    Ok guys this my first journey and so I hope to learn a lot from it. Since I haven't seen to many PPC journey I figure I start 1.


    So to start it off I been doing some research an decided to go with Bing Ads or aka Adcenter. The reason I choose Bing because I been hearing Adcenter Has better conversion rate but less traffic. Mean I won't blow a load so fast lol! The budget is $650 this month. The goal well for starters is to make a profit am not looking for much on the first run but maybe a couple $100's more then the budget. So let's get down to it.



    • Using Adwords because I can get a better ideal Best keywords in my niche.
    • Building my landing page and am using Dreamweaver I know, I know I could have used Wordpress and be done in 10 mins but I had a certain look in mind.
    • What am I using to track my keywords Prosper 202 I heard it's really good and free;)
    • Last 1 just good tips and encouraging advice from my fellow blackhatters!
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Good Luck, I assume you already read some books on PPC? I would recommend you to do so in order to start your account with the right foot.

    Cheers,
