Second Banner Ad Slot Sold!
August 9, 2008 by Gaman
Barely a day after the first ad slot was approved; another slot was snatched up by Ben of WorldRec.Info. Thanks Ben!
In his blog, Ben writes about the unconventional world records with a twist. Records that according to him are probably not available in the Guinness Book of World Records or Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
For a dose of unconventional stories to beat the office or work boredom I suggest you check out this blog.
So far I’ve made around USD50 – minus the PayPal payment fee of US1.15 for each banner purchase – from direct ad deals.
Ideally, I wish this happened without me lifting a finger but sadly that’s not the case if you consider the work involved in upgrading Sabahan.com template, the cost of the template & plugin purchase as well as all the previous efforts I’ve put into maintaining and establishing trust in this blog.
If you think my rates are expensive, wait until I raise the price hehe. A text link ad in this blog will set you back for around US50 to USD100 per link. A review ordered via ReviewMe.com will cost you at least USD100. So what’s USD25 compare to those rates not to mention, it includes a mention in my blog post for free. My aim is to give as much exposure to my advertisers at a nominal cost.
So what’s next? I am aware that I will need to be pro-active when seeking advertisers so here are some of the places where I plan find them.
I’ve seen several blogs advertising on Sabahan.com via AdSense so why not get in touch with them, help them save money buy cutting the middle man? Chances are, they might be interested since they know Sabahan.com traffic is targeted to their own niches.
Regular Sabahan.com readers
Most probably know what Sabahan.com is all about. Enough said
Other advertisers using other advertising platforms besides AdSense
If they are willing to pay to advertise here, why not offer a better deal directly plus better visibility to boot?
Now, I’ve an offer for those who are the first to purchase empty ad slots here at Sabahan.com. If you buy now, you’ll pay the same rate as your first purchase for your next purchase.
As an example, Ben and nyst will only have to pay USD25 for their next purchase even though it’s made several months from now when my ad rates would have been much higher than they are today.
