CPA is one way you can earn money without actually having to sell a single thing. Yes, you did read that correctly – you can make money online without having to make a single sale.
CPA or Cost Per Action is an advertising platform that allows companies to pay a commission when certain actions are carried out which do not always have to be sales. While CPA is a great way for advertisers to make sales it is also a brilliant method to generate leads.
The fact that they pay only per action means that advertisers can pay a much higher commission per unit than is possible with other advertising platforms like pay per click.
For example, where you can only expect to earn anywhere from a few cents per click to possibly a few dollars, if you are extremely lucky with Adwords for example, CPA commissions can easily net you anywhere from $1 to even $150 per action, depending on the action and the promotion. Therefore, if a single person signs up per day for an offer you are promoting and the offer pays out $40 per action, you can make over $1,000 per month. Compare that to trying to make the same amount of money with PPC. You would need, in most cases, more than 100 clicks per day to even come close to the same figures.
