Launching a product with $100 in msn ad credit, any tips?

9 replies
So i plan on launching a ppc campaign with $100 ad credit next week. I know its best to send traffic to a squeeze page and presell but since msn is getting as uptight as google with those I'm thinking my best bet is to rely on a compliant sales page with good copy which is easier to get approved. The product is outside the IM niche so solo ads are pretty much impossible to come by. But my focus right now is how best to use this ad credit.

Any thoughts or tips on how i should use the credit or making sure my sales page is compliant?

    Find the best and most targeted keywords possible. Learn as much as you can before you start and monitor it closely. If you don't you could blow through $100 in a day or two.

    I don't know your niche, but there's almost always ways to use solo ads or get an article published to someone else's list. Also, consider guest blogging as an alternative.

    You should use the credit to target getting partners and JVs first this will give you more leverage than $100 trying to sell the product straight out in my opinion

    Get a solid list of keywords and be prepared to test for the full $100 budget. Test keywords and different sales letter tweaks

      haa, sorry to say this, but if you're just learning how to do ppc ads, you're going to need a lot more budget than that. I suggest to clients that they don't even bother with ppc unless they can put $500 into a month's worth of testing...and, most importantly, will still be able to pay their mortgage if a whole month testing goes by and they haven't made a single sale! Chances are you'll go through $250 or $300 and things will finally start clicking enough so that you'll see enough gold dust to keep you paying for more ad spend. But don't go in with $100 thinking you're going to triple your money your first time around. And, don't get discouraged from continuing to try.

    Yeah, $100 is doable..But keep in mind your sample size isn't that big and you could actually have a profitable sales funnel and STILL LOSE money because of that fact (and vice-versa).

    Finalize your sales funnel first. Free product for email address, landing page for main product, upsell product, downsell product ,etc.

    Then go for it. It would probably be a waste of money to try experimenting before you're done with you site and sales funnel.

    They often offer promos for new customers, have you got yourself some extra free credit? A few months back, they were offering $200, but I don't think that's available anymore.
