Just a bad review about Epom ads network

    I write this in order to prevent other publishers lose time for this ads network.

    My website is http://kissmanga.com/

    I cannot place google adsense on this manga website, CpmStar ads has only "so so" profit so I try to find another ads network.

    2 weeks ago I read about Epom in digitalpoint, so I decided to give them a try.

    I placed its 728x90 banner in best spot of my website, the first three days the profit was good (about 35$, then 70$, then 32$).

    Suddenly I lost all my revenue, the revenue became 0 (include the first three days). And carry on the next days, there is a lot of impression but revenue always 0.

    I uploaded the pic

    I tried to contact them via email but must wait very long time to get the answers, usually I will get answer after 48 hours. And the answers were useless, could not resolve my case.

    (It's ok if unstable, but why always 0 USD???)

    (but still not get any revenue after that, already a week)

    I will wait for their last email and gonna switch to another ads network. Just wanna share my bad experience with them.

    Same for me, I am also getting 0 eCPM and 0 revenue - the only difference is that this situation is for me for the last 3 days, not for a week. But our situation is the same, regarding everything; even our answers, that we got from the support, are the same - but I got these answers in other order like you:

    1.
    "Unfortunatelly, our advertisers have a huge problem. Stats are changing every day... We've decided to switch them off for a while. We're waiting for the answer with explanation from them.
    [11/7/2012 6:50:40 PM] Epom Support Team: We're terribly sorry for such hurdles"

    2.
    "[11/8/2012 6:48:55 PM] Epom Support Team: We've changed ads for you"

    3.
    "[1:24:42 PM] Epom Support Team: Okay, already have meeting with sales
    [1:25:00 PM] Epom Support Team: We need to optimaze your campaign"

    So the only difference is that they are "optimizing your campaign" after the "switched your advertisers, changed your ads" in my case - and in your case they are first optimizing and after this switching! ;) Very funny ;)

    I am removing too their ads from my sites - it was a wasted time using this network!

    My name is Matt, I represent Epom Market here, on DigitalPoint.

    In this partucular case the problem was caused by statistics failure on the advertiser's side we work with for kissmanga, and this statistics info was passed to our system. That unpleasant situation with statistics happend for the first time here and affected only 4 publishers, unfortunately the author of the
    post kissmanga included. It is a very rare situation and it will not happen again. We are sorry for the inconvenience. The correct statistics will be updated in all accounts soon.

    The correct statistics will appear also in my account, Matt? Or you are talking about only 1 publisher, the owner of kissmanga?

    I have a similar experience as well..Their stats were showing zero for a couple of days but yesterday their ecpm showed 0.04 which was the lowest i have seen...Matt_Matt the revenue we have lost me for two days Oliboli for three days and others need to be updated...I however was not confidently told by your staff that it will be updated..Are we going to get revenue for the days we have lost or not?Also please fix the existing issues with your ads to avoid such problems for others because publishers work hard to bring traffic to their website when the impressions show zero revenue its like the advertisers are happy because impressions are shown to the readers but publishers end up giving their ad space for free...I believe epom is new its a very critical time for you guys so be wise and fix the issues quickly as i strongly feel EPOM has the potential but there are a few small but important things that need to be addressed immediately because a publisher cant wait for a long period of time and loose the money he might make from other advertisers..Just my point of view...Im happy with your helpful staff and i really do appreciate you stepping up and clearing our queries but would request this to be addressed as soon as you can please..Getting to the positive side of things im happy with Pavel your support manager and weronika(Im sorry if i spelt her name incorrectly)who are ready to help all the time.Even though they dont respond immediately but once they are available they always write back on Skype or email..So thats one thing you dont need to change :)

    Me too, removed their ads from my sites, I was tired to show them for 0 eCPM and 0 revenue and to wait for other promises from their part; I think this problem will never be solved, so I am not showing anymore their ads for free!

    Guys, did you find an other good cpm network? Because now I have some free ad spaces on my sites, I want to fill them up! Actually I am earning well with my principal network, but I still have free ad spaces; I switched Epom to Adprudence, but they have low rates, and also I don't like that they have campaigns only for some countries, they don't have international campaigns and I have blank ad spaces on my sites - so I want to switch again, for an other network; can you recommend me a good one?

    I was waiting for them to fix but no change.


    I had to remove their ads.

    I'm really sorry for people here, who haven't earned with Epom Market ad network, as for me, the profits are pretty decent. It seems like we're living in different worlds, guys, or perhaps, we're just working with different amounts of traffic, which, btw, is of varied quality as well. This is the only possible reason I can find. It should be clear for a publisher, from my personal point of view, that as long as you're getting low-quality traffic and your site isn't as popular, as you would like it to be, how come that you expect to earn enough even with the best ad network? I wonder, why some of us happen to blame everyone else, but themselves. I'm sorry I might sound a bit rude, or too direct to some of you, but it really gets annoying, how people use DP to moan and groan about some of their failures without any good reasoning for that. Thus, I find it important to state my personal outlook here. Thank you.

    Not to sound as a mere tub-thumber, I'm attaching the screenshot of how much I managed to make with Epom Market yesterday:

    Totally agree. Like, really: it comes as no surprise that decent traffic gives you decent earnings. I assume that Epom's strategy to approve "small publishers" is failing for their publicity. Thank God I haven't worked with scamming advertiser, and my rates/earnings are pretty well.
