I have been seeing a lot of information on adware traffic lately from friends, super affiliates, gurus, and more recently, a few booths at Affiliate Summit.
I was always under the understanding that this was just a phase or something over hyped. I think I am finally realizing however, this this may be completely opposite. I think this may be one of those opportunities for extremely easy-to-get cheap targeted traffic…much like PPC was back in the day.
I have been going over as much material as I can find on this over the weekend and will be pumping out some tests here this week. It looks as if this will run very similar to PPC so will be very easy to switch over any profitable campaigns. One nice thing is that there are no actual ads to be written, so it should take much less time to actually put up campaigns. I can basically just take most of my converting keywords from my PPC campaigns, expand them a bit, and be ready to start firing traffic away.
Some of the networks I have heard decent reviews from are Zango.com, MediaTraffic.com, and Adonnetwork.com so I am probably going to start off testing these networks. I have heard that zango is a bit pricier, but as I have found many times before, that isn’t always a bad thing. I stopped by Media Traffic’s booth out at Affiliate Summit West and had a decent talk with one of the representatives. They certainly helped answer a few of the questions I had so I figure I might as well make sure to give them a shot. Adonnetwork is supposed to have some of the cheapest bids around so I also thought I should make sure to put these guys to the test. Hopefully I will be able to report back amazing results to all of you.
I think this source of traffic is very powerful right now and will be one of the things that turns my days into 5 figure ones Stay tuned this next week to read about all of my tests results. This should be some good stuff. If any of you have any experience with this type of traffic, please comment and let me know your experience with it so far.
