My first payed advertising campaign will bi tested from today. I have never tried this before, but I now will take it on and try a Facebook campaign. Lets se how it goes. I hope it at least brings in some traffic to my site and ultimately gives some conversions.
You never know until you have tried, and if it does not work I have to do it better next time. It is not completely in yet. They have to accept it first, and I have heard that it can be problems some times to get certain things accepted, so we will e what they say.
If you want to have traffic to your site you should do advertising for it, so I was thinking that it is a good idea to start now to get some traffic going to my site and maybe make someone join at least my mailing list.
They did not accept my ad. It said that they do not accept ads that is connected to sites that support Earn Money Fast and MLM stuff. What I know Wealthy Affiliate neither is a Earn Money Fast or a MLM company. I don’t understand how they can get it to that. Probably they only assume something like that without investigating it and just don’t want to deal with it.
Well I don’t care. There are other places to put out ads on that isn’t so hopeless to deal with. I hope I get some traffic from the place I decide to go to next. It will probably give a boost to the traffic if I got this done in a good way, and I will see if I can get some leads and conversions.
The bad thing about this is that I have one less advertising platform to use unless I maybe can get the advert to be more specific about what this business is about in those few words you have in the advert.
I tried Google Ads also and that worked and that worked. I have had 19 kicks on my advert already after one day. Not so impressive because I have had 324 views of the advert, but it is at least something to start of with. Now in the evening when I look again I actually have two email subscribers that is now added to my MailChimp mailing list.
That awesome. Something actually starting to happen with my site. Someone is going in and reading my blog posts. I like it very much. The mailing list is actually the backbone of your whole business. If you have a mailing list you can continue to send out nice offers and updates of your blog to your subscribers.
As they say in Legendary Marketer. If you don’t have an email list, you don’t have a business. And when you have no business there is not going to be any money,
So if you want good business. Start building you list as soon as possible .
What is the next goal
So my next goal. Next goal is of cause to make referrals to my site. Then I probably have to make more ads to build more traffic to the site. More ads cost more money, and I have to think about the spending more money part because I don’t have a lot of those for the moment.
But now when Wealthy Affiliate maybe start bringing in some money there is some to spend on ads, so I’m not too worried about that. The way I se it is that if a business is braking even after the first six months in business it has been a good half year. You can’t expect a business to make plus figures after the first month.
There is always a startup time in a company, and you are the one that is in charge of how long it is. If you work hard and never give up, it will pay you back in the future.
My first referrals
I just went in to my Wealthy Affiliate page and saw that I have three referrals to the program. That is thanks to the ad I put out two days ago. That’s not much, but you have to think about that I have just started with this adventure, and it is the first ad that I have made and put out there, and it is obviously working.
It is hard to be a marketer. You have to work for your referrals every day. Write posts, looking at statistics, writing to new affiliates that you have referred, make ads, coming up with new headlines. It is easily come up to 4-5 hours a day. Especially if you are a member of more than one affiliate marketing site.
It is also important to educate your self in affiliate marketing. Almost every day I look in to new videos and educational information about how to do, what to write, how to write, where to put ads, how to do this and that. It is a constant work in progress.
This shows that paid ads is converting traffic and sales, if you do them right. I have some learning to do to get it optimized, but I will certainly run paid ads again soon. Because I have not got any income yet, I will not run them continuously, but every other week from now for 50$ I can handle for sure.
The main goal for my first paid ad was to test it out and get a starting point that I can refine later on. You always have to improve on stuff, and if I improve from this it is going to be awesome. This ad was not meant to be anything other than se if I get something out of it, and it actually worked, so I’m really glad for that. Now its only to continue on and see if it can get any better from here forwards.
You have to spend money to earn money as I have said in some earlier blogs, and that is actually true.
