    I spend $3000 per month on CPC for Holistic Tinnitus Treatment

    I only sell about 60units per month. The product is sold for $39/unit, so 60units * $39 = $2340

    On average, I have to make about 8refunds

    That’s $2340 – (8*$39) = $2028

    So, it may appear that I am losing about $1000 per month on my CPC campaigns.

    As we all know, appearances can be deceiving. The real money is in the upsells. That’s where I make my profits.

    If you can get very cheap clicks with good conversion rate, you will definitely be profitable

    What is the point of stating the obvious.
    That's about as obvious as saying, "If you have a 7-figure income, you can live a cozy upper middle class lifestyle."

    Yeah, I know George Orwell once said, "sometimes the first duty of intelligent men is the restatement of the obvious." George Orwell made that statement in a totally different context.

    It is pretty straightforward. There are no gimmicks involved.
    I run CPC campaigns for buy keywords.
    The main buy keywords are:
    Buy, for example; Buy Supplements online
    Coupon, for example; Candles coupon
    Discount, for example; Hostgator discount
    Deal, for example; Hottest Testo Fuel Deals
    Shipping, for example; T-shirts free shipping

    Off course, not all "buy keywords" are applicable in every niche. It's up to you to select the keywords that are applicable.

    CPC campaigns are either run to make a sale or get a lead.
    CPC costs money. Who spends money without a concrete ROI in sight.
    If you simply want to increase brand awareness; then, you would be better off using a free traffic source.

    I'm telling you that always low conversion rate with on average total lower sales ,be frustrated for a long time.
    Why you are required brand awareness because of increasing product value and sales.I believe that irrelevant traffic and irrelevant leads cant increase branding value and sales.

    Social media sites like tumblr.com, instagram.com and pinterest.com offer a great opportunity to increase brand awareness. While the traffic from these sites does not have high conversion rates; they provide an important venue to broadcast your web-presence.
