Confused with AdWords - help please!
Well I haven't done any AM work at all in the last month, I tell you school is just overwhelming and it gets worse and worse every year! I'm doing a programme called the IB Diploma (International Baccalaureate) it is insane - so much work! So unfortunately I had to sort out my priorities...and education came first. Then to top off overwhelming workloads I got a lead in the school show...so AM went right to the bottom of the list.
But it's holidays now so I want to get straight into AM, sort it all out and just monitor it next term. Two-weeks rules out the stunning 90-day plan sadly, AdWords is my main option and I'm going to take the punt.
Problem is I'm super confused with AdWords...I've watched all of Mark's videos and still I'm just not clicking.
Here is my current position...
I'm going to advertise a Click Bank product in Google AdWords.
I'm going to link directly to their site - No landing page.
That’s all I’ve decided so far.
I've used Traffic Travis and formed a keyword list - I don't think it’s very good…actually I have no idea whether it’s good or bad. When I was going through the Google AdWords process. Only a few of the Keywords were, given CPC, and ad position estimates.
The products related Keywords were searched over 9,000 times in overture - so I thought that was pretty good, there is little if no competition…a bad thing possibly?
I have NZ$175, to spend on this AdWords campaign.
I almost put in my credit card details on the AdWords account signup and stopped and thought - I need help from Mark, Sean, Adrian, Promocode etc...
What should I doooo? Where do I go now? I’m starting to doubt myself, I would really like this effort to be more of an educated guess rather than a ‘quick money making punt’.
Oh yeh - Split Testing confuses me, and impressions?
P.S. I haven't officially signed up to AdWords because I have decided to wait for replies until I give Google my billing info.
