Blogads (http://blogads.com) is a third-party service that offers several features to both advertisers (you) and publishers (us), including easy tracking of ad campaigns across multiple sites, and a simple ad creation interface. However, Blogads allows the advertiser to create ads in a relatively small number of shapes and sizes, and do not allow banner ads of any kind. On MPP, Blogads appear in the rightmost sidebar starting beneath the MENU blox. Rates are as detailed on MPP’s Blogads.com page.
To set up an ad in one of these spaces, you’ll need to do the following:
Create an advertiser account on http://blogads.com
Log into your new account
Click BUY BLOGADS in the left sidebar
Filter the list down to MN Progressive Project (you can do this by clicking ADVANCED SORTING, selecting MN as the state, then clicking DISPLAY. This will allow you to find MPP much more quickly)
Select MPP, click CONTINUE, then create your ad. We can help walk you through the ad creation interface if you require assistance.
Once these steps are complete, there’s nothing more for you to do — your payment goes to BlogAds, they take their 30% cut, and we get paid when our total revenues hit a certain threshold.
