Discounts for new advertisers – via Patreon

Become a CONTACT Patron>
>

CONTACT is now on Patreon – a platform where fans can support what we do by becoming Patrons – like ‘an ongoing kick-starter’ for creators.

Patreon is a platform where Patrons can support what we do, simply because they want to. They value what we already offer for free and want to show a little (or a lot) of appreciation for what we do.

In return, CONTACT offers Patron Rewards – from a simple thank you to the “CONTACT Private” for pledging $2 per month, to complete advertising packages in the ‘senior officer ranks’.

Real advertising starts at “CONTACT Lieutenant Colonel” who gets a footer advertisement on our web site plus other accolades – to the Chief of the General Staff (of which there can be only one) who gets a complete advertising blitzkrieg across all our platforms – with a range of advertising rewards commensurate with every other rank in between.

 

Brass Tacks:

The following conditions, notes and explanations apply to advertising ‘rewards’ offered via our Patreon rank system.

NOTE: Patreon prices are in US Dollars and CONTACT’s normal prices are in Aussie Dollars. You can check today’s exchange rate here.

The following list outlines the advertising packages at each rank level and compares the Patreon rank package value (in US$) with the current listed price (in Aussie$) – check today’s exchange rate here.

Please note: We recently announced that the price of advertisements on our web site and in our newsletter will rise on 1 January 2018. However, the above Patreon tier costs will not increase – which means the comparative value of each package will.

Also, please don’t underestimate the intrinsic value of being seen and hailed as a ‘Patron’ of CONTACT.

 

Commitment is per month

  • listings on web site and magazine Patron Pages will remain live for as long as the Patreon commitment is live – and will be removed as soon as the Patreon commitment is cancelled
  • web site advertisement rewards will remain in place for as long as the Patreon commitment remains in place – and will be removed as soon as the Patreon commitment is cancelled
  • newsletter and magazine advertisements will only be placed if the Patreon commitment is current at the time of the advertisement
  • magazine advertisements will only be placed after the Patreon commitment has been live for 3 months minimum (other than by specific arrangement)
  • all other Advertising Terms and Conditions (except payment arrangements) apply to advertisements booked via Patreon
  • the payment difference between these Patreon rank packages and our regular listed prices is that the Patreon packages are paid (in US$) by standing order via the Patreon platform either via credit card or PayPal – and our standard advertising packages are paid against standard invoices (in Aussie$).
  • currency-exchange-rate fluctuations are an inherent ‘gamble’ in this system, but advertisers can cancel at any time and convert to standard packages (being careful not to cause ‘pro-rata’ discrepancies (e.g. a minimum of 3-months Patreon payments are required to cover a magazine advertisement)).
