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.
The company has already attracted a lot of attention. VentureBeat called Skyscrpr's solution "simple and sexy." And TechCrunch was also impressed with the Vancouver company.
Any platform that can monetize blogs in five minutes possesses incredible potential. We can't wait to see how this startup story unfolds.
