Clickbank Secrets: A Profitable Native Ads Affiliate Marketing Case Study
Revcontent is my favorite native ad network by far. I love them for multiple reasons.
One, I like cheap traffic… and they have PLENTY of it.
Two, they’re very lenient on what you can run. As long as you’re not promoting anything illegal or making ridiculous claims that you can’t prove… you’re golden.
NOTE: They’ve recently cracked down on advertisers making claims in their ads and on their landing pages. Be very careful when creating your ad copy and landing page copy.
Three, they don’t charge you based on where you’re sending the traffic. Some native ad networks have three different tiers of pricing. Here they are in order of least expensive to most expensive: Non-Advertisement, Advertorial, and Advertisement.
Revcontent doesn’t do that. They don’t care if you’re sending traffic to a squeeze page, a blog post, or even a sales page. The CPC’s stay the same.
Before I dive into the case study, I want to briefly explain what native ads are just in case you’re not entirely sure.
Native Ads Explanation
In short, native ads are ads that blend in to the content that’s surrounding them. They’re supposed to look like more content.
These ads are typically displayed on content-heavy sites like Forbes, Washington Examiner, and Newsweek. Take a look at the image below:
I’m sure you’ve seen ads like this. You can typically find these ad blocks at the bottom of a blog post or in the sidebar of a blog. They’re all across the internet.
Some of the more popular native ad networks are Taboola, Outbrain, and Yahoo Gemini. While those networks are great, they’re pretty pricey (on a “per click” basis).
There are many other less expensive native ad networks you can use though. My three favorites are Revcontent, as you already know, MGID, and Content.Ad.
Content.Ad is one of those networks that charges you based on what type of page you’re sending the traffic to.
What’s cool about these two networks though is, they don’t care if you’re a product owner or an affiliate.
In fact, in the image above, 4 out of 8 of those ads are affiliate ads. And, one of those ads is promoting the product I promoted in this case study.
