support LD4all
PostPosted: Tue 29 Apr, 2003  Reply with quote

Hello everybody,

Since a few weeks there is a new button on the homepage. It is marked "support". I want to bring it under your attention since I have a feeling everybody jumps directly to the forum without looking at the homepage anymore smile

As you all know, I have put a lot of hard work into LD4all. I have always wanted it to be a non profit site. So far it has worked well. But still, it costs me money to keep it up and running. And I have a wishlist too - but no money to make it happen. As it is, I am very glad and grateful for all the help I get - and have received in the past - from everybody.

In the years LD4all exists I have had offers from ppl to donate me money. But It wasn't technically possible for me to accept that. Now it is. I have opened a PayPal account so everybody who wishes LD4all a warm heart (Dutch proverb - don't know the english translation) can express their appreciation by donating something.

With your help LD4all can improve and expand even more. Thank you for your support smile

Hmm, I haven´t got a credit card...

But, how many money does one get for a click on some banner? I wouldn´t mind clicking on it every once in a while, if this is a help

Hmm, yes perhaps advertaising? I don't have a credit card either, im only 16, if I had one I wouldn't hesitate to give some moola. There is over 1000 people in the forum, im sure some sort of company may want to sponsor, even though people don't like add's, but if it helps LD4all, then why not?

How about adding banner in the main page EXCEPT the forum? It'll slow down some people's downloading time if the banner is added and I really hate banner/ADs, unless it's revelant. Just a suggestion

Hmm, yes, that´s right.The amazon banner is ok, at least it adverts dream books, but I wouldn´t like some stupid ones in here either.
Perhaps something like a small "banner section" that you can reach under "support"?
Or, even better, no banners, just links, so you can load the site quickly, hit one the links and then go to the forum.

Got another idea:

Is it possible to open two URLs with one "link"? You could set up a blank page, so it is really fast to load, with a link that goes to the main page of the forum and to some advertiser at once.
Then everyone who likes can set this as his bookmark, instead of the forum page, and with one click he goes to your forum and at the same time donates a small amount of money.
Of course it should be voluntary, but I think many people in here would do that.

I'm glad to see something start like this. Maybe LD4all.com will have it's own domain and webspace one day. ^^ Opening a paypal account is very smart, It makes it very quick and easy for visitors to donate. Any visitors with a pre-exisiting Paypal account can send money with just a few clicks.

The paypal registration process is very simple and it's only 1 small page to fill out. I'm not sure if you need a credit card, I think you can use your bank/checking account # too. You can take a look at the registration page HERE.

An "advertising section" seems to be a good idea too. I'm sure pasQuale is not going to litter her beautiful site with banners or pop-up ads. The idea about a special "advertising/donation" page sounds like a good idea though! As long as the ads are a "pay per click" type program.

BTW, Q? Do you recieve royalties when we click the amazon banner? Or must we actually purchase something?

unfortunately i cannot offer a donation for several reasons.

One being i can't use paypal hmm i don't use credit cards, and you can't use chequing accounts outside of USA/Canada (or that's how it was last time i tried.)

though if that situation changes smile

Thanks everybody for all the ideas and support. wiske

The prob with banners is that I don't know any who pay you per click. Only when you actually purchase something on their site. Also, *IF* i would chose to add some banner, i want it having to do with the site and not some stupid casino or make money fast banner or something.

But it is indeed an idea to make a support page with things on you can click on which do generate money. So i keep that one in mind. Also, if you know of some company who offers pay-per-click banners on their site, i'd like to know about that.

You actually have to purchase something. You don't have to purchase the books mentioned on the site, as long as you go to amazon via one of the links on ld4all I'll get a tiny commission on your purchase at amazon.

Yep, Amazon looks where the visitor came from. If it came from here, I'll get the commission. Doesn't matter what you buy smile So you can even buy a DVD or toys or whatever they sell on amazon wiske

prehaps you can create an Amazon link for people to add to their desktop. Then they could use it to enter Amazon.

I think you could use this link:

[Q-edit: edited the url to the correct one] Support LD4all - Buy from Amazon.com here [/Q-edit]

Then ask people to click and drag this link onto their desktop, and use this link when entering Amazon.

I'm not sure which URL to use, the above example might work just fine. However, I think Q should have a more appropriate one for this purpose. It might look something like amazon.com/affilate/throughthemirror

good idea, i'll change your link, this one won't work for me smile

Support LD4all - Buy from Amazon.com here

So if you drag this one on your desktop as Dream Addict suggested, i'm most grateful smile

You can always click on the books section on the site or on the banner on the forum to go to amazon.com too.

As far as I know i only get commission from amazon.com.
amazon.de, .fr, .uk, are separate shops. I would have to become an associate there too (like i'm now for amazon.com) for me to get the commission i get with amazon.com. I don't know if amazon.de has the same system as .com.

thanks for your thoughtfulness smile
