Do you want to start with CPA marketing, but heard all the stories that it’s very hard to get accepted to the CPA networks without a previous marketing experience and without having to go through a phone verification?
Well, prepare to find out that it’s not that hard to get accepted to all the CPA networks.
Below I made a list of 5 CPA networks for beginners where my application has been accepted even when I had fewer experience in the field and without having to go through a phone verification process with an affiliate manager.
These 5 networks should be enough for you to get your hands dirty with the CPA marketing (the order is random).
I cannot give you any guarantees that the affiliate review process of these CPA networks listed below hasn’t suffered any changes since I’ve applied to become an affiliate. You will also still need to explain on the registration page how you are going to promote the CPA offers of the network you are going to apply to.
Peerfly is my number one choice because it has a lot of offers and in a lot of niches. I think Peerfly is also in the top 5 CPA networks in the world.
If you are not already a member of Peerfly network and you want to make a better idea about what offers you can expect to find inside, you can use this site to take a look at the offers.
The affiliate managers are very active and helpful whenever you need them ( at least mine is – Lauren Hostert 🙂 ).
The members’ area is clean and straightforward, and you can easily look for offers and filter the offers based on payment type, category, allowed traffic sources, allowed countries, and so on.
The best part is that they don’t have a phone verification process for the people who apply as affiliates.
Peerfly is the CPA network I’ve been experienced the most with so far (I’m still a beginner in the CPA field).
Mobidea is another accessible CPA network without very strict acceptance rules.
This network focuses on mobile CPA offers and at the time I’m writing this post, they have a database of 1179 offers (mobile games, apps, Sweepstakes, etc.).
Mobidea has a lot of international offers with some pretty decent payouts. You can filter the offers by a few important criteria, so you should have no problems finding a good offer to promote.
If you are a beginner and you want to learn more about how to promote CPA offers, I would recommend you to check Mobidea Academy.
Mobidea Academy is a collection of free blog posts about CPA and affiliate marketing. You will learn how to track CPA offers, how to optimize your campaigns, different traffic sources, and different valuable guides.
Another network that didn’t require a phone verification interview is Adscend Media.
Adscend Media network focuses more on incentive offers, surveys, mobile apps, and content locking.
They are publisher friendly, and their help center includes articles on how to get started, the various offer types, and some other useful information for a CPA newbie.
AdscendMedia network has at the time I’m writing this post around 1250 of active offers in their inventory.
Adwork Media is another CPA network that has accepted my request to become a publisher pretty easy.
The offers you can find inside this network are similar to the type of offers from Adscend Media.
Adwork Media provides you a variety of tools for promoting incentive offers with content locking (a content locker, link locker, product locker, offer wall, smart links and a global traffic monetizer).
At the time I write this post, AdWork Media has 2,279 active offers.
Once a member, you will also get access to a “Guides” section where you’ll find a list of recommended tools, resources and traffic sources for promoting AdworkMedia offers.
In the dashboard page, you’ll see a section displaying the statistics from the network and how much other affiliates are earning (how much money they have earned today, how many clicks they have sent to the offers, their leads, EPC, and conversion rate).
Warning! Looking at other people stats can motivate or depress you if you are not making any money 🙂
CPAlead is another CPA network where I’ve been accepted with ease (twice). Twice because I first applied about one year ago, but I didn’t promote any offers from CPAlead. In the meantime, I’ve forgotten my password, and I also couldn’t access the email address to reset my password, so I had to apply again as a publisher.
Most of the offers listed on CPAlead are “incentive” offers, but there are also a few non-incentive offers.
To promote a non-incentive offer, they will require you to tell them what kind of traffic you will be sending, including any appropriate landing page URLs, campaign info, etc. You are approved by default for promoting incentive offers.
At the time I write this post, they have 225 active offers.
CPAlead has a built-in feature that allows you to create content lockers. Lockers can be used to lock a piece of content, the download URL of a file, a video, etc. until the visitor completes a survey or installs a mobile app.
I haven’t tested this type of offers yet, but I’ve heard that some people have a real success with content lockers.
What I found to be a unique feature of CPAlead (at least I haven’t seen this on any other CPA network I’m a member of) is “Niches”.
In CPAlead, Niches are basically ready-made landing pages submitted by users to CPAlead network. These Niches promote locked content and when visitors to your Niche complete a survey or install a mobile app to get access to the Niche content, you will earn money. The creator of the Niche will earn 15% of the amount you earn.
You don’t need to pay anything to promote these Niches and you don’t need to have a web host since these pages are already hosted (here’s an example).
These are only a few CPA networks I would recommend for beginners because I was able to easily get my publisher request accepted without a phone interview and without headaches.
I’m sure there are a lot more other beginner friendly CPA networks and if you know more CPA networks that don’t require a phone interview or a vast marketing experience, you can leave a link in the comments section and I will be happy to add your recommended network to the list.
Also, as an additional tip.
Most of the networks that are focused on “incentive” offers should easily accept you because the advertisers on these networks are not too picky.
