BUY Text Links and Banners
SELL Text Links and Banners
I wanted to write today and discuss buying links from text link brokers. Until the introduction of LinkSmile, there has been no easy alternative (other than searching the web constantly) to using the services of a text link broker. So, they were a beneficial and wise choice.
However, the advent of LinkSmile changes everything.
1. One pitfall of using text link brokers is that it typically takes several days (sometimes weeks or over a month) to get links placed. No one is looking out for you, so if you do not notice; then you simply get taken. Granted, if you stay on top of things; then you'll be alright, but who has time for that? Isn't that what you're paying for.. peace of mind?
LinkSmile's new technology finally provides the long-awaited services of fully automating ad and link placement. So, there's not more lengthy waiting periods and going back and forth to get it done right.
2. Next we point out that going through a broker typically means higher prices (as they mark up costs to pay themselves) or slower response times if they take a 50%-60% cut instead of hiking prices -since the webmaster is less thrilled about taking a pay cut for his web site ad space.
LinkSmile automates the process and makes it easy for advertisers and webmasters to come together in a conducive manner that lowers costs for both parties and streamlines the entire process.
3. As for streamlining the process, one of our biggest irritations was the constant emailing back and forth to get payment information, link texts, descriptions, specific pages, etc.
LinkSmile makes it easy by automating payment, gathering link information via a form immediately after payment, showing the domain (and page, if applicable) immediately after payment, and even offers a "store your ads" feature to allow one-click choosing of an ad to place! No more full inboxes, no more delays, and no more wondering.
4. In an effort to automate link placement, our competitors have begun to place standard "link boxes" or -what we call- "link farms" on their webmasters' sites. These are a like a bright flashing beacon to search engines, and sites using these link boxes will inevitably be less effective for your campaigns as a result.
LinkSmile's technology allows for a more natural and integrated advertisement. So, no more worrying about whether advertising on a site will be a waste because they are tagged as part of the "link farm" network. Our network partners will be in a "safe zone" -so to speak.
All in all, direct link brokers played an important role in the evolution of online marketing and online advertising, but now those dinosaurs must die out and make way for the new innovations and the future of online advertising that LinkSmile brings.
