I have posted a question related to this back in 2012. Basically, it is my sister's blog and now that we have stepped the stage of a new-comer in the industry and now we want to make some money out of it. We focus on three money making methods for now:
1. banner advertising (they pay a monthly fee to advertise on our blog).
2. PPC advertising (we get commision on clicks.
3. Commercial content ( $15 per commercial article).
The last one seems the most doable but the fact is that personalities call her and ask for the price (she has the lowest price), then they agree and ask where to make the payment and suddenly dissapear. And it has been three of these today and the fourth this week and now she seems desperate. Are these potentials just tire-kickers looking for the lowest and is there any method to fix this? I would gratefuly become their ad rep but I want to invest my time into offline consulting for now. I know I could help her but it will get boring for me pretty fast.
Let me see your suggestions.
