How to make money with CPA offers?
Can I make money with CPA offers without any website?
etc. are some commonly and frequently asked questions by the newbies who have just entered into CPA industry. I tried my best to answer all above questions in this article. To answer the question no. 1 I must say there are numerous ways to promote CPA offers over the internet. Some of them are legal and some of them are illegal. Surely, I am not going to teach you illegal promotion methods because of two reasons; firstly I hate illegal methods and secondly, I don’t have much idea about that. Therefore, play safe and make money in a safe way. Below I have mentioned 3 different approaches. However, in this article, I will explain only Newbie Approach and will write about other approaches in upcoming articles.
Before going through this article make sure you went through my previous posts on CPA marketing which are:
3 separate approaches to promote CPA offers:
- Newbie Approach – ($0 investment): This approach costs no money but you have to work very hard and must be alert whenever taking any step. Basically, this approach includes CPA offer promotion in various popular sites where you no need to buy any domain or hosting.
- Intermediate Approach – ($100-$300 investment): This approach needs some higher skills like domain and hosting setup, site building, article writing, SEO etc. along with little investment. I promote CPA offers in this method.
- Experts Approach – ($1,000+ investment): Only Expert marketers are eligible for this approach which involves higher investment, higher risk, and higher profit. In this stage, CPA offers are promoted via paid campaigns. I occasionally do some paid campaigns but till now didn’t achieve any big success.?
Let’s get ready for your free Landing page or Blog:
As you are going to promote your CPA offers without paying for any domain-hosting or other paid tools, I recommend you to go with free web page creator tools. There are many of them but in this article, I will be using WIX to illustrate you how to create your very first Landing page.
First of all, go to WIX and sign up for a free account. After creating your account you will see a page like below, choose “Other” as your site type.
After doing so you will be asked either you want your site to be developed by WIX team (you have to pay them) or want to develop it by yourself. Choose the second one, which means click on “Choose a Template”.
You will be taken in front of hundreds of free templates they have, click on “Landing Pages” from the left tab and choose a template of your own choice.
After choosing your template, you will be taken to the web page editor of WIX where you need to give some good amount of time to learn how to edit and to create a great looking landing page.
Editing a landing page may seem a little bit tough at the first time and hence I recommend you to go through their video tutorials on their official Youtube channel. On the web page editor, the red marked area is to manage your sites, save it, see a preview and to publish it; the blue marked area is to add new elements on your landing page and finally, the green marked area is to edit the elements. You can also edit any element by double-clicking on it. Finally, after creating your landing page just hit the publish button and choose a free sub-domain and BOOM you are done.
Remember to put a relevant name of the sub-domain that matches with the offer you will be promoting before you hit the publish button and make it live for the world. I made this demo page for the first time using WIX editor which took my 10 minutes, Check the page https://msisakib.wixsite.com/demo (Remember, it’s just a demo page just to show you)
Wait Wait! If you think the second process is too hard and confusion for you then simply sign up for a blogspot site and publish a post describing the CPA offer. You can use this blogspot link anywhere without any restriction. If you are new to blogspot, then watch the video:
Hope you are pretty dedicated to doing all these stuff by yourself, however, my final suggestion will be getting started with new domain-hosting and making your landing page or blog with WordPress which will give you the ultimate power to make highest converting and best-looking landing pages or blog post.
Here go the 7 proven ways to promote CPA offers across the web
#1. Promote CPA offers via Facebook
Facebook is known as the ocean of traffic as it gets more than 1 billion unique visitors daily. Here go the effective formulas to promote CPA offers on Facebook. Remember, in case of Facebook you need to cover up your CPA offer link in the second method or you need to write a post on your blogspot blog.
Firstly, do research and select some pages that are related to your chosen CPA offer. Make a real, trustworthy comment with CTA (Call to Action) so that people will click on your provided link. To leverage the whole process you can ask your friend to give thumbs up on your comment which will make you more authentic. Watch below image as an example
You can get laser targeted traffic by doing a little bit more deep work such as sending private messages. However, you need to keep in mind that in this case, you need to be more conscious and strategic. Visit pages that are related to your CPA offer and read comments on each post and find someone who has a problem and asking for help (your CPA offer must be able to solve the problem). Remember to mention his/her name and say how you found him/her while sending a private message. You can also start a conversation with Hi, Hello, What’s up etc. and then come to your main point. Make sure you get a reply from another side which will decrease your chances to be a spammer on Facebook. Look at below image for example,
In both cases, you need to be careful and stay safe. Don’t do too many comments in short time neither send too many private messages. Keep a gap of at least 30 minutes between your comments and privates messages. It’s better not to do more than 5 comments and private messages per day.
#2. Twitter CPA offer Promotion
Twitter is not as hard as Facebook in case of links. So, you can just cover/shorten your CPA affiliate link using bit.ly and promote on Twitter. Surprisingly, shorten links get more clicks on Twitter according to several types of research. It’s better to start your Twitter marketing from hashtag research for the best result. For that, visit hashtag analyzing tool such as hashtags.org and type any keyword that’s related to your CPA offer. For example, I typed “Amazon” as there are several CPA offers related to Amazon gift cards and deals. After pressing the search button you will get recent tweets that include #amazon and other related tags. Select some tags and get ready for your main work.
Now your job is to make tweets including hashtags that you have selected. Here are some tricks to make your tweets more visible and effective:
- Tweet 8-10 times a day
- Use 2-3 hashtags in each tweet
- Try to use a related picture in the tweet
Besides tweeting you can also move to personal approach just like Facebook. For this, search on Twitter by your keyword and see if anyone is asking for help that can end up with your CPA offer/product as the solution. If you think you can provide a solution and make some bucks only then send a direct message to him/her by describing the solution.
#3. Promote via Pinterest
Pinterest marketing is easy, interesting and of fun. Most amazingly, researchers found that average sell from Pinterest traffic is higher than Facebook traffic which is a clear sign of getting higher conversion rate from your CPA offers. In this case, it will be better to write a post about your selected CPA offer and then drive traffic from Pinterest. On the other hand, you can also use shorten links. Here are the easy steps to promote CPA offers on Pinterest:
- In case you are totally new, go to Pinterest.com and sign up for an account.
- Write a good Profile name and description.
- Create a board that’s related to your CPA offer. For example, You can name your board “Clash of Clans Guru” as there are several CPA offers on COC mobile game.
- After that search on Pinterest by your keyword.
- Pin some nice images on your board and follow other boards of the same niche (Don’t follow more than 100 boards in a day).
- This is how you can grow your followers on Pinterest.
- After having some followers you can start promoting your CPA offers by uploading and pinning images along with your offer link. Make sure your images are attractive and relevant.
- In order to add a link to any pin of your board, you need to open the image and click on edit button. Then put the link below in the box and save it. Remember, you can add a link to pins that are uploaded by you. You cannot add a link to any pin that you have repined from other boards.
- Get an account on Reddit.com and engage in the subreddits (these are individual groups on any specific topic/niche under Reddit).
- Act like genuine community members and avoid all sorts of promotion at least for the first month.
- Gather link karma (by posting helpful and funny links) and comment karma (make valuable comments in other posts).
- Use Redditlist.com to track the most active and fast-growing subreddits.
- After achieving some karmas you can write a helpful post on any topic that’s related to your CPA offer (don’t forget to include the link to CPA offer or blogspot post) and publish it.
- Make your title attractive so that you can get more views and upvotes.
- Upvotes are the game changer on Reddit, so focus on getting more Upvotes from other community members. If you provide value via your post or link you will get upvotes.
- Go to keywordtool.io and search for your specific keyword under the Youtube tab.
- Select a keyword that suits best to your selected CPA offer.
- Try to keep the length of video more than 2 minutes.
- Put your keyword in the name of video file (before uploading it), in the title, in description part, and in tags while uploading the video to Youtube.

#4. Youtube CPA Marketing
Some CPA marketers are on fire just because of huge traffic from Youtube. If you are good at video making and editing then forget about all other methods and focus on making high-quality videos. I know some CPA marketers who are making $10,000+ every month only via Youtube video marketing. Don’t worry if you are a newbie and don’t know how to make videos. You can simply make a slide presentation in MS Powerpoint and record the presentation as video using any screen recorder like CamStudio, Ice-cream Screen recorder, Camtasia etc. Don’t make videos for the sake of making videos, make videos to get action from people. Below I have mentioned some tips to rank your Youtube videos so that you can get more traffic and can make more money,
#5. Promote via Reddit
If you are totally new to Reddit then it’s better to avoid this section for now. Good news is you can get thousands of traffic from Reddit within a couple of hours if your post hits the top position in it. The bad news is Reddit community hate marketers. So, if you are willing to promote your CPA affiliate links or offers on Reddit you must be very very careful and strategic. Here are some tips to start with Reddit marketing,
#6. Forum Marketing
Many people misunderstood forum marketing and end up with getting banned. Just posting the link in any forum post or reply is not called forum marketing. First, you need to know the ultimate aim of forums. Forums are created to build a community and help each other, not to promote products and services. Signature enabled forums are best to get started. I am not going to provide any list of forums because it depends on your CPA offer niche. Find out some forums that are related to your selected CPA offer. Here are the steps that will lead you to successful forum marketing:
- Sign up for a signature enabled forum and complete your profile detail.
- Make sure the forum has enough members and visitors. Simply look at the number of threads and replies.
- Add your blogspot post’s link to the “Homepage” or “Website” section of the profile.
- Write a good looking sentence and include the link in the signature section. Some forum does not allow direct affiliate link, in that case, link to your blogspot post.
- After setting up your profile and signature start engaging and helping other forum members.
- Make friends, give replies, ask questions, give thumbs up and position yourself as a dedicated contributor to the forum.
Here are a real-life example and explanation of forum marketing:
This is a forum thread in Warriorforum where I asked a question which had attracted lots of replies. If you notice carefully that in this thread I expressed my expertise about CPA marketing and right down in the signature part I invited to check out my CPA marketing related guideline. This single link gave me lots of targeted traffic from this forum.
#7. Article marketing
Article marketing is pretty much same as blog post promotion. Sign up for some good article submission sites and start submitting helpful articles. Write articles that are somehow relevant to your chosen CPA offer. For example, You can write an article on Clash of Clans mobile game and promote CPA offers that are related to Clash of Clans game. Make sure your article title is enough attractive to grab people’s attention. Besides, add a strong call to action sentence or button to get the best out of it. In case of above example, you can use “Grab Free COC Gems”, “Participate in COC Gems Giveaway” etc. as CTA so that people will take action and you can make handsome amount of bucks every month. Here are some tips for article marketing:
- Don’t over promote your CPA offer in the articles.
- Make sure to add value to your content so that it will be approved for publishing.
- Use attractive title to get maximum attention and conversion. Check out these 181 amazing headline ideas.
- Use CPA affiliate link twice in the article.
