There are three ways to advertise on ROADIE.NET. One is free (links) and the other two are for a fee (banners & mass email).
Anyone related to our business can add a link to their website in the ROADIE RECOMMENDED section. If you have a logo you can email the file to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will add it to your link.
Effective Feb 1, 2006… the only banners allowed in the front page rotation are PAID ads. These can be set up in one of two ways.
Referral linked banners: Many banners pay ROADIE.NET based on actual sales of products or services. When a member clicks through to the advertiser and makes a purchase, ROADIE.NET is compensated. Examples of this are Amazon.com and Carbonite.com.
Traffic based banners: These banners are charged a fee based on the number of “clicks through” to the advertiser’s site. A deposit is paid in advance and then replenished as needed to keep the banner active. All banners randomly rotate every time someone enters or refreshes the front page of roadie.net.
Current banner fee schedule (8/1/2007)
Deposit required – $100 US
Fee per “click through”
50 cents per click with a cap of $25 per month (50 clicks per month). Any additional clicks in a given month would be free.
When the $100 is nearly depleted, we would invoice you for the next few months. You can cancel at anytime.
A typical banner ad gets about 25 clicks a month but creates about 20,000 “impressions” of your banner every month. There are typically 20-25 banners running in rotation at any time. Banner ads need to be EXACTLY 468 px W by 60 px H.
Email email@example.com to get started.
The fee for a mass email will be determined by the total number of “Opt In” members. The fee will be 8 cents per opt in member (with over 10,000 members currently opted in that’s a minimum total fee of $800)
