How I made 4 figures with A4d, POF, and car insurance leads.

How I made 4 figures with A4d, POF, and car insurance leads.

Apr 8, 2011

Well I think its time to out another one of my POF campaigns I ran over a year ago. I was running 2insure4less on A4d. I’ve been with jason at a4d since the beginning and haven’t looked back. You can count the number of honest networks on your hand and this is def the first one. Most networks always say they always pay but very few actually live up to the claim. For this campaign I’m targeting all 50 states and had to create a campaign for each state. I first went and collected pictures of drivers license’s from all 50 states. I then had to create a campaign for each one with the ad text located in the screen shots. This was pretty exhaustive and took a while to do as I had to replicate it 50 times. My targeting was this. Usa Only Males and Females ie and firefox users only users had a car login count under 100 state was whatever state I was targetting. Overall the campaign went very well, I ran it for a couple weeks and grossed over 20k with a spend a little over 12k. You want to know the state I got the most leads in? Believe it or not...

A4d Meetup 2011- Jason really knows how to throw down….

I ended up getting into San Diego around 12:30pm and headed straight to the hotel. I really didn’t expect the weather to be so nice in SD but I decided to make the best of it and head to the quicksilver store a block away and grab from trunks and flip flops. I headed down to the pool at the hard rock hotel and chilled there for about 3 hours as other affs came in and I met other affs there at the pool. Come 7pm a lot of us headed over to bar basic and smax not to disappoint ordered about 8 different pizza pies and also bottle service to warm the crowd up for the night. After about 3 hours of mingling in a very low key gathering we headed over to flux night club. I must say that when Jason and the boys go all out they never ever ever disappoints. Throughout the night bottles upon bottles of goose and dom p showed up and even at one point with a robot. The music was spun all night non stop to which everyone swayed and danced to into the night. I decided to call it an early night as I wanted to get some rest because of the night before leaving salt lake city at 7am and heading to San Diego. Unfortunately that night I didn’t get much rest and only ended up with 2 hours of sleep. Come 10am I made it down to the room and got setup in the front row with some fellow affs getting all situated with coffee, thanks Phoenix for getting me that but sorry I stole all your sugars, and the presentations began. I have to say the presentations were on spot and every speaker did not disappoint in any way. Everyone had their view on how they handled what they presented and how they did it. Someone also used a picture of my home office in one of their presentations which was rockin. After the presentations and things settled down I met up with shoemoney for a quick bite to eat for food at mary janes. Despite what anyone says Jeremy is really...

Day 4 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Day 4 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Jan 19, 2010

Officially day 1 of Affiliate Summit. I got up did my new morning ritual with the tub and shit to get ready for the booths and meeting people. Ricardo, Ben, Jordie, and me all headed over to the show. I guess Nick got up early to meet with some friends that morning. The floor was buzzing with people left and right. I decided to make a pattern of walking around the floor to meet people. First I hit was the buy.at table they had some cool shit like headphones, later I found out they suck sound wise but nice try. I walked around and hit up azoogles booth, C2m, Mundo Medias, Getads, and mingled with some other people. It was nice to meet some networks face to face again. it had been a long time. I also got some face time with Jay Kim, Jason, and Roger from a4d. I haven’t seen those guys in such a long time. Jason and I had a beef at the end of last year during adtech london but that was squashed as it ended up being a big misunderstanding. Jason is really a stand up guy and I was glad we were able to put things in the past and move forward. So before I even got into the show I saw my am Wynonia from MediaTrust in the lobby but she was meeting with an affiliate and I said I’d catch up but wasn’t able to. Well now that we were back at Palms Place she texted me and I told her we were back at the suite and told her to come up and I’d show her around. Well after she got there ricardo, ben, jordie, me, wynonia, and Justin dupree aka Hyperion went carting at pole position that is directly right below Palms Place. Good time was had by all but I was told my ricardo a fattie going 45 mph in a cart was funny as hell. So after the carting session at pole position we decided to get ready for the evening festivities. We headed over to the palms by way of the skywalk and headed over to the interact 202 meeting...

Day 3 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Day 3 In Vegas At Affiliate Summit West 2010

Jan 18, 2010

Woke up on sunday around 9:30 took a shower and got ready for the day.  Let me tell you I love soaking tubs. the tub in our room was huge. I grabbed the ipod clock radio from beside the bed, plugged it in the bathroom and threw a playlist on and got ready for the day. After I found this combination of how to wake up and get ready for the day I think i did this every day I was in vegas. If you can afford to get your pass early the day before go and do it, it beats the long lines and you don’t have to wait with every other person who flew in sunday and rushed to get their passes. Started off the day by going over to the Wynn and saw George and Laura of Get Ads and talked with them a bit about possibly doing some business together. I went to leave the Wynn and went to valet to hop into the car and no sooner that I did that I got a phone call from Nick Mattern that he just arrived at the airport. I told him I was out in the car and I’d swing buy and pick him up so I drove to the airport. Now Nick,aka BBWOLF the former owner of WFReview, was staying with us as well in the suite at Palms Place. We headed back to the Palms place so he could settle into the suite as well. We all then headed over to the conference to walk around the meet market and see who was there etc. The first room was fucking packed. I mean it was like elbow to elbow. I saw a couple companies I knew and some I didn’t. I did see a new company that is trying to take over tracking202’s space and be the next prosper. I wasn’t having it so I won’t mention their names but my man Wes Mahler has developed a good product over the years and I seen good things come from him and his team. I can’t wait to see what develops with them and Bloosky now. Since this room was...
