Hey @JustMe, thanks for the comment.
We updated to document to make clear that this isn’t an exclusive partnership and to amend the amount of SMART we’re asking for in the proposal.
We’re not asking for full support or an exclusive partnership. We’re asking SmartCash for less than half of our operating expenses plus some SMART to sponsor (buy advertising) for high-performing content with SmartCash branding/ads.
If you are referencing Ben Swann’s Reality Check proposal, it’s for 30 million (not 300 million) total impressions over 6 months – 5 million impressions per month for $59,334 a month. Our proposal is offering a conservative estimate of 6 million impression per month for $7,000. So our proposal is actually more cost-effective than Ben Swann’s (love him by the way), which was just approved. On your point about returning and new visitors to our website, in June, we had 1.9 million page views from 1.3 million visitors. 1.1 million of those were new visitors. So while we do have a large core audience of repeated users, the majority are fresh eyes seeing our content. (analytics screenshot added to Google document)
I understand your concern with cross-posted content, and we do occasionally aggregate Derrick and others’ work published on Ben Swann’s site, however our proposal will be used for creating original content which will carry SmartCash branding/ads.
I hope this clears up your concerns!
Also, our proposal is now live and can be voted on. If you think this proposal can be mutually beneficial for Anti-Media and SmartCash, please vote yes: https://vote.smartcash.cc/Proposal/Details/SmartCash-Sponsorship-of-Anti-Media
