Your experience advertising affiliate programs by adwords?

Sat Dec 29, 2007 6:05 pm

I have some questions for those more experienced with adwords

1.How well does the traffic convert? (The number of sales you get after a average number of clicks)

2.What is better to use in the ad, a landing page, or a affiliate link?

3.Does the content network sends a equal amount of converts as the search network?

1. Depends on adgroups. I have some that convert at 10%, others that convert at 0.5%.

2. In my experience, a landing page.

3. No, but you can still get a lot of traffic from there.

We have many clients earning amazing amounts of PROFIT with adwords as well as other PPC networks.

1) Depends on the relevancy of:

ad title
ad copy
landing page / offer

2) Landing Page or Lead Capture page

3) No... but may generate more traffic at less cost

1. Normal: 1-2%
2. Landing page to collect emails
3. Search network is better

If you can keep cost low with lower price keywords and make good landing page it works good.

I haven't had a whole lot of success using adwords. I can usually generate a reasonable amount of clicks but I never got any signups using this method so I'm in the same PPC boat as you. I'm trying to learn more about this method.

Yes if you're collecting leads only with an irresistible offer to opt in.

I just have never gotten any results using adwords. I haven't been able to get the hang of it yet. The times I've tried I usually burn my money up and get no results.

Google offers some of the most targeted traffic you can get. But they are pretty expensive. So sending them just to some affiliate offer probably won't cut it. It's better to have some landing page to build trust and increase conversions.
It can also be profitable to build a mailing list, but you need to be good at copywriting for that. At least that has been my experience.
Traffic from the content network is usually cheaper but of less quality. Targeting specific sites in your niche is a great way to expand the traffic on an already good campaign.
