My two primary sources of social media traffic are Facebook Pages and Twitter. Facebook Pages have done really well for me for a few years now and I have been working hard to scale up my Twitter reach too. I recently had one of my accounts pass 100,000 followers and I have been able to collect a lot of great data from my tweets to those followers.
First, I want to show why you should always include an image in your tweets. Then, I am going to show a trick I use to increase the engagement on my tweets by almost completely taking over my followers feeds!
Last year I published an article about tweeting image for extra exposure, but I never really gave any data to back up the fact that you will see extra exposure by including an image in your tweet. Well, here’s some data.
Over the past 28 days the tweets on one of my accounts have gotten about 2,500,000 impressions on Twitter. Looking through analytics for those tweets, it’s very easy to see that there is a huge difference in engagement between tweets with images and tweets without (just text).

There are a few good PPV networks out there ready to drive thousands of clicks to your affiliate campaigns every single day, but the one I have recently been spending the most time (and money) with is 50onRed.
50onRed has quickly become my primary source of PPV traffic when I am ready to launch a new campaign. Their user interface is one of the best I’ve seen, they have a low initial deposit and redeposit, and their traffic has performed very well for quite a few of the campaigns I have launched.
First, let’s take a look at their awesome advertiser interface.
It may not look like much at first, but if you have ever run a campaign on LeadImpact than you should be able to appreciate the simplicity and attractiveness of it.
Not only is 50onRed’s traffic platform attractive, but it’s functionality is hard to beat. Creating a new campaign only takes about a minute, finding and adding new target URLs and keywords is a breeze, and editing your bids is instant. They have really done a great job of streamlining the process of managing your PPV campaigns.
Of course, to create and manage any campaigns, you will need → Continue Reading
Over the past few months I have been working on a new project called Skrayp. I’ve been running PPV traffic and noticed that there really wasn’t a good way to find good URLs and keywords to target without going to Google. The process is time intensive and the programmer inside of me was telling me it could easily be automated and made much more efficient. So, I started working on a PPV scraper.
I created a very ugly, but functional prototype and started testing it out. I was scraping hundreds, if not thousands of new keywords and URLs every day and adding them to my various campaigns. Using Prosper202, I could see that many of the new targets that I was adding to campaigns I had been running for weeks were starting to convert!
I offered to let some of my publishers at PeerFly that run PPV traffic a chance to try out my prototype. After about a week I started to get good feedback from them on things that needed changed/improved and that’s when I decided to create Skrayp.
How does Skrayp work?

Voluum is the latest tracking software to hit the market and it’s quickly becoming a popular option. I have had hundreds of my PeerFly publishers ask how to setup their campaigns within Voluum so I thought I would write up a quick tutorial to explain how easy it is.
First, let’s take a look at the benefits of using Voluum. Using a 3rd party tracking software gives you many options that normal network tracking like we have at PeerFly simply does not offer. For example, with Voluum you can easily split test multiple offers with a single link. You can also see a quick breakdown of how well your campaigns are performing by traffic source. Essentially, you can analyze and optimize your campaigns much easier when using a 3rd party tracking software like Voluum.
