Default Profit! :-)

If I posted how much I made in the headline, no one would read the post hehe :-)

I had my first $1/day.

Well, slighly different. I have started my first campaign 12 days ago, and I have made an overall profit of exactly 12 bucks in that period of time - what a coincidence. I am pretty happy about this, cause I thought I would require much more money to get even close to the breaking even. But basically I got exactly 40 learning campaigns for free (or 12 bucks +).

I spent $185 on TrafficVance and made $197 back. As said, 40 camps, fairly unoptimized, which is the next step. Would love to post a few tips, but at $1/Day I would feel very silly :-)

Instead, I want to thank Coach for the coaching, all active CPV-coach members, and an extra special thanks to Aaron/particles who has been doing a superb job as a moderator! You helped me a lot!

Nice job, Vincent!

You're on the way... and you're the one who made it work.

Little update:

I peaked at $43/ Day about 1 week after that (i.e. after about less than 3 weeks in CPV). However, after that I burned really quite some cash in trying to scale (unsuccessfully).

I think I did the mistake of not launching too many campaigns (well I did well over 100, but that is not a lot in CPV, I think) instead I was trying to scale the few campaigns that worked, but also did not optimize too much on the others (i.e. cutting back on losses, etc.).

I think the CPV thing is a lot about creating the right balance. So for me, I will try to do more >10 campaigns per day days, have a good balance of cutting losers and not trying to scale the crap out of converting campaigns but try to do it more carefully (i.e. not let it eat up too much of the profits by testing new urls) Unless, somebody has a different view especially on the scaling bit, which I am struggling with. I feel most of the campaigns that work only have very few urls that work. Not like most that experience like a handfull or even 2 digits,I am mostly stuck wtih 1-2. Maybe I am not looking at the right places, or maybe I just go those camps that happen to have just few urls that are working.

What else. That's about it. I do see a lot of potential here although I have my doubts here and then, but I guess that is normal in business. There isn't a guaranteed paycheck at the end of the day - i have been used to that for a couple of years now. Still, this can be hard, but I hope persistence will pay off!
