    Hey everyone,

    I'm with a network similar to cp4 l3ad and I doubt that their default gateway text converts well. Don't want to paste it here because it's quite some text, on the other hand I don't want to shorten it too much otherwise the user won't really know what to do.

    Is there someone that already went through testing different gateway texts and found a few winners or can give me some suggestions?

    And on top of that, do you use the standard background images that come with such gateways or always a background specific to your niche? (Just wondering what the difference is or if there is one, because all custom backgrounds I found make the text on it unreadable, no matter it's color)

    Thanks :)

    thanks for the quick response ericsson, but my 2 questions remain the same, as for how the text and background affect the conversions :)

    Yes it does.

    :)

    There was a ebook about this shared before.
    Interesting reading. He did a research for this what colour makes the most money, etc etc.

    I canĀ“t remember the name of the ebook now but take a look in that mate.

    ptpatil, i'm not with cp4l3ad, i'm using perfecttracking but my traffic right now is low (and i never used cp4l3ad or adscend media before) so i can't compare it at all. did you try perfecttracking before?
    So what is your CR with adscend media, if you don't mind sharing?

    Interesting question Alex, I would also be interested in some good phrases to put on gateways instead of the standard "fill out a survey" crap they all have

    I just explain to them what they have to do(complete a survey) to get what they want(video, etc..), and then explain to them what's going to happen to the webpage when they complete the survey.

    fair enough, I have the same stuff in the gateway already, was just wondering if there were some "conversion tricks" or improvements one could make to that :)

    ...because those long (and higher paying) surveys don't get filled out as much as the short zip's/email's, effectively resulting in less revenue? Thanks for the suggestion :)

    I've used all of the above mentioned networks and made the most with ************** and perfecttracking. I like adscend but I just didn't ever get the conversions with it that I did with the other networks, even after tweaking extensively. Here are some reviews of the gateway networks that my friend has written:

    Adscend Media Review
    PerfectTracking Review

    the "other" network is on there as well but I won't reference it here for obvious reasons. ;)
