CMF Ads : Why I Love It

UPDATE: It is no longer available.

CMFAds – Blog advertising, low cost, high value

I joined CMFAds a few years back (can’t exactly remember when). At first I was sceptical about CMFAds. After all I was earning peanuts (seriously that’s what I thought back then!). Then again, I realised I should not expect to get rich overnight with CMFAds. It is not about the money. It is about the exposure for my blogs.

After all exposure is what CMFAds about (blog advertising, low cost, high value). This is not “get rich quick” so you have to be patient and persevere. It is difficult for me not to love CMFAds.

#1 Blog Advertising at Low Cost

I can get 50 unique clicks for just $0.20 (it means I get 50 unique people to visit my blog).

For as low as $0.30, I can get 10,000 page views (impressions). This is known as Network ads. While it is not guaranteed that people will click on the ad, at least my blog banner makes appearance 10,000 times (often a little more) on the blogs with CMFAds code.

The latest ad available is known as Fireworks (Firework Ads). Get 50 unique clicks for $1.00. It is different from Spikes because you don’t have to click on the ad to earn money. You earn money when other people (anyone, not just members of CMFAds) click on a Firework ad on your site. The rate – $0.008 (4 times the rate of clicking on Spikes, and you don’t even have to click).

#2 Earn Money The Easy Way

Click, click, click… That’s all you have to do.

At the rate of $0.002 per click (also known as Spike), you might think, “meh, it is not worth my time”.

Then again, why not give it a try especially if you are on the internet most of the time?

You just have to click and it’s like one second per click.

If you have Firework Ad Code on your site, you earn money when people click on the Firework ad on your site.

#3 A Supportive Community

CMFAds Forum is a great place to hang out, especially if you are the type who likes to hang out in a forum.

Max Banner Ads Plugin

Max Banner Ads plugin has been around for some time but this is the first time I get to try it out.

I am curious to know just how this plugin can help me rake in more $$$ every month.

I am sure everyone would like to earn more money on the internet so Max Banner Ads plugin is definitely a must-try.

The best feature of all: rotating banner ads.

Imagine the hassle I have to go through to make sure that the banner ads on my blog are updated.

Removing banner ads is easy but adding new ones is the challenge. There is the code or link and then there is the image link and so on.

Now I can chunk every banner ads on my blog and the plug in would do the magic by rotating the banner ads so that my readers won’t be seeing the same banner ads for a long time.

The tracking feature is good. I would like to analyse the clicks and all to make sure that I am fully monetizing every opportunities I have. Wouldn’t want to let go of the $$$.

We don’t need a lot of reasons to use a good plugin when only one reason is all we need.

Max Banner Ads Plugin should be on your list if you want to earn more money using banner ads.

Triond: Revisit

It has been a long time since I checked my Triond account.

In fact, I think I have almost given up on Triond.

Triond is my first platform to earn passive income, followed by Bukisa.

After long hours of working on different projects, I decided to take a peek at my account and there was a surprise waiting for me.

I have been given 2 badges – something like a recognition. I felt so good seeing these badges, knowing that Triond has improved (moving forward).

Finally, something to motivate me!

The best part of all, I have $1.14 pending, to be paid on 10th September 2010. It is not much, but something I gain from practically doing nothing for Triond in the past six months.

It is time to be active on Triond once again.

Do you want to join Triond?

Using PayPal as Saving Account

Sign up for PayPal and start accepting credit card payments instantly.

PayPal is worldwide trusted. PayPal is useful when you want to shop internationally (online) and receive payment.

I am going to talk about using PayPal as a saving account.

If you are having a personal account, you can treat your account as a saving account especially if you are one of those who can’t save money in a local bank.

Advantages of using PayPal account as a saving account:

  • The chances of being able to keep your money in PayPal is higher because it would take some time for withdrawal (therefore, you won’t get the rush to withdraw your money)
  • Even if you do withdraw the money, you will have to wait at least 2 to 3 days to get the money in your hand.
  • A back up in case of emergency (running out of money from your local bank account, need extra money for other purposes or something else).

Disadvantages of using PayPal account as a saving account:

  • You won’t be earning interest from the money you keep in your account (not like local savings account).

Who is suitable to use PayPal as a saving account?

  • People who are dealing with international transactions (buying / selling)
  • People who have international business (receiving foreign currencies)

* If you do not belong to any of these categories, you are not suitable to use PayPal as a saving account.

** PayPal is NOT really a saving account. It is the way you use it that matters.

Western Union Google Adsense Payment

*For Malaysians

I have recently closed my Google Adsense account so that I can open a new account (due to personal reason).

I have earned less than $100 but Google said that they will pay out whatever I have earned within 90 days.

After waiting for some time and no news from Google, I sent them an email asking about the payment and they replied that the payment is already processed.

They gave me the MCTN (Money Control Transfer Number) and asked me to get the cash from any Western Union agent.

I went to the local CIMB but unfortunately, the bank is under renovation, so it is not operating.

None other banks nearby offer Western Union service but there is a post office, which bears the Western Union logo.

So, without waiting any further, I went to the post office and asked about the Quick Cash service.

Yes, they do have Quick Cash service.

What you need to know?

1. Please photocopy your IC (one copy).

2. Write down your MCTN and Google’s information, if you can’t print out the info. You will need to write these information in the form. MCTN is the most important so don’t write wrongly.

I filled in the form, took a number and waited for my turn.

When it was my turn to go to the counter, I passed the form, waited for a while, and then the lady said,

“Our system is offline right now. Please wait for a while.”

I had been so excited about getting the money and this really turned me off. Nevertheless, I waited, patiently.

After 10 minutes, she called and gave me the money. It wasn’t much but it was enough to make me happy.

Overall, Adsense payment through Western Union is indeed a better choice.
