After reading a lot in these forums I decided to jump into the affiliate world, however after one month I am having 0 results...or to be more precise minuses because none of the advertising is converting. I will summarize the steps I did...please tell me where I could be making errors...
1. Selected 6 different offers from clickbank, from medium to high gravity. 3 from forex systems and 3 from weight loss programs. Analyzed them too in cb-analytics, all seems to be going strong and converting good for affiliates.
2. Purchased a domain and installed proaffiliatethemes. I built two landing pages, one for the forex, another for the weight loss programs. Both in review stye format so I can little describe the programs and place the affiliate links when the visitors arrive
3. Purchased CPC from 7search and Bing. I did PPC in the past so I am kind of familiar with targeting the words, phrases, the avg CPC I was getting was 0.10 to 0.20 using 400 targetted keywords for both pages (forex and weight loss)
4. ALso purchased traffic from sitescout using banners for the different clickbank offiers. Here despite targeting specific theme related websites the CPC is high, 0.40 to 0.60 ...I guess the banners are not very good with the CTR. Some banners were vendor provided, others I designed.
After one month the result is 803 visitors for the 3 programs and 0 conversions. I was expecting low conversion like every 200 o 300 visitors 1...but really after 800 and 0 conversions I must be doing something wrong
Attached the stats from clickbank.
I was also looking at the other networks who offer affiliate programs...but I read that clickbank is usually easy to get started with, at this point I dont know
Any help or input will be highly appreciated!
