Tell me the great stories of the future of making money on the internet. I wish to hear them all.
popup console hell
It will never get better only worse.
Come up with an original idea and sell your own product
gfa ha ha
Unforunately though i don’t agree that the advertising industry will improve to the point where people will be able to maintain their site with ad revenue, let alone make a profit.
I agree that the media has blown things way out of proportion, and that is probabaly to our advantage since less people will want to get in on the game.
My point is that webmasters should focus more on making money from other sources besides advertising instead of needing advertising to survive. This is part of the reason publishers have little/no leverage
right now in negotiating rates with ad networks. They get an email saying “your cpm will be lowered to 10 cents muahaha”, and the publisher has to accept because they have bills to pay.
For some sites selling their own product or providing a service just will never work. I realize that. In my opinion those sites are
doomed to fail or at the most break even(though i reserve the right to change my mind about this guahaha).
I shall be ready to fight the evils
of net advertising. They are everywhere,
and only those who are true of heart will be able to defeat them. guahaha guahahahaha
yes some are making a profit now, and many of those are intense one man operations and also kids who don’t need to worry about the real cost of living.
I also think we haven’t seen the worst of things yet. I don’t think the market will “turn” as you say. CPM isn’t going to make a comeback. Most people i’m aware of are
just surviving right now hoping it will end
The companies which are doing well are sites with little/no content bandwidth and pages saturated with ads. This will not last
because the surfers will get too used to being bombarded with junk with all these fake portals and popups, uncloseable windows etc.
It will take a while before advertisers realize they aren’t getting the results they wanted. Many companies are still blowing all their money on ads in a last effort to try to save their dot com.
Sure some people will still make money through advertising alone, but a useful site doing so will/is the exception not the rule
then again sending junk email to people’s mailboxes still makes money so you never know
i am still waiting to hear the great stories.
am i going to be the only one battling evil
or do i have allies muahaha.
I believe advertising will survive, but only
if your site is true of heart, not a page full of cheap ploys to get people to click.
Sure it will work now, but what about when
more aol soccer moms become more web savvy
and realize you are tricking them into using some fake portal.
One way to get the one up on them is to make a message board with fake messages and when people try to post, you just send them to CHTF.
“all they are gonna do is suck your bandwidth” muahahaha
You’ve got to stay ahead of those surfers
they will do anything to ruin it for us
how is that for a great story guahahaha
was in fact mocking to some degree the current state of advertising on the net
1.surfer finds way to ignore painfully annoying ad
2.publisher finds way to trick visitor into viewing painfully annoying ad
3. surfer, just like the computer joshua from the movie “wargames” starring matthew broderick and dabney coleman learns and
does not click a second time
4.publisher must find new horrible way to force people to view unappealing ads
or take the high road and sell something they would actually buy themselves
Yes, make no mistake i am hear to fight evil.
From what i read, you are a brave fighter of evil as well.
I wish you luck in this battle as it seems you are true of heart
developing a product that has few competitors is the way to bliss.
I have viewed many threads searching through the geekvillage posts, and yes i have seen the great stories.
I have been to the site http://www.net-ads.com many times.
I find it to be a valuable resource since you seem to have access to news that others do not. Though it does not appear to address the need to fight evil.
I believe one of the great stories of the future of internet advertising is the selling of products and branding, and making peace with the surfer.
Right now it seems advertisers are at war with the surfers. I do not believe that you wish to buy from someone you are at war with.
on the other hand as i said before, people
hate junk mail in their mailbox(i mean real junk mail not email) yet people have been making money with those schemes for years,
perhaps taking advantage of the less savvy
much the way net advertising does now
if anybody understands what i mean.
Yes yes this is what i have been saying.
These are the great stories.
I just do not think sites should rely solely on advertising to make money. Doing this they have no power against the evils of the world.
Advertising should only supplement other forms of income such as a product or service which you provide. The net became so profitable that people just threw money everywhere and the old idea of having to have a product no longer applied.
but the ghost of alladvantage has spoken to me in a dream. i remember what he says
clear as day
“the rules have changed….”
