Just How Annoying Is The Sore Thumb Plugin

Sore thumb

In my last post, The Latest Technique To Beat Ad Blindness, I introduced you guys to a brand new plugin, one that I believed would resolve the ad or banner blindness issue that we’re currently experiencing. In that post I used several examples to show people some of the many ways it uses to get your readers attention so that they will click on your links. Perhaps I used too many example because some of the commentators left comments that they found those types of ads annoying.

I’ve only personally come across one blog which used the plugin and rather than being annoyed I was intrigued. So much so that I bought the plugin. Now don’t get me wrong, I hate those popup ads, you know the type; you’re reading a post and then all of a sudden it pops out obscuring your view asking you to subscribe to their list or something. It stays there in your face until you find the ‘x’ so that you can close it.

Not so with the Sore Thumb plugin. (BTW, that was the Tada! effect. You can see some of the other effects in the post I linked to at the beginning) While in that post I had it set up so that it got activated every few seconds, but you can also set it to activate once it reached a trigger point, Like I’ve done for this one, the trigger point being when it comes up from the bottom of the page. It won’t activate again unless they scroll the page back down past the trigger point. Try it so you can see what I mean.

The question is how annoying do people find it? I reckon the only way to really find out is to run a poll. The poll requires you to vote twice, once to voice your opinion as to how annoying you find it and secondly to show whether or not you would click on the link if you found it interesting or relevant.

I believe because the plugin is relatively that if you’re not already a member now is the time to join JVZoo so you can promote it to your readers. Naturally the best way to do that is to have your own copy because they’re more likely to buy from you if they see you’re using it and are exited by it, just as I am.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist but to play with the plugin just one more time. Go on, click on it you know you want to. :wink_ee: Besides, you’re always complaining that you don’t have anything to promote on your blog. This could be your first and you can use it to promote it to your readers.

Naturally I would love for you to leave a comment but lets not forget the poll. For as to get the best result we need to get as many people to take part in it as possible and the best way to do that is to share the post with your friends through the social media of your choice. Surely I don’t have to make that wobble as well  :tongue_laugh_ee:

The Latest Technique To Beat Ad Blindness

banner blindness

Don’t you hate it when you’re doing all the right things, or think you’re doing all the right things, to monetize your blog but it’s just not working. You’ve researched the right affiliates and you link to them from within your post or you place a banner that is supposed to get them clicking on it but nothing happens. Have you ever wondered why this is so? Could it possibly have anything to do with that thing called ad blindness? You know, where people are so used to seeing ads on the web that they are blind to them.

So, if this is true what we need is a way to overcome ad blindness so that we can get those guys to start clicking on them. Ages ago I did a post which explained how one way around it was to use a rotating banner plugin. In those days it was pretty revolutionary because it overcame showing readers just one banner every time they came to your blog. Once installed they were presented with a different banner every time the page was refreshed.

Then I reviewed a plugin that I still use today, and one that was proven to work. I wrote about it in a post called How To Get Visitors To Click A Link.Today I want to introduce you to a brand new plugin that is guaranteed to get your visitor’s attention.

How Wp Zon Builder Is Going To Make Me Money In 2013

WP Zon builder plugin

I’ve been alluding to a new niche blog I’ve started for awhile now and I’ve been busting to tell people about it, so much so that I did tell my list members which did make me feel somewhat more relieved. Before I introduce that blog to you guys though I want to tell you why, after already having so many blogs, I would want to start another niche blog.

It all has to do wit an experiment I was conducting with {WP-Zon-Builder}. If you have been following my blog you would have noticed that leading up to Christmas I was doing a daily post offering ideas of what I believed would make great Christmas gifts. I was only able to do this because of Wp Zon Builder because it made it all so easy. At the end of that month upon checking my Amazon stats I saw that those posts generated 41 product clicks and of those 4 sales. That’s the first time I’ve ever generated 4 sales in one month via my Amazon links!

I actually didn’t expect to get any that year because I knew those posts probably wouldn’t even be listed on any of the search engines yet because that all takes time. This Christmas should be a different story and this is why I decided to start my latest niche blog The Gifts Guru! In the twelve months leading up to Christmas I hope to have this blog popping up all over the search engines giving people the gift ideas that their looking for.

{SkimLinks} is going to be another very important factor in monetizing my gifts idea blog. As a SkimLinks member I’m able to monetize that blog using some of the most popular online shops as places to buy those gifts. I’ve started a list of those stores on a page of the blog called, what else but Online Stores. The beauty of those links is that every time someone clicks on one of them they are a potential customer and if they buy something I’ll get my commission. I wrote all about SkimLinks in the post called How Every Blogger Can Finally Monetize Their Blogs.

Naturally I want to give potential customers the best experience while visiting the blog so I’ve hosted it on {inmotion hosting} so that it will load quickly. I’m also using techniques listed in my post on How To Optimize Your WordPress Blog to ensure that it continues to load quickly. Naturally I’m also using the FlexSqueeze theme because it offers all the best features and it’s so easy to make the blog look the way I want it to.

I’ve also been researching other plugins which I hope will increase my blogging income in 2013. You may want to join my list to make sure you don’t miss out on any future posts which you may use to help you increase your own income :wink:
