Over the past few months I’ve been trying to find a new ways to advertise and make money for this site in order to cover the hosting and advertising costs. While Searching I found the TNX ad network.
TNX offers an easy way for advertisers to place contextual ads and offers publishers the opportunity to earn TNX points which can be used for various purposes simply by displaying TNX text ad links on their pages. Joining TNX is free for publishers and TNX has made it a simple to join, you only input the most basic information. Publishers and Advertisers can register at here. TNX has a promo by which you get a 5,000 points free by posting on the DigitalPoint forums.
After getting the 5,000 points I started an advertising campaign using TNX. I’ve placed 1,650 links for this month on various sites using keywords I wanted to rank higher for. What I really liked about TNX for advertisers is that you can select the PR of pages on which links should be placed, but you cannot select the websites you want them to be placed on. A problem I found is that some of the links I placed aren’t being displaying on some of the websites, but I am apparently being charged for them.
As a publisher, I enjoyed the TNX system. You get 3000 points for a PR4 page, 1200 points for a PR3 page, 300+ points for a PR2 page. So if you have a site with lots of PR3+ pages, you can make a lot of points every month. Just review the links being placed though. A lot of spam links show up on pages with high PR. That is the only problem I see with TNX, but since you can delete the links that you don’t want its not that big of a problem. You can redeem points for cash payment to PayPal accounts. The “exchange-rate” is currently at $0.78 for every 1000 points.
TNX has an affiliate program where you get points based on what your affiliate referrals do. There’s a 13.3% payout percentage from the earnings of the websites of users you directly refer.
