What is CPA Marketing?
CPA stands for Cost Per Action.

With CPA offers they only need to complete a certain action like providing their email, signing up to try something for free, downloading an app, filling up a survey, etc.
CPA offers can be from any niche like fashion, technology, business opportunities, food and cooking, health, fitness, weight loss, finance, loans, entertainment, jobs, and many more.
