What is AdWork Media?
AdWork Media is a CPA (Cost per action) network that lets you lock your content behind offer walls, when an offer is completed you’ll get paid real money. AdWork Media pays anywhere from $1.00 – $20.00+ USD per offer completion (or lead), depending on where they live. In order for the visitor to unlock your content they will have to fill out a short survey with their personal information. You can monetize both mobile and desktop traffic. They also have a large variety of other monetization tools and features to help maximize conversions and profit. If you’re interested, Sign Up Here.
AdWork Media Features
Lets you lock and monetize website access, file downloads, tutorials and more. There are over 50 options that you can use to customize each locker. To list off every custom option would take too long, so I’ll just make a small list. You can customize how the locker is loaded; the text that is shown, what happens when the user completes an offer or leaves, how many offers are shown and more. All of their tools have similar if not more options to customize. To view an example of their content locker, click Here.
Link lockers let you monetize links to downloads, passwords, sites and more – basically if it’s a URL, you can monetize it. As with AdWork Media’s other tools, the customization for the link locker is wonderful. You can even edit the CSS and HTML of the landing page, if you so desire, to create your ideal style. The redirection/destination URL should be hidden so users have to complete the offer to download the file and once completed the download should start automatically without revealing the URL. If it isn’t hidden, you may have to switch file host or contact their support team. To view an example of their Link locker, click Here.
This interesting tool is great if you have a product (shipped goods, e-book, guide, software) that you can monetize and allow users to download without needing to pay. It creates a landing page, of sorts, that you can customize to fit your product exactly. You can add testimonials, videos, images and more information related to your product. Of course you can customize the locker as you would the other lockers, adding themes, changing text, etc. To view an example of their Product locker, click Here.
This tool allows you to integrate AdWork Media’s offers into your sites, apps or games. Users complete offers to earn virtual points which then can be used to unlock your content or earn rewards in the game. In order to actually use this feature as it’s intended to be used, you’ll need coding experience or money to higher a coder. To view an example of their Offer Wall, click Here.

- You’ll need to create an account, click here to register.
- Now you will need to figure out your niche and find something that you’ll want to monetize. (More on choosing a niche below.)
- Now you need to figure out who your target audience is going to be and how you’re going to reach them. (More on promoting your content below)
- Have you got all of that figured out? Great! Now it’s time to decide how you will present your content / links to your audience. It is usually recommended to make a website or blog to advertise your content and links instead of sharing direct links from something like a video’s description.
- (Optional, but recommended in most cases) Making a website can be tricky for beginners and can cost some money if you buy hosting and a domain name. However, there are free website builders / hosting that make things easier such as: Blogger, Weebly and Webs to name a few.
Choosing Your Niche
A niche is just a subject or area where one’s skills are best suited for. This is critical if you want to succeed on any CPA network. Imagine you are one of the best programmers in the industry and decide you want to make some extra money with a CPA network. People are more likely to complete a survey to download your programming files/tutorials than if you were just some random beginner. Now this doesn’t mean if you don’t have specialty skills like in the example that you can’t succeed on a CPA network, it means you’ll just have to spend more time finding and perfecting your niche.
When looking for a Niche, it is important to pick something that people actively search for and want. You can use free tools like Google’s Keyword Planner Tool to find out if our niche is in demand. The more popular your niche, the more competition you’re likely to have and the harder it will be to get your site ranked well by search engines.
- Writing eBooks about various subjects (game guides, tutorials, how-to’s, etc).
- Creating & uploading your own software.
- Cheat codes, guides or tutorials for popular video games.
- Making your own apps for mobile devices.
- Locking password downloads.
Promoting Your Content
There are many ways to go about promoting your content and driving viewers to your websites and download links. It is important to know your target audience and how you’re going to reach them. The most popular ways of getting your links out there are: Video Sharing Sites (YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion etc), Forums, Torrents and Social Media.
Once you know how you’re going to reach them, it’s time to set up how you’re going to get them to even consider downloading your content – especially if it’s locked behind a offer wall. My recommendation here is to set up a website of some kind, it can be a free website / blog such as blogger or weebly. Make it look as professional as you can and create some pages for your content. If it looks like you’ve put more effort into it, users will be much more likely to complete a survey for your content.
