    Hi, all. after lots of reading, I take action several days ago. I choose 3 products from CB marketplace with gravity ranging from 10-40, all 3 products are health-related niche. Then I opened an account in Bing ads and bought a $100 bing coupon in fiverr, and start my 3 campains.

    All PPC keywords are taken from the affiliate pages providing by the vendor. 4 days after, the $100 coupon has been used up without earning me a dime. Anyone knows what's wrong?

    I ran into the same issue.
    a bunch of campaigns, targeted keywords and a bunch of clicks but no conversions.

    could be the keywords that generate the clicks are not good for conversions. Could be the ads themselves.

    You have good click through rate on the bottom two

    where do you send your traffic to?
    your landing page or the vendor product page?

    $100 is nothing for starting up in PPC, you'll need more coupons or money.

    I sent the traffic directly to the vendor's landing page since I had not set up my old landing page.

    The CTR for the 2 is good but but no conversion, it's weird. I set PPC limit to $0.29. Maybe the product will not convert or something. OR maybe we need to turn to the Youtube traffic.

    I actually paid $5 for the $100 coupon. But it seems the coupon can be used in Bing only one time. May need another Bing account.

    Get your own landing page up man. Fill it up with testimonials. Mind adding me on Skype for more help and keep me updated on how it works out.

    I think with Cb, you better use your own landing page because most of people will not buy instant when they saw the presentation, you have to keep catching them day through day, until they believe that this product will fix their problem and they have to buy that

    The second benefit when using your own landing page is that you can keep selling them another product because you have their email and their approval to sending them an email, that's why solo ads are so powerful, because people will buy from the one who they trust

    p/s: could you pm me the source to buy coupond bing ad, too?
    fb ads are so expensive nowaday, so I want to make a big change

    Not targeted traffic homie. Make sure you have people looking to buy going to your landing page whether you direct link or not. Those numbers look cold as ice.

    But I'm a little bit confused, so I set up a landing page with my own domain, where the link should be jumped to? If the link jumps to vendor's landing page, will it be duplicate as my landing page will be similar to the vendor's?

    So, I created a landing page similar to the one of the vendor's, and then link to the landing page of the vendor's? But will it be weird for the customer to see 2 similar landing page in a row?

    had the same exact experience some time ago, $100 spent to test things out, 460 clicks and 0 conversions. I've learned that you need to target everything a lot better :)

    can you please explain how to get the bing coupon?

    I looked online and i keep finding fake ones that want my information.

    Then i found one for 100$... but i need to use 25$ of my own money to get it

    What's wrong? Well...


    1. You spent $100 on something you had very little experience in.
    2. You spent 30 cents per click.
    3. Your landing page probably wasn't too attractive
    4. You probably didn't rotate ads.
    5. You probably didn't have your CTA above the fold, which is why you didn't convert.
    6. You set a high daily budget when you should have started off lower while you were testing
    7. Your quality score for 2 of your ads is 5/10. 6/10 would be much more acceptable, although you should aim for at least an 8/10.
    8. You were probably advertising the wrong product on Bing. Bing and Yahoo's demographics consist of older people, so if you were advertising something like a Viagra and denture combo pack, you would have seen a much better conversion rate.

    However, here is what you did do right

    1. Your CTR is phenomenal, so keep that up.
    2. You average position was excellent.
    3. You only spent $5 for a $100, so you technically didn't lose much.
    4. You asked for help. Many people are too obstinate to do this.

    Going to have to give Bing a try after seeing everyone getting these coupons. I just need to make sure I have selected the perfect offer and capture emails.
