online overnight, blogging won't do it for you. You can't start a blog today and expect to cash out from the same blog the same day. To make $1000 per month from your blog, you need to build a reputable niche blog, you need tons of traffic, you need an optimised blog, you need time and patience. In some cases, if you are from African countries or other regions different from America, UK, Canada and Australia, you will have to wait for two months or even six months if your blog is a new blog before your blog will be approved for Google Adsense. But there are many bloggers who have published that their blogs make more than $1000 every month, blogs like Problogger, Incomediary, Shoutmeloud, Smartpassiveincome and lindaikejisblog among several others. You can draw inspiration from these millionaire bloggers and build your own blog. With patience you can also reach the top and become a millionaire blogger yourself.

CPA stands for Cost per action. Affiliate marketing is simply an online business where you recommend and promote a product made by someone and when someone buys the product you promoted via your affiliate link, you will be paid a commission for your effort. It is a pretty good business, considering the fact that you don't have to own a product or website to do this business. All you need is a smartphone or laptop and Internet connection. When it comes to affiliate marketing, the best is CPA Affiliate Marketing because here you don't need your lead to buy anything, all you need is to drive a lead to the product and you will be paid when they sign up with their email address or download the app into their mobile phone
