    Why, hello there:)

    Im a noob. I have made $97 on the internet, $56 of which I recieved as a check. The rest I haven't been payed for.

    I have decided after reading this thread about Revtwt advertising, to give it a shot.

    Revtwt advertising is simply a water downed noob friendly version of PPC such as adwords, yahoo etc.

    I have invested $50 into revtwt and hope to atleast make $100 back, if not $150+ At worst, hopefully I will break even, if not I will have to slap on some lipstick and go down to the 7/11 and give $10 blow jobs to horny old men.

    My one and only motivation is this cow :cow_yello This cow is insane, and motherfucking radical.

    So, without further a due, I present my bound to fail CPC journal.

    Ps. I borrowed the $50 from my mom, seriously


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Money Invested: $50

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Update 1: Submitted 2 Campaigns Paying $1 and $0.85 simple email submits. Pretty much can only run 2 campaigns with a $50 budget as the lowest daily budget Revtwt allows is $20 day (GTFO) They're pending approval and hopefully tomorrow I wake up and my house is on fire:cow_yello

    Oh dear, I go on revtwt today and see a balance of 49.56 which means I got a total of 4 valid clicks...

    I check my CPA stats and 0 converts :( Im -44 cents wtF? Why cant I just have everything on a silver platter? Well, Im just going to give this more time, hope for the best.

    Thats decent, over 100% ROI. The reason you probably didn't get any more after that is because your daily budget was higher than your money in your account.


    Edit: On a side note, approx $3 will be spent on each campaign before being evaluated and switched. I cant say for sure, but I think that one of my biggest enemies here is going to be shaving. So, theres a chance I'll be switching networks/offers throughout this log until I am making 100,000,000 daily via revtwt and higher my own mercenary army to overthrow the American Government.

    Hi Gupnup - if you are new to affiliate marketing, want to start out small & make a few bux, I don't know if Revtwt & PPC is the way to go...
    ... If I was just starting out and only had $50, I would buy a domain, redirected the domain to my affiliate link (a stable affiliate program w/5% plus conversion) - buy 3-4 good articles (or write them myself) based around semi-long tail terms - or with a in search page competition of under 100K - submitted each individual article to goarticle, ezine, articlebase & buzzle (1 article per site) - then promoted those articles through link building, social bookmarking, relevant blog comments, forums, twitter & buy relevant stumbleupon clicks (5 cents per click!).
    Breakdown:
    Domain: $5-8.00
    3-4 Articles: $15-20.00

    Over the long term this is a better investment!
    Have you got any tech experience? - You could also start a site (wordpress), start getting subscribers by using feedburner (free). 1and1 has 6 months hosting free with domain name.
    You could make $50 go along way!!!
    Just my 2 cents

    Thanks for the advice, but this is a learning experience as much as it is an attempt to profit. I realize that I could've of invested my money elsewhere and gotten better returns, hell PVAs and proxies woulda been gold for ewhoring.

    UpDate3:

    Today one of my adds recieved 2 more clicks totaling a cost of 66 cents. But, my other add made just for the UK failed to recieve any clicks for the past 2 days.

    I find it hard to believe that atleast 1 out of those 6 people did not enter there email. My add is a simple 1 page email submit. Im going to be switching both offers.

    My new offers:

    2 Page Zip submit - $1

    2 Page Email Submit - $1.75

    All USA, as I have learned that other countries dont work.

    Wish me luck:cow_yello:cow_yello:cow_yello:cow_yello:cow_yello:cow_yello:cow_yello

    Update4:

    In just over 24 hours, my 2 adds, listed above recieved over 5 dollars in clicks. And of course a grandtotal of 0 conversions. So, over 50 clicks, yet no one has submitted their email and info... Oh well. I guess Ill try a different offer =/

    EDIT: Chose 3 good submits from Adscend (changed networks) , hopefully these will be a bit better???

    Well, the simple 1 page email submits from adscend also flopped...

    12 clicks overnight no converts. If definately doing someone wrong, I just need to figure it out... or perhaps revtwt is simply dead...

    Just over $42 left in the account

    Hey partner, i'm following your progress here. I've started using this method lately as well. Maybe we can talk via PM or IM and mesh ideas. I'm almost wondering how much of this is in the ad wording.

    hey man if your paying 66 cents for 2 clicks on a ppc network that isnt adwords ysm or adcenter and going to an email submit please stop right now you're wasting your time. If you can get 5 cents at high volume you could get it going, much more your looking at needing a huge conversion rate to break even man. Get creative and figure out how to monetize high volume kw's with email submits at a low cpc :)

    Hey, I worded that very bad. By recieving 2 clicks and totaling 66 cents, I meant that 4 clicks from before and 2 clicks that day for total 66 cents, and 11 cents a click. The lowest revtwt allows is 10 cents a click, which I use now.

    Anyways, for anyone wondering, I have recieved 80 clicks total, costing me just over 8 dollars, and I have recieved 0 conversions. I seriously thought I would recieve atleast 1 conversion, on a simple 1 page email submit.

    I think email submits might be a bit saturated on revtwt. I need to think of something else, I need to be unique and original. Currently Im thinking of different offers, or perhaps twists to add onto my email submits, so therefore I have paused all my offers.

    Once I started a new campaign on there (should be a few days tops) Ill post it up. (Im thinking pay per download, I got some nice paying 2-3 dollar ones)
