WARNING: Do not use .mobi domains for your tracker!

I constantly try and experiment with things, test new stuff and we use different domains for every single major test we do, whether it is testing a new traffic source, or a mega global offer.    To make a long story short,   we decided why not try a .mobi domain for our tracker domain!    One very cool one was available, so I regged it and instructed my assistant to set it up,  and get some campaigns up to test.

Today I wake up, check stats and traffic source says 9600 clicks,   tracker says 5021 clicks – I’m like WTF!     I check if server was down by looking at day parting/hourly breakdown for the test campaigns – nope, everything looks consistent.    Next, I try and open my own tracker links from my mobile – and dang, I can’t.  Try my other mobile (its onanother carrier) and it works.   Holy shit, this could be it!

We setup another test, this time using a .com domain, and long behold it works on my phone and after running $100 worth of data,  the click discreptency is all within acceptable levels.    So yes,  expensive $370 dollar loss lesson,   let it serve you well – do not use .mobi domains for your trackers ;)

Living Dot Com – A Movie About Super Affiliates – A MUST SEE!

Sometimes I come across cool documentaries, and now I did –  Its a documentary about affiliate marketing & super affiliates earning millions of dollars per year.    Sounds cool right?

Let me introduce LIVING DOT COM,  a new documentary by Michael Bayer.   It sells for around $20 bucks,  so I bought it and watched it and liked it a lot.   It starts off with the real truth about the world today,   gone are the days where people were living the american dream, working their entire life for 1 corporation, or 1 factory.   Now-a-days,  only the strongest survive – ones who can think, and not just perform robot like functions.    

All those jobs got automated and outsourced to discounted labor bots in China and India, etc.     Sad reality but true – all fueled by capitalist greed, nothing is ever enough.

Living Dot Com explores this from the affiliate marketing angle and how things have shifted so much toward the age of information.    It’s worth a watch,  you can buy it at the official site here.

PS: Short post, because I hate writing movie reviews.   But thought I’d share.

[QUICK TIP] How to SPY on your competitors for as little as $5 per month!

Let’s face it, some of us are on a BUDGET and can’t afford premier spy tool services like WhatRunsWhere for $150++ per month.    NOT TO WORRY!  There’s a wayyy cheaper way to spy on your competitors that actually in my opinion can be BETTER than using WRW.

Let me introduce you to HideMyAss Pro.   HMA Pro can be as low as 4.99 per month and give you VPN access to a ton of countries in the world.   That’s cool and all but how the heck do you spy using HMA Pro?

It isn’t as hard as you think!

Here’s what you need to Spy!

-A phone running android (preferably android 4.1 or later) – I use Galaxy Note3 for my spying!
-HMA Pro — get it here
-The top free apps/games in each category

How to Spy on a Budget – Attila’s step by step guide!

1. Get the HMA Pro app installed on your phone, fill in your login credentials (user/pass)
2. Pick the GEO you want to spy on (ie Malaysia) and connect via the HMA Pro app to get a malaysian IP address.
3. Fire up Google Play, and look at the top free apps – download a bunch of apps & games preferably from each category
4. Open each app, and WAIT – it takes a few seconds for a banner to show.   Click it, see what happens!  Take a screenshot to document the creative.

TIP: The easiest way to take a screenshot on Android 4.0 and above is to simply press and hold your phone’s power and volume down button at the same time for 1-2 seconds.

How to make $50 per day [CASE STUDY] was just mailed out to the people on my list!

How to make $50 per day [CASE STUDY] was just mailed out to the people on my list!  If you are not yet subscribed,  do yourself a favor and sign up for my private email list on the top right where it says “Get the secret info on what’s working now delivered to your mailbox”

There’s NO ONE else online that shares EXACT methods on how to setup, and OPTIMIZE campaigns to PROFITABILITY.      In fact, most of the top bloggers today write about everything but when asked if they can talk about what really makes $$$ they say “I will not talk about how I optimize, or what campaigns I run”.
