BAYB Goes Direct with Advertising

Update: I had written this post, then gave members of our email network first shot at advertising. At first I intended for 4 advertisers, through the network I ended up getting responses from 5 people. The first banner is already being displayed by Andrew. Our advertising is already full and sold out. If you’d like to reserve space for next month please let me know. With such a success on the direct advertising we will be opening up another ad spot soon.

Looking at our adsense totals I noticed that we should be making a lot more money with advertising. One of our spots on single posts received over 11,000 impressions but only made about 5$.

Last night I searched and found a great adrotator plugin called WPAds that is exactly what I want. It rotates banners evenly in whichever spot you want.

To start I am looking for up to 4 advertisers to place their banners on our single posts under our comments section. Everyone who leaves a comment will see your banner. This should be especially useful for Comment Fridays. Our blog has 6x more comments than we do posts (639 posts and 4,231 comments).

Have I sold you on the advertising yet?

The banner dimensions can be anywhere from 125×125 to 250×250, basically any banner you have available. The price is only going to be 8$ to start and we’ll see how it goes. We also may look into selling our adsense space directly under the post.

Please leave us a comment if you are interested or contact me directly.
