Do you catch yourself getting frustrated because you still haven’t hit your minimum payment at your affiliate network? If you do, then you’re not alone. But don’t worry, Revolution Force is here to help. We’re going to give you some insight on how to hit your goal and get that first payout finally.
Let’s start with traffic.
It’s hard to hit your threshold when you don’t have enough traffic being sent to your campaign OR you’re not sending the right traffic to your campaign.
If you notice you’re not getting enough traffic on your own, then we recommend buying traffic. It’ll help hit your numbers in the beginning while you are still working on growing your traffic organically.
But let’s say having enough traffic isn’t the issue. Maybe you have enough traffic and still can’t get those leads- it’s time to check what type of traffic is being sent to your campaign then. You could be sending the wrong traffic.
What do we mean by this?
An example of the wrong traffic would be sending advertisements for Asian dating to an audience trying to find BBW. Those are completely opposite spectrums and will make it nearly impossible to retain an audience.
You need to know your audience and demographics like the back of your hand. Okay, let’s pretend traffic isn’t your issue, and you actually know your audience very well. Another problem could be you’re pulling out of your campaign too quickly
You just quit.
We’ve all been there before. Looking at those numbers.. 20, 21, 22 unique clicks and then bam we quit the campaign because we “feel” it’s not working. Wrong! Don’t do that. We understand you know your traffic, but prematurely pulling your links will guarantee your campaign to fail.
Sometimes a campaign just needs time to grow, and 22 unique clicks aren’t letting it grow. So, stop refreshing your page, hoping to see something different and let your campaign mature into some $$$ for you.
Finally, the last issue is working with multiple networks.
It’s not wrong to work with multiple networks, but when you’re struggling to meet your minimum payment, it’s time to rethink your game plan. It’s easier to focus on one network and grow with them, get paid, and use that money to test the waters with other networks. Quality over quantity is key.
Having a minimum payment doesn’t need to be crippling. Instead, use it as a way to motivate you. Set a goal that you’ll get to that minimum payment by a certain date. Follow the tips we listed above, and if all else fails, reach out to your affiliate manager for help.
