I'm allowing advertisers to sponsor a page on my site. It works out well because they get their link on a related content page. Their link is the only outgoing link on the page and the page gets great link popularity since I link to it from every page of my site.
So for example on the footer of every page of my site is a link to http://eslgo.com/classes/advanced/hot-tub-health.html and on that page is a link to my sponsor.
Wasauna.com sells products to homeowners looking to upgrade their homes. Products include Wasauna's luxurious shower, home spa and bath products. They specailize in infrared saunas and steam showers. If you take a moment to look at the products you might be marketing, they are luxury items that most of us would love to have.
I mention them here because they have a very interesting affiliate program. Interesting because the payout is $100.00 US. If you can build a page that convices people they need a luxurious shower and then offer a link to Wasauna.com, you have a chance to earn a nice passive income.
Casale Media offers branding campaigns and pays publishers on a CPM basis. I understand that the payout is reasonable so I applied to become a publisher and carry their ads. My site was denied because "the area of our network that your site caters to is currently full in terms of available campaigns."
I've never heard that one before. Sounds like saying we don't have enough advertisers to place ads on your site...
