Making Money from Ads Networks: A How-To Guide

Making Money from Ads Networks: A How-To Guide


Getting paid to view ads online might seem far-fetched, but it’s actually quite a lucrative way to earn money from home. Though many types of ads network exist, there are only two basic ways that you can make money from them: serving as an ad publisher, or as an advertiser who pays others to display your ads on their sites. This how-to guide will walk you through the process of choosing the right ad networks, setting up your account, and working toward success in both roles.



You may have heard about how companies like Facebook and Google make billions of dollars by taking a piece of the advertising pie. The business model is simple: advertisers pay to show their ads to consumers, and the social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) take a cut. But what are these ads networks? If you're reading this guide, it's likely that you already know what an ad network is in theory but want some more information on how they work in practice.


What are Ad Networks?

Ad networks are third-party advertising networks that provide advertisers with a means to display their advertisements. They purchase space on websites, and then distribute ads across those sites. When a user clicks on one of the ads, the advertiser pays the network for having their ad viewed. 

Ad networks are often used to monetize content that has limited or no potential for generating revenue in other ways. For example, most bloggers don't have a large enough audience to generate significant income from banner ads or referral links, so they rely on ad networks instead.


Joining an Ad Network

An ad network is a company that links advertisers to websites. The company receives a commission for each impression and click on an advertisement. In order to join an ad network, you'll need three things: unique content, a website with high traffic, and the willingness to work hard.


Running the Ads

You can make money from ads networks by serving ads on your website and earning a percentage of the revenue generated. Here's how to do it.

First, sign up for an ad network like Google AdSense or Mediavine. Next, put the code they give you on your site. Then, their ads will show up on your site and generate revenue for you when people view or click on them. You'll get paid by the network every time a visitor completes one of these actions. The more visitors you have and the more ads are shown, the more money you'll make!


Making Money

I’m going to keep it simple and start with the absolute basics. There are three ways that you can make money through ads networks (also called ad exchanges): CPM, CPC, and CPA. 

CPM stands for cost per thousand impressions. This means that the network will pay you a certain amount for every 1,000 times your ad is shown on a site or app. If you have an audience of 10 million people viewing your content, then this number would be very high and you could potentially get paid a lot more than if you had an audience of 100 people. 

CPC stands for cost per click.
