    As the title says, what kind of CTR do you get?

    I scrape about 1000 tweets per day on my niche, and then do the usual message, i get about 50 clicks out of the 1000 i'd imagine, then about 10 order page hits, then around 1 or 2 sales, depends really. What about you guys? What kind of rates do you see when using tweetattacks or similar software?

    I find it varies enormously depending on niche, tweets, offer etc. But if you're getting 1-2 paid sales from 1000 tweets you're doing exceptionally well compared to most others.

    Yea not too bad i guess. I'm trying to scale up (obviously) and i'm also trying out some CPA offers.

    I'm kind of stumped, I would have thought that CPA offers had a much great conversion rate. I mean it's literally just asking for an email for this one at $0.55 per email, not 1 sign up after 500 clickthrus. I'm really shocked, apparently asking for less somehow leads to less conversions. Go figure.

    Have you had this too? What kind of conversion rate do you get? Don't have to give an example of a niche just looking for some advice on how to optimize.

    I can't convert most paid offers for shit on Twitter with a couple of very targeted exceptions. CC sign ups is a tough sell on Twitter - most people are in browsing (not buying) mode and also a lot of the traffic is surfing on cell phones.

    If you're getting 1:500 on CPAs then either: a) your targeting is off (wrong keywords or too general); b) your CPA offer sucks (shaving / just not a good converter); or c) your ad tweets are off and you're not identifying or preselling your offer very well. My conversions are generally 1:10 - 1:50 for most CPA offers.

    I suppose with this one i am being very broad, but then it's a gift voucher CPA that only needs an email, man people are tight. Looking at it though i would think a lot of people would see it as spammy, the only thing is, if they think of it as spammy why would 500 of them click it? Then when they see the landing page is "enter email here for BLAH BLAH" why wouldn't they do it, how very odd.

    You're right though, I guess I just need to split test it, see where I end up. Its quite broad and generic right now. I guess i'll keep my clickbank one going (as money is money, duh, lol) and i'll test out some different keywords with some different CPAs and see what kind of results I get. Might keep updating this thread with where i'm at actually. Might be helpful to some other people, not sure, hell might just be helpful to me :D
