It’s no secret. Once your blog starts becoming popular and reaching your desired audience. Advertisers come knockin on your web door wanting a piece of the action. This has recently happened to me. I have received a lot of inquiries about advertising on my website lately. I don’t plan on bombarding you with irrelevant ads but I do hope to share content you may find beneficial.
This is an example of what you won’t find on my website. 🙂
I found a great article describing a plug-in you can add to your WordPress site to make it easy for advertisers to pick the banner size they are interested in, pay you through paypal and email you the html code. The plug-in is called CrankyAds. You can see how it works by looking at the right side of my website. Look for the banner squares that say advertise here.
