Spy Tools cost a fortune, let me give you TWO actual, real life prices: An account on MagicAdz, the #1 Facebook Spy tool I use everyday costs $249 per month after you use the forever50 discount coupon that will get you $50 off each month.
The full suite of AdPlexity that includes Push, Mobile, Desktop, Native, Adult, eCom and Carrier spy tools can cost more than $1000 per month AFTER the 30% discount you can get at adplexity.com slash iamattila …
And then there’s similarweb pro, where an account with the most benefitial addon, the popular pages option costs over $1000 per month!!
To have all of these you’d need to spend over $2200 per month. Trust me, they are very well worth it, especially if you are a serious affiliate that runs volume, you can make this money back in no time, it’s an investment in your tool chest, your arsenal to win.
But what if you are a new guy, just looking to get started? How can you get a peak into what’s working when your budget is so tight you can’t buy these things?
Well the answer is Andor’s Weekly Spy Session!!
Andor is an awesome, and very smart guy from Subotica, Serbia. He joined our forum a couple months ago, and has been VERY active helping the members with their campaigns and sharing golden tips. Then one day, he told me, I do a ton of spying to see what’s going on, would it be cool to share it exclusively with the community so we can have more discussions as to what’s working, ideas on what to test, how to make more money?
And I was like SURE, that’s a brilliant idea!! At the same time, I was excited, because I realized, this is a HUGE TIME SAVER for so many people. Especially because he visits each landing page, and saves a copy in ZIP and uploads it to MEGA so anyone can grab it, recode it, edit it, make their own angles from it.
Andor just posted his latest Spy Session, #8 (can’t believe it’s been already 8 weeks since he started this awesome post series).
It features the top landers from the previous week Crypto / Diet / Skin / Casino / Sweeps / Ecom – 8.11.2019 to 8.18.2019 – on Native, Mobile, Push, and Display.
Looking through his guide this is what I learned about what’s hot right now..
MALAYSIA, Crypto is killing, the angle Mahathir Mohamad Told How to Give Wealth Back to Struggling Malaysians is killing.
someone also modified the 17 year old buys mom a house angle, and adapted it for MALAYSIA (changed the pics, localized the story a bit)
GERMANY, crypto is doing well on PopAds over there, using a german guy and his porsche as the main picture..
ITALY has a new crypto angle, showing how a lotto millionaire (an actual one) invested his lotto millions of over 71 million euros to 10x it grant cardone style!
it has the link to download lander, and Andor also posted the winning ad they used to push most traffic to this lander via PropellerAds
in the world of weight loss… this is what’s new..
in the USA, Oprah is back in the weight loss game!! She reveals how her 2018 weight loss secret gave her this fab new look in 2019! Running on content.ad, with an ad that will shock you.. (it shocked me)
in the UK, a 4 pound weight loss solution is running rampant on content.ad using cartoon style ad showing change from fat to skinny… the lander is all about dragons den.. which seems popular in both crypto offers over at Media500 and diet, skin too..
Andor dives deep into more verticals, showing you actual winning landers and their ads and what traffic source they ran the most last week in his spy guide..
here’s skin landers/ads, there’s casino… , there’s awesome sweeps landers, WHITEHAT stuff like mortgage, and refi..
this post itself is worth GOLD, and he does it 4x every month…

If you are a new affiliate just starting out, you probably don’t have a lot of money to blow on testing campaigns and learning this interesting and super awesome world of affiliate marketing.
Maybe you are a BH guy sick of getting banned non-stop on Facebook and Google, and not being able to get any spend out of your accounts in 2019; so you want to try something new – something where you can focus on testing creatives and angles and optimizing, vs having to battle the accounts game.
Well you are in luck because in this guide, I am going to show you how you can maximize your chances for success running uncloaked campaigns on ZeroPark, and harnessing the power of an affiliate favorite, aka the rip n run method with data from spy tools!
The Goodies You Need To Do All This
Without further a due lets get started… just to be clear, I assume you already got a ZeroPark account, after all we can’t do anything unless we have traffic… hope you have access to a RedTrack account (or Voluum or some other awesome affiliate tracker), as you do need to track the zones, creativeIDs, campaigns, and many more important variables…
I also assume you know the basics.. if not sign up for an STM account here and learn em quick.
I also hope you know how to rip n clean landing pages, or at least got miro.netmarketing on skype, so he can do it for you.
Seeing What Others Are Running on ZeroPark, and Which Ones are HOT (and therefore, profitable)
AdPlexity is a great spy tool, it gives you the ability to see the campaigns by traffic source. Once you log in, you can go on the left menu and do this:
Here are the results, the newest campaigns running right now on ZP
We can sort by – Newest, Running Longest and Received the Most Traffic
In this case study we are going to sort by Received the Most Traffic, for the period 07/02/2019 – 08/01/2019. My theory behind this is if a campaign received the most traffic, it must be making the affiliate money – else they wouldn’t be spending so much on traffic on ZeroPark right?
We want to pick the campaigns that are relevant to us, first one is a VPN, next one is an antivirus offer, 3rd one is sweeps one. Here they are:
The next step for us to do what affiliate marketers do best. RIP them, and then clean them up so they don’t have any malicious code that will steal the traffic we buy on ZeroPark. If you don’t know how to clean a landing page properly, or get stressed by the process – talk to miro.netmarketing on skype and get it done by a pro.
One of the biggest and most beneficial features inside AdPlexity is the ability to see the top zones by ID and domain on Zeropark. So when you rip n run, you don’t run RON which is RUN OF NETWORK and lose all your money on shitty placements. Instead you start with a whitelist and only run there – maximizing your chances for success. All you have to do is click on the Landers we picked from above, and this is what you’ll see when you scroll down on the campaign page.
so, this is what you gotta do… when you spy, pick 3-5 campaigns that you find interesting, next open them up, and on the campaign pages, write down the zoneIDs for all of them.. these will be the ones you’ll target..
once the landers come back from getting cleaned up, upload them to the ftp, then setup your campaign in RedTrack or Voluum and get the campaign URL…
It’s been two days since the campaigns gotten approved, and now it’s time to block the bot infested sources/targets thanks to the awesome feature inside RedTrack that shows you these stats.
All you have to do is login to RedTrack, find your campaign, and click on Fraud Report on the middle menu
On the fraud report screen, select the SUBID you want to filter. In my case it’s SOURCES. Then, click export as CSV. Now you want to sort by Datacenter, and Blacklist.. and find the bad placements.
Using Data from Spy Tools is good, because they are usually the placements that work. That’s why this method works super awesome. One of the things ZeroPark does is upload new sources/targets every week to iAmAffiliate premium forum for all the popular verticals that work on PUSH/POPS/Redirect on ZP. You can grab them, run some clicks through them and monitor them in Fraud Filter inside zeropark. Using this method, you save a ton of money because you get the best placements that actually work.
There’s many great spy tools out there, you can also do advanced tricks like use a source code search engine online like https://publicwww.com/ to find ZeroPark footprints, then you can use a tool like SimilarWebPro to see what kind of affiliate offers people run on these the most (which is a lot of work) or you can type in the domains one by one into spy tools and see what comes up. Again a lot of work, but going beyond what most lazy affiliates do is usually the way to yield great ROI. You can automate things too; or just hire a cheap VA from OnlineJobs.ph and give them the tasks to research stuff.
This case study was about how to use spy tools to find placements that were proven to work on ZeroPark. Using proven landing pages, and offers on a traffic source is the quickest short cut to success. To get extra 5% bonus on ZP, use www.zeropark.com/attila – it works for new clients and old ones alike.
ZeroPark allows you to target by domain name as well. What you can do is create a list of domains you’d like to pop your offer on.
Here’s an actual thing you can try – in the target geo that you are running sweepstakes to win a samsung galaxy s10 you can make a list of every single online store that sells the galaxy S10. Then you can run a modified lander that you’ve found while spying that would be branded in the same name as the store you are targeting. You could say they are giving away an s10 for $1, and to take the quiz. Sure it’s a lot of work to make this for every single store, but hey, it could pay off if you are willing to do the work! Remember, do what and where most affiliates won’t go, and believe me most affiliates are lazy 😀 Exploit that to your advantage!
Tip #2 – You can use a site like Alexa to find the top 50 sites in a geo, and then just set to show your landers on those websites. This way you will be getting traffic from the most trafficked websites, instead of random ones. Alternatively, you can browse the niches on Alexa, and target groups of sites in different niche where you might think your target audience is. For example, if you run sports betting offer, then you could target just the top 10 sports sites in the country with your offer and see your CR increase greatly.
Tip #3 – When setting up campaigns – SEGMENT them. At the minimum, separate Android & iPhone into their own campaigns and if you decide to run Tablet and/or Desktop as well – separate those into their own campaigns as well.
How to Jump Into A New Geo When You Have No Landers, No Offer Pages – Just the Advertiser Direct, and they Take API submits…
media500 reached out to me, and said that I should run a new geo with them (pm your rep to get the inside info)
problem is we have no landing pages, no offer pages, nothing to send traffic to… they said..
but we can take leads via API…. (API which is how i prefer to run stuff, because it allows me to create my own niched offers..) SOUNDS GOOD I SAID!!
sidenote: i only go to lengths of ordering offer pages, writing copy, and testing new angles when i see an offer/geo is working well..
so since this is new, i fired up adplexity and started spying..
i found some landers, creative ads, and also offer pages..
i sent it over to my coder at B&L to rip, clean and integrate with the API of media500..
while he prepares that, i went over to namecheap to register a domain for my offer page
then i added this domain to my host
since i have full control over the offer domain, the landing page url – i’ve logged into redtrack, and added the offer, added the prelanders, and created the campaign..
when the coder finishes the stuff he’ll upload everything to the right place, then i can quickly throw it up on our a few traffic sources (ZeroPark Push, works dope for crypto, SMS, and natives)
and let the testing begin.. this is not a long post filled with blah, blah, its just a quick update to show you how we do things when we have nothing to work with. ultimately it boils down to how fast you jump when they give you the chance .. first movers advantage == huge moat !!
