When Buying Website Traffic Will Break The Bank

…and what you MUST know or you’ll be dead in the water!

break the bank

If you’re new to building a business online, or have recently bought a $97 clickbank course on media buying and decided to throw a few gold coins into the advertising kitty, this article might just save you a small fortune and a lot of time (and misery).

Take note…

buying traffic from advertising networks is a complicated business. Turning a profit with that same traffic is proving to be close to impossible for the average online business owner.

I know…you’re NOT the average business owner!

Let’s break this down into small, easy-to-digest pieces to take the mystery out of media buying and make your life a little easier…and (hopefully) a lot more profitable.

About Ad Networks

Ad Networks are set up in such a way that they are able to offer advertising to clients either exclusively (offering a sales mechanism to a single, stand-alone client operating in one particular niche) or to a group of advertisers who are doing business in the same sector online.

The networks sell what’s referred to as inventory – advertising space on a website or group of websites across their network of partner sites. Google is the largest and best known advertising network using the AdSense platform for publishers who want to earn money from visitors who click the ads on their website.

Ad networks sell traffic, for the most part, in two ways – CPM (per page impressions/per 1,000) and CPC (cost per click).

This means that you (the advertiser) are paying either every time the page loads (CPM) or whenever your ad creative (banner or text) is clicked on. This may look like a straight forward choice to start with but it isn’t. A hungry business owner could find themselves easily confused and quickly swallowed up if they make the wrong choice and select the wrong type of traffic on the wrong ad network. CPC may seem to be the right approach (you know what the cost of the click will be, right?) but this isn’t always the case. A good ad creative, placed in the right position on the right website can provide a much better return on investment.

Here’s how it works…

Larger advertising networks use an auction based bidding system like Google’s, where the highest bidder is rewarded with the impression immediately after a website visitor clicks a link on a partner website. This happens in a tiny fraction of a second and provides the advertiser with the exact traffic they want at a price they’re willing to pay the ad network. The ad network pay a portion of the advertising fee (the cost of the click or the impression) to the website owner and everyone is happy. In theory at least. 😉

As an advertiser, you are bidding or agreeing to pay the network a fee based on the value that visitor will deliver.

What does this mean for you and your business?

When you bid or agree to pay a certain amount for traffic (CPC or CPM) you MUST know the visitor value of your website or you’ll be dead in the water.


Here are four questions you need to ask before buying traffic:

  1. How much money can you afford to spend to get a visitor to your website?
  2. How many leads will your website produce for every 100 visitors?
  3. How many people will you need to get on your subscriber list to make a sale?
  4. How many sales will you make on average from each of your customers?

Buying website traffic will break the bank…

if you don’t know the answer to these questions.

Hundreds of Clicks By LOWERING your CTR!

Our formula for getting HUNDREDS of targeted clicks and much traffic every day for our clients…

Dear Friend…haha,

Don’t ya love sales letters that start this way. Like I totally believe you buddy, we’re friends. Okiedokes.

Whatever. Anyway, I just stepped away from the hard-work of bossing the YaghiLabs team around as we build traffic campaigns for 8 different client-projects still in progress. And I wanted to share with you a little ad writing tip nobody ever taught me.

Why does no one else teach this?

Because the clueless Gooroos are too busy teaching how to write ads that get a HIGH click-thru-rate.

Which is stupid on Pay-Per-Click platforms.

An ad that gets a high click-thru-rate is an ad that COSTS a lot of money.

And hey any idiot can write an ad that gets clicked a lot. Here check this out, I’m an idiot

Gooroo look at the ads I wrote:

Free Sex For You
Get Free Sex Here. All positions For $0. Click to start sexing now!

Or how about,

Free Money
Just write your Paypal address, and we’ll send you  $1Mil of free money now.

Yeah, I bet the click-thru rate on those goes through the roof. But chances are the ads will just cost a fortune and make no money, especially if what I offer is free.

Ok so it’s not that straight-forward.

Because Mr. Gooroo tells you to super-target your audience by the keywords they search for. Then split-test one ad against another until you find the copy that gets the highest number of clicks per 100 views.

But the whole concept is backwards in their silly little minds!

The idea being you should LIMIT the pool of people who see your ads and then try to get as many of those people to click as possible. That’s a recipe for LITTLE traffic.

Especially that ad VIEWS (which you’re limiting by “targeting”)  cost nothing on PPC, whereas CLICKS COST! And you still gamble the clicker decides not to follow through.

Why not do this:

Show your ads to ALL the people in your target audience–after all, impressions are free on Pay-Per-Click.

And then write an ad that REPELS clicks from everyone but the people likely to BUY.

Something like:

Hard Work Here
We’ll show you how to work hard and make MILLIONS in the process. $20k to sign up!

I’m sure a bunch of curious people will click the ad. But most people who aren’t willing to work hard or spend 20k will be turned off by the ad.

But since the pool of people seeing your ad is in the range of 1.5Mil per day, you’ll get hundreds of genuine and responsive people to click.

That’s our formula for getting HUNDREDS of targeted clicks and much traffic every day for our clients. Makes way more sense.

The secret is to target 100’s of thousands of keywords…and to write ads that repel clicks.
You don’t even have to LEARN to do this part. We do it  FOR YOU much better than you can by following Mr. Clueless Gooroo.

How Effective Is PPC?

Pay per click advertising is one of the quickest ways to generate targeted traffic and sales.

Pay per click (PPC) has become one of the primary ways for online entrepreneurs to advertise their chosen product or service on the Internet. It uses customized ads, in various page positions, which allow customers to make decisions about purchasing. Pay per click advertising is a strategy where you only pay when your ad is clicked on. Managing PPC requires knowledge and analysis of cost per click (CPC) and return on investment (ROI).

Positioning: What, where and how to place your ads is very important.

Where do you want your product to appear? If you want to attract US customers, is it best to promote your product in Japan? Of course not! What geographical location will have the most interest in your offering? I have seen folks who have spent 5 figure ad budgets marketing to the wrong countries. With PPC, you can break it down to the specific cities or regions that will generate the best results for your needs.

Demographics: Who should you market to?

You must consider who is going to use your product. If you have a product that will appeal to a 13-year-old girl, it would be a waste of resources to try to attract males over the age of 35. So who is your ideal customer? Gender and age is key to this process. One of the most overlooked groups is women between the ages 30-68. They make 87% of all purchases in the home. They are also the most loyal and if they trust you, they will become repeat customers.

Conversion Rates

Analytics software is another necessity for successful PPC advertising. In order to determine how effective a PPC campaign is, it is important to install tracking code on your website and use tracking software to analyse it. This will provide you with information such as your cost per click, ad relevance, click through rate and daily budget calculations. Another tool to add to your toolbox is a Web Analytics software program. Having these two will allow you to figure out the results of your Pay Per Click campaign. Without these being used and understood, you will be operating in cyber darkness.

AdCenter Campaigns – Part 2

Informed and solid assumptions can be made prior to running an AdCenter campaign.

In part 1 of our 3-part series, we discussed the Internet’s two top search advertising companies: Google AdWords and Microsoft AdCenter. Now let’s compare the actual costs of both in raw numbers…

Comparing AdWords & AdCenter in Our 2 Campaigns

Google AdWords
PPC Budget: $500 USD
Average Cost Per Click: $7.00 USD
Number of Clicks: 71
Average Ad Position: 3.9
Average Click Through Rate: 0.95%
Number of Conversions: 2 – 2.8% of visitors

Microsoft AdCenter
PPC Budget: $500 USD
Average Cost Per Click: $1.50 USD
Number of Clicks: 333
Average Ad Position: 1.2
Average Click Through Rate: 0.84%
Number of Conversions: 6 – 1.8% of visitors

Although the click through rates (CTR) and conversion rates (CR) were higher with AdWords, AdCenter was able to get 469% more clicks for our budget than AdWords did. This resulted in more conversions for our budget (in our case, we consider a conversion to be when a potential client contacts us either by phone or through the contact form on our website). Even though Google has better performance in a few categories, AdCenter gives you a bigger bang for your buck.

In our $500 AdCenter campaign, we paid roughly $1.50 per click on average resulting in 333 clicks (our average ad position was 1.2). This was a 469% click increase for AdCenter as compared to AdWords for the same budget.

Conversion Rates

So side-by-side, AdCenter provided over 469% increase in traffic to the site. Nice…but look at the conversion rate; 2 for Google and 6 for Microsoft. AdCenter provided a 200% increase in revenue over its competitor. When evaluating the potential profit from a PPC program, you will only be charged for the times that the user clicks your ad. This is the number of users who click the ad divided into the number of users who actually buy the product. A rough rule of thumb for CR is 5%.

You need to project the economics of a campaign prior to launch. If you have a low cost per click, and the commission from your affiliate company is high, you can afford a campaign with a low conversion rate. On the contrary, if the commission per transaction from the affiliate company is low, and the CPC is high, you need a conversion rate that is high.

It is a matter of simple math to project the results of a sales campaign.

profit per click = ($ per sale x conversion rate) (average cost per click)

An easy way to determine whether AdCenter has a real and considerable earning potential for you, is to figure out the conversion rate for your ad campaign and your average cost per click. These can be collected after running a campaign for a couple of months. Once you have this information, you can determine the profits that you will make by applying the following formula:

$ per sale x conversion rate average CPC

Informed and solid assumptions can also be made if one prefers to do the math prior to running a campaign, but they need to be reality-based.

While it may have been true years ago that Google offered the highest ROI for a search marketer, this is no longer the case in many respects. Actually, it’s now possible that ads on Microsoft’s AdCenter network tend to convert better than AdWords ads.

Due to the success of our many AdCenter campaigns, we are now advising our clients to begin utilizing AdCenter for their online search marketing and invite you to do the same.

In Part 3 of our series, we will address the importance of demographics in your AdCenter marketing campaigns…

How to Create a Good Selling Page

3 insanely brilliant steps to writing a killer sales page

Almost every page you create, whether it be a landing page, an article or an actual sales page is designed with one goal in mind…

…To Sell!

Not always a monetary sale but still a sale of sorts.

Remember dot to dot? I loved it as a kid. Each dot had a number (e.g. 1 – 50). Starting at 1, you joined up all the dots in sequence and when you reached 50 you were left with the desired outcome; in this case a picture. A good selling page is similar with the desired outcome being a sale.

You write an ad which sells the click and your landing page sells the optin. All through the sales process you are marketing the idea that YOU have the solution to a problem your audience is facing.

The following 3 steps almost always ensure the user will be bashing their ‘left click’ on top of your ‘add to cart’ button!

Stir Up Emotion

Most people will do waaaay more to avoid pain than to gain pleasure right? What problems do your potential customers face? Remind them over and over of their pain and their obstacles to achieving success. Are they up all night with money worries? Are they never at home to see their kids? Bring those feelings right to the hot-seat. They may even weep a little but who cares…you’re going to be their hero. 😉

Answer Their Questions

As they read through your sales page, questions will pop into their head. It’s important for you to anticipate and answer these as you go. You will then overcome any objections and gain the rock solid trust you must have in order for them to punch in their credit card details.

Tell Them What To Do

Sounds obvious right? But you would be amazed by the amount of marketers who do not have a call to action.

It all starts from the people you attract to your sales page though. When you target people who desire what you have to offer, writing a sales page is like taking candy from a baby. :)

Inside our Internet Business Academy we teach YOU how to create a sales page that puts money in your bank all day long. In fact, we go into sooooo much detail about creating an insanely profitable online business that if you don’t take the course…well, you will miss out on all our top secret secrets! :)

How To Create An Effective Ad With Facebook PPC

What do a naked shopper and a Facebook ad image have in common?

Writing an effective PPC ad requires the following:

  • Speak to the right audience
  • Choose an image which stands out from the crowd
  • Tease them with a solution to their problem

A reader wrote in with the following question:

“Ewan, I have tried to use FB PPC for six months now. All the ads I write either get rejected or, when they are approved, get very low click through unless I’m willing to bid $5 per click. I can’t afford to spend this much, especially since so many people click my ads out of curiosity and don’t sign up to my mailing list. I’ve lost a lot of money on FB advertising and I really can’t afford to lose any more. What pointers can you give me to get my ads approved and to keep my costs down while getting a lot of leads?” Notice the question plays on emotions big time? Now you respond by telling them…

First off, the reason your ads aren’t being approved is because they are violating Facebook’s guidelines. FB doesn’t like ads which over-sell and under-deliver. Also, it’s always good to be extremely clear about what you plan to do with the users details (e.g. email address) after you capture it.

Your click through rate has more to do with the quality of your ad. Poor ad = not too many people clicking it.

Grab Attention, Get Naked 😉

What most don’t know is the image is what attracts the most attention. The way to get eyeballs on your ad is to pick a strange image which is different from those around it.

Imagine walking through your local shopping centre, lots of people everywhere, all looking a little different but pretty similar. You are naked, holding your iPhone in one hand and your shopping basket in the other.

Reckon you’re gonna get some attention? 😉

Check out the competition and see what they’re doing then do the exact opposite. If they use coloured images, use black and white. If they use a photo, use a cartoon. You follow? 😉

There are lots of ways to create advertisements which get attention but the most effective ads elicit an emotional response. In the Internet Business Academy, Module 5 shows you how to not only get attention with images, but also evoke powerful emotions which get people to click and follow through to buy.

Better yet, there’s a really specific way to get click cost down on FB using a weird way of bidding…

We’ll show you how to do that in Module 7.

Why Does Google Dislike Affiliate Websites?

Google doesn’t dislike affiliate marketing. What they dislike are obvious manipulations used to mimic popularity. Google has made its required standards clear. Read closely if you’re an affiliate (or hope to be), and want to be “liked” by Google.

The Standards Required By Google Are Clear

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, because people are still asking, “Why does Google dislike affiliate websites?”

You must have unique and quality content.

You must create user-friendly material that enhances the overall experience for every “Googler.”

This is the most important determination of whether you have success as an affiliate marketer, article marketer, PPC marketer, network marketer – any kind of marketer.

Yet so many affiliate marketers have chosen short term “shady” marketing methods which end up outright failing the whole system.


Google Places A No Solicitation Sign On Their Doors

Any business owner would do the same, but let’s consider it from Google’s perspective.

Google doesn’t want affiliate websites which are not unique. Too many websites are using the same designs, tools and strategies in the exact same places.

Google doesn’t want to become overpopulated with the same duplicated affiliate websites, advertisements and affiliate offers containing the same link.

Therefore, Google has had to develop a way to not only recognize these duplicated affiliate items but also a way to block them from appearing in search results and their ads.

Google doesn’t necessarily dislike affiliate websites, however, people who use Google to search have a tendency to dislike affiliate websites.

What they dislike is how many of these affiliate websites encourage bad practices.

For this reason, Google has no problem with giving any advertiser the “Slap” when it seems they are practicing these tactics.

So it may be unfair to point the finger at Google. They want happy customers. If their customers have a tendency to dislike affiliate websites, then they’re not going to click on your ads, or worse, they’ll complain.

CTR (click through rate) could be considered a determination of whether Google “likes” you or not.

It’s the people who start to recognize the same tactics being used, and choose not to click your ad, who will not visit your affiliate website.

As your CTR and bounce rate starts to drop, Google realizes that your ad and website are not at all relevant to that group of searchers.

If You’re An Affiliate (Or Hope To Be), Here Is A Way For Google To Like You?

In order for a website to appear as a good quality site using good practices, Google is looking for a lot more pages than just an About Us, Contact Us and Privacy Policy page.

The pages to include are as follows:

  • About Us
  • Contact Us
  • Privacy Policy
  • DMCA Policy
  • Anti-Spam Policy
  • Terms of Use
  • Affiliate Agreement

Most affiliate websites do not have these pages and are therefore looked upon as a website that could potentially cause a bad end-user experience.

Also consider the following “brand presence” elements:

  • Links to your Twitter and/or Facebook profile.
  • Your personal or professional mission statement.
  • Free training, or any focused content element.
  • Blog that has fresh, updated content.

The Key Is To Consistently Maintain A Reputable Website

Don’t neglect the fact that the product you choose to promote will have an impact and reflect upon your reputation.

If you associate yourself and your website with trash then Google doesn’t want to be associated with your website.

Also, make sure you know the product you’re promoting. Respect the customer by offering a webpage with valuable content and not a page full of keywords and affiliate links.

Your website must have more of a purpose than to redirect shoppers to another site to purchase. This is called a “thin” affiliate site.

Provide a service or offer informative content to help your visitors make an informed decision on the product they are considering purchasing.

Google doesn’t dislike affiliate marketing. What they dislike are obvious manipulations used to mimic popularity.

How Does PPC Tracking Work?

Without PPC tracking your PPC campaign will not survive. You will not make any money, in fact you will lose a lot of money. There are ways to avoid this happening to you.

Pay Per Click (ppc) tracking is essential to any campaign if it’s to be successful. Most of the ppc platforms themselves have decent tracking facilities but there are also external tools, such as Google Analytics, you can use.

Get this wrong and you will LOSE a ton of money; believe me. 😉

It’s important to track everything. The two most important numbers are CTR (click through rate) and sales.

CTR determines how successful your ad is at pulling customers into your site while sales, quite obviously, show you how well you convert visitors to buyers.

So How Does PPC Tracking Work?

Impressions, CTR and CPC (cost per click) are measured inside the ppc platform.

Conversion tracking can be done within most search marketing services or you can use other available software.

For example, tracking inside Google involves placing a cookie on a user’s computer when they click on an ad. If the user clicks on your Google PPC ad, and reaches one of your conversion pages, their browser sends a cookie to the Google server. Then a small conversion tracking image is displayed on your site. When such a match is made, Google records a successful conversion for you.

The ability to see the performance of each keyword is also crucial. This is achieved by producing and closely analysing 2 reports…

The google keyword report (for cost information)


Your sales report (from your web analytics tool). In addition, you can tag the keyword destination URL in order to gather even more accurate data. There are other methods which can be used but these are the basics. With this info you can tweak your campaign and target/add converting keywords to your list.

Yes I know,

for the beginner, on the outside looking in, it can seem an extremely complicated process and when you don’t understand it, it is! I have seen countless newbies lured in by the instant traffic and shiny $$$ signs. In their excitement, and without proper understanding, they either don’t get the steps correct or they miss them altogether!

I knew this kid who…

was desperate for leads and didn’t want to spend money to learn. C’mon, that’s a waste of your ad budget right? :) Anyway, he set up his Google account and started driving traffic to his high converting web page; only it didn’t convert very well…

…in fact, it didnt convert at all! The idiot had messed up the tracking code and while he sent a hoard of visitors to his site, over $1000 worth of visitors to be exact, all they got to see was a 404 error!

What A Dumbass, and yes, it was me 😉

Do NOT make the same silly mistakes.

But Yes, You Are Right

PPC is without a doubt the best and fastest way to traffic and sales. That’s all business is, finding people and making sales, agree?

But you MUST know what you are doing or you will die fast.

Inside the Yaghi Labs Internet Business Academy, we are teaching online marketers how to be profitable straight out of the gate.

No hours of frustration, no $1000’s of wasted ad spend, easy decision right? 😉

How To Get Clicks To PPC Campaigns

Curious to know how to get more clicks on your PPC Campaigns? Follow this series of steps to begin receiving more clicks on your PPC campaigns.

For starters, if you can check off these initial steps that are critical to your PPC campaign in getting clicks then you’re on the right path.

  • First, you must write effective ads to your audience that will push the right hot buttons.
  • Second, you must know how to get your ad shown to qualified buyers only.
  • Third, you must have the time and energy to consistently optimize your campaign.
  • Lastly, for the entire duration of your campaign you’ll need to make continuous improvements on return-on-investment (ROI). The ultimate goal of every PPC campaign is to get more sales and pay less for your traffic.

What’s The Value Of A Click Anyway?

Before deciding that you just want clicks and a lot of them, first determine what the value of a click is to you and your business.

How much will you gain from a click if it converts?

You need to figure out the value of one of your PPC clicks. The best way to find this figure is to start with the value of a customer and then work backwards. This will help you to determine how much you can afford on a PPC click.

Also, know when to stop spending because throwing money on a PPC campaign does not ensure more clicks, and definitely doesn’t ensure more quality leads.

Once you determine your maximum monthly budget for your campaign, then you’ll need to focus on optimizing your PPC campaign to generate more success from there. This requires testing again and again to discover that long sought after “sweet spot” with your target audience.

You’ll also have to run your bids well, and operate the bidding system in a strategic manner. If its clicks you want then your entire PPC campaign needs to be evaluated and optimized with the best practices to get your ad shown to the right target audience who will want to click your ad.

Your landing page will also have to be optimized for conversion. If the search user clicks your ad, and isn’t satisfied with the page it brought him or her to, they’ll likely click off of your page fairly quickly. This increases your bounce rate, which tells Google that your ad is neither relevant nor effective to that particular audience or search query.

All the pieces of a PPC campaign have to be working strategically with one another. If one part is slacking then you’re not going to be getting the clicks you desire.

Not Getting Enough Clicks? Start From The Beginning…

Keyword research is where you begin.

Group your keywords into various categories for your ad groups. You need to do this first step to fully establish your search strategy.

What is a search strategy?

This is where you identify the keywords’ search volumes, estimated cost-per-clicks (CPC), uncover other keyword opportunities – such as competitor keywords, and make sure you have no duplicate keywords in any of your ad groups. This step will also avail some insight into the people who are searching for your product or service and how they are searching for you.

After completing your keyword research and identifying what ad groups and keywords you want to target, you can establish your campaign settings. This might seem as an obvious step, but if done incorrectly it can jeopardize your campaign rather quickly.

Setting-up your campaign includes:

  • geographic targeting
  • networks – search vs. display
  • targeting users by device
  • budding options
  • defining your daily budget

The next piece of the getting clicks puzzle is writing your ads

The most important thing to remember here is to cater your ad copy to the specific ad group you are writing it for.

An example of a general ad template is:

  • first line -headline
  • second line -benefit statement
  • third line – call to action
  • fourth line – display URL
  • fifth line -destination URL

Now the root domain of the display and the destination URL must always be the same, but generally an ad will perform better by writing the display URL as www.example.com/keyword even if it’s not the actual URL you’re sending them to.

Another way to appeal to the search query and user is through dynamic keyword insertion into the ad.

Here’s a common example:

  • first line – {KeyWord:Headline}
  • second line – benefit statement
  • third line – call-to-action
  • fourth line – display URL
  • fifth line – destination URL

This strategy tends to increase the click-through-rate (CTR), but it’s crucial that your ad and destination URL remain highly relevant to the user’s search query. If these are not relevant, you will end up paying for clicks that won’t convert and also increase your bounce rate.

Now your campaign is properly set-up to gain the most clicks for your campaign.
But never just set it and forget it. You must always provide your campaign with on-going management. This includes keyword monitoring, split testing ad copy, network exclusions, bid monitoring, and conversion tracking.

Lastly you’ll also want to integrate Google Analytics account with your Google AdWords account. This will allow you to view post-click statistics and optimize your PPC campaign for the best results through refining and fine tuning the implemented strategies from above.

How you are paid and how much you will earn

Publishers are paid via Google AdSense’s global payments system. Advertisers manage product feeds via their Google Merchant Center account, and they can access Google Ad Planner within their Google Affiliate Network account to evaluate whether a potential publisher affiliate is a good fit.

There is no way to estimate how much an affiliate will make within the Google Affiliate Network. Affiliates are paid by commission off the products they choose to sell, and commission rates are varied among the different advertisers.

In order to make a decent profit, you will have to be able to drive smart traffic to your blog or website. A Google affiliate or publisher earns more commissions by getting more transactions from his/her blog or website, such as a purchase or sign up. You must strictly follow the Google Affiliate Network quality standards and advertiser-specific terms.

How Does Affiliate Marketing Work? – The Guaranteed Road To Success

Entrepreneurs and business opportunists all over the world have been looking for a way to make money online without having a product of their own. Thanks to affiliate marketing this is now possible.

Affiliate programs work by paying commissions when a specific action is taken. The three types of actions in which an affiliate can be paid are through clicks, leads, and sales.

Sites such as yahoo publisher or Google ad sense are perfect examples of websites that pay affiliates for clicks. Whenever a visitor clicks on an ad you make money, that’s it. Advertisement clicks can generate anywhere from $0.10 cents to $15.00 for a single click, and sometimes much much more!

As an affiliate you’ll want to stay up to date with the latest and most effect traffic generation strategies. Driving targeted traffic to your website will generally increase your click through rates. The operators take care of all the advertising costs and ad targeting on your website. All you’ll have to do is enter a snippet of HTML tracking code into your website and you’re all set.

As for sales commissions, single affiliates can earn anywhere from 5% – 75% of the money generated by each customer they refer. This type of revenue can last for a single transaction or on a continuous basis. Either way, an affiliate has virtually unlimited earning potential as he or she can affiliate with an unlimited amount of companies.

Now even though one can affiliate with lots of companies, that doesn’t mean it’s the best way to go. Most affiliates experiencing success usually work with only a few companies and focus all their efforts into the promotion of one product at a time.

Affiliate marketing is a lot like chess, in the sense that you’d want to be strategic in your marketing efforts. Promoting 10 different companies will surely spread any affiliate to thin. In order to win in this game, it’s best to start by focusing your efforts on one product promotion at a time.

Now once your websites are set up the only thing you’ll have to do is test and tweak. By testing different landing pages and ad copy you can maximize your conversions. As an affiliate you’ll want to also have extensive knowledge on how to advertise and market effectively. Once you’ve mastered advertising and marketing online, then you’ll be ready to create you’re own product and have affiliates promoting for you.

If you want to start working for yourself but feel you don’t know how, then affiliate marketing may be your golden ticket. If you have a computer and a decent internet connection then you can get started today.

The best part about working in this industry is that you can set up websites once that will continue to generate revenue for you forever. With a good mentor and a little dedication you can become an expert affiliate marketer in no time.

Q: is Facebook PPC the best place to generate leads now?

What is the best length of a squeeze page video? What money-making strategies work with a $500 start-up budget? and is Facebook PPC the best way to generate leads? these questions are all answered inside…

Remember couple days back, i showed you this new Q&A feature at jimyaghi.com?

Well, i meant to pick some questions to answer by email. FORGOT! oh well. let’s knock out a few right now:


  • Q. What is the best length of a squeeze page video?

A. Keep squeeze videos under 60 seconds.

Our tests show squeeze pages which give too much information don’t convert well. Curiosity is the only force that will make a person take the RISK of giving up their private contact information. < You Respond Here >


  • Q. What money-making strategies would you recommend for a newbie with a $500 start-up budget?

A. The fastest way to make money is to sell a tangible product.

Tangible products are simple to explain and easy for customers to understand. Research a product you can source cheaper than the market, or a product that is rare/hard to find. Get the item and sell it in an eBay auction. Done.

Listing fees are cheap, you practice your copywriting skills, and your risk is low– at least you’ll make your money back.

it’s what i would do :-)  < You Respond Here >


  • Q. Is Facebook PPC the best way to generate leads right now?

A. No. Don’t generate leads on FB. There’s little to “like” about a squeeze-page.

People on FB like to “like” stuff — or share what they enjoy with their buddies. Instead, create audience from FB’s PPC with a “reverse-squeeze”:

That is, Grab the lead if it comes, but focus on getting those who click your ads to spread the word. < You Respond Here >


That’s enough for today. you can submit more questions at our website or click any question above to respond with your opinion.


P.S. These questions are all answered in a lot more detail in the…

Google Wonder Wheel – a Theme-Based Keyword Research Tool

I just learned about a Google experiment that you can use for keyword research. This is another tool that helps you go wide and find new possible markets to get into.

Google Wonder Wheel in Action for the term 'Network Marketing Leads'
Google Wonder Wheel in Action for the term 'Network Marketing Leads'

Since I’m on the road right now, I won’t have time to get into how to use the tool. But i’ll give you really quick instructions to get started with it.

This keyword research tool gives you a graphical representation of related themes to a search term you specify. Your search term appears in the center of a wheel. Around the wheel are some popular keywords that Google associates closely with your search term. These are natural markets to move into when expanding your pay-per-click campaign.

If you like, you may click any of the related themes to explore it further and find even more markets.

Repeat this as many times as you want and grow your keyword list exponentially with ideas you might never have thought of.

To get access to the Google Wonder Wheel, just paste this code into your address bar

javascript:void(document.cookie=”PREF=ID=4a609673baf685b5:TB=2:LD=en:CR=2:TM=1227543998:LM=1233568652:DV=AA:GM=1:IG=3:S=yFGqYec2D7L0wgxW;path=/; domain=.google.com”);

This sets up a cookie telling Google to add the Wonder Wheel to your search preferences.

Just run a search as normal in Google. On the results page, you will see a “Show Options” link directly under your search box. Click it and choose Wonder Wheel from the left. That’s it!

Thanks to http://blogoscoped.com/archive/2009-03-24-n84.html for introducing me to the Wonder Wheel and supplying the cookie code above.

Why Won’t Google EVER display my Ads Anymore?

Guys, don’t panic, don’t get frustrated, and don’t be so quick to give up.

There are resources out there that are meant to make it easy for every single newbie. Most of you are simply not tapping into these resources at all! You’re entrepreneurs here–this is what we do–we figure things out and we don’t give up till we do.

It’s come to my attention that some of you are absolutely devastated because Google either stopped displaying your ads…or it never had shown them in the first place. This is normal for anyone who is working in a brand new Adwords account.

Here’s the story of how i figured it out for my friend, and one of your fellow students, Sophie.

Your account is receiving no impressions because it’s under review. Don’t ask me what the heck that means, i just found out about it today. But from what I’ve seen the people getting hit by it are the ones who made too many changes in a brand new account.

To avoid this in future, when you create a new account, just create one campaign with one adgroup inside it. Inside that adgroup, only place ONE keyword with two ad variations.

It’s very likely that this “account review” process doesn’t take long anyway. I’ve never faced this problem myself.

I was able to speed it up so that it was done almost immediately for Sophie. I have no special pull–I logged in from her account and spoke to the chat staff. Any one of you can do it just as easily.

To begin with, I ran some of my own diagnostic tests.

I looked in her campaign settings and checked that she had geo-targeting to include the USA.

Next, i checked she was only targeting the Google network (not the Google partners nor the content network). She was.

I then checked that she had an adequate daily budget. She had a very small one, so i bumped it up to $100 per day. I did this to eliminate the chance that her budget was too low for Google to want to start running her ads.

Then, I checked to see if she had accelerated delivery of her ads on. She did not. So i turned it on instead of even delivery. It’s best to use accelerated delivery because that makes sure that your ads are ALWAYS shown until your daily budget is depleted–instead of trying to spread it out to make your budget last all day.

When all was checked, i saved the changes i made. And then i waited about 15 minutes.

Next, I wanted to simulate being in the USA as a real user running a Google search. Of course, how else was I going to see these US targeted ads if I’m searching from Jordan? To do this, I used a wonderful web proxy called hidemyass.

I punched in Google.com so I was accessing it through the proxy.

Then I typed into the proxy-accessed Google search one of Sophie’s keywords that I’d seen in her adgroup.

But none of her ads displayed. :(

I went back and changed the bid on that keyword to $5 per click. What if her bid was too low to get her front-page placement? I waited 15 minutes for the changes to propagate and ran the search again through the proxy.
Still, her ads wouldn’t display.

“Alright,” I thought to myself. “I don’t know what other weird things Sophie’s done when she setup this campaign–so I’m gonna start over.”

I built a brand new campaign targeting only the USA. It had only ONE adgroup, and ONE keyword inside it in exact match. I bid $5 per click on that keyword and set the campaign budget to $100 for the day. The keyword I picked was one that I knew receives over 1,000 impressions a month. I wanted to avoid the chance that it’s one of those rarely searched keywords Google hates.

15 minutes later, I re-ran the search. Still nothing.

I changed the keyword. Nothing.

I decided to try a different landing page. Any page would do, so I picked one off the Google sponsored search results and tested with it. Nothing.

Once i exhausted all tests–i knew that I had done everything a user can do. It was time to get tech support on this.

Since it was outside business hours, and I was tired as hell…I went to sleep and waited for the next day’s business hours.

I clicked the Contact Us link. There, i went to the live chat option and spoke to a Google rep.

I explained that this account belonged to a client of mine and she had recently set it up. She only ever had 2 impressions on the account. I explained that my bids were high at $5 per click and that i had tried various keywords without any impressions.

The rep asked what i used to test. I responded that i used a proxy to make sure that Google believed i was searching within the US. The rep kindly said he would look into the account if I would stand by.

I waited.

A few minutes later, the rep returned.

“Okay, I can’t see any reason why your ads aren’t showing so i’m going to need to escalate this. Where can I email you?” he asked.

I gave him my best e-mail address, and thanked him graciously for taking the time to look into this for me. I apologised for inconveniencing him with the trouble and left.

Sure enough, within an hour or so, i received an email from the Google rep.

He explained that the account was under review. The matter was corrected and the account was ready to be used.

And that’s how you get your account out of review, and ready for use.

Jim Fights Some PPC Demons (and 16 New Leads / day)

For this adventure, and over the following weeks I’m going to scale up my Pay Per Click campaign from the 150 leads a day it’s bringing now to 3 times that — 450 leads a day. This is a stepping stone toward the eventual goal of 1000!

Hi guys and girls!

My name is Jim Yaghi and you’re joining me on the second video of my coffee adventures.

For this adventure, and over the following weeks I’m going to scale up my Pay Per Click campaign from the 150 leads a day it’s bringing now to 3 times that — 450 leads a day. This is a stepping stone toward the eventual goal of 1000!

Last month I attended a live event in Las Vegas at the Venetian hotel called Inner Mastermind. If you’re into it, I shot some fun videos of my trip for that event. You can find them on my blog or Facebook.

Anyway, this month a product launched by the name of the Arbitrage Conspiracy which was a product of that event. In case you’ve been hibernating under a rock and you didn’t hear all the buzz, the story goes that three young fellas from Canada were consistently pulling in as much as 150,000 dollars PER day online using Pay Per Click. What was more interesting to me was that Aymen, the main speaker at the event told me that they spent between 50-100 thousand dollars a day on pay per click ads alone.

Naturally, when I was invited by my friend Mike Dillard to attend and represent Magnetic Sponsoring there, I jumped up. Within a few days I got on a plane and flew over from Jordan to Vegas!

There wasn’t a great deal of difference between what they were doing with CPA and what i was doing with home business opportunity leads using pay per click. I used Google Adwords and Yahoo they used Adwords and Yahoo. They also used MSN and some other smaller and less trafficked pay per click engines–which honestly i can’t be bothered with right now. I tried MSN before and their conversion tracking was making mistakes so I abandoned it.

Also, Aymen’s team were making customised landing pages for each keyword and placing a single keyword in each adgroup–and so was I.

None of their keyword research tools were new to me. They used the Google tool mainly, a few misspell and typo generators, word combiners, alexa, and so on–i was doing that already.

But i learned two very important lessons. One was the use of automation tools to build up massive keyword lists and upload them all in one shot. Obviously they didn’t filter these keywords too much becuase no one could do that to a list of 1 million words. Their strategy was to first sweep the market with these million keywords and find keyword types and themes that showed SOME results with low bids. And by tracking the keywords that worked, they would kill the ones that wouldn’t convert. And they would laser target their attack to improve their click rates, click costs, and conversion rates.

So as soon as I got home, I got to work.

I pulled up alexa and used its related sites feature to find domains in the network marketing and home business industry. A small list of about 50 domain names came out. I then used a typo and misspelling generator tool to turn that into a list of around 800,000 keywords.

Oh but Google’s quality score would shut me DOWN if i tried to upload those keywords to my account. Instead, i posted them to Yahoo becuase it’s less strict. Several hours and yahoo accounts later, i had the keywords all ready to go.

Ok, let’s pause for a minute. I’m in phase 1 right now. Remember the 3 challenges i have to go through? Impressions, clicks, and conversion.

Right now, I’m focused on phase 1 ONLY. Keywords that get impressions. That’s all i care about.

Well Yahoo gave me impressions–very few. In my experience, Yahoo has always been weaker than Google for the Home Business niche–maybe someone else has better luck with Yahoo than i do, i dont know.

Not to worry. What’s next?

Well, I’ve gotta take this stuff into Google where there’s lots of fish. Out of the 800,000 keywords, i had to choose! I sorted all the campaigns by impressions and took the top 4 keywords from each campaign.

Now I still worry about the Google Quality Score since i’m really not focusing on Click Thru Rate or conversions–i want to keep my landing page generic. So i figured i’ll place these keywords on the Google content network first. Again, that’s a much less strict place to advertise than is the Google search.

I ran this for a few days and lo-and-behold…not only did i get impressions and clicks, but i got a super high conversion rate!

Now i get about 16 new conversions from that little experiment. Not bad but i gotta get disciplined about repeating this a few more times.

Go try this out for yourselves and let me know how it works. Meanwhile, i’m gonna go fight my demons and report to you in a few days.

Take Care.
