Did you know your password could’ve been stolen?

I’ve been doing some digging using a ‘different’ angle to uncover some new ideas for some marketing campaigns.

In the process I stumbled on some security sites where they talk about online security. One of these blogs shared a very interesting theory on how Jeff Bezos dick picks got into the hands of the National Enquirer that tried to use their bargaining chip to extort him for financial gain. Well, in case you didn’t hear the story – The Amazon Founder fought back by exposing his dick pics himself in a blog post he published on Medium titled “No thank you, Mr. Pecker“; now the idiots at National Enquirer look really bad. WHAT A GUY!

This fiasco did one thing; it exposed how UNSAFE the internet is and the blog I found explains a theory that the hackers who stole the pictures might have very well used to gain their hands on it.

How many times did you use the exact same password on multiple websites, forums, services, tools, etc AND the same email? Chances are it’s pretty high right?

Most people make this mistake, me included. And this was a big ass awakening for me to abandon that lazy practice.

Want to check if you’ve been compromised and where/how/when? Check out the site called HAVE I BEEN PWNED

Jesus, my email was stolen on 10 separate data breaches and sold on the dark net! SCARY!

so did you check if you were pWNED? What was the result? How many sites have your data?

As you can see, mine is pretty brutal. I’ve been using a program called LastPass for ever and generate a different password for every single site I register on. When I started out 10 years ago, this tool wasn’t around – luckily even though they stole my data, I’m ok as I regularly get prompted to change passwords.

Anyway, back to the story. So the data security guy whose blog I was reading said that they probably didn’t hack Jeff himself, because he’s super wealthy and heavily protected. What they did instead was hack the accounts of his secret love affair. The hackers could have used a site to find all/related emails of this woman, and then look up in the stolen database archives her many emails and see if the passwords she used there would work on current services (as many people use the same password for their icloud, like they use for their favorite forum, and so on).

Very interesting to say the least; I am super glad I read this article and now advised my wife and friends (you guys included) to take care of yourself by being security smart.

How to Target like a Pro on Youtube using Google Ads!

VIDEO ADS, they are rising. Facebook pretty much made them the only ad format that works these days, I’m not saying that image ads don’t work anymore, but ever since FB went hardcore giving video ads more reach than say image ads… others started following suit and Google Ads is now a great place to run video ads on. They are cheap, and now you can do the 15 second no skip ones only certain ‘beta testers’ were able to do months prior.

Anyway, In this guide or case study – call it whatever you want I am going to explain HOW I TARGET OUR IDEAL AUDIENCE aka affiliate marketers for my company BANNERS&LANDERS that creates high quality, handmade safesites (not auto generated shit with crappy ass spun content that u get when you buy accounts from FarmerJack or SocialSolutions or SO FARM!) , landing pages, offer pages, and creatives like video ads and image ads.

So our target audience are BH advertisers, as we have a bad ass service for them that can help em make more moneys and not get banned super fast.

SO how do we target our ideal customers?

1) I know aff marketers are 25-45 years old, and male.
*there are ladies too, but they are usually working at CPA networks looking to grab you by the balls to run with them (no pun intended)

2) I also research their ‘daily uses’ … so let’s think… what services, products, brands, tools do affiliates use…

Here are some tips:

SPY TOOLS like MagicAdz, CPA NETWORKS like Adcombo, TRACKERS like RedTrack, FORUMS like STM

3) I also know the stereotype which is expensive watches+thailand+lambos

so to get my video to show to affiliate marketers

I created a YT ad on G ads.

One adgroup is targeting by keywords from the list I built above
Another AG is targeting by youtube channels (i typed in the kws from above to get YT channels)
Another AG is targeting broad by age and sex as well as UNKNOWN and layered with the ‘stereotypical stuff” and affinity interest of affiliate marketing.

So that’s how we reach affiliate marketers.

You can apply the above to any niche to get the lowest CPA.
