Should you really pay to use Monumetric's advertising service or is it just as good as using Google Adsense?
How does everything even work?
There are a lot of questions that you can't find answers for and that is why I have put together this Monumtric review.
Just like a lot of you, I was curious as to what type of revenue I can generate from a paid service and I decided to give it a go.
So after 3 months worth of “trying” and having some back and forth conversations with their team and my affiliate manager, I have gained a better understanding of things and I would like to share them with you.
After seeing “300% increase in revenue” and all that stuff on the net, I had to dig a little deeper.
The Google Adsense program was decent but wasn't really worth it.
Especially for a niche that has a huge focus on affiliate marketing.
Let's dive right in and I will show you my personal results after using this advertising network.
So What is Monumetric?
Monumetric is an advertising network that pays you for hosting their ads on your site.
They focus on every type of ad, so you can expect to have at least 3 of these on your site if you do decide to give them a go.
- Desktop display ads
- Mobile specific display ads
- In-image and in-line video ads
- Rich media ads
- Native ads
- Interstitial ads
These ads will show up randomly on your site and there is actually a minimum amount that is necessary.
The amount of visitors you receive daily will determine that amount, so keep that in mind.
How it Works
Unlike your traditional PPC (pay per click) model like Google Adsense has, you get paid on a PPV (pay per view) basis.
By simply having these ads on your site and a visitor “views” any of those ads, you will make money.
Before Monumetric, I never knew such a thing existed and with all the other positive reviews, it left me with no choice but to at least try it for myself.
The concept is super simple but how they pay and all that is a lot more complicated, so let me give you some of my statistics before I get into the more technical stuff.
Overall I am pleased with the increase in the amount of money I made.
But let me explain a little more on what I made and how that translates into actual dollars.
If you see the screenshot above, you will see that I make about $8 per thousand views (RPM), which is a huge increase from what I was getting with Google Analytics.
I also make about $25 a day, which is a lot more than what I made with Analytics and a great addition to the overall monetization of this site.
As well as another one of my niche sites.
Now you might be like “wow, you make almost a thousand dollars per month with Monumetric?
The answer is yes, but there is a lot you need to know as this is where I was most confused.
Getting Paid With Monumetric
The whole reason anyone would join Monumetric in the first place is to make money.
And that is one problem I encountered in my first few months of working with them.
The first thing you need to know is that you will not get paid on the first month of having their ads on your site, and you won't be getting paid on the second month either but allow me to explain.
Monumetric works with advertisers.
In order for them to pay its affiliates (people like you and me) they need to get paid from them, as they are the ones paying in the first place.
You can see all types of earnings daily but all of that is spread out in a 30, 60, and even a
90 day window.
Update: As of late 2018, Monumetric now pays on a net 60 basis (every two months) and they now pay once a month, anywhere from the 1st – 10th.
At first things will seem like it wasn't worth it, but once you make that first paycheck, it will start to be more consistent.
The things is that Google works the same way, but it's less noticeable when you're not making much.
Monumetric does pay twice a month though, so once you start getting paid, you will see your true earnings there after.
They pay on the
5th and 25th 1st through the 10th of every month but the earnings for each of those days will be decided on whether these advertisers are paying on the 30,60, or 90 day deal.
In the end, you will get what you deserve, so don't let this part confuse you if you do decide to join Monumetric.
Unlike me, you won't have to get in and wonder why in the world you aren't getting paid.
In the beginning it sucks but once you start making money, things will roll smoothly and you will make money
twice every month.

At a Glance
Website: Click here for official site
Price: Free or $99 for websites with less than 80k visitors a month
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
Final Verdict: Legit
Although it can be a little confusing in the beginning, Monumetric is not a scam and they will pay you.
Yes, most of you will have to pay and payments don't start until after 60 days but once that happens, you won't have to worry about not making any ad revenue in the future.
I do recommend you keep a close watch on your site because my ads weren't showing for almost a week and of course I didn't make any money.
I have yet to try other advertising networks but so far this is definitely one I would recommend.
For those of you who have sites with trickles of traffic that at least pass 8,000 visitors, this is a great way for you to start.
Bringing in money on a more consistent basis is something I'm sure a lot of you are aiming to do..
If I had found out about this site when I first started, I could've been making a lot more money but it was only last year where I even learned about it.
Forget about having people click on ads so that you can get paid and start making money just from having people on your site.
It won't make your site look the prettiest but for an extra $10-$20 a day, I think it's worth it.
Thanks for reading my Monumetric review and I hope it has helped you understand things a little better.
