Getting accepted by CPA networks is something I see a lot of people new to the affiliate marketing industry struggling with. It doesn’t have to be that way though. It’s actually quite easy if you know what to say.
Think of it as a job interview, a job interviewer is looking for certain things in you right? He wants to make sure you’re right for the job. Now I know some people freak out and get all nervous and don’t know what to say during a job interview… But is actually quite simple. Just tell them what they want to hear.
So what do they want to hear you might ask… Basically, what the CPA networks want to hear comes down to these two things:
A) That you understand the industry
B) That you’re serious about business
In most cases you can get approved by making them understand that you understand the industry. If you don’t have a website though you will probably have to put in some more effort. Make sure that both point A and B are taken care of in your application, point B is basically selling yourself so do a good job at that.
It’s ok to tell them that you’re just starting out, everyone has to start somewhere. Just make sure that they understand that you’re serious about business, and that you know what you’re doing. If you can manage to get those points across you will almost always get approved.
And last but not least, call them. If you really want to be approved by a particular network, just pick up the phone and call them. Apart from speeding up your approval process it also helps you to get approved in the first place. Point A and B still apply of course so make sure you know what you’re talking about before you call them.
If you have any questions or comments about getting approved feel free to leave a comment…
