Why Advertlets?

Blogosphere October 8th, 2007

Singapore Boleh!Ironically, I didn’t think I’d sign up for blog advertisements until I turned out for the Ping.sg gathering some time back. To me, blog advertising means something like google – you know? You place the ads all day long an no one really clicks on it – and that meant “no clicks, no pay”.

So, why are all the ads around now? Well, for some reason, it seemed to work now, as in, I’m getting paid for just placing ads on my blog. I’m not too sure if people really clicked on it, but apparently income is kicking in sooner than I thought.

One thing about ads from Advertlets is that they are usually localised, meaning, the ads cater to the people from your own country – and in my case, ads from Singapore. Another plus point is that, they are ads that you’d actually be interested in, such as RoomsDB and Manhattan fish Market. I tried Manhattan once about 2 years ago, and would definitely want to try them out again. Hmm.. I wonder if they would consider giving out vouchers to bloggers who advertise them as well.

Come to think of it, it may not be such a bad idea after all. If the advertisers are willing to give out vouchers or, ahem, complimentary meals to bloggers who apply or ask for it, they might actually get better publicity because the bloggers can then blog about their experience utilizing their service or products! Nothing beats a first hand account from someone who had tried them out through their ads.

Perhaps Advertlets might want to consider talking to advertisers about it? I’d be first to volunteer! Of course, please don’t deduct it off from my payout. 😉

    You are pretty right on it, the main attraction I see from Advertlets are the localised contents. Compared to Adsense, it’s alot less fuss.

    @DK: haha! Yes yes! First come first served basis! 🙂

    @marina: yes, you too! haha… 😉 I hope the vouchers are enough

    @Ed: Yup… actually I think I tried out Adsense before. Can’t really remember how it worked out for me. But I have heard of it work for others before… maybe it’s just me?
