Stop Wasting Money on PPC
Stop Wasting Money on PPC PPC or Pay Per Click is a marketing method on which thousands of internet marketers are wasting good money every month. The problem is they don't know how to use it properly - they spend too much per click and get lookers, not buyers, in return.
It's just not good enough to sign up, write an attention grabbing headline, and then use the limited space available to attract lots of people to your site. You don't want this - YOU DON'T WANT THIS!
What you do want is BUYERS clicking on your link. Anything less is a waste of money, after all you are paying for each time someone, anyone, clicks on your PPC ad. If you are shelling out the dollars, you need to be as certain as you possibly can that you are targeting buyers, not just tire-kickers.
