How can I get the most out of Popunders and use them to my advantage?

More than 90% of people find Popunders annoying or objectionable. And we can certainly relate & understand where these people are coming from.

However, much of the Popunder-hate stems from the highly questionable early practices of Popunder promotion in what can only be described as Pop hell.  This was quite common in the late 90s and early 2000s.

However, Popunders & Popups simply don’t have to have the bad connotations they once had.

Popunders remain an excellent way to maximize revenue.

Here’s a modern day winning formula to getting the most out of your Pops:

  • Make them smart
  • Make them legit
  • Make them fun & interactive
  • Make them look like part of your website

What are some tips for designing an effective Landing Page?

First and foremost, the landing page — aka the sales page — is an extension of the ad tool.

And if it’s not, it should be.

When visitors click on a banner or any other ad tool, they do so because what they saw has attracted them in some capacity.

When you’re designing a landing page, you should pay particular attention to the following elements:

  • Header
  • Body
    • Call-to-action,
    • Above-the-fold positioning
  • Responsiveness

Why use a Landing Page?

The landing page is an extension of the ad tool. For example, on a banner ad, you have a short message (text, image or both) that incites the visitor to click on it. The landing page is there to reinforce that message, to further inform and convince your visitor to ultimately complete an action.

With a well-built landing page, you get to show your visitor what’s great about the product you’re promoting, and why he should sign up.

How to Make a Dedicated Landing Page

Just like an aircraft needs a suitable landing strip to land, a successful web marketing campaign isn’t complete without a landing page of its own.

You want your visitor to land carefully, naturally, and methodically on a landing page that exemplifies your sales funnel.

Remember, your landing is there to serve as the entry point into that funnel.

Let’s take a deeper look at the main components of a successful landing page in the adult industry.

Identify the type of landing page you need

In other words, what’s the goal of your campaign?

Whatever this goal, it usually falls into one of these two main types of landing pages:

1. The Lead Generation Landing Page

This is typically the kind of landing page you’d want for establishing and building an adult audience.

2. The Click-Through Landing Page

How can I ensure that my Ads don’t get filtered by AdBlock?

Tips to get around AdBlock:

  1. Host your own banner ads and name the file names something unique.
  2. Change file names routinely.
  3. Avoid using highly filtered AdBlock trigger words (such as: “banners”,  “ads”, “advertisements” “static”, and “sponsors” in filenames and directories).

In some cases, an entire URL will be filtered and AdBlock won’t allow you to click it.

There’s a 2 Step strategy to get around this.

  1. Create a New File.
  2. Redirect to this New File.

What’s a good pop script for Split Testing / Offer Rotation?

One thing we’ve talked a lot about at CrakRevenue has been the importance of split testing.

Split testing (also known as A/B testing) has been defined as a method of conducting “controlled, randomized experiments” with the ultimate goal of seeing what converts the best.

A great automated way of doing this is through javascript.

One of our affiliates who also happens to be a programmer was kind enough to share his custom/modified popunder script with us which makes Split Testing different offers easier than ever if you have your own website.
