[Case Study] – My Results Promoting Four Percent Group

In this Four Percent Group Case Study I've put my own money to the test in running a paid traffic campaign to the Four Percent affiliate system.

The purpose of this case study is to be completely transparent about the Four Percent System, and to help people understand what it takes (as a beginner) to get your very first affiliate sales online (as these were my very first results online).

So as an overview, the results of this case study are;

The Results Of This Case Study

  • TOTAL AD SPEND:   $563.89 (Bing PPC) + $222.22 (Google PPC) = $786.11
  • TOTAL CLICKS:   456 (Bing) + 230 (Google) = 686 clicks
  • DATE RANGE:   11th Feb – 30th April  |  (approx. 2 months period)
  • SALES:   $2,379.03 in affiliate commissions
  • FINAL RESULTS:   $2,379.03 commissions – $786.11 ad spend = $1,592.92 profit over 2 months

Hopefully after reading this article you may have a better understanding and expectation of what it takes to get started with affiliate marketing, to run traffic, run affiliate campaigns, and what it takes to promote digital products online…

… and that it takes hard work, but that the results are there if you take it seriously and treat it like a real business.

GOT QUESTIONS? HIT ME UP ON FACEBOOK

Affiliate Disclaimer:   Her guys it's Steve here. I'm the author of this article and yes I'm actually an active Four Percent Member. Which means I stand to earn an affiliate commission from links on this Blog Post.

While I joined Four Percent because I wanted to learn affiliate marketing and feel it delivers great value, it's not necessarily for everyone.

I wrote this post so that you can get more of an idea of what types of things you would be expected to do to promote digital products as an affiliate… so that you have the right expectation up front, and can make an informed decision whether it's right for you.

If you have any questions about the Four Percent Affiliate Program, feel free to reach out to me directly on Facebook here.

Can you Actually Get Results With Four Percent Group?

It's important to understand that being able to earn income online with a affiliate marketing… like any business, is never guaranteed simply because you purchase a course.

It depends on many different things, including;

  1. How much action you take
  2. How well you can develop the ‘skill' of being a good marketer
  3. Whether you will persist with it… for at least 60-90 days and give it a real shot
  4. Your leadership abilities… in being able to self direct your own progress, and make decisions based on what you need to learn, apply and test out, and which strategies you will focus on (i.e. youtube, facebook, free traffic, paid ads etc.)
  5. Whether you're prepared to practice and develop skills over time… skills including wiring good ad copy, creating effective ads, running campaigns, creating good content and driving web traffic, teaching others – (and not just giving up when the first thing you try doesn't work).

My Personal Results Promoting FourPercent | (CASE STUDY)

So I decided to run a test campaign, by send some traffic directly to the Four Percent group myself, and put my own money on the line.

I used Search PPC Ads (Pay per Click).

I have tried this strategy with many different programs before (Empower Network, MOBE, Digital Altitude, Online Sales Pro, Lead System Pro…) however Four Percent is the first program I was actually able to get results with.

Here's What I Did...

The results I got was from initially spending about $563.89 on BING ADS sending cold traffic directly to the FourPercent System (no bridge page or pre-frame content… I had an email follow-up set up in GetResponse… but only 1% of people opened them.)

I let these ads run from Mid Feb – End of April with a daily budget of roughly $10/day.

Then I created one piece of content documenting my results in a blog post, and I sent my last $222 worth of ads sending traffic to this content (as a bridge page) in the last half of April.

So the ‘work‘ that I actually did was;

Basically I just applied what I learned from the Four Percent steps, but I did take it seriously and treated it like a real business.

I was prepared to spend money on paid ads, to test different ads & keyword combinations, and I was prepared that not every one of my campaigns would be successful.

My Ads Campaign - $563.89 spent

From the image above you can see that I had spent $563.89 on paid ads on this campaign with Bing (and after this I also ran some ads from Google).

This was over about a 2.5 month period (I try to budget $250/mo for paid ads… some months I can afford a bit more, other months I might just have to do free traffic methods).

Here's What My Traffic Strategy Looked Like...

Four Percent Group Affiliate Campaign 01 2

Image:    >>  Phase 02 – Google PPC Ads to Bridge Content to Affiliate Offer

Four Percent Group Affiliate Campaign 02 2 1

The Final Results Were...

  • TOTAL AD SPEND:   $563.89 (Bing PPC) + $222.22 (Google PPC) = $786.11
  • TOTAL CLICKS:   456 (Bing) + 230 (Google) = 686 clicks
  • DATE RANGE:   11th Feb – 30th April  |  (approx. 2 months period)
  • SALES:   $2,379.03 in affiliate commissions
  • FINAL RESULTS:   $2,379.03 commissions – $786.11 ad spend = $1,592.92 profit over 2 months

The affiliate commission can be seen from the image below, from my Clickbank account (at the time Four Percent was using ClickBank as their main payment processor. They are not any more).

Contributing Factors to My Success

1 – I have had somewhat experience writing Ads and running traffic. Although I have never made any sales online before, I had practiced writing ads before.

2 – Getting targeted traffic… even simply writing effective ads is a skill set you have to learn and develop over time. The only way to get good, is to practice… and to realize you may have to test a few different things out before you find something that works for you.

3 – I spent a lot of time in different programs leading up to this, testing and practicing different things. Although Four Percent has helped me make my first commissions online… I did have some basic knowledge of how internet marketing worked before I started with them. I still however work a full time job and do internet marketing part time on the side.

Conclusion & Points to Note

1 – I created many campaigns before this one that never worked:    It's important to know that I did not just join Four Percent, run my first ad and campaign… and make $1,500 profit. I spent a lot of time picking one traffic strategy (PPC), studying it, watching tutorial videos and practicing running campaigns that never got any sales.

It's just part of marketing.

2 – One single campaign will not run 100% well forever:    As well as this campaign did… it did not keep producing the same result forever. If it did… I would just let it rip, keep the ads running, spend more money and surely be a rich millionaire by now.

I don't know why some ads die in effectiveness over time, maybe the offer gets over saturated… maybe the ads get copied, maybe a bit of both. Or perhaps it does continue to run well over the long term… but your second month may not get quality leads.

But it's important to note that as is the way of online marketing, you will always have to be testing, tweaking and reinventing your campaigns and ads over time.

Nothing is ever… 100% evergreen.

INCOME DISCLAIMER:

Please don't interpret any of these results as a promise or guarantee of your future earnings. Even though my personal results are modest, I still did spend a lot of time leading up to this learning how to write ads and setup the promotions. While Four Percent Group is the first business I was actually able to earn any income with… I did a lot of learning, testing, trial and error and practice leading up to this point. And while Four Percent will teach you how to do all this, it's still a skill you will have to learn, apply & put into practice, and your results will depend on the amount of effort and dedication you put into it.

So Does 4PERCENT Work? ... Are OTHER People Getting Results With FourPercent.com?

Conclusion

It's important to have the right expectations before getting started with any online marketing opportunity.

Hopefully the case studies and testimonials in this post show that like any online business or opportunity, results are never guaranteed. You will not get results simply by purchasing a product.

You have to apply what you learn, you will make mistakes, and you have to be willing to test different strategies. As is the nature of all online marketing.

But if you are willing to put the work in, persevere and be consistent over the long term the results are possible.
