What is affiliate marketing (CPA)?

CPA marketing is an abbreviation for Cost Per Action, and it is one of the forms of affiliate marketing in which the marketer receives a commission when the customer carries out a specific order. Such as conducting a survey, recording some data, or purchasing a product.

Suppose, for example, that you own an application, and you want to market it so that the largest number of people can use it in order to achieve profits. Therefore, you may resort to advertisements or publishing content on your website or on YouTube in order to promote this application.

Or perhaps you turn to professional marketers , and when any marketer succeeds in bringing anyone to download your application, you give him a fee, or a commission.

This is affiliate marketing in brief, and because of the large number of companies that want to promote their services and offers, as well as the large number of marketers, the so-called Affiliate Networks have emerged, which we will learn about later.

Examples of affiliate offers (CPA)

Here are some examples of different affiliate offers in several fields.

This offer is intended to make customers download this application (for reviewing and collecting invoices in one place) and you will receive $0.49 for each download, which is specific to American traffic.

If you think that offers exist only for foreign traffic, you are wrong.

This offer is directed to Saudi traffic, and the goal is to get the visitor to register for this service using his phone number, and for each registration, you will receive $1.35.

I think the idea of ​​affiliate marketing (CPA Marketing) has become clear to you now.

Why is everyone seeking to profit from CPA?

There are several reasons why companies rely on this method of marketing, and also why many marketers rely on this method to earn thousands of dollars.

1- Ease of getting started in the CPA field 

Unlike other areas of earning money from the Internet, you can start in the CPA field with the least possible capabilities as a marketer, and sometimes you can even start without a website or anything like that.

And don't worry! I will tell you later how to start step by step.

2- Achieving benefit for all parties 

It has become clear to you in our definition of CPA marketing that it consists of the following elements:


The company submitting the offer

The affiliate network that organizes the relationship between the company and the marketer

The marketer and the affiliate network do not receive any compensation except when the customer implements what the company making the offer wants, and this makes all parties profit at the same time.

This is why you find that affiliate networks help marketers with all their capabilities to achieve results, and companies also provide all the information - in most cases - because each party depends on the other.

3- High commission rate 

Because of the power of this method of promotion, many companies allocate most of their marketing budget to affiliate marketing (CPA), which makes marketers get very good commissions.

You will find that sometimes companies offer very high commissions to professional marketers who achieve strong results.

4- The ease and diversity of promoting CPA offers 

You can promote CPA offers in more than one way, whether through free or paid traffic, which I will explain to you later in detail... Don’t worry.

CPA offers are many and varied, which makes it very easy for anyone, especially beginners, to choose the field that suits them, or to experiment until they find this field or niche.

There are other reasons why earning money from CPA affiliate marketing is a significant choice for many people, but I think the picture is clear to you now.

The most important CPA terms that you should be aware of 

There are some terms that, if you learn them first, the CPA field will become easier for you.

1- Conversion rate 

It is the ratio of the total traffic you bring to the offer page and the number of people who implement the offer.

For example, if you brought 100 people to the offer page, and only 10 people implemented the offer, the conversion rate would be 10%.

2- Vertical field 

 It is the field in which the offer is concerned (health, beauty, games), etc. It is also called Niche.

 Some marketing experts prefer that you work in a specific field until you become a specialist in it, while others advise that you try more than one field, especially if you are a beginner.

3- Profit by bringing interested customers (CPL) 

 The term (CPL - Cost Per Lead) is used when promoting offers in which the customer is asked to register some data, such as phone number, address, or email, like the last example I mentioned previously.

 This term is used only to differentiate between different offers, and these offers are usually easier to promote.

4- Affiliate Link 

 When you want to promote a specific offer on the affiliate marketing network, you get what is called an affiliate link, which is a special link that enables the affiliate network to track any marketer who promotes the same offer, so that the profits are distributed correctly.

5- Earnings per click (EPC) rate 

The word (EPC - Earnings Per Click) is the average profits that any marketer gets for every click on the affiliate link.

Affiliate networks use EPC to evaluate different offers. For example, if there are 100 marketers promoting the same offer, what is the average profit that one of them gets for each click?

It's simple. The total profits earned by marketers are calculated (100 in this case) and then divided by the total number of traffic these marketers brought in.

The higher this number, the more profitable it indicates that the offer is... Don’t worry, I will explain to you in detail later how to choose the best offers to promote?

6- Publisher

The publisher is the marketer who promotes the offer. Some affiliate networks call him by this name, and I wanted to mention it to you so that you do not get confused when you find him in any affiliate network .

7- Affiliate Manager 

The affiliate manager is the person designated by the affiliate network to help marketers in their work, and the better you are as a marketer and make good profits, the more the affiliate manager will care about you.

Try or strengthen your relationship with the affiliate manager, because he will help you in the future. He can give you exclusive offers for you to promote only, and he can also help you increase the profit from a specific offer that you are promoting, especially if you are bringing in good profits.

It can also help you get your profits at a rapid rate (sometimes on a daily basis), especially after you achieve good results.

8- Bridge Pages

One of the best ways to promote affiliate offers is not to send your traffic directly to the pages of the offers you are promoting, but instead you have to work on preparing this traffic first.

Here the term “Bridge Pages” appeared, which marketers use to try to convince traffic of the strength of the offer, and sometimes to obtain their emails to use them to promote other offers.

Sometimes these pages are called (Pre-Landers), and later I will provide you with a wonderful and effective way to exploit these pages.

The most important CPA networks

There are many networks on which you can find many offers in almost all fields, but like any field, there are some weak networks.

Each network also has some characteristics. There are networks that operate in certain countries, and there are also networks that operate in specific fields, in addition to the payment terms and methods that each network provides.

 To make it easier for you, here are the best affiliate networks and some information you need to know about each network.

1- Maxbounty Network

You should also write in the application some ideas about how to promote your offers, because this application is manually reviewed, because the Peerfly network is keen to deal with the best marketers.

At the present time, Peerfly has closed its doors for certain reasons. If it is not restored after the year 2022, we will remove it from this list!

3- CPALead Network

Rest assured? I will explain to you later everything you need to know about this method of promotion and how to exploit it to reach your first profits quickly... Continue reading?

These were the best affiliate networks in which you will find many profitable niches , and as I mentioned previously, there are many other networks such as:

Clickbooth network 

CPAgrip Network  

W4 network  

CPA Trend Network  

But I was keen to show you the best in terms of the strength of the offers and the ease of presentation, as well as our experience on the marketer’s website with various of these networks.

The most important areas in which you can work (CPA Niches) 

I will explain to you later how to get started in the CPA field and how to promote offers, but I want to first highlight the niches or niches.

Affiliate marketing includes many fields. Most companies working in these fields rely on CPAs to promote their services.

Most popular CPA domains 


Mobile Apps

Health (Weight loss – Fitness)

Financial matters (Finance services – Insurance)


Business services (B2B services)



Most of these companies rely on content makers and various marketers to promote their services and offers to obtain potential customers (leads) or sell their services or products directly.

But as you can see, there are some areas that are not suitable for us Muslims and Arabs, such as gambling and dating offers... We will talk in detail about this later.

If you are asking how to choose the niche that is profitable or that suits you, you will find it in the following point?

How to start working in the CPA field? 

Before you start working in the CPA field, you should know that there are two styles of work, and perhaps you should choose one of them... Let’s get to know them more.

The first method: owning a content platform (website - YouTube channel - Instagram account) 

Here, CPA affiliate marketing may not be your main source of profit, but you depend on it to increase your profits. Let me give you an example.

Suppose, for example, that you have a website about games, from which you earn through Adsense , you can promote CPA offers for games and increase your profits.

Or you can build a new website or YouTube channel in the field of gaming and use it to promote various affiliate offers. You can focus on CPA only for profit if you want to master this method.

Characteristics of the first method:

Converting traffic is somewhat easy because there is a relationship between you and your audience

You can use more than one marketing method (Facebook Messenger - Email Marketing ) and others

This method requires a lot of time and effort (making articles - videos)

You can promote more than one offer in the same field at one time or perhaps in areas that may interest your audience

You can tap into the same audience in the future

You can increase your profits by building special landing pages (pre-landers) to increase conversion rates and test different offers

The second method: direct promotion 

This method is relied upon by many marketers. You promote the offer directly, perhaps sending traffic to the offer page directly through your link.

Or you build simple landing pages (pre-landers) to prepare the traffic first and then send it to the display page.

Characteristics of the second method:

To achieve good results, you must rely on paid traffic

Achieving results does not take much time

You may need capital to start earning well

The possibility of promoting various offers in various fields

This method enables you to collect a lot of data about the best traffic sources, offers, and promotion methods

As you have seen, each method has advantages and disadvantages, and if you ask what marketers usually do, they rely on the second method most of the time.

But what if I told you that you can combine the two styles together, so that you get most of the advantages and avoid the disadvantages at the same time... This is what you will learn later.

But I think you still have some questions, about how to choose the niche and offers, and also how to bring traffic... You will find the answer in detail in the next item?.

How to profit from CPA affiliate marketing step by step 

In order for the picture to become clearer to you... here is what you must do step by step in order to profit from affiliate marketing (CPA).

1- Choose a niche (how do customers think?)

Before I tell you how to choose the right niche in the CPA field, you may be asking yourself now: How will the conversion take place? 

Or in other words, what will make visitors click on your link and complete the offer?... so that you get your commission. The answer is to provide interest.

See, for example, the following offers:

Get Lead to try Program

Purchase the Y app

Obtaining phone numbers for those interested in obtaining insurance for their car (Lead)

See how I will promote these offers:

I'll make a landing page talking about the problems that X-normalization solves and put a link to try out the demo

I will make a landing page that explains the features of the Y application, and I may add some evidence or information that those interested may need and which they will get if they purchase the application from my link.

A video explaining the problems faced by those who do not insure their cars, and how they can solve their problem and find out the insurance package that suits them with a phone call... I put the link to the offer.

If you look closely, you will notice the following:

The first offer is the easiest to promote

The second offer is perhaps the most difficult in terms of conversions

The third presentation will require the most effort

Therefore, as you think about choosing any niche, think first about the value you will add, and how you will convince customers according to your capabilities, interests, and budget.

And if you think it is difficult, you are wrong... It is easier than you imagine... and with time you will learn everything you will need... Also, if you continue reading, you will find that I have made all of this easier for you until you begin.

Now let me present to you the best niches in the field of CPA according to our experience on the marketer’s website:

Gaming niche : The niche is simple and its audience is very eager to try everything new, and creating content or landing pages is fairly easy.

CPL offers: Any niche in which you find many CPL offers is a great niche, because the conversion rate is very high, and you can promote it in more than one way.

Health and weight loss niche: One of the most profitable niches because people are eager to solve their physical and health problems in the easiest and quickest way.

Remember that choosing the niche also depends on the method you rely on in promotion that we talked about previously... and if you are confused or think that the matter is cumbersome... as I told you, it is very simple, just continue reading until the picture becomes clearer to you.

2- Register in one of the affiliate networks 

The second step is to find the place where you are looking for the best affiliate offers until you have a complete picture and decide to choose a specific niche.

We have previously explained the best affiliate networks and what distinguishes each of them... and I advise you to start with CPALead.

3- Find the offers that are suitable for you

Choosing the offers that suit you is a very important stage for profiting from affiliate marketing (CPA). If you choose the wrong offer, your effort or money may be wasted.

Each offer also has certain conditions and characteristics, such as:

Country (some offers are specific to specific countries)

Type of traffic (some offers do not prefer traffic from Facebook, for example)

The EPC value of the offer

As you can see, the process of choosing an offer requires an analysis of many factors, and for this reason we have devoted its own guide to it, which I advise you to read later after you finish these lines.

4- Start bringing traffic 

The fourth step is to start bringing traffic. This step is the most difficult in the eyes of many, and they may be right, because the quality of traffic determines the amount of profits you will get.

The most important thing that you have to keep in mind is whether you will send the traffic directly to the display page, or as we say (Cold Traffic), or will you work to configure it first so that it becomes (Warm Traffic)?

Because traffic is a very important point, you will find me talking about it in a separate point later.

5- Analyze the results to improve the conversion rate 

This is the most important step in marketing affiliate offers through CPA, because when you look at the data you collected from your marketing campaigns such as:

Traffic quality 

Quality of offers

Editing landing pages

Edit content

You can determine what brings the most profits, which is why professional marketers rely on testing everything (A/B Testing) until they find the best options that bring them the highest profits.

This is what we do on the Marketer website, and what I will tell you about later!

How to get traffic for CPA offers? 

There are two types of traffic, free traffic and paid traffic... and we will talk about them in detail.

Free traffic 

Traffic will not cost you a cent, such as traffic from the following sources:

Google search engine

YouTube traffic

Social media traffic ( Facebook - Instagram - Pinterest)

The difficulty with this traffic is that it requires effort and time to get it, and you must also be smart and know how to make him trust the offers that you recommend to him.

Each of these sources also has a specific style of dealing, and in order to get the most out of this traffic, I advise you to read the following guides.

The 8 best sources to bring free traffic to affiliate offers

The Complete Guide to Ranking in Search Results: SEO 2024

In each guide we published you will find simple and highly effective ways to get free traffic in order to profit from CPA offers.

Paid traffic

This is the best source of traffic in the opinion of CPA affiliate marketing experts, and we as a marketer also support this from our personal experience.

The most important sources of paid traffic that are suitable for CPA offers are:

Annoying ads : such as ads that appear to you before watching any movie or football match on well-known viewing sites that are widespread in all countries 

Pop up ads : These are the ads that appear to you about your visits to any site. There are some sites that sell these ads to marketers

Push Notification ads : Many sites ask you to subscribe to their notification list, whether on the desktop or on the phone. Many of these sites sell their subscriber lists, which marketers exploit.

These ads have occupied a large position in the recent period, and a good number of specialized networks have appeared in most niches

Facebook ads : They may be a little difficult, but they are the best ads, but you must take into account Facebook’s conditions, especially in the field of health and weight loss.

YouTube ads: More than wonderful ads, especially if they rely on professional landing pages

Native Ads: There are many advertising networks that try to compete with Google Ads and that provide more than enough solutions and targeting that are suitable for the field of CPA, such as the giant Taboola network.

Bing Ads: A good and fairly cheap source of ads on the Bing browser 

Paid traffic is a huge ocean, but it is worth every minute you learn about it, because it will make you achieve real profits from affiliate marketing through CPA.

God willing, we will publish comprehensive evidence about each of these sources, and we will start with Facebook ads ... but this is after you tell us that you “ want complete evidence about paid traffic ” in the comments... and the more comments there are, the faster we will publish the information.

In these guides, you will not only learn about the source of the traffic itself and the types of offers that suit it, but you will also learn how to create a successful advertisement in terms of design and writing... in order to achieve the best profits.

Relying on Content Locker

You may now think that making a profit from CPA is more difficult than you thought, as you need to do a lot of steps to start making a profit:

Choose a profitable niche

Choose the best offers

Search for the best traffic sources

Preparing traffic to implement the presentation

Here the importance of the Content Locker appears, which makes you avoid all these steps... I think you have come across it before, but let me explain it to you.

Haven't you ever tried to get a specific crack or password, or watched a movie and found that you couldn't get what you wanted until you completed a specific show, like the one in the following picture?

This is the Content Locker. You limit the amount of content for the person who wants it, and he will not get it until he completes the CPA offer. As you can see in the previous example, there are 5 affiliate offers.

What is also distinctive about this method is that the offers are changed automatically to suit the country of traffic and the device used (desktop - phone).

This method is very easy, and perhaps it is not as profitable as the previous steps, but it is suitable for beginners, and it will also make you make your first thousand dollars in the world of CPA as quickly as possible.

What is required of you in this method is to provide content that people desperately need, which will make them do anything to get it. If you complete the guide to the end, you will find a great way to get this content.

The dark side of the CPA field 

Before you continue the guide, I want to tell you several things that you should keep in be honest with you.

The best niche 

In fact, the best niche is not games... Rather, it is the dating niche, followed by gambling... This is because those interested in these fields are considered addicts.

As I told you before, work in these fields in particular is mostly forbidden, if not all... This is because of the types of offers themselves, which are not compatible with us as Muslims and even with the culture of non-Muslim Arabs.


The second reason is deception. Many of those who promote some of these offers lie to people... For example, you say to the visitor, Click here to get something for free... And you know that you will not give him anything for free... You just want him to complete the offer at any cost.

Unfortunately, many marketers rely on these two things to profit from CPA. As Yassin says, “This is the dirty side of CPA.”

This does not mean that you cannot earn in a legal and ethical way. After you avoid the offers we mentioned, you must be honest with the visitors themselves.

For example, you can put the word “Read more” on the landing page itself, which if the visitor clicks on will know the rest of the details of the offer, and that he may not win the free account.

Just as telecom companies do in their advertisements, they tell you to subscribe to the rest X and get 100 free minutes, then they say, “ Terms and conditions apply .”

You then discover that one of the conditions is that you must use these minutes on the same day, for example, or that the number is not 100 minutes each time. This way, telecom companies avoid any problems...and you should do the same.

Or you can say on the landing page while promoting the offer, “Get a chance to win a free account” - “Get a chance to win a free account,” or free money, or anything else... The important thing is not to lie to the visitor.

Then you actually give some of those who register for the offer the free account or something you promised them from your profits, thus avoiding any suspicions.

We had to mention this matter to you so that you have a clear and complete picture, so that you do not exploit the information that we will give you in the wrong way, and that you are responsible for what you do.

How to make your first $1000 through CPA? 

Remember I told you that there is a method that the marketer team relies on to profit from CPA, which makes you achieve profit as quickly as possible?

It's very simple. We rely on Content Locker in a very smart way, and we also rely on landing pages that we designed after many tests (A/B Testing), which achieve a very high conversion rate.

And it's not just us who make money this way, look at the profits of the people we shared this information with below!

Now you can apply the information you learned in this guide on your own...and it is more than enough to make profits in the CPA field on your own.
