Started First Ad - Need Advice

So i recently setup my first ad using Marks bidding strategy. My initial clickthroughs are 0.1% and my average ad position is 2.8.

Should I be increasing my bid to get higher positions and higher clickthroughs or should I just leave it there and reduce my bids after 30 clicks?

I think 2.8 is already a pretty good spot. You actually need to keep raising your bid by 20% each day if you're below position number 4. You could reduce your spending by 20% (and keep reducing it by 20%) after each 30 clicks until your ad goes down until position 4, then monitor your profits. If it is profitable after 200 – 300 clicks then you can leave it there.

test test test, find your sweet spot on which position is making you the sales.

Dont get into any bidding wars with others, and remeber no 1 spot is not gauranteed any more, Google decides who they want in the no 1 spot now, things have changed, so give Google what they want
