Choosing an offer. The unknown territory
I’ve never had experience working with neither a Dating offer nor a CPL model, but I heard that this combination can be extremely profitable if you play your cards right. I stumbled upon an offer from TopOffers and ProfitSocial and chose to work with EvaDav. I was positive that their traffic and Push Notifications will do perfectly for me.
First thing I did was talking to my friends and colleagues who are more knowledgeable about this combination. Knowing all the common pitfalls before I started working was crucial for me.
I’ve been told to make my first steps on a predictable and stable GEOs. That was the main reason why I chose this offer and targeted basically the first GEO on the list – France.
Next thing they told me was to be ready to invest money. My own experience taught me that going into an uncharted territory requires time and money investments, so I was ready for it.
The last thing I’ve been told to focus on – was targeting Android devices. I knew that iPhones don’t support Push Notifications properly yet, but why target mobile devices and not desktop? Well, to be honest, I didn’t just want to believe it, so I promised myself to test this out: Chrome/Windows vs. Chrome on Android devices. The test proved me wrong. Just take a look at this (clicks by device):
Creating Push Notifications and a Landing Page. The “usual stuff”
Since I already knew how to work with Push Notifications with EvaDav, I followed the known path: created 2-5 different Push Notifications creatives that matched the Landing that the offer had.
Below are the two most successful Push Notifications:
You don’t really need much from a Push Notification, just make sure it’s short, attractive for your TA, and works correctly.
The offer had a pretty well-designed Landing: minimalistic, with pics and GIFs of the girls, and with a very simple 4-step ‘personal data gatherer’. I’ve been advised that GIFs actually work better than plain pictures for a Dating offer Landing page, so that made me optimistic as well.
Take a look at the Landing page:
Results. The joy of hard work paying off
I was more than satisfied with the results I got. Here’s a screenshot from the cabinet that shows the overall situation at the later stages of my campaign:
I can’t really show you more, as it contains some sensitive information for me. My first weeks weren’t as profitable as the last ones as I was still testing the proper targeting, black- and whitelisting, updating my pushes, etc.
Here’s what I got at the end:
Clicks: 351 273
Leads: 1 392
Total earnings: $5 355
I spent $1506 on this campaign, which brought me to a $3849 of net earnings and a stunning 255% ROI. This was actually the highest that I’ve ever gotten!
I just want to list all the major things that I’ve learned throughout this campaign:
- Ask for advice: This is especially important if you’ve never done what you’re about to do.
- Be ready to invest time and money: Don’t want to sound like a broken record, but there’s really no way to achieve anything in affiliate marketing if you’re not willing to give in.
- Don’t be afraid of uncommon decisions: I didn’t believe that targeting Android devices would do the trick, but it had an insanely good outcome. Who would have thought?
- Don’t forget the basics: Especially when creating Push Notifications and Landing Pages. There are things you simply must do unless you want to fail badly.
- Work with proven partners: Find yourself a network you’re comfortable working with, as I found EvaDav.
- Relax and enjoy the flight: Once you’ve done all the hard work and it’s all just working by itself – relax and watch the money flow to your pocket.
That’s it for this time. Thank you for reading this, and I hope this guide has been helpful.
