    I've been working with adworkmedia for about a week now and have been having TERRIBLE conversion ratios. I'm going to let you know which niche and method that I'm using so maybe you can help me out and advise me as to what I should change. I'm going to change my niche of course so I figured it wouldn't hurt me at all to tell you.

    I have a couple of videos for both a minecraft niche and a youtube subscription bot. I get about 25 impressions a day, anywhere from 5-15 clicks a day, and maybe a lead every two days, sometimes once a day.

    I'm not suprised since I just started and I thought it means I just need to scale up but when I went to my all time stats I found something seriously wrong. I have 615 total impressions, 102 clicks, and 4 leads!

    I'm also pretty good on ranking videos I can usually get them to the 1st or 2nd page when the competition is low-medium in under a week.

    Here is my method: I upload my video to youtube, it'll just be me showing the fake program, then at the end of the video I will say check the description for the download link. In the description I just put like DOWNLOAD HERE - (My adworkmedia link locker link) and if they complete a download/survey then they get taken to mediafire.com

    I have no problem getting impressions, however my clicks and leads are extremely low...

    I think my conversion rate might be bad because most of the people who would be searching for my keywords are kids who are under 12 years old therefore they would be more reluctant to complete a survey/download.

    Would you agree with my theory as to why my conversion rate is so low? If you have anything else to add let me know please!

    Thanks!

    What is your epc? Where does your traffic come from?

    Reyone is right.. 4% is not bad.. If you want to earn more keep the traffic cumming..

    Btw, I have the same niche with you and my cr is 5-7% also worked for awm..

    Some Tips: Use the link locker theme with download button, use some instructional message on your link locker.. Goodluck

    I've gotten one lead that was worth $2.05 and then the rest of the leads are worth about $.40 or less.

    I clearly state that the traffic is from youtube, mulitple times.

    And all you need to do is divide the leads by the clicks to find out the conversion ratio...

    Hmm.. What I would do is change networks and see if it increases the CR.
    Sometimes you get $10 using network A while at the same time you could get $15-20 using network B.
    Basically you have to test, test and again, test.

    Also, why not try using a content locker on a website? A unique high quality appealing website can improve the results a lot!

    Try your own website or change cpa network.
    I'm in a similar niche and I use a PPD network, not a CPA network and with the same impressions I would get 3-4 times more leads.

    And I find teenagers more likely to fill a survey than adults - they don't value their time

    Epc is not conv rate. and I'm talking about countries when I ask where the traffic is coming from.

    Lately my conversion ratios have been pretty poor with Adwork Media. Thankfully, after optimizing the available offers for the gateway, my conversions have increased 300%. Yesterday I had 47 clicks and 9 leads, netting me $8.10. Today so far I have 7 clicks and 1 lead, giving me $1.25. How did I do this? I went to the offer's no-show list and added every single offer to it. From there, I sorted the no-show offers by country and then removed offers from the no-show list for each country that had the highest PERSONAL EPC. Then see what the top performing offers are (sort by EPC) and add some to countries that you haven't already added many offers to. Otherwise your gateway will be feeding people poorly performing offers and possibly ones that don't even work. Also, make sure your content is 100% locked. Make it so that the file, or whatever content you're working with, is redirected to after the gateway is completed. There are tons of people who have adblock and will never see these gateways, so try putting a locked link on your page so you you can monetize those people too. If you're doing anything less than this, then people can easily bypass gateways to get to their content.

    Take a look if you're using Email submits in the Content Locker. They're converting very bad and shouldn't be used anymore. Normal CR's about them are 2-3%.
