Has anyone bought/tried this $997 software? Sounds like it might work but awfully expensive. Promoted on webinar by Anik Singal.

    Hi.

    1. URL scraper software with bells and whistles. Software make sense.

    2. Think paid traffic like PPV, CPV, media buy, social mobile, etc regarding serious traffic.

    3. Steep coaching price in today's world of info accessibility.

    4. Do some homework on keyword smartness and traffic generation methods.

    The only drawback I saw to the techniques shown was that they did not discuss how much money the average traffic for the day would really cost to make a difference. The $5.00 example = 333 views at 0.015 per view in cpv. On a big site that would be gone in probably an hour or less which would be ok if the conversion was enough within those views 333 based on the PCV offer you are paid to promote. That is the key

    What I don't understand how can all 'free' sites send free traffic to he's site???
    Also he's CTR is 0.5-32% + With the huge traffic he's cost is like $1-$2k You have to have reserve to cover that kind of traffic and payout...until you get paid.
    Very risky and need some capital also to start with, I think.

      I still have another question--wouldn't popup blocking stop the ads? If not why not?

      Has anyone actually purchased and tried this? I'm tempted but it's really spendy for me right now.

        Because it is not actually working on that site. A CPV site watches people going toward that URL and gives them the ad along with the site. The person has to have set up an ad to watch that exact URL with one of those advertising companies, like CPVLab or DirectCPV or others I am sure. That is generaly how it works.

        I am more interested in where they show you how to do it manualy, with out the $1000 point and click crap. Where Anik copies URLs into a spreadshet and complains about how hard it is to do ? It does not look that hard to me. If you knew some very popular products AND could find CPV offers that make sense I bet there could be some bucks made doing it manualy. But I don't think it is as easy as they make it sound to find matching products and CPV offers.

        I paid 5 bucks to get into these webinars with Anik and have done the first 4 and am regreting it already, with 11 more to go. He is just using all of the people who paid the 5 dollars as a marketing audience. His training is less then thrilling and he is all over the place. He complains about having to get up so early because he is in India and how he is not a morning person and rambles on like a drunken sailor. AND promotes his stuff over and over. It's a backlink service on the last webinar.

        It better get better or I am better off doing something else with my time.

      No, we saw it for free also. Some people watching the sales webinar are also in a training course with Anik for which some of us paid only $5.00, some other people paid $39.99 or something like that.

      He presented this webinar to us as a special guest presenting a webinar to teach us about a new method of getting traffic. Then he promoted it for a few of our classes the same way. I suspected it was going to be a sales presentation but had no way of knowing until a few seconds into the loooooong boring webinar. I hate those long sales presentations. mostly I just bail out. Luckly I was watching the video recording of the live webinar so I could jump ahead to the price at which point I bailed out quickly.

        Have to agree with yohoho.

        I paid for this...

        Marketing With Anik: 15 Weeks Coaching PLUS $5000 in Training!

        It was promoted as something experienced marketers would also benefit from. So far it has been only suitable for absolute beginners. In fact, he even gets down to explaining what a blog is. So if thats the level then its for those who are not just new to IM, but they're new to internet, computers, technology, and the light bulb.

        Anyway, back on topic.
        MassTrafficX is just another hyped up shinny thingy for the magpies to peck at.

    IF ANYONE, does take action on this, please let us know what you find and if it works/worth it.

      Just got another email from Anik today pushing this thing again. He tries to make me think it is actually something else but when you go there it is the same old thing.

      Let me count the ways this whole thing pisses me off...

      1. Too many emails telling me how it's a ONE time LIVE webinar that is SOOOO super top secret it will never be recorded or replayed. UMMM total BS it was recorded from the get go as I typed a couple of questions in but they never got to mine only the cheerleader type comments...

      2. I thought as someone else said watching Anik do it manually did not look that hard to me. More so if he says its going to take about 4 hours to set up that campaign that they claim is making him over a grand a day, 4 hours seems like a fair trade off... assuming its not BS like the "live" webinar.

      3. I don't like how they glossed over the numbers, at one point he was going on about how a 2.3% CTR was huge. But unless I have my math screwed up (which is possible) 2.3% of 100 would be 2.3 clicks? That 100 impressions would have cost him 1.50 according to his .015 maximum cost per click. His email submit was paying him 1 buck. So even if we gave him 3 clicks he is making 3 bucks for every 1.50 her spends. I am not complaining its a good return but you needs to have some deep pockets to make big money. He claims to be making over 200k a month on average, that is a LOT of ads and a LOT of clicks and a LOT of money going out while you wait for the payments to come in.

      4. They claimed ONLY 30 spots, then before the recording ended they added 5 more, sorry guys all gone. Go to the page now it's still open, still selling the same price AND they have added a 3 payment option.

      5. Anik claims he is footing 200.00 of the cost for the first 30 people because he's such a nice guy, of course the 200 is BUILT in to the price showing ummmm yeah

      Overall just another spammy hyped up shiny new object that I have bought WAY TOO many of in the past from way too many gurus that really have only their bank accounts in mind...

      Anyway thats my read on the complete and total waste of time I felt it was to sit through all that... maybe I a wrong and it's he holy grail but I am simply NOT putting out another grand for another silver button.

      So, beware of these big time gurus promoting their wares via Webinar.. They don't blink an eye selling high price scam products to newbies just to make their pockets fuller

    If the main function of the software is to get a bunch of keywords and then pick up the URLs for the first two pages of results, aren't there are lot of cheaper tools around that might do this already, just without the training and the hype? Maybe programs like listed in this warrior forum post

      No not really. It is pay per view or cost per view . You pay a PPV marketing company to watch certin URLS and they put ads up when people go there and you pay about a cent and a half. With this software you set up many urls to watch in campaigns.

      Apparently it can be dome manualy but I have not had the time to investigate it.
      Some companies invoved are:
      Pay Per View PPV Cost Per View CPV Contextual Online Advertising Network
      PPV Playbook / AFF Playbook Discount Code | ppvplaybook.com promotional code
      There are also vieos on Youtube.

    hey guys..

    Just my 2 cents - I am also attending Anik's training and yes i did see this masstrafficx webinar.. To me the concept was good.. i mean i had no idea that we could actually rip urls fr pages of google and use them to get traffic to our site using cpv.. so for me the idea was good but of course after researching online further, the price of 997 (even with 3 payments) was crazy

    as for the idea, i have started off with some cpa offers and it's ok.. i have been seeing conversions at a rate of up to 3% (approx) but the only this is we need to have stanby cash to pay for the cpv services and wait till our cpa earnings reach.. i use directcpv and set my budget to 3.00 per day with max bid of 0.015 per view. I scrape urls fr google , bing using a free software - Free URL Scraper Script (for CPV targets and display placements)

    It may not be fancy or anything but it does the job.. )

    For scraping youtube videos i use this

    CPVDen Tools - YouTube Scraper

    Just a small reminder guys... No tool or software or anything out there that works miracles right away.. we should be aware of merketing hype by now.. similarly, with this concept, it takes a while before we know which cpa offer to promote on which sites before we can start making big buck..

    Hope this was useful to u guys.. cheers..

      Does this work or is it a big joke? I have never ever done any cpv ever. I'd like to get into it if it works.
      You'd have to find offers that looked as if they were really part of the site they were visiting.

      I know that you can buy 20,000 visits to your site for $10 or something like that anywhere on the web. People do this to bump their Alexa ratings temporarily. You get to choose a niche like "business" or "home and garden".

      That traffic never converts, and I think its' the same CPV traffic that we're talking about there. We're talking low quality traffic coming from people who like installing software that also installs adware, who can't work out how to stop it and who get very used to killing off those ad pop-ups off.

      You only learn by doing and it wouldn't cost much nor take too long to give it try and see if it makes sense.

    So only one actual review from an actual customer? I appreciate all of your opinions, but shouldn't this thread be about the software and its value rather than complaining about the price without actually having played with it? Tons of programs cost a lot of money (SeNuke X anyone?). That doesn't necessarily mean that it is crap.

    Yes, you can easily use ScrapeBox to do the URL scraping in the same amount of time for $920 less ($77 total for the math challenged). But I think the real problem is that they did not structure the webinar very well.

    They showed a manual method that can easily be duplicated with cheap tools and then said "buy our stuff!" Most people don't understand that you also need specific knowledge about a few key things to make PPV work for you.

    Do you know how to iFrame an offer so that it looks like the ·Best Buy gift card he showed? Would you know how to redesign a landing page so that it converts better, still gives you credit and is accepted by the CPA network?

    That's the part that they glossed over in my opinion. They made some hints about the software being able to do those things but never showed it in action. They tried to make the whole method seem "SO SIMPLE ANYONE CAN DO IT" in order to get people excited instead of positioning it as a complete system to justify the price tag.

    I am not an affiliate, nor did I purchase the software. But then, I know how to do those key things. Over the years, I've also bought the tools that will help automate the process to some extent.

    For those of you talking about needing "deep pockets" to make this work, that is pretty much the reality of 99% of the CPA game. Net30 will kill you if you don't have a strong budget. The good news is that many networks will re-negotiate payment terms with people that produce $10k+/month.

    Paid traffic costs money ladies and gentlemen. Money for ads, money for tools, money for outsourcing, OR YOUR TIME (which you need to start thinking of as money if you ever want to make it in this game)...

    I am trying the software, however it is not all what is cracked up to be. First when you use the key word, it brings up a list of alot of keywords which have nothing to do with your subject. When you put in the keywords into the url scraper it asks you what scearch engine you want to use. By the demonstration it shows checking all three search engines which ends up having duplication 3x's of the same url. Then you are suppose to do the same for youtube. It sounds great and you have all of these urls instantly, however when I was using directcpv, I would get the message you are driving to much traffic and would basicly get an error message. After trial and error, I found out that you can not use youtube or you get this message. Even when I experimented by using over $50.00 for a day budget as directcpv indicated I still got the same message. I have been using the system for 2 weeks because for the last 6 days the system is down and not working. I have run 10 different campaigns with just the url scraper and have generated roughly 400 hits/day for each of the campaigns, however no sales. I have a 30 day trial period and I am cancelling today and requesting my refund.

    I want to share my experience with this product as well.

    I was promoted to the webinar by Mike Filsame, the webinar i attended actually took place at the 1st of march. I was quite surprised when i saw that in this topic that it already took place at the beginning of the February.

    I was very excited at the beginning, because i thought that it is really something easy and revolutionary. Not because i believe in all that hyped stuff, but mostly because of the authority of Mike Filsame and Anik Singal. And i really thought that it was a special promotion with special price of 997$ to the first 30 people and there are less and less spots remains, so you got to hurry up, so did i. But it became somewhat suspicious to me when i saw that this offer is still available at the next day ( actually it is available even now when i do write this review lol).

    Anyways i decided to give this product a shot.
    But when i start using this product, i realized that it does not work that well that it was advertised on the webinar.
    Firstly - some tools does not work correctly.
    Also got the same story as thebackdr in the post above, that keyword tool did not give relevant keywords and received eror message from direct cpv of too much traffic from sites like bing etc.
    URLs from ready to go campaigns were also not related to the product.

    Educational videos they have are pretty much basic, not really describing how PPV works , how to increase effectiveness etc.

    So i ran about 10 campaigns or so, spent more than 50$, but have not made a single dime. After that i claimed a refund ( i received it pretty fast - probably the only thing i like about this product). I have also unsubscribed from Mike Filsame list.

    I actually dissappointed in Mike Milsaime and Anik Singal. I remember words of one entrepreneur which says that you should give 10x more value with your product than it costs. Reverse situation applies there.

    I have asked DirectCPV support about their traffic. The truth is that pop ups indeed doesn't show up to everybody's screen and as yohoho have said there, the user must agree to see those pop ups.

    As a result you won't get that huge traffic from just a few keywords or websites, and there is a chance that your ad will be displayed few times to the same user.

    I don't know how their algorhythms of showing up pop up work and how they choose user to display the pop up to, as they have said that they won't disclose it.

      Yea, its just a scraper for keyword targeted PPV URLS, the rest is fluff. Its still questionable traffic volume, they leave out some important tricks, rules and methods. I think they used Direct CPV so they didn't giveaway the better traffic sources like TrafficVance or LeadImpact. I rarely use my DCPV account unless its for int traffic campaign.

      Anik is still great to learn from, but they push stuff all the time like this crap, plus its mobile guy Morrison's brothers product. Cross promotion (JV) with these guys are nice paydays for them. Buddy systems are great ahh?

      If you want to learn stuff they were talking about or how to run traffic on any level join AffPlaybook (has all the scraper tools and LP know how) and look-up Chad's Traffic Black book product ( he should have sold it for much more).... there you go...you wont spend much at all.

      This AffPlaybook forum and Chads product will put you on super fast lane and you will be thanking me.

      Now sure why I stay on Anik's list but now I'm off. I attended the Mass Traffic X seminar last week and actually thought it was a new presentations. I think I have finally learned these webinars are replays after replays.

      I think the CPV concept is good and I know people do make money. The presentation was very boring with stories and stories after stories. Why is it that people who do well ALWAYS are broke when they start and have such sad stories. Don't rich people ever do well?

      Well, I bought only after the 30-day guarantee and after I captured the screen and printed it out. The Mass Traffic X seems to be a good collection of products and on the surface it probably is a good set once I learn to use them all, however, here is my experience only after a few days.

      1. The built-in hot campaigns that are suppose to be the best of Andrian Morrison have tons of bad links and the link file is basically unusable.

      2. Support is fast (few hours) and answers my questions to the point.

      3. The webinar promised 1-on-1 coaching but never said what that meant so when I clicked on 1-on-1 coaching in Mass Traffic X I had to apply to be considered and was told only 50 would be accepted. (Sure, the account trainer told me later they have trained over 100,000. Probably not true but certainly over 50). Within 24 hours of applying I received a call.

      This was a screening call and, of course, I passed after being screened financially. I was passed onto the "account trainer" which was basically a fast talking and very nice financial closer person. The 1-on-1 coaching came to $3595. Based on what was offered I said I wanted to look at the contract. I was given a contract online. I took a few hours to read it and nothing was mentioned of what I would get. Then I thought I would check my banking account for funds and GUESS WHAT they had already charged me for my down payment and I had not even signed the contract.

      I did some Internet research and found the training company was PMI with over 450 complaints and many of them recent. I also found out they had charged some people up to $18,000 for the same training and never even did the training. More research revealed that the story Andrian Morrison told on his webinar was actually the story of his brother, Anthony. The whole scheme is a lie, scan and sham. Run, don't walk, away from this.

      I was told my down payment would be refunded and will find out on Monday. My credit card company said they have 180 days to refund AND they can recharge me within 6 months. Any challenges I would have to go to court. WOW. A really, really big scan.

      Anik and Andrian are big rip-off artists and if you are on any list of theirs I would suggest unsubscribing immediately. There are a few more details I have not mentioned. Please PM me before you even think about this.

      Other advice on this thread suggest other methods of url and keyword scraping and that sounds like the wise approach to anyone thinking of trying out CPV and PPV.

      Why I didn't check this forum first is beyond me. Never buy anything before checking this Warrior Forum.

        I think the CPV concept is good and I know people do make money. The presentation was very boring with stories and stories after stories. Why is it that people who do well ALWAYS are broke when they start and have such sad stories. Don't rich people ever do well?

        Well, I bought only after the 30-day guarantee and after I captured the screen and printed it out. The Mass Traffic X seems to be a good collection of products and on the surface it probably is a good set once I learn to use them all, however, here is my experience only after a few days.

        1. The built-in hot campaigns that are suppose to be the best of Andrian Morrison have tons of bad links and the link file is basically unusable.

        2. Support is fast (few hours) and answers my questions to the point.

        3. The webinar promised 1-on-1 coaching but never said what that meant so when I clicked on 1-on-1 coaching in Mass Traffic X I had to apply to be considered and was told only 50 would be accepted. (Sure, the account trainer told me later they have trained over 100,000. Probably not true but certainly over 50). Within 24 hours of applying I received a call.

        Wow. This is scary. Charging a customer's CC without even getting a contract signed or even customer's approval. After my last experience with a big ticket item that was $1500, I decided never again fork out hard-earned money to marketing products without due diligence. Seems like scams are getting worse every year. Now, I ALWAYS check on WF for peer reviews for even small ticket purchases. Besides, good WSOs are plenty to come by and at low prices most can afford!

    To be quite honest I was really impressed and kind of excited with the CPV concept after watching this Mass Traffic X webinar. I do not really pay much attention to people who slag off products without using it but I am sincerely grateful for the 2 or 3 people that actually bought the product and posted their experience and review on here.

    If I may give Zajacik a little advise……

    If you made payment with your debit card then you will have to take these people to court to get your money back because paying with debit card is as good as paying with cash. The funds come directly from your bank account. BUT…..they should NOT be able to charge your card monthly, for 6 months without your consent as you are protected under Direct Debit Consumer Law once you give both the bank and merchant (i.e. the Seller) notice to cease debiting your account in writing.

    However; if you paid by credit card you have even more protection. I am sure Visa & MasterCard credit card rules and regulations apply equally in the US as they do here in the UK. If this company refuses to refund your money and carries on charging your credit card then forget about litigating against the Seller. Under credit card rules and regulations your credit card company is jointly liable along with the Seller for goods and/or services which were either a) “Not Received” or b) “Not As Described”. If you’re based in the UK quote your Card Company “Section 75 of The Consumer Credit Act 1975”. I am quite sure they have a comparable law for consumer credit card purchases in the US.

    You should also go back to the order page which I believe is still displaying their 30 Day Money Back Guarantee and take a screenshot of this. If any company fails to honour their Money Back Guarantee they are in breach of contract. As well as that in the UK there are “Distance Selling” laws, rules and regulations that protect consumers who buy online i.e. where the cardholder is not present.

    Do these Gurus think we have $1,000 sitting around just waiting to be scammed? Do they know how hard a person has to work to accumulate that $1,000? We are not talking about a $47 ClickBank or WSO here……We’re talking about $1,000 and in Zajacik’s case considerably more than that…..Don’t let them get away with it!!!

    Thanks a lot guys for saving me $997!

    Regards

    Tex

      Tex, Thanks for your follow-up and advice. Just to follow up to let you know the down payment they charged my card on the 1-on-1 training was suppose to be the pre-authorization, however, they charged the full amount instead of a pre-auth amount AND before I even signed the contract. My bank said a $1 pre-auth would have been sufficient. I did pay for Mass Traffic X and, like some of the others, I am hoping that my refund comes soon after I make the request.

        First off I'd like to also thank Tex for the informational support to zajacik. Team work is a wonderful thing to watch.
        Next I would like to share how Anik's track record is going south FAST.
        Lethal Commissions was another "look how good this appears to work" system that never worked except for a handful of over knowledgeable high enders. Then the rest of the pack ended up returning the product for a prompt (if it was that, I think it was clickbank so that would be swift) refund. The system didn't work.
        Anik has become an actor and is linking with others he considers "brilliant" to sell "HALF MADE, PART TIME OR NO TIME" products that are full of fluff, lies, sucker words, pretty smiles and fancy outfits rigged at the expense of the viewing audience. This guy, Anik, reminds me of a fellow, that I know, who is very good at selling people houses, same mannerisms, smooth speech, nice appearance and it all spells "STINKY" cause its got that stuff in it that produces that smell.
        I'm off of Anik's list and anyone he affiliates himself with cause I'm tired of the lies and false presentations.
        Your going to have to answer God someday Anik and if you don't change your going to arrive in a place that stinks just like the lies and manipulation that has been coming out of your mouth. This product is empty and so will be your so called life if you continue this path of usery resulting in theft.
        I'm done and if I get pulled cause of this then so be it. If you don't want the truth then your going to lose, in the end.
        Thanks for all your input with this Warriors. Stay together in the truth and you will succeed.:rolleyes:

    Okay, just to put my two cents in....PMI Marketing is NOT a scam. No, I'm not being paid by them, blah blah blah. I'm a die hard warrior just like you guys. I heard about PMI Marketing through Mass Traffic X around, oh say...early January of this year through a webinar that Anik was hosting. I actually trust Anik, but I WILL agree with you guys when I say that some outfits that they push are pure garbage, and are two pricey for what you get, however, at the time I REALLY wanted to make it online and, I suppose you could say I was gullible and had that "dreamer" complex..you know the one where you rush into buying something by taking the proverbial "leap of faith" and it ends with you either actually succeeding, or epic failing, bank account minus however much you spent on the latest trash. In short, I bought it piddled around with it for a while, but actually decided to give it a chance, and in depth it seems like a very good concept, however, I believe that I quit prematurely due to the fact that I did not see results in the first month. Ever since, I guess you could say it's been gathering "digital dust" because I never touched it after that. Now as far as PMI goes, I signed up thinking that it was going to train me for Mass Traffic X, but it actually signed me up to "build my own business online". And still clinging on to that "dreamer" adrenaline rush, I said what the hell, and bought it, using my tax refund check. Yep, my refund check. Sooo, naturally, if you've ever been super poor like I have, you'd know that using a refund check is a BIG deal. They signed me up through duvera financial to make the payments back as I was being trained on how to make it online. I say it's not a scam because 1. They Actually DID train me. It's almost as if you were taking an online college course on business management and Internet Marketing. They give you a classroom login username password, and you take the "courses", while executing action steps as you go along. They explain quite alot, from applying for tax information with your local state office, to social media marketing, to publishing your site, etc. I mean sure, it took me a while to get my first site up and running, because as we all know life slows you down, especially with me having to recover from shifting my finances around so suddenly, BUT it was worth it. They are the reason that my business exists (That and MUCH needed prayer) And is doing quite well! I'm working on my second project now, which I have no doubt will be a HUGE success making thousands just like the first one (Thankfully it wont take as long since this time I kinda know what I'm doing). So in conclusion, Mass Traffic x, eh didnt really "do" it for me, however, there are those that can make the actually concept work for them. I have internet marketers family members, and friends who actually do well with ppv ppc marketing business, used Mass traffic x, and are doing GREAT with it. I guess it just depends on your level of patience/know how, and for me Mass Traffic X just didnt really cut it...BUT that's alright, because I DID get something very valuable out of it, which was PMI. Now, this is just something that I do out of habit, but if you want to know if a company is truly legit, maybe try thorough research PAST just googling the name, because that can be extremely misleading in terms of determining a company's true value. I looked these guys up on the Better Business Bureau first, I guess out of habit, because i wanted to know what I was dealing with. They have an A- as it stands, and yes it looks like they have had LOTS of complaints, but from what I'm seeing you guys are smart enough to know that it depends on WHAT you complain about. If you're complaining about billing/money issues, but not actually saying a word about the product, then that's misleading to those who are interested in whether or not a product/company can truly do for the public. PMI delivered on their service, and I "graduated" from the course, and even have them still as a reference if I have any questions, which is refreshing as alot of IM advisors I've paid to have train me have either been lazy and explained too much too fast, or not explained enough in a short amount of time, and they damn sure didn't give me the option to ask any questions after the fact. I believe their official website is PMIeducation.com. They have the yellow/orange logo with the dot at the top (I say this because it can get confusing, there are alot of PMI's out there). I will say that alot of complaints have come from Duvera Financial, not sure why, as I haven't had a problem out of them, making my monthly payments for the course. I've had more issues out of the financial institution at my local College than I did out of these guys, but I suppose that's neither here, nor there. I just thought it would be nice to have someone shed a little light on the topic.

      Yes, I agree with all of you!!! One thing about Anik that made me lose trust in him is that he like to promote one "shiny product after another" to his list and some of which is garbage and some might work and one thing I have found out being on his list for nearly 2 years is that after some time, the product he promote will be utterly useless as it would become bad link or invalid link.

      So You would be missing out on anything if you unsubscribe from his list.

    MassTrafficX has some really awesome tools in it. Here's what I use the most:
    Domain Expander is useful to find pages under a certain domain
    Related Keywords helps get keyword ideas
    Popup Previewer is nice, but they should add more platform sizes
    Scrapers are where the value is!
    Also, the URL Follower is kinda hidden but nice to have on occassion

    All in all, I've seen parts of MassTrafficX get broken over the years. I would then email support, they would say it's being worked on, then eventually it would work again. For example, the Domain Expander wasn't working for awhile, but they finally fixed it and is working again.

    Now some disappointing points:
    POF spy: As of 4/7/14 the images are broken
    FB spy: Everything here is from 2012-- might as well remove it altogether!
    Site analytics: basically just summarizes Quantcast & Alexa reports

    Hey, I have no regrets here and am satisfied with MassTrafficX

    Just so you know, I am a failed affiliate marketer & am being totally honest here

    I'm a newbie to CPA Marketing. Here is my first campaign results.
    I picked a Home Depot Gift Card Ad from Beachside Ads.
    I used MassTrafficX and pulled 10,180 keywords in about 3 minutes. Worked great!
    I pasted my gift card link into DirectCPV and then the keywords from MassTrafficX
    I set a $5.00 daily budget and max price of $0.015
    I launched at 2:38 pm on May 22nd
    I paused campaign - Noon on June 2nd
    Results: 6,543 views — $98.15 spend — $0.00 commissions
    I went back and discovered my ad was for a survey to get a gift card -- probably not the right kind of ad for my 1st campaign. Newbie Error?
    I'm trying again.
