OUT NOW: A Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing

Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing


In case you thought this blog had died and gone to Heaven Hell…


I’ve been scribbling away in the darkness and I’m relieved/delighted to finally announce:

A Complete Guide to Affiliate Marketing

The book has just dropped in my store: click here to order now.

First question, how is it different from the Premium Post series?

This is a cohesive start-to-finish, step-by-step guide to affiliate marketing.

It is a 419 page beast that tackles the complex issue of how I would teach somebody to make money from our industry.

There was an amazing response to Premium Posts Volume 2015, but the biggest criticism it faced was that people wanted more structure.

They wanted less nuggets, and more actionable advice.

I’ve had numerous requests for coaching, mentoring and private consulting along these lines, all of which I have refused.

I’m not interested in coaching.

What I can offer instead is this guide: a one-size-fits-all breakdown of the skill sets, philosophies, and challenges you will face if you wish to become a successful affiliate. And how I deal with them personally.

The guide is roughly split in two.

The first half gets newbies and rank beginners up to speed.

The second half ventures in to advanced marketing philosophies that should prove useful, and lucrative, for any affiliate.

I have included some of my own campaigns as examples.

You will see the logic behind their conception, the launch process, the optimisation process, reaching profit, and how I go about scaling.

Update: Unsolicited Feedback Since The Release:

No affiliate trust testimonials, right?

Here’s some unsolicited feedback I’ve collected since the launch of the guide.


What’s in the guide?

74,314 words, 419 pages, and a lot of swearing.

The 2015 Edition of Premium Posts is an absolute monster, and it is available to download… right now.

Inside you will find a mountain of fresh insights to give your affiliate business the head start it needs in 2015.

375 pages, 65,000 words of tips, tricks, strategies, pointers, bloopers, fuck-ups, brainfarts, bad ideas, good ideas and obscure references to my balls.

This is THE definitive guide to affiliate marketing for 2015.

(I don’t know if anybody else has actually tried to write one, but if they have, it’s about to get blown to smithereens.)

Topics we’ll be covering include:

* How to survive, thrive and kick ass in affiliate marketing throughout 2015.

* Everything you need to know about mobile marketing, and how to make money from it.

* The explosion in pay-per-call offers: how to promote them, and where.

* The adult dating sector as it stands today: the best opportunities and the biggest money.

* The longest post I have ever written on getting profitable with casual dating, clocking in at 97 pages.

* How to test and optimise your campaigns effectively — the ‘Super Affiliate’ way.

* How a strategy of continual 1% improvements can take your business to the next level.

* That bloody Teespring craze, and how you can make a part-time (even full-time) living as a T-Shirt mogul.

* The art of retargeting, and how it could make a bunch of innovative affiliates very rich in 2015.

* Why you should quit ‘affiliate marketing’ and build a majestic performance marketing agency.

* A giant (extended) list of my favourite affiliate resources and tools, with an exclusive selection of dynamite traffic sources.

* And much more.

Note: The price has gone up. Why? Because the standard of content has gone up. Way up.

This release is three times bigger than any other volume in the series. It covers our entire industry. If I taught this information by the hour, you’d be paying for a lot of classes!

Sponsored by Adsimilis


‘Premium Posts: 2015 Edition’ is sponsored (once again) by Adsimilis, one of the world’s leading CPA networks, and general good chaps and chapettes.

I started working with Adsimilis in 2010.

Sean, Eleah and Mike do a fantastic job of matching the top affiliates to the best offers, all around the world. The entire affiliate management team, including my own AM Naomi, is first class.

If you are looking for a reliable team to help grow your affiliate business to the next level, then sign up for an account with them today.

I’m flattered that they continue to put their name against the breeze that flaps out of my gums. So thank you, Adsimilis!

16 Months Later… Thanks for Staying Patient!

It’s 16 months since I last released a volume of Premium Posts.

I had a new volume wrapped up and ready to launch in the summer.

After several re-reads, I wasn’t happy with the content.

It felt rushed. Repetitive.

So I shit-canned it.

I decided not to release any further volumes and I focused on my campaigns.

Then I started networking with affiliates in person.

In Barcelona, Dubai, London…

It took me by surprise just how many people had benefited, in some obscure way or another, from previous entries in the series.

That sparked me in to writing one post, which became the cornerstone of this brand new volume.

The rest of the content flooded out soon after, in gushes of pent-up energy and compressed brainfart.

What I’m releasing today is the culmination of a lot of ransacked coffee beans, and many, many late nights.

Thankfully, this time, after several more re-reads, I’m more than satisfied with the content.

It’s the most comprehensive dissection of affiliate marketing I’ve ever attempted.

It’s probably the most comprehensive dissection of affiliate marketing anybody has ever attempted.

I can’t wait for you to read it.

Introducing Premium Posts Volume X

It’s now 8 months since I released The Empire Strategy, a blueprint that was supposed to be the final volume in my Premium Posts series.

Well, surprise surprise.

It wasn’t.

Say hello to my latest ginormous affiliate marketing brainfart, Volume X.

Volume X Available Now

If you hadn’t guessed by the cover, we’re going to be tackling an industry that is fiercely popular with affiliates in 2013:

The casual dating vertical.

In four years of running this blog, I’ve never once posted about the adult industry. To do so would cause headaches for a number of reasons…

1. Some of the content in Volume X is… highly inflammatory. It would take a) great bravery or b) great stupidity, for a blogger like myself (so noble) to post such sensitive – and potentially offensive – guides to making money from casual dating. I’d need a new pen name.

2. The content is potentially very lucrative. You need only attend an affiliate meetup to grasp just how many of us are operating in the adult niche (about 90% of the affiliates I spoke to in Amsterdam!)

Why? Adult is an affiliate marketer’s paradise; one of the few that remains profitable in our ransacked playground. High volume campaigns with the potential of bedwetting ROI are at your sweet mercy.

3. I’ve had to showcase a lot of titties. Yes, it’s true. As I’ve grown older and unwiser, I’ve started to think twice, thrice and many times over about the type of content published under my name. I don’t want this blog to descend in to me talking shop on the workings of PornHub, but I also know exactly who I’m talking to (a combination of affiliates, friends and family, which makes this quite awkward).

If you’re an affiliate, let’s face it, you’re probably working on a casual dating campaign. Filthy little reprobate. I can smell it on you.

The solution?

Volume X.

Over the course of 143 ball-stacked pages, it’s just me and you. We’ll blow a lid off the adult dating industry, we’ll look at how you can make money from it, and we’ll dabble in some seriously effective tips that can push your campaigns in to hot-doggy-on-sauce-profit-$$$.

I can’t talk about this shit in public, and you can’t read about it in public.

That’s not to say we’re only going to look at adult dating.

If Volume 7’s Empire Strategy was a blueprint for building a stable long-term online business, Volume X is a back-to-basics interrogation of CPA in all its defiant glory.

You can use this information to make an absolute fortune, or you can use it to fail miserably and stumble further in to debt.

That’s the catch with CPA.

It’s full of risk, but it’s rich with reward.

What’s Included in Volume X?

Inside, you will find:

  • Introduction: X-Rated Profits
  • Launching a Successful Campaign: Where to Start
  • How to Master Direct Buys for Mega Low CPCs
  • Hugely Profitable Adult Niches and How to Work Them
  • How to Improve Lead Quality and Profit for the Long Haul
  • August 2013 in the Affiliasphere
  • Rules Psychology: How to Make it Pay in Every Niche
  • Adult Campaign Tracking, Optimization and Common Mistakes
  • Disgustingly Effective Tips For High CTR Banners
  • Kindle And Dating Ads? Tapping Amazon’s Insane Leadgen Potential
  • In Closing: Wash Hands With Soap

That’s 143 pages and 24323 words in PDF format. Available as an instant download for $34.95.

Full details and ordering information are available here.

Warning: These posts are not for beginners. You should have at least some basic understanding of running affiliate campaigns. I’m not going to waste my time explaining the basics.

Volume X is sponsored by Adsimilis


If you are an affiliate looking to make money from the dating and adult verticals, you would be committing the hairiest of cardinal sins by not signing up with Adsims.

They are dating specialists in the CPA space. Ton of exclusives, industry-leading conversion rates and massive international coverage.

I’ve been recommending Adsimilis for the last 3 years now, so this should hardly come as a surprise. I’m very happy to have them onboard as Volume X’s sponsor. Much of the content discussed in this volume can make you a megabuck with the vast collection of offers that Adsims bring to the table.

Register an account today or forever hold your peace.

Note: Once you’re registered, be sure to check out their 2013 Meetup. It’s going to be held in Ibiza, the Mecca of Par-tay. I’ve never been so I’m looking forward to it. Will see you all for a fancy pink cocktail massive beer in September.

* * *

Okay, finally…

Now that I’m done scribbling away in the darkness with only my balls for company, you can expect a new post sometime next week.

We’ll be talking about kittens, Greenpeace, and why porn is bad for the soul.

Stay classless, affiliate marketing.
