p2pnet news | Advertising:- Back in July, 2007, “It’s been three years in the making, but here it is: the new and improved p2pnet,” I posted. “The changes are obvious, the most important being instead of having everything dumped into one archive, articles are now categorized.”
To paraphrase a bit, to keep on keeping on, p2pnet has to expand and to make that happen, obviously there has to be steady income from somewhere. And that somewhere has to be advertising.
I’d rather not, but I have a family as well as a site to support, so it’s necessary —- not that I have anything against advertising per se. It’s been around forever. What I don’t like are tricky, intrusive ads which treat us like we’re idiots, and we’ll have none of that here.
I’m planning on using advertising income to do things such as hire at least one other person to help me. (And two would be even better )
The specific story sections will be open to advertisers who want to tell people about what they do, or what they have to offer, in an honest way.
I absolutely, cast-iron, carved-in-rock promise you’ll never see crap ads promoting dodgy ‘services,’ or pop-ups, images floating around while you’re trying to read. Stuff like that.
New York’s Ken Baron is an experienced advertising professional who’ll be looking after p2pnet ad sales. Like me, he wants only ads for products and services a p2pnet visitor such as you would care about. So not just anyone will be allowed to advertise on p2pnet.
To do his job, Ken needs information about who reads p2pnet and with that in mind, I’ve put together a really short – like one-minute short – survey. There are no painful questions and the more people who help, the more data Ken will have so he accurately tell people about advertising in p2pnet.
Click here to go to the survey page, on which I say: “No information, other than the responses to the questions, is being gathered. There’s no sneaky data collection going on here. This is to help Ken, who’s going to be dealing with p2pnet advertising, tell possible advertisers about the kind of people who visit the site.”
In the post mentioned at the beginning, “p2pnet is all about people being able to virtually talk to each other without restrictions,” I said. “It was never, and still isn’t, entrepreneurial.”
Freedom of expression, “is the matrix, the indispensable condition, of nearly every other form of freedom,” said Benjamin Nathan Cardozo, an American jurist (1870-1938).
That’s the way it still is, and that’s the way it’ll always be.
