    I've spent several hundred testing different campaigns through Adfonic. I've ran general campaigns, optimized campaigns and any other campaign in between and none of them converted. I've tried driving traffic to several mobile optimized sites and none converted. I've tried using click to call option and they registered 1000s of calls and we've received 0 phone calls - none of them were actual calls.

    It is very hard to make mobile campaigns work, however it is much easier to make them work through other mobile advertising providers. Bottom line is - STAY AWAY FROM ADFONIC!

    I'm curious of the look and feel of your ad campaigns. I have been using mobile ad campaigns for over a year, mainly with admob, but I have used others with reasonable success. If you would like I will give you my opinion about the ads you were using. You can PM with the information.

    I currently use adfonic and have done it for about 2 months now. I really enjoy their traffic and I run a couple of really profitable campaign there. Maybe you just did something wrong

    I also had no joy with Adfonic, I got 800 clicks and 700 clicks to my ads, sending traffic to mobile optimized
    squeeze pages. Not 1 subscriber, I tested it because I was beginning to wonder. Plus the traffic came in so fast (20 mins) I
    didnt have time to adjust anything. I stopped the campaign. I believe it can work but obviously not like that LOL.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated as I am sure that this is the way to go for the future.
