    Hey,
    Okay ive got a site promoting cams.com

    Ive had 97 people signup in under a month and only 1000 uniques to it... however i have made $0 cash from this... cams.com i am promoting only pay per order or a % payout.

    So what shall i switch too and immediatly??

    Highest payout and a cams type site it needs to be :)

    Thanks
    Lewi

    Oh and thought i would add that it's very targeted traffic and as soon as ive gotten a better affiliate program i will be getting 5k uniques the next month and then 10k and it will level out at 20k a month i think.... so really need to find something good.

    Oh and i did this as a lil side project so am impressed at its converting stats.

    I've heard AdultFriendFinder pays you per sign up, no matter what they do. I could be wrong, but that's what I read a few days back.

    Yes true, plus if you promote other adult offers, the advertisers will end up banning or changing your affiliate status as revenue share, for example Adult Friend Finder.

    Actually Cams.com does pay per payout. For example if someone orders $10 in credits I earn $75. But I feel for ya. I have had 1100 uniques in the last 3 days.

    44 signups and only made $300 so only 4 sales. With 97 theres gotta be some fishy stuff going on.

    If you are looking for something similar I would suggest going with webcams.com they have the $42 payout on 4.99 trials. I'm not a huge fan of IMLIVE(PussyCash) but many seem to like it.

    DatingGold has WebcamClub.

    Good Luck

    What's your method to get traffic to the site? Are you just shooting them to the landing page?

    Okay... well i was shocked to see the traffic as it was and known i can bump that up as i did with my old adult site so that im getting alot more traffic everyday.

    Will switch from pay per % on cams and put it on pay per order (which i thought it was originally)... and its $130 now per order....

    For you noobs at the top learn to read whoever suggested or even talked about AFF

    And I said "Yes true, plus if you promote other adult offers, the advertisers will end up banning or changing your affiliate status as revenue share, for example Adult Friend Finder."

    Just gave AFF as an example to stay away btw, I know that small "attack" was on me :p

    Anyway im out of this thread, just gave my suggestion without thinking of the "past", maybe u don't know what happened. :rolleyes:

    cams.com rocks!!

    You have to be sure to get your members to convert by marketing to them in a specific manner (although, you can never control what they do)

    Good Luck :)

    Maybe if i add a zip submit or email submit to the front landing page to some other adult site... can't remember who had a good one but will keep looking i know maxbounty has one for a adult magazine paying $1.25 per email submit. So thanks :)

    Ha ha this was a test i spent $20 on a banner and $5 on the coding for the landing page and $10 for the advertising.... is getting me traffic everyday and traffics ever increasing now so was well worth the small investment as a side project anyway.

    Actually i didn't even look at the names of anyone replying all you yellow named people look the same (ha ha) but AFF ive used before and earnt a load of cash with them and had an awful converting ratio but they never converted me as i mailed them and said if they did then i would change to dating gold (their competitor) and that seemed to do the trick.

    But seeing as im advertising for a cams site i need to lead them to a cams site not a dating site.... that's why i said what i did.

    Yeah im looking at some more advertising channels soon and scaling up the current one but first need to get some sort of cash coming from the current visitors.

    Anymore suggestions anyone?? will probably spend a weekend just on this site to get it perfect and pulling me in at least $100 a week.
