By the time you get done reading this, there should be a popup on your screen that I created using the most recent tool added to my blogging and marketing toolbox, Engagifire.
Engagifire is a very cool piece of software that allows you to easily create popups or slide-ins which you can add to your blog or website to capture your visitors attention and then entice them to perform an action you want them to perform.
You should have seen the example popup on this article, but I’m going to reference another Engagifire popup I created to explain why this is such an awesome tool.
I created an Engagifire popup and added it to my It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia fan site (the same one I got a million pageviews on a few months ago).
Creating an awesome looking popup like the one above is really easy with Engagifire. They have an amazing builder tool that allows you to drag and drop components into your popup. They also have a library of templates to help you get started and a few built in specifically for Teespring campaigns, which is pretty cool.

For a long time pretty much every affiliate was using Prosper202 to track their affiliate campaigns. Over the past year, we have seen the tracking landscape change quite a bit and there are a lot of great new options available. One of those options is AdsBridge.
Like other new tracking solutions, AdsBridge is a hosted platform. That means you do not have to worry about the headache of purchasing hosting, installing the tracking software yourself, and hoping your server stays up when you finally get a big campaign going. AdsBridge takes care of all that for you. Some affiliates are against using hosted tracking solutions, but I’m all for it. The less I have to worry about, the better!
One of the things I really like about AdsBridge is that it’s packed full of features. They are really attempting to go above and beyond just being a tracking solution. For example, they have a nice big library of free landing page templates. They also allow you to create as many subdomains for your tracking as you want, for free.
The Pro account for AdsBridge is $79/month with up to 1,000,000 visits, but they have a free Basic account you → Continue Reading
Last month I decided to try something new. I have been tackling a lot of big projects so I decided to take a break from all that and try something a little easier and created a WordPress blog for one of my favorite TV shows, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. WordPress blogs are easy to setup and with the new season of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia right around the corner (it started January 14th), I thought it would be fun to create some content for the blog.
I have also a very large audience for this particular show. I created my first Facebook Page for it on October 13, 2011. Since then, I have accumulated an audience of:
Facebook Pages (6): 543,206 Likes Twitter: 114,900 followers Email subscribers: 60,000 Tumblr: 4,840 Pinterest: 523
My primary channels and focus for this niche has been my 6 different Facebook Pages and the Twitter account. The email list is nice, but I do not mail it often, and the Tumblr/Pinterest users are not as engaged as my Twitter/Facebook audience.
My goal with this blog was to try to generate a 1,000,000 pageviews in 1 month from my social media audience. I have been reading article → Continue Reading
Every year for the past 5 years I have had the amazing opportunity of going to Affiliate Summit conference to represent PeerFly. I have saved every name badge I have gotten from Affiliate Summit and I have 11 of them now! Every year the conference gets better and this year was no exception.
I flew into Las Vegas on Saturday, January 17th. Our team at PeerFly will usually try to get to the conference a day before it starts so we have time to prepare and enjoy the city it’s being held in. Las Vegas is always a blast so once we were settled we went to dinner, I met up with a few friends from the industry, and played some blackjack at the Paris until about midnight.
The first day of the conference Affiliate Summit has it’s Meet Market. The Meet Market is a giant room filled with tons of tables where representatives from companies in the industry are waiting to meet all the attendees. PeerFly did not get a Meet Market table this year so I walked around and met with a bunch of the companies we are already working with and spoke with a few that were new.
