Well after being out of the IM game for a good 6 months it's time for me to get back in. My background in IM was ranking blogs and making money off Amazon and Adsense. I have never paid for advertising so this is a whole new learning experience for me. This journal is to help track my progress, keep me motivated, and hopefully get some helpful suggestions from you veterans. I started by finding a product on clickbank, it has a good gravity, and pays $20 a sale. I signed up for an account at Sitescout. I added my credit card and am awaiting approval on it. Will deposit $500 to begin with. I found 2 sites that are very related to my product and added a 300X250 and a 728X90 banner to each site. Just have to wait for my CC to be approved then wait for these 2 campaigns to be approved. I set a CPM bid of $1.00 and a total daily budget of $6. My plan for now is to spend about $200 a month for 2 months just to get a feel for this whole media buying. After my initial $500 is gone I'll see where I'm sitting and decide if this is for me or not. Any feedback/suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Wish me luck!
