    Well there are a lot of potential reasons.

    What is your current strategy to gettting people to your link? Is it through niche blogs?

    Are people actually getting to your blog? If not be creative. SEO, Social Media Marketing or purchase traffic to get them there.

    Are people reaching your blog, but not converting? Then check your SEO. Is it targeted? Is that traffic actually people who will be interested in buying your product?

    Are interested people reaching your blog but still not converting? Then pump up your webpage. There are services here where people will build you better landing pages. Or if you have the skills, do it yourself.

    So there we go :)

    I am sure you will get a lot of answers on question though most of them will be on the line of, "You dont get it" or "You didnt work hard enough". I am guessing you already knew that !


    Now for some constructive advice,

    You didnt give a lot of details in your post. Who is your target audience and what are you trying to sell them ? The next thing u probably need to increase is ur traffic ! Try to push your traffic to 10k visits a day ATLEAST if you want any significant amount of money going to your bank !

    and remember, You make money by selling people stuff or making then do things that make u money !

    Hope this helps.

    maybe your problem is you don't target people on social media.

    the odds are that you are not working hard enough. internet marketing is HARD work man. the invisible higher powers of this world will not allow you to succeed unless you make large sacrifices and work extremely hard. nothing is free in this world.

    Maybe you should get someone to critique your site? Selling requires upbeat, attention grabbing content with calls to action. You can't just say, "this product is good for doing that, click here to purchase". If you are sending them directly to the CJ offer, try to bring them to your site first where you give some kind of minor consumer report and a short and sweet sales pitch with a call to action to visit the sales page of the CJ offer. This is called a pre-sale/pre-hype, what ever you want to call it. If the CJ offer sales page is weak, then your pre-sale page needs to be more of a sales page with multiple calls to action, ask them questions and make them say "yes" multiple times. This will get them into that "yes" mode which will convert to a sale because they can't find a reason to say, "no".

    Your site has only been online for a month. Honestly, that is not a lot of time. If it were that easy, EVERYONE would be rich. I got my first sale from CJ two weeks and didn't get ANY sale for 5 months. I almost gave up but the big G ranked me high again. Don't know what happened. I guess its sandboxed or danced or whatever people call it here. After 7 months, I finally got another check.

    Do lots of reading, study your competitors, and implement. Rinse and repeat.

    To be successful at anything, you need to work hard and long enough. One month of work may not necessarily produce positive results. Stick to what you are doing but at the same time try some traffic generating methods.
