Clickfather Update 8-29-11


This is my second post of the summer and boy has it been a busy one! I have been traveling quite a bit around the world.

I am now testing on a new platform with an API and very excited at the prospect of having an auto approve account at my disposal again allowing me to test several iterations at once not worrying about limits or half my ads getting approved while the other half not getting approved for any apparent reason. I will post an update on my progress next week.

Why nothing beats doing ads by hand...

So I used this awesome tool that automates making ads…I have been using it for about a month without incidence. Today of course it glitches and in an hr I lost $1,088.77. Not a horrible loss but imagine I “set it and forgot it” for a day? I am going back to the old tried and true method. From now on for my personal buys making my own ads by hand.

Launching a Newbie contest!

I started spending a bit of time on a forum called Stackthatmoney.com and I am impressed daily at the amount of knowledge people share on that forum. The moderators are awesome and on point. I decided to launch a contest just for new media buyers on that forum.

Here are the details of the contest:

The Put Up or Shut Up Contest
A MINIMUM of $100,000 available in cash and prizes!

One thing I love is to help new Affiliates that have drive and determination in succeeding in Internet Marketing. I have personally made it a point to train and mentor at least 10 media buyers a year. Many graduate after working with me into awesome media buyers and those that did not possess discipline or a strong work ethic did not. The biggest challenges I see for new Affiliate Marketers is #1, guidance & #2, money to scale your campaign.

So after spending considerable time on the stackthatmoney.com forums I decided to start a new challenge and contest.

ASE and LeadsCon

I just got back from NYC literally a few hours ahead of hurricane Irene. Besides attending the Affiliate Summit and Leads Con we had an awesome super media buyer private event for Stack That Money Members at Salute in NYC and came up with new ways for us all to work together.

We are planning another event for Ad tech NYC as a pre party on Sunday November 7th 2011. I will post additional details about it in mid October with a chance to RSVP.
