Summary: SocialMedia.com Test #16 got really interesting. After the glimmer of success in SocialMedia.com Test #15, I wanted to see if the conversion rate held up on volume. What I did was setup a $50 campaign. I blew that budget with a positive ROI so I setup another $100 campaign. I blew that budget with another positive ROI. I continued this cycle of creating a new campaign and blowing its budget over the course of about 3 hours (while watching TV with my wife). When the smoke cleared I had spent $784.29 and generated $1,530 in revenue on this particular campaign. If you do the math thats a $745.71 profit over the course of about 3 hours. 95% ROI on this type of volume is pretty sick. Just about 8,000 clicks is also a pretty solid test to judge the future profitability of the campaign. I will obviously continue testing it. 16 SocialMedia tests have proven a few things:
- You can’t judge the quality of a traffic source very quickly, because if I had, I would have given up on Social Media during the first few tests.
- You can’t judge the quality of a traffic source based on just one offer. I have rotated many many offers to find one that actually converts with this particular traffic.
- You must endure some pain to find a profitable campaign on a tier 2 traffic source. If you don’t have ANY money to burn, stick to tier 1.
