Before you apply to any CPA Network is very important that you have a clear understanding of how you will be promoting the offers available on the CPA Network. Most networks like to work with seasoned veterans within the marketing industry, so it’s going to be important that you do not appear to be a newbie when it comes to marketing. You’ll need to understand certain basic concepts.
When you review an application form for a CPA network, you’ll find a listing of the types of promotion that you can select from as your means of promoting the offers. See image below for example :
Upon analyzing the screenshot above it shows the modes of publishing mode that are accepted by most CPA networks. You have the option for banner displays, pop-ups, text links, PPC, SEO, stand-alone emails and newsletter advertising.
You will have to decide which option you’ll be using to promote the CPA offers. Since at this stage it’s possible that you do not know which mode you’ll be using, I think it’s always best to select “Banners”, “Text Links”, and “PPC” as the options you’ll be using for promoting the CPA offers. Once accepted you can always add more options to the list. Your job is to ensure you get accepted into the network as quickly as possible and show them that you actually know what you are doing. The first step in applying for any CPA Network is to have a professional website setup. If you have an old domain name just sitting around, then it’s time to make use of that domain name, the older the domain name the better, as it can appear to be a site that was in existence for a long time.
Also, create an email address based on that domain name; that is the email address you’ll be using to contact them, as it’s more professional.
Do not use a free email address as your mode of contact via email. You can use WordPress that is available for free as your content management script to make things easy to set up. The reason you are setting up the site as a blog is simply that it’s a quick and painless process and with some of the great free themes available online, it can look professional without you having to do a lot of work. Once you have WordPress setup and installed on your site, you’ll need a theme to use. You can review these sites below for free themes to use for your blog.

Upon selecting your theme, and setting up your blog, then, of course, you’ll need to select a niche or topic for the blog, along with having content.
is pretty easy since you are not set up this blog to be a site that is going to make you money necessarily, but simply to show the CPA networks that you have a professional site that will allow you to get approved quickly.
Later, we can work on sites set up specifically for the CPA offers you’ll be promoting. The role of this site is just to have a “dummy” site more or less that you can use to get accepted by any CPA network. For the content of the blog, you can use PLR articles. There are many sites that offer free PLR articles that you can freely download and use on your blog. Most of these sites that offer free PLR articles will request that you signup to their newsletter but it’s a small price to pay for getting the free content that you can use for the setup of your blog.

Of course, you have the option of writing about ten articles on your own to fill your blog, but if you are looking to get started as quickly as possible, you can download articles from these sites above.
