    I'm looking for advice about a site I made. It's not making a cent :-(

    So I must be doing something wrong.

    I just want to honestly know how bad the site is?


    Thanks in advance

    ps. Please don't beat me up to bad. I worked hard on this.

    But I need to face the fact that something is wrong. Because all of you are making thousands a day. And I'm making nothing :-(

    Getting targeted traffic to your money site is all about cpa in a nutshell. So learn that. BTW, you'll find plenty of content regarding this on BHW and there are many related shares too. Get those soon and work upon them. I believe that it takes time to really generate good traffic sources for your CPA campaigns, I too am working hard on that, and am willing to give time to my efforts to work.

    If any CPA company expects fastest results from me, and if I cannot deliver it, then there are always other avenues open. I'll go my own way, will do the hard work only whitehat way, and when I am able to deliver, I will deliver quality results. That's the way how I look at CPA -- so it doesn't create so much anxiety for me! I never allow any one to push me, but I always push myself hardest. I hope you get the points! :) The money DOES COME to you if you set the right types of goals and work sincerely towards meeting them.

    HTH. :)

    Yes defintly. there are many resources here I make some money from cpa on verge of scaling up though. You need some money to get things going unless you write alot of articles or do some blackhat way.

    Try Ppv. Or make a website with good keywords and make alot of good content. Also buy some social bookmarking, maybe make video on your site, build back links up. Its not a fast way unless You have alot of money to invest to get things going quicker.

    hope this helps! to the Top!!:work:

    lol man i made a page similar to this not to long ago. i blackhatted all kinds of traffic to it but i got hardly any click-throughs. lots of impressions but hardly any clicks. maybe try marketing your site to a younger crowd maybe 18-30 yrs old. maybe try doing something that would draw attention to your site for college students. hope it works out for you it looks like you have a nice start

    Not beating you bad! lol Actually the site looks good to me. :)

    My 2 cents (hope these 2 cents begin a downpour soon of the actual kind! ;)):>>>

    1. May be, your call-to-action button should be placed "above the fold" also.

    2. May be, there should be "something" more just below the line that says:

    Please Continue To Send In Your Testimonials And Receive a Special Report worth $$$$Thousands

    ---------------

    What else, hmmm...

    :)

    I'd have said your top graphic is a little misleading. I'd imagine you've got that from another site or a template.

    How does getting a free laptop/iPad/Macbook/iPhone relate to your slogan "unless you a prepared for success", your slogan implies business and money-making, that's where I think it originally comes from.

    It sets the whole thing off on a strange angle.

    The photos are a great idea, but I personally think that when people go to great lengths to get their URL photographed to add authenticity in the way you have it looks suspect. Ok I've been in the game for 5 years, so I'm very aware of all the tricks of the trade, but all those URL snaps are a bit too much for me. Not to mention the many many people in your photos hiding their faces. What's up with that? Either pixel/shade out a face, but don't hide it.

    As a psychology major, a person hiding their face or eyes when trying to promote something, is literally hiding something. People will subconsciously attune to this without even realising it and instantly you have lost their trust without them having read anything. 99% of people, especially those that may click through, see photos first and read text only if they have to or they think they need to. I didn't think I needed to read the text.

    I also mainly think the long long main page, with testimonial after testimonial is a far far far too saturated method unless you have an awesome supply of very gullible traffic. Not only that every other site that has that testimonial format, normally has a PAY HERE button on the bottom.

    Therefore, you need people who have NEVER seen this format before, otherwise that's what they'll be expecting at the bottom of the page. I was expecting that.

    I think you should perhaps start to think differently about how you generate your leads for CPA. In this day and age unless you're very lucky it's purely a numbers game.

    Employ any of the myriad of methods you can find here on pushing as many people as you can to your site. Don't just try and emulate exactly what other people do. Be a trend setter, come up with the tweaks and ideas yourself. That's the true mark of a money-maker. Being original in a landscape of copycats. People will not spoonfeed you their golden ideas, it's a bastard but you have to have sit down, put yourself in the "mark's" shoes and think what would make you want to click through. Try not to view it as a money-maker, but make yourself a bimbo American housewife for a few hours and work out what makes you tick.

    Even if you have to employ some very underhand tatics to generate traffic, as long as you have rock solid CPA company behind you, who approve of what you do, they'll pay you as long as you make them money.

    In a simple sentence: What you're doing is far too tired. It's identical to trillions of other pages I have seen, except you have gone to the effort of photographing URLs and putting MacBooks on a Benz!

    I know some of what I have said may seem harsh, but I wish someone would have been harsh with me the first year I started, I could have got to where I am now, much faster.

    As they say, what don't kill you, only makes you stronger.

    I sincerely wish you the best of luck mate.

    Everybody thank you very much for your honesty. You've motivated me to go back to

    the drawing board and take a completely different direction.

    When you do maybe start a twitter campaign or head over to youtube. Now these traffic sources aren't the most targeted, but if you can hit a majority of people with something shiny, they go lady gaga over it. lol All I'm saying is that you can get good traffic, but it better be something worth advertising to them, and maybe nothing more than an email submit.

    Having a testimonial style selling page and then leading the consumer to a page filled with aff links just does not make any sense to me.

    Instead just put your aff links on the actual sales page... and refine it a bit and make it flows so that you hit 2 birds w/ one stone.

    Explain to your traffic that in order to receive these free goods they must do _________ this action. Misleading your traffic into a wall of aff links isn't going to do jack for conversion, just be honest and upfront and you'll probably get more conversions.

    I think facebook, twitter, and craiglist are good free/cheap sources of traffic for this type of offer.
