A couple of weeks ago I was reading a post on David O’Neill’s blog concerning ‘missing the boat’ on the pixelad business. Still subscribed to the comments, I was amazed to read the case of one reply this morning.
“I purchased a “large ad” at an agreed rental of $5 per month. It was stated that the site, and ad’, would be maintained for at least 2 years.
My ad was recently removed and when I asked why I was informed I would have to pay $47 a month to have it put pack due to the fact that the owners had spend so much money marketing the sites.”
The site in question is Pixellance, which recently joined forces with RentPixelAds.com… Looks like a con job (no offence intended to the owner of the site – just my opinion). Take a read of the comment for yourself but its highly disappointing to see something like that in any service. As soon as the site gets any attention at all they jack up the prices? Supply and demand at work or just a ripoff?
Note : made a little edit to the original post, didn’t want to be offending anyone in general terms 🙂
