You Can Make BANK With PPV Advertising

by Bryn Youngblut on January 5, 2009

I’ve been hesitant to talk about this since not many people do but I think there is lot’s of room in the space so without further adue…

PPV (Pay Per View) is also known as contextual advertising and not many people talk about it, and I have being hesitant too also. Why you may ask? Because it is incredible. You can literally spend $20 and make over $1000 which is a pretty sweet ROI.

PPV is technically Adware, not to get confused with spyware. Adware comes from an ad supported program that a user installed onto their PC, which they agreed to when installing it. PPV allows you to not only bid on keywords but also domains.

Example of setting up a PPV Campaign

The most common ad shown is a full screen popup or if you want popunder.

So let’s say for instance you want to promote a email submit giving away a free Apple  iPhone.

For your keywords (I personally prefer targetting websites over keywords) you would be smart to target websites such as:

  • etc…

You can see where I’m going with this.

What will happen is when someone with the adware installed visits one of those websites, your popup will come up with your iphone offer. The conversion rate on something like this would be pretty high, and even if it’s low the bids are usually so rediculously cheap (0.0015 cents) that it won’t matter.

That’s really all there is too it, you can set up new campaigns in literally minutes. The only annoying part is waiting for them to get approved which is usually 1 business day.

What PPV networks should I use?

I personally recommend the following three:

  1. Zango
  2. Media Traffic
  3. Clicksor

You should sign up for all 3 because it can take a few days to get approved.

I’ve learned a few nice tricks while playing around with various PPV networks which I will share shortly so stay tuned for more.

Awesome! I’ve never experimented with PPV (or even really understood it), but it sounds pretty cool.

Thanks man… I’m gonna test out a couple different things.


5 Chris January 6, 2009 at 10:45 am

Personally I found PPV was much more successful 1 year ago, however it’s still profitable :)

The only traffic types I’m aware of was search traffic, content traffic and social media traffic. I didn’t know about about this traffic type.

Bryn, it sure sounds convincing but maybe some numbers and figures of your own experiment/campaign may give more light to your claims?

You say its pay per view, do that means you’re charged evertime when the popunder contains your offer?

Hera are few more questions that I’m wondering about

What do you need to setup a PPV/CPV campaign?
landing page? banners?

How about example of popunder offer looks like?

Bryn Youngblut Reply:

It’s really basic, essentially all you need is the offer you want to promote and keywords/websites you want to target. You don’t need banners just direct link or your own landing page.

I applied to MediaTraffic and they are in Canada.

Which network has been great for you?


Niche Affiliate Marketings last blog post..2008 My First Big Year in Affiliate Marketing


Bryn Youngblut Reply:

Out of those 3 my favourite would be Zango.


8 Niche Affiliate Marketing January 6, 2009 at 1:31 pm

I went a head and created campaign on media traffic. Will see what happens?

As for the keywords and domains, how many we need to have in order to et some traffic? Right now I’m bidding 3 high traffic domains and 3 high traffic keywords. I just want to test my campaign before I open the flood gates.

How does the volume on say Zango compare with Google?

xentechs last blog post..Hostgator Web Hosting Review


Bryn Youngblut Reply:

I don’t think you can really compare the two.


xentech Reply:

Sorry I worded that very poorly, what I mean is with relatively small niches on Google do you think you could still get worthwhile traffic using PPV, or is this to be used for more popular niches only?


Bryn Youngblut Reply:

Yes they have a very high amount of volume. Even with smaller niches I have found there to be good volume.

I have been wondering about PPV. Haven’t given it much of a try, but I think I will. Great tip on using site targeting for campaigns and not just search.


16 Zephyrm January 18, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Zango’s traffic is large but be careful what sponsors you use it for as some will term you for using it as they see it being *spyware*. I agree with some of the other posts, it was a lot more valuable 1-2 years ago.


17 Jamie January 21, 2009 at 3:48 pm

Can you give some good suggestions for what type of offers to promote?


Bryn Youngblut Reply:

Anything with a payout over $10

the only question I have is how many people actually downloaded their search engine.

I have found it incredible how the “nouveau” advertising industry has mangled good principled advertising. “Pay Per View” should have been the model all along … but NOT as presented above.

Above, the author calls “Pop-under” advertising as well as “Pop-over” advertising “Ad ware” (as opposed to ‘malware’ or ‘spyware’) but we’ve always considered these techniques to be “How to Tell if Your Web Site Sucks.”

Because the web industry prostituted itself by bottom-feeding the ad industry to PPC and PPP standards they’ve become a stab in the back for the publisher.

We have taken a different approach. It’s more honorable, and with sufficient traffic and valid content, it can be more profitable — and that’s “Advertising”.

Yes, in the truest sense of the term, that’s pay for ad space and the publisher delivers X number of viewers or subscribers. Simple, eh? Under this system, the publisher can be successful, and the advertiser can be successful. It’s been proven for more than 200 years.

Take for instance the Wall-Street Journal. You pay for your ad, and their entire readership sees it. Consider the Super Bowl game. You pay your $3-million and your ad is seen by dozens of millions.

Can you imagine how stupid it would be if the WSJ or Super Bowl sold their advertising on a “pay per click” or “Pay per sale” basis? Well, obviously there would be NO WSJ or Super Bowl game.

We are one of the few web sites returning to this integrity model. We were tired of sending hundreds of thousands of views and clicks to advertisers for pocket change.

If you think your content and page space has some value, then you might drop the Affiliate myth and PPC myth and adopt the ‘real’ “pay per view” or “per pair of eyes” advertising model and start getting paid what you are worth in stead of prostituting your efforts for a few pieces of change.

’nuff said
