Dear Experienced & Successful Internet Marketers,

I have around 300 USD at Microsoft adCenter. I want to make best use of it. At first I tried my luck with adworkmedia. I saw their french niche offers pay well. I made a doorway type wordpress site and run campaign but didn't get traffic at all. Yes I don't know french so I searched for relevant keyword through google translator. Seems that it will not be a profitable campaign.

Next I tried 2 weight loss trial offers from Peerfly. Those were:
  1. Vimax Detox Trial International
  2. Raspberry Ketone International

In both offers it is written that All Countries accepted EXCEPT: US, UK, ZA and IN

So I ran the campaign in Canada, Australia,France & Denmark. So far I have spent 34.12 USD and got 150 clicks but no one paid for trial offers. I have used optinlink plugin. So when anyone clicks at link they have to submit email first. In that way I only got 5 email addresses out of 150 clicks.

Then I tried 1 potty training product from clickbank but hardly get any traffic. I targeted USA people in this case. I guess I may have to higher up my bids to get more traffic.

Now I am in complete helpless situation. None of my campaigns are working as I thought. Please suggest me some offers from some network that may work best in bing ppc. I really need your advice guys.

    You can search for a good affiliate program to run. However I would recommend you to have at least around $500 before you start with PPC in order not to lose your money.

    Are you sending traffic directly to the offer or to your own landing page first? Normally you won't get a profitable conversion rate going from a PPC ad to the merchant's site, unless they have a great offer!

    CPA is basically trial and error, so you need plenty of patience (and budget) to get something going.

    So you're basically paying about $.23 per click in Bing. That sounds like a good CPC if your particular keywords are competitive. BUT...the CPC isn't the problem.

    The problem is the fact that you haven't converted any of the visitors into buyers, right?

    Your issue COULD be your ad
    . That's the very first thing I would check. Does your ad describe the offer effectively, so that you aren't paying for wasted (un-targeted) clicks to the offer?

    I think your method of direct-linking to the offer is good because you don't have any proven conversions to warrant building a landing page. Once you get some conversions, then you should look into creating a landing page to pre-sell. That way you aren't wasting time for a campaign that may not work.

    -------

    Also your keywords can be an issue. Are your keywords related to the offer and do they actually convey what the visitors would actually be searching for IF they are looking for weight-loss products? Seems like you are getting some good clicks, but what's your CTR?

    I think that your CTR could help determine if your ad is effective and/or if your keywords are properly chosen.

    Generally speaking:
    High CTR = Interest in your ad
    Low CTR = Your ad possibly isn't relevant to their search query/interest.

    I use Bing myself and there are pretty good click prices, but I find the volume to be a problem. To get around that, I spend a LOAD of time just keyword hunting to compensate for the lower (daily) volume.

    Maybe you can do that to hone in on keywords (eventually) which will give you the conversions you want, possibly with fewer clicks. You can even "spy" on big players in your industry to get ideas that may work for you.

    ----

    Have you typed your keywords into Bing and then checked out the ads that come up? So you know what you're competing against and why your ads may or may not get the response you want....

    Feel free to PM me if you want to bounce ideas around. I don't do the health niche but I promote Peerfly stuff, and I have a decent strategy to test campaigns on Bing for pretty cheap. :-)

    On bing ads you can promote clickbank weight loss product. But always keep in mind almost 99% ads campaign start with Negative ROI and you have the data and then you need to optimize your campaign. By losing your money you actually buying data which will help you to optimize your campaign.

    Thanks

    Neither. You should run auto insurance or home improvement.

      Agreed - I would also suggest to look into all other forms of insurance (income, life, house, pet, health), any kind of loan products and also debt management. These usually have the highest payouts and are all lead based products so no CC is required to get a commission
