How to Make Your AdWords Advert a Successful One

I have been experimenting a little bit with a couple of small Adwords campaigns, directed to landing pages in an attempt to generate a little extra money. The first problem that I encountered was although I am getting impressions, people are simply not clicking on the adverts, so its now mission time, to try to generate an advert that not only converts impressions into clicks, but converts the right kind of customers that will actually buy as well!

Nothing is ever easy in this world is it.

I am trying to sell Matrix DVD's to a target market of UK. I am pointing the advert to this landing page, which I whipped up from a template I found online, and filled with my amazon affiliate adverts for the Matrix DVD, the plan being to pay for cheap clicks from people actually wanting to buy the Matrix DVD, convert them and make a few dollars.

My Advert currently is along the lines of this...

Considering The Matrix?
Matrix Books and DVD's
Great Prices and Lots of Products

Its fair to say the advert is pretty crap. So I am going for a rewrite... and came up with this. Previously was getting 0% conversion so will post again in a few days and update if there is any change..

I found out from this article that you can actually add a keyword dynamically into the title so are going to give this a shot. Will let you know..

I would be very lost without my laptop and would find it hard to go back to a desktop simply for simple convenience. Being able to get up and go anywhere and take your laptop with you is fantastic. Also having mobile broadband helps as well, even though it is not always the most reliable! Recently I have had to move around a lot, so its really been a bonus.

The Million Dollar Experiment Summary To Date

The Background

Back in October 2006 I started upon a journey that I hoped would make me One Million Dollars in cold hard cash. It is now 21 Months later and I have NOT made One million dollars yet, however I have made more than ten thousand dollars online and set myself up with a small monthly income whether I work at it or not.

All was well on target until January/February this year when my life literally fell to pieces and I ended up leaving my marriage, going through a very tough time both emotionally and financially and working on my experiment was to be quite honest the last thing on my mind.

Six months later the world is a different place for me, it has not been an easy time, by any stretch of the imagination, but as the saying goes

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"
and I believe I will come out of this whole experience wiser, smarter and happier in the long run, however it's going to take time and I would not wish the last six months on anyone.

Results for January - June 2008 ($NZ)

Jan 200.06
Feb 264.95
Mar 493.58
Apr 487.44
May 764.94
Jun 481.06

That folks is $2692.03 NZ dollars which added to the running total of 8493.68 comes to


Where to from here?

Well one of many things I have learned is that money can be earned online, there have been some high points and low points along the journey and in some ways this is just beginning.

My goals over the next few months are to get right back on track, I have graphs to update and figures to plan so make sure you check back soon for more updates from the Million Dollar Experiment down under...

Happy blogging - and remember if I can make more than ten thousand dollars online so can you, read through my site and follow the journey from the beginning.
