    Hello I am coming from the world of CPA Marketing and unfortunately I don't much about PPC. I have been running email submits over Instagram for awhile now and was looking to get into PPC. So basically I was wondering if anyone has ever placed a link (cloaked/hidden) on their Instagram page and tried to get clicks. I know PPC usually has to do with banner ads so I'm not even sure if its possible to get a link and promote it out there. If anyone can chime in on the feasibility of this please do so. Also if there are any recommendations on a network that is good for this please direct me in that direction something like (Maxbounty, Peerfly) but for PPC.

    Thanks ! :cool:

    Thanks for the response, but no not a survey just any website. They don't have to complete anything, they just have to click on the website and view it. But instead of a banner ad with on a webpage. It would be a direct link from Instagram with no banners. I wuld get paid any time they click on my Instgram link. I am new to PPC so I am not sure if this is even a real method for PPC.

    Don't use Adsense, hide your referring traffic as well from ad networks. I'd go with a cpm based one, and match the niche category as well.

    So what if I had an Instagram account with very attractive women. I placed a link to the "banner ad" (or website). People clicked on the link and I got paid for each click. The link is totally unrelated to the attractive woman. Kinda like how Danica Patrick advertises for GoDaddy. Is this possible or feasible? The attractive girl wouldn't really be a niche. But pretty girls have th emost followers and get the most interaction on Instagram.

    Also any good alternatives to adsense?

    You mean something like ad.fly?

    IMO, that would just ruin the "user experience" on your page and can affect your user engagement as well.

    Would rather send them to a page that promotes a CPA/clickbank offer that's related to your niche.

    I have over 200 Instagram Accounts, Im not that concerned with users coming back to the page I just want them visiting, clicking and going. I checked out ad.fly and tht seems to be the the type of thing I'm going for. Thanks for the suggestion also checking out linkbucks
