    Hi all

    I have a file on one of my websites that people are downloading like crazy! It is quite useful so it makes sense for it to be downloaded. I am exploring my options to make some money with it. 'Dirty' stuff is out of question since its a very clean niche. I am looking at CPA, PPC and PPD or basically anything I could connect with this pdf downloading.

    However before committing to anything, I would request some advice from experts who have tried this before and made some money.

    Cheers

    If they are that interested in that file, than you can monetize it in many ways.

    I was working with Sharecash - PPD , and they have really high payouts.
    From 1$ to 20$ per download ( Once i got a download from France about 14$,so its not a lie about high payouts). You just need targeted countries like USA, France, I don't remember all...

    So if you could get people to download your file, you could make huge money - if that file is really unsaturated.

    Yes some sort of PPD might be the best choice.

    I'd rather go with CPA than PPD if you have your own website.

    In addition to using CPA or PPD you can make the users share the link before proceeding to the download page. You will get viral traffic from all of the people who are friends with the person who shared your link. This will keep snowballing and bring some passive cash to your bank account.

    Why do you think CPA is better?

    Your reply is the reason why I love this forum!! Thanks for this.

    Downloading like crazy means how many downloads per day? You say it's a very clean niche, and if you really get lots of downloads you could try no survey PPD like HyperFilez (the owner has a thread on this forum). Never tried them myself, but if you want to keep your visitors satisfied and stay "clean" I wouldn't go for CPA since some surveys are really annoying and take them hours to complete. I've had people literally crying because they couldn't complete the surveys to get my file.
    TL;DR: Try ppd with no surveys if you care about your visitors, if not just make them suffer with surveys and enjoy your $$
