Hey All,

I recently came across a Charles Ngo article on mobile pop ads. In it he mentions that mobile pops are a great way to get started in affiliate marketing because they give you a feel for optimization, they're relatively cheap and you don't have to build ads.

I thought this community may be interested so wanted to share my notes.

To be clear, mobile pop ads are interruption marketing (i.e. visitors do not expect or want to see your ads).

Anyone can get started with mobile pop traffic by following these 6 steps:

1. Set up your campaign on Voluum, the tool you’ll use to track everything. This way you can optimize your campaigns to get the best bang for your buck

2. Identify and sign up for at least one mobile traffic pop source
  • PropellerAds
  • PopAds
  • WWWPromoter
3. Find mobile offers to promote from affiliate networks
  • YepAds
  • ClickDealer
  • Avazu
4. Build a landing page
  • Make sure it’s lightning fast
  • Opt for simple images
5. Get dedicated (as opposed to shared) hosting
  • A CDN like Rackspace
6. Cheap with competitive intelligence tools
  • A spy tool like Adplexity lets you see thousands of landing pages & campaigns that other affiliates are running
Offers that work well with these sorts of campaigns include:
  • App Installs - Like Antivirus and utilities
  • Lead generation - Getting visitors to fill in forms
  • Vouchers - Work well if you can localize your marketing
  • Trials - For health and beauty offers
  • Sweepstakes - To win devices like iPhones and tablets
You’ll find the complete article as well as a report on 146 mobile traffic sources here: https://charlesngo.com/mobile-pop-traffic-popunder-popup

To be clear, mobile pop ads are interruption marketing (i.e. visitors do not expect or want to see your ads).

This is why affiliate marketers have a bad name, why as a group so many people hate them, and why there are so many ad-blockers and pop-up blockers on the market.

This is the first time I have heard the term "interruption marketing" but it's really just another name for spam and browser hijacking.
