How Golf is like Affiliate Marketing

by Bryn Youngblut on August 23, 2013

I know a lot of you who have me on facebook probably notice I golf a lot.

Golf is one of my favorite things too do. I get to enjoy the outdoors and relax.

Mainly I stick to golfing during the weekdays because it tends too be less busy and anyone who has golfed before knows that waiting 15 minutes at the next tee block and having another group on your ass is really annoying.

I feel blessed that I can play anytime I feel like it and try to take advantage of it as much as possible.

How is golf like affiliate marketing?

I guess you can compare parts of this to lots of other sports or things but this is what I think about when I play.

Golf is hard. Affiliate Marketing is hard.

I run into people all the time who say they suck at golf and there is no way they could ever get good. This type of mentality irritates me, about any sport or subject really.

If you REALLY WANT TO DO SOMETHING you can do it.

The other day a friend said, “I suck at chipping, I’ll never be good at it, how do you do it?”

I replied quiet simply, “Well…I used practice in my backyard for hours on end multiple times a week.”

You have to WANT to be good at whatever it is. Excuses and complaining just hold you back and you will never make any progress.

OK so back to how I think Golf is similar too affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is hard and what I have seen it’s much harder these days then it ever was.

Just like golf you need to PRACTICE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER until you figure out what works.

Tiger woods didn’t just walk on a golf course and shoot well, he worked his ass off since he was a kid.

No successful affiliate marketer uploaded an ad and started making millions on their first campaign, it just doesn’t happen.

Too the point

I guess what it all boils down too is if you aren’t in this 200% then you are wasting yours and likely others time.

With anything in life you have to WANT it for what it is. Don’t look at the money others make and assume it’s easy and won’t take A LOT of work.

If that was the case I would start a grocery chain tomorrow and hope walmart doesn’t destroy me. Probably not the best example but you get the point..

Many people I talk too including myself fell into this industry some random way or another and have embraced it ever since. We are so lucky to be in this awesome industry.

Iʹm a firm believer that in the theory that people only do their best at things they truly enjoy. It is difficult to excel at something you donʹt enjoy.

Prosper202 Cronjobs Error – Fix

by Bryn Youngblut on July 12, 2013

I just had this error on my prosper202, it seems an update or something with MySQL caused the table to crash and I could not find a solution anywhere so I am posting this for anyone who has this issue in the future.

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM 202_cronjobs WHERE cronjob_type='secon' AND
cronjob_time='1373633941'

Table './yourdb_yourdb/202_cronjobs' is marked as crashed and should be
repaired

Simply go to your WHM or whatever your servers admin panel is and start the “Repair a MySQL Service”.

This should fix the crashed table. I know it seems simple but I didn’t know wtf to do at first.

Hope this helps someone!

Amazing PPV Target Scaling Script

by Bryn Youngblut on March 15, 2013

Obligatory haven’t posted in forever starting sentence: (Holy shit a new post? Whats it being almost a year now… )

I found this simple but awesome PPV target scaling script years ago I believe on the Affbook/PPV Playbook forums (they are awesome btw and yes that is my referral link).

Here is a screenshot for an example of what it does:

ppv target scaling

 

You would be surprised just how much traffic these variations can get and most of the time with ZERO competition.

Why bid high with lots of others on credit.com when you can bid on:

credit.c

credit.co

/credit.c

/credit.co   etc.

Before this script I used to do this manually…yeah FML.

That screenshot is my self hosted version, it’s a very plain simple script but takes a second to use and does wonders for scaling out ppv campaigns.

I searched around and believe I found the original creator. I guess they just gave out the script back in the day on the forums then later made a post about it where others can use it (after a tweet or share): http://moneymachinefactory.org/blog/scale-your-ppv-campaign-with-this-script/

If you want a self hosted version just let me know I’m sure I can send you the file but realistically there is no data collection or anything so I don’t see any risk using the one on their site.
