Default Traffic not backing out

So I got this email today from one of my AMs about traffic I was sending to an email submit offer:

The advertiser has come back to us to let us know that the traffic you?ve been sending to XXXXXXX has not been backing out for them. We have to ask you to stop running the offers as of EOD Friday August 8th.

I know this is common, but is there anything I can do or say to keep this thing alive. Let's be real, I gotta imagine the majority of the people arent going to take the 10 surveys, complete the offers and submit all the info for the free offer.

I always thought the email (and the users interest in the offer) alone was enough to justify the $1.50 payout...

Anyone have any insight to the matter? Coach, being you are on the 'network' side of things nowadays...

Really pissed cuz this offer was doing anywhere from 20-40 profit a day :-/

dang, you were making 20-40 per day on an email submit? Were you doing direct to merchant or poll?

This does happen. You can't stay in their program though, they made their decision and the traffic just isn't working for them. What you want to do in the future is stay under everyone's radar.

How many clicks were you sending per day to this one?

well it was across a bunch of their offers, id say 3k-4k a day (so paying 30 - 40 bucks) and conversions were low, but at a penny per impression, it was profitable...

I had a one field submit that was net over $100/day. it just got turned off
Only had it running for about 2 weeks.

Cant find anything like it on any other networks, which btw, is the first thing you should try to do. Use offer vault and aff spy and then look at all your networks one by one.

how do you make these work? can you reveal the offer since it is now gone? I have tried a few of these and lost money. Any insight is appreciated We are a small group here.

I cant reveal the offer yet, as I am still searching for a replacement and am going to see it one can be built for me.

I currently have a dozen plus one fields working. Most are tiny. Like perhaps $5/day net. So for some this is too small to even try.

I have tested dozens of more offers that have failed on conversions or just had so little traffic that it wasnt worth the tracking time.

Doing these is VERY time consuming for the revenue I am getting. I spend hours each day monitoring spend/conversions/bids/net.
This doesnt even count getting new offers running.

I am using top level keywords only - from 3-20 keywords max per test. Normally only 1 or 2 keywords produce.

Try more than one traffic network. Actually, you should probably test every campaign on every network available. I have spent more on traffic in the past 2 weeks than in the past year or so.

Try more than one cpa network.

As soon as you start getting conversions ask for a bump.

Make sure the landing page is just right on target for your audience.

I just went to offer vault and randomly started looking at offers.
Here is one that I would never try as I think this landing page is not that great:
http://www.consumerexpressions.com/m....cfm?ref=31407

Here is one that is nice and worth testing:
http://www.yourproductsamples.com/Ra...d861?sud=12910
This was randomly sleceted just for this example and is only from a cpa network that I have never heard of. So I have not tested offer.

Hope this helps..... now just dont bid me up and steal my only ones left.

PS, if you have success please say so.
