After years of working in Internet Marketing, we lagged in the party of joining PPC. Its not like we never did PPC, however most of our efforts were focused on blackhat side of PPC.
So this week, decided to change the equation for once and all.
Got our good friend kickass Affiliate Manager Brandon at XY7 (BTW in language of Barry, Brandon is biggest yes sir of Affiliate Marketing. He is always there for us?) He supplied us an excellent converting PPC campaign.
This was our first week, so we decided to play conservatively. We set aside $1500 for first week experiment. In coming days I will explain in detail about the processes we followed.
Created campaigns at adwords. The results at adwords were the best. However we realize that we are too late for adwords party.
Created campaigns at Facebook. I am in love with facebook ads.
Myspace was very painful. No doubt they are bleeding. They don’t accept foreign advertisers. And No means No. We got excellent support from XY7, then even talked to MS to get us approved, however mySpace policy is not to collect money on the table. Also they do not accept any gift visa cards, any virtual card. Nothing. In order for you to spend money on myspace you have to have a proper American Credit Card. What a great policy. Anyway we have created an account with MySpace using Barry’s personal credit card, but indeed the policy at MySpace sucks. However it can be a blessing in disguise. Since MySpace is such a dumbass in accepting advertisers, there is little competition compared to other platforms.
So that’s all had been my first week effort.
In initial few days lost some money. Overall at the end of the week, spent close to $1400 and made $1250. Overall a loss of $150, that is not bad considering we had learning curve.
In coming week, experiment will be on with new campaigns and trying out second tier places as well.
Then in March, will setup a target of spending $20 K in PPC.
All is well.
