Case Study: Push Traffic from Trending.Bid + World Of Tanks (SOI) = +122%ROI

Hi, friends. In this case, I’ll show that gaming offers can be more than profitable. I’m talking about World Of Tanks [SOI] MultiGeo at OfferGate affiliate network (signing up with my referral link will support my channel and blog).

Attention! This offer is making a profit right now (Check statistics at the end of the article). With my bid and Ad frequency, it shows ROI 100%+. Also, you pay for traffic in rubles and get payouts in US dollars, so with current conversion, it’s even more profitable.

Short Summary

In Trending.Bid I’ve spent 51575.73₽ (around 850 USD with old conversion) from 15 October 2019 to 23 March 2020. In OfferGate I’ve earned with this offer (including waiting payments) 1708.12USD.

All this money I used to top-up Trending.Bid – because I have a lot of campaigns in this network. So it is 114534.85 rubles (including changing of conversion for different periods). ROI is +122.07%.

How I chosen offer and traffic source

I choose Trending.Bid because of two main reasons:
1) When you top-up Trending.Bid with your OfferGate.Pro earnings you’ll get an extra 10% bonus. That’s convenient – your chances to break even or have positive ROI from the start are higher.
2) I’m buying desktop traffic in TrB for a long time (since January 2019 I think). That’s why I have a large Black List.

Why I’ve chosen World Of Tanks [SOI] as an offer?
1) I know that there is a lot of high-quality desktop traffic in TrB – that’s why desktop offer.
2) World Of Tanks is a well-known game, especially in RU and CIS region (Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, etc.). People recognize it, so it should be easy to advertise.
3) The payment was in USD (1.6 USD per lead), and for SOI (registration without confirmation).

Settings for push campaigns and creatives

1) Title. That’s easy. [Geo]-[Offer Name], sometimes I add device type if campaign targeted only on Desktop or Mobile.

2) Postback. You must enter some text in the “lead title” field, if this field will be blank you will not see any data. So I enter something like CPA – it’s not important what to type in this field. The price I don’t enter, I’m sending it through tracker or affiliate network.
Copy postback URL “${trackid}” and add it to your affiliate network.

In this case, open OfferGate website – menu in the left – tools – Postback URL – Add New – Choose source (TrB or your name for trending bid) – Choose offer (World Of Tanks) – Check goal – In Step 3 Click on All Templates – TrendingBid.

3) Limits. I set an initial ad campaign budget as a number of creatives*CPA. So for World Of Tanks, I placed 5 (number of creatives) * 90 rubles (approximately 1.6 USD in the middle of Oct).

Unique impressions I limit as 1 for 1 user in a day. First, I like to create multiple campaigns targeted on profitable countries (offers from the same vertical or even from different verticals). I don’t like to increase my bid. So, the audience sees each of my campaigns once a day or even not see.

It’s good also because if you’re promoting not Cash On Delivery/Casino/Betting, a user sees not so many ads from competitors. If you don’t believe me try to push allow on a website with cinema or series)).

My default settings for creatives in TrB.

1) Title. Short offer name – number of creative – Region (if it’s not main) – Limits (if they exist).

I’ll explain. First creative I named WoT1 – because region RU+CIS is main (for this campaign) and I didn’t add anything to the name of this creative. But its copy for the rest of the countries was named as WoT1-NotCIS-RU-RU – all regions except RU and CIS – Russian language. Creatives for New Year holidays was named WoT-10-NG, Because I wanted to stop them when holidays come to the end.

2) Region. I add all regions that Offer accepts. For World of Tanks, I separate on RU+CIS and other regions. With the same settings.

3) Browsers. I don’t change anything. We see in stats that Amigo Brower shows the lowest eCPC and I can turn it off. But ROI is above zero, so…

4) Operation Systems – I added Desktop Only, but somehow there are Android in stats. I can say that eCPC for Linux and macOS even higher than for Windows (based on statistics). If offer accepts desktop and mobile traffic I prefer to start work with the desktop. Main reason CTR for Desktop traffic is higher in 3-5 times.

5) Age of subscription. I buy all the subscriptions. In theory, this can be a mistake, because even on the 7th-day user should get banner blindness.

My wife subscribed to some cinema site, I took the tablet in hands 3 times and after that turned off all notifications – from all sites, block opportunity to subscribe, bock Chrome notifications.

In ad networks with macros for subscription age, I see that conversion rate for old subscriptions not always lower than for young ones. And the final conversion cost can be lower. So, I buy ad impressions for all subs. Sometimes in the beginning, I set up an initial bid lower in 2-3 times to buy older subs for a lower price.

In the best-case scenario, you should make copies of your creatives for different sub age to optimize your ad spend.
But it should be important for big traffic volumes.

6) Language. It depends on the region. For WoT offer, I choose “all” for the RU+CIS region (Russian is pretty popular in these territories), but for dating campaigns, I’m setting up only the same language as my creative.

7) Category of traffic source. I never touch this setting. I have big doubts about сredibility of this information.

8) Schedule. I don’t touch it. Change it according to the schedule of your offer (for Cash On Delivery or Crypto offers).

9) Sources. I add all of them (all CPM), support recommends to make one copy of your creative for each ssp. If you spend $$$ it makes sense.

10) Blacklist and White list. I have Big Black List, that I’m using for all my desktop campaigns and another one for mobile campaigns. This is a questionable decision but my goal isn’t to make the biggest number of conversion. My goal is to achieve the best ROI with an available budget. If you want BL ask it in our Telegram chat.

11) Pricing Model – I always choose CPM. Back in days, CPC wasn’t available. But the reason is that the system works with CPM. When you mace creative with CPC bid, it will try to determine CPM value and again and again (if we assume, that your CTR will change). So, I’m pretty sure that creative with CPM model will get more views that its clone with CPC model because the system should count CTR risks in CPM calculation. For the CIS region, I set up an initial bid as 0.5 rubles, for RU 0.9 rubles. In the end, I set up a bid for top creatives as 1.2 rubles (it’s greedy). I understand, that in this case, I can increase the bid on a half.

12) Ad Impressions Frequency. I start with 1 impression in 14 days, if creative shows good ROI (over 50%) I increase impressions frequency to 1 in 7 days.

1) As all STM guides say when you test a new offer you should use 2 landing pages, 5 creatives. I follow this plan. When I create a new campaign, I try to make 5 different angles (but regularly it comes to 5 variations of the same angle).

World Of Tanks is a game offer and a well-known brand, so I have used the logo in different variations as an icon, for the main image I used images from google (arts).
From the first 5 creatives, 2 show the best result, and they brought almost all the money. Best creative I’ll not show, but it has a minimum difference with the second one. This is a translation of creatives on Russian.

Headline (H): Attention Fighter!
Description (D): We need you. Sign up and fight!

And here is 3 not so successful creatives:

2) Once in 3 weeks, I renewed the blacklist and after 1.5 months I decided to try new angles. With erotic content.
And this brought me another 2 profitable creatives:

And 3 bad

3) New Year was coming so I expect traffic growth and work under creatives again. I made another 3 creatives. All of them were good.

Now the most exciting part. Stats

I’ve spent in Trending.Bid 51575.73₽ (15.10.19-23.03.20)
I’ve earned in OfferGate (including waiting): $1429.85+$278.27=$1708.12
ROI (all USD with internal OfferGate conversion to RUB): (114534.85₽-51575.73₽)100%/51575.73₽ = +122.07% And if we count that all money I used to top up Trending Bid (to get 10% extra bonus): (114534.85₽1.1-51575.73₽)*100%/51575.73₽ = +144.27%

1) Even if an offer isn’t “fresh” it can make profit for you.
2) If you have access to the SOI gaming offer – you should test it. Offers with Simple conversion are easy to optimize.
3) Gaming offers (and there are more than 30 of them in OfferGate) – good vertical to work with In terms of COVID-19. Payment in USD ad spend in rubles, so I don’t see any reasons to not test these offers.

Push ads traffic RIP (again)? Let’s talk about it (Chrome 80)

Hi friends, let’s talk about the upcoming Chrome 80 update, and what it will bring to us. First of all, it’s about “Silence Mode” or how they name this (Quiet UI). It will block push subscriptions requests from sites with low CR in subs.

Is it bad? I think no because when you work with pop ads or other sources when you’ve collected black/white list + choose the best landing page your CR will be above at list 3% (for me 5%+).

I think that the most dangerous part is about plans. Check out official chromium blog: “Later in 2020 we plan to enable additional enforcement against abusive websites using web notifications for ads, malware or deceptive purposes. This enforcement will be described in detail in a future blog post.”

And this is a scary part. Because Google, I think, is best in AI and data analysis. Why do I think so? They have the biggest data volume. Ok, what should we wait, and what should we do?

In my opinion, if Google said “We will fight against push ads” we should expect a decrease of push traffic volume. Of course, networks will find some solutions like minimizing push ads frequency or avoiding some words in blacklists, or whatever. This is their business and I’m sure they’ll find some solution to increase the lifetime of push ads. But Google will win because it always wins. Check out 1xbet in Google Play to be sure :-).

Are there some proofs? Only indirect, first Megapu.Sh (the biggest push ads network) offers push ads through PWA (progressive web apps – like sites with app icons on Android devices) + first page ads + SMS ads; the second Propeller.Ads + Trending.Bid offer in-page Push (looking like push notification pop-up banner). It looks like diversification + insurance.

I think that big players see the big picture better than me, so I try to switch on Native Ads traffic + Pop Ads traffic. For now, this process is not completed, but it is what it is – I’m trying to duplicate big players’ approach but in my own scale. BTW in-page ads is a pretty good format in terms of CR (at least for now); first-page ads format is not good for me, but there are a lot of good cases with it even for betting and gambling. Actually, there is a good strategy with a personal remarketing user, that has deposited in the casino, bookmaker. This strategy increases LTV.

What are my conclusions? My profitable push ads campaigns I will not stop till thaey make money for me)). Because my goal is money making)). But I try to avoid possible difficulties – buy more Native Ads + create more traffic for gambling and betting – long money is like retirement savings for affiliates ;-). So be prepaired my friends. If you have some questions – ask them in comments or in our Telegram group:

How to failure in CPA marketing with ROI ~250% step by step guide

Hi, guys. I’m always try to be honest with you, so this is my post of my greedy stuoidity and pain)).

I’ve successful campaigns on Mexico for offer AmigosVias in CPAmatica. I like this kind of offers – low payment, unsaturated geo, non-adult offer page. Offer accepted Mobile and Desktop traffic + any registrations from 18+ users (usually payment depends on age + sometimes for users 18-30 y.o. you’ll not get paid).

I’ve found this offer most simply – I just asked my affiliate manager what offers are good for push traffic right now. She gives me 4 options. I’ve tested them 2 weren’t profitable, one was near break-even line and the last one was AmigosVias. I ran campaigns on MegapuSh.

AmigosVias statistics for MegapuSh campaigns
AmigosVias statistics for MegapuSh campaigns

I’m always trying to find unsaturated countries or slices of traffic. So, I start with Desktop and 4 campaigns were profitable from the start. Angle was the same for all creatives – mimicry for native dialog with pretty girl. Here is one of them.

Sample of dating creative for AmigosVias – Mexico

Ok, let’s go to the numbers. I’ve used for this offer MegapuSh and PropellerAds. In PA total AdSpend 60 USD and Revenue 155 USD, in MP 82.89 USD AdSpend and 100.4 USD Revenue.

Statistics of mobile ad campaign at PropellerAds for AmigosVias

AmigosVias campaign statistics for Desktop Push Ads Campaign At PropellerAds

So where is failure? This offer has been stopped at 08 January, I was greedy with my regular strategy – 1 impression per 14 days (336 hours). When I’ve received the warning that this offer will be stopped, I’ve changed setting to 1 impression per 24 hours, but it was too late)). My conclusions: first – I should always try to scale profitable campaigns, especially if overall ROI is higher than 200%; second – I should always try successful offers in all push networks with what I’m working.

Thanks for your attention, hope that this post will help you not repeat my mistake.

Ho ho Holidays and traffic arbitrage

Hi, friends. Happy holidays to all of you. Let’s talk about traffic arbitrage (CPA marketing) on holidays. Some of my and your colleagues stop ad campaigns on holidays. There are obvious reasons to do that: 1) they want to get rest and not take control over campaigns; 2) they work with verticals sensitive to holidays (for example my results in dating in New Year’s Eve (31 Dec – 1 Jan) is worth than in regular days or weekends. Also, fewer new campaigns get started in holidays (fewer moderators in ad networks + fewer affiliate marketers work in Holidays).

Video version traffic arbitrage (CPA marketing) on holidays

I look at that as an opportunity. I’m buying more traffic, this traffic would be of higher quality for the same bid. As you see for the same campaign from 26 to 29 Dec there were 1800 clicks with medium (M) activity, 10000 clicks with low (L) activity, and almost zero with high (H) activity. As you see from 30 Dec to 6 Jan I’ve received 10550 clicks with L activity, 3150 with M, and 150 with H. So, the proportion of M and H activities traffic is higher as I expected.

Amount of Push traffic by zone activity from 26 to 29 of Dec in PropellerAds
Amount of Push traffic by zone activity from 26 to 29 of Dec in PropellerAds
Traffic volume from 30 Dec to 6 Jan in Push format propeller ads by zone activity
Traffic volume from 30 Dec to 6 Jan in Push format propeller ads by zone activity

Also, the conversion ratio even higher in holidays for this campaign. But this could be an accident, cause I’ve launched this campaign only on Dec 26. That’s why while I was turning off not working creatives and zones, CR was lower.

And the same situation on other campaigns, CR on 31 Dec was lower, but on 1st Jan and till today (6th) it’s equal or even better than usual. Thanks for your attention. If you have any question ask them in commentaries to this post.

List of push ad networks with cheap but quality traffic (works for me)

My telegram group (here you can ask advice about affiliate marketing)

When you want to start your affiliate marketing jorney you should choose an offer and traffic source. Of cource you could say about tracer, pre-landings, creatives, etc., but in my opinion if you have bad offer or super saturated traffic source your chanses to find your first profit extrwmly decreses. So let’s speak about traffic sources, that I’m using for now and I’m planning to use in 2020.


Geo volumes of push ads in MegapuSh
Geo volumes of push ads in MegapuSh

This is the first and biggest push ads network. Good thing is that owners and team always work on improvement of traffic quality, for example, they’ve added a “free-click” feature. If they determine that from some of the feed sources you’re getting bot traffic – you will not pay.

Free clicks in Megapu.Sh
Free clicks in MegapuSh
  • Minimum deposit – 100 USD
  • Minimum bid – 0,001 USD (0,1 US cent) – CPC
  • 100 different feeds (but if your balance below 500 USD you could create ad campaigns only for main feed)
  • Vertical auction (you could buy traffic from MP creatives for one of available countries and verticals)
  • Loyalty system (when you fill your balance for 500 USD or more you will get “MP”, 1 MP = 15$. The minimum value for exchange is 10 MP)


Geo volumes at Trending.Bid
Geo volumes at Trending.Bid

I love this push ads network. First of all, they always have some promotions for new or existing advertisers. For now, you could get 1000₽ (~15 USD) to test their traffic. Second – they have the lowest minimum CPM on the market 0,01₽ (~0,00016 USD). Third – very fast support in Telegram.

  • Minimum deposit – 500₽ (~7,8 USD)
  • Minimum bid – 0,01₽ (~0,016 US cent) – CPM
  • 8 different SSP (traffic sources)
  • Target by subscription age
  • Target by browser language


Geo volumes at PropellerAds

Another one push ads network with HQ cheap traffic. I think there are best split test options in ProppellerAds. When you create your campaign you could create several ad copies, and then in dashboard open your campaign – creatives, and see how it works.

Split-test option in PropellerAds
Split-test option in PropellerAds
  • Minimum deposit – 100 USD
  • Minimum bid – 0,01 USD – CPM
  • Target by user activity (higher activity – higher CTR)
  • Target by browser language

I love to buy traffic in the CPM model because it gives me the opportunity to buy more cheap traffic. Of course, I could buy Trending.Bid and PropellerAds traffic through Megapush, but when I buy it directly I could buy more for less price.

Easiest way to get first profit in affiliate marketing – Blueprint [ROI ~220%]

Hi, guys, today I’m gonna show you one of the easiest way (in my opinion) to start affiliate marketing. So let’s talk about evergreen vertical – adult dating. I think that this is the best vertical to start, because even without any experience you could create good creatives, and if you find a good traffic source you would be profitable. Also, there are a lot of CPA (cost per action) offers with free registration – so it’s easier to get conversions and make optimization.

Ok, I want to show you push ads network (Trending.Bid) with lowest CPM bid I’ve ever seen. For now, it is 0,01₽ (0,00016 USD) of course you couldn’t buy tier 1 geo for this price. But for all countries, there is not so saturated auction like in other networks, for example, I have bought Poland mobile traffic with an average CPC of ~0,2 US cents. Current volume and bid for each country you could see on the “news” page.

Trending bid - volumes and bids for countries
“Top bid can cover up to 90% of traffic, Min bid can cover up to 10%. Bids are counted for 1000 impressions. Average CTR for desktop is 1.5% for mobile – 1%.”

As you see you could but traffic from Turkey with 0,00032 USD – 3k push ads views for 0,1 US cent. That’s really crazy.

When you work with push ads you should use pre-landers with age verifying (if you want to send visitors to adult offers). Here are some examples of age verification pre-landings.

Your subscription could not be saved. Please try again.
Your subscription has been successful.

 You could download this pre landings

Don’t forget to replace all affiliate links ($link1 and $link2) to yours.

I recommend placing your pre-landers on the hosting or VDS that has a low time delay for most of the countries. There is an easy way or right way. If you want to make it easy choose simple hosting (cheaper is better), for example Zomro – starts from 1.25 EUR per month (10 day free trial). If you want to do it in the right way I recommend to use Digital Ocean (if you use my refferal link you’ll get $50 free bonus), choose VDS in Amsterdam or Frankfurt. Droplet for 10-15 USD in a month would be enough for beginning. Another advantage of this hosting is that you could easily scale your VDS when you need – increase SSD or CPU. You should install control panel on it – I recommend Vesta CP – it’s completely free, easy to install and you could create SSL certificates in 2 clicks.

Ok, we’ve decided where to buy traffic, where we should sell it? For now, I use 4 affiliate programs with dating SmartLink – iMonetizeit, ProfitSocial, CPAmatica, LosPollos. CPAmatica has the best non-adult dating SmartLink – I use it for traffic back. It’s important because if a visitor didn’t pass age verification he would be sent to a non-adult offer and will earn some money from these guys.

There is a SmartLink with the best CPM rates for adult dating in iMonetizeIt (or at least I think so). I use this affiliate network for most of the countries. ProfitSocial I use for Poland traffic – conversions up to 1,5 USD. LosPollos I use for tier 3 geos because sometimes you will see high CPS (cost per sale conversions).

Ok. So how to set-up your pre-landing properly. I use one button pre-landings like “Yes, I am 18+” etc. I save my pre-landings in *.php files to send sub ids through pre-landing to an affiliate program. Example of code, that solves this problem:

$link = ''.$_GET['sub1'].'&s5='.$_GET['sub2'].'&click_id='.$_GET['clickid'].'&j1=1&j3=1';
$link2 = ''; 
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="30;<?print $link2;?>">
<a href="<?print $link;?>

I recommend to set up postback links in affiliate ad networks. Like this – edit SmartLink – S2S postback URL 1 – Copy value from your trending bid ads campaign and paste it in this field.

iMonetizeIt postback settings for trending bid and megapush
iMonetizeIt postback settings for trending bid and megapush

Almost the same operation for CPAmatica – go to mainstream SmartLink and paste the value from trending bid ad company.

Campaign and creative settings. If you’re a newbie and want to make your first profit I recommend starting from not saturated geos, low bids and all subscription age (including push subs that 90+ days on). You could start from Poland, Italy, Germany, Hungary with a bid of 0,6₽-3₽ – Mobile OS – All languages (and duplicate campaigns for desktop OS’s). Also, you could start from all geo except India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan with bid 0,1₽ it also would be profitable.

For campaign I choose 1 impression per user in a day, for creative 1 impression per user in 14 days. So User would see only 1 of my creatives in a day and would see the same creative after 14 days.

About creatives. 1) Be creative – yes you shouldn’t do the same things that all your colleagues do. Spy services could give you some examples but you should change them as much as possible. 2) Create at least 5-7 creatives for each geo. In my experience one of them would be the winner – profitable from the start. If there are no conversions with ad spent that equals to your CPA – stop it. 3) Add new creatives every 1-2 weeks for each of you working geos.

Adsense arbitrage ~25 000 USD – still working ?!


The main idea isn’t new – buy cheap traffic from not restricted sources (pop-up traffic and adult are restricted) to your Adsense site. Is it restricted by Adsense rules? No.

But when we speak about AdSense arbitrage we should track the quality of buying traffic. And of course, if something would be wrong with this traffic google could terminate your account. But Google could do it anyway, so… ))

Push ads tests in august 2019 (ROI up to 495%)

This post is result of my test in Megapu.Sh. I’m a greedy person, so I really like to buy cheap traffic and try to monetize it, also it gives me an opportunity to make more tests.

My statistycs in MegpuSh august 2019
My statistycs in MegpuSh august 2019

Desktop push ads – better for tests (just my theory)

Most of all push ads case studies about mobile traffic. That’s because of CR on mobile traffic always higher than on desktop (of course there are some exceptions but whatever). The second reason is that amount of mobile subscriptions higher in 5-200 times. But to make some tests (choose an offer for ex.) desktop would be more comfortable.

So I have made first of all desktop campaigns. If I have positive ROI I create a copy on mobile.

Countries to start

Main idea – buy cheap traffic (CPC 0,1-0,2$) . After that I was looking for countries with rather big desktop audience in MP – 20 mln+ (exception if some of offers goes really well – then OK I could try to make creatives on each and every geo of this offer).

And in your affiliate netowrks should be offers for this geo (for example it’s really difficult to find offers for Afghanistan).

Creatives, countries and offers, that have worked for me

Money amulet

Man’s nutra (ACE)


PC game (World Of Tanks)

Azerbaijan, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine,

I’m making creatives by myself for CIS regions or English speaking countries. When it comes to other regions I cut text from landing page, paste it in google translate, find parts that would be good for heading and main message.
