    Hello. I've been reading these forums for some time now and little by little I'm starting to get a grip of all this IM stuff. I started up lazy as I had no idea what method I should start with as everything seemed overly-complex and overwhelming.

    3 months ago I decided to start with clickbank. I picked a few products related to gaming, as that's my interest, and started promoting them. The "easiest" method I knew how to promote something was to spam social sites and random blogs with my direct affiliate link using BuzzBundle. Luckily enough, I had my first sale on the first day! I was so pumped for this that I continued the same spamming for about a week with no sales until I realized I was just lucky with the first sale and I should do things differently. I dropped the whole IM for about a month as I felt frustrated for spamming so much with no sales and didn't bother to read for other methods.

    So about a month from that I came up with a plan to try a different product and use bing ads + direct linking to affiliate page to see how ads generate and convert traffic. This was still a lazy way, but it did pay off. I was making steady sales (1-3 per week) and even generated profit after ad fees. So this is what I've been doing up until now.

    4 days ago I made a site to promote this specific product to get "free" traffic to my affiliate link and already made a sale through it, so I'm happy where this is heading. I have a few ideas where to go from here and how to execute them. I'm so happy how much I've learned in these few months reading countless of journeys and methods, so Thank You BHW members! :)

    Thanks. Actually I got "Paid" status to my clickbank paycheck today and that's the main reason I'm writing here now (and it's direct deposit btw ;)). I also have almost half of the next $100 threshold ready on my account :)

    Nice! How much did you spend on bing ads? :) I've been wanting to try it out for a long long time, but have never taken action, as I'm afraid I'll lose all my money, haha!

    Now all you got to do is scale it up! :)

    I've spent about 80€ in ads (+30€ coupon) and I've generated 135€ from sales. Please note that this is because of being highly unoptimized due to lack of knowledge and testing many other products with no sales, so I'm sticking to just the product that converts and from now on my ROI should go way up :)

    Are you promoting your "free traffic" site by posting on social media and blogs like you did originally?

    Yes, I have made around 10 posts on blogs to drive some traffic to the site. I will also do more keyword optimization for my articles as I know I'm still lacking in that field.

    What is the gravity of the product you are promoting?

    I check products with gravity between 5 and 30ish. Have not tried promoting products with higher gravity just yet.

    Maybe try split testing with a landing page, it may convert better ;) (and you're building a list)

    Congrats Man, however I think it's best you link to a landing page first, that way you are buiding your list and hopefully making sales.
