I've never had any success direct linking. I've also never had much success with email submits other than a few dollars. I now see why they recommend using offers that pay more than $4.

i'd definitely recommend you try adding audible calls to action using iframes for some of those offers. but my first question is how many targets are you testing and are you letting each target run to ad spend of just the entire campaign?

jeff is right, dl for low payouts can be tough. it can be done, but it's tough. a lot of it depends on the site traffic. if the site get's a ton of repeat visitors and you're direct linking a standard offer, chances are many of the visitors may have already seen the offer and either taken action or are now "blind". make sense?

I've been switching over to LPs a lot more lately.

I think with the increased competition in CPV as of late - people are used to see all of the main offers we run direct linked.

Come up with your own angle and run offers that way.

If advice is being sought, I'd contact my manager from each traffic network and ask about what kind of offers work well with their traffic.

With Linksador, I don't get much traffic, but the traffic does convert well once an offer is dialed in. With that said, I still have $60 left in my account from the original $200 I put in last January.

With DirectCPV, make sure you've done all the research possible to find out about their traffic and what is popular with their traffic. Also find out about the kind of pop ups you are paying for: are they pop overs, pop unders or interstitials? With each type, you need a different strategy to make them convert, especially with interstitials (hint).

Yea, I pretty much quit direct-linking. I was popping over a simple zip submit auto insurance offer, sent about 150 views and had 0 conversions so that pretty much had me quit that. If users on car sites aren't willing to enter a 5 digit zip code, then I gotta try something else to get them. Perhaps a car fan club or something would do much better.

Auto insurance, at least to me, seems to be a very wide market, at least from a CPV perspective. They either already have it or don't think they need it. Finding the right market with the right URL could be frustrating at best.

With that said, I am sure somebody has cracked it and knows how to work it!

i've done well with auto insurance in the past. it's one of the rare times that i go direct and bid on the obvious .. margins weren't super high, but it was profitable. i've been playing with the idea of mini-courses "10 Money Saving Tips For 2010" - an email list of course would do great around new years (trust me) , but could be used year round with a few spins. great time to toss in your auto insurance offers
