What To Know About Pay Per Click Affiliate Marketing

I’m writing this post to point out areas about Pay Per Click Affiliate Marketing that you should know if you choose to go in this area. 

Having a website is important in this online world we live in and can make a HUGE difference in your progress.  However, that doesn’t mean that it’s a deal breaker.  If you new or just plainly don’t want to go to the trouble of building a website right now, that is ok.  You can get by without one.  You should be careful here, there is the type of PPC that pays you to send traffic to an affiliate company and there is the type in which you pay for each click.  For the purpose of this article, we’re going to be concerned with the latter.

The first type mentioned Is where you can earn Pay Per Click / Sale without a website.  Essentially you are getting paid to send traffic to merchants.  There aren’t to many of these types of programs that you can take advantage of and this is due to something called “click fraud”.    Here are a few PPC networks for affiliate marketing:  VigLink, IZEA & Linqia.  Now you are not limited to just PPC.  You can also Pay Per Sale, this way you can earn more money.

Something to consider about Pay Per Click Affiliate Programs that you should be aware of if you are considering going this route.  They are becoming unpopular as many affiliate networks have phased them out.  Your biggest challenge in this area will be to find one that still offers this option.  The reason for this phase out has to do with Bot traffic and dealing with fraud.

Pay Per Click Affiliate Marketing is a very fierce and competitive field of search and will take your diligence to succeed.  You won’t get rich overnight and you’ll need to be very dedicated with plenty of hard work to get there. 

The second type that we are focusing on for Pay Per Click is a very expensive way to work with Affiliate Marketing.  Many affiliate marketers loose tons of money and I do mean tons of money before turning a profit and that’s if they get there.

Depending on what you are paying per click and what your commissions are, you would need around 1 sale for every 200 visitors or so.  Make more sales that this, and then you could be earning a profit.  This is based on paying 20 cents per click and making $40 in commissions.  Even for those who are seasoned PPC affiliate, they can burn through a ton of money starting a new campaign as they tweak their site to start earning money.  Do as much research as you can about the product and/or program and company before diving into PPC.  Be prepared to have some money set aside to pay for your campaigns.  If you don’t have funds to burn, than this type of campaign isn’t for you.  You need to be able to have money to “burn” to function properly with PPC Affiliate Marketing.  If  you can’t afford it, that doesn’t mean you can’t ever do it.  You can always save this option for another time when you are better able to have money to burn.  But if you are really interested, see below for more tips.
