    First post, been reading a lot of the stuff on here and after trying a few different techniques I decided to give harro's poll technique a go. Tried to see if I could get some cheap clicks from adbrite to send to my poll. Long story short I have now accumulated 47 clicks with only 3 or 4 people actually voting (?!) and of course a big fat zero conversion on a simple email submit. Here's my text ad:

    Win Louis Vuitton Purse!

    Vote In Our Poll - Enter Email to get a free Louis Vuitton Purse!


    You're gonna tell me 43/47 mofos clicked on this shit, landed on my page and saw exactly what the ad suggested and said, "WTF, a louis vuitton poll?!?! Oh my, I've been tricked! What a deceiving ad I just clicked let me close this shit ASAP!"

    Anyway, my question is the following:


    Are you fucking kidding me?!

    PPC advertising is no more about how many impressions you manage to achieve .. its all about the bloody conversions where IMHO copyrighting which helps in creating a 'feel of urgency', 'fear of loosing' etc plays a major role. Its about how you make your ad communicate and what feel it triggers inside of a potential customer to make moves you want him/her to make.

    There is a hell lot of difference in saying 'Buy my money making ebook' and 'Click Here for a fail proof fu*king oppertunity'

    Read this ebook which have helped many PPC marketers and Im sure there is something for you in it

    And I dont recommend you calling those ppl mofos and your labour a shit. Its simply isnt an apt attitude mate ..

    Anyway, Read this ebook which have helped many PPC marketers and Im sure there is something for you in it ..

    Goodluck,

    47 views is nothing. especially if they are not targeted. you should be advertising on a handbag site, otherwise you'll only get 1 conversion out of 1000 views.

    I really appreciate your guys' input.

    I just find it weird that for ex. posting a few comments on articles that are related to a given cpa offer has given me over 15% conversions while me actually spending money on a targeted ad on adbrite's content network has given me nothing. Some of you guys make it sound so easy ;) j/k, I know most people work really hard around here and I never expected it to be easy. Gotta keep grinding!

    I've always been skeptical of companies like this. If we can automate clicks to websites then you know they can. What's to keep them from generating BS traffic? It seems like they could make a lot of money due to the number of desperate internet marketers out there waiting to be skinned. Maybe I'm just too cynical.

    Dude, that's why I sell products. It's more money per conversion and makes it worth the effort.

    maybe from your ad copy, they except to see a game. then they see a poll, and they think "oh, this is bs" just because it wasn't what they were expecting.. so maybe for ad copy you should include something like "VOTE NOW and win a free Louis Vuitton Purse"

    that way, it should reduce clicks of the people who aren't going to vote. the more related your ad copy is to your landing page, the better. that way there is less room for losing people in the transition. you can do what you want, but that's what I would do. good luck

    EDIT:
    Also, you probably shouldn't do ppc for low paying email submits. there are some email submits that are worth it, because they pay way more. you just have to find them

    maybe ...

    your photos suck?
    not enough photos?
    people are so used to the scam FREE LAPTOP shit - and know they wont win

    Perhaps show the purse in a video posted on youtube that plays automatically
    - show where THE PURSE they can win is located ( trust /desire etc )

    Maybe that will help conversion.

    Best

    Actually adbrite to adsense arbitrage can be very lucrative. I did that 2 years ago and was making $8k/month before they banned me. Then I became very poor.

    That's when I learn to have several small biz rather than 1 big ones.
