Welcome Some New Sponsors

I like to take this time to welcome a couple of new sponsors, who also happen to be fellow bloggers. This just goes to show that if you want to grow your blog, sometimes you need to spend a bit of money.

Mitch Harper’s Interspire SendStudio

Mitch Harper is a man who wears many hats. He has his own blog at HarpzOn.com that gives advice on driving more web traffic and he is a guest blogger on this blog as well. Mitch’s main moneymaker, however, is his software company, Interspire.

Interspire SendStudio is the best newsletter software I have ever used. Mitch like that quote so much he is using it on the banner that’s running at the bottom of each posts. If you’re looking for a great piece of software to send out newsletters, SendStudio is the one to get. Read my full review of the product here.

Jeremy Miller’s Jemmille.com

A big thank you goes out to Jeremy Miller for purchasing a text link on this blog through Text link Ads. I’m sure Jeremy took advantage of the $100 TLA coupon. I guess Jeremy looked at the effort it would take to get and maintain a Top Commentators position and concluded that paying $200 for a link would be easier.

Jeremy’s blog is getting well known for his 5 Questions With section. This where Jeremy asks five questions with famous bloggers. So far Aaron Wall, Shoemoney, Steve Rubel and yours truly have taken part. Check out my answers to the the five questions.

    Thanks for the link to the older post about the newsletter review. I missed that post originally.

  2. Derrich says:

    Big fan of Jeremy’s site. I caught it on MyBlogLog when he came by Derrich.com for a visit. He has one of those “unique” avatars. :mrgreen:

    1. Marc says:

      Jeremy’s site is pretty cool. I really like the 5 questions section. I hope the sponsored link pays off for both 🙂

  3. it does take quite a bit of effort to reach the top commentators list. 👿

    1. Matthew says:

      I dont bother with trying. It makes me feel like a spammer when trying.

      1. Derrich says:

        I agree. Although I’m on it, I’ve lagged from the middle of the list to the bottom. Every now and then, I pop back on the list…dead last.

    2. Matt Jones says:

      Indeed it does, I tend to be on and off the list… I don’t know what I would do If PR updated during a brief moment I slipped off it!

      1. Thor Schrock says:

        Shoemoney does the top 15 and that seems to make enough room for the supper commentators as well as some of the most loyal casual readers

    3. Thor Schrock says:

      I have been commenting (without spamming) for over a week now, but it seems that others just comment more and more as the top 10 get so competitive. The list keeps me coming back, and I am sure it does for others too.

    4. uncle sha says:

      If you love john chow blog, you’ve plenty to comment

  4. Alex says:

    That interview at Jemmille.com was one of the best I ever read 😉

    1. Jeremy says:

      You are making me blush Alex. Thanks!

      1. Derrich says:

        It is pretty frikken good. 😎

  5. Matt Jones says:

    Hey John… heres an idea… how about you extend the top commentators list to includea few more people? (give somthing back and al that 😉 )

    1. Matthew says:

      I say drop it completly 😉

      1. Gath says:

        It would be interesting to see what happened to the comments then.

  6. Thor Schrock says:

    I can’t imagine how much this must have cost them, but IMHO it is money well spent!

  7. Charities…John, I’m sure I’m not alone when I say this, but that’s just so noble of you. I don’t remember reading about your humanitarian causes on your site. That was so nice of Jeremy to highlight that part in his post.

    1. uncle sha says:

      John did mentioned that over here before 😀 .. so john is not ‘evil’ after all :mrgreen:

  8. This is a prying question. Do you have any kind of statistics as to how much traffic you generate for your sponsors? Review Me is $300 and how is that cost justified? Is there a range of how many uniques can be expected from it?

    1. Jeremy says:

      Enough to justify the cost. I promise.

      1. uncle sha says:

        me too? … 😯

    2. Yep enough to justify. I’ve paid to be on John’s blog and Jeremy’s so I can speak from experience 🙂

      1. Jeremy says:

        You did? I wasn’t aware. If anyone would like to start paying to be on my site, I’m happy to take offers 🙂

    3. Gath says:

      A number of people who have paid for reviews have posted with their experiences.

      Even the guy that got caned (http://www.ipojourney.com/) thought it was well spent.

  9. Amanda says:

    Eh I like the Harpzon one a lot.

  10. Thomas says:

    There is always something to comment about on John’s site, it is basically and open discussion among peers.

    1. True, true…some may agree while some may not, but at least you know people are reading your posts. I’d like to think that John may have picked up a few things from feedback as well.

  11. simon says:

    Hi John
    I found a link mistake on your article. The text “$100 TLA coupon” suppose link to http://www.johnchow.com/go/get_feature.php
    but it doesn’t!! Fix it soon, otherwise you will not get any affiliate. :mrgreen:

  12. blabWire says:

    As far as the top 10 comments thing goes, I think the more important factor than being shown on the page is the quality of your actual comments. I think more people click your name after reading a quality comment than just click the top comments thing in the sidebar.


    1. You said it — quality over quantity…otherwise you’re just wasting people’s time (not to mention valuable comments space).

  13. Miriguy says:

    Interspire SendStudio… Heard it before. I never thought and knew that Mitch actually is the owner.. kewl.

  14. Simonne says:

    I did not visit them yet, but now, maybe I’ll stop by.

  15. Tamara says:

    Hey I just wanted to say wow – I didn’t realize you did a lot of charity donations! (I read that in your interview!) Kudos to you – especially giving to the children charities.
