Free advertising on my sites
Hey - just a quick plug to let you guys know that I'm offering free advertising on JAMMAForever.com and culture-shock.net, no catch.
JAMMAForever.com is a site developing homebrew arcade cabinet games (real-life stand up arcade machines with free and open-source games). Users are typically interested in hardware and software hacking, retro video games, programming and open-source (much traffic comes from search engine queries on "JAMMA" (the standard wiring harness for arcade games) or "game programming").
Culture-Shock.net hosts a webcomic and some science fiction writing. It's still in its infancy in this incarnation, but has a fan base going back from 2000.
Advertising is arranged through Project Wonderful, a new advertising system by Canadian Ryan North (which was enough to persuade me - everything that guy touches turns to gold) which operates on an "Infinite Auction" CPD basis.
Advertising can be purchased at any price, and you will pay ten cents more per day than the guy you outbid. Kinda like eBay, except that $0.00 is a legitimate price too, so you can advertise for free if nobody else is willing to pay. The term over which you want to advertise is infinitely negotiable, too - from a single day to several years. It's versatile and cheap enough to even stick up "Happy Birthday" notes for loved ones.
My experience with Project Wonderful has been... well, wonderful. I increased the readership to my webcomic a few hundred times over with an investment of five bucks, and the return built up on that traffic is getting me ten times as much as Google AdSense. Since the adverts are not context-sensitive, they will run quite happily alongside AdSense ads with no TOS violations. And there's no click fraud to worry about - woo!
There are plenty of slots available on both JAMMAForever and Culture Shock, so I'm sure there'll be at least one slot that's still free for at least the next couple of weeks. To submit your advert, simply click on the part below each grouping of advertisements, stating "Your ad here, right now: $0.00". Adverts have to be approved by me, but I'll approve just about anything that isn't clearly a sleazy marketing trap or pyramid scheme.
Have fun - and if anyone else on this forum has tried Project Wonderful, please let me know how you get on.
