Thought this might give you some inspiration –
Attended a webinar hosted by Scott Rewick yesterday and the focus was on a guy from San Francisco who netted $80million in 2 yrs as a CPA Affiliate.
His demographics are outstanding:
23 – programmer – fast learner – very competitive.
He started off with a 100$ media buy on Adblade and in only 6 months was spending $500,000 per day buying traffic.
Scott said he was doing 40,000 leads per day to a $60 Offer and growth was unbelievable … his secret was " inside information. "
The CPA Networks were telling him who was doing what & where and he would just go and outbid them.

He was driving so much traffic for the Networks he was paid every 2 days, but was cunning enough to organise Net60 Payments to the Ad Networks.
Just imagine the resources you could build up like that – get paid $200k every 2 days and then not having to pay for the traffic for another 60 days.
All done on Media buys – no Facebook, no POF, no PPV, no emails or search.
So there you go – aim for just 1% of his net and that will do me….

Wow. Just wow.
hmmm. that last one is interesting:
What specifically were they referring to when they said "He became the channel first"? Was this like – pick a source of traffic and find offers that are profitable?
Very inspiring thanks for sharing.
I found the replay here https://www.media-mentors.com/now/
Wicked story! That’s what you call a massive media buy. I actually see someone doing this right now with another offer for dating. It’s there own offer and they’re advertising absolutely everywhere.
Who’s Scott Rewick?
F*ck man. We all need to get rich with this stuff – i mean its our time right here and now.
I get so caught up in the minutia of the work, time and days just slip away, need to scale thoughts up
Scott Rewick is one of the early pioneers of modern Affiliate Marketing and most prolific media buyers that most people have never heard of….
Spending a mind blowing $100M in display based media over the last decade, Scott is one of the true pioneers of modern day affiliate marketing and high volume media buying. Starting in 1999, Scott Co-Founded one of the earliest Affiliate Networks, Metareward, which ultimately was sold to Experian for $30M. He then went on to co-found NetBlue, which became a $100M/year Lead Generation monster. Heading up the media buying group, Scott routinely spent between $200k-$300k per day buying online display media (less than 1% of that was with Google). Netblue ultimately raised over $20M in Venture Capital, and more recently merged with affiliate giant Epic Advertising (formerly Azoogle). Most recently, Scott was President and CEO of AdEx, a public lead generation company, doing over $23M in revenue in its first year.
Currently Scott and his partner Drew Kossoff run Cranking Media, a performance based Advertising Agency, focusing on driving high volume online media to select direct response clients. Scott uses Media-Mentors as a way to help educate and teach both the world of successful Affiliate Marketing and Media Buying.

Well you can’t make $80mil on PPV or social. Only media buys, But most buys are 10k minimum, and you shouldn’t jump in unless you have experience elsewhere.
I’ve done a few media buys and they’re pretty rough unless you have a really good campaign.
I’ve done 2 $10,000 media buys. and 1 $20,000 buy. None of them profited. Probably because i was running the same crap everyone else was at the time and didn’t differentiate myself.
What the companies do is, take your $10k, and then start advertising your ads everywhere, until they narrow down some converting targets. The thing is they have millions and millions of targets so they could be "testing" forever. At some point you call it and start advertising 50% of your budget on converting offers, and 50% testing new targets which really hurts your ROI. After $10k of testing you don’t find that much out with $1-$3 CPMs. After spending $10k on my best campaign i made roughly $6k back. Spent that $6k only on the good targets and made $5k or so, then i just pulled it. Same thing happened with my other campaigns, but it’s my own fault for following the herd and not putting a spin or angle on my campaign. Also most media companies tell you that you have to target RON at first, otherwise your CPMs are really high, which restricts you from starting off with your target market immediately.
Very inspiring story. Thanks for sharing!
I’m also wondering what, "He Became Channel First" means. I imagine that it would be covered in the webinar replay, but after 10 minutes, it still hasn’t loaded for me.
Thanks for sharing your experiences with media buys, Stackman. You’ve really illustrated that adding a spin/angle is key!
Yes, Scott refers to being channel drive or offer driven. And to pick one.
Channel driven meaning you don’t start with the offers, you are a master at a traffic source and for the most part can make any offer work, in particular by knowing what is being run successfully by others within that channel.
Offer driven meaning you start with finding offers, then take them to the proper channel.
Got it. That makes sense. Thanks!
So….just need to ask this…why is someone making several $millions a week flogging a product for $597??? even if 1000 people bought it the customer service hastle doesnt seem to be a good use of this guys time.
Always the big question… I can understand the desire to teach other people, and I assume it can be pretty lonely at the top of your game, but if I were in his position, I’m sure I’d hand pick a few people to personally mentor for free.
Very good point…
Would this question be the same as asking why Stackman takes the time to create this private forum for $199/mo, limited to 50 people? The forum does take time to maintain and keep subscribers happy by providing content/support/etc.. Wouldn’t Stackman be better off pumping out campaigns instead of sharing tips/tricks?
…well he can pause camps…travel..still pull in 10Gs a month!
That might be just it… Perhaps looking for a more stable source of income?
Hopefully though, with $80million, you’d have some sort of financial plan in place to make sure your money is making money in one way or another – not blowing it all away on crap.
@Jay – different scale and different model. I buy the membership / continuity model on a small scale as it creates a stable income stream and the opportunity to give back. I dont buy flogging all your knowledge that supposedly made you $millions for $500 a pop. Just cant see the ROI or Return on Cash.
Scott’s a good guy! Very impressive story!
Ive downloaded the webinar and Ill watch it tomorrow. The numbers certainly look impressive …. very very impressive.
ok I watched it and it is indeed a good story. a useful webinar to watch – useful tips around automation, cashflow, and scaling.
