CPA Marketing: What is it and Where to Start?
What is CPA Marketing?
Cost per action marketing, also known as CPA marketing, is a subtype of affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is a performance based marketing that deals with the promotions of other brand’s products or services, and receiving a commission based on how many people end up purchasing these products as a consequence of your promotion efforts.
Although CPA marketing is a subtype of affiliate marketing, there are actually some key differences between the two. Unlike affiliate marketing, CPA marketing doesn’t require someone to actually purchase the promoted product or service in order to receive a commission. Most often, payment is determined by lead generation, such as filling out a form, submitting your email address to an email list, watching a video, etc. Therefore, as the name suggests, CPA marketing is based on the payment of an action that occurs as a result of your marketing efforts. It is not solely based on whether someone purchases the promoted product.
What are the Benefits of CPA Marketing?
There are several benefits involved with CPA marketing. This is due to the fact that it is quite profitable when you target the right audience and connect with high quality brands. Here are some key benefits of CPA marketing:
