arsenal if they’re going to monetize their web presence. As you know there are multiple affiliate networks to choose from like anything else and can be quite overwhelming to even the most savvy business person. There are so many affiliate networks out there that we can have a conversation that spans thousands of words. Lucky for you, we’re only going to discuss one – CPA affiliate networks. Before we do that we must first define it. What is a CPA affiliate network?
First of all what does CPA mean?
CPA stands for – Cost Per Action.
What is considered an action?
An action can consist of:
- Filling out an online form with all of your details – name, phone number, email address, your place of residence.
- Entering in your email address only.
- Answering questions pertaining to a specific topic.
- Taking part in surveys.
Each of the above is an example of an action.
What is an affiliate network?
Think of an affiliate network as a giant warehouse store that contains hundreds if not thousands of different offers you can choose to promote on your website.
So, a CPA affiliate network is a giant warehouse store that contains a ton of Cost Per Action offers you can promote on your site. And when a visitor takes part in that Action, you’ll get paid – a.k.a receive a commission.
How much commission can you expect?
It will depend on what you’re having someone sign up for. If it’s just to fill out a quick and easy survey or have them just enter their email address, typical commission for that action is around $1.
A good offer is usually around $3 to $5 in my experience. Now I am not claiming to be the end all, be all of CPA affiliate networks so your experiences may be different.
Now, I know of a CPA offer that pays $40 for performing an action. This offer is in Mortgage Industry, specifically dealing with FHA Refinancing.
Here is the landing page of what that looks like. If you happen to be in the market for an FHA refinance and fill out that form I would receive $40 as I am an affiliate for that CPA offer.
As a side note there is no cost to join an affiliate network, but you have to be accepted into them. Some are more difficult than others to join. Also, you’ll need special permission to promote high paying offers.
Examples of CPA Affiliate Networks
The aforementioned offer is from PeerFly. Peefly is somewhat selective in whom they let in, and promote their offers, but not as stringent as MaxBounty which we’ll get to in a minute.
CPA Lead is another affiliate network that you can utilize. I have not used CPA Lead personally, but have not heard any complaints about it either.
MaxBounty is a well-known CPA affiliate network who is selective in who they allow in. They really want to make sure it is the right for fit for both parties.
There it is. Soup to nuts of what is a cpa affiliate network.
