    I realize how this is going to sound, but every bit of it is true. I received a call yesterday from a Fortune 500 client of ours, honest to god begging us to burn through $100,000 as fast as we can. Without hesitation I promised we could do this and rattled off an 11 prong attack.

    Here's the catch, conversions are secondary but that's how we get paid. Click costs need to fall in the $.20-$.30 range (the cheaper the better) and they need to see about 400,000 clicks.

    I would love to hear your thoughts! If you were given $100,000 to generate cheap quality traffic and your payday were the commissions generated by that traffic what would you do??

    How about you let me setup a PPC search engine, and charge $100 per click, and you get clicks to it.

    What is being sold? Do you care about the origin (US only?) What is a conversion to you?

    I'd keep 90% of the money form myself and then I'd go to some forums and hire indians or people who are willing to work for low rates.

    I'm one of the original Google Adwords optimization specialists- worked at Google for 3 years.

    Depending on what you're selling, I may be able to help in return for a profit share. Let me know if you're interested.

    I'm impressed that a Fortune 500 company is willing to give you $100,000 if you really don't know how to spend it.
