I’ve had quite a few people asking me recently, why there’s no advertising on jimsmarketingblog.com. So, I thought I would let you know.
The short answer is that this blog is NOT here to sell advertising!
Some commercial blogs start off with the sole intention of selling advertising – which is great. However, the primary focus of this blog is very different!
I decided to simply build this blog as a way for me to connect / network with great people (like you); who share my interest in marketing, networking and business development. The community here is extremely important to me, which is why I work so hard to get readers ‘involved’ in the blog – with your comments, suggestions, ‘tweets’ and emails.
As you can see from the amazing number of comments this blog already attracts, (after just 11 weeks of marketing) – the community is both growing and very active!
So, what IS the “business model” then?
I want to show you the effectiveness of my work; through the marketing ideas I share with you and the obvious success of this blog itself. Then, if you decide you want to achieve massively better sales/profits or simply develop an amazingly successful blog, you might decide to give me a call or drop me an email.
Of course, as a result of the growing number of people now visiting and commenting here, companies have started asking me if I will advertise their products or services. This blog’s community is very targeted; primarily people who own a business, are self employed or are ‘decision makers’ in larger companies. Our community here is what advertisers dream about.
I will happily offer advertising on the blog, but only if it’s a product or service that I use or have researched and believe to be massively valuable to you. Nothing offered thus far fits into either category – hense no ads.
