Sabahan.com Is Now Accepting Direct Advertising

Last modified on 9th August, 2008

The new design for Sabahan.com has been completely rolled out and Sabahan.com is now able to accept direct advertising from interested parties.

With this I am able to determine my own rates, cut the middle man and have more control regarding how and which ads to display… finally!

One ad spot as you may notice has been taken by nyst.wysrt of Xerrascope as the first direct advertiser at Sabahan.com. As a token of appreciation, I wish to thank him for the purchase and I would like to recommend my readers to check out his blog: Xerrascope

What Do You Get For Advertising At Sabahan.com?

In addition to having your ad displayed on all pages, all new advertisers will get a mention in my blog post to ensure that you will get more exposure with maximum returns at nominal cost. Compare that to a review on this blog via ReviewMe.com, which will cost you at least USD100.

Sabahan.com focuses on blogging & WordPress, Internet marketing, SEO, online advertising, technology and more. When you advertise here, you’ll be able to attract traffic targeted to your own niche. All ad spots are located above the fold, in the most visible areas to ensure maximum exposure.

From time to time, I’ll run contests in order to attract more traffic and inevitably some visitors will end up visiting your blogs via your ad.

How Much Does It Costs to Advertise At Sabahan.com?

There are several ad zones that you could purchase from.

125×125 on the sidebar
At the time of this writing, there are three slots left. I charge USD25 with nofollow for a 30 days duration or USD30 without the nofollow tag in your ad. Your ad will not be rotated but it will be displayed on the exact slot you’ve purchased appear randomly in any one of the four slots throughout the ad duration.

Banner Top 486×60

It costs USD50 for a 30 days duration to advertise on this spot or USD60 without the nofollow tag in place. Like the 125×125 sidebar ad, your ad will not be rotated with other ads. It’ll be served without any adjacent ads to ensure exclusivity.

300×250 Inline Ads
This spot is ideal if you want the best exposure for your message. Your ad will be displayed inline alongside all my posts.

While AdSense ads are still being served, they are there to fill unsold spaces. Once a purchase is confirmed, your ad will replace those inline AdSense ads immediately.

Your ad will be displayed for a 30 days duration at merely USD100 or USD120 without nofollow in place. Note that there will be a maximum of 3 ads rotated in this slot.

How Do I Pay For My Purchase?

For the time being, I’m only able to accept payments via PayPal. However, if you have accounts with MayBank2u.com.my or CIMBClicks.com.my, I’ll be happy to accept payments via direct transfer in an equivalent Malaysian Ringgit according to the exchange rates at the time of the purchase.

This is an introductory offer. All prices quoted above are valid for a limited time only and the low price won’t last forever. So if you are undecided yet, I’m telling you that the time to order is now before I increase the price 😉

  • Rice Blogger says:

  • joerzoe says:

    Wow Sabahan now has one more extra income sell direct advertisement.Congratz dude.

  • Azmeen says:

    Hmm… it’s funny you messed the URL of your first customer 😛

    It’s actually quexerra.com and not Xerrascope.com (an expired domain – hosting a parked page).

    Hope this will be fixed soon 🙂

    • Gaman says:

      Haha. XerraScope is the name of the blog and I shouldn’t have put .com there. But it’s pointing to the correct location.

      • Azmeen says:

        No probs. It was an honest mistake and I just wanted to point it out.

        Respect your swift response, and if I had the moolah, I’d advertise here too 🙂

  • eshark says:

    Hi Gaman, how’s Bali? Hope you had really good time there.

    Since you didn’t mention, what about the ad format? do you accept animated ad? such as gif file.. and do I have to provide my own ad banner or the price offered are included with the ad banner itself?

    • Gaman says:

      Bali was cool. Sadly this blog is strictly for business and I don’t think I’ll write about the trip here.

      I accept images in GIF (animated or static), JPEG and PNG. The advertisers have to design their own banner and link it from their own server.

      I’ll create an advertising page soon to list down the requirements and TOS. Your feedback is appreciated.

  • shun2u says:

    ya, i think better u show the stats of your blog, then sure will many advertisers advertise in your blog. Me is the 1st..hehe..

  • Gaman says:

    Good question. In the past when I conducted a contest, Sabahan.com gets around 800-1000 visitors daily. On a normal day, it averages at 400 to 600 unique visitors daily. While that may not seem much to some people, they are highly targeted traffic and interested in my content.

    As I’ll also be mentioning your blog in my post, it’ll be read by over 680 readers too.

    One of the posts that people are looking forward to is the 50 most influencial blogs which I’ll update soon. This post alone attracted over 2000 to 3000 visitors daily. Although the page view doesn’t reflect this because the value was somehow lowered after I removed the WP Super Cache plugin.

    Advertisers who are looking for a way to attract the Malaysian audience might want to consider this.

    PS: BTW we are having problem with the mail server – we can receive emails but having problem replying. So if you have sent an email and haven’t got a reply yet, I do apologize. We are looking into this and will fix it asap.

    maybe advertiser will interested after they see the stats…
