    Hello Everyone,

    I have been working on Adsense for the past 2 years, and I have earned pretty good, but lately earnings started to drop so I thought to better switch to CPA instead.

    Here's what I have :
    Tracking software: AdsBridge (Basic account)
    Landing pages hosting: VPS (first month $5)
    Budget testing offers: No more than $5-10 daily

    My goal is to earn $10/day to cover hosting, tracking software and testing expenses.

    Here's my first attempt in CPA:

    29/6/2016

    Offer Number 1 : GEO (INTL)
    CPA Network: Peerfly
    Vertical: App install
    Payout: $0.05
    EPC: $0.02
    Traffic source: Facebook Ads
    Targeting: 4 Arab countries
    Landing pages: Nope, I thought no need? I used direct linking.

    Here is the stats on Facebook Ads
    Didn't check AdsBridge as it was useless without conversions..

    [​IMG]

    Post Reach: 64,672
    Clicks: 1,598
    Per Website Click: $0.005 (I was paying for ad impression)
    CTR: 2.45%
    Conversions: 0
    Amount spent: $7.38
    ROI: -%100

    Alright, I honestly didn't believe I got no conversion with this large number of targeted traffic. Pretty odd not to get a single conversion isn't it? I'm sure at least just One of them downloaded, installed and opened the App.. I even went too far, I browsed my aff link on my own smartphone, downloaded the app, opened it many times.. Hoping I might be wrong and let my AM know to deduct the converted payout from my account, but no! I'm not.. I see my click on Adsbridge and it didn't convert. Anyway, contacted my AM for an explanation? Got no answer. Move on buddy!

    Will update soon with other offers...

    Since you have a VPS, you can try running your landers through that. Redirect through a domain.

    I understand testing more than one traffic source, doing it myself sometimes but it's good to get really good at one to gain understanding of setting up, tracking and optimizing a campaign. When you figure out how it all works, move on the next traffic source. It'll save you a ton of advertising dollars.

    All that being said, congrats on getting those two conversions! :)

    Hey @jacobi you are doing great job!

    You may set split testing for offers, LP (if you add some) and your creatives.

    If you run several campaigns, an auto-optimization feature will intelligently drive your traffic to the best converting offers.

    I think you can try to add LP to your flow, so as you know it converts better. You can create one in AdsBridge visual or html editor, or add a self-hosted one.

    Let me know if you need any help with tracking or optimizing, I 'll be glad to assist you;)

    Btw, here is the guide that can help you to learn more about fb tracking

    ------------------------------------------

    2/7/2016 - 4/7/2016


    Offer Number 5 : Multi GEO - Tier 1
    CPA Network: Peerfly
    Vertical: Short form lead
    Payout: $6.00
    EPC: $0.18
    Traffic source: 7Search
    Targeting: All countries specified
    Landing pages: Direct linking

    Here is the stats on 7Search :

    [​IMG]

    Keywords: 157
    Ad impressions: 3,275
    Clicks: 47
    CTR: 1.40%
    Conversions: 0
    Amount spent: $2.35
    ROI: -%100
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    The following three offers are in the same niche.

    Offer Number 6 : Lead Gens
    CPA Network: Peerfly
    Payout: $0.40
    EPC: $0.09
    Traffic source: 7Search
    Targeting: USA
    Landing pages: Tested Direct linking and 3 Landing pages

    With Direct linking I got 3 conversions.. Those conversions come from the same keyword. So, I'm keeping Direct linking and targeting the keyword that's converting. But since it has a few clicks and a low Click2Conversion.. It will take so much time to make the ROI positive.

    Here is the stats on AdsBridge :

    Keywords: 77
    Ad impressions: 3,766
    Clicks: 42

    CPA Network: Peerfly
    Payout: $2.25
    EPC: $0.11
    Traffic source: 7Search

    Landing pages: Direct linking.

    I got 1 conversion from the same keyword of Offer 6

    Keywords: 98
    Ad impressions: 6,166
    Clicks: 30
    Conversions: 1
    Earnings: $2.25
    Amount spent: $5.35

    CPA Network: Peerfly
    Payout: $1.20

    Here's the stats on 7Search :
    [​IMG]

    Keywords: 52

    Clicks: 36
    Conversions: 0
