    UPDATE!

    Currently added to more traffic sources into my campaigns won't reveal it here so don't ask me.
    Current Active campaigns is colored others I stopped as i didn't get a hold after spending advertisement.

    [​IMG]
    a total of 9 holds - 2 Approved 3 Holds 4 Trashed.

    #1 The first campaign is close to getting -100% ROI so I will stop when I reach that point
    #2 Stopped
    #3 Has potential needs more data to filter out good prelander-lp combo
    overall I'm getting 1 hold per 400 clicks so gonna increase bid till I get 400 clicks per day see i can make 1 hold per day
    #4 Doing the BEST prelander-lp combo
    I need holds to get approved before I can filter out good banners and bad.
    #5 Stoppped
    #6 traffic is very slow on this country might take months to get data. just gonna let it sit for a while as it doesn't eat up a lot of the advertisement cost.
    #7 Has potential need more data to make it green!
    #8 Traffic Scaling of #4 but this network traffic is low.

    So far in my COD Adult Banners Journey is going very well.
    I ran a lot of campaigns testing different country Currently
    Made 171 sales // 136 Hold // Spent 550
    Out of all the campaign right now Running 3 campaigns that have potential

    Campaign #1 In the green right now
    43.5 earnings with 34.14 ad spend, testing banners and time
    Campaign #2 In the red because a lot in the hold still only 1 approved
    testing banners
    Campaign #3 Just started to test new hot offer on adcombo.

    What I did.
    -was running 2 traffic source feel that one of the traffic sources is just wasting my test budget couldn't find something good so I am focusing on 1 traffic source that is doing good.
    -Testing Banners .5 x of offer payout expecting at least 1 sales or block.
    -Test campaigns with little or just 1 landing/pre-lander on adcombo to minimalize the testing budget

    Question
    -What I could optimize with my traffic source is TIME. Gotta find a way to correctly optimize this without losing profit.

    Time selection is going to be subjective on your part -- when do the people buy?

    I do know that when selling adult products --
    25 -40 late afternoon (15:00-17:00) goof off time at work ;)-- then mid evening (their time)
    50-70?:D yo males -> 10 am to 6 pm (maybe)
    You need a lot of data of that product or similar products -- that is very difficult when you are not the end seller.

    UPDATE
    okay, big update guys last few days was doing awesome.
    I got the hang of COD campaigns, got a better exit plan, a better idea on how to run cod offers ALL THANKS TO @kashiefh HE'S THE BEST! XOXO

    Anyways u guys want real data so here's the last 3 days data
    just look at the conversion as hold+conversion
    the profit and loss data is little off because of confusing postback on adcombo with holds/reject/leads.
    But again @kashiefh help me on this he saved my data and now it's all normal now.
    [​IMG]
    actually had 8 holds some holds was lost
    2 approved 5 holds 1 trashed

    running 4 campaigns now trashed the bad ones.

    OKIE UPDATE!
    Last month I was more in search for a good traffic source to really dig in, because previous 2 was just not doing well.
    Moved onto a nice traffic source to do various of test and focus on some GEO before scaling to big waters.

    FEB 1~12 SPENT 285.222 MADE 160.00 Still in the red
    Result Good Amount of holds but low sale rate
    Testing 3 GEOS Testing 2 Networks
    Found a winning landing page (self-hosted)
    Now I am doing good on getting holds onto the network for sure just need it to get converted

    My BIG Problem
    Low Approval Rate

    This is why I gave up COD offers. At the end of the month I had 3 times more holds than sales and none of them were converting to sales. Instead of being $700-$800 on plus every month I was few hundred of dolars in red. This is what happened every month, month after month for the period I was running them.

    I don't like this business model. You get holds, you think is doing ok and you'll be profitable so you push more traffic, but at the end of the month you have negative ROI because all your holds are rejected. I even ended months with 30-40 holds of $15-$20 and one by one all were rejected in the following month.

    I'm telling you this to give you food for thought, if you see it doesn't work for few months, maybe you decide is not your thing and choose to run other offers.

    Businesses don't pay good money for empty promises. What good is traffic that does not convert into paying customers? Traffic arbitrage maybe ... Selling email lists has become problematic too lately.

    The problem is either 1.)with the offer or 2.) with the current market conditions (too much free content [in adult]) perhaps ...

    On the other hand --- massive shaving:doubtful

    1) Trying with various of GEOs so different offer on the same network and also trying another network it's been a day got 2 holds still keeping eye on it.

    2) if that's so, no one is doing COD these days?

    3) Massive Shaving.... reason why im trying another network it's been only a day so can't really so for sure.

    You are offering non-digital goods (penis pills?) as I recall.
    Why on hold;
    1. a payment processing problem; or,
    2. a goods shipped issue; or,
    3. a goods accepted issue?
    Without knowing that? IDK???

    yeah that's why I'm not pushing more volume of traffic just enough that it doesn't strain my wallet.

    1~2 if this was the problem i know few people doing the same offers that is converting but not me so i don't think so.

    3. i'm not sure, i asked my am about it but haven't heard back what issue it is.

    Holds happean when people enter their phone number on the salespage but don’t answer the phone when the callcenter calls them. They’ll keep calling them for a certain period (1-2 days I believe? Not sure I forgot), and eventually the lead will be trashed. A rejection is when someone picks up the phone but doesn’t want the goods anymore so he doesn’t give his address.
