Advertising on phonelosers.org

Phonelosers.org has existed since 1997. There are days worth of original reading material on our site and even more days of sound and video files to listen to and watch. We receive thousands of page views per day and our site is occasionally featured on popular sites like Fark, collegehumor.com and many others which usually results in 25,000 or more page views per day. We’re ready to sell out and cash in our our popularity by offering advertising on our site.


Static text link ad in a post – $10 per post: When you visit the main page of phonelosers.org, the page is full of “posts” which are updates related to the Phone Losers of America, the Snow Plow Show podcast, and other things that we find interesting. We can include your text link with a description (no more than a small paragraph) at the bottom of any update or at the bottom of our next update. We will never accept more than 1 ad for a single update, so it will only be your ad. We may choose to include text before your ad that indicates that it’s a sponsored message if it’s not obvious enough for the readers. Your ad will remain in the post for at least a year, but more likely it will be there forever.

FAQ

How do I buy an ad? If you’re a PayPal user, click on the appropriate grey box/button thing up there. If the buttons don’t work for you, you can PayPal money directly to [email protected].

PayPal are a bunch of Nazis. Can I pay you some other way? Sure! You can pay with a check or money order via U.S. mail to Brad Carter, PO Box 465, Albany, OR, 97321. If you’d like to pay with Google Wallet or Amazon or other payment options, just ask.

Do you accept porn or gambling ads? Definitely not porn and probably not gambling or ads that seem like a huge pyramid scheme. None of those triangle schemes either. I won’t accept flash or javascript ads. I might even deny your animated GIF ad because it blinks too much.

Do you offer monthly ad rates? Nope, the minimum is 6 months. The reason for this is that I’m lazy and don’t feel like updating ads that often.

Your FAQ doesn’t cover my question! What do I do? I’m freaking out here, man… If you have any questions about advertising, send them to [email protected].
