I just got my first check from ewa for about $400 and want to use it to get into paid traffic. I know some people will spend more than that in a day but its all i have to spend. what is the best way to test and get into profit with paid traffic? what is the best platform, facebook? If I go with face book does any one know where i can buy vouchers that I can apply more than 1 per account? like if i bought 3 100 dollar vouchers could I apply them all to one account? thanks

    Well what you were doing to generate the $400 check? How was your ROI? Were you in the green? If so, maybe you should focus on the methods you used and look to scale..

    I agree with Stephen, but if you want to take the paid route I think that FB is a good bet. Campaigns have a shorter life there in comparison with other platforms, but you have 3 very good compensations:

    1. Fast results - it's easier and faster to turn a positive ROI on FB than on any other platform.

    2. Recycle your campaigns - Often times you can use the same ads to promote different offers, so you create a campaign and end up using it multiple times.

    3. Go international - Many times you can sclae your campaigns to other countries. If you have winning ads you can just find offers for other countries and do much more volume.

    So if you don't have a lot of money to spend and need relatively fast results I think that FB is your best bet.

        IMO, PoF is a bit different. Now, you need to be very specific there, target very specific interests and use very specific landers (e.g. women looking to get married, young men looking for mature women, etc...). Also, I think that it's easier to start with UK and CA. They don't have consistent traffic from other countries, so these are the international options there.

      It depends on the offer you would be promoting.

      FB traffic is display traffic, not search, so it tends to work best for low user-commitment offers like leadgen, or for info-product offers with lots of pre-selling.

      On the other hand, if your offer has lots of targeted searches on Google, then AdWords is probably the best place to start for you.

    The statement was kind of vague to be honest. You have some money and want to start buying traffic. Ok so now what?

    What we find with most pubs is that they just want to start doing something without a solid plan. Just because you have $400 that doesn't make you ready to start running ppc->cpa campaigns. Think of it as a new business that relates to your old business but is different. Go out and do as much research as possible on 1 traffic source and 1 vertical you want to run on that traffic source.

    Once you've done all your homework and research. Followed what's running consistently which mean it must be working. Then start spending a couple bucks getting started testing things.

    The $400 is just a mere tool that enables you to buy traffic. I'd really be focused on becoming a good marketer and less focused on trying to save a buck through vouchers or whatever. That same time you spend on that could be spent on reading marketing material and learning. No big marketer uses vouchers

    Thomas,

    Test small portions. You have to be careful buying traffic from media or search engines. In addition, don't listen to what your affiliate managers say. They know nothing about buying media and traffic (they do only to an extent). Some of them (not all of them) will tell you whatever to get you to promote an offer. I am telling you this because I don't want you to get discouraged.

    A lot of affiliate companies will buy media in house for their clients. Thus, the affiliate managers look at the stats thinking it's an affiliate offer. However they don't know it's be managing in house. The will buy media from high traffic powered sites. You'll think it's an affiliate buying that traffic because of the affiliate URL's. Don't assume an offer is profitable based on that. Go with your own instincts.

    Stay away from using coupons. Just get some money and test. Your going to lose some money. I spent tons through pay per click before I became profitable. I lost a lot in the beginning. It took me almost two years to find a profitable campaign. When I did I was generating profits around $40,000 per month between a client and I.

    Hi Thomas,

    $400 is enough cash to get you started with facebook. But, there are certain points that you need to know:

    1. As it has been noted by "smaxor" , before you get in into facebook ads, I recommend that you have a very sold plan . So, if you are not good at facebook, first you need to study and master it. Then , you can design a plan on how to get the most with the budget you have on hand

    2. As you have tight budget, you need to create a small and highly specific campaigns which have a small daily budget.

    3. The safest way to start facebook ad is to start by analyzing ads which are already tested or proven to work. So, I highly recommend that you spy affiliates who are promoting CPA offers. This way, you would be able to get hint on how to get started successfully.

    Hope it helps.
