You want to get rich with your blog? Maybe you think Adsense will let you retire? Sorry, it's not going to happen.

Doing a Little Offline Advertising

I’m going to be putting up 20-30 of these around campus today, so expect a picture-heavy post in the near future.  These flyers will serve two purposes:

  1. Get the word out about my new, Purdue-themed free blog hosting service.  You may be wondering why I created a free blog hosting service.  Well, each blog will have access to 15 or so themes (so far), and each one of those themes has a few Adsense blocks on it.  Adsense blocks with my publisher ID.  There are 36,000 students on this campus, and if even 0.5% of them sign up, I’ll have a lot of free content being created.  See where I’m going with this?
  2. Encourage people to sign up for that Vista Print business card offer, which incidentally pays me $12 per lead.

I’ll be placing them primarily in the Engineering and Management buildings.  If that works out, I’ll place some in other areas around campus as well.  We’ll see how this works out.

    You could tell your college newspaper as well that there is a free blog hosting service tailored to Purdue students and alumni. This has the potential to get pretty popular around campus.

    College paper, local paper - and perhaps the alumni publication as well. And often there’s those free monthly papers in college towns.
