As much as we might think that our laptops and desktops are still our primary computing devices, it has become abundantly clear that mobile is a huge trend that simply cannot be ignored. Many people spend far more times on their smartphones than sitting in front of their PCs and this represents a huge opportunity for Internet marketers too.
Affiliate networks are hardly anything new, but at least one thing that makes Mobidea different from the rest is its dedication to mobile. As we go through today’s review, we’ll unearth several more features that distinguish Mobidea from other affiliate networks.
Revenue Speaks Louder than Words
Let’s be honest. The primary reason why you may be interested in affiliate marketing in the first place is to make money. It doesn’t matter how “cool” those banners look or how “interesting” those offers might be if they don’t convert and put cash in your pocket. Mobidea clearly recognizes this.
From and center on the homepage is the declaration that revenue speaks louder than words. With Mobidea, you can expect to see a good range of premium offers that generally fall into one of two groups. There are CPA offers that typically convert on sign-up and there are CPI offers that convert on app installation.
A big key here is that there is no guesswork and no ambiguity about commission rates. You will earn a flat 80% revenue share across the board. Most other networks are nowhere near as transparent as Mobidea in this regard. The highest commission rates are somewhere in the $40 range.
And if you want to learn more about how to make even more money with affiliate marketing, they’re ready to support you through Mobidea Academy and its growing library of useful resources and information.
Into the Affiliate Dashboard
The main dashboard reveals a monthly summary with your number of signups and revenue to date. There’s a feed with the latest news on the right, core navigation to the left, and live chat support ready to roll in the lower corner.
When you hover over the left side of the screen, the main menu flies out to reveal options to access your reports, smart tools, offers, cashier, and account, as well as contact information for support, plus links to frequently asked questions, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
The reports section is similarly modern in its aesthetic. You can filter down to view stats based on period, offers, countries, operators, operating systems and more, really helping you narrow down where you have the best opportunities for profit.
The Mobile-Focused Offer Directory
As mentioned, Mobidea is an affiliate network that is wholly dedicated to the mobile space. As a result, the offers typically involve the installation of a mobile app or the subscription to some sort of mobile service.
Even if you don’t have an account with Mobidea just yet, you can preview the offer directory to get a real sense of what you can expect. As of this writing, there are over 900 offers in all, including some with adult content. It really depends on the kind of traffic you have and are trying to monetize, though it appears that the adult content is producing some of the highest eCPMs in the network.
The offer listing can be filtered based on such criteria as country and OS. You’ll also notice that the offer listing makes specific mention of compatible wireless carriers. You can also sort the listing based on top payouts (as much as $40) and top eCPM (currently as high as $700+).
While each offer listing will show you the conversion requirement, provide you with screenshots, and allow you to view the associated banners, you will not be able to promote any offer until you apply for it directly. There’s not much to this aside from telling Mobidea (and presumably the advertiser) about your traffic sources.
Make More Money with Smartlink
One great feature that should help simplify the monetization process for you is called Smartlink. It will auto-optimize your traffic with deep learning algorithms.
This is perfect for affiliates who don’t want to check up on each and every offer as they become available. It’s easy to miss out on an offer that is particularly lucrative for your vertical, niche and audience, so Smartlink eliminates the guesswork. As of this writing, you can expect “mainstream” traffic with Smartlink to generate up to $24.37 eCPM.
More advanced settings here let you add postback URLs for cookieless tracking, enable/disable APK offers, and enable/disable auto-download offers, among other options.
That’s a Good Idea
Have you ever had the unfortunate experience of wanting to cash out your affiliate account but you’re nowhere near the end of the month and you don’t want to wait for a 30-day waiting period. Good news. Mobidea will pay on demand at any time. Payments can be issued in less than week to your choice of Paxum, Payza, Payonner, PayPal or wire transfer, so long as you meet the minimum threshold of 100 Euro.
When you’re ready to get started, sign up for an account with Mobidea. You can fill out the short form or you sign up using Google or Facebook.
