Your participation and dedication isn't going unnoticed. I'm super excited for next week and i'm sure like many others are dying to ask you some questions.

    So, let's get to know the man behind the blog a little better shall we?

    Zac Johnson

    Zac Johnson, Super Affiliate Blogger
    Twitter: www.twitter.com/moneyreign
    Blog: www.zacjohnson.com

    Welcome Zac, so for many of our members (including myself) you will be someone we’ve looked up to over the past few years, but for those who don’t know what you do please give us a little background.

    Thanks Oliver, great to be here and to connect with everyone on the forum! It's also greatly appreciated to always hear from and meet readers of the blog over the years. For anyone who isn't familiar with my past, I've been making money online for 18 years now. I first started making money online when I was 14 and in high school. As for blogging, I started ZacJohnson.com on St.Patrick's day of 2007. It's always good to start something on a holiday or a unique date, as you won't forget your launch date! :p

    Getting back to how I first started making money online, you can imagine it's been quite a journey over the past decade-plus. You can read the long version on my about me page, but I'll give you my own little synopsis here as well. I've always had a passion for business, even at a very young age. In elementary school I would sell sports cards to other students and in middle school I would sell cans of soda during lunch. Excellent sources of income for a kid I must say!

    These were quite the fun times, but at the same time I was also training myself for what I would be doing for the rest of my life. As a freshman/sophomore in high school I started playing around with the internet and made some fun hobby sites of my own. I started thinking that there must be a way to make money with all of this. So that is where my mission had started... and so my journey started to find new and exciting ways to make money online.

    After trying a few different things in the mid to late 90s (penny click banners, web hosting affiliate programs, in-browser banner ads (AllAdvantage) and many others), I started playing around with the idea to create celebrity content web sites. These sites started to rank pretty well in the search results and I was getting a lot of free traffic.

    After trying out all of these different ways to make money online I eventually came across the Amazon.com associates program. This was back when they were only selling books, music and movies. So I became an associate of their site and added all of their celebrity products to my sites. Whenever I sent them a sale through my site, I would earn a commission.

    Long story short... I ended up doing six figures in sales with Amazon.com in a short period of time.

    I then came across an affiliate network called WebSponsors, which had a bunch of free offers on their sites. Instead of having to get someone to pull out a credit card and spend $20 to make a $1 commission, I could just get someone to fill out a form to win a contest or request a free sample and get $1 instead.

    This was when I truly found out about the money that can be made in the affiliate marketing business. Over the next several years I would grow out all of my content sites and expands into the free stuff niche. This lead into creating my own mailing lists, three merchant/affiliate programs and flying out to Commission Junction University (I was using CJ for my affiliate sites and to run my own programs) where I attended my first affiliate marketing conference at 18 and all of this was before 2001.
    So you mentioned your blog, is it your main focus or what other companies and or businesses do you run?

    It's quite funny. I look back at the first question of this interview and I only covered just the first few years of how and when I started making money online. It was an amazing journey and that was only in a few years of time. I started my blog in 2007 and I could almost write a whole book on all of the experiences and positive opportunities that have come out of it. Yes, today the blog is a huge focus of mine and with all of the experience and past history I have with internet and affiliate marketing, expanding into my own brand of "Zac Johnson" has been one of the best decisions I've made.

    In addition to running ZacJohnson.com I also run a few other sites and am also on the Board of Advisors and the Brand Manager for Brand.com, which focuses on reputation management.
    When did you start your blog and would you advise other to start one?

    As mentioned, I started my blog in 2007 and it's been one of the best decisions I've made. I would advise everyone to start a blog of their own. It doesn't matter if you are just blogging for fun, learning how to get something going on the internet or trying to be the next authority in your niche... it can all get started through the use of a blog.

    I actually wanted to start a blog a couple years earlier, but just never got around to doing it. Blogging started getting more popular and people kept telling me how cool it would be if I made a blog and shared my stories and everything else... so I finally did.

    Bloggers like John Chow and ShoeMoney also made the process a lot more interesting. Seeing other people finding success through their blog was the ultimate motivation. Since launching the blog I've made some amazing contacts and have been able to reach thousands of new readers every year. This simply wouldn't have been possible with out the blog.
    How long did it take for you to become profitable online and how did you build up the money to start?

    Let's jump all the way back to question one again and how I first got started. There are a few things that are important to point out here. I was a kid in high school, living in my parents house and never had a "real" job in my life.

    With that said, I started making money on the internet with nothing (besides a computer). I was even so cheap (money conscious) that I would use free AOL disks and cancel after the free 30/60 day trials then sign up for a new account so I didn't have any costs. All of the sites I made for pushing Amazon.com and affiliate offers was through free sites from AOL members pages, Geocities and other free hosting services. It wasn't til around 1998 that I actually ordered my first real domain name and got shared hosting. So to answer your question... no, I didn't have any upfront money to start my business and everything I did make, I kept putting back into the business to grow it into what it has become today.

    The internet is the most amazing opportunity ever for someone looking to start a business. Local and retail businesses are doomed and once you start one, you are already in debt.
    What does it cost to start an internet company? Literally nothing. $10 for a domain name and $10 a month for hosting. Throw up a Wordpress site for free and you are done. The rest is up to you and spending your time to come up with something amazing.
    When did you get into affiliate marketing and how?

    Looks like I covered a lot of this in the first question as well, but I will go back and cover some other fun times as well. When I first joined a couple affiliate networks (back in late 90s), there were only a handful of offers available. "Affiliate Marketing" was something that was completely new and barely any web sites had an affiliate program and big brand also wanted nothing to do with the concept. They simply didn't understand.

    At this time there were probably only a few ad networks even created. A few others I remember were OnResponse, WebSponsors, Commission Junction and ShareaSale was just getting started around this time as well. Back then Yahoo was also the search engine of choice!
    As time went on, affiliate marketing just kept getting bigger and "secretly" was making a lot of people and businesses a lot of money. Just look at Amazon.com. They never would have become the powerhouse they are today if they weren't one of the first to actually create the concept of affiliate marketing with their site.

    While I first started out the CPS (cost per sale) type of affiliate marketing with Amazon.com, my favorite offers have always been CPA (cost per action) as you don't always need to get the end user to pull out a credit card.

    How much of a role HAS affiliate marketing played in your recent years and do you still market as an affiliate?

    Affiliate marketing is still my core and will probably always be what I'm known for, but my focus has changed a lot over the past several years. Affiliate marketing is awesome and it's always going to be a legitimate way to make a lot of money on the internet, but at the same time you are making money for someone else and also building their company and database for a one time payment.

    This is why I have been focusing a lot of effort on building out my own sites and brands. I'm the actual product and brand. No one can take that away from me. No ad network going out of business, Google algorithm change or even the collapse of the internet (which will never happen) can take away the value that I can provide to anyone or any business that is looking to improve their goals, reach and success.

    I'm not saying this impress anyone, but instead to impress upon you the real value that lies within being an authority in your niche. Being the best at what you do is a very good business model. It all started out with affiliate marketing, but being able to adapt and change my business over the past 18 years is what matters most. Affiliate marketing is still a huge part of my business today, whether that means running ad campaigns, writing articles or starting new sites.
    What if any affiliate marketing methods are you running on a daily basis?

    It's safe to say that I will always have some form of affiliate marketing running at all times. When I was first getting started with affiliate marketing and wanted to play around with some ad spending, I used to focus on pay per click marketing. It was very effective an profitable, but would continue to get more and more annoying over time. This includes dealing with quality scores, higher ppc costs and overall management.

    One of my favorite areas to work in is Facebook Ads. It's amazingly effective and easy to zone in on any demographic audience and throw up a ton of ads and get an idea for what works. This also includes building out Facebook Pages and getting traffic to some of my blogs.
    I also have affiliate marketing working for me on a daily basis through my blog at ZacJohnson.com. One of the great things about having a site with great content is that is works for you every day and while you are sleeping. I wrote a bunch of tutorials on how to make money and build campaigns around Neverblue affiliate offers. Just through the blog I've sent them nearly $3 million in new business from affiliates. I get a small percentage for each referral I send to them.

    With over 1,000 posts live on ZacJohnson.com you can imagine there is a decent amount of people visiting the site for the first time and joining ad networks or signing up to various other affiliate links throughout the site.

    This is another perfect example of how affiliate marketing can work for any business.
    What do you see as the next big thing in affiliate marketing?

    There is always going to be something "hot" in the affiliate marketing space. Years ago it was rebills and berry offers... now it's mobile and pay per call. Whatever it is and whenever it is, there is always going to be a lot of money to be made. This is all about being in the right place, at the right time, while also sticking with ad campaigns to make them work the best.

    However, what I would say the "BIG" thing in affiliate marketing is when affiliate marketers are finding success and actually turning their results into a real service, brand, product or ad network. We see this happen all the time.

    Affiliate marketing is an awesome way to start making money online and it teaches you a lot. As mentioned earlier, who wants to keep making someone else money and growing another person's business.

    Taking what you've learned from affiliate marketing and spinning it into a real business of your own is what's HOT right now.
    Would you call yourself an internet marketer or an entrepreneur?

    I would say that I am both. I used to put "CEO" and "Affiliate Marketing" on my business cards, but now they just say "I Get Shit Done."
    To date what would you say was your biggest achievement?

    Based off one decision or web site, I would have to say the blog was the best decision I made. From speaking around the world, doing keynotes at conferences, appearing on ABC and FOX News, coming out with my own book, winning various top blogger contests and opening a whole new world of opportunities... the blog was definitely worth every second of the work I put into it. Another awesome site I made back around 2005 was a myspace resource web site. Long story short... I individually created thousands of HTML pages using Microsoft Frontpage for the site and loaded them up with lots of fun images for people to put on their profile pages. I don't do any programming, so this was all dead basic simple, but took a while to create... but was also fun at the same time!

    Long story short, the site went viral and everyone was grabbing free content from the site to put on their page. I had 16 dedicated Dell servers powering the site and the 100,000 daily visitors going to it. The site made over a million dollars in revenue and also did $800,000 in profit in just four months. That was a fun and exciting one!
    Next week you will be answering questions on AffiliateFix for our members, are you looking forward to it?

    Looking at the word count on this interview right now... we are at 2,476. Let's see what other fun stories I can come up with for your members as well. This will be very exciting!
    What sort of questions should our members be asking you and what’s your expertise market?

    After reading this interview you should have a pretty good idea of what I've focused on over the years and any areas you might be looking to get into. Feel free to ask about anything and I'll do my best to help you out.
    Are you a member on other forums and how do you see AffiliateFix benefiting affiliates?

    Forums are awesome and they are a great way to connect with people in the industry and learn a lot fast. They are also an excellent way to build a name for yourself and build trust with others in the industry.

    I'm a member of the majority of forums out there, but I really just don't have the time to get on the sites, read what's new and contribute. I do most of my work through email and writing.
    At the end of the day it's all about content and that's what you are providing through AffiliateFix.

    GOD Sends me LOTS of Alcohol, Get Offers Direct Review

    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.

    Get Offers Direct

    Get Offers Direct is an interactive media company and affiliate network founded by CEO Dustin D. Buysse. Now several years old the network has settled and started to build a fierce reputation for itself. Brining on board several industry experts and experienced affiliate managers GOD is moving in the right direction. Dustin's AM and regular AffiliateFix member Dwayne Morrison contacted me several weeks ago and said "GOD wants to send you some booze!". Um...excuse me, but now it all makes sense! Let's get into the package and see what these boys have to offer!


    Package

    Dwayne didn't lie when he said they wanted to send me some alcohol! He asked me what I drank and I was quick to tell him I wasn't overly fussy on how expensive wine is I just like to drink it. I'm also a big fan of prosecco a popular drink in my area and you can't but not love vodka! Don't get me wrong i've calmed down in the last few years since my drinking day (mainly due to the hangovers) but I enjoy a glass or two on the weekend for sure!

    It was a Monday morning and the doorbell rang when I was faced with a bloke from Tesco wine telling me I had "several" crates of wine being delivered. Several was definitely the case, I opened the door to see 4 boxes full of wine, prosecco and vodka! It was way over £300 worth of alcohol! I'm pleased to say we've only just started on the wine but the prosecco definitely came in handy over my birthday weekend. I think i've now got enough wine to last me out the year at least thanks to Get Offers Direct! Not only that but a few days later a nice custom GOD hoody arrived at my door.

    I'd like to personally thank Dustin and Dwayne and all those at GOD for the gifts!

    gifts.jpg


    Registration

    GOD is built on CAKE and is very easy to apply for. Although they ask you all the normal questions you can expect one of their team to contact you via IM or in some cases a phone call. It's not the hardest network to get approved for and is definitely a friendly group of guys to contact. It's easy to register just follow the link here and then give them a call!

    Dashboard

    Like I mentioned above GOD network is built on CAKE marketing platform so you can expect to see your standard dashboard. I'm not a big fan of the CAKE dash but it's very easy to navigate and find your way around. As far as I can see nothing extra is added in the dashboard for example tools etc and that would be my only criticism. You have the ability to edit your details, find and apply for offers and your AM contact details are clearly displayed.

    Offers

    GOD has over 11 pages of offers in which quite a few are "direct". They seem to specialise and focus on skin care and biz opp offers but you will find all your regular and popular verticals. Most noticeably are some great looking diet and weight loss offers and a few exclusive mobile offers. The network focuses mostly on the CPA model and definitely has some competitive payouts!

    offers.jpg

    Support

    I have dealt with Dwayne and Dustin now for several years and they have always been very active within the industry. Dwayne is a great guy and is regularly available over Skype. They have 3-4 affiliate managers and all have Skype/email in which they respond to very quickly. I've never personally pushed traffic with them but if I ever need to speak to any of them it's always a quick and smooth process.

    Payment

    They offer Net 30, weekly and daily payments depending on volume. They also pay via wire, check or Paypal. I have yet to read or see anyone saying they haven't been paid or have had trouble with payments but like I said above I haven't been paid by them.

    Conclusion

    Overall GOD seems like a great network with some dedicated staff behind it! The only down side I see is the lack of anything beyond CAKE on the inside. Call me old fashioned but there's lots of networks out there so I like to see one with an edge or something different to help you earn more. Either way with competitive payouts, good offers and great support, GOD is a good way to promote! Thanks again for the gifts guys!

    So, what's a KJ Rocker and how can he ROCK you next week?

    After the huge success of our very first affiliate expert week with the amazing Charles Ngo we're delighted to announce next weeks expert! Last week saw the Fix have a busier week than ever and over 70 of you asked Charles a question in the forum. Since the response and participation was so good we've decided to go full steam ahead with more affiliate expert weeks. We now have more than 5 experts lined up with many requesting a week of grilling on the Fix. This week it's my pleasure to interview KJ Rocker who will be next weeks affiliate expert. I've already set up his forum ready for next week, so feel free to get your questions in early by clicking here and KJ will address them all starting Monday.

    So what exactly is a KJ Rocker and how will he ROCK you? Let's see!

    KJ Rocker

    KJ Rocker, Affiliate Marketer
    Twitter: www.twitter.com/kjrocker
    Blog: www.kjrocker.com

    So KJ, some may have heard your a real life rags to riches case study, but let us all know how it happened?

    Well it is something un believe able , whenever I think what I was and what I am now it is a huge difference , I spent 5 years of life studying in a government owned school in my village with no class rooms or anything but teachers use to teach us under tress while we used to sit in mud , to get a better idea you can that was even worst from this picture, I thank my parents and specially my grandfather who then decided to move into city for my education and they admitted me into one of the best institution of the city where I came to know this thing computer and I fell in love with it , I always wanted a job related to computers something techy .. Anyways later on life was going great until a few incidents happened where it was do or die situation for me and I am glad I did it J . Now I live run a business here in Dubai and love every moment of my life and thank god for giving me everything I always wanted.
    When did you first get into affiliate marketing and how?

    I used to work as a call center agent when I got free from college after exams and had all the free time to enjoy so I joined call center to pass time and learn something new. At that time I really never cared about salary and I was working to pass my free time and to get experience however later on bad incidents happened in my life due to which I had to do two jobs but still I wasn’t able to earn enough money to meet all the needs and support my family and my younger sister`s education.

    As I had passion for computers from my childhood and tweaking with html/php was my hobby so I decided to use my hobby to make money and I quit both of my jobs in the times when I spend only money I had in my pocket on internet connection and started working as a freelancer where I worked on different website projects and also on marketing plans of different websites. There was a time (talking about early days of group buying sites) when I was considered as an authority over daily deals website development and marketing/Business planning, This were going pretty good mean while I got as client who was actually doing affiliate marketing and that’s how I came to know about it, and I kept searching on forums reading about it but soon freelancer.com blocked my account based on a complaint from one of my clients (I don’t remember the actually reason now I guess it had something to do with payments ) and I was again at point form where I started and I decided to this time give my 100% to affiliate marketing and applied in many affiliate networks and the first network accepted me was CPALead.
    When did your campaigns become profitable and how did you build up the money to start them?

    Well I started off with free traffic as I wasn’t even able to afford $3 host gator website hosting so I used free traffic and once I started making money from my free traffic using yahoo answers I think the first payment I received from CPALead was $30 , I invested that in buying domain and hosting and I created this site, And started sending it free traffic from yahoo answers and soon on next payment I had enough money to invest in paid traffic 7search that time I guess there was a special coupon Brad Stanley from 7search gave me and I got started with 7search . But to support my testing on 7search I kept working on free traffic and soon enough I was able to run a few profitable campaigns which generated good revenue for me at that time I already was working with non-incent networks as well and I can remember an offer called omaha steaks worked great for me and I ran it for almost a year constantly making money. Once I reached 300-600 /month budget I started testing PPV as traffic volume on 7search was not enough for me and ppv seemed that place where I could get tons of traffic.
    Why did you start your blog?

    I love sharing what I do, I always did but that time I couldn`t find anyone to share my experiences etc also I was quiet active member of a forum however I felt that there should be a own platform using which I can share whatever I want freely, For example I can still remember once I received an email from a network I never liked because its owner is a well know douche telling me about their network etc etc on my secret email I only used only for one network (that network is history you should get the hint who I am talking about lol ) so I emailed them back and asked where did you get my email and their answers were not clear enough so I did more research and found out that mailing list of the affiliates was sold to the network or may be networks shared lists etc so I shared all the details on the forum and within minutes I got warning from the moderators …. Things like that made me think to create my own blog where I can share anything I want freely.

    Do you advise starting a blog or does it have it draw backs?

    Yes I do advise and encourage other fellow affiliates to start their own blogs as this is something which helps you a lot with your campaigns when you are sharing ideas actually you are learning new things yourself , I personally got so many new ideas which made me loads of money while writing my own posts lol. Even if we consider the contacts you can make in industry that’s priceless and more than enough reason for a person to start blogging.
    You recently moved to Dubai, why was that?

    Well there were many reasons behind that, unfortunately I was operating from a country where you will have to pay taxes to the government not to facilitate you but to fill pockets of politicians and to make them treat you like crap, Plus the cash flow problems because of slow banking system and various other reasons I decided to move out, Because I had to think about my business I built from zero. When you are paying all your bills and taxes but government is not even able to provide you electricity even during working hours in my opinion it’s a huge waste of money and efforts.
    How are you enjoying Dubai and would you encourage more to make the move?

    Of course I love it and I will encourage other affiliates especially from Pakistan, India and other countries to move in UAE as it is tax free country and overall an investor and business friendly country with zero taxes. It is overall a good place to live and full of opportunities especially for affiliate marketers and internet related business.
    Do you earn money other than via affiliate marketing and if so how?

    Yes I do earn money by other means as well for example I have started providing internet advertising consultancy services to local businesses here in Dubai and I also I do a little stocks trading . However my main source of income is affiliate marketing and I am planning to buy offline businesses here in Dubai as well in coming months.
    To date what would you say your biggest achievement is?

    What I believe my biggest achievement is that life I am living today. I never ever thought about it and I think the I can’t thank Dear lord for his blessing over me, I have a freedom in life can do whatever I want whenever I want, Being my own boss is something I never imagined.
    What do you think is the next big thing in affiliate marketing?

    Mobile, there are 6.8 billion mobile subscriptions worldwide more and more advertisers are coming into mobile marketing and this trend will continue going up.
    Next week you will be answering questions for AffiliateFix members, how do you feel about it since seeing the success Charles Ngo had last week?

    I am very excited about it as it will be my first Q/A session ever and I am looking forward to it, I loved reading, Charles Ngo did a really awesome job and I found about his The Rise of Ngo series and I was very impressed and loved reading his series. I will try my best to answer anything and I am looking forward to questions from fellow affiliates and I would encourage them to ask anything they want.
    What sort of questions should our members be asking you and what is your expertise market?

    Well what kind of questions affiliate fix members should ask me I am leaving it totally on them they can ask me anything from affiliate marketing to life in Pakistan , Dubai or general internet marketing . My main traffic source is PPV so I’d love to answer questions related to PPV, however I am open to any kind of questions.
    How do you see AffiliateFix benefiting affiliate marketers?

    Well I have been member of this forum since it started due to busy schedule I am not always able to post regularly however I have been keeping an eye on this forum and it is a great source of motivation for beginner affiliates and all the credit goes to you guys. The best example comes in mind is EymardSiojo affiliatefix member, Affiliate fix has a big role in making that guy successful and what helped him was writing regular journals and then getting help from other fellow affiliates. Affiliatefix is the best affiliate forum for affiliates all the credit goes to Oliver and his team :)

    Charles Ngo Expert Week Wrap Up and Next Expert Announced!

    So if you were living under a rock last week you may not have known that AffiliateFix the number one affiliate marketing forum launched another industry first, Affiliate Marketing Expert Weeks. The concept that we invite a popular and well known affiliate marketing expert to be our guest for the week, and you can ask them anything you like free of charge. It's almost like having your own super affiliate coach, free for one week!

    Last week was our first week and the good news is that it was incredibly received. The first expert to get involved was none other than Charles Ngo popular blogger and affiliate marketing expert. Charles was instrumental in the running of these weeks and provided to be very useful in the thought process. We didn't know how well the week would go but I was nothing short of amazed at how well it went!

    I'd like to personally thank Charles for his commitment but you can also thank him here or in this thread. I'd also like to thank all of you wonderful members who made it a huge success and one of the busiest weeks on the forums since we launched. I told you at the start these will only continue if you guys match our efforts and boy did you do that! We now have another 4-5 incredible affiliate experts lined up to have their own weeks on the forums over the next few months, with others requesting the call up. Thank you!

    The Wrap

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

    Questions Answered: 73
    Total Posts: 207
    Thanked: 48

    It's pretty amazing to think that even tho Charles was on holiday last week he managed to reply and answer over 70 of your affiliate marketing questions.

    It's impossible to recap over all his answers but what I will do is highlight a few that we should all take note from and read.

    Doesn't make sense to me....starting out, why were you working from 6pm-2am?
    "How did you fill up those 8 hours every night?"

    Getting started with Mobile ?
    "In your opinion, what are the best ways to get started to create a mobile campaign that will generate profit?"

    What was the process like when you hit $1 million in 3-4 months.
    "Could you get into more detail on how this happened?"

    After building the budget, what next?
    "what are the simple steps for a Super newbie affiliate like me to do after building the budget?"

    How's Living The Dream DR?
    "How did you feel when you quit your job to become a fulltime Affiliate Marketer, and what do you love the most about it now?"

    How much time do you spend on setup when launching a new campaign?
    "when initially launching a campaign is there anything in particular you do to 'save time' and test the potential before spending time diving in and scaling out?"

    I could have picked all of the questions, but the above are just a few I know will relate to most on the forums. If you want to find your post or others answered by Charles they are now separated into their corresponding categories across the forums where other people can freely chip in with their views and responses. One last time, thank you to Charles who's just informed me he plans to stick around ;)! Cheers!

    Next Expert Week Announcement

    I'd like to announce our next affiliate marketing expert will be none other than, KJ Rocker.

    KJ was one of the first members to join AffiliateFix (CPAFix) when we first launched. He's a bright young affiliate and internet marketer from Pakistan but now living in Dubai. KJ started marketing and messing about online when he was just 14.


    KJ has since become a key figure in the CPA world, best known for his honest, no frills approach on his blog. Specialising in PPV traffic KJ regularly shares his methods, earnings and all that good stuff as he opens up about earning online. I've personally watched the transition of KJ from a young inexperienced blogger, to lately a well rounded affiliate marketer, business man and someone I call my friend. What KJ doesn't know about CPA marketing, isn't worth knowing and i'm thrilled he's agreed to work with us.

    We will be interviewing KJ this week but you can read more about him and his journey on his blog here.

    KJ Rocker Expert Week

    When: Monday 28th October - Friday 1st of November
