Tips for CPA Networks Acceptance

CPA NetworksSome CPA networks can be easy to gain acceptance to, but the ones that really pay are a lot more difficult to tap into. For instance, you may find some CPA offers from affiliate programs you are already working for, such as Commission Junction or Share-A-Sale. These offers may be called something other than CPA, such as Pay Per Lead offers. You may get in the door here faster, but conversion won’t be as impressive as they would with the dedicated CPA networks.

The reason CPA networks are so choosy about who they accept is because there was a rich history of less than honest marketers making wrongful claims to trick people out of their personal information. Preferring to end all that, and work with legitimate marketers only, these CPA networks have become notoriously difficult to gain acceptance into.

The first step to setting yourself up for acceptance into CPA networks is to set up a nicely designed website in one of these niches:

  • Weight Loss
  • Fitness
  • Health
  • Beauty
  • Coupons
  • Ringtones

Find a good WordPress theme that fits with your chosen niche and modify it as needed to look professional and true to your personality and niche.

There are thousands of different WP themes out there and many are completely free. Write fresh content for the site, preferably between 8 and 15 great articles tightly focused to your chosen niche. You can outsource to a professional writer if you don’t have the time or skill to do this well.

Get your site indexed with Google prior to applying for any CPA networks!

Once you apply, don’t be shocked if someone from the CPA networks gives you a phone call to ask some questions. Most will conduct initial interviews to ensure you are someone they want to associate with professionally. Be prepared to give details of your experience level and to explain some ideas about how you might market their particular products. If you don’t give enough detail or seem unsure of yourself then an application decline is likely to come shortly after.

This means you have to familiarize yourself with the network and have some great ideas up your sleeve before you even apply!

CPA networks also love to ask about your list, so don’t you dare go telling them you don’t have one or don’t know what one is! If you really don’t have one, get on that right this moment by signing up with an autoresponder service like Aweber or perhaps phpList if you are on a tight budget. Lists are very important in this business, so get used to talking about them.

When filling out your application, it is always best to use your business name rather than just your personal name. This makes you look more professional and will evoke more trust and respect from the CPA network members who have to approve you.

On a final note, take a piece of advice from the dating world: just be yourself! You don’t want to exaggerate your income and fake your personality when you go on a date and you don’t want to do that when applying for CPA networks acceptance, either. This is very important because if you brag that you are making thousands of dollars monthly and then you can’t rise to your own false standards they are likely to figure you out and cancel your account at some point.

Follow these simple guidelines and you should have no problem getting accepted into the top-level CPA networks.
