There are many successful online marketers who run campaigns from several different CPA networks, but if you’re just starting out, it’s a good idea to stick to one or two until you get comfortable with business and get a few successful campaigns running “under one roof” first.
You also don’t want to be overwhelmed with having to manage and track results inside several CPA networks when you first start out because you need to focus as much attention as possible on making money from your promotions.
So, how do you choose which CPA networks to join?
Testimonials And Word Of Mouth
Many things have changed in the world since the Internet boom, but good ol’ word of mouth still holds a lot of weight when spreading recommendations to your peers. The first thing you should do is ask around. Use Twitter, or email a couple CPA affiliates that you might know (maybe they have blogs, products, etc.).
There is never a 100% guarantee, but a few positive testimonials will definitely be a good sign.
Fresh Offers And Promo Tools
You’re going to be putting a lot of time and effort into promoting CPA offers. Top notch, cutting edge designs and other promotional material to help you out will increase your chances of making consistent profit. Many CPA networks are in charge of designing the promotional material for the advertisers, so be sure to compare the quality.
Also, a big part of CPA marketing is staying on top of the latest, hottest deals in your target market. A regular rotation of fresh offers is a definite plus when choosing which CPA networks to use.
A reputable CPA network will have a regular payout schedule and will be on time, every time without excuses. Any sign of trouble getting paid from your account is a red flag and should be questioned. Also, you may want to check to be sure that the method of payment suits your needs.
