How do I sponsor a category?

To Sponsor a category now, go to the sponsorship sign-up page. There, select the category you'd like to sponsor, and the blurb you'd like to appear with your thank-you link. (Like "Sponsored by AcmeWebs Inc., bringing you the goofiest gadgets on the web")

Is this the same as selling ads?

Well, yes, sort of. We believe that this is a somewhat friendlier approach than sticking a bunch of ads in the sidebar, and we want to get a feel for the community's response.

So, do you guarantee clicks? Pagerank Increase? Etc.

No, Our intention is to solicit sponsorships. Certainly this will result in some more visibility for the sponsor, but we do not intend to have a pay-per-click model or anything similar.

Are you a non-profit? Can I deduct my sponsorship?

No, we're not a non-profit organization at this time - we have all kinds of wishful thinking about the future of the directory, but right now we're just hoping to raise some funds to support future growth.

Will you take any amount of money to sponsor a category?

No, Would like to have at least some amount to cover the administration. A five dollar donation is nice, but doesnt' cover the time to set up the "thank you" link.

Sponsor Contribution Amount

It seems as if this may be a good idea. As long as you give users @ potential sponsors an idea as to how the money would be used, I don't think there would be much problem. I know that the project is in its early stages, but do you have any Sponsorship Contribution amounts in mind yet? darren n. smith /

Well, I'd use the money to cover my webhosting costs to start, then to pay a professional editor to maintain listing quality, then further develop the directory and other projects.
I'm thinking a minimum of $25 per year, per category. If I should end up with more than one sponsor for category, I think I would rotate them... --Aerik Sylvan 13:37, 18 Oct 2007 (PDT)

$25/yr seems reasonable, however I'd put a cap on number of sponsors per category per year (as in no more than 4) - I assume some categories will be much more popular than others... perhaps you can also offer more than one level of sponsorship. --Livluvlaf729 22:14, 23 Jan 2008 (PST)/
