Advertising is key to popularizing your venture (website, product, app, etc.). I have used Google, Yahoo and Facebook advertising in the past. The response has been definite, but the lasting impact was poor. If you’re not going to get a sustained bump, go for the cheapest effective advertising possible.
Have you had experience with these advertising networks? I would love to hear your opinion. Which ones required a high deposit? Which ones provided good conversions?
