If you have been clicking around my site recently, you may have noticed a few changes.  For one, look at my navigation bar up top.  See it?  You can now find things a bit easier.  Want to find a recipe I wrote about?  Just click on the recipe tab!  Another change?  Check out the side bar.  It has a few more sponsors over there.

One of the sponsors is Adproval.  I recently switched my sponsor page to Adproval for a number of reasons (some which I have already shared).  When I was first interested in switching, I emailed Matthew to get a little more information.  I learned that Adproval is relatively easy to use.  They don’t charge for swaps, and only charge 10% of every ad you sell.  No monthly fees, just 10% every time.  Catch that?  NO MONTHLY FEES :).

Matthew even offered to set up my store for me, using the sponsorships that I had set up through “that other site”.  I was worried I would have to switch at the end of all my current sponsors, or risk losing them.  However, Matthew was able to switch over all my current sponsors when I provided him with the end date.

Easy, huh?

Once Matthew created my store, he sent over the codes for me to plug into my blog.  This was all done via email in less than half a day.

After the store was set up on my sponsorship page, we set up a time to talk via google hangout.  I had no idea how informative our little chat was going to be.  In our chat, Matthew went over a “Guide To Selling Your Ad Space with Adproval”.  This went over ways to improve my site and better ways to market my blog.  I was vigorously taking notes and was excited to start implementing everything he suggested (I almost have my list complete!).

On top of that, he offered to be my first sale.  How cool is that?  He is helping me track how much traffic my little blog is driving to his site, so that I can share that with potential “future sponsors”.

Since our chat, I have emailed Matthew with a few questions, and have received quick feedback.  I love how my sidebar is starting to be filled up a little more, and hope to continue to see it grow.  I have been blown away with Adproval’s customer service, even with me being a small blog.

Are you thinking about switching but aren’t 100% sold?  Let me help you decide!  Ask questions or send me an email at sliceofmudpie@gmail.com.   I have been completely happy with my switch and would love to help others who are looking for a new way to sell sponsorship or ads on their blog.

Also, Matthew is offering a consultation to one of my lovely readers.  I mentioned how informative I found the “Guide To Selling Your Ad Space with Adproval”, and would love for you to benefit as well.  This could also help you decide if you would like to start working with Adproval as well.  If you are interested in the consultation, just leave a comment!

5 Thoughts on “Making the Switch to Adproval

  1. Love this! I am so glad that he was able to help you, I know that must have been scary. I am still debating what to do here. Wow..we finally get to see what Matthew look like! Have a great weekend girlie!

  2. I have thought about switching to adproval but I actually created an account in the past and got all kinds of confused! lol

  3. I feel like I’ve been living under some sort of blogging rock. I had no idea there was an alternative to “that other site”! I haven’t had sponsors on my blog for a while because I didn’t want to work with the other. Now that I know I have another option I’m so excited!! I’m checking them out tonight! And a consultation would be AH-Mazing!

  4. That’s great! I think this weekend I will try to switch as well :)
    Thanks for this post, it’s really informative!
