The noob just lost out of two months worth of private ad sales. I’ve been a bit pre occupied with my wedding so i couldn’t tend to my blog as much as i would have liked. I still update daily, but i didn’t response to some of my emails. Had i replied to one of those emails, i would be $50 richer.
$50 isn’t a large sum of money, but in blogging dollars it’s pretty significant. It’s also important to increase my private ad sales earnings. This will help me sell more ads and increase the value of my blog. I don’t plan on selling bloggernoob dot com, but if were, the income from private ads would be most desired.
I received an email a few days ago asking for my paypal email. The sender wanted to send me payment for 2 months of private ads. Private ads are easy money. You don’t have to write a post or review an affiliate. All you have to do is place an ad on the sidebar. No work and great pay. If i just replied quickly, i know that i would have $50 more in my paypal account.
Replying to emails is a must when you maintain a website. Email is how webmasters communicate with one another. Get comfortable with it and do not be afraid to use it. Get in the habit of emailing to other bloggers. And get in the habit of quickly replying to emails you receive. This is common courtesy and it’s good for blogging income. You don’t want to miss out on any private ad sales.
Most purchases are spur of the moment. If you are trying to sell something, you have to catch the right timing. Someone who wanted to buy an ad yesterday, might not be so willing today. Reply quickly if you want to make money online.
