PassionFruit Ads 2.0 !?
« on: Jul 23, 2013 @ 01:17 PM »
Hi ladies,

I haven't posted here before but have been blogging since Nov 2012 and I read here often. 

I have a question/concern.  I have enjoyed ad swaps with blogs.  Many of the mommy blogs I read have used Passionfruit ads to sell and swap ad space on their blogs.  So this is what I was using, and it was easy to use. 

Well now Passionfruit has upgraded and will start charging $9/month to use their services.  I realize we all want to make a little money.  But as a small blog not making anything $9/month is a lot of money.

Are there any other ad management services out there?  Is there another way to easily swap blog ads for free?  What do you use for ads?

Thank you!

Hi BunkinMama,

If you don't want to pay for Passionfruit, you might just have to go to emailing blogs directly. It's more personal, which is maybe better?

A good place to start would be to find blogs that currently do ad swaps. I would recommend using Google operators to do that.

In your case, try this in Google's search box:  ad swap intext:mommy

I haven't been on this forum for a while, but I came here looking to see if anyone listed any other ideas for sponsor services like passionfruit. I just signed up and got the email that they are updating- which is frustrating! So yes if anyone finds another service that is similar to passionfruit, but not charging the monthly fee, please let me know! Thanks!

You can try pages such as cashcrate.com that offer the possibility to earn some extra cash doing online surveys and other cash offers. There you can try referral program - for example for every new member you refer to cashcrate.com, you earn up to 20% of what they make, and up to 10% of what their referrals make. They offer banners to add to your website or you can use referral links. Have a look there! :-\
