Hello all my name is Gerry I am new here to the forum I live in Ireland and I feel this is the place for me I am going to try to explain in one go what I want to achieve from mingling here with you guys. Ok I am a plasterer by trade and that is going nowhere in Ireland so for the past 12-16 months I have been dabbling in the online realm I have to say I love it and I dont see myself doing anything else and only in the past month I made my first $5--$10 LOL through promoting CPA offers. I have no expierence with PPC but I will learn what I am trying to achieve is setting up adwords campaign my first will be in the car loans niche geographic England I have joined a group of a couple of lads who run a private forum like this who do this for a living and are very profitable as there is a high payout for these leads this group are a good bunch of lads trying to help each other out but I seem to be lacking a few years behind these guys as I said I am a plasterer so I left school early to pursue that trade anyway these guys dont seem to have the time to cover it all with me and also I am a bit scepticle at how easy they make it sound and it seems to be for them because sometimes I get pretty lost in what they are telling me. Ok here is where the fun starts first I am going to build a micro site for the purpose of capturing leads I will make sure the landing page is of high quality so as to convert better this is where I get lost when I ask these guys how do you get your keywords what keyword tool do ye use and everyone replys you dont use keyword tools as these tools are available to the general public if you use them like everyone else does you wont have an edge they call it a think outside the box approach ok thats the end of PPC is what I am saying I could hire one of you to do all that for me even the ads and multiple ads for a campaign seems daunting but if I got someone else to do it for me then I would never learn myself how to piece the puzzle together sorry about how long this is.

      What advice would you give to me for gathering keywords best practice for gathering the right ones how do they go into different ad groups even if there was a good book you could recommend to me to get a better idea because I dont have the cash flow to learn from mistakes another thing these guys teach is basically burn your capital from the start not holding back to get the data needed to improve your campaign down the road is that a common practice. I am open to any advice at all which would steer me in the right direction and also can you be blunt and honest as to whether you think this is achievable to someone who has not done this for a living I am in know rush to throw my money at a computer monitor and fail I will be like a sponge pestering you guys ok cheers to who ever reads all this

Hi dgerryd.  I think the best advice I can give you in your situation Gerry is to be cautious.  If you're reading the rest of the forum (and it looks like you are), you have seen that some of us here have been doing this a very long time and, without blowing our own trumpets too much, if there was a sure-fire way of getting rich easily, we'd know about it.

 

Adwords - advertising in general for that matter - is complex and has many factors.  Think of it this way:  I don't know the first thing about plastering, so if I came to you and said "I need to learn plastering", how long do you think that would take?  And how long do you think it would be before you were satisfied I was reasonably competent and good enough to work on one of your jobs?  Running a successful Adwords campaign is a skill like any other.  You need to learn all the basics and then you need to learn all the "tricks of the trade" and most of this - I imagine just like plastering - can only really be learned through experience of the job.  You really can't approach Adwords by looking for Keywords (although many people do, then complain when they fail).

 

If you think you've got a good idea, in your situation I'd recommend hiring a professional to do the work on advertising.  Again, think what you'd do if the situations were reversed and I said I was going to have a go at the walls in my house.

 

Do stay here though, this place is a well of knowledge and you'll get great tips and advice here, no matter what course you take.

Hey, I would just start with the Google Adwords keyword tool.   Put in some main keywords that you think are applicable and then let it create some ideas and Ad Groups.  Throw all of the best Ad Groups and keywords that are 1. relevant and 2. have good traffic stats.  Create some Ads (4 or 5 for each ad group) and throw some money at it. Put enough of a bid on there that your Ads will show in the top 2 - 4 positions.  Let that run for a day or two and start making adjustments.  You have to start somewhere and the stats will guide you as to which Ads are good and get clicks, etc.   Be sure to put conversion tracking code on your landing page so you can see what converts.  Conversions make you money, clicks don't so optimize for conversions.  Watch your campaign and go through online tutorials and Youtube videos.  You'll get it and you can get better keyword tools down the road (your buddies should give you some recommendations) that will help you find more "niche" keywords if you're in a crowded market.   It's not rocket science but you need to learn how to optimize your campaign - add negative keywords, phrase match keywords that with a low CTR etc.  That's all for now.  Hope this helped.
