Default A Small Basic Profitable PPV Campaign Revealed

The offer was BestQuotes.com - New Car Quotes - Pays $8.00 a Lead
The traffic source was Lead Impact
I used a simple landing page
I Picked keywords and URLs around buying cars

Here's the merchants page




Here's the first page of the keywords from Lead Impact that were used




The landing page was made to look very similar to the merchants page, just optimized for the PPV Window size.

The campaign was profitable during December but died off into January.

Very great share...So you said the landing page was made similar to the offer page. Does this mean it was just a simple click to the offer page.

I have seen similar where the landing page says something like "Attention Ford Visitor" You may be Approved for an Instant Loan Click Here to Apply...

Yes, it mirrored the landing page of the merchant, in this campaign I just kept it simple. You can do many things to increase the ctr like call out the visitors location, call our the target, etc

The merchant didn't update there homepage and left December holiday deals on there so I believe that may have played a roll

Roi ended up being around 20-25%, profit was just over $100 after everything (pausing non-converting targets, etc).

I'm sure that it could have gotten better if the lp was better optimized and different backend offers were tested

Nice share Chris

however 20% ROI is a little low, I look for 50% bare minimum to keep a campaign going

I agree, I'm sure with most testing and optimization this could have gone up, I just didn't take it any further due to the rapid drop of conversions in jan

When I start any campaign I look for anything above breakeven. To me that means it has legs. Then after a while if it's a tiny ROI, I drop it and move on. However if after tweaking I can get it up there, I keep it running.

Whoa...you're missing out on a lot of money then! Some of my biggest net profit campaigns have been around 20-30% ROI. You have to think in terms of volume.

you got 25% of ROI with a $8USD payout offer?
did you spend $80 and earned $100 is that fair to say?
how many days did you went along with this particular campaign?
thanks for sharing

btw what hoting and tracking app do you use for LP?
i know for a fact PPV traffic can be fast and a proper hosting and tracking in place is mandatory, any insights?

Whatever your mind can conceive and BELIEVE you can achieve

Yes, I agree I never leave money on the "table" I've had plenty of smaller campaigns that I use to pay my bills month to month.

BTW great share Chris, I really shows not to over think things much, keep things simple, and test.

For leadimpact..
If you bid on .google.com - you will only get traffic for google.com
If you bid on google.com - you will get traffic from any url that ends in google.com, examples: ilikegoogle.com, timetogoogle.com, getgoogle.com, google.com, etc
