    Inspired by cashmoneyaffiliate =)

    Background.
    I am developer from Ukraine, left my full-time job a few months ago to work with affiliate marketing more seriously.
    Have some good results with forex affiliate network, but not constantly. Also i work with VK.com and advertise online-games. This channel is stable but not very profitable for me (300$/month).

    Mobile
    3 months ago..
    I started doing mobile marketing after watching YeahMobi case studies and reading some blogs. Got approved in YeahMobi, got very good AM. She adviced me ZA - WhatsApp subscription, that was converting well at that time. I got HostWinds VPS, 1 cent for first month with installed prosper202. At that time i knew only about BuzzCity, AirPush and MMedia, so i registered there.

    WhatsApp
    Started getting traffic from BuzzCity, for $0.05 / click. Got 10 conversions with ROI -60%. Get too small amount of data to analyze, and decided that -60$ is too many for testing first offer, went forward.
    // Now i think it was a mistake, and i should test it more and in another traffic sources

    Sweepstake
    Then tried another offer - sweepstake ($7). LP was with simple quiz, so i thought i it will convert good without LP, and i was too lazy to create it ;( It was my mistake. At that time traffic source was AirPush, push traffic. I know rule how to test mobile offers - you should spend 5-10 offers payout at least. So spend something like 5x, no conversions. And decided to try something new.

    Galaxy Legend
    After reading more case studies and thought that in CPI it will be easier to get conversions, i decided to work with them.
    Traffic Source: Airpush pushes/appwall
    GEO: Korea
    Spent 10x payouts, got 10 leads. Absolutely chaotic conversions for me - after seeing some converting models and sites/apps i tried to increase bid for them and block another. I did not make another conversions :confused:
    Anyway ROI - 0%, so i decided to advertise more, also tried another GEO, but that offer was paused in YeamMobi and disappeared.

    AR - Binbit - Antivirus subscription
    Payout: $0.9
    GEO: Argentinta

    That i found some cases from cashmoneyaffiliate and decided to repeat his case.
    After approving me in Furthermobi, norton 360 offer disappeared =) so i decided to choose antivirus subscription.
    Asked my AM for top antivirus offer by volume and choosed AR - Binbit - Antivirus.
    Maded very simple LPs with similar design and after 25 minutes got translation from onehourtranslate.
    Made 4 LPs with countdown + model, countdown, another text + countdown, another text. Forgot to say, i am using voluum > 1 month and very happy with it and its support.
    Added split with direct link and this 4 LPs and started campaign in ZeroPark.

    ZeroPark.com   Dashboard.png

    Got 400+ clicks and about 150 clicks to direct page (after redirects). So i think LPs are ok, and i should change destination landing to another one.

    This journal should help me to make some system, stay on one vertical and do small steps according to plan.
    For now i decided to test at least one new offer per day.
    BTW now my budget is 800$

    P.S. how can i insert full-size images?

    Sorry to hear you didn't push that one looks like it could've been profitable.

    If you're just starting out i would recommend you test 1 landing page and angle at a time as it’ll make things a little easier. You should be spending 3x the offer payout which works out at $2.70 per landing page and angle.

    AR is very competitive at the moment, you'll need a really good landing page to get a decent enough conversion rate to make it worth your time and as this is also a CPS offer your landing page will have to be very, very convincing, have you tried using a scan at the start?

    Yesterday went to bed after changing links in ZP (moderation started), today saw -30$ but + 5 conversions.
    BTW enabling wifi traffic for this offer was really bad idea (in my second campaign) - 10$, no conversions.
    Got some troubles with {clickcode} transfering, so do not know data about conversions from AR offer. Detected IPs, model and their carrier in yeahmobi, will try BuzzCity with that targeting.

    You mean - to create new campaign per every LP (and angle) and launch them in parallel?

    Small update
    Had technical difficulties with ZeroPark {cid} => LP (this topic ZeroPark and Voluum conversion tracking). Thats why got 7 leads on weekend (about 600 clicks) in CPI offer but do not know their {cid} and domain =(
    Eventually decided to skip voluum for this offer (as i can only choose domains in redirect traffic) and use normal link to yeahmobi offer, so i "solved" problem with {cid}. Because i already found good lp, also page load time with voluum was 520ms, without it 350ms.

    Stats for the last:
    Clicks to LP: 500
    Clicks to Offer: 91
    Leads: 0

    The question is why this campaign in weekend was so good, and now its not working? Did not change any option..
    Every time when i am thinking how to make offer profitable, it looks like i have to change 1 thing, after i finishing it, i find more one, and so on =)
    Thats how mobile marketing looks for me now.

    BTW i broke my plan and did not tested new offers a few days, while was trying to get profitable this one. Today plan to test 1 or 2 new offers.

    If you publish your voluum settings we can help you with it.

    I still don't know why you want to pass the CID token if voluum has 100% integration with Zeropark. You don't need to pass anything but the clickid and the postback.

    Let us have a look at your offer setup (in voluum), postback setup (in your affiliate network) and campaign setup (voluum). I'll help you fix the tracking problem.

    Hello man.
    you've got 90% right.

    The only thing wrong is the landing page which should use your landing page URL from Voluum.

    Go to Voluum->settings->setup.
    There, you'll find your landing page URL which should be something like: xxxxx.trackvoluum.com/click

    Put that link into your lander instead of your affiliate link with all those extra parameters and that should do it. Is that LP code all you have? I don't want to see it, but want to know if this is only the part of the code where a button links to your offer or something.

    Regards.

    Update

    For this week i tested Costa Rica CPI offer, proceeded AR antivirus and optimizing VT antivirus now.

    Got 30 conversions with ZeroPark with ROI -65%. Continue to tune landing. Also was suprised by BuzzCity, banner ads to direct link gives -20% roi (<10 conversions per day).

    Thank you guys for your help with {cid} and voluum, now i can normally do split tests. I am trying to implement own ideas.
    Will return with some screens.

    Guys, could you please recommend me good PPC traffic sources for Austria?
    I know only BuzzCity, Airpush and Mmedia. But i am not sure they are good in Europe.
    I saw huge payouts in AU and decided to try some campaign there..

    cashmoneyaffiliate - now i am trying airpush.

    Sorry for no updates.
    Was optimizing LP for VT offer. My best result -10% ROI on ZP. Saw interesting bids in DNTX, trying to start my campaign there, but it looks like it will be much longer then on ZP because of manual start of campaign by admins.

    I was waiting for 1 week and no answer from them (2 support emails without answer). Finally I requested a refund and got it in 1-2 days.
    Strange service...

    After sending a few emails to DNTX got answer -
    Your account has not been authorized.
    Checking your proposed campaigns, we do not allow any "scareware" ads.


    LP is created "by design" of CMA, like in his case study. So, i think, i should try utility app landings there
