STM Forum (Stackthatmoney) – Is It Still Worth $99/month in 2018?

Latest post update: 7th, November 2018.

STM Forum (formerly called StackThatMoney) is a private affiliate marketing community started back in 2011 by Stackman, Lorenzo Green and Besmir.

Since then it became one of the biggest private affiliate marketing communities, that now stands behind big events called Affiliate World Conferences.

If you read my blog for a while you may noticed that STM forum is on my list of tools for success, it’s actually first one on the list.

And there is a good reason for it.

I wrote this STM Forum review, so we can find out what it’s all about and whether it’s really worth to pay $99/month for it?

🔥 CoinTracking Review: Track & Manage Your Cryptocurrency Portfolio with CoinTracking

Unless you’ve been living under some rock, you’ve probably heard a word or two about Bitcoin, blockchain technology, and cryptocurrencies.

If not, you should do some research, as you may be missing out on something big!

Introduction

If I don’t count my first time shopping for Bitcoin in 2013 (I bought my first one for $72!), I personally got involved with cryptocurrency on a deeper level last year.

My involvement consists mainly of buying and holding (or, as it’s called, HODLING).

It’s a simple and easy investing strategy that has already multiplied my investment x times for this year.

I did some daily trades here and there, but I’m still not very comfortable there and I consider it much riskier than the simple BUY AND HOLD strategy.

…but back to the main question of this post:

Once you have a couple of currencies in your coin portfolio, the main problem becomes: how do you track your cryptocurrency portfolio?

I see this question asked in crypto-related Facebook groups and forums every single day.

Well, it’s pretty understandable as the more types of coins you own, the more difficult it gets.

Why?

Imagine: you hold 20 cryptocurrencies on 3 different exchanges + your hardware wallets such as TREZOR. Add in some trades here and there and you may get lost pretty quickly:

  • What is the total value of my whole portfolio? (in either USD or BTC)
  • How much $$$ have I made holding this coin?
  • If I sell xx amount of this coin today, will it be a gain or loss for me?

These are just 3 of the many questions that you will have to ask yourself once you start rolling with cryptocurrencies.

My CTR is either too low or too high: what’s the best CTR to have?

I noticed this question a few times this month on STM forums.

Two main problems people had were that:

  • their CTR was way too high = more people were clicking through the landing page than visiting the landing page
  • their CTR was very low = very few people were clicking through the landing page

I’m going to analyze both of these extremes and suggest solutions that might fix these problems.

8 things I’ve learned in 1 year as a full-time affiliate marketer

Today is exactly one year that I’ve been a full-time affiliate marketer.

Before, I was just trying out the affiliate marketing business, doing some of it here and there, but I finally made my decision to go full throttle near the end of last year.

I saved some money from my other businesses and told myself, “NOW is the time to make it WORK.”

I basically stopped doing everything else and gave affiliate marketing 100% of my FOCUS.

Along the way I learned a lot of useful things and skills.

I should mention that I’m not into teaching someone about something unless I’ve walked the path of that something myself.

That is mostly the reason why I haven’t posted much on my blog—I’m working hard on my campaigns every single day.

Now as I have gained some experience, I would like to share 8 tips with you that I’ve learned and I believe could add value to your daily business as an affiliate marketer.

Enjoy reading!

STM London meet-up & private mastermind case study

Hey, guys!

It’s been a while since my last post, and some of my subscribers have started mailing me and asking what happened and if I would have new posts.

I had three big things going on:

  • First, in March, I traveled across the world for the biggest affiliate meet-up in London, organized by StackThatMoney (STM).
  • Then, I spent three awesome weeks with my family back home in Slovakia, and I also managed some biz-related stuff as I’m still operating my affiliate business from the EU.
  • The rest of the time I was working my ass off on my campaigns.

…So my blog didn’t get the attention that I would’ve liked to give it, but finally I’m back!
