We used to have "Sponsors." We still do, but recreating that aspect of the site had to take a back seat. If you are interested in being a TSN Sponsor (we’re calling them "Partners" today), drop us a line to partners@TravelSavvyNews.com. Until we finalize what our new Partnership program will look like, we will have to do it the "hard way."
As you might suspect, this new version will be supporting banner advertising. "Good will" and selflessness are all well and good - but, like granny used to say: it don’t pay the rent!
Unlike a lot of "obnoxious" websites, though, we are not going to make advertising the main focus of TSN. It will be there and if you find something that looks interesting - click the advertisers link! We know for a fact that you’ll make their day and we won’t look bad either, especially considering the "dirt cheap" rates we will be charging.
Don’t hold us to this, but right now we are looking at a basic entry-level rate of something like $50 for 1,000 impressions for a banner ad.
If you know anything about banner advertising on the Internet, you are probably thinking $50/1,000 impressions is a typo.
Most banner ads start at $650 per 1,000 impressions (if you can find a service that inexpensive) anywhere else...
Along the lines, we will also be resurrecting the archives of the old TSN, but only those articles that don’t represent advertising. The specials and other offers are obsolete and there is really no point in putting them into the current mix. This will be happening on a "time available" basis (hah!) and will not necessarily correspond to our monthly publication date (the 1st of each month).
What else? At this point, your guess is as good as ours! Things are proceeding, but it takes time to iron out the details and make an idea into reality.
We don’t know where you are going, but we are dedicated to two things:
- Something different to see when you get "there"
- Having fun while you are there
Check back every month - you never know what you might find...
