Advanced Tracking for Affiliate Marketers

Affiliate Summit East Wrap Up #ASE15

Affiliate Summit East 2015 ASE15

The Affiliate Summit conference seems to get better each year and this year was no different. I got back from New York a few weeks ago, but I am just now getting caught up and I still have some business cards to follow up on!

There are two main “events” during the conference. The first, Meet Market, is on the first day of the conference (Sunday). The second, Exhibit Hall, is on Monday and Tuesday. This year, PeerFly only exhibited during the Meet Market on Sunday. There were four of us who attended to work the Meet Market and then we scheduled meetings on Monday and Tuesday.

The Meet Market was packed and I got to meet and talk to a bunch of awesome publishers and clients we work with at PeerFly.

The Meet Market has somewhat transformed into a mini Exhibit Hall. A few years ago it was more like a speed dating event where people quickly made their way through, stopped at most tables, gave a quick pitch, and then either scheduled a meeting or moved on.

However, over the past few shows, the Meet Market has gotten bigger, more space is provided for the tables, and it’s not quite as fast → Continue Reading

Increase Productivity Listening to White Noise While You Work

white noise sites

I am very good at keeping myself busy. It seems like I add a new project to my never ending list every other day and I am always working on something. I have many responsibilities now, which means I need to be as productive as possible to accomplish all the tasks I’ve set out for myself.

Making money online is a game for overachievers, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you are in a similar situation.

Because of this, I am always looking for ways to increase my productivity. I have mentioned a few of my tricks before, but there is one that I have been using for around a year now (and I’m actually using right now) that I have not mentioned. White noise.

White noise, also called white sound, is defined by the Random House Dictionary as a steady, unvarying, unobtrusive sound, as an electronically produced drone or the sound of rain, used to mask or obliterate unwanted sounds. Essentially, it’s just background noise.

How does White Noise Increase Productivity?

I have been experimenting with listening to white noise while I work on my computer at the PeerFly office and my laptop at home. I have Bose QC 15 Noise Canceling Headphones that, combined with a few different → Continue Reading

Facebook’s New “See First” News Feed Preference

See First Facebook Pages

I have tweeted over the past few days about how I believe Facebook is making some changes to their algorithm to give Facebook Pages more reach and then just a few days ago they released a new News Feed preference tool that will change how users manage their feed and can help Facebook Page owners increase their research tremendously. That new preference is called See First.

See First allows users to bump any Person or Page to the top of their News Feed. These posts are literally seen first because they are the very first thing that will show on your News Feed. 

Add a Facebook Page to your See First List

Facebook could definitely make this process a bit easier, but right now there are a few steps to add a Facebook Page or person to your See First list.

The first step is to get to your News Feed Preferences on Facebook. On your computer, you simply click on the drop down arrow at the top right of the Facebook menu and then select News Feed Preferences towards the bottom of the menu.

Facebook is rolling out See First in the News Feed Preferences on iOS and Android so you may not have the option → Continue Reading

How to Create a Viral Media Site

How to Create a Viral Media Site

Over the past month I have been experimenting with a new viral media script that has exploded my incoming traffic from my Facebook Pages.

I am always looking for ways to use and monetize all my Facebook Page traffic. For example, a few months ago I wrote about how I took a blog from 0 to 1,125,671 pageviews in a single month with the majority of that traffic coming from a few Facebook Pages. 

Well, blog posts take awhile to write and I decided to try something even easier. I found a viral media script on CodeCanyon called Ninja Media Script. A viral media script is basically a website that allows you to upload media (images, videos, etc) and creates a page on the site for that media that you can share via social media. The focus is short, simple pages that you try to get to go viral using social media.

Ninja Media Script is a great script that is really easy to setup a use. It has a nice admin that makes it really simple to add the media. I setup a reseller hosting account with HawkHost to host my new viral media sites. HawkHost has done a fantastic job of handling all → Continue Reading
