The Top PPV Networks in 2015

ppv1

Way back in 2009, I tested and rated 10 PPV networks. I get asked about that post a lot, and what my current recommendations are so I thought I would update my current favorite PPV traffic sources.

I thought about putting these in order, and scoring them like I did last time but decided against it. The reason is that I have campaigns that work great on one source, and bomb on another. I really can’t say ‘X is the ‘best’ PPV traffic source. If you’re serious about PPV marketing, it’s worth testing all these.

5 Success ‘Secrets’ I’ve Learned in 5 Years of Running the Forum

I can’t believe it, but the Aff playbook Forum is officially 5 years old. When I first started it, I had no idea it would grow into what it’s become.

I’ve had a blast running the forum for the past 5 years! It’s truly been a life changing experience for me, and for many of you. In the past 5 years I’ve had a unique position where I get to see lots of affiliates on the road towards success.

This has helped me refine my own approach to my business, and also learn how to help members reach success themselves.

Free Mobile Ready Rules Style Landing Page

“Rules” landing pages are what you see being used with adult dating campaigns. They’re really just a different take on a survey landing page. In this lesson I’m going to give you a rules style LP and show you how to edit it.

You can see a working demo of the LP here. You can download the LP from here.

This is the lesson from the forum I referred to about installing the Maxmind DB for geo lookups.


Special thanks to @manu for making this into a responsive page for me

$50k Month With PPV Traffic

In my 10+ years doing online marketing, I think I’ve been told some traffic source or niche is ‘dead’. When I started out I was doing something that people kept saying ‘the glory days were gone’. I’m glad I didn’t listen to them, because I went on to be one of the most successful affiliates in that niche, quit my job, and build my business.

I wanted to share one of the recent success stories in the Aff Playbook Forum. Forum member jamtal has been a member for one year, and just posted his success story of making $50k/month. I asked him if I could post it here, because I think there are some great takeaways from his post. Success doesn’t always come as fast as we want. People think they’re a failure if they aren’t profitable in a couple months. The reality is that it takes most people months or even years to find success. Are you going to give up because success isn’t coming fast enough, or will you stick it out no matter how long it takes. Jamtal’s story is a great example of someone who knew he would succeed and kept sticking with his system regardless of how fast success was coming.

We just released a new spy tool: Mobile Advertiser Intelligence

Ctrtard just released a mobile advertiser intelligence tool inside the forum!

This tool is powered by Adbeat and will return ads found on the mobile web. (In other words, it does not cover in-app advertising).

Use the dropdown to select from Android, Android Tablets, iPhone and iPad. You’ll see the exact creatives advertisers are using, what network they’re running on and how many days the ad has been running. Right now this is limited to US traffic but we hope to add international soon.

APB Podcast – Mike Colella from Adbeat

Mobile and media buys always seem to be hot topics with affiliates. There’s a reason for that – lots of money to be made! My guest today is Mike Colella who is a successful media buyer and also built a very cool competitive intelligence tool. Adbeat lets you uncover an advertisers online strategy and see what’s working for them. Adbeat lets you collect data for desktop and mobile traffic all in one tool.

In this episode Mike answers a lot of my questions about media buying and mobile. Mike has spent a lot of money on display advertising, so it was cool to pick his brain. I asked him about what metrics he focuses on, how he runs split tests, and what he would tell someone just starting out. Much of what we talked about could be applied to any form of advertising.

APB Podcast With Eskil Nordhaug Inventor of StayblCam

Thanks for tuning in! This is an interview with Eskil Nordhaug, inventor of StayblCam. Inventing has interested me since I was a kid, so I was really excited to talk to Eskil about his experiences.

Eskil started out as an affiliate marketer promoting offers on Google AdWords and Facebook. From there he ventured into the world of dietary supplements as a product owner/creator. Pursing his interest in inventing something, he created the StayblCam. This podcast really motivated me because it’s a great example of using skills learned as an affiliate in other business ventures.
