28 Ways to Make Money with Your Website by Daniel Scocco There are several lists with “ways to make money with a website” on the Internet, but none of them seem to be complete. That is why I decided to create this one. If you know a method that is not listed below, just let us know and we’ll update it. [pic] Notice that ways to make money with a website are different from ways to make more money from it.
Methods to increase your traffic or click-through rate will help you make more money, but they do not represent a method of making money per se.
For example, one could suggest that blending AdSense ads with the content is a way to make money from a website. In reality it’s not; it’s just a way to make more money by improving your ad click-through rate. The real monetization method behind it is a PPC ad network. The list is divided into direct and indirect methods, and examples and links are provided for each point.
Enjoy! Direct Methods 1. PPC Advertising Networks Google AdSense is the most popular option under this category, but there are also others.
Basically you need to sign up with the network and paste some code snippets on your website. The network will then serve contextual ads (either text or images) relevant to your website, and you will earn a certain amount of money for every click. The profitability of PPC advertising depends on the general traffic levels of the website and, most importantly, on the click-through rate (CTR) and cost per click (CPC). The CTR depends on the design of the website.
Ads placed abode the fold or blended with content, for instance, tend to get higher CTRs. The CPC, on the other hand, depends on the nice of the website. Mortgages, financial products and college education are examples of profitable niches (clicks worth a couple of dollars are not rare), while tech-related topics tend to receive a smaller CPC (sometimes as low as a couple of cents per click). The source of the traffic can also affect the overall CTR rate. Organic traffic (the one that comes from search engines) tends to perform well because these isitors were already looking for something, and they tend to click on ads more often. Social media traffic, on the other hand, presents terribly low CTRs because these visitors are tech-savvy and they just ignore ads. List of popular CPC advertising networks: • Google Adsense • Yahoo! Publisher Network (YPN) : Simply display ads that are relevant to the content of your site and earn money from qualified clicks. * No investment is required and setup is quick and easy. • BidVertiser Create and place your text ads on thousands of relevant websites | |[pic] | |Run your ad on our pay per click advertising network | |and start receiving new targeted and easy-to-convert | |prospects in less than 10 minutes: | |[pic] | |1.

CPM Advertising Networks CPM advertising networks behave pretty much as PPC networks, except that you get paid according to the number of impressions (i. e. , page views) that the ads displayed on your site will generate. CPM stands for Cost per Mille, and it refers to the cost for 1,000 impressions. A blog that generates 100,000 page views monthly displaying an advertising banner with a $1 CPM, therefore, will earn $100 monthly. CPM rates vary with the network, the position of the ad and the format. The better the network, the higher the CPM rate (because they have access to more advertisers). The closer you put the ad to the top of the page, the higher the CPM.
The bigger the format (in terms of pixels), the higher the CPM. You can get as low as $0,10 and as high as $10 per 1,000 impressions (more in some special cases). CPM advertising tends to work well on websites with a high page views per visitor ratio (e. g. , online forums, magazines and so on). List of popular CPM advertising networks: • Casale Media • Burst Media • Value Click • Advertising. com • Tribal Fusion • Right Media 3. Direct Banner Advertising Selling your own advertising space is one of the most lucrative monetization methods. First and foremost because it enables you to cut out the middleman commissions and to determine your own rates.
The most popular banner formats on the web are the 728? 90 leaderboard, the 120? 600 skyscraper, the 300? 250 rectangle and the 125? 125 button. The downside of direct banner advertising is that you need to have a big audience to get qualified advertisers, and you will need to spend time managing the sales process, the banners and the payments. Related links: • How to Find Advertisers for Your Website • Finding Advertisers for Your Blog • Direct Advertising Sales for Beginners • Openads Ad Server • OIO Publisher Ad Platform 4. Text Link Ads After Google declared that sites selling text links without the nofollow tag would be penalized, this monetization method became less popular.
Many website owners are still using text links to monetize their sites, though, some using the nofollow tag and some not. The advantage of this method is that it is not intrusive. One can sell text links directly through his website or use specialized networks like Text-Link-Ads and Text-Link-Brokers to automate the process. Text link marketplaces and networks: • DigitalPoint Link Sales Forum • Text-Link-Ads • Text-Link-Brokers • TNX • LinkWorth 5. Affiliate Marketing Affiliate marketing is a very popular practice on the Internet. Under this system you have a merchant that is willing to let other people (the affiliates) sell directly or indirectly its products and services, in exchange for a commission.
Sometimes this type of advertising is also called CPA (cost per action) or CPL (cost per lead) based. Affiliates can send potential customers to the merchant using several tools, from banners to text links and product reviews. In order to find suitable affiliate programs you can turn to individual companies and publishers like Dreamhost and SEOBook, or join affiliate marketplaces and networks. List of popular affiliate marketplaces and networks: • Commission Junction • ClickBank • Azoogle Ads • Link Share 6. Monetization Widgets The latest trend on the web are widgets that let you monetize your website. Examples include Widgetbucks and SmartLinks.
Some of these services operate under a PPC scheme, others behave like text link ads, others yet leverage affiliate links. do the heavy lifting by creating contextual ad widgets that your visitors will actually click on and find engaging. You reap the rewards of PPC ad widgets that earn better than $2 CPM. Their main differentiator, however, is the fact that they work as web widgets, making it easier for the user to plug and play the service on its website. List of companies that provide monetization widgets: • WidgetBucks • ScratchBack • SmartLinks 7. Sponsored Reviews PayPerPost pioneered this model, with much controversy on the beginning (related to the fact that they did not require disclosure on paid posts).
Soon other companies followed, most notably Sponsored Reviews and ReviewMe, refining the process and expanding the paid blogging model. Joining one of these sponsored reviews marketplaces will give you the opportunity to write sponsored posts on a wide range of topics. Not all bloggers are willing to get paid to write about a specific product or website (because it might compromise the editorial credibility), but the ones who do are making good money out of it. If your blog has a big audience you could also offer sponsored reviews directly, cutting off the commissions of the middleman. List of sponsored reviews and paid blogging networks: • PayPerPost • Sponsored Reviews • ReviewMe • BlogVertise • Smorty 8. RSS Feed Ads
With the quick adoption of the RSS technology by millions of Internet users, website owners are starting to find ways to monetize this new content distribution channel. Feedburber already has its own publisher network, and you can sign-up to start displaying CPM based advertising on your feed footer. Bidvertiser recently introduced a RSS feed ad option as well, with a PPC scheme. Finally, some blogs are also opting to sell banners or sponsored messages on their feed directly. John Chow and Marketing Pilgrim are two examples. Related links: • Feedburner • BidVertiser • Pheedo 9. Sponsors for Single Columns or Events If you website has specific columns or events (e. g. , a weekly podcast, an interview series, a monthly survey, a special project) you could find companies to sponsor them individually.
This method increases the monetization options for website owner, while giving advertisers the possibility to target a more specific audience and with a reduced commitment. Mashable illustrates the case well. They have several advertising options on the site, including the possibility to sponsor specific columns and articles, including the “Daily Poll” and the “Web 2. 0 Invites. ” Problogger also runs group writing projects occasionally, and before proceeding he publicly announce the project asking for sponsors. 10. Premium Content Web site content that is available for a fee. Premium content can include e-books, articles or content that is offered to readers on a subscription basis.
Some websites and blogs give away part of their content for free, and charge for access to the premium content and exclusive tools. SEOMoz is a good example. They have a very popular blog that gives advice and information on wide range of SEO related topics. On top of that visitors can decide to become premium members. It costs $48 monthly and it grants them access to guides, tools and other exclusive material. 11. Private Forums While the Internet is populated with free forums, there is also the possibility to create a private one where members need to pay a single or recurring fee to join. SEO Blackhat charges $100 monthly from its members, and they have thousands of them.
Obviously in order to charge such a price for a forum membership you need to provide real value for the members (e. g. , secret techniques, tools, and so on). Performancing also launched a private forum recently, focused on the networking aspect. It is called The Hive, and the monthly cost is $10. These are just two examples. There are many possibilities to create a private and profitable forum, you just need to find an appealing angle that will make it worth for the members. List of popular forum software: • vBulletin • Simple Machines Forum • phpBB • Vanilla 12. Job Boards All the popular blogs are trying to leverage job boards to make some extra income.
Guy Kawasaki, ReadWriteWeb, Problogger… you name it. Needless to say that in order to create an active and profitable job board you need first to have a blog focused on a specific niche, and a decent amount of traffic. The advantage of this method is that it is passive. Once you have the structure in place, the job listings will come naturally, and you can charge anywhere from $10 up to $100 for each. List of popular job board software: • JobThread • Web Scribe Job Board • SimplyHired Job-o-matic • Jobbex 13. Marketplaces Sitepoint is the online marketplace by excellence. Some websites and blogs, however, are trying to replicate that model on a smaller scale.
Depending on your niche, a market place that allows your visitors to buy, sell and trade products could work well. Over the time you could start charging a small fee for new product listings. The problem with this method is that there are no standard software on the web, so you would need to hire a coder to get a marketplace integrated into your website. You can see an example of a marketplaces being used on EasyWordpress and on Mashable. 14. Paid Surveys and Polls There are services that will pay you money to run a small survey or poll on your website. The most popular one is called Vizu Answers. Basically you need to sign up with them, and select the kind of polls that you want to run your site. Most of these services operate under a CPM model. 5. Selling or Renting Internal Pages Million Dollar Wiki made this concept popular, but it was being used on the web for a long time around (check Pagerank10. co. uk for instance). These websites sell for a single fee or rent for a recurring fee internal pages on their domain. Usually they have either high Pagerak or high traffic, so that people purchasing a page will be able to benefit in some way. Implementing this method on a small blog would be difficult, but the concept is interesting and could be explored further. 16. Highlighted Posts from Sponsors Techmeme probably pioneered this idea, but somehow it has not spread to other websites.
The tech news aggregator displays editorial posts on the left column, and on the sidebar they have a section titled “Techmeme Sponsor Posts. ” On this part the advertisements from the sponsors site or blog get highlighted and redirect traffic to their sites. The method has a huge potential of earning. On that section posts from the blog of the advertisers get highlighted, sending qualified traffic their way. Considering that the monthly cost for one spot is $5000 and that they have around 6 sponsors at any given time, it must be working well. Google Now Highlights Forum Posts in Search Results • For some types of queries, the best results often come from online forums. What’s the best place to eat in San Francisco? What type of RAM should I buy? Where do I find a flux capacitor?
Recognizing this, Google has added a new feature to its search results, highlighting several relevant forum posts on sites that have a large number of posts on a specific topic. [pic] In the image above, my query was “best Intel motherboard”; Google([pic]) has recognized that tomshardware. com contains a forum with several relevant topics, showing them below the main result, together with the dates when those topics were created. In certain situations, this could save us plenty of time, as you can jump directly to a forum post without searching for it on the actual site. Being able to see the date of topic creation is handy too, as you can quickly filter out old info.
I’d like to see a setting that enables you to see more forum results, though; four forum topics often isn’t enough. 17. Donations Placing a “Donate” link or button on a website can be an efficient way to earn money, especially if your blog is on a niche where readers learn and gain value from your content. Personal development and productivity blogs, for instance, tend to perform well with donation based systems (one good example being Steve Pavlina). A small variation of this method appeared sometime ago with the Buy Me a Beer plug-in. This WordPress plug-in enables you to insert a customized message at the bottom of each article, asking the readers to chip in for a beer or coffee. 18. In-text Adverting
In-text adverting networks like Kontera and Vibrant Media will place sponsored links inside your text. These links come with a double underline to differentiate them from normal links, and once the user rolls the mouse over the link the advertising will pop. Should the user click on it the site owner will make some money. Some people make good money with this method, but others refrain from using it due to its intrusiveness. It is also interesting to note that very few mainstream websites have experimented with in-text advertising. 19. Pop-ups and Pop-unders Pop-ups are a common yet annoying form of advertising on the Internet. If you are just trying to make a much money as possible from your website, you could experiment with them.
If you are trying to grow the traffic and generate loyal visitors, however, you probably should stay away from them. Just consider the hundreds of pop-up blockers out there: there is a reason why they are so popular. Ad networks that use pop-ups: • Tribal Fusion • PayPopup • PopupAd • Adversal 20. Audio Ads Also called PPP (Pay Per Play), this advertising method was introduce by Net Audio Ads. the concept is pretty simple: play a small audio advertising (usually 5 seconds) every time a visitor enters into your website. The user should not be able to stop it, creating a 100% conversion rate based on unique visitors. The company is still rolling tests, but some users are reporting to get from a $4 to a $6 CPM.
Regardless of the pay rate, though, this is a very intrusive form of advertising, so think twice before using it. 21. Selling the Website Selling your website could be your last resource, but it has the potential to generate a big sum of money in a short period of time. Market places on online forums like DigitalPoint and Sitepoint are always active with website buyers and sellers. Keep in mind that they most used parameter to determine the value of a website is the monthly revenue that it generates, multiplied by a certain number (the multiplier can be anything from 5 to 30, depending on the expectations of the seller, on the quality of the site, on the niche and other factors). Some people also make money trading and flipping websites.
They either create them from scratch or buy existing ones, and after some revamping they sell them for a profit.

Selling an Ebook Perhaps one of the oldest money making strategies on the web, using a website to promote a related ebook is a very efficient way to generate revenue. You could either structure the website around the book itself, like SEOBook. com, or launch the ebook based on the success of the website, like FreelanceSwitch did we the book How to be a Rockstar Freelancer. Related inks: • Writing an ebook for your blog • How to sell ebooks • Processing payments for your ebook • How to sell digital products online • List of ebook selling software 23. Selling a Hardcover Book Many authors and journalists leverage their blogs or websites to sell copies of hardcover books. Examples include Guy Kawasaki, Seth Godin and Malcolm Gladwell. While most of these people were already renowned authors before they created their website, one could also follow the other way around. Lorelle VanFossen did exactly that with her Blogging Tips book. First she built her authority on the subject via her blog, and afterwards she published the book.
List of self publishing and publishing services: • Lulu • Self Publishing • iUniverse • WordClay 24. Selling Templates or WordPress Themes As more and more people decide to get an online presence, website templates and WordPress themes become hotter and hotter. On this segment you have mainstream websites like TemplateMonster, as well as individual designers who decide to promote and sell their work independently. Brian Gardner and Unique Blog Designs are two examples of websites that make money with the sales of premium and custom WordPress themes. 25. Offering Consulting and Related Services Depending on your niche, you could make money by offering consulting and related services.
If you are also the author of your blog, the articles and information that you will share will build your profile and possibly certify your expertise on that niche, making it easier to gain customers. Chris Garrett used a similar strategy. First he created a highly influential blog on the blogging and new media niche, and afterwards he started offering consulting services to clients with related problems and needs. 26. Creating an Email List or Newsletter Email lists and newsletters represent one of the most powerful marketing and money making tools on the Internet. They offer incredible conversion rates, and the possibility to call people to action in a very efficient way.
Creating a big list is a difficult task though, so if you have a popular website you could leverage it to increase the number of subscribers on your list. Yaro Starak is a famous Internet marketer, and if you visit his blog you will notice that right on top he has a section encouraging visitors to subscribe to his email newsletter. Yaro generates five figures in revenues each month from his email newsletters, proving that this method works. List of software to manage email newsletters: • AWeber • SendStudio NX • PHP Autoresponder • Constant Contact 27. Mentoring programs People are willing to pay for someone or something that will teach them and give them knowledge (as opposed to mere information).
Education is one of the biggest industries in the world, and the online landscape behaves in a similar way. Creating a mentoring program related to the niche of your website could be very profitable if you manage to structure and promote it adequately. There is a wide range of media and tools that you can use to deliver the information, from text articles to audio and video lessons. Brian Clark leveraged the success of Copyblogger to launch a mentoring program teaching people how to build membership and how to sell content online. The program is titled Teaching Sells, and it costs $97 monthly. Sounds expensive, but they have over 1,000 members. 28. Creating a conference around the website
If your website takes off and becomes an authority on its niche, you could create a conference around it. Depending on the size of your audience, the event could attract thousands of people, and you could make money directly from conference passes and sponsors. Search Engine Land, for instance, created a series of conferences that visit several cities on the United States and on other countries as well. The conferences are called Search Marketing Expo, and the tickets and passes cost thousands of dollars. WAYS: This is the fun part — actually making money online with your website. There are tons of ways to do this, so feel free to mix and match the following concepts, or come up with one of your own.
Note that you’ll need to experiment with your monetization. A website that might only make $10 a day from adsense could make $1000 from affiliate programs. Choose your method of making money wisely. Advertising Programs Advertising programs are the most popular way to make an income with a website — almost every website has them. There are plenty of companies that give you a special code to put on your website. This code then looks like a block of advertisements when visitors see it. There are basically direct types of online advertisements — CPC, CPM and direct ads. “CPC” stands for “Cost Per Click”, which means you’ll make money only when someone clicks on your ad.
You can make anywhere between 10 cents and 10 dollars per click. “CPM” stands for “Cost Per Thousand”, which means you’ll get paid when people see the ads — just a very, very small amount. You might get paid $1-2 per thousand times someone sees the ads. A direct ad is when you are paid directly for the ad to be listed on your website. This amount isn’t dependent on how much traffic will see their ad or how many clicks they get — they’re making a decision to trust that your website will make their ad worth while.

Direct Advertising Programs • PerformancingAds. com • OIOPublisher. com These are just the start. There are hundreds of advertising programs to be found online. Do some digging and you can find more. Sell Products A website is basically a storefront — you can sell products. You can sell anything from birdhouses to pet food to wholesale watches — if it exists, you can sell it. Even if you don’t own your own product, you can sell a product for another person or company. That’s called “affiliate marketing”, and you can read about it below. Affiliate Programs Affiliate marketing is where you become a sort-of online salesperson for a company or person.
You get a special link that only you have — anyone who buys/signs up through your link will be registered in the main database. The computer will track how many sales you make, and you’ll get a comission. For example, at my financial website, I’m a salesperson for banks and “sell” savings accounts. If someone signs up for a savings account through my site, I’ll make about $25. That’s how affiliate programs work. ClickBank. com CJ. com Amazon. com Last Thoughts There are tons of more ways to make money online. You can sell a service (consulting, reviews, advice, graphic design, freelance writing, etc), sell links (risky) and dozens of other things.
Personally, I use a mixture of affiliate programs and advertising programs. I find they go together well. If you haven’t built your website yet, then read the 10-step program to get started. http://www. 2createawebsite. com/money/ Make Money Online – Using Google AdSense or Clickbank? Posted by Alan Liew | 11:24 AM 9 comments Every ad in our blog or website is really worth for our business. If we’re planning to monetize our website or blog, the ads you see are the basis of monetization. Clickbank and Google Adsense are the top programs to deal with, and it’s sure that you really make money with them by placing ads within your website or blog.
Of course, real traffic or unique targeted visitors are needed daily for our blog or website to generate revenue and impressions. But what are the differences between Clickbank and Google Adsense? They have the same goal, which is to help people in monetizing their website or blog. But these top revenue programs are specifically competed themselves to be the best revenue program ever. More and more people are beginning to have interest in putting their ads to their website or blog, whether it’s Google Adsense or Clickbank, but whose better? Google Adsense is a pay-per-click program which allows the publisher to earn money through [pic]the visitors’ clicks. These ads came from the advertisers who use Google Adwords for their ad campaign.
Advertisers have set their rates depending on the budget they have for their own ad, and the publisher will have his or her share through targeted visitors’ clicks. Of course, you’re not allowed to click your own ads because it’s called a fraudulent click which Google is very smart in detecting the IP of the one’s who click the same ads on your blog or website. The earnings really depend on the keywords and niche you have included in your website or blog, because there are high paying keywords and low paying keywords as well. You can check it using the Google Adsense Keyword Tool, or the Google Trends. You can also pay to others for advertising your own Adsense which their site must have huge traffic and high PR.
Google Adsense has a minimum payment of $100 through Western Union or mailed check. On the other hand, Clickbank is a pay-per-sale program which allows the publisher to earn [pic]money through clicking your ads and purchased the product you promoted. These ad rates are being set by vendors, who are the sources of selling these digital products to many, as we only promote their products to our website or blog. We can earn up to 75% of their total sales, much bigger and more potential than Google Adsense. The good news is, we can click our own Clickbank ads because if we’re planning to purchase the product we’ve promoted, still we earn a huge potential income.
So far, there are more users who use Clickbank ads rather than Google Adsense. In terms of making money through our website or blog, Google Adsense and Clickbank is a great tandem, and it’s possible to combine them together in your website or blog as we earn much more than sticking to just one program.

BlueBayptr is a great PTS ( paid to search ), PTC ( paid to click ) PTJ (paid to join or sign up) and PTR ( paid to read ) program and, unlike some, has a low payout threshold of $2.
This amount can be quickly reached by joining other programs from the Paid to Signup section, searching on links in your Inbox and clicking on banners in the Paid to Click area. I earn about $7 a month on my own searches. Payment is by PayPal so you will need to get a free PayPal account. If you don’t do proper searches (see below) then you will not be sent many paid links. Here is a tutorial on how to make a valid search . It will take longer than the 40 seconds shown to finish loading three pages but if the advertiser doesn’t get paid, you wont get the links in the future. Rpoints is aimed at UK/Euro surfers comparing prices of goods. An example of how Rpoints worked to save me 36% off my UK car insurance is here… This shows that you can save money and make money using Rpoints.
Rpoints is a great tool to use when trying to find the best deal, you can find deals on almost everything from life insurance to new computer software. I also received ? 20 (2,000 points) cashback for opening an Egg credit card. It really works!. Go to ‘easy money’ then ‘recurring’ where comparing prices earns about 2p to 6p a click up to a max of about ? 1 a day. Rpoints are ultra-cautious about awarding points. They take days to check, then credit, your points and then a month or more to validate them before you can cash in. A good forum explains all this. But, once the ball is rolling and you’re clicking every day, the cash rolls into PayPal at ? 5 minimum a time and in ? terling too so you can have dollar and sterling PayPal accounts to save on exchange rates. Higher Payouts from ‘free to join’ programs. Normally I avoid very high payout programs where it sometimes takes a year to reach the minimum by which time the site may have vanished! You WILL get paid with these programs; about $35 to $50 a month for just these programs and there are dozens more to choose from. Join up, add to your favourites or put an icon on your desktop by dragging on a links page for each program and visit the sites at intervals through the day and earn a bit each time. It soon adds up. I can get you referrals. Contact me for details on how its done. TIPS – 1.
Right click on the log-in page for each program and save a shortcut link to your desktop, or, Add to your Favourites in a new folder, named Daily, for instance. Much easier to remember your daily earning sites by double clicking on the icons or links. 2. Write the address and log-in details for each site in the back of your diary. It is easy to forget your user name and password and you can continue to earn money on another pc when away from home. 3. Get into the habit of regular visits. Most sites will cancel your account if you don’t make use of it and any money earned will be lost. 4. Contact me if you need help or advice. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fourth, make a web site of your own and get advertisers on it. The final group of earning programs can be placed on your own web site. First you need a website with content interesting enough to attract visitors. Think of a subject that you know a lot about – you, your family, your job, your hobby – whatever it is, focus on it and provide detailed information; facts, figures. Try to make your web site the definitive source of information on your chosen subject. With a web site designed you need a domain name and a hosting service. It is like an address to the house where your web site lives. I use Easily to buy my domain names and Cirtex to host them, both companies give excellent service and support.
Promote your website using the points earned from working the PTS, PTR and PTC you joined above in section three and to get referrals to sign up under you. Once you have a web site with solid content you have a ‘product’ to sell. Many of the top programs will not accept you as an affiliate unless you have a web site of substance. The star payer is Google AdSense. They pay for clicks and pay very well and cleverly match their ads to the content of your page. Minimum payout is $100 by cheque. Chitika also pay you for clicks on their targeted ads on your web site but have a minimum payout of only $10 to Paypal. At the moment, only clicks from US and Canada visitors count for payment but more countries are to be added later. A good affiliate scheme is [pic][pic]TradeDoubler . here you can join up for free to any of dozens of schemes under one ‘roof’ . All affiliate schemes have a minimum payout limit of around $50 so grouping schemes together as with [pic][pic]TradeDoubler . [aimed at European web sites] and Commission Junction [aimed at North America but covering the world] means that you can get a cheque earlier. Lots of companies would love you to join them as an affiliate and will pay you a commission when your visitors buy some of their products. It makes sense to join up with companies compatible with your site. Amazon sell a lot more than just books now and pay 5% to 7. 5% commission by targeting specific goods with a link from your site.
Bravenet has a lot of free goodies to add to your web site to attract more visitors and can help in setting up and hosting a web site with a free domain name. They also offer 50mb of free space on their servers to store your password protected back-up files and sensitive data. A well respected site of long standing.. Banner advertisements, love ’em or hate ’em, are part of the Net. Place these standard sized banners from AdBrite on your page and earn up to $1/1000 impressions depending on validity of visitor. Note that these are impressions or CPM rates, your visitor just has to see them, they do not have to click on the ads or buy anything. That is why the rates are lower than ‘ pay per click ‘ banners.
AdBrite pay out monthly by cheque for earnings over $50 and pay me regularly. A large variety of banner and button sizes are available from Oxado and they pay well for clicks. Join up, get your site approved and then get your banner code to put on your web site to start earning. Depending where you live in the world you will be paid by wire, cheque or Paypal. Pop-under windows are better selling tools than banners and PopupTraffic. com will pay you up to $1. 80/1000 impressions. This is the best you will get on the net and they pay monthly without fail. Popup killer browsers have changed the market so they only supply pop-unders but with anti-killer code that works with the major browsers.
A busy site will still earn more than the $25 minimum for a cheque to be sent each month. They are now open to international affilliates and pop-under earnings. Remember, these are all free to join; you have no outgoings other than your normal internet connection which you have anyway. To be perfectly frank, the only downside to these deals is that it takes up your time to organise the links, and your browser and/or web site will run a bit slower while advertising banners load. The Internet is fast changing – please let us know if a good deal comes along or if you find a crooked deal; contact simetric. co. uk and we will check it out and give it an unbiased opinion
