My journey with Nuffnang

When did it all started? If my memory did not fail me, I recall that some 2 years ago, I noticed some strange icon (with the word Nuffnang) started appearing on most of my friends’ blog while blogging are considered the “in” thing at that point in time. Don’t get me wrong, they are still popular now, but for my age group, the interest has kind of wane down due to our work commitments.
.
Out of curiosity, I decided to click on the link to check the website out. Well, at first I was kind of skeptical regarding the mode of operation. Earn passive revenue by showing advertisements on your blogs? The more views that the advertisement has, the more revenue you will earn? Come on, most of them are closed down within 1 years and even those who are sustainable, their payout was so little that it may take years before I can receive any money at all! I can say that though this idea wasn’t fresh (USA and Europe websites has tons of them – you get paid by clicking on the advertisement links) but this is definitely a first in Singapore. In addition, the company, Nuffnang is headquartered in Singapore! Well, that kind of boost my confidence up a bit but still, can I earn enough to reach their payout of $50? Nevertheless, not wanting to condemn a company without giving it a chance to prove itself, I decided to sign up an account with it since it is FOC anyway. Even if it does fail, I won't lose anything at all, will I? =p Ever since, I must say that Nuffnang hasn't disappoint me one bit at all.

After becoming a member for 18 days, I finally got a new campaign from an advertiser. For the details, it can be seen here. I have watched this company grow from an infant into an adult. In 2008, to further enhance its position in the market and to stuff out competition, Nuffnang roll out the Nuffnang Glitterati program. It was a good strategic move as it force bloggers to choose sides and reward them for their loyalty to the company. To further reward and increase the avenue at which their members can earn their income, Nuffnang rolls out the LR (Large Rectangle) and LB (leaderBoard) Ad units, which was in addition to the SS (SkyScraper) already available.
.
With the success of the company (shown by increasing number of people signing up), more events began to come our way, some of which include free movie tickets to be won. I am proud to be able to participate and win in one of the events with the evidence in the photo below:

Though the user traffic to my blog is not always very high, but after 1 year since joining, I am able to do a cash out of $49.18! Well done Nuffnang! You really did not disappoint me~ May you continue to strive on and achieve new heights in the world!
