A month ago we interviewed fashion and shoe blogger, Tracie Murphy. We recently had the opportunity to interview another "shoe blogger," Derek Miner, who uses Shopzilla Publisher on his excellent Shoes of the Day site. Derek took a moment to speak about his site and why he's using Shopzilla Publisher on it.
Chris: Please tell us a little about yourself, Shoes of the Day, and how it came to be:
Derek: I am a Scorpio - oops, wrong platform. I am passionate about shoes and one of the few males that I know who has more shoes than his spouse! Shoes of the Day was created to provide a unique online shoe review experience - real reviews with an occasional random post to mix it up for fun.
Chris: How do you find your material to blog about?
Derek: Thanks to the Internet, jet airplanes and public transportation, the possibilities are endless to find good shoe content to see and write about. I must also give a shout-out to the niche retail shoe stores and shoe companies who send me shoes to test, take pictures of, review and write about.
Chris: Why do you use the Shopzilla Publisher Program's ads?
Derek: We want our users to have a great shoe experience on our site. One of the main reasons that Shoesoftheday.com uses the Shopzilla publisher ads is that they showcase unique shoes visually - not just text, but a variety of footwear displayed just how we want it on our pages. Also, knowing that when our users click in the ad on a pair of shoes they are interested in, they are taken to a trusted Shopzilla vendor who will give them the best price for their next pair of shoes.
Chris: Anything else?
Derek: Visit ShoesOfTheDay.com to find a review on your next pair of shoes. Want to promote your shoe brand? Send us a pair and we'll take it from there.
Chris: Thanks, Derek! We wish you and Shoes of the Day continued success! To any Publishers reading this, if you are interested in participating in our regular Publisher Affiliate Spotlight series, please contact us.
