Affiliate Marketing

Hi Neighbors!

I thought about signing up for an affiliate marketing program, but I am not sure if I want to or not.  Have any of you ever worked with orangesoda affiliate marketing?  I am just not sure on the decision yet.  What do my neighbors think?  Would it just be a distraction on the site, or do you think you might enjoy having affiliate ads on At the Fence?

I know there are a few sites that I have seen and that have way too much on their sites.  Their pages are just much too cluttered.  You know what I am talking about, they seem to advertise on every corner of their site every product they have ever reviewed.  I don't want to look like that.  I want At the Fence to be a pleasant place to visit.  Somewhere you can stop, take a break from your busy day and find interesting articles, reviews, and giveaways.  Not where you are constantly having ads appear, requesting you to purchase something and popping up on every article.

I need some feedback from my neighbors here.  I already do sponsored posts and some guest posts, but I usually try to monitor those and keep them family friendly.  I have even turned down a couple offers that although the post was fine, the page they linked to was not my idea of family acceptable. Not often, but it does happen. I am a little pickier than some because I won't allow links to sites that mention gambling, casino games, or even pages where their ads show questionable pictures.  I don't want to have someone reading a post and then clicking through to an offensive link.

So, what do you think?  Would an occasional ad be fine? At the end of posts or in the sidebar?  Do you prefer we stay just the way we are?  What suggestions do you have to help improve At the Fence?  Would you like to see recipes?  More photos?  Special Articles?  Take a minute to let me know in a comment what you think will help improve At the Fence.

Thanks for stopping by and come back for a visit soon, At the Fence!
