CPA Marketing Network Targeted For Bloggers Launched
July 14, 2006 by Gaman
Jim Kukral recently launched BlogKits, a CPA (cost per action) network targeted specifically for bloggers.
The program will be officially opened in late summer/early fall 2006 and currently accepting application.
The aim of the program is to help bloggers make money by supplementing their AdSense income with CPA offers from selected merchants such as Peapod.com. Care One Credit, Peter Leeds, Winesource, and Gadgetstuff. BlogKits is not one of those “pay for posting” programs.
I don’t know if CPA ad network for bloggers would take off but I am incline to believe that such network will have harder time to compete with existing affiliate networks such as CJ.com and Linkshare.com for audience.
I think the problem with CPA network for bloggers is that a blog is not the most suitable platform to promote CPA ads to start with. People visit blog to read and learn stuff and simply adding links to some CPA offers on the sidebar will result in terrible conversion rates as they will be seen as mere advertisements.
CPA ads would convert well if they are placed in context inside a post. But how many times you could write about a product in your posts without annoying your readers?
