Making Money Using Adwords – with Test results

Posted by: Socrates Socratous on: Mar 19th, 2007

Is it actually possible to actually make money with PPC?

Maybe you are one of the people that got burned
with PPC and Adwords and you “gambled away” your
mortgage money “betting” on keywords

Maybe you are one of the people that did not get
burned, neither made any money. Just plain ol’
wasting precious time

You are not alone. The internet is full of horror
stories about people FAILING with Adwords.

There is also a smaller percentage of people showing
PROOF where they make thousands of dollars every
week with it.

Question is, Who do you want to be?

In real world more than 90% of the people live
paycheck to paycheck, struggling to get along.

But you chose not to be one of those. You want to
be the small percentage that makes the difference.

That is why you are reading my message right now…

So I will assume that you want to be part of the
smaller percentage that makes the money without excuses.

In December 2006, I decided to do a TEST.

I decided to enter a market I never had experience with
I decided I was not going to use my real name
and I decided I was going to make 10K a month in 3
months in this market alone.

My Plan was to do it with Google Adwords alone.

Beginning december I started working on my plan.

I did my research
I found an affiliate product
I created my adwords campaigns
and begun getting traffic…
Fast forward 3 months later…
(DEC 06, JAN 07, FEB 07)

Here are my results:
(Clicking on the images will open full graph in new window)

2006. Starting on the 47th week of 06 (Beginning December)
2006 Sales Graph Partial
The numbers accross the bottom indicate the number of the week in the year
the numbers in the boxes indicate sales value for that week.
As you can see above, by the last week of Dec, I made $2031 in a single
week.  (The very last week was a 1 day week in December and that is why it
only shows $170)

Beginning 2007. The graph shows up to March 3rd
2007 Sales Graph Partial
As you can see from this graph, by the last week of the testing
period I manage to make more than my goal of $10,000 in a single month.
$11,813 to be exact.

Considering my Adwords cost was only 35% of that,  65% of
that amount is pure profit.

In addition to that, I had a few other income streams tied into
the test which made an extra $2000 that doesnt show in my
Clickbank stats above.

(The graphs are created with CBAccountant. An excellent tool
that will download and analyze the data from ALL my
clickbank accounts automatically. It literally saved me
hours every day.)

Considering that
I had NO experience in that market
I had no JV partners
I was a total unknown
I started from zero

My success and system are replicable.

I dont care if you never used PPC before
I dont care if you got burned and lost your mortgage money

You are probably wondering why I used the word “betting”
instead of “bidding” on keywords at the beginning of this letter.

Because if you bid on keywords, you will make money
if you bet on keywords, you are most likely to lose

What do you want to do?

Bid or Bet?? You decide…

Biding requires some research, work and measures.
Betting doesnt require anything. Just head on to google’s
website and bet away money.
Coming up on wendnesday:
“The 3 most basic elements to making money”
-Without one of these 3 elements, you will not make a penny”

    Hi, Your article is really interesting. I have search long and hard for an online business that works but have been unsuccessful for the last couple of years, now that I have a new born I really want to find something that works to do online. The info you gave made me feel hopeful…but I still wonder, will it work for me.

    Glad to hear of your success.
    What is the secret?

  5. Jenni Hansenon 20 Mar 2007 at 3:59 pm

    Wow! I don’t mcuh, as the person you emailed is my mom, (guru granny) and she’s in the hospital.

    She has talked to me about ppc and other traffic tactics, as she had begun training me on some aspects of her business. I also know that she hasn’t done much with Adwords, as she’s too afraid of losing her proverbial shirt.

    On her behalf, “I’m impressed”, and I hope she wins something so that when she comes home from the hospital, she’ll have exciting news awaiting her. I know she would find this information invaluable, as she’s always looking for the right way to do things.

    Dear Socrates,
    Congrats on moving along so quickly and successfully. I read your info and it is very inspiring. I also am lookind to expand my business and hope to have many people go to it as it is a great membership to have and it is quite possible for ANYONE to QUICKY increase their income level even on a part-time business. AS well in the world we live in today, I reccomend everyone to check out my website for protection. As well as an OPPORTUNITY at almost no cost to start right away to achieve the goals that would make their financial income sky-rocket in no-time as well as earning a RESIDUAL INCOME for life (and your children continue to collect these earnings for life once you have passed ). THIS IS TRULY A VERY EASY AND AFFORDABLE WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR FINANCIAL EARNINGS!!!!

    Hi Socrates and all who read this.

    I want to no if there is anyone out there that could take my website ( make it work on Adwords as all i here all the time is how well someone else does on Adwords.

    Could you Socrates help me or anyone else who comes in here.

    Much appreciated.

    Hi Socrates,

    I for one would be interested in your system for using adwords, as I’ve had mixed results using them in the past. I’ve purchased a few decent manuals on the subject the last one being “Affiliate – Project X” but it strikes me that once products like these are launched everyone starts chasing the same areas so we all get watered down results and blame ADwords for the crap results. Research is probably the key that most of us are weak on as it takes up the most time, but would give the biggest payback if we did it right especially with ADwords.

    Look forward to more on the subject.

    Hello Socrates,

    Thanks for the information posted, that is great stuff, but the thing will be, how much money do you need to start with, I have heard the term, it takes money to make money, but when you are in a low budget, how does one start something like that, I imagine that it will take a long time, so that when you find a product to sell, and you start small, you can use the money you earn to buy more PPC, but how long does it take than for that matter….. by the way, I love to make that much too, and for what I can see, I am encourage to do something like that, I am starting out, and this is a very good article…

    Thanks again
    Ludier Pabon
