You’ll Die Waiting for $$ from Kontera

I’m taking the weekend off. Today’s guest post is from Sabrina of Mouthygirl.com.

My beef with Kontera is not the program itself, the idea is a good one. But hello?!? Can we try some products that people are interested in??? Or maybe some pop up ads that aren’t ugly as hell? Maybe make it a little less cumbersome for the publisher?? There is so much code editing that you have to in order to control the ads, it’s simply not worth it.

I don’t want to write programs if I did, I wouldn’t be a blogger. Kontera should call up Commission Junction and take their programmers out to lunch to learn a little inside knowledge about making things easy for the publisher. Easy publisher use = massive publisher use, DUH!

So the point is boys and girls, JohnChow sings Kontera’s praises because he already makes a mint just by telling people about it and getting them to sign, his money is in the referrals. Meanwhile the little blogs like MouthyGirl.com can’t make a cent because the Kontera context ads suck.

You Can’t Get anywhere in the network of Rich using Kontera. Don’t waste your time. JC makes his money and you get excited over something that will never make you anything. You might as well buy some Jones Soda and join Geoff in the festivities of promoting something you enjoy knowing you won’t make a dime.

Geoff note:

I completely agree with this. Kontera’s popup system gets in the way and is just plain ugly. I find myself staying away from blogs with those obnoxious double lines under their keywords. Thanks to Sabrina for this post.

    Kontera suck, unrelated, look like shit and not much else going for them.

    I believe Chow gets paid a base of $1,000/month no matter what which is why he keeps them.

  2. Matt Says:

    Kontera pays less than Adbrite for in line text ads.

    You may want check adbrite out.

    Kontera clicks ad up. The key to making money online is a little bit of money from each contextual ad revenue source. Adbrite does pay better. A person needs either adbrite or kontera to help maximize profits.

  4. Will Says:

    Adbrite’s ads seem a little bit bigger and more distracting than Kontera. Has anyone fooled with Vibrant media?
