i'm shocked by plenty of fish!!!

by thair 74 replies
i submitted my first ad on plenty of fish yesterday it was a dating offer and after 24 hours my ads status went from pending approval to needs creatives i made some changes and ran it again same thing has happened again i changed that offer with another dating offer..within a minute after submitting the ad the ads status went from pending to running and within a minute i had 46617 imps and 24 clicks with zero conversion and burned $ 25 just like that does this usually happens or there is something went wrong with my ad? i still believe that my ad didn't run long enough to have that much impressions.
what are your thoughts guys on this?

    Sounds like you had a high bid and very little targeting, maybe try to tighten your targeting

      crisba the suggested bid was .40 to .80 and i chose 50 was that a bad decision? how much bid do you usually start with? plus my targeting was way higher than usually i targeted 3 countries at the same time lol silly me .but is okay i have learnt a good lesson and gain confidence along the way.

    Does PoF only offer PPV? Or do they also have a PPC model? Also, is there a minimum deposit/budget I must invest to try with them? Thanks guys.

      The last time I visited PoF they requested a $1,000 upfront deposit so I ran away. Don't know if this changed.

      My question for this Forum is: did somebody made a good ROI in PoF?
      If so, can you roughly inform the figures?

      Does anyone know if there is a minimum?

    You must have set your ad for instant distribution. Had you set it to "evenly", it wouldn't have happened.

    My suggestion is rise your bid at your next testing, I find better CTR with bidding higher but again if your ad copy not perform well then you will burn money faster

      my bid was .50 ten cents more than the suggested bid are you saying i should rise more? plus pof is very much restrictive than i expected they don't approve ads with revealing pictures they give way too much lame excuses to reject your ad sometimes they go like "your ad text is sexual and 100% percent free" has this ever happened to one of your ads? and what kind of images do you use for your ad?

    I'm not an expert in POF but do have some experience. My guess is you have too broad target audience and too high bid. Why don't you try lowering your bid? The last time I placed a bid there, I set it at $0.20 with very narrow target (country, gender, age, marital status, number of login, etc).

    From my understanding, as you request more targeted audience, you would pay higher bid. Oh, and my above bid give me 6-10 clicks for only $1.5 though my creatives (yes, it's plural) are quite plain.

      Hi Nubitol, I guess that by now you got some more clicks over there.
      Are you promoting more than one product in PoF?
      Did you reach some sales conversions so far?
      Thank you
