Kelan Stone, Head of Members Area Business commented, “These Q4 statistics provide valuable insights for advertisers. By calculating the average CTR of all display ad formats, Members Area traffic does generate more clicks than general web traffic. A typical Members Area user is logged in and browsing inside the dating site, he has already provided the site with his personal data and in many cases, also his credit card details. This makes him a qualified potential user/purchaser of many other similar services and this is why Members Area traffic is so valuable.”
Stone continued, “The majority of our dating traffic covers English speaking GEOs which further helps advertisers to monetise their offers as they only have to create compelling messages in one language, making testing less time consuming in order to find the right formula for conversions.”
Advertisers can purchase this exclusive Members Area traffic from WhiteLabelDating.com, Adult Friend Finder, Traffic Mansion and Dating Factory via self-service from ExoClick’s admin panel or by contacting their dedicated ExoClick account manager.
