    Sold $3.5k worth of shit in a day. Also my first PPC campaign!

    Investment: A few minutes on finding a good product and some keyword research, $10 on AdWords and the time taken to make a badass, aesthetically pleasing landing page.

    35% conversion rate.

    w00t. Not a big deal to most of you, I'm sure, but it was nice to check my stats and see that return for so little work. Hustle hard. :D

    Nice, congrats on your first earnings. Hopefully you'll make even more as you get more familiar with PPC etc.

    Short and simple just how I like it!

    EDIT: What is that $3 and 5000? What is $3.5k? $3500 ...Sorry I am confused here.

    They no longer accept direct linking traffic. the OP clearly stated he was using a landing page.

    Yep, $3500. And it was just one product that I targeted very carefully.

    I think that's nonsense. I got a newsletter today where they said that they will introduce a new comission system that supports "direct linkers".

    But there will be a 10€ limit for all products expept DVD, Music, Books and Mp3-Downloads.

    That may only be in non-US markets because that would contradict an email they sent out on the 6th:

    You cannot direct link anymore for Ebay US, Ebay Cananda, and Endless as of May 1st.


    If he made a 6.5% commission, on $3,500 of sales he would have made about $228 in commission. If he only spent $10 like he mentioned that is a 2,280% ROI. Very nice.

    he made $139, check his little attachment screen shot. that's only 4% of $3500, so it sounds like he is promoting electronics :)

    Most likely his own domain. Squidoo wouldn't work as a landing page for a PPC campaign.

    Why? That is the commission rate for Amazon's electronics department.

    Yeah, it's whatever though. Once I'm pimping my own shit and not just getting commission I won't really give a fuck. =)
