    The secret to my success with Pay Per Click is very simple. But don?t let this fool you. It?s also VERY profitable.

    My secret is? Bidding on product name keywords only

    See, when most people buy PPC, they try to bid on as many keywords as
    possible. The problem with this is that you often have to spend a ton of
    money in testing. I?m not into that. I only want to MAKE money.

    The reason why I only bid on product name keywords is that I know
    these people are ready to buy. They just need a little encouraging, and
    that is where I come into the picture. I reassure them in my copy that
    this product will fix their problem, and that they should by it.


    Let?s use the example of a customer who wants to lose weight. The
    person searching for a product like The Truth About Abs is much more
    likely to buy than a person searching for something like ?how to get
    ripped abs.? First of all, the person searching for ?how to get ripped
    abs? might be looking for a free solution. And secondly, let?s say that
    person reads on a site that The Truth About Abs is the best product to
    make this happen. Well, they might end up doing another search to see
    what other people are saying about The Truth About Abs. They may
    very well end up buying that product, but chances are, they are not going
    to come back to your site to do it.

    In essence, the biggest advantage to bidding on product name keywords
    only is that it keeps your costs down. Now, if you have an unlimited
    budget each month to bid on PPC, go ahead and buy as many keywords
    as you can, and test, test, test. But I have a very limited budget, as I
    suspect you do too. And remember, not losing money is just as
    important, if not more important, than making money.

    SO WHAT SHOULD I SELL?

    If you are a newbie, I do not recommend that you use PPC. Why?
    Because you probably don?t know what sells yet! See, I only buy PPC
    for products I know are hot sellers. (The only exception to this is to buy
    PPC for a new product where there is very little competition, because I
    am not going to have to spend much money) The way I know if a
    product is a hot seller is to test it first with free marketing strategies. I
    am a big fan of article marketing; in fact, even though I make hundreds
    each day with PPC, I still do article marketing. Does it bring as much
    money in as PPC? Not even close, but I still make some cash (which
    means more money for me to spend on PPC, where the real cash is!)
    When testing a product to see if it sells, I write about 25 articles and
    submit them to Ezine Articles. If I get a couple of sales, then I know the
    product sells, and I am willing to spend some money on Pay Per Click.

    If you are just starting out and have no idea what to sell, look for
    desperate markets, where people have a problem that they need to get
    fixed right now, and are willing to spend money to do it. You also
    should look for items that actually DO something for a person, as
    opposed to just giving them information. Yes, information products do
    sell, but they also have information that people can get for free. People
    are more likely to buy something that will save them time, or allow them
    not to do any work at all. People are lazy, take advantage of it

    (MARKETING TIP: you may want to actually convince people that
    they need to use the product you are promoting to fix their problem,
    instead of fixing it themselves. List the problems they could run into by
    fixing it themselves, and tell them how using your product will make
    things much easier for them)




    HOW MANY KEYWORDS SHOULD YOU BID ON RELATED TO THE PRODUCT NAME?

    The answer? As few as possible.

    In fact, I only bid on the actual product name, and variations of it. For
    instance, if I am promoting the foreign currency trading platform ?Easy
    Forex?, I only bid on ?Easy Forex? and maybe Easyforex. I never use
    quotes or brackets, because I do not need to. You can also bid on
    phrases like ?buy Easy Forex? or ?purchase Easy Forex.? I have not
    done this in the past, because I have not needed to, so if you do this, you
    are on your own 

    WHAT SHOULD MY AD LOOK LIKE?

    This one is fairly simple. (Seeing a pattern here?)

    Most PPC ?experts? will tell you that you MUST put up a bunch of ads,
    and then test to see which one works best and use that ad.

    I have never had to do this. Instead, I use one simple ad. And that is:

    ?Is (product name) a scam?? for the headline and ?do not use (product name) until you read this!?

    This ad taps into the psychology behind why most people search for a
    product name in a search engine. They want to know if it really works,
    and whether they are going to get ripped off if they buy it. I get very
    high clickthrough rates with this type of ad, and in case you didn?t know,
    clickthrough is very important when you first put an ad on Google
    because it determines your Quality Score. The higher the quality score,
    the lower your cost per click will be, and the more money you will make

    A LITTLE TRICK I HAVE LEARNED TO INCREASE MY CLICKTHROUGH RATE (AND MY SALES)

    This tip is black hat, so proceed with caution.

    A way that you can not only improve your clickthrough rate, but squash
    your competition as well as to have two ads of YOURS on the same
    page of a search engine. BUT, Google will not allow you to do this
    within the same account. So, what you need to do is create a second
    Adwords account, and design your ad. Now if you do this, I would use a
    different credit card than your primary account, a different email
    address, everything. After all, you don?t want Google shutting down
    your entire operation.

    CONCLUSION

    At this point, you may be thinking that this is too simple, but honestly, it
    works! As I said earlier, the beauty is that it really keeps your costs
    down. Pay Per Click can get very expensive, but if you are on a budget,
    this is a great way to maximize profits without spending a lot of money.

    You will want to make a new windows user account (Keeps your cookies/flash cookies separate from your other account).

    Make sure you use a different IP address for each account.

    I suggest using a VCC for your 2nd account as well and use a different name/address.

    Hey nice post man.

    Do you create your own landing pages that link to the product you are selling or do you somehow direct link?

    I did very well a few years ago selling weight loss products via ppc by simply masking the affiliate page into a domain I purchased.

    Ive been out of the ppc game for a while now & im sure its not that easy anymore but Id love to get some profitable campaigns up & running again.

    cool BH idea... if you want to be really safe.. not only a VCC, but also a VPS, then you don't have to worry about the proxy leaking and/or Google recognizing it as a proxy.

    Nice idea, I'm getting into PPC & i'll give it a shot. This multiple adwords precautions is BS too. I have logged into several accounts from the same IP & computer for months and 0 problems. Different browsers & no conflicting cookies works for me, well for the last 5 months or so it has ;)

    I know you can't direct link or domain forward your affiliate link with google adwords but is it ok to redirect straight to an affiliate landing page through your own site?

    I'm cleaning cookies, and changing IP's (I have DSL). I'm using two browser on 6 different accounts works like the charm. I was paranoid in the past but looks like ban on accounts was triggered by something else than some mysterious check for your fingerprints on keyboards ;) It's often unusual behavior.

    I'm using landing pages with few very similar products. I'm rating them depending of quality (how good are selling for me :D ), so at the top I have product that gives me most money from this place. I got 30-40% of sales from 1 placed product. This gives me an opportunity to sell other product if visitor have already first one. But I'm not bidding on products name, I'm using broad bidding niche related.

    Definitely a landing page, because, remember, they are Googling the product name in order to see what others are saying about it

    Hi

    I have 3 simple question on this:

    - what kind of average conversion rate are you seeing?

    - what is you average cpc when you bid on product names?

    - probably not many ad views when you only bid on the product name?

    Honestly, I don't really track conversion rates, and I do NOT use Google's conversion tool. I have heard people say the conversion tool can lead to Google slaps

    My average CPC depends on the product. One of them is .35, another is .22, and one of them is only .10!

    No, I definitely do not get as many ad views by just targeting products. I plan on bidding on more keywords outside of just products as I save up more capital.

    At some point, I plan on spending about $1000 a day in adwords, with the hopes of making at least $2000 in profit from that
