I’ve said it once or twice before, the biggest trend this year at shows, and private meetups alike is crypto… and this is just the start!! You are not too late to join the money makin’ train! A shitload of affiliates small and large are investing into crypto and making a killing!
This shouldn’t come to anyone’s surprise, similar to affiliate marketing, it’s possible to make great money online with cryptocurrency investing and trading. And the industry itself is becoming hard to ignore with a global market cap currently over $218,917,644,335. (that is 218 x 1 BILLLLLLLLION dollars like Dr Evil would say)
It makes sense that a ton of affiliates are diving into the crypto scene left and right. The truth is most affiliates aren’t really passionate about marketing, they’re passionate about making money online and the benefits that come along with it like:
Making good money
Being their own boss
Working their own hours
Traveling the world
I can easily say that about half the affiliates I know personally have at least some vested interest in cryptocurrencies, many even going “all in” and turning it into a full time venture, and abandoning the cloaking train and saying goodbye to FB bans and the account hassle!
But like anything else, if it was easy then anyone could do it and everyone would be rich. The digital currency markets may seem bullish and everyone may seem like a genius investor in a bullish market, but for every story you hear about someone retiring in “lamboland”, there’s an untold tale of someone who lost it all.
Anyone can get lucky off an investment. But super-affiliates, professional poker players, and successful stock traders don’t rely on luck. They gain an edge.
But how do you gain an edge in crypto? There’s a common phrase on wallstreet, “Buy the rumor and sell the news”.
But where do the rumors come from if it’s too late by the time you see it on the news?
How do you find out which rumors are true?
How do you join the mastermind groups?
How do you know when a coin will hit the popular exchanges?
How do you get into the pre-ico discounts?
How do you know what’s FUD (fear, uncertainty, denial) and what’s legit?
Here’s the answer: Networking
Sometimes it really is all about who you know. Here are some good resources:
I am currently a member of several skype and telegram groups. Some are public, but PM on Skype and I may be able to get you in one of the best.

“I decided not to reinvent the wheel; I just wanted to improve the existing platforms and excel at customer service”
Alexander Bachmann, admitad CEO & Founder
Built on extensive customer experience and passion for brands, the affiliate marketing space has matured into a significant channel for driving sales for advertisers of all sizes, and will continue to grow. The platforms providedby affiliate networks for advertisers and publishers are, in many cases, the juiceof sales growth, offering measurement and quality assurance for both.
Hence, the next question is – when was the last time you went shopping around for a new affiliate network? Everyone has heard of the ventures that havebeen here since the 90s, but what about the new wave of CPA networks?
If you are an affiliate/publisher looking for a network with global top-paying offers, customer-centered approach, and a continued focus on building a high-performing and service-driven team, then I highly recommend admitad.
Originally launched back in 2010, this global network of Cost-per-Action affiliate programs has expanded beyond its headquarters in Germany by launchingsix offices around the world, with plans to further global expansion. These ambitionsare fueled by the fact that the network has enjoyed six consecutive periods of year-over-year revenue growth by more than 100%.
Another thing worth paying attentionto is the story of success of admitad CEO & Founder Alexander Bachmann. When he was only 17, Alexander Bachmann dropped out of school to set out on his entrepreneurial journey.
With just $27 in his pocket, he was able to buy a domain name and a web hosting to kickstart his dream.
Prior to admitad, Bachmann contributed as a publisher atZanox&Affilinet. These platforms are considered to be the European affiliate marketing giants. Instead of going head-to-head with Zanox, Bachmann discovered an opportunity in the Russian market,namely, in Cost-per-Acquisition (CPA) affiliate marketing. Fortified by his experience as a top affiliate, Alexander decided not just to create his own affiliate network, but to build a company with all the features and qualities the current platforms were lacking.
“I decided not to reinvent the wheel; I just wanted to improve the existing platforms and excel at customer service,” Alexandersays.
Today, Bachmann’s admitad is valued at over $100 million, with an annual growth rate of over 100%.
To note, admitad has maintained a highly centralized decision-making structure within the business, with Bachmann himself being the primary decision-maker.
This centralized model of decision-making enables admitad to move fast, make decisions without bureaucracy, and inevitably get the jump on its competitors when the opportunity arises.
As a global access point for clients facilitating productive partnerships between the advertisers and the publishers, admitad is set to provide the most adaptive and smart solutions for the immediate business boost, as well as help its customers launch and develop a successful business.
Promising Services by admitad:
Neither an initial cost of entry nor any extra pay to promote the offers to top affiliates is envisioned. Each admitad client is assigned an individual account manager; this allows to deal with all the queries (in your native language) and solve every issue faced by the clients in this field to optimize the campaign, including recruitment of additional partners based on the client’s criteria and admitad monetization tools for publishers;
admitad is known for paying affiliates before they even get paid by the offer owner/advertiser. It’s worth saying that the company’s publishers can have access to funds withdrawal even with the advertiser’s negative balance. Most of the affiliate networks follow a monthly payment schedule, whereas admitad has a weekly pattern. The company offers its clients a variety of payment methods so that everyone can find the rightfit at admitad via PayPal, e-payments, and Wire Transfer in all major currencies;
admitad has tied up for different product and service categories to provide the most matching advertisements for your site. The following are some of the categories, for which admitad has regular campaigns:
e-commerce – accessories, apparel, electronics, furniture and household products, sports, car goods, Chinese goods, and kids stuff;
services, including finance, food delivery, coupon services, travel, and many more.
The signing up process is straightforward; the necessary options are arranged in an easy to pick manner on the navigation bar; it won’t intimidate you with tons of terms and features, arranged in a clumsy way. When you sign up for admitad, in addition to having access to the many great features of the program, you are also provided with support tickets on multiple languages. admitad’ssupport team will reply to your ticket in a split second,offering the necessary solution.
admitad provides Asian business to expand into Western markets and works as an entry point for entrepreneurs eager to go East. As recently reported by admitad, Chinese e-commerce has already earned one third of a billion dollars gained from deals through admitad affiliate program. For less than 9 months of the current year Chinese sales achieved the amount of $ 310 million – this includes a total revenue growth of over 70 Chinese e-shops and their offers promoted by admitad. Until the end of 2017 the revenues will hit the $500 mln. The y-o-y dynamics is on graph below:
“One of the vectors that we have chosen for admitad’s development is really ambitious. We want our company and the instruments we have created to become a hub, an access point where Chinese e-shops could attract buyers from all over the world. What is more, with the CPA payment model which is transparent, demonstrative, scalable, projected – there are a lot of advantages. On the other hand, we see that many European and American products are in demand in China. For this purpose, we have established an office in China in order to help non-Chinese global e-commerce to enter the Chinese market and find core solvent audience there. It is important to us to combine these courses: to help business to sell, and buyers to purchase desirable products.
Indeed, the world and business are becoming global and admitad, being a global company, does its best to cooperate in that effort.”
Alexander Bachmann, admitad CEO
To sum it up…
admitad’s global expansion strategy is aimed to provide fuel for a continued growth and innovation in the affiliate marketing space. The platform has become an indispensable tool both for advertisers and publishers. It gains not only transactions but also an invaluable brand recognition, regular payout system with pre-payment options, responsive customer care team, various niche support, fraud-proof analysis, and customer engagement, while efficiently delivering the type of content demanded by today’s sophisticated online consumer.

There’s a lot of talk about buying crypto these days; and we are in the infancy stage of a new emerging industry which means there’s money to be made. Sadly most of the stuff you hear is all based on speculation; no one is willing to share with you the tricks and strategies to get going the right way.
Many people say you have to look at the circulating supply and market cap, look at the team behind it, what they said the coin is about, come up with a personal decision does this make any sense, you need to review who is behind the audit on the smart contract, do they have other projects as well, maybe coins/ICOs, is there a specific purpose a so called utility for the token or what not.
I bet if you are new to the world of cryptocoins and bitcoin, the above info just made your head feel like its going to explode. It’s OK TO BE CONFUSED! I bet you are thinking, yea I can look at all that info, but how do i understand it, interpret it… ultimately HOW DO I PICK WHICH COIN TO BUY?
I don’t recommend crypto for most people, because its way more stressful than affiliate marketing – after all its speculation… but if you do want to buy, there’s a much simpler way I used with great success thus far. I’m no big investor; hell im a newbie who until talking to a nice guy that knows crypto inside out thought this isn’t for me… but after getting the 101 i decided to get involved, for fun with money I don’t mind losing.
If you want a buy a coin, research it by looking at how many nodes are using it. WTF are nodes Attila? Node refers to a “full” client. A “full” client is a client that owns the block chain and that is sharing blocks and transaction across the network. You want to find a coin where lots of people use it and the market cap is undervalued because then you have a higher chance of it going up if you hold it.
For example, coin is valued at $29 million, but 10,000 nodes (wallets) are being used. That means, 10,000 people use this coin, and total value is at 29 million.
VS – a coin that has a super high market cap (market cap is btw, the current price of the coin multiplied by the total number of coins outstanding — so if there’s 10,000 coins outstanding, and the current price is $1, then the market cap is $10,000) — lets say you have a coin that is market cap at $29 million, but it only has 123 nodes, that means only 123 active wallets use this coin, and they control all of that 29 million. This could mean investor pump n dump maybe? RISK analysis = higher.
You can also check out https://www.cryptocompare.com/ to see what kind of social buzz, and other influence the coin has all over the place like news, websites, blogs, how many people are talking about it, this is like a SPY TOOL if you will on the interwebs pulling in lots of intel.
TIP: You don’t have to dive in deep and spend money right away investing; you can play a game.
Pick 10 coins today based on the info on how to find a coin I just shared above and write down in an excel the details of the coin, total nodes, price right now, then hold it.
This is a game, where you pretend you purchased these in real life, review your results 24 hours later, what happened and write down your observations.
-Did the coin go up or down?
-If it went up why?
-If it went down, why?
You can really learn a lot by applying this basic method I gave away above to build your own strategy and do super well.
It has been almost 2 months since Affiliate World in Berlin where I had the chance to meet a network that has their own Cash On Delivery style offers. If you’ve been following my blog, I am a HUGE fan of COD offers because they are easier to convert than your typical diet/skin trials. People just give their name, and number then the call center calls them to confirm address, once they do you get paid – easy as that.
I was super thrilled when I found this network, as they have a lot of variety of unique product offerings that are licensed in Europe on the COD model.
So, as usual I signed up and gave access to one of my media buyers to do some tests with them, and let me tell you the EPC’s were better than I expected, which helped increase our overall profit.
Affiliate marketing is a dog eat dog world; it’s no secret affiliates push the envelope, hell its a fact. You might think that awesome lander converting super well is clean of malicious code that shaves 1-20% of your traffic without you knowing, but you could be dead wrong and losing money.
We’ve been checking LPs for click steal code since the dawn of the dinosaurs (jk)… no really part of our internal procedures includes checking LPs for malicious code; today I am going to share with you some of these methods.
If the LP you ripped contains jquery, replace the links with the official jquery min links and see if that breaks the LP, if it does; that means you caught something sneaky.
Edit the source code of the LP in your favorite editor (like notepad++) and search/find window.screen. — this is super common one that redirects based on window screen size.. clean it out by removing the window.screen from in between the <script></script> tags..
Another trick to look for is, the location variable. Again, search the source code and change it to your own from someone elses.
Look for href inside the source code; this could be hiding tracker links of other peoples and/or redirect chains.
The getURLParameter is also a sign that someone might be stealing traffic from your LP, could be a footprint of a famous tracker.
If the src= variable is linked to some 3rd party URL, then that could contain code to redirect the user onLoad.
