Default How do you get hundreds of campaigns?

I was thinking about this earlier and wondering how the big players have 100+ campaigns based around CPA offers. I guess I just don't understand it. There are only so many verticals right?

dating, insurance, biz opps, diet, education, finance pretty much.

How do you get hundreds of campaigns out of those? Do you take the same exact offer and run 20 urls per campaign? I just don't see how you get hundreds of campaigns out of 5 verticals.

A good example is a Dark Orbit campaign I made. I'm targeting all of the online flash/browser game websites with that 1 campaign. So, that pretty much means I can't run any other game offers because I'm already targeting all of the URLs and I don't want to bid against myself. Make sense? What am I not seeing?

As far as I've seen, 'campaigns' don't necessarily mean individual offers. There are two ways I group campaigns:

1. Volume: Lets go with your Dark orbit example. I'm not going to test a high volume URL like agame.com in the same campaign as some piddly little game site that only gets a few impressions per day. Agame.com will chow down my entire budget before I get an accurate sample size of some of the lesser trafficked URLs. Grouping by volume is a good way to fine tune your test budget.

2. Profitability: I like to put my profitable targets in a separate campaign from my test targets. That way I can have a good measure of the 'health' of my campaign based on how well the profitable targets are doing.


Also, remember that some targets will perform better with different offers within the same vertical for various reasons. Test test test!

Thanks Ian, I stopped running that Dark Orbit campaign. Only paid out $1.10! And I'm pretty sure at this point every free browser gamer has at least attempted that game. No wonder my CTR was horrible...

Then again, a 2% CTR for PPV is normal. But the payout was so bad for like 7 different forms. Oops.

I'm only gonna promote high paying stuff from now on. It's just hard with AdOn cause traffic is minimal. I'll probably try to get 30+ campaigns on here with 500+ urls each.

no live fan clubs on mt right now, but they work there for sure. like anything else, fan clubs can stop working after a period of time. the fast push example in the videos was run just like that with the amex flux offer successfully on mt for a long time.

Ok I'll keeping doing some more quick push stuff. Is there an example of passing on the email from the fan club to an email submit with flux? I don't know the code to make it go from the club to the transition page to the offer.
