    Hi Guys,

    Recently I tried to test clickbank + Bing ads method and see if ppc is really profitable. I opened two accounts, added 50$ in 1st and 100$ in 2nd.

    I chose a good product with about 120 gravity and with affiliate tool page. I had an old domain (something relating to deals and offers) lying idle,

    so thought of using it for testing before buying domains for each product. I pointed my domain to the landing page provided by that product.

    So my home page had that product landing page. There after, I set up an ad (on 50$ a/c), added lot of kws but removed some with high click rate

    as I did not want my account to be consumed soon but get lot of clicks. I started monitoring the clicks then which started coming after sometime.

    I was really surprised to see my first sale (45$) in 23 clicks! The next also happened at night in about 60 clicks! so I had made 2 sales and still had

    about 25$ left in my a/c. I was thinking the ROI was pretty good since I was doing this first time.

    Then I thought of increasing the products and using my 100$ a/c. Since I had just 1 domain available, i thot of using subdomains like

    www(dot)(productname)(dot)(my main domain).com ( www.xxx.yyy.com). I created such 3-4 subdomains and added ads for similar 3-4 products.

    Thereafter, though I am getting clicks, but no sales. Now I have used up almost 150$ in ads but made only about 90$ thru those first 2 sales.

    Please help me understand, where I went wrong, what was I doing right and how could I set a better compaign. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You went wrong by assuming that you can judge the true average out of 100~ pool sample.

    You tried to do to much.

    You had a winning campaign in the first product and you should stick with that.

    If you want to expand you need to do it at one product at a time.

    Stick to what works and expand 1 product at a time, not 3

    I guess it was a mistake, but the fact remains that clicks were still coming fast and they were getting linked to product page.

    Do you think the other products were bad ? I didn't even get sale for first product after those 2.

    You went wrong when you signed up at Clickbank.

    Well did I hurt your feeling by choosing clickbank ? If you can't suggest, don't just be try to behave a cool dude here.
    If I would have showed it as a journey how I made my first 100$ in a day, you people would have gone nuts in praise.
    I tell the truth and this is how you hit.

    Yes real bad.

    $100 in a day using ClickBank and Bing ads. CEOSam could probably see that one round of Bing ads is not something to go off.

    Don't get yourself too upset. At least you tried. May I suggest finding something better than Click bank?

    I was reading your situation as it was very familiar to some of the things I realized from back in the day. This is what I'm wondering:

    Is it the same keywords for the "similar products"? Because that will destroy you, you're bidding against yourself.
    If not, if new keywords, do the new keywords fit those new products as well as the first ones did for the first product?
    Is it possible the new products' sales processes are just crap compared to the first product's?
    Are the bids the same?
    Have competitors taken your spots on the paid ads positions?
    If you got no sales, is your processor/hoplink still working (check it)?

    100 should have given you a wide enough sample so as not to swing away as much as it has, but if you've changed the variables like you have, there are so many things that could have gone awry in the PPC-Clickbank game.

    anyway I am 9$ short of 100 and want to withdraw the money. Any easy way to get that 9$ to complete my 100 and be able to withdraw.
