    Ok Ok i know it is way too early to say this, but i really think the campaign i just started will be making me money.
    SEMrush
    today, i spent about 75 bucks...and made 120. Yes, it is too early to tell, and i have lots of optimization to do...but i have a good feeling.

    BTW...this is through advaliant (anyone have comments about them?)

    One thing that annoyed me though, is that adwords says I have 4 conversions...but advaliants reporting says only 3. is it possible that adwords is wrong? if not, will they give me an extra conversion?

    Nice job. I just started a few days ago with my first campaign since giving up on affiliate marketing over a year ago, and I got a similar ROI to you. I've spent the last few days tweaking and adjusting, so hopefully it'll get better.

    Congrats, and good luck with your campaign's future.

    What products are you promoting and what is there to choose from on Advaliant. Do they pay via Paypal?

    no, advaliant only pays with direct deposit (if you're making $1500/week+) or checks. my AM did say they would have paypal in the upcoming weeks...but who knows how long that will actually take.

    thank you very much...always apprecaite kind words. good luck.

    actually, I give away all my data from my last campaign on my blog post here:
    http://internetbusinessdaily.net/my-first-try-at-ppc-to-cpa-affiliate-marketing/

    i will be giving away all the data from this CPA offer when im done with it:)

    thanks. and, i probably wont:). i will however write up my experience on my blog.

    Update on the second day:

    I have spent almost $80 bucks so far today...and I'm at about $104 earnings. CPC's are still high, and can be optimized/lowered...i think i will actually be making money on this one.

    nice effort ...

    take it slow cause you can get discouraged very easily.

    just keep adjusting bids, adding keywords, and takin out ones that arent converting ...

    good luck!
