    Hey guys and girls Sasha here,

    So I recently tried buysellads, figured it was time to up my game and invest in some banner advertising on BHW!

    So I bought 100k impressions on BHW for $350 for the software that I already have a sales thread here. The first couple of days I had nothing so I figured why not speed things up and get my 100k worth in a couple of days.

    So here are my disappointing results :( I tried refreshing BHW etc ... BUT never saw my banner ... Not even 1 click?

    So $350 down the drain with absolutely no return :(

    That just cannot be right :(

    Yeah, lots of people use Ad-Block and there is a certain degree of Banner Blindness with those that don't.
    I think a lot of people have better success with renting sig spaces.
    As for BuySellAds, I have had mixed results (not advertised on BHW) and had better results with their promoted tweets.

    I only looked a couple of times to see mine but clearly there is more to the art of banner advertising than the effort I put in. I'm sure I know what I did wrong and may test again down the road but this is clearly money gone with no financial return.

    Such is life at times.

    I think I'm just going to stick to Facebook :) For the money I spent on Buysellads I could have had a better result :)

    You better advertise on IM blogs through buysellads. You will get good return for sure or go for direct advertisment on popular blogs. :)
