Blogs and monetization. They usually don't go together very well.
But a Canadian startup by the name of Skyscrpr hopes to change that. Dubbed "the easiest way for bloggers to sell ads directly to advertisers," this GrowLab-accelerated company's service works seamlessly with WordPress, Tumblr, Squarespace, and Blogger.
Bloggers create new ad inventory with a drag-and-drop interface. Advertisers purchase ad placements on the blogs. Then the bloggers watch their ad sales via a real-time visual dashboard.
Any platform that can monetize blogs in five minutes possesses incredible potential. We can't wait to see how this startup story unfolds.
