PPC Cost of Entry Prohibitive Here

Hi guys,

had a go setting up a ppc campaign (using adwords editor) for health cure with high gravity...google advises first page cost is $8 for many of the main keywords...would need a sale rate of 1 in 4 to even break even! ..aargh, this is too costly to test for a newbie.

guess I'll let it run a while with a low budget (so few clicks) and check back, and do a few more videos and try again..

AlSedge,

Look beyond the main competitive keywords and go after those with less competition and lower CPC and see if you can make those convert. Remember most marketers are lazy and frankly suck, don't play the same game they play. Think harder and play for keeps.

If you want to see an expensive click, type in "no win no fee solicitors" into the Google keyword tool. That click separates the men from the boys. :)
