For visitors who come directly to [chrisbrogan.com], you might notice that I’ve posted some advertisements. I’ve accepted a contract from Federated Media to place select ads on my site for products and/or services that might be of interest to you. If you swing by the site, you’ll notice them and maybe sometimes find the product or service interesting. If not, then not. There are tiny Google Adsense ads at the bottom of the RSS subscription, too.
I’ve worked on a Federated Media project, American Express OPEN Forum for a while now, writing articles for the small business world. This is an extension of that relationship.
Why Take Ads?
I have ads so I can make money. That’s easy to answer. Why work with Federated Media? I like John Battelle and I like what I know about the company and I found their inventory relevant to the people who come here.
But Ads are Icky
No. Intrusive ads are icky. Ads that promote something you don’t like are icky. Ads are how we come to be aware of something. That’s all. It’s how they’re implemented that often bugs us. For instance, I’m not anxious to have any ads that block what you’re reading. And, if you wanted to never see the sidebar ads, you could subscribe to my site via email. THAT makes them invisible to you.

So, Ads It Is
The content remains the same. The ideas are all mine. I will never allow for an editorial conflict. If I wrote it, it was my words and I mean it.
I understand if you have an aversion to ads. I’ll do my best to keep you happy enough not to care.
