I ran with a blog that got kind of big about a year ago, and the blog, while still up, did nothing for me, absolutely nothing, well, next to nothing, as close to nothing as you can get. $1,000 later, and 1 sale.
That was then;
I start over, this year, thinking I finally had a grasp on what I was doing, and knowing some of the mistakes to avoid, and the strategies to use, etc, etc, etc...
Now, while working on a micro budget, I have simply more questions than when I first started.
So, now, I simply have a series of questions, and I'd like to know if anyone out there, in the great competition nexus of CPP advertising and Internet Marketing, can toss me a bone and somehow, guide me to some semblance of sanity.
When do I use a squeeze page? For every campaign? or only specific ones, and which ones?
When do should I use a comparison site, vs a straight up sales letter? And should I put a squeeze page up before a comparison site?
Should I track my keywords at the domain level with a php script, or use adwords "destination url" feature. Don't the two compete with each other?
Where can I find a mentor? what could I expect to pay them, and what can I expect to get from them?
How much time do I put into a site?
I am from the belief that too much information is a killer, but yet I find myself obsessing over what to do next, and because of the fact that I am only a micro budget, having to wait up to 3 weeks to be able to act upon my plans, only to have those carefully laid out plans be ignored in an impulse of terrified clicks to start a paused campaign, only to watch the few hundred dollars I had set aside, vanish in clicks that resulted in neither a list, or commissions.
I have 2 sites up right now;
Both of these have been retired, and are being left to the SEO gods and winds.
I guess I'm out of questions, for the moment, and I understand this is more of a rant than a post, but at this point, my head has stopped hurting at least a little, and I look forward to see what, if any advice I can gather.
Thank you in advance, if this makes any sense, then you, sadly, have been where I am.
