Earning money in the initial days of blogging can be tough. You don’t have the traffic and there’s still a lot to do to make people visit your site which takes time.
But there are a few ways that allow you to give a kick start and make some cents (which will eventually sum up to a dollar). One of the easy ways to make money is using LinkShrink.net.
How does it work?
It allows you to shrink the internal and external links that you use in your posts and will earn you money when a visitor clicks on it. It initially shows up an ad that lasts for 5 seconds and then the visitor will have the option to continue to the intended destination. Click here to see what this looks like.
You can also share your shortened links to social networking sites. This gives them the maximum exposure and increases your earnings.
Another thing that I like about LinkShrink is that it doesn’t need any space on your site unlike AdSense.
Watch this short video below:-
You can earn from $0.48 to $8.38 for every 1000 clicks depending on the country the visitor is from which means there’s a huge potential once you know where and how you can use these to make the most of it.
The payouts are updated on a daily basis depending on how much the advertisers are willing to pay for your traffic.
The minimum balance that you should have to request a payment is $5. You can request a withdrawal via PayPal, Payza, or Bitcoin. It may take 3-5 days to process the payment.
The one reason they use Payza and Bitcoin too is to make sure people from no country is left behind. So, even if PayPal is blocked in your country, you can use either of the other two methods.
Will this affect site’s Google Rankings?
The above question pops up in my mind every time I try some new ad network and so, I made sure I get the answer before telling you guys about it or using it myself for that matter.
LinkShrink is an external ad (unlike a banner), so, it doesn’t affect your site’s Google rankings.
How to make visitors not hate you for this?
To be frank, no one likes to see ads but running a blog or a website needs finance and a lot of effort. Little earnings like this keep us motivated and allow us to share quality content.
Visitors may not like ads popping up every time they click on a link and can even leave your site but that’s when your smartness comes into the picture. You should wisely use this and not shrink all the links in a post.
You can also put a notice on the website that informs visitors about the ads so that they don’t freak out. I’ve always felt that this is a better approach and people will understand.
LinkShrink is absolutely free to join. So, go ahead and give it a try. It’s totally worth it.
