    After a lot of research on affiliate marketing I've decided to take action and start this journey to keep focused as I try to apply what I've read.

    Day 1:
    Traffic to begin with: Bing
    Affiliate platform: Clickbank

    Signed up with a tracker
    Selected 2 products in the same niche.

    Currently working on Keyword research - arrange the keywords into Single Keyword Ad Groups(SkaGs) - I've read this helps in having relevant and targeted ads

    I will be using the bemob tracker, It's my first time with Bing.

    Thanks.

    Day 2:
    - Keyword research complete.
    - Set up Bing account and loaded it with some funds just to ensure my debit card is working
    - Downloaded and installed BingAds editor for easier management of campaign.
    - Setting up Affiliate network(Clickbank), Traffic Source(Bing) , Offer (from clickbank), Tracking Domain on the tracker. Took a while to figure out which parameters to put where but in the end I was able to set up everything well.

    - Opened and account with Get-response to capture leads

    Bought 2 domains : 1 for tracking and 1 for hosting the landing page.

    Next plan of action:
    - set up lander and relevant content
    - Set up campaign on Bing ad account

    I was not able to find a way to pass the cost parameter from bing to tracker...if there is a way someone pls share with me. Otherwise I intend to do it manually when I start running the campaign

    Day 4 & 5
    - I was able to create ads - 3 different ads for each adgroup
    - Tested the tracking to see it was working.
    - I completed setting up the campaign and launched it.

    Feeling great reaching here so far... those technical tracking and lander set ups seemed intimidating, but with YouTube and some online tutorials I managed to set up the campaign.

    Budget $20/day

    I'm going to leave it to run for about 3 days to get some data. I'll be checking negative keywords and adding them regularly.

    I've started receiving visits and clicks. no conversion yet. I can't wait to see my first conversion:)

    Day 6:
    I've let the campaign to run for 3 days without any adjustments and I'm glad to say that I got one sale+upsell :)
    $38.04

    Breakdown for the 3 days I've been running the campaign, I've set my max cpc to be $1
    Sunday : Spent: $21.54 Clicks: 18 Conversions(amount): 0($0) Average CPC: 1.20
    [​IMG]


    Monday : Spent: $23.12 Clicks: 6 Conversions(amount): 0($0) Average CPC: 3.85 (High Cpc happened because I set desktop device bid adjustment to 900%)
    [​IMG]


    Tuesday : Spent: $21.34 Clicks: 28 Conversions(amount):1 (38.04) Average CPC: 0.76

    I guess I will have to sync all the time zone the one that clickbank uses.
    Clickbank uses Pacific time
    bemob Tracker uses default UTC
    Bing uses my country timezone .
    this really caused a lot of confusion in determining when the conversion came but I've figured it now.

    Another thing I saw that Bing offers Desktop/Smartphone/Tablet options. For now I will concentrate on Desktop

    A mistake I made when selecting Desktop bid adjustment I made it 900% I thought it would result in me getting alot of desktop traffic but it resulted in me paying CPC of $3.85 as seen above. So guys if you want desktop traffic alone just set
    Smartphone = - 100%
    Tablet = - 100%
    leave Desktop without any bid adjustment

    Another thing I don't know why Clickbank is not firing back conversions. I had to upload the conversion manually to my tracker. if there are people familiar with this pls share.

    Total Spent on Campaign: $66
    Total Revenue: $38.04
    Profit: - $27.96
    ROI: -42.36%

    Next:
    Now that I have accomplished my goal of getting a conversion, I will let the campaign run one more day then I will start working on ROI.

    Happy week guys!

    Thanks, I have been checking it out and it has some great tips for those doing bing

    Day 7:
    I've not had any other conversions but still running the campaign.
    Today I've paused non performing adgroups and ads.

    Next step is to wait and see the results.
    Happy thanks giving to all in the US.

    Day 8:
    After removing non performing adgroups, I'm still getting good visits and clicks to my lander but no conversions.
    The next thing I will work on is coming up with another lander and see if I will get better results.

    I thought this would be a smooth ride traffic > lander > offer = $$$
    but seems I will have to really do some testing to see what the audience I'm targeting wants.

    It's never that easy. Last time I tried that path - I failed. Bing became too expensive for me to be that simple. In one year period, my bid in winning campaign went from 0.25 to 0.75. It was just crazy expensive to continue.

    At this point, I thinking about creating a list first. I don't have any other solution...

    But USA traffic converts best. And it is the biggest market on Bing. Bing doesn't have that big traffic volume to only target NZ, UK, or AU. If you don't have USA market, there is no way you can find enough traffic to make $100-500 per day...
