Hello guys. Anyone miss me? I have been out for sometime to focus on my new endeavour which is PPC affiliate marketing. Basically, what I did is that I set up my ads in adwords which link directly to my affiliate link (and consequently to the merchant's page). I have heard a lot of hype (or rather, myth) about how oh so easy it is to make money out of this so-called Google Cash method, so I spent the last 5 weeks giving it a try. And the result is, very, very unsatisfactory. Dun get me wrong. Getting inside the sponsored results page is easy. I know how to nuke the other same-URL competitors out of the page and make them stay out for good. I know how to make ads with impressive CTR. I know how to split test. Etc, etc. But the thing is, I had over 300 clicks for all my ads and I GOT NO SALES!! I donno what happened here. Either the viewers leave the merchant page and purchase later - making my leads null and void, or the respective affiliate programs refuse to record a sale for me, I don't know. But I do know is making money as an affiliate using PPC is extremely difficult - if not impossible. I bailed out as soon as the costs for my ad clicks get twice higher than the potential sale of the product I am refering to. I do not intend to waste a fortune testing something which I have no idea works or not. Has anyone got any luck with using PPC to market your affiliated products? Any product categories or networks you would recommend to me? PS: Please, dun ask me to market "make money quick" or "get rich quick in your pajamas" type products. I have an innate loath in marketing them, being a fraud victim and all.
