    Hi Guys,

    This is my first post on here, been lurking for ages but never really felt comfortable asking for help...don't now why, but I'm changing that!

    First things first, I wanna say that I've been pottering around online for a few years, I've got a couple of blogs that trickle a couple of pennies in here and there but nothing to shout about...at all!

    I'm not here asking for "the secret" "the magic bullet" or the "get rich quick" recipes to success, I know as well as you all do, if someone's making a killing the last thing they want to do is open it to the world. I know making money online is simply hard work, that's it.

    What I'm after is a little help and advice; I've got £320 in my google adwords account (very old vouchers/credits) and I've been wondering what to do with it, I'm not well versed in PPC/adwords hence the questions.

    Of course I'd love to make money off of what ever i do with it, but im not expecting to make millions or anything like that, breaking even this time around, as long as i learn some things that i could then use to further myself would be fine.

    So my questions are,
    1. what would you do with the £320 credit
    2. do to recommend any articles, blogs, courses etc that could genuinely help me
    3. what's your one piece of advice when it comes to adwords/PPC

    Just so you know, I'm fully capable of making websites/content/hosting etc so any answers like that won't faze me, I'm willing to put the hard work in, I'd just much rather put it in, in the right(ish) place :)

    Thanks for taking the time to read this and I look forward to talk to you all, thanks in advance for any help and advice :)

    Cheers
    Darran

    Hi, darran

    Where are u from ?

    If you are expert in building websites then why not spend that money for setting up campaign for your self ?

    Mean you need to build a website for yourself first, That you are providing affordable webdesign service or business website or personal website anything like this.

    Then you need to promote it over adwords locally. Only in your city. Because you have local leads then you can close them very easily.

    So if you get some number of leads and even close 3 to 5 of them then you can easily make good money from this adwords balance.

    If you have any problem with setting up adwords account then i will help you with that.

    Best of luck.. :D

    set up a review site with high ticket amazon products
    For example you do high end purses, compare the top 10 for 2014
    Make each review very detailed, and a clean site.

    Then, go run ads to your review using product name keywords
    If your reviews are good, and your keywords are targeted properly, this will convert very highly

    Just an idea!

    I would say set up a sweet diet lander with a 2-step offer and go ape shet, but google will shut you down real quick :(

    Hi Joseph,

    Thanks for the comment, I'm from the UK not far from london, what about yourself?

    I know what your saying, and that's a pretty good idea about a local service but that's gonna be quite hands on work isn't and I have a day job with pretty long hours as it is, I rather (i know most would lol) something like affiliate related?

    Thanks for the help :)

    Hi cmghoops32,

    Thanks for the input, much appreciated and I'm liking your idea here. I'm assuming I'd be running the review products through Amazon affiliates right? Any others you'd recommend?

    Wouldn't those keywords I'd be targeting really expensive?

    Cheers for the help

    Sorry mootonandy, I don't really understand your question? My personal blog is on its own domain on my own hosting, and has been going for about a year half/two years. It's not that, that I want to promote, I was just illustrating my tech level (not to show off) to inform potential helps like yourself that I know a little online/tech stuff.

    I'm looking to use the adwords credit i have in my account for anything that i can earn from really, within TOS and then continue onwards with and was asking what you'd spend it on, and for some basic PPC/adwords help and advice :)

    Cheers!

    Try thinking in reverse:

    What website am I going to promote?
    What product(s) am I going to sell?
    What keyword(s) should I target to find people who want to BUY NOW?


    Once you have all the above you can start playing with Adwords.
