Affiliate Marketing: Is CPA Profitable?

By Edited Sep 29, 2016 0 0

The truth is that there are different marketing attitudes and traffic generation methods used over the internet and some are more suitable for one person than another. CPA affiliate marketing might be a fast-paced business model online provided that enough traffic is generated to land on the pages.


What is CPA Marketing

It is a method of generating leads, sales or signups without having to complete the transaction. In most cases, the marketer only needs to make the visitor land on the page and take advantage of the free offer or sign up with their email address for a chance to win. In some other cases, there is a free trial offer involved, but these offers are all in accordance with the FTC rules, so one cannot go wrong. Sales obviously pay more, but even free trials can cash in about 50 dollars a time.


Lead Generation

Generating leads for other people might seem like a good idea at first, but the truth is that an online marketer would need to focus on building their own list. Therefore, it is recommended that they would focus on creating their own mailing list and place the CPA link into one of the autoresponder messages. This way they do not lose a lot of traffic and make the most out of the visitors. Those who do not sign up for the vendor’s offer might still be placed on the affiliate’s own list and take advantage of other offers.


Profitability Issues

CPA affiliate marketing campaigns can be seasonal and short-lived. That said; there is a need for checking the links and whether or not the network is still running the offer, otherwise you will be wasting your efforts. Simple email submit offers only pay around one dollar fifty on the average, so to make a living one needs to generate a lot of leads and traffic. The higher the involvement level associated with the campaign is the harder it will be to convert traffic into cash.


Final Judgment

There is obviously a lot of difference between CPA and traditional referral marketing. Depending on the quality of traffic, the methods used to get people to visit the site both can be profitable. But you have to remember that money is where traffic is. You can make huge commissions if you have enough visitors to get conversions. It is that simple.
