Can POF make money?

by 26 comments
Hi,

I want to know if people can really make CPA money from POF and How many can people make? $10 per day or $20 per day? Thanks.
I lost $30 in 3 days with POF and make no money at all.

    Yes, it's defintiely possible and some people are crushing it with POF. If you don't know what to do you can lose your money in no time. Explore this section here. There are many POF-releated threads you can learn from and some "case studies" as well. Good luck!

      POF has already targeted traffic , people are interested in dating and a ideal place for CPA affiliates to make good money . . just do a bit research on your targeted demographics and you are good to go , a bit of testing will be required to make good money out of pof ,

    I think it depends on your strategy. You can google Alex Tan. He makes a decent living from it.

      $100 a day on POF is not that difficult once you have tested numerous offers and get an understanding of how the system works, I know people doing 4 figures a day on their platform.

      You say you have spent $30 in three days, maybe if you give us your results from those days and what ou have done so far we can help you tailor the campaign to be profitable or point you in the right direction.

      Remember as with any paid traffic source you are generally going to lose money upfront, this initial loss allows you to buy the data you need in order to create a profitable campaign.

    I've been making money with POF since 6 months.

    Here is how I do it

    1.) Select an offer which converts well (Ask your AM)

    2.) Think of an Angle (Eg. Black Males Date White Females, White Males Date Rich Females, Asian Males Win An Ipad)

    3.) Research Images (I use Affexperts POF Ads Spy Tool For most of my images research, its paid but worth every penny.)

    3.) Login Count <50 - I always use this for better traffic quality.

    4.) Bid Around $0.80 - $0.95 for small ads.

    5.) I use landing pages 90% of the times.

    6.) Once you find a profitable campaign, scale it up using IAB banners and other countries.

    7.) Clickbank offers also work great with POF.

    Hope this helps!

    What does POF mean?
  • Profile picture of the author Gary Gomez
    You can make really good money at POF, but you need to spend a fair bit to test everything out first.

    I normally test 5 images and two copy versions at a time and run them for at least 2k impressions, so that 20k impressions in total.

    At this point you can see if you have any winners or not, by getting decent CTR (I aim for 0.2 at least.

    If you are spending about .90c CPM then its going to cost you $18 just for this very small sample......and you may not have any winners so will have to repeat the process.

    If you do ahve a winner or two then you can start to run these and test further images, you need about 10 per campaign to avoid banner blindness, again more testing budget is needed.

    Most people dont do enough testing and put up one or two ads and then complain it doesn't work, when in actual fact they haven't invested enough to find the winners.

    TEST, TEST, TEST is the mantra for POF.

    Good luck

    I know many friends who are making $100+ per day with POF. Get complete information of people who are interested in your niche and then target them. POF really help you to target exactly for what traffic you are looking for. I know one of my friend William Souza is really good in POF and he is a good coach. You can drop message to him here View Profile: williamrs

    I'll suggest you to get a coach first to save your money in testing without knowledge.

    Are you kidding? Yes! Lots of people make $xxx/day and few make $x,xxx/day on POF, not including the advertisers.

    $30 over 3 days is really very little. You should have a few thousand dollars to invest before you get into it if you are really serious about making it work.

    All paid traffic requires dedication in time, focus, and capital to make work. And even then, it's competitive and you might not make it. POF is the best place for newcomers to start IMO because they are the most affiliate friendly.

    Let me know if you need more guidance.

    POF works wonders. It just recently started promoting mobile i think if you tap into that before it becomes saturated

    of course people can and are making money with pof, they wouldnt use them if they didnt. 10-20 a day shouldnt be too difficult with some testing and the right strategy.

    Do you care to share what you have been trying and we can give some advice from there

      The only thing I can tell from that is your CTR is too low. Test lots of ads and generally shoot for CTR > 0.1%.

      If you want in depth critique you're going to have to share a lot more details.

    Don't worry about. Loosing money is part of the game. Test, Test, Test. That's all you can do at first.

    The great thing about POF is you can laser target people. I mean you can target hair color, eye color, skin color....I mean it's incredible. If you target say white overweight people with blue eyes and blond hair, you have to create an ad that speaks to them DIRECTLY. Put a blonde overweight woman in your ad with blue eyes who wants to lose weight, or get a date. They have to think "oh she looks like me". You have to connect with them directly, so they click on your ad.

    If you want to make it even more believable, you can create a custom landing page and iFrame the form from the CPA lander in your custome landing page. On your custom landing page you can have blonde overweight women and stuff like that. But only do this if your Affiliate manager allows it. Many networks don't allow this, so be careful with that.
    Bottom line: Laser target people, use your brain and imagination to come up with high converting ads that connect with them directly.

    Hope that helps, Alen

      Am I missing something here, I can't see any targeting option within pof for eye color!

    hey everyone I am new to POF and affiliate marketing. I placed my very first two ads today for dating adults 40 and over. I have pasted in my stats for the two ads for today. I have a daily budget of $10.00 recommended cpm was .40 but I did .25. So here are the stats:
    Ad one
    Delivered: 20,275
    Clicked: 11
    CTR (%): 0.054%

    Ad Two:
    Delivered: 20,303
    Clicked: 10
    CTR (%): 0.049%
    based on those numbers did the add do ok? no conversions yet but was day one. Would you recommend I do a higher CPM range was .16 and up but they said .40 was the best option I choose .25. Any advice would be appreciated, I do not have the prosper 202.

      Your CTR is to low.

      I personally don't go any lower then 0.1% and you can easily do much better then that.

      How many images are you running per campaign? Remove the images below 0.1%, I always recommend removing the image after about 1k impressions without clicks.

      I would also recommend bidding a bit higher when you start running your ads and then slowly bid down with let's say 0.6 cents. This will also improve your CTR rate.

      POF is all about not being lazy! don't settle for 5/10 images but go for 50+. If you can't afford testing a lot of images with a higher bid I really wouldn't waste the money you have now and build a bigger budget for better data.

      Here are some links for you that will help out:

      Goodluck

    - First setup up Prosper202 that is must.

    - Most people like to start with bids set higher then lower it as thing start converting.

    - Make sure you are using a landing page and good one.

    - Test more images for a higher CTR.

    I wouldn't be iframing the offer in your own lander. 99% of networks will ban you for that.

    Don't do that.



    YES POF works. It works well.

    Hello ra2,

    POF is the most targeted Traffic. To be successful you must have high CTR banner and First page conversation dating offer.

    From my experience , POF is better for PPL offers not PPS.
