Colorado Springs, CO, United States, 2005/11/22 - PostNuke launched Pixels.PostNuke.com, a website to raise money for the Open Source CMS software project, using the latest craze sweeping the net, pixel advertising.
But unlike the hundreds of pixel advertising sites going online daily, the purpose of PostNuke's pixel page is to provide a unique, novel way for business and community users to support the free content management software project.
What are pixel ads?
In case you haven't heard about the newest fad in online advertising, a pixel ad allows you to purchase a space for an image, paying 'by-the-pixel', a link, and the alt. text tied to the image - unlike other banner or pay-per-click (PPC) advertising there is only a one time cost associated with a given duration that your pixel ad is visble. PostNuke guarantees visibility of purchased pixels for a duration of 2 years.
Buying pixels at PostNuke.com is a smart business move because it's inexpensive, you get results and you can demonstrate your support for the project. For a minimal one-time investment, a $100 square works out to 14 cents a day, which drives traffic to your site for the next 2 years. A prominent link to the Pixels.PostNuke.com page from the PostNuke.com home page will assure a constant stream of traffic and exposure of the pixels.postnuke.com page. As we grow your link will directly benefit – the more popular we get, the more traffic you'll get -- and you will directly benefit, without having to pay anything extra, from all the additional clicks.
Does it work?
The PostNuke pixel ads page will be promoted and linked directly from the PostNuke.com homepage so supporters can be assured of traffic, and it will be a great resource for anyone looking to work with companies who actively support the PostNuke project.
