Mobile traffic is the “wave of the future” for many affiliate marketers. I personally know guys putting up astronomical monthly revenues driving cheap mobile traffic to email/phone submits. In recent years the amount of people with “smart phones” that have full web browsers has grown exponentially and the number of opportunities that leaves affiliate marketers is almost endless. Today, I want to talk about how to collect a user’s email address and send them to a mobile optimized offer to monetize.
To get started you first need to decide where to purchase your media. A few of the more popular mobile traffic sources include AdMob, Decktrade, AdWhirl, Adfonic, and of course Google Adwords. I’ve ran the most volume with AdMob/Decktrade, but there is really an abundance of sources out there to test. Choose a few and then prepare your campaign. To get started you’ll need an account at a mailing service provider, a couple of mobile optimized CPA campaigns, and a mobile optimized landing page.
AWeber is my mailing service provide of choice because of their high deliverability rate. I also like their follow-up sequence feature as they allow you to send unlimited messages automatically to your subscribers. I’ve never had a problem with them and their prices are right along with the rest of their competition. They also have a pretty sick web form generator.
Most all CPA affiliate networks are now carrying a variety of mobile-optimized offers. Most are dating but some I suggest you look for are email/phone submits as these can be very lucrative on the back-end of building your list.
The jQuery mobile-optimized framework is one of the simplest ways to build out a customized landing page that can begin collecting emails. It took me about five minutes to create this very simple, yet effective, landing page:
The HTML code for this is REALLY simple:
Pretty cool stuff huh? Are you getting some ideas about how powerful this can be? In my above example you’ll notice a redirect that goes to our Mastermind Forum (http://www.imgrind.com/forum). This is where you would want to send your visitor AFTER they enter their email address. You can split test this but either sending them to a CPA offer or another pre-sale landing page has proven to be effective. This will allow you to recoup some of your advertising costs all while building a massive list that can be monetized daily.
