Takeaways

  • Readers don’t pay for access to your site, so ads allow that content to remain free and allow the publisher to continue providing quality content.
  • AdThrive believes in publishers content being front and center with the ads being around that, not taking over the space. If you have concerns about placement of ads, reach out to AdThrive for questions; they have flexibility on placement.
  • AdThrive vets each and every site that applies to becoming a partner through their company and has to verify quality content as well as an audience that creates page views that help a blog earn enough. Because AdThrive has this scope of really high quality partners, advertisers trust them and pay appropriately to the network. This benefits AdThrive and all the partners.
  • Google Adsense is a great way to get started if you can’t join the AdThrive network yet. This allows you to get started and build up a history with advertisers. It also allows your audience to get used to ads on the site.
  • AdThrive offers premium exclusive advertising deals, which is different from Google Adsense, which runs programmatic advertising.
  • AdThrive makes sure that your site is optimized and making top dollar for your content. AdThrive operates on a revenue share which means they only make money when you make money.
  • AdThrive has a whole team focused on proactively reaching out to publishers on a regular basis. They are watching how your ads are performing, offer suggestions and can update your site.

What’s up food bloggers. Welcome to Eat Blog Talk. This podcast is for you, food bloggers, wanting value, information and clarity that will help you find a greater success in your business. Today, I will be having a conversation with Megan Tenney from AdThrive and we are going to talk about running display ads using ad management companies. Megan is a member of the AdThrive communications team, using her 12 plus years of blogging experience to serve publishers and anticipate their needs. She is a little obsessed with organization and efficiency and likes to relax at the end of the day with a good spreadsheet. Megan is currently traveling the world with her husband and their four children. Oh, that’s fun. I love that. And that is not your fun fact, but I kind of want to hear more about that, but tell us what you plan for your fun fact today, Megan.

Megan Tenney  (02:37):

Hi, Megan, from another Megan, thanks for having me on. That was actually going to be my fun fact. So let me share something else. So I also, in addition to having a background in blogging, I have a background in musical theater, so that’s kind of fun and unique.

Megan  (02:55):

That is fun and unique. I love both of those and I’m sorry, I spoiled your fun fact.

Megan T  (03:00):

It’s okay. It was in my bio. So there you go.

Megan  (03:02):

Where are you currently at? Where are you traveling now?

Megan T  (03:05):

We’re in Arizona right now, which is actually where we started. But tomorrow, actually we drive across the country, yet again to Florida and we’ll be there for a couple of months.

Megan  (03:14):

Now is the time to do a little bit of traveling, if you’re comfortable with it and healthy, and safe and all of that.

Megan T  (03:20):

Exactly. So, you know, now that a lot of people are working from home and schooling their kids at home, if that’s what they’re doing at this point in time. It’s funny because when that all kind of started, it didn’t really affect us so much because we were already schooling our kids at home and working remotely. It means we can basically do it from anywhere.

Megan  (03:38):

We are actually taking advantage of this time as well. My husband and I decided since our boys are doing distance learning most of the time and we both have flexibility, I have more than he does, but we both have semi flexibility with our jobs. We decided to travel a little bit too. So we are doing just random trips through the fall and winter. I just feel like, why not? If we can do it and they can work from anywhere and we can work from anywhere, then we should do it. We are doing the same thing. Well, let’s get on to why you’re here today, here in this very unusual year that we were just referring to in 2020. Entrepreneurs have been digging into monetizing more than ever. I’m hoping to just shed light on how to bring in revenue, using display ads here in our conversation, that we have today. For so many years, ads were the main way food bloggers can make money blogging. Back when I started in 2010, that was the only way bloggers were making money. But that is no longer the case. There are so many different avenues currently, but it can still be a really big revenue driver for food bloggers. So Megan, I would love it if you started by sharing, why do you think food bloggers would want to run ads on their blog?

Megan T  (04:55):

Absolutely let’s chat. This is one of my favorite topics. One of the things is there’s just a lot of money to be made out there. Advertisers over the years have learned how valuable digital real estate is. And so there are advertisers that want to put their ads on your blog and pay you for it. There’s a good reason right there. I like to use a magazine as an analogy. So if you go to the store and you buy a magazine, you pay for it and you’re going to browse through it. You’re going to read some articles and look at pictures and you’re definitely going to see ads in there. Of course that’s a major part of a magazine company’s revenue strategy, is they sell ads. Well, a site on the internet is much the same way, but your readers aren’t actually paying in most cases to access your site.

(05:48):

For lack of a better term, they pay with their eyeballs. Especially these days, readers are used to this. Now, you know, you referenced starting back in 2010 and I think, back then a lot of people were blogging as a hobby and ads were not as mainstream as they are today. As a reader scrolling the web, you’re expecting to come across ads. It’s not something that’s very jarring anymore. You deserve to get paid for this incredible content that you’re putting out there. So digital advertising can really be kind of like a win-win win. Your readers are getting this incredible content for free. Advertisers are using your space to build their brand, their brand awareness and reach potential customers. You’re getting this passive income for all this hard work that you’ve put in and this really incredible content that you’re putting out there.

Megan  (06:49):

I love that you framed it like that. It’s a win-win when we’re all winning. And I think you’re so right in saying that people expect it now. I think maybe even just a few years ago, it was kind of a nuisance and there were discussions everywhere, like get rid of those ads. This is annoying, but now I just feel like people expect that. Not only that, but they have much more grace for it. They are realizing that content creators really put a lot of work into the content they create.

Megan T  (07:19):

Yeah. When I started back in 2008, it was more of a hobby, but now we see these food blogs that are really professional and we have some publishers that are kind of operating a one man show, they do everything up to publishers that have a whole team of people. So absolutely. I think readers are understanding that it’s not a simple process. There’s a lot of work. There’s a lot of time that goes into it. They’re used to seeing these ads and they are understanding more and more, I think, that this is how these publishers are being compensated for their work and their content. I know we’re going to talk a little bit about why AdThrive is so great, but I also wanted to mention that we also take into account the reader experience. Even though they’re used to seeing ads, that doesn’t mean we’re just going to throw up ads everywhere we possibly can. That’s still really important to not take advantage of that. To say, yes, readers are used to seeing ads, so we’re going to put them out there, but we’re also going to make sure that the content is at the forefront of what they’re seeing.

Megan  (08:30):

We appreciate that too. I think everybody appreciates that. First I wanted to ask you if somebody wants to get started running ads on their site, maybe they haven’t explored this option yet. How do they do that?

Megan T  (08:42):

So it depends a little bit on how new they are. If this happens to be a site that’s been around for awhile and is seeing quite a bit of traffic, they might already qualify for a company like AdThrive. So our monthly pageview requirement is a hundred thousand. Once the publisher hits that, we definitely invite you to apply. When you do, our team looks at every single site that applies. An actual human has their eyes on the site, checking it out. Backing up for just a moment, if there’s a site that’s maybe just getting started out or just hasn’t reached that requirement just yet, there are other ways that you can get started with running ads. We do encourage that for a couple of reasons. The main reason there is because you can start to build up a history with advertisers.

 (09:39):

So really new sites, we say, why don’t you get started with Google’s AdSense? And it’s almost a little backwards because you would think as a beginner, you really want to have your hand being held and AdSense doesn’t provide any kind of level of support. You kind of have to get in there and learn how it works. You’re putting the ads on your site yourself, but it’s a great way to get started, so that there’s some advertiser history there. Also your readers are used to seeing an ad or two on your site so that when you have built up enough that you can apply for something like AdThrive, that you’re kind of already have your foot in the door and you’ve got a good head start.

Megan  (10:20):

I like that you recommend that instead of just saying, Nope, hold out for us until you reach that minimum threshold. You’re actually encouraging people to do that and at least get that ad exposure up on your site so that people are used to seeing it. Then eventually you can have an ad management company that can help you through that a little bit more.

Megan T  (10:42):

You don’t magically start making money as soon as you hit a hundred thousand if you’re anywhere, even in that realm you’ll start making money through ads, through Google AdSense. Then when you come on board to AdThrive, you’ll see a significant bump because Google AdSense is running programmatic advertising, whereas at AdThrive, we do that as well as direct premium exclusive deals for our publishers. So there’s a lot more opportunities that become available.

Megan  (11:14):

Can I ask why the minimum number of page views? Can you explain that a little bit?

Megan T  (11:19):

Yeah, definitely. There’s a lot of reasons. One of the reasons is because we can share our portfolio of sites that we work with kind of as a whole, as like this AdThrive community to advertisers. Because we’re so strict about our requirements in letting sites in, advertisers, trust us. They know that AdThrive sites have this much traffic. They are super high quality, their content is brand safe. So it encourages them to spend more money on AdThrive sites. That helps AdThrivers across the board. Every new publisher that we add in, they are helping to improve the quality of the community because they’ve been vetted and then everybody else in the community is helping them kind of pulling them along. Because we have this scale and this scope of really high quality that advertisers know about.

Megan  (12:22):

So really it ensures that all of the publishers associated with you guys are taking it seriously, are doing it consistently and all of that. I think people wonder about that. So I think it’s just really good to put that out there because you guys do have a higher threshold, but again, it’s for quality purposes. But people wonder why is it a hundred thousand page views a month? That seems so high, but that is the reason, you were just trying to uphold that standard of quality.

Megan T  (12:51):

And it helps us to really focus on those publishers and to put all of our time and effort into helping our publishers increase their traffic and just make as much money as they possibly can. If you think of the other extreme, if we took just any site, every brand new site, sites that had just a hundred monthly page views, that would really spread us really thin and we wouldn’t be able to help everyone out as much as we do.

Megan  (13:18):

Yeah. Okay. Talk to us a little bit about the benefits of partnering specifically with you, with AdThrive.

Megan T  (13:27):

Our mission is that we manage everything for your ads so you can focus on what you do best, which is creating incredible content. If a publisher comes on and really wants to kind of have their hands in with deciding what ads to run and how to set up their ads, that’s great. We’ll work with that person. If we have a publisher come in that’s like, you know what? I trust you guys, handle it all. I don’t even want to think about it. We’ll help that publisher too. Anywhere in between. Our mission is we’ll take that off your shoulders. You don’t have to worry about your ads. We’re going to make sure that you’re super optimized, that you’re making top dollar for your content and something that’s really cool is we operate on a revenue share, as you know, which means we only make money when you make money.

 (14:22):

And that means that our goals are so perfectly aligned, that all we want to do is make you more money. So that’s really great, if you think about it. We want what’s best for you because it’s, what’s best for us. I talked about that customization based on what each individual publisher is looking for. We’ll always take that into account and we don’t just do a one-time, okay, your ads are installed. See you later! We have a whole team that’s focused on proactively reaching out to every single publisher on a regular basis to say, hey, here’s how your ads are performing. Here’s some suggestions, because as you know, the digital industry is always changing, certainly changing a lot in the past 10, 15 years. So what worked three years ago, doesn’t work today.

(15:12):

So we have a whole team of data scientists that are always pouring over the data to make sure what we’re recommending to you is the best thing for your site. We proactively reach out and make suggestions, and then, publishers can come back and say, I want to do this and this, but not this. And then we take care of it for them. So that’s our customer service and how we customize everything. Then on our backend, we have really strong industry relationships. We have relationships with major brands like Verizon AT&T, Amazon. And then well-known technology companies that run a lot of the backend of how the ad auctions work. And all of those relationships help us connect our publishers to tens of thousands of advertisers, so that you’re always making the most that you possibly can.

(16:08):

We are a Google certified publishing partner. That means that Google has taken a good, strong look at our business practices, the products we offer, our customer service and they feel comfortable saying, yes, this company is good to work with. It’s a stamp of approval from Google, which we know is a major player in the digital ad industry. And we really consider ourselves a leader in the industry itself. We’re at the forefront of the trends and developments. We’re really focused on being a voice for publishers in general, but especially smaller, independent publishers. So that’s something that we feel like we can kind of take on us. When a publisher signs on, you can certainly keep up with what’s going on in the industry, but we also want to worry about that for you.

Speaker 3 (16:59):

So a couple of examples, there are companies called Pre-bid and the simple way to explain what they do is that that’s the technology behind the programmatic auction that happens anytime someone bids. So every time someone visits your site, all of the ad spaces you have available on that site go through an auction like a near instantaneous auction, where advertisers compete to advertise in that spot. And Prebid is the company that has the technology that allows that to happen. We’re the first publisher organization to have someone on the board of the organization, being a voice for publishers there. So that’s very cool. And then I know a hot topic lately has been the fact that Google is going to retire third-party cookies in the future. And how can we create solutions for how advertisers can learn more about users and target users?

(18:00):

One of the major organizations that is kind of focused on that right now is called the W3C or the world wide web consortium. And that’s the organization that sets standards across the web. They’re handling those discussions right now about the future of third-party cookies and privacy regulations and all that. We just hired a full-time team member and his complete focus is going to be on being part of that organization and being a voice for publishers there.

Megan  (18:26):

Oh that’s great.

Megan T  (18:28):

Yeah. Then, to help our publishers be on top of all these things, we have the AdThrive blog. We actually started it back in March when the coronavirus hit and everybody was asking what’s going to happen. What’s gonna happen with my ad income? How’s this going to affect me? So we started doing at first, weekly, now every other week posts about what’s going on in the ad industry, what ad spending looks like, and just other things that are happening throughout the industry. So those are really great to check out every other week and just stay on top of.

Megan  (19:03):

I have to say, I love your blog and I really appreciated that you guys update that consistently. I’ve read it, I’ve devoured every single post that you’ve put up because I’ve just been so grateful for the fact that you guys have carried on with business in such an upstanding, just confident way since the quarantine hit. Because us content creators, we were kind of freaking out like what is going to happen? I think everybody was. There were a lot of unknowns and just having you guys kind of act as a pillar and say, okay, we don’t know what’s going on either. We don’t know what’s going to happen either, but we are going to do our best to support you. We are going to update you and be just totally transparent. I appreciated that. I know that if I did, many other people did as well. Because of that, I just always look for those blog posts and I mean, they’re so great. So thank you for doing that.

Megan T  (19:59):

Thanks for saying that. Yeah, there’s a lot of people, obviously, that have a hand in creating those posts, but my team kind of on the forefront there. I’ll let them know that you appreciate it.

Megan  (20:10):

Yes, absolutely.

Megan T  (20:12):

You just reminded me of something else, which is you probably remember when we put out our publisher payment guarantee, that’s something we announced earlier this year and kind of made a big deal about on the blog, which is that in a lot of situations, and there’s some blog posts that we can link to if you’d like to,gb that kind of go into a lot more detail than I can. But there’s a whole link of different levels to get publishers paid for the ads on their site. It starts way back with the advertisers, the brands themselves, and it goes through a lot of layers to get down to the publisher. Any point in that layer generally getting paid depends on the person before you getting paid. So it can happen a lot in the industry where publishers don’t get paid for ads that were displayed on their site because of, they’re referred to as advertiser clawbacks. Our publisher payment guarantee at AdThrive was to say, you will always get paid what you’re owed, even if AdThrive is the one that has to take the hit. What you’ve earned is what you’re going to get.

Megan  (21:22):

Yeah. Again, much appreciated there. I do remember reading that and I was like, thank you, AdThrive, you are the best. Because that is a concern all around. And you guys have just been great with all of that. Is there anything else, I mean, you went through a ton of incredible benefits for partnering with AdThrive. Is there anything else we missed that you want to touch on before we move on?

Megan T  (21:47):

That’s a lot of really good things.

Megan  (21:49):

Yeah. That was a lot. That was a lot of good things. So thank you for running through those. And then I have a few questions for you, but first I was wondering if you had any tips or maybe words of encouragement for food bloggers listening, who one day aspire to being a part of your network, who maybe are just on the threshold or are just starting out and the end seems so far away. Do you have anything for those people?

Megan T  (22:17):

Absolutely. If you’ve been reading the blog, you probably saw it, our creativity and data series, which talked a lot about finding inspiration for content and then kind of using factual data to determine what, what readers are looking for or what are the best ideas to pursue and actually create content for? And in our last episode of that, one of the things that we shared was, when you’re feeling overwhelmed, because I know as a publisher myself, that at any given moment, there are just so many different ways you could be spending your time, right? I mean, creating content, publishing content, promoting content, being accessible on social media, being available and active on social media and guest posting for other sites. And the list just goes on and on and on. So what we said is when you’re feeling overwhelmed, shoot for 1% gains. So what’s something that you could do every day just to make a small improvement. When you’re doing that every single day, those improvements are just steady and they’ll add up over time to something incredible.

Megan  (23:31):

Oh, that’s such great advice. I like that. Just a good way to frame what you’re actually working on because, Oh my gosh, like you said, there’s so much that we could be doing. Maybe thinking through that ahead of time can really make a big difference. So thank you for that. Then I have a few questions for you. I was wondering about your videos; mobile and desktop. Do your videos meet accessibility requirements because that’s such a huge thing right now, all across the board.

Megan T  (24:02):

Yeah. So that is something that we’ve noticed is kind of a hot topic lately. And again, I can give you a link to share. We published a help center article about accessibility and the ADA requirements for websites. And you asked specifically about the video player. So something that we’ve done this year has made it really easy for publishers to add closed captioning, for example. We always were able to do that, but it was kind of a more manual process where we’d have publishers create a closed caption file, send it into us, and add it to the video. And now it’s all available there, right in the dashboard that you get when you’re an AdThrive publisher. We have a whole video section in the dashboard where you can upload your videos and if you have a closed caption file, then that will appear on the videos for anyone that wants to turn it on. So that’s one way we’re approaching accessibility. Then the article that I mentioned, has a lot of suggestions in it based on the standard guidelines for how you could improve your site as far as usability and contrast, how you can test your colors to make sure that, someone that might have some sight difficulties is still meeting the standards for what it needs to be.

Megan  (25:28):

Great. That answers my question. Thank you. I was also wondering how much flexibility do food bloggers have with the number of ads and also positioning of ads. I know anytime I have reached out to you guys in the past, you’ve been really receptive and responsive. For example, my homepage, I noticed just for my liking, I had a little bit too many ads. So I reached out and just said, Hey, can you guys take this off of the top? And you were like, no problem. You did it. So how flexible are you guys, just in general.

Megan T  (26:04):

That’s a great question. I would say very flexible. We do have a minimum ad layout that we require, but it’s super minimal and we don’t have many publishers running an ad layout that is that small. I think the big thing that we would always do, is if a publisher wants to add an ad or subtract an ad is not so much whether we’re flexible to do it or not, but that we want to give you the information so that you can make the best choice. Because you as a publisher might look at it from just a reader perspective. Oh, this let’s say just for an example, let’s say the sticky footer ad that runs across the bottom of the site, you might think, ah, I don’t really love that. I don’t love the reader’s experience.

Megan T  (26:53):

Let me just see if AdThrive will get rid of it for me. So we can absolutely take that ad off, but we might come back and say, just so you know, that ad is bringing in 40% of your ad revenue. I’m just picking a random number, but that is one of our really, really viewable profitable ad units. We also provide information about that in the AdThrive dashboard. So a publisher that’s a little more hands-on might log in themselves and be able to see, Oh, that’s a really profitable ad. I don’t wanna remove that one. But yeah, my, my main point is we will get you the data that you need to then make a definite decision on that. We’re going to defer to what you want to do with your site.

Megan  (27:38):

That is so appreciated because you’re flexible yet you’re keeping our best interest in mind as well. You guys have been so good at communicating that. I love when I get an email from you and somebody on your team says, Hey, we noticed that this ad could maybe perform better here. You make little tweaks here and there. I never would know that. I don’t think any of us would on this side of the fence. I so appreciate when you do that, I’m always like, yeah, go ahead and go for it. If you guys think that’s good, then that’s good for me. Once a food blogger is approved to be a part of your network, can they get dropped? Is there anything we can do that gets us kicked out? What if our page views go below a hundred thousand a month? How does that usually work?

Megan T  (28:29):

So good question. In general, no, once someone has come on board and part of that is because we do vet publishers so intensely, we look at the content, we make sure it’s good content. We don’t just make sure that this publisher last month had a hundred thousand page views. We’re going to look at traffic patterns. Because let’s say there’s a publisher that had pretty consistently 50,000, but then one week had this really viral post and hit a hundred thousand. We might go back to that publisher and say, we want to see a little more consistency. We want to make sure you’re going to be hitting this number as we go forward. But that being said, once we’ve approved them and they’re in our network, we understand that fluctuations happen, search algorithms change and Pinterest changes up their requirements, their situation over there, and it can affect your traffic.

(29:23):

That’s certainly not something we want publishers to stress about. We do want publishers that are creating content and active. We don’t kick you out. If traffic tanks and actually what we really want to do is take a look at that for you and say you know, if we can identify why, get you any information that would help and then provide any resources we can to help turn things around. We provide AdThrive publishers right now with access to a top notch SEO course, and we’re providing resources for email marketing. Anything we can do to help you improve helps everybody in the community. We wouldn’t kick someone out because of traffic. We’ve had a couple of issues with brand safety where our advertisers do require brand safe content. If we find a site that all of a sudden is publishing stuff that could be considered violence or hate speech, something along those lines, then that could mean that we get in touch with that publisher and would always give them the chance to clean it up first. But it’s possible that we might have to say, that’s not in line with our standards anymore. We have to kind of let you go. But generally once, once you’re in, you’re in.

Megan  (30:41):

I think I’ve covered everything that I am curious about. Is there anything that you feel like we’ve missed talking about that you feel like food bloggers just absolutely have to know about, either working with ad management companies in general or working with AdThrive or any last minute things you want to mention?

Megan T  (31:00):

I would certainly invite anyone that meets our requirement to apply. That’s a super easy link to remember. It’s just adthrive.com/apply. Even if you’re really close, you know, it doesn’t hurt to apply and start developing a relationship. We’ll always get back to you and let you know what we think. This is the month, right. Thanksgiving last year or early this year, I put together a blog post celebrating AdThrive’s seventh birthday, and we wanted to look at some fun stats. We looked at 2019 and asked can we boil it down to this second that was the most profitable second the whole year? You better believe it was in the evening the day before Thanksgiving. Yeah, now is the quarter to enjoy that higher traffic. If you meet our requirements or come close, yeah, get in touch and we’ll see if we can bring you on.
