Comission Junction: 1,144 clicks- 3 sales

I am running around 10 - 15 different CJ affiliate program links.

I have gotten 1,144 clicks, but generated only 3 sales. That seems a little suspicious to me.


My traffic is mostly organic search traffic from google / yahoo. A small amount from referral and social.


Can comission junction be trusted? I suspect they are shaving conversions.



Thanks for any insight.

Best,

Peter

    Hey Peter,

    I am not one to agree to, or say anything bad about a particular network. Although it is a bit weird to drive that much traffic and get such few sales, there must be some changes on your end that you can make to increase your sales and conversions.

    Maybe you can reach out to another affiliate that you know is promoting the same offer as you, and see if they have had similar experiences?

    Hope this helps you out!

    Some Commission Junction programs do not pay out until a certain day of the month. Happens to me all the time. Look up the program and see when the payouts are. I was pissed at commission junction, over 100 clicks and no sales (it was a pay per lead offer!) and then looked at the program, and saw they paid out on the 10th. When the 10th came, I had $450.

      More likely the issue is with the offer(s) or your advertising methodology than the network. CJ is reputable. They're a pain to deal with mind you, but reputable.

    CJ is a reputable Network. Now you're running 10 - 15 different links or offers? It would help to know what offers you're running. And all from SEO?

    Lots could be going on. Could be your sales copy or funnels.

    Do you have Google Analytics on your site? If not, add it. A good analytics script will tell you what's going on on your site. In addition, a good click/tracking conversion script will tell you if then network is likely to blame.

    Please check out the keywords people search and find your landing page; keywords like how to buy... Product offer...discount...etc will be effective...check out your offer and don't be tricky with your loyal visitors.
