When you’re doing things like blogging about your products (or someone else’s), there’s going to be room in the sidebar area for you to put things. Some people put an opt in box there, links to their social networking profiles, or hyperlinked images to the products they sell.
But don’t forget about using the space for ad revenue, too. Blogs in particular can be high traffic entities, so publishers and product owners love the idea of placing their ads on your blog.
Most people know these are not personal endorsements by you. If anyone asks, just be honest and let them know that’s a paid ad spot. There are two methods you can use to fill the ad space in your blog – or static website – AdSense and Direct Sales.
