    I just started my youtube/ cpa journey yesterday. Uploaded a video added some comments and likes and have over 12K views but only 38 clicks and 1 lead.

    Anyone can offer any tips on how to improve my conversion rate??? I'm using adscendmedia. Maybe their offers aren't good. Idk. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    My video is High Quality. I have around 1000 downloads on my mediafire link but only 51 clicks (just checked a few minutes ago) and 1 conversion.

    I just edited my password file with the instructions on how to obtain the password to extract the files so we'll see what that does.

    Btw I'm doing the Youtube/ mediafire+ content locking method

    Landing page or blogger page with awsome quality and direct download will get more conversions , trust me ;)

    From 1000 downloads , means 1000 downlaod, and 1000+ clicked on link , so with good blog or landing page you could much more conversions , just make them sure your website is really professional

    Thanks. I had originally started with that method but read a couple threads where many people were bypassing the website step and doing the mediafire download directly. I think I may do a couple videos with landing pages and a couple without and see how big a difference it makes.

    Btw, I just checked and I now have 55 leads and 2 conversions. Maybe the edit in the password file worked. :)

    Trust me , Landing page + Direct link will work much better , i can say that from experience,

    If you have money buy .com domain , it will boost conversions too. good domain name + profesional landing page will give more downloads :) You could get maybe 10% conversions , so from 1000 views - 100 downloads.

    I would suggest to use .com domain , it gives more trust, make landing page , and if you are not sure if its profesional , i could look at it if you want

    I think you're doing better than me.

    I got around 1200 clicks to the video, 88 clicks on the campaign, and only 2 conversions that summed $1,20.
    Will try with a landing page too and see how will turn.

    Well I still have no landing page and I don't plan on making one with this particular video.

    Update: I have 71 clicks with 7 leads now. Conversion rate is 9.9%. :D

    I guess altering that password.txt file actually did me some good.

    Yeah , but you missing out , hmm alot of people . 1000 downloaded from mediafire and only less then 10% clicked on aff link , and only 7 conversions out of 1000 visitors, now you see , that huge difference ,

    7 conversions of 1000 visitors , is something like 0.07% , if my math is right :D

    With landing page if you get 5% conversions it would be much much more in money , just look at numbers :)

    You know why noy so much people click on your link ? They see passworded file and deletes it after that, i do that , and everyone else do that, they dont care if there is text file with link to password, they just delete.

    I used to do password protection too , but landing page + direct download works much better, there is huge differenc in earning $1 , if yo can make $20 or more from 1000 visitors .

    I just want to warn you, dont be full, try to get as much as you can from this, sooner or later , videos will be deleted and you will get 0 traffic. ;)

    Everything is up to you !

    Yes I do plan on taking your advice but for this particular video it would be pointless to make a website now because its one of those niches thats only popular for a day or two. lol

    I have started a journey thread if you'd like to follow it. I will incorporate website creation starting tomorrow. Thanks for all the advice.

    Look at the way you persuade the video visitors to click on the download link. Maybe you find something to improve there and increase the views/clicks ratio.

    In the long run it is better to create a website (even a blogger blog will do) and direct the visitors to it rather than giving them a mediafire download directly as your website may even rank in Google and your traffic could boost highly.

    That's exactly what happened to one of my blogger blogs when I just started - it now gets 50+ visitors from Google daily without me even doing any SEO to it, just 2 YouTube videos linking to that website.

    About the password.txt file, give your visitors a reasonable explanation why they should complete an offer to obtain the password.

    Good luck!

    I have used adscendmedia as their link locker solves the purpose. You send your traffic to your LP and then to your link locker and finally the download link(ofcourse without password protect file)

    @Pros above: am i going in the right direction? pls guide

    Yes that's correct.


    I have a question myself. I'm with ad*scend and my website is against their TOS. If I install my content locker on the site will they be able to tell or will faking the referer hide the site from them?
