On just about every super affiliate blog there is a post about taking action! So, I want to share my personal experience with this.
Very often I get nervous that I am going to spend our last dime on ppc. Now we have another income, and I have several Internet marketing skills I can easily put to use, I just LOVE PPC. So what do I do when this happens? I don’t launch. I don’t take action. I close campaigns before I can be successful with them. It’s crazy.
But I am not the only person who goes through this by far. It seems like half of all the people I meet are going through, or have. Take for instance my two friends in PPC.
One hasn’t launched anything in weeks but has some of the most desired connections in PPC. He isn’t making money. He knows more about PPC than I could ever imagine, but he isn’t taking action. Hopefully that will change today, as we talked about it this morning.
My other friend is a very nice woman who knows very little about PPC and just happens to be making upto $300 a day with it. She is learing on the job and is doing a fantastic job.
What is the difference? Taking Action!
There is nothing you are going to learn in your stuck state of paralysis of analysis that you can’t over come by just taking action.
So please, where you know a lot about PPC or not, if you are at all interested in making money with PPC, sign up for PPC coach and stop coming up with excuses not to make money. There are tons of strategies you can use, so get started, no one can do it for you. And when you think you have nothing to do but to wait in PPC for some results, launch more campaigns. You can do this, we all can, if we just get out of our own way!
Here are some of the PPC super affiliate blog posts on Taking Action:

The other day when I was looking to do a new campaign, I saw an option on Never Blue Ads to add a pixel for a campaign.
Immediately, I thought: NO WAY! This just can’t be! It sounded too good to be true.
I clicked on the link and was taken to the following page where you can select Google and add your conversion tracking code to the campaign of your choice. This is the first time in any of my affiliate networks I have noticed such easy tracking.
I set up my new campaign (which is not like the one I pictured below in the screenshot) and today logged on to see I had made a conversion. It wasn’t immediate that Google picked it up, but I was pretty excited when it did and it showed me exactly the keyword that the conversion came from.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much time this has saved me. It was much quicker setting up the new campaign and I didn’t have to worry about tracking at all. So I just want to tell you, if you want easy tracking, a good AM (mine is super nice) and lots of good offers to choose from, NeverBlueAds is the way to go.
Whenever I set up a new campaign I go in to Edit Campaign Settings. Part of editing the campaign settings is choosing where you want your ads to show. I don’t remember how long back I started seeing the option for iphone and mobile browsers, but I always uncheck it. I don’t know who does turn it off and who doesn’t or why people do, but I do turn it off.
The reason I turn it off is because the ads are so tiny, and I don’t feel like I am getting the same from my ads that show on mobile browsers. For me it is more difficult to make a purchase on a mobile browser and I don’t want my ads showing for them. On the other hand, am I completely wrong?
I can see these ads maybe working if they are short form CPA offers, like email or zip offers, but not for full blown purchases. Has anyone seen a super affiliate discuss this? If you have, can you share, or at least comment below?
