eLeavers and Clickbank (my experience)

by mbug90 13 replies
$8 spent left me with:

7041 impressions
146 clicks
0 sales

I picked a product with low gravity, which should mean less people marketing it. I entered all the relevant keywords. I kept telling myself I would have a sale today. No joy. If I am doing something incorrectly, I invite those who know to come forward now.

Do I HAVE to build a website? Wouldn't that just be another couple hundred dollars toward something that will most likely not pan out?

    146 clicks for $8 would be great - except that none converted.

    Either:

    The ad is misleading - meaning they clicked through but there was a mismatch to expectations on the landing page, or...

    The landing page sucks and doesn't convert.

    This site? eLeavers.com Alternative To Google AdSense | Advertising And Marketing NetWork | Google AdSense AdWords Alternative

    What kind of website would use that for advertising? Even if you got banned by AdSense you could easily sign up for BlogAds or BuySellAds.

      Yes, that's the one. I read that it had excellent conversion rates.

      I am now promoting something else that is more popular. 734 impressions, 26 clicks, 0 sales.

      Sometimes I wonder if everything on ClickBank is just a pile of sham, and those who click know it.

        Never heard of it. Stick with what we know works with affiliate traffic:

        - Bing
        - Buy Sell Ads
        - Blog Ads
        - List Building
        - Facebook
        - PPV
        - Site Scout
        - etc.

        Dont' do crazy stuff with experimental traffic until you figure out the basics ;-)

    a better approach is to setup a squeeze page to capture the email adress and use the autoresponder to presell the product for you

  • It's all on how you use the tools.

    Are your keywords laser focused on what your offer is?
    Are your ads compelling and help pre-sell your product?
    Is your landing page convincing and good at closing the sale?

    If keywords are too generic, you'll get lesser quality clicks. If your ads are not compelling, few will click and those who do may not be of high quality. If your page's sales message is poor, few will buy.

    It doesn't matter if you sell your own product or someone else's or which ad network you use. If you do one or all of those things poorly, you will have poor results.

      If I put "laser focused" keywords into my eLeavers ad, I don't even get any impressions.

      And I am pretty sure a squeeze page requires a website, which I have to pay over $100 to host each year.

        It's not about getting lots of impressions, it's about getting relevant impressions and therefore relevant clicks.

        Take a lawyer. They usually focus on one area of law. If he bids simply on "lawyer", he will get lots of impressions for sure. But if he specializes in family law, all those who are looking for a personal injury lawyer result in irrelevant impressions. Sure, much less impressions if he bids on family lawyer but at least, they will be of better quality. There will be less wasted clicks. You are focusing on the wrong thing if you are too broad in your keywords just to get as many impressions as possible. Yes, you want impressions but quality ones.

    Ok so first of all,

    In my own personal experience direct linking to CB products using paid traffic (PPC and display) can be a disaster. I have had as many as 400 clicks to a decent CB product and no sales.

    Also, most people would not consider low gravity to be good indicator of a product that converts well, regardless of who else is promoting it. You need a product that sells.

      Yes and No.

      If I send 400 clicks from any demographic to a diet product I'll get no conversion.
      If I send 400 clicks from women 35-50 for a diet product targeting women I'll get conversions if that ad copy is good.

      I've seen conversions as high as 3% on cold traffic for some popular CB products.

      No pre-selling.
      No list building.

      Just direct link and sell.

      Of course it's more long term and smarter to build the list and relationship but cold traffic against products do convert. It's a good way to test out something before setting up a landing page.

      Vendors spend countless weeks tweaking their sales copy, the color of the website, pricing, the way the order form looks just to get conversion to improve.

      Some stuff with low gravity converts fine.
      Some stuff with high gravity converts not as well.

      It just depends.

    These sorts of low tier ad networks can sometimes work if you know how to filter out all the bogus traffic.
    eLeavers might be awesome. But it probably isn't and will require a lot of tweaking to get it working.

    The other sites I mentioned (especially Bing) would be much easier to get going.

  • You should know that a low gravity product is not liked by people. so it is not a fault of eLeavers .

    I think you should choose product having highest gravity.
    then you can make huge sales. eleavers provide you targeted visitors and highest quality converting traffic.

    thanks!

    You should choose Good gravity product from clickbank . Because good gravity products are
    more preferable . Also you can advertise your product
    link at advertising network like eLeavers .
