    First of all if this is the wrong place for this please move it. I am relating more to the CPA offers so thought I would put it here.

    I also want to say thank you for everyone who has ever posted anything useful at all.

    I started IM quite a while ago. When I started I was working in the oilfield as was making a lot of money. I had a lot of money to spare for advertising and whatever else I wanted to spend it on.

    I want everyone to know that the fastest way I believe to make a SALE is through PPC. It is the quickest way with the least amount of work to get someone to your offer that is actually looking for your offer.

    Now if you do not have any money to start there are hundreds if not thousands of ways to make money on this forum that won't cost you anything, but if you have some spare coin and you want to make some sales PPC in my opinion is the way to go.

    The first thing that you need is the product. Go to your cpa network and find any product that you want to promote, anything that sparks your interest. I dont believe it matters because I think I could sell dog shit online, the key is finding that person searching for dog shit.

    So now we have our product. I use many different keyword tools, but for this we will use the Google Keyword tool because it is free. Google it.

    I am going to use the product acai fire for men for my example. Now you go on the google keyword tool and type in "acai fire for men" and you will get quite a few keywords. What you are looking for here is keywords with a lot of searches and minimum competition. Also the cheaper the keyword the better as long as it has some searches.

    Now for my little trick, which if it has been shared already, my bad, I couldn't find it. Now you have some keywords to go with, but we are going to brain storm and make up some more and then check them out with google keyword tool and I am sure you will even get more.

    So on one of my ads for example is a picture of brad pitt. So use google keyword tool and put in "Brad Pitt". Now what I have found is that there are tons of keywords that have to do with actors, songs, movies and other popular things that there is no competition for. This is where I make my big money.

    My ad for the keyword BRAD PITT - Do you want to have a body like Brad? Use the exact same supplements as brad pitt and get ripped.

    Ok so that one is kind of lame, but you get the point (I hope). You can also do this for women, with OPRAH works very well. Everyone knows that oprah is always on a diet cause she in my opinion is naturally large. So use something for a woman's diet and an ad like above.

    What this is going to do is get you cheaper keywords for a pretty targeted audience. I know that it works for me and hope that it helps all of my fellow BHW members out.

    Just remember to think outside of the box. There are so many products that have to do with so many people. Also if you can build a landing page with Oprah promoting your diet pills, think of how much better that is going to work.

    If you have questions post them on here and I will answer them, and I am sure if I can't someone here can, cause with BHW anything is Possible.

    Good points, been doing this for a while, its proven to be hit'N'miss for me. Also Oprah keys are getting way too expensive, she is probably running some herself as her team in marketing are sh*t hot. BTW what other keyword tools do you use? Any spy tools? What tracking system? It sounds like you are making $$$$ on PPC.

    I'm assuming your not just using the search network as the only promotional strategy..but also Placement Targetting...looks like your doing ok with this.

    @ http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/4287-cosminautru.html - I know the keywords for the big "O" and not orgasm are getting expensive. I am sure they are cashing in on everything. Talk about someone who can outsource everything, LOL. That was just an example.

    As for the tools I use, I like SEOQuake the best. I am not saying it is the best, but that is the one I started with and I like it. Keyword Elite is also a great tool. I like all of the elite tools. I use affiliate elite for keywords also. I find it to be a great source to rob the competitions keywords.

    @ positivenote - Yes also Placement Targetting. I also split test a lot. If I have one product that I am going to promote I will build 3 different landing pages for it. This is the best way to see what is converting the best.

    1. Black background
    2. White background
    3. Lead capture before they can see what I offer - doesn't convert as well but builds a very targetted list.

    I will also run ads for other products that are in the same niche. I do not like using google shitsense or any other form of ads on my sites. I always try to either sell advertising for my site, or set it up with ads that are in the same niche.

    I am going to write a thread about getting ppc paid for you also. It will have to do with advertising spots on your website that you sell to get money for PPC. I use this technique all the time. Actually I bought the getting google adwords free ebook when it first came out. It is long and says the same things over and over, but if you BHW it and put a twist on it, you can seriously get all of your ppc costs covered by someone else.

    Excellent post. I've masemoney with ppc in the past untill my affiliat program decided to move inhouse. The key to ppc success is testing and fine tuning. Test, tune, re-tune and after some time, you'll have a gold mine.

    I always liked working in the oilfield, but I think that is because that is all I knew. I worked about 320 days out of the year every year since I was 18 so that is all I knew.

    Tevez - I direct them to a landing page that I have made. I would suggest when starting out to build three with the same offers. Switch where the offers are on the page and do some split testing. Change the background color of the page.

    I also have one landing page that if you want a "FREE" trial to health and beauty stuff you have to opt in. What this does is captures a lead and I make many more sales from that site, because I think they are more serious if they put their information in.

    Hope that answers your questions.

    Hey EZ... are you doing this with AdWords? I only ask because the issue of Quality Score. Google hates when you bid on words that are irrelevant to your site. I guess I will need to test having the keyword, ad, and landing page all related to the celeb or person... I wonder if Google will consider that relevant. I've avoided this technique, and I am profitable with PPC but not hugely.

    You could probably get away with this easily on MSN AdCenter, and quite possibly Facebook. I would love to hear how you address QS on AdWords.

    Hi, thanks for the helpful information :D

    So, are you saying that it would be good to add keywords of famous people that have something to do with your product/offer?

    I'm new to PPC and I'm trying to learn about it first before I try anything, can you recommend any good e-books about PPC that I can read?

    Thanks!
