I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with blog advertisements. I first started out with Adsense, but my earnings never exceeded USD 85 even after more than a year. Subsequently, I removed the Google ads from my blog. Thought I would swear off blog advertisements but I did get acquainted with payperpost and text link ads. The former, I realised was equivalent to blog suicide but I’m still sticking with text link ads for its non-intrusiveness and somewhat lax requirements. I don’t earn much from text link ads but who’s complaining about passive income?
As some of you may have noticed, I’ve tweaked my blog around to accommodate Nuffnang ads. I’m really happy with the ad revenue that my blog is bringing me via Nuffnang. To be honest, when I first heard about Nuffnang, the first feeling to strike me was relief. Finally, local ads with local content are available to Malaysian bloggers. I’ve always felt that Google ads were terribly out of place on my blog but not with Nuffnang ads. I’m also glad that it’s not a pay per click model…the Nuffnang model, grouping blogs into different payment bands is nothing short of genius! It’s also comforting to know that the duo behind Nuffnang, Tim and Ming are such passionate entrepreneurs with good heads on their shoulders. After chatting with them, Tim especially, understanding their vision and ambitions for Nuffnang, I’d feel it would be criminal for Malaysian bloggers not to support Nuffnang. So far, Nuffnang has served 4 ad campaigns to me and the current one is from Amob.com
Amob.com is a website that provides high quality mobile phone ringtones, wallpapers, games, screensavers and videos for a nominal price. Personally, I’m only into the MP3 ringing tones, which cost RM4 for each. Quite reasonably priced, considering the convenience and quality of the ringing tone. I suppose one could get MP3 ringing tones for free nowadays but this service is great for those who are technologically n00b and who are just in no mood to synchronise the laptop/phone or deal with cables. Just go to Amob.com, set your phone model and voila…time for some shopping.
I’m impressed with the collection of MP3 ringtones that they have. And now, I’m terribly addicted =P
