    Hi BHW,

    I just got my 1st cpa account approved and I decided to do ppc to drive traffic to a email submit. I am surprise to see only 3 impression intead of 13,000 which was projected by ad centre.

    Calling for help ? Any advise whether adword is what you use or other ppc network you use can generate traffic and quality lead.

    I will be out of work by next month. 1k is all I have and I am trying to min the risk and not hitting the blind spot. Looking at a lot of you make it and some make it big is really motivating. I wish to learn from you. :)

    The zero friction marketing program devotes an entire module on the benefits of using MSN for ppc and cpa offers. The program also teaches you how to use myspace (really cheap ppc) advertising with cpa offers.

    MS is a good place to start, especially if you're considering The Big G. Cost Per Click On MS and even Yahoe are generally cheaper than on adwords. Much more lenient as well when it comes to things like quality score and the like.

    I would suggest starting there and hawkeye your spending budgets given you are looking to minimize risk. You can lose that 1k in 15 minutes on G if you don't know what you're doing.

    MSN is the easiest for the 3 for breaking even or even profiting.

    but i doubt your decision to go with an email submit.

    I prefer to do my email submit ppc marketing with 7search/Findology. The cost is low .01-.03 which gives me an advantage in getting more traffic to my landing pages. I've been able to average 55 clicks equals an email submit.

    Perhaps try it out while your MSN campaign is being fine tuned:)

    Findology is almost considered a PPV network, so you can expect far better conversion on MSN, although yuor CPC will have to be much higher,

    You're probably getting few conversions as your CPC is set too low.

    And email submit tends to pay around $1.50, and conversion rates should be anywhere between 5-50%.

    Crank up the CPC for a day, set a reasonably low budget, and see what % it converts at. From there you will be able to scope what CPC you will need to make it profitable.

    Be sure to make several ad variations to find the one with the best CTR.

    Cheers

    Just my 2 cents.....

    Read up on what you are doing before you do it. There is a ton of info out there on the interweb about ppc marketing.

    MSN is a good place to start, but you do not start with an email submit

    If you are going to promote ppc, I highly suggest promoting something with a free trial cc submit.

    1. You are going after very targetted traffic because you are choosing your keywords to drive laser target traffic to your offer.

    2. If you are capable I also suggest designing your own landing page to split test with, and if you can put more offer then one in front of these people you will do better. I don't suggest 20 offers, but a little choice is good.
    a. if you can build your own landing page, read up on split testing, and hear is something that I don't know if everyone does but it makes me quite a large amount of money - my tip for the month.

    - Get an aweber account and on your landing page, capture their information. The money is in the list. Get a big enough list and you no longer have to pay for advertising. That last one is my opinion so take it for what it is worth.

    Tip #2 - Look for bizz opps or health stuff. Think of some good long tailed keywords...

    If you have any questions to what I have said, I will do my best to answer them, as PPC is kind of my money maker.

    ZFM is good for someone new to the game. If you've hung out here for any length of time, you probably won't learn much new from the package. I think you can find it in the downloads section.

    MSN Adcenter is good especially for beginners I think..
    Its cheaper and less competition and I was surprise the very first time I run it, I got a $30 commission for just $2 in less then 3 hours for a work from home CPA offer..

    I've been doing better with MSN and YAHOO than I have ever done on google.

    There is WAY less competition, and if You can think outside the box, their terms are ALOT more relaxed.

    Usually I can break even right off the bat on MSN about 1/3 times. From there I just scale it a bit and move on to the next one.

    They might not have the traffic, but if you can spread out into different areas, the profit is definitely there.
