My Mediavine Review and why I run ads, my honest opinion of an outstanding Ad Management Team, Mediavine, The Publisher Network.
I started out blogging almost three years ago thanks to the constant nagging from a friend. Actually she encouraged me to write a book, but I thought a blog would be easier. Famous last words.
Fast forward to just over a year ago, and my blog had grown into something I was immensely proud of and so passionate about and I still am.
I did have ads on my site at that point but I wasn’t making much, and to tell the truth with all the work that goes into building and keeping up a food blog from Recipe making to hosting to on line courses (yes one day I will do a cake decorating course) it was needless to say disappointing.
That is until I heard about the Mediavine Publisher Network. They were the perfect answer. Not only did I not have to worry about where to place the ad codes, header, footer, or whatever, it was all greek to me. They did it all.
They are always upfront about everything. What their new plans for advertising are, what google says we should or should not do. If you have a question about anything they get back to you almost immediately.
There is also an awesome facebook group just for all of us publishers. It’s a great way to share questions or even find a solution or two.
The only thing they ask is that you have to have at least 25,000 sessions a month. Once you are accepted you will be invited to the facebook group, you will be able to sign in to your own personal dashboard that shows everything from everyday earning and pageviews to how ads are performing.
And one of the things I love are the amazing help guides they have and don’t forget how easy it is to upload your videos to your blog now with the mediavine dashboard.
And if that isn’t enough, they are now giving us a Loyalty Bonus, and I don’t know of another Ad Agency that does this. How does it work? Well for every year that you are with Mediavine, you get a percentage of your earnings back. I got my first after my first anniversary, and I can tell you I am looking forward to my second.
So exactly what does putting your ad content in Mediavine’s hands mean? What they do basically is run an auction for each placement and the highest bidder wins, which means I definitely win too. And what a relief of not having to worry about that stuff.
What else do you need to know well for example you can’t run any other ads on your site, but this was of no concern to me, so no problem.
And they have what is called Net75 payments, which means once your ads are up and running 75 days later you will receive your first pay cheque. Why? Because they wait to have the money in house for publishers before paying you. After that you will be paid on the 15th of every month, believe me I never ever waited to be paid.
So if you are considering working with Mediavine, I have to say in my opinion it will be the best thing you could do for yourself and your website.
