Website Shetoldme.com now charging for publishing
Shetoldme.com is a site that many writers, photographers and other Internet users employ to publish their links in order to get more traffic. Not only does the poster/user of the site get more exposure for traffic but a 100% revenue of the adverts that show along their content.
Is using Shetoldme.com working for you?
Do you think it is worht paying $5 a month or $12 a year to be able to publish links on this site?
The site now charges a premium membership of $5 per month or $12 per year. Being new to the site (I joined in July 2011) and experiencing this change in terms, I am still at the stage where I cannot give a correct evaluation as to whether or not this is worth it. In the interest of assisting others thinking about adding Shetoldme.com to their link wheel, it would be greatly appreciated if current users with premium memberships or those who have used the site for long period could give an indication of what they think through the poll below.
Pros of the site
- It seems to be very popular with content producers and therefore should be good for content promotion
- -The mere fact that they are charging for their services indicates that they have enough numbers and must be doing well.
Cons of the site Shetoldme.com
-Personally I find the Photoshop fails totally annoying now. They used to be fun at first but seem to be run off the mill now.
-Much as charging for their services is a much needed step to take for a site that pays 100% of Ad revenue to its users, it must be understood that it is not only the site Shetoldme.com that makes things happen, it is its users as well. I would have seen a revenue sharing system as the way to go, as there is no guarantee to the user recovering their monthly or yearly fee from the ad revenue. I think if there is revenue sharing then the site is obliged to promote itself more so that it secures its share of Ad revenue.
With the current standing, they can just sit back and watch the subscriptions come in. This puts the site in danger of becoming redundant since the focus of marketing it is not directly related to advert revenue.
I would like to think that if a site has a huge following, it is up to them to market their advertising space and promote their site so that their advertising revenue grows rather than charge the very people who bring in the business. However-who am I to blow against the wind?
