I’ve only just recently joined another affiliate called Cash Burners, but not because their motto is ‘Make So Much Money…..You Can Burn It! It wasn’t even the $50 welcome bonus they are offering all new affiliates. Nope, the reason behind joining Cash Burners had more to do with a particular range of products they had on offer, products that were necessary for my Top Sexual Aids blog. The site is so skewed to the sex industry that I had to search for an add devoid of naked women to use as a banner for this post. :smirk2_ee:
Unlike a lot of affiliates these guys are willing to accept webmasters / bloggers from all over the world. I found this particularly refreshing as it gets a little tiring getting knocked back just because I’m an Australian. Another plus was that they offer 40 – 50% rates on products sold. That alone looked very promising.
The other day I had a bit of free time, something extremely rare in my life, and I decided to explore the site a little further. Much to my surprise they offered more than just sex toys, enhancements, herbal and other products aimed at sexual health.
A product that caught my attention was their Super Cigarette. I’ve always thought that smoking was a filthy habit and it’s always amazed me how people can knowingly pollute their body. It’s not like 50 or so years ago when people were ignorant of the effects that smoking has on their body, as today it’s well advertised and here in Australia there are very graphic images of it’s effects on every cigarette packet sold and still they smoke.
The obvious reason for this is they can’t kick the nicotine habit. I even know of people who have tried nicotine patches and gum but without success, and they find it extremely frustrating because they know of people who were successful using those products.
It kind of makes you wonder whether it’s more than just the nicotine. Perhaps it also has something to do with the routine involved with smoking. Perhaps holding the cigarette and puffing on it has a calming effect? If this is the case then the Super Cigarette could be the answer.
The Super Cigarette looks, feels and tastes like the real thing. The smoker has all the sensations involved with smoking a cigarette but with none of the bad side effects. Imagine being able to get a nicotine fix, without breathing in the cancer causing carcinogens, and other poisons that you find in your normal cigarette.
Rather than me rehashing how this is done, you will get a much more concise explanation of the intricate workings of this electronic cigarette by visiting their Home Page. Perhaps this product can help some people to finally give up smoking.
Doug’s post MrBlogging.com is For Sale! has got me to thinking that perhaps I should lighten my load by selling some of my own sites. Let’s face it, 9 blogs can be a bit much to handle and if I can get a half decent price for one or two of them I’d be foolish not to sell them. Once sold I will have the cash in my pocket and more time to concentrate on my existing blogs.
Doug mentioned Flippa as a site that flips or sells websites, but after checking them out I decided they weren’t for me. I did a bit of searching on the web and I’ve signed up with Sedo who I think offers all the tools needed to buy and sell domains through a very large community of users that come from all corners of the globe.
Using their facilities it is also possible to sell established sites, as long as they meet some simple criteria. Like I said I’ve only just had a quick look around and from what I can tell it involves submitting traffic stats that I assume is used to establish the value of the site. If the stats don’t meet their requirements the site is simply listed as a domain sale.
You can also use Sedo to park your domains which I’ve heard can be quite profitable. They explain Domain Parking as;
Domain Parking is a simple way to earn money from your domains’ natural traffic. If you have registered domain names, but they are not currently being used, then domain parking is a great way to put those domains to work earning you revenue. You can make money without even lifting a finger! The idle domain is used to display relevant advertisements – every time a consumer clicks on one of the advertisements you earn money.
I’ve listed three sites with them as domains and am now waiting for them to be processed which apparently takes a couple of days. I will keep you updated as to how things progress.
OK, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and have a shot at running a blogging contest. It seems that every Tom, Dick and Harry blogger is running one these days so I figured I may as well give it a go.
I reckon that there are two things that make a contest appealing to people. One is that it’s free and easy to enter and the other that it’s relatively easy. Correction, there is a third and very important factor, the prize has to catch the contestants interest.
Let’s start with the prizes.
- First Prize: $20 and I will place a 125×125 banner in my sidebar, in the Wassup Ads section. As you can see that is a premium spot, especially considering this is a PR3 blog.
- Second Prize: $10 and a spot for their 125×125 banner
- Third Price: $5 and they also get to display their 125×125 banner.
So in essence I am paying you to display your banner, now that’s something that doesn’t happen every day.
Now for the rules.
- You need to join my Cool Blog Links site. It’s absolutely free to join and all that is required is that you place a small code on your blog. Once in place it will display the following smal icon as well as enable the site to keep track of certain statistics. Having the icon also allows people to vote for your blog. The top ten also have their ranking displayed within the Icon and I occasionally do posts rewarding the top 10 members with a bit of link luv!
- You need to join my Blogger’s Forum and have at least 5 quality posts up your sleeve. I think, being bloggers who comment regularly on other blogs you all know what is required of you there. If there are any categories you would like me to add just leave me a comment.
- You need to do a post promoting this contest.
- This one is necessary as I need some way to gauge the top three participants. I reckon the easiest way is to use the Top Commentator plugin. So the top three commentators at the end of September who have met all the conditions will be rewarded the prizes.
The contest starts now so that gives everyone time to meet the conditions, but as my top commentator plugin resets every month, that part of it starts on the 1st of September. Naturally I will not be counting any ‘nice posts’ and other non quality comments which will be deleted so as to not be counted at all. I also reserve the right to refuse any banners or sites that I feel are not appropriate for displaying on this blog.
That’s it. Let the contest begin.
Edit: Contest ends on the 30th of September
Thanks Christine for pointing that out.
