Advertiser Pilot

Here at Kicktraq, we're growing by leaps and bounds! In an effort to keep bringing you the features you've come to know and love, and to keep up with the growing popularity, we're looking to add a limited amount of topical advertisements to certain parts of our site.

To our users:
We value your experience on Kicktraq, and in an effort to maintain that quality experience, we're limiting advertising ONLY to Kickstarter projects and we promise we won't ever allow blinky-flashy-obnoxious-animated ads. Ever. We'd rather stab ourselves in the eyes with rusty forks.

To project owners:
So, now that you know what we're looking for, let's talk about what we want to do for you. We know most of you wouldn't be on Kickstarter if you had the money to spend on expensive advertising campaigns, and we want to give you the opportunity to increase your exposure in the categories that matter most to you. This is why we are making the decision to offer both low-cost advertising options for longer time periods in a general rotation as well as more expensive and limited front-page ads. Our goal is to make advertising accessible for anyone so you can get the most out of every single advertising dollar.

We want to empower you to see what sort of exposure you receive for your money, so we're going to develop an entire metrics console just for your advertisements.

So, are you ready to rock?

Slots are going to be limited, so let's cover what you're signing up for:



1. Opportunity of a 14-day general rotation for only $10/day USD.

(If you are looking for more time, put your additional details in the "Why do you want to participate?" question to the right.)

2. Be a tester for the back-end advertising analytics beta.

3. Your advertisement must be for a Kickstarter project & must link to a kickstarter.com URL.

4. Your advertisement must adhere to a strict "no animations" policy, or we break out the rusty forks.

Like us, if you're a data junkie, these numbers may be useful in choosing whether you wish to participate.

If you are looking for more context-specific metrics, currently we don't have a robust system to obtain them. Part of the development of this pilot will be compiling them, so we'll be able to give them to you soon.
