The Wealthy Affiliate Platform

My WA app is gone..didn't notice till now. Anybody know where it is? Not in play store anymore either.

I cannot find mine either assumed it was not longer used

Well. Cool to know.
Hopefully they update and repost.. I would use this often if it's more responsive

I have never heard of an app for WA and I have been here for quite awhile now. If there was one maybe someone put it up to hack into peoples account. We would have to ask Kyle or Carson to see if there really was an legit app for WA.

Hey Tom. Yeah I had a mobile app s while back. It worked fine while on the move. Its not in the play store anymore on Google. Thanks for responding.

Pay Per Click Marketing

I have CJ, clickshare, clickbank, linkshare, share a sale and Flexoffers. Plus a few private merchants.

Any others I should look at? Thanks all!

Hi, Read the small print at Clickbank. Before they will payout they require a few methods of payment. If you are not active they deduct $1 then $5 per month from your account.
Cheers,
Mike

I haven't heard much good about clickbank but no conversions on my side doesn't give me any data to work with.

Thanks for this. I hadn't heard about it.

There are loads! MoreNiche, Paydot, JVZoo etc. start getting a product out there and promoting it

Or even better, products!!

You're an affiliate now Don, even better a wealthy affiliate, and the products/services you can promote are endless, meaning the sky is the limit my friend!

Man I'm promoting! From companies right down to one single item.
That's why I was gonna get the ppc information and get seen a little better and more often.

BTW, I have seen 2 PPC's. Pay per click and pay per call. Are they the same? I have an eBay associated account that has PPC but they call it pay per CALL.??

umm no i'm not too familiar with pay per call, that's seems to be something fairly new to the affiliate industry.. also, you may want to take caution with PPC if you're not too sure on how to go about using it.. or atleast start off with a small budget and optimize from there

Yeah buddy as I stated earlier, I am gonna go through the training again. Its been a long time since I did it.. Might as well do it again.
Yeah so I belong to Ebay Enterprise Affiliate Network....They have regular affiliate ads and then they offer a ppc, so I checked it out and it was pay per call??? I signed up. They said they were going to call me.
Believe me, I would rather watch grass grow than get hung up on all day if I gotta call people. That has to be the worst. Although I am nice until they start snapping at me.

I can recommend JVZoo.com I find it easier to use than ClickBank. (I'm still to start earning commissions from any affiliate programs.) ~Marion

OK so I've been using these and yes Amazon as well. I have 3 sites up and running. The ads are great and the analytics look good. For being new, I get about 1,000 visitors/month. (Need that to be per hour) but bounce rate is between 20-35% between them.

I just dont like all the different companies and different platforms.
I hate CJ because it is super slow, just to get rejected. Then I contact the merchant directly and get what they call "white listed"...they over ride the denials..but still no conversions. One had 46 clicks just yesterday.... thinking about PPC...any advice on this?

Hey Don,

For being new getting 1000 visitors per month at a 20-35% bounce rate is awesome. The reasons for lack of conversions are either 1) targeting the wrong people or 2) the sales page of the vendor is not up to par (that happens way more than you would think).

As for using PPC I am all for it but please, please, please, go through ALL of Kyle's training on PPC before venturing out. He shows how to keep your campaigns ultra relevant which is crucial when doing PPC. Otherwise, you are very likely to pay way too much for little to no conversions.

Best Regards,
Jim

Got it Jim. Thanks. I am redoing the ppc training again. Probably do it a few times.

There are MILLIONS of affiliate programs... just look! :)

Well I don't even really know it means. But I had this feeling they were counting me as a visitor because I thought it was crazy. But I made sure that I was excluded from analytics data.

Is the 1000 count per site... or a cumulative total? I get roughly that per month too... but my bounce rate is closer to 65!

Its 1000 for one, 965 for the second and just over 800 for the new one I just put up about a month ago...that one is taking off but ZERO cash flow.

800 on a month old site (IMO) is pretty impressive! You must have good promotion and nifty niches.

I will pm you

type a product or product category into Google followed by affiliate program. You will be amazed at what you find.

Yes I've done this..I actually picked up 2 companies that didn't have affiliate marketing and we have side deals.

Hey Don,

As Peter (@PGuirguis) stated, there are thousands out there. I believe you have the major ones. There's also Amazon. It's better to focus on programs you are actually going to promote. Advertisers on cj.com and to a lesser extent, linkshare.com will drop you if you sign up for them and you don't do anything with it after a while.

Best Regards,
Jim

Amazon will also drop you if you don't have a sale within 90 days of joining. ~Marion

I'm waayyyy over 90 days with Amazon. Still works

Good to hear I'm about 89 days in with no sales.

I think its 6-months now. Pretty sure they changed it. Thanks for reminding me about this btw, I have a question I need to ask.

This is what I assume as well. I've always been leery of having too many programs due to the fact of having to "slice the pie" into too many pieces. With too many affiliates there's less of a chance of keeping them active.

Over 90 huh??? It's good to know they've still got faith in you!

That's the thing.. Amazon has absolutely everything. But when I get onone of those sites and ssearch for merchants for s key word item, I end up applying for most of them because I'm sitting there anyway. Most get approved (except CJ) . Their site is sooooo slow

What exactly is your niche? It seems we are pretty much in the same lesson. ;) Blessings!
Hilda

I have 3. But I am done with lessons. I just go back through all the time to make sure I got everything...I just decided today that since my 3 sites are running and I have about 600 merchants, that I would "try" PPC and get that top page and see if I get conversions

hah bout a thousand more bro! question is whether or not you want to promote programs within those networks or not.... there will be millions of promotable products, just don't offer the scamful ones, hope that helps..

I just can't seem to wrap my head around something that a 12 year old is obsessed with. I am on linkdIn, G+ and Twitter. To be honest, I only really like G+ and LinkdIn.

I know how you feel and you are active on the best one according to an eminent member on here. I don't like FB, don't mind Twitter ( very little effort). You are right, FB is funny, people putting up pictures of their dinner and endless self affirmation photo shopped onto images of babies and puppies:) .Keep the faith mate I just plough through them in a few minutes each day.

I just don't see how telling people that I really most likely don't know, that I'm eating ice cream right now. Makes very little sense to do this. That is mostly what I see.
Like a disassociation from reality. Zuckerberg has brainwashed the next Gen and brought the last Generation along for the ride.
I'm sure its all businesses to him.
If someone is actually making a good living using analysis from FB only, please let us all know.
I'm still not convinced.
BTW, I'm done with my ice cream.

Asking if it was good would be a silly question. The question that raises most concerns or curiosities..

What flavor?

Chocolate with chocolate syrup. Best question all day by far. It was good. Guess I can do this. Maybe FB has a future with me.

Or not...

Hi Don, F/book has its uses, the aim is to lift your online profile for your business. blessings Bethamy.

You got my vote

I hate Facebook with a passion - but the reasons are too lengthy to go into here. Despite it's annoyances it can be a useful tool which is why I will probably use it - grudgingly and with a business mindset only - when I find my way back into things. You could do the same - dislike it but tolerate it as a means to bring in traffic. Use it for what worth you can get out of it and spread the word in as many places as you can.

I have Pinterest too. I do like that. Some pics can lose me for hours.

Ha Ha Ha!
Need that one, and you are not alone. Although Facebook do have it's advantages. Though I know what you mean.. It doesn't give off the feel of professionalism.

What is it you dislike about it? Is it your connection with friends and family on it? Or the style of it? Find it complicating?

After understanding more about the features of Facebook such as pages. I've grown to be more interested in it and the viral capabilities if used right.. I'm only just getting grasp of it myself.

I don't know really. I think it has alot to do with trust. I am always mindful that the internet is forever and I'm not sure I would post anything other than for making money on the web.
If I do, its usually very vague.
Guess I just don't trust anything. Keeps me safe as I lay under my tin foil bed spread!

Ha Ha Ha! Good insulation at least..

Pinterest I like also. Keeping up on article photos is important to gain the benefits of Pinterest.

As for trust... Yeah, Facebook has had a few burps.. Say the least... This is why I try to keep business and personal separate. If you're into FaceBook for personal then trust may be a thing.. If it's business, then I see little to hide from them.

I would never trust them with any private information, or security related info.

hahaha, I hated it at first but a lot of my friends and family are on it so I eventually caved and now I'm used to it. I feel about Twitter the way you feel about FB... makes now sense to me.

If i post an ad of say 150x150 there is room next to it. I want to fill that spot with another banner ad. Using html over and over I've been experimenting with no luck.

Hi Don, I neglected to mention that you could try Fiver if you needed some photo enhancements without buying the program. Alternatively your local digital photo shop would probably have this program, just load your photos on a USB stick. blessings Bethamy.

Hi Don, You can make the photos 'pop', by using Photoshop elements. There was a member who told us how to change background colours, a couple of months ago. I can't remember if you can do it via 'the kitchen sink icon'. Blessings Bethamy.

Thanks I will look at it. I downloaded Gimp but it's going to take some time to figure that out. Wish there was some training on that.

You will want to use a column shortcode. The Ezcolumn plugin will let you do this.

Of course these can mess with a responsive theme, so you will want to make sure they translate well.
I have found that the Divi Theme(paid) from Elegant Themes handles these well. If you want to investigate this let me know and I will send you a link.

Thanks...I got the link from you. After doing a little digging, I was concerned about messing up the theme. I will check out the one you sent.

With small banner ads of that size, I've had luck in the past with pasting the code within the same text box...one right under the other. This automatically placed them side by side on the page. Obviously your theme must allow for the space as well.

Not certain what you're trying to do with the colors and backgrounds, sorry. I hope I was of help with the first part though.

Ben

Yes I will try that. I tried placing on the same line that the first one ended. No luck. Colors: I just want to change things on ONE page but it changed them all. I mean its 2014, man on the moon almost 50 years ago, NSA all up in our biz.
I just wanna change a color and move a banner.


I recall that WA member John ("mackiejw") knew of a way to isolate changes on one page, without affecting other pages... but I don't recall his method. Maybe he can be enlisted to assist!

gosh seems like you have some great idea's and I am just do not know... if you cannot find the answer here try live chat, think it might depend on what theme you have

OK..good idea. Thanks
