Realizing Opportunity in 3rd World Countries

Just a few years ago, CPA offers that were available to countries other then the US, UK, Canada, Australia and sometimes New Zealand, were few and far between. And even if there were offers available to other countries, they converted horribly or they hardly paid anything. Basically, the offers were only good for leftover traffic you had on sites that trickled in.

First, you have the advertiser who is looking for people to buy their product or for people who are interested in a certain service, such as attorneys looking for new cases, car insurance companies looking for new clients,…

What Does CTR Mean?

In short, CTR means click-through rate, or sometimes people will say click-through ratio. The term in itself means exactly what the term says, in that it means how many times a person clicked on a link or ad online versus how many times it was shown. CTR is used in many different ways, so just knowing a general CTR of an ad campaign can be deceiving.

What does AOR Mean?

In terms of marketing and advertising, AOR means agency of record. Agency of record means one company hired another company, usually in the marketing/advertising industry, to handle the marketing and promotion of an advertising campaign of some sort. It can vary from company to company, depending on the service being rendered, but mostly, it is that.

How to Pitch Local Lead Generation

I love the area that I live in. It is rural, way off the beaten path and as safe as you could ask for. I also love the businesses that are in my area. They are mostly comprised of hard-working people who provide some type of service to the community. Tech firms are non-existent (well, almost ). Why do I say this? Because this area was extremely ripe and ready to tap into when it came to local lead generation. There are tons of construction companies, plumbers & any other…
