Pay Per Lead Affiliate Programs Are The Holy Grail For Beginners

Guest Post by Franck Silvestre

If you are trying to make money online for more than one month, I bet you already heard about affiliate marketing.

It's the fastest easiest way to get started online and make some real money.

What most beginners don't know is that you don't need to sell anything to make money with affiliate programs. You can make money when a website visitor perform an action like signing up for more information or downloading a toolbar or screensaver.

Those pay per lead programs are called Cost Per Action (CPA).

If you are new to CPA programs, let me show you how it works.

1. Getting started

There are two big schools of thought.

The first is that you should pick your market first, and then, pick a product that is proven to sell in this market.

The second school of thought says that you choose the product that people already buy first, and then, you promote it to hungry buyers in the market.

Personally, I do both, but if you are just getting started and didn't make your first sale yet, I suggest that you choose option two, because beginners generally struggle to find a niche.

2. Grabbing your CPA offer

This is a little bit more tricky than traditional pay per sale affiliate products (you are paid when someone actually buy the product you are promoting).

Let's say you want to start with Market Leverage.

With the CPA affiliate network like Market Leverage for example, you will need to go through an application process.

Most of the time, you will be asked how you will promote the offer, and they will also ask you for a website's url.

Just say that you are going to promote with seo. If you have the budget, you can also say PPC.

Once you sign up, an affiliate manager will contact you to see if you are a real person, and ask you a couple of questions to see if you qualify.

Don't worry. Here is a little known trick that will help you to be accepted in any affiliate network.

Please be honest. Don't tell your affiliate manager that you earn $2000.00 per month when you never made a dime online. Just tell the truth. Here is the twist what should get you in easily.

Just tell to your affiliate manager that you are brand new and that you never made a dime online, but that you are going to do whatever you can to make a lot of commissions every month for his network only.

You get it?

Here is why it works:

His role is to help you earn more. He is not doing this because he loves you, but the reason is that when you make money, the affiliate manager makes money. If you earn more, he earns more as well.

When you tell him that you are going to make money EXCLUSIVELY for this network, he will think twice, and you'll have more chances to be approved if you are just getting started.

If you are not accepted (it happens sometimes), don't worry, you have two things to do:

1. Call again

Just call the affiliate manager after one week, and he will see that you are serious.

2. Go the the next CPA affiliate networks, there are dozens of them and you should get accepted when you apply what I teach.
