    Dear members,
    I know that everyone is looking for a low cpc campaign, but there might be somebody here who knows what to do exactly. Okay, i want to put in 10.000 dollars next month for PPC, CPC campaign, i have only looked into Google Adwords and Facebook so far. One click costed roughly 40 cents for me. Can anyone tell me where to look for 10-15 cents cpc? I know it depends on the situation, my only requirement is that the person has to be from California who clicks on the ad. Your help would be greatly appreciated! I know it is a dangerous game and money can be burned in a few weeks, but still, i have no other ideas for advertising. Maybe banners. Okay so if not cpc what would you do, how would you spend this money to promote the site? I can send site link in PM if you wish.
    Thank you comrades! :)

    If your starting out in this DON'T whatever you do put it all in at once, pretty obvious but some people do this and think they'll make money with no problem, it's your first post, not to sure if your for real or not, but for the sake of others in this situation..

    Start with a small budget, if you see profit scale it up (start with a $25-100 budget on each campaign) for .40 a click gonna need to convert well, be very careful and stalk your campaigns like theirs no tomorrow. As soon as you see one losing money - kill it, if it profits, well happy days. Theirs no need for burning money with good testing and management.

    As for getting lower click prices, search around, if your in AdWords it's all about quality score - that's a factor of your landing page, keywords and ad copy.

    Dear Webdesign!
    Thank you four your prompt response!
    Yes, i am being real over here, i need to market California for my dating site. I have already talked to a few sales representatives of different websites where I see high ranking in alexa and they gave me pretty good deals on banner advertisement.
    As far as Adwords go i have no experience in it, but obviously i have to be more familiar with the system before putting some money into it.
    I have looked into the Google network ad in Adwords, so im not looking forward to be on the first page of the search engine, rather i want to do an ad in its network, maybe on other dating sites to have the best conversion rate possible.
    I agree on you with making smaller campaigns, and multiple ones as well. It is just hard to start and set up... But i will try.
    Actually i would be more satisfied with SPECIFIC WEBSITES giving me low cpc (15-20 cents maybe) im not a big fan of cmp. I have contacted an email database company last week and today i got a mail from them saying that 10.000 mails cost 1000 dollars and they are sending them out, its legit, i would not do spamming under any circumstances. But still, it cost 10 cents an email, maybe if every 5th person clicks on my link we are looking into 50cents a click, well....you know what i am thinking. So maybe a banner ad would be better on multiple sites (like campuscircle for example so i can reach young students in Los Angeles) but i only know few of these sites.
    usually i use alexa to get more familiar with heavily visited pages and their traffic. Yes, i will choose very carefully how i am spending this money, but i have to start in a few weeks and it still has not come together in my mind yet. Im sorry to bother you all with this, i just want to be effective like everyone else :)
    The site also works with Facebook (we have an appication) so maybe we will do an ad on FB point to the application (costing 48 cents right now).
    Oh and my site is 100% free to use, and better than any one on the market right now in terms of features.
    Any more ideas by any chance?
    Thank you for your time again!

    BE VERY CAREFUL from past experience when you find an unknown source of traffic with low cpc the conversion ratio is going to suck

    Thanks Mark,
    I am aware of the fact that this is a mind field.
    But still im wondering how to spend my money more effectively.
    How about CPA?
    I will contact Neverblue tomorrow, it looks very promising out of the list i got from the other topic here.
    I hope they operate around 2 dollars a lead so i can have 5000 users spending 10.000 dollars a month.
    Who knows what is the most effective campaign....
    Its a tough one.
    But thanks! :)
