    This was my first real try with CPA and although I had high expectations, I got only 31 clicks and 0 conversions.

    I created this fake news site & published "Justin bieber arrested" h.t.t.p.://news.ali-office.c.o.m/justin-bieber/ (delete dots)
    Created nice photoshoped image with bieber beeing arrested
    Made article about this topic
    Created video with professional voiceover
    Made video stop at 15sec & pop up content locker, so it must be filled to watch the video till the end
    Purchased some tweets from pay4tweet, 2 of them had close to 40RT's
    Joined many Biebers fan groups at facebook, posted link there.
    Still, got only about 600 visits, 30 clicks on offers and no conversions.
    Where did I go wrong? I realy think that this was great idea.

    I used C.P.A.Leads's content locker.
    Maybe C.PA.Lead ripped me off and faked real clicks / convertions?

    Low quality traffic.
    Also don't jump to conclusions after having only 30 clicks. It may just be bad luck.

    He doesn't mean just the source. Often Justin Bieber fans are young children with no money. For example, adults interested in insurance policies would be worth alot more money than your stereotypical Justin Bieber fan.

    I don't need money from them, just one completed survey / email submit.

    Your visitors might not be willing to do such things as they're just looking for a quick look at a picture. You need to make sure they're motivated for the content. However as previously stated, 30 visitors definitely isn't something to judge your page by!

    When you get 5000 clicks and no conversions then something must be wrong but yet we cannot tell.

    ithink that idea indeed is really good people might be able to bite it but the content locker pops too early maybe let them get engage a litttle more 15 sec is too early or let them read the article and make the content locker pop when they click play but on the article talk about the video and exitin and how they should watch it and mention how on minute 2:23 or so he gets slap or idk some bs but convince them that they should watch the video nomatter what.

    also i think u need way more traffic to see whatz working maybe upload a couple videos to youtube with catchy titles and the thubnail of justin beiber getting arrested and water mark it with you site but mention that youtube dosn't allow that they much watch it on you site idk just my 2cents man good luck.

    ps. justin beiber fans are spam to death with bullshit like that maybe is that too trying another artist might convert better idk is all about try and error.

    Try a different content locker. I'm not sure if ******* has it but you should try a locker with GEO rotation.
