    Hi there, thanks for clicking on this topic.

    Recently I have been inside the forum for so much time and I wanted to give my contribute to all its users. The will of getting a job from home or getting extra cash has recently become my only though, there is nothing I want more than getting success online. So I start with you my first journey, or second one we can say as I am also running a YT channel which is very fun and is the thing I love most to do, but unfortunately is not really rewarding in terms of money.

    So here we are with the Journey about promoting games on G2A running FB Ads. I run 3 ads this month. 1 High-Price game, 1 Medium-Price game and 1 Low-Price game. The results I am expecting are not high at all, I expect from 1 to 3 sales at the end of the Ads. I will put 21 pounds in each Ad. The results I am expecting are not very high as if I manage to achieve 3 sales I will not get more than 2 pounds for this, but the good thing about G2A is that if the customers will buy products in future I will always get a part of their purchase and always receive part of it. Furthermore if people will start to share their link with other people I will earn on 3 party customers as well. So I am expecting this to work on a long term, not short.

    I read about guys doing the same and getting 10-30 per day, that would be a dream and maybe the ultimate goal as I would reinvest the same money always in Ads to get always more and more buyers under me.

    This is the plan. Let me know if you have any comments, I will keep you updated about this, if you also tried it out and failed in this please let me know as would be helpful to know it is a waste of time, but unfortunately all the guys that tried this stopped posting news about it.

    Thanks for reading it until here, I'll read you in the comments :)

    Have a good evening!

    Good Luck OP. I was promoting G2A in the past, all I got is 27 people in my Team ( level 1 ) and earned around 15 $ if you want to make big bucks you need a LOT LOT LOT more people to join your Goldmine Team.
    Keep us updated :) I've subscribed to your thread.

    Simply spam your G2A link everywhere -> gaming forums etc.
    100 % working method: post your link in gaming related facebook groups :)

    Goodluck OP, any other ideas of promotion? Or just strictly FB ads?
    Like others stated, best to promote your link everywhere to see some results

    Yep suggestion for OP: don't limit yourself with facebook ads only. You can use other social media + commenting on fresh created gaming articles using google -> search tools -> Past month/week/day etc.

    Thank you all for the good wishes. It really gets me optimist reading you. About the question of spamming the links around: I do not plan to do this, as I am testing if it is possible to get an autopilot way to get money online, doing less work as possible and putting more money, furthermore having a FullTime job I don't really manage to find the will to spam around when I get home. About using instead other types of Ads absolutely: I will try Facebook and if it works I will expand to Twitter and YouTube. This is the plan at the moment, but first I would like to see results in FB. The first campagin is active and will end in 7 days, I will be able to tell you more about its results in a week then.

    The Ad currently active is the High-Price game one, I am now going to activate the one for a Mid-Price game (10-15). No clicks until now by the way.

    I will send you updates soon :)

    UPDATE #1:

    No interesting news here. 11 Clicks but strangely 0 cookies (visits) on the sponsorized page. It must have all been from people clicking the Ad to leave a like or a comment. No traffic to the site then.

    I will update you in the late afternoon about any news.

    No it's not. A friend of mine still earns a nice amount of money from them.

    Hi men, thanks for your replies. Unfortunately I don't know what A/B test is, could you give me more info about it? By the way the Ad served is based on clicks on the website and seems very strange to be that over the actual 14 clicks there are no cookies in my G2A account, I also tried to test if the link was correct and if I click on it the cookies correctly grow up. For the moment the Ad is not working at all in terms of efficency, I get charged but I have no people actually landing on the store page, that seems very strange to me guys.

    Regarding G2A being a scam I don't think man, I purchased from them 2 times, both the times were successfull purchases and everything always worked out fine. About the payment I am also sure is quite reliable because if you think about that they sell games at 54 dollars and they give you 1,44 dollars if somebody buys from you, from here the 60% goes to the person you buyed from and the 40% goes to the person that buyed from the person yo buyed from. They lose a maximum of 3 dollars out of a sale of 54 and they got the advertising for free. It is quite a genious strategy and I am sure there would be some decent amount of money behind it.

    I will keep you updated about the last results at the end of the afternoon, now we are at 14 clicks but still 0 cookies improvement, so strange.

    Hi man! Thanks for your suggestion. That is probably the next step I will try if this doesn't work, I just wanted first to try a way to make money just by putting money and leaving everything in autopilot. That is my dream, in case this fails I try the same thing with twitter, if this will fail as well I will definitely go for manual work around and spamming around :)

    It'll definitely work you are just not seeing results right now. Try mixing a few methods, track EVERYTHING and upscale the methods that will work.

    UPDTADE #1.2: Visits from FB do not increase cookies, as a consequence I firmly believe that if the cookie is not registered the purchase doesn't get linked to your account. After several trials with different IPs and devices I couldn't record any cookies increasement by clicking on a Ad or on a Post from my Facebook page. This made me close every single Ad on FB for the moment. As proof of the method not working I tried using twitter and clicks from my email. Both were recorded so I can only assume that clicks from FB are the only ones not allowed. Reason why I will change my method using Twitter instead, keeping track of the situation, if it is changing or not on FB. I will keep you updated by the results I will get via twitter.

    Scandal news by the way, unfortunately I realised it only after having paid 3,24.

    Going to use this method with Twitter, please let me know if you are facing the same issue. Thanks all for the comment expecially this one I am quoting really gave me hopes to do better with the Twitter ones.

    I'll update you later then. Have a good friday people :)

    UPDATE #2:

    The journey has now moved to Twitter as on FB everything failed. Clicks from Twitter seems to appear in the cookies, got 4 cookies and 0 sales, will update you about more results lately.

    Can you promote G2A without a team and still be profitable? I know I have an old account somewhere, but I never did anything with it.

    You don't need a team to promote G2A i've started from scratch spamming my link everywhere on gaming forums, youtube videos, facebook groups and I've got over 2000 cookies. From all these 2000 cookies only 27 people joined my team. How people join my team -> simple, when they buy a game you earn a small % and the buyer (John for example) enters your Level 1 Team. When John starts promoting his referral link and someone buys a game from him -> he enters your Level 2 Team etc.

    Exactly you don't need a team, this is a work that can be done by a single person, if you then convince someone to buy from you they will become part of the team, obviously once everyone has joined and everyone tries to sponsorize the profits should increase a lot. By the way Neonskull, do you still have profit from your old account?

    UPDATE #2.1

    The cookies are working as intended, visitors a re coming but no sales yet. An interesting information that I can anyway give to you is that out of 8 clicks on my link of 1 Ad, 7 visitors were from iOS users, 1 from Android and 0 from PC. I am sure that this information can be useful to somebody that has for example an App to sell, if you have it on iOS I can assume that the campaign will be more successful.

    Stay tuned for more news from Twitter Ads.
