Yesterday, I introduced you to Blogkits, an advertising service which promotes itself as a viable alternative to Google Adsense. Blogkits creator, Jim Kukral, sent me the following information in an email, and I decided to pass it along to you verbatim:
BlogKits is the first, and only affiliate marketing network built for bloggers. It’s an alternative monetization method for millions (99% of all blogs) of low-traffic bloggers who aren’t expert marketers.
Why is BlogKits different than a normal affiliate network?
BlogKits ends the confusion, makes it simple & provides the best options that benefit the blogger. Here’s how.
When a blogger logs into a typical affiliate network, she sees thousands of programs to choose from. Once she selects a program to promote, she then sees a large assortment of banners and text links. What does she choose? She’s not an expert marketer. Which banner should she use? Where should she place it on here blog? Which product sells best?
It shouldn’t be so hard, BlogKits makes it easier…
When a blogger logs into BlogKits, she has to complete two simple steps. The first is to choose which type/style of advertisement to use. Either a simple text ad, or an understated sidebar banner ad, both built specifically for bloggers.
The second step is for the blogger to decide what type of ads will fit best for her readers. For example: if she has a blog that is read mostly by small businesses, she would simply grab one pre-built piece of tracking code for that category, place it in her blog, and be done.
The BlogKits system will rotate the pre-selected ad units for the blogger. Each time a reader clicks and purchases, the blogger earns a % of that order.

BlogKits was created by Jim Kukral, in early 2005 as a solution to help bloggers find new ways to earn a profit with third blogs.
BlogKits was acquired in 2006 by Forge Corporation, a global affiliate marketing firm, and transformed into a world-class fully tracking solution built on the Direct Track network.
Our business model is simple…
Help 99% of 50-70 million low-traffic bloggers make a few extra bucks by giving them easy to implement tools and partnerships that lets them keep blogging, instead of trying to be an expert marketer.
We’re an alternative to things like Google Adsense. We believe that low-traffic blogs will never make more than a few pennies per day with Adsense, and argue that those bloggers are better served shooting for a CPA return on investment.
