125×125 Sponsorship Button Available For Septemeber

I have a 125×125 sponsor button available for next month. If you wish to take advantage of it, you’ll have to reserve the spot quickly. The last time I offer an ad spot for sale, it sold within a few hours. As a matter of fact, the advertiser sent me the money before he sent me the ad.

Being a direct advertiser give you more exposure to my readership, not just from the ad but from all the various plugs I give my direct advertisers. The cost for the sponsorship button is $500 per month. If you would like to take it, then Email me your 125×125 creative to [email protected], and PayPal $500 to the same Email address. The ad button cannot be bigger than 15K in file size. Animation is allowed but no Flash.

For those who can’t spend $500 for an ad, Tim at eMontized is offering a free John Chow ad contest to give four bloggers the chance to have their own 125 x 125 banner ad on here for free. I have to admit, Tim is a very creative guy.

*Update – the spot has been sold.

      John, I want to buy an ad. let me know if the deal falls through

      1. Geedos says:

        Good luck! It’s not often these kind of deals fall through post sale.

    2. Okey now that was a quick sale 😉 Congratulations.

    3. All ad spot sold! So fast. Anyway I don’t have $500 to promote my blog 😐

  1. Jason says:

    cool, can’t afford $500, I’ll check Tim

  2. aw says:

    Actually, I am really not completely ready for your new skin.

  3. John Chow says:

    That has to be a new records in terms of when it was posted to when it was sold.

    1. O yeah. Can’t wait to find out the time on this. Now to decide what to do with it…. 😈


      1. Rhys says:

        Reading your post, I noticed that you’re thinking of flipping.

        I wonder how many times people can “flip” ads and still make a profit.

        If anybody wants to try it, banner ads sell for $30 on my blog 😛

        1. Geedos says:

          Nice plug Rhys!

          And good luck – $30 for most people reading this blog is very reasonable. 😀

          1. Rhys says:

            Zing 😉

    2. Pam Hoffman says:

      Thanks for the opportunity John!

      Now to figure out how to incorporate Tim’s lnkback in my blog…

    Sold already? Wow.

  5. Bloody hell, I’m going to have to subscribe to your RSS feed.

    1. Steven says:

      Subscribing won’t do any good. There is a delay of when the post goes live and when it actually hits the RSS feed. I am on his feed and I made it here too late. You can subscribe if you want to be an avid reader but subscribing if you’ll think it’ll help in terms of getting here first is a sad mistake. I am sure there are several other people who visit here frequently for updates. I sure hope that isn’t the reason

      1. Isn’t the feedburner RSS feed just a formatted version of the WordPress RSS which is updated in real time? If it is then it just depends on how often you set your RSS client to check for new updates.

        1. Steven says:

          There is a lag between when the post goes live and when it shows up in the RSS reader. It isn’t updated in real time.

          1. KingJacob says:

            A less than a minute lag most of the time.

          2. Geedos says:

            So is there consensus that the best way to get in on these early is by subscribing to the RSS feed or is it just a case of checking the site 24/7!

            Do some people spend their entire day just monitoring this blog?!? 😆

          3. Well subscribing to the RSS sure does help to get you informed, but Simon is right, there is a slight delay between published post on the blog and on the RSS readers. Anyway it is not even that hard to monitor John’s blog for new posts…he kinda has a scheduled time when to get posts published 😛 (thats what I believe, it just might be a coincidence as well.)

  6. Manthem says:

    Wow. I saw the RSS feed update, read the post, and it’s gone already?

  7. And my ‘post a comment on my blog’ contest is going to end soon.. so those have not posted comments please post your comments now.. view details of this contest here. And meantime I will go to Tim’s to check the opportunity.

  8. Click Input says:

    Haha, dang that went quick!

    1. Geedos says:

      Must be some kind of record.

      John – how long was it between publishing the post and selling the ad?

      1. John Chow says:

        About two minutes.

        1. Geedos says:

          Wow! That is absolutely unbelievable! What time did the post go live local time in Vancouver?

          Maybe I’m just at an unfair advantage due to the time difference here in Australia! :mrgreen:

  9. Too rich for my blood. One of these days…

    1. ashxx says:

      ya $500 can get you 50,000 visits on adsense

  10. Pranjal says:

    I’m still waiting for ur September Paycheck post. I hope this time more then 20,000 bucks 😈 😈 😈 😈

    1. should be more than that :mrgreen:

  11. Kevin says:

    Good God! 😯

    I am subscribing right away!

  12. orha007 says:

    In few month John will replace all affiliate places with direct advertisers 😀

  13. Yup, which was a completely “evil genius” move if I do say so myself!



  14. How About $1000 Per Ad?
    The market usually sets the price no matter how high or seemingly ridiculous it appears…I wonder why John Chow doesn’t jack up the price some more. Seems to be like the market could handle it and would be willing to accept it. Test the market I say…I’m curious to see what would happen 😈
    😀 😀 😀

      “The market usually sets the price”
      Price is going up, I think John is not going to risk. Big price is going with more traffic, and when big fish decide to pay more for advertiser place.

    2. Geedos says:

      Yeah I agree. I’m surprised he didn’t pitch higher.

      It was the same with the last ad spot advertised for sale in a post – it was sold like lightning for what turned out to be a very cheap price.

      I wonder where the ad pricing across this website will be in another 6 months time? 😈

  15. I think for now I’ll go for Tim’s competition

  16. SmokeRulz says:

    Feeling nice to visit here, i am also upto something.But waiting for the time! Looking forward for your new target 😛


  17. KingJacob says:

    With the 125×125 spots does the advertiser have the choice to renew each month? If so that was a very smart move Blain.

    1. Yea, advertiser can renew for the price they won it for in the auction, I still maintain possession of the slot though 😈

      1. Geedos says:


        Very smart move 😈

  18. Stephen says:

    Perhaps John should think about selling ad space on the banner of where the car is right now? I’m sure that should fetch quite a bit as well.

    1. KingJacob says:

      Or he could just use adbrite and turn the car into an ad with britepic 😉

    2. Geedos says:

      I know John likes cars but you’re right – why not just cut the car in half and free up a load more money making space?

  19. Great blog looking design. I think you will definetly increase the number of sponsorships you have.

  20. rabin says:

    hey man i have ditched u in my blog about ur e book in a respectable way. i hop u dont mind.

    1. ashxx says:

      haha why would you come tell him you “ditched” him in your blog, and that you hope he doesn’t mind? That’s like.. hey.. i spit in your cereal.. hope ya dont mind 😈

  21. Quick sale! Guess the others need to do with checking out emonetized.

  22. max says:

    Oh darn, I was GOING to buy it…

  23. I was so sure I had it in the bag 🙁
