Choose a Faucet Script
Firstly I will choose a good faucet script. I have no coding skill. So I want to use a simple and safe script to build my faucet.
I searched it for a long time. There are many faucet scripts.
FaucetBox - The earliest and popular faucet script, but I don't want to use it because the UI is not good. You have to re-design it.
Epay.info - Another popular faucet script.
P.S. You can google faucet script or search faucet script on bitcointalk. There are too many scripts.
But I still recommend you using FaucetBox or Epay.ino. After all they are stable and updated continuously.
Ok, back to me.
I will use JQuery-Faucet and I found it on bitcointalk. I really like its design and advanced features. Although it is new but I found the author is still updating his script. I want to try it.
The JQuery-Faucet is not free. The price of the script is $17.6. I think I can accept this price.
So I am ready to do it. And I will update it later. If you have good idea, please add a comment. Lets talk it.
How will I promote my faucet?
First of all, my faucet site is still developing. I have to start to learn that how to promote this "unborn baby".
I think I will try to following traffic resources. The premise is that I don't want to take more cost.
1. Post a thread on forums related bitcoin as many as possible, such as Bitcoin Talk(Mirco Earning)
2. I can try to contact other faucet site and ask to them swap traffic. I don't think it is a good way because it is a new site. May wish to try.
3. I plan to purchase some banners ad on some bitcoin PTC site and bitcoin advertising network. As far as I know, the fee of BTC PTC is not expensive. It will cost 7.76 mBTC for 10K clicks on Bitsforclicks So it sounds good if I can get 10K clicks with that price. I can get a huge bitcoin users quickly. The result will be updated after I purchased.
4. It will be an important part - your affiliate program. The strength of the user is the most powerful. It will be a long-term work. Your affiliate programe should be so attractive that they would like to promote your faucet. As known to us all there are so many bitcoin faucets now , as a new site, I have no skill and funds to develop an innovative faucet site currently. But I believe all of users like a faucet site can offer higher bonus. I am not afriad that I will lose money at the begining. As long as you can work hard and insist on it, you will be rewarded. I will set 100% affiliate commission.
This is my sincerity
I will do my best to run this faucet site.
About Faucet Domain
I am looking for many domains for my faucet site.
Actually the domain is not the most importance for my project. But I just think that a good domain can help people to remeber your site easily, I searched a lot.
If I can get a suitable domain related Bitcoin faucet with a acceptable price, it will be am excellent begining.
The above mentioned is just my preference.
Now I found a nice domain - bfaucet.com It means "bitcoin faucet", so I think it is easy to remeber and type it for users. Unfortunately, it has been registered, but the owner is selling it. Then I google it and found it used to be a bitcoin faucet site. I contacted that owner and they want to sell it with $500. My max budget for this domain is $250.
I am still waiting his reply. If they can accept this price, it will be our faucet domain.
My Bitcoin Faucet Launched!
Finally, now my bitcoin faucet site is launched!! It is really a hard time for me.
The domain is bfaucet.com
You can claim 10-100 satoshis / 5 minutes. Also, you will earn 100% referral commission via our affiliate programe.
Later, I will share my revenue and some ideas continuously.
About Xapo Payment
These days some users send emails to me, and they hope we can add Xapo to our payment system.
Actually our faucet script has xapo payment option, but we don't open it.
I know the Xapo is a famous online bitcoin wallet and many exacellent faucet sites are using it now, such as MoonBitCoin.
Unfortunately we still can't add xapo to our system. Because xapo wallet is not friendly to micro-transactions any more. They changed the fees and start to charged some fees for micro transactions.
Check their official notice: https://in.xapo.com/fees
If we will add it, we have to modify the amount of min withdrawal. Now the faucethub system allow users to withdraw any amount with zero fee.
So I am sorry for the users who using xapa wallet. I think I will add it in future.
CoinAd Advertising Network Review
Last week, we bought some bitcoin traffic from coinad. I know there are many btc advertising networks, and I still choose coinad because they have excellent publishers and good bitcoin traffic resources.
Do not like other bitcoin advertising platform, coinad has strict rules for publishers. It means that if a publisher can not reach their norm, they will not allowed to become a publisher.
So in my opinion, CoinAd is the best bitcoin advertising network.
I purchased about 0.2BTC (1BTC=$1100) CPM and got 2M impressions totally.
At last, bfaucet got 7K clicks and over 4K users, I am so pleased with this result.
If you want to promote your site related bitcoin, the CoinAd is preferred.
