Top 5 Ways to Monetize your Website or Blog

Welcome to Buxr.com!

May 18th, 2007

At Buxr.com we are working on a next generation widget and website that will help bloggers and webmasters monetize their sites. The team of founders is comprised of experienced bloggers and webmasters who know how challenging it is to earn money running your own site. Frustrated with the limitations the existing revenue earning alternatives have, we decided to build a widget that has something that no other network offers.

What is a widget?

According to Wikipedia “a web widget is a portable chunk of code that can be installed and executed within any separate HTML-based web page by an end user without requiring additional compilation. They are akin to plugins or extensions in desktop applications.” Simply put, a widget is a small part of code that you can insert anywhere inside your blog or website. Once inserted, a widget acts as an embedded web-page offering add-on functionality to the main site. If you have a analog clock floating on your desktop, you’ve already used widgets.

Widgets have been traditionally used for advertising functionality of a parent website. Additionally, the companies offering products or services place banners inside widgets which are then embedded into blog or website pages.

Why the Buxr widget is different?

The Buxr widget will not be traditional advertising, instead it will offer useful and timely content that your reader will devour. Most advertising is distracting and offers little value to the visitor. The Buxr widget will offer useful content that is pertinent to your readers. Best of all, the content will update itself, so there is minimal effort required to manage your advertising.

Lastly, while many advertising networks offer you a fixed payout or a pay per click payout, the Buxr widget will have no limitation to the amount of money you can earn. Earning will be based off a commission on a sale, not a limited fixed payouts. So as your site grows, your Buxr commissions will grow as well.

But what is this “content” you speak of?

We will be happy to tell you all about how the Buxr widget works when we open it to public beta later this year. We believe the Buxr widget will offer something special to your visitors, and will give them a reason to click and generate revenue for you!

I want to sign up now! How do I get more information?

We are anticipating a 2007 Q4 release for the Buxr website and widget. Go to Buxr main site to sign up for our mailing list, for special announcements and participation in our Beta test.

We look forward to a long partnership together,

See you in early 2007 Q4,

The Buxr Team!
