Can I do this?

by Brando95 7 replies
So I just got an idea that I assume is not possible because it seems far too easy. Could I pay $1 a click to send PPC traffic to my site that redirects to another where I get $2 per lead?

    Yes people do it all the time.

    Gather their email address, then send them to a PPL offer

    If they don't 'bite' on that offer...

    There's always more to recommend through broadcasts and followups

      I like the sound of that much better. The more I read this forum the more email marketing sounds absolutely amazing

    You are assuming that the conversion rate of that traffic to the landing page is high enough to make money... I think you are thinking the conversion rate is 100% therefore making you $2 for every $1 click you buy...

    You are better off building your own list, and redirecting the thank you page link through a PPL offer link where you get a small amount per lead, which can cover your ad spend and then your profits come from emails sent in the future...

      No I just didn't think there was even a conversion rate. I misunderstood PPL and thought that I got $2 for every person I sent to their website whether they signed up or not.

      Ok so how does this sound

      1. Make 1-3 kickass videos using fiverr gigs and put them on a bunch of tube sites
      2. Put my link in the description
      3. Link leads to squeeze page
      4. Thank you page redirects to PPL offer
      5. Email them useful content and then send more offers

        Yes that can definately work, just make sure you have an entire funnel in place with a bunch of PPL programs which pay $0.50 - $2.50. Then send traffic to your squeeze page and your autoresponder will do the rest.

        I think it's best to try free methods though to drive traffic first, then you'll know how your funnel converts and how much you can spend to make a profit. After that you can test PPC campaigns and if they turn profitable you can scale easily and earn on autopilot.

          By funnel does that mean the series of emails leading up to my sales pitch?

    If you can get the $2 for only click, you can also paid $1 for any one to click. Therefor you have a balance. of course you can carry on this business, but first of all you must ensure that you are getting $2 for per visitor.
