Default Few start out questions pls

Hi there folks, I kind of asked this in another section. Maybe it was the wrong area but i shall be starting out with cpv soon after i have absorbed plenty of info. After reading the resources I decided to opt for account with traffic vance. I was origionally going to try out with lead impact but have realised that lots of people value the quality of traffic from TV.*

I certainly don't want to lose faith on my starting budget so thought I should get set up with the best available.*

I'll also have an acount with beyond hosting for tracking so think that should give me a fighting chance to track my leads

have some questions though, not sure if this would be the place for it. but If using traffic vance, what should I be setting the spend limit in order to get enough data about the campaign? I know this may vary some what and I know Tv can chew through lots of traffic so don't want to cut short too early. On the other hand I don't want to spank $500 in 2 minutes and wonder what the hell happened. what does anyone start a new campaign off at or is it more of an educated guess based on the URL's you choose to target?

also if using beyonds basic $45 a month package, will that handle the traffic volume from TV ok. I would rather get this right or as close as possible from the start than make silly mistakes trying to guess. I am of course prepared to speculate but don't want to be throwing money down the drain while in the dark for the first couple of days.

thanks!

You budget depends on offer and the number of URL's in the account. Of course, research your URL's before you start and then run them in batches. A good rule of thumb is to spend the offer payout per target to test, or a little more. For example, if your offer pays out $3.00, spend $3.00 on a target and see if it converts. This is a common mistake where people will have 1000 targets and see they spent $100 in a day and got no conversions. They will then give up thinking "CPV doesn't work!" In reality, you may have spent .10 per target and have no data to make a decision on!

Good luck and ask questions along the way.

perfect, that makes total sense. I guess if you can't convert after spending out as much on traffic you don't have a runner. so what your saying is, get some traffic information on each URL and test based on single targets (urls's/keywords) upto the payout amount? so maybe I could start off a campaign with 10 researched urls on an offer which pays $3 and expect to pay $30 in traffic?, once I assess the data, weed out the crap then add another 10 urls.
Maybe I could cap my spend at $40 dollar to give me some extra headroom in case I burn too quickly on a particular URL? would this be along the lines of where a new test might start out?

Thanks for the reply! I feel like I had a penny drop now. Its easy to get bogged down with the concept of it when in reality you just need to apply some common sense.
