In the old world of site creation and monetization, it used to be enough to simply create great content and place various forms of banners advertising throughout your site. The problem with this model is that you would need to have a massive amount of traffic flowing through your site, as only a small percentage of people would actually click on these ads — and even less converting on the end offer.
While this model still works today, there are plenty of more effective ways to make money, while also providing high quality content to your audience in the process. It’s not just about creating high quality content, it’s also about having a successful form of monetization built into your site as well.
Through the use of content locking and advanced mobile marketing, MGCash has created their own affiliate network to provide site owners and affiliate marketers with the necessary tools, tracking and ad serving to maximize their revenue across all platforms.
The Ability to Monetize Traffic Across All Platforms
Gone are the days when you throw up a web site and only look at your visitor and revenue stats. Now you need to know where your traffic is coming from, how they got there and what device they are viewing it through. Just like site tracking has changed, so has the way we all make money online.
MGCash is all about providing their affiliates and site partners with the necessary tools and monetization methods that scale across all platforms, such as desktop, mobile and even audio.
As we continue to see more affiliate networks shift their focus from traditional advertising methods like banners and text ads to interactive ads and mobile marketing, it’s clear that the industry is changing. While not every network is up to par with the current trends, MGCash is standing above the crowd by offering advanced monetization methods such as content locking, mobile monetization with popups and also offering affiliate pre-hosted and pre-made landing pages, which gives the affiliate the ability to grab an offer and start making money with it right away.
Using Content and Link Lockers to Monetize Premium Content
How many times have you create a really great article or piece of content for a site and thought it was so good that you could package it up and sell it as an ebook? This happens a lot, but the actual process of setting it all up is a huge pain — not to mention the hassle of trying to get people to pull out there credit card to make a purchase.
A better alternative is to offer content locking, which is the ability to lock out your content until someone takes an action and completes an offer. Instead of using a credit card for payment, the end user might be able to complete a promotional offer or download free software. Once completed, the end user would gain access to the product or post, while the site owner would earn a commission for the action that was completed.
You can see an example of this in the screenshot below.
What’s also great about content locking is that in most cases the user is really interested in seeing what they were looking for. It’s much easier for them to complete a short survey or action, then having to actually pay for something — which means more money for the site owner.
Below you will also see a screenshot for the content locking creation process, which is simply selecting how many different offers you would like to show, choosing minimum/maximum payouts and messing around with a few formatting options.
The next time you are thinking about how you can make money with that next killer blog post or free ebook you want to give away, think about your options and how content locking might be the best option for your site.

Increased Earnings with MGCash’s Mobile Affiliate Network
With the massive growth of mobile usage growing more and more every month, online marketers who are still focusing all of their efforts on just desktop lead generation are simply missing out. This is something MGCash knows all too well, and have been investing a lot of time and focus as well.
Through the mobile affiliate network, MGCash gives their site partners the ability to monetize their mobile usage through the use of both content locking and popup ads.

Just like with content locking, the site partner always has full stats tracking for easy optimization and revenue monitoring.
