    dont you love sensational headlines

    soo... i've been posting to good old CL with PVAs to W4M section

    auto-responder replies to incoming leads within 30 minutes

    first email is a basic greeting to get through spam folder

    second email (which comes direct from user) includes a "My Homepage" link in email reply

    curious people are directed to a landing page that looks like a girls personal homepage

    there girl says that she only talks to people who register with a "particular dating sponsor"

    trying to start small (since PVAs cost money), if i can prove success at this small scale then plan is to scale up of course

    now here lies the problem:

    seem to be doing ok getting people to respond to my greeting email >> click My Homepage link in second email >> click to sponsor >> even register (free signup)

    but free signups simply do not turn into paid sales!!!

    also sponsor was even kind enough to let me create a fake profile with same pic so people who register can find the profile..

    is this whole method too played out and doomed to failure or should i continue tweaking it, maybe free joins simply need more time to mature into paid sales???

    my goal is to earn $3 per free signup on average ... $2 would still be acceptable

    here are sponsor stats (would rather not say which sponsor but most will know anyway)

    any suggestions are MUCH appreciated!!!

    thank you

    With 7 Impressions, and 2 free signups and one sale, it is incredible to get $35 payout. Are you doing on dating affiliate?

    If you are looking to get more, try something new, which is getting people from facebook, mostly men die for girls there :)

    i've seen other peoples stats from same sponsor, everyone seems to be getting $2-3 per free join

    i got all excited at 20 free joins a day, in my mind i can scale that 10x pretty easy

    how is it that free joins are coming in but no sales

    never tried facebook... imagine its much harder than craigslist, also no idea how i would automate it

    You gotta give it a couple weeks for the signups to really ramp up. Give them some time to monetize the leads for you. If you need to scale, start working on another campaign. Don't let those leads get stale because they're fresh and willing to do anything until they find a piece of ass.

    You should convert your bh leads to wh leads. Setup some opt in landers for dick pills, weight loss, and other dating offers (duh!). Hit up some porn sites, find popular adverts and rip the landers they're using. You can use winhttrack (free/opensource). Collect their emails and send from a premium smtp relay provider like amazon ses or sendgrid (not aweber).

    The journey to a giant list begins with a single opt in.

    well said!

    you know i really need to learn to monetize these initial blackhat email leads

    in a perfect world i'd like to extract all possible value with a single reply but in reality i gotta hit them multiple times with different offers

    and only solution is to learn to do it myself cause anyone else would cut me only a fraction of their true value

    btw im currently mailing with my own perl script by spreading load over many gmail acounts (via smtp), seems that inboxing rate is good
