Why You SHOULD Target Tier 3 Countries – A Special Promotion!

Country tiers are a way to categorize countries based on different factors, but mostly by how strong and established their economies are. There are 3 different tiers and understating the differences between them can help advertisers to select a proper offer.

It’s important to know that every network categorizes countries differently, so make sure to check each and every network, rather than running offers automatically.

The main difference between the tiers is the payout, tier 3 countries usually have lower payouts that make advertisers avoid them, to begin with, but we are here to prove that there are a lot of advantages to tier 3 countries that you should consider:

  1. Lower rates: This is the most affordable tier out of all! If you are low on budget or simply don’t want to spend a lot of money on a new test – tier 3 is the tier for you!
  2. Huge volumes: Networks usually have double, if not triple the amount of traffic in tier 3 countries compared to tier 1 or 2 countries. More traffic equals a less saturated market.
  3. Less competition: As mentioned above, a lot of advertisers tend to avoid tier 3 countries, missing a lot of great opportunities, combined with a huge amount of traffic volumes is creates less competition on the same traffic, increasing your odds to make that offer profitable!

The most important thing to know is that you can reach positive ROI in these countries, just like in Tier 1 and 2 countries, if not greater!

And to make it even better, we’ve decided to release a special push-traffic promotion!
These are our Top Tier 3 countries:

  1. Brazil
  2. India
  3. Mexico

Spend $300 on these countries and get $50 back! (For advertisers who spent less than $250 on July)

OR

Increase your spending by 15% and get 10% back on the remainder! ($200 max, for advertisers who spent more than $20 on July)

  • For push campaign ONLY!

  • You can get to $300 by targeting only one GEO, or by targeting two or more GEOs and combining the spend in these campaigns.
  • You will get a $50 bonus once!

Gain Even More Out Of Your Ads

In order to make sure our publishers won’t just have a good stable present but also a bright future, we’ve been busy at work. After our Native floater banner, Interstitial ad, and extra push offer now comes a new and improved ad block bypass solution, which will allow our publishers to show ads and monetize 100% of their users.

While about 20%-30% of the users use various ad-block extensions in their browsers and mobile devices, the adblock bypass solution can be a crucial component in a publisher’s daily income. Though some ad networks have an ad block solution for pop, the new solution, fresh out of the AdMaven lab can also bypass blocking on the native floater ads as well, guaranteeing immediately a 20%-30% increase in our publishers’ income.

This new addition is making sure our publishers continue to make the most of their traffic and current ads, allowing them to keep their site clean, without the need to load it with even more ads to generate additional revenue.

We invite you to join today and add our Native Floater to your arsenal with the new adblock solution.

5 Tips to Becoming an ANTIFRAGILE Affiliate & Media Buyer

Lots of affiliates managed to succeed in the short term but only a few make a career out of it.

The secret is building yourself as an antifragile pro.

We have given some thought, collected over 10 years of our experience, and brainstormed what are the key elements in building yourself to success as a media buyer in the world of affiliation, meaning-making you an antifragile media buyer. 

Based on what we have seen over the years, we have come up with 5 key elements you should always look for.

  • Focus, Focus, Focus

Don’t try to shoot to all directions, focus on a few verticals only. Ask the account managers what’s working and what’s not – it’s better to start with something that worked for others and progress from there, after gaining success and knowledge you’ll be able to find potential offers by your own.

Real art is finding the balance between trying too little to trying too much, but it comes with experience. Try to invest 10% of your time to study new verticals and offers.

  • Don’t put all your eggs in one basket (or format in your case)

As part of being focused, always choose the format that works best for you and stick to it, yet it’s important to remember- not all formats stay forever. Always keep yourself updated with new formats that may emerge so you will be the first to succeed in them. this is where the margins are at.

A good example is push notifications that are booming for the past two years but now show a light decrease as regulation kicked in. It will stay for sure, but you can’t rely on it only. 

In page push, new tabs, etc should always keep your mind busy in parallel. 

  • Be patient, but cut to the chase

Give every offer you run its chance to perform on different sources and formats, but make sure to use blacklists right away once you reached somewhat statistical significance.

  • Keep it Data-oriented

Results and conclusions should be always data-driven. Adjust your a/b testing, live campaigns, and buying strategy according to the numbers.

This can be achieved only if you organize your campaign and tracking platform in a way that allows you to correctly track what’s going on in a required segment.

Make sure you adjust every few days once the campaign is running and showing nice results. Adjusting too often may lead you to a “local optimum”, as you blacklist too fast, or make decisions too quickly. You may see good results, but some points are better in terms of potential pro all around you. Look for them and push changes to the campaign now and then to keep it fresh and actively looking for those new points. 

  • Advise with others

There is no substitute for a piece of good advice from an experienced affiliate or traffic account manager.

Make sure you are up to date with trends, recommendations, and what’s hot by participating in forums, reading newsletters, and the most important – a conversation you initiate with others online or face to face.

STM and Afflift are great sources of knowledge.

AdMaven’s Insights On The Recent Chrome Updates And Their Effects on Push Advertising

While Google Chrome’s recent updates had a strong impact on the online advertising industry, there is one ad model that was significantly affected. As native push notifications became a key component in publishers’ ad income, the latest Chrome updates created a major impact on those important revenues.

One key feature, which was presented a few months ago and slowly implemented by Google over the past few months, specifically targeted push notifications and should get the attention of all publishers. (https://blog.chromium.org/2020/01/introducing-quieter-permission-ui-for.html)

Started gradually from February, Google launched new updates in their Chrome browser version regarding the push notification usage and activity. Those limit the publisher to show the push notification offer. Those limitations have impacted the users’ ability to register, therefore reducing the performance percentage and revenue from the native push notifications advertising.

In order for our publishers to maintain their high revenue and push performance, we here at AdMaven have developed the optimal solution:  

The additional push model – this feature is available for all publishers

 What is the additional push feature?

The additional push feature will work in case the standard push does not appear, for example, the user closes the original push offer or if google chrome blocks the push offer due to the new updates.

 How does it work?

When the user clicks the “Allow” button it will open a new small box with a standard push registration, the user will click it and register to our inhouse domain, creating a 2-click push registration instead of the standard 1-click process.

This 2 click push is also available for publishers who wish not to place the 1-click push for any reason as a first push offer for users.

 Is the new push feature suitable for HTTP domain owners?

The 2-click push can work on every domain including HTTP domains as well, so every publisher can benefit and profit from this model.

Get The Missing Piece For The Perfect Push Campaign

Do you know that feeling when you have finally found the one? That one top offer which you just know is going to convert?

You choose your creatives, set up a campaign, anxiously awaiting the moment of truth but then… nothing happens. 

Most affiliates would probably stop their campaign immediately, ditching the offer and on to the quest of finding something new, but what if we told you that there are quite a few things you can do?  

Our optimization team is happy to share with you some tips and tricks that can make a significant difference when running a push campaign on our platform!

How to set your daily budget

On Ad-Maven’s platform, you have the option to limit your daily campaign budget and to choose how you would like to spend it – evenly over 24 hours or ASAP.

Our recommendation is to set a daily budget that’s at least x5 more than your CPA goal or a minimum of $50 daily.

Setting a daily budget which is too low may significantly affect the amount of traffic you are getting and therefore your chances to get conversions.

Recommended Bid

Having an awesome offer and beautiful creatives won’t help you if you don’t have the right bid for it. Not only the GEO affects the bid you should set, but also the device, the OS, or every other specific targeting you choose. Don’t forget – you are competing with other advertisers for each impression, every impression you lose could have been your next conversion. 

At each point, you can use our recommended rate card or contact our account managers to get up-to-date bids.

Add our Postback link

Adding a postback will significantly help you optimize your campaigns. In addition, our account managers will be happy to guide you through the optimization process. If you have the will, we have the way!

Don’t have an account manager yet? If you spend over $200 daily, you’ll get a dedicated account manager from our team.

Bid adjustments by publisher feed

Last but not least, and probably the most important tip we can share.

In push campaigns, there is no connection between the user and the source. Therefore, instead of blacklisting/whitelisting sources and potentially losing great users, we allow you to set a different bid for each publisher feed – allowing you to optimize your campaign a lot more accurately and reaching a positive ROI faster.

You can read about how to adjust your bid here.
