Proof and Truth (whether you want to hear it or not)
One of the things I look for is effectiveness of the ads I post. I do this by looking at site stats, but more importantly through ad tracking and analysis.
One good sign I see right here with no analysis whatsoever is that YOUR ADS ARE BEING SEEN!
How do I know this? Your points are steadily being depleted for your ads, which means that that your Safelist ads, particularly banners and text ads, are being VIEWED, not only with our tiny membership here at WebcastSource.net but throughout the WorldProfit Network. Your ads are being viewed in MANY venues – some portion of the member sites at the massive WorldProfit network, which today shows a member count of over 18,000 ACTIVE members
For our banner ads
we have gotten 140,720 views for 220 active banners, and 31,552 clicks which is a 22.4% CTR. Considering that the industry average for TAE/TE traffic is approximately 2%, what does that say for OUR Ad effectiveness?
We have received 163,244 views and 23,802 clicks, CTR 14.5% for 88 active text ads
Unfortunately I do not have system-wide statistics for Solo ads, but my personal stats (what has not rolled off of the stats screen): 46 Solo ads got 350,967 views and 564 clicks. The CTR for my personal solo ads is .16% – not impressive.
That tells me there are many ONSITE viewers of text and banner ads and a relatively inactive audience of email subscribers.
So… THIS IS THE SITE I would want to use for Text Ads, banners, and login ads.
38 registered members (excluding admin). 3 Lifetime, 1 Pro, 34 Free
Now for OUR site activity, login ads are a good indicator of site activity. 2104 logins since January 2014. Out of 84 login ads, there were only 40 views. Very sad. This tells me that our own members are:
- NOT LOGGING ON
- NOT VIEWING ADS
- NOT BRINGING IN REFERRALS
- NOT VIEWING, DOWNLOADING OR SELLING FROM THE MEGA PLR STORE
- NOT ACCESSING NEWSLETTERS
- NOT VIEWING THE BLOG
- NOT ACCESSING THE OTHER RESOURCES PAGE
- NOT DOWNLOADING 38 MODULE TRAINING (FREE TO LIFETIME MEMBERS)
These things are under YOUR control.
I advertise on safelists, traffic exchanges, paid solo ads, participate in traffic Co-ops,
I am doing my part (94% of referrals are MINE). Are you?
