How to start making money immediately with your social media accounts or blogs

This article explains an easy method you can use to make money online by shortening URLs and making money from them after people click on them.

The URLs don’t have to come from your website or blog. In fact, you don’t even need a website to make money from shortened URLs or web links of content you can share on many online platforms.

Many shortened URLs on the internet are paid for. Paid shortened URLs or links are usually overlooked by many people; however, they can be used to earn tons of cash, especially if they are shared regularly to huge traffic, regardless of source or destination.

By using any URL-shortening platform, service, or website, you can earn money online by shortening long URLs from any websites, and pasting or posting them on various platforms.

The good thing about making money from shortened URLs is that you don’t need any technical skills. In addition, you don’t need to own a website or blog. On the other hand, if you own a website or blog, especially with a large following (followers), it would be a great bonus for you.

How are shortened URLs or links used to make money?

After signing up with any URL-shortening service, you just need to enter (or copy and paste) your link onto the box provided by the service and create a short URL for free.

You can sign up with the best, most veteran, and most trusted URL-shortening website—Adfly. Although there are so many URL-shortening services, Adfly is the biggest player in the market because they’ve been in the business for a very long time, have a good reputation, and payout the highest and most decent rates—in addition, I’ve personally been using Adfly and can give an account of how it works.

Each time someone clicks on a shortened link you create on Adfly, you will get paid! Usually, when a visitor (or anybody) clicks on an Adfly shortened link, the shortened URL will pause for about 5 seconds and then redirect the visitor (or anybody) to the destination of the original link. For those 5 seconds, Adfly will display an advert which you will be paid for, especially if the visitor waits for the web page to open.

In order to help direct readers, but still, make money, you may give instructions such as: “When you click the link, you may also have to click the ‘Skip AD’ button that could appear around the top right corner of your screen, and the web page (or file, it depends) will open/appear. Alternatively, if the “Press allow” button appears, click it so that the web page (or file) will open/appear”.

Where to get traffic for your Adfly shortened URL

As we all know, the internet has long been a platform where people share information through links, or by linking. Most types of information are interesting because of their importance to people’s lives.

In order to make money after signing up with Adfly and creating shortened URLs, you can post them on forums and social media networking platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, etc.

Whenever a visitor clicks on your shortened URL, money will be credited to your account. So, there is always a potential to earn income from every click on your shortened URL, especially when or where there is a lot of traffic.

One of the best ways you can generate money or attract a lot of people or visitors to click on your shortened URLs or links is to set up or make use of Facebook groups. Many Facebook groups have more than a million followers—so you can actually make good money quickly!

You can also make a lot of money creating eBooks like I do, and ask visitors who are interested to download them. Alternatively, you can produce videos and post them to YouTube, with a shortened link placed as the hyperlink for the description of the eBook or video. Generally, you could post your shortened URLs on/through the following platforms:

  • Facebook: several millions of people use Facebook on a daily basis; so Facebook is one of the best, if not the best platform to post your links and publish them.
  • Forums: you can write posts or comments on countless forums in order to promote your links.
  • Pinterest: you can publish pictures of popular content with your shortened URLs attached.
  • Twitter: you can post shortened links to interesting content or web pages for followers who could click and retweet the links.
  • Youtube: you can use your shortened links on in order to direct (or redirect) visitors to uploaded videos.
  • A website or blog: you can make a free website or blog and create shortened links for the content of your website. If you don’t have a website or blog, but need one, then easily get one for free: sign up with here.
  • Paid campaigns on other websites/platforms: you can run paid campaigns in order to put your shortened URLs at the front of huge volumes of true, trusted, and tested traffic from targeted countries such as the United States (US), Canada, United Kingdom (UK), Australia, Spain (ES), Germany, etc. On Adfly you can pay and advertise mass campaigns for any number of people to view your links by clicking the “Advertiser” button (at the top right of a registered account) and selecting certain options.

How to create short Adfly URLs

In order to create shortened URLs on Adfly, first sign up for an Adfly account. After you sign up and get an account, sign in to your account and you will find a box on the home page where you can shorten any URL by pasting it onto the box and clicking “Shrink!”.

After you paste and click “Shrink!”, a shortened URL will immediately be created. Once it’s created, copy and paste or use it on any platform you believe would bring you the highest money or profit.

Payment methods used by Adfly

Adfly offers the highest payout rate of about $22 per 1000 unique views that come from the United States. The rates for other regions differ and are typically lesser.

You can actually make a lot of money from Adfly if you can attract tons of traffic from the US. Other countries that attract more money through shortened URLs include Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Finland, Germany, and the UK.

If you choose PayPal as your payment method, whenever your earnings grow up to $5 or more during the preceding month (or months, depending on how much money your links attract during the time period), your earnings will be automatically paid before midnight on the official payment date for payment which is on the 1st day of each month.

If you choose Payoneer as your payment method, and the money in your account grows up to $10, then your earnings will be automatically paid on the official date of payment because the requirement for withdrawal via Payoneer is that any account should have a minimum of $10.

If you sign up, ensure that your PayPal or Payoneer email/account ID is correct, otherwise, you won’t be able to receive payment. If you intend to miss a payment, then it is advisable that you remove your payment details from your account before the 1st day of each month that you request for and expect payment.

Besides earning money through shortened links, you can also earn money by attracting referrals for Adfly. If you refer people, you would receive 20% of their total earnings for life.

If you like Adfly’s offer and are interested in earning money from shortened URLs, then sign up here and start earning money immediately!

In case you may need a Payoneer account for receiving and withdrawing money from Adfly

If you would like to get a Payoneer account, click here and sign up. Payoneer provides registered members with foreign bank accounts and makes it possible for its users to receive and withdraw money in over 50 currencies, and into local bank accounts in more than 200 countries.

    1. thanks for your comment but this has nothing to do with blogging… you don’t need a blog for this…using shrinked links on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc., has nothing to do with blogging… please read the post again because you seem to be referring to something else which is not the essence of the post…also, there is alot of money in blogging, if only you know how to go about it….

    1. haha 😂… I enjoyed your comment… thanks… but it really works, and would always work if you could do the little work that comes with it…it’s straight forward and easy if you can find traffic; Adfly is authentic…do thorough research online and read reviews about Adfly, then make your decision if you are interested

    1. “did not think”… good enough you are not sure…don’t know where you perceived that from, but I already made a ton off a free site in the past… not everybody on is on a free plan, and from my interactions with wordpress support as per affiliate marketing, they said anyone is free to participate in money making programs, but don’t post objectionable content like nude stuff, etc..

    1. you’re welcome…maybe those people are scammers, or their likes…I am into affiliate marketing programs and have personally questioned support or happiness engineers over money making schemes…they’ve even informed me that if I want to sell my ebooks, I can put my account details on posts for people to pay into…

        1. thanks for sharing your post…I often view your blog and notice you haven’t published in a while…I’m surprised how the follow buttons function at times on sometimes; I fondly remember following your blog in the past, only to notice today that the follow button is off…I’m refollowing

  2. I haven’t heard of adfly but will check them out. Knowing that they pay out $22 per 1000 unique visitors is helpful. I have spent very little on my site so far but have been improving it with additional content. Thank you for the information.

  3. Thank you for sharing this. I never had any idea of such until now, and it’s quiet interesting.

    But then I’ve got a problem; I’ve had difficulties opening a PayPal account before, I think it has something to do with been in Nigeria. I tried to browse about it and found I could only be able to send out money through it from here, but not to receive.

    Do you happen to have any idea what I should do?

    1. thanks for the observation…the links don’t open the pages immediately…I shrinked the real links, and Adfly displays some advertisements when people click on them—sometime for their advertisers; sometimes for their own website—and I earn from it if people are patient with the ads…finally, the pages do open, but before then, ads interrupt a little bit

  8. My wife and i felt thrilled that Emmanuel could round up his inquiry through your precious recommendations he got out of the web pages. It’s not at all simplistic to simply find yourself giving out solutions that many a number of people may have been making money from. And we all take into account we’ve got the writer to give thanks to for that. The main illustrations you made, the easy web site navigation, the relationships you aid to foster – it’s got most extraordinary, and it’s really helping our son and us consider that the content is brilliant, which is exceedingly serious. Many thanks for the whole lot!

  12. I just wanted to say thank you. I’ll certainly give it a go. I was going to do it through your links, but they don’t seem to be working for me. I don’t know if it’s your links, or if it’s my iPad. My iPad often doesn’t allow me to do things that should actually be working. (I need a new iPad). Lol😀

    1. thanks for your warm and thoughtful comment. the links don’t have any issue; it’s most likely that the fault is from your iPad… just follow your heart
