I think there could be a compromise on the bump to satisfy all. How about shortening the bump to 10 not 15 . 15 is usually quite a long wait can sometimes be up to 2 days . Also if a person wants to pay for multiple listings then let them use them to their advantage by being able to rotate and quicken their bump ability. Everyone has this option why cant we use it
another idea is increasing the main bump price in tiers if you are in position 5 and bump it costs $100 too bump if you wait to bump at 10 its $50. Just an idea I think you get where iam going with this less people will take the early bump but those that do may have it
Every industry especially the Internet Marketing Industry is dominated by the big players . They keep things interesting and give us smaller guys inspiration to try to reach higher for that dream. If you take that away here this site will fall flat .
Yes, something else needs to be done here. I fail to see where the fairness in this is, you are cutting of the legs of other vendors with this action as well, vendors that are trying to make a living out of this and that relies on selling in bigger volumes.
Some of us has worked hard to get to this position, we have all started from zero. All sellers have the same opportunity! Many don’t realize that you need to put in a lot of money ant time to grow, this i they key to it all if you want to sell. If you'r not ready to do this, to be able to grow, why should we that have get punished, shouldn't it be equal marketing for all?
Let's face it a lot of sellers see this platform as a side business, to get a few bucks to help out there economy and others are simply not ready to put in more time and money to grow even if they have the exact same opportunity as everybody else to do so.
As James put it in the forum" Google doesn't "limit" your bid on each keyword lol. Basically no other site "limits" people from buying ads in the name of fairness."
Some have already started to reacted to this strange change and more will probably do so once they see how it may effect them in the long run.
may I suggest lowering the find sellers to 48 hrs as well . 72 hrs put us way way down
I just watched something that may become a huge problem. Because the people who advertise often cannot rotate links through the system faster I JUST WATCHED IN THE LAST HOUR 2 people who bumped and only stayed in number 1 for less than one hour . Now that people have to wit when they can bump everyone is rushing
My mistake only one got bumped
Too many changes too fast...
Let it play out some time.
I am sure you have stats and data on the backend. Use and compare those.
Glenn there is massive competition in general online in some niche's google takes 99% of the keyword revenue, some businesses run at loss on some keywords just to stay relevant. Some day's you'll get some orders and it can make up for days that are slow. Also you have a newer profile, Udimi has many long time regular users that can get burned out after they buy from you and wait a while before buying again. I find usuallyNovember and December slower, people spending money on holiday gifts for themselves and family.
