Places And Tips On How To Run Whitehat Offers In 2019

In our world Artificial Intelligence (AI) is getting serious, and companies like Facebook and Google are investing hundreds of millions to make it happen. It is not wise to do blackhat marketing anymore.

If you are an affiliate, you know what I am talking about. Sending bot traffic, submitting fake email addresses to lead generation forms and promote aggressive pops, etc. These methods are dying and have no future whatsoever.

Ok, so what should you focus on?

Whitehat affiliate marketing such as clean lead generation offers. My readers usually ask me, how can we know if it’s whitehat and a clean offer? The answer is simple and I am not kidding; would you tell your parents or partner about it? If yes, go ahead, if no, you got the answer!

The best whitehat offers are lead generation ones. It is an evergreen type of marketing that has always been around and will always be there. As long as there are businesses out there that need new customers, the lead generation offers are a healthy market to jump in.

However, not all lead generations types are whitehat. Affiliate marketers are so sneaky and clever too.

Here are examples of whitehat lead generation offers:

  1. Loans
  2. Auto-Insurance
  3. Life-Insurance
  4. Home Warranties
  5. Spa and Massage
  6. Mortgage
  7. Refinance
  8. Lawyer/Legal
  9. Air Conditioning and Heating

The list goes on and on. Pretty much any business that needs a legitimate lead is a whitehat lead generation.

Greyhat and Blackhat examples:

  1. Adult apps
  2. Porn websites
  3. Sweepstakes like; you won an iPhone!
  4. Get Rich Fast
  5. Magic pill or drink for diet

To make it clearer for you: whitehat is when you tell your leads exactly what they may get from providing their contact details. In contrast, blackhat is when you deceive your leads and provide them fake promises.

Where are the best places to find whitehat lead generations?

  1. Recommended Affiliate Networks

There are tons of affiliate networks that have good lead gen offers, you can do your own research in Google or better at OfferVault. I will mention a few of the legitimate networks that I have dealt with:

  1. A4D
  2. AdCombo
  3. Leadbit
  4. MaxBounty

 

Once you sign up and get accepted in any of the affiliate networks, you will be assigned an affiliate manager.

The best way to start is ping your affiliate manager on Skype and ask them about the whitehat offers they have at the moment (that are performing well).

You do not want to sound too generic or like a newbie to them.

Therefore, you can use a phrase like the following with them:

  1. What are the best lead gen offers that are performing well the last 30 days in the UK?
  2. What are the top 3 insurance offers in USA for May?
  3. What are the top 5 lead gen offers in terms of highest EPC?

EPC stands for Earning Per Click which indicate how much affilaites earn everytime a visitor clicks on the offer link.

  1. Spy Tools

I have used many spy tools, some for whitehat offers and others (guilty) for blackhat stuff. I have found no tool is even close to Adplexity. They have a separate spy tool for the following offers:

  • Mobile
  • Desktop
  • Native
  • E-Commerce
  • Push Notification
  • Carrier

Here is a cool video from Mobidea explaining in details how to use Adplexity.

It is also worth mentioning the following tools:

  1. Conference and forums

If you are crazy about affiliate marketing like me, you’ve got to go to at least one conference. You will make so many connections that will ease your way into affiliate marketing.

The best affiliate marketing conferences and forums (in my opinion) are:

It makes a hell of difference to meet people in person. While many newbie affiliates struggle to get accepted in affiliate networks, in those conferences, affiliate networks are literally begging you to join their platform.

Why? Because someone spends money and time to attend a conference, he/she must be serious, even if they are newbie.

Alternatively, you can join affiliate marketing forums and simply ask for whitehat offers, you will get responses from many people there.

I recommend only STM – Forum ($99/month) and AffLift (Free and paid options) if you are new in the affiliate market world. However, if you know something about affiliate marketing, I recommend the new forum IamAffiliate ($49/month) by IamAttila.

If you do not have money to spend in their monthly subscription fee, check out my affiliate marketing blog. I share everything I learned free of charge.

Ok, now you’ve got some whitehat offers to promote, what next?

You need to drive traffic. I found the best traffic source for lead gen is the giant Facebook.

Why?

Because you can laser target your potential lead like no other platform. Facebook knows so much about us. In fact, Facebook knows more about us than we know about ourselves.

Go ahead and signup in Facebook advertisement platform if you do not have an account already.

Create a business Manager and add account. I will not go into details here because there are thousands of blogs that explain these steps in details.

For example, here is a beginner guide from AdEspresso that will outline to you all important steps you need to take to start your first campaign on Facebook.

And simply start creating campaigns and testing your offers.

I would also strongly recommend you to join the Facebook group Advanced Marketer by Depesh Mandalia, he shares very important tips about Facebook every day.

The one thing I recommend you to do is to have an opt-in page between Facebook and the offer link.

Something like this one:

whitehat affiliate offers

 

You’ve got to capture their email addresses before you send them to the offer so that you can promote them by email later on. Email marketing is very effective and cheap traffic too!

I am surprised that many people do not do that, they simply buy traffic from Facebook for an offer. But what will happen when a visitor doesn’t buy? You’ve lost him forever! So capture that email.

To wrap up:

  • Find a whitehat lead generation that is proven to work
  • Create an opt-in page to capture email addresses and redirect to the offer page
  • Run Facebook campaigns to the opt-in page
  • Email the leads about the offer or similar ones in the same niche
