Text Link Ads just came out with a new service called Feedvertising, which they dub as, “really simple RSS advertising.”
That’s true, it is very simple.
It only works for WordPress 2.0+ blogs though. Instigator Blog runs on WordPress 2.0+ so I thought I’d give it a try.
It was extremely easy to setup through a WordPress plugin.
The coolest thing about it is that you can put in your own ads.
You can run a total of 6 random ads (only 1 shows up on each post in your RSS feed), and while you can leave some to be purchased by Text Link Ads clients, you can also put in your own — for affiliate marketing options, other projects, etc.
I put in a simple “sponsor” ad for IGotNewsForYou giving away 1-year FREE subscriptions to the service (so subscribe and check out the feed for that!)
Here’s how that works (it’s simple):
The ads are short, and you can pick a specific prefix for them like Sponsor, Advertisement, or something custom. It would be cool if you could pick a different prefix for each ad that you put in there…
It’s a free service so I would go ahead and give it a try, and depending on the subject of your blog and the traffic you get, you may just generate a bit of a revenue from people buying RSS ads (hint, hint).[tags]feedvertising, rss, blogging, advertising, text link ads, text-link-ads, link ads[/tags]
