Many times some of my blogging friends will sponsor contests. Usually legitimate ones. I try not to associate with the riff-raff of the internet.
My good friend and uber affiliate Nicky Cakes is giving away a 40-inch 1080p HDTV that he won as a result of being the top CPA affiliate for CX Media.
CX Media is a cost per action (CPA) company that pays affiliates like me to publish advertising on our websites. Similar to advertisers paying a newspaper to run ads, we get paid when we bring traffic and actions to our advertisers.
"Let’s say that Coca-Cola wants to sell more Coke. They already have their own ad campaigns running on TV, and possibly the internet. But, they want to sell more. So Coca-Cola sets up a program where anyone who so desires can make their own advertisements for coke products which link to the coke website. For every case of coke sold through one of these links, Coke agrees to pay the “affiliate” $1 commission. "
However, usually the payouts per ad can range from $1 up to $130 per sale. CPA networks can be pretty lucrative if you learn how to generate the traffic that will get the folks to your site.
You must be able to update and add simple HTML code your blog or site. It's pretty simple, even though it may sound difficult.
CPA networks pay my bills every month and allow me to enjoy a carefree lifestyle--and most of all, thanks to God, it is recession proof!
So on behalf of Nicky Cakes, I'd like to invite you win this wonderful flat screen TV he is giving away. The contest ends May 15th at midnight EST--so hurry and enter, you've only got 8 days left!
