Adventures in Paid Advertising

Today marks a very special moment for Oktopod: We’re currently running our very first paid ad! I’m so excited I could darn near wet myself right now.

For the bargain price of just $40 USD, the kind folks over at Kindleboards will be showing a 728×90 banner all day long (50% of the time). They claim each ad will garner around 4,000 impressions, which means I’m paying about a buck per 100 views. Not too shabby.

The ad looks like this:

Despite it running off the page here, I think it looks pretty spiffy for a Sunday project… if I do say so m’self. Oh, and you can click it if you’d perhaps like to buy a copy of Stars Rain Down, by the way. *cough cough*

Anyway, Stars Rain Down’s current sales rank is #44,471. Here’s hoping for something under 5,000 by the end of the day.
