What should you know about Performance mode before start? 

Performance mode is a feature that analyses your campaign results and then automatically adds traffic sources to block- and whitelists on a daily basis. Even if you deposited 150$, you’d have access to Performance mode.

The table below shows examples of advertising campaigns launched for the same offer in the same region by different RichAds advertisers. The only difference is whether Performance mode was used or not.

Spoiler: CR became higher, while CPA decreased dramatically!

1 campaign was for India, 2 – United Kingdom, 3 – South Africa, 4 – Canada.
