Thanks so much for this. I hadn't thought about the benefits of using newspaper, cabel, and radio as a means of advertising in affiliate marketing.

I also didn't know about the pay per click. Will check these out to see what is best for me or maybe a combination of things.

I always learn so much from you. Keep up the good work. have bookmarked this for future and to help others.

Blessings,
Lynda

Thanks Lynda,

I know the value of offline marketing because I own a brick and mortar business and I've used various methods of local offline advertising for many years.

I had never tried to apply the offline method with affiliate marketing until I was an affiliate for Dish Network, I made 90% of my money advertising Dish from offline marketing methods.

There's plenty of different types of affiliate marketing programs and CPA can be good, but you need to check out the terms of the platform and the merchants you plan to market.

Happy to help if I can.

Thank you for the great information! I am new here to wealthy affiliate and am interested about CPA. I did however make a website through the training, and my website is to help people find the right pet food for their pets.

I was wondering though to join a CPA, would you think that I can use this website or should I create another one based on a certain CPA affiliate offer that I find?

Every CPA platform differs a bit from the others, I would suggest joining whichever platform you decide to try out and search that platform for things that may relate to your niche.

They will tell you the terms of conditions for promotion and you can apply, some are instant approval and others require to be manually viewed before approval is given.

Since I am not in the niche of pet food I couldn't tell you which platforms that may have affiliate offers in that niche. I would try a few platforms and see which you like the best.

I hope this helps you in making decisions with affiliate platforms. The platforms all provide unique services for affiliate marketers.
JVZoo like others offers great commission percentages up to 70% that I've seen and they also provide training and ways to promote.

This information is extremely helpful and educational. I have had a very difficult time finding clothing for full figured women; that meets my approval. Thank you for all of your hard work in developing this series.

You can join CJ and click advertisers and search the keyword term " full figure ", the result will be an offer for Avenue that seems to be converting well according to CJ.

Ok what or who is CJ? It's late and I've been blessed with some good ole soul food.. My brain has shut down, sorry.

CJ is a network affiliate marketing platform that is free for you to join. Once you join you can do the search I mentioned above, to join go to CJ dot com or Google CJ and become a CJ affiliate to promote products. The search appeared that Avenue pays around 5% to 6% for sales which is competitive with Amazon commission rates.

Interesting about CPA. Are there upsells with some of those CPA programs that you mentioned on this post? Only thing that bothers me is the constant upsells and I don't like to force consumers to buy it if they cant afford it. For instance promoting a $997 product. If I know I cant afford it, then others wont either. Why should I try to force people to buy it makes me look fake and dishonest.

Some CPA offers have upsells and others are just the one product. When it comes to CPA marketing of course you want to research the product for a good fit for your site. I never judge what another is willing to spend, but I do find products that are reasonable. I'm working on a cpa page right now for an inexpensive $2.00 download that I'm hoping will convert. All affiliate platforms have at least some merchants that offer upsell products, but if the products are valuable in the funnel than it's not fake or dishonest, some products are expensive and some people will spend big.

Like clickfunnels for example, its very expensive. I could not afford their products, too many up-sells, even some spend big, I know they are effective at what they do, they sell a lot of high ticket sales especially their masterminds groups-yes and these people pay big money to go because they can afford it or they put themselves in debt, and by doing that its possible they will have negative debt -that isn't good for maintaining a good credit score. Some expensive products are not even worth the $997 price. I can find the very same information free via the Internet. I do not need to pay $997 for a course or $10k for a course or mastermind group, just gets the person who set it up get filthy greedy rich- I dislike that.

I agree some products are expensive and Clickfunnels is $97 a month or $297 a month with Actionetics included just for the use of Clickfunnels. That does not include all of Russell Brunsons books that are also being sold by so many affiliate marketers.

SFM (Six Figure Mentors) has upsells of more than $2500 and offer an affiliate program to promote SFM. They have been in business online since 2010.

I chose Wealthy Affiliate because of what these other sites were charging to learn what I have learned here. The price here is very reasonable and what WA offers cost me less than a dollar a day.

I find useful products that can be used for specific niches with many of these platforms mentioned in this training tutorial.
I try to target products for less than $100 that I can promote.

The commission rate percentage I look for is between 30% and 70% and I've seen 100% CPA offers that look great too.

Yes, what you wrote above is exactly the same research I did on Russell. Thats why in my review site will explain that they can find same thing here on WA for less cost and no up-sells. We can build our own sales funnel in WP. I know clickfunnels cost $97 a month for the basic one but there are other people’s products within CF to promote like Lady Boss, (fitness guru), many other people learn how to make their own courses and promote it as an affiliate product or 100 dollar challenge thats coming up soon. I have nothing against them. I watched their shows. They are effective with their other products. I am on their emailing list. Just that its very costly wouldn't fit with someone like myself with low income. Thats why I chose WA Platform. Thanks to Kyle and Carson to make this affiliate program affordable for everyone.

I love Clickfunnels, I'm an affiliate and I completed their free Bootcamp. What I especially loved about their Bootcamp was the full in depth training of the back business platform of Facebook.

While I don't promote on FB as a paying customer right now, when I decide to do that I know exactly how to pin point laser targeted traffic to my offers all thanks to Clickfunnels Bootcamp.

I'm like you on a budget, that's why I joined WA as a yearly premium member. One day in the future if I am making good money I wouldn't hesitate to join Clickfunnels and give it a shot.

I will always stick with WA as I can't match what I get here as opposed to any other program in terms of support and hosting. I can't say enough for this platform since I've completed my training.

To me WA is the best that's out there in a sea of over saturated offers that make promises but do not all deliver. The best thing I ever did was join the Wealthy Affiliate Premium subscription.
