Since last month’s update, I have seen a complete turn around in AuctionAds performance. Today we are at the mid-way point for the month of June, and I wanted to keep you updated on my performance. In my AuctionAds May Performance post, I mentioned "I would really like to see end of the month earnings around $750 and a little more than a penny earned per click." Since we are now halfway into the month (and actually two days in stats behind) and I have already nearly hit my target for the month, I am more than happy to continue running the AuctionAds campaigns on my site. Below is a rundown of the month so far.
Right on target to hit my monthly goal… in half the time!
I really can’t wait until AuctionAds improve their tracking setup (if they plan to). It’s really frustrating to see the first three days of the month in the $50 to $99 area… then on the 4th I only product $2.70 in commissions. I emailed their support and they said it was just a "coincidental down day". However, with consistently sending over 2,000 clicks a day and CTR rates always in the same area, I would just like a little more stats or explanation on what caused this. I understand sometimes there are down days, but the sporadic jumping of a down day at $2.70 days and a few high days in the area of $99.84 leaves one to wonder.
Unfortunately, I’m still hearing a lot of people not being able to produce high earnings with the program. All I can say is, KEEP TESTING! I have a lot of traffic to play with, so if you are a smaller site and seeing low numbers, I can understand. Testing can be very frustrating, and even more so when your stats are not what you expected. I went through this process last month when I started running the program. I still feel eBay’s higher commission structure that went live this month, had a major factor in my higher numbers.
I’ll keep you updated on how numbers are looking at the end of the month. Feel free to leave any comments or advice for others on your AuctionAds performance.
