Hi everyone. I’d like to ask for help from you, the readers of Critics Round Up.
First of all, there’s no reason to worry about the future of the site at the moment. The numbers are so much better now than they were a month ago when I was strongly considering quitting. But in the hope of generating money for the time and effort I put into this site, I’m asking for help. Critics Round Up is looking for sponsors. If you have something you’d like to advertise, get in touch with me.
If you have nothing to promote, I hope you would be kind enough to consider making a donation to support the site. If you can’t make a donation, could you spread the word about Critics Round Up? A month ago, I wrote that that wouldn’t be necessary, but I didn’t mean to imply that recommending the site would be unwelcome and I feel bad if I sounded ungrateful about the efforts people have made on behalf of the site. I just didn’t want to burden people with the pressure of telling others about CRU. But this helps big time. Any assistance on these three things (sponsorship, donations, recommendations) would be deeply appreciated.
One more thing: I’m also taking suggestions on websites that CRU should advertise on. I’d like to bring Critics Round Up to the attention of people who have a strong interest in old movies and foreign films. Twitter’s target-by-interest ads have worked really well, but I wonder if there are more effective places to raise awareness of this site.
