WHAT SOCIAL NETWORKS CAN I USE TO PROMOTE?
Any of them, but based on experience Facebook probably works the best. There’s no block on what networks you can or cannot use.
WHY SHOULD I PROMOTE THE URBAN TWIST?
It’s a great way to earn a lot of money from your Facebook page or other social network pages. We typically pay monthly, but for certain performers, we are willing to pay weekly. We are a nice alternative to sites such as MyLikes, where our content is written by professional journalists who strive for high quality and engaging articles. Our CPC model is very competitive and rates are negotiable. Our articles are not misleading or “spammy”, so there’s never a risk with turning off your friends or followers.
HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I EARN FROM THIS AFFILIATE PROGRAM?
You share our articles with your social network following and get paid $2.00 per 1,000 views of your articles. You can also become a content creator and participate in our revenue share program here and earn up to $3 more per 1,000 views. In other words, you can receive up to $5 per 1,000 visitors you send our way through your friends, followers, and/or fans. You earn this amount regardless of whether they come as a result directly from your social media page or from a share, or even if someone stumbles on your article the good old fashioned way through Google.
WHAT CONTENT SHOULD I PROMOTE?
You can promote any of our content that you think your fan base will be interested in. The more interested your fans are the more clicks and revenue you will generate. You will be given a URL modifier that you will add to the end of the post’s URL you are sharing. You can also promote these links through a URL shortener service (such as bit.ly) if you choose to do so, in case you wanted to compare stats with our affiliate program’s.
HOW MANY SOCIAL FOLLOWINGS DO I NEED?
There is no minimum to the amount of followers or friends you should have. Please keep in mind however that the level of success you are trying to achieve will be tied to the amount of friends/followers you have and your ability to send traffic our way.
WHY WAS MY APPLICATION REJECTED?
We reject pages for a few reasons, such as: low page engagement, non-active page, a page with a majority of the fans outside of the US, UK, and Canada.
HOW IS REVENUE CALCULATED?
Revenue is calculated on a click/pageview basis, meaning you get paid for each unique person that clicks on the promoted content and views the article. We use WordPress and Google Analytics to track the traffic and generate reports. Traffic sources must be verified before any payment can be issued. We typically need 30 days to verify that your traffic sources are legit.
HOW CAN I MAXIMIZE MY REVENUE?
The bottom line is this: the more interested your friends/fans are, the more clicks and revenue you will generate. Try to pick articles to share that fits your audience. You can also apply to become a content creator and can write and craft particular sets of articles to accommodate your needs. You can always reach out to us if you have any particular ideas or topics you’d want to be considered for an article that you’d promote.
WHY IS THERE A DELAY WITH STATISTICS?
Data is only updated when new clicks are recognized, there may be a maximum delay of up to 3 hours while our systems verify activity and calibrate it into readable data.
WHEN DO I GET PAID?
Payments are sent out every 1st of the Month, except official U.S. Holidays or weekends. If the 1st lands on one of these days, you’ll be paid the next business day. For certain qualified publishers, we are willing to pay weekly.
HOW DO I GET PAID?
Payments are automatically sent to your designated PayPal account which can be set on the settings page.
IS THERE A PAYMENT THRESHOLD?
Yes! You must earn a minimum of $100.00 USD before a payment will be sent to you.
WHAT CURRENCY DO YOU PAY IN?
