European performance marketing platform affilinet has just released the first in a series of intelligent advertising formats aimed at simplifying the process of making money from blogging.
Historically, unless you had a well-established and heavily trafficked site your only option to make money was Google’s AdSense solution. More recently other services have become available, but they invariably offer a limited number of Ad formats, fail to consider audience interests on an individual basis and sometimes don’t pay their bills. affilinet is different, automating both display and native advertising via its two new products, PerformanceAds and PerformanceLinks.
PerformanceAds offers display ads in most of the industry standard sizes, which means lots of advertisers will be available. These advertisers run campaigns on a CPM, CPC and a CPA basis via affilinet; this means that non-paying house ads will never run on the blogger sites. Many of these ads will also be targeted based on user behaviour and feature prices where possible, so engagement will be higher than competing solutions.
affilinet’s payment threshold is one of the lowest out there at £25/25€ meaning that smaller bloggers will get paid sooner. It is also worth knowing that the company has been going since 1997 and is owned by giant digital business United Internet (the same company that owns 1&1 and GMX), so you can rest assured that it will be running rock solid technology and will pay its bills on time.
The excitement circulating within the blogger community is palpable at this point, selected bloggers have already been invited to meetings hosted by affilinet to give initial feedback on the new solutions. Is this the moment we’ve all been waiting for? Well another viable alternative from AdSense would be nice, stay tuned for more on this.
