How do you make money with PPC such as Google Adwords?

From what I understand Google advertises your webpage and every time someone clicks it you must pay Google.

I have researched it a bit and found that it can be quite expensive. I also know that you can set a budget. But depending on how much it is I can imagine it would be hard to make a profit.

What exactly makes the price of PPC fluctuate? say 10 cents a click or 10.00 a click? I find this idea of Affiliate Marketing very interesting but I am not sure how to go about it.

I have used Google but just get confused because it goes into extreme detail.

Any help on this subject would be appreciated.

    Google is a pay per clic network. You advertise and if someone clic your ad you pay a certain amount per clic. What the clic will cost depends on a comination of factor.

    If your ads get clicked well , you will have a goog CTR (clic through) which means that people clic often on your ad in relation to the amount of time the ad is getting shown.
    In return google will reward you for high clic trouth by lowering the cost per clic.

    The level of coimptition affect the cost per clic as well. For example in the banking sector (loans) clics can get pretty nasty high. (5-10 $ + per clic)

    But smaller niche like the auto industry for example you can have low clics as low as 50 cents. You don't need to be the first one in the search results to get clics. It is often better to be thirs , 4 th or 5 th and get lower cost per clics to be able to get a good cost per conversion.

    Im offering to help people with a free counsulting for this if you like. all I ask is that you thank me if you fgeel I helped you well.

      I've just read that apparently you can not use Ad words to promote affiliate links?

      How would people possibly make money with this then?

        Its true. What you could do is to create a page that is informative from wich you link to the affiliate product. But you have to be carefull whth what you are associating with.

        Thousands of account got banned a couple of years ago because google wanted to dissociate with this kind of business.

        There are sill alot of product you can legitimatly promote with google, but try to stear clear of affiliate products like weight loss, **** berry and such...

    A leading expert on Google AdWords PPC for years has been Perry Marshall. He has several good books, lots of useful videos, etc. Do a search on his name.

    Basically, to make more than you spend with AdWords, your product or service can't be inexpensive. As an Online Marketer, I run successful AdWords campaigns where (for example) my client's service earns $100 to $300 per sales conversion, my Landing Page for him converts at around 20% and clicks cost less that $3.00.

    I've tried to sell ebooks with AdWords for $19.95, but AdWords is (usually) too expensive for such low cost items. Google makes money, you lose money.

    If you want to create a list of traffic emails, you can send your pay per click ads in a squeeze page. This page has an option box that will provide free items such eBooks and a online marketing videos in exchange for the viewer's email addresses. In this way you can build a list of prospective buyers, forward them a free eBook where you can directly promote a new product for them to purchase.

    I observed this type of PPC criteria on one of the best social media site and through this method; they made a very long list of subscribers for their products.

      Im not so sure about that... I know some people that had very big success doing exactly this, anyways I think that promoting CPA offers on Adwords is much better than promoting Clickbank offers... this is just my experience, the ROI has been higher for me when doing CPA. You gotta know what you are doing though, Google seems to HATE affiliate style landing pages and stuff, and most likely they will never approve your ad. There are certain tips to get around that when making a landing page that Google "likes", so you can run your ads

      niravg I LIKE THE CONCEPT. how do you drive traffic to the shopping cart for the offer you are promoting ? Most of them are single scrolling squeeze pages with the price and " go to cart " at the bottom. I assume you would have to screw with the Affiliate URL and change the re-direct page to the url for that. I would love to be able bypass the splash page on some offers and go directly to the cart because in most cases I can sell the product better than the affiliate. The question is ..... How do you change to the shopping cart page and still get paid ?

    Or if you are into really "blackhat" stuff, you can use a cloaker and run whatever landing page you want. You will still get caught and banned eventually so this is not a long term method by any means, but you can still make a TON of money while it lasts, if you do it right

    Before you dive into adword i urge you to learn the ropes otherwise you will be wasting your money.

    If you can earn money off free targeted traffic then you are half way done with making money with adword.

    The only difference is, with adword you have the overhead cost of paying dearly for the traffic which you need to sum up with your earnings before you can declare profit.

    Google AdWords can be very affordable and at the same time extremely pricey, depending on the keywords you choose to associate with your text links. A general rule of thumb is to pick long-tail keywords that much better than shorter terms, convert better and they are very affordable. But, you should also consider improving money-making potentials of your website. Say for example if on average every click costs you $1, you should at least earn $1.5 to be happy and have a positive track record in the long term.

      There are a number of other ad platforms that offer PPC advertising. You can try them as Google is getting very difficult.

    The idea that your product must be expensive for Adwords to work for you is not true. You can make it work for products that earn $10. I've been doing it for years.

    I like Bing better. It generally gives me a better ROI but Google Adwords with a product that will net you $10 will work.
