Promoted LinksJanuary 16, 2013 - Jake Bresnehan
When I first stated the Web Design Weekly newsletter, I was very anti-advertising. I have touched on that before. But as time has gone by, I have come to the conclusion that if the newsletter is going to continue, I have to explore ways to support the running costs and fund my time. I hope you can understand.
Late last week, I decided to start work on a new advertising feature – Promoted links.
The reason for incorporating promoted links into the weekly email is to give companies and individuals the opportunity to promote their amazing service or product at a more affordable rate with the possibility of also providing a higher click through rate.
The main difference between a normal advertisement and a promoted link is that the promoted links are almost identical to the existing main link, just branded with bold “promoted” text on the right hand side.
The cost of a promoted link is a one off $79.
With over 8000+ subscribers and increasing by an average 200 subscribers every week, it works out to be an amazing opportunity.
So if you have a great product or service and would like to support Web Design Weekly, please consider heading over to the advertising page and submitting your promoted link.
If you have any feedback, please don’t hesitate to drop me an email or leave a comment below.
