Earning money through Adf.ly

Adf.ly is a site which allows you to shorten your URL, it is no different from bit.ly, tinyurl.com or goo.gl. However it does differ because they have ad twist. When ever someone opens the short url there is a 5 second frame which shows an ad. The timing is very short and thus majority of the people using this service don't mind the wait in return for using the system.

How Adf.ly works?

I have given you an overview of the working of AdFly, there are some questions left why adf.ly pays you and how adf.ly itself make money. To make it more clear let us take an example. Think of an advertiser who wants to sell his product. So he want more visitors to see his business or buy his product: AdF.ly is the solution for the advertiser. Let's check out the complete working of AdF.ly:

Advertiser pays money to Adf.ly to show his site to visitors of any specific country or the whole world. Let's say advertiser paid $1 for 1000 views. Adf.ly takes a cut. Let's say Adf.ly takes $0.2.
Adfl.y shows the advertisement (of advertiser's business or product) for 5 seconds when a visitor clicks on publisher's links. Publisher gets rest of $0.8 for 1000 visits on his link.

How much money can I make?

The Adf.ly pays up to $9.00 for 1000 views, $9.00 may sound small, but just think for a second. How many people use Facebook? Over 500 million people use Facebook on a daily basis. If you could get even a small portion of Facebook users to click on your link or url, you could be earning a tidy amount of money. A great way to attract lots of users to click on your links is to set up a Facebook group. Many of these groups have more than a million users - so if you get your thinking cap on, you can make good money very quickly!!!. You can also make more money by making videos and post them to Youtube and leave a link in the description, BUT wait wait... YouTube updated their terms of service and by new you can't post any url to your description which can earn money for you. My opinion is to make Wix free website and post there your Adf.ly link (I'm doing the same, click here for proof).
