CPA vs Affiliate Marketing


#1

Let’s do a little survey. What do you prefer CPA or Affiliate network and why?


#2

CPA would be my choice atm.
Affiliate marketing is better but it requires more time, and that’s something I don’t have.


#3

I thought affiliate marketing. i was thinking that internet marketing methods are good for affiliate marketing


#4

I would say marketing , so you can keep track of everything and be sure no one shaves your profits


#5

What does that mean? Shave my profits?


#6

It’s basically when you should get paid for an action some user does, but either the buyer, or a middleman(the ads network) lies to (says the user you brought haven’t made an acquisition)you and takes your profit


#7

Wow. Does this happen with the big networks?


#8

No network would admit they are doing this, but everyone says that all the networks are shaving . more or less , i can’t really say yes or no ) just what i’v heard


#9

Suggestion for good affiliate network?


#10

more you try, more you can choose best fit for yourself, some of the people are using @Ogads some adworksmedia(i think it’s right), though adnan is the guy who knows his shit about cpa networks, i’m just a lurker here ) hehe


#11

What niche are you interested in?


#12

weight loss, beauty products.


#13

Check MarketHealth and MoreNiche affilate programs. They have what you need.

Peerfly also have some affiliate offers, but these above are specialized in health/weight loss/beauty.


#14

Right now, CPA. Although it makes me uncomfortable, to say the least. I feel like I’m not contributing much in the world. :smiley:

Long-term though, I would go with affiliate marketing (or to be specific, marketing my own products). If I’ll affiliate for someone, I should first believe in the product and really positively think it’ll help others. That way, I can work violently in promoting it.


#15

Hey,

sorry for my noob question, but can you clarify what you do mean with CPA and Affiliate Marketing? What’s the difference?

Up to my knowledge:
CPA = cost per acquisition i.e. you get paid for some action performed by your visitor (app install, mail submit, etc…)
Affiliate marketing: broader. You get a commission on anything (example for a sale, like revenue share).

Maybe in this context these words have a different meaning?


#16

Some good networks that I’ve made money for 2 years : Clickbank , CJ (Commission Junction) , Amazon Associate Affiliate , Shareasale… that’s all bro :smiley: .


#17

You do know that CPA is one of the affiliate marketing. price models ?! So if you do CPA you basically work with affiliate marketing :grin:
