Three Ways To Increase Your Ad Space Earnings

I reckon it’s pretty safe to say that a lot of bloggers out there would love to increase their blog’s earning capacity.  Some choose to do paid posts while others will promote their affiliates . Almost all bloggers use Google Adsense but I bet there are also a whole heap of bloggers who would love to sell some advertising space on their blogs.

I know this to be true because I’ve seen so many blogs doing it. The only problem is that I believe most of them are going about it all wrong. I’m pretty sure that most visitors that happen on their blog don’t even know that their are ad space available.

I thought that seeing how I now have a PR4 blog, now would be a great time to promote my own ad spaces, and this is how I plan to do it.

  1. Advertise Page: I think this is essential part of your sales plan as it will tell prospective clients why they should spend their hard earned cash to purchase an ad space on your blog. This page can be likened to a squeeze or sales page. Apart from blatantly promoting the positive aspects of your blog, it would also be a great idea to inform them of the cost of doing business with you.
  2. Contact Page: This is also essential in case someone wants to ask you a specific question.
  3. Customer Service: As you can not physically be there you will need something that will automate the whole process of selling the ad space to your customer. This can be considered customer service. Without this, it can be likened to a shop full of customers with not a single salesman to make the sale. If a customer can’t find what he wants they will simply leave and you will lose the sale. I’ve found the ideal product to fulfill this important function. It’s called OIOpublisher.

Although OIOpublisher is not free it is worth every cent as it gives you complete control and you get to keep all the revenue raised. You can even use it to display your own affiliate ads with the knowledge that it will displace those ads whenever someone pays to place an ad on your blog. Whilst it can be placed on any site that uses PHP and for those of us who are smart enough to use WordPress, you get a handy plugin that is loaded with features.

Rather that rehash all it’s features it’s probably best to visit OIOpublisher website.  As to the cost, it is a low $47, but once it is up and running it shouldn’t take you long to recoup the money. Actually they are running a little promotion during the month of November. If you buy one this month and quote the following coupon code: FAWKES-WASSUP, you will receive $10 off the price, bringing it down to an affordable $37.

While I haven’t made a fortune with OIOpublisher I can safely say that until this post and my Advertising Here page, I haven’t really tried. Even so, I’ve made enough to cover it’s cost. so everything from here on is profit.

Shocking October Stats Not So Shocking

As time flies by so quickly that it’s almost imperceivable to the average person, one comes upon that special time of the month where those of us post our stats for the month that’s left us in it’s wake.

That month just happens to be October and I really expected to have a pretty dismal earning report to post. This is because October turned out to be so busy in my personal/business life that I didn’t do all that much blogging, or even commenting.

And yet, once I checked all the stats, although it was less than the previous month, I was very pleasantly surprised.

  • Adsense: $24.87
  • Voxsant: $0.14
  • Kontera: $0.07
  • Clix Galore: $0.25
  • Chitika: $0.90
  • Infolinks: $2.46
  • Advertisers: $10
  • Commission Junction: $100
  • E-Junkie: $39.00
  • Jumbo Affiliates: $8.10
  • RegNow: $0.00
  • Paid Posts: $0.00
  • Commission Monster: $7.43
  • Amazon Associates: $0.00
  • CashBurners: $0.00

TOTAL: $193.22

Just shy of $200 by a few bucks, but considering that my Adsense earnings was up I was pretty rapped with the month’s takings. I’ve decided to give Kontera the flick as it really isn’t performing all that well, and give it’s spot to Infolinks.

The biggest earner, once again was Commission Junction, and I reckon it has a lot to do with my ‘Pop Quiz’ that I have below my header, so even though I’ve had a couple of people tell me that I should change it, I reckon I’ll leave it be awhile longer.

How To Turn Off The Internet On The iPhone

No way, he tells me, I’ve only ever used the Wi-Fi while at home so there’s no way this bill should be that high. Well it is, and it’s all because the iPhone has a tendency to connect to the Internet, even when Wi-Fi is present.

In my search for a way to turn this stupid feature off I found that he is not alone in getting a huge phone bill. Anyway, even though this problem has been around since 2007, Apple in all it’s wisdom hasn’t included a setting to turn it off. Sounds a little fishy wouldn’t you say?

Still, they have made it possible to download a utility to help you solve this situation, but it was way over my head, and I couldn’t find any instructions on how to make the thing do what I wanted it to do.

Hours later after a lot of Googling I came across an extremely simple solution. It will require you to type into your iPhone’s Safari, the following url; Yeah, I know, it means connecting to the Internet, but it will be for the last time.

Unfortunately this link no longer works. Probably because the new iPhones do have a setting to turn off the internet.

Click on the “Continue” tab. From there you simply choose the “Disable Data (Fake APN)” setting and choose “Install”. It’s pretty simple from there on. Now you will only be able to connect to the Internet via the Wi-Fi.

If you ever want to have the facility to connect to Internet, simply go to ‘Settings’ and remove ‘Fake APN’ from Profile.

For those of you that really want to help others who may be having this problem, the quickest and most efficient way, other than to verbally tell family and friends, would be to Stumble, Digg, Tweet or by using the many other forms of social interactive sites.
