One of the goals at PeerFly is to provide our publishers with all the tools required in order for them to be successful. Not only is this a company mission, but it is my personal mission as well. The main reason I write in this blog is to share my knowledge and experience with affiliate marketing so you have an easier time being successful than I did.
About a year and a half ago I made a site called PeerFlyBanners.com. The site provided a script that allowed you to easily rotate the banners available on our offers at PeerFly. Although it works pretty well, has been used by over 1,000 PeerFly publishers, and has generated nearly 20,000,000 banner impressions, a better option has finally been created.
I am happy to announce that we have officially launched our own in-house rotator finally at PeerFly. It is much better than my script and here are a few reasons why.
The New Banner Rotator Features
The new PeerFly banner rotator, named Ads By PeerFly, is much more complex than the simple banner rotator I previously provided my publishers. Not only is it more stable because it is being hosted on our amazing servers → Continue Reading
I have been an active Twitter user since 2007. When I first joined most people were laughing at Twitter saying it was worthless and stupid. I enjoyed using Twitter and saw the potential to use it for marketing purposes. How people market using Twitter has changed quite a bit over the past few years, but as Twitter has evolved so have the marketers using it. One cool feature you can use on Twitter to help make your website links stand out above the the rest and improve your marketing response is the Twitter Card.
Twitter Cards are relatively new to Twitter. Basically, you add a piece of code to your website or blog and then Twitter will use that piece of code to generate a preview (Card) with details about your link and display those details on your tweet on Twitter. Sound complicated? It’s not really. Let’s take a look at two of my Twitter Cards.
With the Twitter Card examples above, my blog is linked in the tweet on left and an offer on PeerFlyOffers.com is linked to on the right. First, let’s take a look at the one for my blog.

If you run a blog then you know how hard it is sometimes to come up with ideas to blog about. Then, you finally figure out what you are going to write about and spend a bunch of time (sometimes hours) writing your blog post. Finally, you do one last read through your post editing as you go and push Publish! The traffic comes in for a few days, but then as time goes on the traffic starts to drop off. Well, I know a good way to help rejuvenate that traffic and keep the visitors coming in so all your hard work really pays off. All you need is a Twitter account with some followers and an awesome WordPress plugin called Tweet Old Post.
Tweet Old Post is a free WordPress plugin that allows you to post a random “old” post from your blog on your Twitter account. You can control which posts Tweet Old Post chooses from, but it will choose a random post and tweet it on your Twitter automatically at a given time increment that you decide. It’s automated traffic to your blog posts!
