Hi friends,

If I place a campaign in Google Adwords how much budget is required to start my campaign? Some people are saying you start with just $5 and if it converts well then scale it as big you can and as fast you can.

If I start with just $5 how many clicks I will get and what is the rate per click of google ads? Does it depend on the product I am promoting or is it a same rate for all the offers?

    It depends a lot on your CPC. Number of visitors from your ad should be statistically viable (which is defined by your average stats of course), otherwise you just place random bets.

    I just got an offer from Google for $150 in free Adwords but I think you need to spend $150 first to use it. But I don't know if it is worth using as I don't have much experience in running Adwords

      If you know how to use it, SE traffic is very high quality. But that "if" is here for a reason of course.

    It depends on what your niche is. If you are in a competitive niche, there will be some keywords with over $15 cpc(finance, credit cards etc) then $5 will not be enough to test your campaign. Even if you are in a less competitive niche, $5 will not be enough to determine whether or not a campaign will do well, you need at least $100 in my opinion to get a clear understanding of what works and what does not.

    You really need to learn a ton more about Adwords before you even consider running a campaign. The questions you asked here show you know less than nothing about what you are doing. Google provides a ton of support information to answer all your questions. Learn how Adwords works before you even think of advertising.
