Top 6 Native Traffic Sources in 2018

Looking for a new traffic source? Here are the 6 best native ads traffic sources of 2018!

Things change so fast on the internet that the best traffic source a year ago might not even exist today.      Native is getting a lot of love from affiliates ever since Facebook went insane and they are banning web design companies among pretty much everything saying they don’t support their business model.    Like WTF?    Maybe this is why the FB stock dropped 120 billions of dollars after the latest quarterly report?    Anyhow…

This is why a lot of affiliate marketers are adapting rather than dying.

Native seems to be super popular for all kinds of shady and semi-shady ads these days and today I have the list of the top native traffic sources based on total ads seen in AdPlexity, the #1 native ad spy tool.


  1. Taboola

  2. Outbrain

  3. RevContent

  4. Content.AD

  5. AdNow

  6. Yahoo Gemini

I have a list of traffic sources right here; check it out! You might discover a new gem that will make you a lot of money.

Need New Angles? 8 Angles In less than an hour [TUTORIAL]

Angles, angles, angles.  It is THE secret to high ROI campaigns.   Sadly most affiliate marketers aren’t creative, or they don’t know they are.  So they fire up spy tools like AdPlexity and go on hunting for cool ads/landers then RIP n Run them.

Only a single digit % of affiliate marketers write their own angles.   Not to worry, today I am going to help you out a lil bit.

One of the things I enjoy the most is coming up with unique angles;   it’s my secret and moat I’ve been relying on for the past 10 years as an affiliate marketer.

Just follow along and after you finish reading you should already have at least a dozen angles to test and make extra ROI thanks to being UNIQUE!!!

Here we go!!!!!

My offer is a lead  generation offer in the swimming pool niche.  I know; weird but hey weird works!!

1) Explain what your offer is about in the simplest way possible

“Get your custom made swimming pool right now at the best price in Hungary!”

2) Features and benefits baby,  choose two features and outline what kind of benefits they provide.

“Your friends will be jealous and wish they had a nice pool just like Yours!”
“Taking a dip in the water will make you feel very refreshed on a hot summer day!”

3) FEARS – What kind of fear would people have that the offer could solve?

Generally people fear the summer heat; so a pool is an awesome solution to that.

“Save yourself from the summer heat, relax in the pool while your neighbors look on with envy!”

4) Come up with typical scenarios that are the most stereotypical things you can think of for the offer; the worst angle.

Imagine winning the lottery, all of the sudden everyone that you didn’t even know existed will want to be your friend.   Sounds good? Well get a pool, it has the same kind of effect!

Order Your Swimming Pool Now.  We are going to come and listen to your ideas; draft up a plan and show you in 3D.  You then decide what kind of effects you want in your pool, we’ll make the proposal.   You’ll then accept it, and we’ll build it.  After all is said and done you will enjoy it for many years to come with your family!  Imagine the happiness on their face when you tell them you decided to order a pool!

5)  Think of what someone might feel that doesn’t have what the offer is selling/promoting.    What are the bad feelings they would feel?

If you don’t have a pool, chances are you will have to beat the heat at one of the public pools near you.   That is DANGEROUS! Public pools are the biggest cause of skin diseases due to fecal matter and other scary bacteria in the water.   Do you want to end up in the hospital?   Get your own pool and stay safe!

6) If the government had to sell your offer, how would they market it?

This is a funny one, every time the government markets anything they support it through some kind of incentive, so for my offer which are swimming pool lead gen it’d go like this:

Order your pool by __date_2_weeks_from_today, and take advantage of a 30% CASH BACK GUARANTEE.      We are making swimming pools affordable for every family in Hungary.    Love, your government.

7) Think of the benefits of your offer that you are promoting, now think what would you say if the customer would ask you WHY DOES THIS HELP ME?

The swimming offers water so you can cool down in the hot summer.
-but why does this help me!?
Being chill, will help you be less stressed and enjoy your day while everyone else around you is suffering and dying from the heat.

8) Let’s say your offer is very limited; how would you relay this message to the person looking at the ad?

DUE TO MASSIVE HEATWAVE we have sold all of our fiberglass pools, except for 2.  Orders yours now and start chilling rather than baking in this heat!    Immediate installation and setup!


As you can see, here are some ways you can come up with angles for your offer may that be a nutra offer, lead gen offer, pin submits, dating or what have you.

I’ve been doing a lot of lead generation for weird niches lately, so doing the above 8 step guide of coming up with angles is always fun with my team.

If you are lazy and don’t want to think at all, you must rather just pay $100 to someone to come up with angles,  you can talk to Anglesaurus,  they will do the work for you – 10 angles for $100 copy writing service.


Affiliate World Europe 2018 Barcelona Review in Pictures

My favorite show of the year, just a short flight away was the best one yet!!!    Affiliate World Europe in Barcelona was A M A Z I N G!  Met so much new people and really loved the city;  it’s beautiful people and amazing architecture.  So much so, will have to return soon again with the family.

Upon arrival, we went to check out the venue and ran into a bit of problem; I didn’t have a pass!   

Luckily the technical issue was quickly solved and I was issued this beauty:

These guys did an amazing job at the door,  and I thank them for their wonderful work they’ve done at the event!!

I post on Instagram, so follow me here — when I saw that the COAT CHECK room was named CLOAKROOM,  I LOL’d and knew I had to take a picture.  Seems like people LOVED the pic was it got over 200 likes on FB,   as the event progressed I kept on seeing more and more pictures posing by this CLOAKROOM, as it truly is funny for anyone that knows what BH marketing involves.

After my photo session by the Cloakroom I ran into RUBY TUNES

people say looks a lot like the lead singer of Coldplay, Chris Martin,see for yourself:

Here’s a SEXY picture of me and Miro from Banners&Landers (you should hit this guy up if you need safe sites, landers or banners done in 1 day or less – skype: miro.netmarketing)

I had some meetings, and work to attend to.. but in the night I decided to go check out the ADVIDI party; which by the way was bad ass because they launched their new branding campaign and super cool new logo.  Here’s Petar from Advidi doing his presentation:

Turns out MATULO from the STMFORUM was chillin at the party too; here’s a picture to prove it!

Seems like AWE was taken over by Italians, everywhere I went, everywhere I looked there was one italian, or 5.   Here’s Luca and his crew, the guys that are solving the thing I hate most about ecom; super shitty products and shipping times using a new service called uDroppy.   I’ll write a longer post about their cool company soon.  In the meantime, here’s me and a lot of Pizza eaters.

As I was leaving the ADVIDI… I ran into the first affiliate from Serbia I ever met, Darko and his sexy girlfriend Lenka.    After we left, the rest is a big blur…

The next day started late,  slept in and missed breakfast, so Miro from and I went to the mall Diagonal, and found a super awesome Chinese place right by the entrance.  The food was DELICIOUS.  VERY fresh,  no MSG, and great service.  Highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Barcelona.

After brunch, we went over to the show to catch Ben Malol preaching on stage about bags.  Just kidding, he was laying the smackdown on how important it is to touch on paintpoints and use them as angles in your copy for ecom.

Before Benny’s presentation was over,  I got a surprise SMS that my HODLER buddy Mark Van Stratuum, the author of The Drug of Choice [READ IT HERE]   so I went out to meet him in the smoking area by the entrance.     This guy is super cool,  I recommend you learn his story on how he was advidi’s #1 affiliate.

Meet Dennis, him and I go way, way back 11 years… he was one of the first guys I ever worked with and he’s still as crazy as 11 years ago as you can see.     Can you guess where he’s from? 😀 LOL

I ran into Kroom the legend, turns out he started another company about chickens.  Los Pollos, it’s an auto optimizer for incoming traffic; so you send traffic to it and it will take out the granular shit and send everything to the best combination.   Awesome Name!! They were giving away test tubes filled with jet fuel as part of their promotion (yea kroom flies fighter jets, u can see it on his instagram) . Hope no one died!

Awe Woulnd’t Be AWE without me stopping by to say hi to my friend and super moderator AMY from STM FORUM

After the conference, we headed out to a BH meetup. I decided to lambo; because crypto= moon+lambo right?

When we arrived at the Grand Central Hotel, we went in and asked where’s the meetup they didnt have a clue what we were talking about but they let us go to the roof pool.  When We walked out, we saw families and kids.    We didn’t wanna stick around here, it just didn’t feel right…    Before we left, we snapped this picture tho, WHAT A VIEW!!!

After a private mastermind next to some great Spanish wine, we headed to the Clickdealer Bizzarium party.   The entrace was all smoke and mirrors literally, here’s a pic of us all distorted with two Romanian aff legends Emil & R.A.T.
The CD Party was off the hook until around 11PM when hundreds of people showed up.  As it was a small venue, it got so packed you couldn’t move and it was not fun.  We decided to call it a day and head out for a late snack at that time and then ZZZzzzz time.

Next day it was Conference time again.     Met up with my buddy Baseem who I’ve known for a long time, he was super pissed how ecom gurus on stage where talking about how to test products right now especially because all their screenshots and stats are from 1-2 years ago LOL .   Funny guy no doubt!!

Here’s my friend Luka, I’ve known this guy for 2 years he’s super nice Italian guy. He visited me in Budapest before,  and I was shocked to learn this uDroppy that was everywhere was his new company.

Right after meeting Luka, we ran into our main man from Advidi; Petar.  We had no clue but the guy is also Serbian (I am Hungarian/Canadian, but was born there in Subotica) so it was a mini meetup of the Serbian affiliates.   We will be doing something very special with Advidi soon, so stay tuned for that!

I’ve known about BitterStrawberry for ages;  we used to work with them but I never met Carmen in person before; I was surprised to see she’s not 2 meters tall. Not sure why but I imagined her to be super tall.  But that isn’t all,  I was more shocked to learn she and her husband own this super successful company.  Great job!! Her team is also really awesome, especially Adela & Sara!!

While on a smoke break with Miro from,  I ran into Olga from LeadBit.
We worked with LeadBit in the past, and they even had a featured post on my blog introducing their company.
She’s super nice and gave me this awesome world cup scarf!!  Thanks 🙂

This is MANU, the visionary behind WHATTHEAFF, the best daily newspaper for affiliate marketers period.  I wrote about WTAFF here, if you haven’t yet be sure to sign up to their newsletter which brings the best news and gossip from aff marketing every day M-F.  It’s completely FREE so tell your aff marketing friends about it!

Ran into my buddy Samir outside,   blinded by the sun light,  we’re both stand-sleeping.

AWE had a company by the name ZORKA mobi.   A typical CPA Network.  For us, from the city of Subotica ZORKA is a pretty legendary factory that polluted the area for many decades until it was shut down.    So having a CPA named after one of the most polluting factories in your city is pretty funny.

Stopped by Sagrada De Familia,  this place is so amazing.     Then it was off to the FB Ad Buyers event by my buddy Tim Burd!

On arrival, I ran into Lawrence, him and his partner run some of the biggest ecom stores in the world.  Always good seeing this guy, last year we masterminded about crypto at AWE in Berlin, then we all invested early and made a lot HODLING out for the 20k bitcoin mark!!

Look who it is,  Ben Malol!!  The super duper ecom guru!

My buddy Mark, me and Jason Akatiff owner of A4D and a legend in the space;  one of my blogging inspirations tbh.


Bumped into FbQUEEN, while chatting it up with Jason & Tim Burd.   She was quite the stripes.

Here’s Alla (Ella) from Adcombo,   a nice Polish girl that loves my blog she said and Christina aka FBQueen.

After AD BUYERS the word on the street was that the afterparty was at the W hotel.  When we got there it was a true clusterfuck,  the hotel had no idea there will be an event and they wouldn’t let anyone onto the terrace.

But wait,  Mark said, FUCK THIS MAN! Let’s just buy the hotel and have the party. So he went over to front desk, said I will buy the W hotel right now for double the price it’s worth just give me a bitcoin wallet! So they gave him a wallet, he sent over the coins and after waiting 45 minutes for them to confirm,  the PARTY WAS ON! 😀    just kidding.

I was tired of standing in line, and all the disorganizational mess so I headed for some comfort food.

And that was the end of my journey at AWE 2018.  See you at the nexxt one!!


The fake world of instagram

I’ve been focusing a lot of efforts on IG to learn how it ticks, how it works, etc.

So far I’ve realized, girls that show tits, and cleavage, or pose in thong bikinis get the most likes. They own instagram.

When it comes to guys, showing off with nice cars, and houses,  showing materialistic things is the second best in line.

This is so fucking sad.   If you are real, yourself you won’t get many likes on Instagram… wait, I am wrong, you will if its funny, but if its a typical picture from your typical life it won’t be a like collector of a IG post.

This whole fake it on social media got me thinking; most of the shit you see out there is fake.

Do you really want fake people as your friends or people who tell it how it is?

I am all about the people that tell it how it is.

That’s all for now.


Scaling Facebook Campaigns: 4 Easy Steps To Do It Properly And Profitably

A quick 4 step guide to scaling your FB Ad Campaigns so they remain profitable

It only comes naturally that highly optimized campaign that’s performing well at a $50 a day budget should perform well at $250 a day. Because why shouldn’t it? It makes sense; well it did at least to me a couple of times. But there is a deeper level to it that once you figure out, makes perfect sense and actually shows you a way to successfully scale up any ad campaign, not just linearly but exponentially as well. Let’s get into it.

The biggest trick to scaling is to think of your campaign as a marathon, not a race. When you set up a campaign, Facebook serves your ads to the audiences with the best chances to convert. Facebook acts just like a good gym coach and starts you off slow, with 80 pounds on the bench press and have you do it properly with high success rate. But being motivated and ambitious, you ask your coach to put on 240 for the second series. How do you think that goes? You can try it, and there is even an off chance it would work, but most of the time, you will struggle and eventually give up after too many fails. Well, the same logic applies to the ad campaigns as well. In the example above, there are four things, four angles of thinking to phrase it better, you need to change in order to make that transition.

I also write another guide on how to scale FB Ads quickly using 8 different adset settings; read it here.

1. Proper analysis and conclusions

Before you make any changes to your campaign, make sure you have a good understanding of the existing data. A great example would be a realization that your ads perform better in the afternoon rather than in the morning. Dive deeper into the CTRs, CPAs, and other data and draw conclusions that are relevant. Find the elements that are not performing well and optimize them. This is the easiest step of the four but you have to keep repeating it all the time. Make an informed decision and see how it affects your campaign over time.

2. Incremental budget and audience scaling

This is where gym comparison makes perfect sense. Slow increments are the way to go. When you can lift 80, go for 95 and see how that feels. Stick there for a few days and see if that’s the weight you can work with consistently. In fact, I would recommend going as low as %15-25 increase in both your budget and audience when looking to scale your ad campaign. Here is what happens when you increase your daily budget substantially. Remember the first audience Facebook served you ads to? Well, that’s an optimal audience for the parameters you set. But significantly higher budget means your ads are now being shown to the audience that’s not as optimal and the efficiency of your campaign drops. It may not seem to you like a big deal at first, but as soon as you scale it one step higher, you will see that your math no longer ads up, 1+1 does not equal 2.

Here is the way to do it properly

  • Increase the daily budget by 20%
  • Wait
  • Repeat step 1 (analyze the change; optimize the elements that are not performing well)
  • Wait
  • Not working? Back to step one
  • Working, Increase your budget another %15-25
  • Go back to step 1

This is a simple process but it makes a drastic change in your scaling results.

3. Optimization

I’ve mentioned this a couple of times already; optimize the elements that don’t work. Your ad campaign is reliant on a couple of things, budget, audience and of course, ads themselves. The first thing you need to realize is that no matter how good it is, every ad has a shelf-life. It means that it can only work for a set amount of time and then it will simply become stale, performing with less and less efficiency until eventually goes completely dry. Your job is to not make that happen. Optimize your ads by making adjustments necessary to keep it at peak performance. Test out different elements (background, font, text, video, whatever elements it consists of) and keep doing it in order to increase the longevity. Through this process, you effectively eliminate the segments that don’t work and make your ads scale-proof sort of say. It’s just like the gym as well, you have to keep switching exercises or just variations of the ones you are doing in order to have the best results.

4. Scaling up audience

All of these steps are coming down to the audience and one of the keys to successfully scaling up an ad campaign is a proper audience scaling. There are a couple schools of thought on the exact numbers, but I like to ballpark my target audience at around 180-200k for every $100 of daily spend. Once you reach that number, you should be good to go. Going higher is better as long as you maintain your CPA. Higher numbers also allow your campaigns to run longer as the ad fatigue effect is diminished. The common problem that occurs when you increase your budget is that your performance decreases because your audience has gotten smaller. That means that your ads are now being shown to the same people a couple of times over and that’s really not a good way to scale up.

Expand Audience

Facebook offers a couple of tools for audience scaling, but one of the best ones to use is the Expand Audience option. Depending on your campaign, this option can really make your audience scale simplified. Basically, FB uses the best performing members of your audience and targets more broadly using them as a template. A simple and neat trick, and yet so effective especially when it comes to products targeting consumers. Apart from that, this is what I like to do the most.

Interest-based adjustment

When a certain interest group within my target audience performs well, I look for similar interests and try to optimize both the audience and my ads to create better targeting. This is what I call the natural audience scale because it sort of comes naturally. In many cases, the expanded audience will perform even better than the original one just because you are now matching their niche with better efficiency.


I prefer fresh audience but have been stuck plenty of times and resorted to remarketing strategies like adding audience that already visited the site or is in the mailing list. And this works well if you have your original audience set up properly because of a simple reason; Timing. If your audience was optimal the first time but didn’t convert, maybe it was just the matter of timing and giving it a second chance could mean you successfully convert this time.

Hopefully, you got the idea how FB ad campaign scaling works and you can use these steps to successfully transition your campaign in the big pond.

Sagrada Familia – Construction History *WOW!*

I am truly looking forward to Affiliate World Europe in Barcelona this year.  It takes place in a beautiful city, home to one of the most amazing structures I’ve ever seen Sagrada Familia.   Not only does this look like a magical castle out of harry potter meets lord of the rings meets horror movies; it also is incomplete with construction still going on.   It’s simply amazing how this structure’s been in construction for over 130 years and towers over Barcelona as a true landmark should.  The following is a history of the construction of this beautiful masterpiece of architecture;   quite educational.
