Default Anyone making money from Media Traffic?

I got get this figured out soon. I wanted to ask, is anyone out there making money from media traffic impressions? So far my stats are:

Spend: $63.00
Conversions: $7.00
Net: ($56.00)

Boo hoo!

The one extremely exciting thing I can say is that one of my campaigns I am actually in the black. Spent $4.00 exactly up to right now, with one conversion of $5.00!

I'll keep on trying, looking forward to more advice.

I am, my style is to test very small batches giving each url the most impressions in the shortest period so I can chop off losers very quickly and keep winners.

If you dump a large test batch in there, you will get a ton of traffic, but if you can't sustain that for a long enough period, you will end up with some keywords/urls getting impressions, but not enough to make a decision. You could technically be testing too many for the budget. So cut back on the number in your test batch, (to like 5 maximum versus 500 keywords or urls). Then build your campaign slowly and profitably from day one.

These are the kinds of tips we need . So what is a good determinant for the number of impressions to give a url before dumping it, or keeping it?

I basically stopped 2 campaigns that each lost about $20. The other ones I have running are very focused, but because of that receive little traffic. Right now my thought is to build a shitload of very focused, highly targeted campaigns that make a small amount and add up. I dunno

I am having trouble getting traffic on the urls. I have made some conversions but the traffic is small so it is hard to determine if it will work long term.

Any tips on finding urls that are getting traffic but at the same time are will not drain the budget?

My suggestion to getting high traffic URLs is by going to Google and typing in the top keyword terms, the terms that get the most qualified traffic. That's where your kw research skills come into play.

Get those kw in the results page and dump them into your ppv campaign.

Shame on me for not installing coach's tools yet. So if this is already built it, my bad. I'm getting around to it!

maybe keyword elite will come in handy in finding profitable keywords...

Hi Coach,

I have a question about this statement in this thread:

So cut back on the number in your test batch, (to like 5 maximum versus 500 keywords or urls). Then build your campaign slowly and profitably from day one.
After running the URL list maker tool, I checked several of the returned URLs to see what Alexa rank they had and if it was a fairly good number (such as from 4,000 to 60,000) I'm including that URL in my test for my Media Traffic campaign. I deleted common URLs, such as google, msn, yahoo, but kept ones like xx.about.com/topic/ .

I plan to launch my first MT campaign tomorrow, but was wondering if checking each URL at first is a good thing to do, or is it just a waste of time?

If it's a waste of time, is there a better way to isolate each set of 5 URLs that may increase chances for success?

Sorry for being such a newbie about this.

Aaron

I'm taking the slow and steady approach- I started off with 5-7 URLs for each of my initial campaigns and will replace will keeping replacing the bad ones. Obviously I'm a newbie here, but I'm afraid if I start with a massive amount of URLs I will lose money very quickly since it will be a lot harder to track and maintain
