Default Not Getting Enough Traffic?

Jack up your daily budget.

BUT you WILL get a lot more and you might even get what you've asked for.

I've seen this work in PPC, CPV and CPM, virtually anywhere you're setting a daily budget.

Try it.

I've seen it work too

I always tested a little first and when I was ready I turned it loose.... and good things happened.

For sure - tons of traffic sources limit it so you spend your budget by the end of the day.

Gives you much slower traffic - jack that bad boy up and watch it close.

Btw, when you say jack it up, how much do you mean? Let's say my current limit is set at $50, would $200+ give me noticeable results, or should do something like $1000? Or more?

Thanks

I found that $200-$500 is usually good per campaign.

Start off with $200 and work it up.

Do you find that you can go from not reaching the daily budget when it's low, to meeting it when it's high? Say you set $50 and you're only spending $10, does setting to $200 sometimes let you reach $50 or more? Does the traffic quality remain the same?

For me, there usually seems to be a budget buffer that doesn't get used - unless it's a really high traffic target which could then use up all your budget and then some.

Because of so many different factors and the randomness of conversions, it's difficult to tell if traffic quality stays the same. My best answer would be "it seems like it does," but you do have to watch for faster ad burnout. Some ads burn out quickly, others can last for months or even half a year -- just have to watch over them with your tracking.

So you suggest instead of a default $10 a day budget, you must set it at a minimum of $200 a day? For the scenario when you don't get ANY traffic or just some traffic?

What should you do when you don't get any traffic ($10 a day), are your targets then not ok? or is the budget too low?

I never start a campaign with a $200/day budget. In the beginning, I usually set it at $30-$40 to see what happens and then go from there.

$10 a day budget is good if you want to be careful with your ad spend.

What should you do when you don't get any traffic ($10 a day), are your targets then not ok? or is the budget too low?
Could be low traffic targets or it could be the budget is set too low (although the CPV network will probably find a way to use up your budget if there is traffic to the targets). Try changing the budget to between $20-$40 and see what happens.
