Thanks to all of you that helped.
Two weeks and you're not a millionaire? What happened?
There are very few overnight successes in IM. Two weeks is not enough time and I suggest you recalibrate your expectations.
As I've said, I expected hardly anything. Although with two weeks worth of time and effort I expected at least one lead, or something.
Is the offer the problem or is it a lack of traffic altogether? Are people looking but not buying?
Are you getting clicks to your links ? If not then your shit probably looks spammy and unlegit.
If you are getting clicks, how many are you getting ? You need quite a bit of traffic (in the hundreds at least) before you'll start making any kind of money from CPA (especially from random leads).
Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.
hahahahahahaha, this thread is a joke right??
(Im not laughing cause you had zero success. Im laughing cause your about to give up after 2 weeks)
the price of success is failure.
you haven't failed enough to succeed yet.
I believe it's a traffic problem. For example on a very small scale I attempted a facebook page with a link to an offer. I promoted the page with an ad. I spent a mere $15 on ads so far. (CPM) However as I've said I have had absolutely NO clicks on my link (resulting in no leads).
Essentially same problem for youtube. Traffic issues I presume.
I am actually quite surprised that you started promoting CPA offer in 2 weeks. It is commendable IMO. Another thing is that you don't mind taking action. Try out one of the many methods on BHW and you will soon find the one that works for you.
2 weeks and giving up LMAO!
I'm sure it sounds pathetic. I'm sure all of you may know, failure blows. Especially when you're new. I've seen so many people say "the problem is you don't take action". So with this, I tried doing as much as I could, and failed.
OP, I've been at IM for about 3 months now and I've only experienced minor success. You have to put in some time. You have to test, see what works and tweek. The only money I've made has come from posting housing offers on CL and asking them to bring a credit report from wherever you're promoting because they have a detailed renter's history. Keep at it.
it took me around 2-3 months to see my first adsense click back this year
Yes traffic issues. You need to practice creating content that will get people to click on your links. You will also find that you need to approach it differently depending on where your traffic is coming from, as different types of people will require different types of encouragement to click on things.
Personally I'd start with trying to get people to click on links to legitimate places that they could find interesting (like blog or website articles), just until you get a feel for how to do it.
No point sending blaggy traffic through to your CPA company that will never convert, it will just encourage them to shave the shit out of you later on when you finally do start sending through good traffic.
If you aren't familiar with PPC, why on earth would you start your campaign on CPM. You should make multiple ad copies and do CPC to start and if you have an add that gets a decent CTR then you copy it over and turn it into a CPM.
Also I recall replying one of your posts when you first started, was it really two weeks ago? Seems shorter. Anyways, it takes a while to get anything started. If you're giving up after two weeks, then IM really isn't for you tbh.
Just my 2 cents.
IM is perseverance game. You can't expect to learn everything in 2 weeks. Refine your skills, and see how you can improve.
Are you reaching the right audience with what you're promoting? Targeting a niche market is key.
a newbie giving up?
took me 2 fuckin years to make my first penny, and when it started it wont stop even if i want it to. Never Give Up
The law of nature weeds out the weak. Now you have to decide if you are going to be strong or weak. Not everyone is cut out for this.
2 weeks is really too early to give up, it took me like 5 months to start earning regularly.
By far the best post I read today. I have been failing for oh... since for ever. I have been thinking of quieting too but when ever I do I make a few bucks here and there. Not on CPA though, I havent made shit on CPA. The best advice I can give you is to focus on one niche, create a site and create content that will get you traffic. I don't know how much traffic is needed but usually 1% is safe to say will convert. So 10,000 hits per day will convert into 100. This is just what people have told me from bhw.
