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...

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...

Plenty Of Fish and the relationships outside of relationships…..

Plenty Of Fish and the relationships outside of relationships…..

Mar 26, 2011

For several years now I’ve known Sheena, Kim, and Ben over at plenty of fish and this trio I’ve come to know over the years had been some of the best times I’ve had at conferences when it involved any number from this trifecta. Sheena and Kim will always hold a special place in my heart, with Ben not far behind (no homo) and the relationship I hold with each one of them continually grow on a daily basis. I’ve been advertising with POF for the good part of over 2 years on and off and seeing one or the other at a conference always puts a smile on my face. For a while now I’ve always tried to get a shirt in my size at a conference to sport at conferences but the timing was never right, or the printers messed up, and there were unfortunate delays. I love POF’s brand, its simple and clean, it doesn’t vary, and its straight to the point. As many of you know already who have met me or have seen me I’m not a small individual by any means, infact that’s why I’ve been and am called HeavyT.  Today I recieved a package in the mail from Sheena (Hi Luv <3) and in it contained 2 personal custom made shirts in my size along with an awesome hand written card from Sheena herself. In today’s industry companies never really look at how much their brand is really worth and care only about what the cheapest thing is that we can give away to make customers, advertisers, consumers, remember us. I’ve never had a company like POF go out of their way to try and get me a custom shirt in my size. Alot of the conferences most companies usually go up to 2x at the most, some not even that high I’ve seen a couple times. But POF doesn’t care what it costs, or how much it costs to get there, (and I’ve said this in the past) its about the personal relationships you build that can make all the difference. There have been times when Sheens, Kim, or Ben and I have just sat at...

The A4D meetup was a complete success and a great time was had by all. It was a nice time to get together with old and new affiliates who I haven’t seen in a while. It was defiantly worth the trip. Many topics were covered from Facebook and PPV to cloaking and legal advice. Below are the pics I took while there. It was nice to see all of you again. I wish it was longer but we have Adtech next month for that. I think the single thing that everyone wrote down was when the lawyer gave out his number...

Decided to go to our favorite italian place for dinner tonight (John Chow Post)

Feb 1, 2010

There is this awesome Italian place here in our town that I eat at all the time. The food is always fresh and the sauces are made on the spot. I’ve been a frequent customer of theirs for a while and I think I’m single handily keeping them in business. I eat there at least 3 times a week. Tonight I had the calamari as an appetizer as usual, which I did not get a picture of but I will next time, and for the main course I had Veal Parmesan. Its great food and everyone knows me by name. Its funny I even have my own table i sit at all the...
