I've been running ecommerce in my country (Nigeria) for the past 2 years and it's been going pretty fine. Recently, I started learning CPA and I thought that with my experience in marketing my own physical products, I would be able to do just fine in CPA.
But I guess not..
I started out with adult cpa (CrakRevenue), spent over $400 and earned only $10 in conversions. Pretty awful, right?
I then decided to leave adult cpa (as they said it was already saturated), to try other general niches. I've run ads on Bing, Adwords, PopAds & PopCash so far, without ANY conversion at all - the niches being (Pets, MMO & Diet/Fitness).
From the look of things, it appears CPA is a totally different ball game and I would appreciate any pointers, please. Like, what traffic source you would recommend and any other useful info.
