Simple Answer - 1000. However, dump a losing ad quickly. For example, if ad A is pulling in a 5 to 1 response over ad B, come up with a new ad B that attempts to beat ad A. You may see these results almost immediately. Examine the winning ad and beat it. Do not get hung up on the sample size if an ad stinks.
I hope this helps.
Best of Luck,
PS I may assist you as my time permits. Right now I am doing something that I haven't done for many years. I am actively soliciting new select clients due to selling one of my businesses and freeing myself up a little. But as you might expect, I am still very busy. That is how I like it.
