Affiliate Marketing, Working for Yourself and ADHD

Here’s my Desk

I don’t know if I shared this before, but maybe I have.. I honestly can’t remember.   I believe I have ADHD.   My mind is always racing, I have a billion plus one ideas, and when I start to do something; in the middle of it I’ll get a new idea and I’ll jump and do that. Then forget what I was doing before it.

It was like this, until one day I was reading QUORA on how to control ADHD.

In affiliate marketing,  working for ourselves we’re pretty much free to do whatever the hell we want.  We can work 30 minutes, then go out for a run, come back work some more.  Hop down to the coffee shop grab a starbucks, whatever.

To launch campaigns, we gotta plan, we gotta spy, we have to talk to CPA reps, we have to setup tracker, we have to get all the landing pages together, we need to setup on the traffic source.  Shit we need to do so much, if you suffer with ADHD or something where you lose focus – launching a campaign can become a HUGE chore.

What I read on QUORA over a year ago, and have been using ever since has helped me stay ‘grounded’ so I get shit done, even though there’s soo many distractions (like let me tell you one… while talking to the rep, about what offer to run in geo X,  he might mention they are doing well in this one, so then i’d jump to see what kind of ads and landers people are running, totally getting off track).

This method I’ve read on quora, is getting an empty piece of paper (I use A4 format) and writing your todo list on it with a pen.    #1)  Upload Banners&Landers campaign from fiverr that the twinad chicks made  #2)  See if the ad I’ve setup yesterday on FB is approved for sweeps..    3)  Find an old database of email lists from 5 years ago and see if we can use it somehow   .. etc etc etc.

If i get off track, I have my trusty white piece of paper with my list on it, right in front of me.     And I can continue with all the sub-tasks needed in it.

Before using this method with success, I tried using WRIKE to stay organized.  I tried using TRELLO (which we use for my team, because I have a trusty project manager that is an organizational “Doctor”)  .. but for me personally none of this shit worked because I forgot to use them.

Anyway,  try this tip if you too experience problems with focus and getting things done effectively.

 

$1000 TIP: How to stay under the radar when creating fake profiles for cloaking

Disclaimer: The following is for educational purposes only.  Cloaking will get you banned on most major traffic sources.  Play with fire at your own risk!

Cloaking or thinking about it? Here’s a tip to help you farm better accounts!

Sadly,  with time policies evolve and we’ve gotten to a point where they ban you for everything.  Hell they banned our Bulk WordPress Sites company used by lazy web designers that just want to meet with clients and not do any work (just resell our sites for 2-3x the actual cost).    When I asked WTF is wrong with wholesalewpsites.com they told me “We don’t support your business model” – lol wut?!!    Anyway…  no big deal, new account and we’re back to promotions… but how do you get a new account?   And when you make one, how do you make one so you don’t get insta-banned??

Here’s the $1000 TIP

DON’T STICK OUT!  One of the biggest most important things when it comes to cloaking is looking natural for the ad networks,  that means blending in.

It’s no secret people are using proxies combined with different VPS’s to create phantom personas.      But they get caught all the time, because they leave foot prints or stick out from the rest of the crowd.

My golden nugget tip for today is this,  if you are looking to bend the rules a bit and want to play with cloaking make sure you setup your foundation right.     There’s this site I talked about before called gs.statcounter.com,  it lets you look up stats on any country including Browser, OS,  Screen Resolution and more.  Look at all the options, it’s insane!

What does this mean?  It means you can look up what the average person in the country is using, so you can make phantom profiles that mimic that so you don’t stay out from the crowd.

Why You Need to Start Using this FREE Traffic Source for Your Business RIGHT NOW?

This FREE Traffic Source is a must, if you run a business or you are promoting affiliate offers

 

I am talking about IG; Instagram, why is it better than Facebook?

The answer is – organic reach! Instagram provides around 30% organic reach vs Facebook that will show your post to only a single digit % of your followers.

That’s why I’ve made it a focus to work on growing my instagram profile, and I started sharing some awesome tips how you can too.

A free traffic source like IG should be part of your promotion arsenal, no matter what type of offers you promote, or what kind of business you run.

Here’s a post I’ve published a week ago where I explain how to grow your followers with real, highly engaged people. > Read it Here <

I’ve been publishing a lot of photos old and new and playing around with special tags on how to drive more likes and engagement. You can check my insta right here.

Been learning a lot, for one there’s an awesome tool called Display Purposes that will generate highly relevant and popular hashtags you can just cut n paste. It’s totally free too.

To drive traffic to my blog from instagram, I decided to get some templates made in PSD that I can just edit quickly, then publish with a relevant description, hashtags, and a link back to my blog.

James Van Elswyk said the best way to go about getting into new things is to hire experts from the start, so I decided to just go on Fiverr and hire 2 different people to make me these, as these guys (based on their feedback) done thousands upon thousands of IG ads; and know what colorscheme/style works best to get high CTR. Which by the way is uber important; because more click throughs = more likes = more followers and more engagement.
