The goal of creating engaging and original content is always uppermost in the mind of the blogger. The popularity and ultimate success of a blog depends on the efforts of the blogger to create content that is unique, relevant and insightful.
Capturing the attention of the potential audience and then maintaining it requires consistent efforts to keep the blog content current and interesting.
Once a certain level of audience loyalty has been built it only makes sense to use the blog as a tool for generating revenue. Advertising on blogs can be a valuable means to create an additional source of income.
The most common way to begin advertising on your blog is to use one of many widely-used third party ad serving solutions. They are most prevalently in use by many blogs and websites. They have become popular because of the ease with which they integrate with blogs and websites.
Ad serving solutions consist of an adserver with built-in user controls, and a user interface that allows the user to create and display ad slots on their website or blog in a series of quick steps. The process is usually uncomplicated and seamless.
Control over Content and Delivery
Adserver applications are sophisticated enough to then populate the ad slots on the blog or website with advertisements that are relevant to the content of the website. This encourages users to respond to the advertising placed by the ad serving application on the blog or website.
Complete control over the advertising content on your website or blog can be gained by using an adserver application. This is an excellent advantage since there is a process of approval before advertising appears on your website or blog even if you allow your advertising partners access to your adserving system. The process becomes automated with one step of approval required from you for the quick and efficient delivery of ads to your blog or website.
Control over Cost and Revenue
Your own adserver application allows you to control the cost of your ad slots, with the ability to decide and determine the price you wish to set for each ad spot.
Revenue generated from each ad that is clicked is directly deposited in your account, as per the settings that you create in your adserving solution’s admin area. Automated and secure payment processing allows you complete control over your advertising revenue.
Reporting and Management
Adserver applications allow you to monitor the performance of your advertising campaigns. Comprehensive and detailed reporting allows you to check the effectiveness of your campaigns, and manage them to gain the maximum advantage and profit possible.
By allowing advertisers access to the system but having the ability to approve or disapprove ad content, and having complete control over the cost and revenue generated by ads, adserver applications provide an excellent opportunity for regaining ownership of the content of your blog or website.
