In this step by step guide I’m going to teach you how to create and run Direct Ads campaigns on Bidvertiser. Not only that but many more things to show you A to Z how to make money as an affiliate marketer on this platform.

The biggest benefit of Direct Ads campaigns is you don’t have to setup a lot of campaigns to run effective ads that generate positive ROI. You can test a lot, with minimal work as the system is really smart.

Here’s a screenshot from the Bidvertiser dashboard. $163,460 revenue generated in the USA alone with Sweeps (iPhone offers). As you can see, not many campaigns were created and RON was the one that simply kicked ass. TIP: It’s always a wise idea to separate desktop vs mobile traffic. We will get into it below how you can find winning offers, their ads & landers so you can also make money or scale your existing campaigns to this traffic source.

What is Bidvertiser?

Bidvertiser is a Self-Serve direct Advertising platform which delivers highly converting traffic to your campaigns. Their pre-screened traffic sources are generating conversions for their advertisers.

At Bidvertiser you can easily find the optimal match between advertisers and publishers, thanks to their transparent segmentation.

You can laser target your campaigns with Geo, user agent, device, browser, ISP, carrier, subid, bid and day parting, and more targeting options.

You will also get detailed information about all the traffic you get, so you can optimize easily based on your data.

Automatic optimization, bid-override and postback tracking are also available.


Ad Types

BidVertiser offer you the following ad formats:

-Direct Ads

-Pop-under ads

-Native Ads

-Contextual Pops (Injection)

-Push Ads

As you can see they offer basically all the Ad types you might need.

But in this guide I want to highlight and focus on Direct Ads.


How Direct Ads Work?

Direct Ads are bringing you click-traffic from search engines, links and typos. This traffic comes from engaged users that were clicking or looking for something they were interested in, but the original content wasn’t there.

Bidvertiser’s unique system is able to grab this non-existing content and pass direct this valuable visitor to you.

The reason why it’s so good and valuable is because the user will think that your content is the one they were looking for.

For example, let’s say someone is looking for a specific product or service, and browsing through different articles, then he clicks on a link that offers him the product/service he was looking for, but the actual link or website is not working..

Then,  what happens is Bidvertiser traps this not working website/link, and redirects the traffic to a matching advertiser.

So the user clicked on something he was looking for, and he doesn’t even know that he is redirected to somewhere else, the whole process is super fast and everything is automated, so you as an advertiser can enjoy the big fat conversion rates!

And guess what… all you need is you Landing Page URL to run direct ads, you don’t have to worry about creatives (titles and images)


Why Premium Keyword Campaigns Better?

Premium Keywords Campaigns will get you laser-targeted traffic from keywords that have direct correlation with your offer, with amazing conversion rates such as 15% or more!

Using premium keyword campaigns will get you the highest quality premium traffic you can get from users that are expecting to see a landing page related to the keyword they were looking for.

It can be related to any kinds of offers like ecommerce, finance, fashion, insurance, loans, gambling, medical, and other specific brands, products or services.

To make the visitor convert easily, all you need to do is to use a good catchy landing page, with offering a discount or coupon if possible and enjoy the high conversion rates generated by your premium keyword campaigns.

Creating a Premium Keyword Campaign is very simple, you just create a normal Direct Ad campaign as before, just click on ‘’Add Keywords’’ on the targeting page, and make sure there are NO categories selected under the ‘’Categories’’ tab.

Then you can add keywords relevant to your offer, one per line, and that’s pretty much it. 

TIP: One of the easiest ways you can leverage the benefit of Direct Ads is to do a RON campaign for very broad interest / general offers like Sweeps & Carrier Billing. I’m a huge fan of smart links, so you could send RON traffic to a smart link and it’d auto optimize it for you, trick is to target less known countries. That way you will have less competition and cheaper traffic to make money from.

How To Find Offers To Run on Bidvertiser

The best and easiest way to find offers that are hot right now is by using spy tools such as Adplexity. 

adplexity

In affiliate marketing it’s very important to start out with offers that are already working well for other affiliates. That’s why we are using Adplexity. It makes our job easier by letting us see what other affiliates are running and making money with.

So I log in to Adplexity, I’m going to choose Mobile for now, but the process is the same for Desktop, Native, Push etc.

Just by logging in, Adplexity will show you a bunch of the latest campaigns running right now.

How To Run Direct Ads Campaigns on Bidvertiser [Detailed Guide]

One way to find offers or get ideas is by simply browsing and clicking on the ads and seeing what pops up.

My favorite method is to find the best performing ads and get ideas from there. To do this we need to set the date filter to last 30 days (or 7 days, whatever you prefer) 

How To Run Direct Ads Campaigns on Bidvertiser [Detailed Guide]

Then we need to sort the ads. In Adplexity we can sort by Newest, Running Longest and Received the Most Traffic.

So we are going to sort the ads by ‘Received the Most Traffic’, for the last 30 days period. Simply because if a campaign received the most traffic, it must be making good money, otherwise they wouldn’t be spending so much on traffic.

Then you can simply click through the top results and see what kind of offers are doing the best in the chosen time period. Find something that’s relevant to you and you are good to go.

If you know (or once you find) your niche and the offers you are going to run, you can use Adplexity’s filters to filter results and spy further.

For example if you want to run iPhone or Samsung style sweepstakes, you can search for those keywords to filter results.

Next we need to select the Country we want to target

Then we can choose from 2 Targeting options:

RON (Run Of Network) – No Targeting

This targeting option is good if you want your ad to show for every impression served. This option is useful for websites that need high traffic volume at a lower price and for non-targeted products such as general downloads, casinos, general affiliate offers etc.

Contextual Targeting

This option is good to target your ads by categories and keywords. If you have a niche product, choose categories and keywords that are related to your business.

Since we want to create a Premium Keyword Campaign, we are going to choose Contextual targeting to be able to Add Keywords and to target premium engaged visitors only.
