What is CPA Build?
CPA Build is a CPA (Cost per action) network that lets you lock your content behind offer walls- when an offer is completed you’ll get paid real money. CPA Build pays anywhere from $1.00 – $20.00+ USD per offer completion (aka lead), depending on where they live. In order for the visitor to unlock your content they will have to fill out a short survey (or another action) with their personal information. You can monetize both mobile and desktop traffic. They also have a large variety of other monetization tools and features to help maximize conversions and profit. If you’re interested, Sign Up Here.
CPA Build Features
The content locker is simply the offer wall / locker that appears when a user tries to access your content. You can customize pretty much everything you want, even the css and HTML. There’s a nice short video guide available to help with building custom templates and lockers. There are basic/sample lockers that you may use or other people may make their custom lockers public for anyone to use. To view an example, click Here.
This is a very nice feature that allows users to share their creations, from content lockers to their templates. Once they’re made “Public” and approved by staff anyone can use them and make money. The best part is the original creator of the template also gets a commission every time a user earns money with their template/locker. So if you can make a decent template, you can generate passive income as people use your templates!
“Deploying” your landing pages or lockers to your site is made very simple with their deployment package. You simply download it and extract it where you want to, then all of your lockers and pages that you create can easily be accessed from your site. No need to edit any of your html every time you make a new locker! You can even edit the lockers and have the changes propagate your site without changing any code. They have a very nice tutorial on the deployment page as well.
When deploying content lockers and landing pages on your own website, the URL generated by CPA Build looks very unprofessional. To fix this, you can make a private URL which will only work on your website. It change a link from “www.website.com/lockers/59f87g” to “www.website.com/lockers/watch-wonder-woman”.
Monthly contests and events that are easy to enter and complete give users a little bonus in earnings.
CPA Build gives its users access to all of the statistics they’ll ever need in order to maximize profits, target your audience effectively and to stay at the top of your niche. You can view everything from country breakdown, devices, locker reports and more.
Receive 5% commission on all referral’s earnings for life. You may even create a referral team and help each other out. CPA Build even gives you some referral banners to use on your blogs/pages.

- (Optional, but recommended in most cases) Making a website can be tricky for beginners and can cost some money if you buy hosting and a domain name. However, there are free website builders / hosting that make things easier such as: Blogger, Weebly and Webs to name a few.
Choosing Your Niche
A niche is just a subject or area where one’s skills are best suited for. This is critical if you want to succeed on any CPA network. Imagine you are one of the best programmers in the industry and decide you want to make some extra money with a CPA network. People are more likely to complete a survey to download your programming files/tutorials than if you were just some random beginner. Now this doesn’t mean if you don’t have specialty skills like in the example that you can’t succeed on a CPA network, it means you’ll just have to spend more time finding and perfecting your niche.
When looking for a Niche, it is important to pick something that people actively search for and want. You can use free tools like Google’s Keyword Planner Tool to find out if our niche is in demand. The more popular your niche, the more competition you’re likely to have and the harder it will be to get your site ranked well by search engines.
- Writing eBooks about various subjects (game guides, tutorials, how-to’s, etc).
- Creating & uploading your own software.
- Cheat codes, guides or tutorials for popular video games.
- Making your own apps for mobile devices.
- Locking password downloads.
Promoting Your Content
There are many ways to go about promoting your content and driving viewers to your websites and download links. It is important to know your target audience and how you’re going to reach them. The most popular ways of getting your links out there are: Video Sharing Sites (YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion etc), Forums, Torrents and Social Media.
Once you know how you’re going to reach them, it’s time to set up how you’re going to get them to even consider downloading your content – especially if it’s locked behind a offer wall. My recommendation here is to set up a website of some kind, it can be a free website / blog such as blogger or weebly. Make it look as professional as you can and create some pages for your content. If it looks like you’ve put more effort into it, users will be much more likely to complete a survey for your content.
