@mshack - As with any site traffic will vary and will always fluctuate
45,000 hits was from the relaunch we did of the site and with hundreds of affiliates sending traffic thats normal... Then after launch traffic slows as with any site but it remains steady
4000 - 7000+ visitors a day is VERY good traffic

MCTS is a top 10 site on Clickbank that has also been verified by TrustGuard
CB wouldn't allow any site to sell that has a trojan connected to it

How did you come up with the $1,900,668 profit figure? According to the Clickbank records you've made around 600k in sales.

The $600K is what I've personally made in my vendor account

Here's a MTD update
Take a look at the link below it's a screenshot I just took of the account
http://makecashtakingsurveys.biz/mtd-stats.png
I've highlighted 3 important things for you
1) At the top I highlighted the account name so you could see this is the real account
2) I highlighted the refund rate so you can see it has actually dropped 2% from the screenshot of 25% on my Flippa sale page
3) I highlighted the MTD figure so far which is $10,811.08 and this is only the first week of December. So if you take that number and multiply by 4 this site is on track to do another $40,000+ month in profit
Today its at $800+ in sales and it's not even mid-day yet so it will do close between $1500 - $2000 today
Thanks!

@adsclassified - We've spent over $80,000 over the last few months on banner advertising, PPV traffic, and paid-to-click traffic
We haven't done any SEO on the site although we were at one point planning on doing so but as you can see traffic is not that much of a problem
And we've never done any pay-per-click
Thanks!

We collect all our email addresses on optin forms we setup to capture exit traffic or people who try to leave the site
The site only requires 2 hours a day max, some days no work at all and customer service handles everything else
We've spent over $80,000 over the last few months on marketing such as banner advertising, PPV traffic, and paid-to-click traffic

In your latest screenshot from http://makecashtakingsurveys.biz/mtd-stats.png what's with the big decrease in earnings ? I see the profit was growing until November 28th ( at least for the few days that can be seen in that screenshot ) then is going down with more then 60% percent...
Do you promote other products as an affiliate to the subscribers ? If yes, HOW ? Because i don't see any emails sent in the campaign that you have sent... And how come you haven't sent not even one email to the subscribers or affiliates since launch ?
https://flippa.com/auctions/2671791/attachments/655740.png
Zero sends, zero opens, zero clicks...
Can you send me a PM with a username for the complete members area ?
Are you selling the entire business ? ( Business Name, Clickbank account , all CPA Accounts, Aweber or whatever you use account and so on ?
Can we have a meeting through a screen share program to verify everything ?

@seomanager - Well it does say in the Flippa listing and on the comment board multiple times that we did a relaunch of the site, so with any relaunch profits are going to go up and then slowly trickly back down but with steady income as long as affiliates keep promoting and these affiliates have been promoting for a solid 7 months straight
And $1500 - $2000 a day just in the vendor account isn't bad at all
Now about the email marketing side. Yes, we do promote products as an affiliate. The screenshot that we took there from the account doesn't track sends and clicks but... if you look at the link here http://makecashtakingsurveys.biz/gvoclicks.png
You can clearly see that we mail the list with the most recent email being today. The emails that show 0 clicks are were just written in text and our autoresponder only tracks clicks for html emails
Yes, we are selling the entire business. The Make Cash Taking Surveys name, CB account, all CPA account, and exclusive rights to the Chad Michaels name for 12 months
For the emails, we will transfer the files to the buyer. We can't sell the accounts because we have lists from other products in those accounts but any list built with MCTS will be deleted once sale is made
And sure, I'd be more than willing to do a screen share meeting with you to verify everything
Sending you a PM now
Thanks!

@ronywilliams83 -
We've spent a lot of money on different traffic sources or marketing since the site launched such as:
- A lot of banner advertising

- PPV ($40,000 just on this alone)

- Paid-to-Click

- and a few more
And as you know in Internet marketing, paid traffic can be very expensive
Thanks!
