Monetizing Newsletters

We created the BuySellAds marketplace to simplify ad buying across websites. We've been working to bring this concept to all facets of online content monetization, and we have lined up a great option for newsletters.

Under BuySellAds we operate two networks that work together to create a newsletter monetization powerhouse, they include LaunchBit and Syndicate. Here's now it works.

LaunchBit

LaunchBit works for any size newsletter. We have an ad bidding system that works on a CPC model for advertisers. We offer two ad formats, a 125x125 + text (best CTR) and a 468x60.

Once you are approved, we dynamically load pre approved ads when each newsletter is open. Here's an example of a recent newsletter with live LaunchBit ads.

To get started on LaunchBit, apply here.

Syndicate

Syndicate works well for larger newsletters. It allows you to sell sponsorships on a weekly or daily basis, depending on how often your newsletter is sent. Here's an example of a couple of newsletters we have on Syndicate: Web Design Weekly & Sidebar.io.

You can set your own price, and specify exactly what you offer. If you're not sure what that should be, we're happy to help.

We offer the ability to block dates you've sold directly, have a great widget you can use to make sales on your site, and more. Read all about being a publisher here.

You can apply to Syndicate here.

LaunchBit + Syndicate = Powerhouse

As you can imagine, these work well in conjunction. If you don't have a direct sponsor one week from Syndicate, you can plug into LaunchBit and fill the inventory. If your newsletter is too young for a direct sponsorship, ride LaunchBit to make money from your first email!

If you have any questions, drop us an email. We'd love to help you get the perfect setup rolling for your newsletter.
