Offer Converting, Now what?

by 14 comments
I have setup a dating campaign from a Peerfly offer and already have it converting pretty consistently. Iím directing traffic from Facebook ads to a landing page, which then links to the offer.

My question is, now that I have it consistently converting, what do I do from here? It is not yet profitable and Iím hovering around the break-even point (maybe even a little lower than that) where I am making back as much money as Iím spending. What should I do from here to start making more money than Iím spending? Any suggestions?

I think this is a winner, but not sure how to lower the cost-per-conversion in the smartest way. Iím hoping you, smarter affiliate marketers can help me out on this one.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

    Well, It can't be tell from the data you gave above.

    If you can answer below questions then I can help you out.

    How many ads copies you have tested so far and running?
    How many landers you have tested so far?
    What is your CTR for the current ad?
    Did you try doing direct linking?

      Yea, sorry for being a little vague. Let me answer the questions, but honestly I havenít done much for optimizing yet.

      How many ads copies you have tested so far and running?
      Tested only 2 ad copies targeting a variety of precise interests. So 2 ad copies for around 10 interest channels (and most are mixed channels)

      How many landers you have tested so far?
      Iíve tested 3 different landing pages with only one version each (so 3 pages tested total)

      What is your CTR for the current ad?
      Strange this is that the CTR for the ad yesterday was 142% and today it is only 15%. Basically only one ad copy/version is accounting for 90% of traffic. Facebook ads are kind of screwy this way. I can setup the same ad and it will get traffic sometimes and sometimes it wonít??

      Did you try doing direct linking?
      Havenít tried direct linking yet because I didnít think FB allows this. Do they allow this?

    It is a good sign if you are hovering around breaking even.

    Take the time and make the push into profits.

    Things you could try.

    - Test a new Ads in hows to get a better CTR.
    - Test a new landing pages page.
    - Test a new offer.

    How many different variations of these things have you tested?

      Yes, I need to test new ads, landing pages, etc. I first need figure out why Facebook ads are so screwy. Iíll post a follow up with the problems Iím seeing.

    That is the right attitude, push everything to the limit.

      Using Prosper202.... just learning it now. Having a hangup trying to use the PHP redirect. It looks like my offers aren't converting this way??? Am I missing something? Where am I supposed to put my affiliate tracking code?

      Here is the PHP:

      <?php

      // -------------------------------------------------------------------
      //
      // Tracking202 PHP Redirection, created on Wed Jul, 2013
      //
      // This PHP code is to be used for the following landing page.
      // my-url.com at Directnic
      //
      // -------------------------------------------------------------------

      if (isset($_COOKIE['tracking202outbound'])) {
      $tracking202outbound = $_COOKIE['tracking202outbound'];
      } else {
      $tracking202outbound = 'http://www.my-url.com/tracking202/redirect/lp.php?lpip=385&pci='.$_COOKIE['tracking202pci'];
      }

      header('location: '.$tracking202outbound);

      ?>

    You need to start doing whatever you can to make it profitable, some ideas:
    Try different ads/images
    Test different landing pages
    Split test between different offers
    Adjust your bids
    Change your targeting

      Awesome, thank you! Trying to do this stuff right now... just having a few hangups learning the best way to track, segment, etc. There are a lot of ways to do this. Also, FB has been a pain in the a$$ with the ads changing their cpc bid amount. I wish someone could tell me why this happens. Same exact campaign will change from .05 per click to 1.20 per click. That makes it more difficult.

      Anyway, thanks for the tips, I'm going to try it all until this mo fo is profitable!!

    If you've got anything showing signs of profiting then you must dig deeper into they "WHY" it worked and expand on that.

    Since I'm new here, I'd like to introduce myself. I am a college student at the moment, studying for computer science and like everyone else on this forum, it seems like we all want the same thing, a successful business. I've dabbled in small jobs (dog walking, lawn work, etc.), but it didn't lead to anything that could expand. For years, I've been searching for ways to start a sustainable business online, but many of my ventures have had little to no success. I've played around with the Nadex platform and traded binary options a bit, but it's just way too risky. Other than that, I've started drop shipping on eBay and that has been my most promising venture so far. Here are my downfalls with my dropshipping business:

    I read a post today on the WF declaring that article marketing was dead. If youíve been on this forum for a while youíve seen this declaration multiple times before. The Warrior said it used to work years ago, but there is no sense in using this outdated bygone strategy today. Let me ask you Ė do people still read articles online? Of course they do and these articles are the lifeblood of some of the most popular web sites on the planet. All publish articles that have outgoing links to further information or the authorís web site. Here are some examples:
