Does $123 Profit for under an hours work sound ok ?
Hey, don’t get too excited. I have some Good and Bad News.
Good News….I screwed up this ezine advertising and should have made more money.
Bad News….I got a great deal on the ads which made them profitable.
More Bad News…. This case study is from a few years back and may not be as effective now.
Let’s get Positive again…Anyone can do this, just get creative and test ! There are many places where you can buy ad slots.
There are many different options if you are looking to advertise your product or affiliate program in an online internet marketing newsletter.You can purchase solo ezine advertising or simply go for sponsor slots or an agreed text slot with 4 or 5 text lines ( normally top, middle and lower slots of the publication).
I love testing different methods to make money online and decided a while back to check out if ezine advertising could provide a return on my investment. Now before I started it was important to pick an ezine that actually respects it’s readers by not bombarding them with solo ads or crappy product recommendations on a daily basis.
You will find a lot of newsletters offering ads for a few bucks but in my past experience these are normally a waste of time as nobody reads the ezine due to the amount of ads.
I will breakdown the process and reveal the name of the newsletter shortly but I just want to quickly summarise the results below.
2 Ad Slots were booked on different dates and I promoted 2 different affiliate marketing products. I only took 10 mins max to write the ad copy ( more on that screw up later ! ) and could have made a lot more money if I had the time to collect opt in subscribers rather than simply direct linking to the product.
The first ad slot generated 5 sales and revenue of $228.33
The second ad slot generated 3 sales and revenue of $74.76
Ok, so the total revenue was $303.09
Now, let’s look at the amount of clicks the ads generated and the conversion rates and also reveal the ad spend for this ezine advertisement . Of course we will also reveal the name of the newsletter and the 2 products that brought in the sales….
