In this article you will be able to find everything you need to know concerning pricing and billing options and policies at Speakol.
Lets start with the basics,
CPC Pricing Model:
Speakol charges advertisers on a CPC (Cost per Click), CPM (Cost per One Thousand Impressions), CPL (Cost per Lead), and CPV (Cost per Video) basis.
Your CPC bid is the amount of money you are willing to pay for each click one of your campaign ads receives. You want to set a CPC that allows you to meet your performance goals. If the CPC rate is too modest, you will not be able to obtain the number of clicks required; at the same time, if the CPC rate is too high and you fail to secure the number of clicks needed, the transaction will fail to meet its purpose. The minimum required CPC value is $0.01. We do advise, however, that advertisers set a value between $0.2 – $0.70 to start. Speakol recommends that you start with a high CPC rate when you launch your campaign to ensure that it is competitive, which increases its visibility and subsequently increases the number of clicks. That way, you can have enough data to make informed optimized decisions on how to run the Speakol campaign.
Your CPM bid is the amount of money you are willing to spend for each one thousand impressions of your ad campaigns; CPV (Cost per video click) refers to the amount of money you are willing to pay every time a user clicks or views your videos to completion. While the CPL is the amount of money you are willing to pay for each time users are converted into leads or potential customers by completing an action on your landing page that may include filling in a form, signing up, adding a product to cart, or purchasing a product.
