To maintain our independence besides generous donations, we came to allow advertisements on our page. There will be different types of advertising surfaces. The surfaces will be separated in both local and national advertisements. The local ones will be published from merchants in your region. It’s going to be cheap, so even smaller businesses will be able to afford them.
Merchants can directly reach their target group. This way the local retail structure is reinforced. The ads will be stationary, but not personalised. We won’t track any of your points of interests and won’t give any personal data to our advertisers.
Of course watching the advertisements will be voluntary. Your Adblockers will keep your page free from any ads. For all of you who are not interested in advertisements but still want to support their favourite authors or the page, there will be the opportunity to donate smaller or bigger sums.
Your content. Your profit.
We believe, you as users (authors, journalists, blogger, writer, …) also have a right on the advertising revenues. That’s why every verified author gets 50% of the local advertising revenue on his articles. From your first viewer, we will collect your money and pay it to you starting from 10€. The national and international advertisement revenues will be used for projects and authors from conflict areas or other regions, that don’t have any ads and who wouldn’t be able to keep their work up otherwise.
