Due to be announced tomorrow, Text Marks will be introducing a new and possibly a money making scheme for bloggers and website owners, sounds interesting!

textmarksWell what you would need to do is open an account, select the pricing which is $4.99 to $9.99per month, add a customized flash widget to your website or blog, write about the alerts that you are planning to send out, you can view your reports online and receive your payments by checks, how simple is that? Well it does sound simple but lets into this a bit more closely.

So what you would need to do is go the Text Marks website, click the monetize button, this takes to the page where publishers can set up their accounts, firstly the publisher or blogger will need to sign up, this will give you access to the Text Marks set up system where you can fix the price that your subscribers will pay for the text alerts, the price is set at $4.99 and $9.99 per month, the publisher will get one third of this subscription, the rest goes on the fees charged by the carriers and text marks themselves.

As a publisher you decide what news will be sent out via the alerts, so you are able to match this to your own business model, say for instance if your blog is a cars, then you are able to offer car news to your subscribers, who will receive up to a 100 text alerts per month containing the news that they want, delivered direct to their mobile phones via your Blog or Website.

This appears to be a genuine money making opportunity for bloggers and webmasters to make a little extra cash, while still keeping in line with the news type theme, you as a blogger have set in your blog and that your readers have become accustomed to.

There are some downsides to this, the possibility of conflict of interest, do bloggers and commercial enterprises make for a suitable mix, and normally bloggers are against the commercialization of their blogs and do it, just because they have something to say.
