MyAdMarket – All-in-One Ad Network Platform for Advertisers and Affiliates

The concept of affiliate marketing has completely changed the way business and lead generation takes place on the internet. It’s also opened up a world of opportunity for individuals, businesses, and brands to make money online, without the many overheads associated with offline business models and hiring employees or holding product.

With such a powerful medium for making money online, there must be powerful solutions and ad management platforms as well. As entrepreneurs and online marketers, it’s common to see new and exciting tracking platforms come and go as the years go by. With more advanced audience targeting and placement options than ever before, it’s always a game of cat and mouse on who has the latest innovative software and solutions.

Today we are going to take a look at MyAdMarket, an advertising platform that offers management solutions for both individual affiliate programs, or even full-size affiliate networks. In short, it’s an all-in-one solution for ad networks, affiliates, advertisers, and publishers alike — available in a white-label solution, which means it’s ready to go and fully customizable to match your existing brand or business right out of the box.

MyAdMarket at a Glance

When it comes to finding an affiliate management platform, you will have a lot of options to choose from. MyAdMarket has taken most of those options and put them all into one powerful solution. At the same time, the platform was built to fit the needs of individuals, businesses and brands of all sizes, allowing for as many clients, campaigns, advertisers and publishers that you may need.

Going Live with Your Own Affiliate Network

As affiliate marketers and agencies continue to find more success in the world of affiliate marketing, many of them will flip their success and expertise into starting an affiliate network of their own. One of the biggest choices to make before doing this, is to find a platform that fits their needs and expectations. Should you consider MyAdMarket as your platform of choice for running an affiliate network, you will find great value in this section.

The first thing you will need to do is create an account with MyAdMarket. Once you are setup, you will have access to the dashboard area of your account, which will be similar to the one below.

CPXcenter_Affiliate_Management_Dashboard

As an affiliate and having logged into any of your other affiliate network accounts, this dashboard feeling will seem quite familiar. From an administrative perspective, you can now get a glimpse of all activity running through your campaigns or ad networks at all time.

Daily, weekly and monthly stats charts are available for both advertisers and campaigns within your network. You can also get a quick view on the impressions being served based on country as well. In this same area you can access and manage all aspects of your affiliate program or network through the menu options on the left side and top menu bar areas.

Something unique built within MyAdMarket that you won’t find on other management platforms, is an ad media exchange network. This section (located within each of the side and top menu areas) allows for buying and selling extra traffic with other ad networks, while also being seamlessly connected and tracked through your existing platform.

MyAdMarket’s Traffic Quality Indexing

Not all traffic sources are the same, nor should they be treated the same way. Traffic and leads from one country or source might not convert as well as others, nor will they be of the same value to the backend advertiser who is paying for them.

Another amazing custom feature found within the MyAdMarket platform is their traffic quality index.

Ad_Serving_Platform_–_MyAdMarket_com

This features allows for advertisers and network administrators to have complete control over not only who and where their traffic and leads are coming from, but also how much they want to pay for each source as well. Not only does this help with increasing ROI and conversions, it’s also a huge factor in controlling and determining fraudulent activity within a network.

By assigning a quality score to each affiliate or traffic source, you will have the ability to monitor activity and quality assurance at all times. Traffic sources and sites are rated on a score of 1 to 100, which indicates the likelihood of conversion from each publisher. This provides greater transparency for affiliates, advertisers and the network monitoring all transactions for both sides.

Advertisers, Publishers and Everyone in Between

Now that you’ve seen what’s possible through MyAdMarket, it’s important to remind you that the platform was built as a white-label solution to fit the needs of individuals, brands and businesses of all sizes. This means it can be used for everything from individual use, to running a massive affiliate network with thousands of affiliates.

Starting an affiliate program is something thousands of businesses and brands consider every day. One of the most discussed topics when starting an affiliate program is which ad network will you join. Who has the best tracking, lowest transaction rates and start-up costs? These are all great questions, but it’s also important to consider your options with MyAdMarket as an advertiser or merchant as well.

When looking at other networks like Shareasale, Linkshare or CommissionJunction, you are potentially looking at expensive startup costs and transaction fees in the 10-30% range — which can quickly add up to thousands of extra dollars over the course of the year. Each of the mentioned networks are great, but their startup and transaction costs simply might not be affordable for all businesses looking to get live with an affiliate program of their own.

To good news is that MyAdMarket has everything in place to run a dynamic ad management business and monetize all of your unique content in the most effective and most lucrative ways possible. The user interface, as it is for ad networks and merchants, is easy to use and is fully scalable to grow alongside your business. Your advertisers gain access to setting up and monitoring their campaigns, complete with full reports, and you earn the most money possible.

How Much Does MyAdMarket Cost?

MyAdMarket was created with the end user in mind, which meant having solutions in place to fit the needs of businesses and brands of all sizes. Monthly plans are scalable, affordable and all-inclusive in nature. The only real difference between each plan is the amount of traffic you are pushing through the network.

CPXcenter_Pricing___Comparison_Chart

Pricing starts as low as $9/month for the basic plan, which includes up to 100,000 monthly impressions and 100,000 clicks. As mentioned earlier, the biggest difference as you move up to higher pricing plans, is the amount of traffic (impressions and clicks) you will be running through your network. Each level up also includes additional perks, as a “traffic quality monitor” is available on “Standard” and above, while a “One on One Personal Training” option is available on the “Professional” and “Enterprise” packages

Whether you’re interested in running your own ad network, or you’re a merchant or publisher who wants access to a more robust and comprehensive system you can call your own, MyAdMarket could be the perfect solution for you. All plans come with a one-month free trial. Request a demo to see how MyAdMarket can grow your business.

Online Gaming Affiliates: 3 Site Techniques that Work

Online Gaming Affiliates: 3 Site Techniques that Work

In the world of affiliate marketing, there are thousands of ways to make money online. No matter if it’s through email marketing, social media ads, creating your content or even mobile advertising — what matters most is understanding the niche market that you are getting into, knowing your audience and your competition.

The online gaming industry is generates billions of dollars in revenue every year. It’s also vast in it’s many niche segments, such as poker, slots, casinos and sports betting — all of which seems to be regulated in different ways.

Online Gaming Market

However, if you were to join any of the major affiliate networks, you would likely find an offer or two for any of the category types mentioned above. At the same time you will also find that these offers usually have payouts in the $150-$300+ commission range. If you were to work with real money gaming sites directly, some pay upwards of 40-60% commissions on all lost wages.

In this article we are going to cover three working methods of how to create an online gaming resource site that can continue to make you money for many years to come. Before jumping into this space however, it would be wise to study up on regulations of promoting gaming offers in your area (country). The United States for example isn’t too keen on affiliates earning money off casino and gaming promotions and you won’t find much success with promoting your site through Google Adwords or Facebook Ads either.

However… this just means you would need to focus your efforts on outside countries, where the demand for online gaming and sports betting is even larger. Here are two examples of different types of regulations in place.

Online gambling was always a sensitive topic in the US. For example, New Jersey is always a hot topic for discussion with online gaming and sports betting as it’s home to “Atlantic City“. New Jersey has the most comprehensive online gambling regulation in the US, which also continues to report increasing year-on-year revenues generated by its online casinos and poker rooms. The question here is, how will other sites start implementing their own online gaming rules?

Outside of the United States, a perfect example of this would be to look at how Australian players continue to enjoy Royal Vegas Australia’s casino games, despite the government’s interesting stance on online casinos. Currently the only form of online gambling legally allowed Down Under is pre-game sports betting. The locals are not banned from playing poker and casino games online, but the companies are not allowed to promote or offer their services to locals.

Meanwhile in Canada and other locations around the world, online gaming is regulated by territory or individual locations. No matter where you are located in the world, if you want to actively partake or promote online gaming offers, you should be aware of regulations for both players and promoters in that area.

3 Working Methods for Creating Profitable Gaming Resource Sites

Now that you’ve been bored to death with the fascinating details of online gaming and worldly regulations, it’s time to move on to the meat of the content, which is how to start an online gaming content or resource site.

The funny thing is, many of these same methods with work just as well when promoting other affiliate niche markets as well, such as hosting, business services and even physical products. Scan through each of the three site types featured below, and see which might work best for you.

#1 – Bonus / Gameplay Comparison Sites

Back in the good old days of affiliate marketing and when Google allowed pay per click marketing for online gaming, you would have seen paid advertisements for every possible gaming related search term you could think of. Advertisers were paying upwards of $50+ per click, then Google decided they no longer wanted to allow for online gaming in their search results. A whole industry traffic source was wiped out just like that…

However, that’s not the main focus in this point. Instead the focus is the type of sites that were paying this type of money to rank at the top of the search results. If it wasn’t a main casino site, it was likely a gaming comparison site — providing players with details on the best deposit bonuses, while also providing the site owner with multiple opportunities to earn referral commissions several times over on their most recommended properties.

While the model of ppc gaming ads might not work in Google USA today, the model of creating comparison sites for gaming (or other services) still works extremely well today.

#2 – Individual Gaming Site Reviews

Just like there are quick comparison sites that highlights the best games, features, deposit bonuses and promotions for multiple gaming sites, there are also sites dedicated to provide very details reviews on single or multiple gaming sites.

This is something most affiliate marketers are already familiar with, and are often referred to as “niche” sites. With this model it would be ideal to product 1,000+ word in-depth reviews on each gaming site out there in a specific niche (such as poker, sports betting or slots).

This type of content would do really well with converting traffic into real players, as it’s a review process real players and people usually go through before joining a site or buying something on. The focus here is on niche content of the utmost quality.

#3 – “How to” Players Guide

Every day millions of individuals turn the legal age to start gambling within their specific region. With such a demand for online/offline gaming, there is also a demand for learning how to play all of the casino games. Roulette, Blackjack, Craps, Poker and everything in between… people are searching for how to guides, videos and anything they can to better understand such games or even get the slightest bit of the upper hand.

This is where your opportunity comes into play. There is always going to be a never ending supply of content online, but if you can find a way to create it better, make it more engaging or even simply getting it in front of the right audiences… you may have a winner. Audiences are searching for this type of content, and once they end up on such a resource site, it’s likely they would also click on any online gaming links or offers as well.

The Future of Online Gaming and Affiliate Marketing

Looking at the past 15+ years, the online gaming and affiliate market space has changed a lot. While affiliate marketing conferences like Affiliate Summit continue to grow in size, we simply don’t see the same growth and exposure for the online gaming conferences like we started to see back in the early 2000s when it was less regulated. However, this isn’t the case overseas where the business is still thriving extremely well.

One thing we do know, is that the concepts of online gaming, sports betting and poker isn’t going anywhere. There will always be ways to get around regulations in place, as it’s a thriving industry for it’s players, the businesses behind the gaming outlets and also the states and countries taxing revenues along the way.

For all of those reasons and everything mentioned above, the sports betting and online gaming space will continue to bring in massive earnings. As entrepreneurs and affiliate marketers, it’s our job to keep an eye on changing regulations, what’s working in terms of promotion and how to make money from it in the process.

How Adrian Diaz is Building Affiliates Sites on the Side as a Full-time Construction Worker

I’m excited to share the story today of Adrian Diaz from Hasta La Vista Boss.

I love the hustle of Adrian.  And his motivation is infectious.

Adrian still works full time as a crane operator in the construction business.  Yet, after working long days, he still finds the time to work on his online business.

He’s building affiliate sites.  He’s trying to rank in Google.  And he’s also building a personal brand on his blog and on Youtube!

In fact,  he’s done some great interviews with some online entrepreneurs on his Hasta La Vista Boss Youtube channel.  

Overall, Adrian share’s his story and his strategies for how he’s built a side income ranging from a few hundred dollars a month to $1,500 a month.  

Tell us your journey. 

Hi Spencer, hello Niche Pursuits community. Thanks for having me on Spencer. This is a dream come true. It wasn’t long time ago I was going through the NSP playlist on youtube and listening to your podcast learning how to get started in how to make money online and today I have the chance to be ON the podcast … WOW !

I’m Adrian, a regular dude who works 14-16 hours/day shifts in construction as a mobile crane operator. I have a beautiful wife and a 4yo little angel. These 2 are my blessings. My all. The reason I want to build an online business and achieve the freedom to spend more time together.

I got into IM about 2.5 years ago. My wife was 6-7 months pregnant and she told me she doesn’t want to go back to work when our baby is born. So I said:”Ok, what do you want to do?”

Her idea was to sell something online. She’s from Brazil and her suggestion was to bring merchandise from Brazil and sell it in Europe or viceversa.

None of that happened by the way, BUT that was the TRIGGER that got me into typing in Google and YouTube: “how to make money online,How to create an online business,etc”

So I found a lot of gurus selling crap on how to make money online and all that, but after a loooot of research I found a guy called WP Eagle on Youtube, Doug Cunnington and yourself with your NSP series.

I got into affiliate marketing and SEO mentored by guys such as Doug Cunnington and Kyle Roof. Almost 3 years later, I’m still in the trenches…

I’ve learned A LOT in such a short time and I proved myself that making money online IS REAL and it CAN actually be a full time source of income.

I have a few projects going on currently

Amazon affiliate
Lead gen
Merch
Youtube
Property

and much more lol … but my main focus is to build one or a few succesful affiliate sites that will allow me to quit my job and dedicate myself full time online.

How successful is your business today? 

I’m still in the rat race. I still have a full-time day job doing crazy hours…even so, working maybe an hour a day on my side hustle, I’m able to generate some money online, passively.

The problem is, it’s not consistent. Sometimes I make as low as $200 p/m and sometimes as high as $1.500 p/m or more … and that’s one of the reasons I can’t quit my job just yet. (Plus the corona virus situation didn’t help. At all. Actually, I was very badly affected by it)

I make that money with

1 website that’s almost 3 years old and monetized with Amazon. It has less than 5k visitors p/m, about 60 articles (many are very bad in terms of the quality of the content, structure, etc)

Youtube channel that has some affiliate links in the description.

Advertising some courses that I personally gone through and tools that I personally use (good commission %, between 25%-40%, but I’m not doing too much unfortunately due to my very limited amount of free time)

What failure did you experience that perhaps made you doubt your future as an entrepreneur?

It depends on what you consider failure … although I’ve done a lot of mistakes so far, I can’t remember making one so bad that I could not fix it.

One recent silly thing I did was, I advertising a high ticket item, a course. After a month or two sending people to the product sales page … I find it strange that NO ONE bought a course!

I thought to myself :”ok, I’ve sent a few hundred people to this sales page and no one is buying?!?

I’m aware that not many people will convert. Especially because it’s a high ticket product.

BUT NONE out of hundreds?!

So I’ve reached out and talked to them about it.

*** Apparently, I wasn’t using the right affiliate link (OMG). THAT WAS DUMB ***

But after a little bit of back and forth with their team, they were kind enough to credit me for about 10 sales, which was about $1k in total.

So that was a silly mistake…

I do have a lot of bad days though where I feel tired because of my work, stressed about the bills and worries being a dad and wanting to provide the best of the best for my family. Sometimes I feel really demotivated because I can’t get the results I dream about….FASTER!

But I have a big vision (for me anyway) I have a strong drive, I’m self motivated and I know where I’m going and why I’m doing what I’m doing. That vision helps me to keep pushing through those shitty days.

The worst days (thank God I don’t have too many of these) are those days where for whatever reason I’m starting to compare myself to others. I start to talk myself down:” I’m not good enough. I’m not smart enough. I don’t speak English good enough”…blah blah blah.

None of these things I consider them to be a failure. Being a failure is something like boxing. You’re not a failure just because the opponent knocked you down. You will be a failure though … if you don’t get up.

What are 1 or 2 strategies that have made your business successful? 

Targeting low volume keywords. That’s not a secret but that’s what I believe to be the thing that most of us, beginners to intermediate affiliate marketers tend to forget. Yes, we want those big and juicy keywords of course… but we’ll probably never rank for them without a nice and healthy budget behind us.

So I’ve applied keyword research techniques such as KGR (keyword golden ration) a term coined by Doug Cunnington. I was able to rank very fast with a very small site. And make my first buck online within a week of launching the site. (I got lucky I guess haha)

Where do you hope to take your business in the future? 

I see myself doing a lot of different businesses online. I’ll own websites in a few different languages because I’m lucky enough to speak more than one (4 actually)

Most of these websites will be in the affiliate marketing space. Maybe monetized with Amazon or other program, maybe Ads or lead generation.

Before I’ll be able to say to my manager :”Hasta La Vista Boss” I’d like to be able to generate at least $4-5k per month consistently from a portofolio of websites.

After that … I have a looooot of plans and things I want to build lol

Like for example, I’m building a brand called “Hasta La Vista Boss”. At the moment is just a YouTube channel mostly and a FB group where I share/document my journey from full-time employee to full-time digital marketer.

I have awesome LIVE hang outs with successful people and with people in the trenches as well for motivation and inspiration porpuses. I create LIVE case studies, LIVE income reports and much more! Once I feel like I can teach something … I’ll probably create my own digital products. I prefer to wait a little bit more (even though people are reaching out for training and consulting) I feel like I’m not ready until I MAKE IT OUT OF THE RAT RACE!
