Default Your Personal Success Rate?

What is your personal success rate, i.e. how many camps do you need to launch to find one winner?

I'm about 1 for 5 now. But I don't just launch and forget about it, I launch, then optimize it.

mpinelli, I have seen you said that you spent $300 to make $1200 or so, or not you ? if you why so much in comparison (almost $600) didn't converted in directCPV ?

no that was me. the last $325 spent were on those 6 failing campaigns LOL.

the money spent, $875 is a little skewed. The day before posting that thread i deposited $250. So ive lost what, $325? I blew through a bunch of money FAST with car insurance offers and couldnt get it to work. Not sure why. Targeted cheap urls wasnt paying .50 a view just couldnt convert. I shoulda stopped it earlier, but I kept swapping urls once they hit my "limit".

Another campaign I just screwed up and didnt catch a facebook url. Shame on me. I didnt spend a lot but it was a good $40 in a matter of a couple hours, if that.

One campaign i found a url with like 20 different bids. So i thought maybe this is a good url for people, WRONG.

So I paused all my campaigns and resumed my tried and true offer that is converting. It seems it runs well for about 3 weeks before it starts sucking. If i pause it for a week or two then start up again it blows up. So i'll just stick with this until the offer goes away or stops converting.

FYI the url that converts the best for me, i could look up the conversion rate, i bid .19 a view. So ur not always gonna get that .01 money maker

Coach, how does an optimization typically look like. As far as I know, you start with batches of 5 urls and expand. Does that mean, you just continue testing urls and deleting those that don't perform if half the payout is exceeded and no conversion?

And how long do you normally do this? And what about camps that have urls that just get like 5 impressions per url. You just add on more urls and leave the small volume urls there or delete them?

Yes I'll test that way. I set a budget for my test for each network and once I hit it, I either have a winner or a loser.

What does your budget calculation look like, Coach?

Is it like this as an example:

Target ROI: 100%
No. of Urls: 5
Payout: $10

Budget for offer per camp = $25 ((50%(due to 100% ROI)x $10x5))

is this about/exactly right?

Regards
Vincent

Right but that's the budget per url I'm testing, not per offer.
