    I am considering to pay for some ad slots but I would like to learn a few things before I spend that amount of money on ads. Aside from having my banner on the Konga front page, how else do you promote my store if I pay for some ads? I have read somewhere that you send daily emails to people that have subscribed to your news letter. Is that right?

    adsales has not responded to my mail in the last 24 hours. The latest ad offer is ending tomorrow. This quite funny.
    I am trying to promote a product on my store.

    @Iheoma - Thanks for the feedback. Our Ad Sales team is always open to working with merchants who are interested in advertising on Konga, to provide the information needed to make the right choice.
    Additionally, we are currently exploring more affordable advertising channels which we will share with you all as soon as we implement.

    I am also keen on taking out an advert on konga but like the previous writers have noted, while it seems like a good idea you want to make an informed choice based on what you expect your return on investment will be. More importantly and realistically for many small businesses the idea of spending N7500 a day for a tiny advert is not realistic. There should be a realistic costing for adverts based on the current economic climate and recognition that the Naira has been devalued and for many importers everything has gone up. Long and short ot this is it is not possible to price yourself out of the market bearing in mind that we are all competing with fake Chinese products. Even for personal pleasure items.

    @Olabimpe… Thanks a lot for your feedback.
    We have different advert platforms (Homepage, Newsletter and Facebook paid and organic social); these channels have their peculiar advantages and expected reach.
    However when you indicate interest in placing adverts a Konga advert analyst reaches out to you on your choice of advert channel, what you intend to achieve with the advert and highlight the edge or peculiarities of your preferred advert channel before we go ahead to launch the advert.
    Can you please reply or send an email to adsales@konga.com'>adsales@konga.com with the store you had the advert on and which channel you subscribed for so the ads team can avail you a (number of clicks and level of conversion) report on your advert performance 
    
    @Ure, Konga is committed to the success of every merchant, hence appreciates your feedback. 
     As soon as  you indicate interest in advertising, we plan the campaign together factoring which channel hones into your advert objective. Once the campaign is over, we provide you a report on the advert effectiveness. Kindly send a mail for further inquires to adsales@konga.com'>adsales@konga.com

    I really hope that they are listening and will consider our request, if not fully, at least, to some extent. In the grand scheme of things, we are not really asking for a lot here. We are just asking for a fair return of the services we are paying for. Giving us a report of the traffic that we received to our store when we pay for ads, my friend, is a true measure of an equitable and transparent business practice.

    @Williams Please how many days was your ads for? Where there no significant increase in the number of orders you got during the campaign compared to without it?
    What category does your products fall within?
    @ure I think Konga his actually listening got a mail showing some analysis about past ads performance, they can still do more cause currently the ads is just a gamble.

    Ure you have spoken well. 
    
    In my experience, the ads were a major fail. Now there were no analytics provided to suggest what might have happened. I do not know how many clicks it got, there were no announcements in the newsletters or anything.
    
    Needless to say, I won't be using that form of advertising again until better value for money can be gained.
    
    Some businesses might have recorded good success from it though. Let's hope more folks share their experiences

Howdy, Stranger!
