    Hi All,

    So I have a question but first I want to explain my setup so you get a feel for what I'm trying to do.

    Basically I made a video on Youtube in a specific niche ages ago (before I knew about internet marketing). It was a tutorial I made and at the time I had no intention on trying to make money from it outside Adsense. Basically it blew up and got 150k+ views and to this date its still growing and gathering views. The relevance of the video will never out date because its something people are always looking for and no one else has made a video in that area. The video is ranked number 1 on YouTube and Google for simple keyword search of the video.

    OK SO. I also have a blog and on that blog I made a post regarding the video with additional instructions and notes and even comments which I linked in the description of the YouTube video. After a month or so of gaining traffic to my blog (or to that particular post/page), I've now noticed my blog and video are both ranked number 1 and 2 on Google for simple keyword search.

    I'm now using CleanFiles to lock some of my download links on my blog and although I'm getting a ton of visits/impressions and clicks on the survey's I'm yet to have anyone actually complete one. I was wondering if anyone had some tips on how I could actually get these people to take the extra mile and actually fill these survey's out. I was thinking about creating a custom landing page so under the "Download Now" button they can see some screen shot instructions on how to actually fill the surveys out and unlock the file. I feel like I've worked very hard to finally get a consistent flow of traffic to my blog and I really want to start converting this traffic into money. CleanFiles provides a little stat timeline thingy in your control panel so you can see what it looks like when people visit your page.. So far out of all the impressions, clicks and visits I've had not a single person has gone past the point of opening the survey, they all seem to just exit off.

    So yeah, any tips are greatly appreciated... Please don't bash on me for asking, I'm very new to this and I am willing to work and try different tactics, I'm just asking to learn :)

    Thanks

    "content locking" only works for certain type of content.

    I would suggest offering them sometype of content that goes along with the video. Collect there email and then market other products and services too them, from your email list.

    Well the whole reason I went for content locking was because this particular piece of software is something what everyone wants but doesn't know how to get. I spent ages trialing different/various ways and finally got it to work. So I thought it would be very popular and if people were desperate enough to want it, they'd spend a few minutes doing the surveys.

    Just to talk about some of my stats on cleanfiles from last night, I got over 600+ page impressions/visitors and 85 clicks on surveys but no one completed a single one and my earnings remained at $0
