TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: Should You Put Ads On Your Site?
  • [00:35] We’ve talked about this in the past.
  • [00:41] Neil doesn’t like putting ads on his site, because when he buys ads, he tends to not make the money that the advertiser is making.
  • [01:30] If you don’t have a product or service, leverage ads, and promote someone else’s service.
  • [01:45] Eric thinks it’s lazy to put ads on your site.
  • [02:25] Between affiliate income, ad income, and product sales, the ad income is always the lowest.
