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

May 21, 2020

🎖️[$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? Great. Remember Lazy Neo’s unique ability to put a twist on yer campaigns (effortlessly so)? Amazeballs. 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. Quote: “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.” How? 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: Best part? @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. Bestest part? 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?

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.” >> Also, go check out this guy’s follow along - he’s onto something <<

💵 $2,385 Profit @ 98% ROI “Just Testing Revcontent’s Updates” 💰 Make Passive Income From Lifetime Commissions

May 13, 2020

💵 $2,385 Profit @ 98% ROI “Just Testing Revcontent’s Updates” A while back @jack_l (a now veteran STMer) banged his fist on the keyboard. Fed up with Revcontent’s faster than Cardi B can whisper “KARHANAVIRHUSSS” near-constant updates, this brave man took action. Lemme quote: “So as those of us who follow native ads know, Revcontent has made a lot of changes in the last 6 -9 months. First, they got rid of their “official” whitelist feature… Then they got rid of tons of their “low quality” publishers (which was a good thing certainly)… Then they got rid of their “Brand” targeting… Then- last week- they got rid of “Topic” targeting as well… meaning the only choices are now “Native”, “Push”, or “Adblock”… whereas before within the Native category you could choose “Health and Fitness”, “Conservative News”, “Liberal News”, etc…” And so he set off to seek answers. Results? ‘Ere ye go: (mega-yuge paste) Average Value Per Conversion: Approximately 44$ (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: $1,927.59 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) _Precious_. 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. >> Yours truly can only hook ye in with the numbers, for the rest is too precious to be let out into the wild – go ye here and read this right now << [SPONSORED] Make Passive Income From Lifetime Commissions Do you promote products and services to other digital marketers, or want to get started?

🦄Nooblet Hits $129.81/Day w/ Push 🎲Profit from Online Gaming During the Lockdown

First off, do you know what’s going to have the biggest ROI impact on yer campaigns? Wrong. 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. Wipes tear 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.” More: 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. wink wink (Thanks @jaybot) >> Clickie here and learn from a wise, evolving nooblet and put golden nuggets in yer tracker in the meantime << [SPONSORED] Don’t Let Cabin Fever Stop You From Making Money!

Typically, the first reply is: “More Money. And Hookers. 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.

Hear ye, hear ye! Outbrain hosts epic native webinar featuring our very own @Vortex plus other superstarz of the same calibre. Backstory: 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!

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” Yer welcome. “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.“ Yer welcome.

Zucc Sues Leadcloak ❌ CPA vs CPL for Gamblin’ Offers 🎲

April 15, 2020

Breaking News: Zucc Sues Leadcloak Whoops. Buckle up buckaroos. Big daddy angry Zucc just slapped the living hell out of Leadcloak. You might think he’s quenched his thirst. But no: 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? Quote: “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.

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. >> Go get the Ups, Downs and Expectations right here << Speaking of Breaking News: Entire $1 Guide Now Live on STM Yes, you read that right.

April 08, 2020

Spoilers plus birds-eye view of this interesting thead: Literally nobody (not-one-person on STM) likes doing their own accounting. Nobody likes to deal with landing pages Mr. Green gets angry “Outsource everything” Quoting Big Mr. Green straight up: “I'm doing some research around outsourcing in the affiliate industry . We all have that part of our affiliate work that we either hate, or we just aren't good at. In the past, there were always things I wanted to outsource, but I either had a bad experience hiring the wrong person, or I never got around to it because it just seemed like more work. So what would you want to be outsourced if you knew it wouldn't be a hassle?” Also, one frustrated full-time aff marketer asks where he could outsource some of his burdens. And then, later on, we get this curious reply by Mr. Green: _“I think I might have an amazing solution very soon..._ >> What is Mr. Green up to?? <<

GET IT WHILE IT LASTS (NSFV) Wild Boars Mauling Innocent Youtube Ads They know. My gawd, they know. NSFV - Not Safe For Vegetarians/Vegans, ye have been warned. The hyper-intelligent wild boars have sensed our ongoing quarantine and have begun to viciously attack and tear apart innocent Youtube ads. Mr. Lord of the boars, a.k.a. Mr. Wakeboarder, a.k.a. Tim, a.k.a. Mr. One of STM’s Best Follow Alongs Ever and his gang of rabid wild boars are back with a follow along. Quotes: “Long story short ... because of the COVID-19 we are expecting huge drop from this segment (offline retailers) so I decided to switch focused back to online sales.” “Why YouTube? I don't want to rely just on Facebook. Never. I have tons on highly-engaging wild boar hunting videos. When I crack it, I will use the knowledge to scale personalized products from the Scaleship project.” He’s already got 1, 1 minute video with about 100 quick orders already killing it on FB. Time to put it to the test on Youtubez. The good stuff: In-market targeting Cold, warm targeting Custom intent Detailed stats, consistent (and frequent updates) Screenshots Everything in between, as expected by the lord of the boars. But most of all: Insights ye won’t find anywhere else on the wild webz. Like, for example: How to maximize your chances of bringing in moolah ASAP with cold traffic (i.e. how to cut corners and grab insights before you even throw money at Uncle Google dancing on the pole) >> Go ye here, subscribe to the thread, and pray the wild boars don’t come after you << Tips on Dealing with the Covid-19 Situation and Beyond Basically, this is an absolute monster-massive of a thread, and basically, you have to go thank Amy ASAP. Seriously, it’s so huge (and so great) that I wouldn’t want to spoil a single word, minus a few: Baseline: Keepin’ yer biz afloat during these trying times includes: more audiences in yer back yard, clever-er angles, more pre-selling, yer own brand, yer own traffic and...there are too many to list. Niches most likely to survive (plus how to dominate them) How to not be like yours truly (pizzas, chips and beer), but actually thrive during quarantine with healthy, sane and productive tips. More: A snowball effect is in order - other members have jumped in with their own massive posts on what to do and how to navigate these rough recent waters. P.S. Plus, yet another uber-sneaky way to ensure your ads stay profitable even with heavily declining CPAs thanks to Mr. Lord of the Boars. >> Thank me later, then come back and tell me if you’ve been able to find better reading anywhere on the interwebz than on STM...just click here and go read this thread <<
