Do you use Adsense on your blog? Perhaps you haven’t been approved, or have had your account disabled at some point for mystery reasons. Or maybe you are just looking for an alternative that will show adverts that are more targeted to your readers interests.
They are a simplified (and better?) system of advertising which specialises in the DIY and Crafters niche of blogs and targets its advert delivery accordingly so that the advert content is more relevant to your readers interests. Advertisers pay well for this special targeting of their advertisements to an audience who are more likely to be interested in their products..
The adverts are available in the 3 most popular sizes and they ask that you have one advert on your site ‘above the fold’ so that it displays to the visitor without having to scroll down. They allow a maximum of 3 adverts on your site so things don’t look to cluttered.
And the payment is easy to understand – you are paid on a simple CPM basis – you get a fee per 1000 advert views. The rate of this fee varies according to the campaigns being run at the time and on my site I have seen it vary from 27c per 1000 to 98c per 1000 advert views. That is a rate that is comparing very favorably to an Adsense CPM rate, without the risks of dealing with Google.
And what’s the best thing about Rivit – the customer service. You get your own account manager who helps you in setting up your adverts, and is there to answer your questions and optimise your ads to get you the best rate of return. Once the ad boxes are set up, you just leave them to do their thing and watch your balance increase. Reporting is simple – you are shown your advert views, rate per mille and the daily earnings. Simple.
However, as is true with most forms of advertising – it’s a numbers game. So your visitors and page views are important. If you only get a few page views per day, then you won’t earn too much from RPM display advertising.
