    "In several cases data shows that we've improved sales as much as 20% from where the book was before the Blogads campaign started. I've also gotten reports that sell-through has gone up as much as 30% and that the books get higher velocity and show up on the best seller lists higher than expected."

    "When I need to find a particular market, whether broad or niche, I think BlogAds. Making that decision even easier is the cost-efficient pricing, impressive share of voice, and conversational ad format. We’ve had strong responses to campaign after campaign with BlogAds."

    "Selecting blogs for a campaign and accessing campaign stats are easy. All in all, has an excellent system for purchasing ads."
  • David Kilpatrick, Author of LA Stalker LA Stalker
    "I like Blogads; I'm getting a better click-thru rate on them than I had on BCentral banner ads, for the most part. At least, more people are actually BUYING my books after clicking through. I really wanted to focus to a narrow market, especially L.A.-based media. I know the big money in writing is having movie options on your book. (I've optioned one already), not selling books. So if I can just break even in sales, but expose the books to people who can get me into the movie-making machine, that is what I'm after. I can't get that with the rather broad dispersal in banner advertising."
