    Are you talking about this: https://www.advertising.com/advertis...sored-listings

    That's not a scam, they have good inventory in western geos and some nice placements. But don't be fooled by the low deposit, you'll need to spend a lot before you see ROI - they are serious when they say 'premium' placements, and it is very easy to spend that $100 deposit in an hour.

    It's all very high traffic placements, mostly on news and portal sites, and from what I remember (haven't used them in a year) it is a blind network with CPC starting at 50c min. You need very good budget and strong tracking to make anything on Adsonar work, in my opinion.

    It's two days I am searching for a good display ad network with lower minimum deposit of $100 but could not find anything.
    Some of them are good but have a high CPC traffic.

    Do you know any good network?

    Thanks

    Advertising.com is completely legit and owned by AOL.
    Been using them for a while. Not a platform to test your ads, but the platform to scale. Conversions are there but clicks are expensive.

    When I last visited the site they asked me for a $500 deposit. Where is the $100 offer or how do you get there?

    Never tried them, but if you wish to test it out, only spend a minimal amount of money on their traffic and if you see see that your visitors do stay on your site and show an interest than this company is worth investing more money into.

    Really? Legit? I tried their ppc network a while ago (about 2 years ago) and for auto insurance keywords I was paying around 7 cents per click. None of the traffic converted to a single zip code submit. I might try again to see what they are like now but my first experience was not good.

    Guys! I created a landing page to pre-sell a weight loss CPA offer and want to get traffic from advertising.com. I want to deposit and accept risk just with $100. How do you think about it?

    Thanks

        I think That's mobile advertising network. Currently am searching for a quality ad network like advertising.com but with low CPC rate.

        Thanks

          What kind of weight loss offer are you trying to push? If it is the usual 2 step advertorial with trials, you really don't want to use CPC. Weight loss is a mass appeal offer, which means you need volume more than you need targeting because so many demographics convert. If you put effort into testing ads and placements, you will find that CPM brings you more profit and scalability than any PPC platform (outside of FB and Adwords, but good luck running CPA there without experience).

          Besides, Adsonar now has this disclaimer: "AOL generally will not accept advertising from companies that utilize negative option pricing plans" so you might struggle to get weight loss CPA running there.

          However, the biggest competitive advantage anybody has in CPA is their traffic sources and the data they get from it. Nobody will be revealing the traffic sources they use to convert weight loss, and when you have more experience you'll see why. Instead of asking for traffic sources, you really should try browsing the web via a VPN with the right geo and use wheregoes.com to trace the source of weight loss ads you see. Or try one of the spy tools to give you testing ideas..

          Honestly, nobody is dumb enough to give up their profitable CPA traffic sources and it you really are wasting your time asking about them in public.

    Advertising.com has very high quality traffic. but CPC is also very high and maybe you should spend up to $1000 to test an offer.

    Good Luck
