    I recently started out with CPA offers. I loaded $25 into a 7Search campaign and didn't make a single conversion!
    Learning curve money!

    I sold a website too early and it ended up generating over $100k. I sold it for less than $2k.

    It was between $0.04 and $0.10 depending on the keyword.

    My mistake was not changing the ad type. I did get a fair amount of clicks however, but without a single conversion the campaign was a flop.

    I bought a website for a a few thousand bucks way back when Flippa was still quite new and even though I had done my researched it turned out I got totally ripped off.

    The site was "suppoosed" to be bringing in about $30/day (or something like that I can't remember exactly) through CPA rebill offers and some adsense but the whole time I had the site I never got one single measly conversion and only received a couple of measly adsense clicks.

    After doing some more research I found a whole bunch of other very similar sites being sold out there with very similar screenshots and descriptions and I'm pretty sure the whole thing was just a scam and the "revenue" was nothing but photoshopped statistics... bastards.

    Oh well. Live and learn.

    with the collapse of some larger networks we got burned a few times, but we are pretty good about watching for red flags and pulling the reins back on campaigns and networks or advertisers as a whole. We lost a few thousand on a few networks that have not paid. nothing tragic, but it does sting

    A couple thousand. Not losses from networks. Just doing dumb shit with campaigns or letting non profitable ones run too long!
