    HI ALL!
    I'm new to the adult site promotion. I have bought up to 20K skimmed traffic and have no sign up or conversions from all 3 affiliates I currently have.
    My question is when using skimmed traffic(all US) What is usually the conversion rate? I want to have an idea so I can rethink my investment.
    Thank you all.

    when buying skimmed traffic you need a tracker (for example voluum or also prosper but prosper is a bit out of date today). mostly skimmed traffic is RON traffic, that means you buy traffic from many different websites. so you must be able to filter the bad targets out. also what offer do you use DOI/SOI/PPS?
    when you are not able to track your trafficsource its a waste of money to buy skimmed traffic. trust me i know what i am talking about!
    also be prepared to loose some money before you can make your campaign profitable..maybe you will never be able to make it profitbale honestly said when your offer is shit or you have not a good payout from your network.
    also its better to use a landing page...

    -> also in general: adult and paid traffic is really hard today. i made the last months 26k revenue with adult but i lost my good campaigns and after all this time when i calculate i am break even after much frustration and time i spent in it. i stopped for that reason to buy adult traffic.

    My recommendation would be to stop buying skimmed traffic immediately and focus on driving real traffic to your site through organic and social means. I don't honestly think there is a single thing you can do to actually get skimmed traffic to convert.

    Best of luck.

    Thank you! That is a great advice. When you said landing page, you meant have one page that links to my affiliates right? I'm actually using a page (category page) for the skimmed traffic. But now I will create a new landing page just for that.
    Thanks I appreciate it.

    This type of adult traffic can serve a number of purposes, but I've rarely found it to be exceptionally valuable from a conversion or revenue standpoint. There are however certainly times when this RON traffic can come in handy, but it's not a direct money maker in my opinion (almost no matter what you do).

    I'd definitely look at some other alternatives. There is money in paid adult, but it's largely in PPV circles and/or media buying specialists. If you have minimal experience with paid media ... adult will simply burn through your bankroll in a heartbeat. Learn the ropes with some free traffic from social networking or some other method you might find here on BHW.
