    I had been accepted to my first CPA affiliate program about a week ago(CPAWay) afterwards i searched for an easy campaing to start off with, i found this iphone 5 submit offer which pays about 1.3$ for every submit then i signed up for 7search and charged it with about 100$ i opened my first campaing with low bids, right now i have spent a total of 65$ and only made about 12$ i was wondering if someone could tell me what did i do wrong? should i leave 7search and move to bing ads/facebook? and are iphone offers converting?

    all help is appericated!

    Sign up with Adwork Media, and search for UK offers, they have nigh converting UK offer with EPC above 0.30$. Also take a look at Australian offers :), you will make much more money for sure.

    Stay away from 7search...use tracking202 and see how your keywords are performing.

    Stay away from all PPC advertising, it ain't for starters, by that I mean low budget. PPC can drain your budget very quickly with no returns, it needs lots of funding to perfect the ads.

    I made 5 campaigns with 7serarch and lost about $300. The traffic is shit.

    Can you tell me more about the bing ads? They didn't accepted me and i don't know why.

    Ive not tested 7search yet, but I have not seen even one good review so far. :D
    Bing Ads are very powerful. I even put them over Adwords. From my testings there are more "buyers" on Bing. :)
    Also dont forget FB. If you are only doing CPA, I do favour FB over Adwords.

    But I wouldnt go with PPC anyway. Too little ROI, too high Risks of getting your Money burned. OR you do it slowly and wisely, but then you'll spend a hell lot of time optimizing.

    you need to track ur ads, offers and out of 50 or more combination of keywords/ads/landing pages/offers/different networks You will find only 1 combination that bring profits to you

    use prosper202 to be able to track what u r doing

    Don't believe everyone here....

    7Search can be very good in certain niches but you have to take some extra steps (especially with them).

    1. Get Prosper202 set up if you are serious. You need data to succeed in PPC.
    2. Track traffic from URLs and have 7Search block those sites that are junk (bot traffic, etc)

    The fact that you had conversions is a good thing. Most people drop campaigns WAY too early. Some of that traffic converted, now you just need to identify WHICH traffic, drop the rest, and scale if possible.

    Regards,

    Try PPV but getting the right keyword and URL is the key to success. Make landing page for zip submit.

    Adcenter is banning like crazy these days. If you call them I'm sure they'll unban you once they see you're using real money.
