    Hi there,

    I am just wondering. How does company (advertisers) makes money with Toolbars Download CPA. Some of these offers are paying 1-2$/lead.

    After the user installed the toolbar on his computer, what generate money for the company?

    For example, M1ndspark business model is solely based on Toolbar advertising: http://www.mindspark.com/main/websites/index.shtml. This is the company behind all the "Smileys toolbar".

    Well to start you off with some ideas, when I was 9 I used to download that stuff, and my mom got mad at me because at the time it had adware and stuff in it. It might have it still because adware isn't illegal. Then there are other things such as the search bars, that may be connected to adsense. The exposure of other products inside the toolbars. Homepage, installation of search bar toolbars. (those pay 1.50-3.00 themselves.). There are some with popups but i'm not sure if they have those. Information on your computer, emails, name, address, whatever else is sneaking behind their terms. Anyways there are probably 10 times more than what I posted that no one knows about.

    Hope I helped,

    Some downloads are owned by PPV Networks. Like gamevance.com is owned by the biggest PPV network Traffic Vance.

    As far as I know they pay incentive networks to promote their installs, and when user installs them, these toolbars starts showing pop ups/pop unders from the PPV network. PPV networks gets paid by the andvertisers everytime they show the pop up. Average from $0.01 to $0.30

    I'm pretty sure there is much more then this behind those install offers.

    that is new to me I need to learn the fact, however, I think by reinstalling them they are work like a gatway and when ever you got visit they got that via them. probably that,s why they can pay you in returns.
