    I will guess this will ring true... you are so busy trying to sell.. that you are not loading your end of the deal with value.

    Aside from a sales page to take money.. what exactly are you offering those that you wish to sell to?

    I've been promoting affiliate / CPA offers for a little over 19 years. However, I do things differently than most.

    I heavily promote PPL (pay per lead...lead generation) offers. This is because there is no credit card / purchase required to complete an offer. All a user has to do is fill out a form, so conversion rates are typically much higher compared to offers that require a sale to be made.

    I favor offers that have a make, get or save money benefit to them, as they have overall worked the best. They also tend to have the greatest mass appeal (will be of interest to a large general audience), so the potential exists to produce high volume and they are fairly easy to cross-promote on the back-end.

    Some of the verticals (niches) I have done extremely well with are: education, insurance, loans, debt, credit, mortgage, assistance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc...

    The bulk of the PPL offers that I promote pay $15-$40 per lead, but I also promote offers that pay more and less. You don't want to get too caught up on what an offer pays because how well it converts is just as important. For example, if you have an offer that pays $9, but if it converts at 2X or more of a $20 offer, then it will perform about the same or possibly better. At the same time, if you have an offer that pays $90 and it converts poorly, it may not even be worth promoting.

    I have also done just as good with dating website sign-ups and pretty good with free trial + S/H offers. I also promote a very limited number of offers that are straight sales. For them, mass appeal is still the number one thing I look for and I also look for one of the following...

    1) The product is new and/or novel-unique and you can't purchase it locally or even something similar. I don't waste my time with it once something similar shows up in Walmart.

    2) The buyer can truly get what is being offered at a decent discount.

    3) Solves a house is on fire type problem.

    However, I mainly promote non-PPL offers on the backend.

    Bottom line, it's far easier to get someone fill out a short form than to get them to pull out their credit card and make a purchase. So why struggle with trying to sell this or that, when you can provide free information that users want/need and get paid well doing it.

    Something to think about.

    Try the products that will buy without a second thought like something that burns a very little hole in the pocket of the audience. That way they will not think twice before buying it.

    Well, what exactly have you been doing? How often do you post on your blog? How much traffic does it get? What's your strategy?

    I like your last question and would like to give you an answer for this.


    Because thats exactly the point, how to be different? Why should people buy from you and not another affiliate or kind of person?


    How can you be able to be unique and attract people to your mission.


    The answer is: Define your who.


    Imagine it like this:

    You open a new club and you are always in there because you own that thing. Who are the people you would like to invite into your club? Would you invite just completely everybody or wouldn't you be more happy to be around people who are more like you?


    What I'm trying to say, if you define exactly who and which people you want to attract, you stand out completely and appeal extremely interesting to your custom audience and then they are more likely to buy from you because you are just like them.


    I give another example here:


    I forgot the name but there is an affiliate marketer who is extremely specific in his targeting, he openely advertises this way:
    'If you are a muslim, I can teach you how to make money online'


    I forgot the exact phrase but its an example.



    Therefore if you can target and define your who precisely and speak to those people they feel more attracted.


    You can also target people in an age range for example: You are between 60 and 80 and want to earn more money for your rent, click here


    Also job targeting is possible.
    'You are working as a nurse and now you are looking for a way to earn additional income, then this is for you!'

    okay I better stop here because I'm not good in formulating these example phrases but I hope it was clear enough what I mean here.


    Think about yourself, where are you from, how old are you, what was your old job, why are you doing affiliate marketing now etc.


    This is if done right a good way to completely stand out from the crowd and attract special people who like to buy stuff from you into your business

    Who knows? You did not tell us anything you've done, besides that you have a blog.


    Who are the top bloggers in your niche? How does your blog compare to theirs (in every way, from looks (colors and layout and such) to content?


    People buy from people they like and trust. Does your blog say you're likeable and trustworthy?


    Then, do the products you promote match your blog content? The reason people come to your blog? Do they solve problems your visitors are trying to solve by coming to your blog?


    How many people visit your blog a month?


    How do they get to your blog?


    Do you have an email list?
