Media buying not working as i expected

17 replies
Hi Warriors,

I am using Media buying networks to promote my affiliate links (Direct linking).
My banners are being published in 5 different blogs(same niche) and in total They have 120K daily visitors but no one clicks to my ads.My ad looks professional and all ads are in leaderboard.

My opinion is ,I think no one trust banner links or i am doing something wrong.

Thanks.

    What do you mean by professional banners? We all KNOW that ugly converts better. Try making a banner with Paint with a call to action, and I am sure you will start seeing changes!

    yeaps,
    you cant have banner looks very professional. Because users are just banner blinded. You'll need something like what just did from paint. Very amateurish kind of graphics and pictures. Make them feel 'homely' lol

    try to go to google/bing. Type in your niche and click 'Images'
    Viola. Lots pop out

    Your banners may get banner blindness if you have same banners for long time. Try to change your banners and always test your banners.

    As every1 said, you can not expect to get a lot of clicks from same banner. Make sure you always have 3 to 4 different banners to start with. have animated and ugly banners ready so you can split test them.

    If you took the banners the network gave you and thought those might work, well now you know the truth. You have to make your own unique banners and lots of them to make media buying work.

      I am happy that it cost me a small amount of money before i've learnt the truth

    You should perhaps try a landing page and/or rotating banners.. media buying is a tricky thing, can take lots of time to develop the right ad/lp/offer

    Is your banner animated? If they allow any animation make sure you try split testing that...also sometimes too much animation draws too much attention and doesn't make the user want to click. So if you could do like a slight color change within the banner that might be enough to catch their eye and click...hope this helps!

    Maybe you should not put your ads on the same blogs/websites all the time? Try some channel targeted media buys, experiment with frequency capping etc. Pay for your ads on a CPM basis and see and analyse stats which of your partners bring you clicks/conversions.
