Default Help Wanted!!!

We are looking for a way to help subsidize the monthly cost of our server and be able to leave a bit extra for Mark's time.

In doing this we need your help!!!

1) We have come up with the Google Ads that are placed throughout the website that pays when a member click through an ad on the website. Although, please only click the ads if you are interested in the offer presented.

2) We have advertisers paying for banner ad space throughout the website.

3) Our newest way is using SendOutCards to send greeting cards in the mail.

Sendoutcards is neat way to send greeting cards to family and friends. If you send out Birthday, Anniversary, Sympathy and Christmas Cards the Internet is the best place to do it.

To try it, Follow this link to set up a free account, it is as easy as 1,2,3.



1) Add the mailing address of your contact person,
2) Pick the greeting card from a catalog of thousands...Add your special message.
3) Push the send button. That's it...you greeting card is in the mail.

Ok what's the catch, the greeting card cost is 2 points plus postage. Each point is .49 cents for a total of .98 cents and .41 cents postage in the US and 52 cents in Canada. Routerforums gets a percentage of the point cost of each the greeting card. To try this fabulous system we have given you some points and postage in your free account to send your first card.

We are asking if you already send out greeting card why not try this system and save a few bucks on card purchases plus help the Routerforums website.

Perhaps if we all click on the ads every time we log on, just a thought.

I apologize to everyone that thinks that we are desperate for cash, to clarify we are not. I just think that SOC is a painless way to send a greeting card to brighten someone's day and as a plus, help routerforums.com grow. I am sorry for trying to find things that are a win/win activity for members and the website. (routerforums.com)

On the Google ads: Please don't click the ads unless your interested in viewing the products or offers.

SOC is a great idea. How do we add points to our account?

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Sign up, then send your first card on Routerforums. Maybe pick a card and mail it to yourself. If you see value in this service purchase more points using your credit card...it's very simple.

Doing this could jeopardize the Google Adsense account that is posting the code on this website. You are not allowed to "encourage" clicking on ads just for the sake of getting clicks. Besides, you would be costing the advertiser money for a click that was not a valid inquiry. These "Adwords" marketers may pay anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars each time their ad is clicked. To me, as an affiliate marketer myself, find it ethically incorrect and would discourage everyone from clicking on Google Ads or Google Sponsored Links unless you have genuine interest in the product or service being offered.

Thanks,

Mr. Netnut is correct, RouterForums.com staff asks that you do not intentionally click the advertisements on the website, please only do so if you are interested in the content or offering of the advertisement.

Thanks guys
