I'm contacting a small group of authors on Smack Jeeves to find out if you'd be interested in a small beta program we're hoping to launch called the Smack Jeeves Ad Revenue Sharing Beta.
We've recently begun working with a new advertising group, and if things go well (i.e. the ad $$ rates are good and we're able to track ad revenue on individual comics), it would mean this program would be a go. This program would allow you to place ad tags on your comic, provided by us, and allow you to earn money from the ads. The terms will be, tentatively, 70% to the comic author and 30% to Smack Jeeves, so for every $1 your comic earns through advertising you'd keep $0.70 and we'd keep $0.30.
Keep in mind, you're already free to place ads on your comic and keep 100% of the revenue. The benefit to this program is that, hopefully, we're able to provide higher rates than you may be able to achieve on your own, and simplify the process, and also help you out with ad placement.
This would very much be a beta, and #1 it's not ready yet and #2 when it is ready, we won't be able to provide on-demand revenue reporting right away. Initially, we need to determine if the program even has a chance of being successful before building those kind of tools, so reporting will be probably at the end of each month initially, and payments Net-45 (payment within 45 days after the end of the month in which the ad revenue was earned).
These are the requirements for your comic to be able to participate:
- No pornographic content whatsoever
- All IP including art, characters and story must be original or covered by fair use
- Your comic must be on the smackjeeves.com domain
- You're okay with being paid via PayPal (just a $1 fee would apply)
I've already pre-screened all of your comics and from what I can tell you're all eligible, but if I missed any of these, unfortunately your comic would not be eligible for the program.
Finally, and importantly, this is not public information, nor is it entirely official. I'm just gauging interest at this point, so keeping this program private for now would be appreciated.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you! Please let me know whether or not you'd be interested in participating."
To which I answered
Thank you for your offering, but no, of course i don`t want to participate.
Don`t take any offense, but this is nonsense. I, as almost every other supporter pay the donator or premium fee just to NOT have any Ads that bothers our readers.
What`s the point of paying the fee to not have ads and then put voluntarily ads so we can get money to keep on paying the fee to not have ads?
Eatatau is supported entirely by the fans through Patreon, the shop and the commissions you order, and so far I don`t want nor need ads thanks to you.
Thank you for your support, people. You make it worth the time and the effort.
On behalf of Worldwide Cancer Research I would like to thank you very much for your kind donation.
Over the years we have funded research to the tune of £186 million into any cancer type and have helped scientists find new ways to knock down prostate cancer, improve the diagnosis of rare childhood cancers, and contributed to some of the latest understanding into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of many different cancers.
But our scientists can only carry out research because amazing people like you are pounding tarmac, climbing mountains eating cake and doing all manner of incredible things for this one incredible cause. Your money helps us continue this vital work.
As you have probably noted, the amount of boobs in eatatau galleries is becoming... scarce at best. This is because a pair ofsome months ago I started working in an anime making japanese company, 5 days a week like 10 hours daily, so I`m having real trouble to keep up with Eatatau, patreon rewards, commissions, boobies and other proyects.
I already cancelled a pair of Pay per view comics I really wanted to do, as well as a new comic with the intriguing title "nazis Vs drows", but its still not enough, so I have to stop doing commissions for the time being.
The commissions already ordered (or in process of negotiation) will be done, but we are not accepting new ones for a while. Lets hope with this the boobiness of eatatau will became nice and round again.

-Sadly, we got some info concerning IP encryptors and cheating over two characters and because of that they were disqualified. Authors, please, warn your fans to not be too obvious when helping you, cause they are not doing you any favor, and it hurts me a lot to be forced to do this.-
Anyway, congratulations to the winners! Send us an e-mail or a PM to get your reward! ^o^
