Default My month 1 results

I thought I would put together a month 1 recap to help me analyze how things went and where they are headed. I also wanted to get some feedback from other members.

During month 1, I signed up for all 5 networks but so far I've only used Traffic Vance and Zango.

Traffic Vance
:

7 campaigns
$385.99 Spend
$241.25 Revenue
-62.5% ROI

Zango
:

4 Campaigns
$44.28 Spend
$205.50 Revenue
464% ROI

Overall:

$430.27 Spend
$446.75 Revenue
104% ROI

Observations from the Month:

1) Using the tracker is hard - it isn't updating my revenue number correctly and I had to do most of these calculations by hand. Any suggestions?

2) I had a great ROI on Zango but I got into a bidding war with someone else, probably from here and had to check my bids too often.

3) Scaling - seems more difficult to do in PPV.

1. I manually track heaps. Don't worry, you're counting your money so its ok.

2. I suspect I am getting in bidding wars with others as well. Get used to it. To be very sneaky you can launch 4 more campaigns bidding on the same url. So your competiton will go from number1 to number 5 with you holding the 4 positions above him. Once I went nuts and launched 20 new campaigns. My competiton must have thought "what the fuck is going on here" because he opted out.

3. Scaling can be done but it is hard. You should have many campaigns doing small/medium numbers with the odd campaign doing some big numbers. I have 2 urls that generate around $3k per week on a $2k spend, so numbers can start to grow.

Thanks Harry!

Do you use any kind of tracking software? Excel?

Nice tip on the bidding strategy, I will give that a go.

This is my biggest concern about PPV. If we're all joining the same networks, and promoting the same offers, won't we all just be competing against each other?

I'm new to PPV so please forgive the simple question, I'm just trying to figure a few things out.

Your URL list is still generated by keywords, so people's lists will differ based on what keywords you use to generate your list. You can also just find sites/pages to bid on manually without using the generator. As for the offers, well there are tons of those out there. Plus PPV marketing isn't just limited to direct linking.
