It was back in 2000 when I launched my 1st IM site and I admit it was a total failure! I closed the site in 2003 packed my bags and moved to California to start a new life. However the failure of that small business of mine always gnawed at me...I hate failure! So I started an affiliate dating / PUA blog (2006) however that too failed.
Starting in 2010 I started a review blog for a sub-niche of dating / PUA that I was really passionate about!
That is when things began to change and I saw results. I was making good 'pocket money' but I wanted to take it to the next level. I hired (from Odesk) a web designer to totally revamp my blog / site and also started a newsletter (using Aweber).
Within 2 months my sales began to double and I was getting subscribers (slowly but surely). Scouring the net I learned a boat load of information and took my business seriously. It was only this year that I started using pay-per-click adverting (mainly POF and Hexagram) and my income began to double month-to-month.
Now my brain is pumping out ideas seeing if 'content adverting' is the way to go? There are so many networks to choose from I was wondering if there are any Warriors using 'Native Ad Adverting' with great success?
Just wondering what are your favorites? Also which do thing would convert better for dating type traffic?
I guess my real question is - should I stick with PPC or go for native ad adverting as well? Just wondering what the experts think?
