Update: Invites are long gone.
Hey folks, I’ve got a few Blogads invitations to share. Blogads is a decent way to earn a small income from your blogging, but the only way to sign up is by being sponsored by a current member. Jay was cool enough to get me started with it a few months ago, and now I’m paying that forward.
Here’s what they have to say about the blogs that Blogads will work best on:
What is the minimum daily user number a blog should have before they can consider blogads?
Blogs without a laser-sharp focus on one topic or community AND an audience of 1000 readers a day usually do not attract advertisers. But some blogs with a sharp focus AND an audience of thousands a day do NOT get advertisers. One test: have more than a handful of companies expressed an interest in advertising on your blog?
And here’s some info that I found on my ‘sponsor blogger’ page:
Thank you for helping grow the blogads network by sponsoring good bloggers. Invite great bloggers, folks who understand the blogads network is a human collaboration, not an automated cashmachine. Your help is essential to make the network thrive and grab advertising with traditional corporate publishers.
We’ve slotted you with some number of invites. Depending on how well your invitees do (staying sane, writing good posts, exciting advertisers), we’ll add more invites to your account. While you remain a sponsor, you’ll receive 5% of their gross revenues from sales of Blogads.
If you think it may be a good fit for your blog, just leave me a comment or email me and I’ll hook you up as long as the invitations last.
UPDATE: There’s been a lot of interest and now that I’ve given out the first set of invites, I’m making a list of interested bloggers for the next set. Thanks!
