    Hey guys
    Just to tell you that I made my first sale using adwords!
    Ive been doing a lot of other stuff to make money online but this is the first time I ventured in this line.

    I invested in a product ( ebook) , worked for like 8 days on the sales page and brought in traffic using adwords with my own money. no coupons or stuff cause coupons dont work in my reigon.


    it took me 161 clicks to get my first sale. The product is worth $77. Its not that great cause Ive read a lot that a good conversion ratio is 3-4% whereas mine is 0.75% :(
    I pay an average of $0.11 per click which means I had to spend about $18.67 to make the $77 which I think is not a bad start at all. I get the cash directly in my paypal and theres no need to wait for cheques to clear.

    My avg ad positioning is 12 which i guess is not bad considering the low amount I pay. My ad gets a score of 7-9/10 for most keywords.

    This was only to tell you that there is hope and to never stop trying.. its hard sometimes but in the end its always worth it...

    key is: NEVER STOP TRYING!


    I do have like $300 a month of clean money to spare; if anyone knows any other good/safe/guaranteed returns method which I could do, let me know!

    nah mate.
    The product I advertise is not something which might work well on facebook.
    Though I might give it a go if a get a coupon for facebook or some thing but I surely dont want to put in money in it.

    Adwords and Adcenter are the best when it comes to ppc- in my opinion

    Paying $19 to earn $77 is awesome. If you can keep up this conversion rate, it is already a winner.

    That is awesome!

    I am still looking into ways of earning money, but I do not feel confident enough to start on something yet.

    Wow very nice! It's time to start split testing and making a better ROI! Hopefully you can get another sale soon without spending more than $20 in PPC. Keep us updated! Love to read good stories on BHW.
