1st PPC Attempt And Made $300 I Explain All

92 replies
1st PPC campaign attempt £20.27 spent (from a £30 coupon so not my money) and a payout of $200 (they double on your 1st $100 so will get $300)... time to scale up and rinse and repeat... I think I can get to at least $100 profit a day pretty quickly..

What I did..

Search for an affiliate program or CPA offer that has a unique name and is searched over 1000 times a month (Google keyword tool)

use compete.com to see if the site is active over 3k visitors a month.

Make sure the offer allows PPC bidding on exact company/product name

sign up to promote.

Then promote on Bing Ads for keywords like:
product
product.com
product review
product coupon etc

to figure out my max CPC bid i just divided my pay out by 100 so if I was to get $30 pay out my max bid would be $0.30 my thinking is that after 100 clicks at least 1 will convert and I at least break even.

Hope this helps someone I'm still learning but think I will be killing it in a few months with PPC its a lot less headache than marketing my own info products lol

UPDATE: spend so far is $181.74 and my ROI is $700 so profit $518.26.... $618.26 if I include the bonus they owe me. I haven't touched this since I set it up just added more money...

    You could summarize this all up as follows: branded keywords.

    Works in some cases, fails horribly in others (i.e. trademarked terms).

      Like I said I am very new to the whole PPC thing and I was trying to add value to newbies to this space like myself... If I focused on failing horribly like you put I would never have taken action and would not have even had a chance to be profitable like I am today.

      If he just said that I wouldn't have a clue what he was talking about, actually I probably would have thought he was on about domain names, so much better how he put things.

        Scam is a definite yes for negative keywords. Fake, Complaint, Rip Off, and other keywords like those are a yes too
        Yeah just using that as an example but I'm looking at promoting downloadable products, memberships, CPA and Physical products as long as it fits my criteria... wish me luck

        May check out MSN adcenter when I completely get my head around Bing Ads, thanks for the heads up

            Can you direct link your CPA offers to the paid Bing adds?
            ( knowing Google AdWords policy does not allow it, i assumed that Bing terms are the same)

      It's nice to know that you follow on TV product PPC system

      http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...lse-doing.html

      What is the reason to repeat everything over and over again and more over saying it's you own "Creative Idea" This been allover the www (black/white) hat you name it.. You spend 20$ and get 300? Well try to repeat this couple of month and then report back, cause you going to find out pretty quickly that few days/week of data means nothing.. And I know you are talking about that exact method even "Negative" keywords are the same.. What is your point man??? Nick should sue you, for highjacking his idea/wso..

      P.S.

      Better keep "Focused" on getting those Free vouchers of Fiverr, that's the real source of your enjoyment
      pretty much, is in it?

          Yeah, right, instead 80% of them doesn't allow PPC at all and rest of 20%

          don't allow TTM betting, and you not only going to get booted, but booted hard

And yeah things could go tits up but that is life I am just sharing my results (why does that offend you)... I never said I made up this technique I said I learnt it like everything I do online and added my own twists because I haven't followed the TV money method exactly but that is what I learnt the concept from.

            Like I said the campaign I am running this on allows me to bid on the trade marked names I asked and yeah there is not many companies that allow it but there are companies that do and I think I have proven that..

            What is your problem... you come into a threat that was created to show people that taking action can get results and inspire to bring the mood down and slate me for no apparent reason. I hope you feel big and business is going great for you lol..

    That's a great achievement.

    After you paused all the keywords which weren't converting for your offer, how many keywords did you have left?

    Did you make a landing page to link the Ad to or did you just directly link to the offer URL?

    Great results you got there and it inspired me to try the Bing ads so thanks for that already have quite a few clicks less than 24hrs honestly I would never have thought of using Bing ads but it seems like a really good option for PPC traffic.

    Looking forward to get some conversions from this, hope you continue to have much more success with this.

      This is not an original technique. I'm sure there are 5 WSO's running at any given moment explaining this technique.

      As a matter of fact - there are probably 5 WSO's running explaining how to get a YouTube video ranked right now.

      And BTW - all this info was freely given away on this forum weeks and months ago for ranking youtube videos and making money with PPC.

      I used to do this on Google AdWords with ClickBank products. Then it got saturated and then AdWords dropped the hammer.

      Heck - I used to do this by SEO'ing a page for the product name - and then that fell apart too and I decided to build a real business online (that's worked out much better).

      The idea that this is a WSO "exclusive" is just retarded.

      Bidding on brand names and product names has been around for years. Some products allow it and other's don't.

      Hilarious.

      BTW - to the original poster. This isn't enough to make a living on. It's enough to get some spare change going but if you really want to do well in PPC you will be bidding on keywords, building lists, building out authority sites or expanding heavily into CPA.

      Sooner or later, the competition will come a chomping and the person who bids the most will win. This method will get saturated and I bet even Bing will get pissed off.

      Enjoy it while you can - and think of ways to diversify your income.

        BTW - to the original poster. This isn't enough to make a living on. It's enough to get some spare change going but if you really want to do well in PPC you will be bidding on keywords, building lists, building out authority sites or expanding heavily into CPA.

        Sooner or later, the competition will come a chomping and the person who bids the most will win. This method will get saturated and I bet even Bing will get pissed off.

        Enjoy it while you can - and think of ways to diversify your income.

    Hi,

    Thanks for sharing.

    Do you direct link to the offer or use some kind of landing page. If you're using a lander, what are you using?

    Thanks!

      I link directly to the offer mate. Thats why I like this method I haven't had to play around with all that stuff it was a quick set up and go.

      It is still profitable today. Just made another $100 this morning

      Think I need to kick my arse into gear and find more offers to set up.

      Its because I am in the UK and on bing ads my cost is in £ but when I get my commission checks it is in $'s and was too lazy to convert lol..

      Right now my spend is £100 (well I did just add an extra £55 but that is not being used yet) and my return has been $700 this campaign seems to be in a sweet spot and is paying me o auto pilot since I set it up I have not touched it.

      I may try other traffic methods to it.

      Just curious.

      1. It's been a few months. How is your investment to profits ratio looking?
      2. Do you have any ban problems using bing ads?
      3. The formula you mentioned. bid = sale / 100 to break even. Maybe I'm missing something, but if you're trying to break even how are you getting any ROI?

      Hey Jouvan,

      Looks like you conveniently missed my question How does this formula make you money. You say "to figure out my max CPC bid i just divided my pay out by 100 so if I was to get $30 pay out my max bid would be $0.30 my thinking is that after 100 clicks at least 1 will convert and I at least break even."

      As you said, you break even. How are you making profits?

        It was not conveniently missed lol.. I am not a PPC mentor or trying to sell you anything.

        That is used to find your max bid but I have actually been paying less and the offer converts better than 1%

        I just set it up this way so that I limit the chance of losing money. I hope this helps.

    @Jouvan - glad you are diversifying and ignoring the haters :-)

    And for those that are asking about Bing - yeah, it does allow affiliate links (actually AdWords does too - just very stringent) but they are getting tighter on quality control.

    I talked to support today and one of my ads was under editorial review. Turns out the sales page had a video that auto-started and they didn't like that.

    So you can do direct link affiliate promotions but you still need to understand the verbiage in the quality guidelines.

    Are you allowed to link directly to the offer, or is it against terms & conditions of most merchants?

    I think I might try to use MSN Adcenter and try to get some traffic to my review pages once they are up. Do you think this will convert?

    What I did..

    Search for an affiliate program or CPA offer that has a unique name and is searched over 1000 times a month (Google keyword tool)

    use compete.com to see if the site is active over 3k visitors a month.

    Make sure the offer allows PPC bidding on exact company/product name

    sign up to promote.

    Then promote on Bing Ads for keywords like:
    product
    product.com
    product review
    product coupon etc

    to figure out my max CPC bid i just divided my pay out by 100 so if I was to get $30 pay out my max bid would be $0.30 my thinking is that after 100 clicks at least 1 will convert and I at least break even.

    Hope this helps someone I'm still learning but think I will be killing it in a few months with PPC its a lot less headache than marketing my own info products lol

    UPDATE: spend so far is $181.74 and my ROI is $700 so profit $518.26.... $618.26 if I include the bonus they owe me. I haven't touched this since I set it up just added more money...
    I'm curious, was the offer you first used a cpa offer or a affiliate offer. I've been hunting, but not found a cpa offer that fits your criteria yet....
