    Hi, I started online marketing some months ago. I tried multiple ways to receive traffic (youtube, Google SEO, spam, Social networking...) but I always had a problem:
    I tried a lot of CPA, PPD and PPI networks and I always had very low leads. With RevenYou I did less than $300 with 14000 downloads, and even less with other network.
    Now I'm trying a CPA network (CPAGrip). I have 262 views and only 3 leads ($0.60). I saw people with like 1000 views and $2000.

    I'm using microniche websites with download (for example a console emulator or pdf download).
    What am I doing wrong?

    161 views from a microniche website of a console emulator (Which get click from the FB Page),
    other 100 from fb comments (Url locker for a pdf book, which I posted under the official page of the writer).

    You need to analyze those views. Where are they coming from(country), how long do they stay etc.
    And is this info for 1 day? If it's only 1 day than you have not enough data to consider whether it's working or not. You should consistently bring in 161 views a day and see what happens. Sometimes there are just bad days....

    Clicks 256 Leads 11


    This is what I got the other day. Split test different networks and landingpages.

    I started with CPAGrip only some days ago, but I can show the data I had on revenyou:

    The main sources was and still USA, India and other West-Asia countries. I don't know why, but a lot of clicks were not shown on the map.
    And on CPAGrip 33% views come from unknow land:

    The pdf download I was posting on fb is Italian. I could never make much money from Italy, since there are no free offer (they are like "insert your number to get a free Ipad").

    (sorry for the bad grammar)

    You might want to give Pinterest a try. I've had good results with them compared to Facebook.

    I'll try Pinterest asap, but I want to be sure I'm not doing something wrong.
    I got other 140 views on CPAGrip, but not a single lead. I found great ways to get click on facebook in a little time, but I simply can't get leads. Is there some Affiliate Program which could do better for me? (it should accept traffic from FB comments, and it would be even better if it accepted fake niches)

    Make sure your landing page has got a high CTR, pick the best converting offers and try again. You gotta optimize.

    CpaGrip has not so many landing pages, I've chosen the better looking for my niches.
    I'm going to remove the low performing offers and wait for new results.
    I'm trying another Affiliate Program too (CrakRevenue) for an Adult Niche (through Facebook), I'll see the results here.

    Sorry for the doublepost, but I have another question: Is there some other way to monetize clicks from facebook spam? I can get a lot of click, but they have a terrible convertion. I thought about adfly, but it pays to low and IDK if it accepts clicks from FB spam.
    (I didn't asked in the PPC section because it's fast dead)

    Getting traffic is only half the battle, then you have to optimize, whatever you do, don't give up. You have to try a million different variables, sometimes to the point of insanity, in my case, lol. I mean really. Sometimes just two different words or a slightly different graphic or whatever changes everything. There is usually a way to monetize just about any kind of traffic, you're on the right path.

    5 days after, still got nothing.
    I optimized offers on CPAGrip, removing the low performing ones. And I got only 1 lead (which gave me $7.10. It would be great, if it wasn't the only one).
    I spammed my Adult Niche FB Page, getting 100 likes and more than 1300 views and 500 clicks on the website. 292 clicks on Crakrevenue, $0.10.
    I'll try PPI again, to see the results here. IDK why, but I simply can't get leads with CPA or PPD service.
