I received my first advertiser for this site and have placed them under “Supporting Sites” – and they came through LinkWorth. We have used their services quite successfully for about a year now and we receive several hundred dollars a month from them for advertising we would not otherwise have. If you’re looking for another stream of income besides adsense and Chitika eMiniMalls, this program can compliment them quite well.
I’m surprised at how quickly I was able to get one as I wasn’t sure what the reaction to journals such as this one would be. I only listed this site in my account there a couple of weeks ago and had heard that journals had a more difficult time attracting sponsors. I think having the site updated almost daily along with a standard domain helped a lot.
Since this site is only a few months old, I placed the price for the ad at $24.95 – linkworth takes a 30% cut meaning that I will get approximately $17.50 a month for it. Not fantastic, but certainly not terrible. If I can get another 5 like it, it gives me a base of $100 coming in not counting any revenue from adsense or Chitika eMiniMalls. I’m not sure if this first supporter was good luck or the start of a trend for this site (hope, hope), but either way is was worth placing the site into the LinkWorth system even for this one supporter (note: I do get a small referral bonus if you sign up through my link, but would recommend them even without it). If you have any questions about the program, feel free to leave a comment and I’ll try to answer it.
