    Hey Guys,

    PLEASE NOTE:- it's my 4th day trying this system. So far m loving it!

    Today what i gonna share is the COMPLETE FACT about adwords (in my views). Read it carefully. Whatever i share to my BHW family, is always PERSONALLY tested by me.

    What is adwords?

    Why its tough making sales through adwords?

    Why people quit from adwords?

    Why they loose money from adwords?

    ANSWERS:-

    Initially, there is a thread which i opened few months before titled 'Is adwords really a GOLDMINE'?... I got lots of reply about different parameters like quality score, landing pages and BLAH BLAH BLAH..

    FORGET ALL.. (solely, my views)
    Adwords is NOT an advertising source, it's a CASH game!

    Basically, if you are on limited budget, needs money very badly, can't take risk with your present cash etc, then DON't enter in Google Adwords. You will loose. Accept it.

    I am not a GURU, i keep on testing different stuff in adwords, i research a lot. But now what i gonna share is a FULL PROOF way of using Adwords Casino (Yes, for me Adwords is like the online casino) in right way or method.

    Now concentrate, this is really a pure gold and i am feeling very happy to share with you.

    For adwords you need to know JUST 4 important rules:

    1) Budget:- If you think you have $100, $200 or $400 and you DEFINITELY want return on it, then you can close this thread as it's not for you. Initially, i use $50, $100 etc in my campaigns and track every click as it involves pure cash from me and the result?

    I kept on loosing very small amount day by day and if i total it, it's a BIG amount which i never wanted to spend with '0' ROI.

    So, to play fair in adwords casino, budget needs to be MINIMUM $500/day for 100-200 clicks. Yes, that is almost $2.5-$3/click. Again, if you can't afford it this is not for you.

    2) Product:- It's completely waste if you are promoting wrong product with $10, $20 commission. ALWAYS, promote your own product and it should price between $77- $147 per sale directly credited to your paypal/clickbank.

    3) Keywords:- I bid on all keywords which involves 'How to' approach, like 'how to make money online' (costs $2.36/click to be on 1st position). I ALWAYS aim to be on number 1. No2nd, No 3rd. I don't use more then 2-3 keywords. Till now i have used 3 ad groups for my 3 products.

    4) Ad Copy:- Abusive :p ... not exactly, but use your 'abusive' sense.

    Like:- Want to earn $1000.
    If you can't invest $xx
    you will loose, as always.

    (It was sample ad. Not mine)

    This way, you are already giving the price of product in ad. This may kill the CTR, however this is always challenging for searchers. they WILL click on your ad.

    Now, you have all 4 things set but how to check the product is converting?

    There are 2 options to check that:-

    1) If you have your mailing list (above 5K):- mail them and check the sales to get some idea.

    2) If you don't have mailing list :- Rent it. (Please note i have my mailing list to check the conversion of product, so i didn't personally tried any mailing list )

    NOTE:- you need to have product converting more then 5%. Also, if you dont have mailing list, go to the product page and think that, will 'you' buy it?

    While reviewing the product before promoting, always give it your 'noob' opinion and answer yourself that 'you want to buy it, if you are new to IM?'

    If you did everything carefully, start promoting it via adwords. My most of keyword price is between $2.5-$3 per click as i always remain on top.

    AMAZINGLY, i have found this thing working, You will get almost 200 clicks as google will itself lower your CPC. again, you WILL get 10-12 sales in this. I know some members will disagree to me but guys, i have tested it with 3 products (all mine) and 3 of them are profitable to me. A jackpot as i am VERY clear with my approach and mindset. now it's simple maths 10 sale with my own products is $770 to me. with $270 in profit. There may be refunds later on. but 1-2. still almost $140 profit (Scalability, do i need to explain?)

    Please note, i am sharing something which went positive for ME. Yes, i am enjoying this system. But again, if you make $4000- $5000 a month (i do) then investing $1000- $2000 back with 25% ROI is better then anything.

    i am still trying different variation and will share my profits/loss (results) with you.

    Actually, it's the 4 day of my approach. but m pretty excited, so decided to share with you.

    i know there are lot of masterminds here who might be getting far more better results then me with very less CPC. But i dont know how to do it. So, i do what i tried personally.

    This is working!

    Thanks.

    (to be continued..)

    People don't get it.
    In adwords you need to spend money to earn money.
    Yes after you find a few profitable campaigns then is much easier.
    But You need To TEST, SPLITEST and TEST Again.
    If it's a goldmine?
    For sure if you have money to invest and time.

    Hi,

    You are correct, as i mentioned there you need to have money and not a 'forced' money in which you HAVE to get ROI.

    Adwords is not for you, who want to invest 'some' amount and looking for assured returns.

    Regarding testing, i have already mentioned that i always test my products OUTSIDE of adwords thought mailing lists.

    Thanks.

    the best thing which i find out promoting your own product is that cc companies charge you next month and your paypal profit is in your hands in 2 or 3 days.that increases your investing capacity.
    @carson:congrats man.

    You just don't know anything about adwords....you think you need to stay at MAX bid, but if you watch your campaigns carefully....you will notice something MAJOR that most people miss. Retarded post.....don't tell people they will lose when you aren't even sure of what you are doing yourself.

    I noticed that you did not mention anything about landing pages, etc. Are you doing direct linking?

    Try reading the article. It's his own product.

    @Carson, congrats on a good post. There are other ways to win at Adwords, but none of them as simple and straightforward. This is solid.

    Also, after a week or 2 a funny thing will happen...those clicks you're paying a buttload of money on. If you keep a good CTR, you'll be able to lower the bid and keep top position. Your profits will go up.

    Congrats on success.. People have different methods on taming their campaigns and making great ROI.. I wouldn't take your approach for beginner, but still good none-the-less.. Hopefully you get your clicks down lower and start raking in bigger profits..

    Congrats on your success carsonrathi.

    Just a quick question in-between: How can I rep someone around here ?
    hexalor deserves to be repped after such a magnificent post.
