    Hey Guys,

    I'm feeling pretty bittersweet right now.

    Here's what happened: remember that post about the guy making $30K a month from Bing? It inspired me to put my Bing Ad credits to use and try out PPC. Having never done a PPC campaign before, I just followed his advice.

    Now I'd consider my tests over the last 2 weeks extremely successful. I've made over $2200 in the last 12 days, $514 of which is from Friday alone.

    Here's the problem: I got my Adwords and Bing Ads accounts banned. And my CPA network cut my link on my most profitable offer because I had inadvertently been keyword bidding (not exactly, a broad match keyword triggered my ad for the trademark before I had put it as a negative keyword...lesson learned:always add negative keywords first).

    So I have proof of concept, I know my ads work and the offer converts. Now I'm thinking about setting up new accounts with family and friends' info, or buying some.

    That's where I need some help.

    What do you guys think is the best route? Should I setup an LLC and use this information to signup for accounts and minimize taxes? Should I use a friend or family member's info and just give them a cut to pay for their tax burden in April? Can I setup a Paypal with a VCC and VBA, buy an account and run this thing tax-free? I don't mind doing it legit and paying taxes, I would just like to minimize my tax exposure. How would you guys proceed in this case- knowing you're going to make a lot of money and wanting to do it properly?

    Once I get this thing back up and running, I'll consider a starting a journey thread to share all the tips I've picked up along the way. Until then, I really appreciate any input you guys can share. Thanks again :)

    You need seven clown in monkey costumes and four microphones connected to Matt Cutts office. What is that for a question? How about a Microsoft Account, that would be a good start.

    Make sure to talk on the phone with support, I find it helps if you get to know them, and they get to know you. Although there are some idiots on bing support lol.

    Setting up an LLC with an new bank account would definitely work.

    Also when you do get setup again I recommend look for a PPC cloaker service there is quite a few guys on this forum advertising them. That way you can prevent yourself getting banned so quick again. With a PPC cloaker you can run any landing page you want..

    Hello, may I ask what is your ROI with your Bing ads campaign?

    if you're going to churn and burn accounts like this then be prepared to waste a lot of time on account creation. there's so much variables to consider..

    Just keep opening more accounts and applying your codes there and rinse and repeat until you have a good chunk of money until you open a legitimate ad account to do your main bidding with.

    I was using coupons too liberally, pretty sure that's what got me banned. Kind of had no choice because there was no money on the credit card used for the account and I saw the ads converting so I just said fuck it and used a bunch of coupons knowing I'd probably be banned for it. Other than that, it's all whitehat. Shouldn't be any issues.

    ROI was about 10X what I put in cash.

    So, to not get banned:

    1) Set negative keywords for brand name when setting up campaign.

    2) Don't use too many coupons.

    It's 10x because you used coupons. What would the real ROI be if you spent your own money? It could have been a break even or loss am I right?

    Can't tell if you're trolling or not. There's a million things you could do to get banned. Anyone looking to experiment with PPC should know the TOS of the platform and abide by them, or have a contingency plan for getting banned.






    I spent about $150 cash and $300 in vouchers. ROI would've been around 500% without the vouchers.

    If it converts, I will run your ads for 10%.

    I was reffering to the info needed in order to get your account up and running. If he only needed a Microsoft account he wouldn't be in this position now would he?
