How to find more pay per lead affiliate programs?
There’s more pay per lead affiliate programs that pay well. You’ll hardly find them using Google search. You’ll find just a few of the programs listed above.
Fortunately, we can use affiliate networks to find them.
Method 1: Look for PPL programs in affiliate networks with search filter
I’ll take ShareASale as example.
You can list 25 pay per lead affiliate programs as a guest on that page. But if you sign-in (or signup), you can go to merchants > search for merchants > pay per lead.
There are 297+ affiliate programs that pay per lead there.
Do the same thing with other affiliate networks to find more PPL affiliate programs.. FlexOffers is one I high recommend.
Method 2: Dig into CPA affiliate network methods
The beauty of CPA affiliate networks is that most programs pay per lead. It can be a sale but mostly, they pay per free signup, email submit, etc…
I’ll take Peerfly as example
When you signup, on the left side, choose offers. Click on ‘advanced search’. You can filter by category to find the ones within your blogging niche.
You can earn money while your referrals do not invest money yet. Most programs pay you a percentage of generated sales after your lead commission.
So, I hope those programs will help you increase your affiliate commissions.
