    Hello Members

    i am really struggling as i have bought 100 USD of Credit with 7search for my CPA offers. i am already 50 USD down and i havent even made any single cent on maxbounty. i dont know what i am doing wrong but help here is much appreciated. mostly i am using 1 page submit offers but none of them are converting. i cn see more than 300 clicks on different offers as well but none of them gave me a single cent.i am not creating any landing page and i have tried several different ads as well but its simply not working out for me. i think i am just going to quit this and concentrate on my full time job as this is not working out for me. help here would be much appreciated.

    cheers

    If you are new to this I'd say try different traffic source. PPC can be profitable but it's also expensive and if you don't know what youre doing you can burn thru a lot of money very fast without making anything.

    They aren't filling in your offers, that's why you are not earning.

    I've heard Maxbounty shaves horribly. Whether that is true or not, I'm not 100%, as I've not ran with them.

    Also, I've been told by many people they had much worse luck with 7search than other options.

    So, it may be one of those factors. I wouldn't give up just yet, just tweak what you're doing. Look for new networks, look for different traffic sources. Is PPC the only thing you've tried?

    correct me if I am wrong but EPC gives you an idea of how much you earn per click.
    Lets say for example you got 20 clicks 5 converted(offer is 1dollar per lead) your EPC would be 0,25 per click. (20 clicks x 0,25 EPC = 5 bucks)

    Hey mate!
    Maxbounty doesn't shave, at least for me they never did.
    7search does send horrible traffic from my experience!
    Chargeback the money you've sent to them and move on to another PPC network.

    Nobody said it was easy :) Unfortunately it's really hard to help without seeing your ads and keywords (do not post them here). 7search traffic usually has a lower conversion rate (for me at least).

    EPC doesn't mean you earn money per click. It's CPA, you get paid for leads.

    EPC is calculated from your earnings and your traffic: commissions earned divided by the number of clicks = EPC

    EPC is calculated across the whole network (maxbounty in this case), it does not guarantee anything.

    I think you should've tried promoting some clickbank affiliate offer, rather CPA. I've seen few people who have claimed that they've had positive experience with 7search and CB.

    I see :(
    Generally starting your IM career straight with paid traffic is probably the hardest thing to do. If I remember correctly one guy who had exceptional success with 7seach even said "prepare to waste thousands of $$, before you can understand how to be efficient with paid traffic" or something along those lines.

    7search + CB works nicely.

    You must research when you start to promoting a new program,research both the offer and the traffic you selected.

    Bro don't be discouraged , 7Search traffic if not filtered(massively) is some of the lowest quality of traffic out there, some of the finest in the CPA game have not had success with 7search traffic...
