    I've been using Bing Ads for a while now (Like 2 weeks), and finally got the hang of it.
    Stats so far -
    Trial offers, weightloss niche - 500 clicks (To the offer page) - NO CONVERSION
    Pay per lead SOI - 1200 clicks (To the offer page) - 8 conversion...................
    Pay per sale - 700 Clicks - No conversion

    These are the stat for today....... Wasted about 1000 on bing ads already so far.

    Anyone care to help a brother out by tell me how to find offers that actually CONVERT!?

    I am using Clickbooth, and this is upsetting. (By the way, I do not want to promote clickbank - Its just personal)

    Thanks.

    Are you using a Landing Page?

    Are your keywords highely targetted?

    Are you focusing on 'women over 35' related keywords?

    Are you using a tracker like Prosper or CPV Labs?

    PPC is a brutal gig however you can make it work if you answered YES to each of the above questions.

    Join a private network, talk to your AM, ask him which offers are converting best with bing traffic, ask him for tips for optimization.

    Good advice. I am with Clickbooth now, and here's how the conversation went 2 - 3 days ago.

    Me (to AM) - hey buddy, I want to know what's the average conversion weight for the Garcingia offer I am having? (One of the products I am promoting)
    AM - The highest for search has a conversion rate of 7 percent
    Me - What! I am like at 0 percent, can you give me some tips on how to get a higher conversion rate?
    AM - I see that you are bringing in traffic, why don't you wait for a couple of weeks to see if there's a conversion?
    Me- The reason is I AM PAYing for the traffic....... 500 clicks a day is not cheap buddy. Can you tell me about how he gets a 7% conversion rate? Like what kind of landing page is he using?
    AM - I cannot disclose.
    Me- Is there any tips that you can give me regarding increasing conversion rate?
    AM - (Not replying until he sent me more different new offers yesterday)

    I mean, I don't mind losing money while I am testing different ads, landing page, and offers, right? But 0 conversion on trial offers is very upsetting. Total 2000 clicks today, no bot traffic.

    I tried running a few days with 100 spending. No conversion. I up my spending so I could get more data. The problem is, I still don't see any winners, and I am testing 3 landers and 5 ads on each niche.

    condadon - is there any course you recommend on PPC? Bing ads and Google?

    I've been lurking around for a long time, and all of the information I found is about getting Clicks (I don't think I have a problem with clicks).

    Again, I am willing to pay for legit courses and tutorials, I just want to have a positive ROI within this month. even 2 - 5 percent ROI is good for me.

    Buddy stop doing that. You are loosing money + leaving money in the table.

    Here is what you should do:

    1. Write a short report 7-10 pages about the product you want to promote.
    2.Make a squeeze page (not landing page) where you will ask for their name + email in order to give them that free super duper unseen report.
    3.On your autoresponder you setup your links so when they enter their email and confirm it,the get it instantly.
    4.On your autoresponder load follow up series of email,1 per day,7 days per week. Send them usefuls resources,informations,tips etc and every 3 days 1 promo email but make it look more like personal email than promo.
    5. BUMM,you paid once to get the costumer but now you have a lifetime (until the unsubscribe of curse ) costumer which you can sell them everyday if you know how to do it

    See the difference???

    Now learn some more tricks about email marketing + bing ads and you can make some good money

    "They say the average value per 1 subscriber is 1$ per month"

    If you need more help,pm me and i will do my best to help.

    oooh...Garcinia!

    I know an affiliate manager that has Garcinia offers. he said they simply DONT convert anymore! He also said people are wasting money on Bing and Garcinia (other weight loss scam pills) and their conversions are bad bad bad! Most of affiliates simply lose money!

    So yeah..that might be your problem!

    Mann!! I don't know what your affiliate manager is smoking, Garcinia Still works, both on Bing and On Google, if you do it right, yo can do up to 20% conversion. If yo going after "weight loss" keywords you need a funnel

    That's not how it works bro.
    If you spend few times of offer payout and no conversion you're doing something wrong.
    PM me your landing page

    See this is why I like adsense so much. That $1k you spent when to bing or google and as a publisher if those clicks are on your site you are getting 68% of that. It is a lot easier to get someone to click on an ad and "window shop" than to actually buy something.

    Not sure if bing is the right site to promote garcinia? bing traffic is older people, are they really looking for weight loss products?

    On the other side, if you got 500-700 clicks and then no conversions, then maybe your landing page simply sucks??
