Let’s start with the basics, CPL, or Cost Per Lead, is a conversion model, where the advertiser pays for a qualified sign-up from a consumer/user interested in the offer. It is also commonly called online lead generation.

The main difference with a CPA and a CPL model, is that in CPL, the sign-up consists of a “lead”, which can be simply a user’s contact detail, such as an email address. This info is later used by the advertiser to try to sell his/her products to the consumer either through newsletters, email campaigns or phone calls.

CPL is a model that strikes a balance for publishers and advertisers risks. For that reason, CPL model offers usually produce a lower payout than CPA one. The publisher assumes a lower risk resulting in a lower payout and the advertiser assumes a larger risk by having to convert a user to a sale. For example, Media buyers, must create adequate ads targeted to the correct traffic sources so as to convert that user into a quality lead. Advertisers need to optimize their services and products in order to achieve a sale from those leads provided. The key is finding the traffic or angle that can provide a high volume of leads that convert.

Which traffic sources tend to work best with CPL?… Simple:

  • Email traffic: Email the CPL campaigns either to your own databases or to databases that you can buy. You can create your own email templates to convince the customers that they need a particular product before being directed to the offer.
  • Desktop traffic: Use mainly pops to open your own custom pre-lander or the advertiser’s.
  • Mobile WiFi traffic : CPL offers are a great way to convert your WiFi traffic, that can’t be monetized through carrier billing products.
