    I got accpeted by vCommission today and started CPA just now, marketing on twitter, so far I've had over 300 clicks but no leads what-so-ever, I've got targetted twitter-followers, posting status-updates which they are interested in (As you can tell by the clicks) - But not getting any leads.

    Would anyone mind sharing some tips / better methods for earning money from CPA? I can't find any guides on it anywhere.

    Depends what your trying to get them to buy or do. It can be so many variables that does make a site converts or not.

    First ask yourself, if you were them would you buy that? if so when you get to the site your sending them, is it easy to buy? well made? or are you tricking them to go to that site?

    jeez their is too many things involved in making something convert. Unless you have very targeted stuff, conversion will be high.

    It's things like e-mail submits for free stuffs, trails and what not, all related to what their following me for and I personally would submit my e-mail for 90% of what I'm posting.

    You have to understand that just opening at twitter account, gaining lots of followers, then posting affiliate links is not going to get you hard cash. Some reasons why:

    Why should they trust you?
    Do they really know you?
    Why are they following you?
    Is you offer link related to you/job in anyway?
    Its over a year old now and to many people are doing it. You have to gain a solid following now to earn big cash.

    I have three twitter accounts one for ewhoring, one for my personal branding/business, and one for my main blog.

    Take my main blog twitter account which is where I earn successfully when I post links. Why you may ask. The reasons are:

    1) People are following me for a vaild reason, want my advice, find me helpful from past experience of my blog, competition spying on me.

    2) All my tweets are related to my niche/blog. For example are linked to a blog post on a review, what I have used etc They are not just random tweets.

    3) My tweets solve common problems that I know many of my followers will have. I dont just tweet in the hope of people taking up the offer.

    4) I tweet a lot of useful information links also (non-aff)

    There could be some major scrubbing going on by the advertiser.

    I was just going to post that, but Writt beat me to it. :)

    Whenever I get loads of clicks, and no conversions, the first thing I do is switch my offer to something similar from another network. Then I send the same amount of traffic, and see what happens.

    I had this exact problem with a CPA network (gonna remain nameless at the moment). Sent 1000 uniques, zero conversions. Called my rep, who gave me a lame canned response, so I switch offers to another network the same day.

    Another 1100 unique clicks and got a %44 percent conversion rate. So the lesson learned? Not all CPA networks are the same, and neither are their offers. If you think something "fishy" is going on, then try and changing one thing first, then wait, see the results. If no change, switch out something else. Hope that helps.

    What network are you using for an almost 50% conversion rate?
