For some reason people are led to believe that CPA networks are the end-all be-all for affiliate offers. That you somehow become “pro” for being a CPA affiliate.
Yes, CPA networks are nice since there are many high converting offers, but there are also a pretty limited choice in stuff to promote. Not to mention most every CPA network has the same exact offers as others. For the most part you are stuck with like 5 or 6 verticals. And not to mention how often offers go up/down.
This post is just to remind you that there are MANY sources for awesome offers (that are easy to profit with!) at places like CJ.com, Linkshare.com, Shareasale.com, Tradedoubler.com (good for Euro offers), Clickbank.com, RevenueWire.com (software) and all the in house affiliate programs out there. Shit, even the Google Affiliate Network 😀
If you’re struggling to make it, consider using some of these networks to find unique offers in smaller more forgiving niches. You can still make huge bank in a niche that isn’t weight loss.
