    Remember that clickbank has a 60 day cookie so someone still may return and purchase so you haven't lost any money just yet :D

    Would you say $0.45 a click is a good price for the niche your targeting? I'm currently paying around $0.50 a click in my niche so if I could get clicks at a similar price that convert as well then buySellAds could work out for me.

    I will probably give them a try in the next few days and post my findings here.

    Never heard about buy sell ads. I'll give it a try.

    I'll build a list instead of redirecting to the offer, So i keep the traffic for myself.

    Will let you know how it went.

    Dude for a $3 loss a list of 110 would be an awesome price. Rince, repeat and when you've spent say $100, Your list would be shiny as fuck an you would make some decent money.

    Not a bad start to a method but, you shouldn't give up. Maybe just modify it. If you want to know how you can build a list, hit me up I can show you.

    Are you kidding? You managed to almost break even on your first try and you are not tweaking the shit out of that thing? :D

    Whenever I run any kind of paid advertisment (media buys / ppc stuff) and I reach break even or almost break even, I know that I have a potential winner right in front of me!

    Tweak the ad, tweak the landing page (create one), maybe try a similar product and go for it! You can obviously buy 1.000 targeted hits for like 30 dollars there, that will give you more than enough data to optimize the thing and make it profitable.

    Plus, as buzilla already stated, you may already have made some profit.

    This is a great result bartono!

    You have just given me a nice idea, will buy ads and instead of directing them to the product, will build a list!

    Also, have you checked the gravity of the CB items you are promoting - do they have high gravity and proven, converting sales pages?

    Have just ordered a 125x125 sidebar ad, 50,000 impressions per month for $49.

    The ad is pointing to a squeeze page that collects emails, upon successful email submission I send user to a offer.

    Squeeze page was converting sign up's from Facebook ads at 35% with an average click of $0.50 will see how BSA performs, hopefully its successful and I can scale up.

    That's probably one of the smartest things said on BHW for weeks. Kudos to you for understanding the value of learning/education by execution.

    Well done mate. I have no doubt in my mind you'll be making a killing in no time at all.

    How do you guys make the squeeze pages. I mean do you offer something for their name and email or ...?
