Since Passion fruit ads announced their monthly fees . It's been the talk of the town , preferably blog town . Many blogggers (including me) were in quite dilemma of upgradation or not-to-upgrade.
Though passion fruit is no doubt a premium service and I guess there's hardly any other same service as pf .
But the first question in my mind was "is it okay to upgrade ?" I was being nostalgic .
But I made up a list that has got my all answer . Probably you'd have same concerns so we can see it.
I gotta give back:
Since I started doing sponsorship, many peeps joined me so it was on me to bring traffic for them as well as for my own blog . That obviously required sponsorship on other blogs, so if I could make money with my own blog , I had to give my blog something in return . As pf service was suitable for it , I went for it. Just as give something and have something.
An appreciation :
Say or not , but it's an ad network. If people have been using it for free for so long , it may cause a little lose . Quite like I do a blog design but don't get paid . My first reaction would be....... WHY ? I did your work and you're not willing to pay. I am not saying about swaps, I did them myself . But if passion fruit is needing their appreciation now, it's fair.
Depending on blog:
When I first started sponsorship, I was a middle sized blogger. So of course it wasn't a piece of crown and didn't work well . I learned to grow my blog , making a network and a good traffic. Then I went through sponsorship again. This time , it worked. So it's all about size as well . I bet once you're super fit for all things needed for good sponsorship, it wouldn't hurt you to use pf once again.
Perhaps that're the reasons I have been here , but it's just a deal . If I keep making bucks with it , I willl carry on . If I am not , perhaps I wouldn't use second time . Just keeping a room to try everything . Let's see what happens.
Enough said, now if you're doing it all manually, here goes some advices.
1- If you're doing it without any ad service, be sure yo're keeping an eye on ad dates and handling. With right size and stuff.
2- To check how ads are doing progress, use a short linking (like Bit.ly or Buffer app) to keep the click history and ads progress.
3- Some other ad networks instead of passion fruit? You can see Adproval ( it uses amazon payments instead of PayPal and therefore is only available for US ) or skyscraper ads.
4- Use hyperlink that includes nofollow tag and opens in new tab so your blog can't be ignored.
With all that , if you're not using pf , you can still buy ads from other blog shops . So it's like invest on your blog till it's a downtown typo ;)
I hope something here would have helped you . Moreover I am giving a discount on ads to celebrate and bound my sponsorship . 50% off , yes whole tight packed deal of 50% ( am I not being super generous? ) Use code " YikesPF "Don't go because it won't last long. Heck yes. #ComeAndGetItInNoorsStyle
If you have any questions , just tell me . Perhaps I could help .
So what's your PF story? Will you upgrade or not?
Today , here's Ellie with me to enjoy a cup of coffee ( quite virtually *HMMM*) . She's my fellow blogger and definitely an adorable + sweet girl . She blogs over Serendipitous Whimsicality with her best friend . Recently , she has returned from Guatemala . So let's talk with her for a little while :)
The most fun thing about blogging is connecting with other people from around the world....hi Noor! I love hearing from other bloggers and getting to "know" them through their blogs etc.
2 - One very random fact about you?
I hate all things that involve potatoes...french fries included! I know, I know, it's so weird. For some reason I've just never liked them! (Oh no Ellie , I am crying )
3- Complete the sentence : I can't wait for......
A break from school! And it hasn't even started yet...that's probably not a good sign...whoops!
