    I think it is a random list and not a targeted list, that should be the reason.

    Perhaps, the offer is either not enticing enough to click on or maybe they're just not clicking on it. You need to analyze your CTR as well as if that was very low then that would explain the low earnings/commission that you've earned. Also, take into account the number of emails that went to the "Spam" box instead of the inbox. But, I'm going to offer you a few tips that hopefully will help you:

    1. Don't scream "Sign Up Now" in your emails. Be precise and to the point and tell what they would be signing up for instead of the email just being 100% hype.

    2. How are you presenting the offer? Part of the sales process are visuals and within it'self is accountable for a good amount of the sales made by any affiliate or service provider. Design an eye catching email that will "Instantly" grab their attention where they have to keep reading or they feel the need to click on the link contained within to find out more. MadMimi has a great software for building custom emails and also offers affordable rates for mass email sending.

    3. Who are you sending them to? Who's your audience and who is receiving these emails? Perhaps the only reason your earnings are low if you've done the two previous steps that I stated above. Are you sending to opt-ins? Did you buy the emails or did you harvest them yourself? If you were to have the email addresses to 10,000 people who were interested in your offer, you'd earn a lot more than $4 so try to optimize your email list for better conversions.

    I hope this helps and if you need any additional help or information, just send me a Private Message. Good luck! :)

    The best way for a good targeted list is, start a website about your niche, make some good posts and offer some free thinks for giving their emails.

    Well there's your answer. How can you expect an non-targeted email list to buy something they don't want from you?

    Yes, I agree that your audience should be targeted. I mean why would somebody interested in Internet security or Android applications (for example) want to use your dating services. Work on your email list and you should see the results in conversion.

    Mailers have an extremely LOW return rate. With mailers, the general conversion is 1/1000 - or in other words 0.1%

    yea if your just sending out an e-mail and not split testing, this type of shit will happen. You need to split test see what people are responding to then continue.

    0.1% is the correct term for 1/1000

    1% = 1/100
    0.01% = 1/10000
    0.001% = 1/100000
