i’m testing it from about a week

invested $25, got $42 from referrals plus a bunch of sales

i wonder if other authors are interested in building a common place to advertise items

basic idea is to gain traffic using adwords with each author having his own referral link.

no more details yet, there will be if anyone interested.

Sounds good.

I’ve given up on Adobe Exchange, the referral system from there is exhausted.

I think in general AD could do with some additional traffic.

Let’s say 10 authors, 10 items for author, 50usd investment for each author

that would make a $500 adwords campaign with average cost of 0.11c per click (based on my current setup) = 4.500 click on the landing page

my current average conversion rate is 50%, means 1 of 2 click turns into AD item page visit

landing page would be the same for all adwords ads, we could discuss how to arrange each autorhs items into landing page, each author could also have his own page.

i’m using youtube video for items previews, each video has a link back to landing page

that’s the basic, more details to come.

Hey bitfade,

how much did you pay for click , well if you can not say it, what’s the limit that you have set?, I ask you because I was advertising one of my websites a year ago and it just eat my money real fast.

thanx jayc
