    Today I'm going to introduce you to the newest PPD in the game. I realize since I started working on this project in August '11 the industry has been absolutely flooded with new PPD sites. I decided it was still worth getting into because I have the ability and ideas to make it something truly unique.

    I come from a decent background in regards to the niches many people advertise. I used the niches for years to obtain over 200,000 referrals by ranking well in the search engines. Blackhatworld taught me a lot of what I needed to achieve that. A few years later I'm looking to make a move to bigger things. I have done the grueling labor so I know how important it is for the owner to be on top of things. I want to be a part of the community so I know what you guys are looking for from my site and hopefully make the moves you want me to make to help you profit the most. With that being said, here's my pitch as an active long term member of BHW.

    http://paidshare.org

    What PaidShare offers:
    • No maximum per download. Maximum earned thus far was $10 from one download.
    • Average payment of $0.51 per offer. This is taken directly off my home page. You may wonder why so low. At PaidShare I prefer to focus on conversion rates. Typically easier to complete offers and provided. My conversion rate is much higher than statistics I've seen from many sites. When the conversion rate is 3x higher you'll make more in the long run with the lower paying downloads.
    • Upload limit of 50mb but if somebody needs a larger upload limit that can be accommodated.
    • Instant account approval!
    • Payout via alertpay, paypal and check, but can accommodate other means if requested.
    • If I get paid you get paid. I won't remove content unless reported or blatantly conflicts with the TOS.
    • Willing to work closely with users to help them maximize profits.
    • Unfortunately, at this time porn is not accepted. A file labeled as "password" is though if you want to promote adult site passwords.

    Some cool features:
    • A table with the number of impressions, download attempts, successful downloads and earnings for both the lifetime of each individual file and for a "reset period" which begins at any time you decide to reset it.
    • A 30 day daily earnings graph charts your progress over a month.
    • A chart showing the overall country breakdown of your traffic.
    • Individual 15 day graphs plotting downloads and earnings from each individual file.
    • A chatbox to help build a community. Private messaging to interact with users on a more one on one level to help one another out.
    • 10% of a users earnings for life for referring them.

    Keep checking this thread over time to see the unique features I promise. I haven't started developing the unique features that make PaidShare stand out from the rest. Right now, it is what it is. Another PPD site but one with a focus on providing you with as much information as possible about how your files are performing to help you maximize profits.

    If you have new ideas that you want to see implemented in a PPD site that no other site has been willing to accommodate let me know! I like being different than other sites. It's how you get ahead in the industry.

    Hey Italian_Hawk,

    Congrats on starting up your own PPD site! I am sure that it took some time to devise one that is both unique and appealing to hopefully the many potential users of yours in the foreseeable future. I have used Sharecash for my PPD efforts and haven't had too many complaints, however they can definitely improve a few things. Thus, I'll send you a PM enumerating a few suggestions that I'm sure you'd be happy to implement.

    Starting up any affiliate network site can turn into a full-time commitment and I hope you are cognizant of this. Please don't shy away from turning this site into something great. Many webmasters are dedicated to their site within its inauguration only to fail with the upkeep once it blows up or even simply frays away. Just as with the presidential elections, all of your banter preceding the citizens' votes is taken with a mere grain of salt until it has been acted upon. I hope to see you be one of the few to act upon what you've said because the PPD market is a great one. I am hoping other members will join up and be willing to see this thing grow. Good luck and cya around.

    Thanks MicrosoftPoints. This is definitely what I see myself dedicating my time to for the foreseeable future. I'm willing to put aside the various SEO projects that got me to this point so that I can focus on helping others make more from their SEO efforts.

    good idea, reason i don't use ppd is most users refuse to download because the surveys "never credit" so i think you've got a solid start

    I record my information a bit differently so unfortunately I don't have a site-wide EPC. I have the information available to each user and I will have it added to the stats table very soon. Thanks for the suggestion. It will be good to help compare between other PPDs.

    Fixing with you now.

    That's my goal. Focus on getting more credits as opposed to focusing on providing the highest paying. The problem is, many users won't realize that more approvals more than offset the lower payment per individual offer. I like this model better.

    Good news, just spoke with my new programmer today. The new and unique features I have spoken about in my introduction thread are currently under development now. I will update you as they go live. Here are some proof of payments though from two users.

    One users first and second payout:

    proof3.png

    and here's the first payout of another user:

    I like the fact that you are a Black Hatter also. You understand our problems and our goals. I am currently building a membership site, I will come back to PaidShare when I finish. I could use this to help monitize my site.

    well if your focusing on conversion don't you think the domain name already lowers conversion as it says "paid". Many visitors will see the domain name and realize others are getting paid for the download and make people think if this is real or not? and is your site fully custom coded or did you use a template/script? i think i have seen a similar looking site before

    Surpassed both the 100 user count and 1,000 files downloaded this weekend. I'm very excited with the growth. Once I get my new features up it'll only speed up from there.

    File mirrors are under construction. For those unsure of what that means, basically you'll be able to upload your files and have them displayed on other domains. These domains will be more thought out in terms of conversions.

    Also, the site is fully custom coded. The reason it may look similar to others is because my template designer based it off of a combination of ShareCash and Uploadee template features. The template is also something that will be redone in the near future though too.

    Let me know how it goes.


    Ready to launch the forum in the next day or two. From there it's time to start developing some unique features that will set my site apart. Also looking to join some new CPAs to provide some even better converting and paying offers.

    The forum has gone live. Now looking at developing some of the other core unique features I've been wanting to add for the last month in addition to some new networks so that I can pay you guys more for the same traffic.
