Follow Along iMonetizeit vs Lospollos vs Adverten vs Clickdealer vs ProfitSocial - 1st Dating Smartlink Battle in the World

Almost everybody, who works with push traffic, has probably launched dating at one time.

According to most managers’ opinion, push traffic composed considerable part of dating smartlink networks, when they have just appeared.
But later something went wrong…

And we had a light bulb moment – why don’t we test them again in 2020?

And idea came to mind:
What happens if I add a few smartlinks to 1 campaign?

Super Smartlink Network? Smartlinked Smartlink? Smartlink with top payouts in all GEO?
Or maybe it's all a totally idiotic idea? 🤣

I don't know what to call it.

But I really wanted to see HOW it would work.

Lospollos vs iMonetizeit vs Adverten vs Clickdealer

Have you ever seen such battle?

Top dating smartlinks fight for highest EPV on Clickstar.
I launched traffic, and mildly speaking, we haven’t expected such results.

🎯 Traffic Source: Clickstar
🌍 Geo: Europe
🔧 Tracking Tool: Voluum (+Enabled AI)
📅 Type of offers: Dating Smartlinks from iMonetizeit, Lospollos, Adverten, Clickdealer
💰 Payouts: i dont know :LOL:

My First idea:
Register in all top dating smartlink networks
Add all smartlinks in 1 campaign
Enable Traffic distribution AI in paths
Use Spypush for make incredible promo in all GEOs
Find top EPV in every geo
PROFIT ???

but after tests, I read this topic (This is best I read in 2020 and was looking for the same thing this guy was looking for)
about REAL AI optimization with @Kintura (later need test this tracker)

My Actions
Ok, i spy promo and make 9 ads in campaign
My first EU geo is DE ( Why DE? stable TOP geo with big payouts)
Check average bids & ctr in this geo
But didn't put highest cpc ( start with 0.02$ creep up to 0.025$ )
After approval add 250$ on balance ( why not 50$? network is balance dependent)

And there are some results for yesterday:
screenshot_15-png.7950

(ps sorry for screen, i dont know why image quality is poor)

And that works, i dont know how, but i have small but green profit.
Now I want to add a few more smartlinks and test even more.
I know there's still some of top players on market.
I try register in ProfitSocial but they rejected my application!
With reason - You registered in TopOffers
( I thought they were joking with me, but if you're registered in one of these networks, you can't get an account in other)

My question to afflift community
Do you know any dating smartlink networks WITHOUT a huge registration form and a picture of my cat with 12 hour skype interviews ( i dont know where my 09-17:00 jacket :LOL: ) with manager?
With fast payouts ( NET-14 its maximum, preferably NET-7)

I have account in Advidi but all smartlinks offers which I found, same as i have ( I think they just took smarts from networks that I tested)

My ideas for new tests:
Test Kintura
Test other EU countries
Add more smartlinks to flow
Test smartlinks without prelanders + My own prelanders
Test with unique/non-unique rotation
+++ I'm VERY interested in what happens tomorrow, is there any excessive optimization? and no one can answer that question, we're making new history :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

Hmm interdasting! Will be following. Good luck brotha 😁

Also



Lmao
Ahahah, thank you

About payouts, really, smartlink pay % which he received from direct dating advertiser / dating cpa network

Still, it's a test and I don't think it's a good idea to work like this because everyone wants to earn their own percentage and $.$$$.$$$.
smartlink is 3rd party network

and our path is: (sometimes companies in the chain can be more / less)

1. directdatingnetworkhere.com with direct offer
2. maybecpanetworkhere.com with this offer
3. smartlinknetworkhere.com with rotation and prelanders
4. Smartlink affiliate here and it's great if I get at least 50% of the first point
(And then we wonder why most offers can't be run and they have -50% ROI 😲)

I highly recommend you do the Kintura test.

As this is indeed very similar to my own test (thanks for the compliment), I can say for sure (based on my tests & experiences) with Kintura that you'll see an overall higher CVR & ROI.

Also other networks recommendations (based on your criteria):
C3PA
Affmy
ByOffers
GeoEarnings
RevolutionForce

Super Smartlink Network? Smartlinked Smartlink? Smartlink with top payouts in all GEO?
We kind of did this with PeerFly. We called it Smartest Link 😆

I try register in ProfitSocial but they rejected my application!

That's odd. I am sure @TopOffers ProfitSocial can resolve this 👍

Looking forward to seeing how this looks. Very interesting! Appreciate the awesome follow along 🚀

Hahah SUPER PRIVATE EXCLUSIVE SMARTLINK OFFER,
logically, we should get the highest EPV every step of way.

Noo, @TopOffers ProfitSocial won't solve this issue, it's an official position.
I've talked to a representative of every network.
That information's not in TOS, but you'll know when you want to check it out.

I didn't test on Saturday, but I did it on Sunday.
And results were even better:

screenshot_5-png.7979


+74.14% total ROI
+$17.87 total profit


Last test
+21.95% total ROI
+$6.21 total profit


@iMonetizeIt
stable in top, @ClickDealer perform well
@LosPollos and Adverten lost battle but not war that day :LOL:
Because, as they say in support, it takes time to get to the selection of offers.
But I think a small affiliate can't wait a few months, time is dearest currency

Hi Clickstar,
TopOffers and ProfitSocial partners.
Our affiliates could choose 1 network to test.
If you`d like to switch to other network you should stop traffic into 1 network and start testing traffic on other.
More details http://topoffers.com/landing.php?utm_source=afflift

Hit me up in PM with your email used for registrations, i`ll personally check all information.

Thank you.

TopOffers Don't have smartlinks, only single dating offers
But ProfitSocial Have smartlink, but dont have single dating offers

Incredible solution, if i need single dating offer later - need close account and create new 🤦‍♂️
But that's two completely different products.

Very cool. I'm going to have to give iMonetizeIt another look :D
These guys are more popular on CIS countries market.
As well as adverten, @LosPollos :) @ClickDealer is worldwide network from start
Roots of all these networks from russian speaking countries.
I'm well acquainted with this markets, if a aff networks works with NET-XX+ nobody works with them in dating vertical :)
NET-3 good /NET-7 normal/NET-14 - suspiciously :LOL:

I guess @LosPollos is the first one in dating industry who did NET-7 payments and now they have a huge market share in world right now.

okay, enough with philosophy for today 🤣

Yesterday's results:
screenshot_18-png.8011

+38.96 Total ROI
+9.13$ Total Profit


And Adverten big boss today :)
As we can see voluum tried to send quite a bit of traffic to other offers, but everything is useless, more than half traffic was spent on non converted offers :devilish: With auto rotation, it makes sense, in previous tests, these offers have worked.

I'll observe behavior for a while longer and need tests with kintura.
Anyway, we see voluum auto optimization + 4 smartlinks + clickstar = profit
Yeah, well, there's only enough income to pay for coffee and voluum subscription (with any luck :LOL: )
But I think it's better than not drinking a cup of coffee a day and spend it to non effective campaigns
And if you do it in a few countries, I think 30-50 bucks daily is pretty real.
I'm barely wasting any time for these campaigns, and my opinion about auto optimization is not a useless thing.

But I think every normal affiliate wants to make $1,000-1500 a day, spending 1-2 hours a week.
Only problem is when products with AI can bring these figures, I'm afraid we won't be needed.
I think that's what evolution of next X years will be like.

Results looked really good yesterday. Excited to see how it's looking today :D
Yeah, me too.
Today, i have great news, @TopOffers ProfitSocial closed my topoffers account and create profit social account.
I hope my manager Victoria from Topoffers won't be offended by me and it doesn't look like a betrayal, i love youu :love:
Its great network, and first where i find dating offers with 3 revenue models - CPL, CPS, Revshare
I did it for science and new smartlink history :LOL:

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT FOR ALL CLICKSTAR ADVERTISERS:
Dont buy DE traffic from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
i need test our Smartlink On Steroids 🤣
And test profit social too, need more traffic
Thank you))

Today Results
afst-png.8077


Hmm, need increase bids, amount of traffic is too little for a test
600 visits for a day, yesterday 900, day before 1169
Apparently, after my posts, competition has increased

+$6.05 TOTAL PROFIT
+49.69% TOTAL ROI


iMonetizeit today leader, adverten & clickdealer & lospollos 😭

Optimized smartlinks in my flow

Chapter 1: Push it to the limit with Clickstar (COMPLETED)


Ok, we have some results with my 1st idea:
Its works and generate profit
Voluum
autorotation works and generate profit without my time
Smartlinks in flow works and generate profit
Clickstar traffic works and generate profit

Total Stats Jan 17-Jan 25:

screenshot_5-png.8156


Adverten / 43 Leads / +$31.27 / +53.06% ROI

Imonetizeit Adult Jumps / 25 Leads / +$27.57 ROI +63.97%

Lospollos / 8 Leads / +$12.64 ROI +47.04%

iMonetizeit Mainstream Jumps / 8 Leads / +$10.31 ROI +45.83%

Clickdealer / 17 Leads / +$4.62 / ROI +14.53%

Total Cost: $184.20
Total Profit: $85.38
Total CPV: $0.0225
Total ROI: 46.36%
Total EPV: $0.03287

Adverten profit leader but imonetizeit have biggest ROI

(PS imonetizeit have 2 types of prelanders in system settings and i test 2, adult and mainstream jumps)

I have days with red ROI
considering that there has been little traffic in general, we see very strong ROI movements.
WHY? Read this topic and multiply by X?? because we have double optimisation.
Voluum rotate my offers + smartlink offer rotate & find best offers to my traffic source.

screenshot_1-png.8157


How its real? ALL networks works with profit?
BUY cheaper, Sell MORE

I was start buying DE with little bid - 0.02$ and update to 0.025$ later:
Its cheaper than yesterday average bids here , but my CTR greater than average in network.
Its dating, dating have great CTR , great CTR = ability to buy CHEAPER

Few networks can sell it at this price, I think that's the key point.
My total EPV its $0.03287 if I were buy DE with bid 0.035$ - we'd get a negative result.

My total opinion:
Small bids = Small Revenue for 1 geo.
I've never done a long tests like this before and I get really nervous when I get little traffic, so I always put in big bids.
I usually run a lot of campaigns during day with spending a day XX-XXX$ a lot of chaos that hasn't always worked.
And now, after these tests, I really understand why 80% of the campaigns never had green results...

And I got idea (NEW STRATEGY)
What if i do 10/20/30 such campaigns like DE for ALL EU countries with small bids?
$85.38*10/20/30 for 10 days sounds really good?

Doesn't sound like it anymore, man, are you kidding me?
You spent 10 days and making 85 bucks

But if I hadn't done this test, I would never have thought about it, now I can see it with my own eyes.
And this is very important.

It's really in my head to think that I'm ashamed to say such a result with 85$ profit...

And I'm happy to share these thoughts with you as we are sometimes obsessed with someone else's non-existent opinion in our heads.

Chapter 2: Sky's The Limit (IN PROCESS)


We have new game changer :cool:

Well, profitsocial.
I hope you're ready for a fight.
I add you to flow.

My plan (please give me any advice if you have)

1. Now i update my blacklist, stopped non converted promos and start only top converted promos and test 5 smartlinks (with profitsocial)
2. I try bid war and increase to 0.03$ BUT if i dont have any results after 2-3 days on green zone I'll lower bids and use a strategy from my new idea.
(And need some time for ProfitSocial offer optimization)

I'm doing this for the reason - will I get more traffic?

Will my total daytime profit increase or not?

After this - I'll already be trying everything else.
