Jason from Successforyourblog is right. Blog ads, and ads in general these days, are boring.
I find most blog are doing the exact same thing and its kinda boring if you ask me. The typical ad layout is a 468 x 60 banner up at the top of the page. Then the 125 x 125 button farm on the right hand side just above the fold.
I find this topic intriguing because blog monetization is one of my specialties. He’s right. Something needs to change.
The question is though… What can be done to innovate in this space? I believe that my ScratchBack system is unique and fun and innovative, but I’m biased. But besides that, something needs to happen in this space.
125×125 ads are great, but how long before those ads get “banner blindness” like everything else? What can us marketers do to solve this problem? Hopefully I’ll figure it out before someone like Jason does. :)
Do you like to try and innovate like I do? It starts with a problem. Now you try and solve it in a unique way. That’s innovation.
What problems exist that you can solve, in any niche? That’s how you should be thinking.
Once you get the problem solved, you then have to do it. Do you innovate?
