New Way to Make Money Online - Almost as Good as Money in the Bank
I am always looking out for new ways to make more money online with less effort, even with mapquest. Recently I came across an innovation that you may want to hear about because it may affect the way you earn with your website in the very near future. I just signed up myself, and I decided I want to share it with you, guys, too. I think there is enough room there for everybody...
As you may know, major television networks are in trouble because their advertising revenue is dropping. At least people say so. TV networks are losing market share to the Internet. More and more people prefer to consume news themselves on their own schedule rather then being fed with something already half-processed, and on the schedule set by somebody else.
For the first time in history, website owners are sharing in the ad revenue that was formerly spent with the giant TV networks. Advertisers like Harley Davidson, HBO & Taco Bell are willing to pay you and me on 100% of our website traffic to make up for the loss of viewers that the big TV networks are experiencing.
"Thanks" to Google, we all got used to pay per click (PPC, or more "professional" CPC - cost per click) ads, and many newcomers to the business even do not know that there are other methods, more favorable for publishers. The best would be cost per time (CPT) of course, when you set up an ad once, and get paid a fixed sum of almost free money on the regular basis no matter what. As long as you are in, it is as good as the money in the bank.
Next to the best is CPI or CPM - cost per impression or thousand impressions (Latin Mille or Roman numeral M). Under this method you get paid by the number of impressions, i.e. how many times you displayed the ad to your visitors. No action is needed on the user side, nobody counts clicks, you don't have to worry about optimization or click fraud. Your only worry is traffic - the more traffic you bring to the page with this ad, the more money you make.
This new program I stumbled upon uses CPM method with a twist, and they call their method PPP - pay per Play. What is play? Play is a 5 second long context targeted audio ad, which is played once per page per visitor, right after the page loads. This is the twist, and this is the innovation. Nobody else did such kind of ads before on the Internet, as far as I know.
So, if you join, you get paid every time visitor opens the page with ad code. The more pages and visitors you have, the more you get paid. The good news are - if you have a website or blog, this service will complement whatever monetizing model you have in place already. Well, the bad news are - you can't use it on Hubpages. Not until HP staff looks into this and possibly adds this program to the list.
OK, I'm not teasing you any more, go read what they have to say about their service - here is the link - Ooops, there is no my affiliate link any more. Unfortunately, those guys went belly up...
Perhaps, you might want to learn how to beat a speeding ticket, or to browse through my selection of coach handbags. In fact, you might even find it entertaining going to my main site and reading a few articles about safe driving, including Joshua Nestor's report on TX defensive driving.
