What are CPA Networks?

A CPA (Cost Per Acquisition) Network is an advertising company which pays publishers for generating actions on its brand partners’ websites, such as requesting goods or services, filling out forms, or downloading apps. In this model, the publisher serves as the advertiser’s affiliate marketer.

Although there are several payment models like CPL (Cost Per Lead) or Revenue Share, CPA has turned into a household name by dominating in 99% of the cases according to IAB. The reason affiliates may choose to work via a CPA Network rather than directly approaching a brand lies in efficiency and scalability. According to Rakuten, more than 80% of brands work with affiliates, so working directly with a brand is an option; however, it may be better from an ROI perspective to split-test several products simultaneously before focusing on the one that’s the most lucrative.


Picking a CPA Affiliate Network

It’s often more efficient to work with a company, or CPA Network, that has already done the heavy lifting by aggregating required products and offers for affiliates under one roof. This approach reduces time spent on business development and allows affiliates to focus on what they specialize in – buying traffic and tracking profits.

There are numerous CPA Networks available, each with its distinctive advantages: some have years of industry experience, some have multiple exclusive offers, and some have the most convenient payment terms and methods; the list is arguably endless, and it’s up to the affiliate to decide which factor is the most crucial to their success.

Perform [cb] (formerly Clickbooth)

Started in 2002 as a health-specific CPA-Network, Clickbooth went through an acquisition a little over a decade later, consequently becoming Perform [cb], one of the most popular destinations for affiliates looking for e-commerce, health, and home improvement offers.

Home improvement lead generation is a popular vertical on Taboola for two reasons: the type of customer intent and their demography. Leaving email details requires less customer input vs. making a purchase, so the cost per lead can be cheap; additionally, home improvement typically includes offers such as solar panels, which in most cases would require the customer to own the property to have the solar panels installed. Even though the cost of solar panels might be surprising, only certain age groups opt for them, primarily Millennials and Gen X. Native advertising is perfect for these audiences..
