For public sector agencies, social marketing is often used as a way to encourage people to follow rules and regulations, and practice general safe behaviors. For example, police departments campaign with slogans such as “Buckle up for life” and “Click it or ticket” to encourage people to wear their seat belts—showing either the positive rewards for this action (saving lives) or the negative consequences for ignoring the law (getting a traffic ticket).
Before you design your campaign, to figure out what obstacles stand in the way of your audience performing your desired behavior (“price”), you’ll need to do some thorough research. Survey your audience online, on the phone, or in print. Keep in mind that it may take several surveys and conversations to accurately find the “price.” After all, as you talk to more people, you’ll have a better idea of the most common obstacles.
In the CPA payment method, payment is given for leads. Usually, an amount for each lead varies. Depending on the offer, you can expect from $1 to $6 per lead. For a single email capture, most of the CPA companies pay in between $4 to $25. In other competitive markets such as insurance market, for life cover offers, you will get $22 per lead. If there is a multi-part process to be completed, you can expect to get paid up to $150. The payout in CPA marketing depends on how complicated the action to be performed is.
In setting the price, particularly for a physical product, such as contraceptives, there are many issues to consider. If the product is priced too low, or provided free of charge, the consumer may perceive it as being low in quality. On the other hand, if the price is too high, some will not be able to afford it. Social marketers must balance these considerations, and often end up charging at least a nominal fee to increase perceptions of quality and to confer a sense of "dignity" to the transaction. These perceptions of costs and benefits can be determined through research, and used in positioning the product.
Now the question arises, how to get accepted into a CPA network? Unfortunately, getting approved for the CPA networks is not as easy as getting received in regular affiliate marketing networks. Honesty is a pretty important part of the application. They usually review applications manually, and if you can’t satisfy them by providing necessary information, they will reject it. Remember that CPA networks aren’t trying to make things difficult. They want to make sure that you are honest and will send them real leads. So it’s a matter of being transparent with them.
