Saudi Arabia and VPNs

In Saudi Arabia, internet censorship is prevalent, with various websites and online services being blocked by the government. This makes it difficult for individuals and businesses to access online content and services freely.

VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) have become an essential tool for many people in Saudi Arabia to bypass internet restrictions and access content that would otherwise be unavailable. A VPN encrypts the user’s internet traffic and routes it through a server in a different country, effectively masking their online activity and allowing them to access content and services unavailable in their location.

The importance of VPNs in Saudi Arabia has only grown in recent years, with more and more people relying on them to access the internet securely and without restrictions.

A brief explanation about affiliate networks, ad networks and offers

Affiliate marketing is a performance-based marketing strategy where an advertiser (merchant) pays a commission to an affiliate (publisher) for driving a specific action, such as a sale, lead, or click-through to the advertiser’s website.

The affiliate promotes the advertiser’s products or services through various channels, such as a website, blog, social media, or email marketing.

Online ad networks, on the other hand, are platforms that connect advertisers with publishers, enabling them to buy and sell ad inventory.

Ad networks act as intermediaries, aggregating ad inventory from multiple publishers and offering it to advertisers. Advertisers can use ad networks to reach a larger audience and target their ads based on specific criteria, such as location, demographics, interests, or behavior.

In affiliate marketing, online ad networks can be a powerful tool for publishers to monetize their traffic and earn commissions from promoting affiliate offers. Ad networks provide publishers access to various advertisers, suggestions, and advanced targeting and optimization tools to maximize their earnings.

At the same time, advertisers can use ad networks to reach relevant audiences and increase their conversions while only paying for actual results.

Campaign targeting tips:

Here are a few helpful tips that will allow you to scale your campaigns when conversions start pouring in quickly. 

  1. Create a campaign per each operating system you target: this will allow you to dive deeper into each campaign, as different operating systems can provide you with different payouts and conversion rates. Dividing your offer into two campaigns will allow you faster report analysis and a better optimization mechanism. 
  2. Check the app size: when promoting severely ‘heavier’ apps, meaning the length is over 100MB, marketers should consider targeting WiFi traffic as users may consider their 3G pack before downloading anything that may affect their phone bill. 
  3. Create a localized landing page: use your audience language and your offer’s brand colors to sync better what your page shows and where the user lands once he goes through it. 
  4. Rotate landing page: A/B test your creatives and keep improving as users may see your ad more than once.
