Okay, I want to make this as simple as possible. And I want YOU to make money also, in fact, I want you to make as much as me.

Let’s lay down the facts, South DaCola is read by over 10,000 (individual) readers a day with up to 40,000 hits a day. It has traffic, and has advertising appeal.

The problem? I’m not a salesman. Sure I can sell a hamburger and a beer, but when it comes to something as touchy as politics, I couldn’t sell you a free toothpick.

So I am putting a challenge out there. You send me advertisers, I will give you a 50% commission. On top of that, I will do the design work and the leg work.

I have pretty slack terms, I will negotiate any advertiser’s rate and they don’t have to sign any contracts. You can advertise as long as you want. Don’t care. As long as you pay me via check, money-order or PayPal, we are good to go.

If you want to help me sell advertising for South DaCola, or are interested in advertising on one of Sioux Falls’ top read daily websites. Drop me a line, fb.art@sio.midco.net

    Time for dacola to grow. Lots of freelancers out there. Print & broadcast media that’s lost touch with regional news & interest. Certainly a model for this era but not Facebook for awhile. Use one of those mail order bride services. An oriental bride, now we’re talking Zooky.

    I had a ‘Russian’ friend a few years back who joked about starting a mail-order bride business. Good laughs (he wasn’t serious) But, hey, I will let anybody advertise, even Left-handed cigarette smokers from the hills.

    I don’t mind ads down the side of the screen, but please no pop up ads! However, when the ads are down the side of the screen, if there isn’t enough postings, people don’t scroll down far enough to see all of them. Perhaps you could somehow do a rotating or moving gif, or whatever they call those nowadays thing.

    Agree with Scott. No pop-ups.

    There wouldn’t be popups. Just what you see now. I may make the ads smaller.

    Just make it cheaper than what the Coffee News charges and it will win.

  7. What is that? I overheard two customers talking about the mag the other day.

    Coffee News is a charming single sheet 1960’s throwback which charges a fortune for ad space.

  9. Coffee News? Ugh

    I looked up the website. It’s just another version of Tid-Bits.

  11. Why not run Google Adsense on your pages? Lots of local ads run within the ad system.
