As we always deliver you excellent quality tips, here is an ultimate tip for making money from the advertisements.
You must have noted, this website uses only Lake Quincy Media‘s advertisements. We got our first payment few days back, we were waiting for this time when we will get the first money and write for our readers.
Who are eligible for Lake Quincy Media
Only professional grade, high quality and relevance, with least 10,000 page views per month blogs or websites having content that is of value to the developers or codings. All applications undergoes vigorous manual checking. You can apply if you write nice, detailed, unique tutorials for coding stuffs in your blog. We guess LQ will approve good WordPress developers too.
It is difficult to get in, but once in, you will be satisfied.
There is a field asking the referral during signup process, we used Ankur’s website (Windows8Beta) as he informed us about Lake Quincy. You can use our website’s name as referral, if you want, but kindly check whether your blog / website fulfills the above mentioned criterion before applying.
Pay rates and Advertisement formats?
It is a CPM type Advertisement network. Exceptionally high pay rates. Atleast you will earn double that of Google Adsense. The Advertisement formats are:
468×60 Standard Banner
336×280 Large Rectangle
300×250 Medium Rectangle
160×600 Skyscraper Wide
There are many other types of custom advertisement units; like Dog Ear ads, Sponsored White Papers, Text Link ads, Video Sponsorship, Product Showcases, E-newsletter placements etc.
Increase in clicks will optimize your pay rates as click through rate will be increased too. Publisher compensation is paid at a rate of 50% of the gross value of every advertisement shown on the member site multiplied by each advertisement’s share of impressions that was shown on the member site.
We tried to contact with other Advertisement companies we used ago. Frankly for Google adsense, they will not hear you if you are a small to medium size website. DexMedia responses, but late. Others never responded (Technorati media, Adbrite etc).
Lake Quincy Media has high quality few website / blogs and Christina Green is the person who (generally) replies for any support. We must say, she is very polite and responds within 4-5 hours.
Payments are made by check or via Paypal NET 60 from the end of the month in which the compensation was earned. As a rule, members are only sent payment via check when their total balance exceeds $100 or $10 via PayPal.
Very easy to understand reporting system for the past days. Impression, number of clicks and money earned are shown by date.
