Earn from your Blog

As an avid blogger since the July 2006 I have rapidly worked my way up through the hosting packages, and as the blog gets more and more popular (thanks readers) the costs of hosting grows too. Although I am not generally a massive fan of advertisements on blogssites, I think the offering from ValueClick media really is something else.

As you may have noticed I have recently enabled ValueClick’s media advertisements on my site. However, sticking to my own beliefs I have disabled all auto-starting video and audio ad’s as I know not many people appreciate them. (Including me) So the only thing you should see are simple and subtle ad’s. I have not done this in order to take early retirement, I have done this to help pay for the hosting my passion for blogging costs me.

So I thought I would share my experience, and enable my fellow blog writers to benefit from the scheme too. There are many advertising companies out there (as you can imagine) some better than others, all offering high gains. However, I think it’s fair to say (in my opinion) ValueClick media have the best interface of them all. The simple point and click design allows you to truly take control of who and what adverts are displayed on your site. Combine that with the in-depth reporting tools and you really do have a powerful tool.

Don’t get me wrong, this is in no way an “Earn £1200 a week” blog post, it will not make you rich (Unless you have a VERY busy site) and I am not trying to sell some sort of pyramid scheme. Just take a few minutes to follow the link to Click and start earning! and all being well, you too will be earning a small investment towards your hosting. Or maybe your Starbucks addiction.. Who knows 🙂 One things for sure, it’s simple to set up, and even easier to maintain. So you really have no excuse not to!

Google AdWords

I have been speaking to a Google AdWords representative recently about advertising for CAB-Travel.com. It’s nice to know that they havn’t even seen any money yet, but there already trying to help us set it up.

As I was busy at work at the time, they have even offered to call me back, which they are doing tonight.. So hopefully by the end of the weekend we will have the Adwords account up and running!

I have also started to work on a 2D barcode application after my visit to Halifax last week, so watch this space for demo’s of that!
