I'm trying to promote some dating affers through Adwords. I know Adwords is insanely competitive, but I have had big successes with it in the past. And anyhow, my results are so horrible that there must be something else going on here other than that.
Now, I'm mostly promoting CJ based dating programs, like Match.com. In fact, I am trying to do similar to the top Adwords site for dating (they must be spending like 100k every day!). I'm not sure I'm allowed to say their name, but they're always at the top in nearly every dating related search. They're also an affiliate site. I'm doing the same review site, with top rankings etc.
My problem is that... drumroll... after spending close to 600 dollars, I haven't been able to make a single sale. I mean, I know that those affiliates have a huge advantage over me (they don't use CJ to begin with - they have special partnerships with all those big dating sites) so I know I'd never be profitable in the start. But ZERO sales?
My clickthrough rate is around 40-50% and I do get some free signups (which don't pay) that never convert into actual sales.
Do any of you guys have dating affiliate tips / ideas?
