Easy Extra Cash

I just received an email from a friend who owns two blogs. She writes only when she feels like it - and yet she told me that gets paid for each blog just for putting a nice little banner ad on it somewhere. I thought this might be a great way to add some income to my writing business.

The company is called Matched.

You might think £3 isn't much - but it's around $5.50 US or about $5.90 AU - every month. For doing nothing but putting an ad up on your site.

Matched will allow you to submit up to 5 URL's from the same domain - so that's potentially £15 per month from one website you could be earning for doing not much at all!

Imagine adding 5 URL's from 5 different blogs? That's Easy money!

(want me to do the math for you? 5 pages from 5 blogs at £3 (UK) per month = £75 ...

... or around $150 US a month.

My friend pointed out that the ads aren't intrusive or invasive so it's really a good way to monetize a blog with low visitor numbers.

Of course I signed up at once. ;)

I got a £5 sign-up bonus and as soon as I finish writing this post, I'm going to put the new advertising banner up on this blog.

If you want to give Matched a go, click here and best of luck earning more money from your website!

Let me know how you get on.

I signed up with Matched quite early on, and for several months it was great - but then they declined all but one of my sites with very little explanation.

Oh dear! You have me worried now.

I have three of my sites on there, with several pages each. It's quite a handy amount of extra money each month into my business.

Let's hope they keep paying me a while longer before they cut off my sites with no explanation...

Thanks for the heads-up
