    Hi,

    So, I'm planning to go big with Bing Ads and Clickbank (ready to lose some money testing to find profitable campaigns).

    My overall budget is $15,000 ? but I'm obviously not going to blow it all in one go. My initial budget would be $1000 to test the waters and then slowly increase it as I learn what's working.

    I'm a complete PPC beginner, so I have no experience promoting anything via Bing (only theoretical knowledge).

    I'm planning to direct-link to Clickbank product sales pages. Since I'll be targeting health related niches where the products offer an immediate solution to a burning problem, I am not going to build an email list. I may however create a landing page for products that are converting well.

    My aim is to start slow, since there will be a learning curve. Now, given that I invest $1000 in the first month, is it practical to expect a 30% ROI? Because if I can roughly get $1300 by investing $1000, I'm willing to re-invest everything back and up my budget to $2000 the next month and so on. I have no problem re-investing everything I make along with my own money for one year or more, as long as I'm not experiencing any big losses.

    I want to be really practical with this. I'm not expecting overnight riches. I want to take a systematic approach to the PPC + Clickbank game. It's not that I don't want to take a risk. I just want to take a calculated risk so that I'm not losing money blindly. If I lose money, it should help me find products that are profitable to promote.

    Any tips or advice from marketers experienced with Bing and Clickbank would be appreciated! Only serious answers please.

    Thanks,
    Xohaib

    You will have greater success building a small affiliate website and linking to that. Direct linking to CB sales pages has a notoriously bad conversion rate.

    15k for ppc is quite the ammount. You would rip yourself off by NOT creating a squeeze page. Say, for example, that you promote fatlossfactor and capture people's emails. You can use them later to promote related weight loss products for free (you sure know there is a shitload of similar products).

    Anyway, I'm curious about your progress, as there are not so many good products to promote on Bing (matching Bing's rules AND in healthcare niche).
    Bing promotion could be hard to scale up, without creating mailing list.

    The problem with building an email list in the micro health niches (such as treat back pain) is that once someone buys a product, it would be hard to sell something else in the same niche. On the other hand, building a list in the make money niche or Internet marketing niche makes perfect sense because people are always looking for new stuff.

    I have no experience with backpain products, but for vision improvement, fat loss, muscle gain, etc... it works great.
    Remember that most of your buyers don't have a CB engine to compare between similar products.
    So it may turn out that you cross-sell other (almost identical, or new versions) products with success. Some people just must collect all the products available to solve their problem.

    You should consider this if you can find 2+ other good products to promote in your niche.
