Even if you have no website, you can still get accepted into a CPA network. You might think that sounds ridiculous, but as long as you can prove that you have the means to attract traffic to a CPA offer, that's really all they care about. There are people out there making money with CPA offers who don't use their own websites to promote the offer or even have a single landing page of their own. They use the advertisers’ landing pages and they just scoop traffic up from one area of the Internet and take it to another. It's really that simple.
What If I Get Rejected?
Even if you don't get a call the same day you submit your application, don't assume you've been rejected. It can take up to three days (or more) for an affiliate manager of the CPA network to contact you by phone, especially if you submitted your application over a weekend or during a holiday. They typically do try to make contact within the first 24 hours, but this is not always possible. If you haven’t heard anything after three days it's possible your application has been rejected, so you need to be proactive to see what types of problems might have been spotted on your application and work to overcome those objections.
First, you will need to know what affiliate manager has been assigned to you; look for their name in the email notice you receive when you first apply online. Once you know whom to contact, you can email them based on the email addresses on your CPA network website or use AOL messenger if you have that available. There is an online list that has most affiliate administrators ‘names on it at: http://affaimlist.com. It's a great list to keep nearby as you're awaiting approval because it also shows you when they are online. They are interested in getting people who can provide value to their advertisers on board, so don't hesitate to make contact and ask the status of your application.
If they say it is denied, find out why. In many cases, they may accept additional proof or documentation to reverse their decision and grant you approval to join them. Even if you get turned down, use it as a learning experience. There are literally hundreds of CPA networks out there, and one of them is bound to say “yes.” Just put your best foot forward and be available to answer any questions they might have about your application.
