I'd like to try a few additional ways to market our favorite manufacturers here so I'm posting this to get your response on how we do it better, what you like and don't like about ads and why we need ads? Here is what I am finding. Banners produce less click compared to links, but I do love how they add colour and keep me attached to gear in a visual way. They do take up space, more bandwidth and we become blind to the flashing, but I'm not bothered by them like the way we have them rotating here. A banner can expose 25 thousand times in a month with almost no clicks. Text ads on the other hand, wow! How many of us visit the manufactures website we use? Out of site, out of mind. Its a two way road. We must support the deserving, especially the companies we invest in. Especially if we expect continued advancement in our products of choice. That being said, I've done test and it appears text ads produce astonishing results compared to banners. I do realize these ads can be annoying. But, wow... they are bar none the best way to show people where to look. People visit these links so I say, thank you, please don't stop! I need the revenue, the manufacturers need the support and revenue and just maybe, you might discover something new by checking out links I post. We don't support unrelated products just to make make a buck here. These spots are reserved for the good guys. I take pride in being able to keep this place junk free. Please visit these links from time to time and recognize, ads are here for a reason. From all of us, thank you.
