How does Twinpine Mobile Advertising work?
Twinpine is like an advertising broker, similar to other advertising networks like Adsense and AdBrite. They all help advertisers and publishers connect with each other. The difference between Twinpine and the rest is that it is a Nigerian owned company and is focused on mobile advertising.
Publishers of mobile sites and apps register with Twinpine Advertising network to find quality advertisers that will help them make money with (monetize) their mobile sites and apps. Advertisers on their own part register with Twinpine to enable them display targeted Ads on mobile websites and Apps.
The advertiser places the campaigns and selects the mobile sites he wants his ads to be published. Twinpine also allows advertisers to target Ads by time, days of the week, age and sex.
When a mobile user visits the mobile site of a Twinpine publisher, a targeted Ad from a Twinpine advertiser is displayed on the mobile site. If the user finds the ad interesting enough and clicks on the value of the Ad click is deducted from the advertisers account and 60% of that cost is credited into the account of the publisher. Twinpine takes the remaining 40%. Twinpine pays all publishers via Naira denominated cheques.
The minimum payout for publishers is $100. The initial payment will run on a 60-day cycle, while subsequent payments will run on a 30-day cycle. You need to make the minimum payout within the cycle period to be qualified for payment for the period. Earnings not meeting the minimum payout within a cycle will carry over to the next cycle.
