Stackthatmoney forums after the merge *MUST READ*

Jun 10, 2011

So its been about a month since I last reported about the stack the money forums located here http://www.stackthatmoney.com/forum and I’ve got very good news. Since then the forums have merged with Affexpert Tools, and Mr. Green bringing together a team of not only industry veterans but moderators including myself which answer and offer campaign advice on a daily basis. I literally cannot stop checking this forum to see whats new that people are posting, what new campaigns people are trying, and updates on case studies from media buying to social and ppc. For this time only they are offering access to the forums at a discount before it goes up again and there are limited spots available. So many industry people are on the forums now its uncanny. If you have been looking at getting into affiliate marketing or don’t know where to start, for the amount of money just to access this forum, this is worth every penny. Included with the forum you get the Affexpert tools, Guides from Besmir (a PPV expert) and guides from Mr. Green on Media Buys & POF. You also get a POF spy tool, Mr. Greens POF Ad Uploader, tons of discounts on 3rd party software and some new tools Besmir and Stackman have been working on which you can’t find anywhere else unless you’ve coded them yourself. Some of the info that is given away in here along with the discounts on services such as servers, spy tools, landers, etc pays for the membership itself. So head on over to http://stackthatmoney.com/newforum/1/ and sign up. If you still have doubts the list of mods and admins located on the forum speak for themselves.

StackThatMoney Forum and what its worth to you.

StackThatMoney Forum and what its worth to you.

May 2, 2011

A bit ago Jordan sent out an email saying that there were a couple spots that opened up on his private affiliate forum and I decided to check it out and see what was going on there. I’m a member of a couple private forums for affiliates where we share info but for this post I’m going to focus on StackThatMoney’s private paid forum. Well I have been signed up to jordan’s aka stackthatmoney’s forum for a couple weeks now and I must say its one of the best resources I’ve come across in a private paid aff forum. The forum is filled with tons of useful info for the beginner and the seasoned marketer such as myself. I’ve known about his forums for a while and just recently was able to get into the forums as a member and contributing member. Among the various members Jordan and other individuals share info and ideas. Topics in the forums range from well documented case studies and traffic sources, to better techniques and ways to attack campaigns. A Lot of the topics in the forums covers facebook but there are also guides and studies for ppv. I must say its definitely a forum where everyone contributes. Different ideas are discussed and everyone is very open in sharing their results and how much they made on their campaigns. The thing is there is always room to somehow squeeze out more from someone elses campaign. These forums aren’t about just copying a campaign and making money, its about teaching a man how to fish, not giving him one for a day. When more spots open up be sure to grab one, I highly recommend...

ECM – Elite Clicks Media Officially CLOSED

May 1, 2011

Well I guess the rumors have been put to rest, and ECM finally closed. Things were off to a rocky start when ASW came. With so many partners going so many different ways the company was off to a rocky start at the beginning of the year. Alot of things happened and I did have some inside info as well as being privy to information concerning what actually happened at ECM. This email was sent out this month concerning the final status of the company, 6 million in funding or not. Due to current circumstances Elite Clicks Media, LLC. will be closing operations, so effective immediately Elite Clicks Media, LLC. will no longer be running or accepting any affiliate traffic. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any questions please direct your inquires to ecmclosing@gmail.com. Please submit your final invoices, if any, to ecmclosing@gmail.com Please note that final invoices must be submitted by April 30, 2011. Any invoices submitted after April 30, 2011 will not be considered for payment. Best, Managing Members Elite Clicks Media, LLC. Hopefully all the affiliates who are owed money will get paid but if you haven’t being that its May 1st you are currently SOL. There is one good thing to come out of this, a pheonix from the ashes from the good people who used to be at the company. I can’t really talk about the name of the company but I will in the coming...

If an affiliate ran over six figures, how important are they to you?

If an affiliate ran over six figures, how important are they to you?

Apr 16, 2011

Why am I posting this before my adtech recap you might ask, because I think its an important topic that begs the question, If an affiliate ran over six figures, how important are they to you? Let me ask this question, pose it to my readers. How important are affiliate relations to a company? How bad would it be to have an affiliate not taken care of who ran over 6 figures since the last conference. There is an affiliate that ran alot of traffic to a certain company that I know of. This affiliate cares alot about the manager/affiliate relationship as any should. But it seems that through out the last show his manager continually blew him off, as well as ignored attempts he made for them to meet with this manager. Now both individuals were there for a whole week, even tho the show wasn’t as long. Some background info, this affiliate who I “know” even 3 or 4 weeks ago made flight plans to go visit this company where there are located, to which the company agreed to put him up in a hotel for running as much money to the company as he did. This manager was supposed to show him the town he had never been to before, take in the sights, work at the company during the end of the week on his campaigns, and the weekend it was dinner, business, and being a tourist. This affiliate was then informed that because another pub could not decide what and where he wanted to meet this other manager, ie this manager was flying out to see this pub when he visits to the usa, that the other was more important and couldn’t lock down any time since she, oops, they wanted to keep their schedule open. Now back to adtech. This company, despite asking many times asking didn’t have anything planned but at the last minute a meet and greet was arranged but unfortunately this affliate had his meetings schedule booked a week or two in advance of the show so something so spontanious, last minute, and well short notice wouldn’t have been even considered with the ppv playbook...

Need an ad scraper? I use this, what peasant scraper you use?

Need an ad scraper? I use this, what peasant scraper you use?

Apr 7, 2011

Did you ever want a hand up on the competition to the point where you knew what they were running, where, and for how long? How about all the domains and or landing pages an affiliate is using? I’ve been given exclusive access to the scraper of scrapers that has been in the making for over a year. A group of very talented individuals in the aff space has decided to take adbeat on and slit their throats with this software offing competitive pricing and features that even rival the competition. While looking around this software the features are pretty amazing. I’ve been able to find some of the ads I’ve been running and even been able to find a couple domains that I been running on and my lp’s. The ease of use this software has is amazing. Just being able to cut down on the amount of actual money you spend testing by seeing what others are doing is a life saver. Whats better than seeing whats working now and has been for a couple days, no guess on which niches are working, just do a search see how long its been running and duplicate if you are that type of affiliate. http://www.whatrunswhere.com/ For internet marketers there’s nothing more important than data.
