My results are almost the same, $22 on every $1 spent on
I don't have a lot of time to post right this sec, but from my
testing your effectiveness on overture is based on
1. How targeted are your keywords
2. How potent/sticky is your website copy and sales
3. Your profit margin on your product
You can spend $10,000 on Overture, drive hordes
to your site, but if your site doesn't have a powerful
process for conversion...then is it Overture that bombed
or the site?
My first month on Overture my return was $22,340 on
$1,200 spent on advertising. In my opinion Overture
is a gold mine IF...IF....you play with wisdom and
understanding with what you are doing.
