John Chow Dot Com Banner Ad Raffle

Posted on August 23, 2007 by Tim Schroeder

A humble welcome to all my new John Chow Dot Com Readers.

John Chow was kind enough to drop me an email before his latest theme was released and he gave me the opportunity to purchase a new banner ad spot. Without to much thought I took up his offer and if you are a long time John Chow reader you realize why.

These six 125 x 125 banner ad spots sold out even before the new theme was released. In fact they oversold so he added eight ad spots.

In the last couple days I’ve been thinking how to best utilize this ad space and I have brainstormed a few fairly creative ideas (I’ll be testing a few different ideas). One thing that came to my mind is how most average affiliates unfortunately can’t afford to spend $500 a month for a banner ad on John Chow.

>> UPDATE: I’m going to have to make some changes to this original contest as I didn’t realize that “raffles” are technically only allowed for charitable, nonprofit organizations. Info on some possible new John Chow Ad contests are here.

    What happens if you don’t get 20 entries are you still gonna give the spots away?

    If you can’t do raffle, you can always sell it for a buck or two for selected person. Just an idea 🙂 Anyway, too late now gotta go…:)

    $500 a month is not affordable for a small blog. This is a good idea.

    Interesting idea to subdivide your ad. With so many ads on his new theme though, will people really pay for 1/4 of a 125×125?

    Very tempting. Waiting on the details.
