The term CPA stands for Cost Per Action. It’s also called Pay Per Lead, in short PPL. CPA marketing is quite easier than selling products. The main idea behind CPA affiliate marketing is getting particular action from your traffic. This action can be submitting Emails, filling up a form, making downloads, submitting a pin code, submitting a mobile number, and even getting a sale.

People are more likely to get free products rather than spending their earned money. Thus driving your traffic to a particular task can lead you to money. Generally, you can make $0.50 – $20 per CPA offer. However, there are also some high-end CPA offers that pay $750 or even more for a particular action by your traffic. Isn’t it sounds amazing? Yah! That’s why I came with this CPA marketing for beginners guide for you.


There are some well-known CPA networks that control the whole process. The vendors or CPA offer creators submit their particular job or product to CPA networks and those CPA networks promote those offers via CPA marketers like us.

They give us a fixed amount of money for every particular offer depending on how much the vendor or CPA offer creator has invested. Your work is very simple; firstly you have to apply to a CPA network and after getting approved, browse the existing offers and select the offer that suits your interest. After determining the offer just promote it as much as you can to the targeted online visitors.


I have already mentioned that CPA marketing is much easier than Affiliate marketing. In the case of affiliate marketing, you must make sales to get a profit. On the other hand, getting sales in CPA marketing is not mandatory to make a profit.

You can distribute free offers, trial products, apps, etc. that people can grab for free and you can make a profit for their particular actions like confirming offers, making orders for a free trial product, or even downloading a particular app or software. Thus making money with CPA became very easy compared to Affiliate marketing. There are a ton of CPA-driven sites on the web.


So, till now you got to know about CPA marketing and about its working method. Now, let me introduce you to some best CPA networks via which you can start your CPA marketing and earn a handsome amount of money. Here goes the list of the top 10 CPA networks in the world:

  • MaxBounty (recommended for Experts)
  • Peerfly (recommended for Experts)
  • Adworkmedia (recommended for All)
  • CPALead (recommended for beginners)
  • Adscendmedia
  • (recommended for beginners)
  • Clickbooth
  • CPAWay
  • Clickdealer
  • CPAGrip (recommended for beginners)
  • CPATrend


1. Advertiser and Publisher:

Advertisers are the people who pay CPA networks to get conversion of their offers. On the other hand, Publishers are the people like you and me who are promoting the offers of the CPA network to make money.

2. EPC:

The full form of EPC is Earning Per Click. It does not mean that you will get money to bring only clicks to your offers. It means, on average publishers earned the given EPC rate from every click. For example: If a CPA offer of $2.50 got 500 clicks from 20 different publishers and among them 70 clicks converted into leads. So, it’s EPC will be ($2.5*70)/500 = $0.35.

3. Payout/CPA rate:

This is the money rate which you will be paid for getting every single lead/action for that particular CPA offer. So, have a look at the Payout/CPA rate before selecting your offer.

4. Conversion (in %):

This is an important indication of which offer to choose from before you start your promotional activities. CPA offers with a high conversion rate are always preferable. For example: Think about the previous example where the offer got 500 clicks and 70 leads/actions. Here is the conversion rate of that offer (70/500)*100% = 14%.

5. County code:

Almost 95% of CPA offers are county targeted. Therefore, you must be careful about choosing the offer. If you promote the US offers to the people of Australia you will not get any payment. Some CPA networks categorized their offers based on county and some mention the county code (US, UK, AU, BR, etc) along with the offers.

6. Incentive and non-Incentive:

Here is another important and most probably less known term of CPA network. If you search the meaning of the “incentive” word, Google will reply with “a payment or concession to stimulate greater output or investment”. In short “incentive” refers to digital bribes in order to get artificial actions/leads from people. In case of incentive offers you can allure people by giving them extra gifts, coupons, money, etc in order to get action from them. On the other hand, these digital bribes are strictly prohibited in the case of non-incentive offers.

7. Offer type:

CPA networks included offers of various types such as Pin submit, Email submits, Downloads, Survey, Installs, Mobile, Purchase, etc.

In addition, I want to share some trending communities of CPA marketers which can help you to stay updated with the latest events of the CPA world as well as increase your skill. Some of those communities are:

  • Warrior Forum
  • CPA Hero
  • CPA Elites


There are literally 100+ ways to promote CPA offers in order to make a profit. I can’t write about all those 100+ promoting ways in this single article. Here I will list some methods name which can be used to promote CPA offers. In the future, I will write detailed articles on each CPA offer promoting strategies so that you can also start making enough money from CPA marketing. Here goes some CPA offer promoting strategies:

Sharing on relevant groups and communities in various social networks like Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, etc. (I got my first ever CPA lead via sharing CPA link in Google+ which enhanced my confidence to start a new project on it)

  • You can create converting videos and get leads via video marketing on various platforms such as Youtube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, etc.
  • You can write high-quality content and promote your content via other blogs, Web 2.0 sites, and article directories.
  • If you have any blog that matches with any offers of CPA networks then you can use your blog to get conversion/action and make money.
  • You can also build an email list to get high-quality leads. In this case, I recommend GetResponse because of its high-quality service and affordability.
  • You can create totally new site based on any type of CPA offer and rank it to get unlimited CPA leads. This is what I am basically doing for myself.
  • You can buy banner ads and spread your CPA offers without having your own site.
  • Running Facebook ad campaigns and PPC campaigns will also end up with a big profit from CPA offers.


There are several payment methods that are supported by tons of CPA networks. However, I found Paypal and Bank transfer very common among all the networks I have tried. Besides, you can also get your payment via Skrill, Payza, Payoneer, Check, Western Union, etc. I highly recommend you to sign up for a Payoneer account which comes with a virtual back account under Bank of America. You can use this bank account to get all your affiliate money. I prefer Payoneer over Paypal because with the help of a Payoneer master card I can get cash from an ATM at any corner of the world.


I think you got the basic knowledge about CPA marketing and now it’s your turn to take action based on what you have read in this article. I am giving you exact foot-steps that you need to follow right now:

  • Choose a CPA network and apply for a publisher/affiliate account.
  • After getting approval, go to the offer section and browser all the offers.
  • Choose a particular country and offer to get started. Keep your eyes on conversion rate or EPC (Earning Per Click) while choosing an offer. CPA offers of high conversion rate or EPC are always preferable.
  • If you can’t afford to build a site then try social media, video sharing sites, and Web 2.0 sites to promote your CPA offers.
  • On the other hand, if you can afford to create a website/blog then I highly recommend going with it. Just get your domain from NameCheap and hosting from A2Hosting in order to make your first CPA site to get started on the way to making an automated cash flow.
