|This page explains how CliqueRouter works
and how it can provide high quality, low
cost traffic to grow your business. As you
read our description of CliqueRouter, we
urge you to remember that all traffic is
sent from our web sites at the request of the user. Because visitors choose to visit your site, you avoid the ill will
and very low conversion rates from traffic
generated by annoying pop-up ads, page exits,
automatic redirects, spam, and other mass
With CliqueRouter, you get focused customers who visit your site because they want to know more or to buy now.
Our Traffic Can Be Your Traffic
The key to CliqueRouter is that we are primarily interested in doing what you are doing: attracting a subject-specific audience for the lowest possible cost that will convert to customers at the highest possible rate. To attract the right visitors to our websites, we spend about $100,000 a year on a mix of high volume, low cost marketing and acquisition strategies. To optimize our efforts, we are constantly analyzing our yield statistics and adjusting our advertising to minimize our visitor conversion cost while maximizing our conversion volume.
The result of our efforts is a highly targeted audience that we share with our CliqueRouter advertisers.
Pre-Qualified Traffic for Your Web Site
Our websites are organized as a series of topical pages covering the following subject areas:
Visitors that arrive by traditional advertising methods interact with the arrangement of our pages. This process further qualifies their interest and enables us to narrow their interests into very specific topics.
While a significant percentage of our inbound traffic becomes our customers, some visitors still leave without buying because they have not found the product or service they are seeking. For us, these visitors represent necessary but wasted advertising dollars. Through CliqueRouter, we offer these topic-qualified visitors to our CliqueRouter advertisers; and because forwarding them to our advertisers has a very small incremental cost to us, we can offer this service at a cost per click dramatically below the cost for a less qualified lead from a search engine and other traditional advertising approaches.
Currently, our web sites cover over 1100 individual topics. We add new topics daily to expand the breadth and volume of traffic. Through CliqueRouter, you can use our broad array of topics to advertise to visitors pre-qualified for the topics appropriate to you. Because we place CliqueRouter ads in locations that are appropriate to the advertiser, a click on your link means the visitor is interested in learning more or wants to buy what you are selling -- hence the high quality traffic that we forward to you at a price far below what it would cost to secure a top listing on a major search engine. And, if we do not currently have a page on a topic that is appropriate to your web site, our editorial department will consider developing a new topic page for you.
Lastly, because CliqueRouter uses text links, which are one of the most effective type of advertising link, you have no graphical banners or other "ad creatives" to set-up or maintain -- your link is simply the name of your web site (without the ".com" or other extension) or of your company.
Cost per Click
There is no charge for creating a CliqueRouter advertising account, creating one or more links, or displaying links on the our pages. Advertisers are only charged a "per-click" charge when a visitor actually clicks on a link. The amount of the per-click charge is established in advance when the link is created and does not change for the life of the link.
Advertisers may begin with a deposit (via PayPal) of as little as $10 (USD). Each deposit is charged a non-refundable 10% deposit transaction fee. The current per click charge is as low as $0.05, which results in an effective charge of $0.055 per click.
Our online tools provide real-time and historical tracking of the click activity on your links, which means that you can view the amount spent on each link by day and period of day. At your request, a tracking code can be embedded into the linking URL so that you can measure the effectiveness of our leads. And our tools allow you to stop and start the display of your links anytime you wish. If your advertising requirements change, you may cancel your participation in CliqueRouter, and the unused portion of your deposit will be promptly refunded.
While we do not offer maximum spending thresholds, you can get some degree of regulation by controlling the amount of funding in your account. Once that funding is exhausted, the ads automatically shut off until you replenish the funding. Because the deposit transaction fee is a fixed rate, it does not matter whether you make multiple small deposits or one large one -- the choice is yours.
