    you gettin scubbed hardcore. AM probably isnt going to do anything. What network you going through? wouldn't be surprised if it were Adscend. I'd try a different network although it could just be that particular advertiser.

    Publisher: Hello, I'd like to speak with someone about why I'm not getting any conversions.

    Affiliate Manager: I can help you with that, what seems to be the problem?

    Publisher: Well, I'm pretty pissed off. I've got all my boyz filling out mad offers but I'm not getting any conversions. What kind of hack circus are you clowns running over there? Do I need to lawyer up or are you just going to pony up my $8?

    Affiliate Manager: :confused:


    Seriously though, you didn't mention what social network you were getting traffic from or how you were promoting the offers. Without giving any details it'll be tough to get any good advice. In most cases 200 clicks is far too few to judge the success of a campaign on. Keep at it.

    I've been using Facebook and Twitter for promoting the cpa offer
    I'm not sure if i can post the name of the cpa network without getting banned

    but they are one of the major cpa networks

    I do gotta mention this account was inactive for about 6 months as i was using another cpa network for a while could this effect the conversion rate as they seen i was not active for 6 months? and not giving me credit?

    and these offers are 1.75 per email submit 236 clicks = 413$ (if everyone submitted) i am super pissed off and i am going to call my AM in the morning

    These places are well known for being low converters on offers. It depends a great deal also on how you were promoting your offers.

    I can get 1000 visitors to an offer in a heartbeat, but if they were not targeted, I will get zero returns.

    What SPB said was true also.. 200 some impressions doesn't tell you much. You only know so far that your conversion ratios are low, and maybe you need to change something.

    If you want to yell at your AM in the morning you are welcome to, though I think they are going to say something similar regarding the amount of traffic. After 2000 you might have something to complain about.

    Did you expect everyone to submit?
