250 Leads in 1 Day Update: The Good and Bad

November 7, 2011 Posted by Tyler Cruz

Wow – 2 posts in 1 day. And 2 posts directly related to making money online in a day. I can’t remember the last time I made 2 posts in a day. What on Earth is going on here?

So, if you hadn’t read my previous post yet, I suggest you do before reading this one.

If you did read my previous post, then you will probably be curious as to how my campaigns ended up faring. Well, there’s good news and bad news.

When given the choice, I always like to start with the bad news (I don’t understand why some people choose the good news first… don’t they understand that they will then end with the bad?), and so let me begin with that.

The Bad News

Remember how I mentioned at the end of my last post that my traffic had mysteriously stopped around 9:30PM last night?

I was hoping that it would continue in the morning, but unfortunately it didn’t. For some reason, all but 1-2 of my campaigns stopped sending in any traffic at all. This was very disappointing… was all that traffic yesterday a fluke from a glitch or something?

I made a number of inquires about it and have yet to hear back from anybody, and so it is frustrating to receive all that traffic yesterday and then just have it suddenly stop for some unknown reason.

I need to find a way to get it back.

The Good News

The good news is that my campaigns completely ROCKED yesterday.

I finished calculating the majority of my campaigns a couple of hours ago, and was pleasantly surprised with the results.

I was a little nervous that my math and predictions may have been off, but it turns out that they were dead-on. It just seemed too good to be true, so I was second guessing myself.

I mean, just check out these ROI’s:


That’s an average of 100% ROI across the majority of my campaigns, with the most trafficked ones at 200-300%! You know what that means… SCALE POSSIBILITIES UP THE WA-ZOO!


So yeah, I profited $162 from those campaigns yesterday Smile Feels awesome, I must admit.

It turns out that I’m also doing well with my CPV campaigns (not included in the stats above), running the traffic through DirectCPV. So, I have something else that I can tinker around with… although, I’m really a complete novice when it comes to CPV (not that I’m not a novice at affiliate marketing in general).

Time to Scale

Now, the question is: can I get that traffic back, and once (if?) I do, can I scale these campaigns?

The ROI’s say yes, but often things in theory don’t always work out as planned.

To be perfectly honest though, I’d be happy just to get the traffic that I had yesterday back. After all, $162/day works out to $5,000 a month profit.

We will have to wait and see what happens…

  1. Thanks for sharing this Tyler, never expected you’re earning that big in just 1 day. It would be a good motivation for other online entrepreneur to see your earnings.

  2. Ramon says:

    Very nice statistics Tyler, now if you could only get this 30 days in a row, you got a definite winner on your side!

    Tyler, it sounds like whatever ad network you’re using has given your campaigns a low quality score. If you’re using Adwords I can almost guarantee that happened. It’s easy to set up a campaign and have it run for a while, but after a day the bots detect that it’s leading to a sign up and it then determines that it’s low quality. Most ad networks are pretty strict about it. It always kind of boggles my mind why people put so much work into small campaigns that they have to constantly rebuild or move to another network, when if they put that effort into a quality site they eventually can have a long term income generator. The downside is that the returns take time to build, not instant like PPC campaigns. Anyway, best of luck Tyler, keep us posted on how you’re doing.

  4. Wow, you sure do a thorough job of analyzing your campaigns. I suppose that is a vital step to knowing what works and what doesn’t (can you tell I don’t have any sort of campaign?).

    I’m interested to read the reasons for the sudden stop in traffic. Will you keep us updated?

  5. Congrats again on the success of your campaigns 🙂

  6. interesting post. I wonder why the traffic did all of the sudden stop. Did you ever get a response to your inquiries.

  7. That’s cool! I’m always interested in this kind of stuff. Hopefully you’ll have another update soon. And also find out why your traffic dropped at 9:30. Was it at 9:30PM? I wonder if something shifted because wasn’t that around when lots of people adjusted their clocks (daylight savings time ended)?

  8. I’ve seen a few of my campaigns be outbid by larger companies as well. During this time of year…even though I’m moved farther away from paid traffic, I typically have to stop targeting a number of keywords. It’s just impossible to compete with large brand buyers during the Christmas season. Luckily, Christmas seasons brings a number of other opportunities to the forefront for affiliates.

    I hope this is a joke. You’re supposed to be some big time affiliate, showing off your blog and you are happy with $162 profit in a day??

    I think you trollin?? I hope?

    If this is true, you really should quit this affiliate marketing game man. You have no clue what you’re doing. If I only made $162 in a day I’d probably dive in front of a bus.

  10. Jasmine says:

    Wow, that’s amazing. If I could make a 10% out of the $162 in a day, I would be hiding behind the door laughing!

  11. This is my first year learning how to build my own website and understanding SEO. Its always good to read up on a article and learn something new for the day.You Making $165 dollars is not bad Tyler, Keep up the good work!

  12. Kelli says:

    This is tough stuff. You got to stick with it a LONG time to start seeing results. But it is doable.

  13. Did you get an answer for why the traffict stopped?

  14. nice stats, keep up the hard work
