Dao.Ad(ex-Daopush) is an advertising platform for monetizing and converting traffic.
Advertising formats: Push Notifications, In-page, Push, Popunder, Video.
We have been buying traffic in large volumes for 2 years. There were questions, but always resolved in a positive way.
There were issues with uprush (in terms of time), but solved this issue as well. At the moment, support works fast enough.
Support helps with black and white lists. Just regularly asked if everything is clear and how the traffic comes in. It asks for suggestions to improve the work of the site.
There is an opportunity for credit.
In the screenshot you can see the amount of purchased traffic.
Everybody have a good profit!
Put it to the test
Good day, placed DAO.AD Nativka and Pushi for test a week ago, initial impressions are extremely positive, everything is pleasing, especially the income. Adequate support responds to all requests. They even contacted me late at night.
I have a good account where it is very easy to watch the status and to set up the blocks. I got the money on Thursday as instructed.
Monetizing Push and subscriptions. Testing in different networks, now a month working with DAO. I work with DAO for a month now. In general the impression is positive - the income so far is more profitable than all who I test with, any questions are promptly resolved, the support team is always in touch. I want to note the competent attitude to the tests (when the profit fell, I immediately changed the preland and shifted to add advertising format Inpage on the landing - the income became even higher).
Now everything is great, I like working with them I will try to scale. Soon I will test their pops as well, let's see how things go there.
I work with DAO, not the first, we place a month Push and Popander and advertising, news website 45k users daily.
Income from both formats is high as promised by the manager of the income and rates of push and popander is steadily increasing, it is good.
Also decided to test a week Nativka, that I can say the results of the weekly test is 370k displays and 116$, CPM rates all week stably grew and continues to grow, CTR high, search engines are well perceived advertising, not swearing, script manager has helped to adjust to the design of the website, the payment is displayed on request. The end result is a successful test and I am happy with it. A screenshot of the story attached for interest.
I've never written reviews, but I read the affiliate here and came across reviews of DAO and just wanted to share my experience and impressions of the work and affiliate, because I've been working with them for quite a long time ...
I will not describe much - just share a screenshot stats from the video format, other formats will not show - the picture + - the same. Just still scaling these video campaigns to format push and popunder.
Not everything came out at once, but if you approach testing, analysis and traffic optimization properly - you can and do get good results.
I am also testing their relatively new format - I haven't got the hang of it yet, but it has a lot to work with.
If something is not clear - their support will always help.
That's all, good luck and promo codes for everyone!
The impression of daopush I have personally is categorically negative, because the affiliate does not make concessions to partners, that is, it is not a client-oriented company. I asked them to close my account and pay me the rest of the balance $7.52 and the minimum payment of $10 because of the complete cessation of work with traffic. They said the minimum was $10 and there would be no exceptions to the rules.
Manager said that our withdrawal threshold is 10$ or more, one of the lowest on the market. I told him that many traders pay from 5$, manager answered that he does not know and have never seen any brokerage companies with withdrawal from 5$. Although if you just look at the rating of push affiliate partners at the same affiliate link, you can see a lot of affiliate program with withdrawal up to $ 10. I personally think it is misleading or ignorance of the market of the affiliate program manager.
On the fact that I asked why affiliate program does not go towards partners, the manager said they do and offered to drive traffic on good terms. Although I said that I did not plan to work with the traffic. It is strange, well, maybe the manager was inattentive at the moment.
After all the conversations, the manager said that he would discuss my situation with the colleagues and he would write me a letter. Four days later I had to remind myself, since no one had written to me. The manager said that he would write me back within a day. During the day no one wrote to me, the next day too. Maybe they have a lot of work, and maybe just doesn't care about me, I do not know. I had to write myself again and again got a waiver. Rules are rules and there will be no exceptions.
I wonder why you then discussed something with colleagues, stalling for time? And if I'm wrong about this as a minimum, then what am I wrong at as a maximum?
Another manager apparently decided to look at my statistics and said that I drove traffic 2 years ago and they do not know what kind of traffic I drove to them. And how does this affect my request to close the account and make a calculation?
In general, I ask to close the account and make a calculation and the manager tells me everything about some kind of truth on their side, and I just asked to do it humanly.
Of course even if I will start to work with the traffic it will definitely not be with daopush.
All this is my personal opinion about this company. Screenshots of my account and all correspondence is attached not to be unfounded. I do not consider myself right or wrong in this situation, I just described the situation and my experience in dealing with the company. If suddenly something will be paid, I will add a review.
Not a bad project...I guess.
But the support is terrible.
Added sites, as indicated gave access to statistics.
Ten days the sites were hanging in moderation, I appealed to support with a question as to why so long.
After about 15 minutes, my account was blocked.
Sites have not yet checked and the account is already blocked.
The answer from support has not been followed, neither on the first appeal, nor on the second - why and why they have done so.
Moderator Roman Harmash, are you so touchy?
Get your nerves better.
Read at adswikia.com reviews that support for Dao is terrible and inadequate, but I did not believe it.
Well, and quickly became convinced, from my own experience.
Too bad there's no contact with the Admin...
With this kind of support, I do not recommend working on the project.
I am a webmaster, I create and sell websites.
First I do seo, promotion, put advertising space.
Before selling the codes of advertising I respectively remove.
At Dao there is no way to remove old, unnecessary or non-working sites.
During the account accumulated unnecessary sites without codes.
Once they were all stopped due to insufficient traffic and immediately after that the account was blocked.
As a result, sites that were not stopped were also blocked.
Lost my hard earned money.
Letter to support was ignored.
There used to be a female team of moderators working on the project.
Everything was fine, quick answers and help, moderation of the site no more than a day.
Now the moderators have changed, all men and all czars.
There are no answers to emails.
Moderation of the site from a week or more.
If answers come, it is with such an intonation, as if you owe them.
With this kind of support, I would not recommend working on the project.
From the first test of a few days I didn't get the result I expected. Then I even gave up for a couple of weeks and compared it with other networks. Now I'm back without much hope, but on a longer period of time I was pleasantly surprised (in particular I'm talking about inPage). At times, pay per clicks broke through $3.5 on a mix of tier-3 geos. I will not think ahead, but the potential is not bad.
For now, I left the IPP and connected pushes. I will test pops and report back later. I'm happy now.
Several times tested the traffic, it seems that they drive bots plus a third of the traffic is lost somewhere. As you can see on the screenshot a little more than 6000 clicks out of 10000 which they have an advertising panel. And not a single conversion. I can make such traffic myself by autosurfing, but there is no point. In general, it's a scam.
We have been working with the guys for more than a year now, and the impressions are extremely positive. The traffic is not bad, the support is even better, in terms of monetization of traffic they are ready to consider (and most importantly implement) different schemes of work for a particular partner. And it is evident that the network is developing and not standing still. So everything is great!
My experience in affiliate marketing is small, but my experience in marketing is great. Marketing is marketing, but I stepped on a rake with Dao.ad. For a long time I wanted to do affiliate marketing, and after I had more or less succeeded with teasers and other channels, I decided to try pushes.
What attracted me to the network Dao.ad:
+ Small deposit, the minimum of $ 10. Just to test the work, understand, twirl. Creatives to try. Just thought, just for beginners. When you regret to sink another 50 dollars. So the miser pays twice.
The interface did not cause any problems, everything is intuitive. I have no problems with the interface, everything is intuitive and easy to use. They work on European 9:00 - 19:00 CET. And this is the first inconvenience: you have to wait if you need to add and run a new company.
Everything would be fine, and you can get used to it, but I agree with the previous commenter:
- Exactly half of the clicks do not come either in the affiliate, or in the tracker. Empty. They are bots.
- The second point, which at first I fell for - this is really left conversions that come right on the first test. Especially if the conversion is a registration (which is still ok) or filling out a form. It hangs in the affiliate program in the pending status, then cancels or goes into trash. This is confusing and you do not see the real picture. Conversions force you to make another deposit and spin the campaign, optimize. Although it is not clear what there is to optimize with this kind of work. I would have regretted it if I had invested $50-100 $ to work with a normal network. I so went into deficit. Money spent, in the excitement of the appearance of conversions put more money. Now I have not twitch - almost 5 dollars are on hold frozen.
What are the conclusions:
1) Campaigns were launched in different countries, and everywhere there is the same problem. Many clicks that are neither in tracker (I hooked it up to understand what's going on) nor in the affiliate. It means that all sources are practically empty.
2) Imitation of conversions to stimulate customers.
Really, if it happens at small volumes, then what about the big ones?
Why I do not advise it for beginners: you'll spend money, believe in a decent ballance fullfilment, and there will be no result (and what will be just to start are emulations, which are not worth paying attention to).
I've been working with the guys for about half a year now.
At first there were difficulties with the interface and settings of the campaign, but here the support team was very helpful - they answered quickly and clearly, and always notified me when it was worth refilling the balance, adding creatives, etc.
As for the conversion and volume - everything is fine, in particular, for the required geo, I have not had any problems. I will continue to test the formats
I've been working with DAO.AD for a long time now. From the very beginning it was very difficult to understand: I created an account for an advertiser. It turned out that I needed a publisher. I wrote to their support team and received a quick and qualified reply within 15 minutes (despite the fact that it was already about 11 pm). Olga is a great specialist! She helped me to set up the code and explained how everything works. Many thanks to her!
Thepros: payments are always on time; support 24/7; high percentage of payments, split lendings.
Of thecons: a complicated interface: not completely understandable some columns (but over time you get used to it.
In general I am satisfied with this affiliate program, the traffic corresponds to the normal push networks, what makes me happy is that it is possible to get traffic at a fraction of the price existing in other networks. Yes, the volumes are smaller and conversion is lower on this traffic, nevertheless it is very profitable to test my hypothesis.
I am very glad that there is a new manager in the company, before there was Olga who did not give me the answers to my questions, she answered not in the right way and on the contrary ****. I even temporarily stopped working with them because I could not get a trivial answer to a simple question.
Now the manager Vlad, what I like, he always answers my questions very quickly, always gives advice based on data and personal experience, the last time I was going to test a gemble offer, I asked for advice on settings, which I got, in addition, he recommended and gave me a blacklist, even though I have not even asked about it, and I regularly ask for recommendations on the cost per click and what the optimal price for a particular offer. I always get useful tips and quick answers. I am very satisfied with it! I have a lot to compare it with, I work with many affiliate programs and referral networks. I am very happy that I have chosen this kind of specialist.
p.s. Give a bonus or something to the guy :D
