Am I missing something here?

    This is a real existing web business

    Basic website advertising two products. Owner spends up to $150 a
    day using only Google adwords. User goes to website and
    clicks on a product and that brings them to another site.
    They sign up / purchase product and owner gets commission. Averages $3000 a month profit.


    I am very new to all of this and don't even have a website yet. I have no web design experience either.
    I started looking around and noticed what appears to be a good tool. Coffee cup. Is this product good?

    I'm pretty sure I could create a similar site with this tool and advertise with adwords. I have no experience
    with adwords either but I doubt if it is that tough. If I did this is there any reason I couldn't make it work?
    I realize the risk of loss from $150 a day in adwords but I would be willing to test it out to see what happens.

    Like I said, I have no experience with internet marketing. Am I missing something here? This particular business does not sound that hard.

    Just search for the term"adword" and you will have plenty of ebooks.

    You could always use wordpress and add a decent theme. You could also create a blogger account and not even have to buy the domain. Talk about the product you want to promote, write some articles, submit to social bookmark site and your on your way. Enovator is correct tho, search this forum and you'll find a buttload of info and the tools you need to make dat money!

    I'd write out your own little plan sheet since your new to the game.. Listing anything from your targeting niche, traffic tips, etc.. I would def try out blogger for first timers, unless you want to invest in a hosting/domain.. Maybe later on you can transfer your vistors to your actual domain..

    Anyways you have the right idea.. I just wouldn't start out thinking it's a get rich scheme. It's not, depending how hard you work it could take you months before you obtain a sell.. Ive never dealt with CoffeeCup.. If you look around though, there is a ton of website creating software.. I use adobe/Dreamweaver.. That could take a while for someone starting out, easy to learn though if your patient.. Lot of trial and error.. Unless you follow YouTube tutorials..

    I would check out XSitePro, heard good stories(never used though) and they also have some custom templates floating around which could benefit you..

    Once you get your first site down with decent traffic flow, just rinse and repeat those methods to other sites.. Don't forget your older ones those, unless you get #1, then it's just maintenance.. Also if you find a good niche you shouldn't need much of adwords if any..

    I would spend some time in the ebooks section if I was you, for starters.. Some of the shit doesn't work all that well, but the majority is educational.. Get a good test-to-speech cause that shits boring..

    Most people use a simple landing page instead of a website. Which is just a big one page website. You know that your traffic is interested because they clicked your add, don't distract them with a whole informative website. Keep it to point. Monetizing a website is a whole different game.

    Clickbank has good products you can advertise. Some even supply the landing page for you. You can try this out with vouchers that give you free credit in adwords, there should be plenty of information about that on this forum.
    Don't just step in it thinking 'oh this is no big deal'. When you are searching to buy something online, what kind of advertisement would interest you and what kind of search terms do you type in google?

    I feel pretty much the same about open heart surgery, I've got a good sharp knife how hard can it be ?

    Anyone can put together a site, but a site that sells?

    Anyone can set-up an adwords campaign, but a campaign that works?

    It's not about spending money on adwords, it's about spending time to learn.

    I was referring to an actual site in my post. It is very basic. I can create the same site very easily. It must be the adwords campaign. I guess its harder then it looks.
