June 03, 2020
🌴Do You Want $100k "Summer" Washingtons?
Of course ye do. Who’d say no?
Listen, there are certain things that hold true in life.
_For one_, $100k Washingtons are not chump change in anybody’s dusty affiliate books.
_For two_, in the midst of a global pandemic, dystopian sci-fi-like riots...during a pandemic, STM’s humming along and purring like a kitten.
So is the entire AM industry.
It’s all a bit weird, no?
Ah yes, furthermore _for three_, the industry’s humming along so well that people are even giving away buckets of cash.
Basically, Fluent’s previous “March Madness” contest got...to say the least, banging results:
“Gold - $344,970 and 144% growth (@telesto job well done!)
Silver - $419,300 and 264% growth
Bronze - $173,933 and 2,227% growth
New Bucket - $105,284 and 100% growth”
Damn @telesto donate some coffee money to Yours Truly.
So they’re doing another contest.
Tell me, what better way to spend yer quarantine than winning an STM contest?
There be more, hol’ up:
This is $100k Washingtons total - so if yer one of our lazier affiliates ye still get to stuff green ones in yer pockets.
Case in point?
• Run date: June 2020 (June 1st – June 30th)
Details? In here.
Go get em tiger.
Also, yer welcome...

Native ads now even easier with Pushground [20% signup bonus]
Native Ads will account for 74% of US display ad revenue by 2021, according to an estimate by the business insider. That’s no surprise when you see that users (especially Gen X, Gen Z, and millennials pay 53% more attention to native ads compared to regular banner ads.
That is why Pushground has decided to launch this proven format. You can continue to scale your performance on the same trusted network with Push Ads, In-page Push, and now, Native ads.
To help you further here are a few secrets to success to running native and push ads.
Automatize! Using features like Pushground’s automatic rules, you can easily set up auto-optimization for all your campaigns saving you valuable time and allowing you to successfully manage more campaigns at once.
Copywrite: Use emotion to bring your ads to the next level. Test angles that are about the deeper reason behind your offer or product. Taking example a financial offer, don’t just write about the money you can save but instead about what you can do with that extra money.
Use predefined whitelists: Always test new campaigns on predefined whitelists before scaling. Pushground makes this easy by providing predefined “to start” whitelist and a “to scale” whitelist of their best performing placements by vertical.
High Bid Low Budget: Because of the competitiveness of the native market, you may not get the most valuable impressions if you start with too low of a bid. Always test new campaigns with above-average CPMs.
With the global COVID-19 situation starting to normalize and quarantines starting to end, take advantage of the current traffic prices to be ahead of the curve as businesses start to bounce back.
Don’t forget Pushground offers a 20% bonus to all new signups coming from STM.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of STM
“How I makeh money naw?”
Or, allow me to translate:
This is how you “become successful” on STM.
In a nutshell, this is a valuable lesson.
So listen carefully.
One we’d like to pass along to any nooblets out there, hiding in the damp shadows of STM, afraid to write a single word.
You want to be “The Good”.
Ye don’t want to be “The Bad”.
Ye definitely don’t want to be “The Ugly”.
If you’re going for “The Ugly” go on the Warriorforum or some such sad place.
(Shoutout to @jack_l for the newsletter material)
Or, the 3 types of affiliates:
Hey Matuloo/Vortex/Forum - excited to be on here this is great! My name is ______ and I'm from _____. My experience is in ______, _______, and ______.
I'm going to be focusing on _____ traffic source and am 100% determined to work hard and make it work!
I've been reading all the old threads on it and learned a ton!
I'm gonna start a follow-along but in the meantime, could anyone help me with this one confusing thing?
How do I ___________?
Thanks for all the help!
Hi Matauloo/Vortex/Forum - I am __________ how do I make big profit in affiliate marketing please help.
Hi Matuloo/Vortex/Forum - this is ________.
I need you to tell me 3 offers I can run where I can make a guaranteed 500$ a day profit.
My rep at XYZ Affiliate Network recommended this offer with a 45$ payout that he said was good - I spent 50$ running it and didn't make a SINGLE SALE. The affiliate rep was obviously scamming me. I told him to f*ck off! Am never using that network again!
And then my stupid traffic rep won't respond to my emails. My campaign overspent by $9.72 and I've sent her 10 emails demanding a refund and she still hasn't written back.
Plus they keep giving me crap about my bit.ly links - but how am I supposed to afford a tracker when their traffic isn't giving me any profits? I think that network is a scam.
Please send that list of offers that can give me guaranteed profits along with a list of what traffic networks to run them on and a blacklist and whitelist for each- broken down alphabetically- to email@example.com by 5 pm tonight.
(Here’s a prime example of “The Bad”, btw: https://stmforum.com/forum/showthread.php?48092)

Can The Zucc Gargle Your Spinal Fluid for Dessert? Charles Ngo Says Yep.
It’s no wonder FB accounts keep getting banned.
When you endorse your military pet shampoo by Miley Cyrus’ half-assed dog, without asking Miley Cyrus, Zucc gets to enjoy your spinal fluid.
Or - one STMer asks if you can get in trouble simply for being an affiliate?
“Can affiliate marketers be held accountable for the products they promote?
If a given product runs into legal issues and a user sues the product owner for any damages the product caused, can we as affiliates be held accountable for promoting the product?“
Well, what do you think?
Lookie what a surprise visit from an affiliate titan brought us.
Endorsed by Dr. Ngo:
John Chow has a judgement against him for $3.5 million for being an affiliate of MOBE. Other MOBE affiliates were sued as well.
Sandra Bullock and Ellen Degeneres sued 100+ different affiliate marketers for falsifying their endorsement of affiliate products
More affiliates being sued for being affiliates of health and beauty products”
But that’s entirely beside the main point of this here piece.
Oh no, my friend.
What this means is there’s one common culprit.
Many affilianados are responsible for this, in fact.
In fact, it’s everywhere, and everyone thinks they can just hum along, banking quietly.
I suggest and advise ye take a look inside to see what got John Chrow a $3.5 mil judgement so you don’t have to pay the same fines.
As per usual, @Matuloo clears this up right away.
>> Better safe than sorry… listen to Matuloo and Dr. Ngo, go here and see what you should NOT be doing <<
The Optimizer vs Voluum Automizer - Place Yer Bets
The Optimizer has been around for a looooong time.
So long, in fact, that everybody knows these guys.
A reliable, feature-dripping automation gadget ye want in yer back pocket at all times.
But then there’s Voluum Atomizer - a newcomer.
@Voluum rang @Jaybot and he revealed some comparisons between these 2 bad boys.

🇯🇵Have Ye Blasted Dating in Japanru or StarCraft Land? 💰Grab $500 of Bonus Traffic from EVADAV
May 27, 2020
🇯🇵Have Ye Blasted Dating in Japanru or StarCraft Land?
Can ye push dating in Japan or StarCraft land (S. Korea)?
Or are those tough nuts to crack? Word on the street says they are.
Confirmed by STM posts and legendary mods.
What’s the general consensus?
But lemme attempt to clarify despite the lack of clarity.
Before ye do any further reading – start the Eurobeat soundtrack in the background.
Regarding Japan, and I quote a _prominent STMer_:
“What I understood for Japan is that the new generation is not really interested in dating and sex, so that might explain why classic dating offers are not working.”
Yours truly’s take:
How do ye even know what yer future Japanese Waifu wants if she’s not into dating or sexy times?
Also, everyone knows that in order to ask for a Korean girl’s hand ye have to beat her father at StarCraft.
Case in point?
It’s all quite weird and different, and fun.
Also, to learn more go watch something like this French guy with a Japanese Waifu: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCeGEv5MBdmGMgZFPrAlEmFA
Also this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erxC8n37dUY
Listen, Korea and Japan are tough, but are they impossible to crack?
Do yer research, dig in and ye might be surprised.
1) Cultural differences - listen to Eurobeat and buy a Toyota AE86, play some StarCraft 2.
2) The older generations are not too tech-savvy - flip phones and blackberries are running wild, but the younger ones are full beast mode.
3) Translations unreliable, and no, these typical services, even the highly paid ones aren’t good enough. People are suspicious.
4) They’re a few years behind in many the West in many regards, dating is just catching up.
5) If yer gonna go adult, tickle yer inner tentacle-related creative ideas, if ye know what I mean. The weirdest stuff works.
On that note what I think ye should try is:
A) Something other than dating unless you want to go full Rule34
B) Dig in further into deep STM rabbit holes to uncover hidden clues, like these babies:
>> Hop in yer Toyota AE86, start Eurobeat, begin Kansei dorifto, open up a StarCraft stream and let yer inner creative tentacles go wild...Deja Vu here <<

The Great “Leadgen for Clients Dilemma” - CPA?!?
Do ye charge yer clients on a CPL basis (riskier) or should ye negotiate a meaty CPA instead?
Or was it a monthly retainer?
_Waaaaait a minute_...
*cringe* Client work instead of affiliate offers? On STM?!
Do I smell _responsibility_?
Do I smell _talking to human beings_?
Do I smell closing and sales negotiations besides the usual Chad-like conversations:
“Hey bro do you have any new sweeps offers in %insert-god-forsaken-GEO-here%? Thx”
“Ya here ye go bro”
“Thx bro let’s scale this shit!”
“fistbump” winkyface bro-hug”
Insert 20-second chat story with a happy ending here.
I digress – The Times They Are A-Changing
Lemme quote the OP:
“Currently I have 1 client on a monthly retainer, for whom I'm generating 20 leads/day…
Now, another client came up and we're meeting soon. He wants leads, and his niche is an ok fit. I'm not sure how should I charge for the lead-gen service.
Monthly retainer is cool, but if I sell the leads per piece/lot I can make more money, however, with higher risk. CPA?!”
Indeed, which is better?
One revelating reply would surprise ye - CPA, in certain industries COUGH CRYPTO COUGH, can net $800~ or so and the advertiser (client) can afford to pay ye in Lambos and Porsches instead of breadcrumbs on the floor. Given ye avoid using one style of lander (revealed inside).
Another golden tip is to always ask for a briefcase of Benjamins upfront - directly in their faces.
Also, have test periods – 1 month trial for $XXX, for example.
Also, @sitckupkid linked an entire guidecovering payment and charging methods.
Lemme just say this:
Client work ain’t scary and yours truly approves of this thread - _times are a-changin’_.
Zucc’s angrier than ever and wants yet accounts lcean, Ecom speeding across faster than Usain bolt can say his own name, agencies scaling beyond yer wettest dreams, people buildin’ brands...and the list goes on.
Listen, and trust me on this, there’s an entirely delicious world out there up for the swiping
Given yer sharp affiliate skills it’s fresh blood, easy prey – requires a bit more work but the payoffs can be just as yuge as that weight loss offer you spent 800 accounts on and got whiter hair.

That Went From Green to Red Real Fast - “I have a problem. A really, really, big problem.”
Re-read the title - Green to Red, not the other way around.
Somethin’ be horribly wrong with this guy’s push traffic blacklists for the past few months:
“I have a blacklist campaign that only converts on the first day but never converts on the following day. I still do not know what causes the performance down.
I haven't change anything except cut a bad creative. And the two working creatives still receive the major traffic on the following day.
Here is the screenshot for the blacklist campaign.”
The funny part is the whitelist campaign’s still chugging along and purring like a kitten.
One can see STM’s Chosen One (@twinaxe) jump in, but can he resolve this mystery?

🎖️[$1 Guide] STM Drill Instructor Choo-Choos in $XXX/month /w Easy Offers 🎲Launch Campaigns for Beginners with Leadbit Dating

🎖️[$1 Guide] STM Drill Instructor Choo-Choos in $XXX/month /w Easy Offers
Sometimes, many times, Neo a.k.a. @twinaxe a.k.a. STM’s drill instructor’s mysterious ways are beyond us all.
Remember the $1 guide?
Remember Lazy Neo’s unique ability to put a twist on yer campaigns (effortlessly so)?
Now how could STM’s drill instructor possibly spoon feed ye all again using them 2 unique qualities and products?
Here comes the choo choo:
“The Instructor” managed to weave together the $1 guide with a twist.
“Basically I wanted to check if it´s only good to make the first few $ with push subscription offers or if it could be worth to run it for higher profits as well.
I didn´t follow the guide exactly but took it as a base for my tests.
My test campaigns are no big money makers but for me it was more important to check if a beginner can make his first real online money with it or not.
For this task, these campaigns are really nice and every low profit campaign is still much better than a losing campaign.”
Push subscription offers, 35-40 of them - low payouts but super easy to convert, with a chill flow.
Smart CPA/CPA goals - name me one person who doesn’t like having slave-robots doing all the work for ye?
Initial results for RU:
Post-optimization + more GEOs:
@jaybot jumping in and gasp starts yelling at the drill instructor because he and many others didn’t get the main idea – which offers, where do you find them,”plz send halp”, et cetera.
Even more results:
Drill instructor jumps in and clarifies everything so that yer 2-year-old cat can easily run this stuff.
This thread is meaty - it’s dripping with delicious info-juice, down to all the replies.
>> Go ye here and listen to yer drill instructor - copy-paste some ideas and off ye go to $XXX/month <<
[SPONSORED] The Simplest Way to Launch Campaigns For Beginners in Leadbit Dating
Dating is one of the most popular verticals now. Many newbies hope to pass moderation easily, but moderators often reject campaigns. How to avoid this?
Take the mainstream offers in Leadbit.com. #Importantfact: there are adult blocks on non-targeted GEO offers for most mainstream offers. Ask the manager which offer is suitable for all GEOs to be 100% confident in the passage of moderation.
First of all, we recommend DATEHIKER - an offer with payment $3.6 for an unconfirmed registration.
What is the advantage? You will be able to easily pass the big boss - the moderator and get leads from any GEO.
Leadbit has offers on every taste:
Want to promote SMARTLINK? We have it for you: WW and CIS!
Or maybe games? Try this one! WORLD OF WARSHIPS | WEB GAMING SOI | WW
Leadbit Dating is an international CPA-network working with dating offers on the best terms from Leadbit. Leadbit is an international multi-vertical affiliate network.

STMers are the Boxers of the Internet World
A quick (but lengthy) one, worth yer short attention spans.
One STM newbie is completely oblivious to the fact that they can write copy better than yer average scumbag affiliate, observe and drop yer jaw.
If long walls of text are scary, TL;DR below in bold:
“Let me just say that I have an incredible amount of respect for anyone that's figured this out, and especially those of you that have gone it alone and are now writing posts to help others. There is an overwhelming amount of information to absorb, and I salute those of you that have gone before me.
It reminds me a bit of when I first started boxing. Having been in the Marine Corps and practiced martial arts as well as weight lifting for years, I considered myself to be in great physical condition. After a few months of hitting the bag and training with mitts, my boxing coach threw me in the ring for 3 rounds of sparring. After two rounds I was dead, and I spent the third round playing defense, grappling with my opponent so that he couldn't hit me. At the end of the match I couldn't keep my hands up and I took a clean shot to the temple, which was thankfully absorbed by the headgear I was wearing. The only time I had ever felt so tired was after a 12 mile hike with a full load during combat training down in Camp Pendleton.
Leaning against the ropes in the corner of the ring, sweat pouring off of my face, I couldn't believe that professional fighters go for 12 and 15 round bouts. It was at that time that I realized a newfound admiration for these guys that get in the ring and get punished for upwards of 45 minutes.
You guys are the boxers of the internet/sales world. This stuff is simply incredible.”

💵 $2,385 Profit @ 98% ROI “Just Testing Revcontent’s Updates” 💰 Make Passive Income From Lifetime Commissions
May 13, 2020
💵 $2,385 Profit @ 98% ROI “Just Testing Revcontent’s Updates”
A while back @jack_l (a now veteran STMer) banged his fist on the keyboard.
Fed up with Revcontent’s faster than Cardi B can whisper “KARHANAVIRHUSSS” near-constant updates, this brave man took action.
“So as those of us who follow native ads know, Revcontent has made a lot of changes in the last 6 -9 months.
First, they got rid of their “official” whitelist feature…
Then they got rid of tons of their “low quality” publishers (which was a good thing certainly)…
Then they got rid of their “Brand” targeting…
Then- last week- they got rid of “Topic” targeting as well… meaning the only choices are now “Native”, “Push”, or “Adblock”… whereas before within the Native category you could choose “Health and Fitness”, “Conservative News”, “Liberal News”, etc…”
And so he set off to seek answers.
‘Ere ye go:
Average Value Per Conversion: Approximately 44$ (it depends what % of expected returns are factored in) – this is actually higher than the figure of 40$ I have been using as an estimate on the daily tracking, so that is good.
Total Spent So Far: $5200.41
Total Revenue: $7,128.00$ (actually slighter higher but again, factoring in expected returns)
Profit Margin: 37%
Total Spend Of “Whitelist Widgets”: $2,412.13
Total Revenue Of “Whitelist Widgets”: Approximately 4800$
Profit: Approximately 2,385$
Profit Margin: Approximately 98%
Total Spend Of Run Of Network Widgets: $2,788.48$
Total Revenue Of Run Of Network Widgets: Approximately 2300$.
Profit: Approximately -390$
Profit Margin: Approximately -17.5%
Case in point?
It still works, but:
It’s not the results, it’s the revelations, son. (all the way to page 2)
P.S. Jack’s using The Optimizer (who are also resident STMers), and they joined and threw in even more prophecies ye wouldn’t even get out of their CEO.

“every time i re-read this thread i get an epiphany. 10/10 would read again. think bigger, simpler, and faster”
Don't be afraid to trade NET$ for SCALE. One thing that really helped increase profit for me in the past, was actually focusing less on target profit goals. I set goals on spend and scale instead of NET.”
“The secret to real wealth is creating an asset which is worth a MULTIPLE of the earnings it generates.“

🦄Nooblet Hits $129.81/Day w/ Push 🎲Profit from Online Gaming During the Lockdown
May 06, 2020
🦄Nooblet Hits $129.81/day /w Push Then Evolves
_Well_, _well_, _well_, _well_, _well_.
Evolution right before yer very affiliate eyes.
Live. On STM.
Just peeky-lookie below:
Few reds, many greens, and a $126.98 day.
Now, this is beside the main point of this here follow along.
‘Cuz this guy’s snatching up some priceless nuggets as he moves across fields of lush push traffic sources.
Revelations of sorts, if ye may.
First off, do you know what’s going to have the biggest ROI impact on yer campaigns?
It’s mindset. (pick a few STM success stories at random and come back ‘ere, ye’ll see a pattern forming)
Quote from follow along:
"I can make it work. I picked this offer properly. It must work". Right now I don't want to be right, I just want to make money Your ego could be the bitch."
He’s starting to walk.
The Second Revelation:
“Optimize my ads for CTR. I realized it after this post by fjk87 and after twinaxe's presentation where he showed what kind of creatives he uses. If you read this, thanks guys.”
Twinaxe jumps in and follows up with this:
“The trick with creatives is to find a good compromise between high CTR and being related enough to the offer.”
“A very high CTR doesn´t help when it´s completely unrelated to the LP/offer, a very targeted and specific creative doesn´t help when the CTR then sucks.”
P.S. There’s a barely noticeable reply ye’d miss if it weren’t for yours truly.
It’s about a specific traffic source, a specific objective, and a specific offer type, that works on specific devices.
Ye’d never find such advice anywhere in the wild, that’s fo sho.

New FA: Affiliate Digs Deep Moat -- Expects Moolah from WH FB
This STMer got tired of the one-man-show agency “lyfe”.
It got “too demanding for my taste”.
Ah, don’t we love crystal clear signs of a future affiliate?
Long story shortened:
Friend of his makes a beauty product.
Friend thinks doing IM is as easy as “camps go brrrrr…”
Friend runs out of money, panics and then pings @youreadthis.
Has direct access to the site.
The product is good.
They don’t have any sales or promos running right now.
Funnels have been redesigned.
Nobody else is pushing this.
Product: Beauty skin care product, 0 experience in the niche
Geo: Local, small country
Tracker: FB reporting / pixel
Ads Channel: FB /my best/ + IG /I don't even have account there yet..
Test budget: €500-550 ads + up to €100 deployment
“I'm creating this FA with the goal of sharing a little different kind of affiliate experience. Also, to my great surprise, I'm learning A LOT of new stuff here, and it'd be nice to be a bit more active, and share the results I get from different methods and tricks learned here. I will post more as soon as we launch some campaigns, stay tuned!”
Yours truly has subbed and is waiting impatiently.
>> Go ye here and sub ASAP, ‘tis a sweet deal this guy got. Is it gonna work? <<
“What's preventing you from living YOUR best life ever?”
Sweet behbeh jeezzus. (source, praise be to Jeremy Clarkson)
That’s one of those deep, thought-provoking threads.
Typically, the first reply is:
But mostly money
That's it really. The rest of my life is pretty good.”
Some people, though, have simpler ambitions.
Such as* more sun* (ironic, coronavirus is giggling like a little girl).
A nice dinner with lots of friends.
Lazy Neo’s reply is...nothing. He’s livin’ the life.
A tip from The Chosen One himself: “Work towards happiness and not towards maximum money.”
Other replies are a tad bit more direct: corona. (don’t forget to inject yer nightly dose of Cardi B before bed as prescribed by Dr. Yours Truly)

[WEBINAR] - Outbrain Offers Unfair Advantage to STMers - Shy Vortex Invited to Speak 😍 STM’s Newsletter Bros - Over 12k Marketers Trust This
April 30, 2020
[WEBINAR] - Outbrain Offers Unfair Advantage to STMers - Shy Vortex Invited to Speak
Name me a better way to spend a quarantine day than to watch and learn from marketing wavemakers?
Hear ye, hear ye!
Outbrain hosts epic native webinar featuring our very own @Vortex plus other superstarz of the same calibre.
Big brandz have folded their tales and stopped throwing their money at the wind, as they usually do, because they’re scared.
‘Tis a scary beast this virus.
Here’s the table flip:
Us affiliate dogs like making dollarydoos on top of our spent dollarydoos, unlike brands.
And we’re extremely good at this. (your average half-drunk, lazy STM affiliate can run circles ‘round most “agencies”)
It’s growth turned survival for brands.
It’s COVID meets opportunity for affiliates.
But Outbrain, in stark contrast, noticed that in spite of the changing economy, affilienados were still running profitable ships.
“But what’s it mean??”
A few things:
1) Traffic prices are down.
2) Outbrain’s merging with Taboola - which means even more traffic for us greedy but resilient affiliate creatures, on the cheapo too. That is if the merger goes through.
3) Outbrain’s reps are prepared to provide help to an influx of affiliates!
The Plus) Amy typically declines 95% of requests for interviews or public speaking, but this time yours-truly suggests ye tune in and listen closely.
Because Amy’s doing this for all of ye native noobaroos.
While everyone scours in fear tucking ad budgets back in their pants, affiliate grins get ever wider.
Some are even showing their native teeth, ready to pounce.
>> Interesting times ahead, go ye here and sink yer teeth in the Outbrain webinar ASAP <<

STM Lifts Veil of Ad Mystery for Math Teacher - Is this STM’s Future Heisenberg??
You’re goddam right.
This math teacher started their journey with the $1 guide.
And is breezing through every expected hurdle.
Yours truly can already tell this is a piece of cake for someone well versed in numbers.
Unlike laying on the kitchen counter at 4:40am trying to decipher simple affiliate stats - while sipping a warm beer in yer underwear (specific, yes, but I decline to comment further) - this guy will never, ever face similar setbacks.
“It's truly like a veil has been lifted and I now understand what's going on with what happens online”
“Re: the 40-day guide. I must say it's something of a masterpiece. I'm bingeing it the same way my ex used to binge godawful reality tv shows.“
As one STMer put it: Is being a "math teacher" the STM/IM counterpart of being "Walter White"?
P.S. Completely off-topic, but yours truly has a cure for COVID-19-induced stress and anxiety, here’s what you should do:
Step 1) Save this precious video
Step 2) Watch this video religiously every night before going to bed
This video was sponsored by the World Health Organisation
P.S.S. The comments, specifically thank you to “Mozart 420”:
Now you can take a sip of hand sanitizer and sleep soundly.
>> Go follow STM’s Heisenberg in the making, clickie clickie <<
Did Ye Meet Mr. Green’s New Best Friend? iStack Labs.
Affiliate needs are so specific that most don’t ever bother hiring or outsourcing their work anywhere.
How do ye even get backup for design work, tech support, copywriting, finance and media buying from someone completely oblivious to direct response?
I smell headaches.
Until Mr. Green waltzed in and introduced his best buddy:
A fully-fledged agency for affiliates.
Let me repeat: a fully-fledged agency for affiliates.
You see, what makes this even better is it’s coming from the industry’s greatest heavyweights and founders of STM, iStack, AW and so many other successful businesses.
Media buying, landers, emailz, custom funnels, CRO -- frankly, the list is way too big.
What this means is you never have to babysit anyone, ever.
These guys have done it all on a massive scale.
They’re gonna keep doing it now, for you.

(split in two because...Amy. They truly are _ginormous_)
So huge, in fact, that if it weren’t for STM and Amy, yours truly’s inner-scumbag would repackage these, slap a nice cover on ‘em and sell them to you for at least a few hundred dollarydoos _each_.

Basic targeting options (with screenshots and clear red arrows)

Plus angle and targeting ideas ye wouldn’t be able to muster up even if yer on STM-shrooms (strong shrooms these are, but more on that in the future).

Zucc Sues Leadcloak ❌ CPA vs CPL for Gamblin’ Offers 🎲
April 15, 2020
Breaking News: Zucc Sues Leadcloak
Buckle up buckaroos.
Big daddy angry Zucc just slapped the living hell out of Leadcloak.
You might think he’s quenched his thirst.
On he goes chasing their customers.
More from Bloomberg:
"Facebook Inc. sued the founder of a software company for running deceptive advertisements on its social-media platforms, including links to investment scams and bogus information about the coronavirus pandemic.
Basant Gajjar’s “LeadCloak” software, designed to circumvent automated review systems in Facebook and Instagram, baits users into clicking on links that are unrelated to the ad, according to the lawsuit filed Thursday in California.”
Even more (Facebook speaking):
“In addition to today’s filing, we have taken technical enforcement measures against Leadcloak and accounts that we’ve determined have used their software, including disabling personal and ad accounts on Facebook and Instagram.This suit will also further our efforts to identify Leadcloak’s customers and take additional enforcement actions against them.”
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
The dawn of black hats and seemingly-mysterious cheeseburger chomping hooded individuals gaming the system has begun.
But, honestly, as one man and his famous balls ask - is anybody even surprised?
“Most ticking time bombs tend to be rather cosy to sit on... until one day your balls are detached in different zipcodes.”
In other words, the odds of your balls remaining close by are infinitely higher if you tend to sit on whitehat eCommerce offers and clean ad accounts instead. (for example)
Or a myriad of other options.
Maybe the quadruple-digit ROIs won’t make you wipe drools off yer keyboard, but does that really matter when ye can scale as much as yer greedy heart desires simply using clean offers and products?
All the while pleasing the Zucc and Uncle Google.
Food for thought.
>> Better yet, go ye here and join the discussion <<
CPA vs CPL for Gamblin’ Offers? Place Yer Bets ‘Cause You’d Be Shocked
We all know that pushing CPL offers is not only deliciously profitable but (for the most part) quite easy too.
Well, _shiver me whiskers_, but have ye thought about the downsides of pushing leads, especially so gamblin’ leads?
For one, you’d see your affiliate manager pinging you in a rush, telling you to pause traffic ASAP if your leads have a poor conversion rate and are not backing out for the advertiser.
For two, you’re either not getting paid or you’ll have to switch GEOs ASAP, or bounce off the offer. I.e. Traffic control sucks and can last up to 30 days.
For three, your lead quality may be affected by delayed post-click conversions. Yeah, that one’s a pain.
The Shockeroo - CPA/CPS offers can actually get tasty
Ye don’t have to worry about “lead quality”. A sale is a sale.
The advertiser can’t tell you your traffic isn’t converting, because it’s bringing in paper.
Lifetime cookies mean you can get benjamins coming in even after a year.
Oh, and by the way, our friends over at Leadbit Gambling are basically the go-to experts when it comes to gamblin’ offers (it’s in the name!).
The best part?
They go into great detail showing you how to push this $70 offer and get cuh-razy conversion rates. (Down to creatives, targeting and bidding)
Basically, go check this piece to get a detailed big picture and see how these offers should be pushed and thank me later
We wouldn’t be telling you about any of this if we didn’t know these guys.
Leadbit Gambling is one of the leading CPA networks with a team of professionals that has a unique strategy and their own apps for offers.
Be sure to ping these guys and tell them STM sent you - they’d be happy to provide further insights and help you out.

COVID-19 vs Push Traffic - Round 1
First off, thanks to everyone on the frontlines, our true heroes.
Second, there’s not one thing the virus hasn’t affected on a global scale.
Push traffic ain’t no exception.
Lemme quote @pushground’s intro:
“In the last few months, our world has been dismantled but the COVID-19 outbreak with most of the world being put on lockdown to stop its spread. We, in Barcelona, have been in lockdown for a month now while for others It is just starting, but there is some light at the end of the tunnel with China starting to return to normal life as lockdowns get lifted.
As marketers, we are all wondering what effect this will have on the market and what effect it will have on our campaigns. To help answer your questions we have provided some traffic insights on how COVID-19 and this global lockdown have affected Push.”
P.S. Quite curious that a vertical such as that one might go down but here we are. You’ll be surprised when you see it too.
