Recently Ad.ly launched its self serve advertising platform which allowed anyone to go in and purchase tweets from publishers. When we relaunched the ShoeMoney System I tried it out with a 1200.00 test buy.
Even with a small budget of $ 1200 I was able to get over 30 tweeters including:
The campaign stats:
Here are stats from part of the campaign:
Total cost: $1,138.65
Followers reached: 411,772
Total clicks: 3,253
Campaign CTR: 0.79%
Average Price Per Click: $0.35
So how awesome was the return? Well…. I am such a badass Clickbank marketer that I did not know I could not track my own affiliate for my own product…. so I have zero stats on exactly what did what.
However we did do over 40 sales that came from twitter as a referral that did not have an affiliate code… which would equal $8,000.00 per month, but again I am not sure they came from ad.ly…. there is quite a bit of talk on twitter about the ShoeMoney System.
I will do another test buy next week and report more accurate ROI 😉
But with the introduction of the self service platform now on ad.ly I am finally starting to see the 1200 plus people that I have referred to ad.ly start to make some cash ;). This was always the biggest feedback that we get from people who signed up to be publishers with ad.ly. They just never got any offers. Well *some* are now:
I hear you…. big deal… well its better then a goose egg. Its still very pale in comparison to our earnings from sponsored tweets:
But with the self serve advertising network now running on ad.ly we will see what happens. Better get on board and sign up now!
