My first ppc and ppv campaign case study

38 replies
hello,
I have started my cpa journey and luckily i got around 50% ROI !.I am grateful to warrior members and some other personal blog like lukepeerfly,kjrocker,selman.us,cpafix. And special thanks to Maxbounty and 7search, They really rocks I have got positive ROI even with no tracking!!!!!.

What i have done is very simple.

PPC PART:

I have selected some high converting email submit , dating offer and some other one page submit offer.

Till now i got 3618 clicks , 71 conversion $151.40 total earnings, $0.04 EPC and i have spent $92 in 7search.So total profit is almost $60

Now i need to scale it up and for this i Believe i must track everything.I am asking some help from you regarding this.Earlier i read lukepeerfly blog and I understand very clearly how to track with subid, keyword, affid and i applied in peerfly but Unfortunately Charlie DENIED my application so i moved to maxbounty and got accpeted.But Maxbounty don't have the same tracking system as peerfly has.

So i think i need 3rd party software like prosper 202. but i am not familiar with that.Anyone can give me some video tutorial how to install prosper 202 and track everything?

PPV PART:

Just yesterday created my first campaign in Leadimpact. campaign name was Super Free Slot Games and unfortunately i got 313 clicks, 0 no conversion ,$0.00 earnings ,$0.00 EPC AND i have spent $5.1.So here i am looser

I used direct link, but everybody is suggesting to use landing page. But i don't have idea how landing page should be.Can anybody help me to show me a sample?Should ppv landing page have different size?or any other specific criteria?

Please keep suggesting and reading this thread.......hopefully many newbie will get proper guideline to start their journey into CPA..

    Hey Bro Congrats.
    This is a great achievement.
    And dont worry about Peerfly, Its not even that great. Its a starter network.
    at your stage, i would go with Actual Networks. And Maxbounty is awesome too..

    And Congrats.


    FOR PPV:

    USE A LANDER.
    I cant stress that enough and seriously stop worrying about peerfly.
    There are many many more awesome networks way better than Peerfly.
    I am saying this as I have also faced this. i make more than 12k a month and I was denied and I was really down, then I discovered other networks and Peerfly is childs play then.

    SO dont worry about that.
    And I am willing to give you a referral into EWA and SocietyInvite if you want.
    PM me

    P.S.. According to me C2M is awesome. And they dont need a referral.
    And for that I would thank Luke as he insisted me on joining EWA and C2M to show him proof of earnings with them and I am Damn Satisfied now.
    Thanks Luke

      Not sure if that is sarcastic or not, but either way, you're welcome You should definitely hit me up about getting your PeerFly account turned on so you can split test some of our offers and see how "childs play" our network really is

        Nah..Thanx
        One of my JV partner has a peer fly account.
        I checked it out.
        Its not something that would interest me.
        With child play I didn't mean anything offensive..:p
        I just meant its for newcomers in the industry not the top affiliates.

        Not a loser, just haven't spend enough yet. You need at least $20-25 worth of data to start analyzing. If you can post more details about your campaign - targets, creatives, etc. I'll try and help you out.

    Good start. spending 5 bucks isnt enough. you need to spend 2 or 3 times the payout to get some data bro. if you have 50+ url, 5 bucks ain't going to give you much data. few url will eat your budgets.

        For the PPV part - it's not even close to enough to start analyzing anything. It's also your first campaign so it doesn't mean you are a loser. Some people struggle for months and take risks of few thousand dollars before they see any decent profit so don't get discouraged because of 5 bucks - you can't play the PPV game if you are afraid to lose money!

        I really suggest you to build at least 5 other campaigns in few verticals to see what vertical you are conforable with and where you it's easier for you to profit because everyone is different. Some people make killing with dating offers but I spent more then 500$ and got back around 50-60$ with absolutely no profitable targets. -> that was just an example.

        My point is - Test, Test, Test! The more testing you doing the more expirience and knowledge you get!

        For PPC - congrats Where you promote the offer?

          yes, i know and understand $5 bucks is not enough to take the decision.But what i understand is direct linking won't be profitable as i got almost 350 clicks but no conversion.So i need to make landing page and test different verticals. And for ppc i am using 7search.

    what ppv network do you use?
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6380844].message }}

    Hello, I was truly inspired by it. When I first got into CPA, I started right away with 7Search, and ran credit report offers, targeting the keyword "credit report" (I can only laugh at what I used to do) surprisingly enough, I made $125 from $25 that day! It was a great day. Then I attempted to do the same, went all in, and lost it all.... That was 5 months ago, I got very scared and quit....

    Now I want to start with 7Search again

    I was just wondering how you're doing with 7Search, and if you can recommend any networks to me, besides 7Search or if I should just run with them and try new offers.

    man you killed it bro. i never knew you could get that much volume on 7Search. i am having a nice ROI but the volume is an issue for me...on 7Search that is. keep it up...
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6382351].message }}
  • Profile picture of the author Matthew NY
    Volume is tough to keep going on 7Search, but that is why it's important to not only scale within the platform you're working in, but outwards to other similar platforms. If it works on 7Search, it could be working on other PPC networks! Don't stop here, and realize that in order to begin to see the tremendous earnings, you must not stop growing your campaigns.

      Hey Matt,

      I just wanted to let you know that I am really looking for a coach to help me increase my earnings with PPC. I saw your "Coaching Offer" and I'm def interested.

      I have a good amount of money to spend on advertising but I don't need a course. I need someone to "SHOW" instead of tell. I am really interested in your offer. If you are still offering it send me a PM with your email so we can dialogue.

      I want to tell you how much I have to spend on advertising but I want to keep it on the low. It's 4 figures tho. Anyways just PM me your email so we can dialogue to see if we are a match.

      If so, lets get this thing going...

    Great job man! A positive ROI campaign right off the bat, nothing wrong with that at all!

    You need to TRACK EVERYTHING THO I personally recommend Prosper202 (because its free). Also I suggest going with a host that supports 202 such as "BeyondHosting" They will set everything up for you. Talk to Tyler and get set up on a VPS+ Prosper202 and you will be set.

    We run have run 100k uniques/day through a VPS there for the past year with no downtime or speed quality issues.

    Most of the time PPC campaigns do not port well to PPV, you need to understand the visitors who are viewing the PPV ads and tweak your promo to match. DEFINITELY use a landing page when running PPV traffic, Also you want to make that Lander as dynamic as possible calling out as much unique data that you can pull, URL/Keyword/Country/State/City/ even IP address ;-) Make the visitor feel as if the Popup is "specifically for them".

      This has always been a very strong PPV technique, as it can be customized to any current events and will never be outdated. Once the trend has passed simply change the question, and pictures and you have another strong campaign.

      One note I may add, is once they select their choice, do not send directly to a CPA offer, instead switch to an optin form with some fake results and tell them they have a chance to collect a "valuable" prize, by signing up below. Once you get their info, then redirect to a CPA offer ;-)

        agreed, assuming your CPA offer is not an email submit.. but that aside, it takes creativity as the example w3bTools described to make all of this work.

          Even better if your CPA offer is a email sub. You grab their email add to your list, then pre-pop an offer email already filled out. And then exit pop another ;-)

        From reading this post I can understand one thing - you probably have a very little expirience. You run free credit score offer and quit after 8 bucks? This is one of the toughest markets there, very profitable but requires more skills and budget. This kind of campaign needs much, much more data before you can "see" anything. If I would run Credit Score campaign (I don't because I don't think I can compete there right now and prefer another vertical) I would give it at least 100$ (I know that these offers pay around 25$+) and only then decide to quit it.

        My advice is (if you feel you can take on this market and want to stick to it) to do much more research about the niche, maybe read some case studies if you can find and be ready to compete with some skilled marketers out there.

        I also guess you bid minimum on every target, so be aware that converting targets in this market can be very expensive and if you bid minumum then you probably didn't get any traffic from them and all your traffic right now comes from non converting targets. If you bid minimum and you are the first bidder on your targets, then I can guarantee 99% your targeting is wrong.

    Hello, guys!

    What about Clickbank?
    I'm trying to promote a Clickbank offer using Bing Ads.

    70$ invested - 130$ gain. It's profit, but I have doubts... (600 hops and only 5 sales + 1 upsell)

    Could you tell me, what others PPC or PPV networks can I use for Clickbank offers? To be honest, I'm newbie in CPA.

    Thanks
