MarketBeat's opt-in ads are available to publishers of finance and investing websites that receive a minimum of 50,000 page views each month and receive 70% or more of their traffic from visitors in the United States. Participating publishers must also be able to receive payments via PayPal.

How much can I earn from MarketBeat's affiliate program?
You will earn $2.00 for each unique valid lead that comes through the MarketBeat opt-in forms that you place on your website. The opt-in rate for the MarketBeat pop-up tends to hover around 0.5%. This means you can earn approximately $8.00-$10.00 for every 1,000 people that visit your website by running all three of our opt-in forms on your website.

What is considered a valid lead?
A valid lead is an email subscriber that signs-up for the MarketBeat newsletter through the opt-in form placed on your website. The lead must not already be on our mailing list and must also be confirmed either by opening any email we send to them or by clicking on a link in the confirmation email(s) they receive.

Can I place the MarketBeat opt-in form on all of my websites?
If you run multiple websites in the finance and investing space, we're happy to work with you on all of your websites (as long as they meet certain minimum quality guidelines).

What ad-units are available?
MarketBeat currently has a pop-up opt-in form, a below-the-post opt-in form and a sidebar opt-in form that you can place on your website. In order to maximize your revenue, we recommend running all three units. In most cases, the pop-up opt-in form will generate substantially more revenue than the other opt-in forms available.

Will MarketBeat's opt-in forms reduce my other ad revenue?
We've done extensive testing to determine whether running our opt-in forms adversely affect revenue from other ad networks. Our long-term test results indicate that the performance of other ad network's ads are not negatively impacted by the addition of MarketBeat's opt-in forms.

No. All three opt-in forms combined require less than 15KB of HTML, JavaScript and CSS. This represents 1-2% of the typical amount of data that is downloaded with each page load.
