    If done well, Adwords can make you amazing profits..I tried Adwords/Clickbank and made bad losses..
    Tried Adwords/CPA and made terrible losses

    I stopped buying "guru" ebooks and now focusing on researching for myself free information on the net

    We started a tour company with a partner of mine and started advertising our travel services on the net. After trial and error i created good ads based on free info i got on the internet. the keywords are very targeted probably thats why i have very good conversion rates.

    Business has been good and God is great..Planning to rent a big office now in the city.

    He said he started a tour company. As for how long, does it matter? He made a profit whose definition is Revenues - Expenses. He probably did it in short time since he's now planning to rent an office. Good for him.

    it took us just two months... The way we do it we create a customized landing page for the particular keyword and writing short sales copy (max 10 paragraphs) based on the keyword...at the end if it we have a lead generation form...works very very well.. (a "guru" would charge you $97 for this piece of info)

    for 5 years I always thought the big moneys was in credit cards, mortgage or click bank products so kept banging my head trying to compete...the thing is that these markets are ULTRA competitive and folks with low budgets will have a miserable time trying to compete with big advertisers..it embrassing to admit that in more than 6 yrs, i have only recieved probably a total of $100 dollars in commission from clickbank..

    Its only this year i realized I could make money in an industry i was conversant with...the "big commissions" are not necessarily in the financial markets or weight loss, or mesothelioma, pet market etc..you might get high blood pressure just trying to make commissions through adwords advertising in these markets...try something else

    thanks...The profits are high bcause tours are high priced products..so you can make gross sales of about $10,000 to $15,000 and after deducting payments to suppliers you make NETT figures of about $3000

    Yes, congrats. Now make more profits by increasing your quality traffic and decrease your costs. The next $300 might get you a $4000 profit.

    That's quite a jump from mortgages/credit cards to tours. Do you do the tours yourself, or just selling access to different types of tours run by others?

    That's great to hear. I think we all hear all of those sad/bad stories about people losing money.. but your proof that with the right keywords and ads, profit can come, and come nicely.

    Tours are service based..client sees ad, clicks to your site, inquires, we customize the tour package, client send money by wire or by credit cards after agreeing on price

    when i was emplyed, i worked as the website optimiser for the tour company i worked for for about 6 yrs...all that time i thought to suppliment my income i would just build adsense based sites and make a cool $1000 per month...but the realities of life are not usually the same as per the dreams in our heads..thats why i thought my "quickest route to riches" was to build adsense sites based on "top paying keywords" but this turned out to be very difficult than i had predicted.

    So when i went to self employment i did SEO work on tour based sites and thats when i was told my clients were making huge profits. It was then when I teamed up with a partner who knows tour reservations..i market and she converts the inquiries..we feed off each others strengths...she doesn't know SEO/Online Marketing and i do not know tour costings and bookings..so we are dependent on each other

    i agree this is great to go after other opportunities. but what do you mean that you started a tour company? are you selling the tours to the leads or just referring the leads to a tour company? just want to know b/c it seems like 1 is a lot easier than the other. thanks

    Hi , firstly I want to congratulate you on your success in finding your way to realize such profit .
    The second issue I want to ask you about something please : Can I create that landing page about a product of clickbank to promote through? Does it convert or not ??
    or it depends more on the way of promoting?

    as I am completely a newbie and I want to learn from others ' experiences and attempts

    Thanks in advance
