    I have heard people are making money with the poll method and email submits... is still feasible on adwords?

    I gave it a go with Poll Factory on my old adwords account and that account hates me... going to get a new account started.

    Any tips? Stick with the content network and just follow trends?

    Yess the poll method still works for me. You just have to get something good and quick before someone else does it

    Thanks for the quick reply, what price clicks are you getting? Are you advertising solely on the content network? Are you using lots of keywords or just one?

    It still works. I just made about $350 in 2 days with the Poll below:

    Who do you think can get more girls? One of the Jonas Brothers or Tim Tebow? Then I had a picture of each under their name and a cpa offer that paid $1.30.

    I ran this ad on a network of sites through pulse360 and bingo money made. My ad spend through pulse360 was $150. The $350 was all profit. I really made a little more but I had to deduct the ad spend. So $350 is what was profited.

    You have to think hard and money can be made.

    Try other networks not just google. I've had a $1000 day running polls through AOL sponsered listings.

    Take Care

    Thanks for the insight, i've set up a new adowrds account, then i went to make a cup of tea and came back to a £75 adwords voucher at the front door - spooky huh? :)

    So yeah i have a free £75 to play with. I have a question though...

    I'm thinking of either:

    a) Run polls using Poll Factory - but the domain is only 1 day old, will this cause a low quality score?

    b) Run a (free?) get rich quick/make money type offer on one of my pr2 2 year old domains?

    With polls, i realise iPad's are popular this week, i was thinking of a simple "Is the iPad worth all the hype?" type poll, should i make the landing page poll have high keywod density for "iPad" and then target "iPad" on the content network? Or should i just target all the keywords it suggests?

    I have used adwords in the past (year ago - when i knew nothing...) and they quickly slapped me silly. Im a little worried about starting off a campaign incase they do the same so i want to get everything in order before i begin.

    If people can help me, i'd really appreciate it, and you'd get a good reputation! :)

    Try it on twitter ;)

    It works MUCH better when you don't have to pay for the traffic

    The poll method still works, for sure...The only trick is finding cheap/free traffic...never underestimate free traffic!

    is pulse360 easy to get in like cp@ l3ad or do they require a phone call? Another thing i never really understood about polls is how do you get the traffic? did you write an article about jonas bros and tim tebow? do you have a blog about timmy and the jonas bros? or do you just start a ppc campaign for the too. Sorry for the n00bish questions

    futuremills,

    No pulse360 is easy to get started. It's just like adwords, you just pick keywords and you can even choose from a network of sites that they offer that is highly targeted for example you put a poll about jonas brothers on a gossip site with alot of trafffic. You can choose the sites to put your polls on.

    It's easy money (kind of) after you get the hang of it.

    You asked about getting traffic to your polls. You do that like I explained above by bidding. You need more help you can PM me.

    I don't use google much anymore, I use other ad platforms that is where the money is.

    Take Care

    I would like to know this too, with minimum bids that high, how can you make money on email submits?
    Or the better question may be, how do you lower your bids on pulse360 to make a profit?
