Google Adwords & Affiliate Marketing

My live webcast, Cool Talk begins in about one hour (1:30PM EST).

I hope you’ll join me because I’m going to discuss a few things I picked up at the ad-tech conference in New York on Tuesday (I sat down with some Google people and learned a few Adwords and Conversion Tracking tricks).

Here are a few pointers:

  • Make sure you choose Phrase Match or Exact Match when entering keywords
  • Include single and plural variations of your keywords
  • When setting up a campaign, be sure to create Ad Variations (and highlight your competitive advantage)
  • When you find a high-performing keyword, create a NEW campaign just for that keyword and RAISE your daily budget (same applies for ‘content’ ad group keywords)
  • When adding ‘Content’ keywords, don’t include more than 50 keywords (plus Phrase and Exact Match don’t work in Content ads)
  • Adwords Editor: if you use this tool, they recently added a neat feature. It’s a keyword expansion tool and you’ll find it under Keyword Optimizer Tool/Tabs: Keyword Expansion.

Affiliate Marketing Tips

Also, I met with my ‘ace-in-the-hole’ affiliate network manager, Gary Mcnelley from
MarketHealth and found out which hot products I’ll be advertising this quarter (this is the guy who turned me onto the right product mix that helped me earn over $200,000 in two years so I think you’ll want to dabble around here). Anyway, here’s what you do:

  1. signup as an affiliate of MarketHealth
  2. Focus on their niche products (diet stuff is too competitive for pay per click these days). Hint: nail fungus and boils. There I said it. Do what you will.

A reminder: register as an affiliate for Commission River and mark you calendars for a conference call on November 20th at 9PM EST. This is another outstanding affiliate program. (Pssssst….anyone who registers as an affiliate for either of these programs (using the links above) will be invited to join me on a series of private VIP calls where I share what’s working for me. Stay connected.)

Finally, if you’re one of the first 3 callers today, you’ll get to go live with me and get to ask any questions related to your online/web marketing efforts.

One last thing, I was invited to go to Las Vegas next week and spend a day with a guy who’s making (NETTING) between $50,000 and $100,000/day from pay per click advertising. I can’t wait for this pow wow and I’ll be sure to share as much as I’m able when I return ;


P.S. If your website has benefited from being featured on Cool Site
of the Day or if you’ve gained from the information that I’ve shared on or on
Cool Talk, please leave a video testimonial today–once I see the testimonial, I’ll add you to our link page (again, since Cool Site of the Day has a Page Rank of 7 your search engine ranking will likely improve).
