    How does a site like Hotukdeals make money?

    Been reading up on how to make money by creating a website. It seems the only way is to have affiliates and adverts on webpage, in hope that people will click it and then purchase something. Yet HUKD has no adverts am i missing something? Is it possible to earn money just through poeple visiting a site?

    Yup. If you buy something through this site, then they get cashback.

    Most "deals" posted will have a referral link added, so that when you click (or purchase either this item or maybe one in the future from that site), HUKD gets a kickback.

    The costs of running a site like this isn't cheap, but it makes a very sizable profit nonetheless. Wished I'd have thought the idea up.

    Is that why Quidco have changed the look of their site too???

    Richard Branson owns lots of companies. Does this mean they are all the same company?

    Mind you. Richard Branson wouldn't mind being a £1 behind Pauls income! X)

    not really personal, its obviously a business

    Either way the treatment of customers is too stern, time to head to TCB and look for an alternative to hotukdeals.
    I am a heavy duty user of quidco and a regular user of the deals section. But just started using the for sale section, my advert has been expired immediately 3 times in the last 2 weeks due to heavy handed approach to their advert "vetting" process.

    It was easier to get a job at the Serious Organised Crime Agency, after they've checked your personal bank account history and investigated your close family, than it is to try place an ad on this site.

    Well I'm not sure of the exact business model but I know I generate traffic

    so if you list a deal from a site that doesn't carry a referral program, how do they make money then?
