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.

PPV :

Advertiser Scraper

This is one of my most favorite options as this gives us ability to  target the those Ad sense publisher websites which sending traffic to a specific advertiser on Google using adsense, For example lets say if i want to promote Groupon USA , I will use this tool to determine which websites from adsense are sending them most traffic and target those websites with my PPV advertisements.

Alexa Scraper

Another great tool which makes life easy for scrapping top Alexa results automatically related to a specific keyword. I always try to get list of websites with less then 100000Alexa ranking however  sometimes i don’t mind even going for sites with less then 1000000 Alexa ranking to gather high traffic urls.

Competition Scraper

This is another great tool which helps to get a list of related sites to the offer , This is basically a SEO tool returns up to 500 direct competitors in organic search by comparing the number of similar keywords that they organically rank for in the top 20 results.

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.

5 Tips that will increase your ppv campaign results

5 ppv tipsHey guys at the time of writing this article I am flaying to dubai and thought I would be a great idea  to utilize my time to write something helpful for you , So here am I with 5 tips that will increase your ppv results .

So before starting out let me tell you PPv is a great source of traffic if you use it with proper planning and a plan. The first and most important thing is to do your home work properly , If you want to succeed into ppv stop thinking like a noob and throw up a campaign randomly and expect it to generate good $$$ for you .  So here are my 5 tips you can use to make most out of your campaign.

Know your offer.

I have seen many affiliates doing this launching campaigns without having any idea about offers and campaigns. That is just like walking blindly or what I call it shooting in the dark , I have seen many affiliates promoting offers which they themselves dont know about . Stop doing that lean your offer before promoting it to your traffic it’s just like selling a product you have no idea about.

Use Proper Tracking

Tracking your traffic is must without tracking your traffic you wont know what’s working and what’s not. For example at start most of the campaign are always in negative numbers to make them profitable you will have to delete those targets which are not working for example let’s say I have a $50 campaign and it generates $40 a day and once looking into stats we see there are only 5 targets which are converting for us while all other targets are causing us to lose money. Now looking at numbers we find that $40 from our campaign go toward targets which are not generating any leads, and winners only get $10 from all daily budget. Now by simply cutting off all keywords where we are losing we can stop losing $40 and devote those $40 to those targets which are generating leads for campaign and we can turn one loser campaign into a successful one it’s as simple as that, But to do that we will need to track our traffic so we can know from which target we are getting lead sand which target is making us lose money. I always recommend people to use CPVLAB. Yes other solutions are free but none of them comes near to CPVLAB .

Analyze data you have collected

It really amazes me how affiliates never use their tracking tools properly , During my ppv consulting sessions I see most of my students are losing because they can`t use their tool properly . It is very unfortunate that we consider trackers only software to know successful keywords and that’s it . If you have a look at trends in your tracker you will see information about times of a day you get conversions , Days of week and days in months these factors are sometimes key to make your campaigns successful as we need to remove anything from our campaign that is making us lose money so that’s very important to know your software take some time out of your busy routine and read all manuals and instructions your tracking software provides and then accordingly analyze your data  and create campaigns.

Split test landing pages and offers

It is always good to split test different landing pages and offers and never ever underestimate anything, It is possible the landing page think will work best may fail and the one you consider bad may get you more results. Split test different landing pages and once you have a landing page with high CTR again test and it try to work on increasing its CTR . In same way sometimes a similar offer from two or more than two networks may have different results so always split test a offer from different networks too.

Never give up

Always have positive mindset , Never get scared of losing money or failure as the more you fall the more you learn , Your campaigns you be successful from day one you will have to make them successful so never give up on the way and always stick to your goal

I hope these tips will help you to be successful with PPV And increase your profits.

$2,251 in one month using PPV

Hey guys here are stats from one of my most simplest campaign i ran on PPV , With only 9,10 targets involved  this campaign was most easiest one for me . First lets have a look at numbers ,

make $2252 in one month

 

Tough i do suck at Maths(when i posted it on my fb these stats i did wrong calculations)  but still lets do some maths , Hold on  before that i would like to show you my conversion rate and my EPC on my network .

CPA  ($): 2.05

Monthly cost = $382.3

Number of conversions = 1108.67

Projected profit= $1890.47

ROI = 494.5%

 

What i have learned from this campaign

To be honest this campaign specially its Conversion Rate was surprising or me as i was doing nothing but directly linking to offer. It was my first time i had such awesome results with direct linking  and that’s why i wanted to share this one. I have other campaigns too which do more volume and profits then this one but this offer stands out because of its simplicity and its amazing conversion rates. 1-3% conversion  rate is normal but 5.8 % with direct linking no landing page involved is something really amazing and i was very please so see these results .

Just like i always say and this campaign is an example ,All these results are because of my perfect targeting , Knowing your demographics , How and where to target is very important and thats what i did and you can witness results yourself .

PPV Advertising fails

A few days ago i was checking out advertisers on ppv traffic and here are a few mistakes i found in landers which i thought are must share with you. Hope this will help you to optimize and create your landing pages in more better way and it will help you to understand how ppv marketing works .

ppv advertising fail

 

Its amazing sometimes people dont even bother to check their targets once , all they do is to scrape targets from automated scrapers and dump all of the targets in their ad account. That is the reason most of newbies do loose money because they don't filter all their targets, As they say one dirty fish can make a whole pond dirty in same way one dirty target may make your whole campaign dirty.  For example lets say you have a high traffic target but its not related to your offer , Then it will eat up whole of your budget and other targets in your campaign wont even get a chance to receive traffic because your high traffic target is eating up whole budget.So it is always advise to keep an eye on your targets specially on ppv and even if you do use automated scrappers do make sure that you review all of them manually before submitting them to your ppc account .

 

ppv advertising fail

 

At first look i was pretty impressed by this landing page but guess what ? When i tried to click on landing page literally i found it really very hard to reach next page  . Owner of this landing page must be loosing tons of traffic just because he has only made a small piece of text click here click able  . And that is

very hard to be found on this page , Thats the reason i when use such pages , i always make whole image click able...

 

ppv advertising fail

This is why i always recommend to use preview popper to preview how your landing page will look like when it will be served on ppv networks, Here the most important thing to note is that there is no call to action button on homepage  and also signup form is not visible too , While promoting such offer on ppv it is must to use a proper landing page instead of direct linking , At initial stage you should review your offer landing page and then decide weather it will work by direct linking or you will have to use landing page . The justification most of people who always direct link give that user will maximize landing page himself . Let me tell you one thing  before user do maximize window you will have to give him a reason to do do . literally every person using internet is lazy  and they wont maximize your window if your call of action/signup form isn't properly  visible .

 

ppv advertising fail

 

Here this is another example where directing is nt a good approach at all . Here on this page  when window pops up their is another pop up in same window with images  which doesn’t feel good at all . its just like a loop of  popups which does make a visitor feel good at all best bet os to promote such offers using  a landing page …
