I’m about to explain how you can make $24,944,992.12 in 48 hours from the comfort of your own swimming pool. I know you guys are thinking “Mr Green, you’re speaking absolute bullocks“, my response to this is, you are correct.
I don’t know why I said that. I just didn’t have any exciting opening paragraphs for the tools I’m about to discuss.
I built the Plenty of Fish Ad Uploader about a year and a half ago. The launch was received by a great response so since then I haven’t made any big updates. If it ain’t broke, why fix it, right? Wrong. Mr Green loves breaking stuff. So here are the new changes to the ad uploader.
1. 310 x 110 bulk ad uploading function available.
2. Split testing by sex available.
3. Age group split testing available.
I’m not going to pitch that you buy this because I wouldn’t buy it myself. It’s not like it will save you lots of time and take the stress out of the campaign creation process. It’s not like the majority of big affiliates on POF use the tool…that would be crazy talk.
If you do, for some weird reason, want it you can get it from two places:
1. Mr Green blog here for $100.
2. Free if you are a Stackthatmoney member.
I’d now like to introduce you to…
The newest POF tool on the block.
Disclaimer: This is not my tool. My Kiwi mate Matt built it. I do not get internet monies for promoting it. It will not make you a billionaire within three days (more like four days).
Matt: Driftnet was created with two main goals in mind. The first was to make it easier to get a grasp on bigger campaigns and the second was make remedial tasks quicker. It’s basically a new interface for POF.
Driftnet makes it easier to compare different ad groups and see what creatives are performing within a group.
When creating a typical campaign I might create six different campaigns in POF so I can split test across age ranges. The amount of campaigns grows exponentially with every filtering element I add, so I can end up in a situation where a single campaign actually has over 20 campaigns in POF.
- The search function allows you to group these campaigns together so you can see the sole campaigns you are concerned with at the time and then pull and filter on the CTR or clicks for the creatives.
In the image below I have searched for a specific campaign name so I just see my six campaigns, one for each age range. I have then pulled the data from two of them and at a glance I can compare stats across them. I can also sort by CTR and almost instantly deactivate poorly performing creatives.
- Driftnet removes elements from the screen so you only have exactly what you need.
From personal experience and the feedback of others, I’ve realised that the large graph at the top of the campaign page isn’t helpful as affiliates tend to have their own reporting means, so that has been removed. The local time in Vancouver has also been added which helps international affiliates like myself.
- The ability to generate a profit report.
Many people were having to copy their spend and conversion reports into Excel, and then join them together using VLOOKUPs and other time consuming and tedious methods. This feature alone saves lots of time if you track your conversions with POF.
You can purchase Driftnet from Matt’s site for $29.95. Or, if you are a STM member you can find a generous discount code there.
