    Hey guys,

    I'm really interested in giving media buying a try but don't know where to start. Can you guys help point me in the right direction? My experience is mainly adsense seo websites. Should i join Wasted's $500/month program? Are they newbie friendly with tutorial's to help me get started? Or should I research more and learn the basics first? I've also seen some people recommend Media Buy Academy. Has anyone done their course and think it's a good place to start? Any help, advice and tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

    Before you media buy you need to know what niche your going to go in and the traffic sources.
    Find your niche (from affnetworks)
    Find your traffic source
    Once you have that and you know what you want to run
    Find your creatives and find your landers (whatrunswhere) or just browse and find.
    Then your going to need a tracker, prosper, imobitrax, cpvlab, voluum etc
    Once you have all that THEN we can start talking about it.

    honestly start with search and ppc. Its a cheaper option to learn your kpi's.
    i would learn your buys in the following order:
    search
    social
    mobile
    display

    you'll get creamed if you jump into display without a decent understanding/budget.

    If Wasted's program is too expensive you shouldn't even been doing media buying. You will waste more than that even trying to find something that works.

    I don't know about any courses, but check out sitescout.com. It's a very easy to use RTB platform with lots of different websites that you can bid on. Look at the websites and get some creative juices flowing.
