    Hey

    I'm new to PPC campaigns. I have never run adwords ads before but now i have hired a guy who will run ads for me via coupons.

    I want to run ads for CPA offers (like free health trials paying over $40 from societyinvite and EWA).

    But my question is do i need to make my own landing page for the offer necessarily.

    or is there some other way also (if blackhat then also can try) to directly link to offer url (which i guess google will never allow).

    And if i make the landing page on my own domain then can i just copy the whole landing page of Offer and link to it via a click button?

    Will google accept that?

    I don't fully understand what you are asking. You can create an AdWords campaign for any site, yours or someone elses (not sure why you would want to send traffic to someone elses site though). The display URL domain and actual URL domain have to be the same. You also have to fulfil what you offering in the ad within 2 clicks. I would suggest creating a specific landing page as this will improve your quality score.

    In terms of funding it with coupons, i think you will struggle. You can only use 1 coupon per account and within 14 days of account creation. It would be a lot of work changing accounts all the time. You could in theory copy and paste accounts using the editor but a lot of effort and i would think you would get shut down eventually. Plus tracking would be impossible too. With a PPC campaign you analyse data and improve it; trying different ads, keywords, building a comprehensive negative keyword list etc. This would be very difficult without tracking and tracking would be hard if you change the account every £50!

    thanks for replying. I think you didn't get me.

    I want to get targeted traffic via google adwords to CPA offers so i wanted to ask about the landing page i will need to make for that purpose or can i do cloaking or some other things (just heard dont know exactly if that works).

    Regarding campaign tracking and all that i dont care tbh. the guy i have hired will run ads charging me 30% of campaign cost. so for a 100$ (should get about 200 visitors atleast if i set cpc 0.5) campaign if i manage to get 3 leads (for FREE health trial offers paying 40$) thats about $30 + $5 for domain = $35 cost and $120 revenue.

    Not sure if that will work but i wanted to give it a try.

    so can i just copy the whole actual landing page of offer to create a copy of same for my site to get approved for campaign? will Google will check for the copy of it and dont approve then?

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Why are you paying 30$ for 100$ when you can get one activated account from fiverr for $5 and 10x100$ coupons for $5 ??

    That won't work. Your ad probably won't be approved.

    Your concept will spend your money but it probably won't be worthwhile as you will get a lot of wasted clicks. I have a Google certified company, have done all 4 exams and have my own Google account manager i can call upon when i need to. Even when i get a client in an industry i have run PPC campaigns in before and can copy and paste the campaigns with negative keyword lists with AdWords Editor, there are still initial teething problems as every client is different. After a month or two it's running pretty efficiently with very comprehensive negative keyword lists. Getting it right straight away is impossible. That's not how AdWords works.

    For $30 you will get a campaign that works but it will be very inefficient and will have a lot of wasted clicks. Typically, most campaigns i take over have around 70% wasted clicks. Personally i don't think it's worth it as although you will get a few clicks, i very much doubt you will get any conversions.

    You don't need to game AdWords. Do the exams and do it properly and you will make money out of it. Try and take short cuts and you will get your fingers burnt

    He's right, Adwords will never ever let you run CPA offers, let alone rebill trial offers(they'll send your info to the FTC). What you wanna do is build a list of hungry buyers and mailed them your offers. But if you're targeting the health niche I would pick a product and build my lead generation site around it. People in the health and weight loss niche (fat people) are well aware of all the scammy rebill offers and they can smell scammy rebill offers a mile away.

    You should look at your competitors and watch what they are doing, so you can get a good insight on what's working and what's not.

    Yeah, I don't see this working boss. Like rugbyjack2005, I also own a ppc company and I wouldnt touch this with a ten foot pole. You could try it yourself though?
