        He means you should do both (at least I think you should do both). You should have a landing page between your add and the clickbank offer

        A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

    It's not a good idea to direct link because the conversion rate is very poor. Recently, I spent about $200 on direct linking to CB and only had 2 sales for a total of about $42. It took about 700 clicks to make 1 sale.

    The poor results might also have something to do with the fact that Bing ads recently changed their ad targeting so your ads are served to smartphone and tablet users by default. You can set smartphone targeting to -100% so your ads are only served to desktop and tablet users, but I only found out about this until later.

    You can make money via direct linking, but I don't know anyone who is getting consistent results from it as there is obviously an element of luck involved based on who happens to click your ad, whether it's someone willing to whip out plastic and buy or someone just looking for free information.

      Well said. I am not big into PPC and have hardly any experience with it, so maybe I'm not the best person to comment on this. However, I do have a lot of experience with list building and I firmly believe that a marketer's list is his/her most valuable business asset, and this has always led me to believe that any traffic that you pay for should always be sent to a lead capture page.

      If you direct link and you get a click to the sales page in most cases the visitor is going to click away as soon as they realize that they are being sold something. However, if a visitor lands on a page that is offering to give them the information they were looking for for free in exchange for their email address, I think they are far more likely to cooperate.

      For me it's about always giving before you ask for the sale. You want to give them a healthy amount of knowledge on their chosen subject, but at the same time you don't want to spill all the beans, because then there will be nothing left to sell them.

      It really is a fine line between content and promotion. Some say 50/50 works, yet others say 25/75 works. Really, you need to find that line for yourself because every list is comprised of different people, thereby making every list unique.

      I think you need to stop direct linking and start sending your PPC traffic to a really targeted, well designed lead capture page. It might be worth it to spend a little money upfront to hire a designer and a copywriter to put your page together for you. If you want to achieve a positive ROI, there are a lot of factors that must not only be considered, they must be set up perfectly. Simply throwing up a landing page and hoping for the best will not only fail, it will probably cost you quite a bit of money.

      Isolate your target market, and think about what they would find really helpful and informative and set up your squeeze page to offer that to them. After they have become your subscriber, then comes the next stage. It's all about remaining helpful while at the same time convincing them that the paid products/services you are recommending to them will be very beneficial to them. Give them great content, promote reliable products that you would use yourself, and develop a real relationship with your subscribers.

      If you can do this, I have no doubt you will see success.
