I’ve been an affiliate with NeverBlueAds for quite a while now, but I had stopped using their network for quite a long period of time. It was nothing personal or against the network, I was simply running offers elsewhere. It wasn’t till I met up with my friend and VP of Affiliate Marketing at NeverBlueAds, Jordan at AdTech and we talked about setting a few campaigns again. Once I got back home, I set up a few links on my network of sites and the rest is history. April was my first month of generating revenue with them and I ended up with $1950 in earnings… five months later and several updates later, I am now pleased to announce I passed the five figure mark with NeverBlueAds in August, ending the month with $10,818 in earnings.
Keep in mind, I did not go from having nothing to making $1950 in that first month. I had a network of web sites to run offers on, but there has been plenty of testing and monetization along the way. Anyone can have a high traffic site and throw offers up on them and make a few bucks, but continually increasing your earnings is the skill to master. Even with the summer slow down, I was able to continually increase earnings with NeverBlue Ads. Some easy steps to improve monetization on your sites are, using blue text links, change advertisement placements through your sites, test hot zones and see where people are clicking. Another tip that will almost always improve your numbers is to USE BLUE TEXT LINKS instead of AD BANNERS. People want content, not advertisements. Blend in affiliate offers with your site content and your clicks and conversions will soar!
Earnings from April through July were mainly all from general site traffic across my network of sites. It wasn’t til the end of July that I started to play around in the PPC market. PPC is definitely what helped push me over the $10k mark in August. Just like placing advertisements on a web site, PPC is all about monetization, but can be even more risky as you are backing ad dollars behind every click. NeverBlueAds has an awesome variation of ads to test in the ppc market.
While I’ve been super busy over the past two weeks moving into my new place, I have had a few ppc campaigns on auto-run. It’s a lot of fun to see your commissions increase daily, while on auto-pilot, but my credit cards are also getting billed on autopilot! 🙂 Be sure to set limit campaigns and keep an eye on your campaign results, a few bad days of low conversions or overspending, can kill your profits for the month.
