    It's a long process to make a campaign work.

    $40 might not be enough.

    What you can say is that your advert works as you are getting click throughs. (Whether it is as good as it could be we don't know unless you trialled other options)

    Your landing page at this point is the problem as no one is biteing.
    It could be the copy, or it could be the offer. You now need to trial different versions. Bigger call to actions, long copy, short copy, advertorial and find something that gets the bait taken (but if the offer is shite it still won't sell)

    Other things to look at, does your traffic suit your offer?

    Are you hitting the target audiences optimum time of day.

    Like I said a lot of trial goes into making a campaign work and it costs money to refine it.

    If your traffic is targeted, keep testing and improving your landing page.
    In real estate it's about location, location, location. In conversion, all is about testing, testing, testing.
    There is a lot of tools that you can use to do split tests.
    Good luck! :)

    It sounds as if your landing pages aren't as good as you think.
    As rob1977 and mrzed suggested you need to test, test and then do a little more testing.
    You need to split the traffic between at least 2 landing pages.

    You say you didn't have any videos on the landing pages, I would certainly test a page with video.

    Check your analytics to see where the traffic is coming from and also split test which keywords are working and which days your campaigns work the best.Collect as much data as you can.

    $40 is an absolute JOKE

    You need to spend at least $300 a day for a few days (3+) to be able to see any results...
    Obviously, this depends on your CPC etc... but getting sad for $40 and no results is just retarded.

    If you don't have at least a grand or two to test, its simple, don't do paid advertising (yet).

    $40 = less than 40 clicks in general - nowhere near enough to test properly - you need a couple of 1000 hits to see if it's going to convert.

    It all depends on how you monitize your campaign.
    But it would take time before you reach a stage where you would convert the traffic into leads.
