Bloggers are constantly on the hunt for new ways to generate revenue from their site, and I recently came across a new one. Fwix AdWire is a widget-based addon you install anywhere on your site that displays local news headlines for a location that you pre-set. You can also leave the location as a variable, which will change depending on where the visitor to your site is located. The local news widget displays clearly identified text ads. Publishers earn money when their readers view or click on those ads.
It’s very similar to Google AdSense, but instead of advertisements for products and services, the visitor sees local news headlines.
You’re probably thinking that this widget doesn’t really work well on an Internet marketing website — you’re right. This widget would be more suited for a personal blog, or a site that targets local traffic.
Currently the program is restricted to U.S.-based publishers, but the company told me today that they will open it up to Canadians by tomorrow!
Here’s how you can customize your widget:
How much you make is based on how well your widget performs, which you can monitor from inside your control panel.
Advertisers can also benefit from AdWire, not just publishers. You can purchase ad space within other widgets, such as your competitors if you’re feeling a bit evil.
Payments are made to publishers within 60 days after the end of each calendar month, only when ad revenue for that publisher’s widgets combined exceeds $50. Payment is made via PayPal or check.
