Default What would others consider this conversion to be?

I know coach says the only stupid question is the one not asked so here it goes. I had a conversion the other day for an offer I've been running for about a week and a half. Ad spend is was about $3.50 at the time of conversion and payout is $15. I'm wondering is this is a fluke or if others would immediately consider this a "winner" and begin to scale this campaign? Haven't had another conversion yet but I'm slowly getting traffic to this particular url and have many more views before I hit the breakeven mark. Any suggestions. Not my first conversion but by far the most significant to date.

What is the total ad spend so far? Ad spend at time of the conversion is less relevant than the current ad spend. That said, at the time of conversion where you had $15 revenue with a $3.50 adspend, I would definitely be looking to scale further. My best campaigns are regularly making $15+ on a minute ad spend, though it's hard to find ways to scale them

I've since made another conversion yesterday with this particular url. Total adspend on this url is $9.19 and total conversion amount is $30.00.

What have others done? I'm tempted to deactivate all other campaigns and just work on ways to scale this. My thoughts are I can find out who are these people that frequent this particular url vs. another that might be somewhat but not completely similar. I could throw more urls at it and see what happens. I've tried adding other variations and I'm not getting much more traffic using the permutator. I guess I just need to have faith that this is not just a fluke. Thinking back to what coach said, he talked about being in one vertical and scaling this until you hit $100/day. Is this what others have done? Doing it this way makes more sense to me than trying countless niches. This way I can really get into the niche and potentially find more profitable urls. Just thought I'd post my thoughts. Anyway, any insight into how others have gotten the ball rolling after having a couple profitable conversions...

If you have something that is working, don't touch it. Let it make it's money, move onto the next while leaving that one alone.

Once you've built up 10 campaigns making money, then go back in and scale/wreck it. I say scale/wreck it because odds are 50/50 that one or the other will happen.

I know we get mixed messages as marketers in going big and small stuff "not being worth my time". But the guys saying that are big in one niche and basically got lucky. So you can try your luck, or build a business.

Up to you.
