Pretty simple answer. We love agrimarketing and want to make AgriMarketing Pros a very credible source of news and information about our profession. After all, that’s why we call ourselves agrimarketing professionals, right? Besides, don’t you get more than enough advertising from a gazillion other websites?
But this doesn’t mean you can’t help out financially. More on this in a moment.
Although we don’t accept advertising I am open to a “sponsorship” of a series of reports on a particular topic. Especially if that topic is a trip I’d like to take to write about a meeting like my upcoming IFAJ Congress trip to Thun, Switzerland. Hint, hint. A sponsorship won’t include website advertising though. I would provide a clear reference to the sponsorhip, it’s purpose (help with expenses) and a tagline in the reports.
Not accepting advertising doesn’t mean we’re independently wealthy though. We have expenses like hosting, domain registration, software, hardware, promotion (our booth at the NAMA convention) and I want to have some fun contests too!
As we’ve received a growing amount of material to look through I’ve been asked if we “charge” to post stories or releases. We don’t and don’t intend to. However you can:
Yes, you can donate. You decide how much. Any amount will help us continue and develop the only blog devoted to the business of agrimarketing. Your donation will be greatly appreciated too. In fact, send us a donation and I’ll send you an email telling you so. Your donation will be used to help cover the expenses I listed above.
If you don’t want to make a donation now you can always do so with the “Donate” button in the “About ZimmComm” sidebar.
Thanks for your consideration and keep reading AgriMarketing Pros. Spread the word!
