Impossible to make money with Adwords?
I'm making decent money on my sites from natural search engine traffic and I'm considering trying adwords.
My problem is that either my math is wrong or it's nearly impossible to make money using adwords.
Some of you are making money so please explain what's wrong with my logic.
Even if I could get the phrases at 10 cents a click 1000 clicks would cost $100
I'd be very surprised if my landing page converted over 3% so that means out of 1000 clicks I'd be sending 30 people to the sales page of the product I'm trying to sell.
Even if his page converts at 3% that means I've made 0.9 sales which means I need to get a bit over $111 per sale just to break even.
10 cents a click seem unlikely on a phrase that has competition doesn't it?
And if I understand correctly 3% conversation rates are on the high side.
I've written some tracking code so I will have a better idea what my pages are converting at.
Anyway can you please explain to me what's wrong with my math or just how I can make money with this?
