CS1.4 – PPC Case Study Part 4 – Advice, Tips and Campaign Structure

First off ladies and gents, don’t take me wrong by my blunt and slightly brutal tone on some of the topics. My only intentions are to motivate you and to have an impact on your success. To be completely honest, I haven’t been receiving as many questions as I expected that I’d get. Most places charge a lot of money for what I am showing you how to do. Just surprised more of you aren’t taking advantage of it.

By the way, I wasn’t directly speaking to anyone in particular when I mentioned talked about people just asking ‘newb questions’. I was saying in general, there is so much information on the internet that is free, you shouldn’t have to spend much money on learning materials and the basic questions have answered provided all over. Trust me, there isn’t a completely 100% fail proof guide that holds your hand through each step of the process until you’ve built a profitable business. If there were, you wouldn’t learn anything at all because someone else did it for you. So take my advice and make a change in your life and your family’s.

Next video will be posted next Monday afternoon/evening.

Have a great weekend!

Hi people,

I am new to this forum and hope that anybody can
help me with the forex – I am looking for an introduction
for noobs. I have already some knowledge about shares. (Hope this is the right category.)

Help is so much appreciated. Most important question: can a noob make money on the forex?

@jimbomel – You need to post these sort of questions in the members forum.

Another killer video! Thx for this, it definitely answered most of the my questions. I didn’t know Excel could be used this way

I just came across your blog about and wanted to drop you a note telling you how impressed I was with the information you have posted here. I have a site Understanding PPC so I know what I’m talking about when I say your site is top-notch! Keep up the great work, you are providing a great resource on the Internet here!

Maybe the problem is that I expected it to be easy and learned too late that is extremely challenging. The difficulty of life combined with the disapointment brought by major experience (love, work, friendship) keeps me up or makes me bury my head under the pillow.

Perfect timing. I am currently planning on working from home as from next year and just focus on my blog full-time. So this article has just motivated me. Thank you,

Excellent video. Bookmark it!

jimbomel: This blog and forum mainly focuses on PPC and affiliate marketing. If you want to learn forex then head over to Google and find a forum – this way you’ll learn much through discussion.

And PPC is also very lucrative if you get it right!

Its amazing what people will post in these forums, some of it is quite brilliant!

Many industry veterans have emphasized that keeping a clean and flawless account structure helps new accounts gain momentum with low account history and besides its easier for you to mnage the account.

WIN WIN if you ask me

I knew advertising through PPC wasn’t going to be easy. Especially for people who never done it before like me. I recently joined some networks and plan on using PPC to advertise thanks for all the tips from the videos.
I found out CPA to PPC from The Arbitrage Conspiracy report.
Basically its about a guy named Aymen who makes 50k-100k per day with CPA. He promotoes multiple offers from various networks.
Unfortunetly I didn’t have the 2k for the course so im learning from other people who make money doing this.
Noone comes close to the number Aymen is making but I found out about people who are making decent mone from CPA like Shoemoney, Mack Michaels from his course Maverick Money Makers. I plan on joining that program $97 a month from Mack who makes 2.6M a year from Millnic Media.
I know it doesn’t matter how much other people are making its about what I am making but I am new and I want to learn from high caliber people, I hate having to reinvent the wheel which is why I’m here. The A/C sounds kinda overhyped if what you are saying is right. On the calls during pre-launch Aymen said you don’t need a website, a list, and you can test with $20 although he recomemded starting out on other PPC companies before Google. I don’t mind having to learn new things in order to be successful sure beats internet marketing like the “gurus” lol learning sales copy and selling products whether ts your own or someone elses.
Thanks Andrew for the video tutorials.

i wonder how you create so cool videos.may be i should start this with my seo blog too.thanks .

March 16, 2009

I think the essence of a video is to be able to tell a story/tutorial visually. This is what this post – video did in a very simple way. I appreciate your time and efforts on this.

this excel technique is clearly explained in Amit Mehta ppc classroom module of campaign setup.

When you say no more than 1200 kws, are you counting broad match and exact match as 1 or as 2?

July 2, 2009

Hey Andrew, this was an awesome in-depth video. It is true how lazy we can be when it comes to “work for ourselves”. It’s really easier to watch movies like these and read juicy stories about others success.

I am going to open up a campaign and throw in about $500 just to test my luck on Adwords and definitely follow your advices. If it’ll be successful … well I thank you in advance now. :)

July 17, 2009

Perhaps not a lot of people posted questions, but the information presented here is still appreciated a year and a half later.

Thanks Andrew.

Hi Andrew, thanks SO MUCH for the fantastic video!

PPC has been a mixed success for me… Sometimes I’m able to sustain it for a week or so, but other times my campaign gets too expensive after a just 2 or 3 days.

I’m 35 years old this year, but I still think I have to keep my day job. Jason Arias above might find success with Mack Michaels system though- I did a search and saw this 19 year old teen who is apparently making money following his Maverick Money program. Seems expensive, but if it works for him, it might for me too!

You’re video was really helpful and I got a few good tips. It would be really nice if you would do some current ppc posts and videos, cause I know ppc advertising has changed since then.
