What are Adbrite and Text Link Ads

If you’ve been following Blogtrepreneur for a while, you will have noticed the constant changes that I make to the site to optimize performance and to make reading my articles enjoyable and profitable!
As well as adding channels to my Google Ads, I have also attempted to sign up with the publisher programs at AdBrite and Text Link Ads (aff). Unfortunately they do not look very favourable on .blogspot.com domain names, so its a good job that I’ll be changing that soon!

But many of you might be wondering what these two sites offer, and it is this which I will be explaining in this post…

Adbrite considers itself as an e-commerce site, but instead of selling items and electronics, it sells spaces on people’s websites.

If you are an advertiser, you can visit Adbrite’s marketplace, or visit the “Your Ads Here” link on the Publisher’s website. Then you can pay for a certain period, and your ad will be placed on the publisher’s site, with Adbrite taking a percentage of the sale price.

If you want to sell adspace on your site, then all you need to do is sign up with Adbrite, submit your site, and then put a snippet of html in the place you would like your ads to appear. Its pretty simple. Any money you earn will be sent to you in check form, so to sum up, Adbrite basically does all the hard work for you. Of course, you will be able to approve ads that appear on your site.

Text Link Ads, considers itself as a “premier targeted traffic and link popularity ad firm”. The concept of the site is similar to that at Adbrite.
As an advertiser you can buy adspace on any site that is selling their webspace.
As a publisher you can sell adspace to anyone and you can drive people to TLA through their generous affiliate scheme. What I like most about TLA, is that fact that they pay directly through Paypal, so there’s no waiting for checks to arrive!

To conclude, if you’re looking for yet more ways to get more revenue off your blog, or infact, off any site that you own, then Adbrite and Text Link Ads (aff) certainly get high ratings from me!
