The following Masterclass will help you demystify your responsibilities as new blood in this industry.

Ready to take the plunge?
Day 1 – Myths and affiliate definitions
Welcome to Day 1 of our Masterclass
We often hear “earn easy money online,”, “make billions from your couch,”, “how to build a fortune, being a single parent of thirteen kids with no legs, but an Internet connection” and other such catchphrases.
At the end of the day, don’t we all want just that (minus the leg issues)?
You probably have the common sense to know such things in life really are too good to be true: these ads are often misleading and deceitful. Most of them want to make you think that quick and big money is attainable without any real effort.
While it’s true that a fair number of people have found success by earning money online, you have to understand that for many, it takes years of hard work and experience to reach this point.
But you seem ready to pull up your sleeves and start learning, or you wouldn’t be here reading this masterclass, right?
Stick with us… and learn how the best affiliates in adult got their slice of this billion-dollar pie.
1 — It’s easy
We said it before; it is not easy. Just like any business really, you’ll need to put in the effort if you want to see results. There’s no magic wand here: it’s all about perseverance, dedication and learning how to adapt.
The affiliate marketing industry withstands a constant influx of new affiliates, one of the reasons being how hard it can be, especially when you’re just starting out.
Here’s the truth that you might not want to know:
- It’s time-consuming
- It’s competitive
- It’s very dynamic
So if you’re serious about this business model, prepare to face, and hopefully overcome, many challenges.
2 — It’s a “Get Rich Quick” scheme
Who wouldn’t want to strike gold on the first try? We see how some super affiliates are making mad bank—sometimes as much as $100,000 per month or more—and think it might happen to us overnight. You want to boast about buying the latest Tesla model or take a selfie with your McMansion.
Reality check: super affiliates or for that matter, any successful affiliate (as in, who makes money online) worked their asses off to reach the point where they are today. If you’re blogging, sales might only pop up after the 3-6 month mark.
Do you see the problem?
Waking up from this “nightmare” by realizing that affiliate marketing takes time, dedication, planning and effort—it’s not exactly what you would call instant gratification, right?
3 — Once you’re set, it’s all passive income
Picture this: You’re laying on a sandy white beach (or bathing in rooftop pool), sipping a drink while watching your bank account grow, doing nothing but enjoying life.
Nice, isn’t it? The truth is, unless you win the lottery, this is unlikely to be you.
Passive income might be the ultimate goal you’re pursuing, but know that there’s no such thing. Affiliates need to adapt, no matter how lucrative their campaigns, blogs, etc. are. The upkeep costs to remain competitive are REAL.
Surprised? There are literally millions of predators in this jungle we call the Internet—sometimes hunting down the same prey and ready to reduce the competition at all costs.
So while you’re relaxing, others are coming up with new strategies to leave you with nothing but bones to gnaw on.
Let’s speak Affiliate from now on, shall we?
The words “affiliate marketing,” “conversion,” “provider,” “CTA,” and “traffic monetization” may be some of the most commonly used words in the business—but do you really know what they all mean?
Let’s start with a couple of definitions to make sure we speak the same language and refer to the same things.
“Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting other people’s (or company’s) products. You find a product you like, promote it to others and earn a piece of the profit for each sale that you make.” source: Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income
You know that web marketing consists of displaying a product or service to influence web users. Well, affiliate marketing was built on this same principle, with one important twist: it’s based on conversion performance.
In other words, it means that you only get paid when a visitor completes a desired action (i.e., registers on a site, pays for something, etc.) and that’s what is called a conversion. Desired goals may vary, but the most common is to convert a web visitor into a paying customer.
How does it work?
You [the affiliate] send traffic to the advertiser’s product by promoting one (or many) products/offers. The advertiser(s) will, in exchange, pay you a commission for every action executed by your visitors. It is important to note that while the provider(s) pay you for certain actions (i.e., getting paid for every lead sent to a cam site, or having a visitor watch a certain video) he still expects, in return, a qualified lead that will generate sales for his company.
What is a niche?
A niche is a smaller segment of an entire market. You’ll need to find the niche you’re interested in working with because trying to target the whole population and promote a large range of offers will most likely not get you the results you are hoping for.
Here are some tips:
- Find the right audience for your content
- Visit the tag section of websites to spot popular content
- Use catchy, yet relevant titles
- Find and build original and interesting content to share
- Use Google to find popular search elements or keywords
After a while with a niche-based site, you will get targeted organic traffic without having to pay anyone or get into media buying to get visitors to your site.
You can also build an email list using a simple email magnet on your site. You can also put ads and offers on it related to the niche you are targeting.
Day 2 – The affiliate marketing basics
Welcome to the second day of our masterclass.
Here are some really important things to keep in mind during your affiliate marketing journey.
1. Educate yourself
By reading this, you’ve already proven a willingness to learn about affiliate marketing and how to make money online, so that’s something to be proud of. Unfortunately, we still see too many people asking questions that could easily be answered with a 10-second Google search.
Start to follow influencers in your chosen niche. Join communities (forums, social media, etc.) of like-minded affiliates who are willing to share their valuable experience. Read answers that have already been given.
The Internet is a gigantic pool of knowledge… so never hesitate to take a dip!
2. Let’s have some F.U.U.n!
Humor is your ally. There are no secrets here either, and that’s the key to success. What you’ve got to remember is that funny, unusual and unique content will always win out at the end of the day. Just think about our Triviass Survey. Think fun over porn and people will be inclined to share it.
3. Get inspired
If you don’t know how to find the right offers for your traffic, start off by scouring the web in search of the latest trends. Try spotting what lander concept is hot right now, figure out why it’s hot, and figure out the product behind it. You need to find opportunities.
4. Find and define your niche
Think about who you’re looking to reach. Put yourself in that person’s head, and think about what they would be looking for. Now figure out how you are going to bring it up. Be original, we can’t say it enough. There are a lot of competitors out there that want to get a piece of the pie, too. When you browse the net, play the “I SPY” game and observe how many offers and affiliate links you can find in the pages you stumble upon. Know your audience.
Know what they like and how they want it. If you open a store and your shelves are full of products that don’t move, you need to change your inventory. It’s not about following your passion—it’s about delivering what your customers want. We can’t stress this enough!
5. Work hard, plan even harder (and play later if you’re not too tired!)
Affiliate marketing can be a grueling undertaking. That’s why you can’t simply jump on the bandwagon—you need to be prepared. That’s the secret: hard work and planning. Knowing yourself and building your skills set will be of great help. If you’re to make money online, treat it like a marathon; it’s an endurance test and you need to train a lot to stay competitive. You’re an athlete, nothing less. So start acting like one!
6. Cutting edges and using shortcuts
Have you ever clicked on a link and, appears to your eyes, a white page with banners everywhere? Would YOU click these banners? Most likely not, and neither will your traffic! Don’t be fooled into thinking about taking shortcuts, like setting dozens of soulless automated blogs – this will not get you the results you’re looking for and will surely not stay in time. Be smart. Blend in your links and don’t SPAM your banners all over the place. Landing pages are great at building trust & credibility… and just as great at crashing and burning, if the only thing you care about is making a sale.
7. Have the carpet match the drapes
Once you know more about your traffic (device, GEO, age, etc.), this step becomes easier to achieve. However, finding the perfect offer for your content is always a challenge. Even the most successful businesses keep testing new ideas, new products, new advertising strategies, etc.
Know that these simple changes can make the difference between an affiliate link that people care about and one that gets ignored. On that end, A/B Testing is one of the most powerful techniques you can use! Variables like a Call-to-action, a banner color or size, your writing’s font, etc. are all tests to be made in order to optimize your sales funnel.
A lot of affiliates think they can just pick offers with the highest payouts and call it a day…This is a rookie mistake. You must match your offers to your content. By doing so, you’ll become a trusted source of information, and an expert in your niche, instead of an offer pusher.
8. Hold on if you feel like giving up
Making money online is far from being saturated, but it’s super competitive. Most affiliates give up after less than 6 months. Truth is, it can take up to a year before you see any significant results, depending on your strategy.
Day 3 – Setting up your goals
Welcome to Day 3 of this Masterclass!
Let’s talk about your goals
To make sure your goals are clear and reachable, each one should be:
- Specific (it must be simple and significant)
- Measurable (it must be easy to track)
- Achievable (it must be attainable and realistic)
- Relevant (it must be worthwhile and relevant to you)
- Time-bound (it must have a time limit)
Plus, you need to be patient! It will not always work on the first try, or it may take a bit longer before seeing results. When promoting an offer, for example, don’t switch to another offer after only a couple of days just because you don’t have satisfying results yet. Give it some time, try to optimize your funnel, A/B test different landing pages… and so on.
Affiliate marketing is not rocket science, but that doesn’t mean it’s a piece of cake either! It requires work to be put in, but it can lead to high revenues, especially when done right.
Start with a goal that is not too high, but not too low at the same time—maybe something like $200 for your first month. That way, target goals will be a little easier to reach, while motivating you to move forward to the next target on your list.
If you are just starting out, PPL might be extra alluring to you for that quick, fast cash as those conversions roll in. Remember, evaluate your long-term goals and decide which pay model is going to help you succeed in reaching those goals.
Working with a CPA Network has many benefits
Let’s look at a few of them:
- Support for selecting the best offer for your traffic, coaching for your sales funnel and not having to deal with various customers requests.
- We take care of tracking your sales so that you get paid for your work, and offer tips, tricks, tutorials and useful reading material to help you succeed.
- Free and exclusive tools to send your traffic to the best performing offers that we’ve extensively tested to ensure high conversion rates.
- Not to forget that by doing business with a CPA Network, you get one payment for all your offers.
Never hesitate to reach out to your Affiliate Manager. We’re very accommodating, you know.
Day 4 – Traffic sources
Welcome to Day 4 of our Masterclass.
Today, let’s talk about traffic sources and how you can use them to promote offers.
There are multiple sources of traffic that can be monetized through affiliate marketing: first, you’ve got your free sources out there like social media … then you’ve got your paid sources (SEM & Media Buy), and then there’s email marketing and video watermarking right there with you too (just to name a few)!
Build your own website, attract some viewers to it (that’ll be the traffic), and then display some ads on your pages (that’s how you monetize). If you’re a total beginner when it comes to building a website, there’s nothing more perfect for you than a Content Management System.
The long name might make it sound complicated, but it’s not.
Content Management Systems (CMS), such as WordPress, are the ideal choice for people with little or no site-building experience. WordPress is a CMS that will help you build and run an efficient site like a pro. CMSs are all-in-one solutions and are all the rage these days as they help you publish content regularly and allow you to modify that content with ease, without the need for much technical knowledge.
Once your website is built, you’ll still need to attract visitors. Getting traffic to your newfound site is usually the tricky part for most people. There are countless ways to obtain traffic, though.
Some common methods involve:
- SEO – Search Engine Optimization
- Social Media – Get traffic from the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, etc.
- Media Buying – Buying traffic
The Mail Reader
Haven’t you ever registered to a newsletter? What made you want to receive information from a website?
Email marketing, when emails are gathered through newsletters/mail catchers (and not by buying email lists or finding emails on Craigslist) and done the right way—this can be one of the most effective promotional methods out there today!
Your visitors have requested to receive emails from you because they like your website’s content and find it interesting. Almost everything you’ll be sending them will be clicked and has greater potential to turn into a sale—or at least, a lead.
You’ll be able to build a rather extensive mailing list just by featuring a simple magnet on your site… an email magnet! (And yes, you can also display ads and offers there as well.)
Learn how to build a mailing list, how to write efficient emails, and doing it all with a dependable HTML-friendly template will surely be profitable for you, in the long run.
Don’t forget a kickass call-to-action, either!
Remember, gathering emails through classified ads is not a good email traffic source.
These people don’t want your promotional emails. They think you are a real person who wants to date or meet. Fooling them and getting them to convert your offers is not acceptable and results in very poor traffic, traffic not accepted by most providers and makes you susceptible to getting cut from offers — or the entire platform.
Watermarking your content leads to what we call “type-in traffic.”
This can be an effective long-term traffic-building method. Once you have unique original awesome content, watermark it! It does not only link you as the content owner/creator, but it also creates brand awareness!
Make sure your domain fits your content for a smoother sales funnel
Remember! Stealing content from others is a NO NO! Be a good player! Find non-copyrighted content or buy exclusive content! You wouldn’t want others to steal your ideas and content, so why do that to others?
Social “Shoutouts” (also known as paid or sponsored posts)
The goal of a “Shoutout” is to increase visibility to one’s site or brand using established social accounts that already have an important following and fanbase.
You pay the owner of a popular social account to get your brand mentioned on their page or story during the agreed time frame (it can last anywhere from a few hours—to a few weeks) and you just sit back and watch the social traffic come in!
This is definitely an easy way to get qualified traffic and can be less expensive than buying traffic on prime spots!!
You can create and invest in your own Social traffic base by selling and exchanging Shoutouts of your own with like-minded interested site owners.
Do you know an influencer in your niche?
Hit them up, get their rates, and watch your traffic climb!
The Organic Visitor
Visitors typically stumble upon your website this way with the help of a search engine or by simply typing in your domain.
You can use your words to promote a product or site—and have it come across as natural, conversational commentary.
Remember the equation of success:
1 ADULT DOMAIN + 1 CONTENT & KEYWORD-rich SITE…
= QUALITY TRAFFIC & CONVERSIONS!
The Social Butterfly
Social traffic has been known to be one of the hardest types of traffic to convert, but once you’ve found the right formula, social media can be a treasure trove full of hits.
Develop a social presence (jokes, facts, or images), follow the latest trends, and engage with communities to get some interaction.
When the time comes for your promotional post, find a way to mix in humor or appealing imagery so your post can moonlight as both promotional while remaining consistent to the same level of quality as your other, non-promotional posts.
Something your followers can still enjoy.
Buy Ad Spots – Media Buying
Buy ad spots on other websites that already have existing traffic relevant to your interests. With Media Buying, the burden of finding traffic is not on you.
Among some of the best adult ad networks out there, there’s TrafficHaus, TrafficJunky, Traffic Force, TrafficFactory, JuicyAds, AdXpansion, ExoClick, PlugRush, EroAdvertising, Star-Advertising, AvaTraffic and Plugz
However, it’s important to note that successful Media Buyers are not born overnight. To reach a level of Media Buying “greatness”, you really need to know what you’re doing, be good at crunching numbers, be good with campaigns, and most importantly know that it can take months or even years of practice, experience and ultimately trial and error before you see profitable campaigns.
So, if you’re a true beginner in every sense of the word, we strongly suggest beginning by creating your own website first—rather than attempting more advanced methods of traffic generation right now. These other methods we just touched on will come later.
We’re not trying to discourage you or anything, we’re just laying out the facts. Media buying is a different beast, but it’s also a long-term effort where you can easily lose it all if you’re not careful.
Now, what will be your traffic source(s)?
Day 5 – Payout types and compliance
Welcome to Day 5 of our Masterclass.
Like we said yesterday, online Affiliate Marketing is a type of performance-based marketing. It consists of displaying a product or service to influence web users.
In other words, it means that you only get paid when a visitor completes a desired action (i.e.: registers on a website or buys something).
That is what’s called a conversion.
According to MarketingSherpa handbooks, a conversion is: “The point at which a recipient of a marketing message performs a desired action.”The message can be an ad or an email.
Getting someone to open an email is a conversion. Having them click on the call-to-action link inside that email is another conversion. Going to the landing page and filling out a registration form is a conversion. And, of course, buying a product is the ultimate conversion.
Desired goals may vary, but the most common is to convert a web visitor into a paying customer.
The entity, or company, paying the affiliate for each conversion is the provider of an offer. It’s a company that has something to sell and needs someone to promote it. The commission for the conversion may be paid per click, per action (Lead), per sale, or even on Revshare basis—which is a shared percentage of revenues earned.
At CrakRevenue, these are the most popular payout types for the offers available.
PPL or Pay Per Lead
You get paid anytime a user registers for free, fills out a form, or submits their e-mail. There are 2 types of PPL offers:
- SOI: Single opt-in
(the user simply submits his email address without confirming)
- DOI: Double opt-in
(the user submits his email address and confirms within the mail he got)
PPS, or Pay Per Sale
You are paid when the user enters their credit card information. It can sometimes be a trial or sale. The credit card can be billed right away, or used for age verification purposes.
You receive a promised percentage of the commissions paid by your traffic, from the advertiser.
It’s important to remember that although PPL offers pay you for leads, providers also expect sales from your visitors. The more your traffic is qualified, the more you’ll get access to exclusive offers, reserved for affiliates with high-quality traffic.
With high-quality traffic comes high payouts.
The boring, yet still very important Terms of Service
In other words, it’s the accepted and forbidden methods of promotion and sources of traffic.
An affiliate network will always have its own restrictions in regards to the promotion methods, but the advertisers (who provide the offers) also have their own.
Make sure to always be aware of any restrictions on any given offer before sending traffic, or else you just might end up in hot water!
You wouldn’t want to lose your hard earned money simply because you forgot—or ignored—the provider’s accepted promotion methods, would you?
Are your ads compliant?
The Google Chrome ad blocker update went live on February 15, 2018.
The new set of rules are meant to deliver a better user experience—something that has taken a backseat for too long.
It’s a wake-up call for online marketers. Instead of chasing precious clicks at any cost, Google invites affiliates and marketers to take a good hard look at their campaigns. Gone are the days of widespread misleading content and abusive experiences—at least with Chrome’s newest build.
For your ads to still appear in the world’s most-used browser with the greatest market share, understanding what Google Compliant Ads are is a priority.
Don’t panic, we’re makin’ it simple for you.
Here are a couple of DOs and DON’Ts:
- Prioritize a great user experience
- Keep it simple
- Present readable text
- Have a clear CTA
- Match your creative to the product you’re advertising
- Simulate false behavior (ex: tap to play—but it’s not a game)
- Add fake controls/buttons (ex: a menu that doesn’t actually work)
- Create fake profiles
- Have blinking/flashing elements
Check out this guide to learn more about compliant ads (and also the video underneath).
Welcome to Day 6 of our Masterclass.
Trust us, A/B testing is the way to go
A/B Testing is like if you were in charge of a lab where new ideas are born and constantly tweaked. With A/B Testing, you might be comparing two versions of anything: landing pages, banners, CTA, titles – and well, you get the point.
Both versions of your content will be randomly shown to visitors. And with the help of statistical data, you’ll be able to identify which one has better performance.
You can basically A/B test anything.
Tracking is everything
General stats tracking consists of tracking your sales by Date, Program, GEO, Tour, Category, and so on—that much is obvious.
But, having a bird’s eye view of your traffic that converts, and how it converts? That much is up to you.
To find that treasure, you need to use trackers to differentiate your traffic sources. Just answer this one simple question:
“Where is your top converting traffic coming from?”
If you don’t know the answer, it’s time to start tracking it.
It all comes down to this one simple idea: trackers are tools designed to generate relevant stats specific to your traffic and your promotion methods.
OK. But where do I start?
Trackers are data, and data is information. But, as we already pointed out, it needs to be relevant to your traffic.
One of the easiest ways is by using Sub IDs in your tracking links. This is unique information that you’re going to use to identify specific tracking links, or campaigns. In the example below, we added two Sub IDs: Facebook and Banner#2.
This will identify the conversions coming from Facebook (traffic source) using the banner #2 (creative or image used).
Do you own a website?
If you do, consider getting Google Analytics set up on your site immediately to begin gathering the maximum amount of data when it comes to your traffic. You can also use UTM trackers to know exactly where your visitors are coming from, and from which campaigns.
EPC (Earnings per Click) tells us the average amount of revenue by click.
For example, if 1000 people clicked on your link, and you generated $150 in total with that offer, that means you earned $0.15 per click.
Typically, a better EPC is indicative of a more efficient, successful campaign—but that’s not always the case. A higher EPC doesn’t necessarily translate to more money in your pockets.
To put it simply, would you prefer to sell two $100,000 cars once a year, or twenty cars valued at $16,000 a year?
To put it into simple words, postbacks transmit information about your conversions. At CrakRevenue, we record all the information from a user click, including affiliates’ subIDs, the payout amount for a specific offer, geo, device, banner clicked, and more. Once a conversion occurred, it’s possible to add any or all of this information to the affiliate’s platform with a postback. Global Postbacks will notify you of conversions across ALL offers.
To achieve so, the software appends different values to the tracking URL that are returned in the postback URL. For instance, if you wish to track your traffic’s device of choice, it could look something like this:
Don’t hesitate to contact your AM or Support team in order to set up a Global Postback in your account!
Day 7 – Crak’s tools and Extra Earnings
Today is the first day of the rest of your life. —Charles Dederich
Ahem. Sorry for that cheesy quote. Now that we’ve apologized, let’s get on with our last Masterclass, shall we?!
Using tools to promote wisely
Indeed, there are a lot of ways to promote an offer—and one of them is using tools.
And guess what? At CrakRevenue, we’ve got you covered with the very best of them.
Smartlinks send your traffic to CrakRevenue’s top-converting offers based on user device, user location and your chosen vertical. CR Smartlinks help you get more conversions by generating links to only creatives & landers that have proven to have the highest CTR head and shoulders above the rest!
Let’s say someone from the United States clicks on your tracking link (which happens to be a smartlink) from a mobile device…
This person would then be sent to our best converting mobile offer for US traffic – automatically.
So, you send your traffic to one unique link, and we take care of the rest! Our Smartlinks were designed to make your life easier!
Native advertising is the use of paid ads that match the look, feel and function of the media format in which they appear. Here are some examples of native ads that you probably see pretty often:
- Ads that appear in your news feed on social networks (ie. your Facebook or Instagram feed
- Ads that appear at the top of your Google search results, or in the sidebar
- Recommended articles that appear below the article you just read on a blog or news website
With our Native Ads Generator, your ads will conform to the look and feel of your site, blog or tube. This exciting new tool will also help you create a more natural sales funnel that’s sure to drive those conversions up.
Because they look like another piece of content — an extension of your site — these “ads” sometimes resemble a site without any advertisements (to inexperienced surfers, anyway).
Most importantly, Native Ads when done right neither distract nor disrupt the user experience, encouraging a greater number of users to click.
You may be asking yourself: What’s a Survey Machine? Well, the answer is very simple. It’s our way of creating custom surveys that engage your traffic and increase your revenue by having something tailored (and totally custom) to your needs.
All of our Surveys are highly interactive. The related offers can be personalized so they feel less like an ad and more like an extension of your website.
Survey related offers create the ultimate funnel and can help you achieve more conversions than you ever thought possible.
You can customize the set of questions, design, logo, and even the rewards.
So, we named this bad boy generator the Survey Machine (and guess what? It’s new and improved!) and it’s available for free at CrakRevenue!
Extra earnings, anyone?
When we speak of the “Triple E” method at CrakRevenue, we’re not referring to bra size here. As much as we’re sure you’d all like to think we’re talking about brassiere measurements—the “E-E-E” method we mention actually stands for Extra Earnings Enabled. It’s just something every affiliate should keep in mind, because every serious marketer knows how hard it can be to get the maximum out of his or her traffic and campaigns.
You should NEVER say no to extra earnings.
Pop-unders can be the perfect supplemental income source to a site’s existing monetization strategy. Pops allow the promotion of another campaign or offer without overloading a website with ads—especially if they manage to be subtle in nature, not overly aggressive, and make the visitor believe that the pop-under is merely an extension of the website that they’re on.
The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) published some guidelines that they believe all webmasters, affiliates, publishers and Advertisers should follow in their advertising and pop-under pursuits. At CrakRevenue, all guidelines & criteria are respected instantly when you select the appropriate “Extra Earnings” checkbox in CrakRevenue’s offer pages!
Back offers are complementary offers displayed when users click to access the previous page. What this means is, for the offers you promote, additional geo-relevant top offers will be presented to your visitors if they leave your page using the back button.
Not only do they convert and add to your conversions—but they are a great last-ditch effort to save that sale before your visitor exits.
At CrakRevenue, all back offers shown are always relevant to the offer that was initially “of interest” to the user and surfer at hand. Enabling back offers can increase your earnings by 25% on average, without any additional effort on your part. So, sit back, relax, and fear that “Back” button no more!
You can turn on the Extra earnings easily below each of your tracking link in your account.
