No joke.

Why I’m No Longer an Affiliate!

That’s right, after being a full time super affilate since 2006 I’m out of the affiliate game!

Why?

Because now I’m on MERCHANT SIDE of the equation, with my own affiliate program!

Here’s the story…

Peter, from VTMarketer.com (if you have not read his blog, I highly recommend it), and I partnered up a while back and decided to team up and start our own software company, Boost Software, Inc. (Explains why I haven’t blog for a while – LOL)

Peter was one of our PPC Classroom coaches and is the top software affiliate marketer I know. We’ve both been successful super affiliates in the software space for many years, so it only made sense to take it to the next level.

Here’s our main product: PC HealthBoost

And we’ve JUST launched our affiliate program. Click Here for more information on our PC HealthBoost Affiliate Program.

Why Promote PC HealthBoost?

PC HealthBoost is NOT your typical poorly coded, cheap registry cleaner that was put together to make a quick buck. We paid a team of hired highly experienced developers around $150k to develop this program. Over 1000 hours went into its development.

We left no stone unturned. We spend 6 months just bug testing our program to make sure it is as stable as possible. We overhauled the interface multiple times to get it RIGHT.

Many merchants will use their affiliates to debug their program for them – not cool. We hired a profesional quality assurance team that cost us $3k a month to rigorously bug test our program.

Why did we do all this? To get the conversion rate as high as possible.

Since we launched PC HealthBoost on Adwords our conversion have been SKY HIGH. Check out this screenshot of our download to sale conversion rate:

Click Here for More Information on PC HealthBoost Affiliate Program.

Here’s the COOLEST PART:

Peter and I will be your dedicated affiliate manager for this offer.

If you have any question or need any help you can email us directly.

If you make 50 sales a day for 30 days, we’ll get on the phone and personally coach you to getting that up to 300-500 sales a day.

Here’s what you need to do next:

1. Go to our affiliate page and Enroll in our Affiliate Training (it’s FREE, just give your name and email to optin)

2. On the affiliate training page click on the blue ‘Support’ Tab to get our personal contact information.

Bottom line is, we GET IT, we’ve been affiliates for many years and we know that high conversion rates, low refund rates, and solid affiliate support are absolutely essential. Our goal is to create a DREAM affiliate offer.

P.S. I forgot to mention we’re offering CRAZY BONUSES of $2-$5 per sale, depending on your net monthly sales volume. This is on TOP OF 75% commission per sale.

What the Deal with QS Anyway?

OK some of you are asking “Why all the posts on Google Quality Score? I mean, damn, I got banned from google I can’t promote any affiliate stuff on there!?!”

Well, I’m shifting gears a bit. Focus of this blog is now MORE for people who have their own product who are using paid search. Times are changing, if you’re trying to promote products as an affiliate on Google, then GOOD LUCK, because you’re gonna need it.

And why am I focusing so much about quality score in particular? QS is the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR to success with Google Adwords.

You could have the highest converting landing page, your bids and placements perfectly optimized, but if your QS sucks you’ll get a drizzle of traffic versus someone who has a killer QS.

I’ve already talked about a lot of factors that go into quality score and there’s a bunch more I still have to talk about.

One powerful trend you need to know about is that factors that affect your natural search engine ranking are playing a bigger and BIGGER part in Adwords QS.

Some of these include:

  • Authority of your site and PageRank
  • Amount of unique content on your landing pages
  • How often the content on your site is updated
  • Incoming links to your landing page
  • How long visitors spend on your page and thier BOUNCE RATE
  • How FAST your site loads
  • How often people click a link on your page
  • How relevant your landing page is to the keywords
  • The age of your domain

I could go on, but you get the idea. You have to build a real site that of substantial value to the visitor, and continue to build it up over time.

Don’t worry about whether you get natural search engine traffic or not, taking these steps will substantially increase your traffic and lower your CPC.

I’m talking a night and day difference, the difference between making $500/day profit versus $5000/day profit.

Adwords Profit Machine

No, it’s not the name of a “get rich quick” product.

“Adwords Profit Machine” is my nickname for what’s without question the MOST POWERFUL feature Adwords has to offer.

When this feature first came out it was a bit buggy and I really didn’t trust it. Now it’s F’N AMAZING!

Put campaign in the machine, and get $$$$ out the other end.

NO JOKE!

What the hell am I talking about?

I’m talking about the Google Conversion Optimizer. It’s HOT. Absolutely my favorite tool, works great for search and content.

Here’s a few tips on getting the most out of the conversion optimizer:

  • Make sure you have a few 100 conversions at the very least, before you turn it on. The more data it has, the better it works.
  • Set your CPA value at 30-50% above the payout of your offer.
  • Give it 2-3 weeks before you start seeing some HUGE jumps in ROI
  • After 2 weeks or so, you can adjust CPA values (up or down) at the adgroup level if you want to improve ROI or buy more traffic.

Conversion optimizer optimizes at a level you CANNOT DO MANUALLY. It’s adjust bids based on: location, placements, operating system, etc, etc, etc.

Oh and you don’t have to worry about separating search partners from google search, it will adjust the bids on ALL of them individually. :)

If you’re not using this tool, you’re at a HUGE disadvantage. And don’t waste your money on a 3rd tool, that can’t do 1/2 of what Conversion Optimizer can.

Bad Web Hosting : Silent ROI Killer

I learned a invaluable lesson yesterday, this is something that most people COMPLETELY overlook.

I had 8 HOURS OF DOWNTIME overnight. :(

No, this was NOT shared hosting, it was a dedicated Mediatemple Nitro $750/month supped up box.

They’re response to the downtime : “Sorry for the inconvenience”!?!

Needless to say, I immediately switched over to another web hosting company that I’ve been using for years.

What really makes me SICK to my stomach is all the potential sales I lost with Mediatemple due to smaller, intermittent downtime. Which I’m sure happened frequently-might explain some of those mysterious sales gaps I’ve been seeing.

What’s worse is that my business partner had to get the server up and running again, mediatemple did NOTHING. And they didn’t even notify me that my server was down.

“So Amit, what are you going to do to prevent this in the future?”

It’s all about having the right systems in place.

Well, here’s Rule #1: Do NOT trust ANY web hosting company, EVER.

Rule #2 : Constantly monitor you’re uptime, using a service such as Pingdom.

Rule #3: Use an enterprise DNS service that allows you to setup a DNS Failover. In other words you can setup your domain to automatically point to a different server if your main server goes down. I recommend using 2 DIFFERENT web hosting companies for this setup.

First things, first: setup a monitoring service such as Pingdom and see if your web host is screwing you over!

Account History versus Account Quality Score

“Another Adwords post?”

YES, that’s going to be my main focus for a while. Let’s just say there’s LOTS of GREAT STUFF I’ve picked up recently.

Here’s are 2 big BIG question:

  • How important is the age of your account?
  • If you ran low QS campaigns when you first started OR if any of your campaigns ever got slapped, will it effect future campaigns?

Let’s tackle the first question…

ACCOUNT AGE

Account age, or account history as they call it, is HUGE in the beginning.

When you first start a new account you get slapped with a huge penalty, about 30-40% higher CPC and much less traffic, until you establish around 4 months (give or take) of payment history.

If you’re starting a new account THIS IS A BIG DEAL. If you’re getting hammered with high CPC and wondering where all the traffic is, know that it will pass in a few months!

You gotta protect your account like you’re life depended on it, because starting fresh can be serious pain in the ass and VERY costly, until you rebuild your account history.

ACCOUNT QUALITY SCORE

Here’s the flip side…

If you started an Adwords account when you were a newbie and did some dumb stuff, or you’ve had a couple campaigns slapped (QS : 1/10), then I got some bad news for you:

Your account will NEVER perform as well an account that had has never been slapped (or never had a poor quality score history).

Ever heard stories of so and so killing in a particular market after starting a new Adwords account?

Having a pristine account is HUGE.

So what should you do? I would recommend starting a gold account, where you run ONLY fully optimized campaigns. Run some small campaigns on it for 6 months or so (high CTR, high QS stuff only) so it can build a SOLID account quality score and build account history.
