In order to get approved at CPA or Cost per Action networks you need to take a look at their side of view.
They make their income for delivering results, so they don´t want to wast their time with unprofessional partners, don´t delivering results.
But in fact, it´s not hard to look like a professional in order to get approved at these networks, if you keep some important points in mind. By following these rules you increase you cances of approval dramatically.
1. Your Website
It´s important to have a professional looking website, it hasn´t to be a masterpiece of website, but you need to show you know what you do.
If you set up a new website, don´t forget to do keyword research and optimize your website for the search engines. If you have already a website, optimize it if nessecary and use it, this is the better option, of course. (So you got a website with a certain age, this looks even better.)
I recommend to use a WP-Blog as website, if you start a new one, be sure to have at least 15 Blog post posted. (less may work too, but more are better)
2. You need a Phone number
In most cases you need to enter a valid Phone number when signing up for a CPA network. Be sure to be reachable. Many CPA networks are interviewing their potential partners a few minutes. Again, they only want to be sure you are knowing what you do in internet marketing.
3. E-mail address
You need an valid e-mail adress in order to sign up. DONT use free email accounts here, it´s important to use your own domain e-mail adress. (I recommend to set up a new e-mail adress for CPA offers)
You can increase your chances if you got an e-mail list,, just add email-promotion or something similar to your marketing methods (mostly there will be a field to fill out when you sign up for CPA Networks)
