Tampa, FL, November 07, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Turning passion for social media into a career is one of the biggest hurdles most internet bloggers struggle to overcome. One such internet blogger believes he has found an innovative way to harvest his love for the grape into a full bodied paycheck. His blog which is aptly titled “The Wine Whore” focuses on writing about his "affairs" with wine in exchange for free samples. After successfully gaining thousands of loyal fans and followers by “whoring” out his palate (and computer), Randy Watson is using the same technique to sell otherwise unused space on his website.
In exchange for dollars, Randy superimposes advertisers’ logos and pictures over a prime location otherwise gaudily marked by a large red couch located at the top of every page. He jokingly refers to his marketing strategy as “pimping out” his virtual couch. How much does it cost to be seen hanging out on Watson's prime corner of internet real estate? As a creative twist, the pricing model features a bidding system based solely upon demand. On less desirable days, price per day goes down. More popular days sell at a premium.
All guests that "sit" on the virtual couch receive a formal introduction. To obtain more information, visitors to the site click the guest’s image. The concept ensures that thousands of younger, internet savvy, wine loving viewers are exposed to sponsors in a way that is fun, informative, and unique. For advertisers, this means much higher click-through rates than most other internet based advertising available today. For Randy Watson, this means a chance survive on the means streets of the internet and fulfill his dreams of becoming a full-time blogger.
