What is your favorite paid traffic source?

19 replies
I'm testing different ways to get traffic for information websites. What is your experience with:

Trafficvance :: Advanced Display & Text Link Traffic | Home >entry fee 1000 $
Media Traffic - CPV PPV Contextual Advertising >entry fee 200 $
LeadImpact > 200 $
Pay Per Click Advertising | Pop Under Ads | AdOn Network > 200 $

The entry fees as you can see are very expensive, specially trafficvance. Is it worth it? :confused:

    While I can't speak about any of those networks listed above, I'll throw out that I don't think you're asking the whole question.

    One form of paid traffic might work wonders for one method of monetization, but might fall flat on its face on others. For example, if I were sending penny click mobile users to a CPA offer asking them to apply for a loan, I would get a 0% conversion rate.

    Based on that logic, the network I'm using is terrible, right? Not at all. It is rather my implementation, or rather my use of the traffic I'm paying for.

    I think a better question to ask is: "What is your favorite paid traffic source for ________?"

    That's where you fill in the blank... List building, CPA offers, affiliate marketing... you get my point.

    In your post you talk about generating traffic for an information website. So I take it we're talking like a niche site? Are you selling a product there? Are you trying to build a list? Are you offering a membership?

    Sorry if this isn't the answer you're looking for, I just think it may be tough to quantify the value of a network based on broad uses rather than specific. Real quick, awhile ago I got into mobile CPA marketing. I started with a network called BuzzCity. Saw poor results after tons of optimization. Switched to InMobi and saw better results despite having to pay more per click. But I digress.

    Waiting for others to share actual experiences...

    Cheers.

    Any of them can work, you just have to adjust your campaign to fit their personalities.

    Adwords scares a lot of people away since there's a lot of stuff that isn't allowed. This means that if you play by their rules, you can do pretty well because lots of people stay away now.

    Or you can go to Bing and be a bit more liberal, but overall you have less traffic.

    All of those sites listed i've never tried (but probably one day will). I like Bing Ads, Adwords, advertising on Clickbank for affiliates, and blog advertising.

    People will have different results brother. Want to know the secret to seeing if its worth it?????








    TEST SMALL UNTIL PROFITABLE!!!! That's the only way for you to know. Take one traffic source and focus on that. Test small and tweak! Oh if your promoting CPV the best thing to do is gather emails and sell them later after building value!

    Reach out to someone good at CPV as well. They will put you on game.

    I think that you would be better of spending that kind of money on SEO.

    Why dont you drive free, unlimited traffic from YouTube and Google - you can promote CPA offers, affiliate offers, Amazon products, etc. What I do currently is contact local businesses and offer to rank their business on 1st page of Google and YT, I use 19 steps SEO system that works very well, for example go to YouTube right now and search Best Steakhouse In Phoenix and you will see that I have rank Roka Akor steakhouse on 1st-4th spot on YT and as of now they are on 1st page of Google, you do the job - contact local business and close them for monthly fee, than cleanse and repeat, you can rank for any keyword in any niche, PM if you are interested.

    I can't answer this question directly. There are many paid traffic sources that are good enough. I think I would be able to answer this easily if there is a specific niche indicated. Always remember that there is no single paid traffic source for all of the niche out there.

    In short, the paid traffic source that you should be using should depend upon what your niche is.

      Without being too specific what sort of offers did you find more successful at FB?

      Were the ads to your Fan Page or LP/Website?

    i can't really comment on all those sites for paid traffic but i will say that in terms of ease and speed solo ads are very hard to beat

    u do have to have a funnel to send people through and you need to be careful who you buy off but they can be very profitable
