Have any of you had success with CJ travel merchants lately? My clickthrough rate typically hovers in the 0.3 to 0.4 percent range. The sales picture is even worse--clickthroughs at CJ haven't yet converted to sales. I'm having better luck with independent affiliate programs like Auto Europe, InsureYourTrip.com, and HotelsCentral.com.

I expect things will improve in late winter or early spring, when more North Americans will be actively planning European vacations and will be ready to buy railpasses, buy travel accessories, etc. But I'm sure not seeing much action on CJ right now.
