Hey, welcome to part 2 of my Cash in with Bing review. This is a follow-up to my first Cash in with Bing review, where I gave it a 4 out of 5 rating of “good for the price”. I wrote that review after reading through the ebook and concluding that it is a reasonably good guide for only $6.95.
However, I have since attempted to put the ebook into practice and experimented with two Bing Ads campaigns to promote two different ClickBank products. Here I will detail the results of those two campaigns. I thought it was better to create this follow-up as a separate post rather than just updating the original review because this way you get to see the difference in my opinion before and after I tried putting it into action.
Product: Cash in with Bing
Owners: Mark Wightley, Mialei Iske and David Klein
Niche: Pay Per Click Marketing
Price: $6.95 (upgrades are available)
My Verdict: Didn’t work for me
Website: Cash in with Bing
Cash in with Bing Review: the Follow-up
So, here’s what happened…
Well, I followed the ebook’s recommendation to choose a ClickBank product that meets the following criteria:
- Fulfills a need people have
- Gravity over 15
- Unique product name
- Lots of paid ads displaying when I search the product name on Bing
- Paid ads displaying when I search for the related niche term
- Looks like a genuinely good product that does what it says
In the process, I looked at several products, some good and some not so good. Here are the ones I ended up deciding were probably not worth bothering with:
- Diabetes Loophole – the sales video is not the best, plus I found a bad review of it.
- Lean Belly Breakthrough – too many people questioning whether it’s a scam.
- 3 Week Diet – I found a bad review of it.
- Big Diabetes Lie – sounds too controversial, plus I found a bad review of it.
- Heartburn No More – I found a bad review of it.
- My Bikini Belly – no paid ads displayed when I searched for it on Bing.
Here are some products I wasn’t sure about:
- The Kidney Disease Solution
- Truth About Cellulite
- Fibroids Miracle
- Old School New Body
And here are the products I decided were good:
- Unlock Your Hip Flexors – very high gravity, paid ads displaying in Bing, plus I found what looks like a trustworthy positive review of it.
- Eat Stop Eat – high gravity, it’s about intermittent fasting which seems to be legit, there are paid ads on Bing, and I found what looks like a trustworthy positive review of it.
- PuraThrive Liposomal Turmeric Extract – quite high gravity, the website looks good, unique product name, paid ads displayed on Bing, and I found a positive review.
- Fat Burning Fingerprint – unique product name, paid ads displayed on Bing, and I found a positive review.
- Yoga Burn – quite high gravity, paid ads displayed on Bing, looks good.
- 21 Day Sugar Detox – website looks genuine, paid ads displayed on Bing, I found a positive review, and it’s definitely something I could write about from a personal interest standpoint.
Campaign 1: 21 Day Sugar Detox
So I decided on 21 Day Sugar Detox and set up the website http://sugardetox21day.com. Take a look and see what you think. If you think I did anything wrong or could have done anything better, please let me know. This is all just as much a learning process for me as it is for you.
So then in Bing Ads, I targeted 90 keywords including:
- how to give up carbs
- kick sugar cravings
- best sugar detox diet
- detox sugar plan
And here are some examples of my ads:
I ran the ads for a few days, which gave me 97 clicks for £12.44 GBP.
And what were the results from this short campaign?
- 12 subscribers to my email list.
- 0 sales.
- £0.00 earned.
Total cost of this campaign: £24.09 (cost of ads plus website domain name)
Although I wasn’t particularly happy with having just spent £24 to get no money back, I decided to try a second campaign in a totally different niche.
Campaign 2: DIY Home Energy
After looking at several different niches and products, I settled on the green energy niche, and a product called DIY Home Energy. It has a lot of paid ads when you search for the product name in Bing, has a great looking sales page and video, and some great resources for affiliates.
So I set up the website http://homeenergydiy.com. Take a look. All the content is copied from the resources provided in the affiliate tools, and two of the top menu links just go to alternative sales pages via affiliate links. I thought that was rather clever actually.
In my Bing Ads, I targeted a total of 86 different keywords, such as:
- domestic wind turbines
- build your own solar panel
- home wind turbine
- reduce energy bill
- diy solar panel
- build your own solar panels
I created a total of 13 different ads, some of which were:
Again, I ran this for a couple of days, but this time I got 177 clicks for £18.07.
And what were the results from this?
- 5 subscribers to my email list.
- 0 sales.
- £0.00 earned.
Total cost of this campaign: £29.90 (ads and domain).
So, to summarize, this Bing Ads experiment has cost me:
- Cash in with Bing ebook: £5.77
- Campaign 1: £24.09
- Campaign 2: £29.90
- TOTAL COST: £59.76 GBP
Okay, so I could have bought the “done for you” upgrade, but that would have cost me £79.93 GBP ($97 USD), and then I would still have had to spend money on the website domain and ads to see whether it actually works. I wasn’t willing to spend that kind of money.
Also, I am skeptical of any “done for you” system where you just copy their exact campaign. Think about it. If a whole bunch of people all buy the “done for you” upgrade, they will all be running the exact same ads on Bing, which will dramatically increase the competition and therefore the cost of the ads.
I really wanted this to succeed, but I was also prepared in case it didn’t. It was always my intention to write a follow-up review like this so I could document whether it was successful for me or not. This is useful for my readers, and also a good learning experience for me.
Anyway, thanks for reading part 2 of my Cash in with Bing review. I hope you found it helpful, but if you have any comments or questions please post them in the comments section below.
All the best,
