    I've never found POF traffic good. It's as bad as Facebook. However, what they do have is absolutely tons of it!! There must be a reason for the dip though, I would leave it a few days before making an conclusions.

    I am new to PoF and in my first two weeks lost about $240. Last week I made $265 profit on $69 spend.

    However, the last couple of days things are not converting as well as they were.

    Secret is to be super targeted in your demographics. So that means lots of split testing until you hit a pot of gold.

    I'm conducting a few tests with POF now, but things are going slowly because I'm very busy and can't dedicate enough time to it. However, I'm getting good results with them. I have a campaign with a positive ROI and another that's breaking even.

    The traffic is good, and I think that I'm facing a few troubles just because they work with cpm and not cpc. I'm a cpc minded guy (have never worked with cpm in the past), so I'm trying to figure out how to work with this model. But I think that I'll be doing well with them soon.

    Maybe it would be a prudent move to build a list, that way you can warm the prospect up to signing up for anything you recommend?

      I still haven't tried to use POF for list building, but I think that it's 100% possible and, probably, you could still get a positive ROI if you had a good OTO.

        Hi,

        PoF is getting more crowded. Too many advertisers.

        Have u tried using a landing page?

    I have used POF for a few offers: Dating, and Auto Insurance being the two. Have had a few conversions on a low paying auto insurance offer and then it stopped. Changed to a higher paying auto insurance offer and have had no conversions from many clicks. Tried changing demo's and split testing different demo's and no success. Probably wont use them again, unless someone knows of an amazing offer that converts like crazy?

      I've rotated creatives, headlines, images, descriptions to maximize ROI and adaptate to the cpm model.

      At least 2 more people commented with me about this "sudden death" of POF, they had converting campaigns and suddently they start to get 0 convertions.

      I will leave POF alone for some time now.
      Mário,

      Having a good offer is not enough. You need to understand the mindset of visitors and offer them what they are looking for.

      If you're promoting dating offers, the first thing you need to remember is that POF is a dating site, and it's completely free. So if you simply offer them another dating site that's paid you won't get any conversions even after a thousand clicks.

      Choose a specific public (e.g. women above 30, men between 22 and 25, etc) and offer them something else. For example, what do you think that women above 30 want? Young handsome guys for casual meeting or established men for a serious relationship? Obviously, the second option. Now, how can you offer them what they want? Find the answer for this question and you will have a positive ROI.

      Everything is the same as before (with the exception of higher competition among advertisers). There really can't be any drop in the quality of traffic -- it's the same people looking for love `

        As new courses on POF and people awareness about POF is growing , it sounds natural to expect more competition .

          I've been hearing some complaints about over saturation on POF lately. The competition on POF has stepped up greatly after FB changed their CPM/CPC policy and layed the smack down on publishers (dropping daily spending limits). However, there's still money being made on POF. I like to think of my strategies as thinking outside the box.

      Hey Mario,

      It is also advisable to select CPA offers which are suitable for a specific group of people . Make also sure that you set your targeting options to fit the CPA offer.

      One more thing...

      Try to split test multiple versions of your Title , image and description of your ads .

      I hope it helps .

      That's a very difficult demographic to market to, especially on POF.. try something simpler, link younger guys

    You are pushing people from a free dating site to a paid one.... are you using a landing page to stress the benefit of upgrading? If not that's why you're getting scrubbed.
