CPA marketing and other forms of affiliate marketing can have a tough learning curve, but there is one method of promoting offers that is roughly speaking as close as you can come to copy and paste.
Sound too good to be true? It almost is, but its completely legitimate, and veteran marketers have been making fortunes with it for years. What is this mystery technique? Media buys.
The phrase media buys is far from innovative. For many years, it has been used to explain the process of purchasing advertising in traditional print magazines and newspapers, or on radio and television. Although these are still completely viable advertising mediums, the Internet is the new scorching hot commodity in the advertising market, and holds opportunities for marketers lacking the deep pockets required to advertise elsewhere.
In effect, media buys require buying banner advertising space on websites, with the cost depending on the websites prominence and traffic, the size of the advertising campaign, the times at which the banners are to be displayed, and other criteria. Payment for these ad campaigns is generally calculated on the basis of CPM (cost per thousand impressions), meaning that unlike PPC, where you are paying every time your ad is clicked, you are paying a set rate every time a visitor sees your ad. Depending on the ad tariff, you may possibly end up getting very cheap clicks.
Traditionally, advertisers have had to pay advertising agencies to design advertising campaigns for them. However, many companies with affiliate programs are currently providing their affiliates with pre-made banner ads in various different standard sizes for free of charge, either directly or through an affiliate network.
As the affiliate, this means that all you have to do do get started promoting affiliate and CPA offers with banners is literally cut and paste a snippet of code. Cut, paste, and youre done no need to wrack your head to come up with ad copy, spend hours in Photoshop or write any code. It has all been done for you.
Of course, just like any other kind of offer promotion, there are tricks of the trade that substantially boost your odds of achievement, and while you can simply jump in and hope for the best, you are far better off learning from a professional who has tested and tweaked techniques for maximum profits.
Your business choices online are vast; just decide what really interests you, and put your full efforts into becoming successful at it.
