Is it worth using AdFly to build a list?

by Diice 29 replies
Hey everyone,

although i heard the name tossed around here and there, i never actually took much notice of AdF.ly or what it does. That was until i heard it can be used to blast traffic to your list.

It sounds great, especially when your getting 1000 visitors for less than $5, but im assuming its not all perfect. I have had a fair amount of success online with my list, but i would certainly like to expand it further, and if i can do it quickly and efficiently then obviously im going to try it.

So im asking if there are any drawbacks for this method, blasting people to your squeeze page for AdFly... I am assuming already that if they do sign up for your FREE product then they wont be buyers, just an inactive subscriber to your list. But im not sure and would love if someone could help me out!

Thanks,
-Michael

    Its probably going to vary from niche to niche. I know there's another thread around here about using it for adsense: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...-websites.html

    It looks like the traffic was somewhat responsive. The only real way to know is to try it. By like $10 worth of traffic and see how well it does for you.

    Only drawback is that it'll prolly be untargeted traffic. May not be a bad thing depending on your niche. Worth checking out since it won't cost much. Let us know, eh?

    I've used Adfly with moderate success. It's is important to note that the traffic are
    real people and that it is very cheap, so you can easily test and adjust your campaign
    accordingly. Some points to take into consideration:

    1. Adfly traffic is as diverse as possible. For best results, you should have an offer
    that appeals to the widest group of people. Only tiny percent of people know of SEO,
    even less of its importance, but lets say, weight loss, money making, health is much
    more appealing to general public.

    2. Visitors are going somewhere when shown your page and it is for only few seconds.
    You need to make it very eye catching and attention-grabbing to get them to stop and
    check it out and enter their info.

    3. More than half of all the people who opt-in won't proceed to confirm their subscription.
    So, for maximum results use single opt-in.

      Thanks, I found this is very helpful, Exel.

    Good - its cheap. Bad - its not targeted at all, and can be unresponsive. So cheap, it doesn't hurt to give it a try.

    I used it before; the most unresponsive, crap I've seen in my life.

    And that from several uses - wouldn't have done it more than once but I was just doing a little testing.

    I'm sure some people do great with it, but from my experience, I would have to say its a waste of time.

    adfly is only good to get cheap traffic to your site so you can drip links and for other seo purposes , pretty sure you will lose money if you are trying to convert something or list build.
