Your website, one of these days, is going to need ads if it doesn’t have them already. Advertisements are a great way for you to get money and for the products you’re advertising to get some extra cash too. It’s basically a win-win situation.
The only negative thing is that if your site has ads that are unrelated, which may be avoidable due to a lot of ads being based on your traffic’s Internet history and use, may cause a bit of frustration. If you run a gaming blog then you should obviously get ads from companies that matter to someone who games.
Talk To Gaming Forums
The most obvious ad space demographic to target is, of course, other gaming websites. While you are in a sort of competition with each other, ad space is more like being affiliated. If a website asks for ads on your site, make sure that this is a mutual transaction.
Don’t forget to hit up gaming forums. Most gaming forums are pretty cheap to run and like to have some extra cash on hand. You can talk about a mutual exchange of funds or affiliation to advertise on each other’s platforms. Forums are also a great place to advertise because of the constant personal traffic and discussion based interactions.
Technology Based Ads Are A Plus
The next biggest ad sell is going to be technology. Make sure that these focus on both console and computer gaming accessories. There are many big name companies that can show up if you get Google AdSense and let that do the work for you but it’s also good to directly talk to the smaller, more homegrown places that you can use to advertise with and vice versa.
Technology advertisements can also be tech based. If you’re blogging about a computer game, squeeze in a mention of a great gaming mouse you’ve found and where to get it. Things like this can be seamlessly integrated with practice.
This might seem a bit stereotypical, but most gamers like to have some food on hand if they’re about to get into a big gaming session. This is where an automated ad turn out can do the work for you since more food manufacturers are above your means as a blog just starting out but this is still a viable option when it comes to different types of ads to use.
Desks, Chairs, And Other Gaming Environment Equipment
This category covers the miscellaneous things that gamers may not think they need or that matter but they actually do. Gloves to keep your controller from getting sweaty, soft and comfortable office chairs, as well as ergonomic chairs for console gaming are all things that you can get at unrelated stores when it comes to gaming but they’re all things that do matter and can enhance a gaming experience. The downside is that if you get a furniture place in your ads it probably will be more general than geared toward gaming accessories, but at least the gears are now turning.
