TNX.net – A New Text Link Ad Marketplace
October 21, 2007
If you’re looking for a fantastic alternative to the Text-Link-Ads site and marketplace, then TNX.net (TNX pronounced as the word “thanks”, as in internet chat speak) could be your perfect solution. They target both advertisers and publishers in a great way. This site could easily surpass other text link ad websites, you just watch and see. Or even better, sign up and be a part of it all so you don’t miss out!
TNX.net is a great place to buy links and have them appear on other sites. They make it simple and easy. Once you access their site and see their global dashboard, you click on the “Create Campaign” button. You name your campaign and select all the kinds of site categories it will appear under. There are also little dollar sign symbols beside each category to let you know how much they cost, which I think is a very nice addition. You also get to choose the languages of the sites your ad appears on, along with the number of backlinks and the PageRank the site must have. Last but not least, you get to choose how much you are willing to spend.
Once you enter in all of this information (which takes about two minutes to do), the site will calculate approximately how many links you should receive for your campaign. With all of this, YOU get to control how your ad campaign runs and you get great exposure on quality sites.
If you’d rather be the one earning money by displaying links on your site instead of buying them, then TNX.net offers that as well. After registering it’s very easy to become a publisher. You just click the “Get Code” button in the sidebar of the dashboard and are presented with a few different copy-and-paste methods of inserting the code into your site. This is very quick and will only take a minute to do. After that, you are able to fill out a quick form and add your site for acceptance into their marketplace. TNX.net site submissions are moderated by real people, so acceptance could take a couple days.
However, after your website is approved within a very short period of time links will start appearing on your site, and there’s no hard work involved for you!
The TNX Point System
One thing I have yet to mention is that TNX.net runs using a point system, which makes it unique and more special than other link marketplace sites out there. TNX points can be acquired by purchasing them from TNX.net themselves (currently the cost is 1,000 points for is a little over a dollar and the price increases 2% per week, so hurry!), or even other members of the site. This can be an awesome money-making opportunity for some! TNX points are based on PageRank and here is an example of what you can get by having 20,000 points:
- 20,000 different PR0 pages from different websites
- 400 different PR1 pages from different websites
- 200 different PR2 pages from different websites
- 100 different PR3 pages from different websites
- 40 different PR4 pages from different websites
- 20 different PR5 pages from different websites
As you can see this is a very fair value, and often times you can get a lot more for your money!
I absolutely love TNX.net’s affiliate program. It isn’t based on a flat rate like most other sites. Check out this description, copied from TNX.net’s site:
“When you refer webmasters to TNX.net, you get 13.3% (as long as your account is active) of all TNX-points that are generated by their websites. In addition, you will receive 5% of all payments, made by referred advertiser (this option will work after paypal payments will be automated).”
All in all, I think TNX.net is definitely a great site in which to sign up for, whether you’re looking to sell ads and buy links or earn from displaying them. (If you ARE interested in buying links, there is a currently a limited time offer where you can get free points to use on free links!) As you can see, TNX.net offers a great system that is unique from any other. They have a simple and easy-to-use interface, good pricing, a fantastic affiliate program, and offer a lot of control to their advertisers AND their publishers. I don’t see much on the site that needs to be improved and it has great potential, and already thousands of members that are taking advantage of its great service.
