Always track your ad efforts

Tracking your affiliate links is very important if you want to optimize your marketing strategy and increase your revenue. By tracking your affiliate links, you can:

  • Measure the performance of your affiliate links, such as the number of clicks, conversions, and sales they generate.
  • Identify the best sources of traffic and the most effective channels, platforms, and campaigns for your affiliate links.
  • Test and compare different affiliate offers, products, or services and see which ones have the highest conversion rates and commissions.
  • Analyze the behavior and preferences of your audience and tailor your content and promotions accordingly.
  • Detect and fix any issues with your affiliate links, such as broken links, out-of-stock products, or expired offers.

There are different methods and tools that you can use to track your affiliate links, such as adding tracking parameters to your URLs, using URL shorteners, creating custom landing pages, or using dedicated affiliate tracking platforms. You can also use Google Analytics to track your affiliate links and see how they perform on your website or blog

What’s the difference between Splash Page and Landing Page?

Okay, so where to start? What exactly is SecondSplash.com?

SecondSplash.com is a splash page builder that makes it easy for even the most technically challenged to create a compelling splash page. (more on this later).

For now, let’s first address what exactly a splash page is

A splash page is a company’s introduction to their website. It’s not a landing page, but rather a large window that is used to promote a service or product, announce a promotion, or deliver necessary information, before a user is able to enter the site and view the rest of the site’s pages. A typical splash page will usually be displayed in its entirety above the fold; that is, the area in a visitor’s browser that is viewable without having to scroll down.

SecondSplash.com uses a simple 3 step system to help members create splash (and capture – more on this later) pages.
1. Members choose a background image from over 60 categories, all hosted by SecondSplash.com on their content delivery network. Pro members have the ability to upload their own background images to the network or import it from a web address (URL)
2. Edit a text placeholder with a message you want your splash page to convey, move it to where you want it displayed on the background image and specify the color you want it in.
3. Give your splash page a short descriptive name, and where visitors must go when they click on it and publish.

Once published, the member receives a splash page link that they can enter into traffic exchanges and anywhere else they want to promote it. Once such a splash page link is viewed, we get to see where the name Second Splash comes in…

This is rather imaginative. Rather than just displaying the splash page you created, 2 splash pages are displayed next to each other, or under each other when viewed on a smaller device such as a mobile phone. The splash page belonging to the link owner will be displayed on the right hand side (top on smaller screens) and another splash page will be displayed on the left (bottom on smaller screens). The splash page on the left/bottom will be a random splash page that belongs to the person who referred the owner of the splash page link. However, only 50% of the time will the left/top splash page belong to the sponsor. The other 50% of time when a splash page link is followed, the left/top splash page will be long to a random pro member. (more on pro features later)

Readers who are sharp will quickly notice this is a fresh way of getting a lot of traffic without effort by either referring a lot of members to their downline or subscribing to the pro membership.

Talking about referrals, every time a splash page is viewed, the affiliate link of both the right side splash owner as well as the affiliate link of the left side splash owner is also embedded into the page, making this a very interesting concept to study as far as passive marketing is concerned. Not only is your affiliate link promoted when you promote your splash page links, but also when members in your downline promote theirs. This sets a snowball effect in motion whereby the people you refer will promote your splash pages and affiliate link, which will lead to more people signing up under you, which leads to more of your splash pages and affiliate link being shown and around and around it goes. Just this feature alone should make it an easy choice for newbiews as I can’t think of an easier way to get new signups into a program.

PRO FEATURES AND COMMISSIONS

At the time of their launch, a pro membership will cost you $24 a month, or you can get 2 months free with an annual membership for $240. There is also a lifetime option available. As a free member you will earn 25% commission for every subscriber and as a pro member that goes up to 50%, so as a pro member, you need 2 subscribers to effectively get your own pro subscription free.

With the viral way this system is set up to auto-promote your affiliate link, getting two pro referrals to essentially make your own pro membership free, should be a cinch. Here, it should be noted, they have a fast action bonus, only available for 3 days after you join that really adds a lot to your membership. A big selling point for the fast action bonus is the ability to also use SecondSplash.com to create capture pages.

If you miss out on the fast action bonus, you can get it later as an add-on at a much higher price, however, even with the higher priced add-on you will not get everything available through the fast action bonus, so be aware of that if it is the route you want to go.

 

WHAT YOU GET AS A PRO MEMBER:

– Create up to 20 (30 with fast action bonus) simultaneous campaigns (Free members are restricted to 3 campaigns)
– Pause campaigns
– See click through rates on your campaigns. Click rates are recorded for free members as well, but only become available once they reach pro status.
– See where your clicks are coming from
– See where your referrals are coming from
– Get detailed analytics, charts and reports
– Customize your splash designs with 8 fonts (12 if you grab the fast action bonus)
– Customize your splash designs with 2 text placeholders (Free members get one)
– Customize your splash designs with text outlining
– Get double the commission free members get
– Have your campaigns (and affiliate link) promoted by the entire membership.
– Message your downline any time without having to earn credits
– Get access to analytical insights without having to earn credits

With regards to this last pro benefit, they have a section on your back-office where you can see the top five splash pages getting the most clicks. This is the top 5 among the entire membership, not just your own account. This is an especially nice feature as it allows you to inspect the winning campaigns to model your own campaigns after it. This feature is available to free members as well, but in order to get access they must first earn 15 credits by viewing 15 splash pages belonging to pro members.

SUMMARY

SecondSplash.com is a novel idea that will appeal to new and seasoned marketers alike. The top 5 campaigns feature is stroke of genius, creating equal opportunity for free and promembers alike to create winning campaigns and the referral system will set a new standard for viral marketing and passive income.

PROS

Referral System
Top 5 Analytics

CONS
Free members are limited to 3 campaigns.

FINAL VERDICT
I think it is clear from this review, I could not really fault the system. While seasoned marketers will knock this out of the ballpark, newbies will find it hard to find an easier system to refer other members, so it is a win for all. Two Thumbs Up…Go grab it.

 

Make it a GREAT day.

What is Herculist? Review

Herculist

How to get affordable traffic to your offers

Herculist Plus is one of the best places to advertise your business. It was founded in 1998 and has since been a popular site for email marketers and online business owners, and in this review I will share all the information about it with you so you can start benefiting from it.

What is Herculist?

Herculist is an email safe list where people can sign up to receive information. This means that if you use the list to send an email ad, it won’t be labelled as spam because it is requested by the recipient. In return, your emails will be received by them too. The newer version of Herculist, called Herculist Plus, has taken the original version and improved it with many features that will get members more targeted traffic to their offers and sales.

There are three membership options available to choose from on Herculist Plus: free, pro, and gold. Pro and Gold memberships are payable either on a monthly or yearly basis, and there is also a lifetime gold membership option available inside the members area.

How Does Herculist Plus Work?

Users have several different options they can use to advertise their offer on Herculist Plus. Ad mailers allow you to send your ad daily to 1,000 random members if you have a free account, pro members can send to the entire database of over 320,000 people every other day, and gold members can email every day. Prime Ads provide exposure to your offer in the best areas of the Herculist Plus website. The Zone allows for instant traffic to your offer if you choose to surf for credits. HercuBlurb and MonsterBlurb are both large web-based ads that can be created and submitted for massive amounts of traffic. Login Ads can be seen by members when they log into their account, and there are also solo ad packages offered where you can send your email ad to more than 22,000 people who are looking for offers or services. Finally, there is a affiliates program that will let you earn 50% recurring commission on Pro and Gold upgrade, and 50% commission on all solo ad packages purchased through your affiliate link.

My Experience With Herculist Plus

I opted for the lifetime gold membership which cost $49 and now I can send an email every day to the entire database forever. My offer has received opt-ins and increased my sales. I like that I can watch a video tutorial in the members area which is 30 minutes long and shows how to use and get the most out of the advertising tools available. I also get a $5 bonus just for signing up which is great.

The one thing I don’t like is that I receive a lot of emails from other members – however, this is what these kind of systems do, so I can accept it. All in all I don’t have any negative things to say about Herculist Plus.

Final Verdict

If you’re looking for an affordable way to market online, then you should consider joining Herculist Plus. As a free member, you can send your daily email to 1,000 people, while a paid member can contact over 351,000+ people. If you promote an opt-in page, you’ll get new signups and sales down the road as long as you remain consistent. The “Traffic Bomb” is a great way to get automated traffic at an affordable price.

You have nothing to lose by signing up to Herculist Plus with a free account, and you can easily watch the video tutorial to find out more. Using the system correctly can really help you build your email list, and it’s a great tool to get results.
