    I need a CL poster that can get ads to stick in the personals. I'm willing to pay $3 per ad, poster is responsible for providing description. I'll provide the pictures.

    I'm looking for approx 25 adds a week posted in different major cities during peak hours. Contact me at drh897(at)gmail if interested.

    Really? $3 per ad (x) 25 ads per week? $75?

    And you supply the pics? What about the actual copy?

    Pics are easy -- the copy is key.

    Also you want them posted in the personals section? Hmmmm, well at some point the poster will need PVA's -- about 10 of them. 10 PVA's @ $3.65 each == $36.50.

    Oh yeah, and some IP's to make sure they stick == lets say $15 on CloakFish to be conservative.

    So to get this going for you I have to spend $51.50. So it will take me ~3/4 of one week @ $75 per week to recoup my expenses.

    On your end, with a decently written ad, you'll get about 100-150 responses.

    So with 25 ads you'll get 2500-3750 responses.

    With a decent auto-responder series lets say you get a 2% conversion rate (very low). With 2% you'll get about 50-75 conversions.

    50-75 conversions and let say you *only* make $10 per conversion for a dating site (again a low number). So you'll rake in $500-750 and pay the poster $75.

    Your profit? $425-$675 per week for giving someone some pics.

    Wow...

    Add that to the fact that you have 3 posts.

    I recommend to anyone *not* to take this deal. If Dfunny wants to make it reasonable then maybe -- but be wary.

    I can assure that I'm not trying to take advantage of anyone. I'm new to this and am ovbiously naive.

    Personally, I'd rather do this myself and I've tried. I've posted on CL using different IP's, email addy's, and unique descriptions each time but the vast majority of my adds get flagged within a half hour of being posted.

    Would PVA's help to ensure my ads don't get flagged?

    DFunny,

    If you want to pay someone to post for you I recommended looking at the CL thread which discusses people who you can pay to post.

    Also, your posts are most likely being flagged for content. Reason being is that something which is flagged is usually do so by the CL community at large.

    Was a direct affiliate link put into your post? Instant flag.
    Did the post sound like a cheesy sales pitch? Flag.

    PVA's will only help when posting to the services section and/or when posting from a suspect IP. If the content is still flaggable, well then you'll get flagged.

    Best of luck,
    Calabama

    I would reccommend just going and trying to post an add or 2 every few days...once you get the feel for it then decide ifyou want to ramp it up. How do you know that the campaign you are about to start dumping $3+/per add into is going to pay out? If you just do 1 add a day you should be safe...It would be a good trial period for you.
