Default question

I am failing hard at PPV and I dont know why. I am down probably about 400 dollars, and have yet to find a winning campaign. is the trick to lose a lot of money finding a good one, then make it all back + more once you find it? I dont know, there must be something I am missing here.

You shouldn't be losing that much money. Cap your daily budgets. If you don't get any conversions move on to a new campaign.

The most important bit of advice I can give is CLEAN YOUR URLs. Don't just bid on everything that Coach's tool spits out. It's way to expensive and you will not convert bidding on domains like Amazon or Wiki or Youtube.

Also, what networks are you using. I'm really only profitable on one network. I'm only active on 3 though. One loses money constantly, one breaks even or gets a slight profit and the other is pretty good at making me money.

One big issue is new guys are dumping 5,000 to 10,000 keywords and urls into campaigns at the start. Don't do that. Go very small to test.

Test in small batches with this. Once you get some profits and auto pilot campaigns under your belt, then you can go bigger and bigger. It's just walking before running.
