Are you not getting the results you want from Google Adsense. It seems like I wait forever to get paid by Adsense. So, I began doing some research and found some lucrative Ad Networks for bloggers with no minimum traffic requirements. Here are some that I found and have signed up with a couple of them to try them out.
FOMO means fear of missing out. You won’t be missing out on money with FOMO because there’s no minimum payout threshold. You’ll get paid monthly regardless of how much you make. Hey, a cup of free coffee is nice!
Another great advantage of FOMO is being able to design your ads. You can change the ads shape and background colors to fit the branding of your site.
Get Paid: Monthly – No minimum payment threshold
Pros: Don’t have to worry about CTR, you get paid for impressions
Cons: Limited to ad placement and no native ads
Tip: You can run FOMO simultaneously with other Ad Agencies since their ads are contained to certain areas.
2. MONUMETRIC – Formerly the Blogger Network
If you don’t have a significant monthly pageviews yet, you can still work with a high end ad network like Monumetric. Formerly the Blogger Network, Monumetric knows the life of a blogger and works with bloggers on every level. You have to pay a small registration fee of $99 to join but are able to make it back soon after.
Get Paid: Monthly
Pros: Offer a Free Monumetric Site Audit
Cons: $99 registration fee & minimum monthly traffic requirement of 10K
3. MEDIA.NET – Yahoo, Bing Contextual AD Network
Media.net is known by many bloggers to generate more income than Adsense. You can create an customize ad units. For example, have craft ads show on your DIY Craft page. This means you are more than likely to have higher CTR. You have to request an invite to join and it takes about 2 days to hear back if you’ve been accepted. A majority of your traffic must come for the U.S. or UK.
Get Paid: Minimum payment threshold of $100 and paid once a month.
Pros: You can work one-on-one with a Media.net Ad Specialist.
Cons: No official minimum traffic number but you can still get rejected.
Is another premium ad network for that has no minimum traffic threshold for bloggers. As one of the oldest advertising companies, Chitika works with well known advertisers and will uphold the integrity of your blog. In better words, it won’t look spammy.
Get Paid: Every 30 days
Pros: No minimum criteria to join and quality ads.
Cons: Minimum threshold of $50 to get paid
Shareaholic has four ways in which bloggers can monetize their blogs. The first one is Anchor Ads at the bottom of the page. As the user scrolls down, the ads will remain at the bottom. The second ad monetization is video ads in between videos. Next, are native ads that are inlined with your related post. Lastly is auto affiliatize links which turn existing links into rewards.
Get Paid: Like Adsense, when you hit $100
Pros: Four ways to money for your blog.
No minimum traffic requirements. Any blogger can join!
Cons: You must request payment and it’s 45 days to process. You don’t get paid for Impressions it’s just per click.
If you have used Viglink than you are now with Sovrn. Sovrn has recently acquired Viglink and their new tagline is more power to publishers. With Sovrn you have a choice of display ads, native ads mobile, and video. Sovrn also has a great user dashboard called Meridian. Meridian has audience insights which rivals Google Analytics in drilling down on who your audience is.
Get Paid: 30 days – Claim to be one of the fastest in the industry.
Pros: Meridian Dashboard is a gem. No minimum traffic requirements.
Cons: $25 Minimum threshold earnings. Payment reliability concerns.
7 . Ezoic
Ezoic is not an ad network but a mediation between various networks to bid for your traffic. If you have good traffic to your site, then Mediation can help you get more money. It works on your existing ad networks and helps them bid more on your ad inventory – they make them compete! Claims to increase ad revenue +50%
Get Paid: You don’t get paid here. They help increase your ad revenue with ad network
Pros: Their is a free trail and you can have free service by placing an Ezoic ad on the bottom of your page.
Cons: They have subscription service that is paid.
If you are a blogger who blogs about anything bridal or wedding related, Brideclick is the preferred Ad Network for you. It’s a growing industry
Get Paid: NA
Pros: You can also receive leads on sponsored posts as well.
Cons: Only serving bridal and wedding related.
My picks are Media.Net with FOMO. I’ll run them simultaneously and perhaps in the future, ad Ezoic to see if their claim to get you more ad revenue is true. I submitted an application to Media.net and am waiting for acceptance. Fingers crossed!
