Join My New Ad Community at Adroll

I was searching for a free ad server for one of my blogs the other day, and came across a new ad network, called Ad Roll. I’m really excited about it, because it allows small publisher like me to join with other like-minded sites, and leverage our ad-selling powers.

I finally got into the advertising side of Blogging, because we really need to supplement my husband’s income with the economy the way it is. I feel that God has given me this ability 1) to reach others for Him, and 2) as a way of providing materially for our family. So I’ve been searching for ways to do just that.

Anyway, Ad Roll is really cool, because you can control every aspect of your ad space.

  • YOU decide where it goes on the page, and which or your blogs are included.
  • YOU decide what price you charge for each space.
  • YOU decide what networks and communities you’ll participate in, and you can always refuse an ad that doesn’t fit you. If you aren’t running any Adroll ads yet, you can place any in-house ads you want.
  • YOU can even call, and talk to a real person!!! I talked to Jared, and he was super helpful.

  1. Selling Power says:

    Dear Sarah:

    I just ran across an article you wrote on Real Life entitled Join My New Ad Community at Adroll, posted July 11, 2008,, and I would like to raise an issue that is of concern to Selling Power magazine, which is the use of our trademark.

    The word “Selling Power” is sometimes erroneously used as a synonym for sales effectiveness. For example, your article states: “I’m really excited about it, because it allows small publisher like me to join with other like-minded sites, and leverage our ad selling power.” We do not condone such uses of our trademark.

    As a practical matter, when you describe sales effectiveness, there are a wide range of terms available such as: sales excellence, sales savvy, sales mastery, sales acumen, sales efficiency, and many more.

    The reason for this letter is to educate writers like yourself that we want to protect our trademark, since we don’t want to risk Selling Power being declared by the courts a generic word. Therefore we ask you not to use Selling Power as a phrase since it is our legal trademark.

    We would like to receive a written acknowledgment of this letter stating that you will in the future identify Selling Power as a trademark if you should write about our magazine, and not use Selling Power as a phrase. If we do not hear from you, we will need to take further action.

    Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

    All the best,

  2. I’m not sure you can enforce trademark infringements on words that someone would naturally use in a sentence. It sounds ridiculous, and I suspect since you conveniently left your link, that this is some type of spam comment.

    I assume “ad-selling” is not identical to “selling,” so I’ll hyphenate the word accordingly.

    If you’d like me to respond in writing, please include an email address.


  3. OK, I’m being snarky, I’ll change it. I see that you’ve been trolling other blogs and leaving defensive comments.

    In the next few days, I’m going to delete your comment, since it is rude to leave unsolicited links in comments.

    Hey, I wonder if I could trademark the phrase, “Real Life.” Then, I could troll blogs looking for people who use those words in sentences, and write threatening letters!

    More snarkiness, sorry.
