    Can you guys who are doing YOUTUBE + CPA help me on this...

    So I have some videos...iPhone related and promoting a CPA offer with Iphones...
    Uploaded about 70 vids...they get a steady stream of traffic...and I get about 10clicks/day from those videos.

    However there are 0 conversions and I have over 50 clicks (actually I have more than 50 clicks, but I have 50 clicks from the US alone).
    I checked the type of traffic the offer accepts....everything is according to the rules...
    have a redirect with double meta refresh in the index file of the domain name...

    What may be the cause?

    Thanks for your advice brothers in arms...

    Promoting normal CPA offers through YT is waste of time. it is like 30-100 clicks 1 conversion.

    Maybe that offer is not converting well with your traffic.Try out different offers or split test with other cpa networks

    well...I don't want to accuse someone without being sure...maybe it's not their fault.
    i mean the aff manager seems ok, the network seems big...

    fine...i'll do it...it's neverblue...

    again, they seem decent and respectable people, but not having one conversion from 50 clicks of very relevant traffic is strange to say the least...
    maybe there's something I'm missing...

    It's possible the offer isn't converting with your traffic or CPA network related issue. The best thing to do is to try another network and see how they compare.

    OP promoting iPhone offers on youtube is hard because there is so much competition for that keyword but for sure you can make this offer convert maybe you should let us know what steps have you taken to make it rank.

    Email submits don't convert on YouTube.

    Just don't mess with them you'll get 50+ clicks a day and only 2-3 conversions at best. Plus everyone kinda knows those iphone offers are complete Sh*t.

    one more thing you will most likely get shaved on email submits bcoz there was a post in detail on this forum why most likely email submits get shaved badly.

    the easiest way to find out if you are being shaved, is to get the same or similar offer from another CPA network and see the results for it

    It's not. 50 clicks is nothing. Wait until you have more data.

    50 clicks are nothing, if it's email submit, don't even think that they'll convert after the emails. Usually they convert after they've submitted a bunch of quotes and shit like that.

    As for iphone offers you need to understand a few things

    *99% of the people on the net have seen them and have been spammed to near death with those offers

    *You must be mentally challenged to fill the offer in good belief that you might actually win something

    *The network "might" shave, meaning they cut your % of conversions even further.

    So in general it looks like this (ill make it simple)

    A offer that looks like a scam, has been seen by most people on the internet xxx times, gets 50 clicks, only counting US combined with networks shave = not going to happen
    You are lucky if you get maybe 1 out of 250 or so, it is hard to find "challenged" people these days.

    my 2c on the iphone spam (and others like it)
