CPA firms and where to look? dcraigdc msg:525333 5:53 pm on Feb 24, 2006 (gmt 0) I am scouting the internet for UK based CPA schemes without much luck.
I'm looking more for FIRMS that are able to offer this service rather than your general affiliate networks.
Am I looking in the wrong place? Does anybody know what I should be searching for?
Even better does anybody know of any firms who offer this or any networks that they have had good experiences with?

What kind of firms?
Offering what service? A directory of merchants with independent affiliate programs?

Online marketing firms that offer a cost per aquisition scheme rather than the normal CPC strategy.
We have a form on our website that a user must fill out to get a quote from a recommended supplier (of services) in certain geographic areas.
We would be looking to pay a percentage each time somebody fills out that form and submits it.

Okay. That's a type of Cost per Action usually described as Pay-per-Lead. sbskater10 msg:525337 9:14 pm on Feb 25, 2006 (gmt 0)
In many cases you will deal with advertising agencies (as opposed to affiliate networks). Alot of times the big companies channel their leads through ad agencies to reduce the work load.
That isn't always the case, lots of times the company will have an affiliate manager, but depending on which company you are trying to do business with, it may be very hard to even find out the contact information.
What you are looking for isn't exactly the easiest thing to search for, I had to do something similar for a site much like yours (the arbitrage of leads) and you have to dig a while for each merchant.

Hmm much as I expected, although I feel quite stupid for overlooking 'Cost per Lead' especially as that is how we charge our own clients!
