How to sell site traffic and make money out of it
What does selling Internet traffic mean?
As a result, the number of visits to site B increased to 70 people, and the owner of site A receives a passive income of $1 for each click on the teaser.
In this example, the owner of site A acted as the seller of traffic, and the owner of site B acted as the advertiser and traffic buyer. They could meet on the forum, stock exchange, and other meditative platforms.
How does selling traffic from a site work?
At the same time, they report which users are of interest to them: their age, gender, geolocation. If the conditions suit the owner of the hyped resource, he or she places the advertising code on his or her site and gets profit.
To get as many offers as possible from advertisers, you need to register in several affiliate programs. When choosing partners, advertisers, you need to pay attention to the interface of their sites, content, page loading speed, and other parameters that simplify the use of the resource.
This is a particularly important point if the owner of the traffic source receives income when the action is performed by the user (purchase of goods, subscription). This ad format is called CPA (Cost per Action).
Ways to sell Internet traffic
In this case, the owner of the promoted website sets the cost, terms of placement, payment method, and other conditions.
Popular bloggers and project owners with tens or hundreds of thousands of visits per day (depending on the topic) can count on such privileges. In this case, you can request a sufficiently high price for one advertisement placed.
You can earn using contextual advertising in one click (PPC) or for every thousand visits (CPM). In the first case, a fixed amount is transferred to the owner of the traffic source site for each click of the visitor. The average cost of one click is $1-2.
In the second case, the specific amount goes to the owner of the source site after every thousand ad impressions, regardless of the number of clicks to the advertiser's site.
One of the most popular banner networks is AdBlade. To join it, the site's attendance must be more than 500,000 per month. The minimum price for placing a banner is $100.
Most notably, you can earn from a completed purchase. The commission can reach 90% of the goods' value. One of the most popular CPA networks is CityAds.
To participate in affiliate advertising networks, it's better to choose proven exchanges and services. They earn commissions for advertising and honestly withdraw funds to the account of sites' owners that are traffic sources. Therefore, one cannot believe the promises of cosmic earnings after registering on an unknown exchange.
By placing the code of the advertising tool on your website, you enter the affiliate network and receive income depending on the fixed conditions of the transactions.
