CPA marketing vs Affiliate marketing
At present affiliate marketing has been very popular way to make money through online. Besides, affiliate marketing strategy enables the affiliates to bring both parties like advertisers and customers on the same virtual platform. As a result here customers can get products or services at low price compared to traditional marketing strategy. Here three parties (advertisers, affiliates and customers) enjoy win win situation. And all parties are benefited and satisfied here.
For example- here advertisers are benefited as they get more customers by the help of affiliates and customers are benefited since they are getting several offers of products or services and the affiliates are also benefited & satisfied, because they (affiliates) are making money by bringing merchants(advertisers) and customer(visitors) on the same virtual platform. In CPA marketing strategies these three parties are also benefited and satisfied in the same way.
And due to this latest internet based marketing strategy, the conventional marketing strategy is on the way to be demolished in the near future.
CPA marketing is comparatively cheap as payment only to be made when a specific action is completed by a prospective customer.

In general various types of ways of earning based on promotional packages are offered to affiliates by the producers or companies to help their marketing strategies. CPA marketing is considered like Affiliate Marketing as beneficial for three parties, such as- advertisers (merchants), affiliates (Publishers) and customers. For example- In CPA marketing advertisers get benefit, because they get more customers by the effort of affiliates and customers are benefited as they are getting various offers of virtual products or services and the affiliates are also benefited since they (affiliates) are able to earning money by bringing advertisers and traffics on the same virtual platform.
By reading the above discussion, it is noticed that the features of CPA Marketing and Affiliate Marketing are almost same but the differences those are noticed have been mentioned below:
In affiliate marketing, Affiliate marketers have to sell something to get commission which is little bit difficult but not impossible.
On the other hand
In CPA marketing, Affiliate marketers don’t have to sell anything. I mean that selling is not mandatory here. As an affiliate marketer that you have to do is just you have to create a blog site or website for your business and post some your niche relevant contents and then- when the visitors will come to your blog and click on your affiliate links (those you got from different CPA networks) then they (visitors) will be sent to advertisers’ website instantly automatically where they (visitors) will be asked to complete some specific actions. After completion of the each specific action you will be paid instantly by the advertisers. Since in CPA marketing selling is not mandatory and just customers to be sent to advertisers’ website through affiliate link, it (CPA marketing) seems to be a bit easier procedure then Affiliate marketing. Actually driving customers to the advertisers’ website is easier than selling something to somebody.
In the light of above discussion, I think it has been now clear to you that on which marketing strategies you should give importance. In this regard my suggestion is – in order to earn money as a beginner you should give importance on CPA Marketing which is a bit easier than Affiliate Marketing.
