I first heard about CPAlead when my friend mentioned it to me last year. He was so excited about his earnings and he convinced me to try it. So, I applied for an account immediately.
However, during that time, an account is reviewed for a couple of days. I did not receive any approval or denial of my application. My excitement went down and forgot about it until 3 days ago.
Three days ago, my other friend, Gabe got interested on CPAlead after reading about it on Facebook. She immediately applied for an account and got approved instantly! She asked me for help understanding it. How do we create the widgets? How do we add it on our blogs? She gave me her account credentials and let me do the job of installing the code.
I installed the code on her blog and on some posts on this blog. Those post under Premium Post category on this blog are the only posts with the CPAlead code on it. And guess what happened? How much did we earn?
For the full 24 hours yesterday:
She earned $20+ from her blog alone. (Mine is obviously around $10). Considering that she only earns an average of $3/day on Google Adsense on her blog, that’s a big improvement! Now, she’s more motivated in blogging. :)
Ok. Enough of the testimonial. Let’s talk about CPAlead and why my her blog earned that much on her first 24 hours.
What is CPAlead?
CPAlead is a cost-per-action ad network, where you get paid when your visitor completed an action, on this case, filling up a survey. Each completed survey costs between $0.20 to $10.00. What makes it different from other ad network is that it forces your visitors to complete the survey, otherwise, they will not be able to access your content. It blocks your visitor from reading your post / accessing your content unless he finished asurvey. Surveys are targeted for each country. There are surveys for US, UK, Canada and many more.
What if there’s no survey available for my country?
If there’s no available survey for your visitor’s country, you have a choice to just let them in or to block them completely. In our case, I just let them in so that they can read the posts and gain access to my other ad networks’ advertisements such as Chitika, Infolinks and Adsense.
What kind of sites works well with CPALead?
CPAlead works best for website with quality content where visitors would be motivated to fill up the survey just to access your content. In my wife’s case, she blogs about Facebook cheats most of the time. Since many people are addicted playing Farmville, Cafe World, Fishville, etc., they are very much motivated to complete the survey just to read the cheats she blogged about. According to some CPAlead veterans who earn as much as $1000/day, TV sites and movie sites convert very well. That is, visitors must fill up thesurvey to watch the movie or TV episodes.
Is it allowed to use both CPAlead and Adsense on the same page?
According to CPAlead FAQ, it works well with Adsense. But your Adsense CTR and earnings will be affected. Since your visitors are blocked first until they answer asurvey, the chance of your Adsense ads getting clicked is very low. That’s why I only used it on some of my posts and not sitewide.
They pay via check, wire transfer if you are in the US, and via Paypal.
If you have a blog or website with quality content, where your visitors will not mind filling up a survey just to access your content, this is for you. I think, this will also convert well on flash game sites, tutorial sites and download sites. Try it. Sign-up here!
