He generated $300,000 with shopify, took various super affiliate guru courses, and still not living the dream?

There’s an affiliate that generated $300,000. He took every course so far you probably heard of and many others you didn’t hear off and he’s still not making the kind of money he wishes (at least 1k a day).

This might sound odd, after all he took the lessons from super affiliates, who said if they take his course, he too can drive a Bentley, or fly a private jet plane or sip margaritas working from his laptop by the beach.

He went off on my latest post about my million dollar campaign framework; instead of blocking him (something most people would do, because they can’t handle it) I decided to reach out and ask him about his experiences.

What he told me was at the same time shocking, and also quite interesting!

He told me all these gurus take his money, say it’s so easy if he follow’s the system (like my campaign guide which I gave away for free) yet it’s not easy at all, it’s fucking hard and he feels the reason why he’s not making it is because he still didn’t see it from a birds’ eye view.

Whats a bird eye view? I know, so let me tell you. It’s when he’d sit next to you, and you’d explain why you click here, or do this, or do that to develop what’s called a foundemental understand of WHY it’s done that way.

I have tons of experience doing this with my team. For example, when I assign some tasks in my kick ass new project management tool, I always write a footnote that says WHY DO WE DO THIS? and also, potential questions the employee would ask related to the why and what’s. I’ve only been doing this since I read that book how to be an imperfectionist, because it pissed me off how stupid people are, and even if they know how to do something, they don’t know why they are doing it.

So I thought fuck it, I don’t care if they [my employees] will think I’m an ass, talking down to them like they are some sort of dummy (Remember the hit book series called __________ for Dummies) well yes, I started doing the WHY WE DO THIS for DUMMIES with my team, and it had a MIRACLE EFFECT.

Now they are coming to me, and saying hey we could do this because I UNDERSTAND the process!!

To make a long story short, I reached out to this guy and I told him, listen if you want birds eye view, if u want to sit next to me, and see how I do million dollar nutra campaigns from farming FB accounts, warming them, then starting and optimizing, we can arrange it.

It will cost you MORE than any other Bentley renting GURU course money grab, but it is the way we really make big money (ASK THE NETWORKS for a confirmation) . The ball is in his court…..

BTW: Out of that 300k only 50 was clear profit after all expenses, it was ecommerce – something he learned after taking a $150 dollar course. All other guru courses, no dice.

ADAPT OR DIE – Why so many affiliates are short-lived individuals?

There are exactly TWO still-active affiliates that I know of, who started at the same time as I did, back in 1998. It’s pretty hard to believe, because at that time, we were all members of a small private affiliate forum with almost 100 members from my country. Now all of those guys are gone, none of them is active in affiliate marketing anymore, just these two guys and me. To be fair, I don’t keep contact with all of them obviously, but based on the info I have, pretty much all are doing something else now.

At first sight, it might seem weird or even unbelievable, but this is one of the specifics of AM – many affiliates don’t last long. There are several reasons for this, some are obvious, some not so much, but you should be aware of as many as possible – in order to prevent them from killing your AM career too. Let’s take a closer look at the 3 most common ones, that I was able to witness during my journey.

The Panama Papers Leak – How Billions Were Hidden offshore to Avoid TAXES

So this is the biggest breaking news at the moment; the panama papers leak from Mossack Fonseca. News agencies have jumped on this thing like OMG; it’s the end of the world. When really; if we look at the structuring they are all taking advantages of knowing the laws in different countries to optimize taxes.

Newspapers everywhere are trying to say if you don’t pay the super high taxes you are supposed to you are a criminal. Why is optimizing your taxes by knowing the laws illegal? It’s like saying if you optimize campaigns and don’t just buy everything on CPM basis; you are defrauding Google or Facebook Ads!

I was lucky enough to stumble upon training materials last year on international tax planning from a university and learned how taxes really work and how if you know your stuff; you can effectively minimize the taxes you pay.

Google and Facebook both take advantage of this thing called the Double Irish and the Dutch Sandwich;  which in turn has them paying about 1% of taxes (if that even) on all the billions of profits they generate.  So let me ask this; newspapers are going crazy about Putin avoiding taxes on billions; why aren’t they involving the big fortune 500s that have their offices in Ireland – hell they do the exact same thing.

How to increase your ROI and save your ad budget on Google Display Network

Every pro GDN advertiser knows that mobile and desktop are never going to convert the same way. That’s why its super important to block as much as possible right from the start on your campaigns intended for desktop only.

To do this, you need to apply a -100% decrease mobile bid adjustment under the Settings > Devices tab on a campaign level.

Secondly, you want to click Display Network>Placements tab, and add in under campaign level exclusions for placements: adsenseformobileapps.com
That’s the two most important steps; but we’re not done yet – if we really want to maximize our ROI, and minimize wasting our ad budgets there’s one more step which is a must.

These are the SITE CATEGORY EXCLUSIONS

You want to click on a campaign, then DISPLAY NETWORK > +TARGETING TAB > Campaign Exclusions > Site Category Options and exclude:

Gambling, in game, gMob app non-interstitial, error pages, and parked domains.

This is what it will look like after you are done:
