You’ve gotten your guts all gathered up, and you are ready to get your first CPA campaigns up and running. Well, first, you should sign up for some networks. Here are the guys I recommend you sign up with.
Now, you’ve set in your information. A couple days later, you get an email saying your application has been declined. Most people give up here. I don’t want this. So, here is how you are almost always guarenteed to get accepted into a CPA network.
Most CPA networks ask you to provide a site you are working on or have worked on. It doesn’t matter if you run PPC traffic to it or not, but you should at least provide an example that you know a little about being a webmaster. When I signed up for my first few networks, I just used an old blog about random things I found using Stumble Upon.
Give as much contact info as you can. Some networks like to call new affilaites before approving. Give up your AIM/MSN/Skype in the comments section to give further connectivity. Being able to communicate easily builds trust. CPA networks need to trust you to run quality traffic to their offers.
If all else fails…
So many people never have the courage to call up an affiliate network to ask to be accepted. Grow some balls and do it. Let them know you have some knowledge in PPC and are ready to send them lots of traffic. Hell, even lie to them if you have to and say you are spending xxxx amount of dollars each day to some private offers and are looking to expand a little bit. Google should be able to find the numbers. If not you can ask the members over at WickedFire.
