    is the offer what they are looking for?

    I tried to use the weight loss niche last year and because the product was over priced and such, no one clicked it either.

    I misread your first post, if you go that many hits on your site and no conversions, something isnt right

    You have to remember, twitter users are passive buyers, generally they are multi-tasking or doing something else so direct conversions is tiny. Twitter is better for building lists, content-locking etc. It is more difficult to identify a twitter behaviour that's in the buy now mindset unless you do very targeted mentions for people within that mindset.

    What exactly is your method? Or least give us an overview so we can discuss, improve and reiterate for your next campaigns. IM is always about improving your methods.

    CPA crap doesn't work on twitter. Twitter is not a direct sales site. Use twitter for social media signal juice to rank your sites

    Are you sure these clicks arent bots?

    Each link posted @ twitter receive around 15 bot clicks.

    twitter is hard to get people to get shit to convert these days. Its best to have a landing page as most have already seen that type of spam.

    Out of these 6000 clicks, over 5000 can be bot hits ( no kidding ).

    Check out your logs, you won't believe - every tom, dick and harry is scraping twitter these days to put it on their sites.

    I beg to differ. CPA does work for Twitter.

    However, CPS has not worked in my experience.

    People are not in 'buying mode' on Twitter. You can entice them to do CPA with the right secret sauce, but not sales.

    Haha... I remember the first time I set up a twitter campaign with CB. I was dancing with joy to see thousands of hops thinking that the flood of purchases was going to follow... then I learned all about bots on twitter... I'm lucky to get one or two sales every couple of months with thousands of hops/day.

    So basically reading everyones posts Twitter is a waste of time unless your trying to get seo juice.Seeing I quit doing SEO on my sites since all the recent updates,looks like I need a new plan.Maybe i'll give tumblr a try.Does tumblr do good with CPA?

    People coming from Twitter are not in the correct mindset to purchase products. They are in a social mindset and are un-targeted.

    draw the twitter traffic into your site by providing value on all levels of your marketing funnel...once they're on your site..then offer the CPA, but make sure you give them plenty of value first so it'll be easier to convert into a successful sale

    They click my links. They even respond back. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Use twitter the way it's supposed to be used and you will do fine. Talk to people. They want to talk or they wouldn't be there. They want anyone to talk to. Ask them how their sick dog is coming along. Show an interest. This is how you use twitter to get sales. It starts off as a random tweet in your feed. Treat it as though you were in the room with thousands of people. Would you stand in a corner for hours and mutter off the url to your site? Or would you work the crowd? Example:
    The random tweet-I don't want to go grocery shopping but I don't have food in the house.
    Me: Do you have bread and eggs?
    Them-yes
    Me-You could make french toast
    Them-That's a good idea! I think I will do that. Thank you.
    Me-You're welcome
    Them-I just saw your website. I love the xx ring.
    Me-Thank you. Everyone loves that ring. It's so pretty.
    -----------
    and the rest is history
