Many people ask me how I am able to make the money I do via the internet. My first response is lots of hard work. Then I tell them I don’t limit my revenue stream. I will discuss how diversifying your revenue stream which will make you more money.
Many people make money with Adsense and have maybe even tried using cpa networks but many end up relying on Adsense. Why would someone do this when cpa offers are more profitable? Because Adsense makes it easy, you just post the code on your site and most likely it will make money.
So you have adsense on your site and it makes money, why should you try CPA offers? Because they payouts are better and once you target your audience your overall revenue will increase. For Example I had a site that ran adsense I made about 40 dollars a day on average with adsense. This isn’t a fortune but hey it’s only one site. I decide to try CPA offers and at first I didn’t make much of anything but after some minor tweaking the money started coming in. I targeted my audience with CPA offers in addition to Adsense which brought my daily earnings for that site up to 110 a day meaning I added 70 dollars a day by promoting CPA offers.
The profit doesn’t have to stop there. For months I thought I was doing well until I started signing up for various CPA networks. I signed up for Maxbounty, Azoogle, and HydraMedia. After some researching I realized for the site in the example Maxbounty had the offers that converted the best and on top of that they had the best payout for those offers. This took my overall daily profit from 110 a day to 130 a day. The only reason for the 20 dollar a day increase was due to payout and if I hadn’t tried other networks and found Maxbounty I would not be making the additional 20 a day.
The main point of this article is maybe you are doing well with a CPA network, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t sign up for other CPA networks. You could be missing out on earnings due to payouts but also keep in mind that each network has its own exclusive offers. Example: You have a site that appeals to young males and you use HydraMedia only. You wouldn’t know that Maxbounty has a great converting offer that is an email signup offer for a Free Year Subscription for the 3 hottest men’s magazines. In this case Hydra doesn’t have this offer but Maxbounty does. So make sure to signup for multiple networks and don’t hesitate if you have a favorite network to ask them for a higher payout if you find out another network is paying more for the same offer.
