Does PPC Advertising work?

Discussion in 'Pay Per Click Advertising' started by aodat2, Apr 4, 2012.

    I'm seriously wondering about this actually. Does PPC advertising actually works? I've seen many people using it but rarely do I notice any response from PPC Advertising. I've tried Google Adwords but it does not really help at all. Most of the time, it just eats up money.

    Can you guys tell me for a fact that PPC Advertising really works? If so, which PPC Advertiser did you use?

    Thanks!

    I think you can choose some ad network with much less CPC than adwords. Like Adbrite. They have lesseer than 0.1 cents charged for a click. There are others too like Chitika and so many smaller ones.

    Yes it works. but you need to learn how to test and track your campaigns.
    Copy/paste then wait for sales/commissions doesn't work.

    Start by targeting , testing and tracking until you find an formula that produces best results.

    Try different ads, different landing pages, different offers...etc
    To be able to that you need a testing budget. besides your main advertising budget.

    If you do that, you will find that all traffic sources work perfectly. the only difference would be traffic volume.
    Not traffic quality, because you will be the one who controls traffic quality, not the ad network.

    PPC works very well for a lot of people, but only as well as your landing page.

    If google PPC does not work, then you need to look at your landing page, because google has lots of happy punters for a reason. Other PPC companies are not exactly going to have better traffic, but they will usually be cheaper.

    It works if you know how to use it.

    Don't expect to be rich by trying it for some time. You have to learn the skill.

    Yes The PPC campaign do works, but you really know who to make it effective. Focus on the keywords you must target atleast 30 keywords for a single ad campaign.Keep in mind the target audience as well.

    I have been around for some years and to be frank have never liked using ppc advertising because of the financial risk. I have much preferred using seo for serps power.

    However I was introduced to a system that is quite amazing. I used the extremely competitive keywords "make money", make money online" and "home business" and achieved quite stunning results and for; wait for it 4-8 cents per click with over 7000 clicks per month and my sales just took off.

    PPC does work but it's a lot harder for the little guys because you are in competition with the big firms and companies who have huge budgets to spend and who also get huge discounts per click because of the volume they provide. What I suggest is a 2 stage process: 1) Set aside a budget where you can cast a net of Broad Match or Phrase Match Keywords 2) Narrow your efforts as quickly as possible with exact match keywords. They just work on fine tuning your ads and landing pages.

    I just tried the Microsoft Adcenter and it performed horribly for me. I have been out of this business for a long time and just getting reacquainted after a layoff of my longtime software developer position.

    I have learned a few things after stepping back into the web business. First, free and low cost hosting has introduced people that shouldn't be in business online and they have devalued the entire market in general. Also, they have broken the trust with consumers. Years ago FREE!!!! meant you are going to get something without charge. What does FREEE!!! mean now, just another scam.

    The second and funny thing that I learned is that when people say they are making money, they are talking about $50 dollars a day or less. 10-12 years ago I was making 6k-7k a month for many years.

    The third thing that I learned is that everyone claims to have some magic formula and the vast majority are complete BS. I always get a laugh when some guy is in the BST section claiming he needs $30 ASAP or something to that effect to pay for his hosting etc... and you take a look at the guys signature and he is offering EXPERT SEO SERVICES GUARANTEED TO MAKE YOU THOUSANDS WEEKLY

    It's time to add something more constructive to the post:

    I suggest and have had great results by doing this; use godaddy and get a few .info adult themed domain names with basic hosting. This is going to cost about 15 bucks for the domain names and 3 months of hosting.
    From there get an affilate account with an adult site that provides database dumps or an api. Xhamster is the best for database dumps and Redtube has a great api. Those are free and will give you access to over 300,000 movies, pics etc. Create a few adult sites with using all free content and blast the pages with the ads you normally would use for PPC.

    By using the above method you WILL get large amounts of traffic and that will give you time to fiddle around with PPC idiosyncrasies while still earning.

    I have made far more money creating my own products and sending traffic to them via my own external adult sites that any other method.

    To answer the question of the post in my opinion, no PPC is not viable.

    Hey there yes ppc does work but its not easy or cheap with so much competition it can be difficult to profit from, but yes you need to test test and and track track all your ads which can be a pain if you dont know how also it could indeed be the landing page thats the problem. There are also cheaper options out there they can sometimes be more effective this of course depending on your target market and what it is your selling.

    Hi, PPC is something like it may or may not work, no matter how much leads it's gonna generate we have to go for it. PPC in worst case, it will make people aware of your website for many ideal people which is far better. I recommend to go for it in the initial stage.

    Thanks!

    I had the same results with Google Adwords, I just wasted a few vouchers on it and moved on.
