    Hi Guys,

    Firstly thanks a lot to everyone...I have been following much of the advice on here and it has helped me lots....

    But, basically I have a youtube channel which generates a decent amount of views per day. As I get a lot of requests for downloads to my content (i upload audio which I create/record) I decided to give AWM a go.

    I have noticed I am getting quite a few clicks on the links but its been a month or so and still have not got a download for the content. I believe it is because my audience is not willing to go through filling a survey...

    I was wondering is there a site or a way which I can simply get paid per download without having to make the user go through a survey. So basically, when the click on the link i post on youtube it directly takes them to the donwload link..

    I am quite sure I would recieve a great number of downloads this way. Well at least more than i have now!

    So if anyone can help..please do...

    Thank you! :)

    You get paid per download because the host company is getting paid per action. If the host company isn't getting paid, you don't get paid.

    The only other option is to charge your customers for the files..... OR... put a ton of ads around your own download link.

    ******? Linkbucks? You will be paid pennies if you are not pulling in good traffic but it's better than what you are making now apparently.

    The best alternative would be to charge them a certain fee before they could download the file.
    Since there are other alternatives as well like you can use ****** to shorten links and sites like depositfiles where the user won't have to complete a survey but would just have to wait few seconds to download the file. But I won't really suggest this since the pay really less.

    OP if you already have hosting/a domain, you could perhaps host the file yourself. Instead of the download link going to a third party, have it go to a page on your site from where the user could click and download the file. Surround the page with various ads and see if that works. You might want to test this with something other than adsense, since I'm concerned they might ban you for having no content on the page.

    Thanks, I will take a look at these websites. It is probably a better option than the one I am using as still not getting any downloads. Does anyone know of anyones that pay a bit more...I have seen some that give $5 per 1000 downloads, that is quite low.

    I know for sure the users will not be willing to pay.

    I do not host on to my own site. I use mega to host the file then AWM as link shortener and to display a survey...

    Thanks for the help so far.
