I’m new to the make money blogging niche. This is actually my first week blogging. There’s never a bad time to start offering ads. I am going to be selling as of now three 125×125 ads until I can get enough time to work with my layout. I am selling them for $10 each per month. Here is the catch though. I will leave them up for at least a month. If I don’t have somebody waiting for the spot, and you choose not to readvertise, the spot is yours until somebody claims it. So you could possibly get more than you thought.
Obviously I have really few if any subscribers yet. Well, that will change. I’ve got some friends from a freelance writing site and a forum who have already expressed great interest in my blog, and are just waiting for a link. Next, advertising. I have 9,000 Entrecard credits that I plan to spend on the more expensive blogs on Entrecard. I will start getting in my 600 clicks a day as well. So basically I can pick a blog of my choice to advertise on every other day.
Content is another factor. How would you know that I will be active enough to get this blog started? I have the first 40 posts already written up. I plan to post them one a day after editing them. Throughout this time frame I plan to continue to write more posts to stock up. Eventually I’ll get to the point where I’m going to be writing the daily posts, that day. That won’t happen throughout your advertising period.
As a rather well known make money blogging niche writer bloggernoob once said in a post about taking baby steps towards making money online, “risk vs reward is very high with this type of business”. While this isn’t exactly prevalent to what he was saying at the time of this quote, it does coincide with advertising here. There is some risk in advertising on a new blog, the reward can be great. I have explained several reasons as to why the reward is very likely.
As you will read later tonight, make money niche blogs run a lot of contests. This post was used as my entry for a contest on bloggernoob.com. There are many reasons he would benefit from advertising on my blog, as well as any other make money blogging niche advertiser. First of all, my blog is in your niche. The people coming to this site will be interested in learning how to make money through blogging. If you advertise here, over some of the other entries in the contest you will get targeted traffic versus random traffic. Would you rather pay to advertise a make money blog on a make money blog or a blog with all sorts of random content?
