Well, either way I'll just post the questions here. It might be useful for some other guys.
1 - So, can we upload creatives as Animated gifs, in POF? Or just static images?
2 - When I create a campaign, I can see that I have two creatives options: Small Ad (110x80) and Small Banner (310x110).
But if I read the dimension of the supported creatives, in the Help page, I can see that there are no Small Banner with 310x110.
Thats exactly what THIS thread is for , ask away - Ben will be here soon to answer all questions.
Hey Paul, thanks for breaking the ice with the first questions!
1. Yes we allow animated gifs but only in the IAB banners. The IAB banners come with a $1000 deposit and have a max file size of 50kb. The rule w/ animated gifs is 2 second delay between frames, this is to prevent those super flashy annoying ads from being uploladed.
2. See #1
Thanks for your reply. I guess I've not made myself clear with the second question.
When creating a campaign, I can choose between two options: Small Ad or Small Banner.
I choose Small Banner (310x110).
But if I go to your Help page, I cannot see that banner format:
Taken from their help pdf:
Sure. Silly of me Thanks exeight
Great to see you here as well Ben, you're always a great sight to see on a forum.
So glad to see you here Ben. My question: what verticals/offers (except dating) are converting well on POF? Thank you
Right, this is because you haven't hit $1000 in deposit. Once you have, you will be given the option to create a campaign for the IAB standard ads instead of automatically going to the 110x80 and 310x110 campaign
Health and Beauty, "how to pick up girls" products (see clickbank), EDU, Zodiac, shopping offers... your first campaign on POF should be dating though.. its easiest to monetize.
So for Dating better to use a LP or Direct-Linking ?
If you are new with POF I suggest you just do Direct-Linking and if you find the offer can give you some potential gold mine then try to make landing page to maximize your profit
Exactly. You never know if your lander is good/bad unless you compare results to your direct link
Hello Ben, i want to start using POF Ads. I wrote an email to support two days ago about this but il repost the problem here. I am from Lithuania, there's no such country to choose in cpanel, why? I think you can help me to get in. Thanks in advance
I have a similar problem. But I also have a card with a US billing address but that card is being declined. Any way to use paypal?
Check the comments section of this blog post. Maybe Ben can confirm if it is still okay to sign up under an alternate country today.
Hey guys, yes you can sign up under an alternate country and it will create the account OK. You will mostly likely run into issues with the credit card and if you do, please email me at ben@Pof.com and I'll give you our Paypal option (minimum $50 deposit).
Hey guys, here are some super helpful readings that I've hand picked to put together as essential POF readings. Hope it helps you in your journey!
