Introduction to CPAGrip
How much money can you make from CPAGrip?
As a general base mark, I usually tell people that putting in a 1-2 hours work to set-up your first campaign will easily turn over $50-100+ within a few days if done right.
Earnings will vary for everyone, but it’s a simple, scaleable process.
What is CPAGrip?
- CPAGrip is a CPA network.
- CPA networks generate leads for advertisers.
- They do this by finding publishers who want to make money (you and I).
- These publishers then push traffic to CPA Offers.
- This can be done in a few clever ways:
- direct linking to offers,
- content locking, file locking (what we’re focusing on)…
How do you make money with CPAGrip?
The money comes from advertisers, people looking to promote their sites and products. CPAGrip then distributes this money to publishers (you), and you promote the offers.
This guide will teach you how to promote the offers through file locking. You will find downloadable content, lock it, and then promote it on YouTube. There are a bunch of tips and tricks involved as well.
If you haven’t understood yet: you get paid every time someone completes an offer to download this content that you’re giving away.

If you want to start making money with CPAGrip, you’ll need to sign up…
The process is pretty easy, but I’m pretty sure they have a verification period. Which is fine, it’ll give you time to get your content together!
Finding content you can lock
You can promote anything, but generally downloadable goods are the best to go for. Things like graphics templates, eBook guides, music production samples and various other similar things are in high demand.
Without content, you’ll struggle to make money with CPAGrip. You need something to offer people in return for unlocking your CPAGrip lockers.
You can share direct offer links, but CPAGrip offers a multitude of file locking and content locking options which, you guessed it, require content.
Generating ideas for lockable content
Here’s a hypothetical example of a way you can promote your CPAGrip locked content.
You’ve decided to promote samples used in my music production. Different sounds, drums, and synths.
Instead of promoting a single sound–which, actually probably could do–make your “product” more attractive by packaging these sounds into the “hottest rap drums 2019” download.
This can be promoted on various platforms, but the best place in my opinion to promote this would be on YouTube, where you can demonstrate the sounds in a video without giving them away.
Upload your files to a file-host
Once you’ve got some downloadable content to promote, you need to upload them to a file host.
You can use a multitude of different sites, but the best one is probably Google drive. You have control over the file, and your users aren’t going to run into any difficulties downloading.
You could double down here, and upload them to a “pay per download” site, like ShareCash, but you’ll really piss off your users.
Locking your content
CPAGrip file locker guide
Go into your CPAGrip dashboard, monetization, and URL/file lockers. From here, you can paste in the download link and edit the template for your file lockers.
Choose one that looks nice, and make your locker look as professional and as easy to use as possible.
Some lockers even allow you to drop in a few fake comments, which will increase your conversion rate. People like to read other people’s feedback.
Promoting CPAGrip on YouTube
Now that you’ve got your file locker link ready, you need to make a video.
Make a basic video
I would strongly advise using Camtasia, it’s a screen recorder, but also an incredibly easy to use video editor.
You can whip up high-quality videos in minutes, and upload them directly to YouTube, Vimeo, Google, Dailymotion, and all the other options you could ever require.
Upload Your Video To YouTube
Once your video is done, get it on YouTube!
Make sure that your upload is high quality, people don’t like low-quality videos, nor does YouTube’s ranking algorithm.
By quality, I mean the resolution of the video, make sure it’s at least 720p. Anything higher is better.
Use SEO to get more views (tough)
Make sure you write a good title and description. Aim for at least 2-3 paragraphs in your description.
Make sure you put your locked link in the video description.
Create a clickbait thumbnail for your video
Aside from making a nice title and description, one of the main things that will make people click on your video is the thumbnail image.
The more click-bait, the better.
Boost your views and likes, so people download your content (social proof)
When you first upload, you’re going to have 0 views, 0 likes, and 0 comments.
And, because of this, no one will download your content.
At this point, you need to boost your video with some views, likes and comments.
You can buy all of this stuff really cheap at SEOClerks.
You’ll be surprised how cheap it is to boost your videos, which is great for your return on investment.
SEOClerks is a market place for buying and selling things like views, likes, followers, and shares, and the vendors there provide really good services at very low prices.
Remember, no one will complete your file locker without social proof. So fake it until you make it.
Repeat the whole process again
You can either make more videos on similar topics or try out a new niche! The more you practice, the more money you will make and the better you’ll become at it.
Until next time, Josh.
