Hi,

I am seeing very poor results with Leadimpact, does Leadimpact lost its quality traffic?

I tried gaming offers and it barely brings conversions to me, and i tried weight loss & muscle offes and its same.

Any ideas?

I have used the best lander and used url's as keywords..So no problems with my keywords and landing page.

    I've heard a couple others mention a drop in quality with LI as of late. Have you thought about trying TrafficVance or 50onRed?

    Hey, I spent around $900 and i left with $100, i barely got few conversions. Most of my money was spent on the above three niches. That's why i wanted to check with you guys whether gaming offers are still working in Leadimpact?

    Could be the traffic quality, but don't assume it's not your landing page, offer, or url targets.

    You have to test multiple landing pages and multiple offers to find out what the story really is. Then observe what Keyword + Lander + Offer is giving you the best ROI.

    When I test, I test up to 4 different landers at one time; in addition to more than one of the same offer (you have to use different networks and the payouts are different).

    Lastly, be strategic with your marketing budget. Budget only X% on a specific campaign. If it fails, move on to the next.

    I like to test my campaigns with only $20 to $50. If they bomb, I'm only out a small amount of cash.

      You are so right. Rule #1 for starters, go small test first. If it converts throw more money at it. Its crazy to dump 900 bucks into campaigns you dont even know are going to perform. Also the are a few affiliate marketing classes that are using video gaming to teach noobs how to do affiliate marketing. Gaming is way over saturated right now and the guys that are crushing it know what they are doing.

    I was running few very profitable campaign in all three networks (LI, TV. 50onred) for last few months.
    Suddenly from one fine day my conversions on all these campaigns dropped to zero but i was getting same level of profits in other two networks. So i knew campaign didn't die off and there is some other serious issue going on because the ctr which i was getting in other two networks were almost 40% but in leadimpact i was barely getting 2%.

    I had no clue what the hell is happening over here in leadimpact. I knew problem is not in my campaign and I thought it was waste asking them about this issue to leadimpact team because I knew what reply they would give for this so I went ahead and installed one of their adwares in my machine.

    I opened my landing page in one of the pop ups which i got from that adware. There was shock waiting for me inside that browser. My landing page was literally blank. (only text was shown)
    That's when i realized there are big flaws in their custom browser which they use to show our ads.

    1) Their custom browser doesn't recognize most of the css tags
    2) This landing page which i tested was mostly designed using jquery and this custom browser didn't recognize any of these jquery tags.
    3) Then in that same browser i tried to load a simple html page which has just image and audio. Even that test turned out to be a shock for me. First of all audio didn't work and then most importantly target="_blank" code didn't work.

    Those who don't know, target="_blank" is a ahref code which is used to open the links in the system's default browser.

    Most of the advertisers landing page are designed with high end coding. Imagine what would happen if those offer pages are loaded inside this crappy browser.

    I took forward this issue to leadimpact team. But still now they haven't got back to me. Whenever i call them asking some update regarding this issue, they just inform me that our technical team is working on this issue and we will inform you when this is solved.

    Hearing this kind of response was no surprise to me because one thing which leadipact lacked from the beginning was good support and management system.

      Hello,

      Last month I started using LeadImpact and so far I spent $750 and earned just $105.

      I am new to PPV. The result could be because of the bad quality or my inexperience. Do you suggest me to continue with LeadImpact or switch to other big networks like TV,50onRed ?

      Had no problem with LI so far using them for about 4 years .. Using others as well however Lead impact is my personal favorite simply because its making me more money , And about their support we regularly communicate with their team and get prompt reply from account manager and Biz dev manager ..

      About Naveen`s issue i assume you tried their pops from VPS , and was VPS properly configured ? also was the adwrae you used to spy in beta or it was already launched ?

      I have been working with Leadimpact since start and had no problems at all and their support is also great However its my own personal experience cant say about others..

        I tried this in my own system, not in vps and also i tested this with two adwares which i got from li directly. Initially I thought something could be wrong in my system, so I asked two other friends to try it out and also got same problem. When I reported this problem to them, they told me that they have forwarded this issue to tech team and they are working on this problem and we will notify you once it has been completed. So this obliviously means something was wrong at that time.

        Regarding support of LI, imo it has never been equal to quality of other networks.

        Last night one of my student said he tried some other adware of li and everything was normal. From what I know, LI has most number of partners than any other network. Which means they have huge number of adwares.

        But again this is just my own experience and doesn't mean that you should completely stop using LI. Infact I am still using LI. The reason behind why I wrote that post is just to alert some people who are using flashes or other stuffs to to split test with other type of landers also. I guess this issue wouldn't have been much exaggerated if I had explained this fully in my initial post itself.

        Its always wrong to come to an conclusion without testing yourself. If you read my post again, you will not find any statement which mentions that LI traffic quality is bad. Its always been good and profitable that's the reason why I'm still using them.

    Updates on current status will be appreciated from all who are chasing Leadimpact Customer Care.

    LeadImpact has apparently introduced some adware that strips off cookies when a new window is opened somewhere in the path to conversion, whether the new window is opened via the popup lander, or the advertiser lander. This breaks cookie based affiliate tracking....now you understand the conversion issue.

    If one is just going for optins, this apparent cookie issue may not affect things so much, if one is wanting to get the conversions from email followups.

    Last month they have taken down there customer phone contact from there contact page also.

    I agree with this. LI is getting worse. They don't allow us to bid on the keyword variations which have been generated most profit for me.

  • I depends on many factors I got some video gaming offers to convert with a positive ROI on lead impact. Just test and track. Good luck.

    Leadimpact changed to the worse.
    • Less ways of keyword targeting, the asterisk wildcard is gone.
    • Minimum daily spending per campaign increased from $5 to $20 or as an alternative to one dollar per hour.
    • No more service phone number for quick problem resolution.
    My personal experience with their support changed from positive-neutral in the past to bad now. At present it takes 4 days till they answer me and their answer is not about my problem. Or they ask for information I gave them in my initial question already.

    If you are a newbie you should be cautious with Leadimpact at the moment. If you made money with them in the past, watch your campaigns closely. For example, the click through rate in one of my campaigns went from 13% to 2.5% from one week to the next.

    I think there are only two ways to handle the present Leadimpact problem.
    • Use other networks like 50onRed or Trafficvance whereever possible. Compare your results with Leadimpact.
    • If you experience a drop in traffic quality or if you disagree with their new pricing policy make it clear to Leadimpact that you consider leaving them if their traffic quality and their pricing policy don't improve.
    In my opinion Leadimpact behaves somewhat like Google. But Google has sort of a monopoly. Leadimpact has not. - I hope they change their policy back to something more friendly to PPV marketers, because then they are a choice you shouldn't miss.

      Good points. IMHO if you're serious in this business, you HAVE to have a machine infected with all the adwares to see how yours or advertiser sites look like. There are many new landers which show black/blank/really messed inside. Personally I didn't have problems with audio but there are many other aspects that don't work.

      Also it's worth mentioning that about 50% of LI traffic comes from their own adware with custom browser, and another 50% from "partners", which shows ads in regular browsers

      Exactly. This problem with cookies is really bad, it kills conversions, and even if you able to get conversion, then the quality of the lead is really bad, cause user get's logged out constantly if advertiser is opening links in new page.

      They told me this is the problem only with their own adware, so about 50% of traffic. Upon special request, they can disable different traffic channels so you would only get traffic which can inherit cookies

    All That talk is getting me worried, I am a newbie and have been starting out with LI so far I spent 270$ for 90$ conversions, I always thought it was my own lack of experience, I choose to work with them in the first place so I can eliminate the unknown factor of the quality of the traffic, but now I just want to ask for a refund and go for 50onred, what do you guys think ?? I just sent them a "ticket" regarding the increase of daily budget and inquiring about there refund policy, I have been with them for exactly 42 days, I hope I can get a refund before they ask for a 20% administration fee, I haven't had the best experience with their support either

      If the quality of your conversions deteriorated over the last two weeks the problems described in this thread are a likely reason. However, PPV often works only after optimizing a campaign.

      If there are some keywords that convert well while others make you lose money you should discard the money losers first. Then you should analyze if your conversions of the winner keywords deteriorated in the last weeks.

      It really depends on whether you are still making money with an optimized campaign.

    I am using LeadImpact for more than 18 months now and I have to admit that there is something wrong with them from last April. The quality of traffic became very low and the volume of the traffic became very very low as well. I remember that I was bidding to get a traffic for a certain url and the 1st bidder was paying $0.987 for only 1 impression! but now, for a high profitable traffic that comes from some urls you can pay $0.03 only. And that reflects how things are going wrong with LeadImpact. Thanks.
