Amazon Business Update – My 1st Product Is Live

Progress I’m really excited to make this blog post!  This post comes as result of months of planning, execution, and waiting.

Diversification of Traffic Networks As with most businesses,... [Read more]


Where’s All The Traffic?

Where’s All The Traffic?

This Is The Kind Of Traffic I Like To See So your affiliate manager hits you up about a campaign that is turning smoking hot right now in a set of countries you typically don’t promote.   You figure, hey, this could be my chance to pull in some conversions from an obscure little geo before many other affiliates jump on the band wagon.  You spend time researching banners and angles you can... [Read more]

Bulk Alexa Rank Checking

Bulk Alexa Rank Checking

Bulk Alexa Checking A couple of posts ago I was talking about how I was trying to identify sites where I could contact the webmaster directly to purchase advertising.  My process consisted of pulling a Google Placement and Imobitrax report of all the sites I receive any amount of clicks on and looking up traffic stats on each site individually using Alexa and Compete.com. This process took up alot... [Read more]

February Earnings Report – Meh…

February Earnings Report – Meh…

Meh Okay lets just start off by saying the February is the shortest month in the year. It’s very difficult to increase your bottom line over a previous time period when your current time period is 3 days shorter   It’s never a good thing when someone starts of a blog post with excuses right?  In any case, February has come and gone and I owe you guys a summary of what happened. All and... [Read more]

My 1st Direct Site Buy – Spreading the Music

Spread The Music So last post I mentioned that I was purchasing traffic on the Google Content Network. Basically allowing Google to place my ads where ever they felt would best fit the content on of my ad copy. During this process, I was tracking the various sites on which I was being placed in hopes of contacting these sites directly and cutting Google out of the advertising deal. One day, while... [Read more]


How I Lost $942.16 Giving Away The Bible

How I Lost $942.16 Giving Away The Bible

The Bible Last month (February), I decided to run a little experiment that actually turned into this case study I’m presenting right now.  As many of you may be familiar, my favorite sources of revenue online come from running cost per action (CPA) offers.   Up until recently most of my offers were either mobile or lead generation related.  However, last month I decided to run a campaign... [Read more]


January Earnings Statement – New Year Plans

January Earnings Statement – New Year Plans

Pushing Forward You should probably know me by now, I tend to put up my earnings statements a little more tardy than most.  I’ll work on more prompt postings in 2013.  In any case, my last posting was more of a review of 2012, however in this post I would like to focus more on what I’m planning for 2013.  Yeah, it may be a little corny to put up your business resolutions out on my blog... [Read more]

How Much Is Your Time Worth?

How Much Is Your Time Worth?

Get Anything Done For $5.00 Question for you?  How much is your time really worth?  Let’s get more specific, how much is an hour of your time worth.  If you are like me, then you are probably trying to deduce this by taking your monthly salary and dividing it by 160+ hours or something.  If you do the math you’ll probably see that your time is worth quite a lot more than what you may... [Read more]


November Mobile Business Report

November Mobile Business Report

Rough Month As I sit here an type this report, I’m really sadden about the progress I’ve been making lately.  It seems the entire year things were working out great and I was blasting through offers (in a good way) left and right.  However, this month (November) was one of my toughest moments on record in a long time.   Things just seemed to have fallen apart all a sudden  and all... [Read more]


Leadbolt CPI App Arbitrage – Case Study

Leadbolt CPI App Arbitrage – Case Study

So I recently found out that Leadbolt can facilitate cost per install (CPI) Android based campaigns in their system.  Check out the info here:  Leadbolt CPI.  Read the last line on the page to see what I’m talking about.  Not only was it CPI traffic, but it was NON-INCENT CPI traffic which means its usually a higher quality type traffic.  The only barrier to entry to using this traffic was... [Read more]

Adcenter Mobile In-App Ads:  Waste of Time?

Adcenter Mobile In-App Ads: Waste of Time?

Many of you may know how much I’m into finding traffic sources that are not as exploited as many of the mainstream sources.  Many of you out there probably mainly use Google, Yahoo, Bing, Jumptap, Leadbolt, Airpush, etc for many of your mobile campaigns.  There’s nothing wrong with this as I do the exact same thing.  These sources have some of the largest concentration of traffic and... [Read more]
