    This month with CJ is by far the worst month in the history of Affiliate marketing.

    Sales 11
    Leads 0
    Clicks 13,011
    Impressions 15,704

    I am not sure how much worse it can get than this, but these numbers are so pathetic, for the very first time in AM I am seriously going to get rid of some thing.

    I've got it!!!! - If there is a merchnat out there that can turn 13,011 Clicks into more than 11 damn sales - please contact me so I can get busy!

    You are in trouble......

    At least my sites are pretty

    I have been watching a slow decline in conversions; all the non-converting merchants are in for a rude awaking. Termination Notices from an Affiliate this time!

    Change is in the air!

    Yesterday I had one sale (700 clicks), today no sales (480 clicks so far).

    Now either somebody declared a shopping amnesty week, or something's not right. At MINIMUM I expect 1/100 clicks to turn into a sale.

    Speaking of amnesties, has anyone ever suggested an affiliate amnesty day? Might make a point with the networks and merchants of our power.

    I only have one merchant that I wouldnt want to drop at CJ, I think it is time to clean house. Tracking of sales is in the tank with CJ as far as I can see - everywhere else is at par for me. Yet CJ dont seem to see a problem. I am amazed at such a decline with a network in such a short time.

    Sandra I compared your number of clicks with my conversion ratio and found that I would have made 300 sales and roughly 1700 dollars income.

    Never fails! No sooner do I let out a squawk but the sales come in. One at 17:18 PST, one at 17:40 PST.

    I'm going to start complaining more often.

    I always use the tracking pixels. Helps in making sure everything is OK.


    As for obtaining traffic, after the first year it has not been an issue, or sales for that matter until mid last year and this year.

    This year it simply sucks big time...

    If you share your sales, I will share my traffic.

    We can start our own type of business... Truly sharing Sales!

    Sure I'll trade my 26 sales and 2 leads from cj for 13000 clicks
    Your clicks are about 6x what I have

    Want to see an even worse set of numbers for 1 indie program from my giftgoodies site?

    CUATION week of heart do not view any further:



    Click-Throughs: 536
    Banner Click-Throughs: 177
    Text Click-Throughs: 359
    Banner Impressions: 33092
    Confirmed Orders: 0 0
    Sales Generated: $0.00 $0.00

    The game is no longer traffic but merchants that will convert!

    I agree these numbers are really bad, last month I averaged one sale per 55.44 clicks...this month it is almost 50% down to 1 sale per 76.44 clicks and they try to tell us the parasites do not make much diference.
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    Ok, you send me 13k clicks and I'll guarentee you more than 11 sales. If not I'll put $20.00 in your SAS account. You just need to use the four special (hot Selling) items found on our home page and you'll see more than 11 sales. With our FPC and our new "Store Window Display" (SWD) you'll see just what 13k clicks will do. I'm so sure I just put 20 bucks on it. How does LingerieGoodies sound! It's time for a change...

    IMO those low conversion and impressions # are because of using datafeeds. Visitors are encouraged to click product links more than 1 time for the same merchant. I have been experiencing this case after using PSC page builder.

    Don't ask why the ball doesn't come.
