I’ve got an affiliate account with a major internet casino and for the last 15 month I’ve had $0 in purchases… The interesting thing is that I’ve got 100-900 hits per day still coming in.
I was using videos of one of my ex girlfriends which would make use of the url events.. I distributed them via filesharing services and I can only assume that people are still trading these files because that was the only source of traffic for this particular tracker..
Why no sales?June 22, 2004 at 3:26 pm #650770AnonymousInactive
Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that probably your marketing to a target audience of 17 year old horny boys looking for some quick porn to do their thing with……i highly doubt them having urges to gamble as the video is playing 😎June 22, 2004 at 3:27 pm #650771vladcizsolMember
Because the traffic was totally untargeted?
Why would people who are interested in watching videos of some ones ex girl friend be suddenly interested in playing slots?
Think about it. You are sitting there online looking at pictures of girls, with your right hand already occupied, and someone throws up an online casino. Do you “drop” what you’re doing for a quick game of blackjack?June 22, 2004 at 3:30 pm #650772AnonymousInactive

Interesting way to market casinos…
Firstly, I hope you had your ex’s consent for the video or you could be enjoying a few months behind bars with a new pal named “Bubba”.
But seriously, you’re missing your target audience in a big way. Maybe you should be promoting adult programs.
A buddy of mine has a site with good info on adult related affiliate programs so take a look and start using your traffic more effectively.June 22, 2004 at 11:29 pm #650789AnonymousInactive
I started out promoting adult sites back when SE traffic was pure gold and possible to get… Those were the days, hell you could even convert 1:100 or collect 8 cents per visitor (they actually paid you 8 cents+ per unique! no 25 clicks required – 1 unique) and they had 80 cent e-mail boxes with a link confirmation instead of a reply
It was all just incredible
I promoted internet casinos after I found it impossible for me to find any adult traffic and now… well hell I can’t seem to get any casino traffic either… for two years now!
Well, except to that one tracker I was promoting with the videos. hehe. And that won’t be making any sales any time soon..
I sure do wish I knew how to bring in ANY new customers to the casino, when people were gambling it was sort of amazing. (the numbers… the dollar amts.. I loved that part!)June 23, 2004 at 2:48 am #650805AnonymousInactive
If your distributing these videos – why not advertise adult sites? At least then the traffic would be targeted.June 23, 2004 at 2:53 am #650807AnonymousInactive

Spanking the monkey??? I didn’t think that many people owned monkeys and why would they be so spanking them so much… lolJune 23, 2004 at 11:30 am #650828vladcizsolMember

Good example is here that an affiliate did to my site, this is an affiliate who thought this would work, by the way 0 conversion from this
warning hard core nudity, do not click if you will be offended
Then asked me why no one was converting from all the traffic.
By the way I have sent him several followup emails to remove this and no response, I guess no one here knows who this guy is, and I can’t post his name as it would be against our T&C’sJune 23, 2004 at 3:03 pm #650835AnonymousInactive
A lot of adult webmasters are a strange breed. Don’t get me wrong; I have a couple of adult sites too.
When I was an affiliate manager, I had an affiliate who was a big adult webmaster who called our office and yelled and screamed at every person he could get in touch with about why he wasn’t getting paid for his traffic.
Apparently he signed up for our affiliate program without understanding that he was on rev share. He’d only made 1 sale at that point too, and I don’t know how he made it, since he was sending traffic from adult sites to a totally unrelated site.
