Ask An Uber Affiliate Round 6

carl asks…

How do you choose your niches/products and how many campaigns would you recommend running at once? thanks, keep up the good content!

1) I choose based on how the offers perform around various networks, and the potential I see in it.

2) Run as many campaigns as you can manage. If you’re running one campaign and it takes 30 minutes a day to maintain, start up a few new ones and do some testing with them. If they all start spending a lot of money etc and it’s too much to manage, cut the worst performing campaign and work on the other(s).


Alex asks…

How many ad copies and landing pages do you split test with when creating a new campaign?

Ad copies…around a bajillion. Not really but it takes me a loooong time and probably 50-100 ads at least before I find one that performs best. As far as landing pages, I also throw a ton of different variations up, I probably test 5-10 pages before I pick one that’s the best.


NathanT asks…

I watched this video on a strategy for breaking into tough ppc markets using a strategy of high bids low budget and keep on making new campaigns unitl you can consistently do over 2.5% ctr. I tried this strategy on a market I would like to break into and got hammerd – I was paying $10 a click for position 6 when I know the top 3 places would only be able to afford $1.5 per click max. I lost about $400 testing this offer.

You can watch the video at and there is also a free report that summarises the video whcih you can download from

Is this a strategy you employ?

Well on some campaigns I do over 2.5% CTR, but I don’t keep creating new campaigns until I hit it. At $10/click for position 6, you’re probably competing against big name companies that are just paying for branding? Are they affiliate sites on top of you?

I will say that I usually lose much more than $400 when first testing a campaign, and at $10/click that’s only probably around 50-60 clicks for you. Bid on some longer tail keywords so you’re not paying as much and will be able to get more clicks to test around with. Or do testing in Yahoo/MSN to find what keywords are working for you.


Tim says…

Which market in the PPC arena do you consider (1 “hot” at the moment, (2 a long-term sustainable business model, and (3 the easiest and safest to promote


1) Hot…ringtones…dating…crush offers. Nothing surprising.

2) Long-term…probably offers more in the financial field.

3) Easiest and safest…too hard to say really. Some people have a much easier time than others with completely different niches.

My Awesome Blog asks…

Which affiliate network do you currently think is the best?

I am currently digging CX Digital the most. The network is growing really fast, they’ll be up at the top soon I think. If you want to sign up, in the extra notes box write “from uberaffiliate, request fraser”. You’ll be hooked up.


Kerry asks…

I am only experienced in SEO marketing and know how long it could take trying to get top ten listings in google for a competitive keyword. But trying to learn more about PPC.

Would you rather work on a long process of SEO affiliate markerting trying to get top ten rankings in the search engine for your profitable keywords? or would you stick to PPC because of the “quick” money that you could make?

Definitely sticking with PPC for now. It’s what I know, I’m making good money with it, so I have no reason to stop and use my efforts and time trying to learn a totally different ball game. If I ever wanted to fully SEO out one of my PPC sites, I’d just pay a really good SEO firm to do so.


Jordan Hall asks…

I would really like to see a “best practices” (according to you) on building a landing page.

tis would be awesome. :)

Yeah, that would be pretty awesome. Landing Page Keys to Success.

    what are your earnings per month at now, i know they used to be 300,000.00 has it increased, decreased, or stayed the same?

  4. March 29, 2008

    How do you keep track of everything – costs, income, ads, neworks, domain registrars, hosts, landing pages, testing…etc?

    What did it cost in terms of time and dollars to develop your inhouse tracking system? Is this based on php/mysql? What data points do you measure?

  6. March 29, 2008

    What do you find to be better in terms of making the highest amount of money (after PPC costs): short form only low payout offers, or high payout product/service offers?

  7. March 29, 2008

    Also one other thing, how do you increase conversions on a simple form/one field entry offer on the landing page, or do you just direct link those? It seems that trying to sell such a thing with a long in-depth page wouldn’t work well, so is adding the landing page for those offers just an extra unnecessary step?

  8. March 29, 2008

    I wish I would have known to put that in the box for CX Digital. I just signed up for them yesterday. I hope I get accepted fast. There is one offer I really want to get started on.

  9. March 29, 2008

    in the extra notes box write “from uberaffiliate, request frasier”. You’ll be hooked up.

    Good advice, but you guys will get hooked up better if you spell his name right (fraser) ;)

  10. March 29, 2008

    It is interesting to me how you measure the potential in a niche.

    Google Trends / Traffic Estimator or some other method?

  11. March 30, 2008

    How did you get so many blog readers/subscribers in so little time? You’ve only been blogging for 7months and you got 2132readers!!! Please tell me how you did it

  12. March 30, 2008

    I would like to see you elaborate more on your tracking system. i think we know it is in house and you track everything right down to the keyword and ad. Since you are not a developer, Where did you get it? exlaborate more on all the data points you track and maybe some report layouts you like to look at everything. No, i dont want your keywords too – but I would like to know more about your tracking…

    Yeah, i just joined CX mid march and Fraser is my AM. He’s the man. He instantly ups payouts on just about every offer i run before i even start driving traffic OR ask for it. Plus he’s very proactive about coming to me with ideas to make more. Two thumbs up for CX and Fraser…
