Everything for free
The services creatr.cc, templatr.cc, timashr.com, thememaker.cc and a few more of my services have been on line now for more or less 2 years and can be used by anyone free of charge. The oldest service, counter-service.de has even been up and running for almost 10 years now. Whenever i find the time and it`s possible, new features are added and faults removed.
Nevertheless very popular
All services, especially the Logo Generator and Template Generator are very popular with users and webmaster alike. Hardly a day passes without a new article being posted containing links and tips to my services online. I was surprised that even the Background Generator, which i have not been able to develop further and promote has been found, linked and used, and has been given a positive mention in varioust blogs.
I have not got the time
Unfortunatly i have not got as much time to take care of my “Babies” as i would like to, never mind having the time to realise new ideas i have on ” Online Generators “, Like most people on earth i have to earn my daily living so i can keep up with my bills.( And of course pay the bills that run up for these services.)
I have tried everything already
I have tried quiet a lot to cover the extra costs, like including advertisement. Unfortunatly it is not as easy as you may think. Advertising doesnt even cover the cost of one of my services. Maybe i could compensate this through more adverts, but i am trying to avoid advertismet all together. Which is better for all of you.
Hopeless situation!? Maybe not!?
The whole situation seemed hopeless, and therefore i’ve been having discusions on how it will be possible to continue offering a free service and developing more. Whereby they should not be drowned by adverts. If at all possible there should be no adverts at all. The use of the services should be kept free of charge in future too.
Everyone is a winner
And so the idea “Sponsor and win” was born. A system where everyone is a winner. Help me to help you and have the chance to win a prize in the prozess
With Sponsor and win all who wish can donate something and help support the services.
With these donations it should be possible to carry on developing and offering the services for free.
Like this, the services stay available for the user and new and better services will be added free of charge and advertisement free.
Each sponsor can enter with a link on the sponsor page
Different prizes will be raffled of amongst the active sponsors
Webmaster, who would like to back the services or action, can win also.
Amongst all of the webmasters who have sent active sponsors to us , a prize will be raffled of all so.
How exactly does it work?
Behind Sponsor and win is a pixel page. Here you can upload a picure file according to the size of the image and buy Pixels. The Image will then be displayed on the page with all the other sponsors. For each spot a title and internet adress can be added. Payment is made via PayPal. You can pay per PayPal with Creditcard or per bank transfer also.
Has’nt this been done before!?
Yes you are almost right, that was the MillionDollarHomepage. And yes the idea is not new. BUT!!! Unlike the others which have cloned the idea, you get something in return and have the chance to win a prize at Sponsor and Win. First and most important of all it is about keeping the services available, so that all Internet user can profit from using them.
What does it cost?
The pixelblocks will each be sold at 10×10 pixel. Each Pixesl kosts 0,10€. So a Block will cost 10€. Each Block will be displayed for at least 100 days. Each Pixel represents one raffle ticket. So the more Pixel you have, the more raffel tickets you have got. Every ticket has the chance of winning in more than one draw.
What can i win?
Amongst the aktive sponsors, prizes will be raffled off, the worth depending on the subtotal of tickets sold at the time.
Draws will take place when the subtotal has reached:
- 100€ – Prizes: 1 bread roll, 1 packet fruitgumms, 1 dummy
- 1000€- Prizes: 1 musik CD, 1 DVD, 1 Blueray The prizes will be originals, not self burnt
- 5000€ – Prizes: 1 Monitor, 1 Digital Camera, 1 xBox 360 Arcade
- 10000€ – Prizes: 1 TV, 1 Netbook, 1 Playstation 3
There will of course be more draws, but more to that later.
And the webmaster?
We have a refer system which registers what site the user has come from to Sponsor win. The active sponsers are alocatet to the webmaster this way. Whenever there is a draw for the sponsors, there will also be a reward for the webmaster. The webmaster wo’s sponsors have bought most pixels will receive the same prize as the sponsor who has won at the time.
Amongst the rest of the webmasters who have sent active sponsors a consolation prize will be raffled off.
What do i have to do as a Webmaster?
You HAVE to do nothing But, if you support the idea, then write about it on your site or your blog. Wherever you find suitable or possible advertise and place a link for this idea. The referer is the easy option and will be tracked automatically. This will work even if you link from a profile like MySpace or Facebook. The important part is that the user comes directly from your site on to http://sponsorandwin.com/
How else can you support Sponsor and Win?
Sure, there are other things where i could do with help, Anything which aids the cause is welcome. The only thing that springs to mind at the moment is, through the donation of prizes. Would’nt it be great if the prizes would be of high value, this would encourage more user to participate which would then again help all in the end.
