Did you know that there are a few million active websites out there? Even though some of these websites act as personal blogs for their owners which don’t have the intention to earn money, most website owners are interested in making money. If you are one of them, you should know that joining an affiliate network is a good option to make money on your website. Many people know this fact, but they are not familiar with the different payment schemes they can find in these networks. That’s why we have decided to use this article to provide an explanation.
First and foremost, we have the PPI scheme or Pay per Impression. In other words, you will use a banner from an advertiser on your website. In order to earn money, just like in the case of other payment schemes on affiliate networks, you will need visitors. But, in the case of PPI, these visitors don’t have to do anything. All you have to do is to make them come to your website. Website owners that are using this scheme are usually paid per thousands of impressions/views. For instance, if the CPM (cost per thousand) is 10 dollars, you will get 10 dollars for one thousands of views of the banner.
Pay per Lead or Pay per Sale is another popular way to make money on your website. This is the scheme that promises the highest payouts, but it also requires more effort. In a situation like this, you can expect a hefty commission, but only if you get visitors that will click on the banners and finish the visit by purchasing something from the advertiser’s offer. In order to make PPL/PPS work, many website owners are adding reviews to their websites. A good review can definitely help a potential customer make a decision.
Finally, we have one of the most commonly used payment schemes among website owners – Pay per Click or PPC. This is another straightforward model of making money where website owners are placing advertisers’ banners and get paid whenever a visitor clicks on the banner and visits the advertisers’ landing page. Generally speaking, you can expect much better payout compared to PPI, but the payout is significantly lower than PPS/PPL.
Regardless of the payment scheme you choose, you should always be focused on getting more high-quality traffic to your website.
