Last night, I got a bit bored and decided to splurge USD10 on an ad campaign in StumbleUpon. *ok, go ahead and laugh your heads off*Â I find it pretty silly too.Â But I am curious how it works so I decided to experiment with USD10, at 5 cents per stumble (land upon my site).
I signed up my food blog, Best Foods & Recipes and placed a maximum spending of USD1 per day.Â Well, my maths is very bad so I don’t really know how many clicks per day.Â In less than 1 hours, I had used up my daily spending because I already received 20 stumbles.Â So, I know, 20 x 5 cents = USD1.
I narrowed down the type of stumblers I want for my site, i.e. of certain age, from the USA, interested in cooking and female.Â Â Well, I have 9 more days to go.Â And USD10 is my first stepÂ towards venturing into placing ads instead of just waiting for ads.Â A liberating move for USD10, eh?Â Hehehe.
I tell you, PayPal is evil.Â I mean this as a joke, of course.Â I got the tendency to click my PayPal to pay, pay, pay if I have money in my account.Â Right now, I do have money coming in from writing for PayPerPost, Blogitive, Blogvertise, direct ads placements and some referral fees.Â And they come in every day!
I wonder if Adwords take PayPal?Â That will be my next experiment.
