    I have been ewhoring for a while now and I have a/b tested free signup vs paid signup in an effort to enhance my earnings. I have to say that even though free signups are much easier to convert on, paid signups seem to have a greater revenue yield for me.

    my free signups have been converting at 1:11 vs my paid signups converting at 1:26.

    So for every 26 clicks I receive on free registration I am only seeing $6 and change vs $40 per paid signup on 26 clicks.

    I think it comes down to confidence. If you are confident enough to switch from paid signups vs free registration I think your findings may surprise you.

    The only way to know is to test.

    If you have questions about free reg versus paid testing PM me. I will also let you know what program has converted well for me on paid signup and yielded the most revenue.

    u are 100% right i think.
    I have seen the same thing.
    the deal is that all the companies shave SO BAD on the free signups (I had DG shave 70% of my leads consistently) because to attract aatention and traffic they have to offer $3, $4, $5 per, which they cant really support, so they shave huge, and its a big gamble and risk on THEIR part, and of course they arent in this to lose.
    I have found it works out better to take the paid signup amount, that way THEY have gotten paid, they play no games because they arent really risking anything, they dont shave. My real earnings on traffic is 2X on paid signup vs free signup. Its just harder mentally to look at stats and wait for paids...

    i was thinking of changing from free to sign up with DG but i want to see what my conversion is and i dont see where in the stats it shows me how many of the free joins have converted to paid, if anyone could show me where that would be excellent!
