Want to start doing mobile affiliate marketing this week? Read this entire damn post and you can.
As you may have heard, I’m doing a lot of mobile affiliate marketing now. A few months ago I decided to give it a try – and now the majority of my traffic is mobile. It worked.
Some people think I’m a genius. Well, more like an idiot savant. Because I can’t read a map or name the 50 states, but I can learn new online advertising methods in a few days and make money while I sleep.
The truth is that I’m not really that smart, definitely not a genius. I’m just really good at using online tutorials to teaching myself new things and putting them into practice immediately.
Today I’m going to show you how I learned to do mobile and give you the exact same resources I used so you can do it too.
- The exact tutorials I read
- The exact tools I used
- The exact traffic source I ran on
The best news is it doesn’t take very long, it doesn’t cost very much and you don’t have to buy anything from me.
*There are definitely affiliate links in this post. If that bothers you than please go away from my site. Because I’m basically creating my own competition here and I deserve way more than the small commission (at no additional cost to you) I might get from you signing up.
Here’s how it works.
StackThatMoney.com is the most popular premium affiliate marketing forum there is. A premium forum just means that it is private, and you have to pay to be a member.
Almost every super affiliate you know is there and shares on a regular basis (myself included). There is some insanely detailed info in there.
One of the most epic tutorials ever posted is called “The Mobile Cookbook”. It’s a step-by-step guide written by one of the forum’s most prolific members on how to launch a profitable campaign on Decisive Ad Network.
It’s the exact tutorial I used to setup my first mobile campaign and is part of the reason I’m now 90% mobile.
Many STM users have already used this tutorial to quickly go from $0 to 4-5 figures a day. Myself included.
That being said, let me show you what it looks like.

There Are Three Parts
The tutorial is broken down into 3 parts. You only need to do the first one (The Appetiser) to learn how to launch your first mobile campaign. The other parts just go into deeper detail on how to make landing pages, optimize and theory.
- The Appetiser.
The Appetiser is the simplest way to get into mobile affiliate marketing right now. You’ll use a streamlined system to do the absolute minimum you need to start and optimise a successful campaign. You’ll pick something to advertise, set up banners, and optimise your results into profit.
- The Main Course (Part 1 and 2).
The Main Course incorporates landing pages as well as banners into our mobile campaigns. We also explore some more scaling options, split-testing and using statistical significance calculators, and look at the options available on other mobile ad sources.
- The Banquet
The Banquet covers getting from small successes as an affiliate – around $xx or $xxx per day – to the massive numbers you’ve heard other people report on STM. $5,000 a day, $50,000 a day, even higher – they’re all possible in the fast-growing mobile sector.
Like I said, don’t get wrapped up in Part 2 and 3 yet. All you need is Part 1 to launch and optimize a campaign into profit.
The Tools You’ll Need
- StackThatMoney.com Forum Account.
The StackThatMoney forum membership is $99/month, but with everything you get, access to super affiliates, case studies, a free mobile tracker, ad creatives, landing pages and spy tools – it’s worth every cent.

That’s all you need to get started. There are a few add ons you may need as well. I’ve posted them below.
- Web hosts:
LiquidWeb VPS There is potential for a lot of traffic, so you’ll need a VPS at the very least. LiquidWeb is solid.
Bluehost VPS If you need a cheaper option, go with Bluehost
- Tracking System:
Voluum The tracking system I use. Free up to 100,000 events.
Here’s How To Do It
I recommend you only focus on Part 1 right now. Don’t waste time reading the other parts until you’ve launched Part 1 already. Remember the goal isn’t to read the tutorial. It’s to use the tutorial to launch your mobile campaign as fast as you can.
Too many people try to read and understand everything before they launch. The truth is, you’ll ever truly learn until you have a live campaign running. So just start.
If it takes you more than 1-2 days to get up and running… you’re seriously wasting time.
If you want to get started in mobile, this is the easiest and fastest way to do it. Like I said, this is the tutorial I used personally to launch my first mobile campaign. Now, I’m 90% mobile.
I could have easily written my own course based on this and charged $xxxx for it. But that’s kinda shady and I’d rather just send you straight to the source.
If you already have a StackThatMoney account, you’re good to go. If you don’t you’ll need to get one. It’s $99/month and it’s totally worth it.
StackThatMoney gives you:
- Step-by-step instructions to launch and optimize on mobile
