Is it Worthy Promoting Free CPA Offers?  

As you want to make money from CPA offers, it’s essential to know the pros and cons of promoting free CPA offers first.  


  • If you choose to promote CPA offers without investing in any domain-hosting, you need to wait for some time before you see a real profit.  But once you are established in CPA marketing doing your own strategies, you can expect it to be a good source of steady revenue.   
  • It won’t cost you a tremendous amount of money, or any at all if you use only free social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. You can also use Facebook ads for as little as $5-$10 per day, which might turn out to be both cheap and effective.  


  • Promoting CPA offers without using a personal website can be economical, but you can’t expect to make money from it the soonest possible time. You have to work very hard in promoting your CPA offers in various ways, the payout might be too low, and you might be wasting a lot of time.  
  • If you promote CPA offers without using a website or customized landing pages, you need to undergo training first to get the hang of it. Also, it may be difficult to drive traffic and gain leads from specific regions or countries.  

Regardless of the disadvantages of promoting free CPA offers, still many affiliate marketers choose to promote them. Beginners can try it if they know where to start, but the first thing to do is to identify the traffic sources that you’ll be using. You can use YouTube, social media, and blogging on free platforms such as Blogger.com. It is also essential to choose the niche appropriate to your offer.  

If you choose to promote an offer of some kind, make sure you deliver what you have promised to your target audience. Make sure the products or service you’re offering provides value and can help to solve the problems of your audience. After creating your content, take time promoting it to your friends, followers, and e-mail list.   

You must track or monitor how your promotion is going. You need to check constantly how the users interact with your content. If you notice that your promotion or advertisement is not getting any leads, or too little, then you should change it immediately. Otherwise, if you decide to let a third party agency or company to do the job for you, you can opt to banner ads networks and platforms such as Bannerbit.com and others.
