    Hi guys and gals,

    The last online thing I was doing was CL marketing, but that's getting just too hard and tricky for me so I'm looking for something new. I think using adwords to promote CPA or Clickbank is a good place to start but I need some tips and ideas. I'd be very happy if someone can provide me this. My budget is around $2k a month.

    Your coming into adwords at the wrong time IMO. Adwords doesnt like affiliates at all & if they pick up on the fact your promoting items for a commission, your days will be numbered with them.

    Start small with yahoo and msn first. Lower costs per click, less competition, less rules, and I have better conversions.

    Thanks for the info. I don't really want to keep it to adwords only, any PPC would work if it can make an extra buck. I put this in the adwords section because I have a online store I'm using adwords to advertise - already have an account. Im diggin into some clickbank products right now, doing some article marketing for them and yea this sounds like a cool idea.

    Here is some good reading!

    It is from Brad Callen of StomperNet fame. He was a co-founder along with Andy Jenkins. StomperNet is a training organisation for Internet marketers btw

    Google are all about user experience when it comes to adwords ads.

    They don't like direct linking to affiliate pages. They would rather see a nice looking, clean decent website with maybe some affiliate link banners being very acceptable.

    If your website isn't nice then expect to pay a lot more for your click!


    Will you get banned?

    I dunno, I don't work there! :)

    it all depends on how you're promoting your offer on adwords. i had 1 account banned, but then i fought it and the hand no choice but to apologize and say it was banned by mistake. Personally, i don't think adwords hates cpa/affiliates...it think they hate black hat techniques (flogs/fake reports/etc)

    Personally, i've tried 2 techniques w/adwords....making a squeeze page type landing page and actually making a wpblog dedicated to my offer. both where accepted by AW and qs on targetted keywords are high.

    However, i'd experiment with other search networks, but it all depends on who you're targetting. For example, what demographic uses yahoo, bing, and google for their search?

    Personally, the one network that has consistently failed for me is bing...the traffic is just too damn low. maybe in a year things will pick up.

    direct linking is possible with adsense....i've seen it done with click bank affillilates. Personally, i haven't tried it yet.....but when i have time i'll set up a campaign and see what happens.

    Yeh, stay the hell away from google. If you want to get into PPC then you can try Yahoo, but personally I would recommend focusing on media buying and PPV (aka CPV).

    That's the direction affiliate marketing is heading. Get good at those and you'll make a killing.

    There seems to be a lot of unsubstantiated advice on this thread being given as gospel. I don't believe half of it. A good marketer will always change and adapt, because otherwise you are just playing at this.
    And to say Google doesnt like affiliates is nonsense. Think about it, all those offers on cpa networks need affiliates to stay in business. Thats their marketing model.
