Online Advertising Killer — another uprising Malaysian advertising website?
As advertised in the website, you can earn money from them with 3 simple steps:
- Register an Account
- Read Advertisement
- Get Paid
Online Advertising Killer is a newly launched website. It started operation mid April 2007. Currently, it has slightly over 10,000 registered members. Not bad for a new company. The website is available in 3 major languages — English, Mandarin and Bahasa Malaysia.
Here’s a sampel of their advertisement. The advertisement will be accompanied by two (or more) questions. The answers can be found from the advertisement itself. This is to ensure that the members look through the advertisment.
Online Advertising Killer’s form of advertising is different compared to other advertising companies like Google Adsense and Nuffnang. With Nuffnang, the advertisement is displayed to a group of readers. Meanwhile with Online Advertising Killer, the advertisement is only displayed to the member. Therefore, the potential buyer for an advertisement at Online Advertising Killer is only the member him/herself.
I don’t think Online Advertising Killer will make it big (I may be wrong). The main reason is that people who joined this program are looking for money, not to spend money. For example, what’s the point (for the member) to earn RM1 for an advertisement but end up paying RM10 for a set meal advertised by KFC? That way, the more advertisements the member views, the more he/she loses.
If you’re thinking that the members will only view the advertisements but will not purchase the products or services advertised, then why should an advertiser even bother to advertise?
These are just my views. Mind to share yours?
