Hi, Does anyone have any advice as to what are the most effective uses for the filters? Should mobiles be avoided or do they have a high optin rate, should we limit ourselves to T1 countries or just go with everywhere? Just curious..
Just my 2 cents...
I think that every Tier 1 rate above 75% has to be considered valuable. As for mobile clicks, as far as your squeeze page is mobile optimized it won't hurt that much the quality of the leads.
After being both buyer and seller for many years I have to say my personal preference is to leave traffic unfiltered, provided that it is not fake or duplicate clicks.
I have seen sales come in from some very remote countries. I have seen sales come in from proxies and other traffic classifications as well.
Moreover, I think in general pure T1 is just overpriced from a buyers perspective.
I understand why a seller would charge what they do because there are higher costs associated with acquiring and extracting it.
In general lists here on Udimi are mainly built on English speakers so just on that fact alone you are going to get very high rates of T1 without paying extra.
With regard to Mobile. Remember today there is more mobile traffic then desktop today. So instead of filtering it I would highly encourage you to make sure your funnel is optimized for it.
My 2 cents from being in the field all this time.
I agree, make sure your site looks good no matter what the viewer is seeing it on. I have had major success with using simple capture pages and simple format websites. When you start cramming all the latest tech on your site, it adds to load time and most phones do not perform well with that. I actually receive just as many opt-ins from non T1 countries. These people have money too and they want to buy stuff.
Many thanks Maurizio good point.
Many thanks Heather all great points especially the T1 I never thought of it that way.
Will be looking closely at my mobile capture pages from now on. Thanks again.
I'll be re-assesing my T1 strategy and simplifying my pages for mobiles.
T1 mean English speaking countries in case you didn't know. Only if you speak English should you stay with T1 countries. Other than that if you speak the languages in the other countries then go with everywhere else. It's not recommended to send you offer to non speaking English countries. (Just a recommendation) However, do you think even some of other languages or the majority of them can understand your English offer? You can risk that if you wish but just be prepared for the consequences of your sales/opt-in, etc.
As far as the filter, they are there so that you can narrow down specifically what kind of traffic types you want more. Say for instance...you may want to click T1 traffic as explained or a certain dollar amount per click traffic. It's up to you but mostly business entrepreneurs focus on T1 traffic but you can play around with the filter, it's not a big deal.
I think mobiles don't matter, they're people just like anyone else. It's up to the individual to take on your offer, not what devise they use. This is Christopher Jones new to Udimi. Hoped I helped. Thanks
I agree T1 is considered the best and all the businesses focus on that. But there are probably millions of people in India that DO speak and read English. What about Russia, Ukraine, Germany? There are many other countries that know English as well.
I agree to market to get the most bang for your buck, but the world is a big place and frankly, I think T1 traffic is getting worn out. My sales are up and down. Americans especially are bombarded with emails everyday. Most of the email providers have the filters tuned so well, that your offer follow ups wind up in spam most of the time. I have offers I don't even bother trying to sell because there are 10,000 other people selling it. Once money starts being made on a product, EVERYONE JUMPS ONBOARD and floods the market within weeks. But, that's the game we are in...
I guess I would be considered T1, I have credit cards, speak English and buy stuff online all the time. But I seek out what I want, I DELETE 95% of my email if I don't recognize it and my spam folder has THOUSANDS of emails EVERYDAY that I don't EVER SEE. Just an observation,I may not be the norm. But I think that is a reality we all must consider.
So, I will take all those crappy non english speaking emails if any sellers are throwing them away. Let's make a deal! It cost me nothing to send an email. These "lesser" customers are HUNGRY for products, I know it. This is why there is GOOGLE TRANSLATE. If they SEE something they like, they will translate the page. I want to tap this market, and there IS a market. WHO is selling to these people?? I could be the KING of T2 and T3 traffic!! If there is such a thing. LOL
