If you’re looking for an alternative for text links on your blog or website or would like to make more than a few dollars every month on pay-per-click search ads which may not interest your audience, there is a new advertising company called Chitika which has launched its Chitika eMiniMalls especially for bloggers.
With some reported clicks of over $5, Chitika eMiniMalls sport an innovative advertising design which not only catches your readers’ attention, but also gets them involved in the advertisement itself.
Chitika eMiniMalls feature products available for sale online which are relevant to your blog’s content. The serve a picture of the product, its information, and invite the user to click on the ad for more information or to purchase. eMiniMalls are like hosting a web store right on your blog.
Instead of affiliate programs where you have to wait for the interested user to make a purchase and then get reimbursed a small percentage per sale (which may never happen), eMiniMalls pay you instantly, per click.
And one nice feature is that you can set the ads to default on specific items. So, if you know your blog audience is interested in video gaming, you can set the ads to continuously show ads for “Sony PSP”, garnering a high click amount.
For bloggers who are looking for an innovative way to make some extra revenue besides AdSense or ugly Smiley FastClick ads, the Blog Search Engine HIGHLY recommends eMiniMalls.
