    Hey guys.

    I need your help because I am about to give up.

    I can bring nice traffic with youtube but it doesn't converts well for me.


    CPA i am using is mgcash(incentive network)

    1)Try #1
    Direct linked incentive offer(US only).

    Everyday I was getting aprox 1k clicks from US but only like 10 conversations which brought me about $7.5

    EPC: $0.01 :(

    2)Try #2
    Content locker

    Got 2-3k clicks from US and made only about $3

    Conversion: 1%

    About 2k other country clicks - SMS lock made me $1

    ============================================

    So what do you guys think I am doing wrong?
    Also which network is best for content locking by your opinion?

    All advices apperciated.

    Cheers.

    its conversion not conversation! :p

    Anyways.. try promoting offers for a change. Say you find a relevent product. Make videos related to it or upload related videos and link affiliate site in description.

    I've give you a example. Some of our affiliates they make a demo of our product or they use our demos.. upload the videos and watermark them and also put there affiliate links in description and target decent keywords and they do pretty well.

    For example they put a lot of videos about autoblogging and then link to us. Users searching for autoblogging see the videos like the video and click the link. We have a ton of affiliates doing that. :) ... they do approx $0.30-0.40 a click because its targeted traffic!

    Hope that helps!

    Well, I'm sure it's common knowledge but CPA networks tend to shave off a huge part of your income.

    I've heard of people setting up their own tracker for Amazon and they found out that one or two thirds of their income was unaccounted for. Not sure how to do that, but I'm sure a lot of people here do.

    Or you could just get a worldwide offer and hire some microworkers to click on it and see what the profit disparity is. Worldwide because microworkers tend to lie about where they're located so they can get hired for higher paid country-specific offers.

    Wish I could offer more help but I loathe CPA, even though I know people make big money with it.

    The CPA network can provide you with the actual conversion rates for the offers you are running network wide, this may give you a better idea of where you stand and if its something else that may be causing the low conversion rate. Talk to your account manager.

    maybe you should look at the offer you are promoting plus where the traffic is coming from for the content locker... and what is been presented to the traffic...im no expert but these are things i will look at first if i were in shoes while waiting for more informed suggestions...good luck

    Thanks guys I've edited thread title :D

    @d_nov

    Yeah that was also my thinking that they could shave me.

    They are pretty small network so who knows what are they doing.Maybe shaving like 90% leads.

    I am suspecious because always when i start campaign i immediately get 1 conversion but then for a long time nothing.

    Well I'll try my luck with leadbolt and dollarade and see what was the problem.

    Because I saw in youtube section guys were making $500+ daily with almost same method I use.

    Hope it was only network's fault because in old times 1k US clicks earned me around $500 not fucking $7.5

    Yeah I have had the similar experience with MGCash too...the file would load but my conversions are not good. But I am not sure whether the network is shaving or if just really not that many people clicking on my ads. But I really have no way of tracking my conversions.
