Hello Dear Blackhatters! I have been reading this forum for about half a year, and often I find my self more interested in a method, than actually doing it. I like the idea, but do not always take action. A little background info, I have already been "lucky"/"succesful" or whatever you want to call it. I recieved a couple of commision in the 300$+ range just for one lead/sale. Anyway this was not easy to get more of those because of competition and strict rules from the affiliate company. Anyways enough history. On the 1st of August I created a CB account, just to test the market. Since I deal with a non-english speaking country, I though why not give it a try sending visitors straight to the landingpage, and hope for the conversions. So here is a little breakdown of what happend: Day 1: Recieved about 200 clicks to the LP. - NO sales so i started to loose faith is this stuff. Day 2: Left for the weekend to drink beer and catch up with friends. Day 3: Same stuff lol. Day 4. That will be today. Logged into CB just out of curiosity. And here is the interesting part, my CB showed stats of about 50 more cliks on day 2, and roughly 20 on day 3. Beacuse of the nature of my traffic methods the source of traffic is only temporary. BUT, when i checked the CB stats I have two sales in my a account. Buy I have some consern and questions for you pro CB marketers. 1. My stats show 270 hops/ order form impression count 10 / order form impression calls 2/ sales amount roughly 60$. These 60$ in initial sales/gross sales is this "cut" or is this the full amount the buyer paid. 2. Is this accountable as stats? Good conversiton oer bad conversion? 3. What I did not realize, before I had already started the promotion, was that the owner of the product have put a "floating" opt in form, that I suspect people opt in for, and my affiliate links are long gone. Is this regular practice from the CB authors? 4 Would you guys reccomend products without a landing page with opt ins for "free" stuff? 5. The product i sold had a gravity of less than 4. Is it advisable to pick niches above a certain gravity? And why, why not? Thank you guys you rock! Feel free to ask me any questions if I can help. edit: Gravity was super high. just wanted to correct that.
