Question When is an offer bad?

Ok i have been at this for 4 months now dropped almost $600 dollars and made $50.25.

Now the longest of my time has been spent learning how to make effective landing pages. My average ctr for my campaigns is around +/- 15%.
Most are 10% and my highest are 28%.

My problem comes down to no conversions. Are my offers just bad as in i can get them to the offer page but the offer itself just wont convert? Im at a loss for words and incredibly frustrated with it. (Not to the point where i will quit)

I have made sure my LP's reflect the offer as best as i can. And im bidding on url's that fit the audience (Well at least i think they fit).

If anyone has any advice or tips or hell even wants to review some of my old campaigns that i have grown frustrated with, well you could just consider me tickled pink.

Thanks for your time and the read.

Well, knowing many networks, if you are running an email submit, you can be shaved left and right.

The reason is, PPV traffic doesn't convert very well on the back end of email submits, so advertisers that feel that they need to shave you, will shave you.

But you should still see a couple of conversions, I would be surprised if your conversions are at dead zero.

dont drain too much money on same offer if its not converting, $600 can test many many offers.
how many offers have you tested?

I spend anywhere from 4$ to 10$ on an offer. So that 600 hasnt gone into just one offer. When i first got started i did blow through my first 100$ pretty quickly. On 2 offers but i chalked that up to a learning experience.

Off the top of my head i have probably run 30 something offers i think. The 600 isnt in money spent on running offers but total including website fees. Counting just offer money spent to run ads i have probably spent 300$ for ads. Ill have to sit down and do the math.

I'm guessing it would be beneficial to get with a few affiliate networks and see which offers might be converting better? Or less shaving as you put it.

try higher paying leads, like dating, loans, insurance, jobs ect they dont tend to shave as hard. even the pro's struggle with email submits, the payouts are low, and they shave like crazy, you would have to get awsome conversions to profit.

or try capturing emails then redirecting to relevent cpa, then you build a list and get a few conversions at same time, could be good for long term profits

you might want to morph some of those into fan club method camps. as stated above, if you were list building you may at least have a solid asset under your belt by now. search this forum for "fan club method" and keep posting your questions bud. way to stick with it though!
