    Hello there folks!

    I had posted a thread earlier about my "first" PPV profit. It felt awesome as I dunno why but I always felt that PPV is junk traffic that can't convert shit. Changed my mind! I also had another media buying journey that didn't go so well at first, but I transformed the display traffic to PPV but thought I'd open a new thread since it's no longer media buys.

    Achievements so far:

    - Started testing PPV with direct linking offers above $5, short form submits.
    - Currently with LeadImpact.
    - Total spent (till this very moment) $162, total made $145 (over 4 days). $17 loss till now.

    To be done:

    - Optimization (LOTS OF IT: removing non-converting targets, adding more targets when traffic drops, split test more offers)
    - If the above does not achieve stable profitability, I'll look into landing pages.
    - Ultimate goal is to reach and maintain $100 profit daily for two consecutive weeks by optimizing current campaign like crazy till it reaches "stable" profitability then launch more campaigns.
    - It's important to note that I've wasted about $40 at LeadImpact at on a different campaign so technically, I'm now at a profit not a loss since the above figure includes that $40. There's still so much to do but I'm very happy for one thing: I'm getting conversions. Which means it's a tracking and optimization game now.

    Why PPV?

    - Action-packed (yes, I really like "fast-paced traffic")
    - Hence fast results (relatively, and it could also mean fast pocket emptying :D )
    - Different Risk Type: There are no slaps, account bans and all since this is whitehat, the risk however is condensed with the money. You stand to lose a hell lot of money very very easily.
    - Scalable: PPV is quite scalable because the traffic is there, you just need to match it up with something that converts and you're golden.

    I'll be posting my stats and what I do (will try to keep it on a daily basis). Last time with media buys I wasn't enjoying myself that much and was often very confused. I'm a lot more focused now and have a much clearer action plan for PPV.

    Appreciate everyone's support, ask questions if you want I'll try to answer to the best of my knowledge :)

    And you quit after just $40? Hahaha most people who were into PPV lost a hell lot more as starters. But I agree with you, it does hurt to lose money :D That's why I also promote relatively high ticket offers above $5 to compensate for the low conversion rate.

    Thank you, and how are YOU doing? Hit me up on skype if you like :)

    @HaiiroNeko

    Yeah PPV is a very rare find around here. I guess it's because the risk, the complexity and most of all because with most decent networks you need like $500 to get started.

    Fuckin awesome. I will definitely be following you on this journey. I think this is the first on BHW for PPV. Since everyone is quiet about it.

    so you signed up, threw in the 1k, and your already getting conversions? Also, what PPV spy tool do you recommend?
