Are Findit-Quick any good?

Quality traffic?

We thought we'd try FIQ after having discussions with their PPC advertising manager, a lady called Lorie who was extremely helpful and answered all our questions.

Even though all our search terms at Findit-Quick have been only bidded at one cent, our deposit of over $1000 has dried up in a month. Much of the traffic seems to come from partner sites like Blowsearch and Masterbar

However, after over an hour of researching their sites, I can't see where these sites can be receiving such enormous amounts of traffic from. Those sites have hardly any links to them in Google.

Anybody else used Findit-Quick? What do you think about the quality of traffic from them?

Thanks :)

I have never used it but this probably tells you all you need to know:

Many clicks from small partners. Hmmmmm...

What was your ROI from that initial 1K? Do they have an affiliate program that pays their users/partners a percentage of each click? If so, I'd take a close look at my logs if I were in your 1K shoes.

1Lit,

I'm glad to see that Lorie was helpful to your questions. (She always is)

You do realize that you had your listing listed as a (CATCH ALL) in our system.

This means that your listing is shown on every search....for all keywords (about 250 million a month)

This type of listing gets alot of traffic.

If you need more help fine tunning your campaign, contact Lorie and she will help you.

My biggest problem with any 2nd tier PPC, is that they spam me to attempt to get me to try their service (FindIt-Quick) included.... (What happened to account reps earning a "try" the old fashioned way?)

I also thought PPC engines would take a que from ah-ha (What's with the hyphen in the domain name?) Why create a branding hurdle, that shouldn't exist?

We own both findit-quick and finditquick

As far as the Spam issue. We have full time reps doing nothing but phone calls.

Is it possible that you received an email (ASKING) if we can send you some info?

I'm afraid my test with Find-it-quick is turning into lose it quick. Can you address where most of the traffic is from (Geography)? Thanks.

Hehe... frustrating as it may be for the company owner, public forums can sometimes have a magical effect on customer service.

Customer service is not "magic".

When someone calls, we answer the phone.....

When we get an email....we reply.....

But maybe your right.... many engines out there don't reply for days ...if at all ;)

1Lit, what was your R.O.I with findit-quick. Even if you received about 2% from the campaign, thats still 2 thousand actions from 1 cent per click.

If your R.O.I was nil, then I would seriously question their traffic.

Hi finditquick. I sent you a stickymail with my details a couple of days ago. Looking forward to your response.
