    Hi Walsh259,

    I am an Affiliate Manager for a network that focuses on Travels that targets in on the Asia Pacific Area and let me share some tips I found successful Affiliates doing.

    3 Key campaign Elements: Traffic Source, Offer and Angle

    Traffic Source

    1. Once you have chosen a traffic source, you should spy on it extensively - see What Software, Hardware, and Memberships Do I Need? - to get a good idea of what offers are working on that traffic source.
    2. You should mostly stick to the type of offer that you've seen working on your chosen traffic source whilst spying.
    3. The best approach is to test a lot of offers, and to alternate between testing recommended offers and offers that you've found in your networks' offer selection which don't have much data.
    4. You can ask for recommendations, but any offer that your Affiliate Manager recommends or that shows up in Affiliate Network newsletters is likely to have a lot of other affiliates running it too.
    5. The same offer running on two different networks can vary in conversion rate by 50% or more: testing the same offer from multiple networks is one of the big keys to success.

    Offer

    3. You can ask for recommendations, but any offer that your Affiliate Manager recommends or that shows up in Affiliate Network newsletters is likely to have a lot of other affiliates running it too.
    4. It is also very important to split-test offers amongst all the networks that run that offer.

    Angle

    1. A less obvious angle may work better - for example, choosing a specific situation where a battery running down is bad.
    2. For example, an obvious angle for a battery saver mobile app is to ask users if they're tired of their battery running down.
    3. However, you can run multiple offers in a campaign, and pick the best, if they all work with the same angle.

    Well, at least you've learnt from your mistakes.
