Do CPA marketing instead of product promotion

CPA stands for Cost Per Action. It’s so much easier than promoting products. Because it doesn’t involve payment. You get paid when they take an “action”. Such as filling in a form. And getting them to do this is so much easier.

Utilize demographics data

You’re not even going to use keywords (explained below.) But demographics are highly important. First, select the CPA offer you want to promote. Next, you go to Quantcast.com. And discover the exact demographics of your ideal prospect.

Market on display networks

So far, you’ve got your CPA offer and your target demographics. You can target these exact demographics on display networks. And let images do the work. And there was no keyword research required. Plus you’re going to save a ton of money. Keyword ads are expensive, but image ads are still cheap.

Summing it up

This is truly a quick cash concept. Because it’s free to get started in CPA. Image ads are cheap. Display networks let you do demographics targeting. And getting them to take an action is much easier than making a sale.
