Advertising on Inq7.net via Adbrite

In the last 2 weeks, I’ve been experimenting on advertising my business with Inq7.net via Adbrite. I am running Adbrite on my blog myself so I know that clickthroughs and conversions are very low, much lower than Adsense from experience.

Still Inq7.net’s Technology channel is drawing an average 6,000 uniques and 10,000 pageviews per day, considering the ads are way below the page. For a 30-day text link from Adbrite, I only get to pay around $6.05. Pretty cheap if you ask me, though the ad rates have actually increased ($120) just a few days ago.

I think I got a nice deal there. Adbrite also has conversion tracking so we get to know how many people saw our ad and actually ordered. The ads are recurring by default so I would be good if we’re stuck with the original ad rate of $6.05.

For now, I’m just glad the first sale broke us even. If only there’s a way to use my Adbrite earnings to pay for my Adbrite ads.

  1. Hi Abe!

    Have you tried putting opt-in forms in your Ploghost landing page, and getting Inq7 visitors to sign-up for a series of articles?

    That may help increase your web hosting clients and push you past the break-even mark.

    And if your subscribers don’t sign up for Ploghost? At least you have a list of people interested in web hosting. And as some people often say, the money is in the list. :-)

    We don’t have that one yet. Might try that one with Zookoda. Thanks for the tip.

  4. Who needs advertising when you have a great PayPal4PH campaign and Inq7 picks it up? :P
