Things always seem to even out. After I just posted about how I was removing AuctionAds from all of my sites, I was wondering what I was going to fill the ad space with. I was about to log into my NeverBlueAds account and grab a few banners, but then I was contacted by my good friend Jim. He told me about a brand new widget that just went live and I think I might actually do well on a few of my sites. The widget is called WidgetBucks and it’s from a company called mPire. It’s kind of like AuctionAds meets Shopzilla.
Since I already needed a spot to fill for my AuctionAds ad space, I figured I’d give it a shot. It’s pretty cool because you can pick the different type of products you want featured on your widget. I chose a couple banners targeting to mp3 players, video games and movies to spread across my sites on a few skyscraper banners.
WidgetBucks is brand spanking new and they are looking for some new bloggers and publisher sites to promote and make money with the program. To increase sign ups they are giving away some "Easy Bonus Bucks": We’re offering a $25 bonus to bloggers just for signing up. Once you earn $50 in your WidgetBucks account, BOOM!, the $25 bonus kicks in. It doesn’t get much better than that.
(Update: Affiliates will also earn 10% of all referred earnings for up to 12 months)
On top of giving a FREE $25 to all new signups, WidgetBucks pays on a per clicks basis. How much? I’m not sure, but I’m sure it varies per product. (On their main page, they boast average rates between $2-$7 CPM) The program is super new, so don’t shoot the messenger if it doesn’t perform for you… but I’ll gladly take the praise if it does. I’ll be pushing this offer with at least over 5 million impressions a month and can’t wait to see what type of earnings I see. I will definitely keep you updated with any news and my first set of earnings!
Join WidgetBucks to see all banners in action, this is just a screen shot version.
