Time for a New Experiment… 20 Ways to Make $100 a Day Online

ExperimentHi all!

Yes, it’s time for a new experiment. I’m letting my affiliate sites + Adsense percolate a bit to see how it goes. I’m getting roughly 2 sales a month from one site and just started another one a week ago, so we’ll see how things progress.

So I saw this post on “20 Ways to Make $100 Per Day Online” from  The Internet Marketing Inner Circle (sounds ominous).

If you want to check it out yourself, click here.

The idea is that an average person can build sustainable incomes working part time from home. It’s a collection of articles written by people who made this work in the real world, so hopefully the BS quotient will be low and the ability to actually apply these techniques will be high.

So I’m going to start working through this book a little at a time and I’ll share my results. For only $27, you get a nearly 250 page book documenting 20 different techniques to try, so I’m going to mine it for all its worth.

Keep your fingers crossed! Anybody out there already gone through this particular book?

Ad-sense Publisher Experiment, Day 36

Hi all…

Well, I have a few things to report on my Ad-sense Publisher Experiment…

First, as I reached the magic $50 limit for cost, I put my ad-sense campaign on “pause”.

Ad-sense Publisher Experiment, Day 36

As you can see from the above picture, I had 287 clicks in 30 days, with 566,614 impressions, an average CPC of $0.25 and a total cost of $52.19 for that campaign.

And as you can see (as the “well, duh!” moment), my campaign went downhill after I put it on pause.

My traffic has dropped off considerably.

In addition, I have had no new sales since August 9th. I wasn’t making much money before that anyway – maybe one sale every couple of weeks, but at least I was getting sales. 🙂

So I’m torn… The AdSense stuff obviously helped with traffic to my affiliate site. And it’s not really AdSense’s fault that the clicks weren’t converting to sales. So I think I may go ahead and let it run another month to see what shakes loose.

Anybody else having luck or have any good tricks for AdSense? I’m all ears!

Until next time…

Ad-sense Publisher Experiment, Day 20

ExperimentHey all…

So here we are at day 20 of my Ad-sense Publisher Experiment…

And what has it gained me? Well, not a whole heck of a lot…

As of this morning, I’ve had:

  • 386,454 Impressions
  • 142 Clicks
  • 0.04% Click-thru-rate
  • $0.22 Average click cost
  • $30.89 Total cost so far
  • 3.92 Average position

Ad-words Campaigns Day 20

And of all this… I’ve had… One sale.

Yes, that’s right. After 20 days and $30, I’ve made one affiliate sale netting me $2.45. So for $30 in PPC ads, I’ve earned $2.45. Somehow I don’t think I’m doing this right or it’s a scam.

But if it was a scam, I wouldn’t be reading about people making millions of $$ on Google, would I?

Ugh. We’ll see where this goes.
