So, I am in the process of changing ALL ads on my blog except adsense simply because they don't do well, I use Commision Junction for many of my ads but with no luck.
CJ offers partners like Go Daddy, Groupon, and a few really good ones but if you don't generate revenue then they cancel your account and you have to re-instate your account and it's a total pain! Not to mention that people actually have to buy something for you to make money which is really hard.
Has anyone else used CJ with any luck?
What ad companies do you use that do well?
The only one that works for me is Adsense, I love it!
No all those are garbage in my opinion. What has worked great for me is having a good blog with good content, social networking, etc and then offering advertising myself. I have an advertising page but I also have a gig on FIVERR.com where I sell 125 x 125 ads for $5 for 30 days! If you look at my right sidebar, it is filled with those ads. =)
I lost money the last time on FIVERR as a seller, but I was selling crafts before they allowed for shipping charges. I just reactivated my account. I really hope to find my nitch on that site. It has so much protential
I am having luck with CJ. My blog Dawns Delightsis about scrapbooking and Genealogy. So many of my posts, I have been posting the links. Not just placing them on the side. I only will take a promotion that has to do with what I write about. I don't want to try to sell cookware when my blog is about scrapbooking genealogy, researching your history, and coupons. So far this month I made 10.20 on CJ, but only 1.55 on adsense. My blog is doing ok- hit 1000+ views this month. I know not as well as some, but with 105 followers and increase from 744 last month, Im happy...
Another site I just joined that is more for saving money, coupons, and such isEscalate Media Network. It took me a few months before trying it, but other ladies were making big money with it. Ive made 5.00 so far in two weeks, building still :)
