The basic advice before selling your blogs
John Chow has written something really helpful to those who are planning to offer their blog/s as an advertising venue for potential clients. Â When you reach out to an advertising network it would help to have these few simple points nailed. Â Let me summarize things for you and ad a little “tip” as well.
- Have a domain name – you need an easy recall and easy to type domain name. Â It should be yours too. Â While having your ISPs domain name works, having your own domain name makes you a little professional. Â Domains are easy to acquire, install and use. Â Go to godaddy.com and get one for less than $10. Â You can try listening to GeekBrief.tv too, I know Cali Lewis gives GoDaddy.com codes thereby saving you a few extra bucks. Having a domain name and using it as your emails domain address proves ownership or affiliation to the domain too. Â It’s a little tricky but believe you me, if you say own “mygadgets.com” and plan to sell ad space to bestbuy or circuit city… your email needs to be “[email protected]”… professional, shows ownership, and er… cool.
- Have a completed about page – the first page that the ad network jumps to is the About Page. Â They’d like to know a little more about you. Â After you hand in your ad proposal, and if they’re at all interested, they’d hit your page right away to find out more about you, your webpage/blog or your company. Â So you gotta have a completed about page.
