paid to click – how i made $8.18 per click

Wait a minute, $8 a click? What? All right, pay attention because over the last few days, I’ve been watching tons of videos about how to make money per click. Some of them are talking about how you can make 40 cents a click, 50 cents a click, or even $10 a click or $1,000 a day. And what we’re going to do is talk about, well, is that stuff actually true? And second, we’re going to talk about a real method that actually works.

And to show you that I know what I’m talking about, I’m actually going to go over here and reload this page that shows how much I’m making per click. Now, it doesn’t break it down, but you can do the math. We can use a little calculator here and do $286,000 over roughly 35,000 clicks, which brings us to about $8 and 18 cents each and every click.

But does this mean that you’re guaranteed to make $8 for each and every click you generate on your website? Of course not. We got to take this with a grain of salt and look at the devil in the details. Pay attention because this can make lots of money. And I’ve been doing this exact same thing for over 23 years, and this is actually one of my smaller accounts. Smash that like button, and let’s dive in.

First, let’s take a look at what these other people were saying. I found some screenshots of a guy here that made $116 and he got $23, another guy who made 43 cents off of 89 views. It’s like a half a penny of view. Or this one here that made like $10 off of 2,500 clicks, $4 from about 1,000 clicks, and on and on we go.

Most of these people are not making much money because most of these people are using website that pay for generic traffic. And remember, the more generic your traffic is, the less you’re going to make.

Wait a minute. What did he just say? Strike that. Reverse it. Because if you could take generic traffic and flip it into specific traffic, you could literally increase the value of the click automatically with no cost to you. It’s exactly how I got over $8 a click on this one promotion method.

And the problem here is that these websites don’t pay a whole lot. Here’s one that says it pays $8 per 1,000 views or 1,000 clicks. And these are known as paid link shortener programs. Again, I never use this kind of stuff because they pay so low. This one here says it pays $8 per 1,000 views. Here’s another one that says $7 per 1,000

Get Easy Traffic

Flip The Market

Interactive Information Arbitrage

And if we take some of these URLs and put them into similar web, we can kind of get an idea of what’s being made here. If they’re saying that their top payout is $7 per 1,000 views and they’re getting 514,000 views a month, you can do the math here and see that the entire site is only making $3,500 a month.

Wait, what? Where’s all that big money people are talking about. Yep. Again, that’s why you have to look at this with a grain of salt. Here’s one that does $8 per 1,000 views, $8, $15, $5, and on and on we go. And I’ve included some of the traffic statistics so that you could see exactly what’s going on. This one has zero traffic, so I don’t think they’re making a whole lot. And some of them that are promising $14 per 1,000 views, again, not a whole lot of traffic there.

And you could see tons and tons of companies that are touting to pay you for all the clicks you generate with their link shortening service. There’s a lot of them. And the problem with link shortening services is what they are doing is they are being the middleman. They are going to take traffic from your website, put their ads on it, and then direct them to the site that you want them to go to. This is going to diminish the value of your traffic. And at the end of the day, you’re not going to make much money at all because, let’s face it, getting 1,000 visitors isn’t that easy to do unless, of course, you know what you’re doing and you’re getting paid a lot of money. More about that in just a minute.

Instead of using a link shortener service, what I’m going to do is something I like to call flip the market. Flipping the market is where we take a generic term, people looking for something, and flip them to something that pays more money. Let me show you a simple example.

Earlier this morning, I bought this domain name for $50, These are people looking for different colored braces for their teeth. And I don’t know if you’ve ever had kids, but braces are pretty darn expensive. And I’m thinking, okay, this has a lot of traffic and rankings for all different types of words related to braces. And most people are going to say, “Well, Marcus, you know what? If you go here and you type in lavender power chain braces, we can see the competition is low and it actually doesn’t give us an amount per click because it’s so low there’s probably no one bidding on this term.”

And that’s where most people are just going to settle for $7 or $15 per 1,000 clicks. But no, not me, because flipping the market has to do with thinking different, and thinking different has to do with what keywords pay the most money on paid search engines. If we were to go to Google and search for something like colored braces, you’re going to see that the amount of people advertising is pretty small. There’s only two ads for here in Orlando, which is why we’re seeing here a lot of low competition on the paid search side.

However, if I type in dental insurance, we can see tons of ads up on the top, a bunch of ads on the bottom and ads on page two and three, and on and on we go. And, according to the Google Ad word’s keyword planner, some of these guys are paying over $100 a click. You’re telling me advertisers are paying $100 for one click on their website? Yea

Here Are Some HIGH Paying Keywords

In that case, my job is actually very simple. What I’m going to do is take these people looking for different colored braces, talk to them about how dental insurance can lower the cost of the braces, get them to click, and make lots of money, which is exactly what I did with the web hosting market. I got all different types of people looking for how to build a blog. And you can see here how to build a blog is not that competitive. However, when we type in the word web hosting, these guys are paying tons of money.

Now, it’s important to point out that I didn’t make $8 for every single click that went to this website, I got $8 for every click that went to this website. There is a little bit of drop off, and this is what’s known as the effective EPC, the effective earnings per click. We call it effective because it’s not on all the clicks, it’s on the clicks on this website. If I was able to get 1,000 clicks to website one, and then one out of every 10 clicked over to website two, the $8 a click now becomes 80 cents overall. And even at an effective EPC of only 80 cents, we would still be making $800 for every 1,000 visitors compared to these sites over here that are making $4, $10, or maybe even $15 for the same amount of traffic.

And when it comes to flipping the market, this is actually a very simple concept. What we need to do is take a keyword that people are searching for and link it to something that makes lots of money. For example, we can take leaky toilet and lead it to plumbers, which pays a lot of money. Or maybe we can do mortgage calculator and lead it to refinance, or what to do after a car accident and lead it to car accident attorneys, or how many drinks a week makes me an alcoholic and lead it to recovery. And the key is to make very good websites based on what people are searching for with good information.

Then we’re going to take that website, have some kind of banner or click that says for more information about car accident attorneys or more information about refinance, or whatever it is you’re flipping the market to, and lead them to that thing that pays you lots of money. And using this example, I was able to bank almost $300,000 with simple web hosting.

Now, in addition to that, I made millions of dollars on other offers, but you can see how this works. And the key is to think long term what is it these people are actually going to want? And if you want to learn more about that, check out the links in the description because I got two more videos that go deeper into this topic.

    Hi Marcus, I’m a little confused about flipping the market and leading them to a different offer. Maybe those two other videos you mentioned will make it clearer for me.
