How to Participate
Participating in this contest is easy. Simply follow these steps:

- Reply to this thread with a link to your follow along thread.
- Post at least 4 updates in your thread (please number them) about how your campaign is running (be as detailed as possible).
IMPORTANT: Adcash and I recommend testing their pop and interstitial traffic. You can test in-page push and it will count towards the contest, but you will have the best results with pop/interstitial
That’s it! You can run multiple campaigns and create multiple follow along threads if you like.
And, with the $2022 Participation Award
, you are guaranteed to get some of your money back!

The team at Adcash and I have been discussing all the things we can do to try to make sure your campaigns with Adcash are as profitable as possible. Here are some recommendations we've come up with:
- BONUS: Use the exclusive affLIFT promo code: AFFLIFT22 to get a 25% top-up on your deposit. This is for new and existing advertisers!
- Ad formats: Focus on Pop-Under & Interstitial ads.
- Campaign creation type: If you’re an experienced affiliate, we’d go with an Advanced campaign, as it offers more control over every aspect of your campaign. For example, it has more targeting features, a powerful ROAS monitoring & campaign optimization tool, quality tier bidding for CPM (3 bids instead of 1) and you can select multiple ad formats in one campaign.
- SSP targeting: If you’re new to Adcash, target Adcash as the only SSP to narrow down your campaign’s testing period only to our network of direct publishers. Once you feel confident, you can target all other SSPs through the same campaign, or create a separate one to target all other SSPs but Adcash.
- Targeting options: In addition to device/OS/browser types of targeting options, don’t underestimate the power of user interest & website category targeting. For example, if you’re looking to promote any kind of Sport-related product or service we recommend targeting only the Sport "User Interest" or the Sports Website Category" (we even recommend A/B testing these two).
- Payout Type: If you can integrate our S2S postback (goal/conversion tracking), we recommend A/B testing our CPA Target bidding feature against CPM.
- Verticals: In the last 30 days, these are the most successful verticals on Adcash (in no particular order): VPNs, antiviruses or any other mobile app utilities, sports betting, crypto or other "Make money" type of products, VOD, sweeps, dating (including adult), casino, gaming, browser extensions, eCommerce.
Of course, I am here to help and the Adcash team is also available! They'll be watching all the follow alongs and answering any questions. You can also PM them: @Adcash
