    About three years ago I decided to give the adult business a try by signing up to promote a cam affiliate. Basically I had no experience in this, but I gave it a try. Over that three year period I was able to get about a little over 200 people to signup with me. Only 104 of those actually confirmed with a credit card. Four of those people were repeat customers and earned me a little over $24K. I know you guys want to see proof of my earnings, so please click on the image to see it. Snapshot_2.jpeg

    When I started I bought 3 different domain names and cobranded them to my rev share affiliate offer. I used a blog, Twitter,Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Punchpin, adult classifieds, and link exchange to drive traffic to my offer. I also purchased a few Fiverr traffic gigs and some permanent links on adult tube sites.

    Well recently traffic seems to have literally stopped and my 4 reliable buyers no longer spend. (I am still trying to drive traffic the ways I explained above.) I believe I have a whole $2.80 in the affiliate account at this moment.

    So my question is, do you think it is time to move to a different affiliate offer, or do I need to change my ways of driving traffic? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Is the actual offering and service up to par with what is now offered, i.e. is it any good for customers?
    Also have you checked your backlink portfolio recently? Cause those Fiverr links may be the reason.

    Don't bother with fiverr anymore, you're bound to get more bad than good.

    First, you have to find out if the offer is still profitable. If the affiliate program offers research tools, you can use them for this purpose. If it turns out that no one is signing up for that offer anymore, try a different one.
