The discount on is almost over. There’s about 5 days left and then the 2 year anniversary is over. It’s been a great 2 years. The forums are a couple ticks away from 100,000 posts now. I remember the first month of running the site still. We had a great group of members, but we only had one technique to show them and very little action on the forums. NOW is a whole other story. The forums are GIGANTIC, we offer OVER 21 methods and techniques and niches and we’re always listening to suggestions.

For example a few members asked for the tracker to be redone and made more user friendly with more features. Well, I listened. I hired a coder to go to work and the beta version of the newest tracking is going into testing mode right now. The tracker already did this:

  • tracks keywords down to the penny for costs and revenue data, showing you what is working and what isn’t
  • allows for very fast campaign creation on all of the big 3 networks
  • turns keywords into unique numbers so networks can’t see your keywords at all
  • allows you to rotate landing pages and offers quickly and easily
  • shows data on epc, roi, profit and loss in table format AND graphically
  • does NOT require any pixels to be placed on any offer page to track stats, works completely independent of pixels
  • allows for easy revenue data upload
  • allows for easy cost data upload for Yahoo and MSN Adcenter
  • has automatic Google Adwords cost data updates nightly

The new features which are being tested include:

  • fully automatic rules based bid management
    • rules are based on:
    • profit or loss
    • roi
    • epc
  • better cost update integration, quicker and faster
  • automatic destination url setup within the adwords account, saving time and setup mistakes

In summary, the newest version of the PPC Coach tracker is bigger, better and more robust then any previous version. It even has it’s own installer package so anyone, (even those with NO script installation expirence), can use it. But the newest tracker is not all. We’ve also added in a new Month 3c technique and are adding a new month 4c technique very very soon. The mini site generator is working beautifully now and will be released shortly too.

So we’ve gone from a tiny site in the first month to a 300 lb gorilla now. We listen to all suggestions, (good or bad) and are the first to admit that we’re not perfect, our site is not perfect, but it’s pretty good for $50 per month, (that’s Canadian funds btw, which is about 45.76 USD at todays exchange rate). We’ve had a ton of success stories too over the years. In fact we have more success stories now then some sites have members!

Anyhow, I’m very proud of PPC Coach and the people who run it are the best in the game. The best thing you can do if you want to learn ppc marketing is sign up right now and get started.

For those that don’t know, I partnered up with a friend, Carl, and we launched It’s a site that teaches/coaches affiliate marketers in several different ways to do media buys. The reason we launched it is there is high demand for the information, but none is freely available. We’re charging $199.99 per month, but if you can’t make that back more in the first month, then you’re not doing the work. I’ve got a couple questions from people about the site, so I thought I’d answer them here on the blog. Let’s dive in:

Question 1:

Do I need a budget of $5,000 to $10,000 to run a media buy?

The answer is no, you don’t. We show you more then just the traditional way to do media buys. We show ways in the first month that can be done for less then $500. How much you spend is a direct relation to how much you will make, but you can never start out playing with the big boys and their huge budgets. I always say, walk before you run and that includes this site’s required budget and activity.

Question 2:

Why should I listen to you and Carl, what do you guys know about it?

Rest assured we know plenty. I’ve been doing smaller scale buys for years and Carl is producing very large numbers daily now. Between his large production and my coaching experience, it’s a winning combination. Yes you can try to do it on your own, that is certainly an option, but for the price, you’d be silly to take that route. People who are doing big numbers don’t like giving away all their secrets. We don’t care about that. We know that there is plenty of room for everyone, so the more the merrier as far as we’re concerned.

Question 3:

Don’t you run FOUR coaching sites now? Isn’t that pushing it?

Yes I do run 4 coaching sites now and if I feel like it, I’ll open a 5th too. I have great partners and great moderators on every site I run or am in a partnership in. The “coaching empire” is always on the lookout for new and exciting ways to do affiliate marketing and I can’t see myself stopping at four. In fact, if anyone has a traffic source that nobody else is using and you want to teach it to the world, let’s partner up. I’ve got the best training system in the world, with my automatic drip feed method, which I created over 2 years ago. I use this method so that members do not get information overload or feel like there’s just too much information, (a common complaint on my PPC Coach site). There is a ton of information and we do our best to organize it to make it as easy to understand as possible.

Question 4:

What do you make of the competing sites cropping up lately, it used to be just you and Wealthy Affiliate?

I love competition. I love it for many reasons, but the main one is it makes the end users quality of coaching and experience better. I have no problem competing with any site out there. My sites have stood the test of time. Some competitors have come and gone over the years for my PPC Coach site, but it’s still thriving. I get emails all the time about new sites attempting to bash me or my sites, that’s ok with me. You can’t please everyone not matter how hard you try. I use any negative comments I hear or read about my sites and make sure I fix the issue, if there really is one. Usually it’s some bash marketing tactic that they’re using. Not my cup of tea but to each his own I suppose.

One thing I’ll never do is bash any competitor. It’s not my style. I learned that lesson when 2 of the moderators on one of my sites left and created a site to compete with mine. At first I was angry and reacted stupidly because I felt they were sneaking around behind my back and then poaching my members. Then I realized that was silly. There’s no need to say negative things about others or make up lies about them in order to further your own business, it’s just not a viable way to react or be long term. The good part about being a human is we can learn from our mistakes. I learned from mine and now I totally embrace competition as it’s good for everyone. We don’t want another Google on our hands in any industry!

Anyhow, that’s all I’ve got for today, if you have a question email me, ppccoach At gmail Dot Com, I’ll be happy to try to answer them in a future post.

After several weeks of preparation, it”s launched.  My newest baby is  It’s designed to help affiliate marketers learn how to promote CPA and other offers without paying for traffic.  I’m not the best copywriter in the world, so we outsourced some to test the conversion rate.  Have a look at how the site is described:

New to Affiliate Marketing?

Don’t let your newness to the online marketplace overwhelm you.

The worst thing you can do is fear failure – especially when it doesn’t cost much to try.

Our goal through Affiliate Free Traffic Coach for Affiliate Marketers is to teach you the finer arts of making money online through a form of free marketing.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

As an affiliate marketer, you’ll promote and sell other people’s products and services. When you make a sale or conversion through your affiliate website, you’ll receive some form of commission for each one.  By focusing on free traffic sources, you’ll be able to spend a minimal amount to develop your online business, seeing immediate profit as the sales add up. This simply isn’t true for offers you might have seen involving pay-per-click, cost-per-view or media buys.

The Benefits of Free Traffic

If you’re considering breaking into the huge and growing online marketplace, it makes sense spend as little as possible in the process. The bulk of online costs are advertising dollars, and any number of successes has shown you can make money online by spending almost none. Using free traffic, you’ll be sending people to your newly formed websites without paying for the privilege. When these visitors click or buy on your site, you stand to make a profit – without spending a dime.
