Is this normal with AdscendMedia or with any other CPA network?

    I am promoting cpa offers from AdscendMedia by placing banners on my movie niche site (download site). Also i am using WP Traffic tool, which helps me in geo-targeting cpa banners. Traffic comes from facebook and twitter, now thinking about youtube promotion as well. 80% offers are of downloads/install section. So, if a person clicks those banners on his own will then of course he is going to make a conversion, right? But i am not getting any conversion. Here are the stats:

    I know, clicks are not enough to judge the conversion rate but since it is coming from specific required country so it should convert i guess.
    So, is there any problem with my tactics? If yes then i should immediately improve it as i don't want to lose my traffic.
    I also tried to contact Affiliate manager and he is offline on AIM so that's why opening thread here.

    with that low amount of clicks i don't think you can judge anything.. try getting atleast 100 clicks a day and then judge on things..

    Very Few traffic. Try to boost with more traffic and then see your ePC rate.

    If you're using banners, you may want to go with another network that offers non incentive offers from which you get more money. For what I know, Adscend is a incentive network?

    That's not enough data to make conclusion. Get more clicks, at least 100-500.

    for download offers the user has to do more than just click the banner. They have to download and install the software right? maybe its a problem with the download or something. i would def contact the network

    Yeah i know the clicks are not sufficient, and no i am not judging adscendmedia by this amount of clicks i just wanted to know if it was normal or am i committing any mistake like sending them social networking traffic or what, but it was just bothering me a bit since they were banners and geo-targeted. It can be the reason that visitors are having problem with downloading/installing. Though i have checked the landing pages with proxies and they work fine, though haven't gone further. So about the non incentive network, do you guys know any of them also which accept any content (copyright/fake). I'll search a bit also and will apply to some more networks.[FONT=Tahoma, Calibri, Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif][/FONT]

    I've actually experienced some shavings by Adscend when I was sending traffic to a install offer, where the users who was clicking the link was genuinely interested in downloading the software...but I don't know. Maybe they just didn't want the software after seeing the landing page or something...:)

    The traffic is also very low. I would suggest you to start using content locker as the offers in Adscend Media are incentive offers so you should take advantage of this.

    We always suggest that publishers at least send 100 clicks before they start worrying about low conversions/epcs. Also, many times it's not the networks that shave, usually the advertisers do so they can remain profitable. I can't speak for every other network of course, but I do canfor BTM.

    It's not low clicks or fake info.. I've been doing this shit for 7 years and I'll tell you.. CPA is a joke, for every $100/$150 you make the network they MIGHT pay you $1. Pixels don't fire so you can't track it.

    It's called SHAVING and anyone that tells you that's not true is in on it as well.. Join a real affiliate program or create your own product.

    Now that's the thing which annoys me about CPA networks. Also i am good at promoting downloads/installs not email submits :/

    You nailed it! tbh i don't want to compromise when it comes to conversions. I can send huge traffic to the offers but when there is the case like paying you in pennies for bucks , it's totally absurd. I'll look for some more options after talking with AM, but he's nowhere to be found. Sending you PM to know more about Real Affiliate Program.
