Your mission STM Comrades, should you choose to accept it, involves a challenge that some might call impossible and that only the most determined and relentless affiliates among us will survive. But we know, that within the information warehouse of STM there contains a nuclear arsenal of ideas, strategies and advice that will change the future of any affiliate that takes action to reach their goals.
Starting from ground zero, infiltrate any country that stands in your way and crush any offer than shows signs of life, to build a profitable mobile pop campaign to $xxx/day or more within 30 days.
The Case Study
I will be your Major during this mission and will be conducting a live case study that may include both written and/or video updates along the way. The exact offer(s), countries or traffic sources that I use will not be disclosed until this challenge has completed to protect the integrity of the case study. However, you will be aware of the verticals I test, my day-to-day actions, methods, data and decision making along the way.
The goal of this case study is to help you with an over-the-shoulder look into building a profitable campaign and to empower you to take action.
These are the rules and guidelines by which I will approach this case study.
– Traffic Type: Mobile Pop
– Traffic Sources: Any mobile pop source.
– Affiliate Networks: Any affiliate networks.
– Vertical / Offer Types: Any vertical but my strengths are in apps, mobile content and antivirus so I will begin there.
– # of Campaigns: As many as it takes while staying within budget.
– Methods: All methods allowed excluding iframing/clickjacking/other malicious methods.
– Other: I will not be using any prior data that I have collected. No currently running campaigns or tests are allowed.
– Timeline: 30 day challenge starts on April 1st and ends on April 30th, 2017 @ 11:59pm CST
– Budget: $1000 max ad spend to reach goal.
– Place: This will be held within the STM forum and an active membership is required.
