Still trying to wrap my head around the week's events. Went from being the most scared I have been since I became self employed to having three of the best days I have ever had

Easily the most frustrating four figure profit day I have ever had. Why? Because around 9am, LI decided to go in disapprove almost all my campaigns, even though they had already approved them. Trying to get them reapproved, but of course, they take forever to approve anything

Concerned, but not freaking out. It may take some back and forth, but I think eventually I will get an approval. Still, I lose out on potentially hundreds of dollars every hour that they drag their feet

Waited to see if my revised campaign would be accepted. It sort of was (some of the keywords were disapproved). So I started new campaigns with those same keywords, hoping to sneak them through, and sure enough, one of them did go through around 4:30!

I included some additional keywords that I had not included before and those sucked up a lot of money, so I know they don't convert now

Was having one of the best days I have ever had online, and then around 8:20, LI shut down my account. I don't think the NoIP Fraud cloaker is working anymore. Regardless, it's pretty clear these guys are stepping up their game in terms of monitoring campaigns. I have never gotten a disapproval notice during non business hours

Trying to get things reapproved on my other account again. I suspect the strategy moving forward will have to be to have multiple accounts with the same campaigns in them, and then when they zap one, you have others ready to go

A major pain in the ass to be sure, but when you're profiting $2k a day, it's probably worth it

Is this all still using your self-targeting method?

Took the campaign that did so well on LI over to TV. Spent $203, zero conversions. Yes, my targets on LI were more targeted, but I cannot believe I did not get a single conversion there

I also got hit with $375 in refunds. A downside to selling refundable products is that if you see a slowdown (or in my case a complete stoppage) of sales, your future sales are adversely affected by these refunds

Trying to get my LI stuff reapproved, but as usual they are taking forever
