“Do what you love and you will never

work a day in your life.”


I love this quote as it holds true for me. After being in Internet Marketing for 16 years now I still sleep with my phone within reach in case I want to get up in the middle of the night to check stats or answer a Skype from one of our far east clients. Every morning I wake up excited to see what the day would bring in the form of new opportunities. If you are not excited about what you are doing find out what does excite you and the money will follow. Life is too short to be unhappy.


The mobile free-for-all is OVER!


For the past few years Affiliates and Advertisers have been able to get away with very aggressive ad practices. As of April 15, 2014 all that has changed. Google Play has put a ZERO TOLERANCE rule in effect.

The policy, in its entirety, can be found by clicking here

The specific line item that affects all Publishers and Advertisers reads:

App Promotion 
Apps published on Google Play may not directly or indirectly engage in or benefit from the following behavior:

  • Promotion via deceptive ads on websites, apps or other properties, including simulated system, service, or app notifications or alerts.
  • Promotion or install tactics which cause redirection to Google Play or the download of the app without informed user action.
  • Unsolicited promotion via SMS services.


Many of our top mobile advertisers including Clean master (100,000,000 installs) have made major changes to adapt to the new rule.


Mailer Tips!

Major Change To Yahoo delivery

Deliverability


Within the last week, Yahoo made a bold move in updating their DMARC policy setting to “p=reject.” Therefore, mail containing a Yahoo from address is no longer considered legitimate if it does not contain an authentication signature, or if it did not come from properly identified Yahoo infrastructure.

Bottom line: Do not use a “@yahoo.com”, “@gmail.com” or “@hotmail.com”
or other free email provider address to send your emails.
Instead, set up and send from your own domain.

When it’s time to say farewell…


Every new business idea when first thought of is exciting, but at some point if it’s not making money or working you need to know when it’s time to say goodbye. No one is right 100% of the time, and many times “hanging on” not only drains you mentally and financially, but it also does not allow you to look at and discover new opportunities. I have had some failed opportunities over the years. it’s ok to fail! As long as you learn from your mistakes and not repeat them. Google ventures has failed investments…everyone does, they just know when it is time to move on. Life is a journey and if you “won” with every idea then life would not be much fun, would it?
