You don't have to pay to sign up though. Lol.
Wrong. You don't have to pay for the privilege to advertise as a vendor, or to be a buyer here. Promoted sellers are on the homepage anyway. If you buy a solo deal, Udimi will promote the heck out of you, plus promoted sellers are also located right at the top of the find sellers area too. Isn't that enough for you?
That's a different proposition all together, plus I've seen sellers move up and down all the time in the rankings, depending on their ratings etc. Udimi should never become a "pay to play" platform.
Then this becomes only a pay as you go proposition for sellers. Vendors should be rated by performance, customer satisfaction, and integrity, not on the size of their marketing bankroll.
Some of us do offer that as an option Scott.
it's got my vote too. Cheers!
Totally agree. The onus is on the buyer to make sure their funnel is ready to go before placing the order, and that on UDIMI, UDIMI rules.
Definitely agree here. We should be moving away from "made sales". Apart from being easily gamed, this just encourages the idea of solo ads as some get quick rich scheme, especially amongst newbies. Sales are nice to have, but not a given on the front end. What's more important is that the buyer has got a good offer, a funnel, is tracking their clicks, and optimising for best results.
Definitely a good idea to prevent people taking advantage.
Traditionally, the OD was to ensure the buyer got the clicks they paid for. E.g. A buyer bought 100 clicks, so it would look rude to send just 96 because of the vagaries of click tracking/filtering, so you made sure it crossed the line for them. Since it was impossible to always cut the traffic off exactly at 100, they'd end up with a few extra clicks. Kind of an unexpected bonus, and that's how it should have stayed. Big OD's are just front-loading a huge discount on the clicks.
Yet still some buyers who contact me get upset at the already low prices! I expect they actually want 30 cent clicks, 40% OD, AND guaranteed sales. Unfortunately, such a thing exists only in a world with two Tuesdays in it.
There has to be a limit to this crazy race to the bottom. FB is already a graveyard. In the end no one wins. Not the seller, who, unable to reinvest in their list, goes broke. Not the buyer, who just gets a lot of very low quality leads. Not the platform itself, as buyers look for better sources of traffic. The whole niche thrown under the bus for a bit of "drinking money", as they say.
I've got traffic that may suit. PM your link please so I can check it out.
I have traffic in this space. Can I see your link please to check if it suits?
My suggestion is to try out several of the quality solo sellers on Udimi. This way, you can test their traffic and YOUR offer. It's the only way to know.
Hey Rup, I have traffic for this sort of audience.
Also, I'd like to add, can Udimi not send funds in the sellers nominated currency, or at least offer a selection of popular currencies for the transfers? Like, US, Euro, Canadian and Australian dollars? This would avoid the hefty exchange conversion fees that PayPal imposes. Up to 13%! Thanks.
I agree. Apart from their initial 2% transfer fee, Paypal takes another huge chunk of change out when I send these funds to my bank account, because of the currency exchange rate, as money from Udimi is deposited in US dollars.
Let me see your link please, it could be a good fit for my list.
