Now the top 10 solo deals are on the members home page...you never get any orders from the solo deal. I get you can buy as many solo deals as you want. Heck I have purchase into July already....and Its only May 1...

But to be honest...if you purchase a simple solo ad which only shows up on the solo deals page.... don' t expect very many orders.

To be honest don't expect many order if you are less ten top 5.

This leaves many of the larger service providers searching to sell clicks in other market places...which is fine, still I think would be better to allow the solo deal page be the main buying page and not the home page in the members area. This makes the simple solo deal more valuable.

I also wish they would add back the chat box to the members home page. Sure it had some junk, but it was a nice small free way where anyone could say in the chat box "clicks available today" and it was fun and more interactive. The forums are nice but they just aren't the same feeling as the additional instant chat box like there used to be.

Also there used to be on the "Find Sellers" page a dropdown optin for "within 5 hours" and now the only optin is "within 24". When I would set my profile to accept within 5 hours when I would wake up in the morning amd I would show up under the 5 hours dropdown and I think would get more instant orders from that, and it seemed like there used to be a lot more action in the Find Sellers page with that within 5 hours option.

I agree to both of you but is it just me who thinks that it shouldn't take this long to get a promoted spot once you buy one, i have to wait for 21 Jun.. thats almost 2 month ahead... it´s a long wait and who knows what will happened until that time...

Too many sellers and not enough buyers. Same problem wherever you sell solos these days.

I have $600 invested into future ads starting May 20th....I used to get orders from the Solo deals page between promoted ads...NOW I GET NONE...no orders for 3 days!!

Solo deals do not allow you to change price...but if you have a promoted offer....its on the members home pages and YOU CAN change price...no fair...but it is what it is. My solo deal has a hire price then my promoted prices...

Very few orders come from the Solo deals page now... I would not bother buying simple solo deal its a waste of money.

I used to get 3-5 orders a day from the simple solo deal...not even the promoted solo...So this kind of sucks now. No orders in 2 days... First time this has happened in 2 1/2 years. I have process over 3,000 orders ... very weird direction we seem to be going in.

I feel like the current build of Udimi is working pretty well all in all at the moment though all in all. If you look at the members home there are many sales happening every hour. Competition from sellers has grown over the past year, there are now more sellers and more aggressive sellers. But from the sales stats it looks like there are still many buyers too. If it costs $600 per month for a promoted ad 1 time each week, I think you can still make back multiple times the cost.

added later

Simple solo deals could use a boost though. I think removing the promoted deals on the "Solo Deals" page (but still leaving them on the member homepage) and have the entire Solo Deals page be Simple Deals only. And I think it would be useful to have at the top of every sellers profile a link "back to Solo Deals" so that would send more flow to the Solo Deals page, from all seller profile visits.

yeah at the end of the day more people selling is cool...I just feel promoted sales should only be shown on the solo deals page so people that buy a simple solo promotion have at least a fighting chance

Yeah removing promoted deals from the members home page would work. Or moving simple solo deals to the members home page under promoted deals would work too, since the members home page seems to be the most visited page now.
