My $75 Mistake

Well it wasn’t that much but it was enough to think about.  I  just started back doing stuff online and looking for new ways to make money online.  I decided to go with a traffic source and i had the usual stuff set up.  The only thing i did not do is make a landing page.  Sure I know most people want to try to make a quick buck the fastest way possible, but i am here to tell you that you NEED landing pages.  some stats

Spent about $70  bucks and made about $24 back.

I generated lots of clicks with the traffic source, however i learned a few things running these offers without landers:

  1. How can you gauge whether people are even clicking your link or just getting there?  You can only do that with landers
  2. You may get a bad referrer and since I am doing lead gen you can most likely not get paid for the lead ( I seen this happen during a test run with getting one of my friends to sign up)
  3. You get a more qualified way to track and optimize.

So there you have it.  For now on I will most likely 100% of the time use landers, whether they are thin landers or fully built webpages.
