Facebook Spamming Revealed - Lead-Gen Scams Hit the Big Time

Facebook Spamming Revealed - Lead-Gen Scams Hit the Big Time

This week lead-gen and continuity scheme scams hit the big time with influential blogs TechCrunch and Silicon Alley Insider running major posts on the subject, and Facebook, MySpace, Offerpal and Zynga scrambling to put a good face on it all. And then Dennis Yu confessed to a shady past which upset certain high-earning affiliates no end.

How to Spam Facebook Like a Pro

The TechCrunch article created something of a firestorm (sample comment: “In a nutshell, the offers that monetize the best are the ones that scam/trick users.”) which was fanned the next day by one of our favorite affiliate marketing bloggers, Dennis Yu of Blitz-Local. He guest posted a piece on TechCrunch called “How To Spam Facebook Like A Pro: An Insider’s Confession” in which he talked about publishers accessing personal user data and showing it on landing pages, cloaking pages so that Facebook employees couldn’t see them and being threatened with violence by the CEO of a top 25 ad network. Key graf:

There was no way that Facebook—and definitely not the Federal Trade Commission—could keep up with the “innovation” happening. Witness the virtual currency scam, where users complete the offers mentioned above to earn points in a game. It doesn’t take a genius to know that the quality of such leads is garbage—these users are filling out forms just to get the points.

Dennis admits he posted on TechCrunch to hustle for business, and he was inviting a negative reception from certain sections of the affiliate marketing community. Another of our blog-faves, Barman, made his feelings known with enthusiasm at ppc.bz.

How to Get a Better Payout

How to Get a Better PayoutNot many new affiliate marketers realize that they could be making more money without doing anymore work. When you are working with numerous affiliate networks you run across the same offers from different networks. What you don’t realize is that you can negotiate a better payout. Most affiliate networks have a base payout which is set for every campaign. The secret to getting a better payout is just plain and simple, ask your affiliate manager. Nine out of ten times they will most likely boost your payout. Remember affiliate managers are there for you.

How to Play Network Payouts Against Each Other

If you have two networks that have the same offer but different payouts then this can be a good thing. For example network A has campaign BOB with a payout of $23/lead while network B has campaign BOB with a payout of $21.50/lead. Now all you have to do is contact your affiliate manager from network B and tell them that network A is paying $23/lead for campaign BOB and you would like them to match or beat that. More than likely they will beat the other offer. So instead of making $23/lead you would be making $25/lead. I even had some go up $5 dollars on a $15/lead campaign!

You could then just play each network against each other back and forth until you get a even better payout. Affiliate networks would rather break even or lose money (if you are super important) on a campaign then have you run the same campaign at another network.

Just a reminder, you most likely will have to show some type of proof that you are getting that payout from the network. May it be an email, screen shot, or some other type of written evidence.

Get Traffic To Your New Forum

Starting a new forum is very time consuming as well as a difficult task. The biggest problem is not creating and setting up your forum but getting people to register and be active in the forum. I get asked all the time on how to build a successful forum. The most important thing is to make sure you already have a good flow of traffic. Already having a website established with lots of users visiting your website and then adding a forum will be much easier then starting a forum from scratch. Here are some tips that should help you get your forum moving along.

Hire people to post in your forum

There are a lot of companies out there that you can pay for so many posts. Do some research online and make sure they have good reviews and feedback.

Some services that offer paid forum posting

Offer Contest

Having a contest to help build your forum is an easy and cheap way to get people to register and participate in your forum. You could offer people who join your forum and post 10 quality posts (Not short “thank you” posts will count) an entry into a drawing to win an ipod or something related to your forum.

You can then post your contest on other similar forums or other websites to bring in traffic.

Offer Incentive

Similar to having a contest, you can offer new forum members points or rewards for posting so many times. There are a lot of forum addons that offer reward points that can be cashed in for rewards and prizes.

Ad Revenue Sharing

Offer to share your ad space with forum users who meet a certain criteria. When users sign up they can enter there google adsense ID and when they post messages in your forum a banner can rotate with the users ads. OR you can offer a rev share (percentage) of the click to your members.

These are just a few ideas to help promote your new forum. Check back soon as I will be adding new ideas later.

“With DirectCPV, our clients can target ads with unsurpassed accuracy and get region-specific or international traffic, dramatically increasing conversion ratios and ROI on ad buys. It really is the most targeted type of contextual traffic that you can purchase on the internet today,” said Theng Kuoch, VP of Strategic Partnerships at DirectCPV. “Opening up our contextual pop system to include category specific traffic targeting in addition to URL and keyword bidding makes our platform a unique method for marketers to reach exactly the audience they seek to monetize.”

The advanced CPV bidding system allows marketers to access consumers at a starting auction bid price of only $0.004 for Run of Network Ads and allows even more targeted bids by URL, Keyword or Category starting at $0.01 USD on a CPV basis. When you factor in the savings you get from working with a dedicated support team of experts who help you get the best results from each ad buy, streamline your ad spending and fine-tune your marketing campaigns, working with DirectCPV becomes an even more obvious bargain for advertisers.

DirectCPV has developed a new keyword caching technology and a proprietary category matching system designed to maximize the benefits of using the new contextual popup system.
