It sucks but we all know every ad has it’s day 😦 But what if you could flick a button and all of a sudden have that ad perform again immediately? This assumes that there will be similar #’s of people in each group, which I think is a reasonable assumption if you average it out.
For information on how POF got started, read this blog entry from Markus’s blog: How I started A Dating Empire Have a great weekend everyone! Split test 5 ads in the even group and split test 5 different ads in the odd group.
