If you are an internet marketer, you may have noticed CPA marketing gaining speed. You’re about to learn all about getting approved by CPA networks, because it’s often not that easy.
What’s that one factor that can make or break your approval process with a CPA network? It’s your website. If you don’t own a website, it’s going to very hard to get approved because the network is only interested in affiliates who own websites tailored for a certain niche. This is also the primary reason why many newbie affiliates don’t get accepted. There are many ways to get a professional looking website or blog, and it’s best to start right now if you’re serious about getting approved. You will have to spend a little bit of money registering the domain as well as hosting it. A good tip is to take a website and sync it up with any campaigns you have currently running. For example, everyone’s aware of the fact that networks have a site about dating where you can get dating offers. You can simply create a good website/blog and post content about dating. Once you’re ready and the website looks good enough, then you can go through with your application to the networks of your choice. The CPA manager is surely going to ask you what CPA offers you plan to run and you need to answer anything that converts. After you’re approved, you’re free to pick your choice of subject, you’re not stuck with dating. You only created a website that revolved around a certain niche to get approved. Once you’re approved, you can offer anything you want.
Many CPA marketers commit the blunder of going through the application process using personal email addresses from Yahoo!, Hotmail or Gmail. These email addresses are absolutely free and the individuals behind them can remain in the shadows, and so networks are less likely to trust them. Now, when you don’t have anything to hide, why not just list out an email address at your own domain name? You’ll appear much more professional and they’ll know that it’s actually you using the email address.
Go over the application carefully to make sure you filled everything out and that all the information is correct. This can send a red flag to an affiliate manager that you don’t take things seriously or that you pass up other things in your business. If you don’t have anything to put in a particular section, just put N/A, which means not applicable. Just make sure you fill everything out and that it’s all correct and you’ll be approved before you know it.
You should know that CPA marketing can be very lucrative, but first you must finish the task of getting a CPA network to accept you.
