I’ve been experimenting with Project Wonderful these past few days. And I found a way to maximize my money by advertising on it and get targeted traffic at a rate of almost $0.01/visitor.
The technique is not to advertise on a popular site where the bid war is going on and would take me at least a dollar to get my site on its ad box. Instead, the technique is to advertise on lots of small sites by bidding at $0.01/day on their ad boxes. At least 20 sites per day.
Here are my thoughts behind this technique. First, sites that accept only $0.01 per day advertisement or below are small sites with less traffic and probably new members. The fact that they put a Project Wonderful ad on their site tells me that they want to make money online. 99.9% of owners of these sites will click the Project Wonderful ad on their site because they wanted to know who are advertising on their sites. It’s not illegal to click your own ad on Project Wonderful.
Because of this, even if the site where I advertise is just a small site, I know that at least one visitor will click my ad and will visit this blog, i.e., the owner of that site. Just for 1 cent per day, I get at least one visitor. I say, these are targeted visitors because these are site owners who put Project Wonderful ad on their site wanting to make money online.
Since I blog about SEO and making money online, these are quality traffic, right? 🙂
And I started bidding on sites automatically by using Project Wonderful’s Campaign feature. That campaign feature is a useful feature because you don’t need to bid manually. You’ll just specify the criteria of the sites you want to bid, your maximum bid and your daily budget, and you’re good to go. As for my campaign, I set it to automatically bid 1 cent to any sites that has a minimum bid of 0 cents, with a daily budget of 20 cents. Now, I’m getting at least 20 additional targeted visitors everyday from Project Wonderful.
At 1 cent per visitor, that’s cheaper than advertising on Adwords.
Of course, SEOing is still better because you get targeted visitors from search engines at 0 cents. 🙂
