Default TOP REASON your are NOT making money with CPV

Hi Guys,

Those of you that know me.... know that
I post tips about how to improving your earnings
with CPV traffic.

This tip is completely different.

What is the reason most people DO NOT make
money with CPV??

Simple. Because they do not understand that CPV
is just a tool. CPV is a source of traffic.

What you are doing with CPV... is SALES.

If you are terrible at selling... then you will be terrible at
making money with CPV. Its that simple.

People think... If I just get the right URLs in one campaign..
I'll be set... I will be able to figure it out from then on.
That is not true.
A very good friend of mine started using CPV... (I told him about it)
and before he knew it....
he had lost a considerable amount of money.
He asked for my help...
and he even asked the unaskable... for me to
find him a profitable campaign....
because he was sure that he could take if from there... he just needed a boost.

Being that I introduced him to the evils of CPV... I gave in and helped him...
I build him a campaign where for every dollar he spent he ended up making $1.50.... so if he spent $100... he would make $150.
He was happy... i was happy... and his wife was happier.

The problem was... that this campaign died out... like most campaigns will do.
And much to his frustration.. he was not able to create another profitable one.
I am real good with patterns. So I studied his failure and analyzed the "why" was he not able to create another campaign. Then it hit me.

HE DID NOT KNOW HOW TO SELL.
He went thru the motions of choosing an offer....
and scraping URLs.... and all that..
but inside of him... there was no real direction in what he was doing. Because he lacked the understanding of what a sale is.

So I sent him to salesman school.... well actually had him read up on being a good salesman... plenty of that on the net.
and that helped him a ton. Soon he was creating campaigns that would break even.... it was not profit... but at least he is not losing money.
Eventually he jumped over to the profitable side of things.

so here is my tip to you all.

DO NOT FORGET THAT YOU ARE IN SALES. IF YOU LACK SALES EXPERIENCE READ UP ON IT. UNDERSTAND THE BASICS OF SELLING.
THIS WILL HELP YOU IN THE DESIGN OF YOUR CAMPAIGNS BY GIVING PROSPECTIVE CUSTOMERS WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR.
A lot of people feel that they lack information on CPV.. but that is not true.
CPV is simple.... its the selling that has some figuring out to do.


Hope this helps someone.

Take care and go make money...!!!

I have to disagree with you here. This is affiliate marketing. Marketing is not advertising. Marketing is the ability to find people who ALREADY want your product or service. You might do a little bit of a pre-sell, but you're not trying to be a pushy salesmen.

^ pre-selling is still a part of the sales process, I think his point is still valid about needing to learn about sales.

@virus1 a very good book to tell your friend to buy is Ca$hvertising, a must read for any affiliate IMO.

Good post. You're right in that too many go through the motions but never really turn their brain on. They want a step by step guide to doing everything because god forbid they might have to actually think through a problem to find a solution. It's always easier to copy something then come up with something on your own. Those guys never make it.

You have to be a bit creative and understand sales to make money. It's more then just plugging urls into network with your affiliate link then hoping to make a sale.

I understand you disagree. And that is fine.

We can debate all day long about Marketing, Sales, Advertising etc.
although its beyond the scope of this forum. So I will not touch that subject.

But....
I will address the pushy salesmen concept.

Imagine you were watching TV in the comfort of your own home...
watching your favorite show... and all of a sudden...
a salesman opens your front door and starts giving you
a sales presentation about a product he is selling.
He did not knock.. you did not call him... he just interrupts
your TV watching and tries to sell you his product.
Would you call that salesman ... a pushy salesman??
Most normal people would call him extremely pushy.

but guess what.... that is exactly what CPV does..
we interrupt what the user is doing... and hit them with our popups.
WE ARE PUSHY SALESMEN...
CPV by its very nature is about being pushy.
People don't like to see it that way... but that is how it is.

the good thing about pushy salesmen is that they make more sales.

Take Care

I don't like recommend something I have not read myself.


Thanks... I appreciate it.
