More Sneaky Tricks…

…This time using Google. I recently finished my first mass-market consumer software application. It’s a YouTube downloader called jiffieTube. I was excited to see the market potential… until I found out something very important. Houston… We Have a Problem! I should have done a little more research before starting my project. Turns out I can’t advertise for any YouTube on AdWords. Grrrr! I put some ads up on the other search engines… but they didn’t amount to much traffic. Even with 7+% CTR I was getting less than 50 clicks / day. I tried CPV networks and even experimented with paid traffic. It all sucked (to put it mildly). In a fit of pure frustration I started messing around with some very experimental techniques. And… one of those little tests is working surprisingly well. Especially since it involved creating intentionally obscure ads. You know… since Google wouldn’t allow any ads that actually describe what my software does. So What’s the Sneaky Trick This Time? Watch the video to find out…

    I got a wowwwwww moment while looking at your video. I have read about site targeting but the way you explained it on the video and how to match the ads with the audience of the site was another light bulb flashing moment.

    I finally got it.
