    I have a been a lurker of a few forums including BHW for over 3 years now. I have been implementing methods and making a 100 dollars here and there. Finally I decided to get into PPC and I am so glad I did. I currently have over 10 campaigns running now (all whitehat) and I am making over 30 grand a month now between 2 CPA Networks, Pointclicktrack and Peerfly. I must say though, Pointclicktrack has the upper hand. My AM Cheri is by far the most communicative AM I have ever dealt with. If anyone needs a referral for either networks let me know! Here is a screen shot of my earnings for the month of June at Pointclicktrack. I am going to re-invest 70% of my money into my Web Design and Internet Marketing Business and of course save 30% for Tax Season :(

    If anyone has any questions about PPC, I should be able to help you out a lot :)

    Warm Regards,
    Richard

    Thanks guys!

    I am using using Bing Ads, I get a fraction of the cost per click as Adwords. Plus, the users of Bing and Yahoo search engine are a totally different demographic than google. I find they convert a lot better!

    Richey, can you give us an idea of the products you're promoting, and the kinds of landing pages you use? What's your recommendation?

    For instance, I use a blog, but it's a lot a lot stuff on the sidebar -- it could be seen as "distracting" -- do you prefer something that keeps the user completely focused on the product at hand?

    Hello!

    I prefer to promote big ticket offers, around 25-130 dollars per lead / sale. As for landing pages, I am currently promoting offers that allow direct-linking. Promoting a blog via PPC is not a bad idea, as long as you engage the user, build trust and don't make it seem like you are selling anything to them. Oh, and don't forget to build your email list if you go that route :)

    Warm Regards,
    Richard

    Are you selling directly or do you make them sign up on their list before making a sale?

    What do you recommend in order to get started with PPC? Any particular material (books or W/E) you recommend? Something to point me in the right direction. I make ok money with CB, Adsense now, but I'm looking into expanding.

    Cheers

    Honestly, I wish I could point you directly to some good quality material, but I can't :( I just got bits and pieces from a few forums including this one. Maybe try the PPC category here for some case studies. I learned most of my skills from tossing a few hundred dollars into my account and running campaigns. I would take the campaigns that would break even or better and refine them more. Rinse and repeat.

    Richey,

    Good advice, especially on promoting the big ticket offers.

    Forgot to ask, have you tried to sell products from cj or clickbank? or do you just use pointclicktrack and peerfly?

    Are you targeting the US? If so, how much are you bidding if you don't mind me asking?

    I have also had good success using Clickbank and PPC. That is when I had a landing page offering freebies pertaining to the CB Product and I would make them get their freebies via email. I would then set up an autoresponder with freebies each week and at the footer of the email I would write "This email was sponsored by (CB Product), for more information Click Here (Aff Link). This method raked in some good side cash.

    As for Commission Junction, I ended up being banned by them because when I was new to PPC I was bidding on brand names that were trademarked, and that is a NO NO. I no longer bid on any trademark terms and I am doing just fine!

    Warm Regards,
    Richard

    95% of my offers are US only, and I pay on average .08 to .75 a click :)
