Have I Got a DEAL for you!on 07/11/2012 at 12:40 am
I have done this before, with no success, so I thought I’d offer it again in light of Penny Arcade doing a Kickstarter for $250,000 to do one thing… remove ONE ad from their website. Yes, you heard that right. A site that is at the top tier of online comics in a lucrative position is asking for a QUARTER OF A MILLION dollars to remove ONE ad. (I seriously doubt they have a problem providing for their families as it is. This is all just a: Let’s see what we can get away with! move. I don’t take issue with it. They have their fans and their fans are amazingly devoted. That’s great!
So here’s my deal. I’ll REMOVE ALL the ads off of Cyantian.net for $600 a month. (That includes the monthly goal of $300 for 7 days a week updates that I haven’t mentioned I’m going to do soon.) For your part, you will get 7 updates a week, because I won’t have to take on anymore commissions. So at $300 – you get 7 updates a week! At $600 all the ads come down except one small graphic that will link to the supporters page. EVERYONE who donates will get their name on the page unless they ask NOT to have their name on the page.
$600. That’s not even a fraction of $250K. Lesse.. that breaks down to almost 21K a month! I’m happy if I make that in a YEAR. (I used to… 3 years ago.) So, $600 a month x 12 months = $7,200. Heck. I’ll sweeten the deal by throwing in ALL THE ADS ON SHIVAE.NET!! So I’ll remove all the ads from two of my sites and I get to feel far more comfortable month to month!
IF you want to take me up on it, paypal button’s to the right and I have a Serve account if you hate paypal. All proceeds go to paying bills, groceries and gas for a family of three with one car. I’d finally pay off the laptop I bought almost 2 years ago!
Not doing this on Kickstarter or Indiegogo because I see no reason to hand over 4% to 5% just so they can handle it.
- Tiff, somewhat worn out with the monthly grind and stress of making ends meet. *Yes, most of this post is in jest, because I don’t believe it’ll happen.*
