I have been a paid blogger, in that I’ve been paid to do posts advertising certain products and services, and I have learned over the years that there are a whole lot of advertisers out there willing to pay good money to have their links and selected keywords out on the blogosphere for the search engines to pick up on. They do this because that realize the potential for exposure that blogs represent and knowing this has led to the emergence of sites such as Pay Per Post, Blogsvertise, Smorty, Review Me and a myriad of others that are willing to act as a medium for Bloggers and Advertisers, and doing quite well out of it as well.
Advertisers will pay a minimum of $5 to hundreds of dollars for a post of up to three hundred words depending on the PR (PageRank) of the blog. The problem is that the actual post is only on the front page of the blog for a short time before it disappears into the archives. After that it all depends on the prowess of the blogger in regards to SEO and Key Word selection on whether or not it will ever be seen again.
It makes much more sense to pay for either a link or a banner on the front page of a blog as it is there right until the ad runs out getting maximum exposure. Knowing this to be true I am offering several key spots on this blog for those who are interested with the guarantee that your link will stay on the front page for as long as you are willing to pay for the spot. Because this blog is brand new and has yet to receive a PR prices for a spot will be more than reasonable. Naturally I will be trying to get maximum exposure for WassupBlog and you may be interested to know that my last two blogs received a PR3 in under three months. The main point to remember is that you are guaranteed that your link will always be on the main page and will not be lost in the archives like a normal paid post would.
OK, so let’s talk turkey! How much will it cost for you to advertise on this blog? Let’s look at the options.
- A simple link will only cost $1 per month unless your link is at the top in which case it will be $5
- 117×30 button only $2 per month
- 124×124 square only $2.50 per month
- 468×60 banner only $3 per month displayed at the bottom of the blog
- 468×60 banner at the top of the blog will only set you back $5 per month
These prices will only increase once the PR is achieved and until then I will keep them at the low price structure..
