Media Traffic, Trafficvance and other PPV Companies - An Effective Traffic Source?

Profile picture of the author Matthew Olson by
Hi Guys...

I'm venturing into paid traffic sources and was wondering if anyone had any feedback regarding Media Traffic, TrafficVance or any other PPV companies.

Is this a worthwhile traffic source for cpa offers? And if so, what types of cpa offers work best?

Thanks in advance...

    the same always holds true. You get what you pay for and if it sounds too good to be true...

    I don't have any experience with those 2 particular companies but in my experience that sort of traffic usually sucks if its inexpensive and not worth the investment.

    Also i have heard that cpa traffic works well for some stuff but other stuff it never converts well.

    Maybe you should find some people who have experience with whatever you are trying to sell and ask them what cpa offers they have had luck with.

    Either way, the best traffic is always the traffic you generate yourself if you learn how to drive targeted traffic.

    I do not have any experince with these companies .

    But , there is a truth you should know very well.

    If they offer targeting options and not have any big problems of fraud , just test it .

    I hope it helps .

    PPV traffic is cheap.

    The key is being able to target to specific part of a website to promote your offer.

    I have been doing some tests daily and sometimes getting 3000% return on my advertising.

    Reason being:

    1. Cheap traffic
    2. Highly targeted sites (long tailed keywords) etc.

    I recommend PPV.

    I tested AdonNetwork (PPV) using an free auto insurance quote offer. Over 3000 impressions but zero signup. Apparently, it depends on the kind of offer. It is true that some kinds of offers work better in certain advertising networks. Anyway, I will be trying "ringtone" type of offers with AdonNetwork. We shall see how well it converts.

    Thanks for the feedback. 3000% return on your advertising is very encouraging!

    You said "The key is being able to target to specific part of a website to promote your offer." Could you please clarify what you mean by targeting a specific part of a website?

    Also, any recommendation on a good PPV company? I've been doing some investigating and getting mixed reviews.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I almost spit up my drink on my computer screen .. :rolleyes:

    I've been studying and testing ppv for a while now and although I know it's a good source of traffic if done right, a 3000% ROI is simply unheard of.

    Your a friend of mine but come on, who's leg are you pulling

    I just cannot see how ppv can be effective apart from the big niches like weight loss, gambling, making money. The reason? You have absolutely no demographic/interest information on the punters running the software. I spoke with media traffic yesterday and wanted to know out of the 15 million users that had downloaded the software how many were UK based, the answer I got is UK is #2, what does that tell me? Not a great deal!

    If I then want to look at specific keywords/urls there is no way on earth they can tell me what those users interests or hobbies are as ppv is just about blindly rotating ads hoping something will stick. A particular niche I looked at has no competition on MT for the main players URL even though this is a worldwide company employing 1000s turning over >£100million.

    With PPC I *can* do research which tells me how big the pool is, the geographics, the trends, the estimated cost, all of that *before* I commit to a single penny.

    If I go to MT and say I want UK small and medium sized business owners looking at Sage accounting software what are they going to tell me? Nothing.....because they do not have stats!

    I have found that many CPA networks do not permit this kind of traffic
    source. So to begin with, you are restricted as to which offers can be
    used.

    So far, I have had zero results using these traffic sources. I have tried
    4 different offers, and had 4000+ views and clickthroughs but not one
    conversion. Yes, I checked the figures with the CPA networks. And tracked
    the clicks.

    Now, that's not to say this isn't a valuable traffic source - but it does take
    some testing and it is certainly true to say that some offers will work and
    others will not.

    ppv can work really well - however it takes lots of test, lots and lots of testing to find winners. But once you find them they rock!

    Started doing this about 2 1/2 months ago.

    Simple email submits for gift cards or gas cards is your answer.

    I spread my income amongst 4 CPA networks. 3 I'll keep secrets but Neverblue ads I'll share w/ you guys b/c they have no problem with this method.

    I make an extra $150 - $200 month with this method of PPV + CPA.

    Literally, a set and forget method.

    Here is a screenshot of my neverblue earnings:



    At the rate I'm going I'm totally going to blow last months earnings w/ this method out of the water! Today
    is only the 7th. So far it is my favorite "Set & Forget Method!"

    I'll probably do some more email submit testing and scale upward.

    Can't wait to get up to $1000 so I can get weekly checks with Neverblue. Muahaha!

    Just a heads up on Trafficvance. They are a full service CPA Network. Their minimum deposit is $10K! They are supposedly launching "Self Service" campaign management in Q4 that is similar to the other CPAs.

    Clinch,

    Can you elaborate on your monthly cost for Neverblue Ad Campaign #1 as per above? What are you netting?

    Not to mention the fact that they are NOT a CPA network.

    They are a CPV traffic provider.

    Hey Clinch, if you don't mind, what are your costs to get that extra? I'm just starting out with PPV, so all info is welcome. I can also recommend Stephon "Phon" Rudd as he's a master at this type of traffic with CPA

    My bad! It is in fact $1K. I was thinking of Kontera. They want mad money.

    Correct they are a "white-label" contextual in-text advertiser. They do not have CPA offers.

    I think the most important step is to find a really super converting offer that has a huge payout. I have been testing one CPA offer that has given me 6 sales total $242. in commissions for 117 clicks. This gives me some leeway to try some paid advertising. I think you also have to have an offer which appeals to a wide audience. This way you can buy cheaper traffic like run of network type traffic from a variety of sources. Hey, I am just getting going with this but I think you really have to look at what you are promoting first. Not all offers are created equal.
