Just an update on the news I posted a couple weeks ago...
Firstly thanks to everyone for their suggestions.. and I was surprised at the number of people who said have more ads, have a donate/subscribe function... both of which I have done.
Secondly.... I have lost my "day job"... but I am happy to say that I will be able to continue running the site myself due to implementing the suggestions above.
Banner ads at the top and bottom
Inline text ads which change words into links/ads
Survey on acapellas, instrumentals, samples e.t.c. forums
I know the survey feature is probably the most annoying thing... but all you need to do is 1 a week... most of the revenue is coming from the surveys so I probably won't be removing them.. sorry!
If the ads are annoying you that much... you can become a supporter which will remove the surveys, banners, and inline text ads.. and give you other benefits which are listed on the page.
For those who can't become a supporter you just need to contribute/post to the site... this post mentions users that don't see ads and how to get there.
Or just put with them! what would you rather, a site with ads or no site at all?
Another thing I've done is... I've started working on Free Acapellas & Acapella Downloads again and uploaded almost 400 acapellas to it so far.. newer acapellas will be put up when I've got all the older ones done... I will possibly be launching an instrumental version of that site also.
Thanks for eveyones support!
Oh and if anyone has any website, php, search engine marketing, e.t.c. work available send it my way and I'll give you a good deal... got plenty of free time now lol
Oh and thanks to other website owners who contacted me offering to help out, I'll probably be in touch with you's to work together somehow when I get everything sorted out here.
EDIT: I've updated the code again so that if you more than a certain number of talent points you get access without having to do a survey...
