I recently got one of my gig approved to go on the new beta ‘ad’ feature in the ‘promoted gigs’ section.
Didn’t see too many results until one day I looked over my revenues to fine a little ‘ad’ symbol next to one of my order revenue amount.
I than realized this order was from a custom offer I have sent to a buyer I have been chatting with, which has also placed 2 more orders a few days later.
Curious to know more, I contacted CS, only to find out that a buyer does not have to purchase your gig for the ‘ad’ review to apply. If a buyer clicked on your profile from the ‘ad’ gig, it will indeed count towards the ‘ad’ revenue for any orders coming in for the next 7 days…
Seems a little unreasonable to me, hence why I no longer use the feature, and happily relay on organic traffic.
