Is my traffic really that damn patient?

    I'm content locking some niche MP3s on my blog. I've put in a auto-unlock timer of 30 MINUTES. That's right. If a user can't fill an offer, he can go search elsewhere, or wait 30 minutes. At least that was the plan 'cause, well, guess what happened yesterday:

    CPA conversions: 3 ($1,98)
    Timer expiry event tracked: 35 unique events (from Analytics; triple-checked for misconfiguration)

    So these sons of bitches would rather wait than fill in some CPA. How can I make money out of this? Download links are already hooked up to ******

    Extend the length of the unlock even more and specify in your content locker "You can wait 60 minutes to download this, or you can choose one offer below, fill in one simple form and be downloading within 60 SECONDS." Emphasize that filling in the offer is quick, easy, painless and spam free. Otherwise just don't use the auto unlock - if they don't want to fill in the shit, they can fuck right off.

    It does sound like your traffic is patient / savvy freeloader traffic (teenagers?) but you can probably work around it with clever copywriting.

    Go with a network that supports postback, if they don't fill it, they don't get it, period.

    HAHAH thats ridiculous and awesome.

    You could just get rid of the timer.... You'll definitely loose some users, but probably make more money in the end.

    Just test it out...

    My shitty CTR (& EPC) is trying my patiente. Copyrighting didn't work, increased duration didn't worked. If you have any other suggestions will gladly put them into practice.

    I made the content locker look like this. Hopefully the offers won't take their minds away from the god damn download.

    most tweens can burn 30 minutes off chattering on the phone no problem
    -up the timer to 60 minutes and it will improve a bit but best choice is get rid of the timer entirely and use postback

    I think these days users have smartened up to classify between mobile and email ones.

    I suspect they're all mobile offers and I suggest chose email submits rather.

    Timer removed completely.
    Those offers are just for my country because there's only 4 of them. But for the first world I already prioritized ZIP/E-mail submits.

    I'll be back with updates tomorrow.

    Try with 24hours waiting, not less, try and with postback and compare results.

    Guess what happened? Let me tell you how fucking unpredictable this traffic is.
    They *BOUGHT* the music. Yes, the visitor actually BUYS music instead of filling CPA.

    We're affiliated with the music store but commissions are really crap.

    It barely made $10 this month.

    I would wait for 30 minutes too rather than fill in the offer :p

    just remove the timer, the file size and .mp3 written on your content locker are already enough to convince visitors that you have the mp3 they're looking for ;)

    They need crystal clear 320kbps sound if they're going to mix/remix.
