When I did CPA training from Vipul Taneja in 2013, I didn't know where I am going to lead in next 2-3 years.
I started as this was hot in the industry (it still is) and a lot of super affiliate guys were using this income model to bank good money.
I was already making money with affiliate marketing but I wanted to make little more money (like we all do).
So I made my mind and learnt priceless stuff from Vipul.
He shared some of the kickass techniques to select offers, track them, optimize them and finally make profit with them.
In short, his course was more than worth the investment.
I learned the stuff by investing time and money and still putting a lot of efforts to make it big.
So let's talk about CPA first.
CPA (Cost Per Acquisition or Cost Per Action) is a marketing model where companies pay you if you can send some people doing some actions. It can be filling a simple form, downloading a software, zip submit offer or toolbar installation.
You are sending people on a website where they are doing some free actions.
You will send the traffic with your affiliate link so that company can track your referrals, and they pay you nice amount when they get a lead.
Yeah, it looks like.
But there are a lot of technicalities and basic understanding when you'll jump into CPA marketing.
So here are the sites which helped me to learn more about CPA and dig deep for more understanding.
#1. Greed Reports
I'll start with this website, because this was the first website I joined when I started my CPA journey.
This site offers some of the kick ass case studies for newbies, beginner, intermediate and advance guys which can give you a quick start. They have written about all the pitfalls, niches, landing pages, angles and many more things to make this website a perfect resource for everyone.
When I started in 2013, I struggled a lot a find right landing pages and right set of images which I could use to run Facebook ads.
You might be aware that Facebook is very muc strict about using images in the ads. So finding right images might be a daunting task for you, because once they disable your Facebook ads account, you cannot get it back.
So I decided to join this website after 2-3 months in CPA.
In just $9/month you can get access of all the landing pages, scripts, images, case studies and everything.
So you can give it a shot if you are just starting out. I put this website on top as this is just $9/month investment and returns are huge.
