But in late November I decided to give it a shot, since I really didn't have anything better to do at the time. Because I wanted to use WordPress, I looked around for a good plugin to display eBay auctions and purchased phpBay Pro. I could have used the free version of the plugin, but I really liked the features of the Pro version so I went ahead and purchased it.
I spent a few minutes getting to know how the plugin worked, then went ahead and setup this site: Discount Wii Shop.
As you can see, it is nothing special, just the basics. My total time invested in the site: ~3.5 hours.
I then put $200 in my Adwords account specifically for this site.
The site went live on November 28th, and in the last 3 days of November it earned $89 net.
On Dec 1 and Dec 2, I paused my Adwords campaign because the CPC was too outrageous due to it being Black Monday (avg CPC $6.00).
The Adwords Campaign was resumed on Dec 3 with $165.39 remaining and ran through late in the day on Dec 7. Commissions continued to trickle through for the next few days, for a 7 day total of $232.30 net.
Here are a couple of screenshots, the first being my eBay report for 12/3-12/9 and the second being my Adwords campaign report.
I'm not putting this up here to brag, or to ask for kudos. I just want you to understand that the money is out there for the taking...
If you'll just take action.
