Questions – Round 2

Ricardo asks…

What do you think about those AM that say that crappy/cheap looking landing pages convert better than professional looking?

Depending on the niche and page, yeah sometimes that’s the case. Brutally simple and somewhat crappy looking landing pages can convert. They look extremely outdated but that’s what some people are used to that only use a computer when they need something. They also most likely load very fast.

Dan asks…

Will you post a detailed case study of one of your huge campaigns that died out? Thanks.

Probably not, because there’s always potential to get back into it in the future if things go right. The only case studies I’ll do are the live ones done in UberCamp.

Patrick asks…

How did you manage to get into affiliate summit east when it is clearly 21+ only and everyone knows you are only 19?

No comment.

John asks…

Do affiliate marketers get a lot of puzzy?

Hellz ya.

ian asks…

I have mainly used affiliate programs which pay a percentage of the sale. I get the impression a lot of the top affiliate marketers make most of their money from cost per action programs. Can you please advise what percentage of your total income comes from cost per action as opposed to cost per sale. Thank you.

100% of it comes from CPA, I don’t really like sale stuff.

Newbie asks…

When you first start your campaign, you mentioned you want to bid “high” to get the good CTR and collect good stats as soon as possible, but how do you determine what is the high bid for that particular niche you are targeting?

I usually just go balls out when I very first start and bid like $10 just to see what my average CPC will look like (in most cases it ends up around $3-4). Then I’ll cut it to $5 the next day and re-evaluate, then cut down to $2-3, and then collect data.

Lorozzo asks…

You ever had sex with your girl friend ??

wtf kind of creep are you.

Robert asks…

What would you do if your campaign was doing great, then one day, the CTR stayed roughly the same, but the conversion rates dropped by 5% or more? You try switching networks with the same offer, you find out that other affiliates are not having a severe drop in conversion rates, you even try changing out your landing page, and ad copy. Your average position is the same, but the dam campaign is converting like crap. What would you suggest?

Does it have to do with a seasonal change? A change in the news related to the offer/niche you’re promoting? A new flood of affiliate bidding around you and checking out more ads? It’s hard to determine the problem with no information. But I’d keep testing different landing pages, direct linking maybe, and trying to get a higher payout to make up for the loss you’re taking.

Jonathan Radande asks…

How does it feel to be a home owner?

Man the work never ends haha. It feels pretty cool though, there’s ALWAYS something to do, something to fix, something to buy, etc. Having my own place to work and relax is super nice though, I have a lot more time to work…or slack.

Heman asks…

Did you lose your blog content writer?

Yea he actually lost focus on the blog a little and started working more and making more money and building his businesses. Poor guy I’ll try and get him back.

    I am new to ppc marketing. I have basic web skills and a great desire to learn this business. If you were starting over today and you were in my position, what course of action would you take? How would you begin to tackle this business? If your initial goal was to make $100 a day, what strategies and tools would you use to pursue this goal?

    Thank you,
