is there still money to be made?
its been a while since my folly with adwords, is it still possible?

Hiya everyone,
Its been a while since my little, farily unsuccessful play with adwords, in which I make about 10% return on my investment (appalling I know). But now I've got the time again I thought I might give it another go, but before I do... I was wondering...(and heres the big question)

Is it still possible to make a profit using google adwords and accounts from say cj.com or tradedoubler?

Cheers, feels good to have the time to post again!

I made 12k profit last month just from adwords. Anything is possible...

Kevin, thanks,
but did you make that through linking google with adwords? or with your own money making venture?

Buzbe, I am still making money from campaigns I set up over a year ago going from adwords direct to some cj links. It is only a few hundred a month, but takes zero work and I see a 3-400% return on my ad spend. I would imagine if I was not so lazy/busy I could scale this up and make more.

ok cheers. Just I tried before and lost alot.
a few hundred a month is still great money for next to no work! any tips?

It takes a fair amount of work, time, effort, research & testing but you can still do well if you put the time and effort in. Be prepared to lose money before you make it.

Yep. I lost around 50 (roughly $100) before i gave up...

seems the general concenus is work hard and your dreams will come true thou...

which affiliate network is best though?

Independent programs have always worked out better for me. However, what works for one person doesn't work for the next, that why there's enough room for everyone.

That's the toughest thing about aff marketing. It takes work and LOTS of testing! Like it has been said, prepare to lose money before you make some. It's a "game" of testing to see what sells/converts and what doesn't. It takes a fairly high risk level to see it out to the end when you finally do find something that works and makes you good money. We each have different risk levels though, so aff. marketing may be good for some and not so good an experience for others...
