I have been a web marketer for 10+ years mainly SEO. PPC and now slowly getting it Social.
I wanted to start learning and doing affiliate marketing and I joined several platforms such as Clickbank and others. As I was looking at the programs I wanted to represent I see that all of these vendors have that I cannot do PPC based on there Trade Names. So if the vendor is selling product "XZ" I cannot do any ppc on Google for the keyword "XZ". Now I have no problem with that whatsoever, however when I do a Google search for "xz" I see several ads coming up in position 1 and 2 and sometimes even 3 on Googles page.What the vendor did was by additional domains and did PPC and targeted "xz" as a keyword.
I am now getting annoyed, I am spending time, doing research to market this product and it seems this vendor has dominated Google. I now wondering if I should even bother to promote there product or not?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
