As we're devoting more and more resources to the forum to make various updates, improvements, and just day to day tasks, I need to put ads on various places on the site. We have some sponsors paying for ad spaces and we want to make sure that they're getting their money's worth, so basically we'll have to place ads in places that are 1. Noticeable and 2. Not disturbing. And most importantly, I would like to place them in places where people would see the message and actaully click on some of them.
Most of the sites on the web has ads integrated around their contents to maximize the exposure. I know that a lot of you are going to get turned off by this but hey, someone's gotta pay the bills right? The ads that we will have on our site will be value added ads, which means I will do my best to keep the contents of the ads relevant to our users so it will provide some sort of information that will be valuable to our users and things that are relevant to our site contents.
Anyhow, there are a lot of spaces on ClubWRX.net that would fit different advertisements. As far as banner and text ads (such as Google ads) goes, what are some places where you would like to see them and not totally ignore them?
Help me out guys. ClubWRX.net has forgone a lot of advertising opportunities such as the intellitext to improve the experience of our users. Nearly all of the websites on the internet rely on banner ad revenues which keeps them going.
Lastly, would you guys pay a premium for a banner-free version of the site? If so, how much are you willing to pay on a monthly basis for this option?
