NevBlog Advertising

Thanks for your interest in advertising on NevBlog.com.
This blog is about my personal financial journey starting from the age of 22 in November 2004. Since then, this blog has been linked and written about in a variety of blogs, websites and major publications such as:

  • Business Week
  • The Wallstreet Journal
  • Yahoo Finance
  • Vedemosti (The Russian Wallstreet Journal)

The blog is about the financial learnings and happenings in the life of me, Neville Medhora. I graduated from University of Texas and have currently never had a real job thanks to starting several small businesses. Since high school I’ve started online web businesses which have grown to be my full time profession. This website is mainly about personal finances, small business experiments, money and lifestyle improvement.  Take a look around the site and see if your advertisement would benefit from being on NevBlog.com.

NevBlog gets between 2,000 and 4,000 unique visitors per day, and occasional spikes of traffic from large websites like Digg where traffic can go upwards of 30,000 unique visits in a day, and has hundreds of quality backlinks across many search engines.

GOT OTHER IDEAS?

Think you’ve got a unique way of advertising on NevBlog? Run it past me, I’m always down to hear innovative ways to advertise! Perhaps you want to take up several spots of advertising and link them together to be unique, I can work with you on these ideas. There have been some pretty unique and successful campaigns on NevBlog in the past:

THE PIXEL SALE EXPERIMENT:
Checkout the original post.

This involved putting a small grid on the right-hand navigation where advertisers paid $50 for a tiny little square. This involved no text links and just a miniscule little square, but it surprisingly raised a lot of money in a short period of time for such a new site at the time, and got a lot of attention.

INTEREST.COM ADVERTISING BUYOUT:
Checkout the original post.

Interest.com who is owned by BankRate.com (The large company that does loans for Ditech.com and other big lenders) bought out all the advertising space on NevBlog for a 10 month period. I was also featured in their new “Blogs of Interest” section of their webpage. The deal bought them 4 ads total for all different parts of the site: Header, footer, left navigation and right navigation.

    You would need to start posting on this blog more frequently for me to be paying for advertising here! There was a month between posts july-august and then when you posted they where purely adverts for your own interest…

    Nev, if you want to monetize the blog, how about you come up with some blog topics….and since its called a “financial blog,” maybe a topic on finances. Oh, wait, a great topic would be how you invented an income-generating change jar.

    While you are at it, why don’t you link to your post talking about how you would never sell ads on your blog.

    Thought that would interest you, maybe get more readers to your blog talking about finance in more than one place

    Alright Nev, you’ve got two takers on your ad “experiment”! Good stuff.

    So what do you think has been the biggest thing that has drawn visitors to your site over the years?
