When most people think of how to make money online with affiliate marketing the first thing that comes to mind is using PPC (Pay Per Click) to drive traffic to their affiliate offers.
Using search engines PPC platforms like Google AdWords, MSN Adcenter and Yahoo search marketing affiliate marketers makes money online by paying whenever a click is generated off an ad placed on the search engine’s network.
Other search engine networks used to make money online with PPC include MIVA, SearchFeed, Marchex AdHere, ABCSearch, and 7Search.
PPC can drive good traffic to the sites that you are using to make money online. The cost however can be a major obstacle. It is easy to pay anywhere from $2.00 per click to as much as $100.00 depending on the keywords you are bidding on.
A good alternate to PPC when driving traffic to your site to make money online is PPV.
What is PPV?
PPV stands for ‘Pay Per View‘, which means that an advertiser pays only when their site is view by a prospective customer.
How does it work?
Based off the campaign you are using to make money online you select keyword targets related to your products or service. A user enters relevant keywords within a search box off any search engines. If your campaign keywords are a match to the user’s search terms your website is displayed as a pop-up or an interstitial over the targeted website.
With PPV you can also selected URL targets relevant to your products or services. For example, if you bid on ThisRandomSite.com your website will pop-up first before a user is directed to that URL.
You can also choose to run a RON (Run On Network) campaign which allows the system to randomly serve your site to users based off any keywords or URL. This method is not targeted so I would suggest staying away in the beginning stages of your money making campaigns.
Why are Pop-ups allowed?
PPV works regardless of pop-up blockers because the users have agreed to be served pop-up or interstitials based off applications or games they’ve downloaded from the network in the past.
What is the cost?
Compared to the cost of PPC, PPV cost pennies and I mean that literally. With PPV you can find yourself paying as little as $0.004 per view which can be a huge ROI as you make money online.
What are the PPV networks?
There are three major PPV networks that affiliate marketers use to make money online. They all operate under the same principles discussed earlier but with slightly different user interfaces.
The biggest in the industry is Traffic Vance. However its benefits are overshadowed by the fact that a $1000 deposit is needed to open an account. This is a huge roadblock to beginning marketers when they first start to make money online.
The second is Media Traffic. Their beginning deposit is $200.
Finally we have DirectCPV. This is the PPV network I would recommend for beginning affiliate marketers who want to make real money online. Their $100 deposit makes them quick popular and their interface is easy to navigate in terms of setting up a new campaign. They also offer some great campaign analysis and tracking options.
What to promote with PPV?
PPV is great when promoting all kinds of offers but the most effective ones to promote with PPV are CPA (Cost Per Action) offer. This is when the user doesn’t have to buy something before you get paid a commission. With CPA offers you make money online when the user performs a small required action like an email submit.
A great place to find CPA offer to use with your PPV campaigns is CB leads (ClickBank Leads). Unlike ClickBank itself, which only pays you when you make a sale, with CB leads you make money online for sending leads to ClickBank products. Your commissions can range from $1-$3.
Get started on your PPV campaigns now and soon you just might be dumping your PPC accounts. Use Direct CPV and offers from CB leads and you’ll make money online like any other big name affiliate does.
