Flappybird is gone but some smarty made money off it!!

So Flappybird is a part of history now as it was top news on internet and almost every blogger wrote about it in order to take benefit from this , How many of them succeeded this can be answered by bloggers themselves, How ever i can tell you about a smart guy with flippa user name jamieklaz easily made $6,760 by creating domain flappybirds.com.  According to his comments at his listing on Flippa he claims to have 30,000 visiting in last two days as his website was also featured in news websites like Fox news etc .

Here is another screenshot domain owner telling about the traffic.

The most interesting thing is that this website was not even properly developed and domain was purchased on 2014-01-30 as per whois records  so $6,760 was the only price for the domain. Seller must be thanking Nguyen for providing him opportunity to make some easy money .

Update :

From Tshirts , Phones to drawings everyone is selling FlappyBird products. Ebay is gone crazy

{video tutorial}How to create sucessful campaigns with the help of box of ads

My today`s tutorial is about creating successful PPV campaigns using box of ads , A PPV Spy tool i have already reviewed on on blog and also did interview with its owner Luke . Most of people ask me how to get ideas for creating landing pages and also to find good targets in my opinion this is a must have tool which i can say is  answer to all your questions, Do check out this video and also if you need discount for box of ads check this page .

Do let me know about your feedback by commenting below ..

How Amazon Marketed itself through one simple video

I hope you have watched the Amazon Prime Air about Amazons plans to introduce drones to deliver stuff at your door steps. This video was widely discussed on  almost every news website and video went viral all over the world , Facebook , twitter everyone was talking about it , And it also made place on all top news websites and ended up getting 12,501,294 over all views views and 10,878 comments alone on YouTube.

When others are thinking about how amazing the technology is, imagining drones  delivering stuff at their door steps. I am thinking about the genius marketing team at Amazon . Who introduced this video at a perfect timing when its just beginning of  shopping season and people have their credit cards in their hands to start shopping and buy stuff for Christmas.

This is a perfect example of out of the box ideas , You dont need to spend millions on promoting and advertising your product instead just one simple video can get you millions of traffic and can get you featured on news channels all over the world.  No matter Amazon is able to implement this concept as there are going to be many legal problems , But Amazon has achieved its target by releasing this amazing video  .

At the end i`d let you watch it once again.

Using PPV Traffic to promote Pay Per Calls Case study.

Hey guys a few days ago  i watched a video by Ring Partner Network about pay per calls where they have uploaded a video about Call Treatments. Basically it is a IVR system where you Pre qualify or pre sell your callers and lead them to a suitable offer. Lets say i advertise about loans, and i get calls from people looking for different types of loans, some will need auto loans. Some will need business, in same the way others payday loans etc etc, so using this Call Treatment feature i can actually send them to their related respective offers , For example on i will use IVR which will send them to the related loan offers ,IVR will ask those people who are looking for payday loans to press 1 (once they press 1 they will  be then connected to another pay per call offer related to the payday loans) , For people looking for health insurance it will ask them to press 2 and they will be directed to the specific offer and at the end if a visitor is not interested at all it will ask them to hang up .

Here is the video for better explanation .

 

My experience

I tried to find this feature on other CPA Networks but there was no option to request this feature so i signed up at Ring Partner and requested that feature from them .. You can signup to Ring Partner here.

I picked up a existing campaign i was promoting on PPV with already tested targets and used a very simple landing page. Here is  an example of what the landing page was like

ppv paypercall case study

click to enlarge

Network : Ring Partner

Amount Spent :  $13.29

Amount Earned :$19.20

Net Profit              :$5.91

Result :

This was a small test and results are pretty impressive, however there is a huge problem , you can track a landing page but you cannot track a call as people will see the number on their computer screen (we are using ppv traffic) and pickup their land line/mobile phone and make a call  as we cannot track whole process. That can be a big trouble when testing out new targets as we wont know which keyword is sending calls.  I would appreciate if any one can help out with this tracking problem.

How?What?When?Where?Why? Who? Profile

Hey there!

My aim and mission of this post is to create discussion! I want to get some feedback and create a case study to display how many different paths we have and how many different methods people used to get into IM, but I don’t want the usual two word answers; “the money”, “the freedom” , “Suggested by so and so”, “Google”

I want to hear some proper feedback about How you got into IM, What brought you here, When you got into IM, Where you want to go in the future, Why you chose IM and somebody who inspires you or you look upto in the industry. You don’t have to write me an essay or a 10 page booklet butmaybe a paragraph for each section. You can comment on the post or E-mail it to us via our “contact us” page, it’s upto you!

 

So here is my little profile:

HOW

I got into IM almost 2 years ago via freelancing. I was a writer for sites such as iWritter, I published a few kindle books, I did a few from Warrior Forum and Fiver. I got into the CPA and Affiliate marketing side when I met KJ. He told me he had been playing around in the industry for almost a year and I was intrigued to see what it was all about and how he does it. So we had a few coaching sessions and I shadowed hi ma few times, then I got hooked, I found peace in having the freedom to work when I wanted, to almost own my own work life. So I started affiliate marketing later that very year (2010). So I guess I got into the industry through Mr KjRocker himself.

WHEN

I started serious IM in early 2011, I started signing up with networks and taking affiliate marketing seriously, I started shadowing KJ more and such stuff. My writing skills really helped in going from just freelancing to affiliate marketing, I have always had a passion for writing since I was a child and now earning and doing it on a daily basis is something I enjoy because it allows me to expand my knowledge.

WHERE 

In the future I hope to work in the psychology field, but keeping IM as a back up plan, I know many IMers who do it full time, I admire their patience and dedication, and although I posses those skills, I want to explore things more. However IM is something that I can see myself doing as a hobby in the future, the social side, skills development and the vast experience and opportunities it gives is something that one should never let go off.

 

So thats a VAGUE-SIH profile from me…

 

Now let’s get some proper feedback from you guys!! I will be running a feature on this topic soon….. SO KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR YOUR PROFILES!

Fail Saturday-LibreOffice

Today’s post is about Libre Office office from Never Blue Network which i ran on PPV Network .

Offer : Libre Office is a  free, open source, office suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more! Offer converts when user downloads software. paying  $ 1.40 per lead .

Landing page preview : favdownloads . com/download/Utilities/Utility/LibreOffice

So why i picked  LibreOffice ? All of us do love to save money, Now matter by what means and how much,We just do is our natures, in our daily life we are always looking for discount coupons when ever we are buying something  our first priority is to find a discount coupon or something no matter it saves us a few bucks or hundreds of bucks , Basically its out nature that we want to spend less and get more , Let me give you an example , When you are buying a hosting account ,don’t you look for coupon codes ? In fact coupons and discount offers are the best way to generate more sales. Personally i use Name Cheap to buy domains and try me i end up buying at least 2 domains every month , I  just can’t resist no matter i use domain or not i always  avail their discount offers and buy their products .

Now coming back to Libre Office and applying same savings idea to this offer,  whats the biggest advantage this offer provides to users ? Its free of cost , Now how about targeting a person buying Microsoft Office for $149.99 and offer them Libre Office  for free ? That’s what i did i targeted only Microsoft Office buyers using PPV and direct linking as landing page of this offer is pretty solid with a good call to action , But unfortunately it did n’t turned out well and more then that i was’nt able to get high volume traffic for this offer which lead me to dump this campaign here are the stats for those of you who are interested ,

Total earned:13.30

Fail Saturday First post

Dont know about you but i hate weekends as i am a workaholic and i get bored on weekends , So i dislike them so i decided to set Saturday for sharing all my failed campaigns with you guys , Every Saturday , One post , how does it feel?

Todays campaign :Bearshare – Free Download

cpa campgain case study

I am a premium spotify user and when ever i have to pay £9.99 per month it sucks , Seriously when ever i have to pay for its recurring payment i do wish spotify was free , I even tried to look for any free solution sound cloud etc but nothing was as good as spotify, In fact while searching for service as good as spotify i signed up to almost every site and then it hit me , Every single spotify user feels same like me rite ? They hate paying monthly recurring fee , At least if provided they will be surely interested in free solution from where they can get free music , on their computers,Tablets and phones .

SO i ended up searching all affiliate networks and found this offer on maxbounty , What i liked most in this offer ?  Offer landing pages as you can see on right side of this post , the first landing page is a very simple landing page with a very clear call to action button the cpa campaign case study other Landing page is another example of a very clean and simple landing page with a very clear call to action and it tends to engage more people due to having search button over it , that is something which can really help to gain more conversions and CTR ! I used direct linking with these landing pages a they fit perfectly in pop up Window (to preview i use CPVDen preview poper  .

Targets :

For targets i used websites similar to Spotify which i found using AFFPLAYBOOK Tools as i always use and also recommend you to use them to find targets.

Results:

This campaign actually was nt a fail and only i am sharing it on Fail Saturday is because it was taken off from maxbounty while i was testing it , It is still available on many other networks ( which i dont work with ) and i already have enough in my plate and i  was working on more better campaigns then this one so it was a fail in a way that i had collected all data enough to make it profitable but offer was taken off from network .

Now comes Spicy stuff (i know you guys love stats)

CPA Network :MaxBounty
Traffic Network :Lead Impact
Reason of failure :Offer Taken Down
Total Spent :$75.15

Conclusion :

I know its possible to turn this campaign into successful one only one minor change (asking my AM for pay bump could have turned this campaign into profitable one but it was pulled off from network as i already stated also by testing i was able to filter some really  good converting targets  ,You guys can still give it a go and easily turn it into a profitable one .

Bank Money With Facebook Ads

make money using facebook Before you think anything else let me tell you i am always against catchy lines like make $1000 a day and etc etc , The reason is that how much you make is total different story as it depends  on what abilities you have , How experienced you are and how you can take benefit of an opportunity , This happens and many people do fail in proven techniques which do work and are supposed to work but due to not having enough experience some people do fail and it is part of the game you are learning and you will have to fail in order to learn something .

Coming back to the topic , You know what`s major problem on facebook ?  CTR ? Creatives ? Demographics ? Offers ? People ? advertiser ?  nooo main problem is targeting !  Lets say i have an offer related to Forex trading ,What i will do in order to target Forex traders?  Yeah you guessed right i will go on facebook and target according to interests, Forex trading , currency trading and so on now problem is that this targeting option is not accurate , My ad may appear to those people who tried to get on with Forex trading for a while and once they didn’t succeed they   left it  and went some other way and are no more related to forex trading or interested in it ,  there are many other factors we can think of … now that of course wont work as our targeting isnt that accurate as it should be , No matter how many images you change and ad copies you apply .

What i am wanting to talk about today is something revolutionary ,Consider it same like re-targeting over facebook , Choose specific set of people and target them everywhere on the facebook, with your ads thats what Re Targeting on facebook provides you , now how to re target your demographics on facebook ? this is quiet amazing thing i am going to share here over my blog 😉

But before i go into how to i will answer who to target ? how to find people interested in your offer ,  Now  here in this technique we are going to target only a specific group on facebook  . Why groups ? They are more targeted then fan pages , people in groups are more interested in the subject the group is about as compared to fan pages , If targeting a group is not precise it is nearly precise , let me give you an example of CPA Affiliates group on facebook who will join it ? Only those people who are interested in CPA Marketing and who are running traffic /working with CPA Networks will join this group instead as compared to a fan page related to CPA Affiliates where anyone  who is friends with me on facebook wont hesitate to click like ,

 

Enough talk how to make this re targeting thing work ?

To target people have three options , Target people using their emails , facebook user ids and phone numbers (they have associated with their fb profiles)

But the question is how to gather this information ? the best way so far is to use user ids , to get user ids you will need a user id scraper , this is the best one so far   FB Target ID (my affiliate link ,i will get commission on every sale , i feel no shame for making some from this because what i am sharing with you is pure gold )  it will allow you to scrape Facebook user ids from any Facebook group you want  …

Ok i got that scraper whats next ? Next thing is to go in your facebook account click on facebook ads manager click on power editor and click on audiences , Create audience  Then click on create custom audience and import list of facebook user ids and save .

It will take almost one hour to show you how many facebook ids you have imported and the next step is to create your ad , leave all interest targeting etc and simple in targeting option choose your custom targets and your ad is live , The best part is that this method is much more cheaper and also highly targeted !!

 

I hope you guys will use it and make good money off it !!

$897 a week on 7search

Its been a while since i posted any thing about 7Search the reason is that i almost stopped advertising on 7search as i needed more volume and i was busy with media buying and PPV campaigns. I always disagreed with people who dont consider 7search as a quality traffic source and i still will. I never believe on what other people say about a traffic source until i test it myself and that's the reason i still believe 7search traffic does have a potential to convert for CPA Offers and thats why i recommend it to newbies whi are just starting out with low budget , I do have a traffic course on 7search which is considered one of the best course about 7search traffic and many of you may say " kj is just vouching for 7search just because he wants to sell his own course." But the truth is that i never recommended 7search to anyone just to make a sale for my course or any other product,course or any service i review on my blog,recommend on any forum i always try to suggest best service possible .

If you know my background i started off paid traffic with 7search and what ever i am today i am because of 7search , This traffic source helped me to build my budget so i can buy traffic from top advertising networks. Many people ask about niches that work well on 7search i have mentioned many times including in my previous posts about my best converting offers and do 7search traffic convert that i have successfully ran offers ranging from email submits to credit card submits and they did worked. Mainly i promoted payday loan offers, Email submits, Downloads . In Credit card submit offers a few of them were Omaha Steaks and 1ink offer . Try promoting well known and reputable brands ( Neverblue has plenty of well known brands advertising with them) as they tend to work well on 7search.

Here area bit of stats what 7search can get you

7search for cpa offers

And here is what i paid for this campaign

2013-03-06_1252

This is a campaign i ran for almost two years started in May 2010 and stopped in november 2012 when offer was taken off and now i have decided to create my own product in similar niche and will resume sending same traffic that's the reason i am not giving away details about campaign and offer because i am once again going to monetize using 7search .  For some people 7search may not seem to work the reason in my opinion is that they never take 7search as a serious source of traffic and never work on demographics and who they are targeting to. Most of advertisers on  7search are newbies and they advertise without any research and at the end result is not what they are expecting and they start complaining ,. So my advise for you is if 7search is nt working for you do find out where do you lack ,where you are making mistakes and correct your mistakes in order to make it work .

MyPCBackup Case Study

Hey guys today i am going to write a case study about a well known offer available on almost every network called My PC Backup i have been promoting this offer since a few months now and i have learned a lot from this offer i have tested it on almost 5+ networks using PPV Networks Lead Impact and traffic Vance both . I have tested almost 10 + landing page and 5+ separate campaigns with different kind of targets and targeting approaches and i would like to say i made good money off this campaign how ever i did noticed some very weird stuff and that was after running some volume i did noticed drop in conversion rates and this happened on all 5 networks i tested this offer with which was strange and that’s the reason i switched to a similar niche and that’s working great for me . Anyways here we are going to discuss my MyPCBackup  offer ,here is a screen shot for one of my campaign .

mypcbackup offer

What i used

  • PPV Accounts (Leadimpact & traffic vance )
  • Tracking : CPV LAB
  • Hosting For tracker and Landing pages : Beyond Hosting
  • Photoshop (for landing pages).
  • Aff playbook tools for scrapping high traffic urls.

Here are the landing pages i started off my campaign with

mypcbackup landing page

Landing page 1

 

mypcbackup landing page

Landing page 2

 

mypcbackup landing page

Landing page 3

Now if you look at landing page one and two they are two variations of a same landing page i just changed color of my first landing page. In third landing page i did added animation in image using Photoshop ( click on landing page three to see it working. ) and added a animated arrow pointing TRY IT FREE BUTTON . **i  also added windows default error sound to the landing page 2 and 3 .

Here is the CTR i got on these three landing pages .

ctr on my pcbackup

LP1 : 2.59%

LP2: 4.46%

LP3 : 20.35%

 

Here LP2 got 4.465 ctr as i added sound in it and more then that just one more addition in this ctr (animated arrow ) boosted ctr to 20.35% . Later on in doubled my ctr on landers i further created ( sorry i am not going to disclose those landers here. )

 

Targets : I use Aff playbook tools for scrapping high traffic urls. i really can not disclose my targets here as i am still promoting similar stuff on them , Just take a break and think about who will need backup and where do they go and you will easily find some really good targets for your campaigns . Also my purpose here is not to make you copy cat but to let you know how exactly you do test out offers and buildup your campaigns.

 

Final thoughts :  A very small change in your landing page can bring in huge change in ctr always do test different things and keep on tweaking your landing page and campaigns . Always start off with more then one landing page and make sure you rotate them and carry out diffrnet tests on your landing page and monitor your traffic using trackers .
