    go with low payout offers, and set the daily budget to 10USD AND KEEP WATCHING and blacklist the bad placements .

    This is going to sound like a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway to make sure I'm not fucking up too bad.

    It's about my landing page(I use purelander) CTA button. The link I put in depends on whether I'm using a tracking tool or not, right? So if I'm not using a tracker I'm just posting the affiliate link from my CPA network? And if I am using a tracking tool(I use BeMob) I have to put the click URL from BeMob? And then BeMob redirects the visitor to the offer using the affiliate link{clickID} thing I submitted, correct?

    Am I getting this right?

    You are 100% right, that's how it work, if you are using bemob you will use "click url" as a call to action link in your landing page and bemob will take care of the redirection.

    if you have done that and you want to test if your campaign is working, make sure you open your campaign url then it will take you to the landing page, then when you click call to action button it ill work.

    some people don't open campaign url and they open landing page url directly and they wonder why the call to action don't work :D:D.

    so what you have said is 100% right.

    please when you run your campaign share the results with us here so we can follow with you.

    Thanks. I just did that. I got redirected to another offer since I'm not in the target country but both the visit and the click registered on BeMob.

    Setting all this stuff up took more time than I expected and I'm also working full time but I'm finally ready to run some traffic. I'll buy 3-4 times the offer payout for saturday and sunday and see what comes back.

    Hello and thanks for this thread!
    I have been looking for something similar, i have read your first post before but never thaught that POP traffic was valuable, cuz i never even look at the page while watching movies on a streaming site, i only get ready to close whatever pops up. But yeah why would one run pop campaign if no one is making money with them ?

    So me and my partner are about to start this, and this thread gave us so many valuable info.

    What we have done so far :
    • We have a shared hosting plan with A2Hosting already, but i think we will get AWS VPS if the page takes more than a second to load.
    • We have created a propeller ads account and will be depositing in a 100$ later today.
    • We have a PeerFly account.
    • Bemob, the free plan.
    Still struggling to understand how to link everything between bemob and the offer and the campaign, i will let you know here how it is going. but i have a question, what do you think about the landing pages like : "YOU HAVE WON A SPIN TO WIN THE IPHONE X" , and the user needs to push OK and then the spin goes on and he gets redirected to the offer, is this gonna work or should i stick to the basic ? Or you can't predict and we have to test both ?

    Thanks again !!

    All right, so I ran my first test campaign for 3 days, each 3 x the offer payout. The first one I fucked up completely, I moved my landing page into another folder in AWS s3 storage but forgot to update the link in my tracker, so the traffic was wasted. Oh well.

    The second day I had about 3.2k views and 39 clicks, no conversions, at a 0.001 bid. I'm guessing that's a bad CTR. The only targeting I did was I removed all the adult categories.

    The third day I added the adult categories back in, but I removed the file sharing and image hosting categories. I also noticed that I was getting a lot of views on the Safari browser but no clicks, so I removed that. Also the traffic was split about evenly between Android and IOS phones but I had only a few clicks on ISO(my offer is an Iphone sweepstake) so I removed the IOS option as well. I also decided to up my bid to 0.01 since I was way back in the traffic queue. At a 0.01 bid I was 4th in line and popads estimated I would get 5k hits, lol. I only got about 1.5k, 30 clicks and still no conversions. So my CTR was up because I had less traffic, but still no conversions.

    I guess back to the drawing board.

    A few observations:
    -either the popads traffic estimator is shit or there's something wrong with my tracker. I don't think I'm getting the volume I'm supposed to be getting.
    - popads always goes over the daily budget a little. Not a problem when my budget is a few bucks, but what about if/when I scale up?
    - bemob isn't tracking my cost/spending correctly. It's saying I spend less than I actually spend on popads. Maybe I'm not using the tracker correctly, I'm still getting the hang of it.

    Overall I'm not too bothered, I didn't expect to get any conversions. I'm wondering where to go next. Should I chose another offer or try a couple of more landing pages(I only used one)? I don't know if there's enough traffic in this country so even if I get profitable I might not be able to scale.

    Should I stick with his offer and try to optimize some more as a learning experience?

    Hey man.

    I can't post links yet but if you search bemob on youtube one of the first videos should be by Luke Kling, showing you how to set up tracking on PF. Good luck.

    I read earlier in the thread that you mentioned targeting t2-t3 traffic since t1 people usually don't fall for POP ads (I assume based off low T1 conversions) So in order to hit some of those foreign countries do you have to create the LP's in foreign languages? Do you recommend leaving them in English or hiring a translator to change the content to different languages?

    Probably going to give this a shot soon since I'm a decent graphic designer and I've got 400-500$ I can play with.

    Hope you're still banking hard off this!

    Here's a question about Popads. Why is it that the estimate I get for traffic is the same now matter how high or low I set the daily budget? Shouldn't a higher budget mean more views and vice versa?

    Is there something I'm not getting?

    shared hosting will just make you loose money, go with amazon AWS that's better, or if you don't like it then go with a VPS+CDN, but i really recommend amazon AWS.

    PERFECT, keep in mind peerfly don't have too much mobile offers and sweeps, but they are still a good network, so i suggest you go also with maxbounty, and clickdealer, and yep ads, ..ETC, they have good offers.

    that's a good start.

    always test both, always test in cpa, never judge something if you didn't test it.

    that's normal, you gonna have some click loss, and did you changed the domain name of your own tracking url ?, cus you have to do that.
    if you want to scale increase the daily budget, little by little, and pay attention to the day parting as well :).
    you can adjust that from your tracker just go and change what you have spent on your campaign in your tracker to much what you have spent in the traffic source.


    sir, when it comes to pop traffic your ctr has to be more then 7% and sometimes more then that when you are promoting antivirus offers for example, i don't know what is your vertical, but if you are doing sweeps 6% can be good, that's why you must use aggressive landing page, to reach that CTR, that's why i mentioned to use purelander cus they have aggressive features THAT will help to reach that ctr.


    if your CTR is good and still no conversions means the offer is sucks, you will have to change it, if your CTR is low than the problem is the landing page, you need an aggressive one :).

    I don't think so. How do I do that?

    Or maybe I already did and don't know it, I'm new at this. Could you explain what that is?

    Then it must be my LP, my CTR is about 2%. I do use purelander, and I disable the backbutton, added a vibration and a countdown timer for scarcity. I'm going to try a couple of different LPs before I scrap the offer.

    We have launched our first campain, 1 offer with 2 landing pages, and let's hope for the best. I have to wait until we get it approved.

    We are unfortunatly using the shared hosting only .. tried the AWS S3 module, but once i put the bucket to the Cloudfront, even after waiting 1 day i still get an error message, even tho i have put the code and got confirmation message that says that the bucket has public access. This is the error i keep getting :
    Code:
    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
    <Error>
    <Code>AccessDenied</Code>
    <Message>Access Denied</Message>

    </HostId>
    </Error>
    I checked on Amazon forums and the problem haven't been solved there neither ..

    Does someone here have an idea how to solve this ?

    Does adding "/index.html" at the end of the URL work?

    Just to be clear about this custom domain thing, do I need to add a custom domain to my tracker, CPA network or both? And does it need to be a new domain or the one I use for my landing pages?
