    Hey guys, have you tested SS mobile inventory?
    I spent $200 in the past 5 days, with about 2,000 clicks, only 17 conversions, payout <$30.
    I promoted low-payout but easy convert offers just to test.
    While sort of disappointment :(
    I find some mobile sites & a lot of APPs are full of fraud impressions & clicks.
    It's a big challenge to separate them. Of course, research said 40% clicks on mobile are accidental or fraudulent.
    Any SS mobile idea & tips & experiences appreciated :)

    BTW, SS can't target carriers in some countries, like South Africa, Singapore, Malaysia.
    And some of my campaigns which have targeted carrier still got WIFI clicks. LOL

    $200 spent, $20+ revenue, profit -$180 LOL
    $1.1, $1.9 as converted offer payouts. High payout offers didn't convert yet.
    The low payout offers are some kind of easy converted, like one-click. So I have to say that seems a lot of fraud clicks

    spend 200$ for 2k clicks.... with an offer that pays 2$

    that means you had to have a CR of 5% to break even... good luck with that

    did you save that list tho?

    you do know that you can retarget these people again with similar offers at a lower cost

    Mobile campaign can't retarget since the cookie...
