UPDATE 14th March 2017: I have since tried putting this method into practice and have written a follow-up review: Cash in with Bing Review, Part 2: Did it Work? My opinion of Cash in with Bing has changed but I wanted to keep the review below so there was a record of what I thought of it before and after actually trying to make it work.
Welcome to my Cash in with Bing Review. Here I take a look at this ebook guide which shows you how to make affiliate commissions by using Bing Ads to drive targeted traffic to specially designed webpages. Overall, I think this is a great guide for the low price, and could be just what some affiliate marketers need to give their affiliate commissions a good boost.

My Cash in with Bing Review
Why I Decided to Try This
I like pay per click marketing, and I specifically like Bing Ads. I like PPC in general because it’s the most targeted paid website traffic you can get. It’s like SEO but you’re paying to jump the queue.
And I like the simple logic of it. You pay to show a simple advert to people when they type in specific search terms, and when they click the advert they get shown your relevant webpage. What could be more targeted than that?
I particularly like Bing Ads because they seem to be less strict with their rules than Google Adwords, and the costs per click tend to be lower. So when I saw this guide called Cash in with Bing, which claims to show you how to easily make money with Bing Ads, I got very excited. So let’s take a look…
First, the Sales Page
Right at the top is this dramatic headline which nobody could fail to notice:
Well, I definitely like the sound of that! Earning $118 per day while also building a list of email subscribers? That would suit me just fine, thanks.
Below that there is a video that actually shows him going into his Clickbank account and looking at the earnings for one day, 5th February 2017 to be precise. Sure enough, the total earnings for that day are indeed $118.98.
Then he shows the results for the same day on another affiliate network called JVZoo. On that same day, he earned another $273 on JVZoo. Then he shows earnings of $104.98 and $123.51 on two other affiliate networks. So he must have had several campaigns running at the same time across several affiliate networks.
HOWEVER, one thing to be aware of at this point is that this money is not PROFIT. These are the affiliate commissions he has earned on that day, but don’t forget he has done this by advertising on Bing Ads, which COSTS MONEY. So at this point we don’t know what he has spent on those adverts.

How Much Does Cash in with Bing Cost?
And it even comes with a full 30-day money-back guarantee!
But one thing that irritates me about these types of sales pages is the countdown timers they have:
This tells me that the price is going to rise in less than 9 minutes, but that’s just not true. I’ve been to this sales page several times in the past few days and the price has remained at $6.95 throughout. So this is just a sneaky sales tactic to try to get you to hurry up and decide to buy it before it’s too late.
But while I was busy writing this, the timer actually did reach zero:
But look, the price is still $6.95!
I even clicked the button to buy it and it took me through to the checkout page, with the price still at $6.95:
So, he lied there, but I’m actually glad because I want to try it, and it will still only cost me $6.95.
This is what is known as an OTO (One Time Offer) or Upsell. And these OTOs are usually presented in such a way that you think you will never see them again. But I’m not quite sure whether I want to upgrade just yet, so I have saved the URL of that page to possibly come back to it later.
I must admit, getting the course on video plus the 20 “done for you” PPC ads does seem like too good an offer to turn down, but first I want to see what the $6.95 main course is like. If that is enough for me to get started, I don’t need to buy the upgrade.
Besides, when I logged into my WarriorPlus account (the affiliate network that sells this course), I saw a button called “Access Affiliate Bonus”. When I clicked on this, I was taken to a page on a completely different website, which contained a bunch of really great bonuses:
So at the moment there is already plenty for me to take in, and I’m in danger of getting a little overwhelmed if I’m not careful. So now I’m going to take a look at the main course…
But when I click the “No Thanks” link at the bottom, I get taken to another page, this time for a “Downsell”:
So for $12 I can get the video training plus a huge load of email swipe files. Again, I have saved the URL of the page and maybe I will come back to this later.
So I click the “No Thanks” link again…
But here I get sent to yet another offer:
For a further $97, I can get:
Now, $97 is a lot of money to spend, especially considering I am going to also be spending money on Bing Ads. So for the moment I am going to skip this offer, but I have saved the URL just in case I change my mind.
Is Cash in with Bing Any Good?
I took a look through each of the bits of the main $6.95 product, and here’s what I found.
The Blueprint eBook
The book is 42 pages long and is quite thorough. The topics covered in the Blueprint are:
- Select a niche
- Select a product to promote
- Find key phrases
- Setup domain and links
- Setup list and optin form
- Build your special info page
- Create follow-up emails
- Create Bing Ads
- Scale up your business
Complete beginners may find it all a lot to take in, so this is why the upgrades might be a good idea to give you a head start.
But internet marketers who are already somewhat familiar with the concepts mentioned may be able to succeed just by following the instructions in this guide. Even if you don’t follow it all strictly to the letter, the concepts and information revealed here are likely to point you in the right direction.
Even so, if you are a complete beginner who just buys the $6.95 main guide, there is still a reasonably good chance you can succeed with it. You could start by trying the toenail fungus niche he mentions in the book, and copy the various ads he gives as examples. However, you may struggle with writing the webpage content if you are not already familiar with writing that type of thing.
The Audio Files
- Audio #1 – Overview, Niche Selection, Product Selection
- Audio #2 – Find Key Phrase & Final Product Selection
- Audio #3 – List Setup, Links & Special Page
- Audio #4 – Bing Ads, Follow-ups and Scaling
These seems to be audio versions of the videos that are available in the upgrade. He is talking through the process as he does things on his computer, and in the videos you would be able to see what he is doing, but it is a bit more difficult with the audio because you can’t see what he is referring to.
However, the ebook did contain screenshots, so I found that listening to the audio after having read the book helped the information sink into my brain.
I like the checklist. I tend to work in a very linear, step-by-step way, so having the checklist to refer to is excellent for me. It is arranged in the same order as the main blueprint ebook, with the same chapters. However, the checklist is only 12 pages long rather than 42 pages long. This is because it consists entirely of actionable tasks relating to each chapter.
This is awesome because once you have read the blueprint and understood it, you can use the checklist to tick off the tasks as you go through the process yourself, which means you won’t miss anything out.
Should You Buy Cash in with Bing?
Considering the price is only $6.95, you get some very useful information here. If you have already done some internet marketing but are looking to break into Pay Per Click marketing, this could give you a good blueprint to follow.
However, complete beginners will probably need to pay for the upgrades. If you want a head start with creating the ads, buying the $17 upgrade will get you 20 “done for you” ads ready for you to use. For total beginners who want it to be made as easy as possible, you will probably need to get the $97 upgrade which gives you a complete “done for you” system.
I only bought the $6.95 main guide, not any of the upgrades, so I cannot say for sure what they are like.
But You’re Safe with the 30 Day Money Back Guarantee
This is the thing. This product comes with a full 30 day refund promise, so you actually have nothing to lose by trying it out. If you buy it and you decide afterwards that you don’t like it, you just get a refund. In that situation, you would email the seller first, but my advice it to pay using PayPal just in case. That way, if you have trouble getting a refund, you can always get PayPal to help you out.
