AdsRow Review – PPC Advertising Scam Network

Most of you probably have never heard of AdsRow, I hadn’t either until I saw one of their ads on Google promoting their PPC advertising platform. I clicked on it and decided to port a few of my campaigns over to see how it would do. In my entire experience online with traffic sources, this one takes the cake for being the worst! I spent around 100 dollars in traffic, until I decided to pull the plug and call it quits with them. Tested 3-4 different campaigns all with similar results, wait, results? I mean NO CONVERSIONS at all. And please do note that I ported my already profitable campaigns with Adwords and MSN over to them, so they are already optimized and I should be able to get at least a few conversions, maybe not even profitable yet since it is a different type of traffic, but honestly I did not get one single one!

Easy PPV Profits Review – A PPV Marketer’s Dream!

Most people fail at PPV marketing for several reasons. A few from the top of my head are not testing out enough urls, not testing out different offers with your landing pages, and most importantly of all, having a poorly designed, unattractive landing page for your offers. PPV is a platform of marketing where you have to engage the user to your advertisement and get them to take action.

Unlike PPC marketing, users aren’t interested in whatever you are trying to sell to them, since your actually interrupting the user, you need eye catching landing pages to rake in the big bucks! Most people think that direct linking works, but little do they know that most of the affiliates who take that extra step and market to a particular niche or demographic are getting much higher ROI’s and spending less money. The money is in the details, and landing pages are essential to PPV. So if your no Photoshop expert, nor a javascript programmer, I have just the solution for you today!

The Solution: Easy PPV Profits

Easy PPV Profits has done all the hard work for you! You will receive 30 High Quality PPV landing pages designed professionally for the most profitable niches currently in PPV! Now what does high quality mean? Well lets break it down for you so you know exactly what you can expect from each landing page that you will be receiving.

Adwords Account Suspended Due To My Blog?

My Adwords account got suspended today because of my blog. Yep you heard that right. Apparently its a “get rich quick” site. I’m flattered Google, thank you so much! πŸ™‚ Anyways, they didn’t suspend all of my Adwords accounts, and as many of you probably are aware, you are more than able to make another Adwords account with your same information, for some reason, they just feel like suspending your older accounts for no good reason like this one.

Thank You Adwords!

Anyhow, read the email that I got from them about my blog, and honestly I have like privacy policy pages and don’t really try to sell that much affiliate stuff on it πŸ˜‰

Ridiculous I know, but oh well its not like they are stopping me from creating or using my other Adwords account I just found it quite amusing that my blog was labeled as get rich quick! ( So you know what that means right? If Google thinks people can get rich quick with my blog, you better subscribe and start reading it! πŸ˜‰

Google Page Rank Update January 2011

Looks like Googles new page rank update has finally gone through for this year! Now originally my blog was a page rank of 0, but finally its not 0 anymore and I’m extremely happy about it. Sure we all know that page rank doesn’t play that big of a role anymore in search indexing and SERP rankings, but it is valuable when you are selling link spots or plan on selling your blog or site eventually.

Check Your Page Rank!

Anyways, wanted to make this post short and sweet and just let my readers know to check their websites to see if they increased their page rank at all, and if you have, let me know what it is changed to know as I’m curious to see how other blogs did. Mine jumped 2 page ranks so I was pretty happy about that, but I think it only was changed for my home page, not sure if my older posts actually got any page rank at all.

Affiliate Partners And Your Product

Many marketers start the product launch process without thinking about the resources they are going to give their launch partners, i.e. the affiliates and JV partners. These people, particularly, the JV partners, are busy people who haven’t got time to sit down and create resources to market your product. They are going to want you to provide this.

If you are smart, you will do this. The easier you can make it for your partners to promote your product, the more chance you have of them promoting it. We have discussed the pre-launch email sequence. This is something you can create and allow the launch partners to send out to their lists. As there may be a high degree of cross over between this list (how many of the same launch offers do you receive?) you may want to make the emails unique.
