How to Use the Boomerang App for Social Media Marketing Campaigns

How to Use the Boomerang App for Social Media Marketing Campaigns

The traditional boomerang is a curved throwing stick, created sometime between 25,000 and 50,000 years ago. A popular version you might have heard of is the “returning boomerang.” This stick is curved, flattened, and designed to return to the thrower.

The Boomerang app, on the other hand, creates fun mini-videos you can share online.

What are the similarities?

We’ll get to that in a sec, but since this is the Neil Patel blog, there’s no surprise which Boomerang this post will focus on!

Many brands are using Boomerang to connect, engage, and drive brand awareness.

So, how can you get started using this tool? More importantly, how do you create content that will give you an edge over your competitors? Before we answer those questions, let’s first go over what the Boomerang app is.

What Is the Boomerang App?

Boomerang is Instagram’s standalone app, created in 2015.

You can use it to create a video loop that plays forward and in reverse, again and again. In this way, the video continuously returns to the start (just like a traditional boomerang returns to the thrower).

How long is the video loop?

Just. One. Second.

Some marketers might easily dismiss the app or shy away from using it. How can you get your message across in one second? Below, you’ll see how easy it can be to create content that’s only a second long but leaves a lasting impression.

Before we get there, it’s important to mention that Boomerang content is meant to be fun! This is not a platform for communicating complicated or profound messages. Remember, you only have one second.

So when it comes to creating videos on the Boomerang app, think light, fun, and exciting content your audience will love to see and share.

How Does the Boomerang App Work?

According to the Apple App Store, “the app takes ten photos and stitches them together, speeds up the video and smooths out any bumps, then loops it back and forth.”

To continue making the app exciting to use, the creators introduced a few additional features, including SlowMo, Echo, Duo, and Trimming:

  • SlowMo: With this option, videos play for two seconds forward and two seconds backward. As the name suggests, it slows down your video clip to help capture every detail.
  • Echo: This feature creates a double vision effect on your Boomerang video clips.
  • Duo: This option quickly rewinds to the start of the video clip (by speeding up and slowing down), which adds a glitchy feel and texturized effect.
  • Trimming: This feature allows you to edit the video clip length and decide when it should start and end.

How to Get the Standalone Boomerang App

Because this is a separate app from Instagram, you don’t have to worry about having a personal or business Instagram account to download it. You can simply download the app and install it directly on your iOS or Android device.

How to Create a Boomerang Using the App

Once you’ve downloaded the app to your phone, simply tap the white button on the bottom center of the screen.

This allows the app to take a burst of photos and create a Boomerang video clip for you.

To make some technical adjustments, you can tap the screen four times, using four fingers. This lets you alter the resolution of the video, frame rate, frame count, and how the video replays.

When you’re happy with your new Boomerang clip, you can press the “Save” button in the top right corner.

As shown in the picture below, you have the option to share your clip on Instagram, Facebook, or other platforms.

Why Use Boomerang?

What makes the Boomerang app special, and why should you use it over other platforms?

1. Shareability

In this social media age, creating shareable content is essential. This helps grow your brand and get your content in front of the right people.

The Boomerang app is great because short videos are inherently easier to share.

It’s also easier to get someone to commit to watching a one-second clip, rather than a longer, more detailed video.

2. Video Content Is King

No matter how you feel about video, you can’t dispute how effective it is.

Studies show 92% of marketers who use video marketing say it’s an essential part of their marketing strategy, and 83% of marketers say video marketing has helped them generate more leads.

In addition, 74% of consumers who’ve watched an explainer video about a product ended up buying it.

These numbers all point to one fact: visual content works.

With Boomerang, you can continue to create videos and give your market the visual content they enjoy.

3. Simplicity

As a busy marketer, you don’t have the time to try to figure out another complicated new app.

You want something easy to use. You want to worry about creating the right content, not the technical aspects of the app.

Boomerang ticks this box because it’s simple to use and user-friendly.

In just a few seconds, you can have a viral video your market loves.

If you haven’t created Boomerangs for your social media marketing campaigns, it’s never too late to start. It can be a fun and effective way to increase brand awareness and help you achieve your overall marketing goals.

Boomerang Marketing Uses

We’ve already highlighted how simple it is to use the Boomerang app. Now comes the fun part.

The following ideas can give you some inspiration on how to get started with creating fun Boomerang content that’s relevant to your audience.

Showcase Yourself Completing Work

All you need to do to create a Boomerang is tap a button, but pressing the record button is only a little piece of the puzzle.

The real job is finding something interesting to capture, something that can immediately get your audience’s attention, something novel.

Where do you start?

Continuously being creative about a product or service can be challenging, especially if you’ve been working on it for a while.

To get started, put yourself in your consumers’ shoes and ask yourself, “What would I find interesting about this product or service?”

Completing an interesting element of your work can do the trick. Here are some examples:

  • Marketing for a restaurant? How about capturing the chef adding seasoning to the dishes?
  • If you’re marketing for a clothing designer, you can show the models walking down the runway or capture the designer sketching.
  • Marketing for an artist? Record that final brushstroke across a painting.

There is no right or wrong here, but it’s important to understand that simplicity can help get your message across.

A great example of this is how Benefit Cosmetics used the Boomerang app for Instagram.

First, they clearly got the “keep it simple” memo.

They decided to capture a model putting on mascara, choosing to focus on the results of their product because that’s important to their consumers.

When putting together content ideas, think about your consumers and what would nudge them into buying or at least getting excited about your product.

Show Off Your Work Culture

When thinking about content ideas, don’t limit it to only your product or service. Sometimes your audience wants to know more about what’s happening behind-the-scenes.

The Boomerang app allows you to showcase the workplace culture of your brand. Are your employees having fun in the office? Does your brand have a light and fun energy that you want to share with your audience?

Capture these moments because they can help you create real connections with your market.

An example of a great behind-the-scenes moment is this fun and charming Boomerang from Cosmopolitan.

There isn’t a magazine in sight, and Cosmopolitan doesn’t sell bubblegum (last time we checked), but this clip still got thousands of likes. What’s the appeal?

First, it’s about the motion. We can’t help but focus on the bubble as it grows to the point of almost popping, and then gets smaller again. It instantly grabs anyone’s attention.

More importantly, this playful and fun moment endears and connects the brand to its audience.

Demonstrate Your Company’s Altruism

It’s easy to assume that you need a lot of money to make a difference, but that’s not always the case. Even if you own a small company with considerably less turnover than your competitors, you can still make an impact.

Do you feel strongly about making a difference in your community? Does your team sometimes get involved in volunteer work over the weekends? Is there a particular cause you’ve been passionate about for some time?

Whatever the case, you can create a Boomerang and show your company’s compassion.

Consider the following ideas:

  • Your team arriving outside your local charity organization
  • Giving food or apparel to the needy
  • Any other special moment that shows your commitment to making a difference

Show Users How to Do a Task

If you recently added new features to your product, or if you have a complicated software system, why not show your users how to use it?

They’ll appreciate seeing this, and it might be the final push to encourage people on the fence to make the purchase.

A great example of this can be seen in the Boomerang below.

Verge decided to use Boomerang to show off Microsoft’s Surface Book laptop.

In just a quick second, consumers can see how the product looks and how to assemble the screen and keyboard.

If you bought the product and were struggling with this, that’s good for you.

If you’re a fan of the brand or are looking to purchase a new laptop, you might also start wondering about the interesting new features the product has. This video shows you can find a Boomerang moment in any situation.

Show Off Your Product’s Beauty

When it came to showing off their product, jewelry brand Diamond Mansion kept things simple.

They knew placing their cushion-cut, double halo ring under the right lighting would grab their followers’ attention.

Check out the Boomerang below.

This clip works because the brand understands its market and what they want to see: a beautiful, sparkly diamond ring.

You don’t have to complicate things by trying to convey too many messages at once. Boomerang clips are too short for that. Just keep it to one, simple idea that’s relevant to your market.

Conclusion

As you already know, when it comes to social media marketing, a lot goes into creating the right content on any platform.

In addition to planning and creating content, there’s also the element of engaging with your audience, building trust, and keeping them engaged, not to mention competing with thousands of other brands that want your market’s attention.

It’s important, therefore, to use trends to diversify your content.

Creating mini one-second videos can be a fun and exciting addition to your feed. It can also give your audience something to remember you by.

When creating Boomerang video clips, remember to always think about one idea or message you want to convey.

Keep things simple, be creative, and have fun while creating new content for your audience to consume.

Why Are My Affiliate Marketing Campaigns Failing? Here Are the Top 5 Beginner Mistakes.

Why Are My Affiliate Marketing Campaigns Failing? Here Are the Top 5 Beginner Mistakes.

If you’ve ever read an exciting follow along that at some point just stopped getting updates you must have wondered what happened to the affiliate and their campaigns. Depending on how the thread was going there are two possible options.

One, the affiliate became so successful they decided to channel 100% of their energy towards scaling the campaigns and making the most of it.
Two, they decided to give up, stopped the campaign and changed their niche… or profession.

Either way, the forum is full of questions from beginners who are only just starting their journeys. Sooner or later a thread gets started: Why are my campaigns failing? Why did my campaign stop converting? I’ve spent $XX and got no conversions. Why?

Let me go over the top 5 reasons why your campaigns fail and how to fix it.

testing-png.11771

1. Not testing enough

Undoubtedly, the biggest mistake made by beginner affiliates is not testing enough. Getting discouraged within days after starting your first campaign is very common but it’s definitely not a good reason to quit affiliate marketing.

Here is the bad news for beginners with low budgets. Spending $10 and getting no conversions is more common than you think. Depending on what you are trying to promote your ‘test’ budget might vary.

If you’re promoting sweepstakes with a single opt in conversion process, then $10 should most of the time bring you at least a couple of conversions.

If you’re promoting a double opt-in offer with a higher payout and higher requirements, then $10 might hardly be enough to test a portion of the traffic.

Depending on the volumes available in the traffic source of your choice, the ‘testing phase’ might eat up a significant chunk of your budget. The higher the traffic volume the higher the earning potential but also the longer the testing phase.

If you’re not sure what a testing phase is then let me explain. Once you choose your offer, lander (or landers) and creatives, you need to choose and test a traffic source. Even when you already have an optimized funnel, the traffic will behave differently in each network, source, target and country.

While testing the traffic you should let your campaign run uninterrupted for 3-4 days before analyzing the data and making first optimization decisions. In Zeropark, the minimum daily budget for all types of traffic is $20 which totals $60-$80 for gathering data. The recommended daily budget, however, is $100.

After that period, well-performing sources and targets should be clearly identifiable but throughout that time it’s highly likely that your campaign would be running at a loss.

It’s hard to watch your budget go without seeing any green, but without gathering data and optimizing traffic based specifically on that data, your chances of success are slim. It’s best to focus on learning one particular skill (vertical/ad format/GEO) rather than move erratically between different ideas.

Do not jump from campaign to campaign if you don’t become profitable overnight. It doesn’t mean that you chose the wrong offer/ad format/GEO targeting – it means you just haven’t tested enough.

If your first campaign doesn’t get profitable (even if you did your best to properly test the data and optimize the traffic) that’s still not a good enough reason to quit. Some campaigns just won’t become profitable no matter what you do. Sometimes you won’t know why. What’s important is to learn from them anyway.

Were there any sources that showed potential? Save them in a spreadsheet and test with a different offer. Don’t let the valuable data go to waste. Don’t get discouraged. Test more offers, landers and GEOs.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. The super affiliates that you know and admire, most likely didn’t make millions of off their first campaign. Not even the second or the third one. They kept on testing until they found a working combination and that’s exactly what you should do too.

Don’t forget that you can always ask your traffic source’s / ad network’s representatives for the latest top performers. They know exactly what sort of offers perform well in what GEOs and they might even give you some ideas for what angles and creatives work best.

optimizing-too-quickly-png.11772

2. Optimizing too quickly

The second biggest mistake is connected rather closely with the first one. Beginner affiliates tend to get very enthusiastic about making their first optimizations. When they see that their campaign hasn’t been converting well within 24 hours from its launch, they pull the optimization trigger too early.

Cutting sources or placements is a good optimization strategy but only when you have sufficient data to be able to judge their potential accurately.

One or two conversions in one source vs. zero conversions in another is not a significant amount of data. Wait until the difference in conversions is clearly visible. That’s why we recommend letting your campaign gather data for 3-4 days before you start narrowing things down.

How much should you spend before optimizing?

It’s also highly recommended to have a spend of minimum $100 before proceeding to optimization. The recommended amount of conversions is not as easy to determine. When it comes to sweepstakes offers, the tests budget might be lower but it’s best to wait until you have about 50 conversions. In case of higher payout offers, a budget of $300-$500 is recommended for the initial testing phase but the minimum number of conversions amounts to about 20.

Please remember that these numbers are general recommendations and shouldn’t strictly determine how you run your campaigns. If you are a complete beginner they should give you a good idea of what a campaign testing phase looks like. There are many different strategies out there but the one thing that they all have in common is that you need significant data in order to start optimizing.

Also, cutting sources and targets should not be the first optimization that you do. Initially, you should focus on observing the performance of mobile vs. desktop traffic. Sometimes the difference in performance between platforms should be easily visible and therefore the first logical optimization step.

Sometimes it might be a good idea to split the campaign into two separate ones for mobile and desktop traffic as the platforms usually have different average bids.

In what order you should optimize campaign variables?

In general, the recommended order of optimization is: platform, devices, browsers, OS, and OS versions.

Once you get to optimizing on source level you should make sure that your bid has been competitive enough to win high quality traffic. It’s recommended that you cut sources only after they are still not converting upon reaching 70-90% win ratio.

Always remember that cutting anything will lower the volume of traffic coming to your campaign. If you’re targeting a low volume GEO or a very specific region then it might be best to focus on adjusting bids of sources and targets before making cuts.

If you over-optimize your traffic you might accidentally limit your volume so much that even if you do become profitable these profits will never go above a single digit number.

giving-up-too-soon-png.11773

3. Giving up too soon

If you are a beginner affiliate hoping to invest $100 and become profitable within a week then you might feel seriously discouraged once that week passes and you’ve barely made a couple of conversions.

You really can’t have high expectations while starting affiliate marketing. As much as studying or doing courses is advised, you can only truly learn by testing. And testing takes time and money.

What would be an estimated budget to try affiliate marketing in practice? About $500 in the case of PPV or PPC traffic. This, of course, doesn’t mean that if you have a lot less you will never become profitable. It just simply means that in the majority of cases the smaller the budget the harder it is to find find a working campaign

If you spend $20 on a campaign with one lander and one creative and decide to give up because of poor results then you will most likely never be successful.

Affiliate marketing is all about testing. What verticals work where and with what type of traffic. Do your research and stick to your choices. You shouldn’t switch a niche when your first or second campaign doesn’t work out. Don’t be afraid to ask the community for help.

Test the campaign for 3-4 days and then use another 3-4 days on optimization. If the ROI is still very low then you might consider killing the campaign.

When considering switching the vertical altogether make sure to ask your affiliate network and traffic source representatives what’s performing best at a given moment.

Most expert affiliates have their favourite verticals or GEOs. Sometimes they specialize in a particular combo. That’s usually because they took time and effort to test all kinds of traffic and finally, they found a set up and a strategy that worked.

You should not give up after a couple of failed campaigns. Sometimes campaigns, landers or creatives need to be killed or stopped but it’s crucial that you always learn something from each attempt.

Keep a notebook or a google doc with your thoughts. Campaigns are made of many components so it’s good to analyse each and every one of them in order to draw conclusions about why they might have failed.

Affiliate marketing is not a quick profit scheme. It requires learning and testing and sometimes it might take a long while to start making profits after investing in the learning phase.

landing-page-png.11774

4. Poor landers

Majority of the time campaigns perform significantly better when using a lander. So, the first mistake you can make when it comes to landers is not using them. If you feel like the offer landing page is well made and should be enough to make a user convert then what we’d recommend is A/B testing – pre-lander vs. direct. That way you can really check whether your offer is in the 10% that will perform better without a lander but you will test the other option too, just to be safe.

Don’t be the lazy affiliate that expects quick profits without putting in the effort. Cases in which the offer converts better without a pre-lander are rather rare so it’s quite unlikely that one of your first campaigns will be like that.

Why should you use your own landing page?

Landing pages are the pre-selling point. They help to warm up the user and introduce whatever you want to sell them. They are inarguably a crucial factor influencing the performance of your campaigns.

That’s why direct linking or using the wrong pre-landers might be the reason your campaigns are failing.

Not everyone can afford spy tools at the beginning and that’s okay. But there are other ways of finding out what landing pages are performing best. Once again, asking the reps of a traffic source or affiliate network will be your best shot at getting reliable information about the kind of landers that work.

Simple offers with simple flows don’t require much thinking when it comes to landers but you should always watch out for the traffic network guidelines. Usually it’s easy to check what sort of landers are allowed and how aggressive they can be.

If you’re creating landers by yourself then you should pay close attention to the style of your offer page. Nothing says professionalism more than perfectly matched pre-lander and offer landing page.

Complete beginners sometimes make the mistake of using landers so different from the offer page that they don’t even advertise the same product.

Make sure your lander clearly states the instructions for how to convert. Whether you need the users to share their credit card numbers or download an app, use precise directions and explain the benefits of your product. Be as convincing as possible and use a simple CTA.

Still, you can never truly predict user preferences. Also, they might vary for different GEOs. It’s always recommended to test more than one landing page at once. Sometimes it’s enough to make cosmetic changes but sometimes using an entirely different angle might turn the tables on the potential of your campaign.

The appearance as well as the text on the lander can make a huge difference. Always make sure that creatives, lander and offer pages have no significant discrepancies or contradictions. They should be similar in style, angles and content. Watch out for grammar mistakes and typos.

You should also remember that while running campaigns in non-english speaking GEOs it’s best to translate landers and creatives or at least split test them against their english versions.

poor-offers-png.11775

5. Bad offers

Lastly, your campaigns might sometimes fail simply because of a bad offer. No amount of traffic filter optimization or creative pre-landers can make a user convert if the offer just isn’t interesting enough.

Sometimes it might be quite impossible to accurately judge which offer has potential. That’s why it’s always best to ask for recommendations. I can’t stress this enough – as a newbie, reaching out for help to network representatives and experts from the community is your best chance at making the right choices.

Also, you can’t get attached to the offers that you run. Even when you personally think they make sense it’s highly likely that if they don’t convert well it’s because the users aren’t interested in them.

Offers can be badly paired with GEOs, e.g. first time deposit (FTD) offers shouldn’t be run in Tier 3 countries where the population is much poorer than in, for example, Tier 1 countries.

Another mistake you might make is choosing the wrong offer for the wrong budget. Beginners should start with sweepstakes as it’s the easiest and the cheapest vertical to run. What they definitely shouldn’t start with are high payout offers which might seem enticing because of potential profits but they need a much more polished set up and higher testing budgets.

Make sure to research offers before you start running your campaigns. Again, you might use spy tools or ask around. Make sure you have a good combination of offers, landers, (optionally creatives) with GEOs and ad formats. Some offers might work significantly better with mobile traffic only so it would be a shame to mistakenly pair those up with desktop traffic.

Offer restrictions are crucial here as well. Your conversion will not be counted if it’s coming from the wrong GEO or platform so make sure you pay close attention to the offer description. You wouldn’t want to advertise a voucher to a shop that doesn’t exist in that particular location.

Are the products you advertise up to date? Sweepstakes with the newest iPhone model will surely perform much better than those with an outdated model.

Sometimes the offer might not convert because the market for it is just too saturated. Choosing the highest converting offer from the affiliate network can either work really well or really poorly. If everyone is running the same offer at the same time (using the same creatives) users will stop noticing it altogether. Sometimes a less popular offer might be a jackpot.

Overall, there is one thing that will help you determine why your campaigns are failing – it’s a tracker. Yes, it’s possible to start affiliate marketing without a tracking solution but it’s not possible to scale or truly know what works. Campaigns can fail on many levels and only using a tracker will allow you to know at which point of the funnel people are dropping out.

So, to summarize, what are the top 5 beginner mistakes?

  1. Not putting enough time and effort to test the traffic before expecting results.
  2. Not allowing your campaigns to gather enough significant data before beginning optimization.
  3. Stopping campaigns or offers and changing the whole strategy too soon or too often.
  4. Underestimating the power of good, quality pre-landers.
  5. Choosing the wrong offer and sticking with it for too long.

Hopefully, if you’ve made any of the mistakes described above, you will know now how to avoid or fix them.

7 Ways to Squeeze More Profits from Your Affiliate Marketing Campaigns

7 Ways to Squeeze More Profits from Your Affiliate Marketing Campaigns

It doesn’t matter if you are promoting affiliate marketing through content that you create on your site, paid ad campaigns or media buying across a wide range of sites… there is always going to be some extra money that can be made on top of what you are currently seeing. This is something all affiliate marketers will learn over time, however, not as many of them are willing to put in the time, work and effort to explore as many options as possible for increased profits.

When it comes to making more from your affiliate campaigns, it’s not just about increasing offer conversions or reaching new audiences. Sometimes it can be as simple as asking your affiliate network for a boost in payout, or simply knowing how to scale your budget the next time around. While a five percent increase might not seem like a ton of money at the time, if you are pushing a few hundred or even a few thousand leads per day, this can quickly add up over the course or a week or a month.

At the end of the day, the more profit you can make from your ad campaigns, the more money you will be able to put back into the promotion of such offers — which ultimately leads to more profit in your pocket.

To help with this process, today I wanted to highlight seven ways to make more with affiliate marketing, which was inspired by an infographic from Adcombo which can be seen below. Also be sure to check out their affiliate contest where they are giving away a $200,000 Ferrari California to their top affiliate, along with thousands of dollars in other prizes to several runner-ups.

1 – Select an Offer Based on Your Audience

Even before you start promoting an offer and think about using paid traffic sources, you should have a good understanding of the different type of affiliate offers out there. When joining an affiliate network, don’t pick an offer just based on its high payout. Affiliates need to have a basic understanding of the many different types of affiliate offers out there (CPA, CPC, CPI, CPS) and the actual conversion process that takes place. At the same time, it’s also important to make sure you joined multiple affiliate networks, so you can see if the offer is paying better elsewhere. All of this research and planning, in the beginning, will help for a more successful campaign down the road.

2 – Start with a Low Daily Ad Spend

To find the most success with affiliate marketing, you need to have patience and understand the process of studying your data. One area that newbie affiliates instantly have problems is with their budgeting and daily ad spend. When doing any type of media buying or creating a campaign with Google Adwords or Facebook Ads, it’s important to make sure you set a low daily ad spend when first starting out. Nearly all campaigns are going to be losers in the beginning, and this is a crucial time for your campaign and starting budget. Start slow, study your data and scale up as you learn more about how this campaign and it’s traffic sources may perform.

3 – Increase Conversions with Landing Pages

While nearly every affiliate network is going to provide their affiliates with a basic landing page, this doesn’t mean it’s going to be your best option. A perfect example of this would be in the world of online dating. Take a look at any of these killer landing pages that were provided by either the advertiser or the affiliate network. While being provided with a quality landing page is great, there is even more room for improvement if you are willing to put in the work — especially if you are going to drill down on your demographic audience and pre-sell them before sending them to your actual affiliate landing page. In short, landing pages are one of the best ways to convert audiences into high-quality leads and customers.

4 – Split Testing All Ad Copies

One of the most important factors to any affiliate or online marketing campaign is being able to split test your ad copy and landing pages. Just like a landing page can heavily swing conversions in a moments time, the text, images or persuasive language used in your ad copy can do the same as well. Most advertising platforms (like Adwords or FBADs) will already have a simple process or split testing and comparing different ad copies. You can see an example of how easy this is to set up here. Always remember to change just one component in each ad copy, so you know which is performing best. Once you have a variation of five or more ad copies in place, send traffic to each of them and start to weed out the poor performers.

5 – Split Test Different Traffic Sources

In addition to split testing the ad copy and creative used in your ad campaigns, it’s just as important to split test your traffic sources as well. This is pretty easy to set up when using a platform like Facebook Ads, as nearly all of the traffic will be coming from Facebook. However, if you were doing a Google Adwords campaign or running a massive native advertising campaign, you could be receiving traffic from thousands of different sites. Each of these traffic sources can be pinpointed with a unique site ID. Knowing which are delivering the best traffic and leads for your campaign is key. Always make sure you have pixel and conversion tracking in place to maximize the earnings of your ad campaigns.

6 – Use Retargeting to Increase ROI

Something we are all seeing a lot of lately, but not as many affiliate marketers have implemented yet, it’s retargeting advertising. The concept of retargeting advertising is simple. As the site owner or affiliate, you can place a tracking pixel on your site or landing page and after a visitor leaves your site, you can still deliver advertisements throughout sites (or even on Facebook). The benefit here is that you are reaching an audience that is already interested, engaged and was previously at your site. Click rates and conversions are also much higher, as you are delivering ads to someone who is already familiar with the service or product you are offering.

7 – Ask for a CPA Increase When Pushing Volume

Sometimes, one of the best ways to increase how much you are getting paid on an affiliate offer… is to simply ask. Affiliate networks are working off margins and this means two things — they is always going to be a little bit more money they can pay out on an offer, and the other thing is that they are always looking for more volume to send to their advertisers. If you are pushing legitimate and high-quality data to your affiliate offers, there is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to request an additional 5-15% more in payout on your best affiliate offers. Again, this really goes back to the relationship and history that you have in place. Always send a decent amount of traffic and leads before requesting an increase.

How to Increase Your Affiliate Earnings in 2017

It’s really crazy to think about, but affiliate marketing has been around for over 20 years now. With the billions of dollars that it’s generating annually for businesses around the world, there really is no end in sight — especially with the rise of mobile and technology becoming more accessible in third-world countries. In short… affiliate marketing is simply one of the best opportunities you have for making money online.

If you want to turn your affiliate marketing efforts into a real business and start working for yourself, you are going to need to work harder and smarter than the competition. Go niche with your affiliate focus, create better content and landing pages than the competition and also split-test, scale and grow on as many levels as possible.
