Where can I buy traffic?

Here are the main traffic providers:

The Ad Networks

Ad Networks are the companies that that serve as bridging points – and as traffic brokers – connecting buyers and sellers alike. Among some of the best adult ad networks out there, there’s TrafficHaus, TrafficJunky, Traffic Force, TrafficFactory, JuicyAds, AdXpansion, ExoClick, PlugRush, EroAdvertising, and Etology.

The Webmaster

There are still a lot of site owners out there that won’t sell their ad space to networks. They themselves prefer dealing with their site’s traffic monetization operations and you can negotiate ad spots directly from them.

Web Browsers

Another way to buy some traffic is to deal directly with the browsers for better ranking. The most popular browser being Google, you can go through Google Adwords to advertise.

What are the various types of traffic you can buy at an Ad network?

Here are examples of the kind of traffic you can buy at an Ad Network:

RON – ROTATION ON NETWORK

This is a campaign in which your ads rotate on a network of sites; spots that are part of a packaged deal and can’t be sold separately. This traffic typically consists of different sources (websites, blogs, forums, etc…) and this in turn, creates the RON.

REMNANT traffic

Remnant traffic is traffic at a discount.  Essentially, it’s the leftovers; it’s traffic the biggest media buyers in the game couldn’t do much with… and that is why it’s sold at such bargain prices.

But you know the saying, the leftovers of others make a feast for some!

The harder-to-convert traffic of industry players may actually be to your benefit if you have a decent geo-targeting strategy.

What are some ways to define my traffic and overall users?

One of the best ways to define your typical visitor is to create personas.

Personas are representations of your visitors based on the data you have on your traffic.

They help you understand the goals of your user and adapt your interface accordingly.

Here are the main questions you can ask in order to create a targeted persona:

Who is your visitor?

  • Where is he from?
  • What’s his annual income?
  • What’s his level of education?
  • Is he the type to use the Internet to access sites such as yours every day?
  • Does he purchase things on the web?

Why is he on your website?

  • What are the most visited pages?
  • What are the most commonly searched keywords?
  • What are the most clicked spots / elements?

How is he on your website?

  • What type of device is he using?
  • What’s his OS?
  • What’s the size of his screen?
  • What’s the speed of his connection? (is he on dial up?)

Impression

Impression is an important term to keep in mind when toying with online advertising. This is how many times ads are displayed or viewed on a website.

Impressions – also called views – are recorded each time a specific ad is shown to the viewer.

Conversion Rate

One term you will often hear in the online marketing world is Conversion Rate or CR.

It’s defined as the percentage of users who accomplish a desired action (ex: click) on a webpage, generating a commission in the form of a lead or a sale.

What questions should I ask before buying at flat rate?

  • Am I getting the best spot at the best price?
  • Has the spot already been tested?
  • Does the spot have stats and data to back up its price?
  • Are you prepared for traffic fluctuations?
  • Do you know if the spot allows all content?
  • Does the site limit you in how you can display your ad?
  • Does your spot allow all types of creatives?
  • Are you watching your ad rotation?
  • Is the price right?
  • And most importantly, do you trust the seller?

What is Media Buying?

A Media Buyer can be thought of as a trader, buying low and selling high, but with ads instead of stocks. He looks for the best ad placements and aims to monetize the traffic with the highest paying ad programs.

The more expensive the spot, the greater likelihood your ad will be seen by more people.

Remember, high traffic websites are like prime pieces of real estate: well positioned on a busy street corner with plenty of passersby.

A lot of publishers and advertisers are in fact, media buyers themselves.  If by chance they’re not, they’ll sure want to collaborate with one.

In other words, the media buyer’s a middleman.  And because he’s a solo act, it’s far easier to deal with him than a bunch of small time publishers.

Why would I want to get involved in adult marketing?

The adult industry is one of the most lucrative industries in the world today.

Even if the amount of online sales in other markets saw a surge in growth each year, the adult market would still surpass it by leaps and bounds. Not everyone buys their groceries or milk online, but you can bet everybody does look for porn online: 13% of ALL web searches are for erotic content (corroborated by Forbes) & 69% Of All Pay-Per-View Content Is Adult Related.

Tracker (Sub ID)

tracker (Sub ID) is a way to tag your campaigns, traffic sources, ad spots, and banner names. A tracker helps you pinpoint how many hits are coming from a particular source and how many sales are being generated.

Trackers are data… and data is information.

The information contained within a tracker should be relevant to your campaigns.

Trackers can be thought of as little memory cues that can help jog your memory on what you’ve done (that turned out to be successful), or that provide you with great insight of your success.
