I have made my first adwords sales.

Postby sissy » Tue Sep 05, 2006 3:35 pm

Ok, folks. It has finally happened. I having been fooling with Adwords since April and I have finally made my first sale. No, make that sales. I have made two in one day. :D

I had even quit looking at my ClickBank account but checked it out today and I had made two sales over the weekend. Not much for the 'ol Pro's on this forum but a defining moment for me.

My joy over the sales "kinda, sorta" makes up for my mistake last week. I had increased one of my ad bids and accidentally added an extra 0. Ouch, my account ran up pretty fast with $10.00 bids before I caught it. Oh, well. Good lesson for all. Double check after changing anything.

I have been lurking around this forum for over a year but have been too intimidated to post. I haven't felt like I had anything to say or that my comments might be irrelevant and questions could be stupid.

I think that my learning curve would circle the globe.

It is not the is the fear.

Now I feel like I belong. I just had to share this with people who understand. Trying to express this joy to clueless co-workers and friends is useless.

Sissy :wink:

Thank you for the encouraging words, Ralph. I knew that some of the folks here would understand.

I am a habitual "outside-of-the-box" enthusiast. What are you doing that is working for you.

Although PPC is my favorite and most profitable, I have 30+ blogs I maintain, and I'm currently making a *comfortable* monthly income from Myspace. MySpace is a freakin goldmine...but I'm only pulling Adsense earnings from there, but WELL WORTH IT!!

I am rather new at this and am having a terrible time with adwords. Nothing I am trying is working. Hearing about your success encourages me. I too have quit checking my clickbank account. Maybe I'll take a look!! Congrats

Adwords can be awesome, if you know what you're doing. I recommend reading what Lynn suggests.

If she suggests it you know it's good!

Hi Sissy,

I'm new myself to Lynn's excellent Forum, I know Exactly how you felt when you made those sales! I've tried several Products on Adwords from Clickbank to Affiliate merchant Programs and although downheartened and unable to make a sale it was a relief when one finally came in! it's all about tweaking the Adwords Campaigns that have worked for you, I trialled many different keywords and variants with the text within the Campaigns, you'll be surprised when you suddenly find your sales increasing and it's usually just due to certain keywords you have added or changes in your Ad text!

Good Luck and Great to hear of your Sales,
