I say nothing bad but I understand that BLAM ads is his sponsor… anyway it is not important. (The owner is cool and writes good content)
The real issue is making money online. (it is not a bad thing)
How far are you ready to go to make money online?
BLAM ads is a content locking ad network. I never use it but I see similar services online. BLAM ads might be good or bad. I do not know.
However, similar services, I see online, are just bad.
What is content locking ad?
I will use an example I saw online the other day.
Imagine you have a video (a movie or live sport event video). You are ready to show this video in exchange of money
As you may know, not everyone has a credit card. Not everyone is ready to pay for a movie or a live sport event when it is free somewhere else.
This is where content locking ad can be useful. The user completes an action (mini survey, “free” offer etc…) to watch those videos. It is “free” on their side.
The ad network pays you for each complete action. You can get from pennies to $XX+.
Advantage: you get pay and the user does not need a credit card.
Many people call it the virtual currency.
On paper, it is the best solution ever to make money online. However, there is a problem.
I will never recommend those offers to my mom. They are not mom friendly.
It opens the door for many spam and scam actions. Recently I read this article about Facebook suing many affiliates and ad network. (Scary stuff … some people are ready to do anything)
They use this information to spam anyone.
Again, I do not know about BLAM ad ethics and service. So far, no offer I saw online with content locking is mom friendly.
It is cool to make money but it is cooler to do it the right way.
