Welcome to the World of CPA Affiliate Marketing: Generating $1K/Day via Facebook, TikTok and YouTube Ads

Hello, all!

My name’s Nick, I’m a 35-year-old digital marketer who’s been tinkering with online marketing strategies for the better part of the last decade. Today, I want to pull back the curtain on a marketing technique that can potentially earn you a steady income of $1K/day – that’s right, every single day – with the right strategy and execution.

I’m talking about Cost Per Action (CPA) affiliate marketing through online advertising channels like Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube. If you’re new to this, don’t worry – we’ll go step by step.

Step 1: Understanding CPA Marketing

Before we dive into the specifics, let’s make sure we’re on the same page. CPA marketing is an online advertising model where advertisers pay for a specific “action” tied to their ad, like a sale, click, or form submit. It differs from traditional affiliate marketing when you’re paid for every sale. Instead, you’re paid every time a user takes action on your promoted link.

Step 2: Choose a Reputable CPA Network

The next step is to find a reputable CPA network to join. These networks serve as a bridge between you (the affiliate) and advertisers. I’ve found success with networks like MaxBounty, Clickbooth, and PeerFly. Check them out and choose one that suits your needs. Remember to read their terms and conditions before joining.

Step 3: Pick the Right Offers

After joining a CPA network, you need to pick the right offers to promote. Consider your niche and the interests of your potential audience. Make sure to choose high-converting offers with a good payout. These details are usually available on your CPA network’s dashboard.

Step 4: Setup Your Website or Landing Page

While some affiliates directly link their ads to the offers, I recommend setting up a website or a landing page. It allows you to collect emails, retarget visitors, and provide additional value. You can use platforms like WordPress or ClickFunnels to create a professional-looking site.

Step 5: Plan Your Advertising Strategy

Now, we’re getting into the exciting part: planning your advertising strategy on Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube.

Facebook Ads

  1. Facebook Pixel: Start by setting up your Facebook Pixel on your website. It’ll help you track conversions and retarget your visitors.
  2. Business Manager and Ad Account: Next, set up a Business Manager and an Ad Account on Facebook. This is where you’ll manage your ads.
  3. Ad Creation: Use Facebook’s Ads Manager to create your ads. Use compelling images, catchy headlines, and engaging ad text. Make sure to have a strong call-to-action.
  4. Targeting: Here’s where you define who sees your ad. Choose your audience based on their interests, behaviors, and demographics that align with your offer.
  5. Budgeting and Scheduling: Decide on a daily or lifetime budget. I recommend starting small and scaling up as you see results.
  6. Launch and Monitor: Launch your ad and monitor its performance using Facebook’s analytics. Adjust as needed.

TikTok Ads

  1. TikTok Ads Manager: Set up an account on TikTok Ads Manager.
  2. Campaign Creation: Create a new campaign, select your objective (Traffic, Conversions, or App install), and set your budget.
  3. Ad Group: Next, you’ll create your ad group. Here, you’ll choose your audience, placements, and scheduling.
  4. Creative: TikTok provides a Video Creation (edited) Kit to help you create compelling video content for your ads. Make sure your ad stands out and is attention-grabbing
  5. Ad Launch: After reviewing your ad, launch it and monitor its performance through TikTok’s analytic tools.

YouTube Ads

  1. Google Ads Account: To start with YouTube ads, you need a Google Ads account.
  2. New Campaign: Create a new campaign, and choose the ‘Video’ campaign type.
  3. Objective and Budget: Next, choose your objective (Leads, Website traffic, Product and brand consideration, Brand awareness and reach) and set your budget.
  4. Ad Group and Targeting: Create your ad group and set your targeting based on demographics, interests, and behaviors.
  5. Ad Creation: Here, you’ll upload your ad video. YouTube supports several ad formats, including skippable in-stream ads, non-skippable in-stream ads, and video discovery ads.
  6. Ad Launch: Finally, review and launch your ad. Monitor your campaign performance with Google Ads analytics.

Step 6: Testing, Optimization, and Scaling

This is perhaps the most crucial step in your CPA marketing journey. Once your ads are live, you need to keep a close eye on their performance. Look at the conversion rates, click-through rates, cost per click, and ROI.

Optimize your ads based on the data. This may include tweaking the ad copy, changing the ad image or video, adjusting the targeting, or increasing/decreasing the ad spend.

Once you find a winning ad, scale it up. This means increasing the ad spend to reach a larger audience and generate more conversions.


CPA affiliate marketing through Facebook, TikTok, and YouTube ads offers a promising route to making $1K/day, but it’s not a get-rich-quick scheme. It requires a thoughtful strategy, careful execution, and continuous optimization.

As a 35-year-old seasoned marketer, I can tell you that it takes patience, learning, and testing to succeed. But once you hit the sweet spot, the rewards can be substantial. So go ahead, roll up your sleeves, and dive into the exciting world of CPA marketing.

Remember, success in CPA marketing, like any other business, doesn’t come overnight. Stay persistent, and the results will follow.

Happy marketing!
