Ethics, Advertorial, WordAds, continued…

How to make Advertorial “ethical” in WordPress, because, WordPress is ethical.  It’s run by a Capricorn.  I’m one too, so…

I have been talking about styles of advertorial and what I might use “Profile” for to write up an advertising campaign?

I’m doing a redesign with paint, and let me show you how an artist does a thing like this, because the project began last October, can you believe it?

With one tiny can of Valspar Paint called “Delphinium Corsage.”

I fell in love with the paint chip.  Three paint chips actually.

Paint changes everything.

If writing an Advertorial that is also a testimonial, show the pictures!

Valspar had me at the name “Delphinium Corsage” because I love the flowers.

How do you begin to describe a name for a paint color like that?

Artists made that color.

I loved the blue.

At my local hardware store, they mixed the color for me in a little test can.

Then I began to think how pretty blue and white was going to look.

I bought some little Spanish plates,  and some little flower plates from China at Pier One, along this theme.  I decided I’d make a statement on the walls with these.  Here are the patterns:

So, if I am going to write an Advertorial as a Testimonial, I’m actually going to walk you through how I did things.

Because I am an artist.

If I am going to write for WordAds, and the words are going out all over the world?

Valspar might want to see how they have inspired me.

What a company like theirs might want is to show the paints as ads?

Especially after I show the transformation.

In a case like this I might use “Portfolio” and put links?

I’m not sure how WordAds will work yet, but I am  loving Gutenberg.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thinking about the power and scope of WordPress 2018, in images…

So I tried a little test this morning with WordAds, except I did not link words because the computer was very slow.  It’s old and I haven’t set up the new one yet.  What I did was to Facebook from WordPress what I said about “Valspar, Delphinium Corsage” a few days ago.  In the meantime I have turned on my “get paid for WordAds” thing because I have “Premium.”  As I said, I might as well be a rank beginner compared to the rest of you “tech people” – so there were no comments by any of my friends on that post, which makes me think that they never saw it in FB, not kidding on that, for WordPress Admins.

At any rate, the “translation” button I have on my front page…

Well, what this means is that if I have made a positive and FUN posting, it can be translated AROUND THE WORLD into so many languages it’s uncanny.

So, earlier I checked my stats and a friendly very tech Italian came by for the second time.  I looked at his gravatar and also went to his page to see – he would be a TECH person up on things who blogs in here as well.  I took a screen shot to show you how I am thinking and using Gutenberg.

Here are more images and thoughts…

This is advertorial with a very positive message about Valspar as in “Testimonial” style of Advertorial, and here is is available with GLOBAL REACH.

That was version that I FB’d earlier today.

Again and looking at the power of GLOBAL REACH via “translators” — this really ups the ante on WordAds as Advertorials.

It is only ethical, in my opinion to give a true opinion or testimonial style ad, and show pictures that BELONG to me as I go.  Of the products I am actually using.  It would be the same with any stores that I am going to.

Nobody clicked through on FB.

So that was test #1 and I can try again as I think how I might do the linking as Advertorial.

ps: this part is really cute tooScreen Shot 2018-08-30 at 4.41.12 PM
