Almost everyone knows exactly what Google Adsense is. Website and blog owners make an extra income placing relevant ads on their site. Each time someone clicks on an ad the owner earns a few cents. The problem with Adsense is most people know about it, and therefore won’t click on the ads you have. Well, now there is a new type of ad in town that will give Google Adsense a run for their money and here is why:
Pay Per Play is a video ad service. That means website and blog owners will insert a code on to their site that will display a video ad each time someone visit’s the site. What makes Pay Per Play better than Google Adsense is that you get paid for each visitor that remains on your site for at least 5 seconds. The visitor doesn’t have to click on the ad or even have audio for their own computer. You will get paid for each visitor who stays on your site for at least 5 seconds.
It was mentioned in the Wall Street Journal today. You can read the article here: New Services Help Bloggers Bring in Ad Revenue by Kelly K. Spors
Pay Per Play is being launched in February 2008. If you get in now and start referring others to this site (which is totally free to use by the way) than you will have the opportunity to earn on all the ads displayed on your referral’s site. Say your referral gets 100 visitors per day and at the least you earn $.01 for each visitor. Than you would earn $365 for the whole year from that one referral. Now imagine you had 10 referrals. That comes to $3,650 for the year and you basically did nothing after you referred them. That also doesn’t count the income you would be making from your own site which would be significantly higher. You earn 25% of the ad revenue for the ads you show, and 5% for your referrals ads, and 5% for your referrals, referrals ads. Google Adsense doesn’t offer you that kind of payment plan.
Payout info: Pay Per Play pays you every week (Google once per month). All you have to do is reach their low $25 payout (Google is 4x that amount). You can choose to be paid, by check, Paypal, or direct deposit.
I also believe that having video’s on your site will attract visitors and make them stay on your site longer. It makes your site interesting so they will want to stick around and see what else you have to offer. If you don’t think this is true remember Speaking Avatars? They definitely got me staying on sites longer.
