Lead generation campaigns I'm not going to link to my actual sites, because I don't want you to copy my sites because it could make me make less money. Plus I don't want people filling out the forms as it will hurt my lead quality for my lead buyers, but in general if you see someone running an affiliate ad somewhere (for example, it's a lead generation ad where someone fills out their information or calls a number to get a quote, or it's a Shopify store) on Facebook or Google (there is also Outbrain/Taboola and many smaller ad networks, but Facebook/Instagram and Google/YouTube are most often used, followed by Outbrain/Taboola and I guess Snapchat) and they've been doing it consistently for a month, they are probably making more than they are spending. I do financial lead gen, becuase it is recession proof and it doesn't come and go like other trending markets; for example, diets like Keto. I've tried auto finance, business finance, credit card, and credit repair. I've also added VoIP and credit monitoring questions to my forms, where I get paid on a CPA (cost per acquired customer) basis. I linked to a great video explaining what this industry is and why it is so profitable. June 2020 alive a month
Small business loan ad arbitrage I stopped TikTok, because I needed to make money. It was a great marketing experiment though, not black magic at all, just pandering to a young audience. Although I lost some money on advertising my credit card site, I was able to make back $1800 last month by marketing small business loans using Facebook ads through an affiliate partnership. I linked to a video where an acquaintance in the industry is talking about affiliate marketing. May 2020 alive a month
