No no, not a Visa to another country, but the blasphemous credit card! I am trying not to use my savings at all, and only use my credit card. OSAP is killing me, so I try to only use credit card for emergencies. It sucks not having an income and paying bills. I see my savings slowly decreasing and it is giving me a bad migraine. Thank God I am going to get a cheque from the government soon for the taxes they owe me. That’s like a month’s salary worth.
Anyways, if you see some weird posts advertising something, then yes, I am advertising something. Like duh! I have finally decided that it is about time to make money from writing reviews. It is a lot more profitable than selling ads on my site. Can you imagine that I get over 1200 unique visitors a day, and over 3000 page views, but I have been getting barely a dollar for it a day?
Ad network companies are going broke! I think advertisers are not paying them much of anything, and they end up paying publishers pennies a day. It is sad, but the horrible economy is effecting internet marketing. So, what can I do? I write!
Reviewing other websites is not so bad. Writing a 200 word post for some hefty change that can buy me some electronic device that I have been craving for lately, (yes, I am a nerd) is a lot easier and profitable. I don’t know how many of you have done it before, but I had to really think about it, because I didn’t want my site to be an advertising site. I worked too hard for it to gain an audience to turn it into such a thing. Therefore, I came up with a solution. I write reviews and relate them to myself. I think it makes a lot more sense than making some gibberish up. That’s my tip for the day, and I think it will help out a lot of bloggers out there. Especially the unemployed type ones like my self.
Lately, many people have been emailing me to tell me that they were searching for something totally irrelevant to my site, but ended up on my site because it was on the first page on Google, and they congratulated me for being on the top. When I read those emails, I rose up from my chair, did a funky Arabic belly dance, held my hands up high, and shouted, “Greatness! That’s what I want.” I guess when you are writing for over 3 years about anything and everything, then you slowly reach the top of things. :up:
Therefore, you can easily pinpoint out the advertisement posts that I have written. Whispering: They are categorized as advertisement. Shssh.. Also, if anyone wants me to review their site, and give an honest well written opinion, then tell me. I don’t know if you want to be ripped apart, but any publicity is good publicity! I promise I won’t be evil or a horrible conceited arrogant person like some of you have voted the other day.
