This year, AdPulp.com moved away from being an ad-supported site. The site currently carries no ads at all. We are now 100% publisher supported.
We no longer take paid posts, although the offer is there to do so literally every day. And we no longer place banners or text ads on the site. I pay for the web hosting and I give my time to this project, which is now in its 13th year.
The big news that I’d like to share today is our decision to adopt Inkl’s micropayments platform for independent journalists and bloggers. From here on, our posts will be tip-enabled or placed behind a pay gate.
This is our migration to a reader-supported model. Given that I’m willing to share the load with you, I hope you will be willing to toss a few coins in the AdPulp fountain.
Please sign up now.
Your new Inkl subscription will provide access to some of the world’s best newspapers, plus a growing number of sites from independent journalists and industry sites like AdPulp.
AdPulp is a beta tester of the InklPay platform, and if you are a fan of this site, I’d like to personally ask you to sign up for Inkl’s new subscription service. It will benefit us to some degree, but it’s much bigger than that. I believe Inkl is offering precisely what publishers need right now.
No one is going to subscribe to dozens of newspapers or indie journals—it’s too damn expensive. And the newspapers themselves have failed to roll out a “pay as you go” model, which leaves this massive opportunity unanswered. Until now. Now, publishers can ask readers to help support their efforts directly with a simple nod and a click. Will it work here? Let’s find out.
