Advertise Here - my advertising policy

If you wish to advertise here on Frugal Living Freedom, please become familiar with my advertising policy.

What it's all about

Frugal Living Freedom is a place where people come to learn about good stewardship of financial resources, frugal use of hard-earned money, living a more self-sufficient and self-directed life, and becoming debt free.

Visitors are treated with respect and their inquiries and suggestions are carefully considered and responded to by the author/publisher personally.

Visitors are attracted to the site through promotion from solid on-line and hard copy articles, guest posts, discussion in forums and links from like-minded sites. First time visitors tend to come back because of quality content, careful editing, regular updating of materials, and appropriate photos, video and audio to enhance their user experience.

Like any website with valuable information, there are bills to be paid for hosting and audio/visual resources necessary to create content. It’s also reasonable to compensate the author for time and effort associated with creating, editing and updating articles and the site in general.

Therefore, as part of the advertising policy, the publisher uses Google Adsense and Chitika Premium as preferred content sensitive advertising to offset the cost of producing the website. Other advertisers are also encouraged to advertise here when their products and services have reasonable potential to contribute value to visitor traffic, and don’t otherwise create an unpleasant experience or unwarranted distraction for visitors.

Ad Formats

Floating ads, pop ups, video, mouse-over audio and otherwise annoying or harassing media are not generally accepted for inclusion since they detract from an otherwise pleasant and user-directed experience.

All text and image ads similar to Adsense are acceptable as long as they naturally blend well with text and photos of the site. No ads will be placed in the margins of the website.

Any ad submitted for acceptance must be in good taste and blend well with the principal content of the page selected for inclusion. In-context text link ads are preferred as they are easiest to blend with content. Consistent with Google policy, paid links will be "no-follow," so if you're looking to artificially enhance your page ranking through a paid link, you'll have to look elsewhere.

The Process

Select the page and location on the page where they would an ad to appear. The publisher has final approval of ad content, placement and product/service offered. No more than one ad of the same topic will be posted on a page. No more than five ads of the same topic will be posted on the site. This eliminates competing ads and reduces repetition for visitors.

To reduce administrative burden, and allow advertisers to gain exposure and value as site traffic builds, this site gives preference to advertisers that place an ad here for one year.

There certainly is a broad scope of topics here at Frugal Living Freedom. When you think about it, money permeates so very many activities in our lives, therefore, being frugal encompasses a wide range of interests, from being employed to taking a vacation, and just about everything in between. Enjoy the variety, pick up some new ideas, and start making frugality a part of your signature.

I'm a big proponent of being debt-free, and I mean entirely debt-free - no mortgage payment. It's not essential for financial freedom, but you'll love the feeling once you get there. If you didn't have a rent or mortgage payment, how much more could you do for yourself with your current level of income? I suspect plenty.

If you ever hope to see an abundance of wealth, you need to plug the hole in your boat. The wealthy don't necessarily make lots of money, instead, they know how to hang onto what they make, and make it work for them.
