Making money online

Filed under: Internet,Making money — Joe Brewer @ 6:06 pm

So, after a week of messing around with OpenX (renamed from OpenAds), and getting excited about learning SQL properly (more about that in a later blog post) I have finally put some ads up. I’ve abandoned the OpenX idea for the time being as it has a more complicated interface than I realised.

My first thoughts on choosing ads was to get as many displayed as possible, but I’ve since realised that it is probably a better idea to choose ads that are more in line with the different niches and products that I actually use myself.

Here are my current advertisers:

Hypnosis Downloads
This company is run by Uncommon Knowledge, a company that specialises in training therapists in the use of hypnosis. I trained with them in 2002 and can honestly say it was a life changing experience. I gained so much confidence and so many amazing friends in the process, plus it has allowed me to help alot of people less fortunate than myself. Hypnosis Downloads has the largest inventory of downloadable hypnosis mp3 files on the net.

What’s not to say about Godaddy? One of the biggest domain registrars on the net. I’m not sure about their hosting as I’ve never tried it, but as a registrar they are excellent in my experience.

Text Link Ads
I’ve been using Text Link Ads on my blog for quite a while now and think it’s an excellent way to monitize a blog. After installing the ad code on your site, there’s nothing much else to it except letting the dollars flow in!

So there we have it. I’m going to implement OpenX so that I can track the ads better, and try some different advertisers but I’m on my way to making a few more dollars now.
