    Agreed and the reason for the expensive traffic is because I bid high on the best performing placements as I've found they give the highest quality traffic that my AM is happy with. In the past I've been kicked from offers in cheaper placements due to the quality being crappy.

    Additionally some of my campaigns are cost-per-conversion and the more I pay for a conversion the more volume and quality I get in return from the network. I will keep my eye out for higher payout offers and I have been getting some recent payout bumps which will help a bit with my ROI.

    that's good as long as you are in a +ROI.
    all you need now is to work on your landing page so you can raise the CTR, that can lead to 50%ROI instead of 30%.

    Hi jonte, inspiring journey! I plan to embark on similar one myself very soon and I have a few questions I hope you can answer:
    1. You mentioned using Monetizer smart link to monetise back-button traffic. But considering these are pop campaigns and your LP appears in a brand new tab/window, I don't understand why people would press the back-button. Aren't people more inclined to simply close the popup? Does pressing the back-button to go back work at all? How does the ROI for the smartlink compare to redirecting directly to the offer instead?
    2. You mentioned that you're looking to move away from BeMob and purchase a different tracker. Have to taken the plunge yet? If you were purchasing a tracking product today, which one would you choose?

    Awesome mate! You definitely should start a journey these so I can check in.

    1. I believe the reasoning is that (mainly on Android phones) when a pop-up opens people generally click the back button because it also acts as a close button in Chrome and a lot of other browsers. Additionally I sometimes buy redirects which open in the same window at which time users are more likely to click the back button to return to what they were originally browsing. To answer your question about smartlink vs direct to offer I have split test it on a few campaigns and the majority of the time the EPV and CR is greater on the smartlink.

    2. No I haven't moved and I decided against it. BeMob actually upgraded their server recently and since then I haven't been getting any freezes or long load times. If you're interested in using BeMob, you can sign-up through this link and I can give you a coupon for the same plan I'm on which is great value.

    Many thanks for your answers! I'll consider starting a journey :) Although I having trouble deciding between Thrive, BeMob and Adsbridge, feel free to send me the coupon :)

    I also wanted to ask: does Monetizer alllow adult traffic, and do they have adult offers? More-so, do they have smartlinks for adult traffic?
    Do you recommend any networks for mobile adult offers?

    Yeah sure thing. Just sign up through that link and message me with the email address you used to sign up and I'll help you out!

    I used to use Thrive back in 2016 and iirc I was paying $99 month self-hosted which was a good deal, however it started to become extremely laggy with all the traffic I was getting and I had to keep upgrading my server which ended up costing more than a hosted tracker would cost so keep that in mind. If you decide to choose BeMob, sign up through that link and shoot me a PM with your email and I'll get you that coupon.

    Monetizer does have adult offers but I actually use LosPollos for my adult offer back-button as I found it performs better for adult traffic.

    I use their smartlink on my LP back-button redirect to monetize my exit traffic. Much better than just losing the potential revenue from people exiting the LP.

    My Monetizer stats. All from back-button redirect traffic that would have earned me $0 without implementing the smartlink:

    Just a short update. I have a campaign that has been going very strong for almost a month now and is actually increasing in performance day-by-day. I hope I can make it last as long as possible. I haven't been doing much in the last couple of weeks as I've been studying for my upcoming University exams so everything has been pretty much on autopilot.

    I didn't think it was a very rigorous approval process, I just remember signing up and getting approved a day or 2 later with no issues.

    Hmm that's a shame. I'd suggest contacting their support directly to prove your traffic volumes/conversion proof. They probably only want people with proven results and consistent traffic.

    A short update from me, here's my earnings so far today. Again I haven't been launching any new campaigns due to exams but after exams I hope to get some more profitable campaigns to consistently be doing $XXX days and $XXXX days eventually.

    It's so great to see you making passive income off a winner campaign.
    Have you already tried scaling to other traffic sources?

    Cheers mate, good luck to you!

    Yes I have successfully scaled to a couple more sources but the majority of alternative sources I wasn't able to get the campaigns even close to profitable. The traffic quality of sources varies A LOT - even with proper optimisation and blacklisting, it's interesting.

    Sorry mate, I can't divulge that information. Finding an adult source depends a lot on your particular ad format and type of offer. It's hard to find good quality adult traffic which advertisers are happy with.

    A decent day today so far. I have gotten a particular campaign profitable on another source which is giving a nice portion of volume. I have also managed to almost double my previous average ROI recently which is a definite plus.

    Here's some stats from today so far:

    I am guessing leadgen is a good way to generate profits especially on mobile traffic. I see that you're targetting my countries ;). Denmark and Sweden haha! By Sweeps do you mean cc submit?

    Haha! Yeah definitely. I mostly do SOI and DOI sweepstakes offers but have tried my hand at some CC submits recently but find that pops aren't the best for promoting CC submit offers to be honest. I'm sure one could play around with different traffic sources and variations to make it work though.
