Cash and Pay-per-click Affiliate Programs

Everyday, millions pay to get a ride on the Knowledge Super Highway. Now it is generally understood that many revenue-generating activities make the Internet an open resource. PPC affiliate programs can be an effective venue to make money off the Internet, whether you belong to a private sales organization or you are only involved in internet marketing. For the merchant and the affiliate, a relationship with an affiliate merchant is a win-win situation: revenues are that because of visibility and traffic, while the affiliate is earning good cash.

To make it even simpler: when someone clicks on the ad’s connection, the affiliate merchant offers a strip of ads and pays you. For every click, you can get a fee of $0.10 to $0.30, but depending on your merchant affiliate, often it can go higher. Often a quota ($1.4 for every 1000 clicks) is required by merchants. Plus, if you happen to like their goods too you can get discounts from your merchant associates. While your website is producing cash, you can just kick back and relax. Sounds straight forward, doesn’t it?

Cash and Pay-per-click Affiliate Programs

What is PCC Affiliate Program?

PPC means pay-per-click, in which you are in cooperation with an affiliate company that actually pays you for each click. In reality, two forms of PCC affiliate programs are currently available: those who pay a commission based on the number of clicks and the other based on sales. The pay-per-click method is much more common than pay-per-lead because, regardless of whether or not the visitor buys from the affiliate merchant, the affiliate is charged by simply clicking the ad. Plus, a visitor’s chances of buying something from the affiliate merchant are not really that high.

Read the fine print carefully when selecting an affiliate program-some pay-per-click services get the ratio of the number of people who went to your site versus the actual people who clicked on the ad. This will hurt your earnings if you have a highly focused website.

How am I starting?

You need to have a website, of course. Choose the best affiliate merchant that is most connected to your subject, based on your target audience. Your website is about carpentry, for instance, so you can check for affiliate programs that offer carpentry equipment.

However that’s not a concern if you don’t have a website. You can set up a content site like ‘Taking Care of Puppies’ or ‘Decorating your own House’ for absolutely everything under the sun. But wait, it’s not over yet. We are presented with a question about how to maximize traffic! You need to get internet surfers to see your website first then the commercial.

How do I boost my traffic?

Next, build the website in such a way that internet users are drawn to it. It is often advised to use a user-friendly site so that clients can know which one to select. Take into account the advertisement’s look and sound. Most possibly, if it doesn’t look professional, users would just ignore it. Place the ad in a strategic place, one where it can be easily seen by users. The exposure of the ad is critical at all times.

Another way is in forums, online groups, ezine articles or bulletin boards to post a link to your website. This form, however, needs a lot of effort, which defeats your aim of getting easy cash in the first place! The trick is to do something and forget about it one day. It’s like putting autopilot on your company. Be sure to monitor site activity to maintain your pay-per-click business, so you’re updated on how much money you make.

Am I able to make more money?

You could pursue a two-tier affiliate program if you think you should go to the next level. This gives you the authority to hire partners. You will also get a share of what your affiliate generates, other than the money you get from the clicks on your website. Some businesses offer 30 percent on all referral transactions to a soaring 50 percent commission.

Note, the partner program should be able to handle and track you. You can get paid more without even lifting a finger if you can hire more affiliates! Choose affiliates that may most likely draw and carry more traffic to more internet users. You just have to know the people who are right.
