    This is crazy.

    I'm promoting a weight loss product of very high gravity. What I've been experiencing is very interesting, well let's check out some numbers first(these are from exact same traffic source):

    July 1 to 30: 4,666 hops -> 109 order form impressions -> 9 order form server calls(submits) -> 4 sales(1 refund)

    August 1 to Today: 13,108 hops -> 190 order form impressions -> 15 order form server calls(submits) -> 1 sale

    The numbers just don't make sense to me. 15 order form server calls and only 1 sale? I don't think there's much people interested into clicking order submit button just for fun.

    Anybody has same experience recently?

    How strong is the ad copy and how targeted is the traffic? Expired Domains, Adwords, PPV, Generic PPC, Quality PPC, email buys, media buys, spam?

    Junk traffic dude as one sale from 15 form submits means fraud purchases that get blocked by CB.

    Sounds about right to me for Clickbank, a complete waste of time. I spent months getting one sale which was refunded and then when I finally got a sale to stick some years later, I realized I had to get another 4 sales untill they would release my whopping $60. WOW.

    If you're going to promote Clickbank products, focus con TARGERET traffic. Meaning... People who're looking for the REVIEW of the product.

    Those are the ONLY kind of people that buy CB products. Don't focus on cold traffic (at least you have fun seeing lots of clicks and no sales)

    Targeted or not, I just don't think there should be this much difference on the exact same type of traffic. In the first period of time, 4,666 hops -> 4 sales(1 refund though), but in the second period of time, 13,108 hops -> 1 sale. I just don't want to believe "luck" is the reason for this. By the way the traffic is from social network, I guess I will try other different type of traffic before I lose my patience in clickbank.

    yes, you are right, and with 13k hops you have to make some more sales

    And by the way, is there any better way to monetize these kind of traffic except adsense or CPA network?
