Look at Don Draper – alpha as fudge. Makes ya wanna light one up afresh, aye? (maybe don’t) Anywhoms. Living the agency lifestyle, while low risk and low ROI, gets ye to learn the ins and outs of any particular niche/vertical/industry. Also, it’s scalable. But in a sense, spending other people’s benjamins sheds a _layer of tummy butterflies_. I’m talking about the butterflies ye get when you have to spend your own hard-earned gold purse. Especially at first. But then comes a time where ye realise that monthly retainer + 5-10% of ad spend is pennies compared to what you can bring in STM-style. Case in point: This guy’s coming over from the agency “lyfe” and wants to dip his toes into the land of plenty (AM): “I just finished running a multi ad platform (FB, IG, Search, display, YT, etc) ad agency where ran ads for business who sold courses, lead gen-email submits and ecom for other businesses.

🧙‍♂️1 Weird Trick STM Wizards Use to Combine Mad Data 📌My Sweet STM COVID-19

July 22, 2020

🧙‍♂️ 1 Weird Trick STM Wizards Use to Combine Mad Data Google sheet spells and incantations taste best when served by STM wizards. What’s this one then? Ye know how in Voluum you can only export data for the past 30 days? It stinks. Big time. But this STM wizard (@caravaggio) spent their mana making a mystical Google Sheet – it combines a number of jumbled up sheets into 1. Magically. Here’s how the spell works: 1. Go to yer tracker and select whatever data ye need for the past 30 days. Then select _placement (Zone ID), revenue, costs and conversions_. Export CSV. 2. Repeat step 1 for a different period. 3. Go to the Google Sheet Data Combiner and paste yer data into the ‘Data’ sheet -> gg. 4. Watch the magic happen and thank Yours Truly for hooking you up. But why make such a sheet tho? Here’s what the chief himself says: “The biggest problem with such 2 lists is that you have duplicated placements and different revenue / costs / conversions. What the sheet does is split data based on placement. So it finds placement (even if you have 2, 3 the same) and add revenue, costs and conversions.” Yer welcome. >> Click here to enter the portal to the Magic Google Sheet << My Sweet STM COVID-19 Aahh, the sweet smell of COVID-19 in the morning. 2020’s about to be one unforgettable year.

July 15, 2020

🏦 Affiliate-Friendly Bank Minus The Evil Bits? What’s this, ye ask? A bank for online marketers and ecom people? Copy-pasta below: “Most banks suck. They are slow. Massive fees for everything. Endless KYC. Slow sign up process. Cards have limits. Little or No Cashback. Most of them just offer the bare minimum service to customers and charge a whole lot for it. Not very nice. So what if there was a bank that could do more for you? _A bank that actually solves problems for you rather than create them_?

🎰These Sweepstakes Are Rigged With Conversion Armour 🎮iGaming affiliates – From SEO Affiliates to Sophisticated Media Buyers

July 08, 2020

These Sweepstakes Are Rigged With Conversion Armour Thread context: “I have tested sweeps when i just started my journey while following Amys 40 days guide, but quickly left that vertical as i couldn't seems to get it working successfully. I moved on to the finance vertical via push, specifically loans and been doing quite well with them. ...i decided to dig a little deeper into the offers themselves to find out why the fudge there are no conversions. _Using remote desktop to my sis computer (to ensure my cookies have no effect) i started testing each and every offer..._” Let me to summarize this guy’s findings: 1) SOI is not really SOI – Only 1 of 15 tested fired a conversion. 2) “Conversion armour” – 14 offers required the user go through the entire funnel (or led them astray) 3) The offers cheat because they didn’t fire a conversion even after winding through each and every miserable page. Is he onto somethin’ or is there more to the sweeps game than meets the affiliate eye? _Maybe_ yes. But also _no_. SOI means single opt-in – but ye still have to fill the entire form, you just don’t have to confirm yer email by the end. Affiliate networks scrub, yes – how else are they gonna snag margins, ey? Solution? Stick to direct advertisers (if the dollarydoo-flow allows), or legit networks. Also, our local sweeps-expert mod @stickupkid says this: “Keep an eye on your daily CR, lets say it's between 12-16% that seems quite "steady". But 2% - 10% is a big difference for example.” Ye’ll find the rest of the story in there. Anywhomz. That’s not even the best part of this thread. Nay!

🔥@jaybot’s Multidimensional $X,XXX/Week Success Story Newsletter Piece 🏆 The best ways to promote after lockdown from Leadbit

July 01, 2020

@jaybot’s Multidimensional $XXXX/Week Success Story Newsletter Piece Ye know what? Yours truly has successfully managed to bribe Lord @Jaybot to write his own success story piece in the newsletter. (For real) At this pace, the newsletter’s gonna write itself if yours truly manages to hand out enough bribes to innocent STMers on a weekly basis. Anywhomz. Yes, @jaybot wrote everything below. Yes, he’s a talented fellow, well-versed in the arts of dealing “digital cocaine” newsletters on the corners of STM and launching successful, highly engaging threads. He has that weird knack for writing. What’d it take to bribe @jaybot? Check by the end, ye might be surprised. wink wink Here goes, this is all @jaybot’s doing below: ----- He spends 336 hours a week on AM. He does so by having clones, robots, and/or living in several dimensions. He also f*ing swears a lot and has recently infected our innocent vortex into swearing _again_. “_You're really f---in' inspiring! I rarely use that word anymore but there's no other adequate way to express my sentiments._” This is undoubtedly because according to the legendary twinaxe: to be better at affiliate marketing, you have to be better than Jaybot and use: "_more swear words_." The epic journey of the '_Most Boring_' thread reveals the secrets of Time Being An Illusion and Affiliate Marketers with Time Machines (wtf? I want one!) But it's not all weird fun and games. Jaybot also dives into his stats to show some entertaining musings on how 4 conversions on a $30 CC Submit offer performs better than 2147(!) conversions of a $0.05 SOI offer. And. Whatever wacky shit Jaybot is doing, it seems to be _working_. His latest unique update: $1993 revenue last week. $488 of it being pure, sweet profit. Which of course, he will probably spend quality time "relaxing with hookers." But long-time STM vet, diplomat-senpai jumps in to tell Jaybot it's time to: "get rid of those rookie numbers _and get into _big boy numbers_." And then goes on to explain exactly _how to do that in the "Most Boring FA Thread You Will Ever Read... Guaranteed!" ----- End @jaybot’s piece *wipes tear* Lemme just say this. The man got @vortex to swear (!), all the while banking in dollarydoos. Talk about multidimensional talent. This entire thread is golden, it’s sprinkled in gold. Jump in and read his entire journey beginning-to-end and provide yer thanks, to everyone. P.S. As for the bribes – it took beers, burgers, “The Last STM Backpack In The World” and ugh…”womenz”. More details to come in the future, perhaps. >> As Jaybot would say, “click that sh*t now and get all the juicy details!” << 🏆 The best ways to promote after lockdown from Leadbit 🏆 The world turns into normal life, BUT the trends in affiliate marketing are still the SAME!

The “mainstream”, if ye may. _BREAD Pitt_ did just that, easily so. Ad spend? Rs 500 for 21 leads Papercashmoney? Rs 80,000 in a nice payout According to my math, that’s about a bajillion % ROI. Anywhoms, case in point? For any ‘_mainstream digital marketing peasant_’, what Bread Pitt did might feel like pure wicked dark magic. But for your _typical affiliate_? It’s like a primal instinct. Always looking for that angle. In fact, for most mainstreams this is one of the most common mistakes. What Bread Pitt did was he netted the juiciest, most highly targeted audiences while barely lifting a finger. >> Go ye here and borrow Bread Pitt’s wicked magic <<

Nor Donald. Nor that many banned FB accounts, The Zucc did not neet to suck on innocent advertisers’ souls to feed his insatiable lizard brain. But there are countless, priceless wise words that stand the test of time: The #1 huge-est mistake all affiliates make: action, not motion (i.e. lookie here: get shit done) Why you should not look for the “best” (cheapest) option when hiring employees Boundless wisdom from STM giants and 7-figure affiliates: Charles Ngo Legendary Mr. Green Mysterious @cmdeal The man, the myth, the legend – @stackman (“The mental note behind this is you're forcing luck.. you're forcing a big campaign by testing so much that it can't NOT work. Make sense?”) Sweet @polarbacon @kokofai Many, many more. >> Grab yer whips and toilet rolls, go ye here and roam the STM crypts << [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. Show Me Winning Campaigns Today [FOLLOW ALONG] “So, sorry Jaybot, my cat shit on your work.” _Y so confuse?_ Let me provide context and reading material from this marvel of a newbie follow along. Copy-pasta below: “I just joined a couple days ago and I've been devouring as much as the info and posts as I possibly can. Total goldmine here, guys. Well done The follow-alongs that are most on the mind are Jaybot's Boring Thread, which totally made me fall asleep. BECAUSE I just don't want to stop going through that Odyssey since it's LOADED with valuable info and I fell asleep reading and re-reading it. It seems to be the most recent and updated follow-along on here. I even printed out parts of it, annotated it, then shredded it to keep the sanctity of this awesome forum. Then, I used the shreds for my cat's litter box. Saving money wherever I can so I can burn it on affiliate marketing. _So, sorry Jaybot, my cat shit on your work._ I've gone through diplomat's Starting from the beginning one recently too, which had posts that I really resonated with. I'm personally at a point right now where I'm generating about $300 revenue daily, but I'm sitting at between $50 - $250 loss, daily. I have one offer right now that if I ran that, alone, would bring in $200 rev, ~$40-50, profit daily. Then the rest of the loss comes from testing new offers and attempting to scale, which so far has been a failure of a mission.“ Tell me, where else have ye seen a forum thread being printed, then shredded, then used as cat litter? For the sake of STM’s sanctity. How noble. Anyway, that’s beside the main point. In here we have a newbie feeling like this: But at the same time @bennimen is persistent with updates. Despite his “internal alarms” –  “Against all of my internal alarms, I keep spending”. Case in point? This is yet another common trait of winners. Ye must realise you’re spending on your education. Anyway, let me wrap up with a piece of @jack_l’s reply in there and leave you pondering: “...it can potentially let you earn more than doctors and lawyers who paid half a million dollars and years on end for their education” I rest my case. >> Now go ye here and subscribe to this follow along, you’re about to see a newbie bloom <<

Basically, title. 1 CPI offer. 3 Campaigns. 1 Propeller Push. 1 Ferrari F40. Does push traffic user activity mean surprising backend CPIs? Lookie here: “The Low Activity campaign has 14% of the revenue of the High Activity campaign. The Medium Activity campaign has 48% of the revenue of the High Activity campaign.” That be a massive difference indeed. Coincidence? Methinks not. Does correlation mean causation? Methinks yes.
