6 Ways To Check The Health of Your Landing Page / Offer URLs To Ensure No Virus Scanner Will Flag It or Get You Banned

If you are running ads on Facebook, Google Adwords, or any traffic source for that matter. Doesn’t matter if its blackhat like tech support PPC, or diet, skin, muscle or white hat like VPN offers, or app installs there comes a time where your landing page, URL, or offer URL might be flagged.

This can have many cons, including you losing visitors to alerts shown by their virus scanners, or worse web browser like Chrome. Or, your traffic source detecting your site as ‘malicious’ and banning/suspending your account.

This is why it’s important to do some periodic due diligence. I like to look up my offer and landing page URLs before I get my assistant to setup the campaigns on the traffic source. And then, have them checked every week or so to ensure we’re in good standing. We also like to run through these checks if the numbers go bad really fast from one day another; it’s always a signal for alert.

[Very Important] How to Make Money on Facebook – The First Step – ANGLES

Angles are one of the most important things (aside images) when it comes to Facebook. Having a good angle can make or break a campaign.   Why? Because the marketing ‘angle’ is how you can connect with your audience. And here’s the funny part;  if you come up with what you think is a killer angle, it might actually suck. Most of the times, the stupidest angles I thought would never ever work, end up killing it and performing 300% better than the one I thought is the best.

To test angles, you first should dial in the best image. Start by doing 10 ads, with no angle, and see which one gets you the highest CTR.

Are you making this mistake? Facebook Ads

I admit, when I started doing Facebook ads 3 years ago for app installs; I made this mistake.

It cost me a couple thousand dollars and forced me to return to what I know best – Google Adwords. But since the algo update this March in Adwords; I’ve took a lot of time to invest into testing every single targeting option, ad structure, placement, trick in the book there is from a technical standpoint. I invested over $100,000 into data so it can do the talking for me.

Forget about guru products; most gurus make their money teaching you this stuff; but is what they say true or they just want it to sound good so they AWE + INSPIRE so you come back and buy their up-sell? You decide on that one. Read More

WARNING – This Is How CPA Networks Can Make a Fool of You

This is a guest post from FBQueen

All Facebook marketers can relate to the nightmare of not having any ad accounts to run on. You don’t necessarily need to be a naughty affiliate to get your accounts flagged. Many affiliates ask the question what flags an account and my main answer would be: your ads.

How!? People are hating no matter what content you’re running – for example you run an ad for a Papa T-shirt which is completely compliant with FB’s rules but you still end up with a flagged account. Why does it happen? When users don’t like your ad first they flag it, then they post a negative comment as they’re associating a negative memory or feeling with your image or ad copy. (for example some would comment, “my papa died -,-”)

This is out of your control, you can’t really predict how many people will flag your ad – which will eventually get your ad account red boxed. It’s only a matter of time.

Trust Badges Can Increase your Conversion Rate by 74% – Which One Should Use?

Some say this, others say that.  I never trust the grapewine, and you shouldn’t too because it can cost you lost revenues. One thing for certain, some things like Trust badges can increase your CR and thus make you more money on your shopify store are true.  I’ve used optimizely to split test this, and yes it causes a lift in CR.

But then comes the question, which trust badge should we put on our store? There’s tons of trust badges on google images!

Econsultancy did a customer survey; how and who they interviewed to get their opinion I am not sure, but they found this:

McAfee (79%)

Verisign (76%)

Paypal (72%)

BBB (37%)

TRUSTe (28%)

This was actionable data I wanted to test myself, but I changed it a bit and decided to harness the authority of Google. So I added the google logo in there as well and ran this targeting people who spend their life on Facebook using Google Surveys, and spent $50 bucks on the data and got 168 people to give me their opinion.

This is what the survey looked like to people that took the test:

This is what the results were   As you can see VeriSign still was #1,  but Google came in #2 followed by Paypal #3,  and McCafe was really low on the list.    Pretty interesting? I THINK SO!
