One of the benefits of growing this blog over the past few years is that I have had the opportunity to play with a lot of the awesome affiliate marketing tools available. Once or twice a week I’ll get an email from a tool developer asking me to test out their tool and let them know what I think. This is how I was first introduced to Lukasz Jasiak from BoxOfAds years ago. Lukasz and I have been in touch for awhile now and I was thrilled when he messaged me on Skype last month and asked if I would be interested in doing a review of BoxOfAds.
BoxOfAds is an awesome service used by most of my top publishers. It allows you to easily search through millions of ads they’ve scraped from the top PPV and display ad networks.
You can then use the ads you find to help you create and improve on your own campaigns. First, let’s take a look at what’s being ran on my favorite PPV network, LeadImpact.
Looking for Campaigns
The screenshot above, which you can click to enlarge, are the most recent pop up (PPV) ads found from LeadImpact on BoxOfAds.
This list is useful and I like to keep my eye on it because it shows what people are currently running on LeadImpact. A few of the landing pages shown are actually offers we have available on PeerFly!
As you can see from the screenshot above as well, the member interface for BoxOfAds is pretty nice. It’s very simple and only takes a few minutes to figure out. Their search is very powerful and makes it really easy to search the PPV and display networks they have available. You can also search through all the data for all the ads they’ve found. There are over 3,000,000 ads are in their database!
So, you can search through the ads found for campaign examples to run as well as landing pages you can use as examples to build your own campaigns around. Not only that, but it’s also possible to search for a particular offer and find targets that your competitors are using.
Looking for Targets
One of the ads from the example above that I found was for an offer that we have available on PeerFly, Dibzees. Dibzees is a pretty cool penny auction site and they have a nice CPL (cost per lead) offer with us at PeerFly. Well, a simple search on BoxOfAds shows that there are a few people running Dibzees with PPV and it’s also possible to take a look through the targets they are using. You can then dig into each target and find all the data available for that ad/target found on BoxOfAds.
In the example above, the user appears to have just started this campaign on 50onRed (PPV network) and they are bidding on the URL target upperbid.com. BoxOfAds makes it easy to access all their data and then you can use that data to dig deep and help craft your own campaign.
This is just one example of how you can use BoxOfAds to learn from your competitors and I have only covered PPV, but they have over a million display ads in their database that are just as easy to search through too.
Try BoxOfAds FREE!
BoxOfAds lets you test out their service for free with a demo on their homepage. Although the results are limited, it’s a very cool feature because it does give you live results to check out.
If you like what you see with the demo and the information I provided above, when you sign up for BoxOfAds you get a free 3 day trial as well. But wait, there’s more!
I convinced Lukasz to set up a special coupon for you. When you sign up for your free BoxOfAds trial use the coupon LUKEDISC and you’ll get your monthly membership for access to the PPV campaigns discounted to $137/month or $99/month for access to the display campaigns.
In summary, I really think BoxOfAds is at least worth a look. If you’re running PPV or display campaigns it can be very helpful. My top publishers at PeerFly are always asking me about a campaign or landing page they found on BoxOfAds and usually it leads to a long discussion on why we it’ll work or why we think the advertiser is wasting their money.
I love to talk about PPV. If you do too comment below with your Skype and I’ll add you to my PPV Skype Group Chat and we can discuss BoxOfAds. Check it out and let’s make some money!
