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

Another great AD place

Project Wonderful gives you an amazing chance to get LOW cost bids on sites you choose. I have had great success with them. Check them out for your CPA and affiliate campaigns. You will not be disappointed, they are unknown and the prices are amazing.

Plenty of Fish Advertising

I was in the dark for a long time with advertising through this method. They offer only CPM but their targeting makes up for it. They might offer the best targeting method I have found so far. Let's take a look at what they offer:

Holy crap is right! You can narrow your ads down with pinpoint accuracy and with $0.10 CPM its hard to pass this up. I have been having great success with MaxBounty's CPA offers targeting a painless hair removal product.

The ideas and ads are endless. If you can think of something we could do with this please shoot me and email or lay a comment down.

Craigslist $200 desparation sells

Well, I have a friend that I talk to from time to time and he told me he was making $200 a day on Craigslist from posting 1 times. Hmm, I got curious and went over to his house to see how this was working.

So, here is basically what he is doing (shady, LOL). What he does is makes an email account at say Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.. with a woman's name. He then simply posts that he is 20 whatever female looking for male. That he/she? is new to the area and wants to meet and hang out and maybe more.

Guessing where this is going? No more than 10 minutes after posting he gets 10-20 emails every couple minutes from guys want to meet. He sends them a generic message back saying he/she is at work but that they can contact them on AIM/Yahoo messenger.

The messenger goes WILD! He/She then makes small talk sends pic and explains that their boss is a prick and that he/she wants to call them.

The guy asks "Well how can do that"?

The next line is another copy paste with something along the lines of "Well i work for a ringtone company and if you complete this offer (Your affiliate offer for ringtones) and then cancel that she will be able to call and ask why.

He does this daily and states he gets about 1 in 5 to fill it out then blocks them. Shady way to make $200 a day but it is $200 a day. I'm not partaking in this method because I find it wired but I saw that it worked.

This always kind of proves the best niche on the internet to make money is horny men. They will do whatever it takes, they are the spenders!

Pay Per Call

Pay per call, until today was something I have never heard of.  Quite odd as I have been in affiliate marketing and internet marketing for quite some time.  I just happened to stumble upon in by chance.  Since then I have been consumed with learning about it. 

Simply put, Pay-per-call ads generate phone call leads. The billable event is a phone call to the advertiser's business. You get specific 800 or 888 numbers to your account and then generate calls those numbers.  The payouts on some are amazing even without a purchase.  The caller sometimes just needs to stay on the line for a set amount of time to earn you anywhere from $2.00 to $40.00. 

Not sure how I will approach this yet.  It is in my planning stages now and I will share how I do and what I do when I start getting some income from this.  Do a Google search for now if you want and check into it.

Let's make some more money!!!

12/13/2011 UPDATE

Whoa, this thing has huge potential to make some good earnings.  The 2 main advertisers that I trust doing this right now are Commission Junction and LinkShare.

I got in on the CJ earlier and I am testing a few methods with a little amount of cash.  If the ROI is good I will explain how/what I did.  As for the LinkShare account, I am still waiting to be approved for the pay per call.  Updates to come!

7 Surefire Ways To Increase Your Traffic Starting Yesterday

1) Invest in good advertising with search engines
Google’s Ad-words and Microsoft Advertising provide great advertising schemes that are very truly popular and assures great traffic. Although with this surefire way to increase your traffic would cost some money. While some would shy away from spending money to increase traffic, it is imperative in this case to do so because Ad words and Ad Center are the top surefire way to increase your traffic.
You could see for yourself the success this search engine advertising methods have reaped rewards for so many companies. Lots of site feature these advertising system and many have signed on to reap the benefits. Do not be left behind. Every penny is worth it with using Google and Microsoft ads.

2) Exchange or Trade Links with other sites
With exchanging links with other sites, both of you will benefit from the efforts both of you do to enhance your sites traffic. When one site features another sites link, they could provide one another with the traffic one site generates. The efforts are doubly beneficial because it would seem like both of you are working to generate more traffic. The more links traded with more sites the more traffic could be expected. Just make sure not to over spam lower tier sites as they can hurt you in the end.

3) Use Viral Marketing
Viral marketing allows you to spread the word about your company and product without any costs or if ever low costs only. This is a marketing method that can be quite sneaky; you can attach your company’s name, product or link to a certain media such as a funny video, entertaining game, an interesting article or a gossip or buzz. With this method, people get infected with the creativity and entertainment of the medium that they will pass it on to many people. If you are new to this I might suggest checking out the link at the top of this point. 

4) Search and use proper keywords or keyword phrases for your sites content

Search engines look for certain keywords that they would show in their results page. In doing so, having the right keyword and keyword phrase is a high requirement in ranking in high in search engine results. You could write your own content or you could hire someone to do it for you. Again I would suggest a proven tool here to help you find niche and high ranking keywords.  The best I have found so far is Keyword Master.

5) Write Articles that can lead traffic to your site

Submit articles to sites that would contain the same subject that your site deals in. If you sell car parts write press releases and articles about cars and car parts. Attach your sites description and services at the end of the article as well as the link. Ensure the keywords in your meta tags match some/most of your articles.

6) Join forums and form online communities
Capture a market and show your expertise and credibility. When you found a good foundation for your site, people will trust you and your site and will pass on to many people their trust. Traffic will certainly increase because they know that you can provide what they need.

7) Lastly, Offer newsletters.
If many people know what you are about and your existence is shared with many others, you will find a loyal traffic that can provide you with more traffic by recommendation. If you arouse the curiosity of your customers they would be pushed to help you with your traffic.

Writing is harder than most think!

Still making progress on my eBook.  Over the last few days I have finished the following chapters.

           Chapter 4 - Why now?
           Chapter 5 - Choosing the right sit
           Chapter 6 - Statistical Data
           Chapter 7 - Setting up your accounts
           Chapter 8 - Creating product line
 It sure can take a lot out of you even if you are very good in that respective field.  I know when I read it over after completion it will be another work some and take longer breaks type of thing.

 I also was searching around for paperback publishing and was very surprised when I came across Amazons CreateSpace which allows publishers to get their books to a wide audience in paperback with $0 costs to them.  It is a great service for indie writers and I will use it upon completion of my book.  I will plug them as it is free.

Publish and sell your book, music or film on and other channels using free tools from CreateSpace. Get started.

7 Simple Yet Effect SEO Tips

 1. Keyword Phrases: Gone are the times when you could easily get ranked for a single keyword. Now, more than ever, it is important to keep an eye out on the specific phrases that people are using to search for things. Try to think of how you would find some on the internet.  If you were looking for something would you type 1 keyword or a phrase?  Example: My dog has ticks.  Would you search for "ticks" or "how to remove ticks".

2. Content: Good content that is relevant is and will always be king in Google's eyes.  Their mission is to provide the content you want with your searches.  And they penalize copied content and reward fresh new unique content.  Content is KING.

3. Local Search: Places your site/eCommerce page in local area searches could prove huge in your sales.  Place you site in as many local searches as possible.  Examples: Google Places, Yahoo, etc.

5. Link Building: A good link building strategy is a must for getting your websites ranking high in the search engines. Look at my white hat vs black hat post for that.

6. Crawl Frequency: Content that has not been crawled has a less likely chance of being ranked in the search engines. It is important to monitor your cache logs to see how often the pages on your website are being crawled.  I still recommend leaving this a Google's default but if you have a page that needs to be crawled more you should take action.

7. Site Speed: You may not notice, but how fast your site loads can make a big difference in the amount of traffic that you get. Google has stated in it's pod casts on YouTube that this is a part of their ranking algorithm.  Here is a link to Google's webmaster help channel on YouTube

Black Vs White Hat SEO

This is all the rage in discussions about websites these days.  It has been for years and will continue for years as well.  I would be lying if I said I never used black hat methods.  I have and even had some decent success with them.  I got 2500+ back links and some forums posts pointing to my page.  Sounds pretty good, huh?

Well it is good when it lasts, Google is on the ball these days and instead of helping yourself you are just hurting yourself in the end.  The day will come when those links are marked as spam and those link farms die and you plummet to page 900 on your keywords.  Again, depending on what you want this could be fine for a micro niche site.  Most of us want the long term growth that comes with SEO and white hat done right will do that with one problem.......time.

White on-page SEO is a must in both worlds but that leaves a huge gap in ranking under Google where the money is.  You must have quality back links.  Building them the white hat way could take months or years.  Not too pleasant IMO.

I think the best approach (slightly gray hat?) might be using some black hat tools and employing white hat methods to get the content out.  What I mean by this is using a web scraping tool to find higher page rank websites and then manually commenting on them with good unique content.  You can also ask for reciprocal links or even off .EDU site alumni deals in order to be linked.

This may be a little more time consuming, but in the end I think the long term growth of your site or business will be much more successful.

It is quite easy to use these tips and well as others on this site to get some serious cash from affiliate marketing as well.  You may want to check out this site [] for some great training on affiliate marketing, training, tools & software.
