MediaTraffic RON Campaign Disaster

10 replies
I started a MediaTraffic RON campaign for a iPhone email submit offer.
It was not direct linking and I had setup a well tested landing page.
I had setup a daily limit of $10.
Within 2 hours, the campaign drained around $26 off my balance.
MediaTraffic reports ~5000 visits, but no visits tracked by tracking202 and Analytics.
I have deactivated the campaign.
Any similar experience ?
Anyone had any successful RON campaign on MediaTraffic or any other network. ?

    I also started a RON campaign on MediaTraffic for a CPA offer (health niche).
    I set the daily limit at $10 and they drained $33 dollars from my account within a few hours. The worst part is that this CPA offer had 10,000 views and not a single conversion. Usually this CPA offers converts pretty well.

    I also remember trying to link to a Facebook fan page (cheap likes I figured) and they disapproved the url, but still charged my account after I forget to deactivate the campaign.

    Overall I am pretty disapppointed with MediaTraffic. Their traffic doesn't seem to be any better quality then the one you receive from Ad.fly or any other cheap source of traffic that basically sends you junk traffic that doesn't convert.

    I am still going to do some testing but I am not sure if I will keep using MediaTraffic after all these negative experiences.

    Don't buy RON traffic unless you are willing to take a large loss whilst optimizing.

    I can't tell you why your views weren't tracked.However I can tell you, that it's not really ideal to use RON on a small budget, because you can spend this money very fast. On sitescout they warn you before you even use it..

    I wouldn't say similar, but RON is typically a bad place to be unless you have tons of money to just drop into testing by throwing things against the wall to see what will stick

    Running campaigns via RON traffic needs

    a) large budget
    b) time
    c) a lot of data

    You will want to target by both contextual and demographic if possible, I highly recommend not going with this route unless you have a lot of experience in this area

    Stick to single adblocks on websites . It is also common to overspend with RON - the reach is that large most advertising companies will warn you of this before your campaign goes live

    I am also using Media Traffic RON traffic and get a 40% CTR on my lander and 200% ROI on it. So it's possible to make it work / worth it, although the daily budget is just an estimate and you will always receive more traffic.

    RON campaigns go well with broad offers in countries where it is hard to get traffic. Think Asia.
