How to profit from paid traffic with no sales?

8 replies
I'm currently promoting some CPA offers with paid traffics, I got loads of them, but no sales and impressions! What could this mean? What do I get?

    Are you promoting to cold traffic?

    Or are you warming them up via a funnel first?

    It means that your current marketing is not working and you need to change what you're doing before you lose any more money.

    What do you get? You get poorer and poorer the more you spend money on traffic.

    Spend time here and start following seasoned members that do CPA marketing. Make "CPA" a subject of study and learning.

    Many people believe that just showing up to do Internet marketing is all that is needed. The myth is perpetuated by scammers that would have you believe IM is easy, takes no preparation, and anyone with no experience can do it profitably.

    I prefer to think that marketing is like any other college career path subject: you must put time, study, and effort into learning before you can expect to become proficient at your chosen IM business model. I'm not suggesting that you have to take 4 years before you're well prepared ... but it's not going to happen over night or during your first few campaigns.

    Study, observe, learn by experience, and follow the bread crumbs that others have laid down already.

    The very best to you,

    Usually Stephen it means you have not developed skills to earn folk's trust, so they do not buy your affiliate offer because they do not trust you're an expert.

    Create helpful content thru a blog, YouTube and social media. Make friends by helping folks in your niche. People will begin to trust you - since you are helping them for free - and friends expand your reach by promoting you and endorsing you, boost affiliate sales.

    There could be several reasons for this - from the quality of your product to the quality of your advertisements.

    I'd try to build a list that would be interested in several products in the sector you are trying to attract. That way, if first you don't succeed, you can try, try again.

    If you don't have an item that deals with your sector that you can give away for free to start building a list, check out some of the PLR sites for material, or write or create of video on your own.

    As mentioned, you should be trying to cultivate a relationship with a list of potential buyers. You'll probably need a blog or landing page that can help you do this.

    Lastly, there is a lot to cover in becoming successful at internet marketing. While you can learn a lot here on the forum or poking around YouTube, you are better off taking course that gets to the heart of learning some of the basics and beyond. Try a course that offers ongoing support and encouragement. Saves time and money in the long run.

    What paid traffic source are you using?

    How much are you bidding?

    No impressions?

    Then your ads aren't showing and if this is the case, you aren't spending yet.

    No one can give you a good answer or guidance without knowing more variables.
