I want to say thanks to the whole team of AffPaying.com.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? How old are you?
I’m Ahsan Farooq and 20 years old. I born and live in PAKISTAN.
2. How long have you been in affiliate marketing and how did you get involved?
I’m in Affiliate Marketing for more than 3 years. I remember i was a student and looking for some work which i can do from home easily. So i searched a lot on internet and I found this business very attractive so i chose it. But unfortunately at that time i was new in this field and wasn’t know much about this that’s why due to miss guidance i used to promote black traffic at my start. Now i’m doing good traffic but past mistakes are great barriers in my progress way now a days.
3. How long was it before you realized you could live off your affiliate income?
In the last year 2010 publishers liked ARM Media Network LLC. and they provide much traffic to us and we done good business and I realized that we can do much better than 2010. And also we can grow more and more so no need to worry.
4. What has been your biggest success to date?
To be very frank as everyone knows it’s our start so we didn’t get any biggest success yet. But the publishers like ARM Media Network LLC. and they believe us on our start this is why we are growing rapidly and i think when we start paying our all affiliates on daily and weekly basis than i’ll think we’ve achieved our biggest success. 😉
5. What was the biggest mistake you made when you first started doing Affiliate Marketing?
Yes I did some mistakes in start and this was my biggest mistake that I used my old domain due to low budget. I was using this domain at my start for the personal business and as i mentioned before at my start I wasn’t know much about affiliate marketing so i start to use twitter and facebook promotion and get some high conversions and some quality concerns that’s why my account was blocked by some networks and now it’s impacting bad impressions on ARM Media Network LLC.’s applications now a days. When we place new applications to any advertiser and they start reviewing our applications they found that we have already blocked by some affiliate networks and they used to deny our application. That was a mistake which effects on our good quality traffic now. I’m requesting to everyone now by using your platform please review our applications correctly and give us a try to prove our self ARM Media Network LLC. is against bad quality traffic. Our AIM is to provide good quality to our Advertisers and Good offers, Payouts and Support to our Affiliates.

We are currently paying weekly payments to those affiliates who are earning $5k+/week and we currently have low numbers of such kind of affiliates who are set on weeklies. Hope we will see more numbers in future and we are working hard to decrease this threshold to pay maximum affiliates on weekly basis. 🙂

10. Which offers are performing well on your network?
Exclusive, Insurance, Automotive, Email / Zip Submits, Education, Dating etc. these offers verticals are going are converting like crazy in our network.
11. Which traffic sources prove to be the most effective for your top earning affiliates – E-mail, PPC, PPV, Facebook, Media Buying or any others?
We believe that everyone has special abilities and it doesn’t mean if a method is working good for one affiliate it will also work same for another affiliate as well. Every affiliate has to find his hidden abilities by himself. 😉
ARM Media Network LLC. is strong in these promotion methods Email, PPC, PPV, Social and newslatters as well.
12. I see you are using HasOffers as your affiliate tracking platform. What made you pick them instead of choosing HitPath, DirectTrack, Cake Marketing or LinkTrust etc.? Do you have a plan to create your own tracking platform?
To be very frank I chose hasoffers because of low budget. But we are thinking to change our tracking platform due to some bugs and issues with hasoffers. I agree this platform is easy but really not happy because they failed to solve some issues.
13. What are the criteria for a marketer to be accepted at ARM Media Network? How does ARM Media Network prevent and handle fraud?
Every affiliate is welcome at ARM Media Network LLC as long as they are sending legit traffic. We always care good quality promoters because we love them.

They can earn more than bad quality and their payments will confirm. We are doing home work every day and our team is reviewing the traffic from every publisher to know how he/she is promoting offers by checking EPC and all other tools to see if he/she is doing good or bad quality.

15. In your opinion, what are the best places for a new affiliate to learn affiliate marketing? What advice would you give for them?
Affiliate Marketing forums are the best place to learn more and more about affiliate marketing. Keep reading new posts there and try to implement those strategies. I will refer these forums.
16. In your experience, what are the three most critical elements of run a successful campaign.
1). Communication with all involved parties
2). Choose effective traffic source
3). An offer from High converting offers list
17. What’s the difference between a Super Affiliate and an Average Affiliate?
In my point of view super affiliates can make their own ways and make every campaign good converting and Average/Normal affiliates follow the ways that are used by super affiliates to make their campaign good converting.
In Simple words Super affiliates are writers and Average/Normal affiliates are readers.
18. What are the keys to building successful relationships between Affiliates and Affiliate Networks? What are some of the challenges of being an Affiliate Manager/Owner?
Quick and Friendly support is the biggest key in the relationship between affiliates and affiliate networks. The biggest challenge as an owner of a network is to check everything with full attention and do your best for advertisers and as well as affiliates. In ARM Media’s progress as an owner I found one criticle challenge that we are from PAKISTAN which is in ASIA Pacific, due to some issues it is not generally acceptable for everyone.
19. If you could change one thing about the affiliate industry, what would it be?
I want to change the one main thing in affiliate industry. Many networks don’t like to reply after block the account of an affiliate which is not a good thing. In my point of view it’s the right of every affiliate to defend himself and if he’s innocent his account should be reopen with his full commission. ARM Media Network LLC. is providing opportunity to affiliates who thinks their account is blocked due to some miss understanding they can defend themselves we will hear them and if we found them innocent their account will reopen.
20. What do you think about where the industry is going? Where ARM Media Network may be going? What advice would you give to affiliates to keep up the pace.
I think industry is just in beginning and growing. Our aim to get more advertisers, more campaigns and more affiliates for our network. ARM Media Network LLC. got good response from the advertisers and the publishers as well at it’s begging i thought this believe will become deepest as the time will pass. Our affiliates are our main power I believe that it’s their own network as well so they will do their best to bring their network at the top of the glance.
21. What are your goals in 2011?
Our goal in 2011 is to provide more and more good quality work to our advertisers to make their businesses grow and the maximum possible facilities, offers, high payouts and more friendly support to our affiliates as well. ARM Media Network LLC. wants to provide daily and weekly payment schedules to all affiliates in 2011. I’m hoping 2011 will be the wonderful year for ARM Media Network LLC. 🙂 And also want to make sub offices in US and UK in 2011.
22. What’s your favorite movie and why?
The Social Network is my favorite movie because it shows how easy it is to face this world.
