What an Ugly Experience!

I set up an ad yesterday on bing advertising this particular page Success Package - Totally eliminating online business frustration and despair and make money online. only to discover that I had about 600+ clicks, and deep in the hole - cash-wise!
Got just few subscribers and this got me wondering if bing produce good and quality traffic for targeted keywords at all because this page gives me an average 75% conversion for targeted traffic.
OR
Am I doing something the wrong way - because I did my keyword research well.

Any bing ads specialist? Because Adwords would have given me a minimum of 400 subscribers for this!

    I have actually experimented with both bing and adwords and found that adwords produced better quality traffic that tended to convert much more better

    Hi Louis i know the feeling i had an almost identical experience with Bing advertising, as i left my ads and woke up the next morning only to find i'd burnt a very large hole in my pocket for (from memory) no reward.
    There are some warriors here who have had success with Bing ads but i sure haven't and i tried a number of things. I'm sure adwords converts better and many warriors will testify to that.
    This was in the days when i was involved in PPC, which i am no longer.

    Someone told me that yahoo produces a higher ROI than any other search engine. It does definitely depend on niches, but this was someone who I know promotes in a ton of different niches. They said yahoo always seems to have better conversions than google or bing.

      Louis, the truth is i can't think off hand but i have seen on a number of threads on this forum with people saying they got really good results with Bing, but like i said i personally never did.

    I dont think its so much traffic as its your landing page.
    Your headline is vague and so is the offer.

    I am finding it hard to believe that your getting 75% optin with the copy that you have.

    I would split test same traffic with a different squeeze page to see get more data.

    Also compare adwords traffic to bing in your analytics and see who gets more time on page. This will tell you if they are reading it or just clicking away.

    You may be surprised to find out that adwords leads have a less time on site but better conversion.

    bing is great for the right niches. I kill it on there. It's def your landing page. I also see no mention of optimization or split testing in your OP.

    I've actually had good results with Microsoft Adcenter (Bing and Yahoo combined). The leads i get are good for the niche that i'm in, and they have a very helpful customer support staff.
