    I stayed through this network through all the shaving and rumors, But im done. This month i have lost 50% of my earnings, 75% of my clicks/traffic, and they just gave me some BS excuses.

    I have tried signing up for Adnooka but they still haven't replied, grrr.


    My question so this thread isn't completely useless, Has your earnings on AWM went down? If you don't use AWM, what networks has been working for you?

    See, idk. My clicks/earnings have dropped, even though my sites and videos are still going stronger than ever before. AWM says some BS excuse like "Oh, That day or this month has only been bad for you, the rest of the network is fine." or things like "Networks all over CPA have been hit with low CR rates" even though other networks are going strong.

    Yeah half my clicks are gone too....and LITERALLY half my clicks, for every day are GONE, and the epc is SHIT
    It used to be good with AWM, but these days, it just aint worth it
    Many other CPA networks convert better now
    And honestly I prefer another network that show me ALL my clicks but a lil lower EPC than a network that shave half my clicks and try to fool me

    I sent a support ticket, They just gave me some promo codes :(

    I used to have around .14 EPC Monthly, like .11-.20 daily. Now its .10 this month, and .03-.08 Daily. Clicks have dropped from 125-150 daily to 50-75 daily.

    Bro, have you ever heard about incentive cpa networks?

    If not, just do a quick search, find the best ones (or pm me for a list of good cpa networks ;) ) and apply to them.

    AWM is not the only network out there. LOL :D:D

    There are many neteworks out there :)

    @Anyone:pM me if you want the list.

    It's too bad some of these guys don't have a larger presence here on BHW. It would help their biz if they did, by being able to answer some of these questions from the very people who are doing the work for them.

    On a different note, is there any active people on BHW that are known managers of these CPA companies?

    Is AWM incentive?

    Incentive traffic is very very poor quality, something I cant express enough. Im an affiliate manager at Society Invite and we do not permit incentive offers because it is a very volatile method of promotion.

    AWM failing is not a surprise to me if they are purely an incent only network.

    There are many incentive networks banking good, and if advertisers keep paying them for traffic, it's not that bad and still makes em money anyways

    There are other purely incentive networks that are doing very good for years. Adscend Media is one, for example. Maybe you should learn more about the industry.

    Im quite familiar with the industry and I actually personally pushed incent traffic back in early 08; there is no reason to attempt to insult, it does not fuel proper conversation.

    Making people sign up to get something not related to what they want generates poor quality traffic no matter how you look at it. I did not say you cant make money from poor quality traffic.

    The proper way to push incent is to have the incent offers in the niche of the demographic to help keep the advertiser happy.

    Incent offers are also known to be heavily filtered on the advertiser end.

    To be honest I did not attempt to insult you. I just honestly thought you needed to learn more becuase I thought you came to the conclusion that AWM were going downhill becuase of being an incent only network.
