CRT Monitors & Affiliate Marketing in 2005 Thus, we once again seek to comprehend the deep dark depths of Lazy Neo’s wicked mind. Perhaps no one ever will, but we’ll keep on tryin’. And @twinaxe’s affiliate marketing origin story may yet reveal crumbs. It was 2005. 25 year-old Lazy Neo’s single thought at the time was–“parties”. Until a sudden decision altered the course of his life. “I made a big decision that should change my life forever.” One best friend, one 500 kilogram 19” retina-burning CRT monitor, one PC and one 6 Mbit internet connection later is how @twinaxe’s story unfolded. “In the end I paid €70 each month (€60 internet + €10 webhosting) for a forum that we only used to bullshit around in the internet. That didn't sound right for me so I decided to make some money online to pay for that stuff. I didn't know how to do it, I didn't know ANYTHING about affiliate marketing etc but I knew that I'll make it.” Torrents, that’s how it all started–a playground for music, movies and random shenanigans. Torrents led Neo to seeing ‘pop-up ads’ for the very first time. And that’s where it all began… 👉👉👉 I Know You’re Curious…Follow The Story Here

September 06, 2023

$45k In 1 Day By A Sexy Solid Snake Dad Bod Near You Remember this thread? Remember we were about to riot? Jaybot promised the numbers. He promised. And the juicy inner workings of his campaigns. So, my bag of crafty newsletter spells has just run out. I don’t know how to stop The Jaybot. Not anymore. He’s now used my own tricks against me…twice. The dad bod, the myth, the legend just pulled a $45k/day. And he won’t tell us what the ROI is. Not yet, at least. Look at this, I didn’t write this. He did. He’s mastered the art of the newsletter: “it’s been awhile since 4th grade so my math might be off but I think... (thanks to that tiny little $110 late conversion from Google)... that's around $45k IN ONE DAY Wew. Lad. Yeah yeah. Revenue schmevenue. Doesn't mean much if I paid $46k to get that, right? Well I didn't. I paid less than that. How much less? How's about this: SOLID SNAKE was a fantastic character in the Metal Gear Series and all of the games still hold up to this day. But we're not talking about video games... OR ARE WE?! In any case: Solid ROI. Won't say exactly how much because, you know, it's more mysterious that way. Plus. I'm pretty sure my kids and wife spent it all already. Inflation. And. Diapers are hella expensive. Will update the FA with some crazy details this week. Look forward to it.” I have one last ace up my sleeve, and that’s it–but I’ll save it for darker days. Yer welcome…I guess. I’m even forced to use an emoji: 😾 👉👉👉 Send Yer Thanks & Complaints In Here [SPONSORED] 3 Criteria For the Best Adult Dating Offers?

Why Landing Pages For Clickbank?

August 09, 2023

Why Landing Pages For Clickbank? Listen up: “In the past, we have only ran the typical ClickBank nutra offers (alpilean etc) where you needed a landing page in between your creatives and the offer VSL. We are now looking at other offers on other networks that don't have VSLs, and instead, just go straight to the product page (offers like ACV gummies, glucose gummies etc). With offers like this, do you like straight to the offer page or do you still have to have a landing page in between?” @reddragon’s on the right track. If yer Clickbank offer doesn’t have a VSL, what do ye do? For one, there’s a text sales page. These things convert nowhere near as well as a 50-minute brain-numbing, trance-inducing VSL. For two, straight to checkout. Yer money’s better spent buying lottery tickets…unless you make yer own VSL. Flick open this thread and inside ye see legendary STM mods explain why: You need a presell, what’s stopping 999 other affs from running the same stuff? Why direct linking will likely get you the banhammer. Even if yer ad angles stomp down geniuses like Gary Halbert or good old Schwartz…I can still rip you real quick. More, way more 👉👉👉 Dig In Here How to Make the Most Out of Affiliate Conferences? Hey folks, it’s affiliate summer-conference season - and we at Pushub want to help you make the most out of them!

But lead gen? Ye bet. But there’s a hurdle-The Zuck. “How are there so many people running redirect links on Facebook direct to the offer page? I have been in Ecom/DTC for 5 years and ended up getting into lead gen on Facebook, but we keep getting our ads rejected when trying to direct link to the offer page (I know FB does not like this). But there are SO many people in the ad library doing this. Is there a secret?” Zuckerberg does not like redirects. That’s a known fact. There’s a way sneaky STMers roll direct-linked lead gen on FB.

$2M/Year Media Buyer Turned STM Affiliate

August 01, 2023

$2M/Year Media Buyer Turned STM Affiliate This 27 year-old baller built a nice agency: “I'm 27. For the past 12 years i've been building a leadgen agency in France.” Juicy details are all inside, as per usual. And he scaled things up, too. “We currently spend 2M per year on Facebook Ads and Tiktok Ads alone…” Nowadays? @johnnyholidays wants to take over our precious little affiliate world. Pun somewhat intended. “I'm going to start my advertiser journey on youtube shorts and native advertising. From there on, i'm going to try programmatic and all the other traffic sources out there. At the end of this thread, i'd like my leadgen company to advertise on Social media, Google Ads (through youtube and why not display), and native.” Because why not? Ye don’t have to worry about clients. Contracts. Fulfilment. Customer support (praised be the affiliate gods). Inventory. Or headaches. All you have to do is one simple thing. Generate sales. And then collect big checks. Keep an eye out for this follow-along. 👉👉👉 Follow & Keep Yer Eyeballs Close To The Screen ALERT: This New Offer is About to Blow Up Every affiliate wants to know: How do you pick a winning offer? And more importantly: How to find it BEFORE everyone runs it into the ground? Some things to look for: 1)Pick a new offer (no saturation) - but NOT so new that nobody has run it 2)Offer has been tested by some affiliates, and showing great KPIs (eg. high EPC) 3)Has good scalability (eg. broad audience, multi-geo) 4)BONUS TIP: Look for new offers created by the maker of other wildly successful products. That last one is gold. For example, ever heard of Glucotrust? That top offer on ClickBank? The same creator has recently released a weight-loss product called Provaslim. Here are some stats from affiliates that are banking hard from first-mover’s advantage: -Average payout = $229.48 -EPC = $3.5-$5.0+ -World-wide traffic (with exceptions) + broad audience = SCALABILITY! -Refund rate < 4% This offer is already paying affiliates $10k+ / day! You can run Provaslim on YouTube, Google/Bing, Native, Social (such as FB), etc. Check out the highest-converting VSL: And the text sales page: / You know what else? The audience research and angle research has already been done for you. Check out these done-for-you ads and promo materials: You LITERALLY have everything you need to set up some campaigns TODAY. (Hit up your AM Carlos to get a pay bump: >> Get In BEFORE This Offer Blows Up! Ye Olde Native Mastermind Saint Jaybot started this bad boy back in ‘22. Yet there’s still interest. “Hey. After spending about $800k on Native I still have no clue how the fuck it works. Especially Taboola. And Outbrain. Revcontent is a bit easier. MGID is lol.” A year later, and there are like…a bajillion people in there. So hop in herself. ‘Tis a big native mastermind. 👉👉👉 Grab Yer Notebooks

8 Unignorable Copy Hooks to Cement Attention

July 26, 2023

8 Unignorable Copy Hooks to Cement Attention My headline > thread headline. Anywhoms. Did ye know we’ve got almost all AdWorld Pro speeches on STM? Right here and now. For f-r-e-e. Yes, completely, unquestionably free. Videos, text, presentations you name it. Maybe ye wanna write sick hooks, here’s a taste: Or maybe, you wanna dissect a $3 million dollar Facebook ad. In any case, methinks these speeches don’t get the love they deserve. So I come hunting for ‘thanks’. Yer welcome. 👉👉👉 Give Thanks Here & Absorb AdWorld ‘Zuckerbook Is The Most Frustrating Platform Ever’ 3 bans later and this man is furious. “This is the first time i need to vent about Facebook. To this day i have never ever experienced such a badly structured company as Facebook. And i have dealt with a lot of companies in the past online.” No one disagrees. “What happens? I get instantly blocked on FB for Payment Issues. I appeal the decision. It takes them 29 days (!!!) to get back to me and telling me they have re-enabled my account.” For what? A measly 0.29 cents. Twenty-nine cents. You mess up, yer out. - Zuck There are ways around this. Some may cost ye. Others may cost yer nerves. Either way, interesting read. 👉👉👉 Go Get Angry At The Zuck How Do ClickBank Offers Still Work? “Hey peeps, can someone please explain how people still ‘fall’ for these VSL offers on ClickBank? Like, just when we consider the fact that soooo many affiliates have pushed these offers at a huge scale. I imagine every American must have seen these VSL’s at some point. Obviously, offers change and new VSL’s are created. But they all promise the same 7 second rituals etc. This is a serious question. The reason I ask is because paid traffic really fascinates me, and ClickBank seems like a nice network. I just don’t understand how these offers continue to sell when affiliates push them HARD on every major platform - Facebook, Native, Google, YouTube, you name it…” Indeed. Facebook, Native & Google are flooded with CB offers. And countless sneaky affiliates. And yet…they work. They’ve always worked. Here’s why. Keyword: consumerism. Definition: “Consumerism is a concept that focuses on a social and economic arrangement where consumers do not hesitate to spend on things, which are not necessarily their basic requirements.” More: “The mid-18th century marked the beginning of the consumerism movement. People started spending more on material goods that were not really their need but only a lifestyle obsession.” One could say we’ve been swinging Acai Berry and health offers for about 2 centuries. Newspapers, word of mouth. Billboards. To now Zuckerbook. YouTube. Native. Salesletters to VSLs. It’s all the exact same %$@!. Different formats and mediums. And yet…they keep buying. And it ain’t slowing down either. In fact, it’s speeding up. They’ll never stop buying, and there’s a good reason why. STM legends shed some light in there. Ye might wanna take notes. Yer welcome. 👉👉👉 Seek Answers To Eternal Questions Here
