24 replies
I want to get into advertising but need a little help so i don't waste all my money. I have an affiliate account with adultfriendfinder and was thinking about using trafficjunky not really sure if it will convert or not. The affiliate account i have is a percentage account. Would that work good with PPC. If anyone has any knowledge to give me on this topic i would really appreciate it. Just post here or pm me your Skype.

    There are hundreds of threads asking what to do with $X so maybe if you read some of them, you may get good answers. Until then I would recommend not spending a cent until you know what you're doing.

    Trafficjunky is a CPM ad network, you are charged for impressions, not clicks. This means you have to test a lot of banners to find ones with very good click-through rate, otherwise you will end up spending your entire budget for few clicks. Buying CPM traffic to promote CPS offers is not for newbies, it requires experience and large budgets. Go for CPC traffic and CPA offers.

    Btw, if $300 is a lot of money for you, I'd suggest to use free traffic...

      Do you have any suggestions for CPC traffic networks for the adult niche then?

    Can you use Bing , Facebook or 7search ads in the adult niche?

    Honestly, by the sounds of it, you should probably do some heavy digging and get pretty familiar with a specific traffic source and monetization path...and once you know that, THEN start throwing money at campaigns.

    Even if you purchase a reputable WSO (no idea what good CPA WSOs are out there now or if there are any good ones floating around or not), you need a base understand and need to have a more specific strategy in mind before you start anything.

    My two cents at least.

    Good luck...everybody starts where you are so use that as motivation to kick butt

    You can I believe on 7Search, but not Facebook or Bing Ads.

    I agree with Kenster... start flipping throw some threads and see what others are doing... and find some thing that appeals to you. Then dive info that CPA strategy further. Good Luck.

    Or you could always just ask me Joking aside, adult traffic is rough and tough to make work with PPC. You're much better off going with Adwords combined with the traditional mainstream CPL/CPA markets. Although I'm going to be biased, my all time favourite racket is the financial lead gen market. But anything that pays per lead will be much more profitable if you combine it with solid PPC.

    Any questions just fire away

      I seriously doubt that, the ROI would be 600% - but then again I'm happy to be proven wrong Care to share some tips? You can always PM me of course, I'd be more than willing to share some of my campaigns in return if you wanted?

        I agree with nick.

        600% in PPC / CPC is unheard of, unless you are selling some miricle cream LOL.

        Most of the time, every dollar we spend on PPC, or paid traffic technically we get back 2:1 or 3:1 sometimes. But the big time marketers do not use free traffic, or all the junk, they know real power is in paid advertising and upscaling.

          For any mass scale campaign I would agree. I've certainly seen ROIs like that on campaigns but then as you scale and grab wider and wider audiences, margins generally narrow and narrow.

          But yes, large campaigns very rarely see multiples like that.

            Yes Ken! There are times when you do hit the jackpot so to speak. And do get the good audiences. Testing is a big thing.

            600% sounded a bit fake, I am not accusing, just saying its a bit suss, but if its a real stat, then good work!!.

    If you got any help so far that's good because knowing is very important now days. One important tip like many told already is to read and inform about what is actually PPC, how you can use, how to set up. Don't expect to be an expert overnight BUT at least you are aware how to use it and what to expect from it.

    If you need some help and consultancy I am here too!
    Cheers,
    Matt

    I've done well promoting on BuySellAds.com. I think this is one of the best places to spend money for ads. But for certain niches it's more expensive, and thus a PPC network such as Bing network may fit your needs.

    I'll be honest, I've never been more impressed than with Bing's advertising network.

    Thanks

    I already tryed Traffic junkie and it's really junk traffic. It doesn't convert very well for me. This network show your ads on sex video website. the problem is all these user want everything for free they don't want to spend money so i will not recommand this network.

    Let me know if you have success with them.
