    Hey guys,

    The purpose of this thread is to share your experience with PPC for CPA offers.

    First off, I will tell you that PPC is the first method that I actually generated some cash from :D I tried FB fanpages, blogging, list building, but nothing gave me the speed that PPC delivers. So, I think PPC is the way for me to follow.

    I like PPC especially with CPA offers because firstly it is very fast, and secondly it is easier to promote that CB products. But, the only thing is that it is costly.

    I ran my first campaign on AdWords with a $70 voucher for a CPA offer. To my surprise, I ran it for $0.01/click. And even more surprisingly, the traffic I got was from mobile phones. I was getting crazy clicks - 6000+ clicks in 5 days. I think that is the reason I was able to make $40 like that on my first campaign itself. However, if I would have optimized my landing page and actually tracked everything I would have made a lot more. I can't do that anymore because I am out of money :(

    I know that super affiliates for CPA networks are making a "killing" with PPC. I have come across a lot of them. It seems like they are also spending a "killing" with it as well.

    So if there are any supermen out there willing to share tips, please feel free to do so.

    P.S. If you feel generous, you can hire me to work on your campaigns (or something similar) so that I can learn advanced PPC tactics, and help you in turn. I am not desperate, just want to master this thing with your help.

    Ran out of money! What about the $40 you made?! :)

    You sound keen and know what you need to do. Just go make some quick cash and get going! Build some websites for people, mow lawns, rake leaves, sell something you dont need! Whatever it takes.

    For that money you were really hauling in the clicks, did you get a list out of it? I've always been skeptical about mobile advertising but it sounds like you might be on to something.

    Can't say its too exciting that you made only $40. While you used a voucher (thus free money), if you do the math and assuming you or someone was willing to spend $70 in real money, then you would have lost $30. Something is wrong with that equation

    Indeed, he LOST $30.

    Can money be made with PPC? u bet ur ass it can be made! but it takes money/time to learn this stuff properly. I ran a few campaigns in YSM some time ago and broke even with some ringtone offers, I have yet to try adwords. I'll join a PPC-oriented forum to get some tips on getting that stuff going cause I think adgroups are different in Adwords.... in YSM I remember you could add a bunch of keywords per group but in Adwords is only like 25 KW per group.... which makes me wonder how the hell am I going to manage a 10-15K keyword list into those small groups

    Yes guys, I am aware of that I really lost money if I had used real money. But, it was just a test in the first place and I didn't actually expect to make anything. I just wanted to get my feet wet. But, to get $0.01 clicks and make $40 out of it was just something I discovered and got lucky with.

    @Herbert
    I did not have a quality score because I ran image ads on content network, if that answers your question.

    come on now guys, he is only asking for some advice, my advice to you, would be to build a webpage with your offer, and SEO it to hell then build some backlinks, and rinse and repeat on that part. also, you may want to run the campaign at a higher ctr so you rank a little higher, yes, there are people spending thousands out there per day but making it all back to be a profit of maybe 50 bucks a day. so, just make sure you have a optimized page and build traffic for it first , then go ahead and deal with the ppc . you always start out small, always,

    lol dude you're wrong about adwords....I personally used 15k keywords on this campaign...and adwords is a lot tougher bro...in ysm you can direct link, but adwords you must have a full fledged 10-15 page website.

    I have done my HW bro...I know the basics down pretty good, I have seen the ppc formula 2.0 vids...I am looking for expertise over here.

    Thanks for the advice bro...you talk like you have quite some experience with this...seems like you have also lost a lot thats why you're suggesting to go small...anyways it is best to learn from others mistakes...so I appreciate your advice.

    I probably should have made a list...then again aweber costs money and I already ran out of the $1 trial thing...I definitely need to make money before I invest in ppc.

    Guys, if you are getting the idea that I am bragging or I am claiming to be a pro, then you are wrong. Sorry for wording the thread like that...but I am only looking for pro ADVICE over here. And if you feel generous you can offer more...you know what I mean!

    There are many cpa networks, I use peerfly and maxbounty for now...I am going to join neverblue soon.

    There are many ranges of offers...range from $1-$40 or maybe more than that, but thats the normal range.

    Search around on BHW you will find many cpa ebooks in the downloads section.

    There is a good course called "How I made $1,000 in three days" that I believe is in the download section. It's by a british lady that has sorta of a manly voice but that is neither here or near, you might want to check it out. It has to do with ppc and clickbank. I haven't used google ppc because it's so expensive. I would think that there are better alternatives to get your feet wet like facebook ads and twitter. Good luck anyhow.
