Shout Out To Sponsors And Advertisers

I like to take this time to send a shout out to our sponsors and advertisers. They help pay the cost of running this blog so I don’t have to charge you for reading my content. OK, I wouldn’t charge you for it anyway but you get the idea. 🙂

Premium Sponsor: Search Engine Guide

Search Engine Guide covers everything you can think about when it comes to Google and other search engine. They are a daily read for me. I would love to steal Jennifer Laycock away so she can come work for me but I think Search Engine Guide would sic their puppy on me if I try. Don’t let that cute looks fool you. That puppy is a killer!

Contest Sponsor: 1234Pens.com

This month’s contest was sponsored by promotional pens maker, 1234Pens.com. They’re helping me give a way a Nintendo Wii in an evil blog contest. There’s still five more days left in the contest so if you haven’t entered yet, better get on it!

Our Text Link Advertisers

Not only do the text link advertisers help this blog to earn some nice coin, but also they help to reinforce the important of the anchor text.

I have two text links spot available if anyone is interested. The price is $200 per month from Text Link Ads. New advertisers can get a $100 credit here.

Treat Your Advertisers Like Your Readers

Dealing with advertisers is not much different than dealing with readers. Both want to be treated with respect and both should feel they got value for dealing with you. These shout outs are just one way I help deliver value to my sponsors. It’s a bit like acknowledging the Top Commentators for their contributions and it’s one more lesson in the concept of under promise and over deliver.

  1. Nice idea John.. got it from TechCrunch I bet? 😆

    1. John Chow says:

      He stole the idea from me! 👿

      1. Dave says:

        Were you out eviled John? 🙂

        1. Maybe that’s what he wants you to think…

          1. Who cares who done it first? Better late than never.

        2. Marc says:

          Even if he was, it’s only one idea out of the evilest source of ideas I’ve ever seen 😉

      2. Jonix says:

        johnchow X TechCrunch 🙂 That would be interesting

        1. HAHA Damn Michael Arrington – he’s even more evil than you!

      3. Maybe Techcrunch is more evil then? Because evil pople steal.

  2. Well it doesn’t matter where he got the idea, it is indeed a good one. John has done it before as well.

    I learn a lot trying to find my way around this thing called ‘blog’ and one thing that really amazes me is how many people there are who somehow think the ‘Net is free and that all the work that people put into things are free. The song may say “Love makes the world go ‘Round.”, but it doesn’t. Business (money) does. Let’s hear it for the ‘pro’ in pro blogger.

    I’ve clicked on all their links and purchased all their products. THey should be happy now! 😈

    1. That was nice of you to buy all of those products…

  4. 1dollar says:

    What a good idea !

  5. James says:

    You did a good job getting me to check out several of your advertisers with this post.

    1. Dave says:

      I was fandangled into checking one of them out 🙂

    2. The advertisers get great exposure this way.

      1. Dave says:

        Which in turn makes them happy and interested in continuing their campaign. Which helps John make more money. It’s win-win

        1. Very true, I doubt they had to pay for this extra ad too!

  6. Eastwood says:

    Hey John, I first read about your blog a while ago in the Vancouver Sun and found it quite inspiring.
    I justed started a blog of my own, and will hopefully one day (with the help of your blog of course) have a blog as successful as yours! 🙂

    1. Dave says:

      That article was nationally syndicated I think. Amazing publicity for John, and completely free. So evil.

  7. Jeff says:

    I’ve entered the content so hopefully I’m able to win it!

  8. Jay says:

    Spot on, advertisers are people too 🙂

  9. Marc says:

    I like the idea of treating your advertisers like readers. It’s a very different take on it than most have. It is a very symbiotic relationship though, and you do need to keep a good relationship with your advertisers.

    1. Dave says:

      This is true, in fact you should almost treat them a little better because they are what’s making you money 🙂

  10. Well, most people just treat their advertisers as just another money-making tool.. 😀 It’s good to see someone treating them so well!

  11. morganusvitus says:

    The site looks great ! Thanks for all your help ( past, present and future !)

  12. Giving credit where credit is due (sponsors and advertisers); that’s really estimable. Snaps for even acknowledging us, your readers. 😀
