So a few hours ago Micha Kaufman tweeted to let us know that Promoted Gigs are now a thing again.
Here’s a weird vimeo link he used, which seems to be the link used internally to provide feedback for the promo video:
And the actual tweet:
Not sure how I feel about this.
Last time they tried something similar, the structure was different and the limitations in place made it sound like it could work.
It didn’t though. They made that feature disappear within a couple of months.
So now it seems like you pay for clicks, and not when you actually make a sale like last time.
My main concern is how the search results will look like for buyers when this feature fully rolls out and whether or not we’ll get clicks but not sales.
