I’m Dominik, I currently study computer science in Vienna, Austria and have picked up IM in the past week, spending about 10 to 14 hours a day reading & reading & reading WickedFire and other iM forums. I’ve joined STM to skip past the trial & error stage and get to the profitable stuff ASAP and hope you guys can make my investment worthwhile Heck, I can’t wait to start running profitable campaigns and will be focusing 100% of my time and effort to make this a reality.
Looking forward to learning from & working with all y’all!
PS.: As a little bonus here’s one of the banners of my first ever POF campaign. I was mighty proud when I finished my set of 10 banner variations in Photoshop but 5000 impressions and 0 clicks quickly followed.
Things I learned:
- People are used to these banners, this is just one more boring ad amongst the bajillions already out there, grab their attention somehow
- Use a CTA that isn’t "JUST GIVE ME YOUR MONEY"
- Match user’s intent, people on PoF are there for dating, while I still think the health vertical should work, this is clearly the wrong offer and the benefits of a good offer should clearly be dating-related (get ripped to make her swoon!)
- PoF did a really good friggin job preventing people from signing up through proxies (and then intentionally throwing random error messages) making it seemingly impossible for foreign advertisers to check out what is working on the platform.
