Affiliate Marketing Lessons – How to Fish 🎣

Multiple mods and members explaining in detail and teaching newbies ‘how to fish’. Burning questions get answered, such as: At what point do you stop testing and start focusing on a winner? Should you rip landers from Adplexity?

Make $x.xxx/Month With $3/Day campaigns

October 07, 2020

Make $x.xxx/Month With $3/Day campaigns @twinaxe launched these beginner series to show you how to build-up your first stable profits without losing too much and moving forward in small (but steady) steps. Here’s the gist of the guide: “I´d like to tell you a bit about good approaches that are not too complicated so that they can also be implemented by beginners about how to start, make first profits and the use all the stuff you learn along the way to scale the profits. It´s not about specific campaigns or so, it´s rather about things like: Smart planning Competitive advantage as a newbie Bulding a winning mentality to keep you hungry Working towards success not failure Thinking longterm” A good way to have more ‘yay’ than ‘nay’ moments, @twinaxe advises, is to break your big goal into several small goals. Like aiming for $3/day campaigns. Build those mini-campaigns up and you can get to $1350/month, easily covering your AM expenses. >> See the entire work plan right here, go go go << [SPONSORED] Turn Your Landers into Cash Cows Hey there!

Long reply: (see inside)” @jaybot: “Analysis paralysis. If you’re that experienced, you’ll be sorta successful no matter what you pick first. So just choose randomly. You’ll get more feedback in a follow along on push/pops/native/FB if you start running some actual camps and have a FA for people to give advice on.

(Science) Focus on building online sales/copy-writing skills - to refine and iterate instead of just ripping and running, not reinventing the wheel, but making it go faster. (Propaganda) Being as aggressive as possible, aiming to get around 10% of campaigns disapproved by traffic sources, avoiding bans of course - no cloaking. (Aggression) When profitable campaigns appear to scale them as hard and fast as possible profitably. Avoid complacency (Magnitude) The core tenets so far (short for “SPAM”) seem to be producing $XX/day profits, see below: >> Read the full thread here <<

College Student Receives Affiliate Wrist-Slapping This college newbie started things off rather well: “If you're a College student, or was; how do you maintain/maintained a balance between studying and affiliate marketing?” A great question. Here’s another follow-up: “Wow, that's amazing! How much money did you have when you first started with AM? Would you say that a $300 a month is enough to start AM?” He then gets the golden goose number when starting AM - about 5,000 Washingtons. Just about right. Just about confirmed by every veteran STMer (in this thread). But then the college newbie took a sudden sharp turn and his bike slipped badly: “5000 is way too much to start. There’s literally a $1 guide here on the forum.“ Lying on the ground, poor college newbie started getting some serious wrist-slaps. So is $5,000 too much? Is it not? Is it “over the course of your nooblet life”? Or is there something else entirely at play here. Ye shall see inside. But here’s Yours Truly’s take: This is a classic case of confirmation bias. Here’s what that means: “the tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one's existing beliefs or theories.” This distorts evidence-based decision making. It’s bad. In a nutshell, college newbie decided $5,000 is bad and that $300 is good and off he went confirming it for himself. To further stretch out the tangent - go read Ray Dalio’s Principles: Life & Work.

Here’s a taste of His writings: “I would like to make a series of posts for beginners that hopefully help to get a better and easier start and that also shall clarify some stuff. It´s not necessarily about specific offer verticals or traffic types or so. It shall be a rather general guideline to help to form a good and winning overall mindset and to develop a better understanding about affiliate marketing in general. Probably one of the biggest motivations to start affiliate marketing is the money that you can earn so this is what this first post is about. Often rather sooner than later the reality kicks in and people realize that affiliate marketing is no free ride to wealth and fortune.” This post be long. I recommend ye read it all at least twice. Pay attention, and be realistic. Specifically, here’s an analogy: “Well, making 5 figures a month sounds fantastic but I recommend to rather make a plan that matches your personal situation. $10k in Canada is completely different than $10k in Bolivia. Also make a difference between what you want and what you need.“ >> What do you need and what do you want? Get answers in here <<

🐗Wild Boars Invade Snapchat for Q4 🤑One Trick to Finding Profitable Campaigns

August 26, 2020

🐗Wild Boars Invade Snapchat for Q4 Praised be the corona gods!  The wild boars return with a shiny new follow along. Invasion target? A relentless assault on innocent Snapchat. Mr. @wakeboarder, a.k.a. Tim, a.k.a. Lord of the Boars declares full-on war on Shapchat pre Q4. Why Snapchat? The wild boars have been preparing for war since January - a Snapchat pixel has been collecting sweet data ever since. Plus eerily similar demographics (see for yerself) France is the #2 huge-est Snapchat TS - 20mil. The wild boars have hired a deadly media buyer to handle The Zucc. Facebook be stable. Therefore the Wild Boar King sets his sights on conquering Snapchat before the Q4 madness arrives (they expect 600+ orders/day by that time) As per usual, The Wild Boar King’s follow along is top of the class. Crystal clear goals and religious updates. Ye heard about the invasion goals. What’s the initial plan, then? P.S. If ye don’t sub to the follow along Yours Truly shall be waiting under yer bed tonight. >> Yer gonna have to go check inside yerself << [SPONSORED] One Trick to Finding Profitable Campaigns Ever wonder why so many affiliates never reach consistent profits? To hit on a winning campaign, you need to test 4 things: Offers, Ads, Landing Pages, and Traffic Sources. Test enough combinations and you’ll find winners. Sounds simple - until you look at the math. Example: 4 Offers x 10 Ads x 5 Landing Pages = 200 combinations to test (And this is assuming the traffic is decent.) The scary thing? Even if you test all 200 combinations, you may not find a winner. Pro affiliates take a different approach: They do research to narrow things down first. And many of them rely on one particular data intelligence tool. Top affiliates use this tool to cherry-pick the most-recent campaigns, that have been receiving lots of traffic over at least a few days… Which means they have a good chance of being winners. Then the pros would test, tweak and optimize based on these campaigns. This way, there are WAY fewer combinations to test, and the success rate is MUCH higher. The tool is Adplexity, and here’s why it’s the best: Shows you entire campaigns: Ads, offers (& affiliate networks), landing pages, traffic sources, placements, etc. Tons of great reviews from users (google to find). The biggest and most-accurate database of campaigns, bar none. Intuitive user interface, easy to use. Covers: Native, Push, Pop, Display, Adult, and In-App traffic. Covers many traffic networks: AdCash, Taboola, PropellerAds, Exoclick + dozens more. The Good News: Adplexity is offering a 30% LIFETIME discount to our subscribers. Adplexity 30%-Off Lifetime Discount Think: How difficult it would be to compete with affiliates that ARE using Adplexity, when you’re not. You can’t afford NOT to get this tool.
