How I Made $700 yesterday with Clickbank

106 replies
Hi all,

I want to share with everyone a little "test" i made yesterday which worked great. If you are into PPC advertising or affiliate marketing pay close attention to what I did.

This is exactly How I made $700 yesterday (Nov.16, 2008)

You can copy my ads or do whatever you like, It was just a test in the MMO niche, (I will not use these specific ads anymore)

I made $700 profit with just 2 adwords ads and 2 clickbank products.

My Secret: the current recession is making people desperate buyers!
I spent around $125 on each Adwords campaign. (Daily budget was set at $300 for each campaign) and the only 2 keywords I used were the phrase keywords "make money online" and "make money internet".


AD #1 (I targeted the US only)

Recession Proof Business
Build your own $40,000/month
Recession Proof Online Business
www.yourownwebsite.com

Clickbank product used for this ad: Ewen Chia's Internet Wealth
(xxxx.chiaewen.hop.clickbank.net)



AD#2 (I targeted the UK only)

Recession Proof UK
Build your own £40,000/month
Recession Proof Online Business
www.yourownwebsite.com

Clickbank product used for this ad: Xtreme UK
(xxxx.richwahm.hop.clickbank.net)


As you can see, both ads are almost identical except for the 2nd ad (notice the £ gbp sign and "UK" at the end of the title). Both ads display 5 figure amounts, which is very attractive and makes people click. Overall, the 2nd ad performed better as it is a product targeted at the uk specifically, but the US ad did it's job.

I hope this post was useful to some, remember that PPC is dangerous if you don't monitor your campaigns every hour or so.

    Did you net $700.00 after the $300 ad spend?
    Thanks for the post.

    You mean you got about $1,000 in sale so minus off your the amount you spent on adwords - profit is $700 right?

    How much did you bid for each keyword and which position were you occupying?

    Search network, content network or placement targeted?

    Sorry for asking so many questions.. I would really love to know..

      Max bid was set at $0.85 and the avg. cost per click was $0.42 with an avg position of 4. Search network and content network only.

        It's quite impossible for your ACPC to be half your max bid. The maximum your ACPC can be 90% your max bid.

        Did you see wrongly?

      You need a Landing page with good keywords (to get high quality score, hence lower ppc cost) and a BIG "Click Here to learn more" button (red preferably)

      Sorry but I won't share my landing page.

      Hint: just put the BIG red button and don't put any other link in the landing page. You need people to click your BIG red button! How Big? about 420 x 375 pixels.

    When you go to make a new campaign and you need to put your display url and your destination url; in the display box put what ever you want usually a keyword or something, then in the destination box put your in your affiliate link. When somebody clicks on it they will be directed to your affiliate site. Hope this helps.

        Someone who makes 3x that amount from organic traffic can abandon ppc ads like that.

    This is about the best kind of tip that you'll find around here.

    In a sea of article marketing and backlink building (which I do as well don't get me wrong) this is a firecracker. This is how the super affiliates do it and it can be done over breakfast.

    For those asking more specific questions... cut it out! He gave you everything you need right there and it'll work for any product.

    Take $100 and try it on something and if you cant get $100 together you are in some serious trouble!

    Well good job indeed, but its pretty easy to pull up the landing page and find out the actual adwords traffic from it and see where the spikes are as far as sales.

    Not that I'm one for knocking anyone for spreading the goodness and having an abundance mindset, but $700 a day and "killing it", that's an ad and niche I'd stroke for a few weeks until the profits dropped before I gave that puppy up.

    Just being honest. Something smells a bit fishy here. Like "Halibut fishy"

    But hey if your doing it, then you got an instant info product on your hands that you better turn into a million dollar product launch.

    To your continued online success

    I just did the match!

    The 2 product where $20 and $40
    let's say he sold both product equally, that's 75% of $30 = $22.5 in commission!

    That means he needed to sell about 45 products.

    The average CPC was 0.41
    He spent $300 which gave him about 712 clicks.

    So from 712 clicks he got 45 people to buy the products.

    That's a 6.3% conversion rate.

    Is that something you can believe?

    Even with a tremendous landing page those click costs are too low for those keywords. I really do hate to punch a gift horse in the mouth but my B.S. detector is firing.

    Spyfu tells us that the average cost per click for "make money online" is between .57 and a buck 75 and this guy's ad is not optimized for quality.

    Notice the keywords are nowhere to be found in the ads which means he'd probably be paying higher than average costs based on that alone.

    This doesn't add up.

    Newbies: Please do not get involved in PPC until you've delved deeply into Perry Marshall's stuff, or possibly PPC Coach and achieved success with keywords far less competitive than "make money online".

      First off, I think it's pretty cool that you tried to share a
      method with everyone here. It's a breath of fresh air amidst
      all the other stuff we see here.

      However, I won't lie and say I do have my doubts. Not trying
      to put pressure on you or anything, but why not post a screenshot
      of the day that you made the $700 to squash everything that everyone
      is saying?

    First of all, if I would discover a way to make 700 in one day I would
    never tell anyone about it. I would take the profit and put it straight

      Of course it works...all you have to do is click on a few google ads to see that. People don't pay for google ads for fun.

      He has a timely ad...people want to buy a solution.

      A good product with a good sales page

      He has a good landing page that google likes. Good quality score = low click prices...at least for a while....a few days. Then when you get slapped you move on with a new setup.

      He has the cahunas to play with google adwords.

        Hi there.

        Ask yourself this: Would you rather have hope or the truth?

        I would opt for the latter if given this choice. You have said yourself that you are a "newbie". I'd like to welcome you to the forum, the industry and the community that we work and exist in. However, I'd also like to say the following:

        There have been MANY people come on this forum and "giveaway" some information for free. This generosity some times has an ulterior motive behind it. For example, a person might be trying to create a good reputation for themselves in the run up to them releasing a product. And some times the information they give is not true, but is designed to give newbies HOPE.

        These newbies with hearts and minds full of hope flock to the product on offer from the person and gratefully whip out their credit cards ready to buy from the generous poster and forum member. This is how a lot of people lose their money and never get anywhere in Internet Marketing.

        Lots of scammers, thieves and spammers use the above techniques described, so sometimes a little due diligence and scrutiny is needed when bold claims such as the one being claimed in this post are made. Typically, whenever I see experienced marketers and warriors applying some scrutiny I like to stay quiet, let them do their thing and then decide on what I think.

        The people in this thread are not out to be negative, or to stop people making money, but they are PROTECTING newbies from making bad decisions or getting bad advice.

        Lets take this thread as an example:

        The poster claims some incredible results. Some of the stats are truly out of the ordinary and there are a lot of people on this forum who do PPC and know that not all the numbers displayed here are typical.

        Secondly, the topic is paid per click marketing. This is an area where you can literally lose your house if you don't know what you're doing and take bad advice.

        Now, just because what the poster says is incredible doesn't mean it isn't possible, but the poster is also not prepared to post any evidence of what he claims, which would be prudent in circumstances where such big claims are made in such a controversial area of marketing, so in light of this we have to decide for ourselves what is more likely; that the poster achieved this, or decided just to post an incredible and controversial post to boost their reputation?

        As a new person to this industry, if you see the original post, act on the advice and expect to see similar results, you are going to LOSE money. So when other warriors question it, they are looking out for YOU.

        When we see incredible posts like this, or see big claims, we should always critically analyze these sorts of things for our own good and part of that is to ask questions, its perfectly valid ESPECIALLY when the poster posted a thread in a public forum like this. If you post, you're not always going to get good reactions. 100% positive feedback would be the product of blind ignorance and thats a dangerous thing when people's hopes, dreams and money are on the line.

        Usually, if the poster is able to answer all the questions put to them, and/or can provide evidence, then generally speaking thats a good thread which does genuinely give solid hope to ALL reading it. There are many genuine and sincere threads here that will give you all the advice and hope you need. If you really need hope, message me and I might be able to post you some of my fave's from my bookmarks.

    The CPC doesn't add up. I can believe that people who are losing their jobs are becoming desperate, yes.... but as an affiliate you shouldn't be paying only $0.41 a click for an unoptimized "make money online" ad. And a 6.x conversion rate is VERY good. Too good.

    A big red button that says "Click Here For More Info" with NO pre-sell? Hmmm.

        Nobody said you were trying to sell an ebook. To say that a campaign generated over $700 of pure profit per day and you abandoned it is pure nonsense. You don't need to show me a screenshot of earnings to say that if you are telling the truth then you also are completely devoid of common sense. There is no reason for you to stop this campaign. That is why people don't believe you. Also, I have tried selling similar programs with a fraction of the conversions you claim. My pages are highly optimized. Because of the conversion ratio, I just barely break even. That's why I abandon campaigns.

    Sure, it's cool that he shared it, BUT it's also not a smart move because it will create competition.

    Noone in the world will reveal a $700 p/d campaign like it's no big deal. And say they've stopped it because they're not into PPC. As if they're so rich, they don't need the money. Yea right.

        Either way - you can at least take the basic formula for a way to make $:

        People pay for a solution to a painful problem.

        Create a greased slide directly to the solution they desperately need.

        And a certain percentage of them are going to jump on it - especially if the copy is hot.

      You're right. He doesn't owe anyone anything. Not at all. That wasn't my point.

      Giving people hope is fine and its at everyone's discretion to decide whether to believe what is put in front of them.

      BUT, where this becomes serious is when some one new goes and tries something like this. With no certainty that it is true or even works, that person stands to lose a lot of money, all because they ignored common sense, failed to question the quality of the information and acted on hope.

      This also become an issue if some one presents information like this to establish a reputation and then tries to sell to these hopeful newbies down the line, offering no real value to their customers and lining their pockets with cash.

      These things do happen.

      I am all for people who want to believe this (and I can't say either way whether the info in this thread is accurate or not) but I get a bit tired of people saying "hey, stop being so negative, its not helpful, you don't have an abundance mindset, you'll never make money". What can appear to be negativity may just be scrutiny, due diligence and sensible considered thought. EVERYONE is entitled to their opinions and thoughts, whether they are right or wrong.

      I also get VERY frustrated with thoughtless negativity. Some on this thread have just said "This is bs, it's rubbish, don't listen to it". That kind of comment doesn't help or contribute anything. But there are others in this thread trying to get to the bottom of this for the benefit of themselves and others and they are being flamed for it, which I think is a little short-sighted.

      Like I say, if this thread is 100% legit, then cool. If some choose to question it and raise issues thats cool too. Because establishing what is accurate and what is not is going to help a lot of the forum members and some of the dreamers who are present in our number.

      And what if you don't have that money to lose but full of hope, thinking you have a workable blueprint? What if that person loses a couple hundred dollars? A couple of hundred dollars that could have fed their family for a couple of weeks? Times are hard right now.

      Furthermore, just because you have the experience and sense to stop such an experiment, that doesn't mean hope filled newbies are going to think the same, which is why it is best to apply a bit of common sense to these scenarios.

      Besides, hope is a powerful emotion and one that is harnessed by many marketers to get people to part with their money.

      Acting on bad information is potentially dangerous and damaging, and establishing truth from fiction is no bad thing. Like I say, there are some great inspirational stories out there which are TRUE and this thread might be true, but it doesn't pay to act on bad information just because it is inspirational.

        I'd have to say this hypothetical person needs to take responsibility for his actions.

        Anyone that broke who doesn't know what he's doing and copies a campaign from a forum thread has a fool for a client.

        Where did you get the $200 figure? I didn't say anyone had to spend $200.

        If money is that tight I'd advise the person to get a 2nd job first or find some other risk-free income source, if that amount of money is going to break them.

        I'm talking here about adults running a business, not children. It really bugs me when people act like newbies are a bunch of brain-damaged zombies who are incapable of thinking or taking responsibility.

        Anyone who can't afford to lose a set amount of money shouldn't spend that much on Adwords. It's just like buying any type of ad. You don't know in advance if it will be profitable.

        You can stop the ads after spending any amount of money you want. Just watch how much clicks are actually costing, how many people are clicking through to the sales page, etc.

        I don't think I've ever spent $200 on a losing campaign. I would have paused it long before that. $50 maybe, but not $200.

        Anyway, it goes on a credit card, so it isn't immediate cash out of pocket, and often the money from the sales comes in before the CC bill is due.

          I rather feel you have missed the point.

          Not all newbies are like this, true. But from what I have seen on this thread, there is a fair few who I and others would consider vulnerable.

          Impulse buying and decision making is rife when full of emotion and doesn't always lead to clear thinking or good decisions. Some marketers love this and prey on it relentlessly and THATS why so many people don't see success with their efforts. Overcome with emotions and confusion, they spend spend spend, never focus and never get anywhere.

          The fact a number of new people have messaged me thanking me and admitting to some of these bad decisions and problems tells me this is a real problem and is a perfect example of why bad and inaccurate information is potentially harmful and should not really be tolerated.

          Just because you have an ounce of common sense, doesn't mean others do, and we shouldn't accept the tripe being printed on this board just because it stirs inspiration up in us.

            If it works... great.

            However my opinion is the guy did this to get interest in the thread, look how many people have seen it and replied! (myself included).

            I would just say be careful if you are thinking of trying this.

            $700 by using 2 generic keyphrases on Adwords sending people through to an average sales page is something to think about, that's all I am saying...

            Also if it was yourself that made this much with 2 phrases would you expand the campaign, duplicate it, build your own product or post it in the WF?

            Not saying it doesn't work, but simply be careful!

            All the best

      Umm yeah, it's great to have hope but when it's based on loose information that will cost you a lot of money trying...only to find out the hard and expensive way that PPC marketing just does NOT work this way, then you'll come back and think differently.

    This is exactly How I made $700 yesterday (Nov.16, 2008)

    You can copy my ads or do whatever you like, It was just a test in the MMO niche, (I will not use these specific ads anymore)

    I made $700 profit with just 2 adwords ads and 2 clickbank products.

    My Secret: the current recession is making people desperate buyers!
    I spent around $125 on each Adwords campaign. (Daily budget was set at $300 for each campaign) and the only 2 keywords I used were the phrase keywords "make money online" and "make money internet".


    As you can see, both ads are almost identical except for the 2nd ad (notice the £ gbp sign and "UK" at the end of the title). Both ads display 5 figure amounts, which is very attractive and makes people click. Overall, the 2nd ad performed better as it is a product targeted at the uk specifically, but the US ad did it's job.

    I hope this post was useful to some, remember that PPC is dangerous if you don't monitor your campaigns every hour or so.
    Hi

    It's great result ...congratulate....it's happen...but I would like to hear how much you make today....and the next 7 day....

    Thanks for the tip, Re-cycle.

    I gotta ask you though

    Is this your own product, Re-cycle? Based on this http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...g-75-comm.html it looks like it might be your product.

    did you promote it as an affiliate or as your own self
