I came across a £100 promo code and started using it on adwords. It's the first time I have ever used adwords. That day I also got a email from one of my affilate companies saying that they were having a 50% sale. So, I started up adwords and off I went. The next day I was up $155 making 3 sales. The day after that I find out (new to PPC) that I can not bid on certain keywords. I had to create a blog post and use that link in my adwords. So people now click my blog post and then go to their landing page. The ad was just the affilate link and THEIR landing page that they created for this offer. So basically I was told to create 1 extra step for no reason. The user now clicks on the link, goes to my blog post, clicks to link and then goes to the landing page. I get a email today saying that the company won't allow those sales because I used those keywords that I wasn't allowed to bid on (I didn't know) So now i'm having it out with them trying to make sense of it all. What I don't understand is that in no way have I damaged the rep of this company. The user click on the link and goes straight to an official landing page created by them. I used my promotional code, using my money to increase their sales, of which I sold 3 in the first night. Can someone help me out on this? Do I have a case or will I just loose the $155?
