How can you get traffic to promote offers?

Before setting your source of traffic, know in advance whether the offer you choose allows the source of traffic or not. You can check on the allowed traffic sources in the offer description inside our platform – we always collect this information for your convenience.

There are times when an offer does not allow certain traffic sources if you violate the rules of advertisers – they have a right to penalize you. So it’s always beneficial to play by the rules. These rules exist in each offer on our CPA network. Make sure you read which traffic sources are prohibited and permitted before promoting any offer.

First, let’s discuss the traffic sources that are free of charge.

Free Traffic

Don't be fooled by the word "free".

Free traffic does not mean that you don’t need any money at all. The advantage of using this method is that you don’t need the cost to start. The media that we will use is free and open.

It’s main weaknesses are that it’s volumes are usually limited and it’s hard to guarantee the constant influx.

Using the free traffic method is best suited for beginners who don’t want to use a lot of capital to get started.

But considering there are some weaknesses, it’s a great opportunity to gradually learn the method of paid traffic or direct costs. To use free traffic, you need a free blog, Instagram or other social media account, and the most importantly – some free time on your hands.

Search Engine (SEO)

SEO is a method of getting traffic that is popular for all types of online businesses and internet marketing, including CPAs. Traffic from search engines is also one of the most qualified and right on target. Advertisers love leads coming from organic SEO sources and you pretty muchguarantee yourself high approval rates from such traffic.

But there are a few disadvantages to it as well:

Search engine algorithms are constantly changing
It takes time for your website to get a good ranking

The first disadvantage is not really a problem unless you use the black hat SEO technique that violates the rules of search engines as well as advertisers.

Social Media

Social Media can be not only a free sources of traffic, but an awesome paid traffic source. 

For example, you can create a website, provide content that is useful for others, then we promote this website on social media. Such strategies work well for landing pages for specific products. 

Social media advertising is beneficial for it’s detailed targetting capabilities, where you can dfine your audience to increase your chances of getting a conversion. 

Video Marketing

YouTube is one of the most crowded websites.  There are lots of people who search and watch videos on YouTube every day. Therefore, YouTube can be considered the second largest search engine after Google.

To promote the CPA offers on YouTube, you must make a video content that matches the offer. Then from the uploaded video, attach a link to your website or go directly to the link of the offer (not recommended).

Because videos are a little more difficult to create than websites, competition on YouTube is easier than in search engines, and you can see great results from such a promotion. In addition, your videos on YouTube can also rank well in search engines.

Community Forums & Sites

Good forums and community sites usually have strict moderators. Therefore, you will not be able to directly promote the CPA offers there.

But you can use your expertise or content from your website to attract visitors, who can convert:

Create useful content for forum members, then promote your link in the forum politely. Be careful … Community members will not like it when there are outsiders promoting their website carelessly. Share your experiences, or your knowledge on the topic, express your opinions, help others with advise, and build relationships – instead of blindly posting links to your websites.

Email Marketing

Email is a great way to promote affiliate products. Email is one of the most qualified sources of traffic. Email is personal, repeatable and targeted for a certain audience, which increases the chances of conversion. If you don’t have an email list, it’s good to start building it from now on.
