1. What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is a method used to promote an advertiser's online business in which an affiliate (an individual or company unrelated to the advertiser) is rewarded for every visitor, subscriber, customer, lead, or sale generated for the advertiser through that affiliate's efforts.
2. What is a CPA network?
A CPA Network connects advertisers with affiliates who will promote their offers on a cost-per-action (CPA) basis. Rather than paying up front for advertising space, the advertiser only pays for a pre-determined action (customer lead created, sale completed, etc.). The affiliate is then paid for every one of those pre-defined actions they can generate for the advertiser's offer. CPA marketing is often referred to as "performance-based" or "lead-generation" marketing.
3. How do affiliates promote my offers?
By utilizing our network of affiliates, you can dramatically increase the exposure of your offer. The best part is that you aren't paying just for exposure, (as with traditional advertising) you're only pay for actual leads or sales. Our affiliates are able to utilize a wide variety of marketing techniques to promote offers within our network. Some examples of online marketing channels used by our affiliates include email, banner (display), social, search (PPC) and incentivized, just to name a few.
