I paid a total of $225 in the past 10 days on advertisement and this were the results:
I am in the career niche. The peerfly and cj earnings come from promoting a job search website called beyond.com where I get $1 for every sign up.
I have figured out a sweet advertising technique that works well with the offer and I think I can scale it up to make at least $1000 per week. I will see by the end of next month.
My advice is: If an idea sounds good to you on paper, give it a shot. You have nothing to lose. The technique I am using is something people here have been saying "is dead" for the past 3-4 years.
Also, don't be afraid to risk a reasonable amount of money. In the past three months, I was doing a free advertisement version of the technique. I was making about $10 - $20 a day. This was proof that my system worked but I was still scared of paying to amplify the amount of traffic. Last week, I thought "the hell with it" and invested $25. The return was about $85 profit
