Traffic Sources

What traffic sources you use are critical when it comes to affiliate marketing. I test different traffic sources and discuss them so you know which ones are good to use on your affiliate marketing campaigns.

ZeroPark Review and Case Study

ZeroPark Case Study

When I was in Las Vegas for Affiliate Summit West earlier this year I had the opportunity to meet a lot of awesome new people. However, the guys from ZeroPark really made a great first impression on me. They had a nice looking booth and when I stopped and talked to Robert, the CEO and owner of ZeroPark, I could tell that he knew what he was talking about and within a few minutes I knew we were going to be working together.

ZeroPark is a traffic network where you can bid on traffic from domain redirects. Domainers (people who buy domain names to sell or to advertise on) “park” their domains with ZeroPark and then earn revenue every time someone goes to that domain. ZeroPark will then sell the traffic from those domains to advertisers on ZeroPark.

Zero-Click Traffic

The traffic from ZeroPark is called “zero-click” because when the user goes to the parked domain they are automatically redirected to whichever advertiser at ZeroPark has the highest bid for that domain. They do not actually need to click a link to be taken to the advertisement.

This type of traffic is similar to PPV pop ups, but from my experiences so far, → Continue Reading

How I Advertise on Facebook

Facebook Ads Page Likes

Over the past year I have completely changed how I advertise on Facebook. Facebook has evolved and there are much more effective ways to advertise than the old right side only placement days. However, there is still ample opportunity to take advantage of the right side reality on Facebook.

So, here is a breakdown of how I have been using my Facebook Pages and News Feed ads to my advantage as well as the low CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions) on right side ads to build Likes on my Facebook Pages.

First, let’s take a look at News Feed ads.

News Feed Facebook Ads

Facebook opened up advertising in New Feeds a little while ago and although it is more expensive than tradition right side ads, it definitely has it’s advantages.

News Feed ads have prominent placement because unlike right side ads, they are very hard to ignore. As you go through your News Feed looking at what your friends are saying on their Facebook you run into an ad like the post shown above.

These ads are posts that are being promoted by a Facebook Page. A Facebook Page owner can promote a post that they’ve publicly shared → Continue Reading

FP Traffic: Pre-launching…NOW!

FPT Launch

For over a year now I have been going back and forth on launching my own internet marketing type product. I have created a few tools and given them away and I have made money helping promote other people’s products, but I have not really created anything of my own and pushed it out to the masses. Well, until today.

Over the past few months I have been working tirelessly on a website that provided a service that I needed to scale my Facebook Pages. I have been working on Facebook Pages for a few years now and I have a built a massive audience in a few difference niches. On any given day I can easily reach 1,000,000+ people on Facebook through my Pages without any advertising. For example, here are the stats for one of my Pages for the past week or so.

In order to keep up with the demand the fans have on my Facebook Pages and scale them I needed a tool that would allow me to easily find content and then schedule that content to be posted. I’ve written an article on where I get the content for my Facebook Pages and Facebook allows → Continue Reading

Promoting Affiliate Offers with Bing Ads

Promoting with Bing Ads

Over the past few months I have been experimenting quite a bit with Bing Ads. I have a lot of publishers at PeerFly that use Bing Ads and I have gotten quite a few questions about promoting on Bing so I decided to give it a try.

I used to promote offers on Microsoft adCenter years ago, but since Yahoo! merged with Microsoft to create Bing Ads I had not really messed with it much. Bing Ads seems a lot better than the old adCenter with a nice looking, easy to use interface and high quality traffic from Bing, Yahoo, and their partner search networks.

Another huge positive to using Bing Ads is that their compliance department is pretty lax and you should have no problem getting most affiliate marketing campaigns approved!

Create a Bing Ads Campaign

If you have created a search ad campaign using Google AdWords or 7Search then you should have no problem getting your Bing Ads campaign setup. The interface is simple and everything is explained well. There are a few things I would like to point out though.
