Tried the cigars again on PW and well, got banned! E-mail below =)

Hi Stephen,

Your account has been found to be advertising cigars again, along with other sites with restricted advertising legislation, like gambling. Given that the nicknames on these ads were totally unrelated things like "candy" and "comics" it's clear that you were intending to circumvent our rules. Your account has been closed accordingly.


My life is over, how could you! Cigars are bad, cartoon pornography = no problem. Anyways, that was my last campaign anyways. Thanks!

Looks like that is the end of that method. Although that was my last try with them and my success rate was poor again. I still would recommend them for certain niches. Mainly comic, anime, and the likes.

Affilate again!

Ran into a minor kink in my ads with! They let me run my cigar ads for around a month and I was killing with them! Well all good things come to an end I suppose and they deleted them all as tobacco is against the TOS.

Tried to run a quick bit with them and did not get 1 lead!

Jumping back on the horse and rolling with Canadian only ads as they are much cheaper on the site. Only put a small sum up and did a little research. Will inform of how it went.

Thinking of maybe making an e-book on beginners affiliate marketing and how to play it smart and earn some money. Not get rich and retire money but a couple $100 a month with little to no investment or website.


Hitting a roadblock right now! I have a few methods making me some money but no motivation to do them. I'm just at a standstill and it sucks. I think I am going to pay someone to configure a WP theme I'm so stuck right now.

Need to get out of this slump!!!

Amazon KDP results

My bad for the long hiatus! I have been busy with work on and offline. Just wanted to share my expericnce with the Amazon KDP select program so far.

I was under the misconception that you get paid for "free books" you sell on your promotion days. I did notice my fisrt sales within that time period though with the increased publiciy. Nothing special but the numbers are below.

Amount Earned

Ran 2 more and the sold results are:

Should find out my earnings soon and will update on that as well.

Overall I think the KDP select progam has been great for me, I got some good reviews as well as exposure I would not have gotten otherwise.

I would however recommend not running you promotions all 5 days straight.

Project Wonderful best bet

I ran my little experiment in running ads for my affiliate networks. I ran the same ad with 3 different ad platforms. I used Google Adwords, Microsoft Ad Center, and Project Wonderful. All using pretty much the same start time and everything to a tee.

The ROI is saw with Project Wonderful was amazing compared to the others. Although PW is CPM, it still works out fine for me. Probably better given the fact you can hand pick the webpage and then run the stats through Quantcast and Alexa to pinpoint the audience.

PW will be my main platform for the time being. I am making quite a good bit of money from it and see no reason to quit. Another site close to it is, could give them a try soon as well.

Oh yeah, go check this out for a free $50 on in advertising credits. It promotion runs out Dec. 30th so jump on it.

Book finished and submitted

Well, I finally stayed up for 24 hours straight and finished the book. I will post a link on here once it's published. Pretty damn tired right now. Will have the link up hopefully in the next day.

Couldn't help myself

The book

Short post incoming, but tomorrow I will be putting in at least 4-5 hours on that damn book. Been so long since I messed with it, need to get it done with at on Kindle. Long day ahead of me, wish me luck!

Picking the right ads and payout

This is something that is hard to get the hand off. For example, today I got a $75.00 purchase from an affiliate link. My payout, was about $4 and some change. You may say "not bad" and it isn't as I was paying $.80 for 7,200 impressions using Project Wonderful.

Thing is I am still unsure of using % based ads or set amount. It's a fine line and can make you or break you. Not seeing too much on my POF so far but I have only spent $0.69 for 8,000 impressions and they are all high paying offers.

Time will tell whether I stay with POF or Project Wonderful
