    Okay, I'm pretty new to CPA.

    This is my method:

    I have a FB page with a hot girl and some pics and horney guys, it went viral about 3-4 months ago now i get about 50 or so req's per day

    The other day i created a new Fan page, I have about 200 members on it so far.. but I didnt spend much time marketing it to make it grow i was just testing it out.

    from my fan page I send people to my Bit.ly links, I also monitor which links people click using bitly

    So far:

    From Facebook to my main page: 90 clicks
    1 Conversion (freebie)

    My main page is a "video site" only I use video's of the same girl that is on my FB page.


    Out of those 90 clicks. about 20 actually clicked on one of the video posts.

    4 People actually click on the "offer link" required (using a gateway) to watch the video.

    1 Person Converted.

    My EPC is like 5 cents or something stupid low.

    1% Conversion sucks .. is that normal? I need to get A LOT more traffic, clearly.. but damn 1%?

    I always assume a low ctr when making projections. You need to get that fan page up to about 10k.

    1% isnt really that bad. Honestly. A conversion is a conversion. It shows promise. Some days 1% can turn into 5%, some days 0.5%. The good thing about facebook accounts is you can leave then be, and just let them run. If they dont get reported/deleted, you will have residual income forever. Make another account now, and another.

    True, 1% sucks but you only had 90 clicks so far so you can't really tell if that trend is persistent.

    Just keep trying, dont calculate CTR for small nulbers <100, try doing it for every 1k clicks or so. That should give you a pretty good idea of your conversion rate

    Well said, when I started off I used to have a conversion of 1 lead every 150 or so clicks but after I started driving some traffic, everything changed. I'm currently at 10.04% CTR ;)
