Tatiana Alshevskaya Mobidea Network

Tell us a little bit about yourself. How old are you? Where do you live?

Hello! My name is Tanya. I’m 27 years old. Several years ago, I came from Belarus to Portugal to do my Master’s degree in International Business. Since then, I’ve been happily based in Lisbon. It’s an amazing city with great weather, friendly people, and super tasty food.

How long have you been working in this industry, and how did you get involved?

Upon graduating from university, I worked in an ad agency in Belarus for 3 years. After moving to Portugal, I started working in the digital marketing industry. It’s been two years, and I really enjoy how fast-moving this industry is! At Mobidea, I work as a Key Account Manager and I’m always happy to help media buyers and webmasters on their way to success!

What is the most expensive thing you ever bought?

I prefer spending money on experiences, not things. That’s why I’m burning my hard-earned money on awesome trips that take me everywhere in the world! The memories of the remarkable places I visit stay with me forever and help me learn new things. Moreover, attending affiliate marketing industry events is a great way to meet interesting people and enrich your knowledge.

Please tell us more about Mobidea. What do you guys do?

Mobidea is a mobile affiliate network. We specialize in the monetization of mobile traffic from all over the world. We’ve got offers that have been previously tested for our affiliates, as well as the opportunity to use our Smart link so as to auto-optimize your traffic. You can check this post to understand how mobile affiliate marketing actually works.

There are lots of affiliate networks. How is Mobidea different when compared to what we see out there? What sets you apart from the crowd?

Here are some reasons that make us different:

  •  Our experienced team of Mobile Analysts can give you insights to help you make more money. We are doing media buying ourselves, so we know what we are talking about. Our multicultural, multilingual and dedicated support is available 7 days a week.
  •  We pay fast via Wire Transfer, PayPal, Paxum, Firstchoice Pay, Payza, and ePayments.
  •  We monetize mobile traffic worldwide
  •  We pay lots of attention to improving the knowledge of our affiliates with the help of the Mobidea Academy: Affiliate Marketing Training, Guides and Tips . It’s an amazing educational platform for online marketers!
  •  We also have Integrated Tracker Capabilities which allow users to easily deep dive, analyze remarkable amounts of reliable data, and make better decisions when going through the optimization process!

On average, how much revenue are your top affiliates currently generating?

More than enough to live a happy (and rich) life. You probably know those affiliates personally from events and workshops they give, where they may disclose their revenues.

How easy is it for affiliates to join your network? What is the main advice you can give to users who are interested and want to join Mobidea?

We are a pretty newbie-friendly network. You can start running the offers as soon as you fill out the signup form.

Since you can test immediately, we will only ask for documents after you’ve been able to generate your first 50€ in earnings. We request an Identification Document and a proof of address (utility bill, bank statement, etc.) that can be matched with your identity. This verification is important for security purposes. Moreover, affiliates can be sure this process is completely confidential.

If you could give one tip to the newcomers starting out in this fast-growing industry, what would it be?

Be patient. Lots of beginner media buyers quit too soon and try to make too many changes in their campaigns straight away. Imagine you have just launched your first campaign. You need to be prepared to invest some money on actually learning something from the data you get. Information is gold! That’s why one of the first steps is to just gather stats so that you can optimize and earn a lot of money in the future!

Can you tell us which are some of your most effective marketing methods that work on your network to drive traffic?

On our platform, we have a variety of offers. They open up a remarkable opportunity to every single affiliate to build their own strategy, later becoming able to know how to better promote offers. Our affiliates base their strategy on such factors as the offer type, the offer’s flow, the traffic sources, and the GEOs they prefer to work on.

Every year, you need to be more and more creative in order to make your campaigns work. That’s why our affiliates share feedback and really believe that creative materials are very important. A good pre-landing page should engage the user, be related to the offer, and have a professional appearance matching the design of both the banner and offer. Mobidea’s affiliates are constantly testing banners in combinations with pre-landers to see which flow works best.

What are your favorite traffic sources? What niche has worked best for your network?

We have a well-diversified portfolio of offers on our platform. For instance, we work with adult, dating, mobile content, sweepstakes, games and other verticals. We are open to new trends and are constantly diversifying our portfolio. Indeed, we go into Nutra, Finance, Health and Beauty offers, etc. We consistently try to develop our portfolio, so that we guarantee affiliates have the chance to choose the best offer in the niche they prefer to work on. Our industry is very dynamic which means that – as an account manager – I have to keep in touch with affiliates on a daily basis. This is hugely important, because it allows me to share the experience we have and provide advice about emerging opportunities.

On Mobidea, we know that media buying is not something that gets done by hearsay. I would like to point out that – depending on the vertical – different traffic sources can perform well. We’ve even made a detailed comparison of mobile adult ad networks in the Mobidea Academy that you can check. By reading it, you’ll be able to understand that we’ve had a pretty good experience with such big players on the market as ExoClick, Traffic Factory, Traffic Junky, etc.

On mainstream, the offers are even more diversified than on the adult vertical. This means you need to understand that some traffic is working better with a specific type of offers. For instance, sweeps are awesome on pop traffic. In general, on mainstream, I would pay attention to such ad networks as Adcash, Propeller Ads, and Zeropark. We’ve recently created a series of ad network reviews that you need to check.

Thanks KJ Rocker for an amazing interview! It’s always a pleasure to be able to talk about affiliate marketing in general, and Mobidea in particular! Hope to see you again soon! The next time we meet, I’ll be interviewing you instead. Keep creating awesome content! 🙂

I would like to thank Tatiana Alshevskaya for taking time out of her busy schedule and sharing her thoughts with us and telling us about her network. What are your thoughts on the interview? Kindly share your thoughts in the comments section below. Also, if you have any experience with Mobidea, please write a review for them in the comments below.

Tips and Tricks for Affiliates from an Affiliate Network CEO

Tips for CPA Affiliates from an Affiliate Network CEOMatt is the managing director of  WOWTRK CPA Network. Matt has been involved in the CPA/CPL industry since the age of 12, when he setup one of the first cash back websites in the UK. In 2007, at the age 16, Matt setup WOWTRK which has become a leading international network, working with many well-known, multi-national organisations.

Tips for CPA Affiliates from an Affiliate Network CEO

Tell me about yourself, what do you currently do?

I’m Matt, the Managing Director of WOW Media, a multidisciplinary marketing agency specialising in Affiliate Marketing. I set-up the company in 2007 and since then the business has grown from strength to strength, particularly within the performance marketing sector. We currently have six dedicated WOW sites, including WOW Trk our CPL affiliate network, our freebie website, a voucher code website and various other projects too.

 

What was the inspiration behind WOW Media, how did you get into the industry?

I started out in the industry when I was very young. When I was 12 I started selling sweets in the school playground, after I’d made my first £20, I invested it and made my first website. It was a cashback site which later became ‘British Rewards’. Users would complete affiliate based offers and earn cash back in their member accounts. This propelled me into the world of affiliate marketing at a time when it was a fairly new concept.

What is Affiliate Marketing & does it work?

Affiliate marketing is when an individual or even another business, promotes a product or service on behalf of a merchant and receives a commission for doing so. It enables an advertiser to reach a much wider customer base through the various different ways their affiliates promote the offer.

An Affiliate network is a platform that connects the right affiliates with various advertisers and then tracks the performance using various tracking methods. When a WOW Trk affiliate makes a sale or generates a lead, the action is shown in their account. They are then awarded the commission when the advertiser has confirmed the quality of the lead.

What’s the best thing about Affiliate Marketing?

It allows publishers to earn a second income, monetise their existing blogs and websites or even act as a platform for setting up their own business. This is appealing because it’s a flexible way of making money online – You could travel and earn a living, it’s great for stay-at-home Mums or for anyone wanting to work remotely in the digital space.

What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to face in business?

I would have to say growing the business with no financial support has been the hardest challenge. Obviously at such a young age I had no income to inject into projects, in the early days I re-invested all profits back into the business. It really was a case of starting with nothing and turning it into something.

How do you stand out against competition?

We’ve introduced a lot of unique tools for our affiliate network, WOW Trk. This really sets us apart from other networks and allows us to focus on quality leads. For example, our fraud detection platform WOWDETECT enables us to increase an Advertiser’s return on investment, it’s a superior platform in comparison to the typical fraud prevention methods used by other networks.

We also offer a range of tools to help Affiliate’s increase their sales and earn more money from the platform, such as a plugin that can be installed on their WordPress websites, this enables them to quickly start promoting WOW Trk offers with minimal effort.

What Defines the way you approach business?

Relationships are what underpin business and ultimately success in business. Our Affiliates, our merchants, our business partners are all built on solid relationships and understanding from both sides. As long as there is good communication, good collaboration and of course a common goal, then your approach to business is on the right track.

What different ways can an Affiliate make money?

There are so many methods and so many different offer types to promote. If you’re interested in selling something to your visitors you might promote a ‘CPS’ offer and earn a commission for every sale you generate. For this you need a good pre-sell, lots of interesting content and information about the product. WOW Trk is predominantly a CPL network; affiliates generate leads rather than sales and earn a fixed amount for every lead they deliver. This can be more appealing because you only need to generate interest, you don’t need to close the deal.

In terms of how they promote the offers, it does vary between advertisers, sometimes there are certain restrictions but usually it can be a combination of website traffic, social media, email marketing, even PPC. This opens affiliate marketing up to almost anyone who has access to an audience in the online space.

What’s the most common mistake you see new Affiliates make?

Trying to promote offers that are unrelated to their audience. Generally, if you have blog traffic related to something very niche or specific, those visitors are unlikely to be interested in a service or product that’s completely different. You could call it lack of targeting, that’s a very common mistake. As an Affiliate you should be segmenting your emails, adding relevant and relatable advertisements to your website and building a targeted community on social media.

What’s your top tip for a new Affiliate?

That’s a difficult one, I would have to say research and keeping up to date with everything in the industry are the most important things. Research, because you can’t pre-sell something unless you’ve taken the time to learn about what it is you’re promoting and get an understanding for the brand. In order to compete with the top affiliates out there, you also need to keep your digital skills fresh and utilise new tools and platforms that can help you increase your sales.

Is Affiliate marketing a long-term profitable avenue?

Affiliate marketing has been around for quite a few years now and it’s definitely here to stay. For merchants it can totally transform their marketing strategy, they could have hundreds or even thousands of other people helping build their brand awareness, reaching more customers than they could ever have reached without it. More and more advertisers are starting to see the benefits of this model, so affiliate marketing is only going to develop in the future.

I would like to thank Matt for taking time out of his busy routine for us. I really enjoyed Matts interview and I hope my readers would also like to read this interview, It was a great pleasure for me to interview him.
