I am a little disappointed to see the lack of interest in the adCenter threads. I am wondering if this is because of lack of experience with it, or if some have had bad experiences. I have been working with MSFT and adCenter to assist anyone who would like to start using adCenter, but has questions or concerns. Feel free to PM or respond to this thread, and I will be happy to assist you in any way I can. Both good and bad experiences with this program are welcome.
For those not familiar with adCenter, it is Microsoft's pay per click program, similar to Google adwords or Yahoo Search Marketing. While it has been true that it may not bring you the volume of traffic that these other programs can, but we have found consistently that adCenter brings more targeted traffic, and has lead to a better conversion rate. With adCenters cost per click running MUCH lower in many areas, this means that you can have more sales with less money spent on advertising!
I also have a $75 coupon for adCenter in my signature that anyone is free to use. Unlike some who choose to spam forums with their free credit links and run away, I will gladly stay around to answer any questions or help out however I can. If I don't know the answer right away, I will ask my MSFT contacts and get your answer.
Right now, this offer is open new account holders in the US, and there is a $5.00 charge to activate the account. After setting up your new account and making the payment, your $75 credit should show up in your account within a couple of days (most times, it is there in a few hours).
Thanks for your time!
