Let’s face it, some bloggers (like me) are just NOT good at sales – especially ad sales! There’s where a company like blogads comes in. I’ve been using blogads for a little over a year now on my celebrity website, and have had pretty good success.
With blogads, you can set your own pricing, your own placement of the ads, and you have the option to decline potential advertisers if you don’t think that they are a good fit with your audience. The hardest part of the entire process was actually getting IN to the network! Your best shot is via referral, and even that can take a while. As blogads says, “in general we’re not accepting new publishers“.
Your blog must have been around for at least 6 months, and they want to see an average of at least 1000 pageviews a day.
They take a 14% commission when ads are purchased through a link on your website. If the sale is initiated on their end, they take a 30% commission.
Paypal, Wire transfer, or check.
Blogads offers 7 different ad sizes (available in jpg/gif or flash):
- Hi Rise (150×600)
- Standard (150×200)
- Mini (150×100)
- Classified (500 characters of text)
Blogads has a pretty broad base of blogs that they accept, with over fifty niches such as parents, liberals, gays, lesbian, baseball fans, tech-lovers, conservatives, New Yorkers, environmentalists, news junkies, milblogs, lawyers, economists, and foodies.
Sample Sites Using Blogads:
PerezHilton, Dailykos, Dlisted and more.
