    I've got a YouTube channel about funny videos the videos
    are watermarked for a ipad offer which is not converting.

    The channel has had a total of 160,000 views and I've only
    gotten two conversions here's the channel

    Which type of offer do you guys think will convert better than
    a ipad offer I'm thinking of a vacation offer.

    Here's the YouTube channel it's about funny videos.

    YouTube - ‪videobloopers1's Channel‬‏

    I personally think it's because of the offer not matching the
    type of viewers & no call to action to click on the offer.

    What would be a better wording for the offer to get them to click
    I'm not the best copywriter & need help in this area

    My most of my demographics are Female 13-17 Male 35-54

    'learn' how to win?

    Men do not like to learn! lol .. that may be a reason they arent checking it out! I would change it to something more demanding like 'WIN an apple ipad' or 'Get your free apple ipat at xxxxx'

    In the description i mean! The video watermarks look fine, but its just not very targeted! I bet the people watching those video will have seen hundreds of similar watermarked videos, so try to promote something you don't see much on YT. A vacation offer like you said!

    it's your call to action man.. it's weak.. improve your CTA and your conversion will drastically increase.

    need to tell the viewer exactly what you want them to do otherwise they'll just go onto watching the next video without taking the required action.

    Can anyone give a example for a good call to action that you've found
    that works for a iPad offer.

    A couple of months ago I ran an iPad campaign on youtube. I described the iPad they were going to receive, then I would put "Get a FREE iPad, You have nothing to lose, give it a shot." I converted over 500 of these in a month.(before youtube started banning accounts like crazy)

    I have the same problem with all of my YT CPA offers. Cell/mobile phones, free gifts, including ps3 nintendo360 Flat screen TVs 3d online gambling +++++ and on it goes. I even had one for free complimentary condoms to celebreate the recent UK royal wediing. Zilch I get CT from overlays but not one purchase. I also do vacation offers adult webcam (that was getting 1000+ hits a day until YT closed it.
    I am sick of YT and how they just remove a video (T&C TOS) whatever without ever giving the real option of an appeal. Death row inmates get a better hearing F*** YT

    Your call to action may suck but still...

    It works out just over 0.001% conversion rate. That's not good at all!

    What is the average conversion for everyone else that uploads vids? 1%? 0.1%?

    conversion stayed about the same.

    Well looking at your video...
    it looks like that traffic to your channel isn't best match
    how did you get views?

    Well offer isn't a bad choice. Ipads, iphones, consoles are top converting CPA's.

    Funny vids - Great for views but most people watching could be with there mates having a laugh etc so not in the right frame of mind or situation to fill an offer.

    What else have you tried?
