So you’ve signed up with a CPA content locking network. Perhaps you signed-up an hour ago, or perhaps last year. But, you’ve got no idea what do.
Well, you’ve come to the right article.
I’m going to take you through a loads of content locking ideas that you can exploit with CPA. I’ll update this list regularly, so bookmark it, and be sure to come back.
If you have any suggestions, feel free to share them in the comments at the bottom of the page.
1. Create YouTube tutorials
This is a great idea if you have a skill that you can teach. All you need is a screen recorder, a microphone and a YouTube account.
Teach people how to do things, then share a locked download. The download could be source code or a template. Something that they can use.
Tom knows his way around HTML, and has the skills required to make different types of web-pages. So, he makes the webpages on video, but, he also shares the source code. He locks the source code, and shares the files with his audience!
Use Camtasia screen recorder. It makes it easy to record great tutorials.
Everyone loves consuming video content on the internet. Why not start a site that has a bunch of viral videos?
These sites work best when users are forced to share the content to unlock it. Especially if the video thumbnail is something that looks particularly clickbait or shocking. It will attract more users to the site, and get more people unlocking.
3. Build a ‘downloader’ site
These sites let people download videos, photos and songs. They should be aimed at sites that don’t have downloads. For example, YouTube, SoundCloud and other social media.
People download YouTube videos for a number of reasons. They might want to slice up the video and put it in a compilation. Or, they might want to extract the music from it.
Think outside of the box. It’s not just YouTube that people want to download from. It’s not always the main content that people want to download.
4. Create an information product
Information products are still around. They’re easy create too. Jump into Word, and throw together a guide on how people can do something.
You don’t have charge anyone, you can offer your information product for free. The hard part is marketing it. With the right budget, you can promote your product with ads. Facebook ads are cheap.
But, if can’t afford ads, make YouTube videos on the topic. Or, start a blog and pull in leads through some free traffic sources.
5. Password-locked torrents
These is an age-old method. I remember when I first started doing CPA. This was one of the first methods I tried. And, it is still effective to this date.
You need to find some popular software. Once you’ve found it, compress it with a password protection. Then, lock a link to a password to unlock it. Put this link in a text file. With the locked software and password text, upload them to a torrent site. Then, you wait for the downloads.
There are plenty of free torrent sites you can exploit with this method.
Pro tip: This works better with larger files that people have to actually for to complete.
What is CPA content locking?
CPA content locking is a form of incentivised internet marketing. Publishers lock content, forcing users to complete CPA offer(s) in order to unlock the content. The CPA offers generate money for the publisher.
