How did I do it?
You have to focus on one campaign at a time, until that campaign is profitable & then scale up across multiple platforms once that campaign is successful. And you maximize that campaigns potential until you can't anymore.
Build your campaigns slowly, trying to do to much to soon will lead to un-profitable campaigns and that is just not fun. "Don't be afraid to go paid" often you can get started advertising offers for as little as $25 bucks.
Simply build your campaign one keyword at a time if you don't want to loose that much, watch and see what that keyword does and then add more as you go to minimize your loss.
This journey has not been easy by any stretch of the imagination, I still have challenges I'm facing personally but I'm trying my best. And that is all you can do in this world is try your best.
I've had to also spend $1000.00 before I started realizing what works but don't be intimidated, you can learn from my mistake and only promote 1 offer at a time, one keyword at a time if you have a big or small budget.
I hope this posts helps you guys, and I look forward to sharing more with the forum.
