How to Invite People to Like Your Facebook Page

Our friends at Facebook have an awesome feature that lets you invite people who have engaged with a post on your Facebook Page to actually Like your Page (if they don’t already). It is pretty easy to do and you will see a high percentage of the people you invite to Like your Page will actually end up pressing the Like button. When you invite them they get a notification on their Facebook that you sent them the invite and they can easily click it and Like your Page. Then, they’ll start seeing your Facebook Page content in their News Feed and it doesn’t cost you a dime. Invite Your Likes to Like Your Page The first step is actually getting Likes on your content. This method to getting new Likes on your Facebook Page will not work if no one is pressing Like on your posts. If you are not […]

Traffic Sources Based On Experience

There are a ton of different traffic sources out there you can run your affiliate marketing campaigns on and one of the easiest things you can do is completely overwhelm yourself by trying to run campaigns at all of them at the same time. I think it’s really important that you choose a traffic source, test a spread of campaigns on that traffic source, optimize your campaigns, and then scale until you hit a ceiling. If you simply setup campaigns on a bunch of different traffic sources all at once you are going to spread yourself too thin. So, what traffic sources do I suggest focusing on based on your experience as an affiliate marketer? I’ve broken down your possible experience level into four different levels. Those levels are Freshmen, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior. Here is an explanation of each level and one traffic source I suggest based on that level. Remember, […]

How to Add a Tracking Domain with SSL (https) to Your PeerFly Account

One major change over the past year or so has been the importance of adding SSL to your domains. Whether you have a simple WordPress blog like this one or the best social media management tool on market, security is important and adding a SSL certificate is one way to secure your website. Many traffic sources (such as ZeroPark) are beginning to require your domain accessible through https. Google is also factoring it into their search algorithm. So, we recommend adding SSL to your custom tracking domain when setting it up on PeerFly. In my opinion, the best (and easiest) way to do this is by setting your domain up on Cloudflare before you add it to PeerFly. This will provide you with free SSL and it also makes it really easy to add the A Records required to use the domain on PeerFly. Here is a guide on how […]

How to Direct Link PeerFly Offers on Facebook Ads

How to direct link PeerFly offers using Facebook Ads is probably one of the most common questions I get from publishers interested in running affiliate offers on Facebook. Facebook provides a great ad platform that can be very lucrative to affiliates, but it does require some work to get your campaigns up and approved. It’s not as easy as just putting your affiliate link on PropellerAds and waiting for the conversions to come in. If you do not run your ad campaigns properly on Facebook, you can get your ads account suspended pretty easily so it’s important that you know what you’re doing before you give it a try. There are two big steps you need to take to direct link PeerFly offers on Facebook Ads. Once you do these, you will have no trouble getting your campaigns approved, receiving traffic, and hopefully getting conversions! Add a Custom Tracking Domain […]

The Best Way to Search PeerFly’s Offers

PeerFly now has over 4,000 affiliate offers in it’s network. That is a massive amount of offers. With about 100 offers being added each week, that number is just going to continue to increase. With all those offers, it can be difficult and overwhelming to find just the right affiliate offer. In 2011, I first launched PeerFlyOffers. PeerFlyOffers.com is a public directory of all our affiliate offers on PeerFly that anyone, even if you aren’t an approved PeerFly publisher, can search through and view our the offers available. Recently. I released a giant update PeerFly Offers to bring it into 2018! There are many big updates I did for the new site, but probably the one I am most proud of is the search. Search PeerFly Offers with Keywords I have programmed a custom search for PeerFlyOffers that extracts keywords from your search to provide you with the best results […]

Running a PeerFly Offer with TONIC Zero Click Traffic

I have received a lot of questions about a traffic source I recently recommended so I thought it would be beneficial to do a quick guide and explain how to to run a PeerFly offer with TONIC’s zero click traffic. TONIC is a traffic marketplace (ad network) where you can buy zero click and pop traffic. I prefer to run the zero click domain traffic because it seems to convert better.

The visitor is not required to click an ad. So, let’s take a look at how you can setup a PeerFly offer directly linking to your affiliate link and start getting traffic and conversions from TONIC! The first step is creating a TONIC advertiser account. You can find their advertiser registration […]

Affiliate Marketing Traffic Sources I’ve Tried in 2018

I have spent 2018 focused on testing a few different traffic sources with my affiliate marketing campaigns and thought it might be fun to a post to explain what sources I’ve tried and how my campaigns performed. A majority of the traffic I have run this year has been with PPV traffic sources. This is mainly because my biggest source with my most profitable campaigns was with a PPV network so I scaled by trying new traffic sources in that same channel. We also have a ton of discussion around PPV in the PPV sub-forum on affLIFT which is driving me to test more of those traffic sources. With all that being said, my biggest traffic source in 2018 so far has been ZeroPark. ZeroPark I first reviewed ZeroPark on this blog in 2014. A lot has changed since that review, but one thing hasn’t, ZeroPark is fantastic. One […]

A Community to Give Your Affiliate Marketing a LIFT

Many years ago, I created this blog to be able to provide a way to share my experiences with affiliate marketing and to talk about what I have been doing. Over those years, my articles have been read millions of times. It’s been a humbling and exciting experience to watch my work appreciated by others. The big issue with a blog is that it’s very hard to build a community experience. Sure, many of you comment on the articles and there are some decent discussions going in the comments, but those are easily lost and forgotten. So, a few months ago, I decided I wanted to build a community for everyone I’m able to reach who is interested in affiliate marketing. Not only do I want to build a community, but I want it to be the best community of it’s kind and I want everyone within that community […]

Building a Social Media Empire: Step 1

Over the past few years, one my focuses has been building a social media empire. I have built a very nice audience of over 3,500,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter.

Goodbye 7Search and LeadImpact

This year, we have lost two traffic sources that anyone who has been doing affiliate marketing for a few years has probably at least tried out: 7Search and LeadImpact. Nearly 5 years ago, I published an article titled Traffic Sources Based On Experience and both 7Search and LeadImpact were recommended in it. Over the years, they have both been a great source of traffic for our affiliates at PeerFly and thousands of people have made tons of money using them. However, the tides change quickly in the affiliate marketing industry and those traffic sources were not able to keep up. 7Search is near and dear to my heart. I wrote my review of 7Search on November 16, 2011. I followed it up with a bunch of other articles about how to run and optimize campaigns using their traffic that have generated 563,558 page views and counting. LeadImpact has also had a […]

The best way to explain how it works is to explain how I came up with the idea. In June, I started monetizing my It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia Facebook Fan Page by publishing articles […]

The First 100 Days After Launching a Blog for My Business

On November 16, 2016, I published my first article on a brand new blog for my business, FPTraffic. FPTraffic is a Facebook Page management tool I launched over 3 years ago. The tool has been pretty successful despite the fact that I have hardly done any marketing for it outside of my initial launch emails and a few promotions over the years on this blog. It has grown primarily through word of mouth and referrals from my current customers. This is great because these new customers do not really cost me anything, but in order to take FPTraffic to the next level, I know it’s important that I start bringing in new customers through my own marketing channels and organically by producing content to help solve the pain points of my potential customers. So, in November, I launched the FPTraffic Blog and over the past 107 days it’s generated about 40,000 pageviews and […]

5 Affiliate Traffic Sources to Test in 2017

The Internet landscape is constantly evolving which means the best sources of traffic for affiliates is constantly changing too. Where can affiliates find good traffic in 2017? There are 5 specific traffic sources that I recommend affiliates test this year. These are all sources I have been running traffic with for the past few months and that I have had some success with.
