Brian Casel has a great post over on DesignM.ag that showcases the various opportunities that exist to run a freelance business around WordPress. Developers, designers, and copywriters all have a ton of opportunities to make money around WordPress. I suppose I would fit into the freelance journalist category even though I don’t consider myself to be a journalist. I know I’ve mentioned WP125 before to manage advertising on your site but Brian linked to one other advertising system that may suit your needs called Advertising Manager. Based on the features page, this looks to be a nifty plugin. I might review this at some point in the future.
The Skies The Limit For Freelancers And WordPress

Thanks to your advice, I installed WP125 and I love it. Calling it an ad manager doesn’t do it justice because its functions are not specific to advertising. It can be used to display and rotate any content (images or text with embedded links), schedule their removal from the list and track click-throughs. It does not require a subscription to AdSense or other program to be useful.
If I can be sure that the click-through tracking works correctly, it would be perfect for what I need. Once I generate cash-flow, it is my top plugin donation priority.
Thanks for the shout out!
By the way – I haven’t had much experience with Advertising Manager (or any ad management for that matter), but that seemed promising on first glance.
