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
Okay, the title is a bit silly coming from a guy that has a job working at an office from 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday, but this post is not about me, it’s about my buddy Jay Wessman’s new video series course called Screw95.
I do not usually recommend the “courses” that internet marketing “gurus” put out, but Jay isn’t an internet marketing guru and when he emailed me about Screw95 I was intrigued. Jay and I had spoken a few times on Skype and he is an active member of AffiliateFix and The Dojo. His blog is also listed on affposts and I had read some of his articles on there. Well, he emailed me a login to check out his Screw95 course and when I finally did I was really impressed!
Jay is a “Stoner”
Before I go into what Screw95 is all about and what I learned from it, I should explain a few things about it’s creator, Jay Wessman. Jay is a self proclaimed “stoner” and has branded himself as such. His blog is even called Lazy Ass Stoner. His approach and brand are unique. It’s not the type of branding I would recommend, but he’s pulled it → Continue Reading
One of the most common questions that I get from my publishers at PeerFly is “how can I view the offer landing page?” or “why am I being taken to the wrong landing page when I try to view my affiliate link?” and those are very good questions because it is important that you know what you are promoting.
Nearly every affiliate network and most smart advertisers have geographic redirect scripts setup on their landing pages so that if someone from outside of the countries they want to receive traffic from comes to that page they are redirected elsewhere. So, if you have a CPA offer that you are only looking for leads from the United States on and someone from Canada tries to go to it you redirect them to an offer that allows Canadian traffic. This makes a lot of sense to do, but if you are an affiliate that wants to promote that offer and you live outside of it’s allowed countries it can be really annoying to try to view the landing page for that offer.
There are free browser based proxies available throughout the web, but they not very reliable. Instead, I recommend you use → Continue Reading
