Yesterday I got an email about a new service called Affiliate Jump. The first thing that caught my interest was that Mike Filsaime is involved in it, second is because it does something I wished there was a service for before. It involves CPA.
CPA networks are big today. Not having to sell anything to make money is a great business model. You get your commission for your visitors simply registering for a free offer (or sometimes free trial offer). Many marketers are making a killing with CPA. The problem is though, the CPA networks set the entry bar so high that a beginner can forget about the whole CPA thing altogether. And that’s a shame, because it really is the easiest way to make money online, especially when you’re starting out.
I always wondered what if there was a service to set you up with a CPA network for a fee. That way even the folks that are just starting out could enjoy the benefits of CPA without them costing an arm and a leg to enter. After all, making commission without selling is exactly the thing a beginner would want to do to start out.
It’s no wonder then, that finally someone has done exactly this. Mike Filsaime and Joe Holland have created Affiliate Jump which removes the biggest obstacle in CPA completely – by joining Affiliate Jump for a fee, you get access to thousands of offers from different CPA networks and you don’t have to worry about any application whatsoever.
But it doesn’t end there. The service also includes some very convenient tools for your CPA marketing efforts:
- A website builder with hosting which allows you to create a website to promote CPA offers with a few clicks of a button. You can select the offers, select a website template, write some copy or use the default and you can start sending traffic to it. This is an awesome tool to test offers quickly.
- Widgets to add offers quickly to your existing sites.
- List building tool that’s integrated to the websites you build with Affiliate Jump along with offers you promote. That means using the traffic a lot more effectively than just sending it off to the offers.
- Training material.
All these tools and the fact that you skip dealing with CPA networks directly really sound good, especially for the novices.
My concern, though, is the control you lose over the convenience. You see, you don’t have to deal with the networks anymore, but that also means that Affiliate Jump will control all your relationships with the networks as well as your earnings. That also means should anything happen to Affiliate Jump or you account with the service, you’d lose all your CPA assets just like that. The easiest thing doesn’t always mean the best thing for you.
Also, there is the monthly fee involved, which means you better make CPA work for you, no messing around here. Considering that the beginners are the ones who will benefit from this service the most, it’s a bit of a responsibility on their shoulders.
Despite my concerns, I like it. I wanted to see such service to be created and there you have it. If you want to try CPA marketing but you can’t get accepted to any CPA network, Affiliate Jump is your solution.
