PayPerPlay Audio Advertising

I’m always looking for new ways to make money online. I’ll try anything at least for a trial run, so I have joined AudioAdHosting that promise a new way to make money online.

Audio Ads

What if you could earn from every visitor that visited your website? Sounds too good to be true, I agree. Pay-Per-Play is a new ad service, instead of contextual ads, you display a code that is an audo ad.

Each audio ad is 5 seconds long from companies like HBO, Taco Bell and others. This sounds like a great idea, I’d obviously love to get paid for every visitor to our site. Is this “revolutionary idea” before it’s time?

Can it Work?

The reason why television and radio ads are successful is because people are listening. How about those who don’t have speakers or aren’t turned on? How could you be paid for those advertisers? If you are, how are they able to make money on that to be able to keep this system alive?

I’ve also been promised this before. Places like The Newsroom have been big busts for me. I’ve received several 100 views, clicks etc, but am under 1$ in earnings.

So how much will I be paid for every visitor?
Funny thing is I can’t find that anywhere! They tell you, that you can earn for every visitor but not how much. It could be 100$ or a fifth of a penny. How much really depends in this situation.

I’ve also had “technical difficulties” where instead of a commercial all I hear is an annoying scrambling.

It can work…

Pay-Per-Play is an interesting idea that can be fine tuned to really work. However, they jumped the gun in releasing their services. On their login page you see

“We are STILL making extensive database changes this week. We have not resumed posting new hit counts yet, that comes next.”

Why would I run this service and trust that it will make me money? The information and overall service at this time is lacking. I hope they make some big changes soon and get out of their seeming beta stage and really step it up.

However, it can’t hurt to register it’s free. Try Pay-Per-Play ads and tell me what you think about it.

    I’m sure this would work for some sites, but not for most. The first thing someone usually does when they’re shocked by sound upon arriving at a page is leave.

    I would not use this on a blog because it’s pretty unprofessional and would probably tick off my readers. I know it would annoy me if I heard it on another site. The only thing I would consider using it on is my personal Myspace profile, but only depending on how much it pays – because it might not even be worth it then.
