LeadImpact is Dead, Now what ?

As most of you are aware by now that finally Lead-impact has closed its doors, For many it was a surprise move and there were also those know could see it coming. I couldn’t write about this topic before as most of you know I am getting married on 5th of april, And its hard to take time off for my campaigns and blog.  While i wait for my family members to arrive at Dubai Airport, I thought its the perfect time to share my thoughts about closure of the LeadImpact.

Dubai Airport

Waiting at Dubai Airport

One sentence I always love to use is that ” The Affiliate Marketing industry keeps evolving and moving forward”. We Living in a age and specially working in an industry where everyday there is a new innovation, New ways of advertising, converting customers, new advertising technologies.. And if we are unable to stay up to date, Keep ourselves updated with the latest trends its impossible to succeed. That is the reason i always suggest my readers and students that always learn skills, Never put all your eggs in one basket and never every rely on one traffic source.

Coming back to Lead-impact was my favorite most traffic network. When their traffic started to dry down, They heavily depended on third party providers, which was mostly bad quality, So I requested them to send me traffic only from their own inventory, With that I also started filtering their third party traffic and collected the data which helped me to only use the sources where traffic quality was good.  These were the lessons I learned from my 7 Search experience and have always helped me.

Is PPV Dead? 
Luckily its not, You can find many networks for example Rapsio, Zero Click, PopAds and also some big players like Propel Media and 50 onred..

How to make these networks work ?

Answer is simply find out what are the tracking options, how many tokens you can track. Collect data, Filter out bad traffic sources and what you will have rest is pure quality traffic which you can send to your offers and make money.

I wish i could write more but these days I am on a very tight schedule, I will write about this topic in detail soon or maybe i will simply shoot a video. For know thats almost it , Let me know your thoughts by making comments below.

Does PPV Traffic Still Work in 2016?

One of the most common questions I have been asked for years and still people ask me; Is PPV traffic still worth investment and does it still work, especially for CPA offers?

I have been promoting CPA offers for 4 years now. I started off with 7Search in the times when people were talking about how bad quality 7Search traffic is and how it never works for them. However I choose 7search because it was affordable for me ( I had low budget) and also the fact that there was little competition as most of times people were scared of loosing money on 7Search and they considered it as a bad quality traffic source. From there after, building a handsome budget, I moved onto PPV traffic as 7search was working well for me. However, there was also not much traffic volume on that traffic source.

Since then I have been promoting PPV and I still am promoting my campaigns on PPV traffic. I have seen many PPV networks come and go and what I want to say here is that we are in an industry where things keep evolving. Things keep changing and what you need in order to become successful is to keep adopting new trends.

Now to the answer weather PPV is dead or not, Of course for the people who used to simply direct link campaigns all the time, PPV is really dead. Those days are almost gone, specially if you are thinking you can make profits by direct linking same 3 years old offer, that is never going to be possible.

So here are a few things you should consider if you want to become successful with PPV in 2016 …

How to make PPV traffic work for you in 2016

Learn about your traffic network.

How many times have you contacted your account manager with your traffic source? Have you ever asked them about their traffic inventory or what kind of tracking tokens are available etc? For example, I would like to mention most people complain about bad quality traffic from leadimpact. You can easily put a stop to bad quality by asking your account manager to only give you leadimpact’s own inventory traffic, without third parties and also by using %brand% token to filter bad quality publishers and ask your manager to block the bad quality publishers.

Adopt new offers /niches.

When ever you have a new type of offer, you get better conversions; as those offers are not saturated or those products/services which are popular but not yet available on CPA Networks. For example, one of the well-known offers is booking.com, we have been promoting that offer directly with booking.com for a long time before they were available on CPA Networks. Many popular brands have their own affiliate programs so if you can not find an offer on a CPA Network make sure you contact that brand directly and ask them if they have their affiliate program.

Use Landing Pages.

Last month we created over 100 landing pages and the total size of that folder was above 3GB. One thing I always advise to people is to keep improving your landing pages, once you have created landing pages do not stop and keep improving those landing pages and keep editing them. As I said before, the days of direct linking are gone, If you are looking for examples etc. we have are offering 40+ landing pages as an upsell to PPV Rocker V4 Buyers ( The new Updated PPV course I recently launched)

Focus list building as money is in the list.

This is no secret, money is always in your list, If you have a proper funnel and you can get started with building your lists you can make 5X of what you make by sending your traffic directly to the advertisers. List building offers you two advantages; 1. You can reach your prospects whenever you want without any additional costs. For example, if you are sending traffic to an offer without list if you want to advertise again to the customer you will have to pay again to the traffic source. 2. By building list you have full control over your subscribers and you can send them emails anywhere anytime you want.

The second advantage is that you can promote multiple products to your list, from CPA offers to click bank products or any other traditional network products as well and earn commissions.

Try new traffic networks.

One of the biggest problem of using traditional top networks is that the are full of competition. As when people start learning about PPV they only come to know a few big names, which increases the competition and makes it hard for some people to make profits specially for starters. So if that is what your problem is, start looking out of these networks and you will find many other networks out there which you can use. In fact, there are many networks which share their inventory with the bigger networks as well so you will find many small networks with same traffic quality like the big networks.

Never Give Up.

This one is specially for those who are just starting out and are about to give up, this is normal and happens with all of us. Be it Facebook, PPC, Media buying or any other traffic source you will have to learn the ropes, no one can become a millionaire in just one day and it takes countless sleepless nights to become successful so if you are just thinking to give up because things are not work for you, It would be worth it to find your mistakes and find an expert who can help you with your campaigns.

Leadimpact Increase`s its desposit limit

PPV TrafficWe have learned that Lead impact PPV Network owned by blinkx (LSE: BLNX), which has acquired: Lead Impact and Adon PPV Network , Burst etc has increased its first time deposit limit from $200 to $1000 which is a good sign as now only those people would be able to join and advertise on the network who know what they  are doing and who are serious in advertising on PPV Networks , Also for he advertisers it is a positive measure as they will have to face less competition.

However on other side it is not a good news for newbies specially those with limited budget as it will require them to have at least $1000 as advertising budget ..

We have also learned that leadimpact is upgrading its system and due to that users are also getting effected for example people reported problem with their system for example account showing zero balance , Many people have also reported sudden increase in  click discrepancy and a few other problems which even cost advertisers some serious money .. However the good news is that in my experience the traffic quality and volume on lead impact is improving which is a good news.
