5 Tips to Pay-Per-Clicking

Hi, my name is Darryl Power and I have been using the internet for about 3 years. I used every way possible to generate traffic. But it was not until May 2003 when I found overture did my success really take off. But I am not here to tell you about my success, I'm here to give you some helpful tips with Pay-Per Click advertising which I learned over the past year. The following 5 Tips will help you target your specific audience, and help reach over 85% of internet users in a fast and effective way.

1. Bid on low cost relevant words

When you do your research you need to find words that not only define you website or services but are low cost and have little competition. You will also want to build a wide base of keywords, about a 30 or so to gain the maximum click through rate.

2. Qualify your Title and description

This one is simple; remember the 30 keywords you got; now you make up 6 to 7 ads with 3 to 4 keywords in them. By using the keywords in your title and description it is a fact that you can increase your click through rate by almost 40%.

3. Use unique landing pages

Now if you are promoting an affiliate product or a matter of fact any product you need to us unique landing pages. You should strive to create landing pages that have a review of the product you are selling. Reviews can increase your sales by 50% or more.

4. Use a professional URL

There is nothing more that will turn a buyer off from buying a product then having a URL that looks like an affiliate link. When you pick a domain name make sure it is keyword rich, descriptive and related to the product you are selling.

5. Finally, STICK TO YOUR BUDGET

Do not diverge from your budget. Calculate how much you will make per sale? What percentage of your visitors will buy? How much you are paying per click? Set a base limit on your cost per click around .08 to .10 cents. Remember you are only looking to make a profit.

Overall you will need to keep tweaking your ads in order to get the best Click through rates. Oh yea, start of with one or two products and build you campaigns around them, then repeat the process. Remember if you spend $200 in advertising and you make $1000 from you product, you just made $800.
