Default Amiga.org 2012 Business Ads

We are launching a new Ad service on Amiga.org in 2012 called Business Ads.

These are Amiga / MorphOS / AROS specific banner Ads that must be approved ahead of time and run quarterly. Ads that are not related to the audience of Amiga.org will be rejected. For example an Ad from AmigaKit would probably be accepted. An Ad advertising Windows would be rejected as it's not relevant to the site. Retro remakes of famous Amiga games will be accepted. For example the game Fortis that's available for MorphOS, Mac OS X and iPhone would be accepted. Pinball Dreams HD for iPad would even be accepted since it's a famous Amiga game remake. Only a limited selection of Ads will available, 2-3 at the most. We have seen how other sites have done Ads with lots of links not related to Amiga and are not interested in that type of solution on this site. Amiga.org will not be wrapped in advertising, that makes a site look amateur and cluttered. Amiga.org members have asked for more information about products they are interested in and this will be the solution.

Ads will run for three months at a time and cost $1000 in advance. Amiga.org gets about 100 Gigabyte of web traffic per month and is a great place to advertise if you want to reach Amiga, MorphOS & AROS customers. If you are a vendor that sells relevant products for this market and can't afford our quarterly Ads then contact us at the link below with your proposal. Ads are sold on a first come first served bases so when Ad space runs out it will be out for all quarter (three months). Please keep in mind that Ads must be approved and interesting to our members. Money will not be accepted for boring products or unrelated products.

Contact

Aren't unique visits from non spider ips more relevant than data transferred ?

Are there really any amiga related businesses that could afford such a price - I very much doubt anyone could make back even half of the advertising amount from the traffic this site receives.

Hi,
@buzz,

Look how well it has worked for Amigakit, they already have one sale on the new X1000,
see it really works.

@Transition,

They did advertise it here didn't they, they did right. Why the strange silence.

True about adblock, sometimes you forget that ads exists. Are they active now?

You would think for that amount of cash they could make them inconspicuous and avoid the blocking...?

Of course you can use those in the future if you want. However since the Ads will only be for Amiga/MorphOS/AROS goods you might just miss out on something you want to buy.

probably Amigakit would be the only one (with the current recession, i don't see anybody else). I can only hope to be wrong! :-)

If it's going to increase revenue for the site and in turn keep it alive then all good IMO. Running sites this size aint exactly cheap. So long as we don't start seeing Amiga branded too picks been advertised then I cant see there been an issue.

@Framiga
Lets not forget that CUSA supposedly has millions for advertising. So they will no doubt want in on this.

No Amiga tooth picks we promise. But do you mind one or two of these?

actually it is cheap to run a low bandwidth site like this.

(100gb is not a lot).

advertisers would want to know visitor levels though and perhaps pay based on how many view the advert.

$333 a month is a lot of money otherwise.

considering Amigaworld.net only charges 300 a year it does seem a tad to high to be asking of such a small market.

Here is a primark teapot.. yours for a $1000. offers accepted.

It can still help to lower the "asking" price to get people interested
