The Truth About Two-Tier Affiliate Programs

The-Eye: Community Feedback [03.01.2020]

Feedback taken from this form.
Market it more really. Its an amazing place and more people need to know about it, also maybe add more things? IK thats hard but you have a community after all.
The only advertising we do is generally talking about or linking our data where relevant, like reddit posts, 4chan, etc. I've thought about branching out and making profiles on relevant forums and such but going this route usually pisses people off and we get accused of spamming. This could be dealt with by not just posting about our content but also adding to the conversation being had and helping people while having the-eye linked in our signature when taking forums as the example. This however is very time consuming and myself and staff have day jobs and lives outside of the-eye.
So we rely on word of mouth and more so the larger more insane projects I take on which often end up on news sites and roundups like vice motherboard.
Add actual frontends for the data, not just an open directory
We will never do this for the primary site, we always intended to be and always will be an open directory.
It's good
Thanks.
Easier organization and a download all tool
Organisation takes away from what we do most often which is mirror content, if we start organizing everything more strictly we lose the original content as it was intended to exist. As for a download all tool we've always been a fan of wget as it's the primary tool we use day to day when grabbing sites ourselves, it is a download all tool and we don't intend on developing anything else to further hold the hands of general users.
Load more than two downloads at a time
This would be nice and historically parallel downloads weren't limited but as we've grown to serve in excess of 35,000 unique visitors (10 million requests) every day we're unable to freely allow everyone to have unlimited parallel downloads due to hardware limitations. We focus on speed over parallel downloads, our speeds per connection aren't limited. The only way to fix this problem would be to throw a good chunk of cash at it to buy more hardware, we haven't asked for or done this for two reasons. The first being I don't like asking for donations when we don't strictly need to do so, the second being power(amps) limitations in our rack which we're currently running at around 80% capacity and couldn't add hardware to really make a difference without having to pay more monthly for the electricity.
whatever you can do to decrease the learning curve. I feel like I mostly have no idea what I'm doing.
This makes sense and we've written a few guides overtime but never focused much on this as we never really intended to grow and be presented to a general user audience. But the way I see it for a random person landing on the site is as a treasure trove of random things to spend hours digging though and not a place to offer anything specific which is another reason being an open directory lends well, for example if you put the time into exploring the content there generally isn't a topic our book section don't include one way or another.
Stop backing up tor sites
Why? We exist to save any and all data. More so data which is at risk of being lost to the world which puts tor sites near top of that list. Furthermore I'm only aware of one tor site we host with intent, aside from the recent onionscan dumps we've never actually focused on scraping tor and the content we host from tor has been given to us by the community and not something we've gone out of our way to collect.
make search more refined
This is high on our list, though being an open directory our original intent was never to have a search function. We have in the past played around with our options but our goal is to remain as low level as possible in terms of the code that runs on the site so finding fitting solution for search is quite the task. Our previous implementation used redis and would require a full scan of our entire site to update the database, this task is heavily I/O intensive so not very realistic given how often we update and add files. We've now launched searchin.the-eye.eu to allow full text search of our more important collections however this still has the same restrictions when it comes to updates.
searchin.the-eye.eu also runs on a separate server which luckily is spare hardware we have rather than something we have to pay a monthly cost for, this is something else we would have to throw cash at to solve with any kind of promptness.
Better load speeds and search
I imagine you mean download speeds as our page load times are well within reason given caching. There are a few factors to take into consideration when it comes to download speeds, we don't limit the download speed of anything on site however disk I/O is the main factor. We serve our most popular content from nvme which is always fast despite traffic load but our less popular content is stored on mechanical drives which is where people would exprience a little slower downloads from time to time.
This is somewhat mitigated by cloudflare who cache near all files below 512MB in size. If you're downloading a file larger than 512MB then we're serving it to you directly which is when you're hitting our disks, MSDN for example is on the mechanical disks and contains many files over 512MB so when 100s of users hit that directory (which is daily) each user is reading a file from a different part of the disk which on mechanical drives means physical movement of the disk and read heads need to keep up, this is what we mean by I/O load.
The only thing that would entirely alleviate this would be only using SSD storage which at our scale is not even remotely attainable without upfront costs very likely exceeding $10,000, so given that cost and our rate of expansion this will likely never happen unless we get/take funding from an external organisation or donor with stupidly deep pockets.
Its already perfect
Thank you <3
Keep up the good work
We'll try <3
Add a little more clarification and description for the files being hosted
Hmmm.... I thought about what to even say to this one, I think just saying that we host millions of files across thousands of topics makes doing this hard at best. I think our basic directory titles give you a fair idea of where to look for what failing that you can always do such Google searches as site:the-eye.eu occult for example to find more specific things.
Better job highlighting personal collections. I have found some thru reddit links and I understand you might exclude them from robots.txt to avoid attention but still I otherwise have extreme trouble with finding them.
I'm not sure what is meant by this, personal collections? And our robots.txt file contains the three letters 'lol' as in we don't use robots.txt or aim to hide anything.
Some rom channels need to be in order by title not numbers.
Rom channels? Honestly roms only exist at all on site because you download them and some people find us one of the better sources for them. If I had my way and it didn't spawn a lynch mob wanting my head then I'd remove them all, we're not a rom site and we don't aim to cater to rom folk, in fact it's become such a meme in the community we literally made merch for that crowd.
The site is easy to use.
Thanks, I think so too.
I think you ask for what you need, and the community tries to support for all the hard work everyone does. I understand partially what it's like to host TBs of data. I currently run a cloud service for my customers, which usually nets me about $300 a month from those that don't just take the free 10 GBs. My 4 servers plus internet costs me about $600 a month. So, keep up the good work! Know that what you do is precious to a great many people!
Thank you for the support and good luck with your service :)
Download all button(i mean it all)
We have that already wget -m -np -c -U "I'm fucking insane." -R "index.html*" "http://the-eye.eu/public/"
Fix the cloudflare shit, for example, if you wget /MSDN, you get an error 503 because of cloudflare. That's it. I think y'all do a great job with the site!
Lol!! This is entirely by design, I honestly can't figure out the traffic behavior that is generated by this collection. Aside from people just attempting to mirror it all simply just to have it entirely fucking our I/O as described above somewhere... We also see very strange traffic patterns to this directory, for example for months at a time a subset of IP addresses with multiple countries of origin will check the size of a Windows 7 iso every 4 seconds 24/7. Using cloudflare js check prevents this from being an issue while still allowing people who actually just need an iso to download it in their browser.
Or those that actually know what they're doing to still download with wget ;)
China also use msdn as a ddos target from time to time. :shrug:
I notice the site is very difficult to read and navigate in Mobile but besides that I love everything
Yeahhh our css doesn't fallback gracefully on mobile due the the way we implement styling. We could do better here.
Organizing all the content better would do
I covered this above.
Make a light mode please.
When I land on a light themed site these days and want to scratch my damn eyes out, the-eye will always embrace the dark however you can take care of this with many browser extensions I can think up that let you modify sites themes on the fly. (I use these to make light sites dark!!)
I don't think anything could be done better, and I understand the management changes now that Nemesis left.
Nem left months before he actually announced leaving, at one time he bettered the site and got things done. But toward the end he caused and left us with a lot of problems not only in the community but also in the code that we're still dealing with. We thank him for being a founder and having the foresight to start a community around what we do but we're no longer affiliated with him in any way.
Don't be afraid to change things if you feel they need to change.
I agree with this but the amount of stress that change bring sometimes can be unreal, users who understand that what we do is on our own time entirely unpaid are few and far between and the majority treat us like we're Google or some shit, backed by millions of dollars with unlimited time and resources. This clearly isn't the case and things take time so we don't change too often.
Archive roms like " Pokémon Volt White 2", also hacks from Games, because some are very hard and rare to get.
You answered why we don't have things like this on site rare, so unless someone tells us where to get them or gives them to us if we're not personally interested in the content we don't know it exists. For example we host PSDK/Essentials only because someone told us the hosting was at risk.
Have the Discord news posts accessible from the main page, easier to check out new files without going through discord. Make a Patreon or some other subscription program to keep donation flow up. If donations don't happen, people don't get paid, then the site goes down.
News on site isn't a bad idea, but at the same time we do want to encourage discord community growth which is why we haven't done this. As for patreon and other such services there are many reasons we haven't done this, first and foremost they take a rather large cut and we don't feel that's right for us at the moment given some months we don't bring in the required $600. Another reason we don't use such services is because there not easily transferable to a new owner should myself or the staff running it decide to leave, we've already dealt with similar issues when nem stepped down.
Over the last 3-5 months we've made our monthly targets and remained in fairly good standing so we don't intend to start a subscription service.
More easily indexed; I think it would also be better if there were some how-tos on how to contact staff if we have docs they might want. For instance, I've got a lot of comics that y'all are missing, but there's no info on how to upload to the site or what to do if you have missing info.
Easily indexed? As for how to's it's very simple to contact one of the staff and offer us data, however we don't often take data because 9/10 what is offered isn't something we're missing in terms of access to the files offered more so that we've chosen not to host those files. We host a vast spread of file types and topics so using your example we don't plan to host every comic ever, just a good and fair selection.
However, we curate the content so when you say "no info on how to upload to the site", yes, on purpose you can't directly upload data to the site.
Add a random download button that takes you to a random file that you can download.
This is rather time consuming to implement as a whole, however it's not a bad idea to have this for pdfs, 'click button, get random pdf' pretty cool idea, we may do this, thanks.
Folder file sizes seem to always be updating or processing. (Just a minor inconvenience)
Don't we know it, this functionality was implemented by nem. He was the primary developer while I curated and added data, so I didn't take much time to learn the code before he left which resulted in us having to figure it all out after the fact, that and the previous I/O limitations I mentioned make keep this upto date pretty hard so I just turned it of until we find a better solution.
Retrieve all the xbox 360 retail and xbox live arcade game content out there. Maybe some old shows to like sitcoms of Family Matters, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and others that aired in the USA. I love the preservation idea and what you all are doing, I have a few 2tb hard drives that have a lot of downloaded content from you all to preserve for years to come, if it wasn't for you all, this would not be possible. Also I think the site could use somewhat better organization. Find everything on the main page to videos, metadata, roms (alvro), etc.
If you mean we should host that 360 stuff we already do for the most part, see /alvro/Microsoft/. As for sitcoms and TV content generally we don't intend to host anything like this on our primary site as it's a HUGE target for DMCA so wouldn't last long. We do however run vv.the-eye.eu for our donors which contains a lot of this type of content sourced from vhs for the most part.
I've addressed organisation above.
Don't lose petabyte arrays
:,(
A little more organization would be good (directory calculations being up-to-date, some folders moved to better categories), but otherwise, the site is very easy to use and clean.
I've addressed organisation above. But it's nice to hear from some that the site is easy to use, I think so to.
I don't see any problems, personally.
Sweeet.
Index still feels a bit cluttered. More broad groupings (ie audio, books, documents) would be helpful to newcomers. Maybe a readme for more niche things?
Clutter is somewhat on purpose, I find it more interesting than strict order.
The directories are a huge mess and should be properly organized, I find it difficult to find items of interest
Seem most of you are missing the points I've made often and covered again here.
Just got here
Enjoy your stay.
Woke the other hidden sections more visable and also bring back all the ds rom dumps ;-; aside from that its great!!!! The grey on the site could be a shade darker
Fuck your roms!!
The only thing that really needs improvement on the site is the functionality offered to logged-in users. As it stands, there's nearly no motivation to log in, as you can accomplish nearly everything a logged-in user can without an account.
This is going to need clarification, we don't offer user accounts on our site.
go commercial
Don't be soft.
Like to see the # of files/size summaries return in working order like before.
Me too.
Have better ways of showing how your average or even "non-average" user can contribute.
The main reason we don't do this is because 9/10 the things we're offered we either already have and choose not to host or because it's content that doesn't fit on our site and would likely either be more at home at archive.org or simply pointless to host because of it's wide availability elsewhere.
gib rom
Here you go.
Allow paid SFTP / SFTPS access. Provide a tiered service so that people who donate at least $100 could gain access.
Why? Just to offer another protocol? All of our primary data is open to everyone, http(s) has zero barrier to entry. We're not going to start charging people for such forms of access.
The site is fantastic keep up the good work!
<3
I couldn’t say, everything has been smooth and no issues have occurred on my side
<3
More information about download limitations on the site (cloudflare). Potentially more feedback on the donor level required to view specific data, like an error on the site saying you need donor 3 to view a specific set of data. Obviously the Discord has this, but sometimes that is a bit inconvenient.
There's nothing on the primary site that needs any authentication or donor level to download. However on videovault anything on the collections info page requires lvl3 to access, maybe we should note that on the page. Aside from that data that requires levels above what you have just isn't listed.
Update existing folders. For instance, the switch NSP folder hasn’t been updated since it was first put up.
We're not going to do this, we don't care for current gen rom content in the slightest.
Try to make more money you idiots.
We're fine as we are, we're not interested in profit and only follow wider community direction when it comes to raising funds to buy hardware to better the speed of our services. We're currently fairly happy with our operating speeds and 9/10 those who complain are those who haven't contributed and have zero right to complain when downloading content for free.
More software from pre 2000 hardware, please.
archive.org
Some downloads tend to disappear overtime, like the BetaArchive stuff recently uploaded.
We had a news post about this, this was due to hardware failure. The data is safe and will return sometime down the line. However sometimes we just remove content we no longer want to or feel the need to host.
Readding removed roms(PS2, PSP, WII...)
Still there...
All the spin off material is cool but confusing, I'd personally prefer everything in one spot
Every file in a single directory, do it!! Sure.
There were a few more I may address in a comment but I think this is a good chunk of things covered for now.

What is and what is not Growth Hacking - with 100 examples.

There was a thread on here earlier today that made a pretty sub par explanation of what growth hacking was. Additionally I constantly see people talking about "growth hacking" techniques, which are really nothing more than "marketing."
Last week I wrote a post on inbound.org where I listed out some of the growth hacks I had thought of, like making a wordpress plugin for freelance consultants to accept leads via their website.
I want to get Reddit's thoughts on what is and what not considered growth hacking - I like to look at thing that are little grey in terms of examples, to see the a trend in which bucket people put them in.
Edit: Reddit - I'm not a marketing expert - I want to see what you think about these, and in your opinions which I got right and which I got wrong. I'd also love to see what has worked for you. Also - sorry for the formatting here...
I went through this list of 100 "Growth Hacks" from Search Engine Journal and i'm going to attempt to categorize them as either Growth Hacks or M for marketing (or maybe's)
Reddit please correct me as you do so well - and add other examples.
Neither - 1. Launch on a Tuesday Almost ALL websites see a dip in traffic on the weekend. Friday’s get lost in the weekend excitement as well. Monday’s are catch-up days for most. Tuesdays allow you to capture most of the week. This is why most music artists release their work on Tuesdays as well.
M - 2. SlideShare Commenting Get noticed by commenting on SlideShare presentations. Go ahead…try it, it works like a charm!
M -3. Amazon Book Reviewing and Commenting
If there are books published in your niche on Amazon and you’ve read them, start reviewing them. If there aren’t any books…well then, write one!
M - 4. Sign-up Functionality that Stays at the Top Use a hello bar style fixed position sign-up form.
Maybe -5. Add Exit Intent to the Website This is more common on blogs, but works just as effectively on your main marketing site.
It doesn’t have to be an offer for your product. It could just be a survey or a giveaway in order to capture their email address. Use an autoresponder to convert them from there.
Maybe - 6. Submit the App to Award Sites Maybe your app looks great. Maybe you had a cool explaineteaser video done. Submitting them to award sites can give you recognition, awareness, and links!
M - 7. Use the Thank You Page When someone does sign up to your blog, take them to a killer “Thank You” page that references the app with screenshots to highlight the benefits.
Maybe - 8. Wavelength by MailChimp This handy tool lets you find similar email blasts to yours.
This could be fodder for potential customers, or you could try building partnerships this way.
M - 9. Startup App Directories I have compiled a list of over 100 startup directory websites in this blog post.
Maybe - 10. Pay for Triberr Influencers If there is a little room in the budget, paying for influencers to push your app through Triberr can help.
M - 11. Viral Content Buzz and Just Retweet Share other content and earn credits on Viral Content Buzz and JustRetweet. Then offer those credits for others to retweet your Twitter posts.
M - 12. Virtual Assistants Use oDesk and hire a low-cost virtual assistant to go to the websites of your ideal customers and fill out web forms and collect/send emails. Elance and Freelancer work as well.
Warning: This is a little spammy, so make sure the messages are targeted and personalized.
Marketing, if anything- 13. Put “>>” at the End of Your Call-to-Action Buttons A really great breakdown of some CTA tests can be found here.
Potential growth hack - 14. Tweet Embeds of Social Proof HubSpot put together a great walk through of this technique.
Potential growth hack - 15. Require Shares for Your Best Content If you have a piece of high quality content that has proven to be popular and frequently read, use Pay With A Tweet (or something similar) to require people to share it in order to access it.
I did this with great success on the web app directories link in #9. Because of the shares, the articles ended up getting posted to Hacker News and I received thousands of visitors.
M - a good way to grab initial customers (I'm doing this but with Email hunter) 16. SellHack for LinkedIn
Find hidden email addresses on LinkedIn with the SellHack browser extension prospecting tool.
Growth hack - 17. LinkedIn Group Owners Send exclusive offers to LinkedIn Group owners (active/engaged ones only).
M - 18. LinkedIn Group Blog Promotion Join groups on LinkedIn (you can join up to 50) in your niche. When you write blog posts on your website, be sure to use a social sharing plugin to promote to your groups.
M - 19. Old Tools That No Longer Exist Search for blogs about products in your space. If there are products listed that don’t exist anymore, email the author telling them that X product no longer exists. Suggest replacing X product with your product and provide a brief description and link, or at least try getting your product added to the list.
Marketing - although finding a unique way to get in front of key influencers is likely growth hacking. 20. Discounts to Influencers Find influencers in your niche and offer them heavy discounts (or even a free account) in exchange for some promotion.
M - 21. Submit to Social Bookmarking Type Sites Submit your blogs to StumbleUpon, Reddit, Growthhackers, HackerNews, Inbound.org, BizSugar, etc.
Just make sure your content is relevant to whatever community you submit your content to.
M - 22. SnapGuide and Guides.co Post How-To’s to SnapGuides and Guides.co
GH? - 23. Email News Publishers for Your Industry Use this handy little tool to scrap Google News API.
Then, find a virtual assistant (through Mechanical Turk or oDesk) to find the author name and email for all the authors who have covered your niche. You now have a solid list of publishers to contact about covering your business.
M - 24. Ad Placement/Sponsorships Get banner ads placed on key blogs or websites where your users visit. Especially helpful if there aren’t other competing ads.
M - 25. Upload Training Videos to Lynda Upload your training videos to Lynda, an online collections of training videos.
M - 26. Reach Out to Other Guest Bloggers Find people who contribute guest blogs and ask them to contribute a piece to your blog. You may have to pay them if you are starting out as there isn’t anything in it for them if you have a small audience.
Start by finding people who already contribute to other websites in your niche.
M - 27. Leverage Your Existing Providers If you use tools and they also service your target market, try getting a guest blog on their website. Since you are a paying customer, this will help increase your chances.
M - 28. LaunchBit You need a $1,000 per month budget to use this, but you can get your app featured in other company’s email blasts with LaunchBit
GH ? 29. HARO Use HARO for press opportunities.
You can respond to any press inquiries in your industry. You can get ad placement and be talked about before the list of press inquiries. Use a tool like Bitesize PR to automate this process for you!
M - 30. Sponsored Content Use Izea to get links in content or sponsor posts
Neither - 31. Fiverr Promotion For $5 you can get someone with thousands of followers to tweet your content or do other forms of promotion. Just make sure their audience is who you are trying to appeal to. There are lots of fake and crap accounts on here so choose wisely.
Neither - 32. Pay for Reviews You can use SponsoredReviews to get paid reviews of your app. Be sure you check the quality of the websites who try to bid on your opportunity. I’ve found that most are rather spammy. Be sure all reviews follow FTC guidelines for disclosure as well.
Maybe - 33. Showoff Your PR or Customers If you get a write-up or mentioned from key news sources, be sure to feature their logo on your website. I’ll be featuring Search Engine Journal now!
Marketing- 34. Pop-ups Use OptinMonster, or other pop-up solutions, to provide attention getting calls to action for your app or your email newsletter. (disclosure: SEJ uses OptinMonster and loves it)
Maybe depending on what you're doing - status quo PR is not growth hacking 35. Get PR Use a service like PRserve or Publicize or PRLeads to try and get PR. DIY options like PressFriendly or JustReachOut can help as well.
M - 36. Discounts for Beta Testers Give half off or some other deep lifetime discount to beta testers who helped you validate your model.
I'll have to check this out - possible GH - 37. Social Listening Use Colibri.io to monitor conversations about your industry/product and jump into the conversation.
Possibly GH but really just content marketing. If they are extremely helpful and viral, could be GH - 38. Create Templates Use free templates (like BidSketch does here) in exchange for an email. Then use autoresponders and email marketing to upsell them.
If the extension is actually useful for something, not just to "go to your website" yes a great example of a GH. 39. Chrome Webstore Create a Chrome extension to open your web app when opening the browser. Costs just $5.
BaseCRM did this and got over 30,000 downloads!
GH? 40. Daily Deal Sites If you have an app, you can use sites like:
AppSumo Rewardli MightyDeals
M - 41. Roundups If people put together roundups (whether in blogs or email newsletters) in your industry, reach out to them to try and get your app, blog, etc featured in the roundup.
? 42. Highlight User Onboarding Assuming you have a killer onboarding process (which is part of the activation growth hacks) then you can submit it to UserOnboarding to try and get it featured there.
M - 43. Guest Blog Find blogs that your target customer visits and ask them if you can submit a blog post. Make sure it’s your best and don’t self promote. You’ll get a link to your app in your byline at the end of the post.
For every one blog you post on your own blog, try and write another one as a guest a blog. Some sites like Business2Community and Social Media Today also syndicate content from other bloggers. Submit your blog’s RSS feed to apply.
M - 44. Use Paid Ads to Promote Your Press If you are able to land coverage in news outlets, or get a sweet review of your tool posted somewhere…use paid ads to promote THOSE pieces of content. Having a third party promote your app is much better than you trying to self promote.
M - 45. Conversion and A/B Testing You should always be testing. Using tools like Optimizely or Visual Website Optimizer can help you perform split tests.
Use a tool like CrazyEgg or Inspectlet to see where visitors are clicking (or not clicking).
M - 46. Ask for Beta Users on Social Use your social profiles to ask for beta users. Post in LinkedIn groups, Google+ communities, Facebook groups, etc. Don’t advertise…ask for help.
Growth hack - letters or custom gifts as well. - 47. Handwritten Notes Send handwritten letters to key accounts / influencers. Actual handwritten letters are extremely rare these days so you will stand out.
M - 48. Blog Commenting If you spend time reading blogs in your niche (you should!), leave thoughtful/relevant blog comments.
Use the website/url field to link to your app.
Bonus tip: In the “Name” field use ‘your name @ company’ for more brand awareness for those that don’t click the link.
I'm not going to say marketing on these anymore.. just going to comment otherwise
M - 49. Utilize an FAQ Page Create a separate page on your website specifically for FAQ’s.
Position questions around your key selling points. Monitor search queries to your site and build content specific to those queries. Make note of actual issues or questions your customers are having and address them to lessen support requests.
Maybe - 50. Ask Users to Take Pics w/Your Product If you have some enthusiastic customers, ask them to take pictures with your product and have them share it on their social feeds.
You can then use this social proof on your website!
  1. More Engaging Signup/Login Page Show a picture of your app in the background. Make sure it is faded so it doesn’t interfere, but show off the product.
  2. Use Google Hangouts/Skype for Support Use software your customers are familiar with to provide support. This builds a stronger relationship with your customers and free trial users and allows you to collect live feedback.
You can also use these technologies for a more streamlined onboarding of new users early on.
  1. Downsell at Signup Maybe you have potential users who aren’t ready to commit just yet. Try to offer them something else. Maybe an ebook or training course? A very limited version of your product? You can then try upselling to them later.
  2. Host Your Videos on Wistia By hosting your videos on Wistia when someone embeds your videos on their site, you get the link and SEO juice (versus YouTube). For this reason, you should also put a link at the beginning of your video descriptions.
Maybe GH - if you can somehow add value to them - 55. Converse with Authors not Publishers Find the authors of blogs or news articles and converse with them directly. This greatly improves your chances of getting coverage with the publisher or potentially being introduced to key third parties.
  1. Communicate Communicate as much and as early as possible (live chat, personal emails, etc). By communicating directly with new users, you greatly increase your odds of them converting to a paid user. This is especially true when it comes to free trial users.
  2. Interview Users Feature user stories on your blog and in your emails. This works even better if you can tie in how they are utilizing your product successfully.
  3. Repurpose Content Convert blog posts into presentations, infographics, etc. Transcribe video and audio. Take sections of blog posts and spin them off on their own.
Maybe - 59. Feature Key Figures in Your Niche This could be a joint webinar, or maybe just advice that is applicable to your user base that you are sharing.
Maybe - 60. Training Courses Put up training courses within your niche on sites like Udemy or SkillShare. You can choose to charge for the course to add a new revenue channel or give it away to have more people learn about your product.
Broad but maybe - 61. Third Party Partnerships Look for products in your industry that do not compete and try to integrate with them.
Joint ventures Joint webinars Exchange guest blogs
Maybe - 62. Interview Influencers Interview influencers and then do a write-up. Link to them within the write-up and let them know when it’s published. They like to demonstrate their expertise and they’ll be promoting you while doing so.
Not a GH but necessary early on - 63. Cold Emailing Send 10 to 20 emails per day to your targeted prospects with a personal email. It isn’t scalable, but that’s ok early on. Spend the time to find their name, reference their business/website, etc.
Maybe - 64. Case Studies for Different User Types If you have multiple user types or subsets of users then try showcasing each of them with their own case studies.
  1. Siphon Competitor Links If you feel you have a better product and you have some courage – reach out and ask them to link to you instead! This is especially helpful if the competing product is no longer being sold or looked after.
Growth Hack - 66. Marketplace Integrations with Other Apps Integrate with well known products that will expand your reach to their userbase. Integrate with CRM’s, billing systems, popular tools like Evernote, etc.
Sometimes you can get featured in their marketplace, so ask them what you need to do to make that happen.
  1. Make Signing Up Easy Just require an email (that will be their username) and one password input initially. Don’t have them confirm the password, don’t ask for an email AND a username (email can be the username). Make it as quick and painless as possible.
  2. Auto Login After Signup Don’t require a confirmation and instead just get them right into your product.
Maybe GH but Important - get personal, not automated - 69. Send Personal Email Within 24 hours (or even right away), send them a personalized email asking them specifically why they signed up. What made them pull the trigger? This is extremely important data as you want to make sure that your product is delivering what your marketing messages are promising.
Ideally, with your analytics software you can save the note to their user profile. This is important so you can ask them why they canceled or chose not to continue and compare those answers.
Early on you can do this manually, and look to automate this (so long as it shows from you) later.
Growth hack - 70. Send Gifts Send new users real gifts. Even better if the gift helps them to get more out of your product. I like to give ecards.
Growth hack - 71. Engage Influencers Who Signup Track influencers using IFTTT. Have a script check their email address, track their Klout score. Then go and follow them, tweet and comment where possible.
You always want to be connected with the influencers who are using your app or product.
Maybe - 72. Tweet or Mention New Users Tag new users (or one’s with the biggest following if there are lots) in tweets and on Google+ after they sign up and thank them for the signup.
Maybe - 73 Map Out Your Email Sequence Have your drip campaign in place before you launch. You need to walk users through your product when they are free trial customers.
Add a win back sequence after 60 days (and/or 6 months) after a user cancels. Let them know you’ve added new features.
  1. Extended Free Trials If a free trial user doesn’t convert, send them an email and let them know you’ve added X number of days to their free trial. Be sure you use this email to guide through getting the most out of your product.
  2. Personal Outreach as a Followup Beyond your initial personal email asking why they signed up, continue the conversation (or try and start it again) by asking them to help spread the word and to give you feedback.
Give them your cell phone #. They will feel special and will be willing to help you out if you show this personalized effort, while simultaneously being more engaged with your product.
  1. Find Your “Aha” Moment This will take months of evaluating your analytics to find that one element that leads to the highest activation rate. Once you have found what it is, focus on guiding your free trial users to that point as quickly as possible.
For example:
For Facebook, it’s having 10 friends in 7 days For Twitter, it’s following 30 people.
  1. Automated Webinars Use StealthSeminar to record a webinar once, but have it replay at designated times to give the feeling of a live webinar.
  2. Great Onboarding Experience Don’t leave any questions or doubts about how to use your product. Provide a rich onboarding experience, then follow that up with an email drip that walks them through using your app to its fullest capabilities.
  3. Spruce Up the Boring Pages Use log in pages, log out pages, forgot password pages, etc to expand on in-app features, testimonials, and maybe even little easter eggs.
  4. Report on Positive Statistics You don’t want users to have a negative feeling when they seen an email from you, so report on positive statistics first and foremost, then the negative things can be aftebelow that and not stand out as much.
  5. Email, Email, Email Don’t be worried about “spamming” your users. If you are able to provide value to them they will want more of it. Here are some examples of companies using email to the max:
You’ve been outbid (eBay) Year in Review, or Group Discussions, or Connection Requests (LinkedIn) New friend/follower (Facebook/TwitteGoogle+)
Growth Hack maybe - but a note alone isn't it - but something unique/remarkable that they feel is worthy of sharing on social media, blogging ect. Ex: a big customer signs up and you find that he likes wine, send a nice bottle. Or if he traveled recently to X country, something from that country - you get the gist. Something out of the box.
82. Customer Thank You Cards Send hand written notes to customers thanking them for being a valued customer.
You could set this up where you get an alert once they hit a certain revenue earning and then you send it to them.
  1. User Exclusives Send users exclusive content that no one else gets. Provide a member forum, tools, webinars, hangouts, gifts, etc.
  2. Credit Card Expiration Notices Don’t let credit cards expire. Send email reminders about the value they get and what they risk losing if they don’t update their credit card details. You can use a service like Churn Buster.
Growth hack - 85. Leaderboards Think of ways to showcase your users in a leaderboard format. Give awards to most active users.
Growth hack - 86. Gamify Gamify elements within your product/app for discovery. For example, as users use certain features it may unlock a badge. They can then show off the badges to other users.
  1. Inform Users What They Missed When users log back in, have a message that informs them of new things going on with the app or suggest things they should do.
Growth hack - 88. Double Loop Referral Program Dropbox made this technique popular by rewarding you with more storage when you refer someone, while at the same time giving that new referred user more storage as well.
The genius in this particular example is that it doesn’t cost them any revenue. Whereas most double loop referral programs offer to give users a discount and then give a discount to the new referred users. This is still a good option, but does your product/app offer something else that users will find of value?
Growth hack - 89. In-App Sharing Allow users to share milestone achievements or something they can be proud of and will want to share.
Growth hack - 90. Two Way Sharing Does your app/product facilitate communication in any way between two parties? If not, is it possible/does it make sense for you to add this functionality?
Maybe - 91. Ask for Shares in Your Application Add a message to the top of the interface to encourage social shares.
“Help us spread the word by tweeting this message.” If you’ve built up a relationship with your user base and they like and trust you, they will be much more willing to help you.
  1. Affiliate / Referral Program Use systems like HasOffers, GetAmbassador, or ReferralPop to track everything.
Keep affiliates engaged with email drips and regular communication.
You will want to have product/market fit first, and you will want to make sure you have optimized the onboarding experience before rolling out a program like this.
  1. Use Links in Your Email Signature I use WiseStamp and include social media links, as well as a call out to the latest blog post from our RSS feed.
  2. Ask for Shares in ALL Emails On ALL email correspondence, ask for tweets/shares. This includes your email drips and onboarding type emails as well as transactional emails (receipts, forgotten passwords, etc).
  3. Downsell at Cancelation When a user goes to cancel, offer to keep/store data or push them toward a lower tier instead.
If a user has been a customer for X number of months, offer a big discount (50% or so) to stay on their current plan. Make sure it’s understood this is a one-time offer and only because they met certain criteria.
  1. Verified Program Adwords offers a verified program for agencies who pass their test/budget spending requirement.
This sort of verified program works really well if you work with consultants, business coaches, freelancers, marketers, etc.
  1. “At Risk” Tagging Within your analytics (KISSmetrics, MixPanel, Trak.io), you will be able to find obvious patterns from users who cancel. It could be something as simple as “have’t logged in for 2 weeks.” These should get an “At Risk” designation and be flagged in your system for immediate follow-up. You need to re-engage them.
  2. Exit Survey Make money from website visitors who leave by knowing why they left.
Ask why they weren’t interested and what they were looking for. Use this data to improve your marketing and/or your app with the feedback. Let them know you can follow up with them in the future as the product evolves to meet their needs.
  1. Add Professional or Concierge Services Offer to provide services such as helping them get setup/integrated, contract work, complimentary services, etc to add revenue.
  2. Annual Payments Give customers the option to pay with annual payments. Reward them with X% off or # of months free. This gives you a large sum of cash upfront which can be put back into marketing.

17 Affiliate Marketing terms you need to know

Learning affiliate marketing terms is a great place to start if you’re looking to get started as an affiliate marketer.
Like any job or business, knowing the terminology is key to being successful. If you can’t understand or speak the language then you are going to have a hard time learning what you need to be successful.
I’ve compiled this ever growing list of affiliate marketing terms to help you get started.

An affiliate directory is a categorized listing of affiliate programs. There are many out there and you can build one too if you want.

Affiliate Fraud is bogus or fraudulent activity generated by an affiliate in an attempt to generate illegitimate, unearned revenue. This is a very dangerous thing to do if you are an affiliate. If you get banned, your earning potential is over. Don’t do it.
4) Affiliate Manager
An Affiliate Manager is a person responsible for managing an online affiliate program for an affiliate merchant. Some affiliate programs, especially the good ones, have a manager to help affiliates get started and to create and manage launches and promotions.

Cloaking is the tactic of hiding affiliate tracking code in links. Hiding affiliate tracking in a link is an acceptable and widely used practice.
10) Contextual Link
A contextual link refers to a text link placed within your website or blog content versus a link that is placed in the sidebar as a more traditional advertisement.

Commissions are the money you get for referring a customer to a merchant. It is the predefined money or fee a merchant pays an affiliate for generating a desired outcome for the merchant.
12) Exclusivity
Exclusivity is a contract term in which one party grants another party sole rights with regard to a particular business function.
13) Payment threshold
A payment threshold is an accumulated commission an affiliate must earn to trigger payment from an affiliate program. Some merchants don’t have a payment threshold and pay right away while others may use $100, $200 or even more depending on the products
14) Return days
Return days are the number of days an affiliate can earn commission on a conversion (sale or lead) by a referred visitor.
15) Super affiliate
A Super Affiliate is a rock start affiliate but is also an affiliate that builds a team of other affiliates. Super Affiliates can also get paid a percentage of the commissions that the affiliates under them generate.

Meta-Romanov resubmission

With the planned date of the trigger event coming soon (August 12) I wanted to resubmit Meta-Romanov so he can be tweaked and approved before D-Day.

Romanov Changelog:

BASIC BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Name: Lieutenant Mikhail Romanov
Age: 85 (physically 25 due to time travel shenanigans)
Appearance: Basic faceclaim. 5’10” ~205 lbs
Mentality/Personality: Strong, silent type. Always calculating, Romanov is truly the brains in the operation. He doesn’t say much, but when he speaks, his word is law. Despite this, he is a lot more open around his friends and his significant other.
Background: One of the best strategists in the Soviet Union, Romanov was assigned to Alfa Squad as part of a pilot program to help Spetsnaz units operate more independently from normal combat units. Adding an additional layer of strategy to the squad, Romanov is a vital asset to the team. Following an incident in Peruvian ruins in 1957, he, along with his squad, crashed into Platinum Bay around February or so and have been adjusting to modern life ever since. Having found a place in this new world, he serves as spotter for Lebedjev's truck racing team and is currently in a relationship with the love of his life, Maria Tenhearn. An unexpected incident at {plot element discussed with mods and okayed} resulted in him blacking out, remaining incapacitated for almost a week before finally coming to in his new state.
Alignment: Neutral Good
Affiliation/Reputation: No longer officially affiliated with any organizations or countries of the past, though he proudly shows his Soviet pride where applicable. Known around town as a generally nice guy.
Resources: Salary from job, spare funding from Lebedjev's bank account (if needed)
Equipment/Weaponry: Custom built laser-AK made by Lizzix Silverhammer. Still has old AK-47 and bayonet. Sidearm is his trusty Makarov PM.

POWERS AND SKILLS

Intended Tier: Beta?
Power One: Semi-Immortality
  • Maintaining his youthful appearance, Romanov will never age another day in his life. Growing older but not up, he can live forever, but is still able to be harmed/killed by normal means.
Power Two: Garnet Mimicry
  • Romanov's main power. Can convert his entire body into pure crystal. Appears identical to garnet and is about 2.5 times harder. Immediately reverts back to standard human form if crystal breaks. Can not change back to crystal for 48 hours.
Power Three: Mark of the Strategist
  • Maintains all "quirks" from Untiered status. (Original character sheet for reference.)
Skills and Specialisations: Fluent in English and Russian. Pretty good at chess. Decent with a rifle and pistol.

* Weakness: Has been known to overthink situations. May get him stuck in “sitting duck” scenarios if he isn’t careful.

'ATTRIBUTES'

Strength: Slightly above average when not in crystal form, 800 lbs or so when in crystal form.
Agility: Able to run at the speed of an average soldier, but for slightly longer periods of time.
Intelligence/Wisdom: Highly intelligent, he always thinks through several possible outcomes before reaching a final decision. His wisdom is about average, but is made up for by the advanced wisdom of other squadmates and of other associates.
Combat Training: Basic commando training from Soviet Army
Defense/Recovery: Slightly above average
Offense/Danger: Somewhat threatening in crystal form, but usually same as normal human

Meta-Romanov concept

Recently had a few ideas running through my head for metahuman versions of some of the "younger" members of Alfa Squad (read: Romanov, Gagarin, Malashenko) and decided to start with the first of the trio. A change as major as this is probably going to need some serious working, which is why I want to submit and perfect NOW before my planned "trigger event" shortly before his birthday. Let's get this show on the road, shall we?

Tier Two Affiliates Makes You Money

People don't recognize how powerful these links really are? Businesses that allow two tier advertising are looking for people with a little bit of advertising background that can deliver their message to others looking to market a specific product. Once that two tier ad goes out, there could be thousands that will promote it, that's why they offer these links, the person that markets these usually make a ton of money, though it might not be right away. The fact of the matter is those 2 tier links that your advertising will be there forever and if you can SEO those somehow in a blog post just think about how many people will see it? You won't make money by placing these ads in directories, that's a waste of time. You should promote them in seperate blog postings that are focused on that business or one of their products. People make thousands of dollars this way, it often gets lost in the shuffle on how affiliates make money but don't lose sight of it because it's like having a resiidual income. You don't have to be a wizard or a professional to make this kind of money, you just have to be smart and know where to market. People claim they make millions as an affiliate, I'm here to tell you that's a crock, it just doesn't happen that way. If it looks to good to be true it usually is, that being said roughly 2% of businesses that offer tier two banners or text links make 10x more then normal companies that only offer a few banners. We were Commission Junction affiliates for a number of years, we did OK but nothing to write home about, matter of fact when we did our taxes at the end of the year and we looked at what we made there we said why are we even bothering? CJ is a complete waste of time, it's not worth the bother to promote any of those businesses. The concept of 2 tier affiliates were brought to our attention by someone on a business forum who didn't want to give away all his secrets but gave us a general idea on where to look and how to do it, the post within the forum did not reach a lot of people but we have some interest and we put the formula to work. We understood the idea but couldn't follow the formula, well after a few months of searching we located only the best tier two affiliates on the planet, and trust me it took up a lot of our time to discover these. Now because it tool so long, we didn't do much thinking on how we were going to advertise, we really just winged it and started posting to junky business groups on Facebook and Twitter. I had no real clue on how to market these, well we spent a few bucks on social media ads trust me it wasn't much less then 20.00 and little did we know this was a untapped market, we had close to 3000 people that understood this concept and took our tier 2 links to another level! I won't tell you the money we made because that's unfair to you, let's just say it was the most we've made in a 30 day stretch.
 Now it continues to grow by the day, the reason being is because once you have a person that grabs your links they do the same thing, eventually it gets to someone that places the businesses banner on their site and they make money so you make money. When you advertise that link others will also and it's like money in the bank, when we say this is a untapped market we are not kidding you. We have listed over 100 tier two businesses you can sign up with instantly, do yourself a favor and get signed up and start writing about this untapped market, start writing articles, adding blog posts and place a few banners on your sites. Let me explain the formula again in case you didn't understand it the first time. When you sign up for these tier two affiliates you then advertise them on your own, when someone sees a business they would like to advertise for they in turn sign up as a regular affiliate and add those banners to their site-whenever they make money you make money as well, now they won't be the only ones that do this (Do You See It Now) over time more and more people will do the exact same thing, you only have to do this once! Though the more places you advertise these sort of links the better you will be down the road. This really is a untalked about niche that spreads quickly, you will be surprised on how you do. This can be done by anyone by the way. We have put the list in alphabetical order so you can see the business, what they offer as far as commissions go, and when you will get paid. It's a simple formula that works everytime.

to explain how you can start recruiting Sub-Affiliate’s by simply locating the Super-Affiliate’s within your Niche market. First… lets define what a ‘2 Tier’ affiliate program is. A ‘2 Tier’ affiliate program is simply a program that is designed to work on a 2 tier payment structure. And what I A two tier affiliate program is an affiliate model that allows you to make commissions not only on your own sales but the sales from others (your sub-affiliates) that you refer to the program. A typical two tier affiliate structure would look something like this: FriendFinder.com: Earnings: $1-$2 per lead, $30 per order Tiers: 2 Method of pay: Check Pay date: Twice a month Datafeed: Min payout: $50 Description: Start earning money from a personals network of 16 different sites that caters to all kinds of people, interests, and desires. With FriendFinder.com's affiliate program, you can earn anywhere from $1 to $2 per free membership signup lead, 100% Information, Listings and advice on Two-Tier affiliate programs. Affiliate programs are also called associate, reseller, and partner programs. Two Tier affiliate programs reward affiliates in two ways: you are paid for your own sales plus a percentage of the sales made by webmasters that you referred into the program. URL's containing an affiliate ID will not be accepted, however it is When new affiliate marketers learn about two tier affiliate programs they usually get very excited. After all, it sounds like all you have to do is find a good tiered affiliate program to promote to a small army of other affiliates and then sit back on the beach while they pad your bank account with sub-affiliate commissions every day.
