Where to find Advertisers who are ready to spend on your blog!

One of the worries most of my readers have is being able to find advertisers who will pay them real money for a sponsored blog post or to place a banner on their blogs.

While this is not easy, there are places online to locate these advertisers with money in their pocket, looking for where to spend.

A few years back, I shared this guest post on aha-now, detailing some methods to help you find advertisers for your blog. The methods I discussed are still very fresh, producing desired results so you can go check out that post.

Today, I’m going to discuss a method/platform that some of us use with a huge dose of success. As a matter of fact, you might have come across this platform before without knowing it can serve you the other way round.

This platform is practically the home of thousands of advertisers. It’s one of the places where you find businesses that have money in their pocket and are ready to pay you for some exposure on your blog.

Before we get to this platform, let me touch on a few things that can make it easy for advertisers to buy space on your blog.

a) Blog Engagement !

This is an important point and you can’t avoid it. When advertisers find out that your blog is a home for many targeted readers, they will be drawn closer to giving you their money.

Comments, Facebook likes, Shares, Twitter Tweets, Google Pluses, etc are all pointers to how engaged your blog is. These actually tell whosoever comes to your blog that there is some activity going on here.

Think of it…

How do you feel if you open a blog and notice 0 comments, 0 likes, 0 tweets, 0 followers, 0 shares, 0 and 0 and 0? That makes it look like a ghost town right? It looks completely dead. If you were an advertiser, will you buy space on such a blog?

If you are the owner of such a timid blog, you will need a bunch of other factors to convince me that your blog has the required amount of traffic. These social proof factors are elements that quickly announce the value of your blog so you must not neglect them.

It’s very possible to fake these figures. Oh Yes!

With a few bucks, you can buy thousands of fake likes, followers, shares and pluses on fiverr, seoclerks, etc. But mark my words, this simply goes further to nail you.

Once advertisers realized they wasted both time and money on your blog, they are never going to come back and give you more money.

Did you read this post? I shared with you how I made additional $1060. This is from advertisers who were satisfied with the first investment they did on my blog. So my social proof is not faked. You get real results by advertising on my blog. That’s the point I’m making here.

b) Your Theme!

Listen, people don’t have time to waste on horribly looking blogs. If you are in a very competitive niche, you must be able to stand up to the current level of professionalism. Premium and very attractive themes have become so cheap. If you are not blogging for monkeys, you should try as much as possible to  get the  right materials for your blog. If it has to be a business tool, then treat it as one.

Note however that beautifully looking theme does not guarantee money. It only gives your prospects a welcoming environment to further discover your inner worth. Poor designs can however quickly chase interested buyers away.

I don’t want to dwell so much on these factors which you can already find here. Let’s dive straight to the platform and start seeing how to locate these advertisers clicking around with money in their wallets.

Finds Buying Advertisers on BSA!

BuySellAds is a hot online advertising marketplace with thousands of advertisers ready to just click and give you the money. What’s interesting here is the fact that most of those clients you can get to through this platform already have money to spend.  So with the right data (stats from your blog), you can easily get them on your side.

advertisers

It’s pretty easy to locate advertisers on this platform.

You simply go to the Marketplace and search for properties or sites in your niche. You can simply click on the category to show a list of sites in your niche that are accepting banners.

This is where the journey begins …

Locate websites in your niche. Visit the sites and find out if they have banners on them.

Next, take your mouse cursor across any of the banners. Look at the link that shows just above your taskbar (bottom of screen). If these links point to buysellads.com, that tells you, effectively, the advertisers are coming from the platform.

Click the banner, go to the advertiser’s site and hit the contact form.

They are already buying space on blogs in your niche. This means you have a greater chance to get them over to your blog.

Please Note!

BuySellAds is a platform with quite popular sites. Some of the sites listed there have millions of monthly impressions. The temptation is for you to go checking out advertisers on such sites.

That will be wrong if your blog cannot measure those extremely popular blogs. For the most part, advertisers who look for such exposure will not even look at your blog.

The ideal situation is to look for sites that are as popular (or abit more or less)  as yours.If those sites gets business from BuySellAds, you too can.

A trick that works!

Most of these advertisers have paid to place banners on other sites but you can make an offer that will be difficult to turn down.

While they are paying for banners on other blogs, in your own package, let the banner be a free bonus on your blog. Rather propose to do a review on your blog.

The review has more advantages than the banners;

  • Banners don’t pull traffic from SEO but review posts do.
  • Once the banner period expires, traffic stops instantly but reviews keep generating traffic for as long as possible.
  • Etc

How much to price?

BuySellAds can already help you know how much those advertisers are spending on banners. This will be a strong foundation for you to set your own prices.

Time to go to work!

Now you know where to go meet advertisers that have the money to spend on your blog. It’s time to put this method to test.

Just go to BuySellAds today. Search for properties in your niche and contact the advertisers you find there. If you contact 10, I’m very sure (from experience) 3 – 5 will be positive.

Let me know what you think about this method. It’s absolutely free to try

  9. After reading this article I am going to give a shot for BSA which will make good revenue. Thanks for this wonderful article.

    • Hi Juliana,
      It’s tough to get approved on Adsense this days and like you said, you can just move on with direct advertising 😉

      Good to have you here and do have a wonderful Christmas week 😉

  10. Hi Estine,
    Thanks for sharing another great post. You have given detailed info to find direct advertisers through bsa. Going to try it:)

  11. Hi Enstine,
    Cool share. This is really a great way to get advertisers. And I too agree with Ryan that engagement is important to get good advertisement opportunities. You have well engaged audience here.
    Thanks for sharing this tip with us 🙂

  12. Engagement is really, rally big Enstine, when you’re talking about trying to attract folks who wish to advertise on your blog. Think about some of the best sites in the world. These blogs and sites command top advertising dollars because they are huge,monster communities whose members engage. If members engage, they click on ads. Advertisers are not fools LOL!

    Yep, they know that engaged readers and commenters click on ads, which helps all parties get paid. That’s the simple truth. That’s why you want to increase comments on your blog through as many strategies as possible. I just posted a top commentors widget on my blog to boost engagement on Blogging from Paradise. I felt, looking at that awesome dude Enstine, that the commenting games that he plays and incentives that he puts out there are a huge driver because the raving, roaring community he has here 😉

    Seriously brother, you’re really a superstar blogger who knows how to build a thriving, chatty community, and because of that, advertisers know that us guys will click ads, which makes your blog an in demand spot for commenting.

    I’ve noticed my sponsored post opportunities rise and also, affiliate opps, going up there, higher and higher, as my community grows on BFP. I’ve copied folks like yourself, and Adrienne Smith, bloggers who are masters of engaging, and of building a thriving, supportive, chatty community, because so many prospering opps flows out of communities….and it’s just plain fun to hang with friends every day, right?

    Thanks Enstine, I really dig the advice here.

    Have a fun week!

    Ryan

    • That’s really impressive Ryan!
      You’ve worked your way through by leaving impressive comments and sharing posts of your readers. It’s a lot of value you give out so you should be rewarded.

      There is no doubt if you are getting more business these days. You surely have what these advertisers want so you can’t escape their radar.

      Keep that up bor. Of course, you know there are better days ahead 😉

  13. Engagement of readers is one of the most important point and by which we can get real advertisers that can pay real money. I saw one case in which traffic was low but engagement of visitors was good and that’s why that blog got advertisers.
    Buysellads.com is very strict and to apply for that, any site must have minimum 30,000 impressions monthly and to get approval on buysellads.com is not so easy as we think….
    Thank you enstine sir to provide us a tips to get advertisers….

    • That’s correct what you said Adarsh
      Engagement is a key factor

      It’s not also easy to be approved on BSA. However, you don’t need approval in this method to steal their advertisers 😉

  14. Hi Enstine,
    You’ve shared one of those your superb articles with titles that won’t let a person miss them.

    I never knew BuySellAds possessed such feature, I guess you’ve been utilizing BSA. Every blogger needs advertisers and we will all fix our heads to where works. I guess you’ve shown us a place that works, and I’ll be giving it a trial.

    I read your previous article, and trust me, I gave it a trial, still waiting for a positive response though 😛

    You’ve done noble by sharing this with us.
    Do enjoy yourself 😀

    • Wow! That just encourages me to keep sharing. I love when readers take action. That’s how results come bro and I can say with surety that you will make it.

      I have another advertiser just contact me yesterday to do another review. This just keeps going good 😉

      I used a method and generated $200 straight to paypal. It’s crazy how this happened so I have decided to detail it in my next post. Wait for it again 😉

      Thanks for the engagement bro

  15. Hi Enstine,

    This is another blockbuster that everybody wants to see and read! 🙂

    Every blogger wants advertisers to give them money. Your post on my blog earlier this year was a hit and thanks for mentioning it here.

    You are right that the level of engagement on the blog is eye-catching for the advertisers also. I must admit that I get many advertising offers without having to search for them, but of course, I accept only those go along the rules and ethos of my blog.

    You make an important point of satisfying your advertisers. Having return advertisers is a very good sign. Regarding BuySellAds(BSA), I need to add in that they do not accept just any blog or site. They have strict eligibility criteria.

    Thanks for this post and the interview on my blog. Have a nice week ahead 🙂

    • Hey Harleena,
      Just got another mail from one of my past clients asking me to do another review of their upgraded app for same price. What I’m trying to point out here is when they get satisfied, they will come back 😉

      I’m sure BSA will not reject your blog. That should be the kind of sites they want. Just give it a try. They can help you generate some income to take care of some bills.

      Thanks for the engagement on this post dear friend. Hope you are having a great week preparing for Christmas 😉

  16. Hi Muki,

    This is indeed an expert tips and it’s a must tried one! Kudos for revealing the unknown bro

  17. Hi Enstine, believe it or not, but over the years I had complied a list of (till now) 801 traffic sources7advertising networks etc. And BuySellads wasn’t among them. (As I have my EXCEL list conditionally formatted to show me duplicates if I add to it.) So thanks.

  18. Hi Enstine,
    Thank for opening such success doors as i will call it. Each time I stumble upon your post, I grab something new. I don’t know if you have a database fill with success ideas but what I do know is that I’ll follow your approach step by step.
    Thanks once more and do have a blessed week end

  19. Hi Enstine

    This is more than simply a tip. I would say it is your business secret which you graciously shared with your blog community just to benefit them as much as you can.

    This is an era of special offers. People love to get maximum benefit from each deal. So directly approaching a likely advertiser is a great idea to convince him issue an ad for one’s blog.

    It is equally important to write a very impressive sales letter to get the desired results. You pointed your another post to do this job and I think this post is a complete tutorial on “how to must get banner ads for your blog”.

    Thanks a lot for sharing.

    • Hi Mi,
      I love the proposed title “how to must get banner ads for your blog” 😉 isn’t that beautiful?
      Thanks for the comment and beautiful words. I think the secret to a great following is ‘holding nothing back’. If you show people your secret, they will become your followers.

      You of course are doing a great job on your blog. We, your readers know it and that’s why we are often on it.

      Keep it up bro and thanks for making it another date here

  20. This is a very good eye opener. Reading this has given that missing impetus in my desire and efforts of getting those Advertiser to come over to my blog. Now thinking towards offering REVIEW to many of them now.
    2015 must be a bigger BLOGGING year of CHANGE….

    • Hey Lawrence,
      This will certainly get some results for you. All you need to do this moment is give it a try. Contact a few advertisers and hear their replies.

      Thanks for your comment bro

  21. Thanks Enstine for this one. From all indications it looks like without proper engagement on the site, this strategy won’t work out.
    I’ll tackle that first.
    Have a great day!
    ‘Uju

    • Hi Uju,
      How are you dear?
      You know the best way to quickly tell visitors you have traffic is engagement. They can quickly look round your blog and know exactly where to fit it.

      It will be good thing to work on the engagement on your blog. Did you grab Adrienne’s product?

  22. Hey Enstine,

    Yeah This is gold you have just revealed! Thanks for the quick heads up bro.

    Will check BSA out soon enough.

    Thanks for sharing… Enjoy the new week.

  23. wow Estine you are the main man i have ever meet online i love the honesty of your write ups keep the good work up one love bro.entertainments news

  24. Hello Mr. Enstine !,

    that is a very nice trick you elaborated earlier, if I was an advertiser myself I wouldn’t have turned it down anyway…

    But with this Ad market platform (BuysellAds), do they have any requirements. for new prospects wanting to register with them ….. *** speaking in general !

    Best regards,
    DOK Simon….

  25. Hi Enstine Sir,

    This is very nice and unique article, and very useful for all bloggers to get direct advertise and generate more revenue from blogging.

    Thank you so much for sharing such a Money Making article….. 🙂

    Regards,
    Mahadev

  26. Nice tips. These days getting direct ads became more tough. The main reason is is that people are going ad-blind day-by-day. There was a time when people used to click ads blindly and the advertisers were happy with the CTR.

    • Hey Tanmay,
      You raised an important point here. Ad blindness is a serious issue but I think sponsored posts can settle that 😉

      Are you accepting direct ads on your blog too ?

  27. Thank you Enstine for sharing step by step how to get advertisers to pay for ads on our blogs. That is not an avenue I have tried directly. I do remember seeing that post over at Harleena’s blog too. I also purchased Adrienne’s course but have to get started. It’s a busy time of year here in December. I must start writing my list and keeping this post near the top of it as well. Thanks again Enstine! $1000/mo is not something to sneeze at!

    • Hey Lisa,
      December is busy for many and I can understand what you are going through 😉
      However, when you get back, do try advertising on your blog. That surely will help generate some income.

      Thanks for engaging Lisa. Hope you are having a great week

  28. Have known direct advert long time ago, but don’t still believe is still works wonder for bloggers in recent days.
    Thanks Enstine Muki for the post.

  29. Thanx for sharing this awsume way to get advertisers for our blog. All the articles including this one have been and will always be very useful for the reader.

    You are doing a great job bu writing these articles and helping people.

    Your site broaded is also helping a lot of bloggers to get free traffic.

    Jassica

  31. Amazing article yet another time as everyone expects from you. This article is amazing as now one doesn’t need for BSA’s approval. One can directly contact the advertiser and you don’t even need to pay any commission to the mediator.

    I’ll surely follow the tips Enstine. Article worth reading as always.

  32. Wow..Awesome and nice piece of information from you..I am gonna try it out now and let you know my results after trying..

    Thank’s for the awesome share and wonderful piece of work..

  33. it is a nice tactic to get advertisers thanks for it will be waiitng for more tactics like this in near 2015

  34. Hi Sir,
    I am strugguling to get some direct advertiser as it is one of the best source of boosting the earnings.
    The methods that you have shared here is a best way of getting direct advertiser for our blog.

    The idea of doing Review for the product is also an awesome wau to give the advertiser a value.

    Thanks sir for sharing such an informative article 🙂

  35. Hi Enstine Sir,
    Direct advertising is one of the most important side of income for every blog. Thus, every blogger tries to get some direct advertiser.

    This is an effective way of getting direct advertiser to the blog. I also liked the idea of doing a product review, as it helps in earning the trust from the advertiser which helps to keep the add for a long time.

    Regard
    Rabin

    • Hey Rabin,
      Thanks for reading and taking the time to drop a comment
      I do some real earnings from sponsored reviews so I can highly recommend it

      Do have a wonderful week 😉

  36. This is really very nice post!! i really enjoyed reading this post 🙂 very informative and enstie muki i love all your articles. Thanks a lot for posting 🙂

  37. Hello Enstine Sir,

    This is a great idea to find interested advertisers who are looking to advertise in our niche.

    I follow the same strategy to find advertisers but it’s very hard to me to keep advertisers investing in my blog for long period.

    I got the reason and that is readers’ engagement. I have started working to build my own blog community and hopefully it will generate more revenue for me.

    Thanks for your helpful post.

    Regards,
    – Ankit

    • Hi Ankit,
      Nice to see you here . Usually I visit your blog bloggertipstricks and it’s really nice. Buysellads is quite popular website and I think great place to find advertiser. If you have a blog with huge traffic buysellads is great place to start.

      Thanks for sharing this article Muki.

      Have a great day !!!

  38. That is my BOSS,i love this post, with this i am sure of making some good bucks from Jan 2015. Thank you so much BOSS!!

  39. I see this post as an eye opener, i must confess that this post is of great help to me and many bloggers out there who desire to make some good money from their blogs, thanks Enstine for the research you did to birth this.

  40. I find this article very appealing. There are many ways open there still I will have to admit that you can’t do anything unless you have a decent amount of traffic!

    • Hey bro,
      The problem will arise if you don’t contact advertisers on sites that have almost the same level of traffic as yours. However, if you have some traffic, you can always have some positive results 😉

  41. Hi Einstein,
    I do agree with you Buy sell ads is one of the best place to find advertisers. But one should keep in mind that they can’t accept blog which have low traffic. They only accepts the blogs that have unlimited traffic and have page rank as well. Only the blogs that are viral and have large group of followers that are email, or social media followers.
    By the way your post is right on target.
    Thanks for sharing,
    -Mustafa

    • That’s correct Mostafa. I recommend not going in for blogs that are extremely popular. My advice is to look for sites that are just as popular as yours. that way, you have more chances to get results

      Thanks for your feedback bro

    • Yes, itsa very good and informative post.
      Enstine really explained everything well although I don’t have enough traffic yet for advertisers but am still working on fixing that as soon as possible.
      Thanks for sharing this
