    If you are brand new to IM, be very very careful about PPC.

    You can easily blow through that in a day and lose a ton of money. I would start off with free traffic methods first, to find out what works, what doesn't, and good conversion rates.

    If you already know what you are doing and just starting WH instead, then just make sure to do thorough research.

    PM me if you need help with anything.

    Good luck $$$$ :sombrero:

    twoj04 said it right.. be careful with PPC, its very easy to lose your shirt and have nothing (or little) to show for it. And if you go with PPC anyway, then look into the content network.

    And MOST important, learn all you can here before jumping in.

    Start with some 2nd tier search engines first before you hit Google. You can get away with lower cost per clicks and less stringent requirements.

    Once you find a working campaign that looks promising, then hit the bigger search engines. But even then, make sure you know what you're doing with tracking and setting your budget.

    plenty of people making money with whitehat.. its great cause it's long term money and you dont have to worry about not getting paid..

    try some blackhat for short term money and use that money to get you started with whitehat.

    I like how you're setting out to try new things and increase your affiliate marketing skills. White hat is incredibly exciting and I've had many joys doing it the past few months...it's not for everyone though. Be prepared to lose money in order to get data and to spend hours of research if you want to have great success.

    Keep in mind of the risks that it comes with and you'll better manage your money. I've learned that black hat and white hat differ greatly, from money-making methods, time spent to make the money, volume of leads, and much more.

    Ads4Dough is a network that a few of my friends use, it's not bad at all, just make sure to network with your ads4dough manager and talk to him often for information on how to improve your campaigns and to get higher payouts...which is VERY important with white hat. The more you make, the higher your ROI, which is a good thing...considering that you're spending money to make the money. Every penny counts.

    I've seen Gauher's PPC Formula course before, it's really interesting and will definitely benefit you if you follow it and implement your own twists and turns to it as with everything in marketing pretty much. Do not abandon BH or whatever you're using to make money now. This is NOT a good idea. You WILL lose money in the beginning, but you'll start gaining it when you have the data needed to weed out the crap that's lowering your ROI. Use BH to fund your WH ventures and you'll be good to go.

    Hopefully this helps other people, let me know if you guys have questions...just PM me.

    Dollar 800 is a good price if you know how to do search engine optimization.
    You can easily dominate good nichethat would bring constant money for a few months and wouldn't take all your money to invest in.
    If you're not that good at search engine optimization you can do a joint venture with someone who is good at it.
    Break a leg. :)

    I make $1000+ a day by targeting cpa product names.

    For example, lots of people promote ecigs, specific acai offers, colon cleanse. I will do an exact keyword bid on these products since a lot of people will search the names of these first. Even if someone is already bidding/promoting this product I will win because I know how to write copy that gets a very high CTR so I will get the placement.

    I also do landing pages. There are products that pay 30-40 and I will do a search and then copy the lp's of other marketers while changing the text and split testing.

    You must research positive and negative keywords and use these in your compaigns.

    I do cpa for content on google and get great ctr and low bids. I use keyword rockstar and have the created banners edited and split test this way.

    Probably the best way to do white hat cpa is through media buys. This is the final step and is the best because you can demo target and scale to get very low targeted clicks.
