GreenCapstone's Paid Traffic Case Study - Month 1

So this is the sub's first paid traffic case study. It's gonna be a LOT different than SEO and this will be a tough subject to breach for anyone coming in cold... but hopefully I can do an OK job explaining the basics & maybe offer some value to anyone looking to make the leap.
My goal here is twofold: to clarify some basic points about paid traffic and (mostly) to share my journey as I learn paid traffic. I'll update on a monthly basis with a recap of what I did each month, my general progress, and any interesting lessons I've learned that may help others get into paid traffic.

Stuff About Me

I started with SEO affiliate sites when I first stumbled onto this sub in late '15/early '16. Immediately loved it.
Somewhere around mid '17 I got into paid traffic out of curiosity. The more I looked into it the more I enjoyed it. Some people really prefer organic growth, creating a brand, building links, and publishing awesome content. And I definitely like all of that. But to me paid traffic is just more enjoyable.
So I've been running both SEO sites and paid traffic coming up on about a year now. I've learned so much in both areas and I can now officially say that I do affiliate marketing fulltime.
However I am NOT a:
I'm just someone who put in the time to make it this far. And I'm still putting in the time because honestly, I'm not that far.
I do think it's true that anyone can do this work. It's just that most people won't.
My last point before I delve into the case study is to personally thank Humble for his original case studies. I was here in '16 following every single update. That really pushed me into AM and I'm forever grateful, not just for Humble's work, but for everyone on this sub who's shared information. Hopefully I can offer a little of what I took away from this community and pay it forward to others.

Intro To Paid Traffic

None of my future case studies will have an intro section but I want to at least provide a small overview here.
Basically I'm buying ads at a certain price & sending them to affiliate offers(or landing pages that lead to affiliate offers).
The goal is to earn more in revenue than I paid for the ads. The difference is my profit(or loss).
A few terms worth defining:
  • Vertical - Another term for "niche". Paid traffic affiliates say "what's your vertical?" instead of "what's your niche?". They mean the same thing.
  • Offer - The offer is basically whatever specific product you're promoting. This varies based on what vertical you're in. For example, adult dating offers are usually different dating sites that want active users.
  • Geo - The country you're in. So if I'm running traffic in Australia then my geo is AU. In the paid traffic world most affiliates shorten geos to their 2-letter abbreviation.
  • Affiliate Manager - Shortened to AM, this is your connection to each affiliate network. You work with your AM to get information on different offers like conversion rates, daily rev, total traffic, EPC, lead quality, and potential pay bumps.
  • Traffic Source - The website where you're buying traffic. For example if I'm running offers on Facebook then FB is my traffic source. If I'm buying display ads I might buy those from any number of traffic sources. Using the adult dating example from earlier, I might buy display ads from Traffic Junky which is a great source for adult traffic.
  • Placements - The individual websites where you buy ads on. These placements will change based on which TS you're using but most traffic sources have a bunch of placements for each geo. The only difference is when you buy ads on a single website like Facebook or Google.
I know I'm forgetting a bunch of terms but I'll clarify stuff as I go on. The lingo is different but you pick it up fast.
So there's also a few tools you should know about since paid traffic isn't easy on its own.
At a minimum I use these tools each month for paid traffic:
  • Voluum - SaaS tracker. This is where I curate all my data in one place. Total spend, total conversions, revenue, which offers are working, which landers, which placements... everything is in the tracker. Voluum is most recommended for newbies and it's what I've stuck with. I've also heard good things about FunnelFlux and AdsBridge.
  • AdPlexity - Spy tool. When you're starting in paid traffic AM spying is crucial. It's better to copy & revamp existing creatives(banners & landers) rather than create your own from scratch. Adplexity is one of the best spy tools out there since it covers so many areas.
  • Hosting - This can be almost anything but your best bet for speed is static hosting. S3+CloudFront or Rackspace+Cloudflare are the two setups I see most recommended.
The actual setup of tracking URLs, postbacks, adding traffic sources, setting up tokens, it's all very confusing at first. Truth be told it's a little beyond my willingness to explain it all here.
But there are some guides online and once you get everything setup it slowly starts to make sense.
There's a lot more I could cover here but I don't want this post to run too long. And my goal with this case study is merely to share what I'm doing each month and answer questions where I can--NOT to provide a start-to-finish guidebook for newbies to get into paid traffic. Maybe I can find time to write something like that in the future if there's interest. But if you want that I'd suggest dropping the $99/mo on STM and just following their guides.
I will try my best to help anyone with questions though. All I can say is that getting into paid traffic is tough, even just trying to understand the way the setup works. But it gets easier.
It is very different from SEO and it's arguably harder to understand. But I personally think it offers higher potential revenue and a faster return. You can also burn money like crazy. Good times.

My April 2018 Stats

I won't be sharing any of my specific offers or my geos in this case study. But I will share as much as I feel comfortable sharing in a public forum.
Right now I'm running pop traffic which is a cheap way to learn. Generally popups/popunders are annoying as shit and I don't love running them. But it's far cheaper than Facebook, Native, or PPC. Display is another option but I'm simply not bothering with that.
My current spend budget is anywhere from $2500-$3500/mo. I'm promoting a mix of CPL(cost per lead) offers. This means if I send a lead that signs up to the offer then I get a conversion. Example: I send a lead to a dating website and they pay me $1.50 per signup.
Numbers are likely the most interesting here so I'll share two screenshots: 1) MTD stats and 2) a screen from the primary offer I've got running green right now.
https://i.imgur.com/2QJ0puA.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/hEqBMkP.jpg
These screens are both from Voluum and you'll see in the 1st screenshot that this month I've lost money. But -20% isn't really too bad. That could flip green in a couple days with a great offer.
The 2nd screenshot shows one "campaign" running on 3 different traffic sources. I'm testing a single offer here and hoping I can scale it(which means buying traffic on as many sources as I can to earn as much as possible).
You'll see three rows in the 2nd screenshot. Those each represent a different campaign in Voluum, but all together they are technically the same camp. Just running on different sources. I know that's confusing but I'm not really sure how to clarify further!
Right now I'm optimizing that campaign which means a couple things:
  1. Finding the best browsers/OS/devices that are consistently converting
  2. Finding the worst placements(ie. websites) and cutting those out
Between those two things I'd say #2 is more important. That's the process of removing any websites that don't work so I can stop paying for them. The idea is to only be paying for the best placements so that I'm profitable. I'll cover this more in future updates where I actually have screens for optimization, but here's one simple example from my current camp:
https://i.imgur.com/FyAYWtB.jpg
Each row represents a different website/placement. Some are -100% which means I've spent money and earned nothing. Many of those have already been cut. Others are red but have converted, and others are green.
Goal is to just keep going until you've still got some volume + you're running green. Easier said than done.
The rest of the month has me testing a bunch of offers/geos to find other working ones. Some are close but many didn't work. That's usually how this goes, especially in the beginning.
Total Tested Offers: 13
Total Tested Geos: 3
These numbers aren't great and I should have tested a lot more this month. But some other annoyances kinda got in the way and tied up my time.
Currently planning to launch a lot more going into May and hopefully I'll be able to share more interesting stats.
This case study is definitely a work in progress and I'm not sure how to present stats in a way so that they're understandable. Over time I think I'll find a good rhythm for this. If there are any specific stats you wanna see just ask & I'll share what I can.
Admittedly I'm not the best teacher so this does feel like a big long ramble to me. I'm sure most of this also seems foreign enough to be coming from whatever country is halfway across the world from you.
No worries, it really is that confusing. But I'll try my best with my shoddy teaching skills to offer the most useful info possible.

To The Future!

I'd like to post a new update each month going out for maybe 8-12 months. Regardless of where I end up I think this should give plenty of time to add value and help some people pick up knowledge on paid traffic.
With each case study I'll try my best to answer any questions you guys have. This sub is great about no hand holding, but I also think paid traffic has very little clear info publicly on the Internet compared to SEO affiliate stuff. I'm OK answering some baby questions in the beginning since I still consider myself a baby in this space. But I will try to keep my responses unique so I'm not answering the same questions over & over.
One thing to note: I'm also doing this case study to meet people and connect with folks serious about affiliate marketing.
When you get into paid traffic you realize how important it is to actively network. This holds true for people doing SEO affiliate work as well. Who you know matters. A lot.
If anyone is serious about AM and has already put in some work(not a complete noob) I'd be happy to connect. I don't mean to discriminate but there are tons of tire kickers in this industry. If you've put in some work and made any progress then it shows you're at least somewhat serious. And I'd love to connect with folks who are serious about AM so we can help each other, even after I end this case study. If there's any point I could make here it's just about AM as a career: relationships matter.
So let me wrap up my spiel and say thanks to everyone who read this far! I definitely look forward to my next update and hopefully I'll have a better idea of what information to share by then.

The best way to start

Hey AMers I recently came across a Charles Ngo article on mobile pop ads (will include my notes at the bottom of this post). In it he mentions that mobile pops are a great way to get a feel for affiliate marketing because they give you a feel for optimization, they're relatively cheap and you don't have to build ads.
What I'd really love to know from affiliatemarketing is:
1. What in your opinion is the best way to get started in affiliate marketing?
2. How did you get started in affiliate marketing?
3. What's a realistic budget for getting started?
Notes from the article mentioned above:
Mobile pop ads are interruption marketing (i.e. visitors do not expect or want to see your ads).
Get started with these 6 steps:
  1. Set up your campaign on Voluum, the tool you’ll use to track everything. This way you can optimize your campaigns to get the best bang for your buck.
  2. Identify and sign up for at least one mobile traffic pop source
    PropellerAds PopAds WWWPromoter
  3. Find mobile offers to promote from affiliate networks
    YepAds ClickDealer Avazu
  4. Build a landing page
    Make sure it’s lightning fast Opt for simple images
  5. Get dedicated (as opposed to shared) hosting
    A CDN like Rackspace
  6. Cheat with competitive intelligence tools
    A spy tool like Adplexity lets you see thousands of landing pages & campaigns that other affiliates are running
Offers that work well with these sorts of campaigns include:
App Installs - Like Antivirus and utilities Lead generation - Getting visitors to fill in forms Vouchers - Work well if you can localize your marketing Trials - For health and beauty offers Sweepstakes - To win devices like iPhones and tablets

7:58pm A creative agency got up and went with a pitch which was in essence "We do all your marketing for you". The discussion moved to how much of the fee was performance based especially in the direction of gross adds. The rest of this is my POV only: I think the pitcher handled this badly stating that they didn't do that kind of thing because if the startup doesn't get the expected customers, the startup is doing something wrong. What wasn't explained well was that acquiring a customer is a holistic thing based on knowing about the company (consideration), evaluation of options, and then the actual purchase. Marketing is only really involved with the first component and to a much lesser extent the second (goodwill towards the brand). In a startup environment without a regular run rate it is very hard to commit to the exponential growth that most startups aim for, because the product is constantly changing and the business model is evolving as well as the underlying services. In short, a marketing agency at the startup phase should accept responsibility only for brand and product recognition. The rest is too subjective. In any case I am strongly against startups outsourcing sales or marketing. You're in a search for product market fit, you need to be as close to the customer as possible. /end of rant
8:00pm /LondonStartUp had it's go. Some people hadn't heard of reddit, others thought there was enough spaces to discuss the community, but some were enthused. For the first time pitching this place in real life I'm ok with the few people who came up and thanked me and especially for the one instant subscriber.
End of Pitches networking from 8-9pm
EDIT After the meeting: Explained the IncuBusLdn from the organizers because I think they deserved a bit more than my initial effort. Expanded my little pitch component. Then went on a rant about the creative agency discussion.

Questions Answers
I want to do the same but i keep holding myself back,How scary was the launch? It was honestly terrifying. I had spent so much time working on the site (some days sitting 8AM - 3AM on my laptop!), and I was really scared it would just flop.. It was like jumping into a swimming pool after months of training and not knowing if it was full of clear blue water or concrete.
At the time, I was using a shared hosting plan with InMotion Hosting for about $8.00 a month. It was even called the "Power Plan." As you probably can imagine, the server melted within the first 5 minutes of being on reddit.. That was a nightmare.
Overall, it was a really incredible learning experience that gave me a complete crash course on web servers, caching, CDNs, load balancers and a lot more techy terms I had never heard of.
I think the scariest part was that I knew how amazing of an opportunity reddit was giving me, but I was scared I wasn't capitalizing to the fullest extent. In the end, the reddit community was really supportive and I received a tremendous amount of useful feedback and insight. The exposure even snowballed into a ton of tech news PR!
EDIT: Had another thought.. :)
Thanks thats one of my main worries, I think i have a unique service and i fear either the site will melt (I'm using weebly) or ill get down-voted into oblivion.Thanks for the inspiration its time for me too man up grow a beard and get on with it. You'll never know until you try. Every person who visits your service is a tremendous resource for feedback and insight. Just make sure to have a direct way to collect thoughts from visitors. I've found that using Olark to chat with visitors is extremely useful in that regard.
And about the beard..
Who did you end up hosting with? We are looking into Pagoda Box or just using Amazon's EC2. I started with InMotion Hosting and had a really bad experience. We're now with Rackspace, and they've been excellent.
Thanks for the inspiration I'm still working on the beard but i think im ready to publish can i send you a link to see what you think? You definitely can! Feel free to send me a PM.
I noticed reading through your FAQs that you offer the ability to preorder successfully funded projects (keeping the makers with more revenue during the development process which i'm sure can help some of them). I think the biggest reason for the backlash is that project creators sometimes don't communicate properly with backers. As a backer of the Pen Type-A project, I saw firsthand just how crazy manufacturing a new product can get. Despite waiting over a year to receive my reward, I was completely understanding of the the designers CW&T because they kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. There wasn't months of silence only to hear about another screwup. They kept their backers informed throughout all the craziness. In the end, they delivered a beautifully designed product, and I'd back them again. To answer your question more particularly about Outgrow.me, at the moment, we generally don't process pre-orders directly through the site. Instead we direct customers to where they can place the pre-order. We're working on getting a pre-order system set up where your credit card isn't charged until the order ships. I hope to have that up sometime next month.
As someone with almost zero web dev experience other than modifying a bunch of Twitter Bootstrap templates, what do you suggest is the best way to learn web dev and launch a site for an absolute beginner? I've found Codecademy to be an incredible resource. Unlike many sites with tutorial videos, it offers a really interactive, hands-on learning experience. I think the best way to learn (and how I did it myself) is to use Codecademy while simultaneously working on a project. That way, while you're learning, you can actually see how it can be applied. At the same time, online communities like stackoverflow and reddit (/learnprogramming /HTML /csshelp ) are extremely supportive and can give you guidance when you get stuck.
Oh, and you can even read my Codecademy interview :)
To add on to his question a bit what programming languages do you think are most important to know? It really depends what you're trying to accomplish. After a basic overview of HTML and CSS, JavaScript and Jquery are essential to any web dev project. From there, I think Ruby on Rails is a fantastic programming language to learn. I've had a really great time with it thus far.
What percentage of your success do you attribute to your beard? A much larger percentage than you'd think! I usually interact with people via email or on the phone, but when I meet people in person I always see the look of surprise on their face. They do not expect to see a bearded Jewish guy in a tailored suit working in something as hight tech as crowdfunding.. Once we start talking though, the response I get is always positive, and I think people respect me even more for shattering their expectations.
TL;DR I try to capitalize on people's prejudices.
How much of the web development and technical stuff did you do yourself and how much was done by experienced programmers that you brought in? I'm planning on launching a site but I'm a bit nervous because even though I have a decent amount of programming experience my web development skills are still in their infancy (especially since I'm a back end guy and know almost nothing about frontend development). Also, what sort of technical stack are you using? Thanks for the AMA! I pretty much did everything myself from development to design to UI. At the start, I tried hiring developers on sites like Odesk to help me fix bugs. Looking back, I ended up paying ridiculous amounts of money to incompetent developers to try and fix things I can now fix within a few minutes..
I personally think that the right way to go is to launch and then bring on help if you need it. Once you can prove the concept, you should have a much easier time bringing on a second developer.
If you do need front-end help with design, try /Design_Critiques. That sub is very supportive, and I received a lot of incredible feedback there.
While it doesn't look like it at first glance, the site's written in PHP with WordPress. I'm in the process of switching over to a Rails platform pretty soon though (hopefully).
Why are you planning to switch to Rails Rails offers a lot more flexibility to build out custom features. A platform like WordPress requires never-ending plugins that make the site really bulky and sluggish.
How did you go about the actual reddit intro? (Link to your original intro post?) Here's the original reddit post.
Would you have done the intro any different? Something I regret is not initially having a way to capture the initial waves of visitors I received. At the time, I was so overwhelmed with getting the site up and running that I didn't have any social media setup or even an email newsletter. That was definitely a mistake.
Also, did you concurrently introduce yourself via email/TwitteFaceBook/etc... to other channels? (online mags, professional bloggers, ???) and if so what was or was not efective for you and why? At the same time, while we have now have a number of Facebook and Twitter followers, not much of our revenue is generated through social media.
It seems like once one has a site up and running you want to get the word out about yourself as explosively as possible, and I'm wondering if you explored other channels besides reddit. I definitely think it's important to be explosive about getting exposure before a competitor launches and steals your thunder. In my case, the exposure definitely snowballed from article to article. At the same time, reaching out to writers offered little return on time. It seems like you really need an "in" to get any attention with them.
Having read the original post, do you still feel that Twitter Bootstrap would have been your development tool of choice? I definitely think it's worth taking advantage of any resources that allow you to get up and running quickly. My only hesitation with Twitter Bootstrap is that you often end up with a very template-looking site. If you're looking to get started with Bootstrap, take a look at wrapbootstrap.
lastly I gotta ask - your comments about "not much $$$ from social media" (I assume you mean from AdSense of the like). What is your primary business model? Do you add a percentage/fee on transactions for providing a one-stop-shop for people so they don't have to scour around for the project developer's website? The primary business model is that we warehouse many of our most popular products and sell them directly to customers. You can check them out here. You'll notice all of these products have a little W in the corner, representing that we have them in stock.
How much has competition been a factor? I see on the site that it says "first marketplace". Has there been another sites trying to do what you do? If so, how has been reacting to the competition? I ask, because I plan on starting my own web service that currently has an up-and-coming competitor. Initially I was scared people with real development experience would come along and build superior sites, but that never happened. Don't get me wrong, there are at least a half a dozen sites that are trying to work in the same space as Outgrow.me, but none have been successful. I think the reason why I've managed to stand apart is that I focus completely on providing a great customer experience and a product of value to my partners. I focus first on trying to build something awesome and second on how to pay the bills. That's why Outgrow.me has close to 500 projects while the other sites trying to compete have closer to 50.
No matter what you do, you'll always have competition. I try not to look at what others are doing but to focus on what I believe needs to be done. While it is important to know what's going on in your space, it's sometimes more important not to let what others are doing turn you away from your core values.
Thank you so much for your response! Your advice really did help. I'd love to stay in contact and get your advice/mentoring in the future through the start-up process if that would be something you'd be willing to do :). It would be my pleasure. Just shoot me a PM anytime.
I always have a friends and family asking me how they can implement their business ideas on the web and smartphones. I usually recommend they learn how to code first and send them to CodeAcademy. Do you think learning how to code (even knowing the basics) should be a prerequisite for anyone starting a tech business these days? Do you think you would have had the same success if you didn't learn how to code and just hire some programmers? I definitely think it's critical to either have some web dev experience yourself or to have a co-founder that has experience. I never would have been able to succeed without it. When you hire a developer, especially off a site like Odesk or Freelancer, you're really at their mercy. You have no idea what they're talking about, how long things should take, what's possible, what isn't possible, and importantly what it should cost. That really limits what you're able to accomplish.
How many hours per week do you work on this idea? I probably work somewhere around 55 - 60 hours a week. I don't keep to much of a schedule.
For products that have already launched, do you hold inventory? I see some products refer directly to your merchant's website, how do you monetize on these items? We don't hold inventory of every product, but you can see the ones we have here. We don't monetize every item. Most of the outbound links have no affiliate setup. Our goal is to provide a great customer experience by showcasing as many projects as possible, instead of just the ones we can monetize. In the end, customers appreciate the wide selection, and that lets us take into inventory more and more products. Plus, it's nice to hear the sound of surprise when designers hear we'll showcase their project for free! :)
Great stuff and thanks for the AMA! Can you tell us what shopping cart software/plugin you use or used with Wordpress when you first started, and would you still recommend it? Finding a shopping cart that would integrate well with WordPress was a huge hassle. After trying dozens of plugins that didn't work very well, I tried to integrate Balanced Payments which turned out to be far too difficult for a complete novice. I then gave PayPal embedded buttons a try and that worked OK for a little while. The trouble was that it forced customers to checkout on a separate site..
At the moment, we're using WePay for our checkout and I highly recommend it. It's easy to setup and super convenient.
I've never heard of your site before and, by coincidence, was thinking the other day that there needs to be a "successful" kickstarter site given that kickstarter themselves doesn't offer that simple filter function. So your site is awesome. I especially like that you can filter "orderable" from "pre-orderable". The tile layout is great: a simple photo; description and price on hover! I'd suggest the following sorts: "date of orderable launch"; popularity (voting directly on your site??); sort by units shipped. I'm definitely working on the sorting feature. I'm thinking along the same lines as you, but to include sort by amount of money raised, number of backers, site popularity, and the like. I'll definitely keep your recommendations in mind, so thank you!
Did you email Lifehacker, Wired, and those other websites? I email about 40 sites about my iPad app The Photo Journal, but hardly heard anything back. Any trick to get featured? I didn't have any luck randomly emailing news sites. What I have had luck with is finding articles relevant to my startup and emailing those particular writers directly. Best of luck!
How many of these kickstarter projects have you tried? Follow up: which were your favorites? I've tried a couple hundred. Best part of my job! :)
Some favorites are the MaKey MaKey, Ostrich Pillow, Mason Shaker, Griz Coat and if you haven't played Zombicide or Cards Against Humanity you're really missing out..
Cards against humanity got its start from your website? Cards Against Humanity didn't start on my site but on Kickstarter.
Was it difficult to get a business license or tax ID? Do you recommend getting a PO box address to use? Also, are you drop-shipping or stocking inventory and shipping on your own? Great site by the way, made me wish I thought of this! Not at all. It's super easy to get a tax ID online, and I used Clerky to register my corporation. I'm currently renting an office and warehouse in Brooklyn, as we stock most of the items we well.
How do you make money? Many of the products on the site are ones we hold in inventory and allow you to purchase directly. You can see them here. You'll notice they all have a little W logo in the corner to show that we have them in stock and sell direct.
Thank you for the ama. can you talk about how you went about getting recognition? did you email editors? I have a startup that's launching at the end of summer and we're nervous about just getting our name out there. A reddit post can work wonders. In our case, a bunch of editors picked up the story on their own after seeing it on reddit. Another method I've found to be effective is to look out for articles relevant to what you're building and then drop the writers a message about what you're building and why you think it would interest them.
I'd like to say congratulations to you for your success. I'm in a similar position with an idea I'm in love with and now I'm just trying to gain as much knowledge as I possibly can to properly develop it. For my question, what was your target level of completion before launching? Did you try to launch already as fully equipped to handle everything as possible, or did you launch simple and then try to shift the site to the needs of the user base? How did you decide you were ready to go live? My target level was as soon as the site functioned. As soon as someone could visit and find some use for the site, I launched. I didn't wait until everything was perfect but worked to perfect it along the way. Looking back, I definitely see the tremendous value in building out a site while taking feedback from users. It allows you to include features people want and not waste time building features no one cares about.
Yeah that would be my thinking as well. It clearly worked out for you. I guess the only catch to that thinking is you need to make sure your site is good enough at launch to leave a positive first impression. I think that's why it's really great to take advantage of subreddits like /design_critques and /startups. That way you can get feedback before an official launch. Those communities are extremely supportive and offer excellent constructive criticism.
I find your site stylistically appealing, it has a very natural flow to it. Is the site's current form close to what you originally intended? Thank you! I designed it myself with a lot of hard work, so I appreciate the occasional pat on the back :)
The design and layout have definitely come a very long way. Because I worked on the design while the site was live, I was able to take feedback I was receiving from visitors and implement it directly. I never rolled out huge changes but instead rolled out small updates every day. That let me pull back features people didn't like and double down on the features people appreciated. The site is really a product of the Outgrow.me community.
So how do you manage to not work on shabbat? teach us all how to disconnect for 24 hours please in the restless world of tech/entrepreneurship I have to say that I'm never more at peace than on Friday night when I turn off my computer and cell phone. It's a complete sense of calm and tranquility. It's my one day to recharge my batteries and get ready for a new week. Jewish or not, I think it's extremely important to take some time off from the work grind and enjoy yourself and your family. You'd be amazed at the wonders it can do.
What are your thoughts on equity crowdfunding? In terms of potential, problems, etc. I think there's a tremendous amount of potential there. The trouble is that the SEC doesn't seem to be committed to moving forward on it. They still haven't even provided a timetable. It's hard to say what problems equity crowdfunding may run into before the SEC introduces the rules and regulations that the crowdfunding platforms will have to abide by. I'm optimistic though!
Where on reddit did you post it? In tech categories only? What do you think helped you the most at the beginning? I originally posted in /gadgets. Here's the post. Someone also posted in /shutupandtakemymoney before I was even ready to launch and that definitely gave me a huge needed push.
Are you looking into any new projects currently? Congratulations on your success! I've actually started on a few over the last couple of months! I helped my wife launch BabyBakeShop, and I'm launching VisuallyFresh (sneak peek!) sometime next week.
I honestly love working on new projects and brainstorming ideas. The hardest part is sticking with each idea until it's really off the ground and not just dabbling in projects..
How did you manage your time with the startup, wife, kids and work ? It seems to be hard to split the attention to a personal project when you have lots of responsibilities, at least for me. In the beginning, I definitely spent incredible amounts of time working. I'd be at my laptop until the wee hours of the morning, and that was definitely stressful to my family. It took time before I was able to adjust and learn how to manage my time efficiently. These days, I still spend a few days a week working as much as possible, but I also spend a few days a week coming home early to watch The Voice with my wife..
How did you come up with the name? I thought of crowdfunded projects as having outgrown their funding and now in need of a long-term home. When I picked it, I never thought the site would take off to the extent it did. I still randomly have better names pop into mind, but it's definitely too late now!
Which Codecademy courses did you take, and which ones were the most useful? I took the Web, JavaScript, jQuery, API, and Ruby tracks. I also used railsforzombies to get some more Rails practice.
How is the site supporting itself, ads, affiliate links, the shopping cart? The site has a shopping cart that lets customers checkout directly. You can see that here. If we don't have the product in stock, we direct you to where you can place an order.
I am trying to get a site off the ground at the moment. What do you think are the best moves I could make to get traffic to my site? What marketing did you do apart from reddit? I think it really depends on what kind of project it is. It's worth giving Hacker News a try. Otherwise, I think it's important to reach out to writers that feature companies in the same space as your site. Let them know what you're up to and why you think they should care.
How was your day? My day has been fantastic. After all the support reddit has shown me, it's nice to give back a little.
I know this is two days old, but how long did it take for you to go from your first Codeacademy track to the launch of your website? I honestly launched a site within a few weeks of starting on Codecademy. The site was completely terrible, but it was a start!
I'm a electrical engineer interested in learning web development. What specific resources would you recommend in addition to Codeacademy to help get me started in learning how to build a dynamic webpage? I'd recommend taking a look at edx, and Kahn Academy. I've also found that browsing tutorials on sites like Codrops is really useful.
I don't have any questions for you, just wanted to say this is the first time in a gazillion ages that I've spent this much time on any website just browsing and clicking and browsing and clicking. Nice work. Now where's my wallet, I have a ton of shit to buy ... curse you As a reminder, if you sign up to our newsletter on top of the site, you get 10% off your first purchase. Hopefully that helps a bit!
Its very cool to be able to put on the "orderable" filter and see what kickstarter has actually accomplished. Not much software yet, but lots of little gadgets I'd otherwise never hear about. Thank you! The site is definitely product oriented, although we do try to include video games and other kinds of software. We're partially reliant on visitors submitting projects to be added, so feel free to send over your favorites!
As a founder with no programming experience - what programming language and architexture did you choose for the website , When I launched, I had no idea about the sheer number of different platforms options. I went with WordPress, because it was one I had heard about the most about, and I figured it couldn't be too difficult (I was really wrong). The site is all PHP and is pretty much a fully custom theme with a lot of custom code in the backend. Choosing WordPress allowed me to be up and running quickly, but it's been a real nightmare when integrating new features and developing an API. We're in the process of migrating to a Rails platform, which I'm really excited about. It's hard to peg down exactly when the site started running. At the launch, the site was definitely a nightmare. Nothing worked. When people clicked buttons or links, nothing would happen. For the life of me, I couldn't even figure out how to float an element.. Over time, I fixed bugs and worked on the design. I'd say it was 3-4 months before I was somewhat content with how the site was working.
How long did it take for you to learn and make the site running.
Has the websites code changed after launch or you are still using the same code

Guide to getting a Dedicated server host! What I did wrong and what I recommend others to do!

Recently My friends and I have been playing a lot of Feed The Beast! We decided to gather money and buy a server. Our first choice was CreeperHost. Big mistake. Now i'm sure they are fine for others but for us we had massive issues! It began with block lag, which we didn't think much of so we contacted support, They advised that we buy more ram, Having 1GB then. We bought 2 more GBs of RAM. Not only did the lag not stop, we had massive rollbacks! After asking support a few more times for help with nothing working, we asked for a refund and the map. Apparently we did something against the contract and they just shut down our server all together so we just canceled our account, with no refund. After this absolutely horrid experience we decided on doing it on our own. So we bought a VPS! Sure there are plenty of good automated server hosts but for the same price and being in control of what happens to your server, I much preferred this option.
Basically a VPS is a "Virtual Private Server" host. Essentially and linux machine that you pay for them to host dedicated. This way, I just install the server files and run it!
The VPS I went with is DigitalOcean
We went with the 2GB of RAM plan with 2 Cores and 40GBs of SSD space and 3TB of bandwidth
This is enough for us since we are hosting no more then 10 people!
If you are hosting more, Google and figure out how much ram is advised for the amount of people you'd like to host. In our case, 2GBs for 10 people or less on FTB Unleashed is perfect with a bit more headroom.
We got the box with Ubuntu Server 12.10, I simply followed this Tutorial, I'm sure there are plenty more out there as well. Although I will note I used WinScp rather then SFTP so I didn't have to set that up on the server.
After completing it I ran it in under about and hour. I've been running the server for about a week now for cheaper then most hosts offer and with little to no lag and ZERO rollbacks so far!
If you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty in Linux this is a great choice!
If anyone wants me to make a Text or Youtube tutorial on everything I did, Ask away!

October 20, 2012. /r/ExtraLife. Gaming for charity to save children's lives!

/ExtraLife

1,082 charitable souls for 1 year
This post is not going to be like any other post I've done because this is a very special sub, one that exists so that Redditors can take part if a great charity called Extra Life.
Extra Life lets gamers hold their own 24-hour gaming marathons (think Relay for Life, but with virtual guns) to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals of their choice (including hospitals in the great United Kingdom and Australia, sorry to everyone else!).
Gamers can either participate on their suggested gaming marathon date (this year's is being held today, right now!), or on a date/time that's more convenient for them. There's no need for a camera or a live stream, though that's definitely a plus. Just pledge your time, play your game of choice on your platform of choice, and watch the charity money roll in. According the extra-life.org's website, participants have raised over 2 million dollars over the past 4 years of this charity's existence, which is pretty impressive in my humble little poor person opinion!
"Why is there a subreddit for this, though?" you might be asking yourself. Well, Reddit has a team that participates in this charity event, and /ExtraLife is how they organize, communicate and participate. Anyone can join team Reddit and anyone can donate to the team's efforts, just specify that you want to join or find a team Reddit member to donate to.
Currently, team Reddit is the number one team in donations, with over $50k raised! Woo, great job guys!
If you're interested in seeing what your fellow Redditors are playing for their marathons today, check out m3w1thoutY0u's live stream or just donate a few bucks to help soap_dispencer reach his goal of $100 (he's only $60 away!).
Today we have an interview with Reddit and ExtraLife mod alienth, who's here tell us more about team Reddit and how this sub came to be. Let's give him a nice warm welcome, everybody!
1.What inspired you to create ExtraLife, and are you officially affiliated with Extra-Life.org?
alienth Prior to my job reddit, I participated in two Extra Life marathons at Rackspace. It was a great event and it was something I thought would be awesome to organize at reddit. A couple of the folks who manage Extra Life it do participate in the subreddit, including the guy who created the event, JeromyAtCMNHospitals.
2.Tell me more about this charity gaming marathon on October 20th. How can Redditors get involved and how can they get sponsors?
alienth Extra Life works like any other charity marathon, except instead of running or biking a marathon, we play a 24 hour marathon of games. The event exists to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. People raise money by asking their friends and family to sponsor them with donations. Every penny of that donation goes directly to helping kids at the hospital the participant chooses.
Anyone can join by simply signing up on Extra Life's website. The marathon officially starts on Oct 20th at 8AM local time, however some do participate on other days to better fit in with their schedule.
3.I see that the sub was created a year ago. Did you all participate last year, or is this the first time there's been a Team Reddit?
alienth I created it last year, but unfortunately didn't have the time to engage the community heavily enough to get it going. We did participate in the marathon at the reddit office, but the subreddit was not involved.
4.How many people are in Team Reddit this year, and do you guys have any monetary goals that you're trying to reach?
alienth We're up to 725 members in Team reddit. Our goal was to raise $50,000, which we've already surpassed. We're currently at $50,351.12 raised. Most donations to the event tend to happen the day before and the day of the marathon, so I'm hopeful we'll keep soaring past our goal.

October 20, 2012. /r/ExtraLife. Gaming for charity to save children's lives!

1,082 charitable souls for 1 year
This post is not going to be like any other post I've done because this is a very special sub, one that exists so that Redditors can take part if a great charity called Extra Life.
Extra Life lets gamers hold their own 24-hour gaming marathons (think Relay for Life, but with virtual guns) to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals of their choice (including hospitals in the great United Kingdom and Australia, sorry to everyone else!).
Gamers can either participate on their suggested gaming marathon date (this year's is being held today, right now!), or on a date/time that's more convenient for them. There's no need for a camera or a live stream, though that's definitely a plus. Just pledge your time, play your game of choice on your platform of choice, and watch the charity money roll in. According the extra-life.org's website, participants have raised over 2 million dollars over the past 4 years of this charity's existence, which is pretty impressive in my humble little poor person opinion!
"Why is there a subreddit for this, though?" you might be asking yourself. Well, Reddit has a team that participates in this charity event, and /ExtraLife is how they organize, communicate and participate. Anyone can join team Reddit and anyone can donate to the team's efforts, just specify that you want to join or find a team Reddit member to donate to.
Currently, team Reddit is the number one team in donations, with over $50k raised! Woo, great job guys!
If you're interested in seeing what your fellow Redditors are playing for their marathons today, check out m3w1thoutY0u's live stream or just donate a few bucks to help soap_dispencer reach his goal of $100 (he's only $60 away!).
Today we have an interview with Reddit and ExtraLife mod alienth, who's here tell us more about team Reddit and how this sub came to be. Let's give him a nice warm welcome, everybody!
1.What inspired you to create ExtraLife, and are you officially affiliated with Extra-Life.org?
alienth Prior to my job reddit, I participated in two Extra Life marathons at Rackspace. It was a great event and it was something I thought would be awesome to organize at reddit. A couple of the folks who manage Extra Life it do participate in the subreddit, including the guy who created the event, JeromyAtCMNHospitals.
2.Tell me more about this charity gaming marathon on October 20th. How can Redditors get involved and how can they get sponsors?
alienth Extra Life works like any other charity marathon, except instead of running or biking a marathon, we play a 24 hour marathon of games. The event exists to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. People raise money by asking their friends and family to sponsor them with donations. Every penny of that donation goes directly to helping kids at the hospital the participant chooses.
Anyone can join by simply signing up on Extra Life's website. The marathon officially starts on Oct 20th at 8AM local time, however some do participate on other days to better fit in with their schedule.
3.I see that the sub was created a year ago. Did you all participate last year, or is this the first time there's been a Team Reddit?
alienth I created it last year, but unfortunately didn't have the time to engage the community heavily enough to get it going. We did participate in the marathon at the reddit office, but the subreddit was not involved.
4.How many people are in Team Reddit this year, and do you guys have any monetary goals that you're trying to reach?
alienth We're up to 725 members in Team reddit. Our goal was to raise $50,000, which we've already surpassed. We're currently at $50,351.12 raised. Most donations to the event tend to happen the day before and the day of the marathon, so I'm hopeful we'll keep soaring past our goal.

Have a great Saturday, everyone!
