    AdClarity the Media Intelligence Platform pump up the volume!

    The following is a Send me Something review by Oliver Kenyon. If you or your company is interested in participating in your own Send me Something you can contact me or view more details on our advertise page here. Send me Something is an original and unique idea from AffiliateFix Ltd and is a great way to get exposure for your company with a unique angle.

    AdClarity

    Yes, the pun in the headline is relevant and you’re about to see why! AdClarity is an online advertising ecosystem tool bought to you from BIScience. In a nutshell, it’s a competitive intelligence system that allows you to effectively spy on where and what your competition is doing within the media display world.

    I was contacted by the company last month when they found our Send me Something concept and wanted to put together a gift for me. This brings me back to the headline, they literally took the volume and media in my apartment to the next level! Read on to see what the guys sent me and how affiliates can make the most out of this amazing tool….

    Package

    So when I earlier said AdClarity pump up the volume, this is what I meant. These guys went all out after asking me what I liked to do in my spare time! I told them I loved watching my beloved Liverpool football club and also enjoyed the occasional movie, so when I had two packages delivered last week I was excited to see what was in store for me. The first package, the bigger of the two was in a large brown amazon box. This was one of the coolest gifts I’ve ever received. Upon opening the box I found they had sent me one of the latest and highest spec surround sound systems. What better way, if I don’t have tickets for the game, than to watch it at home with sound as if I’m at the stadium! Wow!

    Secondly in a smaller box was the newest Apple TV, which was a nice little addition. They could have just sent me one package but these guys just like their tool, don’t cut any corners. I’d like to give a HUGE personal thanks to the team over at AdClarity for my gifts which you can see below.

    How Affiliates can make money with AdClarity

    AdClarity is one of the tools I use myself and always keep in my arsenal. As an affiliate, knowing what’s working and where is essential and AdClarity gives you a great way to find out, and more! I’m going to run you through a quick example of how affiliates can use AdClarity to find out what’s working on display platforms.

    1.png

    Above is a search I ran once logged into my dashboard, you can see I searched for the popular affiliate dating offer “benaughty”. AdClarity then allows you to search results via Publisher, Advertiser, Mediator and Campaign. For me, the campaign tab is most relevant for affiliates, as it shows us exactly what and where current affiliates are running BeNaughty.

    If I select the campaign tab and pick a random campaign I am given this screen.

    2.png


    Again, stating the obvious, but everything I need to know is right in front of me. You can see the landing page/final destination in the top left hand side. You can also then search via publisher (the urls this campaign is being shown on/bidding on), the Mediator (the advertising platform where the affiliate is buying/bidding on the traffic) and the creatives (all the images, banners and creatives that are being used on this campaign). Of course my screenshot just shows the basics but the details this system goes into are incredible. You can track frequency, how long the ads have been live, statistical share and so much more! Its mind blowing what this can do!

    Let’s click on the creatives tab,

    I’ve had to blur the images due to nudity, but as you can see above, we are given all the creatives used on this campaign, sizes, how long active and more. You can literally see what’s working and copy it with your own unique angle. You can also download any images and reports you wish.

    3.png

    Clicking on the landing page link from the second screenshot brings me up the exact landing page used, so again, I can get the perfect idea of what this affiliate is doing to make money from “BeNaughty”.

    To sum it up, this is one of the most advanced and mind blowing intelligence tools I’ve ever seen. This is just scraping the tip of what it can do and only focusing on the affiliate side. You can:


    4.png



      • Uncover the advertising activity of competing publishers, advertisers and networks and get an overview of their strategies and trends
      • Discover new and relevant offers to run on your current traffic sources
      • Find new traffic sources by becoming exposed to over 300,000 publishers running in 20 different countries.
      • Thoroughly profile publishers to see who they’re working with, which offerings they’re running and who their biggest advertisers are.
      • Identify which traffic sources, campaigns and creatives have the highest success rates for your competitors
      • Get a local perspective on your geo-targeted campaigns through high quality dedicated proxy servers
      • Obtain access to valid contact details of the people you need to close the deal, from the sites or advertisers that interest you.
      • Get real time notifications and alerts on your competitors’ activities and other relevant entities
    If you’re serious about making money from display or media buying, then AdClarity gives you a great advantage.

    You can sign up here.

    Thanks again for the gifts and this amazing tool!

    T-shirt forum addition for Teespring discussion and more...

    Here at AffiliateFix we always like to think we stay up to date with the latest trends and movements in marketing. It's no secret that the most recent marketing method to hit the affiliate world by storm is that of T-shirt and merchandise promotion. Teespring.com took our industry by surprise when it slowly emerged as a huge money earner towards the end of last year for many affiliates.

    Now although we don't just want to start new forums for the sake of it, it's easy to see this form of marketing isn't going anywhere and we predict it will play a large part in future of affiliate marketing. It's legal, clean and your able to promote it on all the major traffic sources with no problems (as of yet)! We don't see that changing anytime soon either. So we wanted to take the leap before any other marketing forum did and created the first affiliate marketing T-shirt forum.


    Teespring is just one of MANY t-shirt and merchandise companies evolving this new wave of marketing and we hope to be a good resource for affiliates and companies in the future.

    Use this forum to discuss, share and better your knowledge and expertise.

    We've also made some other obvious changes to the forum layout in the hope to increase interaction and quality of content on the forums.

    Please help us grow and make this new forum a success by clicking the button below and making a post or interacting in the forums!



    We hope you enjoy the changes, comment below if you do!

    LukePeerFly Expert Week Wrap Up!

    Last week Luke Kling aka LukePeerFly joined a handful of incredible marketers including, Charles Ngo, KJ Rocker, Zac johnson and Greg Davis by participating in AfffiliateFix's affiliate expert week. Luke has been a great servant to AffiliateFix over the past year or two and has just increased his value further by making arguably the best expert week yet! I'd like to thank Luke on behalf of everyone here at the Fix for his continued awesomeness, support and for participating last week.

    Take a look at the in-depth interview with LukePeerFly here. Luke is someone I really look up to in the industry and someone I know I'll be friends with and work with for a long time. Some of his answers last week were incredible and in typical Luke fashion, nothing was overlooked or half assed. You can see the full expert week archive including all questions answered by Luke by clicking here.

    The Wrap

    Questions Answered: 68
    Total Posts: 165
    Thanked: 51

    A large amount of last weeks posts focused on social media and Facebook marketing. Luke extended his exclusive FPTraffic discount offer to all AffiliateFix members and you guys clearly loved the tool as lot's was asked and answered. I'd suggest reading through all of Luke's archived posts and learning from someone who really knows his stuff when it comes to Fanpages and Facebook traffic. Here's a few highlights from the week.

    Some questions about facebook pages.
    "I'm happy I've inspired you to take action. There's a ton of potential with Pages and it's great that you see that."

    FB pages management
    "If you're posting good content you don't really need to encourage people to react. They'll do it naturally. There are things I do to help get people engaged with some of my content though. For example, I like to do giveaways. I just did one last night. It was a two hour giveaway (people had 2 hours to participate and then I picked a winner). Check out the engagement:"

    The Big Guys Fighting Back the Affiliate Model
    "Very good question TJ and you're absolutely right. it's one of the reasons this industry is constantly changing...it has to. There options that were there that are no longer available for one reason or another. A lot of times, as you mentioned, it's because the sources have outgrown the affiliates."

    Retargeting!
    "I use AdWords for all my retargeting campaigns. They have placement on the largest sites in the world and when you're doing retargeting you just want to get display. I need eyes on my banners so they come back to my blog and make me monies."


    Once more i'd like to thank Luke for his time. Don't forget you can see all the previous expert weeks here. We will be announcing the next affiliate week shortly.

    Meet Luke Kling of LukePeerFly.com, your next Affiliate Expert!


    Next week we welcome AffiliateFix super moderator, no.1 affiliate manager in the world, the guy behind affposts and FPTraffic and serial entrepreneur Luke Kling to participate in affiliate expert week. Luke is one of the most respected people in the affiliate marketing industry and he's answering your questions all next week right here on the Fix.

    Read our interview below and get your questions in for Luke!

    Luke Kling

    Luke Kling, number one affiliate manager and serial entrepreneur.
    Blog: www.LukePeerFly.com

    Welcome Luke, it’s probably impossible to find an AffiliateFix reader who doesn’t know who you are, but why not make an introduction and tell us how you found affiliate marketing,

    For about 10 years now I’ve been an active member of the affiliate marketing community. I’m only 25 years old so that’s about 40% of my life. I started learning how to build websites when I was around 13 years old. I knew right away that I would be building websites as a hobby for the rest of my life.

    I struggled to make any money from my sites for awhile. I actually started selling them to make money when I was in high school. I sold one of my sites to one of the biggest affiliate network owners at the time and that’s really what got me going in affiliate marketing and affiliate management.
    So you were an affiliate first right? Do you still run daily campaigns?

    I’m sure I dabbled with affiliate marketing prior to becoming an affiliate manager, but I didn’t really see the potential then. My focus was building sites, throwing AdSense on them, and trying to sell them. I started working with the affiliate networks and exploring paid traffic avenues and that’s when I really started to see the potential. I ran AdWords campaigns for awhile back when they were a lot less strict and jumped on Twitter and Facebook early. The next new source is always the most fun.

    I run campaigns pretty often, but I wouldn’t really say I run them daily. I’ve got a lot more responsibilities now and I don’t have as much time to manage my own campaigns. Whenever something new pops up that I think has potential I’ll dedicated some time and money into playing with it though.

    Tell us about how you got the job at PeerFly and then become director and the world famous affiliate manager?

    I was working as an affiliate manager for another network when I met Chad French, the founder and CEO of PeerFly. Chad had recently started PeerFly and was looking for some offers to add to it. I loved everything about PeerFly the first time I saw it. I’m a developer and I saw the potential with building a custom network platform, which Chad had done. The platform was simple, but very effective. The design of the site and logo were also simple, but very engaging. It was the perfect storm and I wanted to be a part of it.

    Chad and I discussed me coming on as affiliate manager for PeerFly shortly after we started working together and I believe it was probably one of the better decisions the two of us has ever made :)

    There’s so many affiliate managers out there, how have you become such a big name in the industry? What do you do differently?

    I’ve made it my goal over the years to take every opportunity handed to me and turn it into a win-win situation for the publisher and the advertiser. I’m very passionate about this and actually take my time to try to make it work. A lot of AMs are just there to put in their 40 hours a week. I strive to provide value because I know the more money that both the advertiser and publisher make, the better off I’m going to be and obviously PeerFly as well.

    I’ve also dedicated a lot of time into building my own brand as an affiliate manager. If I put myself out there then I’m going to be held accountable for doing a good job.

    A lot of people question why you haven’t set your own network up, is this something you’d do in the future?

    I’m not interested in starting my own network. I’ve worked hard to help get PeerFly where it is today and I can only imagine where we will be 5-10 years from now. I know that I can provide the most value doing what I am doing and that’s what’s going to yield the biggest return. Besides, what the hell would I do with all my LukePeerFly stickers? ;)

    Everything looks golden for you Luke, has it always been that way?

    A common misconception of affiliate marketing is that it’s easy. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy. I spent the majority of my college career juggling a full-time class schedule and what essentially was a full-time job managing every single PeerFly publisher. For my first 3 years at PeerFly I was the only affiliate manager and at one point I was managing over 30,000 accounts. I was getting hundreds of emails a day and my cellphone never seemed to stop ringing.

    I worked hard and now I have a team of people that work under me to help manage our 50,000+ active publishers. Hard work paid off :)
    Recently you launched affposts and FPTraffic, tell us about the two new additions to your portfolio?

    As I mentioned earlier, I’m a developer at heart so I’m always working on a new project. It’s more of a hobby than anything else, but I like to develop tools that I know will help affiliates in the industry.

    About a year ago I decided that the affiliate marketing news aggregates were not up to par with what I wanted so I created my own, affposts. I’d been using affbuzz for years to stay up to date with industry blogs, but affbuzz was dying a slow death and really needed an update.

    Affposts has a clean user interface so it’s easy to use and has some much needed unique features. For example, you can subscribe to the affposts newspaper and get an email every morning with all the top affiliate marketing blog articles from the day before (including AffiliateFix’s latest posts!)

    FPTraffic is my biggest and most aggressive project to date. I’ve been building, growing, and monetizing Facebook Pages for a few years now and I’ve made a lot of money from them. I even got a free trip to LA to be a red carpet because of one. There were a few tools that I knew would make my life a lot easier with my Pages and make me a lot more money so I decided to create one tool (FPTraffic) and then build everything into it.

    My goal with FPTraffic is to continue to provide all the tools and information needed to build, grow, and monetize Facebook Pages. I reach over a million people a day with my Pages and I use them as an example to show you how you can do it too and how you can make money doing it!

    I’m wrapping up development on a giveaway tool that will be added to FPT that will allow you to create and launch giveaways on your Pages. I’ve been doing giveaways with this same script on my Pages for years now and I’ve generated a ton of revenue and on a single Page built an email list of over 40,000 people. FPT members will be able to create a giveaway in a few minutes whereas it took me over a year to perfect the script :)

    How do you manage all these projects along side your PeerFly responsibilities and your blog?

    I have a very patient and supportive wife :) I spend the majority of my night after I get home from the PeerFly office working on my projects. I prioritize what I need to do and I do it. Learning how to prioritize and be productive is a key ingredient in accomplishing your goals. It’s a lot easier said than done, which most of you probably know because more than likely there’s something else you could be doing that would be more productive than reading this.

    Create a physical todo. Yes, actually write down on a piece of paper the things you need to get done and set aside time to do them. Once you start do not allow yourself to get distracted.

    If you’re really interested in learning about productivity and how to manage your time, check out Charles Ngo’s blog. I’m not on the level Charles is, but I’m usually able to juggle my responsibilities pretty well.

    So to date, what would you say your biggest achievement is?

    One of my favorite quotes is “happiness is the journey, not the destination.” The past year has been absolutely amazing for me. I’ve reached quite a few of my personal goals I had set for myself in college. Now that I am past that, I am setting new goals for the next year and things I want to accomplish by the time I’m 30.

    That being said, I think my biggest achievement recently and the one I’m most proud of is that my wife and I bought a home last year.

    You must get to see a lot of campaigns etc as a PeerFly director, what’s really hot right now?

    One of the many benefits of my job is definitely that I can see the trends in the industry and have some numbers to back them up. For our publishers, 2013 was a big year for dating. We crushed dating and a lot of publishers made a lot of money.

    With the recent changes at Facebook we are seeing a slight decrease in dating and an increase in gaming traffic (apps and browser based games do best). Our dating traffic is still pretty big from POF, PPV, and media buys.

    PPV is also being somewhat resurrected. It seemed to have died down a bit, but more and more publishers are driving PPV traffic lately and it seems to be performing pretty well across the board.

    What do you see being hot this year and what’s getting bigger?

    Mobile apps are huge. Facebook just spent $19,000,000,000 on a mobile app. Developers are paying $2+ for a FREE install. We’re definitely going to see more and more mobile traffic as phones and wireless technology advance.

    I also think online dating is going to keep growing. We’re steadily reaching a point where traditional dating is dying out. Some of my friends from college and high school who I never thought would do online dating are setup on all the big sites/apps. It’s only going to grow.

    Next week you will be answering questions on AffiliateFix for our members, are you looking forward to it?

    Yes, I’m interested to see what questions I haven’t already answered on the forum! :)

    What sort of questions should our members be asking you and what’s your expertise market?

    I try to dabble in pretty much every part of affiliate marketing because it’s my job to know and train people to know the questions that affiliates are likely to ask. I hope there are a lot of questions about Facebook Pages because that’s my most recent interest, but I’ll give my best effort to answer any question. If I don’t know the answer I have about 50,000 people I can ask.

    You’ve been a member of AffiliateFix and super moderator since the beginning, how do you see forums like this benefit affiliates etc?

    I paid quite a bit of money to go to college and learn everything I was going to need to know to get a job. It turned out that I could have spent most of that time roaming affiliate marketing forums and I would have been able to learn most of what I needed to really know for my job.

    There is plenty of information out there that isn’t worth your time, but as you sift through the threads on affiliate marketing forums like AffiliateFix you’re likely to read something that will spark your imagination or at least learn something new that you could potentially apply in the future.

    Here’s a great example: I read something about Facebook Pages in The Dojo awhile back that really caught my attention. I had been posting content on my Facebook Pages for years and never tried this particular method. To be honest, I had never even thought of it or seen it. A few days later I was going to post some content on one of my Pages and it just hit me: try that method with this photo. BOOM!!! 10,000+ Likes.

    I would advice anyone to join The Dojo now if they want to get a head start in affiliate marketing.

    Our industry is constantly changing. Affiliate Forums like AffiliateFix will help you keep up with the changes and ahead of the trends.

Not only is he the most wanted affiliate manager in the industry, he also somehow manages to find time to create amazing new projects on the side such as, AffPosts and FPTraffic.

    Luke was the first super moderator on the Fix and has been with us since the beginning. Over time his knowledge, guides and popular persona have been a key factor in the growth of the number one affiliate marketing forum online. I'm super excited for next weeks activities and have lots of questions to ask Luke myself. I will be interviewing Luke on the blog this week and you can learn even more about your affiliate expert.

    Luke's strong points are marketing in general but he really knows his stuff when it comes to social media and viral marketing. He will start answering your questions a week today but as always I have opened up the forum so you can post your questions as you think of them.

    Greg Davis Expert Week Wrap Up!

    Last week saw Greg Davis the super affiliate rockstar join other elite marketers such as Zac Johnson, KJ Rocker and Charles Ngo in hosting his own affiliate expert week. Once again the fourth instalment of the original idea by AffiliateFix was a huge success. We had a record number of questions being answered and you really managed to create some excellent and useful content on the site. I'd like to give a big thank you to Greg who managed to put some real time and effort into answering your questions even though he had a hugely busy schedule.

    If you're not familiar with Greg or what he does exactly you can read the Greg Davis interview here. Also if you want to catch up on ALL the questions and answers and even read into the previous expert weeks you can check out the archive here. If you participated in last weeks Q&A please leave a comment below to thank Greg. Let's take a look at the wrap up.

    The Wrap

    Here's a quick overview of the week with Greg,

    Questions Answered: 66

    Thanked: 15

    Most of last weeks questions revolved around social marketing or mobile. Greg was asked several times what he thought the best traffic source for newcomers was and repeatedly said mobile traffic. Here's a few highlights and posts everyone should read.

    What is a good budget to start out with? How to research traffic sources?
    "The main thing to keep in mind is with a small budget you need to promote low-payout offers. I would probably skip banner ads on a small budget."
    PPC No-Brainer buying + Landing Page = ROI Instantly
    "You will lose money upfront guaranteed but with testing you maybe able to get it to work."
    Do you still advise affiliate to advertise on FB?
    "Unless you want to cloak, make sure your landing pages are compliant, and it helps if you send the traffic to a Facebook page."
    Is your income spread across several campaigns and niches, or do you specialize?
    "Normally just one or two niches at a time, with about 10 campaigns in each."

    Life just got Easier for Newbie Affiliate Marketers.

    Here at AffiliateFix the number one affiliate marketing forum, we're constantly striving to better the overall experience for our members. Today we took another step towards creating the total affiliate marketing experience by adding a forum specifically for newcomers wanting to learn. We've all been there, new and clueless to what it really takes to make money online. There's so much to learn when it comes to affiliate marketing and for a newcomer it can be very daunting. We've all been new and had questions floating around in our heads that we were just scared of asking. Scared of peoples reactions and scared of being shut down, well AffiliateFix isn't that sort of a place and now we've even built a forum just for these types of questions.

    Newbie Questions and Answers Forum

    I'd like to announce a small yet vital addition to the Fix, the Newbie Questions and Answers forum.

    This forum will be the go to place for newcomers and people wanting to learn about our industry. No question is to simple and even if we've been asked it 100x before we will endeavour to answer it in the best possible way.

    We want to encourage the large percentage of newcomers on AffiliateFix to come out of their shells and feel they can confine in the more experienced marketers on the forum. I've always tried to push a positive feeling about this forum and unlike other sites online newbies are just as welcome as experienced marketers. It just now means you have a specific forum to ask those questions you may think are to silly to ask.

    What I'm hoping this will achieve is not only making the forums more active but will also enable us to teach and nurture more newbies into becoming decent affiliates doing things the right way. Often new affiliates can give up the game far to quickly due to misguidance or negativity surrounding our industry, we want to change that.

    We will be keeping the General Affiliate Marketing forum for the more experienced general questions and I will be moderating both forums to ensure quality in both. What this should do is also heighten the overall experience for the more experienced marketers as I will now ensure the content in all other sub forums is that of a higher level. We want to cater and bring the whole industry together in one place so this should ensure a perfect platform for moving forward.

    If you're reading this as a newcomer and would like to get the forum started, click the button below to ask your question.

    Helpful Member Award

    This award should go hand in hand with the new announcement and forum. I really want to ask and encourage the more experienced members on AffiliateFix to stop by the Newbie Questions and Answers forum when they can and help others out. Think back when you just started and would have killed for an opportunity to freely ask for help.

    I want to be giving out this award on a much more regular basis and I'd love to see you all mucking in and helping. We have some amazing affiliates on this forum some which fall into the "super" bracket. We see people like Charles Ngo, KJ Rocker, Ian Fernando, Zac Johnson, Greg Davis, Luke Kling, Jay Wessman and many more post here weekly. Lets all pull together and make this the best affiliate marketing resource online.

    Interview with Greg Davis aka Mr 50k a day!

    Greg is our first affiliate superstar of 2014 to take on your questions in affiliate expert week. Greg is well known for his no BS approach to marketing. He often is the centre of controversy, showing affiliate EXACTLY what he does to make money regardless of his competition. He’s most known for being renamed Mr 50k a day.

    Read our interview below and get your questions in for Greg!

    Greg Davis

    Greg Davis, Super Affiliate Rockstar aka Mr 50k a day
    Blog: www.superaffiliaterockstar.com

    Welcome Greg, so for most of our users they will be aware of who you are and roughly what you do, but could you please give us some insight into who is Greg Davis and how you got into the online world?

    I first got online in 2000, while I was in corporate sales full time. I got started because I recognized the internet’s potential to give me economic independence and allow me to quit my job.

    After trying a plethora of traffic generation techniques, from SEO to safelists to bulk email, I decided to refocus on Pay Per Click in 2006. After receiving mentoring from an affiliate manager, I was able to turn my business around from losing $100 per day to generating over $100,000 per month.

    It took 7 long years of trying everything under the sun before I finally reached my goal of quitting my job and doing affiliate marketing full-time. I knew I made the right decision when I got a 2-week affiliate check for over $60k, which was more than I had made in the previous YEAR from my job.

    In 2009, I surfaced from the affiliate marketing underground to start the SuperAffiliateRockstar.com private coaching program, and my clients have generated upwards of $100K per day. In addition to PPC, I’ve become a specialist in many forms of paid traffic, including Facebook, PPV, media buys, and banner advertising.

    Greg Davis is real. I don’t pull punches when it comes to telling it like it is, and I tell my clients exactly how the money is made. No holding back.

    A lot of people in this industry hoard knowledge, thinking that helping someone else is going to take away from them. I believe in abundance. There’s enough out here for all of us. Obviously I don’t advise going around outing your campaigns, but I see nothing wrong with sharing the knowledge.
    When did you first get into affiliate marketing and how?

    Back in 2000, and basically because it was the easiest way to make money right away. I started by buying PPC traffic from GoTo.com, which later became Overture which later became Yahoo Search Marketing.

    Some may see you as a controversial figure in the industry with your no BS approach, rockstar lifestyle and altercations you’ve gotten into in the past, would you say that’s just you being real or how do you feel about it?

    One of my mottos is work hard – play hard. So I have a lot fun traveling, drinking, and partying like a rock star. But I also have a wife and 2 young kids so I’m a family man first. My wife parties with me most of the time lol!

    Like I said earlier, I’m a real person, and I stay true to myself. Also, I’m an OG in this industry (I’ll be 42 next month), so I really don’t have time for the games that some of these less mature clowns and trolls play in our industry. Life is too short to take shit off of anybody.

    It’s funny that they talk all kinds of shit in groups and forums but at the shows I never see them, and if I do they’re all smiles and kissing my ass.

    I love my haters though. Seems like the more I have the more money I make so bring them on. In all seriousness though, if you don’t have haters you aren’t doing much in this life.
    What would you say you’re most known for and how have you become such a big name in the industry?

    Best known for loving Patron tequila, and just for being real. What you see is what you get.

    I’ve become well known by giving of myself and my knowledge. I’ve done tons of free webinars that have literally made the attendees millions of dollars. Millionaires have literally been created by following my teaching and training. My man Andy says Greg Davis makes more millionaires than the lotto lol.

    I’m also known for practicing what I preach. I’m not one of these guys that teach other people but don’t do it myself – I’ve made 7-figures in affiliate commissions every year since 2007.

    So you mention super affiliate rockstars, can you tell us a little bit more about it and also your network?
    I have a small, private CPA network called Rockstar Alliance Media but we’re currently not accepting new publishers

    Mr 50k a day, where did the name come from and is it really true?

    Back in 2009 during my first $1M+ month, there was a week where I was over $50k every day. Someone called me Mr. $50k a day and it kind of stuck.

    I’ve been pretty transparent with the fact that unfortunately I do not make $50k consistently every day. $50k is a good day for me. $100k+ is a great day and I’ve had quite a few of those, and less than $10k is a bad day.
    Has it always been a positive journey for you Greg or what if any mistakes have you made along the way and how would you advise others doing similar?

    Ha ha. No journey is always positive and I’ve made my share of mistakes. Cash flow is a big one. Get all the credit cards and lines of credit you can so you won’t run out of money to buy traffic.

    The main thing is don’t give up. Clearly define your dream, and never quit until you achieve it. Most affiliates give up way too easy.
    What affiliate marketing methods and campaigns do you run on a day to day basis?

    Mostly all paid traffic – Facebook, Adwords, media buys, mobile, PPV. Mostly run consumer based CPA offers and lead gen.
    How have you seen the industry change and what do you think is going to happen in 2014 and moving forward?

    Man I’ve seen it all from very few CPA networks, to a huge number of them, to a strong few like we have now. I’ve also seen many affiliates become advertisers, and I think that trend will continue. I think we’ll continue to see a huge increase in everything mobile.
    To date what would you say is your biggest achievement?

    My first million dollar+ month back in 2009.
    Next week you will be answering questions on AffiliateFix for our members, are you looking forward to it?

    Most def!
    What sort of questions should our members be asking you and what’s your expertise market?

    Anything paid traffic, scaling campaigns, testing, conversion, ads – hit me.
    Are you a member on other forums or programs and how do you see AffiliateFix benefiting affiliates?

    I’m in Stack That Money and Adult Media Buying private forums. I also like AffiliateFix. Oliver knows his stuff and has a great network in the industry, and passes that wisdom to his readers every week.
