    Hi everybody. I have +50.000 followers scattered over many tumblr accounts; basically I'm spamming the shit out of them.

    However...it seems that everything I try brings nothing but failure. Here's what I've tried so far:

    -Crakrev with PPL offers: Started really good, but got kicked afterwards of those offers (luckily I wasn't banned) due low converting traffic.
    -Crakrev with PPS offers: +2500 clicks = 0 sales.
    -Plugrush: Really good with mobile redirects (4-5USD/1000) but started went down...now they pay 2USD/1000 and going down.
    -Juicy ads: Tried their redirects, started good, but now they don't even sell a single redirect!
    -Exoclick: Low paying redirects (1/1000).
    -Income from popunders, plugs, etc. it's not even worth mentioning.

    What I do basically is put a caption like: "hey! this girl is getting naked on cam for free! stop wasting time and go there Now!" followed with a link to the offer/site and always link in click through. People actually go to the offer/site, but I fail to convert them in buyers.

    So...what am I doing wrong? It might be just that this traffic source sucks?

    Thanks.

    Maybe you should increase your traffic. How many unique visitors you have monthly ?

    60.000 uniques/mo and that's making me 4 USD/day now.

    I've been banned a lot; it's just that I keep creating accounts.

    One thing that works is to set a dummy blog and reblog from the other accounts. This way blogs survive way longer.

    It's not easy to convert cams, but you can try sending traffic to your own white label cam site so that way you don't need a cookie to be set.

    What content do you have on your pages?

    Gifs different from the gifs in the tumblr blogs, however I think it doesn't matter, because I'm redirecting all the mobile traffic.

    I'll look into the white label site. Thanks.

    I've been doing this method since about May and I've noticed that Plugrush seems to be the best. I've been pretty steady around $2-$3/1000 but it does fluctuate up and down a lot. I used to have click through links on only half of my posts out of fear of getting banned, but recently started doing them on every post and noticed my earnings jumped up to $3-$4/1000.

    It really comes down to the traffic from tumblr is not super for conversions. If you are directing traffic to a self-hosted site try working on on page SEO. If you're not doing a self-hosted site yet, it might be worth trying as you might get a little better conversion rate because you can run multiple ad campaigns and let your traffic decide what they want.

    Question yourself this. If you were on tumblr and saw that message, will you fall for it? no because you already know it's spam and fake.

    Try thinking outside box by doing something no one else is doing. It requires a little creative thinking and testing but it'll be worth it at the end. I know you've been told this a lot of times but it's a MUST when it comes to adult dating. You have to be innovative to convert them because they already know that everyone and their mom is using this method.

    Why not make your own adult website and sending traffic there? Posting affiliate links on tumblr is just a bad idea you will get banned fast,if you redirect to your own site then you shouldn't have many problems.

    You're right. The above was just an example. Actually I'm using something simpler, yet effective that I came up with after thinking "Will I click on this"? This is always a very important piece of advice.


    I already did that (the mobile redirects are on that website) and you still get banned, but not as quick as direct affiliate links.

    I've got some nice ideas already here, which I'll check later when I have a little more time. Thanks!

    I've been doing it for the past couple months. I think the reason I haven't been banned is I'm sending them to an actual website with content and not just an affiliate offer.

    The simple click-thru via affiliate link has never worked good for me in ANY niche.

    One way from which you can succeed with this type of traffic is to link like for exqample Tumblr Blog -> "Cam/Datim Review Site" -> Advertiser

    For me, all the difference to converting is in the "Cam/Datim Review Site" site. Site needs to look legit and you can do very simple things like use an animated JQuery Bar plugin showing data of "% of female users" or "% of successful hookups" etc...

    This way, the Review site will start ranking on Google and you will convert via organic traffic as well.

    Is this mostly international traffic or what? How many visitors are you getting to your offer page daily? I may be able to help you earn more money, get in touch with me.
