Another try at affiliate earning

I've never had great success with affiliate programs. I send them tons of traffic and they fail to convert so I end up with nothing or at least very little. A recent email made me think that could change.

They generate leads for tour guides and they want people to request free travel brochures. The original email said that since the brochures were free, conversion rates tended to be high. I have a ton of travel traffic so I figured I'd give it a shot.

In the first day I sent them 84 people. I earned $0. Now obviously I can't make money if I'm giving my traffic away for free. I really don't need a poorly performing affiliate program distracting my readers from Adsense and the text links that actually pay so these guys get a few more days but if I've sent them 1,000 visits and they're still not paying for that traffic, my latest foray into affiliate marketing will end as all the others have.
