How to promote CPA offers?
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 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 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 gone 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 – ($50-$100 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 – ($500+ 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 🙁 .
Cover up CPA affiliate offer URL/LINK:
As you are going to play the game without owing any custom website or blog, you need to cover up your CPA offer URLs because some sites (i.e. Facebook) do not allow to post direct CPA offer URL. In simple way you can use bit.ly to make your affiliate URL looks small and trustable. However, it will also not work in some cases. Therefore visit boxhost.me and register for a free hosting plan with its subdomain. Your domain will look like yourname.boxhost.me. After setting up your account you need log in and switch to cPanel section.
From cPanel interface you need to click on “File Manager” icon and install the manager by selecting your language. I prefer English as the language of file manager.
Below image is showing the view of file manager. You may find a default.php in this section. Delete that as well as create a new file and name it index.html. Then select the file and click on edit button.
Copy and Paste below code in the file and make necessary changes such as Title, Description, Meta and Link. Replace PUT LINK HERE text with you CPA offer link and write an attractive title. It’s better to write a nice description about your offer to get more visitors.
<title>PUT YOUR TITLE OF THE PAGE HERE</title>
<meta name=”description” content=”YOUR OFFER DESCRIPTION”>
<meta name=”keywords” content=”YOUR KEYWORDS”>
<body style=”margin:0px; “scroll=”no”>
<iframe src=”PUT LINK HERE” style=”border:0px;width:100%;height:100%;”>
Finally save the file and you are done with covering up your CPA offer URL. Big Congrats!
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 about the CPA offer. You can use this blogspot link anywhere without any restriction. If you are new about blogspot, then watch below video:
Here goes 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 goes the effective formulas to promote CPA offers in 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 in your blogspot blog.
Firstly, do research and select some pages that are related to your chosen CPA offer. Make a real, trust worthy 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 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 private message. You can also start conversation with Hi, Hello, What’s up etc. and then come to your main point. Make sure you get replay from other side which will decrease your chances to be a spammer on Facebook. Look at below image as example,
In both cases you need to be careful and stay safe. Don’t do too much 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 researches. 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 in twitter by you 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 solution and make some bucks only then send direct message to him/her by describing about 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 in 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 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 you images are attractive and relevant.
- In order to add link in 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 link to pins that are uploaded by you. You cannot add link to any pin that you have repined from other boards.
- Add as much images/pins as you can in your board. Find out the popular pins of other boards by looking at the number of Pin it and Like.
#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 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,
- 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 title, in description part and in tags while uploading the video on Youtube.
- In order to accelerate the ranking share your video in all social medias as much as you can.
- You can also build some backlinks for your video to get the best result. Click here to see 17 effective link building methods.
#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. Bad news is Reddit community hate marketers. So, if you are willing to promote your CPA affiliate links or offers in Reddit you must be very very careful and strategic. Here are some tips to start with Reddit marketing,
- Get an account on Reddit.com and engage in the subreddits (these are individual groups on any specific topic/niche under Reddit).
- Act like a genuine community members and avoid all sorts of promotion at least for 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 helpful post on any topic that’s related to your CPA offer (don’t forget to include the link of 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 in Reddit, so focus on getting more Upvotes from other community members. If you provide value via your post or link you will get upvotes.
#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 you 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 in the “Home page” or “Website” section of profile.
- Write a good looking sentence and include the link in signature section. Some forum do 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 of the forum.
Here is 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. Fox 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 in 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.
