    Hello Guys,

    I am a newbie in this section so please doing bother if I ask some bothering questions.

    Well, I have a UK based car insurance site which is promoting a car insurance comparison affiliate program which pays 2 pounds for each qualified quote and I am earning 8-10 pounds a day with 50 visitors on my site a day.

    Now, I just want to earn more and plan to start a PPC campaign but when I see the CPC, I got frustrated. My calc says I am earning $.50/click on affiliate banner and CPC at Google is $3-$30-$50. Now I dont understand how to earn with paid traffic.

    I am looking here for help and ideas to earn more with paid traffic and now its a challenge for me to earn with this but dont know how? Can you guys please help me out and tell me how can I earn profits with paid traffic in this condition.

    Note:- I cant show my site because as everybody knows I cant disclose my niche:)

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Precisely. I work for a digital agency, we pretty much have 3 floors dedicated to PPC. And the amount of money we spend on behalf of our clients is ridiculous.

    If you want to do ppc ads , then buy adwords voucher and run your ad campaign for free. Extremephp sells them, ask him for details.

    Try other traffic sources like Adcenter and Facebook to see if you can get cheaper clicks. On facebook you can make a fan page for UK Auto Insurance or whatever you want to call it and send traffic there first. Ads are easier to get approved to a fanpage, plus it seems that the clicks tend to be a little cheaper.

    If you're a newbie stay away from Google Adwords for competitive markets like car insurance. As others have said, the big companies have £££'s to spend. Unless you're experienced you will lose money, fast. I'd suggest SEO'ing your site and use PPC for less competitive niches, once you have worked out your budget.

    But the key here is, don't spend on PPC what you can't afford to lose. For a beginner, it's a gamble.
