    1. You'll probably get very low volume and lower quality traffic if you bid .5. Since you will be lower on the page, and this will slow down testing. I like to bid higher and complete testing asap.

    2. Commit to spending a set amount of money testing.

    3. I've never tested dating with 7Search.

    1. It's a tough one, it depends on the bid price, niche, volume, etc. I normally start by trying to position myself between 2nd to 1st, let it run and see how much traffic I get and if it's profitable

    2. Set a budget for your campaign and stop once you hit it. Also make sure you track your keywords and pause any non converting ones

    3. The challenge with dating on 7search is you will likely be competing against people running adult dating and adult offers

    Here is some clarification on 2.

    You set a budget to test. When I test campaigns, I know 99% of the time they will NOT be profitable. When you are testing, you are looking for the viability of a campaign. Do my ad copies get a good CTR? Do people click through my landing page if I'm using one? Is the offer converting consistently?

    During this process, the campaign doesn't need to be profitable, but it needs to show some resemblance to a campaign that could get profitable. If I see the offer is converting at 1 out of 20 clicks consistently, but I'm still spending more than that to get it, I know there are things I could possibly do to improve the campaign such as test more ad copies to look for a higher CTR/better converter, optimize keywords that aren't converting, look into more details on who is converting (are people in west coast states converting better than east coast states? I shouldn't target east coast if I see that pattern).

    So, set yourself a budget you are comfortable testing with (will probably be a minimum of $100 for a campaign payout of around $5, I budget around $500 - $1000 for new campaigns), and look for those patterns, track everything, optimize, then double that previous budget and if things don't improve, you may have already hit the limit on the campaign and should drop it if you are getting uncomfortable with your current spend.

    Always go into a campaign knowing you will lose money off the bat. If you don't have that mindset, you're going to be stressed, frustrated, and probably quit.
