How to get Approved By an Affiliate Marketing Network

Hi everyone,

I got some awesome feedback from my last post and I am happy I could help quite a number of people. If you haven't read my last post, I would advise that you do, so as to easy relate to this post I am about to write. You can check it out HERE.

Now, one of my readers got back to me saying that they were required to be already approved on an affiliate network before they can sign up for the training. So, I would go into a bit of detail of what I mean by affiliate network before I teach you how to get approved.

An affiliate network is simply the middle man that links an affiliate (the you want to be) to a merchant (the seller of a product or service). The affiliate network is usually in form of a website or portal, where you get to choose the offers you want to market, get custom marketing links, get materials that can be used for marketing and the affiliate network is also responsible for paying you for your marketing services.

Just like I mentioned in my previous post, you can get full training on how to market offers and start your affiliate business after you have done your online training.

Now that we have an idea of what an affiliate network is, I would proceed to teaching you the easiest way to get approved by a CPA network. I would be using the CPA network, BountyCPA as a point of reference for others, as there are so many networks.

The link to join the BountyCPA is here but before you start filling your application form, please read this post to the end.

When you click on the affiliate application link, you would first see something like the image below.

Please, please and please, be very honest with your answers. It would be very necessary for your payout later when you have been approved by the network. So if you are in Nigeria, put in Nigeria as your location, it would not disqualify you in any way and this applies to every other country. 

I applied from Nigeria and I got approved. Make sure you apply with your real name or company name, real address, real phone number (because some networks may decide to call you) and just apply with honesty.

Another important thing is that you MUST NOT apply with yahoo mail. If you do not have another email address, this may be the perfect time to open one. 

Gmail, hotmail must preferably a personalized email address like  

Now this aspect of the application in the picture below:

Where it says, "Additional Questions"

It first asks if you have any experience with online marketing, if you do not have, its okay to say No, it does not disqualify you. But if you have experience, even if it's just running a facebook advert, please say Yes.

It then asks you to explain how you intend to promote the offers, I am going to put a list below but please DO NOT copy everything. You can pick one or two methods but don't copy all. My personal advice, do a bit more research and spice up my list, nothing too fancy though.

Ok so the list of ways to promote the offers:

  • Bing PPC
  • Google Adwords/PPC
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Content Marketing
  • Banner Ads
  • Yahoo PPC
  • Google Adsense
  • Email Marketing and others that you can do some more research on. 
Please remember, DO NOT copy and paste all the methods of promotion, choose two or three, and you would be good to go!

Then the last question about your website or blog address, if you have a blog or website, you can put in the details. If you have none, you can simply say you are working on it. Better still, open up a blog with wordpress or blogger or set up a website. 

You can use this amazing website host to buy your own domain name ( and set up your website. Click here to get your custom domain name.

Remember, these networks are looking out for people who are honest, reliable and have integrity. Also, it can take between 3days to 2 weeks before they approve you, so please be patient.
