So last night I was hit with an interesting dilemma. I've been working at building Blueroof Productions for over a year now full time. Before that I would work on it in my spare time. And in this past year we have grown by leaps and bounds. The one thing we haven't been able to do yet is monetize the company. The best way to do that would be advertising. So a few weeks ago I reached out to Google AdSense. The number one place to go to ad ads to your website. They told me that I didn't have enough text on here to get a pass. Now keep in mind that while I do a daily blog and once in a while a review for a movie, this website is for my production company. We make things. Movies, short films, skits, podcasts, short stories and soon comic books. There is a lot for people to do on here, it just doesn't happen to be text related.
So not wanted to be discouraged I started going out to other online ad agencies. It is amazing how different the rest are to Google AdSense. AdSense would put ads to stuff my visitors would like, such as www.mycomicshop.com where as these other ad sites would put ads sending people to sites that Norton warns stay away stay away! All the sudden you couldn't click on a page without pop ups. If that is the only way to make money using ads than it isn't worth it. We'll just do it the long way. We will continue to build and build until we have a large enough audience to get ads directly from companies we want to promote. Old School like.
If any of you guys know an ad site that using discreet ads like AdSense please let me know. Thank you!
