Just as I helped out a ton of people in this community with their Facebook advertising, I am willing to do the same with PPC medium. No setup fee or anything, just God’s honest professional input, from a professional with a proven track record.

@xstortionist

60 out of 75$ will go directly to google, 15 are for general expenses related to the project so i don’t get where such aggressive attitude is coming from since it is obvious to anybody we’re not making any direct,personal profit from the project.

I personally invested countless hours in developing the backend, setting the campaign, integrate it with GA, building scripts to track conversion and estimate sales and you know what ? i did it for free the first time, i’ll do it for free again.

This is a community project: you trust us, you join – you don’t, nobody forces you. Frankly, we have better ways to invest our time than trying to sell shit to other fellow authors.

For one, there is no aggressive attitude. Do you see anywhere I am typing in “ALL CAPS ?”

All I’m asking for is data. Is that so much to ask for? Like what’s the landing pages? What’s the Click-Thru-Rates? What keywords are you bidding on? What types of experiments are you running? Other people have asked about the landing pages as well.

Hit me up, I’m not selling anything, I just want to help you guys out with the PPC campaigns and I know I will be able to increase visibility and provide suggestions to help the cause. I do not want to get in on the action, just help you guys with the campaigns.
Landing page address has been already sent to all the partecipants, project page with tech details will be created on our site, any author who joined will be granted read access to Adwords/GA from where they could get all possible info about the campaign.

But asking for that data before, like we need to persuade you to buy our product, tells me you still missing the point of this project.

So you’re GAQI and only want to help us? Then i have nothing against you handling the whole AD campaign yourself as long as

- all involved authors would agree
- you will do it for free.

As others have said the people who are involved have been around and know each other. It’s simply a test to see if they can make money off the referral system not some pyramid scheme. All involved are willing to throw a few dollars down and see if they can get cheap enough clicks that convert.

I have asked as well for their exact strategy only because I know that’s where the money is and there’s nothing to stop me from doing the same thing on my own on a larger scale in competition :D After spending three years doing PPC on facebook I as well as everyone else in the biz know there’s only one rule: don’t tell people your keyword and ad strategy if you want to continue making money off it. :zipped:

edit: had to :D

Yeah no offense intended xstortionist, as I’m sure you’re a skilled search analyst, but I’ve got a little Adwords experience myself and hearing Fabio talk shop in addition to the fact that he’s just a genius in general :D, I’d rather he managed it as that’s really the reason I joined the project.

Well there you have it, 2 authors from the list would rather stay as we are now. So that’s the way we’ll stay.
