    I don't know what happened, but for some reason after december 15th, my conversion rate for my affiliate offers have gone insanely low, and nothing has changed.

    I promote dating offers with facebook, I made $1,000 from dec.1st - dec. 15th, but now I struggle just to even make over $12 per day :/

    Do you think it's because my fake facebook accounts are exhausted? I keep them maintained and post the link around 3 times per day on each account (I have 4 right now, I had around 6 when I made the $1k)

    Back in december I thought the drop was just because of christmas break, but now that's all over and my conversions still blow.

    What's going on?

    Maybe the network is shaving.

    Have you tried a different network?

    I don't think they would be shaving, they are a widely known network with great reviews.
    I got 2 payments of $1,100 from them, so I trust them. I guess I should still try another network to make sure.

    Well, the thing is, I'm not sure about that.
    I made a brand new fake account and got new friends that arent mutual friends with the other accounts, and I still get shit conversions for some reason.

    Try doing some split-tests mate. Lots of marketers go through periods like this but eventually find their way back to success. Wish you the best.

    Thank you. I've been trying to spice up my landing pages to see if I can help get more conversions that way.
    As a matter of fact, I made $30 today, as opposed to $6-12 per day the past 6 days. I miss the days where I made $100-150 per day :p

    Being big doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't shaving.

    On the other hand, the advertisers might be paying less.

    The payout for the offer is still the same, I'm just getting less conversions.

    I'm testing with another affiliate network and going to see the results.

    Well if you just promote to your friends list, they eventually will become immune to it very fast.
    You can only have 5k friends, and everyday a few hundreds will understand that you are just spamming affiliate links until where the point comes that nobody will click your link anymore which seems to have happened to you just right now.
    However, not bad for keeping this up for 15 days. Good job.

    Spend some time posting only non-commercial content so you "reset" your fans expectations. If they only expect commercial offers, they'll likely all have unfollowed your newsfeed.

    just before Christmas is going to be a bigger time for traffic because everybodys home away from the cold and surfing for gift ideas or what not, you might want to think about changing it up and moving your efforts to a new account or niche. don't put all your eggs in one basket.
