Get paid by showing ads on your website

Sign up for Google's Adsense program.
A good company that converts traffic into revenue. A classy company with a successful program. A plus is that it fits in nicely to any website without making it look trashy. People don't like to be bombarded with ads, so text is a good idea for your own website. That's why I use it. I'm just like you, it's nothing personal, I just don't see that there's anything to lose from gaining a little bit of money no matter what the site is about.
Some sites are following-:

Some suggestions for you, if you want to place ads on your site

Not everyone is a veteran when it comes to ad revenue, so here are four ways to make money. They require time and resources, but less than you'd think.

1. Sign up for Google's Adsense program.
A good company that converts traffic into revenue. A classy company with a successful program. A plus is that it fits in nicely to any website without making it look trashy. People don't like to be bombarded with ads, so text is a good idea for your own website. That's why I use it. I'm just like you, it's nothing personal, I just don't see that there's anything to lose from gaining a little bit of money no matter what the site is about.

2. Sign up for surveys which pay you to fill them out.
If you've got extra time you may as well sign up an email account which can be designated for this. Advertisers are eager to know what you want to buy, so they will pay good money to gather that information. Once again, I'm not going to promote anyone here. I'll leave it to you to set that up.

3. Sign up for pay-click emails which will pay you for seeing their advertisements.
If you don't mind a few extra clicks you will be able to build up a little extra cash. The more you sign up for the more emails you get - most websites will limit the amount of emails you recieve so that you can't make truckloads, so signing up for different websites is the best way to go about making this avenue of income worthwhile.

4. Sell your excess items online.
Ebay, for example, is a great place to start. You have a lot of stuff sitting around that I'm sure you don't need. I'm sure I don't need to explain the selling tactics but as you know, even if you're only getting a fraction of the original price back in return, there will be more than a handful of suitors willing to pay up.

Before you even think about using Adsense, there are a few basics we must run through. You can skip these if you feel they don't apply to you. But if you're already making money on Adsense I would highly recommend you read this useful guide anyways.

1. You must own or decide to make a website.
Not everyone is a webmaster, not everyone can create wonderful layouts and pages of their own with code, but pretty much everyone can make a website these days.

2. You must generate traffic to your website in order to give Adsense a chance at making you money. There are multiple ways of getting traffic. It can either be earned or bought. To earn it, you must obviously have good content, and lots of it. Your website must be 'sticky' in that the visitor has a reason to come back whether it's to sort through all of your material or to get updates. This is the way you go about maintaining traffic levels instead of busting your wallet. You don't have to, but you can add your website to directories and request link exchanges with other websites. And, you absolutely must make it easy for your viewers to find your website on search engines. But these are things for another day. The alternative is for those who are confident that an investment in marketing will bring them a sound response and net profits.

So you've got your site and you're ready to convert your traffic into earnings. Good job getting this far. It should be a cruise from here, right? You'd like to think so, but most people make careless mistakes in how they advertise on their website, and this is the place where you will find advice. Onto the Adsense tips!

Sites are limited to three units on a page so as to not overwhelm readers. Positioning is crucial. Studies show that the most viewed area of a page is toward the top and left (where the majority of English language writing begins). Placing ads right after the content or embedding them in the articles are also effective techniques. Google has examples of placement to guide you once you join AdSense.

Adsense allows you to customize the ad colors to match the look of your site. Use this ability to make the ads look like the rest of the links on your site and be sure to match the background color as well. Visitors will respond better as they see will give the text a chance instead of unconsciously rejecting them as advertisements. Most advertisers make the mistake of drawing the reader's attention to their ad with vibrant colours and perhaps an animation or sound. That certainly catches your eye, but does it make you want to buy something from them if you know they're just out to grab your attention? The customer feels better knowing that it was them who was interested in the actual content of the ad, not the flashy colors that drew them in.

1. Ads at the top of the page and on the left of the page perform better than any other ads.
2. Ads without background colour and borders perform better than ads within borders with background colour.
3. Ads within content pages perform better than any other ads.
4. A search box on every page gives you another chance for earning Adsense income.
5. Your link at the top of the ad should be blue like a normal
link, the ad should be black, and the URL should also be black so that it blends in with the ad copy. That makes the link stand out and gives you a better chance of someone clicking on it.

How do you like the idea of getting paid to receive SMS? m-earn promises you just that !
These messages would only contain offer and discounts based on your own interests. You also get to decide the number of ads you receive and their delivery times.

  • When you selected the "Max. Number of ads per day" as 10 (or 7 or 5 etc), it is only your preference. It does not mean that you will surely get 10 ads every day. It only means that the maximum that you can ever get on a single day is 10. On some days you might not receive even a single ad, on others you might receive a few but not exceeding your preference.
  • mGinger doesn’t claim that it will send you any particular number of advertisements every day. Please understand that mGinger is just a medium. When advertisers come, you will get ads, when they don’t you will not get ads.
  • Please do not get carried away by the hype. Here is the reality: the money you will make from mGinger will in most cases for a long time not be much. The value of the service is not in the money you make directly from mGinger but in the valuable, relevant information that you get.

You Mint

How can you offer Free SMS when the rest of the world charges for it?
YouMint can offer you Free SMS because we get our advertisers to sponsor them for you. You can send SMS upto 80 characters long. The remainder is used by our advertisers to append their messages. The interesting thing is that the Ads that will get appended will be contextual in most cases :-) It could be quite cool! For example, if you sent a message to a friend asking them to meet for a coffee, you could actually see a Cafe Coffee Day advt displayed at the bottom - offering you a cool discount!

How can I make money on YouMint?
It is very simple. There are several ways you can make money on Youmint.

1) Introduce your friends and get paid when they join and when their friends join!

When you sign up at YouMint, you basically get an opportunity to introduce all your friends to this cool service, and get paid for it when they do sign up! And in turn when your friends sign up other friends you get paid again We will pay you Rs 0.50 each time a friend you referred signs up and Rs. 0.25 when your friend’s friend signs up.

YES! We actually pay you for getting friends signed up to this service!

So for example, if 20 of your friends sign up and then each of them sign up 20 friends each, you would be richer by 110 bucks straight away.( That’s (20 x 0.5) + (20 x 20 x 0.25)= 110)

2) Send Free SMS!

As a YouMint member, you can send Free SMS to your friends. You can send more Free SMSs to them if they are on YouMint as well! So go ahead and invite all your friends to YouMint so you can send them Free SMSs.

More Invites = More Free SMSs. The more people you have in your network the more Free SMSs you can send everyday.

3) Receive relevant SMS promos and receive money for each promo! Get paid for promos your friends and their friends receive as well!!

When you sign up with us, you will start receiving relevant promotional messages based on the number of messages you specify and the time you want to receive them. Each time you receive a message you will get paid for it! Whats more, you also get paid each time a referred friend and that friend’s friend gets a promotional message too.

Confused? OK, here’s how it works

- What you get each time you get a promo SMS – Rs 0.20
- What you get when a friend you referred get a promo – Rs 0.10
- What you get when a friend of the friend you referred gets a promo – Rs 0.05

So therefore, if you have lots of friends, who have a lot of friends, you could make a lot of money each time a promotion is done. Even if we send everyone 1 promo a day, you stand to earn Rs. 666 every month. OK, OK, here’s the math again

- What you make for receiving 1 promo a day for a month : 1 promo x 30 days x Rs.0.20 per promo = Rs 6
- What you make when a friend you referred gets a 1 promo a day for a month: 1 promo x 30 days x Rs.0.10 per promo x 20 friends = Rs 60
- What you make when a friend of a friend you referred gets 1 promo a day for a month : 1 promo x 30 days x Rs.0.05 per promo * 400 friends (assuming each of your twenty friends successfully referred 20 friends each)= Rs.600

So, Rs 6 + Rs 60+ Rs 600 adds up to a cool Rs 666!

So basically, you make enough to at least cover your mobile bill (and perhaps a coffee for us for coming up with this great idea!). If you are a poular person with lots of pals, you will make lots more. Else if you are the kind who walks around with the phone permanently attached to your ear, you better start making more friends so that you can cover that bill.

Why am I not receiving SMS promos? When do I start getting them?
Rome was not built in a day… and given that this is a new concept and a paradigm shift, it will take us time to get the wheels in motion. We have very large advertisers who have committed to advertise with us. We are now trying to increase our base of users so we can make this worth for our advertisers. However, we are offering you approx Rs. 900 worth of value in FREE SMSs every month. Additionally, you can make personalised wallpapers/screensavers too!

Do I get paid for just inviting people, even if they dont join?
You get paid for people who join your network AND who complete their registration by verifying their mobile number.

What all can I do here at YouMint?
You can send Free SMS, earn for growing your network, earn for receiving SMS promos, create free mobile content for your phone in the YouMint Studio, create and sell original content in the YouMint marketplace (coming soon)…YouMint aspires to be part of your mobile lifestyle!

My friends have accepted my invitation but have not verified their mobiles yet, what do I do?
Email them or scrap them or better yet, call them and tell them to verify their mobiles. As soon as they verify, they will appear green in your network :-)

What is the difference between “Network” and “Friends”? I have 20 friends in my friends circle, but no money in my wallet?
There is a difference between your “Network” and your “Friends”.

Your “Network” comprises of the people YOU have invited to YouMint and thus are members because of your invitation. You get paid only for those that are part of your network.

Your “Friends”, on the other hand include those in your network as well as other members on YouMint, who may be members already. You can make friends with anyone on YouMint who accepts your friendship request.

Get a small (but consistent) stream of cash just by reading emails

Here is a list of online programs which will send you emails periodically. You get paid for reading each one, sponsored by the advertisers. It seems we've moved into an age where so much junk gets filtered that advertisers are paying now just to be seen via email. One thing you need to consider is that before you get a paycheck you must reach a minimum amount of earnings.
For example, a few websites will require you to build up 50 dollars before they send out a cheque. This is normal for a business, as it would be a waste of time to send out cheques for 15 and 20 cents. AdSense's quota is 100 dollars, but these email programs will have much lower requirements. Here is a list of ones I have used:

1-: Earn Online Money Quickly

How you make money-:
You view websites in 30 second sessions via the "Surf Ads" page. Once the 30 seconds is up, you'll either get a green tick sign or a red 'X'. The green tick sign means you've earned $0.01 and as premium member $0.0125 for the visit and the 'X' means you have not earned money for the visit. You'll get red X's when you have more than one website from the "Surf Ads" page open. When this happens, you get no credit.

A valuable benefit to both the members and the advertisers is the repeat exposure that the advertiser gets. Whenever you click and view a website, you can visit that website again in 24 hours as long as the visit cap hasn't been reached. That's right! After 24 hours you can click and view the website again. This gives the advertiser optimal exposure by using "repeat advertising" and it further increases the members earning potential.

Earnings example (based on current averages)
» You click 10 ads per day = $0.10
» 20 referrals click 10 ads per day = $2.00
» Your daily earnings = $2.10
» Your weekly earnings = $14.70
» Your monthly earnings = $63.00

While we have no way of knowing how many ads will be available on a per week basis, we do know that is growing rapidly and advertisers are discovering the true potential of our service. We've just started and our advertiser base is small so BE PATIENT! Over the next coming months you will see an increase in the ads which will only increase your earnings! This is not a get-rich-scheme or scam, but it can put some extra gas money in your pocket!
