Monetizing The Next Web: Show me the Money!

Monetizing The Next Web: Show me the Money!


Oprah Winfrey once said “You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, even if you weren’t being paid for it.”

If this is true then there must be millions of bloggers on the road to success right now!

Surely we love our job and would do it even if we weren’t paid but it is still extremely satisfying to make some money of off the work we do here. To that end we have professionalized a few things in the past few weeks.

We now have an Ad Management system that works very well, gives us lots of options to customize everything and which makes it very easy for advertisers to get your advertisements on our blog.

In fact, it takes less than 2 minutes to get your 125×125 button in our sidebar!

Since yesterday we also started selling simple text links. We received some requests from readers to introduce this format and because it is a cheap and simple way to attract visitors and easier to set-up than designing a Button we decided to start offering it.

So, if you have a site which you want to promote you can now order a 30 day link to your site for just EUR 50-.

It is displayed in the right sidebar on the bottom and I put up a few examples in there to show you how it works. The first paying user is Best Web Hosting.
