I’d like some genuine opinions on this. I’m not sure if the ‘Promoted Gigs’ feature is available for everyone - it states that it’s a beta feature available for selected gigs, but I’m not sure exactly how widespread it is. Anyhow, I was wondering if it does have a genuine benefit. It almost seems like I get more sales when it’s off, compared to when it’s on and set at the maximum setting of 15%.
My thoughts on this are to do with the way it displays your gig when it’s on. The ‘Ad’ icon which appears on the promoted listing of your gig makes it look almost like a spam listing, and I feel like people have become accustomed to ignoring advertisements, or products which state that they are advertisements.
Is that just me, or has anyone else felt the same way?
