    Always asked myself how imgur traffic converts compared to reddit.
    I'll take the free review copy if that is still available.

    Hey thanks for this thread. I would love to test this out on one of our eComm stores with a review copy. If it works well we have thousands of clients looking for this type of service and can contact about 150,000 etsy sellers instantly and I know a lot of them with the right sort of products would jump at the chance of using this service. Looking forward to learning more.

    I gave out all the review copies. If you were one of those that got one I'd love to see your review!
    To those who unfortunately didn't get one, sorry. However, I am running a $37 deal for this service so if you're interested message me!

    Hi all, I was fortunate enough to get a review copy for this service.

    Short answer: it's bloody amazing! long answer below :)

    Long answer: Spoke to the OP via PM and then via Skype to give the details and talk about the strategy. Was told that the product I was promoting would work well given it's niche. I was given a time when the promotion would start the next day. OP gave me lots of great info about tactics and best times to post etc so we re-scheduled the post for the next day.

    The post went out and the OP messaged me to tell me he had started. I saw a gradual increase of traffic at first and kept watching the post on imgur to see how many views and points the post had, it was growing steadily for the first 2 hours and I thought oh this is nice, a steady but normal amount of traffic and then the OP told me that as soon as the mod's have approved it that it would be up on the front page and that's when the bulk of the traffic would come through.

    About 2 hours after he messaged me to let me know the post was started he said its up on the front page. I refreshed and it was at number one lol. It stayed at number one for a few hours, about 5 or 6. It ended up having over 250,000 views and 10k+ points. I had a link placed in the post as soon as it reached the front page so a LOT of traffic came through to the site and it generated a bunch of sales.

    I'm sorry but I dont know how to add pictures, if I did I would have posted a ton of savage memes in stupid threads but alas still have not figured that one out otherwise I would post some screen shots of the stats page of the site to show you how nuts the traffic graphs look for those few hours. but here is the traffic it generated below.

    Hour 1 48
    Hour 2 79
    Hour 3 542 (half way through this hour it was got to number 1 on the front page.)
    Hour 4 971
    Hour 5 793
    Hour 6 718
    Hour 7 649
    Hour 8 354
    Hour 9 198
    Hour 10 129

    After this it trailed off down to 40 then 20 and stayed at around 20 for the rest of that day

    The site in question was in the UK so the first 4 hours was the night of the first day and then the rest the morning of the next, so bare that in mind too when you think of sales because there was high shipping costs and long waits so it did very well in terms of sales considering the vast majority of the traffic was from the US.

    It generated 4,871 visitors and 10,796 page views over those 2 days in total. its still generating traffic now and sending decent traffic compared to my usual levels. it generated 11 orders totaling 522.17 pound sterling so that's around $700 give or take a few bucks. The average order was just under $50 and that's how much the things are so it was not exactly a cheap item either and it was very very niche as well so I am blown away at the results.

    In my book that's a result lol.

    The good, its great I'm more than happy, it was fast, it delivered WAY more than I was expecting.
    The bad, it wont work for everything, dream on if you think you can straight advertise there. it has to be something that can go under the radar and seem like a genuine look at this cool thing style post.

    Such an amazing and detailed review.

    I wish I could use it in place of what I wrote in my sales thread!:D
