Background Image As Ad Space

Ian Schafer has figured out a way to monetize his Twitter feed.
He’s conducting an eBay auction, where the winning bidder will be allowed to co-opt the background on his Twitter page and turn it into ad space.

This one-month sponsorship includes replacing of the existing background image with the image(s) of your choice, as well as replacement of my handsome photo with another image of your choice (ie. brand logo).
I average about 8-10 outbound ‘tweets’ a day, and your brand would be represented in each.

The current bid is $405.
The amount paid by the winning bidder will go as a donation to The David Wright Foundation.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
