Flipmsg URL Shortener vs Other URL shorteners that makes you money
There are many URL shorteners out there that makes you money, but none of them is similar to the Flipmsg URL shortener.
This URL shortener is unique, it’s not like any other URL shortener.
All of the other shorteners out there that let you earn are CPM based, which means you earn per 1,000 clicks/views.
Most of the time you will earn only $10-$20 per 1,000 clicks!
This is not good, because you will need to send about 50,000 - 100,000 clicks per month just to earn $1,000.
Instead of earning per 1,000 clicks/views (CPM) , you drop affiliate cookies on your short link visitors, and when they open a free Flipmsg account they automatically join your online business as referrals/leads.
This has an accumulating effect, because with time you will have more and more referrals.
The more referrals/leads you have the more potential you have to earn.
In addition these referrals can generate you more and more referrals (second tier referrals) by using the Audience Builder. On autopilot, without generating any more traffic by yourself.
How Does It Work Behind The Scenes
The Flipmsg URL Shortener redirect your visitors to the flipmsg.com domain for a fraction of a second, and then drop affiliate cookies on them.
These affiliate cookies are for the Flipmsg website and online business. The cookies are long lasting, they will expire only after 365 days (1 year).
Whenever they open a free Flipmsg account they automatically join your online affiliate business.
This way you are not wasting your traffic, you are making sure that you get the most out the traffic you are sending through your short links.
Can It Work in Any Niche?
Sure, it doesn’t matter how many short links you are creating, it doesn’t matter what is the niche, and it doesn’t matter what pages or websites you send traffic to.
The bottom line, Flipmsg is a mainstream platform, when users open an account for free and join your online business, sooner or later they will upgrade their account to gold/business, purchase coins for content creators , or purchase advertising credits.
At least a percentage of them, and all you need is that 1%-2% will upgrade.
Earn Affiliate Commissions
So you are creating short links from long URLs, and redirecting traffic through them to different locations on the web.
You drop affiliate cookies on your visitors, and a percentage of them, let's say 50% are signing up for a free Flipmsg account.
Let's say that you drove 500 clicks through your short links (it doesn’t have to be from a single link)
If you have a 50% conversion rate to sign ups you got 250 referrals/leads.
You can earn monthly affiliate commissions from these 250 leads, how?
You earn affiliate commissions from:
- Account upgrades - when users upgrade to a gold/business account, in order to get advanced tools like group posts, advanced URL shortener functionalities, the Audience builder, Content Monetization and a higher affiliate commissions.
- Coins for content creators - users purchase coins to support their favorite content creator or influencer, or in order to purchase fan club membership, or maybe feature posts on the influencer content pages.
- Advertising Credits - users purchase advertising credits in order to send email notifications to their stream followers or in order to advertise on different areas on flipmsg.com.
(not all advertising options on flipmsg.com support ad credits)
As you can see all of these are broad/mainstream services that can help any user in any niche, and all you have to achieve in order to generate good monthly income is just 1%-2% conversion rate.
Let's say you have 250 leads with 2% conversion rate to account upgrades each month.
250 * 2% = 5 upgrades (sales)
Each upgrade worth $39.99 so:
5 * $39.99 = $200
You earn 50% affiliate commission , so your net income for the month is $100
$100 for 250 leads is not bad at all.
it means your average earning per lead is $100/250 = $0.40 per lead
With $0.40 earnings per lead each month, you can generate great income if you have enough referrals/leads in your online business.
If you have 10,000 referrals/leads you will earn each month about $4,000 like clockwork.
And this doesn’t include any purchase of coins or ad credits.
In the future we will add more subscriptions types and services so you will earn more affiliate commissions with greater variety.
