Hi all , I was just wondering if direct linking to affiliate offers are more profitable in the short run as compared to sending the traffic to squeeze pages . I ask this because my last campaign bombed . Bad . I spent $50 for a total of 394 clicks and a grand total of 10 opt-ins . I'm using Adknowledge which by far seems to be one of the best 2nd tier PPC networks . I have yet to find a better one . I do understand it seems like almost taboo in internet marketing to sell something without at least trying to get their email . But I need to start somewhere . And I can't accept a 2.5% conversion rate . Arguably , the problem could have been MY squeeze which I would definitely love to hear some creative criticism . You can find it here Also , if anybody has any tips on how to optimize my dollar spent on Adknowledge that would be immensely helpful , I still have $400+ sitting there for now .
