    Hi everyone, I'm pretty much new to CPA and specially to Azoogleads that I've recently joined I'm testing out few offers and running PPC and for this one offer, tryhydrolyze.com I'll bet everyone heard or seen it on tv, I've got over 128 unique clicks and not a single sale on free trial offer? WTF? How could this be possible? Is azoogleads legit? They don't shave like markethealth? Just wondering, someone please advise..

    Welcome to the world of CPA offers. CPA is not as easy as you think, but it is alot easier than affiliate marketing

    CPA marketing isn't as easy as send traffic and make money. There's a lot of testing involved. Try different offers, landing pages, and keywords. Plan to be investing a lot of money before making a sale.

    Depends on the traffic, and that is just an average, not a rule. As in, 200 clicks one day may get you no sales, while 130 the next may get you 2 sales. It's not easy, the biggest PPC advertisers spend a ton of money testing out campaigns. Anyone who doesnt loos money when there starting out in PPC is lucky.

    this is why you failed.

    it's not a bad thing because ppl often lose lots of money through trial and error. once you know what converts, you should have a positive ROI.

    do you have a landing page or do you send your traffic directly to the offer?

    You can blame a lot of this on the economy... Offers that used to convert 1 out of 100 targeted unique visitors are now converting -- if you're lucky -- 1 out of 500 targeted unique visitors.

    Even higher than that on ClickBank crap.

    People are scrolling down and reading the fine print because times are tough. Purchasing things online that you would not normally purchase are considered a luxury now because of the economy.

    That doesn't mean do not test with different landing pages and ads... Of course you want to do that but in this economy to expect to convert even 1 visitor out of 128 into a sale just isn't what the average is right now.

    It's all about targeted traffic. Here is an example for you:

    Person arrives at Google and searches: hydrolyze testimonials

    Think about where that person is in their buying/thought process. They aren't ready to buy...they aren't even ready for a free trial yet. They don't even know if they want the d#mn product yet. They want to know if other people have used it and if it is any good. Even if they arrive at a free trial, they aren't going to sign up (maybe 1 in 500 will) because as I already mentioned, they don't even know if they want it yet.

    Now, somebody else arrives at google and searches: buy hydrolyze cheap

    Think about where this person is at. They WANT the product. They even used the keyword "buy" meaning they are WILLING to pay for it. Imagine they show up at a free trial. Well, 1 in 100 might take advantage of that, because a second ago, they were willing to pay for it and they used the keyword "cheap" which means they are already looking to save a buck.

    See where I'm going with this? All searches are not created equal. You really need to analyze and look at your PPC campaign and think about what each person who searches the phrases you have are thinking when they type that and hit "search".

    As a beginner, try something that doesnt require CC or something, CPA means cost per ACTION not neccesarily sale. Getting someone to sign up to a dating site might be easier than trying to get them to buy a scammy looking diet pill.

    When sending people to offers, having the right landing page on your own end can increase the conversion on the other end.

    for example, a page that is a testimonial about how great you like a product will likely have the clicks convert at a far higher ratio than some sort of cloaked link that the user thinks will send them somewhere else

    (I'm not saying you shouldn't do the send style, as it can be more profitable - just that if you are doing the second style, be prepared for a lower conversion per click)
