Quotes From Previous Advertisers
Here are a few quotes from those who advertised with the Open Gaming Network:
- “D20pfsrd.com advertising keeps making me more money…” and “…every dollar I spend on those ads made me $6.84” and “There was another individual who came to me when he saw my Kickstarter was up and asked me to advertise with him. I did advertise with him once before and he charged a lot of money and it cost me: every dollar I spend on those ads it made me 21 cents. Where I am from we call that a “BAD investment”. So when he came around this time trying to get some money for his large ad network that he claimed would be helpful what do you think MY response? Just a simple “No thank you”. What you should be focusing on is getting ads up at D20pfsrd.com to make sure your Pathfinder kickstarter is successful.” Louis Porter Jr., Louis Porter Jr. Publishing
- “The D20PFSRD store has consistently improved by increasing sales and outperforming several storefronts. Their flexibility and engagement with the publishing community is a shining example.” Andreas Rönnqvist, Dreamscarred Press
- “Advertising with D20pfsrd was the best return on investment … [we] made almost a 900% return on our advertising deal with John.” Adam Meyers, Drop Dead Studios
- “The month that our banner was featured on d20pfsrd.com, we saw a drastic increase in sales and gained several months’ worth of new subscribers. I’ve explored dozens of ways to promote our products, both traditional and untraditional. Running a banner on the SRD has not only been one of the most successful and least expensive methods for us, it’s also one of the most accommodating. No fuss, quick response times, thorough answers – John and Debra are a pleasure to work with. I will definitely continue to buy space on d20pfsrd.com.” Reid Stewart, Dreadfox.
