Here's a few things you could do-UPDATE #8
Welcome to my next update, I may need help.
On monday I got an AM from Zeydoo. My leads got checked, but my rates for my 2 profitable geos were cut 30% like @ShobhitAgarwal said.
To be honest I do not really know how to go on from here. Should I just try new geos?
Yesterday I started testing 2 other offers, because it was unclear if my leads were already checked then. Should I maybe stick to them now?
Has somebody ever had their rates cut and what did you do then (or what would you do)?
- Test the same offer with other traffic sources. You already have the data regarding which segments(eg. OS version, connection type, etc) are working on your campaign. You can use this data on other traffic sources. If you want though you can also run a campaign on other traffic sources for non working segments also( You never know unless you test if the results are similar or not) but on the non working segments aggressively optimize and cut out non working.
- If after the rate cuts the campaign will still be profitable (although not as much) then why not keep running it.You can do optimizations for zones and segments manually to remove the costier traffic. You may even get an uprate if its paying back well to the offer owner.
- Since propellerads does not allow lowering the cpa goal, if your cpa goal does not work for new rates, duplicate the campaign for new cpa goal and manually include/exclude the segments and zones. With the data you have you can make zone and segment based optimizations for your new campaign.
- You can ask your manager if there's some particular bad zones and segments that you can blacklist to help keep the rates stable.
- If you do the first point, you can also ask to revert the rates to test on new traffic sources and promise to not run on the current traffic source. But don't go back on your words. Your relationship with your affiliate manager and network is something you want to grow and nurture. Your manager will help you in a myriad of ways including finding good offers to promote and getting approved for private offers.
- Ask your manager
