Before moving further lets have a look on some very important aspects of CPA marketing for those who are new to Internet Marketing field.
What is CPA & Why CPA?
CPA (Cost Per Action) is one of the forms of Affiliate Marketing. CPA marketing differs from Affiliate Marketing in certain areas. While Affiliate marketing is mainly associated with “Sales” (which means you get paid your commissions by the affiliate network only when a customer or a visitor buys any product you are promoting from your affiliate link).
On the other hand CPA marketing is also associated with “Sales”, but not all CPA offers require “sales” to get you paid your commissions. It requires Visitors to take actions for getting you paid. What kind of actions? For example:
- Free Trial Offers (You get paid when a customer just takes a Free Trial of an offer before buying).
- Email/Zip Submit Offers (You get paid when a customer just enters his/her Email/Zip before buying a product).
- Survey Offers (You get paid when a customer takes a survey and provide his/her information by filling out a simple form which is provided by the promoting company).
- There are also other offers / products that requires sales to get you paid like affiliate marketing.
NOTE: There are many other offers in CPA marketing you will get to know about once you join a CPA network.
With the first three offers above you won‟t have to worry whether the customer buys the product or not. Your job is to convince the customer to provide his information (the information may be his/her Email or Zip code or some other information like his/her name, Address, Phone Number etc. as the offer demands). That‟s It. That‟s why CPA offers are considered to be much easier to convert as compared to Affiliate Offers.
Next Step is to join a good CPA Network / Networks. There are tons of CPA Networks you may find… Some of top CPA Networks are…
- CPA Lead and so on…
My suggestion is to go to Google and search for “Top CPA Networks”. You will get a huge list of Good CPA Networks to select from.
Next Step is to Apply with a good CPA network and getting approved by the Network. I‟m not going to discuss here on how to apply and get approved by CPA networks as the guide will get longer. I suggest you to go to Google or Youtube and search for “How to get approved by CPA Networks”. You will get loads of extremely helpful guidelines on this topic. If you follow the steps, I don‟t think it‟s going be a problem at all for you to get accepted by a CPA network. To be very honest I myself got approved by CPA Networks by following these guidelines.
Okay…! No more lengthening the guide. Let’s straight jump into this Secret Strategy and Get Started…
What is “This Secret Strategy” All About?
This guide is going to reveal how you can share other people‟s content / site / blog / and still easily bring the traffic back to your own content or offer. With this strategy you can promote someone else’s site / blog / content while driving targeted free traffic back to your own site / blog / content or offer.
Doesn’t it sound Interesting? Let‟s reveal the secret. We are going to take advantage of a site “http://snip.ly”. snip.ly allows you to drive traffic back to your own site or offer while you share contents from all across the internet.
With “snip.ly” you can design and add your own call-to-action with every page you share on social media. THE MAGIC IS HERE…! It doesn’t have to be your own site. You can share great contents of others, but still get click-through back to your own site / blog / content / CPA offer or Affiliate offer. How Awesome Is This?
NOTE: Since we are going to promote CPA offer, so in this guide we will be driving traffic to our CPA offer.
Let’s go through each and every step of the guide in detail Step-By-Step…
STEP 1: OPENING A FREE ACCOUNT WITH “snip.ly”
Though snip.ly also offers some paid services with monthly subscription, but since I told you that we are going to leverage the free targeted traffic, we will go with the Free Account.
- Go to “http://snip.ly”
- Click on “Try sniply for FREE”
It will take you to a simple sign up form.
- Enter Your Name, Email ID and Password. That‟s all, your free sniply Account is created and you will be taken straight to your Dashboard.
STEP 2: FINDING A GREAT AND HOT CONTENT / TOPIC
It‟s time to find a great topic/content on the web from which we are going to drive traffic to our offer. In order to get a fresh, hot and up-to-date content you can take advantage of Google Alert. Also you can search on Google for any Niche of your choice and can easily find your favorite content.
For the purpose of this guide I will use CNN.com for finding a great hot content or topic. It‟s needless to say that for the most up-to-date, latest and hot breaking news / topic there can not be a better authority site than CNN. You can also find your topic on Yahoo, MSN, Google Trends, Google alert or you can Google search for your favorite topic as I said earlier.
Another reason why I‟ve chosen CNN is, as you can see below that Global Alexa ranking of CNN is 88 (USA 24). From this you can easily imagine how many (Billions) people visit CNN everyday. (You can choose your content from anywhere all over the web).
Moving on to our strategy…
- OK, let’s go to “http://cnn.com”
My favorite topic is “Movies”. And also we‟re going to promote a CPA offer which is related to Movies. So we’ll search for “Movies” in the search bar of CNN straight way and landed up with a nice list of hot and latest breaking news on movies. From this list we‟ll click on a great content. (It’s entirely up to you which topic you will choose)… Let’s see…
Now we’ve got our content. We‟re going to click on it. A latest breaking-news (content) comes up.
Now comes in the tricky part. All we need to do is, just COPY the URL of the content page and PASTE it on the notepad for future use.
STEP 3: FINDING A GOOD CPA OFFER RELATED TO OUR CONTENT
For finding a good CPA offer you can use “http://offervault.com” or “http://odigger.com”.
If you are already with a CPA network, try to find a good offer within the network related to your topic.
Note: Regarding joining a CPA network, I’ve already discussed about this at the beginning of the guide.
For the purpose of this guide we’ve chosen a very good CPA offer which is pretty much related to our topic. It’s a Free Movie Pass Offer. The Visitors get a Free Trial of Movie Pass to watch Unlimited Movies at their nearest theaters for 2 weeks. After completion of the trial period if the customer/visitor likes the offer then they can continue with the offer for a monthly subscription of $30 only.
But my job is to convince the visitor to take the Trial Offer only. If the visitor takes the 2 weeks Trial Offer, I get paid $16. Not Bad at all. It’s a lucrative offer. Right…!
So we‟ve got a very good offer to promote which is related to my topic. Now I‟ll get my affiliate link. I‟ll COPY the affiliate link and paste it on the notepad for future use.
Note: Those who are new to CPA, you will get to know how to get your affiliate link in my VIDEO GUIDE below.
Important Note: Before promoting CPA offers please take care of all the restrictions regarding promotional methods, age, country etc. prescribed by the respective networks.
Note: (Affiliate Networks are Lenient in this regard though. This Strategy goes well with Affiliate Offers too).
STEP 4: TRACKING YOUR AFFILIATE LINK
In order to track your Affiliate Link (which in my opinion is extremely important in Internet Marketing) you can use any service provider for tracking purpose. I’m using “http://bitly.com” free tracking service here to track my affiliate link.
- Let’s go to “http://bitly.com” and sign up for a free account.
After signing up just paste your affiliate link (which we’ve already got in step 3) in the “paste a long URL here to shorten…” box and immediately you will get your shortened tracking link. Copy that link and paste it on notepad for further use.
STEP 5: CREATING OUR CUSTOM CALL-TO-ACTION LINK USING “snip.ly”
Now it‟s time to create our custom call-to-action promotional link using snip.ly
- Let’s go to snip.ly Dashboard.
- I’ll copy the URL of the CNN content page which we have already stored in the notepad (step 2) and paste it in the “Enter URL” box and next I’ll click on “Create Snip” button.
After hitting the button we will get a screen as follows:
1) In “Button URL Box” (Box-1) I’ll paste my tracking link. (Copying it from the notepad which we’ve done in step 4).
2) In “Message Box” (Box-2) let’s enter my Custom Message. (Self explanatory).
3) In “Button Text Box” (Box-3) I’ll enter my call-toaction button text. (Self explanatory).
NOTE: In the Button URL box (Box-1), you may put the URL of the page you want the Traffic to drive in. It may be your Offer Link, It may be your web site / blog link. It may be your Youtube url OR it may be your Squeeze page url.
As we fill out all the boxes, we can see below the screen that our Snip is being created. After you get satisfied with your call-to-action Message and Button text, Hit the “CREATE” button... DONE... You will be taken to the following screen…
We are almost done… All you need to do is just copy the link from the box and save it on the notepad because this is the link which we‟re going to share everywhere (Social Media).
LET’S TAKE A TEST ON HOW THE LINK WORKS:
- Let’s copy the link and paste it on our browser…
- Now Hit “Enter” and see what happens…
BOOM..! We’ve landed straight on the CNN content page, but along with our Custom Call-To-Action Snip at the bottom of the screen.
Can you see the power of the Strategy Friends?
NOW THE FINAL STEP:
Create an Attractive post followed by “snip.ly” generated link and share it on Social Media. E.g. if you create a post like…
“The much-anticipated Full Length movie on Legendary Former CEO of Apple, Late Steve Jobes is going to hit the theaters in October. But a Full Length Trailer has been released. Watch the Trailer with Full CNN Review on the Film….. Your snip.ly Link”.
And share the post on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Google Plus, Tumblr, Linkedin, Instagram (only picture / Link on profile), Pinterest etc etc… as many as you can. Or you can share your snip.ly link through Email Marketing.
Can you imagine how many visitors will be eager to see this Trailer / Review and whoever visits the CNN page from your shared link to see the trailer will see your Offer- Snip pops-up from the bottom.
Just go with this strategy and implement it correctly. If you can choose a very nice latest topic and at the same time if your offer is a lucrative one, you can undoubtedly expect a large number of visitors coming to your offer.
Well, this is it from me now… I do hope that you have found this guide useful, and that you will go ahead and implement the strategy and give it a chance to see for yourself.
That was all about “This Secret Guide”. A 100% legit and secret strategy to make Affiliate / CPA commissions. I hope you will take action and implement the strategy in a correct way. If you have any questions, please let me know. I will be more than happy to hear from you.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not promote the same content and the same offer as shown in the guide. I’ve chosen the content and the offer for example purpose. There are tons of other offers and contents to promote. Please go with them as per your choice. And do take care of all promotional restrictions laid down the respective CPA networks.
Some Restrictions with Sniply: Sniply uses iframe technology to load web pages. Websites with high security settings sometimes block iframes for security purposes. But 99% sites are supported by Sniply. With Free Sniply account you will get 1000 clicks per month. But if you open more than one account you can get higher number of clicks. And there are always options open for you to upgrade your account to overcome this restriction & to get much better results.
