    Hi all

    I will start this journey to keep me motivated. I have been doing this method already for six weeks and was about giving up until I read about PureHustle's success yesterday.
    I'm using a mix between BTB's method and AC_Inception's method.

    Till now I have been using email submits and it didn't worked out as I was expecting. Like many other members who are doing this method, I was thinking that I would hit a golden ticket within a couple of days. Unfortunately it is always harder then it seems like. In those six weeks I made ~$30.

    Goal:

    - Find a good converting CPA offer ( not an email submit )
    - Get a stable amount of leads each day
    - Earn $40 a day


    What I have:

    - 5 websites; 3 blocked by Facebook; 2 active; 1 currently using for promoting email submits
    - 4 proxies
    - 4 Facebook accounts
    - Massplanner

    Plan:

    - Keep going with email submits until I find a better CPA offer. The small amounts of the email submits will provide me some money to keep using the proxies and Massplanner
    - Read all the Facebook threads again that are inspiring me. This way I hope to find out some new tips and insight in what I'm doing wrong
    - Find a new good converting CPA offer + a not saturated niche on Facebook
    - When the CPA offer is good enough build a new 'newsie' site around the CPA offer
    - Start promoting this offer on Facebook
    - If it will convert, scale it up with more websites. If it won't convert, start again and find a new offer

    Problems I currently facing:

    - Get almost no leads with these email submits
    - After all the research I've been doing for the email submits, I only can think of that I'm posting in the wrong groups
    - Can't find a good converting CPA offer

    I try to update as many as possible.

    Update 1

    Things don't start well... I have been posting yesterday in over 70 groups with a setup that brought me earlier ~$5. This time it brought me nothing. I only made $1.10 from a post that I didn't promoted yesterday.

    Posts on Facebook: over 70
    Hops to website : 135
    Hops to offer : 20
    Earnings : $1.10

    Plan for today: Read threads again. Doing no posts today, maybe the groups are bored with my offers

    The major problem you have is lead-ins not the offer. With over 70 posts made, you should have gotten more than 1k+ visits, not just 135. You have a ~ 15% click-through rate to your offer, which is good. CR can also be improved by choosing better offers, but you can do that later - for now, just focus on your ad copy and make sure you give people enough curiosity/incentive to enter your website!

    Yes I think you're right. I just started reading BtB's thread again and before I reached the last post on the first page I realized that my lead-ins and my website articles are not good.
    I always state in the lead-ins that I have found an offer/giftcard/giveaway. And do the same thing in the articles. This is not the right way to do this.

    I'm going to overthink this again.
    Thank you for pointing this out!

    I didn't post anything on Facebook yesterday. Still got some clicks, no conversions. I have been reading BTB's thread again and thanks to this thread and Thunderelvi I realised that I have been doing it all wrong. I will get a new domain with a great news mag theme.

    Posts on Facebook: 0
    Hops to website : 30
    Hops to offer : 10 (All visitors from outside the USA)
    Earnings : $0

    Plan for today: Buy a new domain. Setup the new website and get some articles + create some money articles.

    The lead-in the most crucial part. Create some intrigue. Leave the person with a little bit of mystery. You will see in groups hundreds of posts saying "I just found where to get xyz for free"...blah blah blah. People are used to these and are blind to them. I had a PM asking will a pizza submit work in a gaming room..... and my answer was do these kids not get fed by their mums. Tie the offer to the group and create some mystery and leave the person to click the link by choice.

    Thunder is spot on, those numbers indicate poor group selection/poor lead ins. You can juice your LP much more and get a 30 - 40% CTR to your offer page, but for right now focus on getting hits from FB->LP that's the first point of failure for your campaign.

    My guess is your posting in highly spammed groups with a scammy looking pitch which will yield low results, the biggest groups aren't always the most responsive.

    Update 3

    Yesterday bought a new domain + made a good looking newsy website with content. Created some money articles(1 with a clickbank offer and 3 with email submits). However I think the articles are good enough but the call to action part + the lead-ins on Facebook are still not good. I find it really hard to create good lead-ins. I guess this is because english is not my native language.

    I had some spare time yesterday evening and decided to push some posts on Facebook. Did 12 posts for the CB offer and 10 posts for a email submit article.
    Some people were thanking me for posting the article on their group, so I guess that is a good sign.

    Posts on Facebook: 22
    Hops to website : 87
    Hops to offer : 17 (Clickbank) 0 (for the email submit)
    Earnings : $0

    Plan for today: Try to improve the call to action on the money articles. Try to improve my lead-ins and post on Facebook again.

    I tried to put in some mystery, like you said. However it is still hard for me to create lead-ins. Maybe I'm overthink this part.... But I will try again today. Thanks for pointing this out!

    Well I must say that these groups are not really spammy groups, at least as far as I can see. But maybe still not the right groups for my niche. Maybe I should look into to hire someone who is creating lead-ins for me.. Thanks for your help!

    Hey bgp90,

    The leads I had the most success was when I made them aware of "a problem" and presented them a solution, in other words I "sold" them a dream not a product, most people don't really care about your product/offer, it's just what they get in return, how can they benefit from buying/giving their email/etc...

    With the landing page I kept it very simple and used a theme similar to Apple, big & beautiful picture, bullet points... everything that is written on that lander is simple (about 400words max), easy to understand, with clear but subtle instructions on what to do so that can achieve their dream (by using what i sell of course), I try not to leave anything to their imagination.

    Good luck in your journey, subscribed [​IMG]

    Thank you. Well you could earn some money from your group. If you join other groups within your niche, you are able to earn even more money.

    Update 4: Disappointed

    Made yesterday 60 posts in 60 groups. NO conversions :( I noticed an increase in traffic that visited my website so that is good.

    Posts on Facebook: 60 (50 for clickbank, 10 for email submit)
    Hops to website : 162
    Hops to offer : 18(Clickbank) 1 (for the email submit)
    Earnings : $0

    Plan for today: I don't have much time today, so I guess I will skip the posting part. I have the feeling when I post to much in the groups that they will get bored by my posts.
    Try to improve the lead-ins and the call to action on the articles. Besides that i'm trying to setup prosper202 on my server for testing purposes

    You can use one of your other FB accounts as support and just comment and re-share your original post in that group to create momentum (that is if your not already doing that).

    Before you waste more time trying to post in vain to more groups, I suggest once again to do that. Traffic is everything! You should be getting at least 4-5x more traffic from your posting efforts and numbers. With the current numbers you are sharing in this post, if you had 5x more traffic, you would have made 2 sales already on CB (assuming you convert 1 in 50 hops).

    Update 5

    Yesterday did some lead-in optimization but had not much time.

    Posts on Facebook: 0
    Hops to website : 30
    Hops to offer : 0
    Earnings : $0

    Plan for today: Continue with lead ins and prosper202. Have some trouble with prosper202; support team of hosting + support of prosper202 don't have a clue what is wrong at this moment. Hope I will find a solution soon.
