How Doable Is $3000 Profit Per Month on MSN Adcenter?

3 replies
In your experience, what would it take to hit that mark as an affiliate? How many campaigns, what types of payouts you would have to promote, etc.

With Adwords, you could do that extremely easy with one moderately successful campaign in a relatively competitive niche. I'm just trying to gauge where Adcenter stands compared to Adwords.

I never see anyone say they make their sole living off Adcenter the same way they say they make their living off Google, Facebook, a PPV network, etc.

    I believe Bing and Yahoo get about 1/2 the search market share of Google in the US. One would think you should be able to do around half the revenue based solely off traffic potential. Of course, you have to factor in differences in CTR, searcher behavior, etc. I've seen some people claim that Adcenter buyers are more likely to convert by up to 20% compared to the same campaign on Adwords. So there are a lot of things to factor into the equation.

    All that to say...I guess I don't have an answer for you.

    I don't really do much straight affiliate stuff any more but I've had solid results as an affiliate in the past on ad center (this was awhile ago)

    The key for me was focusing in on the right keywords. If your thinking like everyone else and using the obvious keywords it probably wont work well. What I was doing was targeting infomercial and catalog keywords for certain types of products. I would then promote a competing product with a similar appeal. For a long while straight direct linking was working fine, but things improved a lot with my own lander.

    If you commit to it and don't quit you should be able to hit it...The numbers are reasonable...

    $3000 a month breaks down to $100 a day * 30 days

    How much traffic and the associated costs to hit the target will depend on quite a few factors, but lets play with some examples.

    let's say you earn $50 per sale for your own product or as an affiliate. You need 2 sales per day to hit your target of $100.

    Let's say your conversion rate using targeted keywords is 1%. That means you need 200 visitors per day minimum to make 2 sales.

    200 visitors per day can break down a few ways...

    10 keywords each getting 20 clicks per day...
    20 keywords each getting 10 clicks per day...
    30 keywords each getting 7 clicks per day...(this gets you 210 visitors but its close enough)

    Now figuring out how much its going to cost you to get that traffic is tricker. You might have to spend $300 a day to earn $400 a day to make that $100. When you start getting into budget factors the variables can only be estimated so far.

    Hope this helps.
