Unhappy Incentive based CPC ads

Do any of you know of any CPC networks out there that would accept a site that generates clicks based on incentives to the users?

The site in questions gets click rates of over 7%

I don't mind a low CPC, but I would like to find a reliable ad company for this sort of thing.

I highly doubt it. Advertisers don't want to spend thousands of dollars on advertising for sites that have users click banners for points, rewards, etc...where the visitors don't even care about their websites. They are just wasted clicks since users click the banners just to hit the back button on their browsers or to just close the window right away.

I think you have to find and sell, the adverts yourself to small advertisers as I doubt any ad network will want this traffic.

Don't be so sure. If advertisers weren't interested in clicks from people who aren't necessarily interested in their product, then why are there so many "error-bar" advertisements?

Thumbs up


I think that incentive-based CPC advertising is one of the most successful ways to advertise. Whoever does not think so is sorely deluded. With banner click-thrus down to 1/3 of 1%, any site that will get my site guaranteed exposure through a click-through is something that should be considered. Why, as an advertiser, would I pay 4 cents a banner impression when I am not even guaranteed a click-through? I'd rather pay 20-30 cents for guaranteed click-throughs that will at least get people on my site. That's why FreeLotto is doing so damn well.
