    This has nothing to do with BH.

    I have promoted many different products through clickbank using msn adcenter (banned from google and yahoo is too expensive), mainly software, ebooks or other non physical goods.

    And 90% of the campaigns never bring in any profit, so this is what I do with them.

    1) Build massive keywords list, remove All the negative keywords.
    2) set the maximum Cost Per Click to 0,05$. That is the minimum bid on adcenter but its also my maximum.

    I spend about 2-3$ per day depending on the campaign (thats 40-60 clicks). And I also make about 1 sale in every 2-3 days ( (25$ average for sale). This system has prooved to be quite foolproof. But you cant do it in Adwords because the CTR is too low and they will hit your bids right up.
    Im using www(dot)platinumpartner(dot)com for finding products to promote.


    I have several campaigns running like this, so If you have something "paused" because it didnt bring in then try it.


    Any positive/negative feedback is welcome!

    sounds interesting. I do ok with adwords so hopefully this could bring in a few more sales. Thanks for the share.

    You will never make money with such an approach and such a mentality.

    Actually Aare has hit on something here.

    I won't hijack this thread as he/she is explaining what they do, but Aare it doesn't have to be pennies. I see your promoting with CB so I must ask are you capturing emails before the offer?

    I can't stress how important establishing list members and promoting backend offers is in Paid Advertising. I know we are talking low traffic with AdCenter, but the net is growing:)

    Also, I have noticed that conversions are considerably better there for optins. I think it's because they are so setup as a consumer type search engine. But, multiple your efforts across many niches and definitely going to have to have a ton of keywords and you can turn a nice profit on adcenter.

    Since the campains are not profitable the "normal" way Im actually making money I would otherwise lose. This is not my main tactic, but I have 6 campaings running like this and they bring in somewhat 700$ per month.
    Not much but cost for advertising is very small, the risk is minimal and I dont need to work on them (worrying for CTR...).

    I have to admit Im not capturing the emails, mainly the products are one timers, for example Antivirus program and building a targeted list of antivirus buyers hasnt been a priority. But if you say it works I will try. I have somewhat 6000 antivirus targeted emails from the sales Ive made but emailing to them would be spam.

    But you are right that the conversions using adcenter are better than overture, and a lot better than adwords.

    Aare is definetly a he.

    How's Platinum Partner working for you?

    I came across them awhile back and noticed that they have a higher payout for many CB products then if I used my CB link directly. Is this correct?

    I've tried this in the past, with PlantinumPartner products too, it really does work well if you have a large keywords list.

    Theyr payout varies between 18$-33$ depending on what other services the customer chooses. Average is about 25$. But I like them.
