Thought I would post this, maybe it will help someone :-)
Signed up with 7search with $100 and they put in $75 so $175 ready to go.
Signed up with several Networks and started my first campaign.
First 1 a rebill in the skincare niche but the LP was a bit suspect so
paused it. 5 clicks Cost 0.43c.
Launched Campaign 2 with 2 Ads (to test copy)
Ad 1- 536 Clicks Cost $19.65- Conversions 1 @ $5.85
I made a crucial error here, 1 Keyword Cost $14.65 and it was such a broad Keyword it was getting clicks from everywhere, should have killed it earlier.
Ad 2 -754 Clicks- Cost $63.93 - Conversions 10 @ $5.85 = $58.85
Was getting to the bidding limit but hadn't any conversions since 25th Jan so with advice decided to Pause it.
Campaign No 3.
Email submit (Paused by advertiser) UK NETWORK
Again did 2 Ads - 198 Clicks - Cost $8.92 - Conversions 10 @ £1.10 = £11
which works out at about $17.60
Oh and with this 1 I was having trouble with tracking so I didn't even know I had made some conversions. Big mistake !!
Campaign No 4 launched 2 days ago
28 Clicks - Cost $5.51 - No Conversions
Campaign No 5 Launched 2 days ago
4 Clicks - Cost $0.35c - Conversions 1 @ $2.50
SO overall for 2 of my 6 Months the Statistics are:
Total Campaigns = 5
Total Clicks = 1525
Total Cost = $ 98.75
Total Revenue = $ 84.45
Total Loss = $ 14.30
Well that isn't really a loss because it has actually paid for 2 Months Practical Education in CPA. I have clicks and conversions, I have statistics that I can work with. Not bad eh!
I have made some bad errors, but I have learnt from them. Especially the Tracking, I need to study this more
it's vital for success.
OK so any comments would be appreciated Thanks
