    PPC is like gambling, you win some, you lose some. If your not looking to invest, you should try out some article marketing, that's pretty easy/quickish cash.

    Well instead of put all on red you could use some of the keyword services like keywordspy or such and see what might work and make it work rather than checking "oo thats good one, 100$ ppc lets see what happends:p"

    Imo I would stay away. Since this is a post about losing $40.00. You will probably shit a brick in a couple days.

    reminds me of a post by T.SAgo over on WA

    "Noobs-Adwords graveyard littered with your souls"

    PPC can be very lucrative but you better know what yer doing and get those LP's dialed in

    You need keywordspy.
    You need to research your niche and copywriting your ads.
    You need your own ideas use your brain instead of copying others which never work for you.
    You need to build your QS score bease on:
    1. CTR
    2. Your Ads & keywords for it
    3. Revelent Landing page for the keywords
    4. Content of your ads and landing pages have to be related to the content network you choose to show your ads.

    FINALLY YOU NEED MONEY TO GAMBLE WITH ADWORDS! WELCOME TO THE GAME!

    40 bucks is not a lot in PPC land. Might want to try CL postings you can see your money come back very quickly

    ... This is why I usually stay away from pc models they are subject to so much inflation.. I can pay a few bucks to get a single view or with ppv get a few thousand views... At least with ppv you know your getting exposure. Now ppc can be much more responsive but it really requires dedication and matching things just right. I would discourge newbs from ppc until you understand Internet markeeting, landing pages, roi tracking, writing ad copy, etc. Once you have mastered those skills you are much more likely to get the roi your looking for.

    bro, weneva, you advertise on adwords, always make sure you put an optin form for email ids, & phone numbers(if possible), use exit traffic negotiator to understand why they are leaving, or if possible try providing them live support using craftsyntax(use forced invitation).

    This really helped me in generating my leads database, plus i had their phone numbers in hand. Obviously i paid for the traffic, so i wanted atleast that much data, & once i had the data i realised, why they left, & started mailing them with some exciting offers, so even though they left, most of them gave me their contact details & valuable feedback, When you pay for traffic, this is something you should expect in return

    You have to first lost money to earn money (at least most of time). You need to learn how to find profitable keywords in PPC.

    I always recommend to start with SEO to earn good cash (with little investments) and then expand to paid advertising like Adwords with bigger money which you can afford.

    nah. but thanks.
    Let me say one thing, you CANT use PPC with money you are not ready to lose.
    I lost $600 bucks and I'm 14 :D
    It was actually just $100 of my own and a $500 coupon thing I got.

    I'm just happy I lost it, I learned that while I am poor I do something else.
    But I like paid advertising so I'll return to PPC, PPV and other things.
