    Does anyone here use Adwords to drive traffic to Email and Zip Submits?


    I find that offers which pay around $1.25 per lead is not enough as the advertising costs to be on the first page results of Google (Adwords) is way higher.

    How do people manage to drive traffic to Email/Zip submit offers and still manage to turn a profit?

    find right keywords and for offers , and i think most people here do framing so basically the real ctr is near 100%

    The problem is the first page of Google Results always costs over $0.50.

    So how can one make money from zip/email offers if they're only paying $1.25 or so.

    If you bid $1 to get on the first page, you'll be flushing more away than you make.

    I'm not sure where you came up with that one. The cost of being on the first page of Google is going to vary dramatically, depending on the keywords you're using. Researching your keywords and testing is the key...

    I used to use Adwords for CPA and I used Poll Technique but didn't work for me because I get no good QS.

    C'mon, I'm talking general.

    For almost all major CPA promotions, the first page of Google costs a lot of money.

    I've just placed 4 campaigns up for cpa offers and each one varies between $0.40 and $5.00 for first page placement.

    gotta get creative. get a good landing page with enough content to get 5 cent clicks, and a creative idea to get them to fill in the offer. Thats what ive been doing forever. Yes you will fail if your promoting a 500 dollar home depot gift card and your ad copy says

    Free Home Depot Gift Card
    Click Here And Get
    A $500 Gift Card!

    That wont cut it anymore

    But how do you bid on the main keyword or the product name keyword and not pay through the nose when everybody else is also promoting that same product.

    Sometimes the bids are over $2 to be on the first page.

    Jacks,

    I'll give you a few hints.
    1) Look up iFrame Slicing + CPA
    2) Don't go where the flock is. Look For Nichies/ Keywords
    3) Use Content Network and Search "Improving Quality Score + Adwords"

    If you want to find ROI in CPA land it's kind of like modifying a car. A stock race car isn't going to win the race against a moded race car. If you want to go fast you need to experiment and put these things together and you'll get a trophy at the end of the race.

    You don't need to bid laser targeted keywords ;).For keyword "google" i've made $149 with $20 advertisement.
    Try content network.
    And i believe that adwords is not good for email zip submit offers.If you believe you can write rocking ads,use findology,miva,7search .. You don't have to stick google,if you offer something good,they will more than happy to enter their email address.

    It's not about product or service,it's about how do you tell it .

    i believe it is good for email submits as ive made a killing off them, those 2nd tier are pretty terrible traffic. Again you just have to come up with new ideas.

    What happens if my lead quality is very low at merchants side,can they ban me for this or just request me to leave offer ? Do they scrub my leads or still they pay the previously generated leads
