Work closely With Your Affiliate manager
After the approval of your entry to the CPA network, you will be assigned under an affiliate manager whose task is to ensure your marketing success within that network.
What you should try to do is make the most of these networks by working closely with the affiliate manager. You should let the manager know about the modes of marketing with which you are most comfortable.
This would enable the manager to give you valuable suggestions on which kind of offers would work well with the traffic generation strategies which you are good at. Moreover they would also give you good suggestions about which offer would help you generate maximum profit within the network.
Check the Terms
Ensure that you check all the terms and conditions for each and every offer before you start promoting it. There are many CPA offers which only allows one to make use of certain strategies for generating traffic.
Let us take an example: You see a free trial offer for a skin whitening product which you want to follow. However on looking deep into the terms and conditions of the offer you might be finding that one can only promote the offer by making use of social networking and banner advertising.
No other forms of promotion would be tolerated by that offer. This implies that you will not be able to use other traffic generation strategies like PPC search engine marketing or email marketing.
Make sure at all costs to closely follow the terms and conditions of a particular CPA offer or else the advertiser would stop you from promoting the offer. In such a situation the commissions generated by you is going to be taken back and you will not get a penny for the work done by you so far.
Make Use of White Hat Techniques
If you are into CPA marketing then try to make sure to use white hat techniques. White hat techniques are those CPA marketing techniques which are correct proper and ethical.
In case the advertiser gets to know that you are promoting their offers by using unauthorized or unethical techniques then chances are high that he or she will stop you from promoting further offers.It goes without saying that whatever commissions were accumulated by you would be reversed.
Moreover you also run the chance of getting barred from the network. If you are unsure whether the traffic generation strategy devised by you is ethical or unethical, you should always consult your affiliate manager.
