PPP

Hi – at the moment I’m not promoting the “Pay Per Play” program because it just doesn’t seem to be doing too well. So I am updating this post here.

In the field of Internet Marketing I think it is important to be continuously aware of and willing to try new concepts and new ideas. Some of them turn out well, some turn out to be one of the best ideas since the Slip-E-Slide, some turn out to be a waste of time, and some just don’t turn out as well as they could have because the people behind the idea don’t follow through or take enough positive action to make a product truly valuable.

While the original concept of Pay Per Play did seem to have been been well thought out, the fact is that it didn’t seem to carry forward as it could have.

In the meanwhile, other streams of online income which I have been developing, have been successful, and are growing. And though it isn’t overnight, the streams of residual and recurring income which I have been developing are growing, month after month. This includes mainly Amazon affiliate earnings, Google Adsense earnings, Freelancing, and the promotion of a few other affiliate programs I have been involved with.

Therefore I have been focusing my attention on these more successful actions, so that I can push them through and increase them.

Thank you all for your comments and feedback on this subject!

    Hello Eryone,
    I don’t even have my website up yet,still trying to figure out what I am going to promote. I also work fulltime, and have a 4-yr old and I find It hard to find time and when I lose my focus, sometimes It Is hard to just sit down and do It.
    I probably need to sit down and make a list of step by step things to do.
    I am already signed up with ppp Internet Audio Ads.
    My questions are…
    1. How can you Insert ppp code or adlet Into Image Ad?
    2. How do You Insert this code Into Blogs?
    3. Can You use ppp on Myspace In an image ad?
    Im gonna get this or die trying!

    Hello Carolyn, thank you for stopping by my blog. Regarding your questions:

    1. I am not sure what you mean by inserting the PPP ads into an image ad. There is no image in a PPP Ad.

    To add a PPP Ad to your website or blog, you first find the PPP code. You can find this when you log on to your NetAudio Ads account.

    Once you have found the code, you insert it into your webpage or into your blog, in the same way you would insert any html code for any ad.

    If you have a blog with blogger.com, you insert it into a widget which is for “inserting HTML or Javascript.” On WordPress, you insert it into a “text” widget. On a webpage, you simply insert it in the bottom. I always put mine near the bottom so I don’t get it confused with other things.

    2. Answered above

    3. On MySpace I have heard that you can but I don’t know how it works and I was not able to figure it out. I read the Terms and Conditions of MySpace and it doesn’t seem they want you to run your own ads, but I may be missing something … I suggest you contact NetAudio Ads and ask them about it, and also contact MySpace if needed.

    But if your MySpace profile is not getting a lot of traffic yet you could always put this off till later and first experiment with using it on your own sites.

    I hope this helps, thanks again for stopping by my blog and I hope you come again. I do want to help other people get off the ground and I have many posts and pages planned for the future. (I need more time! :grin:)

    This is very good information Anna. Paying out on 3 tiers has a huge upside.

    I can imagine you could potentially get paid off of millions of pay per play ads if you referred enough people.

    While 5 seconds seem like it probably would not drive people away, I wonder if 5 seconds is really enough time to get your message across and because of the short message, viewers may just tune it out until it is over.

    I also think, that 5 seconds are not enough, but anyway its a very good idea, and I am going to register. Thanks for useful information.

    Frankly it doesn’t seem to be turning out so well! I left my code on because it looked like it might be a good future investment … but what you say is correct. I have about $25 in my account but then I got a somewhat unprofessional email asking for a scan of my W9 form so payment could be issued. I heard rumor lines of identity theft on that one … wattamess! I originally felt relatively optimistic about it because of the fact that Charles Heflin was behind it. Now I’m like … I dunno.

    I think the important thing is to always be open to possibilities, particularly when you don’t have to invest up front, and as long as you stay alert. You never know if something is going to flop or become the next big thing. This way to don’t lose great opportunities but also don’t lose money etc to those that don’t pan out.

    I said $25. However to be honest I have not paid attention to PPP in a while, I’ve been meaning to check back on it and update this post as needed. I’m not sure that PPP is doing so well. The concept seems fine but at this point it seems to be taking forever to amount to anything. So I will update the post when I have more information.

    Thanks for your comment Mike. Although I have to say, my Adsense and affiliate earnings have been increasing month after month. I always just focus on what I need to do, what is successful and what isn’t. Of course one should keep world trends in mind and act accordingly. It probably also has something to do with choosing a niche which has a rising trend or a promising future in today’s society. (Google trends can be a good tool in this respect.) I am sure that if you take all factors into account, do good research, and are willing spend what time you need to on trial-and-error, you will continue to come out on top.

    Greetings,

    Yes, I agree, similar story here, I liked the concept, not only from a users standpoint, but also from an advertisers view given I work several businesses which would make an impact in 5 seconds, so I was not happy to see this go no where all these months.

    I thought for sure when Pickens ads were playing, and a few political ones on my sites, it was ready, and now, nothing, no updates I am aware of, and with under a $100. in account, it is hardly worth any promotional efforts.

    With Adsense revenues down the toilet, as expected over past year, I was hoping PPP would pick up where Google left off. I am amazed at how ineffective Adwords has been over past year as well, so like everything on the internet, it is constantly changing.

    Where I was doing well with affiliate programs, this too has dropped off, and the reason you see so many fire sales from all the affiliate guru’s of past few years. lol This recession is near depression levels now, so I have shifted all my focus on recession proof businesses.

    Success to all,

    But I think we should set limits to advertisments on our websites. Because if we have to many ads on the web, in some years really no one will click on them. They’ll be “resistent”. (like the all known banner-blindness)

    @ Anja – I understand your point. But truthfully, I don’t think it has to go that way. Because ads, when run correctly, are actually helpful and are a service to the site visitor as well. Think about it – whenever we come across an ad or a link to an excellent service or product which will help us, we are usually pretty happy. As a consumer, I would be lost if no one advertised! You have to keep things in perspective. As long as ads are done tastefully, are relevant, and are well-balanced with good content, they are actually useful.

    I’m not to happy with PPP myself, CPA has actually given a better ROI on my websites. I don’t want to bombard my visitors with too many ads, but you got to pay the hosting bills somehow.
