Adf.ly is an URL shortening service, such as bit.ly and goo.gl but with one little twist, you can make money from every link you create! Adfly is an Internet-based program that allows you to earn money posting links.
How does adf.ly work?
Adf.ly is simply a link shortening service that serves ads in every link that you create. For every ad in your links that someone sees you will make money. The ad shows for 5 seconds before you can click “skip ad” and continue to the links destination. The amount of money you make is about $0.5 to $4.7 per thousand views as I’m writing this article. Below are some ways on how to make money online with ad.ly. Displaying interstitial ads Displaying interstitial ads in your links is the highest paying alternative. If you shrink a link with an interstitial advertisement in it people will see full screen advertising before they can continue to the links destination. The advertisement lasts for 5 seconds before the alternative of skipping it becomes available for the viewer.
Using a framed banner
Using a framed banner is a less “painful” alternative for everyone that clicks on your link. This is because the ad will not take up the whole screen; instead it will only show a banner at the top of the browser. However, you will not make as much money with this alternative as you would have done by using interstitial ads.
Full page scripts
Even though I’d advice not to use full page scripts it is still a service offered by adf.ly. Full page scripts is a code snippet that you place in your websites code to change all of your links to adf.ly links. Doing so will make your users have to watch an ad every time they click on a link at your website. Sure, if you have thousand of visitors per day you can make some money with this, but you will most likely piss of everyone trying to browse your website.
Get referrals to do the hard work
If you do not want to do the hard work yourself then get some “slaves” to do the work for you. Adf.ly has a referral program that grants you 20% of your referrals earnings for life. So if you’re a famous person or has a great way to get referrals online this is for you. If you get about 100 referrals that are all making about $1 per month this will automatically get $20 per month without any work. It may not seem like a lot but money quickly adds up and if you have any good idea on how to get people to click on your own links you could be earning well over $50 per month simply by creating links. If you run a website or blog you could simply put up one of their banners on your site and if anyone clicks on them and signs up you will get a referral.
Making money with
Adf.ly Finally I’m getting to the point! I suppose you mainly came here to get ideas on how to make money with adf.ly and therefore I am going to list a few ways that I made my first $50 with when I used adf.ly.
Post on forums
If you know how a forum works then you will also know that there are plenty of forums out there that gets millions of views every month with hundreds of thousands members. Let’s say you know where to fins great Photoshop graphics, so you sign up with a design forum. You then create an adf.ly link to these graphics (it could be anything from Photoshop brushes to logo designs). Then you cleverly create a thread on the forum saying something like “Free logo designs for your website” with a little bit information and maybe some pictures of the logos inside. Then you place your Adf.ly link in the thread and say that they can download them from that site. If you do this actively you can get thousands of clicks on your links each day. This can be done in various forums, as long as you have something that the rest of the users want, for example eBooks, software, videos and so on. Sing UP New on ADF.ly
