Hey guys! I’m back! There were so many things I needed to do that I didn’t have much time to blog. Here’s what I’ve been up to over the past month:
After launching the video training course for the PPV Profit System, I soon realized that I should add a new campaign case study to it for my existing members. I’ve participated in many online training courses, so I know that case studies should be new and not presented through PowerPoint slides. For this reason, I decided to launch a new campaign and record on video every step I took to create and run it.
Of course, I wasn’t sure whether my campaign would be profitable or not. Not all offers are profitable. I just wanted to show members in my portal to know how my strategy works. So I created campaigns to promote three different offers. I recorded everything I did, every day. Fortunately, one of the campaigns has been profitable and is still generating bucks for me. The members in the class have also given me good feedback.
I hardly touched my other PPV campaigns in the previous month because there were too many things I had to do. Also, for many months these campaigns have been bringing in pretty stable income. It might fluctuate each day, but when I check the overall performance each month, it’s quite stable. When some offers expired or their conversion rate dropped, I just ran the iMacro to change the offer for all of my campaigns. This can be done reasonably quickly. So I changed my main focus to other things, which I’ll describe in the next few paragraphs.
One of my friends has recently been doing amazingly well on Teespring, so I decided to go back to Teespring. The last time I did this was last year, when I could scrape User ID from Facebook. At that time, it was very easy to generate thousands bucks through Teespring. (Read more about this here: Discover how I made $3,893 within a week with Teespring!) Anyway, when Facebook started banning scraping software and prohibited people from using UIDs to promote products, I quit Teespring and returned to PPV.
Anyway, I my close friend has gotten great results, so I asked her to teach me how to do it (again). I have created more than 40 t-shirt campaigns, and some of them were profitable. It’s been a bit like learning PPV all over again, but this is more fun. You have to research what to sell and who you’ll sell it to.
A few weeks ago, I purchased Teespring’s training course. It’s taught by Albert, the owner of the Pi Day campaign. If you don’t know what this is, just go to Teespring and check out the t-shirt that the man on the front page is wearing. That shirt was made by Albert, and it’s Teespring’s highest-selling campaign. This course is VERY awesome. He teaches you everything you need to know to use Teespring. More than that, he reveals what he did with his Pi Day campaign, which generated more than 25,000 sales. The course was a good investment for me.
Software as a Service is what I’ve developed for a while. The one you might know is AffLanders, which is a PPV landing-page builder. I created the first version by myself two years ago. It has worked very well for some people, so I decide to create a second version that has more features. Anyway, I don’t have much time, and I’ve almost forgotten how to write code, so I hired a developer to create AffLanders Version 2.0.
The new version has been finished for a while and is now in a beta phase. I’ve asked my developer to add more templates, develop the user interface, create a clone function and integrate the spy tool that I got from BoxOfAds. So you can now create PPV landing pages, copy other landing pages, and spy on PPV campaigns using this tool.
I have asked my developer to add some opt-in templates to the system. Members can create the PPV landing page to create an email list. It should be done really soon.
Apart from AffLanders, my friend and I have created another service. It’s a link-shortening service we initially developed for people who want to split-test their destination link. I use this tool with Prosper202 to do split-testing campaigns, because we can’t rotate traffic using Prosper202. If you’re interested, you can use it here. It’s called Flowy.
Making some bucks from Mobile Apps was one of my New Year’s resolutions. I just started doing it and sent two apps to AppStore last month. They haven’t given me a good result yet, so I’m back to doing research. I found that I made many mistakes and that my keyword research strategy wasn’t good enough. I have hired two graphic designers to create the graphics for the next two games. If it goes according to plan, I should soon be adding two more apps to my portfolio.
My last trip was in Taipei three months ago, so I need a short break. I’ll visit Hokkaido in the next two weeks. Hokkaido is an awesome place for me. The weather and food is fantastic. I was there once last year, but I went there with a tourism service. This time, I’ll go as a backpacker, so I need to plan my trip. I’ll update you when I get back.
These are some of the things I’ve been working on in the past month. I think I have to decrease the frequency of my blog posts for a while, since there’s even more stuff I need to do right now. Anyway, thank you for visiting my blog!
