February Report on Advertising and Fundraising using Mint Builder
From Paul Stramer
I am looking at the statistics from our efforts in February to fund this whole educational operation for Anna and the advertising budget. Mint Builder has allowed some increase in activity in promoting our Internet presence by our participation in their pay plan.
First, The Mint Builder company sent us $1000 in February from residual commissions for having over 80 people on autoship for their MS70 coins. We now have 701 of Anna's supporters as members of Mint Builder. If you don't know what Mint Builder is click this link:
We also received $2905.90 in donations from Anna's readers for the support of the Anna Von Reitz website and the LCW Blog. This is something of a record for one month from many small donations, and kind of a fluke compared to some previous months which ran far less than that. Thank you and God Bless you all for donating.
Now let me tell you where that all went.
In February alone we spent $1394.72 on direct advertising for list building using traffic exchanges, autoresponder systems, and banner ads on various ad systems, including Boost My Online Biz where we have almost 50,000 people now that we can send email to once a day, with about 160 new people coming in to just that one system every single day.
In February we have added another 168 new people to the mailing list of people who want the announcements of each new article when it comes out from Anna. That list is now 4521 people receiving those announcements. We started that list out of pocket about 3 years ago, using the AWeber email system with NO advertising budget for the first two years. That system now costs us about $800 per year. So part of your donations go to that every month.
We also have ongoing expenses for phone, electric power, office supplies, server costs, and local internet service provider fees, not to mention normal living expenses.
Lately I have been spending 10 to 12 hours per day in the office weekdays, and about 5 or 6 hours on Saturday. My office is in my home, in a separate room, with my Ham Radio Station.
The new super-computer that Anna's readers bought for me last spring continues to amaze me every day with it's speed and ease of operation. What used to take an hour or better, now takes about 15 minutes, as I get better at operating this beast. I could never have done this without that fabulous tool. Again, God Bless you all for that.
Just moderating the comments on the blog now takes a significant amount of time each day, so the old machine is relegated to almost nothing but email, and this new one, to things that I need to browse on the Internet for. They are hooked together on a local area network so I can load files from the old machine on this one for presentation on line.
We also spent $335.00 on the phone last month, mostly helping people with their Mint Builder business that generates some of this budget, or trying to answer your questions. I need to remind everyone that I am not any kind of legal scholar, and mostly contribute to the internet part of this, so I am not the best one to ask those kinds of legal questions of.
I promised to send Anna 25% of everything that Mint Builder generates and once the advertising budget is taken care of up to 50%. We will get there, and Monday I will send another $250 from that funding. I can envision a day down the road when we have several thousand people participating in Mint Builder and generating lots of financing for this effort.
Once again, thank you for all your support. If you can't do Mint Builder and help that way, perhaps you can consider using the PayPal button on either website, this one or www.annavonreitz.com
to donate. We are expanding our advertising every day now to build this educational effort.
We include you in our prayers every day.
