Forum Solo ads [SUGGESTION] Reduce OD to 15% Max and ban fake claims!

My next suggestion is to reduce the over-delivery to a maximum of 15% and stop fake claims.

Here are some facts why we should do that:

  • Perceived value: seeing ridiculous over delivery promise just to make a sale it looks the same as selling the lowest price possible…
  • Buyers Expectations: When solo ads started there was no such things as Over-delivery, with time people started to offer some OD and now buyers expect it always, if the trend continues, the buyers will always have higher expectations. (An exception for new sellers can be made, i.e they can offer their more OD on their first 20-30 orders to get some traction)
  • It’s not viable long term business: Sure you can make some sales now but if more and more people start doing the same, very soon it will be impossible to make profit, let alone long term.
  • Stop/Ban fake claims: The most common claim is “Buyers list”. For god's sake this is more fake than the fake news itself. If you have buyers list you would never have to sell at ridiculous price,offer 30-40% od and 100% t1. Just go to warriorplus.com, JvZoo and see the EPC there! That’s what a buyers list means. It gives you an $1+ epc. Udimi buyers will buy and have expectations to make sales out of a buyers list jut to find out they didn't. They end up being disappointed and don't try again.

The more quality traffic & service on Udimi, the better the long term results.

  • Buyers will get quality leads to work with and most likely will come back to buy more traffic.
  • Seller will make a decent profit and be able to re-invest growing his list.
  • Udimi will be able to make revenue consistently as well


Conclusion: If we do our best to make Udimi a high quality marketplace both for sellers and buyers, there will be a lot of business to be done for years to come.

"Hi Patrik, We will inform the users once the restriction is completely implemented." Still feels strange because we who do it by the book get less sales

Very true..

Why are people still advertising 30-40^% over delilvery?

It could be in the way, you can advertise 70% OD but 15% will only go through, luring more customers by false claims.

thanks for your opinions, folks. Will add a ticket for my techs to cap OD at 15%. Everything over 15% will bounce back to seller.

Thanks for being responsive; this is great thing for raising the quality standards in the Solo Ad industry. I applaud you!

Raising the lowest cpc to 40 cents was a great achievement and I also think that 20% could be a good rate to limit OD too. As Kujtim said there was no OD in the past and when it was done it was according to seller tracking platform not buyer one (ie. seller sent 110 clicks to try to match 100 clicks on buyers tracker to compensate some filtering). That said I think there's another thing that could be done to make the platform even better and more secure. I'm gonna open a new thread shortly about it. Stay tuned!

Raising minimum to 40 cpc won't help to stop people from selling at ridiculously low prices using 30-40% OD.

OD should be limited to 10-15 % max. If not, I'm afraid sellers with good traffic will stop selling here.

Also, I agree that 'buyer list' claims should be banned, too!

agree brother... OD should be around 10-20% max... OD is an optional bonus or a way to "beat" the filters so the buyer get what he/she originaly ordered only... thanks for opening the discussion.

Honestly the insane OD is nothing more then a way to sell cheap...

It tells me you are not good enough to compete in anything other than price. Many good sellers will quit this platform..some already have. That will hurt the customers and Udimi as well.

I wish success to everyone. We should compete smart

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.

Want Responsive Traffic That Converts? 95%+ T1 Traffic + Avg. 10% OD

Agreed Kujtim. The insane fake OD train has got to stop.
