Payment Scheme for Affiliates

By Princejay Events

If you already created a blog and you think that the site is now ready to accept advertisers. Then enrolling to affiliate programs is not a hard task for you.

At this stage, prior to joining any site or affiliate programs, you should first understand the different payment schemes for you as a publisher. Are you ready?
There are three famous payment schemes that usually being offered to publishers:

1. Pay Per Impression

2. Pay Per Click or Paid Per Click

3. Pay Per Sale or Lead or Pay Per Referral


In CPM, you will be paid according to the number of times the Word Ad or Banner Ads is viewed or displayed on your blog or site. The amount you will earn is normally calculated based on the number of thousand impressions of the banner (impressions = number of times the banner is displayed) often abbreviated as CPM (cost per thousand, with the M being the Latin numeral for thousand). That is, $10 CPM means that you get paid $10 for 1,000 displays or views of the banner. This method will allow you to automatically earn BIG if your site attracts a lot of visitors or if you have a high traffic blog or website.


With this you will be paid when visitors click the advertiser's link, banner or graphics on your blog or website. The payment per click varies depending on the advertisers being displayed on your blog or website. The earning here is usually higher than the pay per impression scheme. You will get better results if your advertisers are carefully selected or chosen to suit the target audience of your blog or site. Make sure you are consistent on your blogs.


There are affiliate programs that you will be paid per sale, sign-up, referral or lead. On this scheme you will get the highest payment rates. But, with this, you will only earn or be paid if your visitors click the ADS and either purchase an item from the advertiser or take some other prescribed action like to sign up for a service or join the program, etc... Just like the Pay Per Click scheme, you will get much better results if you carefully select your advertisers to suit the target audience of your site.

Most affiliate programs wants to avoid wasting resources in issuing checks for very small amounts you earned from your blogs or website, advertisers will usually accumulate the payment owing you until it reaches a certain amount (such as $10, $25, $50, $100 or more) before they pay you. It's either through check, bank or money-transfer.

When you already have decided on the affiliate programs. Then your next big step is to promote or market your blog or website to get more traffic.
