Retargeting PPV Pop-ups

Repeat PPV pop-ups from the same IP address seem to correlate (at least at a glance) with a drop in conversions and a dip in ROI. In other words: As days roll by I find myself spending on repeat pop-ups to people that didn’t bite the first time around, and they haven’t been chugging any of Morpheus’ blue pills either, so I’m wasting my money. Take a look at these two graphs – The first one is the Repeat clicks – The definition of repeat here is “coming from the same IP during the last 24hs” – which is leaving out repeat IPs hitting 25 hours later or two days later. I’m betting after running for any significant length of time this adds up fast. The second graph is the ROI for the same period.

I tried to avoid repeats by tweaking the settings on the ad network – which seems to work for a time, and more or less randomly for me.

So here’s a thought… Stick a cookie in their machine as they pass by and read it back when they’re coming in to create a sequence of landers/ads/offers that you can take the person through. Instead of trying to pull a one-hit-wonder, how about presenting them with escalating offers? Or how about switching to another niche?

Interesting idea. It isn’t full-on retargeting – its still an interesting idea that could lengthen the life of a campaign.
