    Hi,

    Am I am rather new to earning revenue from file sharing and would like to know your thoughts and experiences regarding the plans that most file sharing sites offer.
    SEMrush
    What are the best plans that you use for your earning? PPD or PPS or some Mix of each.

    What are the best plans that you have seen being offered currently?

    You do not have to name any company or site, just the plan or plans that work for you.

    Your thoughts and suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks for your time!

    :D

    start off with PPD - as you won't get many sales in early days unless you're lucky, or own your own site.
    Best plans are wupload and filepost :)

    Yes, start with ppd plan. Wupload offers the best ppd rates. Also when you start seeing sales you can also switch plan to up to 80% of sales.

    For getting lots of sales use only 1 file host.

    use one host for a lot of sales - but for a lot of downloads and to keep them happy have 3 or 4 hosts :)
    filepost, wupload, filesonic, fileserve are the best

    yes downloads and sales strategies are exactly opposite, for example for ppd

    use more file hosts
    split big files to small parts according to file tier

    while in pps

    use only 1 file host
    post as single links

    etc

    I would go with pay per download. Make sure you're uploading good content because the user will have to have the will to complete a survey/action.

    It all depends where and how you promote. For PPD you can go for the mass - indians, chinese and asia for most of the time, you should go for PPD. People in this countries do not pay(low life style) for premium accounts even those of $9. If you target the developed countries(private US, UK, Canada, Australia, Europe forums) you should go for PPS for sure. It all depends on the audience. I share on my website and some forums so I went for PPS(own website is a gold mine if you manage to get a cheap off-shore hosting and get some traffic).

    This plan above is all one plan.

    You get both PPD AND PPS included with this file sharing site.

    Since I am new to earning with file sharing I wanted to know if this plan is a good offer.

    If your looking to get paid a higher price per download. You can go the unconventional route with a survey based PPD.

    Best of luck! :)

    if you go for survey based PPD you will earn more per download, a lot more, bbut you will also get hardly any downloads.

    I have decided to go WITHOUT survey based PPD. I do not think people want to take the time to fill out the surveys and will move on to another site.

    Thanks for all of the great responses!

    It should always be a good idea to try other file sharing concepts first, and see which works before trying them all at once

    I agree with you. I have decided to go with a company that give me both PPS and PPD.

    Thanks again for all of the great advice!
