Iâ€™ve been thinking for quite a while now as to whether or not I should advertise on SmartCanucks.ca. Iâ€™m proud of SmartCanuck.caâ€™s clean elegant feeling that is unscarred by the ugly ads that have become a common seen on the Internet. At the same time, SmartCanucks.caâ€™s survival and success will require some financing.
After a lot of thought I decided to add a few ads but in return I’ll make things a little bit more interesting for SmartCanucks.ca’s contributors and visitors! Iâ€™ll split my ads revenue with you 🙂
– 50% will be shared amongst the 3 founders of SmartCanucks.ca.
– 25% will be shared amongst SmartCanucks.caâ€™s contributors. Right now we have 3 contributors: Curiosity, nolookingca and Thilipan.
– 25% will go to SmartCanucks.ca (regular) visitors! I havenâ€™t decided how… maybe through a contest or by rewarding the person with most comments, or other bloggers who posted about SmartCanucks.ca likeÂ David, John and Sara.
So basically every month, when I get a check from advertising Iâ€™ll post the amount here on SmartCanucks.ca andÂ we’ll go on from there.Â I donâ€™t expect to make a lot of money out of advertising, at least not at this stage. However as SmartCanucks.ca grows the check values should increase. If in 5 years time Iâ€™m making $0 or $1000 per month, the 50/25/25 ratio will not change.
What do you think of this idea? Should I remove or leave the ads?
