Time to start a new demo account I guess.
A while back google mailed me a $35 adwords voucher for some reason. I didn't know what to use it for so I googled around and ended up stumbling upon affiliate marketing. In case you haven't heard of affiliate marketing, basically it's where you try to promote a product and every sale you get nets you a commissions, all of this done online.
Reading about it on various sites and forums this seems simple enough. You basically:
1. Find a suitable product to advertise.
2. Create an ad campaign on adwords with your affiliate link.
Seems simple enough right? I thought so too.
To be fair the ad campaign is still running but I don't think the result will change.
I also didn't spent any money aside for the $10 activation fee for the adwords account.
But I might've been better off selling the voucher instead.
I didn't use adsense for this blog. I was planning to use adsense but then I remembered I have a dormant bidvertiser account so I decided to use it instead.
The fact that they payout via paypal and have a low minimum payout ($10) is a plus too.
But that might've been a mistake.
As you can see, it's not performing well. Hell it's not performing at all.
Oh well I'll let it run for a few more days before I'll decide whether to replace it or not.
Damn making money on the net is hard.
