    i dont understand how i get 300 clicks for an email submit and ZERO conversions. and the network EPC for the offer is 16 cents. I now learned that twitter traffic sucks ass. I tweet cpa offers, i do not direct message since i heard that bans accounts quickly. Any tips on tweeting CPA offers? lets talk please. i will appreciate any help. thanks

    I discovered this the hard way, but some people have had success with twitter, I guess it depends on what niche you use or how you go about monetizing.

    You aren't doing it right. How can you say Twitter traffic sucks after only 300 clicks?

    You sent 300 clicks to one offer?
    Rotate, change, twist, tweak etc. then you can make valid conlusions.
    Nevertheless I don't have much success with twitter either :D

    Are you sending them directly to the offer with no landing page? If you are then it's because there is tons of bots that hit any link you put out.

    For example put up a content lock you will see clicks drop drastically because no bots will be clicking anything after hitting your page.

    I agree, twitter traffic is not good for CPA. Try it with Adsense.

    If you are getting hundreds of human clicks from Twitter to your site, you have won half the battle. Twitter is well known not to be good for sales conversions. Perhaps you should monetize the traffic to build up site visits for Alexa purposes, or to fan views to pages where you have CPM ads or paid articles.

    Twitter has proven to have some of the lowest conversion rates in the industry. I haven't read up on it much, but it's probably because users of Twitter are so exposed and immune to marketing tweets. You'll have to be more creative.

    By creative, I mean, here's an example I read about one time:
    A guy created Twitter profiles that were supposed to represent the "horses" in horse race betting. They were not fan profiles, but profiles posing as the horse/owner themselves. He would build up massive followers, then on race day he would direct his followers to betting and gambling offers and get massive conversions.

    doesnt epc mean per 100? like roman numerals. so that means u should be getting 48cents on average. the offer is probably a dollar at least right?

    Some networks calculate it as just earnings per click. Something good to check on ahead of time.

    What's worked best for me on Twitter is to sell Twitter followers methods, you need to keep it to the same niche if you hope to have high conversions.

    Twitter is so full of marketing tweets,thus people (the real ones duh!) are more or less aware of these..I trust FB traffic more than twitter...

    this is after multiple days of 300 clicks, not just one day
    but, that is not relevant, whats relevant is that twitter traffic is not quality / qualified traffic

    the offer EPC is 16 cents and i am getting 1 cent, thats terrible

    I agree with OP
    Twitter traffic for the most part just isn't reliable
    even with a targeted niche, people on twitter, are just fast paced users, (mostly on their smart phones)
