What a Ridley Report ad purchase gets you:
1) I build an ad and a "blip" for you. Generally the blip airs at the start of the vid, the full ad at the end.
2) I link to your URL
at the beginning of my video descrip.
3) Ad keeps running 'till it gets the views you paid for.
4) If it gets more views than you agreed to pay for...the extras are free.What it costs:
Until further notice orders initiated after August 7, 2014 run 3.5 cents per first-week hit
.... In other words 100 bucks would require me to get you a total of at least 3,500 first-week views on the ad. If you want to commission a smaller run than that, you can. But the price per first-week view goes up to five cents. So most people get 100 bucks worth or more.
Unexpected extra hits are free. Hits that occur on your ad after that video's first week on the air are free. So you can't accidentally get committed to charges beyond what you agreed to.
Example: Say you buy a $100 ad run
(with the discount, that costs you 3 cents a hit). So I owe you 3,500 first-week hits
on your ad during that run . Say your ad airs three times. The first two airings each get 500 views during their first week on the air; the third airing gets 3,000. That's a total of 4,000 first-week hits even though I only owed you 3,500. That means I overshot the total by about 500 Those ~500 views become a minor free bonus for you, if I overshoot. The run then completes, but of course you keep getting free hits for as long as the video's up. Years, usually...though of course vids on occasion get censored or removed.
Sometimes I make live type ads, etc., quick & dirty in the field. These will sometimes be missing some element like your written URL. These and ads with known errors will be discounted, usually half price.
Most folks order a set dollar amount worth of ads. The most common purchase is $100 or alternate-currency equivalent. I accept Bitcoin and hundreds of the alcoins. Long as they're traded on Cryptsy or BTC-e...that should work. Caveats
The quality of the ad, and the number of versions, tends to be proportionate to your expenditure. The less expensive your ad run, the less time I'll put into the ad and the less chance I'll make a second version of it. I'm not usually able to check the number of hits at precisely the one-week mark, so some degree of estimating is required. It will benefit you sometimes, me sometimes. Fortunately, most YouTube hits tend to occur during the first few days so it's easy to achieve pretty accurate estimates. Usually within about a month after the run completes I will have all my raw stats collected on your run and can send them to you...but an ad run of $100, for instance, will normally take a couple months to complete. So you probably wont hear from me for a few months after I've notified you of the first airing. You can always ask me to run you more frequently than usual, for instance if your ad is about an event coming up in just a few weeks. Questions for Advertisers
Answering the questions below will let me make an ad more suited to your needs:
What do you want to advertise and how?
On a scale of 1 to 10 how weird/normal would you want the ads to be? (1 is Jim Kerry, 10 is Mike Wallace).
How much would you want your first ad run to be?
What's the exact URL you'd want me to plug?
Any thoughts what the message should be?
Any time frame of importance to you?
Do you have any images or vid you like to send me which I can use in the ad? You'll need to be the one who shot it or will need to have rights to it.
And...what is thy bidding?
