What tips do you have for affiliates that want to build a profitable campaign?
For any affiliate looking to build a profitable campaign the first thing I’d look at is to see what vertical the offer is in. If it’s one I have experience in all the better because I can run it on my tried and tested sources. If it’s a completely new niche I’d stick to mass market verticals, then I’d ask my AM for a list of top performers, I’ll conduct some research on the type of sales material needed and finally run on my traffic sources and optimize placements.
What do you think are the most important trends in app marketing right now?
The most important trend I for any advertiser should always be retention rates. Especially if its a gaming offer. I’d look to see what exactly my user is doing after installation. How many times a day are they opening, how long till a sale or uninstall with this data I can then optimize accordingly.
What mobile devices do you use?
What are your favourite apps?
A flashlight app we’ve built so I’m a bit biased. Youtube, DU booster, and Skype.
What do you think about the Apple Watch?
Its pretty impressive not really an Apple fan but my friends are able to accomplish a lot more simply by tapping a screen on there wrist rather then have to pull out there phone everytime and worry about cracking the glass screen.
