Does ANYONE make $ from CJ banners, or any banners, or have internet users become banner-blind?
I try to avoid obnoxious flashing banners or putting more than 1 or 2 or the same page though.
I make much more from CJ than adsense.
I don't think it's CJ that was the problem, I think it was me. I would never have put general banners up anyway but even posters for a band were useless when people were just searching for band info. If people are interested in posters then they would search for "band posters". So, I think it needs very careful targetting even with text links but that is true of all affiliate marketing.
First 4 month I tie up with program "A" got good Clicks and sales too but they never care to pay me.
Next 4 months I try CJ, got lot of clicks but not a single sales ever.
Now for last 4 months I am with Another program and get beyond my expectations in clicks as well as revenue.
So my Suggestion to you KEEP AWAY form CJ as my friends too have the same experience with CJ.
Also they suspend your A/C if you didn't earned in six month, it makes us to create lot of mail id to be with CJ.
The best way to make money is to get traffic that is looking for what your ad says. This is very hard to do. You can't just stick some random ad on some site and expect to make money.
if someone is looking for dog food and you present them with pet food, probably low conversion.
but if someone is looking for dog food and you show them 2 or 3 kinds of dog food with specific benefits for their dogs, most likely the clicks would be of higher value.
in terms of percentage... its possible to get conversion rates of 3.5% upto 15%
