What are some tips for building a sustainable business with CrakRevenue?

Making money is the core of any affiliate business—and any business that hopes to avoid bankruptcy.

But, making money at any cost may actually have more detrimental effects and pitfalls that can just as easily end your business faster than – say – bankruptcy.

There are some basic rules that need to be respected if you really wish to build those strong, long-lasting partnerships that are the cornerstone to sustainable growth.

 

Here are the 7 things you should have ingrained in your memory by now…

1- Respect our TOS, especially Section 5

2- Know your traffic won’t convert? Then don’t send it to a PPL offer.

3- Don’t act like a FISH … IF you’re a WHALE

4- Use only authorized or licensed content to promote

5- Leave all communication channels open

 

…Read the entire list HERE — we’re not done yet!

Pay-Per-Sale (PPS)

Pay-Per-Sale or PPS – also known as Cost-Per-Sale (CPS) – stands for Pay Per Sale.

It refers to a pricing model where affiliates are paid once they directly generate a sale from the merchant’s or advertiser’s website.

A PPS offer typically pays more per individual sale, but it often has a lower associated conversion rate than its PPL (pay-per-lead) counterpart. This is because PPS offers require the user to enter their credit card information to classify as a sale.

In most cases, assuming the user enters their credit card information, the affiliate will still earn the PPS commission even on trials.

Is there a way to promote a specific model on MyFreeCams?

You can send your traffic directly to your favorite MFC model’s room if she’s online.

Simply add &model=nameofthecamgirl at the end of your CrakRevenue MFC link code.

(e.g., http://frtyb.com/go/1q1q1q1q/DEFAULT&model=SweetSunny)

(The above example is for examples purposes only — this is NOT your affiliate link)

If the model you choose is not online, the system will detect this and your visitor will be redirected to the MyFreeCams homepage.

 

Please also note: This may not always work on certain web-browsers:

IE 6,7,8 and Safari — These browsers are known to keep the user on MyFreeCams’ homepage.

Why are certain offers capped/blocked?

All new CrakRevenue affiliates start out with a cap of 25 leads per day, per offer, for a minimum 5-day period.

You’re just starting out with us, so this will allow us to get to know your traffic better before we grant you full access.

When will my offers become uncapped/unblocked?

We closely monitor capped accounts and will automatically lift the restriction once the conversion ratio is satisfactory. You will be notified immediately once the cap is lifted from your account. Although, If you happen to send more than 25 leads per day to a specific program during this small time period, don’t hesitate to contact your Affiliate Adviser or the support team.

What will happen to the leads I send while my account is capped/blocked?

During this trial period, if or when the cap is surpassed, the offer will be redirected to the appropriate Revshare offer. The cap is only temporary and will be lifted as soon as we’re able to see that you’re sending quality traffic that converts.

Do you geo-target your offers?

We are highly experienced in the art of geo-targeting.

Your users & visitors will always see the best available offer based on their geographic location, so you always stand to make the most money possible.

Example:

If one of your visitors from an unaccepted country visits a specific offer, this visitor will be redirected to the appropriate offer that does accept this visitor’s location.

The good news: traffic from unaccepted GEOs is never lost!

What is the CrakRevenue Legacy Balance Transfer Offer?

The CR stats from the original platform (CrakRevenue Legacy) and your older links continue to be accounted for and reported in new platform.

The CrakRevenue Legacy stats are reproduced every 5 minutes and can be found in the CrakRevenue 2.0 platform in an offer called “CrakRevenue legacy balance transfer.”

You can apply an offer filter in the Statistics panel to see those statistics only. You need to specifically visit the Legacy platform to see specific offer details pertaining to conversions or sales.

Why can’t I see conversions on lead-based CPA offers?

If you’re promoting a Pay-Per-Lead offer (SOI, DOI), you are paid for the leads that you generate only. We are unable to disclose any other information pertaining to the lead that we paid you for. We monitor conversions on our side for traffic quality / CPA purposes only.

If you want to know if your free-to-paid lead ratio is OK for continued eligibility into any SOI or DOI offer, you are welcome to reach out to your Affiliate Manager or our support team (if you don’t have one) and express your concerns.

However, if you’re seeking detailed information on the number of free-to-paid users you have referred, we are unable to disclose this, as it goes against our Provider’s agreements.  For those whom this is important to, we recommend promoting a RevShare model instead, as a RevShare model would provide the detailed information you’re seeking.

In short, if there’s a problem with your free-to-paid ratio or PPL offer eligibility, we’ll contact you.

Revshare, RPS, and RS

Revshare — sometimes labeled as RS or RPS — stands for Revenue Sharing.

At CrakRevenue there are 2 types of Revshare programs:

 

1) Revshare Lifetime

When you promote a Revshare lifetime offer, it means you get a percentage of whatever your user spends — anytime your user spends anything.

Revshare Lifetime income is for the lifetime of the user you refer and it never expires.

Example: If you are promoting a Lifetime Revshare Cam offer, and the user registers for free, you receive no commission for this lead. You would only receive a commission if this lead of yours eventually decided on upgrading their account and purchases “tokens” or “credits.”  If the token or credit package costs $19.99, you would receive X% of that number, and this would be your Revshare earnings on that particular amount.

 

2) Revshare

When you promote any Revshare offer, it means you receive a promised percentage of the commissions paid by your traffic, from the advertiser.

This means that the commission paid is shared by CrakRevenue and its affiliates.

Example: If you are promoting a Revshare Nutra offer, and your user purchases a bunch of products, you receive a percentage of the commission paid by the advertiser: The commissions are shared between CrakRevenue and you. If your user spendings are $100 for instance, and the payout offered is set at 80% Revshare, you’ll receive $80 by of the payout.

 

 

For examples on how profitable Revshare offers can become, please see:

Rev-up Your Earnings, Permanently!

Multi-CPA

The Multi-CPA label is used to indicate that an offer can be paid on different payout types.

For example, when you use CrakRevenue Smartlinks or promote a CrakRevenue Survey, the offers shown to the user will vary depending on their geographic location and the device he or she is using. Therefore, the conversion model may vary as well and – consequently – the payout type.

Therefore, a multiple-payout model usually consists of a mix of Pay Per Lead (DOI & SOI), Pay Per Sale, and Revshare & Lifetime Revshare payouts.
