What to Expect When Applying to CPA Networks

To weed out scammers and newbies, nearly all legitimate CPA network has an application process. Because they all are using the same criteria in order to determine if applicants should be allowed to join or not, all CPA network online application forms are pretty much the same.

What You Will Need

Here’s the primary information they will ask you for:

– Personal Information – This includes your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, and so on.
This won’t disqualify you: CPA networks always have tons of non-US affiliates. The procedure will then depend on the network.

– Website – If you have a website that you are going to use to promote the CPA networks’ advertisers, you should list it here.  You can leave this blank or just put something like will-discuss- in-phone-interview if you don’t currently have a website or are planning on setting up individual websites for each offer. com or www.LandingPageIsOfferSpecific.com and they usually can figure it out.

– Experience – What internet marketing experience you have. Don’t exaggerate or lie. If you are an absolute beginner, simply tell them you are looking too anxious to get started in Internet Marketing and discuss the plans you have to promote their offers in as much detail as you can.

– Your Plan– How you plan on promoting their offers. Explain as briefly as possible how you typically promote affiliate offers (PPC, SEO, and so on).

How to Get Past the Telephone Screening

Some CPA networks don’t phone screen their applicants at all. Because if they are letting everybody in the door they probably don’t have a great client list, you probably are going to want to stay away from these CPA networks.

They are all pretty much the same once you have been through the first phone screening. Typically, they only last about a two or three minutes and the screening party will ask two or three questions.

Basically, they are trying to determine if you are on the up and up and not a scammer or newbie. Here are some typical questions you can expect:

– How much traffic do you anticipate generating?
– How much do you spend daily/weekly/monthly?
– How did you hear about our network?
– How long have you been promoting CPA offers?
– How do you plan on promoting the offers?
– Do you belong to any other networks? If so, which ones?
– What kind of offers do you like?
– What niche of offers are you interested in?

Try writing out your answers to these questions and practice answering them out loud before your first phone screen if it helps you. Try to sound as experienced and confident as possible.
While phone screen can be intimidating at first, after a few they become second nature and you will have nothing to worry about.

Calling the CPA Network

Sometimes you can avoid the phone screen altogether if you contact the CPA network after your submit your application but before they call you. Many CPA networks’ home page will have a telephone number listed under their “Contact Us” tab.

Ask to speak to the person in charge of the affiliate applications if you reach them. Once you reach that person, introduce yourself by name and explain that you have just submitted your application and are interested to know how long the approval process takes or if there is any additional information you can provide.

A lot of affiliate marketers won’t take this step, but they absolutely should because it indicates to the CPA network that you are serious and ambitious about promoting their clients.
Plus, developing a relationship with somebody at the CPA network is helpful later on when you are doing business with them especially you are having issues or problems, which can sometimes happen. It’s always nice to have a name you can call on the inside.

This won’t disqualify you: CPA networks always have tons of non-US affiliates. The procedure will then depend on the network.
