Hi, tell us about yourself, A little bit about your life and how you got into IM?
Hey KJ, Thanks for the Interview. Myself Samrath Gupta (SAM) and I’m an Affiliate Manager At CWinter Media Ltd.
When my age was of playing games like Cricket, Football, etc.. I played with my laptop and Google. I had a deep desire to get everything in my life and my desire showed me the way of Internet Marketing/Affiliate Marketing and as a Result I’m HERE !
How long you have been in affiliate marketing? And how did you did get involved in affiliate marketing?
It’s been over 4+ years I’m in this Field and really loving it. As I stated above, I had a very deep desire to achieve everything in my life and fulfill all the needs of my family and my desire took me to a way which was unfamiliar as well as unknown for many people at that time. I used to hear that, People make money from their computers but never knew how the heck they do it. I learnt everything myself. I had nobody to TEACH ME or tell me what’s right and what’s wrong.
I did everything myself and built my own empire with my hard work.
What has been the biggest success in your life?
|| SUCCESS || SUCCESS || SUCCESS || SUCCESS ||
This is my Target of anything I do….
As far If we talk about my biggest success… It was when I made my First $ online. I was so much proud of myself, and so was my dad! It was my biggest success because Finally, I knew that I’ve cracked the Vault.
Have you ever felt like giving up affiliate marketing?
Honestly. Yes, When I was new to this World I made lots of mistakes and some of the mistakes were so dumb that you will Laugh like crazy on them…. When I was new, I joined many PTC’s(Paid To Click Sites) Who promised to pay $100/Click and I used to click their ads everyday for 2-3 months but unfortunately I didn’t got a CENT L At That Time I thought all this is not for me. But you can’t learn bicycle without falling from it…. The same way I again stood up and this time things went well for me because I learnt from my failures.

What verticals is your Favorite and what is your favorite traffic source?
My fav verticals are Email/Zip submits and Dating. For dating offers PPC has worked wonders and for email/zip submits PPV has did a great job. The reason behind using PPC for Dating and PPV for Email/Zip submits is quite clear. We know PPV is a type of unwanted Ad and mostly people close it without even watching at it. If you promote an Email/Zip submit via PPV then if someone watches your ad he see’s that He just has to fill a one field to get an Ipad or whatever which attracts him as well as PPV is CHEAP!
Since for dating related offers they are quite long forms and PPC is suitable because this way people know on what they are clicking and possibly they will register
