    For some of you the above might be a big fat joke. For others it might be impressive :) My goal is to better understand PPC traffic, list building and get better and more consistent earnings. For those of you who can't make any money - here's my method.

    1) Buy ad space - I purchase ads on Bing, Plenty of Fish, Facebook (which was AWESOME but then I got banned ;-) ).
    2) Drive ad space to an optin page. I use Leadpages and capture people onto my mailing list.
    3) Send to offer once they've opted in - you might get a conversion right there. Always send them to the offer on 'Thank You'.

    User Clicks Ad --> Optin Page Says "Discover Which of These 3 "Health" Foods Are Making You Fat" --> User Opts In --> User Gets Offer --> User Gets Content Emails 2x a week --> User Gets Ads 1-2 to times a week

    I'm also monetizing on some private affiliate networks. See below:

    Here's what's gotten me my success so far to date. I think it comes to 3 things:

    Automating my Email and Content

    I don't do an automated auto-responder. Instead I went into Aweber and scheduled emails out based on the calendar for the next 6 months. I found high quality PLR on health/wellness.

    I just sat down and KEPT updating this until I knew I had my email for the coming weeks/months automated. I hated it. Hate the interface, hate writing in emails. I nearly went crazy one weekend just doing this but you know what, hard work pays off.

    So now I have a bunch of helpful content emails and ebooks that my list will get on auto-pilot. It's fully automated. 100% hands off.

    When I feel like it, I send an email to my list with an advertisement or review of a product.

    - Always email your list on a regular basis.
    - Keep them engaged.
    - Don't bother doing list building unless you REALLY want to build a relationship and promote quality products.

    In my experience, people can make money direct linking and writing articles - which isn't as personal as email. So you might not want to do email marketing unless you can go all in.

    Product Selection

    You need to know your niche. I'm in health so I promote ebooks, recipe books, work out stuff, amazon, supplements. For ClickBank - I look for a video sales letter and review the quality of the sales copy. (Google Blair Warren 1 Minute Persuasion on what to look for in sales copy). I make sure the sales page has NO leaks. Meaning that the user can't optin. If the user opts in - in my own experience, the vendor will overwrite your cookie or start promoting other stuff to them.

    So basically:

    - No email option
    - Content rich or killer VSL
    - look for low priced offers - these are converting well
    - look for high gravity (in my experience - the higher the better)

    PPC Traffic

    This is hard to cover - and an area I'm struggling in. My earnings were amazing when I had my Facebook account, and while I don't think I promote anything controversial - I mistakingly linked to some stuff with exit pops and was banned :-(.

    But on Bing & POF I'm spending about .20 per click. My lead pages optin is converting at about 25%.

    On Bing, I segment a lot - I target high traffic, low value keywords. These are not "money" keywords, or "hot" keywords - just keywords that are high traffic - I figure once I get a visitor to optin, they will eventually buy something.

    Well, that's that.

    I think for me it's all come down to scaling up . I've got a good system in place and if I can add more leads onto my list, it should take care of itself.

    All the best - I'm open to advice and suggestions and happy to answer any questions. It's been a real struggle with Bing & POF - I might take some of my earnings and put it into PPV. I really miss that Facebook Ads account ;-)

    Well done on your success.

    I think your main winning point is that you are focusing on getting opt-ins, rather than immediate sales. Almost everybody knows how powerful opt-ins and list building is, yet most people seem to be too lazy to set this up and just focus on getting immediate, direct sales. Yet the latter requires the visitors to be in a hot buying mode, while the former (the way you are doing) warms the prospects up. Hence you manage to convert users who are on the fence, and not just those in buying modes.

    Just one thing I would recommend you do differently. For relative beginner in IM (I'm not saying that you are; indeed you seem to have a very good grasp of the process), I would recommend going after gravities 5-25, rather than high (50+) ones. Low gravity products (especially in the health niche) have amazing conversion rates and much lower competition. Indeed for these types of products you can get CPCs of 0.05-0.10. Volume-wise, you will be making less sales as there will be less searches, but your net profit is often higher than high competition products. I did some maths on the post below to illustrate this:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...cts-newbies-5-minute-guide-5.html#post7393824

    As I said, well done though, you have a good system set up and you sound like a hardworking guy/gal. I'm looking forward to reading more about your rise to super-affiliate status :)

    First post and first earnings print screen.

    I'm a newbie, will you share with me your method and money if I PM you?

    I call this bullshit. I hope that I'm wrong. Will see in the near future if OP is genuine or not.

    ManCar - thanks man. I hope to walk away from my day job. My earnings are not consistent. Like your offer on CB - I'm working on putting up an offer too very shortly.

    I'm a dude BY THE WAY :)

    About lower grav offers - I don't target any of the brand names in Bing (I know a lot of affiliiates do this - like they'll bid on 'venus factor'). I target mid-volume kw's around cooking, working out etc..

    MindMaster - yup. Too many scammy posts like this. I have no WSO and frankly, given my struggle with focusing doing another project is a big waste of time and will ruin what I'm working on. I'm also nowhere near guru status to pull that off.

    Congratulations. What did you do from Friday to Saturday to see such a major increase. I was also wondering how much of your earnings are profit?

    Very nice OP. May I ask do you provide an ebook when they opt in or you just say "Discover Which of These 3 "Health" Foods Are Making You Fat" and then they opt in expecting to get the answer? Currently my opt in rate is around 19% but I create my own landing pages. Also how big is your list to be making around that much. I have made $80 in the past 4 days and they have only been from redirecting to product in thank you page. Thanks

    Why are you asking to be spoonfed? He has already told you the traffic source and offer he's promoting. He even told you the amount he earned. Knowing this should be enough for your to start your own campaign.

    Don't be lazy. Do some your own research and take action.

    I've been experimenting with day parting. So I let the campaign run all day Saturday with a higher CPM.

    So I'm trying to see what days and times to pause the campaign. Right now it looks like I shouldn't bother running during the day M-F. Which makes sense, people are working and unable to watch a 30min VSL on the job. Or they won't feel comfortable buying from a work computer.

    I make about 50% profit (30-40% of revenue spent on traffic and cost of hosting, lead pages, prosper 202 etc.).

    But that 50% doesn't include anything else I can make on the list.

    For those of you who are curious about day parting - my own experience is that video sales letters do well at night and on weekends.

    If you are targeting stay at home moms - it is the opposite - they tend to well during the day when mom's at home with free time on her hands.

    So adjust your campaign time as you see fit.

    I don't offer them anything ;-) I tell them they'll get to a see video. And I still get > 20% optin.

    Pretty funny huh? In this niche, my list is at 2,000 and growing.

    It's called an optin page. You need to pay for an auto-responder service like Aweber or GetResponse and they can host the list for you.

    The optin page can be done in Wordpress with some plugins (some are free, some cost a lot).

    I would spend some time getting comfortable with setting up a blog (learn Wordpress), writing some content and the basics of how stuff works.

    PPC & Email are more intermediate activities for an affiliate. If you're not sure how this works, you need to focus on the basics (Wordpress, Plugins, Articles, Landing Pages, Affiliate Links etc..).
