No giffgaff ads for giffgaff customers

No giffgaff ads for giffgaff customers

I searched and found no duplicates

 

Hi giffgaffers,

 

Do you see loads of giffgaff ads hanging around when you're browsing the web? I see many giffgaff ads on pages giffgaff related (not refferal banners but ads!) Couldn't giffgaff save a lot of money by keeping the ads for people who are not on giffgaff? Ad spaces cost money - it is a waste of money to advertise to people who are already customers! I hope the marketing staff will save a bit of dosh by not showing ads to members - and hopefully with the money saved they can return it to their members!

good idea, but im not sure how they would filter it so that only non gg members would see the ads

ad clicks and conversions cost money, i doubt they are buying spots.

Cookies! - Any of you who are part of LinkedIn? Well, they have targeted advertising. Ever find that ads are really relevent to you on google? Its the same thing. Smiley Happy

I've noticed this too on Facebook. Everyone who likes the giffgaff Facebook page has adverts to "order a giffgaff sim today"...but 99% of the people who liked the page obviously already have a sim... Don't think it's been thought through properly.

Only a waste of money if you click the adverts Smiley Tongue.

The ads are targeted based on websites you have shown an interest in. I did not see any giffgaff ads before I joined, but now I see them everywhere, just because I visit this site so often.

Normally the payment model is a small fee for x thousand banners displayed, a little more for each banner clicked and then quite a bit of cash for every order or sale. Normally there is also a period where a sale or order made by someone who has "seen" a banner (maybe a week or so) will be classified as a view sale and payment is made for the as well. I this can be done, maybe via cookies, then it is a worth while idea, especially as some people will be classed a view orders if they order a sim fi someone.
