    Hello, I recently started with paid adversting (native ads) and I already have my first campaign up and running, the problem is that I've yet to see any conversions.

    I've gotten 513 clicks to the offer, 42 order form impressions but no sales.

    This offer is being run heavily by other affiliates, I know this because its all over the spy tool I'm using, so it could be that the offer has already been seen by most people.

    Should I look to run my ads in new websites (I'm using Revcontent's whitelist feature) or just start looking for a new campaign?

    Here's the campaign's stats:
    Ad spend: $65
    Visits to offer: 513
    Conversions: 0
    Offer payout: $19-$35 (The offer has upsells, avg sale is $30)
    It has been active for 3 days

    My total budget for this project is maximum $5k.

    Some would say there is money to be made because other affs are running it. Some would say the offer is saturated, (Most popular CB products are).

    Just follow 3x offer payout - remember those CB products have been around for years depending on the product. If your products has been around for years and had 10000 of affs pushing it then the guys who were pushing it before you are drying up the market and your just getting people who have seen the product loadsa time.

    You could either keep optimizing until your head explodes. Or just go for lower gravity more recent product that hasnt gt negative reviews across the web. That budget you got is decent, but dont be to sentimental with those CB products, no conversion after 3x payout, CUT IT. Move on, too many other offers.

    You could also, run two of the top offers in that vertical plus one of your choosing with less competition to see which converts better. Lets not forget traffic has to be targeted aswell!

    If you really want to test it you will need to spend quite a bit more and test a lot of variables. Landing pages, days of the week, time of day, etc. If lots of affiliates are running it, then it works. However the people that have been running it for a long time have much more data than you do. They know which landing pages work, what time of day it works, etc.

    I usually go for 10x payout before cutting placements. If you're new to paid ads, you might want to try lower payout offers ($3 - $5) to get your feet wet first.

    It is normal to get non-quality traffic in the first few days. Just let it run for a few days and you will see big results as you get more engagements or activities.

    This^^

    It also depends on how many landers you have and how many websites you are showing up on.
