PPV Marketing - The latest hot trend!

Hey Warriors,

Earlier I started a thread with the title "Mediatraffic Users", but it wasn't getting enough attention, so I thought I would start another thread with a more eye catching title.
I'm mainly an article marketer, so I should know that the title is important :-) Let's see how it goes.

Anyways, here's my question. After buying a couple of WSOs lately, I wanted to embark on PPV (for those who don't know - Pay Per View - all those annoying pop-ups and pop-unders you run into. No they're not illegal, there's a difference between spyware and adware. This is adware, the good stuff).

I know PPV has huge potential because I know guys making huge $$$$ out of it. I started with Clicksor (doesn't require a deposit), then with MediaTraffic (requires a $200 deposit) and if these work out I'll go for TrafficVance (requires a 1K deposit).

So far, I'm struggling to get 'clicks' to my ads. And when I do get that rare click, they don't necessarily convert. I know I have to match the right kind of offer to the right kind of traffic etc etc.

If there's anybody with some experience on this and would like to share it/give some advice on how to best utilize these traffic sources, that would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers!
Chucky

    Great question. I'm very interested to see is anyone has generated profits form pop-under advertising. In my experience, it's a waste of money.

    Very few clicks, and they don't convert!

    Anyone have some strategies to take advantage of this traffic?

    So, you want to sell me another way to easily make "X" dollars in "X" days? ROFL too funny! IM success requires hard work and lots of time. Most newbies do not survive the steep learning curve. Anyone who says otherwise is probably selling you a fantasy.

      Yes it does work. I was recently crushing it with an offer, spending about $100 an hour.

      My daily net profits were between $600-$1000 a day from one offer from one site.

      I won't say what offer or which network... in fact ppv works so well I'd probably charge 10k or more to train on it.... better yet I'd probably charge more and anyone that gives training on how to do ppv marketing is crazy because if you have the right tools, excellent tracking you can make a fortune.

      Sadly, the offer that was killing it for me, the site that was converting had tech problems within the network (or at least the ppv provider claims this)

      I've recently gotten smart though. I think the best pay and the proper way to really bring home the bread with ppv is to grab yourself a URL rotator, hook up with Neverblue b/c they have easy uploadable pixels and pick and pick a theme... lets say "money and finance, more specifally loans"

      Run about 5-10 offers that have anything to do with getting a loan or money on the URL rotator witin the ppv network. Narrow it down to the best converting offer, drop ther others then start shaving off the sites that aren't converting.

      Also if you don't know this, most networks refer to ppv traffic as DLS traffic and a lot of offers accept it, if they don't ask your affiliate manager and just ask for an approval to send DLS traffic.

      I still make great money with ppv on zip submits, but the big big money is in the $9-$32 payouts.

      I forget to mention, it's also probably wise to get a URL scraper, as uploading or cutting and pasting one URL to target at a time is a pain in the a@@. You'll need to run about 500-1000 URL's per campaign to see decent traffic, especially from media traffic or addonnetwork.

      I doubt anyone would tell you which offers they are running and on which networks if they are banking, I certainly wouldn't, but I am willing to help.. however I am not going to hand over the pie for free

        Hey Thanks sp33dr4ge88.

        No I was not (I don't think anybody is) expecting somebody to come out and give their niche. The tips you gave on URL rotator, URL scraper, DLS etc. are very much appreciated.

        So can you not use the URL rotator that Neverblue provides themselves? I haven't looked into pixels yet, but will definitely do that.

        You may be already aware of this, but if you are not, this may have been what happened with that 'Killer Offer'. I have heard that affiliate managers 'steal' good offers when they find a killer offer like that. The 'technical problems' certainly could have been something the AM made up to get rid of you, so that he gets to cash in on your hard work entirely by himself now.

        I've heard that you can 'cloak your keywords through prosper202' and that way AMs have no idea which kw are bringing traffic to you. Hope this would be helpful to somebody (if sp33dr4ge88 already knew about it).

        I only had like 60 URLs and no wonder I only got 1 view with my first campaign. So I should definitely work on increasing that to about 1K ha? The only problem is that when I do that, not all of them are necessarily 'laser targeted'.

        All in all, thanks very much for an informative post sp33dr4ge88.

        If more people chip in with idea like that, this would turn out to be a great thread.

          It wasn't the AM, it was the actual ppv network.

          Yes you can use prosper to cloak, but the way the ppv network was setup, it was using a site ID and there are normally 20-30 sites within a site ID all similar to whatever keywords and URL's you specified.

          I do believe they had problems.... maybe not, who knows... we'll never know. I did notice that 85% of my profitable sites were then targeted by their partners where I was getting half a penny per view, the bids were now 5 cents for top position for most of my profitable sites that I targeted.

          Coincidence not sure.

          Prosper is good for PPC marketing and I use it, but PPV a bit more difficult to use. You have to essentially assign a subid for every URL, and that could be 1,000 different subid's but there is a program to mass upload a subid for each URL, search "tracking ppv offers with propser" in Goolge and you'll find it.

          Success in CPA requires, tech savy, stellar tracking, good copy writer, decent web design skills (if not you'll have to outsource) and consitent marketing research followed by non-stop testing. Oh and a solid budget to back up your testing.

          It sounds easy.... but when you boil it down the guys who are making great money are the ones who have all of those skills sets. That's why not everyone is making 1k a day with cpa.

          Hi

          You should most definitely use some form of Tracking system to hide all your keywords from prying eyes!

          Prosper 202 will do the job.

        It will not go so fast if you use URLs instead of KW. I have one campaign only and over the weekend I'm struggling to spend 20 cents :-(

        Would have been an achievement if there were conversions worth $$$$, but unfortunately not :-(

    I know which WSO you are talking about. I'm working it right know as well.

    My business partner and I are working with MediaTraffic, we've spent $100 and so far, ZERO conversions. It's definitely a learning process.

    We've done a few tweaks to our campaigns which the manager at MediaTraffic suggested, we are waiting to see if anything has changed.

    We are not too impressed with PPV so far.

      Hey Fox I know which WSO your talking about and I got a refund after loosing quite a bit of money on it. Dont be fooled by the reviews on it. When I left an honest review the author went nuts and I removed it. I was still convinced PPV was profitable and after digging deep and finding someone to help one on one I was suprised that everyone says the opposite of whats conatined within the WSO, for example as mentioned in this thread you need to scrape up to 1000 urls, as well as that a lot of people I know are using a maximum of 10 keywords some aren't even using any keywords at all just URL's. I wouldn't take 100's of keywords as suggested.

      Can somebody recommend a good preferably free URL scraper. Im using adwords digger but its only allowing up to 100.

      Dave

        Hey Dave,
        I don't know if you and I are talking about the same WSO. The only reason I've not yet asked for a refund is because they introduced me to the method. I too don't think they do a good job describing how to do it step by step, but at least they've shown me the method. Now it's up to me to figure it out with the help of other guys here.
        I was scared to put more URLs, so I only put like 60 and I've so far only had like 8 views. The secret sauce indeed looks like having more URLs.

        The tool I used to scrape URLs is from this WSO http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...st-friend.html

        It's 20 bucks and did a great job.

        I'm also sending you a PM.

        Cheers and good luck!

    if your doing PPV and you spent 100$ and no conversions...then you REALLY have to study harder.

    Find out EXACTLY what kind of people will be interested in the offer, test 3-5 offers at a time using a rotator, get better at doing keyword research.

    Ive gotten conversion with only $10...if you spent $100 and didn't got any...then your doing something wrong...totally wrong.

    And remember not all networks work the same...cus the people that downloaded the adware might be totally different groups.

    And yes you are right...I asked my AM and he confirmed me that there are 2 guys that make $7.000+ a day with contextual traffic.

    So don;t worry...the potential is there...you just have to get better at it...and me too for that fact

      Hey Marian,

      Can you please elaborate on the rotator? Is this something that Mediatraffic provides or something you link up externally?

      Cheers!

    Im getting one done for myself just now (good to have programmer friends ) and from what he told me...I just have to host it on a domain that I own, send all the traffic there and it will automatically split the traffic randomly and equally between the offers.

    But from what I know theres a software called Adtrackz that some PPV marketers recommend...you can try that one out.

    I have used both MT and adon, however didn't make much, however I have been using zango for the last 1 year now and converted very well, even after all the rumours that zango is going to close down.

    Thank you guys for your replies. Here's another question.
    Do you direct link (I'm assuming most of you do) or do your own landing pages (LP) or use white labeling for CPA offers when you use PPV. I guess in Adwords you have no option but to use LP or white labeling, but for PPV I don't suppose there are any restrictions for direct linking.

    Cheers!
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[852998].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author PPCExpert

    Correct, on PPV no rules on direct linking -- however there are some merchants that have direct relationship with PPV networks, meaning the merchant is directly promoting and thus the network will NOT allow for you as an aff to us the same DL. I found this for 3 merchants within maxbounty, so in that case you have to be LP, but most of the time you are good.

    Ok Guys, another thought came across my mind.
    The 'problem' with these pop-ups/unders I guess would be that they cannot be seen to the 'customer', especially if they're pop-unders.
    What do you think about adding some audio to capture the attention? If you say the right thing, may be you win !?!?

    Anybody?

    I haven't tried PPV yet but also don't you have to consider the size of the window as it pops up, like have a page that's only 350px by 500px or whatever? Otherwise even if you send direct to offer won't the landing page be obscured?

    Not sure, just asking as that seems to make sense. Can anyone confirm you need a landing page of a certain size?

    Haven't heard it called "DLS" traffic, but heard it called "contextual" traffic. I'm testing PPV now, but it takes work. A lot of people make loads with it and just do direct-to-merchant without bothering with landing pages. In my opinion that would save a ton of time when testing and is one of the things that makes it much better than PPC. Then, if you find a good offer and are getting conversions, you can test a landing page, if you want, but it's not necessary. I say, if you want to try PPV get some very guided coaching.

    you can't do Audio, video, pop-ups, pop-unders, sliding pop-up. they don't allow it.

    And be VERY carefull of one thing....make sure that the offer is seen almost completely in the window that pop-ups.

    I know some people that spent THOUSANDS of dollars before they realised this stupid mistake....their offer was so big that in the pop-up window only half the headline was seen.

    Might wanna try this out...might be an answer as to why your not getting any conversions.

    i've been dabbling in ppv for a few weeks now and so far i haven't seen any conversions from clicksor traffic. however I haven't been rotating offers either.
    i'm going to try addonnetwork and media traffic, rotate offers and use 1000 urls.
    i'll also be getting some ppv coaching after i move. right now i can't focus on anything but packing and getting my new place ready.

    Clicksor is the hardest traffic to convert for most niches. I've never got clicksor converting profitably. PPV does work, although I hate the term PPV, it's really CPV, (cost per view).

          Ya thanks for the link. Unfortunately my hostgator account won't let me install Prosper202. Something new with hostgator apparently. Something to do with partitioning of mysql databases.

      It is a hot trend.

      Promoting CPA offers has been the latest trend in IM and the methods for promoting CPA offers is lined to that trend.

      PPV/CPV is nothing new but the increased interest in it is.

    Anyone had any success with MediaTraffic yet? I hear conflicting stories but all those who say they've earned good money, they can't all be wrong can they?

    I think it has to do with how you target and going for urls as keywords. I'll try to get a campaign up this weekend and report back - hopefully in the black! lol

      Per my experience is hot or cold. I've run with them for 2 years now some days are great then a few days are just crap. I've tried to nail down variables, days of week ect. But ultimately I think it's the ebb and flow of publishers into the network that creates this variance.

      PPV can be great but definitely requires a firm understanding of the model and controlled testing processes.

      best of luck!

      Yes, sure pop-under and pop-over have been around for a long time, not new at all.

      But if you call it something else, and make it a "secret hot trend" and "guarantee success" by just following a "simple formula", then you can make a WSO and help to educate some newbies!

      So what if people have been doing this for years? You need to repackage it to sell your how-to-make-megabucks IM info-product.

      So, you want to sell me another way to easily make "X" dollars in "X" days? ROFL too funny! IM success requires hard work and lots of time. Most newbies do not survive the steep learning curve. Anyone who says otherwise is probably selling you a fantasy.

      Not exactly the same as typical CPM. There are very similar and i would call them cousins.

      CPM is about "impressions", while CPV is about "views".

      Impressions are generally banners or ads on websites in the form of a graphic image that is typically positioned in a margin or other space reserved for ads

      Views are generally Pop-over or Pop-under windows. Some are full-size and some are smaller minimized windows.

      Additionally, CPV (Cost per View) incorporates the concept of keyword targeting with the low cost CPM (Cost per Thousand) model.

      CPV technology matches your "targeted" keywords with the information that the consumer is searching for and then... instantly delivers the user to your web site via Pop-over/under. You only pay when a consumer views your site,

      See the difference?

      Regards,

      John

        Thanks TE2, just one thing you missed - URL targeting, which was probably unheard of before the CPV/PPV days ...pls correct me if I'm wrong....I wasn't around those days :-)

        And also, in CPM (I'm talking about banner advertising), you have a deal with the publisher/webmaster. But in PPV, you don't have a deal with him. You're just STEALING his traffic. If you target 1000 URLs, then you're stealing the legitimate traffic that these websites have earned either from search engine rankings or PPC. That's why this is BAD A*S technology.
        And again, if XXXX.com gets 10,000 views a day and you by a banner on that site, your banner will get 10,000 impressions, that is one impression for every visitor. But in the case of PPV, out of these 10,000 viewers only those who have adware installed in their computer will see your pop-up.
        I think that's quite a few differences between CPM and CPV.

          Actually, URL targeting is used in PPC as well. Some refer to it as the Alexa technique. Basically, find URL's with lots of traffic for your topic and use the URL's as keywords in your adword "Search" campaign. You can also use "Placement Targeting" to specify where your ads are displayed.

          Mostly accurate... as a visitor can load that page over and over again, each time they do, that is one impression. ie, A visitor clicking from page to page or simply refreshing could have your ad displayed multiple times.

          And there is more to it (and that I am not revealing).

          I'll leave you a hint - it is all about targeting.

          Regards,

            Thanks a lot John, hmmm....it's all about targeting....and you're probably talking about something more than just targeting URLs I presume.

        Hey you newbies out there,

        We have to learn a lesson from TE2 (hope you don't get offended TE2, take it as a compliment).
        See how he ASKS for thanks and see how many thanks he has got. That's quite a lot of thanks for a
        The lesson?
        When you're building websites/blogs you want links and comments from people.

        So ASK for them. ASK for links, ASK them to leave comments. And they will, a lot more than when you don't ASK for it. I first heard this from Tim Gorman, and now I've seen it with my own eyes from TE2.

        Thanks indeed for demonstrating that John. I hope more people catch it.

    I was looking to start a few campaigns with Clicksor, since I didn't want to put up $200 for MediaTraffic and $1k for Trafficvance, but I wanted to know a little bit more about this company before I started.

    So, I sent my account manage with Clicksor an email asking about how they worked. Here is part of the email that they sent me...

    "Please note that we are not an adware company. All of the ads are displayed
    on the publishers' websites in the concept of understanding the content.
    Clicksor does not display the ads through adware/spyware because the quality
    of the ads is not high and affects the branding of your website.

    CPV is our Full page Popunder service, which is a totally different ad
    format than Google Adsense, so there is no similarity in the ad display.
    Your Pop under ad will open up in a new window when the visitors landed on
    the publishers' websites."

    So what I get from what they sent me is just as I expected. Website owners who instead of putting Adsense ads from Google, are placing ads similar to Adsense from Clicksor. Now, it's not hard to figure out that WAY more people use Adsense than Clicksor, so just how much reach can you get with Clicksor?

    Now, if you use their Pop under ads they still only show on related sites in the Clicksor system, so you may not get as many impressions or conversions since it's not an adware company.

    Am I understanding this fully?

    This may be why its a lot harder to get profitable campaigns with Clicksor than other adware companys.

      Hey lherbal,

      Have no doubt about the quantity of traffic Clicksor can bring. At least for the one (or two) niches that I tried with them, I got tonnes of traffic within a very short period. Conversions.....that's a different story. I'm not going to downgrade on their quality of traffic just because I didn't get any conversions.
      May be I didn't match the type of offer for their audience. They're not transparent about their publisher network. If I knew what it was like, then may be I could have targeted some better ads to them. But hey, that's not how it happened unfortunately.
      I hope your offers are the right ones for their traffic.
      Chucky
      P.S. I'm yet to see a positive comment about Clicksor traffic conversions. So please comment if you have already seen success on Clicksor, thanks!

      Referring to lherbal's post, Clicksor's Popunder traffic is different than Google Adsense. First of all, we have different group of publishers than Google. Secondly, our ad is displaying on a Full page Popunder basis instead of banners.

      We have recieved feedbacks from Advertisers that our content targeted traffic by websites are converting better for them than adware traffic due to the fact that adware traffic contains repeated visitors and unauthorized ads on sites.

      The targeting of your ad campaigns with us plays an important role with our contextual targeted campaign. Therefore, we welcome you to contact us for recommendations and suggestions. I believe that you have received a fast response from your experience in contacting us.

      If you would like to get further information or concerns on our service, please feel free to contact your Account Manager. An Account is free to signup at Clicksor and a dedicated account manager will be assigned.

    Did just check out Clicksor and did notice that they do differentiate the CPM and CPV.

    Thing is, this network in particular requires 5,000 page views per day. That is pretty steep when you're trying to recruit and push the technique on to a newbie.

      It varies from network to network. The best ones like MT allow you to select the frequency and give you several choices; typically in a drop-down menu.

      MT offers:
      1/12
      1/24
      1/48
      1/72
      1 Week
      1 month

    I ran my first campaigns with Clicksor last week...each one used a few thousand exact match keywords and no URL/category views. Thousands of impressions, no conversions. I can't comment on whether it's a quality of traffic issue, since I haven't run anywhere else. I have a campaign set up at adonnetwork, but can't seem to contact anyone there to get it approved and running

    The campaigns were a trial offer on a health product, credit score improvement offer and a ringtone offer. If there's a good niche for Clicksor traffic, I haven't zeroed in on it yet.

    But I have to say that Clicksor is great to work with and easy to contact.

      Unfortunately MT has no exact match. I talked (chatted) with Hugo (the very helpful online live help) and he said they don't have it. What they have is something like a broad match for keywords although for URLs they do have four options.

      What I ended up doing with Clicksor was to identify those sites that bring you tons of traffic and 'eliminate' them from your campaign. That did the trick for me as far as burning up my daily budget, but it didn't fix the problem of 'no conversions' :-)

      You go to "Edit Existing Campaigns" --> select the campaign you want --> scroll down to 'Current destinations' --> on the right hand side, next to your URL there are two buttons called ROI and modify --> click the modify button --> then that area expands to show 'advanced features' --> you'll see a button called test it --> Press it and that's it!

    Buhry, I think tracking systems can be hard to figure out sometimes if you're new to it. I think if you use hostgator, it should be fine if you install correctly. But, hmm, I'm not an expert at this so I'd like to help you. However, to help someone who could help would need much more information about what your problems are, so yeah. Perhaps you could PM somebody or ask them to PM you if they want to help you with tracking. Again, I'm not sure I could.

    Well, to be a bit more specific my problem is this. I assume that I am supposed to use the tracking 202 affiliate conversion tracking software? Anyway, when I click on the tracking 202 app everything looks to be working, but then when I click on ''setup'' I get the following error message: ''Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/buhry/public_html/topfinancenow.com/tracking202/setup/ppc_accounts.php on line 99''.

    So I don't get it set up. I read somewhere that there had been some problems with using prosper 202 on hostgator unless you had a dedicated server. But then again I managed to install it on my domain so that might not be the problem.

          Simple - Delete the ones that aren't profitable.

          When I start a campaign, I will spend up to twice the offer's payout to test it.

          Say I have an offer that pays $10, then I will spend $20 testing it.

          If no conversions, then I will stop that campaign.

          If I made a sale(s) then I will analyze the keywords/URL's/categories for profitability and delete the ones that didn't convert.

          Again, my rule of thumb is double the payout. Other people spend more and some less on their testing. Go with what you are comfortable with but make sure you get enough data to make a good decision. I recommend at least double the payout for your test spend.

          Regards,

          John

            I'm wondering what other people use as testing strategies. Right now I have about 10 different offers running with a $10 per day cap on each. I don't want to throw money away, but I also want to be sure I'm giving these offers a sufficient chance to succeed. Thoughts?

            So once you've tweaked the ones that convert to hopefully improve your ROI, do you then run the newly tweaked converting campaigns for another "double the payout" round? I ask because I have campaigns that are converting, but still with a negative ROI and if I continue on this track I will eventually go broke

              If they are not positive, then I try to get a break even on the next go around. If it keeps improving then I keep running and tweaking.

              At some point it will be obvious whether you should keep going or not.

        John, your posts are really helpful! but I think you have not wrote what to do after you've found a winner?
        I know that I have to eliminate the non converted URLs and move to other PPV networks.
        But how to really expand the campaign?!

        Thanks, Andras

    Any offer can do, just because for example Traffic Vance gets is users from games downloads that doesn't mean you can't sell diet offers.

    What most people forget is that: although the son/daughter might have downloaded the game, you have a fairly large chance that the Dad/Mom will use that computer also, even for only a couple of hours a day.

    As for tracking cpv traffic, be careful if you're on a shared hosting plan. You pretty much need a dedicated server to track cpv since there is so much traffic going through your tracking link. (If you're doing even medium volume). You'll get kicked off a shared hosting plan pretty quickly if you take down their server a couple times.

      Hm, that kinda blows. Hey ppc-coach, could you check your pm inbox?

      Also, does anyone know how long it takes before a completed lead is registered with mediatraffic or the cpa networks?

      I've gotten 600 views for a campaign I launched about 4 hours ago.. But mediatraffic tells me my ROI is 0.00, and ads4dough too... So any hope for me here, or do I need to change my tactics? I am promoting a google biz opp. offer by the way.

      I used an url-scraper to gather a lot of URLs and also added some relevant 3 word keywords... I am using a pop up, not a pop under.

        If I were you, I would take out those 3 word keywords. I suspect I will see a dramatic reduction in the quantity of traffic. Besides, MT only has broad match, so I suspect you're drawing all kinds of non-targeted traffic with those kw.

        I'm talking with the experience of only 2 campaigns, but you have nothing to lose by doing it.

Also, does anyone know how long it takes for completed leads to register with the cpa network? I'm very new to this and haven't made my first conversion yet wich is why I'm throwing all these noob-questions around.

    I also can't figure out how to track :/

    John and Chunky,

    Which better pop-up or pop-under?
    Only url keywords that you bid? How can i get url keywords for outside US traffics? now i only use alexa and quantcast.

    have you tried promote clickbank products with ppv? convert or not? now i promote clickbank products (game and learning foreign language), i got lot traffics but still no conversion. May be i will follow your suggestion, today 1 lost 1x payout.

      Pop-up (its actually a "pop-over" which is a fully functional window which cannot be blocked)

      Only url keywords that you bid? How can i get url keywords for outside US traffics? now i only use alexa and quantcast.
      I tend to bid on URL's mostly so that I can really target my campaigns. I use a tool called a URL scraper to find targets. Fellow warrior Robert Matthew sells the one I use. Look for his WSO for "urlkeywordz".

    Buhry, how is mediatraffic going to know your conversions? YOU have to tell THEM what your conversions are if you want to set up their ROI tracking. They do not have access to your CPA network information. How would they unless you tell them?

    Great thread! Does anyone have a comprehensive list of PPV/CPV networks? Do they lower your CPM if your conversions rise? (Instead of $3 per thousand, maybe $2.50 ..etc)

    Kind of a dumb question here, but anyway:

    Since CPV is cost per VIEW, do you get charged if the person doesn't actually VIEW the ad? I mean, if the window pops in the task bar and the person doesn't open the window to view it, but instead right-clicks and then chooses Close, does that still count? Does the window loading constitute a "view"?

    Or do all CPV ads pop over the window, forcing the person to view them?

      Brad...

      If the window loads, yes, that does counts as a view. But, keep in mind, this window will be a pop up or pop under that opens in a new browswer or tab.

      It can't be blocked and, even though it counts when the window is being loaded, 9 out of 10 times that window won't even be noticed until later on anyway. It's non intrusive, is what I'm trying to say, and the entire offer landing page will be in plain view.

        Also as an FYI, Findology's user interface is the same as DirectCPV's. So if you are using either one of them, you will know what the other one looks and functions like.

        Yes, it's counted as a view. Every time your page is popped, you will be debited one impression (aka view). It does not matter how fast the user closes it.

          I used to promote DirectCPV. But I've learned that they send a whole lot of junk traffic. Now, I only stick with well knowns... Adon, Media Traffic and Traffic Vance.

          Clicksor has NEVER converted for me. But Media Traffic? Man, it's HOT! Traffic Vance converts even faster than them but they don't accept anyone unless you have a referral. (By the way, anyone needing a referral for TV PM me after you've sign up and I'll send them a referral).

          But, if you get on Traffic Vance, you HAVE to spend $1k a month or else they won't approve you. Only sign up if you already make good money with PPV on other networks and you're ready to step it up a notch.

          Keep in mind too, that your page will load completely in most cases because it loads in a pop up that doesn't take over your current screen, or a pop under that usually isnt' seen until later on by the visitor.

              Media Traffic is my number one converter, actually. Well, I lie. Traffic Vance is the best but you'll also pay more per view. If you're not converting it has to be something to do with the method you use to find good keywords or URL's.

                I used LazerURL to pull targeted URL's from the big 3. Then in media traffic I only targtted domains/document/path and serach queries and I never bid on the root domain.

                For ex, I found 3 gift cards offers for walmart, kmart and bestbuy. So I threw them into Prosper202 and rotated them, and I grabbed all the indexed pages of walmart, target, kmart, and best buy for my Keywords. I would spend like 10.00 to make $3.00, and I even targeted the best time of day that these offers converted /per my AM. I mean, was doing anything wrong?

                As I babbled on about in my other thread, I've sunk in over $1000 in PPV and I'm still not making a profit. I'm following what I think are decent strategies for choosing targets, but I just can't get things to stick. I really wish I knew what aspect I was doing wrong: the offer, the targets, or the landing page.

          Our new interface for DirectCPV should be ready to go next week. URLs and Keywords will be broken out into separate campaigns for easier management. You will be able to list all your keywords and urls on one page for easier management and will have the ability to upload a list to disable keywords instead of unticking everything which can be a big pain in the ass. You will also be able to view all the competitor rankings and bids finally without having to click on a link.

          We'll also have a toolbox where we will give you access to scrape a ton of competitor domains, quantcast top 1 million and the 80 million live domains on the internet. We'll also have our spider tool ready to go soon too and our keyword suggestion tool done.

            I started my first CPV campaign a few months ago with DirectCPV, and even though I haven't yet seen a positive return on my investment, I will stick with them for a while longer, while I learn more about the nuances of properly setting up and executing a successful PPV/CPV campaign.

            It is nice to hear of the many NEEDED changes to the interface, which I found to be a bit clunky and unnecessarily difficult to use at times. I have already noticed some of the changes in the back office, and the others that you describe will definitely make the user experience more bearable, and hopefully more profitable as well.

Does the window loading constitute a "view"?

      Or do all CPV ads pop over the window, forcing the person to view them?

      Brad
      With DirectCPV, they show as full screen interstitial ads over the site, nothing pops. It seems to work better than pops because people tend to close them quicker.

    PPV is a killer. I've stopped using PPC a long time ago and I'm not planning on going back to it...not until PPV becomes unprofitable for me which, so far, isn't the case.

    $5K a day with PPV isn't hard at all. Once you know how to use it, you start off small then build your way up. People should definitely look into it.

    One of the problem I see is that the landing page of the offers are larger than the 750 * 550 window, so the viewer cannot see the entire offer, I am not sure should I create a bridge page since that will lower the conversion as well.

    guys
    I am a ppv marketer for over a year. i make over 15k/M from ppv marketing only !
    all these networks are good but only one is great - TRAFFIC VANCE.
    The only problem is you can't get in there unless you have someone to reffer you that spends over $50 a day and a $1000 first deposit.

    well guess what ? it is your lucky day - I have a very good reputation there and i am willing to reffer only 10 people in there.
    I must say that i don't get anything from Traffic Vance when i send them someone.
    all i want is to make more people happy ! really !

    so,
    if you are a serious marketer and want to get in Traffic vance PM me with your full name and email please.

    Note that Traffic Vance are not accepting new members from Asia & Middle east right now , and you must have a legit website (no adult,gambling etc..)

      It's the offer your promoting and the landing page you're sending them to. Plus, you may know about that method I showed you, but you're still not looking for the right keywords to get URL's. If you were, you'd be converting.

      Yeah, Traffic Vance is awesome. I've had the Vice President of Traffic Vance Jonathan Vogel as a guest on a few of my webinars and we've become great friends. He's given me a lot of neat tips for his network.

      If guys are spending $10k a day on there, trust me, money is being made. My margins on Traffic Vance are at least 400% profit.

        MediaTraffic has also done very badly for me, definitely not profitable traffic for the way I am using it.

        I tried pop over, pop under for e-mail submit offers, product offers, did a lot of testing, so there must be some very subtle tricks that others are using that I cant figure out.

      I wanted to chime in with some results. I like sharing so here it is

      First off my primary focus is and has always been primarily zip/email submits.

      Media Traffic -

      I converted a few teeth whitening offers, then nothing after that. I tested about $200 more on the teeth whitening offers with a review site and I just couldn't convert anymore so I scratched that one.

      Tested the walmart gift card offer, free iphone, laptops ect... all zips and it was up and down for both keyword and URL. Some days I was on top and others I was just under even.

      I believe finding the right zip or email submit in media will work, it just sucks going through 100 different offers to find it and tailoring each test to specific keywords and domains so you really can't rotate to see what fits.

      I tested a few insurance offers, car insurance and debt relief and nothing... again these were zips submits.

      Still going at it with media traffic, I know it works it's just a matter of testing and digging for gold.

      Clicksor -

      Back in April and May I crushed it with any offer I am sure you're all aware of. Sadly clicksor does not allow it's advertisers access to publishers, so the site that was pulling for me mysteriously dropped out of the network never to be seen again, only to be ID'd with a number. After 5 months of them telling me the publisher's site was down I just gave up. I believe they are telling the truth as I have a good relationship with them.

      Ran other zips and email submits with clicksor with success. I will tell you it's a painful to find profitable ones. If you're going to do it test at least 5-10 at a time and have deep pockets, but you can find ones that convert and then it makes up for all the testing dollars lost, or at least that's my philosophy.

      Summary

      - I am still testing offers daily like a mad scientist, both zip/email and pay per sale offers. I avg around $80-$150 daily profit and I sink most of it back into more and more testing hoping to find more gold.

      - Recently I was doing about $300-$450 daily with the big 3 search engines. Like many I've lost my G account, thefore I had to start over again. Yes it was painful to lose $300 and sometimes $600 daily profits, but in retrospect I was relying on one source of traffic and this source dictated my income. Now, to be honest, I am thankful that I have becuase it's opened up so many other advertising sources I'd of never looked for and I don't recommend relying on one source of traffic either.

      -I started out being slamed back down to $5 daily profits and have thus far began rebuiling without the big G and my best day so far has been $170 profit. Where there's a will, there's a way.

      I'll keep you posted on my progress.

    Does anyone know how to track a campaign on MediaTraffic using pop-ups ONLY (no kws) and using Tracking202?

    I understand there is a way to do it, but having trouble with specifics on the set up.

    Or, has anyone used HyperTracker on MT with Pop-ups only?

    Any help appreciated.

      I think you just turn on "use target passthrough" and then tracking202 picks it up from there. It has native support for MT

    PPV advertising is great, I am really surprised that people are still focusing so much on PPC.
    I've been using DirectCPV, and while they were sending a lot of junk before like PPVGuru was saying, i've been finding that it's getting a lot better. I think more people are finding out about the company, and that's generating higher quality traffic.
    I used to think that PPV advertising was really intrusive and my users would get angry, but I've never gotten any complaints.

    I like the PPV concept. In one case my situation is unique. I have a client that considers a website hit as a conversion. I know, I know, this is strange but they just want relevant traffic, no conversions or sales.

    So, based on that, what network do you think will provide the most PPV traffic and the most relevant PPV traffic at the best cost?

      Well if you ask me there is a lot of "view fraud" out there.

      Your client should care whether the traffic is prequalified or not so he or she would know how many people actually would bother to read what's on their website. Whichever network your use you will have to do significant testing within the client's niche to see what works with their creative/content/etc. What is their endgame other than just "hits" to the website? Don't they want subscribers or readers or for people to bookmark or comment on posts or something?

      Traffic Vance will probably give you the most traffic but I think I would try to convince your clients that it's not really hits that matters. Once you can show them the value of targeted traffic they will think you are a genius and probably be willing to pay you a lot more

    Think about the demographics of PPV networks. As I understand them, they get most of their users by giving them free games, etc. and to get access to these free games, the users agree to see ads every now and then. Voila, that's what adware is at it's core. So, think about what people who want to play games, i.e. entertainment on the computer, would be interested in viewing. I would suggest things like satellite tv offers, DVD offers, dating, gambling, ringtones, etc. are the kinds of things you should look at. I suppose email submits can work, but I would say go after higher payouts. I did very well on one campaign with Dish Network, basically just getting $10 for giving them users who fill out the form, i.e. a solid lead. Basically, I was spending $10 and getting $20 back, so it was a good campaign.

    Now, having said this, I have heard that other people have done well in other demographics with PPV, and some people say any niche can be profitable with PPV, so try it out to your heart's desire. Different people get different results with each niche. I would suggest asking the PPV manager assigned to you what is a good niche to use for their PPV network.

    My client is a manufacturer of construction tools like saws. They are not concerned with conversions, they don't even have anything to convert on their website. Resellers do all of their selling and they just want to build their brand and increase product exposure.

    I have talked with them for weeks of the importance of converting, even if they send leads to their resellers, but they haven't budged yet. I did some SEO for them that worked like gangbusters (1 - 3 for multiple keywords on Google, Yahoo and Bing) so they're paying more attention to me now. I'm trying to get them to change their website focus, but it is a long drawn-out effort.

    Thanks for your advice...

    One question.

    If we build our every own LP for our PPV campaign

    PPV >> Landing Page >> Linked cloaked via Prosper202 >> CPA Offer

    Technically speaking, is the above could be considered as "non PPV traffic" from CPA network perspective?

      Don't take my word as official, but I believe that you're correct. I think I read somewhere that visitors coming from an LP don't technically count as CPV traffic. You'll definitely want to check with your AM before sending traffic like this to a non-CPV offer.

      No, don't ever assume anything when it comes to CPA networks. It doesn't matter if you are cloaking or not, if you are sending PPV traffic I would make sure the offer you are running accepts it. I wouldn't risk not getting your hard earned commissions.

        Yeah, that's what I was thinking as well. Ideally I would like to experiment a single LP where I drive traffic from various sources such as bum marketing, email, ppc, media buys and ppv. Of course, all clicks will be tracked.

        I would like to experiment this once I got the approval from the AMs.

    Very interesting topic in here! At times I was left speechless by what's being discussed in here.
    Anyways, I'm slowly starting to study PPV as well. A few days ago, I received an email from Gauher Chaudry as I'm on his list, that PPV2 is available again. A couple of quick questions on this:
    Has anyone bought and is using that course? Is it really worth the 900 bucks?
    Would you suggest someone just starting in CPA to get that course or is that something for only experienced CPA folks?

    I'd appreciate your feedback on this.

      Has anyone bought and is using that course? Is it really worth the 900 bucks?
      Would you suggest someone just starting in CPA to get that course or is that something for only experienced CPA folks?

      I'd appreciate your feedback on this.

      Cheers.
      i think there are really useful informations on ppv2 but i think it's much better if you invest the 900 $ in your ppv budget and find out the things for yourself..this way you will learn much more.

      I think you would learn more by using the $900 for testing yes. It's a good course but if you are just starting out I would read free blogs and forums to get a better basic understanding of everything. Then if you do buy a course like that you will get a lot more out of it.

    Yes, his products are always expensive. The simple fact that he prices it so high builds up the value in people's minds. But, if you are going to be spending that much money for his product, and it's about paid traffic, you better have double or triple that to apply what you learn inside. I haven't bought it, I am just saying. I'm sure it can help, but if you pay that much for something, you better be able to use it. Also, if you pay that much for something, it'd be a waste if you do not put in the time and effort to be successful with what you learn.

    Why do I say these things? Because I have made those mistakes myself, in the past.

      That's funny, I buy the ones I can afford. I bought Jonathan Mizel's course on media buying, it was a good intro but honestly I personally need a lot more specific and detailed information to get a good grasp on this type of traffic buying. I can't afford Gauher's course not anytime soon, how come you haven't even looked at it yet? I'd be all over it.

    After seeing all these discussions finally I jumped and started a campaign on Adon Network. My first PPV campaign. I selected the keywords route since I don't know how to do the URL thing. Hope one day I will learn that and go that route too. Meanwhile, let me see what happens to my first campaign. Bless me. HAHAHA.

      Yeah and I hope the Clicksor Guys jump in on this discussion before the topic changes. Most of what I'm hearing from other people that have tried advertising with Clicksor is that they have had generally bad results. I've spent around $200 so far with two conversions and I think that was just dumb luck.

      It really would be great if they could discuss in more detail either on this forum or on their own about how to properly target their audiences, it is also frustrating to not be able to see the websites your ads are appearing on. I know it's beating the dead horse here cause they've already said why they don't show them, but ... why is it so hard to make something work on this network?

    I recently tried PPV advertising. In fact, my first campaign is still running. I bought 5000 views from a company called REALPPVTRAFFIC.COM at 1.5 cents/ view. I have had a grand total of 4 opt-ins to my Mailing List and zero signups after almost 3000 clicks! So you see, I AM getting clicks just that nobody is optin in and I have a pretty good squeeze page.
    PPV advertising sounds good on paper but my experience with it is that it does not convert. The only ones I know who are saying PPV advertising is the greatest mode of advertising since the early days of PPC are those who are selling ebooks on how to do PPV advertising and those who are actually selling PPV advertising!
    Beware of PPV advertising.

      That's the problem right there. It's kind of like PPC where there are a few networks like Google, Bing, etc that convert good and some 3rd tier ones that convert really bad. With PPV you should stick to the larger, well known networks like Traffic Vance, Media Traffic, Adon Network, etc.

      I would really encourage you to try it again with a different network

        Is it safe to say that Zango is a waste of $ , i mean i see people bidding on the same url's / keywords that I am so there has to be somone making money form it. I am very interested in your one on one you can PM me here please. Im getting discouraged as i have over 500 clicks and 0 conversions on a simpe 5 page lead gen. How much traffic or money do you need to psend before you can see some results? Or is Zango ( leadimpact) crap.

    Yep, that company doesn't sound very legit. The situation with PPV is a bit ironic in that the network that generally has the best conversions, Trafficvance, also has the highest barrier to entry with its referral-only signups and $1000 minimum deposit. Which means newbies starting out with PPV are forced to start with other networks that convert less well, they become frustrated and give up as a consequence.

        Hmm...I haven't heard anything about that. I don't know for sure but I would doubt that is true. When I first started there, the initial deposit was $500...I doubt they would go back down but I could be wrong. I'll ask them

          Dude, that would be awesome if you could ask them if there any changes coming up about the minimums. I totally understand what they're doing but I think it really pushes out potential big customers that could drop good money if they provide the type of traffic you guys have been talking about.

          Also heard this comment from one of Jonathan Mizel's interviews with some PPV guru that TV is it and nothing else comes close. It's gotta be for a reason.

            A couple months ago, Jonathon (TV's VP) stated that they were going to raise the the minimum deposit from $1000 to around $2500 sometime around the new year. I am not sure if it has changed yet.

      Media Traffic has pretty good conversions, just not as much traffic as Traffic Vance. I recommend people start there because you can see a nice return on your campaigns and the initial deposit isn't as steep.

    About 2-3 weeks ago, I had one of those pop ups appear on my screen about getting nice screensavers. I went ahead and installed it as I was looking for some nice screensaves. Now, everytime I go to a site that is even remotely related to money, I get one of those pop ups/offers show up on my screen. For example, when I go to read the Twitter thread in this very WF CPA forum, I get a pop of an offer for some Twitter sysem; when I go to Google, I get one of those google money systems. It's becoming annoying yet funny. So this i what CPV is hey? I'll be honest, I have closed right away 100% of those pop ups, so it's interesting to see that these work and that people are making money on them.

    I have a Question for the PPV experts in this thread.

    To get really targeted URL's they are often over 40 characters in length.

    Can you use a segment of the URL as a keyword leaving out the actual top domain?

    This would also contain some weird characters such as /, ?, % etc...

    I am using Media Traffic.

    If the above isn't possible are there ways to target specific pages with long URL,s..?


    EXAMPLE youtube.com/results?search_query=skin+care+products&search_typ e=&aq=3s&oq=skincare

    Would it be possible to target this specific page & if so How?

    Appreciate any help

            TrafficVance in by far my favorite network with MediaTraffic in for a close second. It's true that a number of small networks are popping up all over the place and this is great! Competition between networks is always a good thing for the advertisers. As far as PPV/CPV becoming saturated, it's a much smaller pool than you'd really think in the grand scheme of things.

      I have used LeadImpact and they are pretty good imho.
      They have both USA traffic and international too.
      Their traffic can convert pretty good if you know how to target right.
      Give them a spin , I think you will like their traffic.

    I just created campaign on clicksor. Campaign is on Education program and its Email submit. Added nearly about 65 keywords. Max cpc set 0.0100. Category :- Society> Education. Its contextual full page pop under. Daily budget set :- 5$

    Now lets see how it goes in conversion.

    Clicksor's traffic is sometimes hard to convert, but you should try it yourself to see the results.
    Keep us updated how it goes

    Hi Mormuno01 and Chandh,

    Thanks for sharing. I've heard so much lately about demographics and not really understand that until now. Will keep that in mind when running my campaigns.

    And Finch, I enjoyed your shocking marketing tactics too. Really thinking out of the box.

    one thing that I do is that always TRACK using prosper 202 without that its a waste of money

    I spoke to my rep at DirectCPV and she said that they are having major bidding calculation troubles... so stay away from it for now.

    You cannot always blame the networks for poor success. I have seen many ppv campaigns that people have setup and the almost all are terrible. The landing page is too big and does not have a clear call to action 99% of the time. The keywords are generally keywords not a highly targeted list of handpicked related urls (at least 500) and rarely have I seen an extremely compelling offer. You really have to do your homework before spending money on a campaign. Your offer and keywords have to rock.

    1 more thing. 3000 views is not much for ppv. It is a pop up or pop under. People see it for a second or so before clicking off. It can take time for you campaign to run. Let it run the full course before you judge completely.

    What about CPV for building a list, anyone done this and had success? I.e. like getting leads at a low price?

    PPV has the potential to make you rich however done incorrectly you can lose everything quickly. Make sure you do your research. Thats all I can say here.

    I once bought a clickbank guide which taught to use PPV networks for affiliate marketing. I spent $200 on PPV marketing and ended up making around $160 in total affiliate sales. After that loss, I did not go again for PPV.

    PPV is great when you learn how to do it right - pretty much unlimited opportunity.

    But like anything you just have to test, test, test.

    I did notice that 85% of my profitable sites were then targeted by their partners where I was getting half a penny per view, the bids were now 5 cents for top position for most of my profitable sites that I targeted.I do believe they had problems.... maybe not, who knows... we'll never know.

    Awesome. That is what I would use to describe this thread. Great suggestions all over the thread. Many experts have chipped in with their observations and results. It is amazing. PPV or CPV as some of you call is a great option. But before entering here we need some testing and fine tuning. May some course on PPV would help. I am looking for the resources.
    I would suggest trying PPV first with some cheap networks that allow 5 dollars or 10 dollar campaign to know more about targeting, demographics and other things. Once you know how to do it, you can begin moving to TV or MT.
    I read here that TV does not allow people from ASIA. I would like to know why??

      Dude,

      Five dollar or ten dollar campaign- are you kidding. How about $500 per day to get it done right. You need to test many kw fast to see what's converting. The lower you spend, the slower you see what's converting. Hate to burst your bubble.

    There is massive bucks to be made with CPV. Dont dive into this without knowing exac tly what your doing though, its easy to burn through your budget if you do it incorrectly. Plenty of training sites out there though!

    I tried clicksore and ran many campaigns popunders, contextual, banners,ppv but not even a single one worked for me. They gave 100% bounce rate traffic to my offers so I decided to quit them.

    Well, I know it was my 1st experience with Clicksor, but I've spent around $20 with only 1 conversion ($1.20 e-mail submit).

    What I don't get is that in order to start a profitable PPV campaign you have to know the game. But I how do you start without knowing the game?.. Or is it just the matter of a deeper pocket?
