    Hello, I am running a test campaign on adxpansion. I am planning to spend $20 daily ( actually I will spend $10 daily and my A.M. will match that so in total I will have $20 to test my campaign daily). The offer I am promoting is paying $4/lead and I need to get only 3 leads to get a positive return on investment.

    Now, the problem is they are not approving my landing pages. Firstly I tried to direct link to the offer and they rejected my campaign. Later on, I got a landing page setup but again my campaign was rejected. I won't say adxpansion support is good as I have tried contacting them a few times on skype but they didn't respond. If any one can help me in getting my campaign approved.

    Reason of rejection - http://prntscr.com/w9av7

    P.S. :- "Wasted" if you can share a few tricks ;)

    Hi

    Try to make a simple adult website containing porn, then after approval do whatever you wont with the site!

    How did you get your AM to match you? I didn't know that was even an option (I am not on adxpansion).

    Thanks for the write up, I have a campaign on sitescout so I will reciprocate one day soon.

    Problem was not with my landing page , we had some confusion. And the adxpansion support solved my problem.
    This is what I always do, when ever I create a new account on any advertising portal , I find out affiliate manager's skype or any available I.M. details and ask them if they are running any promo offers.
    I did the same for adxpansion and got "match upto $500" offer.

    Update - 1

    Day was silent I didn't receive any lead. I got only two clicks that too not from my text campaign not from my banner. I am going to increase my cpc and will create a CPM based ad too. I am doing all this in adxpansion , I am not a pro at media buys but will try to answer any question if you do have.

    Hey,

    Kudos for getting started...

    A few things to note... Adult traffic is tough to convert or at least has been for me in the past. I don't do much in this vertical anymore. However, the same ideas still apply. Make sure that you have enough keywords in your campaign so you can grab enough impressions, split test CPC versus CPM, but most importantly:

    Make sure to use their conversion tracking pixel to track your campaigns and block the non converting sites.

    Separately, shoot me a PM with your landing page and banner ads zipped up.

    Thank you, I have filled up my campaign with targetted keywords , I am new to media buys but not new to internet marketing and I think this will benefit me. Any ways , would you kindly explain "Make sure to use their conversion tracking pixel to track your campaigns and block the non converting sites."

    PM on your way.

    Didn't get any conversion again , received 7 clicks but not a single conversion. Looks like I am doing something wrong. I would really appreciate any kind of guidance by "wasted" or any media buying pro.

    P.S. :- Still waiting for reply to my p.m. to "wasted".

    UPDATE - 3
    Got 11 clicks on my landing page , 6 of them reached my offer but no conversion - this all was for my CPC campaign. For my CPM campaign I got 13k+ impressions but not a single click. Looks like I am not ready for CPM campaigns. I will carry on my CPC campaign. I will try a new landing page tomorrow.

    You say it is a PPL offer. If it is for signing up to a dating/webcam site, you need to know that those things can convert anywhere from 1:20 to 1:5000, depending on the traffic. Dont expect a conversion from 10 clicks.

    I was out on a trip, sorry for not updating the thread. I received 14 clicks to my offer page and 43 clicks on my landing page. I have talked to support and they asked me to try RON campaign and I am doing that now. Will be back with next update soon.

    You can check my stats here :-

    Who says RON campaigns means highly cost. I am unable to attach images somehow, here is the link to my stats :-
    http://prntscr.com/zgwwq

    BTW I made $10 today with 2 conversions. My A.M. matched my deposit so now I am at

    $10 spent-$10 earned = $0. My bank is not allowing me to create VCC now, I will figure out the issue and will continue this campaign later.
