The Monetization Alternatives

I come across a myriad of money making options everyday.  Many are the usual – PPC networks, mlm scams and a new banner network seems to pop up everyday.  But a few do interest me and here are a couple of alternative monetization tools I have found:

Ziddu – I don’t know if these guys were the first but I like em.  Basically Ziddu is a file sharing site similar to RapidShare, which gives you free file hosting.  But Ziddu actually pays you everytime someone downloads a file.  So if you’ve got a popular file, think about uploading it to Ziddu next time.

LinkBucks – Once again, these guys weren’t first in there field but…LinkBucks pays you everytime someone leaves your site.  Basically they chuck an intermission ad in between your site and the destination.  Yes it could be annoying but it could also work quite well on some sites.  I had lots of success chucking the ad code on a popular forum I own.

AdCamo – This one is yet to launch (or relaunch) yet the concept is great.  Basically they turn the background on your site into one big ad!  Sounds silly?  Yes, but CollegeHumor.com has been doing this very successfully for a while.  Stay tuned for this one.

Make sure you follow me on Twitter guys – its were I give away free GoDaddy.com Gift Cards and Domains!

    Google Adsense rocks. I don’t think of any other.

    Hey thanks for these….. never heard of any of them but the one that opens an ad when someone leaves sounds interesting.

    If any of my niche sites take off it could be perfect.

    These little money makers can take up your time if you are not careful. I think if you find something that works, you should stick to it and do whatever it takes to make it work. Thanks for the tip.

    Interesting Matt. I too had never heard of any of them. I’ll let you know if I take part and what happens after :)
