My Experience With Nautanki
Firstly, Nautanki.tv is no scam, I have been trying it for five months. And the payment is always done on time. But a major problem with Nautanki is that it pays its publishers in multiples of Rs. 10,000. So if you have even made Rs. 9,999/- in a month, then you will not be paid in that month. You will have to wait for another whole month to get your rightful money.
When I first started using nautanki on one of my sites the money generated was unbelievable, with a traffic of around 3000 uniques daily, Nautanki was making close to Rs. 2000/- daily. This was a dream. A dream that ended in a month or so.
As time passed, I was of the opinion that the money would only increase, as Nautanki would end up making more money with time ( with increase in advertisers). But I was in for a rude shock, though the advertisers increased, the revenue continued to spiral down. Though the traffic of my site has increased from 3000 uniques to 6000 uniques, the revenue generated through Nautanki has spiralled down from Rs. 2000/- to Rs. 200/- a day. A fact which is hard to digest.
The worst thing about Nautanki is that a month back they started auto-playing their videos on publisher sites. This was a real disaster. Playing the videos automatically, without the users interest, was an indication of Nautanki’s desperate means to make money at the cost of user experience. Imagine loud videos being played as you are browsing. That is surely one irritating experience for your site viewers. And this was something that I did not want my site viewers you to experience. Though I was making around Rs. 200/- Rs. 300/- with nautanki, I decided to scrap it off from my site.
Suggestions To Improve Nautanki.tv
Stop the auto-play of the videos immediately.It is very irritating.
Reduce the limit from Rs. 10,000 to around Rs. 3000/- to Rs. 5000/- so that even smaller websites could use it to generate revenue.
Improve the video content. I know it’s a hard task to generate unique video content, but compared to television standards, the content on Nautanki is simply pathetic. If nautanki really wants to make it big, then they must find a way so as to improve their video content. It may be difficult but it is not impossible.
Let the publishers know the reason for a fall in revenue.
Increase the revenue share of the publishers. And also increase the advertiser network.Presently the ad network of nautanki can barely be counted on one’s fingers.
My Advice To Publishers
Nautanki.tv will only help websites that have huge traffic to make money. Also the auto-playing of videos could irritate your site audience and lead to a degeneration of traffic. Though there is no harm in trying, I would recommend, publishers to stay away from Nautanki.tv.
A Word Of Appreciation To The Founders Of Nautanki
To start something innovative in India, is really credible. And I would say hats off to the Nautanki team for conceptualizing a unique idea like Nautanki. The only problem I feel is that the idea is not being exploited properly. I humbly request you guys to take a note of my suggestions. Nautanki has the power of overhauling Google Adsense too, just proper execution is necessary.
