Step 3: Test
Once you select CPA offer you should drive traffic to your CPA offer. This is done to test your CPA offer.
Basically, what testing means is that you spend little advertisement budget and effort to test the profitability of CPA offer and marketing technique you use.
You just test, track and optimize until you find a winning formula.
That is, you have to test every thing until you come up with optimum result — the winning formula.

Step 4: Scale
After you test your campaign using fast traffic generation source like PPC marketing, you need to scale it to other traffic sources.
The good news is that there are lots of ways to promote CPA offers on the Internet.
You will have two options to drive targeted traffic to your CPA offers: Paid and Free.

Paid Options
As it has been noted earlier driving traffic is the life blood idea of any successful CPA marketing campaign.
If you do not have traffic, even with the most profitable offer selection, it is meaning less.
There fore, you have to go where massive targeted traffic exists and capture it.
There are lots of paid ways that can get you traffic.
Some of them are:

1. PPC Search Engines – Targeted Traffic Source

2. PPV networks – Targeted Traffic Source

3. Other traffic sources such as MySpace, YouTube, Facebook advertisements.
4. Buying ad space from related forums

Using the above paid traffic generation sources you can get a huge number of visitors to your CPA offers. But, there are important points that you need to be aware of when using PAID advertisement option.
That is …
Every time you use any paid advertisement option, start with a small budget – test, track and optimize until you come up with a wining formula. Then after, you massively scale it based on your wining formula.

Ok, now let’s see the free options.
There are lots of free ways you can make money using CPA offers.
Some of them are:
* Video marketing

* Articles Marketing

* Yahoo Answers

* Classified Ads, etc.

Step 5: Rinse and Repeat
Once you create a successful CPA marketing campaign, move to another offer and repeat the process again and again.
