    Can anyone help me. I am promoting 2 programs OBA and profitmart. I have had thousands of hits but no sales. All my ads are on safelists. Could it be the programs are no good.

    Sounds like your traffic is untargeted - all your potential customers are just window shopping. Try giving away a free report and then funnel them in with upsale offers.

    Are these programs legit or do they look like scams? Also, if you are using PPC advertising, what kinds of keywords are you bidding on?

    If your target audience are just like you, marketers and in some case they are promoting the same programs as you, so your sales will be low. Try a different kind of advertising and see.

    Has different is your product from the rest. do you have your own website? you have to work on getting unquie vistors. safelists is not the best to use. everyone there is promoting what you are doing. work towards getting organic traffic. write reviews about this product, write asale letter

    The programs are good I know people making money with them. You are using only 1 method of advertising and to people who are doing the same type of programs as you. You need to create your own targeted traffic. Try making a lead capture page and then you can build realationships with people to get them interested in your program.

    It sounds as if you are getting the traffic but not the sales, i must say it seems to be that the visitors you are getting aren't interested in purchasing at all, which means a large percentage of your traffic might as well not visit.

    Do you have a site? if so place it in your signature for us to take a look

    Three common causes:

    1. Content could use improvement and/or you may be soft-selling when you should be hard-selling or vise-versa.

    2. Traffic is untargeted.

    3. Your affiliate links aren't working properly or companies are being dishonest about sales.

    It's hard to determine the likely cause without a sig link and without knowing where your traffic is coming from.

    Sounds to me like you need to start developing traffic from sources other than safelists. A blog would be a good method. Also write articles and submit them to with you link in the sig box.

    I agree with what has been said already - you need to include other ways of marketing as well as using safelists. A note on safelists: paid memberships work better than free memberships, and if you are using safelists that give members credits for clicking through, the hits you are seeing could be as a result of people simply clicking for credit.

    The best way to utilize a free membership for a safelist is to ask other members if they would care to exchange contact information with you. Then you add them to your contact list, and they will add you to theirs, and you can work to develop a relationship with those people.

    Also, keep in mind that on average a person needs to see your ad 7 or 8 times before they decode to take action - so, you must post your ad to the lists consistently, over time. If you find that you don't get a good response, tweek your subject line. If that does not improve things, tweek the ad itself, and always include your contact information so that people know that you are a real person at the end of the ad.

    If you'd like to give us the URLs of your landing pages, perhaps we could help you evaluate those as well. Maybe your content just isn't very effective.

    Sounds like your traffic isn't targeted. Work on other methods of marketing. Writing content rich articles with specific keywords and then submitting them will help wtih the flow of targeted visitors. Targeted traffic is key.

    You have been given wonderful advice. I agree you need to get more targeted traffic. A blog is wonderful and with the right links and affiliate links can also be another stream of income for you. Make it rich in content - give people what they need and you and you'll b surprised at the difference it makes.

    This is the difficulty with choosing a product and HOPING to get traffic for it. For me it's far easier to find a market that already has an overwhelming desire to spend money on what they want. Promote THAT product/service to the bank!
