It’s not our regular test: Golden Goose’s media buyer Dima Zitelnikov ran one offer in three different ad formats!

Just wow, isn’t it? Hurry up to check out the results!

The first campaign: Pop-under

Our media buyer chose a pop-under as an advertising format for the first test.

He took a 2 click Peru offer with a payout of 16 cents and got almost a 20% return on investment.

Here are the details of the test:

Affiliate program: Golden Goose Period: 35 days 
GEO: Peru Revenue: $1836
Vertical: Mainstream Expenses: $1537.65
Category: Games Profit: $298.35
Traffic source: PropellerAds ROI: 19.40%
Advertising format: Pop-under CPA: $0.16
Flow: 2 Click CR: 2.44

This screenshot from GG’s admin panel shows the revenue and conversion rate:

And some more stats from PropellerAds:

Our media buyer chose CPA Goal 2.0 payout model.

The payout for this offer is only $0.16, so Dima Zitelnikov set $0.10 as a bid to test the traffic volume and not waste too much money.

Dima didn’t make any creatives for the campaign, so there was only a ready-made landing page from our dashboard.

The offer id9462 showed immediate success with 10-12% ROI straightaway.

Throughout the offer run, which lasted five weeks, our media buyer created several campaigns to blacklist some zones. He also gave up on the zones with expenses of more than $1 and without conversions. Gradually, he raised the bid from $0.10 to $0.15.

The second campaign: Direct Click

Our media buyer started another campaign with a different ad format: Direct click.

Take a look at the details of the test:

Affiliate program: Golden Goose Period: 35 days 
GEO: Peru Revenue: $2002.4
Vertical: Mainstream Expenses: $1589.405
Category: Games Profit: $412.995
Traffic source: PropellerAds ROI: 25.98%
Advertising format: Direct Click CPA: $0.16
Flow: 2 Click CR: 7.86

Two screenshots from Golden Goose and PropellerAds dashboards prove the stats above:

Direct click as an ad format doesn’t require pre-landing pages and creatives, so we didn’t go beyond our landing page.

Let’s take a look at the campaign settings:

Just like with our pop-under campaign, the bid was $0.10.

The test was a success from the very beginning, with 15-17% ROI. Dima didn’t do anything except make a blacklist and gradually change the bid from $0.10 to $0.15.

The third campaign: In-page Push

When it was clear that offer id9462 was working and converting, our media buyer added In-page push as an ad format.

Below are the details of the test:

Affiliate program: Golden Goose Period: 35 days 
GEO: Peru Revenue: $81.76
Vertical: Mainstream Expenses: $50.078
Category: Games Profit: $31.682
Traffic source: PropellerAds ROI: 63.27%
Advertising format: In-page push CPA: $0.16
Flow: 2 Click CR: 5.79

And screenshots as usual:

Here are the campaign settings:

 

For the In-Page push ad format, creatives are required. Best practice is to make 3-5 creatives and compare the results. As an example, here’s the creative that showed the greatest results. 

At the start, ROI was 30-32%, but there wasn’t enough traffic. Our media buyer decided to get the most out of the offer and created a new campaign with a bid of $0.15.

Conclusion

The results of our offer id9462 test are decent:

Period: 35 days

Overall revenue: $3920

Overall expenses: $3177

Overall profit: $743

Don’t be afraid to experiment with the way your ads are displayed to get the max results!
