read what is included
Always read what is included the advertising package and see if you think it is worth it. Different blogs offer different things and some packages may highlight you where other packages you don’t care that much about. For example, some blogs offer a giveaway as part of the package but if you don’t have a product to giveaway you might not want to pay for that space – you might thrive off of a package that let’s you guest post or includes you automatically in a group giveaway! Also, there are other options besides side bar ads, if you have a product, look to be involved in giveaways and product reviews.
