Start Marketing Cams with Bing Ads

Every day, millions of people use Bing and Bing-powered search engines. In fact, over 30% of US internet searches occur outside of Google! With Bing Ads, you can create ads and bid on keywords to drive adult traffic to your website or offer, at low cost. Let's get you set up for success!

Plan your Campaign
Before getting started, you'll want to plan out your budget, targeting, and your ads. Here are some ClickCash articles about building your text links, targeting niches, and writing effective text ads to help you plan your Bing strategy and tactics.

Choose your Keywords
Bing maintains a list of approved adult keywords that you can start using that don't need editorial review. At last count, there were over 65,500 keywords on this list, many related to cams. Examples include: Free Porn, XXX Video, Live Sex Chat Cams, and Phone Sex Lines.

Your Bing account manager will provide you with the list of approved keywords, but let us know if you want a sneak peak!

But, what happens when you want to target a keyword that's not on the list? Well, you'll have to request an exception—once you've added the keyword. (Keep in mind that editorial review can take from several days to several weeks.)

To start your custom keyword research you'll want to use Bing's Keyword Planner. If you happen to be savvy with Excel spreadsheets, you can also use the powerful Bing Ads Intelligence tool to dive deeper into keyword insights.

Keyword Match Types
Bing Ads will only show your ads for search queries that match your keyword exactly, including some close variations.

Example: If your keyword is [live sex chat], only searches for live sex chat will trigger your ad. Searches for live sex chat free will not trigger your ad.

While you'll get fewer impressions with Exact match, you typically enjoy a higher click-through rate (CTR). This is because only people looking for exactly what you're advertising will see your ad!

Getting Approved
Before you can start bidding on adult keywords on Bing Ads, you'll need to have an Adult Approved account. We encourage you to review these policies to ensure your ads will be in compliance. Then fill out their Adult Advertising Program Participation Form to get started!

Marketing without a Website

One question new affiliates ask us is, "Do I need my own website to promote iFriends and earn with ClickCash?" The answer? No, you don't.

There are many ways that you can get your marketing links out there, generating clicks and signups and earning with ClickCash. Let's dive into some of your options!

Social Media
Social Media sites can be a great source of free or inexpensive traffic. Services like Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr allow you to use keywords and hashtags to reach a wider audience. All you need is a valid email address and some time, and pretty soon you'll see traffic flowing through your links. The drawback of social media marketing is that you may need a higher volume of traffic to generate signups. You will also need to keep in mind the various policies on the different sites. Facebook is particularly strict on content. They specifically frown upon explicit content or using names that are not your real name, and will close your account if they see you doing these.

Some ways that you can generate traffic on social media accounts include:
Ad Networks
Advertising networks are a quick way to promote your ClicKCash banners and links to millions of online visitors on some of the largest adult websites in the world. These websites include some of the best known Dating, Tube, VOD (Video on Demand), and PPV (pay-per-view) portals out there.

If you've never used Ad Networks, or are looking for more information, we've got you covered. Check out our Introduction to Adult Ad Networks for more information and a list of Ad Networks to try.

Email Campaigns
Email marketing can be a great way to get your promotions to people interested in adult offers. ClickCash does allow you to include email marketing in your campaigns. There are some rules, though. Luckily, we've got them all in one convenient place.

Many of our image banners work well in email campaigns to generate clicks on your links. And when you use the best landing pages, you'll quickly turn that email list into paid commissions.

Search Engine Paid Marketing
Search engines like Bing still allow you to bid on adult keywords. Inside their control panel you can manage and analyze your campaigns. Create and optimize your text ads using some of our tips. Whether you focus on short keywords or longtail keywords, make sure to use the best Call-to-Action text and send users to our optimized landing pages.

Online Forums
Forum marketing can be a great way to generate traffic through your links. After you find the forums where you want to place your links, make sure to read over that board's policies regarding posting and marketing. Some forums do not allow affiliate marketing posts, or require that you have some volume of participation before you can post links. Before you start, we recommend checking out these 12 Forum Marketing Tips!

...Why not make a site?
Seriously. Making a site is very simple. For very little money you can purchase a great domain and get it hosted for the year. After you have your own domain, install WordPress (typically included with any hosting plan for free). We have a gallery of plugins that will take you from ho-hum to WOWZA, allowing you to build your own iFriends cobrand. You can then use all the tips above to drive traffic to your website, connect users with live models, and cash in on their signups.

In Conclusion
As you can see, there's many ways to market your ClickCash tracking link without having to have a website of your own. We're happy to chat with you about any of these suggestions! Just visit us in Live Chat Support or drop us a line. We're available 24/7 to help you out!


How to build your ClickCash affiliate text links

ClickCash supports both banner ads (like our HTML, Flash, and Image creative) as well as text links. Text links can be a wonderful addition to your marketing. They allow you more customization, allowing your marketing to appear more seamless. And they're automatically responsive for mobile, tablet, and PC marketing!

Places to Use Text Links
  • Ad Network Campaigns
  • Social Media Marketing
  • As links in blog articles on your site
  • Link exchanges
  • Email marketing

Text links give you a degree of flexibility and unabtrusiveness that you may not have with traditional banner marketing.

Any page on iFriends can be turned into a ClickCash text link. Here's how to do it:
  1. Visit the iFriends page you want to use as the destination for the link.
  2. Copy the URL of the page.
  3. Visit our Custom Text Link Builder.
  4. In the Destination Page pull down, pick "Select your own destination page".
  5. Paste the iFriends URL into the text box.
  6. Click "Get the Text Link"
Our Custom Text Link Builder will generate your commission-tracking URL for you!

Converting traffic may be challenging, but are you inadvertantly sabatoging your own campaigns? We've got your traffic check! Make sure you're incorporating these 5 simple steps to truly maximize your earnings. Turn more clicks into cash.

  1. Know your Product - Get to know iFriends. Enjoy a cam show (there's a free show with a top converting model every month!) or check out other services provided by iFriends models like phone sex, high def clips, membership clubs, and more. The more you know about iFriends, the better your marketing will be.

  2. Know your Audience - You know what turns your traffic on - it's in the keywords they used to find you. Make sure you connect them immediately with what they're after. Send them to the page that features the content they're after and they'll be joining in no time.

  3. Know your Niche - Going after those long-tail searches can pay off big: the better you are at linking those users to the specific type of model they're after, the faster they'll be putting money in your pocket. While deeper niches generate less traffic, that traffic converts in much higher numbers. Do your research, learn the lingo, and you'll see a definite return on your traffic. Our dynamic creative and full page landers are customizable to spotlight any niche and help you convert those clicks into cash.

  4. Know who Converts - Connecting users immediately with a live cam model tends to convert better than sending them to a landing page. Our Model Spotlight page updates weekly to display top converting models, as does the iFriends Award Winner page, too.

  5. Know your Stats - When you use our campaign manager, your Real-Time Stats gives you up-to-the minute information about which campaigns are converting and which might need some TLC.

Understanding your ClickCash Stats

Our Summary Stats give you a week-by-week overview of your account activity. They update in real time, 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. There's a lot of info in your stats, so let's review what it all means with an example:

Let's pretend these are your stats for this week:

Raw Signups
You generated 17 signups during the current week. Awesome! Raw signups include paid AND potential signups.

A Potential Signup means that your referral needs to take extra steps before you get paid. These extra steps include spending money in live chat, if your users joined with your Pay Per Signup (PPS) or Revenue Share (Revshare) links. For Pay Per Email Signup (PPES) links, your referral must click on a link in the email iFriends sends them to verify their account.
Paid Signups
You were paid a commission for 12 signups during the current week. Way to go!

We track your referrals from the moment they click your link to the day they join the site and complete all the steps needed for you to get paid. That's why you'll often see a commission for a user that initially clicked on your links in the past week, month, or year(s), or that signed up previously but just now took the extra steps needed for you to get paid (this potential signup becomes a paid signup).

Raw Hits
You generated 5779 clicks on your affiliate links during the current week. Great job!

Each time your link(s) are clicked we record and count them up here. Repeated clicks from a single person are counted here.
Unique Hits
You generated 4800 unique clicks on your affiliate links during the current week.

Each time your link(s) are clicked we record it, BUT repeated clicks from a single person are not counted here. That’s why they are called Unique Hits, duh!

Stats are super easy to use, but if you need any help or clarification, just visit us in Live Chat Support or drop us a line. We know our stuff and are pretty friendly, too.
