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.
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.
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:
<? $link = 'https://pwvnk.easytofuck.com/c/da57dc555e50572d?s1=1341&s2=291284&s3'.$_GET['sub1'].'&s5='.$_GET['sub2'].'&click_id='.$_GET['clickid'].'&j1=1&j3=1'; $link2 = 'http://go.cm-trk2.com/aff_c?offer_id=4178&aff_id=5204'; ?> <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.
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.
